To be clear, nvidia users need to enable both foldingathome.service and foldingathome-nvidia.service.

Here is my version of foldingathome daemon script:

See my last comment on foldingathome-smp ( ) to know why.

Can you make the folding@home daemon depend on the nscd daemon? This will save people who forget to load nscd first (or want to load f@h in the background).

(Add "ck_daemon nscd && /etc/rc.d/nscd start" to the top of /etc/rc.d/foldingathome)

Yes the instructions after the end of install messed me up for a while too - please remove them or just add a pointer to the wiki.

Why do you recommend "Please cd to /opt/fah/ and execute ./fah6 -smp -configonly" in post_install()? This is inconsistent with the Wiki (causing confusion, at least to me) and installs/configures fah as root, which is discouraged. Explaining or at least pointing to the post-install steps in the Wiki is way better, IMHO, as those explain what's needed for running fah as another user.
