On your home page, it shows the text:


Join with your Nvidia graphics card (beta)

* Read our rules and policies
* Install the latest graphics driver from Nvidia. (Check compatible Nvidia graphics cards)
* Download and install the GPU-enabled BOINC client. (Only Linux 64 supported)
* When prompted, enter http://www.gpugrid.net


However, when I enter "http://www.gpugrid.net" it complains and says

You entered the wrong URL for this project. The correct URL is http://www.ps3grid.net/ Using the wrong URL can cause problems in some cases. When convenient, detach from this project, then reattach to http://www.ps3grid.net/


I ended up detaching from gpugrid and attaching to ps3grid and now it is no longer complaining.

Can you either fix the instructions, or make it not display the warning message in my BOINC client?

Thanks.

On the home page there's no link to the page where installing Yellow Dog Linux is explained anymore.

It's just a warning from the BOINC client. You can use both url for now until we provide a proper new name. Don't worry about the warning.

The instruction is on the page for the playstation 3 and on the forum too in the FAQ section.

I'm sorry, but I also can't find a Link to the instructions for installing YDL, or a Link to the PS3 on the mainpage of http://www.ps3grid.net?

[edit] Ahh, just found them in the instructions for the live Linux...

I found them in Google's cache: http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:EX7RW9G2pWwJ:www.ps3grid.net/install_linux.php+otheros.bld+site:www.ps3grid.net&hl=nl&ct=clnk&cd=4&gl=nl
It mentions otheros.bld, whereas the FAQ version doesn't. Isn't this file necessary anymore?

No, it is not necessary on the latest firmware update.
