# Folding@Home Dockerfile for Nvidia GPUs
# Folding@Home Docker Image Builds for Nvidia GPUs [![Build Status](https://jenkins.home.keganmyers.com/buildStatus/icon?job=folding-at-home-docker-gpu)](https://jenkins.home.keganmyers.com/job/folding-at-home-docker-gpu/)
Folding@home is a project focused on disease research.
Right now, to the best of my knowledge, they are the
only GPU-based distributed computing project who
are running calculations against Coronavirus.
Here is a combination of [Nikolay Yurin's Folding@home Dockerfile](https://github.com/yurinnick/folding-at-home-docker)
and the [BOINC Nvidia Dockerfile](https://github.com/BOINC/boinc-client-docker),
so that you have an additional layer of sandboxing around
GPU computations of Folding@home. In case you are allowed
to use other people's computers, or your employer's,
using Docker containers might even be a requirement.
This is a fork of [this](https://github.com/wandhydrant/folding-at-home-docker-gpu)
repo with minor modifications to make pre-built images.
## Usage
### Build the image locally
I did not set up anything pre-built on the Docker hub.
Please inspect the Dockerfile and build the image yourself:
```
cd <git-checkout>
docker build -t my-fah-nvidia-image .
```
### and run it:
### Run it:
GPU access by containers went through several stages:
first direct export of /dev/dri and other devices; then

### (optional) Build the image yourself
If you do not wish to use pre-built images you can build it yourself:

cd <git-checkout>
docker build -t my-fah-nvidia-image .
