During the next hours and tomorrow, I will be updating the server software. Because this is best done with the server off line, I'm expecting the project to be down for one or more hours.

Ah good one, need to remember to disable that one. If it isn't disabled by default.

So far, haven't had luck with getting the news to show up.
Oh, and the scheduler error that you may get has something to do with the gui_urls.xml file that I added. I don't see where it's missing the close tag, all of mine are in place. But perhaps that it needs updated back-end software as well, so will test for that one first.

Hi all,

For the next couple of months I'll be taking over administrating this project. Having neigh on no experience with the BOINC back-end, I'm looking forward to it, if only for the added experience.

As the first thing, I have updated the forum software and merged the forums.
Then hacked the database to add the news forum. The script that should've done this didn't work. I am now trying to fix it so the news actually shows on the front page, not just in the 'old news' section.

There's no work as of yet. I'm busy trying to figure out how to get a Java application working with the new BOINC wrapper. But for this wrapper to work, we need more up-to-date BOINC server software, so guess what's next on the To-Do list?

I don't think there's been a credit dump in a long time. When I checked last weekend, some daemons were turned off, so I turned everything back on. I'll check in more detail again this weekend. Only got weekends to work on it. Sorry.

Hi all who are still, at times, passing through here to see if this project is still alive. We are still alive, it's just that you don't have to expect work too soon.

The past couple of weeks I have been busy getting to grips with preparations of how to update the BOINC server software. At the moment I type this, I am uploading some of the latest server software to the server, then I will compile it there and update at least the forums.

That's my plan for this weekend. Fingers crossed everything goes as planned.
For this update to work, I will have to bring down the project. So that's next on my list. I did already bring down the scheduler and other daemons. So that's why you cannot connect!

Now then, for the project we're looking for helping hands. When you have Java, C++ or Python programming experience and you don't mind helping out, even possible for a small fee, then please contact Andrey Voronkov. His email address can be found on the contact page.

With thanks.

I cancelled all WU. They should be gone within 24 hours.

I hope not.

It's just a big learning curve to install all the new stuff and run it without errors. And doing so in whatever little free time I still have. ;-)

I'm working on it, it's just slow going.

Yes, getting this thing back up was a bitch. But now that that's done, expect more down time, as we'll be updating the server before a restart of the project. No time frame for this, it's mostly done in what free time I can find.

As far as I can see, the 7zip archiving wrapper is failing on your system. An old culprit that's come back, perhaps? Something that Jack will have to look into.

Post:
I hope this is one of those problems that just go away. Like maybe too many files reporting at once. I'll see if it goes away in a few hours.

The default HTTP 404 error "File not found" means that the client was trying to contact the server, it got through OK, but the server doesn't know what to do with the request as it cannot find the file the client was asking for.

So either your CGI is derailed, or tasks in the database are gone before they're reported, or there's something else wrong. It is at least a server sided error.

I just did an update. It looks like your scheduler is missing.

When each project starting up would go ask WCG for money, server space, help and what not, then what's the use of the BOINC back-end and/or grid computing in general? All projects can stop trying to figure it out for themselves, be inventive, be unique and just turn to IBM/WCG and be absorbed.

Or perhaps just plain Ditto?

Or are you saying you're a hot dad, therefore a Diddo?

That tells me this 7za is not fully compatible with that 64-bit operating system.

Is it specifically not compatible with 64bit OS, or not compatible with a system that has more than 4GB of RAM? I can see how a 32bit application can have problems with the latter.

Interestingly the root can not find ldd :-)

Probably because it's not in the path /home/tux/Downloads
So make sure the ldd command is in your normal system path. Or the directory where it resides is.
36) Message boards : Number crunching : mdrun v1.11 (on linux32): "Error while computing" + "Aborted by user" (Message 1818)
Posted 22 Nov 2009 by Profile Ageless
Post:
1. on this pc: all 10 WUs were canceled immediately
it is told "Aborted by user", but I didn't, so probably "something" from the boinc client?

BOINC 6.10 will abort any work that isn't started yet and that is past its deadline. All automatically.

"Error while computing", process got signal 11

FAQ on this:

This error can be caused by the infamous segmentation error (SIGSEGV error), meaning that something broke, be it your memory, virtual memory (page file) or it's a bad batch of tasks.

Check your system with memtest86+, make your page file anew, keep a tab on whether you're the only one returning these errors, or that others have them at the same time as well. If you are the only one, it's something on your system, if there are lots more, it's a bad batch of work.

But it can also happen when you use a 64bit operating system, while the project you're getting the crashes on only gives out 32bit applications (such as Einstein does). Installing the ia32 library package will fix this problem. See also process exited with code 22 which is a similar error, on the application level.

BOINC client version 6.10.11

Why? BOINC 6.10.17 has been released to the public, update to at least that one.
6.10.11 was an alpha (development) version with lots of bugs still included. It may run OK on your system, but any weird things can easily be attributed to you running an outdated (October 4rd 2009) alpha version of the client.

If you never planned on being an Alpha tester anyway, stay away from Alpha versions. Even if it was only to run Collatz on your GPU, you should've updated to the release version by now. (I'm specifically not naming Milkyway, as the app there runs under the anonymous platform and will run on any version of BOINC).

Each bach is about 100.

There's your problem. How about some Mozart, Brahms, Verdi or Bizet instead? If you don't know, Offenbach is probably a safe bet.
