09:47 <tinloaf> i don't think that i have such a script.. i start it directly by starting a "boing_gui" executable
09:49 <xcamel> check your install.. you should have it.
09:49 <xcamel> then start boinc from the desktop via the 'run_manager' script
09:50 <xcamel> 5.8 is a little old, but useable...
09:51 <tinloaf> it's the latest what is in gentoo's portage ;-)

15:26 <yoyo[RKN]> PovAddict : is there a description of the 6.x graphic api?
15:27 <PovAddict> yes, in the same place the 5.x used to be
15:28 <yoyo[RKN]> is there a way to test the graphic without distributing it via the boinc server?
15:28 <Tank_Master> &quiet
15:28 <Romulus> Shhhhh... Day Sleepers
15:28 <PovAddict> running standalone opens the graphics
15:28 <PovAddict> that has always been like that
15:29 <yoyo[RKN]> but if the graphic displays the credits they are read from the xml file, which not exists in standalone mode?
15:30 <PovAddict> 0 for those, then
15:30 <PovAddict> if you want to do a full test, use anonymous platform on the client with real workunits
15:40 <xcamel> 6.x is NRPT

18:29 <zombie67> looks like superlink is about to start back up again.
18:41 <xcamel> eh?
18:47 <PovAddict> o rly
18:47 <PovAddict> still with insane requirements?
18:50 <zombie67> insane?
18:50 <zombie67> 1gb/wu were the requirements
18:50 <PovAddict> on its first days, it ate lots of RAM, used very big files, and took too little CPU time to be useful
18:51 <zombie67> new URL, project requirements on the front page: http://cbl-boinc-server2.cs.technion.ac.il/superlinkattechnion/
18:51 <PovAddict> got any work?
18:51 <zombie67> not yet.
18:52 <PovAddict> any idea of runtime?
18:53 <zombie67> I am trying to recall. If I remember correctly, they ran about one hour. could be wrong
18:53 <zombie67> ah! Are you thinking of scilink?
18:53 <PovAddict> ...maybe
18:53 <PovAddict> 'link' made me mix 'em up
18:53 <zombie67> scilink had results that generated thousands of files, and ran only a second or two
18:54 <zombie67> caused BOINC to lock up
18:54 <Romulus> Title: SciLINC (at www.scilinc.org)
18:54 <PovAddict> it's silly to produce multiple output files

21:22 <zombie67> hi mweltin!
21:22 <mweltin> hey
21:22 <mweltin> my dog is real sick
21:22 <zombie67> very quiet here
21:23 <zombie67> oh no!
21:23 <PovAddict> for the trash he ate?
21:23 <mweltin> he has a bowel obstruction.
21:23 <zombie67> how so?
21:23 <mweltin> yes
21:23 <zombie67> that's bad
21:23 <zombie67> surgery?
21:23 <mweltin> the only vet is in Apia until the 22nd
21:23 <zombie67> are you kidding me?!
21:23 <mweltin> just have to hope he pulls through on his own.
21:23 <mweltin> no
21:24 <zombie67> anything you can do to "draino" his bowles?
21:24 * PovAddict has a nasty mental image
21:24 <mweltin> he got an enema (sp?) and I gave him some fiber.
21:24 <zombie67> that will work on organic stuff
21:24 <mweltin> he can wakl, and still eats a little which is a good sign.
21:25 <mweltin> yeah, chances are good it's not organic.
21:25 <zombie67> problems occur when eating non-organic stringy stuff
21:25 <zombie67> can cause knotting
21:25 <zombie67> rubber bands, 6-pack plastic things
21:25 <mweltin> it may be styrofoam
21:26 <PovAddict> wtf
21:26 <zombie67> ugh
21:26 <zombie67> any way you could take him off island to get help?
21:26 <mweltin> not sure where i wuold go
21:26 <mweltin> next flight to hawaii is not until thursday.
21:27 <zombie67> what about japan or australia?
21:27 <mweltin> flights to Western can not take dogs his size.
21:27 <PovAddict> closer than the 22nd but still...
21:27 <PovAddict> get a vet to fly TO samoa?
21:27 <mweltin> not direct flights to those palces.
21:28 <zombie67> way to think outside the box POV!
21:28 <PovAddict> flights *from* Western can probably take *vets* of any size :)
21:28 <zombie67> tell them you'll take them diving!
21:28 <PovAddict> lol
21:28 <mweltin> diving is not that popular among samoans.
21:29 <mweltin> he is stable for the moment.
21:29 <zombie67> has there been no "production" at all?
21:29 <mweltin> he woke me up today moaning, and felt distended.
21:29 <mweltin> very little
21:30 <zombie67> do you have any pain killers?
21:30 <mweltin> yes, but I have not used them yet.
21:31 <zombie67> how can there be no vet?!
21:31 <zombie67> a replacemtn should come in before the local can leave
21:32 <mweltin> he is the agriculture vet.
21:32 <mweltin> does mostly pigs.
21:32 <mweltin> poeple here don't think of pets they way we do.
21:32 <zombie67> even more important, if livelyhood & industry requires his presence.
21:33 <mweltin> its crazy, back home dove lewis is a full ER for pets. X-ray, catscan, MRI, everything.
21:34 <PovAddict> oooo LHC work
21:34 <PovAddict> finally
21:34 <zombie67> up to 25k WIP
21:36 <zombie67> any human docs that could take a look?

21:38 * zombie67 hates waiting
21:39 <mweltin> this morning he couldn't even get up, and now he can. so at least he got a little better.
21:39 <mweltin> he is not out of the woods, but I'm hopeful
21:41 <PovAddict> hey look at the boincstats frontpage...
21:41 <zombie67> does doggy exlax exist?
21:41 <mweltin> you can give them milk of magnesia
21:41 <zombie67> I am there
21:41 <PovAddict> zombie67: the right column
21:41 <zombie67> seti old update?
21:41 <PovAddict> lower
21:42 <zombie67> I saw cori wish you a HB earlier.
21:44 <zombie67> what weight is your dog? Name again?
21:44 <mweltin> Einstein
21:45 <zombie67> does he have a nick name? or do you say the whole name every time?
21:45 <mweltin> boo
21:46 <zombie67> I have learned that any name over two sylables will guarentee a nickname
21:46 <mweltin> yup
21:46 <mweltin> sometimes I go with boo boo
21:47 <zombie67> my black lab is Shenandoah (I grew up in northern virginia). she gets called shanan
21:48 <mweltin> I had a guy comment that he thought the TSP was not a worth while BOINC project. And that after giving useless adivce on the subject of path generation.
21:49 <mweltin> I agree that just sovling one instance of a TSP is not very useful, but I think I'm tyring to do something a little deeper than that.
21:50 <zombie67> I agree
21:53 <mweltin> sometimes I don't think people grasp how big a search space a 48 city TSP is.
21:53 <zombie67> POV, I think LHC is done generating new work. WIP is dropping now.
21:53 <mweltin> he said my algorithm was in trouble if that was the best path found so far (looking at the webpage that shows the path)
21:54 <zombie67> I saw that.
21:54 *** Bad_At_Home has joined #boinc
21:55 <mweltin> i dont' think I even hit 1% of the paths yet.
21:55 <zombie67> the best path so far, is that based on the BF app?
21:56 <mweltin> yes
21:56 <zombie67> and what% of the possible paths have we done to date?
21:57 *** d00m1001 has joined #boinc
21:57 <zombie67> ah, 1%
21:57 <mweltin> I don't know I didnt' keep track of that.
21:57 <mweltin> I doubt it 15
21:57 <mweltin> 1%
21:58 <zombie67> perhpas you should put a "% complete" next to the pest path to date link?
21:58 <zombie67> having done only 1%, it should be expected that the best path isn't very good yet
22:00 <mweltin> PovAddict, I'm getting ready to launch the ga. I have only to run update_versions, which I'm waiting for and my assimilator is crashing out.
22:00 <mweltin> 2007-12-16 15:59:02.8545 [CRITICAL] Can't find app
22:00 <mweltin> i added the app to the database.

22:21 <zombie67> guess it's not over yet
22:22 <mweltin> PovAddict?
22:22 <mweltin> the creat_workunit function has an char** of "infiles"
22:23 <mweltin> does that include the workunit name?
22:23 <PovAddict> your "infiles" are the input files
22:23 <PovAddict> you probably need only one, right?
22:23 <mweltin> yes
22:24 <mweltin> but is it the workunit name, or the common name?
22:24 <PovAddict> then make an array with a single element
22:24 <mweltin> ga_in or ga_123443
22:24 <PovAddict> the second
22:24 <mweltin> ok
22:24 <PovAddict> create_work doesn't care about the open_name
22:25 <mweltin> ok
22:25 <mweltin> but its in there twice then.
22:25 <mweltin> doesnt matter.
22:28 <mweltin> ok something doesn't add up. why is infiles a const char**
22:28 <mweltin> strcpy(infiles, buffer);
22:28 <PovAddict> because it's an array of char*
22:28 <mweltin> this call errors out.
22:28 <PovAddict> ah it's const...
22:29 <mweltin> yeah, so how do I get around it being a const.
22:29 <PovAddict> dont make it a const... what's forcing you?
22:30 <mweltin> the example code declairs it a const
22:30 <mweltin> so I thought it had to be .
22:30 <PovAddict> the function probably asks for a const
22:30 <mweltin> yes it does
22:30 <PovAddict> you can pass a non-const to a const-expecting function, not the other way around
22:31 *** quail has joined #boinc
22:31 <mweltin> if I declari char ** infiles in my code I get this error -> error: initializing argument 5
22:31 <mweltin> If I make it a const as in const char** infiles I get an error when I try to use strcpy.
22:32 <PovAddict> wait you're in trouble right there anyway
22:32 <PovAddict> you are strcpying into where?

22:41 <Soul_keeper> those fools are all sleeping in there
22:41 <PovAddict> lol
22:41 <PovAddict> your fault for asking too late/early?
22:42 <Soul_keeper> and there are only so many questions you can ask in a large channel before being ridiculed and pointed to the manual/tutorial that you have been reading for 2 nights
22:43 <Soul_keeper> i'm just trying to display the contents of a file to a text window
22:43 <mweltin> PovAddict, this just isn't working, I'll have to come back to it later.
22:43 <mweltin> thanks for your help
22:43 <Soul_keeper> but it seems nothing will ever be easy ...

23:14 <MTughan> zombie67: Do you know any programs to rip a CD/DVD to a disk image? So a .dmg, .cdr, or a .iso.
23:14 <PovAddict> dd :)
23:15 <MTughan> Tried.
23:15 <PovAddict> dd if=/dev/cdrom of=file.iso # should work
23:15 <MTughan> Invalid file.
23:15 <PovAddict> replace /dev/cdrom with whatever is correct on a mac...
23:21 <zombie67> back
23:21 <zombie67> what now?
23:21 <MTughan> I want to rip a disk image of a DVD.
23:21 <MTughan> Vista to be precise.
23:21 <zombie67> oh, thought you were talking osx
23:22 <PovAddict> he is
23:22 <MTughan> I want to rip the Vista DVD on OS X.
23:22 <zombie67> he said vista
23:22 <MTughan> For installation in a VM.
23:22 <zombie67> disk utiliuty won't do it?
23:23 <MTughan> I think it will for an internal drive, but it's an external USB drive.
23:23 <zombie67> ?
23:23 <PovAddict> ohh USB DVD drive?
23:23 <MTughan> Yeah.
23:23 <zombie67> still should work
23:23 <MTughan> And Disk Utility seems f'ed up.
23:23 <MTughan> It won't rip it.
23:23 <zombie67> DU will format thumb drives
23:23 <PovAddict> "Most actual hardware devices, however, such as USB and FireWire devices are not handled with block or character devices in Mac OS X."
23:24 <MTughan> PovAddict: It's /dev/disk3.
23:24 <zombie67> toast?
23:24 <zombie67> handbreak?
23:25 <MTughan> I don't have Toast, Handbrake is for videos.
23:25 <PovAddict> MTughan: what does dd say?
23:25 <zombie67> er, once the dvd is mounted, it should look like any other volume
23:25 <MTughan> dd works fine, but it won't mount.
23:25 <PovAddict> MTughan: what won't mount?
23:25 <MTughan> The ISO.
23:25 <PovAddict> MTughan: the iso you get? hmm
23:26 <zombie67> why must it be via USB?
23:26 <MTughan> Sorry, Firewire.
23:26 <zombie67> why must it be via FW?
23:27 <zombie67> why must it be on a mac?
23:27 <zombie67> I still don't underthand the problem
23:27 <MTughan> Firewire, because I don't have any other interface. Mac, because that's where the VM is.
23:28 <zombie67> But you can rip it on any machine, and then transfer the iso to the mac.
23:28 <MTughan> Can you rip a DVD on Linux then?
23:28 <PovAddict> yes, using dd
23:28 <MTughan> Anything besides dd?
23:28 <PovAddict> k3b probably can
23:29 <zombie67> the mahine with the VM does not have to be the same machine doing the ripping
23:29 <MTughan> All right, hold on. Trying dd once more.
23:29 <MTughan> If not, I'll try Linux.
23:30 <PovAddict> lol
23:30 <PovAddict> "Will the current K3B be renamed K4B when the release of Qt4 is realized and KDE is based on it? Or let me put it this way...Why the `3' in K3B?"
23:30 <PovAddict> "The '3B' is short for 'Burn, Baby, burn'. So it will probably not be changed."
23:33 <MTughan> I actually found a program that ripped the XP CD to an ISO successfully, but for some reason, the author only made it for CDs, not DVDs.
23:33 <MTughan> 1.39GB ripped...
23:33 <PovAddict> can't vmware see the real DVD?
23:33 <PovAddict> it can on windoze
23:33 <MTughan> I wish...
23:33 <MTughan> No. >_>
23:33 <PovAddict> VMware on windoze can be pointed to a .iso or a real disc drive
23:34 <MTughan> The only drive it sees is my busted internal drive.
23:34 <MTughan> Yeah, that's why I need an ISO.
23:34 <PovAddict> busted? o.o
23:34 <MTughan> It's been busted for over a year now..
23:34 <PovAddict> and your HDD problem...
23:34 <MTughan> WTF? The drive's listed now...
23:34 <zombie67> PS3GRID has a thumb drive with linux and BOINC ready to go
23:35 <PovAddict> you know, some people would be ranting against Apple about right now if they had had your problems :)
23:35 <MTughan> Oh, maybe one thing... Other times I've tried it, the disc has been mounted.
23:35 <zombie67> is this a PPC or intel mac?
23:35 <MTughan> It's unmounted right now for dd.
23:35 <MTughan> Intel.
23:36 <MTughan> Disk images aren't arch-specific though.
23:36 <zombie67> so, what are you trying to do with a busted HD?
23:36 <zombie67> shouldn't you fix that first?
23:36 <MTughan> It's just the journal that seems busted actually.
23:36 <zombie67> whatever
23:36 <MTughan> But I can't mount or read the drive.
23:36 <zombie67> replace the HD
23:36 <PovAddict> zombie67: he got a new disk and reinstalled the OS
23:36 <MTughan> So I can't recover data.
23:37 <MTughan> 2.31GB ripped...
23:37 <zombie67> then you put the busted HD in an external case
23:37 <MTughan> zombie67: I'm so far ahead of you here.
23:37 <zombie67> I still don't see the problem
23:37 <zombie67> why are you messing with VMware?
23:38 <MTughan> What does a busted HD have to do with ripping a DVD?
23:38 <MTughan> zombie67: I'm installing a new VM...
23:38 <PovAddict> and what does a busted HD have to do with VMware?
23:38 <zombie67> how? when there is no HD to install it on
23:38 <PovAddict> zombie67: he got a new disk and reinstalled the OS
23:38 <MTughan> What do you think I'm running now?
23:38 <PovAddict> a floppy!
23:39 <MTughan> lol
23:39 <PovAddict> ...aren't you?
23:39 <zombie67> so you have a new HD, and have OSX installed?
23:39 <MTughan> You know Macs haven't come with floppies for years now...
23:39 <MTughan> zombie67: Just an external 500GB drive for now.
23:39 <PovAddict> zombie67: yes, and the busted HDD is... waiting for a miracle, on a corner
23:39 <PovAddict> MTughan: wtf do you mean "just"
23:39 <MTughan> lol
23:39 <PovAddict> I have a total of 160GB
23:39 <zombie67> just swap the HDs
23:40 <MTughan> With all my hard drives together, I have 1.4TB. :P
23:40 <MTughan> zombie67: When you can stick a 3.5" HD in a laptop, call me.
23:40 <PovAddict> hmm how easily can you swap external and internal disks on a laptop?
23:40 <zombie67> so you have NOT replaced the HD
23:40 <PovAddict> ...and the size :)
23:40 <MTughan> Easily, but a 3.5" is a tight fit for a laptop.
23:40 <PovAddict> zombie67: he hasn't, physically
23:40 <zombie67> going back to step #1: Fix the HD
23:41 <MTughan> Look, the HD has nothing to do with ripping a DVD.
23:41 <zombie67> so why are you messing with VMware?
23:41 <PovAddict> zombie67: because he wants to
23:42 <MTughan> How are they related?
23:42 <zombie67> no clue
23:42 <zombie67> what is wrong wirth your internal DVD?
23:42 <MTughan> F***... I got Vista DVD working in VMware, and now I need to install XP first. >_>
23:42 <PovAddict> MTughan: oh yours is upgrade disc?
23:42 <MTughan> zombie67: Can't put discs into it. I don't know what's wrong.
23:42 <MTughan> PovAddict: Yes.
23:42 <zombie67> *&^$$*!!
23:43 <zombie67> then the problem is your DVD player, not your HD
23:43 <zombie67> why are we talking about HDs???
23:43 <PovAddict> .....
23:43 <MTughan> You brought it up.
23:43 <zombie67> I did not
23:43 <MTughan> Yeah, you did.
23:43 <PovAddict> zombie67: totally different problems: 1. the DVD drive has been broken for a year; 2. the hard disk recently stopped working; 3. he had problems ripping a DVD from an external drive, now he can
23:44 <MTughan> Gah, he's right... ISO is fine. ?
23:44 <MTughan> How the heck it worked now, I have no idea.
23:44 <PovAddict> 1. was a year ago, 2. was weeks ago, 3. was minutes ago
23:44 *** BiteAbleKat has quit IRC
23:44 <zombie67> show me where I brought the HD
23:44 <zombie67> I was talking about disk utility
23:45 <PovAddict> (1:36:09) zombie67: so, what are you trying to do with a busted HD?
23:45 <zombie67> I did not bring up the busted HD
23:45 <zombie67> I was trying to solve ripping a dvd
23:45 <MTughan> You're right, PovAddict did. But you took on it.
23:45 <PovAddict> I just commented "and your problems with the HDD"
23:46 <zombie67> no wonder I was confused
23:46 <MTughan> Wow... I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. Copying a 4GB VM drive takes quite a long time over USB.
23:47 <zombie67> usb suxors
23:47 <PovAddict> what's on the other end?
23:47 <zombie67> FW is so much better
23:47 <MTughan> It's a SATA drive, but I don't have any SATA ports to hook it up.
23:47 <PovAddict> ah the drive...
23:47 <MTughan> zombie67: USB has a higher burst speed. Firewire's not all that much faster.
23:47 <PovAddict> I thought it was from another machine, so I was going to suggest compressing it first :)
23:48 <zombie67> FW is better at sustained high speed
23:48 <PovAddict> a vhd usually compresses well...
23:48 <zombie67> don't let the specs fool you
23:48 <PovAddict> USB3 FTW
23:48 <MTughan> And besides, I couldn't get an enclosure with USB, eSATA, and FW. Damn companies...
23:48 <zombie67> did you look at OWC?
23:48 <MTughan> For what?
23:49 <zombie67> an enclosure with USB, eSATA, and FW
23:49 <MTughan> No, I didn't.
23:49 <MTughan> I don't order stuff online.
23:50 <MTughan> Besides, I've had this enclosure before I even got my Macbook.
23:50 <zombie67> you don't order online? serioulsy?
23:50 <MTughan> Yeah. What's the problem with that?
23:50 <zombie67> nothing, for 1980
23:51 <MTughan> Well, my Mac was another matter, but that was my dad who placed the order.
23:51 <MTughan> zombie67: Not having a credit card is a major setback in that situation...
23:51 <zombie67> ah
23:51 <PovAddict> zombie67: MTughan is around my age remember
23:51 <MTughan> Both 17.
23:51 <zombie67> I assumed you were anti-tech
23:51 <zombie67> ah
23:52 <MTughan> Although I'm about 6 months older than him.
23:52 <PovAddict> MTughan: I'm 17 since 1h 52m ago
23:52 <zombie67> you know, the aluminimum hat freaks
23:52 <MTughan> I know, I read it on ##konfabulator.
23:52 <PovAddict> but you didn't say anything <.<
23:52 <PovAddict> :P
23:52 <MTughan> Because this is where I started talking after I came home.
23:53 <MTughan> I was gone for about 5-6 hours.
23:53 <PovAddict> a friend offered to take me to a hooker as birthday present... I was like WTF?
23:53 <MTughan> O... kay?
23:53 <PovAddict> lol
23:54 <MTughan> Oops... That wasn't a smart idea.
23:54 <Romulus> Title: 3.5-inch SATA to USB2.0 & FireWire800 & eSATA HDD Enclosure SATA-PRO-35AXC LOW PRICE $99.93 (at www.usbgear.com)
23:55 <PovAddict> did you delete your vhd?: )
23:55 <PovAddict> :)*
23:55 <MTughan> For some reason, the "bus adapter" seems to be different in the XP drive.
23:55 <PovAddict> $99 wow...
23:55 <zombie67> but it has esata, usb, and FW
23:56 <MTughan> zombie67: Now see, if that drive had been available a year and a half ago, I probably would've gotten it.
23:56 <zombie67> you wanted esata connector too?
23:56 <MTughan> Yeah, I did. This one has eSATA and USB.
23:56 <zombie67> that is just a box. you put your hd in side it
23:56 <PovAddict> I saw USB feet heaters
23:56 <PovAddict> and a toaster
