00:11 <MTughan> FreeLarry: Actually, those aren't too bad at all.

00:16 <FreeLarry> for 2.66Ghz processor?

00:18 <MTughan> Let me see what my 2.0GHz gets.

00:18 <MTughan> Oh, that is low...

00:19 <FreeLarry> 12/25/2007 9:04:20 PM||   1887 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU

00:19 <efc> probably had a game or something running during that benchmark

00:19 <MTughan> This is OS X with a compile running with a 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo.

00:20 <efc> Hmm, my other P4 hasn't checked in since November

00:20 <MTughan> I'm recompiling BOINC libraries and expat for x86_64 and ppc64 now that I have Leopard.

00:20 <FreeLarry> first is nix on the c2d machine

00:20 <MTughan> Oh yeah, those should be way higher.

00:21 <efc> doh, i've had networking suspended on that thing for who knows how long

00:21 <MTughan> lol

00:21 <efc> have to babysit it too much

00:22 <efc> If I don't, it will very reliably lag me out during a game

00:24 <FreeLarry> lol yah

00:26 <FreeLarry> darn thought i changed the domain name of that machine - it still reporting as localhost.localdomain

00:26 <MTughan> Crud, I hate errors...

00:27 <FreeLarry> ah more experience for you MTughan

00:27 *** Celelaptop has quit IRC

00:27 <MTughan> Not when it's in the BOINC libraries.

00:28 <FreeLarry> yuck

00:28 <MTughan> And it's an architecture-specific issue.

00:28 <FreeLarry> double yuck - start building new lib

00:48 <MTughan> All right, well that architecture isn't supported by BOINC anyway, so I won't bother. It was PPC 64-bit for OS X.

00:48 <MTughan> I've got an Intel 64-bit anyway, so I'm fine with that.

08:01 <quail> yep

08:02 <CoderForANewYear> it's looking better for my sister, at least medically - she will probably live, and will probably not lose her legs - her husband on the other hand is trying to give her a heart attack

08:03 *** IdleOne has joined #boinc

08:35 <CoderForANewYear> I'm going over personal finances this morning - domain name registrations, museum expenses, etc

08:36 <xcamel> you should give it a rest - go relax...

08:36 <quail> I have to pay for my domain next week

08:36 <CoderForANewYear> thanks for the prescription - I needed to turn in some expenses, and avoid losing some domain names

08:37 <CoderForANewYear> also researching replacing a shade in the dining room bay window

08:38 <CoderForANewYear> if I didn't work on this kind of stuff, I don't know what I

08:40 <xcamel> lol - you're as bad a me.

08:40 <CoderForANewYear> I spent $414 on behalf of the museum earlier in the year - need either reimbursement or a tax deduction

08:40 <CoderForANewYear> I think I am a lot like you

08:40 <xcamel> I make too much to even get any deductions anymore

08:41 <xcamel> so I don't worry about them..

08:41 <CoderForANewYear> except I'm not like you in that way =)

08:41 <CoderForANewYear> but I'm trying

08:42 <xcamel> well.. It's impossible to explain to normal people. What I make, and what I take home have no relation to each other...

08:52 <xcamel> OSX and winduhs, side by side..

08:53 <CoderForANewYear> the world would have been a better place if Apple had challenged Microsoft when they developed Windows

08:53 <xcamel> hopefully Chris's will show up today...

08:53 <quail> xcamel: no linux wtf!?

08:53 <xcamel> OSX is close enough..

08:54 <xcamel> she is **not** a 'techie'

08:54 <CoderForANewYear> I know lots of open source people that swear by Mac

08:54 <CoderForANewYear> not swear *at*

08:55 <quail> alot network admin people use OSX

08:55 <xcamel> I was impressed with bootcamp, and how fast it installed XPpro

08:55 <xcamel> just a 32gb fat32 partition

08:55 <CoderForANewYear> leave it to Apple to understand Windows better than MS

08:56 <xcamel> now I have to put the openoffice on the mac side, and msoffice on the other..

08:56 <CoderForANewYear> I hear a contest coming

08:56 <quail> xcamel: put OO.o on both sides

10:32 *** HeXiLeD has joined #boinc

10:33 <HeXiLeD> im using boinc with linux and  i am wondering if we can specify an hard drive to be used with it.  since boinc will inform us of HD space and how much is taken; can we choose which HD or patition to use?

10:35 <quail> HeXiLeD: yes you can it depends were you install it to

10:36 *** ChristianB has joined #boinc

10:36 <HeXiLeD> humm.. so .. it deppends on the install  and not something we can change after install  or specify with some setings change

10:36 <PovAddict> "install"?

10:36 <PovAddict> move the directory

10:37 <PovAddict> (unless you used some silly distro package)

10:37 <HeXiLeD> funny funny .  and ya

10:37 <HeXiLeD> will have to ask to  the devs to work on that issue

10:38 <PovAddict> I see no issue...

10:38 <PovAddict> move the whole directory where you installed boinc into somewhere else

10:38 <PovAddict> if you used a distro package that spread boinc all over your system, then boinc devs won't be any help, ask whoever packaged it

10:39 <HeXiLeD> # Directory with runtime data: Work units, project binaries, user info etc.

10:39 <HeXiLeD> RUNTIMEDIR="/var/lib/boinc"

10:39 <HeXiLeD> might be this

10:39 <HeXiLeD> not sure. will check

10:39 <PovAddict> yeah that is it

10:39 <quail> HeXiLeD: you using distro based install?

10:40 <quail> HeXiLeD: or did you download boinc from the boinc site?

10:40 <HeXiLeD> yes. distro .  gentoo . it was compiled from source

10:42 <quail> HeXiLeD: backup your work for boinc and piss it off and install boinc from the boinc web site and then re enstate your project data

10:42 <PovAddict> hmm wait...

10:42 <quail> and restart boinc from the new location

10:42 <PovAddict> what version of boinc did you get from gentoo?

10:42 <HeXiLeD> i am also 64bit OS. i ve read that  there are some problems with 64 bits OS

10:43 <ChristianB> Hi boys

10:43 <HeXiLeD> boinc-5.8.15

10:44 <HeXiLeD> what  is the lastest ? and doing manual install, cant it be added to xinetd ?

10:44 <PovAddict> why do you need inetd?

10:44 <quail> 5.10.28 *nix/32/64

10:45 <PovAddict> you don't need any port open to the outside

10:46 <HeXiLeD> i know. but the point is to have it running as a system service.

10:46 <PovAddict> ./boinc --daemon

10:46 <PovAddict> done

10:46 <HeXiLeD> everytime i reboot ?

10:46 <PovAddict> well no, you need to make it run that on boot

10:47 <PovAddict> I still don't see how that is related to xinetd which is specifically made for internet services that open ports

10:48 <HeXiLeD> well let me put it this way. with the gentoo ebuilt i can have the client set to auto start on every boot. rc-update add boinc default . this will auto start  the client  on boot  and i dont have to run any manual cmd to start it myself

10:49 <HeXiLeD> so i was wondering of something similar to that . some sorte of rc script

10:49 <PovAddict>

10:49 <Romulus> Title: AutoStart - BOINC - Trac (at

10:49 <HeXiLeD> checkin'

10:50 <quail> HeXiLeD: have a read here >>>

10:50 <Romulus> <> (at

10:50 <quail> HeXiLeD: it bit old but it will help you out

10:50 <PovAddict> does gentoo use the same init.d system?

10:51 <quail> and give you a good bases to start from

10:51 <HeXiLeD> same ?

10:51 <HeXiLeD> /etc/init.d/<service>

10:51 <quail> PovAddict: i can't answer that one

10:51 <HeXiLeD> start / stop / restart

10:52 <PovAddict> yeah that's what quail's script does... except it should be using --daemon instead of  > boinc.log &

10:52 <quail> PovAddict: it an old script

10:53 <quail> and I don't use it anymore

10:53 <quail> I use a script that written by a french guy

10:54 <HeXiLeD> ok another question. since i started boinc i had my OS freezing. in not suire if its boinc related .. but it did happen a few times. ( i am also working on other issues that might have cause that freezing) . has anyone reported their 64 bit OS to freeze because of boinc ?

10:54 <quail> and the script tell you progress etc use bash terminal

10:54 <PovAddict> how much RAM do you have?

10:55 <PovAddict> boinc processes run at high nice value, so I doubt it's because of CPU

10:55 <HeXiLeD> 1GB DDR2 667mhz + 2 gb swap

10:55 <PovAddict> somebody reported having some lag because of a slow memory controller too

10:55 <PovAddict> what project(s) are you running?

10:55 <HeXiLeD> roseta

10:56 <PovAddict> hmm do you have boinc running right now?

10:56 <PovAddict> check how much ram it's using

10:56 <HeXiLeD> no. its off to try to figure if where the freezing problem is. if the system stays stable for while with out it i will try later

10:56 <quail> PovAddict: boinc uses bugger all ram look at the roseta client

10:57 <HeXiLeD> bugger?

10:57 <PovAddict> quail: if he has boinc off, he obviously doesn't have rosetta running either :)

10:57 <quail> HeXiLeD: have you noticed you machine using swap?

10:57 <HeXiLeD> it uses it all the times

10:58 <quail> HeXiLeD: you need more ram

10:58 <HeXiLeD> so.. it might be boinc ?

10:58 <PovAddict> or another project... rosetta is kinda hungry last time I checked

10:58 <quail> HeXiLeD: maybe

10:58 <HeXiLeD> humm. im only trying roseta

10:58 <quail> HeXiLeD: try seti

10:59 <HeXiLeD> i also customized boinc prefs on the site to use only what  i wanted it to use

11:00 <quail> HeXiLeD: linux should not be hitting the swap unless it doing something really intence

13:20 <MTughan> Well, this wireless connection is just f***ing useless...

13:21 <PovAddict> another disk fubar?

13:22 <MTughan> This was the original disk that came with my Mac, the first one I screwed up.

13:22 <MTughan> I thought it was just a messed up journal, but the disk has a bad sector it seems...

13:22 <PovAddict> can you connect the disk to a PC?

13:22 <MTughan> So time to go out and get another disk... *sigh*

13:22 <MTughan> Yeah, why?

13:23 * PovAddict puts his pirate eye patch

13:23 <PovAddict> well there's this software to recover disks...

13:23 <MTughan> Let me guess though: NTFS.

13:23 <MTughan> This is HFS+.

13:23 <PovAddict> doesn't give a crap what filesystem is inside

13:24 <PovAddict> "is able to operate on all Windows XP NTFS formats, all DOS FAT, all Linux file systems, Novell, Macintosh (if temporarily moved into a PC) or anything else — it can even be used to repair and recover the hard drive from an ailing TiVo"

13:24 <MTughan> What is it called?

13:25 <PovAddict> SpinRite

13:26 <MTughan> And what OS does it run on?

13:26 <PovAddict> DOS, in order to get really low-level access to the disk

13:27 <PovAddict> it makes a livecd or floppy with FreeDOS and the software itself

13:27 <MTughan> For fucks sake! Wireless dropped yet AGAIN!!! ARGHHHH!!!

15:58 <dererk> Hi there!

15:59 <dererk> I've a question: recently, my boincmgr says "Ready to inform" upon a job that was finnished, but it has passed about 4 hours and it's still there

15:59 <dererk> now they are 9 jobs finnished saying that

15:59 <dererk> (On SETI)

16:00 <PovAddict> they will report when they feel like it

16:01 <dererk> heh :)

16:01 <PovAddict> it's way more efficient to contact the server once reporting 10 tasks than contacting the server 10 times each reporting only one

16:02 <dererk> I hope to

16:02 <PovAddict> so it's better to "accumulate" some and report them all together

16:02 <dererk> It's just I though it was some kind of problem or sort of

16:03 <dererk> PovAddict, great then :D

16:03 <PovAddict> well, if the server was down, and the client tried to report them, it would fail, and they would wait more

16:03 <PovAddict> but I doubt that's the case

16:03 <PovAddict> well... maybe

16:04 <xcamel> dererk: or... go to the project tab, hilight that project, and click update..

16:05 <dererk> xcamel, did that about 100 times

17:25 <CoderForANewYear> I know - I'm swimming upstream

19:45 <efc> Have you messed with those wood pellet stoves any X? Or any other kind

19:46 <efc> Its one of those things I'll probably want some day.. would be cool to hook it into the HVAC and water heating

19:50 <xcamel> I have had a pellet furnace and a small pellet stove for about 10 years.

19:51 <xcamel> I heat 100% with the p furnace - including all hot water from dec 1 to mar 1

19:57 <xcamel> nutz..

19:57 <xcamel> is down.

19:58 <efc> Nice

19:58 <efc> Would be really nice if you can pellatize junk wood lying around, which we have a ton of

19:58 <xcamel> my furnace is a treager - not sure if they make them anymore

19:59 <xcamel> mostly that's what they do to make pellets - the wood they get is too nasty to use for much else...

20:00 <efc> We have a wood stove, but its just doing forced-air heating in the living room

20:00 <xcamel> the little thelin gnome stove I have upstairs works the same way...

20:36 <efc> The pellets seem to come out to 4.1 c / KWHr equivilent

20:36 <efc> Pretty good, although in moderate climates a heat pump can probably do better

20:45 <xcamel> in most areas, wood pellets are tax free

20:46 <xcamel> for heating...

20:46 <xcamel> so you can stick it to da man...

20:46 <efc> Nice

20:46 <xcamel> you could burn corn too...

20:47 <xcamel> but I'm not a big fan of that..

20:48 <efc> We used to grow it. But I guess you'd have to process it in some way.

23:44 <MTughan> Has to be an Athlon?

23:44 <PovAddict> but I'm running winders

23:44 <MTughan> And I'm behind a firewall...

23:44 <Soul_keeper> yeah i've tested my benchmark on p4's and c2d's already

23:44 <MTughan> Ah, I see.

23:44 <MTughan> How 'bout Core Duo?

23:45 *** Celelibi_ has joined #boinc

23:45 *** Celelaptop_ has joined #boinc

23:45 <Soul_keeper> i'd try a c2q

23:45 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: well, a good way of getting lots of testers is running it as a boinc project for a while :)

23:45 <Soul_keeper> maybe i should do that

23:45 <Soul_keeper> not a bad idea

23:45 <MTughan> Heh, I want either a C2Q or a Phenom to upgrade my P4...

23:45 <PovAddict> I wonder how to avoid a user from computing *too* many, which would be a waste

23:46 <PovAddict> one WU per computer per version is enough

23:46 <MTughan> Have to get $1000 first...

23:46 <PovAddict> bed -->

23:46 <MTughan> Bye.

23:47 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: It's a Windows app, or are you just timing a process?

23:47 <Soul_keeper> it's linux only for now

23:48 <MTughan> Which explains how you could get a shell...

23:48 <Soul_keeper> i ran it on FreeLarry's system earlier

23:48 <Soul_keeper> he had a c2d

23:48 <MTughan> Yeah, I've got Linux, but it's the P4 machine.

23:48 <MTughan> 2.8GHz with HT enabled.

23:49 <Soul_keeper> that's pretty much the same as the machine i'm on

23:49 <MTughan> Suppose you could try the Core Duo via a virtual machine...

23:49 <Soul_keeper> nah it's ok

23:49 <PovAddict> not much use inside a vm I think

23:49 * PovAddict gets out of here 4 real

23:49 <Soul_keeper> :)

23:50 <MTughan> I was thinking you could possibly get a shell session on a Windows computer running MinGW/Cygwin, but you still wouldn't be able to run your app.

23:51 <Soul_keeper> yeah i need to compile it also

23:51 <Soul_keeper> would need to be linux native

23:51 <MTughan> MinGW and Cygwin both come with GCC.

23:52 <Soul_keeper> you can try it if you want ...

23:52 <Soul_keeper>

23:52 <Romulus> <> (at

23:54 <MTughan> That's the main reason people use either one.

23:54 <MTughan> I'm just thinking about ways to do it. I don't have a Windows installation handy.

23:54 <MTughan> PovAddict could possibly do it that way though.
