IRC logs of #boinc for Thursday, 2007-12-27

00:02 <MTughan> Wow, Leopard really uses more memory... Tiger usually had a virtual mem size of about 20-30GB. Leopard's bordering on 60GB.

00:04 *** Celelibi has quit IRC

00:06 <MTughan> Keeps the real mem usage under fairly good control though... Only using 1.2GB of 2GB.

00:06 *** Celelaptop has quit IRC

01:18 <FreeLarry_> well soul not mplayer but installed vlc

01:18 <FreeLarry_> now can see the sessions from burp

01:19 <MTughan> I really missed a lot... Last message I saw was TM saying "ib".

01:19 <FreeLarry_> not much just dererk quit/rejoin and you with nick collision

01:20 <MTughan> Oh.

01:20 <FreeLarry_> mine refering to much earlier when Soul_keeper was testing on my machine

01:20 <dererk> lol

01:20 <dererk> In fact I did wrong tab'ing  and missed query for quit :-/

01:20 <FreeLarry_> doing more package installations currently

01:21 <Soul_keeper> :)

01:21 <FreeLarry_> now to see what i installed

01:21 <Tank_Master> :)

01:21 <Tank_Master> id like to just be able to get my new game installed

01:23 *** Celelaptop__ has joined #boinc

01:24 <FreeLarry_> my gparted takes long to scan

01:25 <FreeLarry_> etherape needs removal

01:25 <MTughan> Hey, Apple finally built partition resizing into Disk Utility...

01:28 <dererk> heh

01:33 <Tank_Master> bout time ;)

01:33 <Tank_Master> in 10.5?

01:33 <Tank_Master> Its probably because its linux? I dunno though

01:34 <Tank_Master> can you shrink a partition as well as expand?

01:34 <dererk> It's certainly not linux I guess

01:34 <Tank_Master> MAC OS 10.5 is linux, not BSD anymore

01:35 <MTughan> So I heard, haven't confirmed it.

01:35 <Tank_Master> yeah, they arent so straight forward with it

01:35 <dererk> WTF

01:35 <Tank_Master> I cant say I blame them (if its true)

01:36 <Tank_Master> who would want to spend that much for a linux distro?

01:38 <dererk>

01:38 <Romulus> Title: Mac OS X v10.5 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at

01:38 <dererk> Doesn't mention nothing about that

01:39 <Soul_keeper> it can't be linux unless it's free, otherwise it'd violate gpl

01:39 <Tank_Master> not all linux flavors are free

01:39 <Soul_keeper> should still be darwin based ...  but likely runs programs written for linux

01:39 <Tank_Master> (even if they *shoulg* be

01:39 <Soul_keeper> they are if they use the linux kernel

01:40 <Soul_keeper> you can't ship gpl with non-gpl

01:40 * dererk nods

01:40 <Soul_keeper> some charge for distros, but they offer them free as well "legally have to"

01:41 <dererk> They may contain gnu/gpled software, that would be much possible

01:41 <Soul_keeper> so basically you are paying for them to burn the cd/dvd for you or some kinda service

01:41 <dererk> PovAddict, still there neighbour?

01:42 <Tank_Master> and for the additiona apps, probably

01:45 <dererk> I really envy how Apple took everything opensourced and made a great desktop

01:46 <Soul_keeper> well it's basically a unix kernel

01:46 <Soul_keeper> losely compatible with bsd/linux in most ways

01:47 <dererk> Yeap, and the webbrowser is based on Konqueror

01:47 <Soul_keeper> not sure if lgpl is compat with their licensing

01:47 <dererk> well, so long It's about 4am

11:13 <FreeLarry_> both directions

11:14 *** zombie__67 has quit IRC

11:16 <FreeLarry_> oh side note to PovAddict - installed virtualization modes on this machine if you want to try

11:17 <atoponce> so, to get a host working via the cmd line, i just run boinc_cmd --project_attach $BOINC_URL $BOINC_KEY?

11:17 <atoponce> i don't think that my host is doing any work

11:18 <PovAddict> atoponce: boinc_cmd --get_project_status

11:18 <PovAddict> if it outputs nothing, it's not attached to any project :)

11:19 <atoponce> it's attached, but 'top' doesn't show any heavy cpu load

11:19 <atoponce> although it did update on my hosts page on the project site

11:20 <PovAddict> what project(s)?

11:21 <PovAddict> hmm

11:22 <atoponce> yeah. my other 3 hosts are burning through the work

11:22 <atoponce> of course, they're using the gui

11:22 <PovAddict> kinda hard to help you... boinc_cmd is hard to use...

11:23 <PovAddict> hmm

11:23 <atoponce> hmm. are there better commands than boinc_cmd?

11:23 <atoponce> i have 2 headless servers that need work. :)

11:23 <PovAddict> boinc_cmd is somewhat a 1:1 interface to the internal commands

11:23 <PovAddict> which suck

11:25 <PovAddict> so I look at them directly :]

11:32 <yoyo[RKN]> yoyo supports sparc

11:32 <PovAddict> wait, sparc linux? I'd say not a single project supports it... there isn't even an official platform name for it

11:39 <Tank_Master> now snow yet here

11:39 <PriitM> could anyone please suggest me some irc chatroom or big forums about about hard drives? :)

11:39 <PriitM> I belive my 400gb external died :/

11:39 <FreeLarry_> give it a couple hours Tank_Master

11:40 <Tank_Master> what happened to the drive?

11:40 <PriitM> well it was unused for like a week or two and now it spins up, blinks activity led 4x and then powers down

11:41 <Tank_Master> what brand?

11:41 <PriitM> WD

11:41 <Tank_Master> was it pluged in the entier time?

11:41 <PriitM> nope, unplugged

11:41 <Tank_Master> huh

11:42 <PriitM> rather new driver too - probably less than 600gb of data written on it

11:42 <Tank_Master> I blame global dimming for your problem ;)

11:42 <PriitM> drive*

11:42 <PriitM> global warming my butt :P it's quite cold in here

11:42 <Tank_Master> nono, dimming

11:42 <Tank_Master> not warming

11:43 <Tank_Master> I dont blame you

11:43 <Tank_Master> is it still under warenty?

11:43 <PriitM> yeah, but I got some of my pr0n collection there :<

11:44 <PriitM> thanks :>

11:44 <PovAddict> PriitM: is your data worth 89 dollars?

11:45 <PriitM> i belive not - i got backups on my PC of most stuff

11:45 <FreeLarry_> more likely he got hit by one of those anti-porn activist

11:45 <Tank_Master> no, poultion they say we put into the air is preventing as much sunlight from reaching the ground as it would be "with out humans", so they call it "global dimming"

11:45 <PovAddict> &math calc 185 * .206

11:45 <Romulus> PovAddict: 38.11

11:45 <Tank_Master> funny hting is that its slowing global warming ;)

11:46 <Tank_Master> anywho, ill bbl

11:46 <PovAddict> yeah

11:46 <PovAddict> they stop pollution and suddenly it gets hotter

11:46 <PovAddict>!

11:46 <atoponce> i thought that the client did the work processing just raw data. so why isn't sparc supported?

11:46 <atoponce> i guess i'm not exactly up to par with how the process works

11:47 <atoponce> shouldn't the data be platform-neutral?

11:47 <PovAddict> atoponce: the client downloads files, starts the project application, decides when to get work and what projects to run next, etc

11:47 <PovAddict> and that's it

11:47 <PovAddict> the client has no idea how to break sha1 hashes :)

11:47 <atoponce> right. i understand that

11:48 <PovAddict> if the sha1 project gives you the sourcecode of their app, you could compile it for sparc-linux

11:48 <atoponce> but if the client is compiled for the platform, then it just gets the files, and processes what's instructed

11:48 <PovAddict> "the files" includes an executable binary

11:48 <atoponce> ahh

11:48 <atoponce> that would explain it then

11:49 <atoponce> so, what projects supported sparc linux?

11:49 <atoponce> :)

11:49 <PovAddict> I think none, but on opensource projects you could just compile it yourself

11:49 <atoponce> true

11:50 <atoponce> not sure if i have the time to maintain a platform binary however

11:50 <atoponce> so, i need something for this sparc box to do then. :)

11:51 <PovAddict> if it is open source *and* isn't changing its app all the time... :)

11:58 <CoderForANewYear> back from getting a haircut

11:59 <CoderForANewYear> ok, I confess - I splurged and got *both* of them cut

12:00 <PovAddict> both hairs?

12:06 <CoderForANewYear> yup

12:07 <CoderForANewYear> not just a hair cut

12:07 <PovAddict> two hairs cut :)

12:07 <PovAddict> i thought you had more

12:07 <PovAddict> but maybe it was an old pic

12:07 <CoderForANewYear> correct - both of them

12:07 <CoderForANewYear> lol - true - the pic you saw was 10 years old

12:08 <PovAddict> a lot of hair disappears in 10 years

12:08 <CoderForANewYear> and the rest turns gray

13:29 <E-30> ciool

13:32 *** TeraBoy has quit IRC

13:35 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

13:47 <efc> moo

13:56 <E-30> moo back

13:58 <MTughan> moo thrice

13:59 <E-30> lol

13:59 <E-30> so how is everyone doing

13:59 <MTughan> I stayed up till 5AM last night... >_>

13:59 <E-30> same here

14:00 <E-30> its 1 pm now

14:00 <efc> I'm trying to kick that habit

14:00 <E-30> jest got up about a hour ago

14:00 <MTughan> And my wireless was acting up again... At least two more disconnects last night.

14:00 <E-30> wow not cool

14:01 <E-30> well time to go start playing games again\

14:01 <MTughan> And I can't find an Ethernet cable long enough, so it sucks. Wireless repeater didn't really help either.

14:03 <Tank_Master> I got UT3 for xmas

14:03 <Tank_Master> so I had to play that a bit last night ;)

14:04 <MTughan> Actually, come to think of it, when it was in place I didn't disconnect, just "stopped" for half a minute or so.

14:04 <MTughan> lol, see ya.

14:10 <efc> What are you trying to connect?

14:10 <PovAddict> the internet and his computer

14:11 <PovAddict> I need a faster computer...

14:11 <PovAddict> like

14:11 <PovAddict> 100ghz will do

14:11 <PovAddict> and/or, povray devs should hurry on that multithreaded version...

14:11 <Tank_Master> octi-core, right?

14:11 <PovAddict> I can't even use multiple cores without splitting the image in tiles manually

14:12 <PovAddict> and starting up multiple instances

14:12 <PovAddict> (each eating 200MB of RAM :-\)

14:12 <efc> To do POV-ray stuff?

14:12 <PovAddict> yeah

14:12 <efc> Does it use the SMP instructions much?

14:13 <efc> err SMD i think

14:13 <PovAddict> it's C++, no hand-optimized assembler inside

14:13 <PovAddict> so it depends on what the compiler can do

14:13 <efc> Most can't do that. The Intel compiler can.

14:13 <PovAddict> the 3.7 betas have multithreading

14:13 <efc> But then depends on the application. I would think raytracing would be a good candidate.

14:13 <PovAddict> split image in tiles and assign them to threads

14:14 <PovAddict> but as opposed to the manual way, the scene data is only once in memory

14:14 <PovAddict> they're taking long because a lot of code was non-thread-safe...

14:14 <MTughan> Wow, last beta expired almost a month ago...

14:14 <MTughan> And only for Windows and Linux.

14:14 <PovAddict> there was some performance drop too

14:14 <efc> SMD would still help, if its the kind of code that can be helped

14:15 <MTughan> And efc: "The Linux binary package contains two executables, povray and povray-gcc, built with the Intel compiler and gcc respectively."

14:15 <PovAddict> due to caches that can't be global anymore

14:15 <efc> ah cool

14:15 <MTughan>

14:15 <Romulus> Title: POV-Ray: Beta (at

14:15 <PovAddict> yeah they use the intel compiler for the binary builds

14:15 <efc> the whole way that CMD code has developed has been dissapointing

14:15 <efc> SMD I mean

14:15 <PovAddict> but they can't add too much optimization, gotta keep it somewhat compatible with older processors

14:16 <PovAddict> the fastest way is compiling it yourself with optimizations targeted at your CPU

14:16 <MTughan> But that's without multicore then.

14:16 <PovAddict> yeah, till they finish 3.7...

14:17 <MTughan> Can you get the sourcecode for 3.7 beta?

14:17 <MTughan> Through a versioning system or something?

14:17 <PovAddict> no

14:17 <PovAddict> code is only available when the release is done, that's how it has always been

14:18 <MTughan> Nuts...

14:18 <PovAddict> also, the versioning system they use is Perforce

14:18 <MTughan> I though it was open-source?

14:18 <MTughan> thought*

14:18 <PovAddict> so even if they allowed outside access to their versioning system, you'd need to buy perforce to connect...

14:18 <MTughan> Ah.

14:19 <PovAddict> also, source is available, but it's not open source in the way FSF would agree...

14:19 <MTughan> So it's not GPL'd then.

14:19 <PovAddict> GPL didn't exist when povray started :)

14:19 <MTughan> Ah.

14:23 <MTughan> Hehe... I think the icon for Windows shares is a CRT monitor showing a BSOD... :)

15:36 <MTughan> Oh, and I'm not quite sure if it's something in the software, or a hardware issue causing the panics...

15:40 <MTughan> Is anyone here?

15:45 <Tank_Master> no

16:17 <E-30> wow

16:17 <MTughan> So the new icon format almost backfired on them, that I can get that kind of resolution...

16:17 <MTughan> New format is 512x512.

16:18 <E-30> what the f

16:18 <E-30> thats huge

16:18 <MTughan> Makes for nice icons though... It's for the new CoverFlow interface in Finder.

16:18 <E-30> ok

16:21 <MTughan> New shadows? I didn't see any diff from the Tiger ones... Guess that means yes.

16:27 <Tank_Master> if I remember correctly, only plce Ive seen it is in the BOINC dev e-mails

16:27 <MTughan> Hardly conclusive...

16:28 <E-30> lol

16:28 <Tank_Master> well, they ARE writing code for it, so if theres a change in OS, they would probably know about it

16:30 <Tank_Master> gaa..

16:31 <E-30> cool

16:38 <MTughan> WTF? Apparently TextEdit in Leopard can read Office '07 XML files...

16:38 <MTughan> And ODT files? Wow...

16:38 <Tank_Master> sweet

16:38 <MTughan> Notice that they're not really touting those features though...

16:39 <MTughan> They still want people to use iWork, not TextEdit, Office, or OOo.

16:42 <Tank_Master> you do know who the largest software maker for the MAC other than apple is, right?

16:43 <MTughan> Samsung?

16:43 <MTughan> Or Intel?

16:43 <Tank_Master> MS

16:43 <MTughan> Oh, software maker... I was thinking hardware there.

16:43 <Tank_Master> lol

16:43 <Tank_Master> thought so

16:44 <MTughan> Because I know Samsung manufactures a lot of the RAM for Macs and flash chips for iPods.
