IRC logs of #boinc for Sunday, 2008-02-10

00:00 * KathrynM is back (gone 13:10:39)

00:00 <zombie67> what are they up to now?

00:03 *** KathrynM has quit IRC

00:03 <efc> Cyrix 6x86 still burning away..

00:08 <zombie67> this both sucks and blows

00:15 <zombie67> MTughan:  You still there?

00:16 <MTughan> Yeah.

00:16 <zombie67> For TSP, how do I tell if I got the (BF) "Mac OS 10.4 or later running on Intel" or "Mac OS 10.5+ running on Intel 64-bit"

00:16 <zombie67> ?

00:17 <MTughan> Look in the project directory...

00:17 <zombie67> application name is "tsp_2.15_i686-apple-darwin"

00:17 <PovAddict> 32-bit app then

00:17 <MTughan> Mac OS 10.4 or later running on Intel.

00:18 <zombie67> so how do I get the other?

00:18 <MTughan> The Manager has to request it, which is apparently doesn't...

00:18 <zombie67> so.....?

00:18 <Romulus> [He !@#&s his gun.]

00:19 <MTughan> You could use an app_info.xml.

00:19 <zombie67> okay....need some help then

00:19 <MTughan> I can make one.

00:19 <zombie67> thanks!

00:19 <zombie67> zombie67 at mac dot com

00:19 <MTughan> I'll zip it up with the app for you.

00:20 <zombie67> sweet!

00:20 <zombie67> thanks!

00:20 <zombie67> But, then what is the point of having the app on the server

00:20 <zombie67> ?

00:20 <zombie67> shouldn't it just work?

00:20 <MTughan> When 6.x is released, I imagine it'll include full support for x86_64.

00:21 <MTughan> Do you want BF or GA?

00:21 <MTughan> Or both?

00:21 <zombie67> both please.

00:21 <zombie67> there may be a few stragglers for GA

00:22 <MTughan> Okay.

00:22 <PovAddict> 5.x already should support it

00:22 <PovAddict> TSP must have some server issue about it

00:22 <zombie67> and of course a app_info.xml that works for both

00:22 <zombie67> mweltin is not in da house

00:23 <zombie67> I *really* like having the My Account link at the bottom of pages now

00:24 <zombie67>

00:24 <Romulus> <> (at

00:25 <MTughan> PovAddict: The BOINC Manager doesn't have an x86_64 build.

00:25 *** KathrynM has joined #boinc

00:27 <zombie67> Thanks!

00:27 <zombie67> how in the world do people live without quicksilver?

00:27 <MTughan> I don't.

00:27 <PovAddict> MTughan: BOINC for Mac is a universal binary

00:27 <MTughan> PovAddict: Still only i386 and PPC builds.

00:27 <zombie67> you don't live without it?  or you you don't use it?

00:27 <PovAddict> oh RIGHT

00:27 <MTughan> I don't use it.

00:27 <zombie67> wow.

00:27 <MTughan> $ file BOINCManager

00:27 <MTughan> BOINCManager: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures

00:27 <MTughan> BOINCManager (for architecture i386):Mach-O executable i386

00:27 <MTughan> BOINCManager (for architecture ppc):Mach-O executable ppc

00:28 <zombie67> once you "get it", nothing is faster

00:28 <MTughan> To do what?

00:28 <zombie67> Sat Feb  9 21:27:54 2008|traveling salesman problem|[error] No app version for result: i686-apple-darwin -1

00:28 <MTughan> Restart BOINC.

00:28 <PovAddict> zombie67: reset project

00:29 <MTughan> PovAddict: If he resets, won't he delete the app_info.xml?

00:29 <zombie67> it didn't

00:29 <MTughan> Oh...

00:29 <Romulus> up, mweltin is that a large cap lock

00:29 <PovAddict> MTughan: Quicksilver is some sort of Spotlight

00:29 <zombie67> but still getting the error message

00:29 <MTughan> Restart BOINC.

00:30 <zombie67> QS is WAY more than spotlight.  better at what spotlight does too

00:30 <zombie67> Sat Feb  9 21:26:48 2008|traveling salesman problem|[error] No app version for result: i686-apple-darwin -1

00:30 <MTughan> I don't use Spotlight.

00:30 <PovAddict> o_O

00:30 <zombie67> me neither

00:30 <MTughan> zombie67: You restarted BOINC?

00:30 <zombie67> yeah

00:30 <PovAddict> zombie67: you don't use Spotlight, you use Quicksilver... MTughan doesn't use Spotlight, and doesn't use any "replacement" either

00:30 <zombie67> quit boinc, copied files, fixed ownership, restarted boinc

00:30 <zombie67> I understand

00:31 <MTughan> If any replacement, it's the Unix find command.

00:31 <MTughan> Gets into the hidden parts.

00:31 <PovAddict> find functions inside code :)

00:31 <MTughan> grep.

00:31 <MTughan> zombie67: Where did you extract them too?

00:32 <PovAddict> an indexed search is way faster than find -name *.h | xargs grep functionname

00:32 <MTughan> Oh... In the messages page, near the top, does it say it found the app_info.xml?

00:32 <zombie67> you misunderstand what QS is about.  it is not a Find program, it is a launcher

00:32 <MTughan> Stacks are helpful.

00:32 <zombie67> Sat Feb  9 21:26:43 2008|traveling salesman problem|Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform

00:32 <MTughan> So that is working...

00:33 <MTughan> The only thing I can think of is that the platforms are colliding...

00:33 <MTughan> PovAddict: Would I identify the app as a 32-bit or a 64-bit?

00:33 <zombie67> there is a space in the file

00:33 <PovAddict> "No app version for result" is weird

00:33 <zombie67> under file info

00:33 <PovAddict> if you reset project, you shouldn't have results

00:33 <zombie67> I have no results

00:34 <PovAddict> try faking it...

00:34 <zombie67> <api_version>6.1.0</api_version>

00:34 <zombie67> ??

00:34 <PovAddict> make app_info.xml say it's  i686-apple-darwin

00:34 <zombie67> 5.10.41 is what I am using

00:34 <MTughan> PovAddict: Should I identify the app as 32-bit or 64-bit? I'm identifying as 640bit...

00:35 <MTughan> Yeah, change <platform>x86_64-apple-darwin</platform> to <platform>i686-apple-darwin</platform> both times.

00:35 <zombie67> Is this okay?:  [21:34]  <zombie67>   <api_version>6.1.0</api_version>

00:36 <MTughan> Yes.

00:36 <zombie67> okay, made the change, restarting.

00:36 <MTughan> It may actually be a bit later, but that won't affect it.

00:36 <zombie67> Sat Feb  9 21:36:20 2008|traveling salesman problem|Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform

00:36 <zombie67> w00t!

00:36 <MTughan> Lots of BF.

00:37 <MTughan> Hmm... PovAddict: Bug?

00:37 <MTughan> It won't accept anonymous platform for what it's not on.

00:38 <PovAddict> hmm idea

00:39 <PovAddict> zombie67: version?

00:39 <PovAddict> of boinc

00:39 <MTughan> He said 5.10.41 already.

00:39 <MTughan> <zombie67> 5.10.41 is what I am using

00:39 <PovAddict> if you have >5.10.26, you can use a different "method"...

00:40 <MTughan> Now I'm interested...

00:40 <zombie67> yeah, 5.10.41

00:40 <PovAddict> detach project, and delete all the app_info stuff, then create cc_config.xml with

00:40 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Anonymous - post number 898286 (at

00:40 <zombie67> who?

00:40 <PovAddict> (or add alt_platform to your existing stuff, if file already exists)

00:41 <MTughan> Oh, nice...

00:41 <PovAddict> erm, not detach project... *reset* project :)

00:41 <PovAddict> although detaching would delete everything, app_info included :)

00:41 <zombie67> talking to me?

00:41 <MTughan> Yeah.

00:42 <zombie67> start over, what do you want me to do?

00:42 <PovAddict> hmm

00:42 <MTughan> Alternative to app_info.xml, makes BOINC download x86_64 apps.

00:42 <PovAddict> actually I think that *might* not work...

00:42 <MTughan> Do you have a cc_config.xml in /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data?

00:42 <PovAddict> maybe that will make it say "give me 32-bit if you have it, or alternatively 64-bit", which is the opposite of what you really need

00:42 <zombie67> I have a cc_config file

00:42 <Romulus> zombie67: send me your use of svn

00:42 <PovAddict> stfu bot

00:42 <MTughan> &stfu

00:42 * Romulus shuts up (fingers crossed)

00:43 * zombie67 is waiting for instructions

00:43 <PovAddict> zombie67: see my last msg... maybe this isn't actually a good idea

00:43 <MTughan> He's saying put this in:

00:43 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Anonymous - post number 898286 (at

00:43 <zombie67> remember, I have already blown 40+ results

00:44 <zombie67> give it to me in steps please

00:44 <PovAddict> nvm, I'll first have to ask a dev if this would actually work

00:44 <zombie67> i assume this includes doing thing with app_info, resetting, etc

00:45 <zombie67> I can only blow so many before I am locked out for another day

00:46 <zombie67> wow, the new versions go into "high priority" many days before deadline

00:47 *** Wabbit98 has joined #boinc

00:47 <zombie67> i wabbit

00:47 <zombie67> h

00:47 <Wabbit98> zombie

00:48 <KathrynM> what's the boinc_cmd to dettach from a project?

00:48 <zombie67> MTughan:  Is the 64 bit leopard app supposed to be faster at BF?

00:48 <MTughan> No idea.

00:48 <PovAddict> boinc_cmd --project detach http://project.url/

00:48 <zombie67> GTFO

00:48 <zombie67> ;)

00:48 <KathrynM> txh

00:49 <zombie67> looks like it will take my 3ghz XEON about 40 min.

00:49 <PovAddict> MTughan: you have a curious questioner @ boincdev:)

00:50 <zombie67> my 2.4ghz C2D with XP64 does it in 26 min.

00:51 <zombie67> heh.  8)

00:52 * KathrynM feel like punching boinc

00:52 * zombie67 too

00:52 <zombie67> at least you get to use all of your CPU

00:52 <KathrynM> i'm not so sure on that right now

00:53 <zombie67>

00:53 <Romulus> <> (at

00:53 <KathrynM> ouch

00:56 <zombie67> duh, I meant 5.10, not 10.5....

00:56 <zombie67> too much tiger on the mind

00:56 <zombie67> vs. leopard

00:56 <PovAddict> lol

00:56 <PovAddict> can you edit?

00:56 <zombie67> way past the hour limit

00:56 <KathrynM> repost it and I can delete the original

00:57 <zombie67> cool!  I'll do it right now

00:57 <KathrynM> let me know when

00:57 <PovAddict> mods should have editing allowed...

00:58 <PovAddict> to remove email addresses from idiots who post it publicly for example

00:58 <KathrynM> yeah well

00:58 <zombie67> I thought edits messed up your grand plan for nntp

00:58 <PovAddict> they sure do...

00:58 <PovAddict> good point

00:58 <PovAddict> it's 4 am

00:58 <KathrynM> you should go to bed

00:58 <zombie67> I am old school post it, it's there for EVER

00:59 <zombie67> posted

01:00 <KathrynM> done

01:01 <PovAddict> KathrynM: I can't test PG graphics correctly :(

01:01 <KathrynM> why?

01:02 <MTughan> Okay, I added my own response to Charlie. Including screenshots.

01:02 <PovAddict> only newer versions of the API can start up the v6 graphics when a v5 client asks for it... so I need either an updated PG app (compiled with latest API), or test using client v6

01:03 <PovAddict> MTughan: WTF happened with that titlebar!?

01:03 <Romulus> <> (at

01:03 <PovAddict> and the statusbar text

01:03 <MTughan> Hmm?

01:03 <MTughan> White?

01:04 <PovAddict> that's unreadable :)

01:04 <MTughan> One sec...

01:04 <zombie67> MT:  did pov tell you my other idea?

01:04 <zombie67> for the messages tab

01:04 <PovAddict> oh I think I didnt

01:05 <zombie67> I want to be able to filter on a particular project

01:05 <PovAddict> (17:30:16) zombie67: when on the messages tab, I would like to be able to display specific to a particular project.

01:05 <PovAddict> (17:30:35) zombie67: IOW, "show me only LHC messages"

01:05 <PovAddict> (17:32:23) zombie67: I picture a column of buttons on the left, one for each project attached

01:05 <zombie67> thanks!

01:05 <MTughan> I didn't see that one...

01:05 <PovAddict> you weren't online, afaik

01:05 <MTughan> PovAddict: Try the screenshot again.

01:05 <PovAddict> ohh you *had* to use glass huh? :)

01:06 <MTughan> :D

01:06 *** Wabbit67 has joined #boinc

01:06 <zombie67> wow!  you run QCN ???

01:07 <MTughan> Yeah.

01:07 <zombie67> how?

01:07 <Romulus> I guess how is breakfast, zombie67

01:07 <MTughan> Although I've had 6 tasks crash.

01:07 <MTughan> zombie67: What do you mean, how?

01:07 <PovAddict> &forget how

01:07 <Romulus> PovAddict: Error: There is no such factoid.

01:07 <zombie67> It keeps resetting me back to 1 task

01:07 <PovAddict> &moobotfactoids forget how

01:07 <Romulus> Wish I knew, PovAddict.

01:08 <zombie67> no matter how many times I change gen prefs back to 16, it keeps going back

01:08 <MTughan> It only needs to run one task at a time.

01:08 <zombie67> also, the admin says that he changed it to non-cpu, but it does not behave that way

01:08 <zombie67> ????

01:09 <MTughan> It monitors the motion sensor, using it like a crude seismometer.

01:09 <zombie67> gen prefs apply to ALL projects

01:09 <MTughan> There's only one sensor per computer, so you don't need more than one task running.

01:09 <zombie67> gen prefs apply to ALL projects

01:09 <MTughan> Still doesn't mean it'll get multiple tasks.

01:09 <PovAddict> &infobot tell PovAddict about how

01:10 <zombie67> gen prefs apply to ALL projects

01:10 <PovAddict> general?

01:10 <zombie67> yes

01:10 <PovAddict> what exact setting are you changing?


01:10 <PovAddict> CPUs?

01:10 <PovAddict> MTughan: QCN screws up settings for every single project

01:10 <Romulus> also am I supposed to change a tab completion

01:10 <zombie67> what we have here is a failure to communicate

01:10 <PovAddict> so that all projects get one task at a time...

01:11 <PovAddict> zombie67: is it CPUs you're changing?

01:11 <zombie67> so only one task runs at any given time.

01:11 <MTughan> Oh, the general prefs SNAFU?

01:11 <zombie67> YES

01:11 <PovAddict> yes, it's still going on

01:11 <PovAddict> sort of

01:11 <MTughan> I thought it had been fixed, but maybe not...

01:11 <MTughan> I don't know, I'm still crunching along.

01:11 <MTughan> Could also be that I've set the number of CPUs to use many times.

01:12 <zombie67> here is the problem:

01:12 <zombie67> if it is truly non-cpu, then they should not have to try to force 1 CPU

01:13 <MTughan> I think it is marked as non-CPU intensive, but that's not preventing it.

01:13 <zombie67> but they are doing both, forcing 1 CPU which should not be necessary for non-cpu

01:13 <MTughan> No, because I think the BOINC core is broken somehow.

01:14 <zombie67> and I think they really have not turned it to non-CPU like they think

01:14 <MTughan> So even with non-CPU, BOINC's still going for more than one task.

01:14 <MTughan> Yeah, maybe not properly.

01:14 <zombie67> no, depspid had to customize to get more than one

01:14 <MTughan> That's always a possibility. I didn't think of that.

01:15 <PovAddict> BOINC doesn't ask for work on non-cpu-intensive projects if it has any work from that project

01:15 <PovAddict> if the project sends more than one, BOINC won't ask more until they are *all* done

01:15 <zombie67> look at it like this:  say it d/l two non-CPU tasks.  Do you really have 4 running on your dual core?

01:16 <zombie67> in any case

01:16 <zombie67> if they really *do* have it set as non-CPU, then there is no need to force 1 CPU general prefs!

01:17 <zombie67> but they keep resetting my gen prefs

01:17 <zombie67> superlink did something similar at first

01:18 <zombie67> it never occured to them that people run other projects, and that gen prefs were shared with other projects

01:19 <MTughan> Oh, you were telling us about Quicksilver earlier. Just what can it do?

01:19 <Tank_Master> They marked it as non cpu intensive after foring the general prefs

01:19 <Tank_Master> they didnt know about the setting at first

01:20 <zombie67> I know, but they never went back and fixed their gen prefs hack

01:20 <Tank_Master> still?

01:20 <PovAddict> &tell MTughan [google quicksilver mac]

01:20 <zombie67> QS is a keyboard based launcher

01:20 <zombie67> still

01:20 <MTughan> Fine... I'm on their page anyway.

01:20 <Tank_Master> numnutz

01:21 <MTughan> I did try it once, couldn't figure it out.

01:21 <zombie67> MT, I will send you the link to a laporte video podcast that makes it amazingly clear

01:21 <MTughan> All right...

01:26 <MTughan> Thanks.

01:28 <zombie67> it is a launcher

01:28 <zombie67> but that is just the surface

01:28 <zombie67> you can take one action and throw into another

01:29 <zombie67> verbs

01:31 <zombie67> and it learns VERY fast

01:32 <zombie67> about 50% in to it, it gets really interesting

01:32 <MTughan> The video?

01:32 <zombie67> yeah

01:32 <MTughan> I'm not watching it at the moment.

01:33 <MTughan> Waiting for QS to install plugins.

01:33 <zombie67> just letting you know, don't get bored.  stick with it to until the 50% mark

01:33 <MTughan> I can do that.

01:33 <MTughan> If I ever get through the install... :P

01:34 <MTughan> iTunes plugin went fast, but the next one is slow... Been sitting here for about 6 minutes now.

01:34 <zombie67> cancel out of that

01:34 <MTughan> All right...

01:34 <zombie67> i noticed that today too

01:35 <zombie67> continue throuh

01:35 <zombie67> then go back to the prefs, and add the plugins there

01:35 <zombie67> snap snap snap

01:37 <zombie67> i think the install stalls on that #6 on leopard for some reason.

01:37 <zombie67> seriously though, stick with QS for a week, and you will never look back

01:40 *** Wabbit67 has quit IRC

01:40 <zombie67> oh!  BOINC admin!  Hire yourself out.  Manage multiple projects.

01:40 <PovAddict> huh

01:41 <zombie67> POV, you could manage 20 projects, each for a fraction of what it would cost a project to hire a full time admin

01:41 <zombie67> let the project concentrate on app development

01:42 <Wabbit> I will hire myself out as alpha tester

02:50 <zombie67> I need a (free) app that will use all 8 processors on my leopard mac at 100%.

02:52 <Tank_Master> BOINC?

02:52 <Romulus> I guess BOINC is all perfect and stuff, Tank_Master

02:52 *** Wabbit98 has quit IRC

02:53 <zombie67> BOINC ain't getting the job done.  Need another app to prove it that it is not the machine or the OS

02:53 <Tank_Master> windows?

02:54 <Tank_Master> would tell you if its the compor not

02:54 <zombie67> but then I would need to install Windows, then, BOINC, then...

02:54 <zombie67> guh

02:54 <Tank_Master> wus

02:54 <zombie67> and windows is not free

02:55 *** desti_T2 has joined #boinc

02:55 <Tank_Master> you can install it as a trial for free

02:56 <zombie67> and other ways....

02:56 <zombie67> wonder if XP64 ....

02:56 <Tank_Master> should

02:57 <zombie67> still, if i installed it under boot camp, that does not rule out leopard

02:57 <zombie67> or the mac osx client

02:57 <Tank_Master> y?

02:57 <zombie67> boinc client

02:57 <Tank_Master> the mac OS isnt running when windows is, is it?

02:57 <zombie67> with boot camp, the machine actually boots windows

02:58 <Tank_Master> thought so

02:58 <zombie67> and even with VMware , it is still BOINC inside windows

02:59 <zombie67> so I want to see a mac application using 100% of all 8 cores

02:59 <Tank_Master> so would I

02:59 <Romulus> still trying to get

02:59 <Tank_Master> it doent matter what the projects are?

03:00 <zombie67> nope.  I have run only one of each

03:00 <zombie67> and anyway, the same projects under tiger

03:00 *** Celelaptop has quit IRC

03:01 <zombie67> so it is either BOINC, or leopard, or both

03:01 <Tank_Master> y not *try* running 3 different projects at once?

03:01 <zombie67> I did that

03:01 <Tank_Master> no differnce?

03:02 <zombie67> first I tried suspending only one project.  each project one at a time

03:02 <zombie67> then I tried running only one project, one at a time

03:06 <zombie67> he did that before they went down

03:06 <zombie67> that means he did that on P3 and P4s

11:45 <Rookie_69> Hi, Jay.

11:45 <wdsmia> *lo Glenn

11:46 <xcamel> get ready for the winds out there on the island...

11:46 <Rookie_69> *lo, Doug.

11:46 <Rookie_69> Not "quite"an island here...

11:48 <xcamel> close enough for government work..

11:48 <Rookie_69> Tell that to the marsh that joins us to New Brunswick.

11:48 <Rookie_69> Lol.

11:48 <Romulus> but it does but that would kill me for pasting, but follow my logic on this...

11:49 <Rookie_69> (Tantramar Marsh)

11:51 <Rookie_69> It's damp out... I can hear the ~30,000 volts dancing on the pole out front.

11:52 <xcamel> gale force winds on the way was the point...

11:54 <Rookie_69> Not here yet. I wonder if it will come with snow?

11:55 <xcamel> lol - "dancing voltage" is never good...

11:56 *** Snake has joined #boinc

11:56 <Snake> Morning

11:57 <xcamel> 'lo Snake

11:58 <Snake> Has anyone run accross remote client connect problems with BOINC and Fedora 7. I had no problems with Ubuntu.

11:59 <xcamel> running on fc7, but never tried the 'remote client' option..

11:59 <KathrynM> what versions of BOINC?

11:59 <Snake> umm

11:59 <Snake> 5.10.28

11:59 <KathrynM> I just did this battle :)

11:59 <Snake> Really

11:59 <Snake> ?

11:59 <KathrynM> both boxes running that version?

12:00 <Snake> 3 boxes wINDOWS AND ONE lINUX

12:00 <Snake> oops

12:00 <Rookie_69> Lol.

12:00 <PovAddict> &bw GuiRpcAuth

12:00 <Romulus>

12:00 <PovAddict> err

12:00 <PovAddict> &bw RpcAuth

12:00 <Romulus>

12:00 <PovAddict> that's the one

12:01 <KathrynM> all boxes on the same version?

12:01 * KathrynM is back (gone 02:58:52)

12:01 <Snake> All the latest. I have both the GuiAuth and remote_hosts configed right

12:01 <KathrynM> latest = ?

12:02 <Snake> 5.10.30 on the windows boxes

12:02 <xcamel> remote_gui_rpc_auth ??

12:02 <MTughan> Oh... xcamel: I have another one for you...

12:02 <MTughan>

12:02 <Romulus> <> (at

12:02 <KathrynM> Nuts.  Well, that should work.

12:02 <xcamel> looking...

12:02 <PovAddict> Snake: what exactly doesn't work? does it say password is wrong or what?

12:02 <MTughan> Sized down to 512x512 and 30% alpha.

12:03 <KathrynM> I had problems when they changed the curl version in 5.10.40

12:03 <Snake> It says there is no client to connect to

12:03 <PovAddict> firewall?

12:03 <Snake> Seems like a remote_hosts.cfg problem

12:03 <MTughan> SELinux and firewall, yeah.

12:03 <Snake> Firewall is turned off

12:03 <KathrynM> And as it's 2am...  I'll leave you in PovAddict capable hands

12:03 <MTughan> I had the same problem connecting to my Fedora 7 system.

12:03 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

12:03 <Romulus> but they run 'sports' workunits, it can but its easy enough to run.

12:03 <Snake> When I do a port scan I don't see an open port for it

12:04 <PovAddict> should be 31416

12:04 <Snake> Right

12:04 <MTughan> There are two files you have to set: gui_rpc_auth.cfg and remost_hosts.cfg, then the core client has to be restarted.

12:04 <xcamel> I guess I need to change the link text color..

12:04 <xcamel> but it looks good..

12:04 <Snake> MTughan, both files are there

12:04 <Snake> And configed correctly

12:05 <MTughan> Did you restart the core client?

12:05 <Snake> Yes, even rebooed the machine

12:05 <Snake> rebooted

12:05 <MTughan> Is SELinux on?

12:05 <Snake> No, SELinux is disabled

12:05 <PovAddict> hmm let's go thru this again

12:05 <MTughan> Try opening up the port in the firewall, even if it says it's disabled.

12:06 <PovAddict> you're trying to connect a manager on Linux to a client also on Linux?

12:06 <MTughan> Yay, Growl's up...

12:06 <Snake> I'm trying to connect a manager as well as boincview on a windows box to a clinet on a linux box

12:07 <PovAddict> xcamel: try this:

12:07 <PovAddict> background: url(boinc-bg.png) no-repeat fixed center;

12:07 <Snake> I can't open a port when the firewall is disabled

12:08 <MTughan> Maybe it refuses all incoming connections with the firewall off... Although that's hardly standard.

12:08 <Snake> But it sure feels like the port is either being blocked or the client isn't opening a port

12:08 <MTughan> I'd bet more on the port being blocked...

12:08 <Snake> The only other port I have open shows up on a port scan

12:09 <MTughan> Hmm, so it's not declining incoming connections...

12:09 <PovAddict> Snake: try this on the Linux machine itself: nc -vv 31416

12:09 <PovAddict> (on a console)

12:09 <Snake> ok

12:09 <MTughan> It connects?

12:10 <PovAddict> if it says "open", then it connected

12:10 <PovAddict> if it says "connection refused", "timeout", or something like that... it didn't :)

12:10 <Snake> It connects

12:10 <MTughan> So the core client is opening the port...

12:10 <PovAddict> it's just inaccessible from other machines...

12:11 <PovAddict> do "ls *.cfg" on your BOINC directory

12:11 <Snake> hmm, then maybe I should reenable the firewall and open the port?

12:12 <MTughan> ls *.cfg gets me:

12:12 <MTughan> gui_rpc_auth.cfg  remote_hosts.cfg

12:12 <MTughan> As it should be.

12:12 <Snake> Me too

12:12 <PovAddict> you sure remote_hosts.cfg has the correct name? :)

12:13 <Snake> I have the IP addy of the remote machine in the remote_hosts.cfg as well as the FQDN

12:14 <PovAddict> the local IP right?

12:14 <Snake> Yes

12:14 <MTughan> If that file's there, the port should still be open...

12:14 <MTughan> I'd say reenable the firewall and add the port myself.

12:14 <Snake> Weird

12:14 *** Saenger has joined #boinc

12:15 <MTughan> I'm not seeing anything else different in the setups of our machines.

12:15 <MTughan> Even the versions are the same, 5.10.28.

12:15 <PovAddict> Snake: ok, trying to track it down from Windows is tricky due to lack of tools so... try adding the IP of another Linux machine on your remote_hosts.cfg (and restart the client), then get a console on that other linux machine

12:15 <xcamel> there.. fixed it..

12:15 <xcamel> text color better now..

12:15 <Snake> I only have the one linux box

12:15 <PovAddict> ah

12:15 <PovAddict> hmm

12:16 <MTughan> xcamel: Nice, I like it.

12:16 <Snake> I have an idea, brb

12:16 <CoderForLife> back for a bit

12:16 <PovAddict> xcamel: tried my CSS modification?

12:16 <MTughan> 'lo CoderForLife

12:16 <Romulus> Ah, so you dont care really

12:16 <MTughan> &stfu

12:16 * Romulus shuts up (fingers crossed)

12:16 <Rookie_69> Hi, Don.

12:17 <CoderForLife> hello MTughan xcamel PovAddict Snake Rookie_69

12:18 <CoderForLife> and KathrynM of the Alternate Reality

12:18 <MTughan> lol

12:23 <xcamel> 'lo Don

12:24 <Snake> Got it

12:24 <xcamel> fyi - version 2.0 of the "Oreo cool mint" cookies are much improved.

12:24 <MTughan> Snake: What was it?

12:24 <Snake> I had SELinux disabled but not the firewall

12:25 <MTughan> Ah, so the port was being blocked.

12:25 * Snake is a linuxN00b

12:25 <Snake> Yes

12:25 <MTughan> lol, we all start out that way.

12:25 <Snake> :)

12:25 <xcamel> indeed.... indeed...

12:25 <MTughan> How do you think we got to being able to do what we're able to do without screwing up a few times?

12:26 <Snake> I understand that for sure

12:26 <Snake> Fedora has a bit more security than Ubuntu desktop

12:26 <MTughan> Anyway, problem fixed. Have fun crunching!

12:26 <xcamel> but once you learn *nix... you'll never go back to the 'dark side'

12:27 <Snake> lol

12:27 <MTughan> Fedora's based on Red Hat (actually, Red Hat's based on Fedora), so it's a more enterprise desktop.

12:27 <Snake> I don't know, all my money is made from Micro$oft products

12:27 <PovAddict> I'll switch when I have the time to deal with migration

12:27 <PovAddict> Snake: do you work removing trojans from noobs' computers? :)

12:27 <Snake> Of course

12:27 <Snake> lol

12:28 <PovAddict> wow I actually guessed it?

12:28 <Snake> SOme of the Anti-virus software is worse than the viruses themselves sometimes

12:29 * Snake is away. BRB

12:30 <PovAddict> eek

12:30 <PovAddict> MTughan: look at the list of allowed values for internalFormat

12:30 <Romulus> <> (at

12:30 <MTughan> Says I need MathML...

12:30 <PovAddict> yeah ignore that

12:30 <xcamel> someone look at the boinc_logs page ant tell me if it's too hideous..

12:31 <Romulus> sorry for my maint person down in Adelaide

12:31 <PovAddict> xcamel: tried my CSS modification?

12:31 <PovAddict> background: url(boinc-bg.png) no-repeat fixed center;

12:31 <MTughan> Okay... What are all the formats used for?

12:32 <PovAddict> I gotta figure out which of those is the one I need...

12:32 <xcamel> in the css?

12:32 <PovAddict> yes, *instead* of your current background-image property

12:32 <MTughan> I mean, look at all the RGBA formats! GL_RGBA, GL_RGBA2, GL_RGBA4, GL_RGB5_A1, GL_RGBA8, GL_RGB10_A2, GL_RGBA12, and GL_RGBA16!

12:33 <PovAddict> in the current way, scrolling is annoying... all those logos moving >.<

12:33 <Snake> One thing I have noticed is that when I had that same machine running Windows Server 2003 it crunched faster than either Ubunto or Fedora

12:33 <MTughan> Snake: That could be the project apps too.

12:33 <PovAddict> MTughan: and guess what, I need RGBA... which of those, I don't know

12:33 <xcamel> inside the curly braces?

12:33 <MTughan> lol, I chose the right set...

12:33 <PovAddict> xcamel: yes

12:33 <Snake> MT, could be

12:33 <MTughan> In fact, it probably is. Project apps do the actual crunching.

12:34 <Snake> I would thing that the Linux apps would be more efficient given the gearheads that run it

12:34 <MTughan> It's more likely that the Linux versions for x86 aren't compiled with many optimizations at all, as they're supposed to support rather old versions of Linux.

12:35 <PovAddict> xcamel: try scrolling now

12:35 <MTughan> If you can get the application source though, and you're handy with GCC, you can optimize your own apps.

12:35 <MTughan> PovAddict, xcamel: That's cool...

12:36 <Snake> MT, last thing I programmed was Turbo Pascal 20 years ago

12:36 <Snake> lol

12:36 <MTughan> lol, nice... BOINC's in C++.

12:36 <PovAddict> Snake: you don't need to be a programmer to compile things from source

12:36 <MTughan> PovAddict: But to add your own optimizations?

12:36 <MTughan> At least GCC flags.

12:36 <PovAddict> -O2 and be done with it XD

12:36 <MTughan> No SSEx?

12:36 <Snake> I can compile it on my machine like I do Eggdrops?

12:36 <PovAddict> well, and that yeah

12:37 <PovAddict> make it use all the fancy things your CPU has

12:37 <CoderForLife> Ok away again

12:37 <MTughan> Snake: Eggdrops uses the ./configure and make method?

12:37 <MTughan> Bye CFL.

12:37 <xcamel> sweet..

12:37 <Snake> MT, yup

12:37 <xcamel> now it looks better..

12:37 <MTughan> So yeah, you can compile it.

12:37 <MTughan> What processor do you have?

12:38 <PovAddict> well depends what project(s)

12:38 <Snake> But I wonder if it would be worth it on that machine. It's an old dual processor PIII machine

12:38 <Snake> 1gz

12:38 <MTughan> Oh, so not much in terms of opts...

12:38 <PovAddict> if the "stock app" has no optimizations at all, you can do something

12:38 <Snake> If I had it running on this machine it would make more sense

12:40 <PovAddict> SSE (1) and MMX are available on PIII

12:40 <MTughan> So I read... What does MMX do though?

12:40 <PovAddict> and it looks like the PIII has a strange implementation of SSE... works, but it's slower in some way; maybe gcc can do the optimization in the right way for PIII

12:41 <PovAddict> "Programmers faced a code-scheduling dilemma: Should the SSE-code be tuned for Katmai's limited execution resources, or should it be tuned for a future processor with more resources? Katmai-specific SSE optimizations yielded the best possible performance from the Pentium III family, but was suboptimal for later Intel processors, such as the Pentium 4 and Core."

12:41 <MTughan> Wikipedia.

12:41 <MTughan> I just read that a few seconds ago... :P

12:42 <[RKN]frost> attention everyone! there will be a race at world community grid from march 1st to march 23rd. inform your team captains and pimp your cpus :)

12:42 <[RKN]frost>

12:42 <Romulus> <> (at

12:42 <PovAddict> really depends on which it has... Snake: any idea which of the PIII cores you have?

12:42 <Snake> copermine

12:42 <Snake> coppermine even

12:42 <Snake> If that answers your question

12:43 <MTughan> So it does support SSE...

12:43 <PovAddict> so it does support SSE, and maybe even "properly" :)

12:43 <MTughan> Well, your problem now... Lunch time.

12:43 <Snake> Which means?

12:45 <Snake> If I understand what you have posted previously the clinet shouls allready be optomized for the PIII, right?

12:45 <PovAddict> not really

12:45 <PovAddict> and depends what project too

12:45 <Snake> No?

12:45 <Snake> seti@home

12:46 <PovAddict> maybe they are, I can't tell :)

12:46 <PovAddict> well good news: lots of 3rd party optimized apps on seti, and relatively easy to compile from source

12:46 <Romulus> so, I deleted the whole point of having the My Account link at the airport now. bbl

12:46 <Snake> hmm

12:49 <PovAddict> do you have a 2.6 kernel?

12:49 <Snake> Is BoincView the best app to monitor all my machines from a single computer do you think?

12:49 <PovAddict> I never tried it

12:49 <Snake> Yes, 2.6.?

12:50 <Snake> ?

12:51 <PovAddict> SETI app, for processors with SSE

12:52 <PovAddict> here are some more

12:52 <Romulus> Title: Crunch3rs BOINC page (at

12:52 <Snake> No graphics. Does that mean the X clientmgr won't work?

12:52 <PovAddict> no, it means you won't have this ->

12:52 <PovAddict> the manager will sure work

12:53 <Snake> i see

12:58 <Snake> huh? it looks like Ubuntu processed a bit faster than fedora as well

12:59 <PovAddict> note some workunits may take longer than others

12:59 <PovAddict> so don't do speed comparisons only with one workunit on each :)

12:59 <Snake> I was looking at the floating point and integer speeds

13:00 <Snake> It was close between the 2 linux versions but significantly faster when it was running windows

13:01 <PovAddict> boinc benchmarks are far from perfect

13:01 <Snake> I suppose, but a 25% difference is quite a bit

16:12 <xcamel> $3.25 ?

16:12 <efc> $25 all total

16:13 <efc> 10 years ago I bought a Tyan Tiger-2 dual slot 1. It burned up (my fault) before I ever got the dual going. But I've never forgotten the dream!

16:14 <wdsmia> I have a dream

16:14 * CoderOnTheCouch wonders what happened to #boinc

16:14 <efc> P2's are gas guzzlers from what I remember

16:14 <CoderOnTheCouch> I leave for a moment to order pizza...

16:15 <efc> Excellent COTC, I see you are expanding your system too

16:15 * CoderOnTheCouch looks quizzically at efc

16:15 <Rookie_69> I'll take a small slice... if it'll fit in the drive bay.

16:15 <efc> my dual P2-266 would be slower than the p3-600 which is also sitting here waiting for a motherboard, or the P3-866's I could get in nearly unlimited quantity for $3

16:16 <CoderOnTheCouch> you can have a slice, you'll have to come here

16:16 <Rookie_69> Cin-cin city here I come.

16:16 <CoderOnTheCouch> lol

16:17 <Rookie_69> I'll see you in a week or so.

16:17 <CoderOnTheCouch> I'll save a slice

16:17 <efc> Later Rookie

16:17 <Rookie_69> Moo.

16:17 * efc hates having unused CPUs sitting around no matter how slow..

16:17 * CoderOnTheCouch nods in agreement with efc

16:18 <CoderOnTheCouch> I have a PII with 128MB RAM keeping the S@H candle burning

16:18 <Romulus> because the sockets are the same, and I'm just trying to read it a credit bonus w/o any checkpointing.

16:19 <CoderOnTheCouch> a very small candle, I might add

16:19 <efc> The P2s I liked, they are nice and sturdy in that cartridge

16:19 <efc> power hungry, if I remember right

16:19 <CoderOnTheCouch> that's my one ubuntu box

16:20 <CoderOnTheCouch> what I really want now is a dual quad core

16:20 <efc> Yeah yeah!

16:21 <CoderOnTheCouch> something strangely satisfying about the thought of 8 peas in one pod

16:21 <efc> You can pick up Xeon MBs cheap occasionally - like I saw a dual Xeon 2.8 for $75 recently (cpus included) - but usually require weirdo registered RAM

16:21 <xcamel> shoot the whole budget and go for a 4 way quad..

16:22 <CoderOnTheCouch> you're right, xcamel - should throw all caution to the wind and grab for the brass ring

16:23 <efc> ( if you were interested in that.. not sure if you could chunk those xeon's and get multicore versions)

16:23 <Romulus> Title: STARMICRO INC. - Detail (at

16:23 <CoderOnTheCouch> Hillary's campaign manager has resigned

16:23 <CoderOnTheCouch> totally off topic

16:23 <CoderOnTheCouch> sorry

16:23 <efc> When is she resigning

16:24 <CoderOnTheCouch> my main server is 2 Xeons hyperthreading

16:24 <CoderOnTheCouch> you can't resign from a job you'll never get

16:25 <efc> I've always turned HT off.. figure splitting the caches can't help anything

16:25 * CoderOnTheCouch waits for the pizza person to show up

16:26 <CoderOnTheCouch> HT was the reason I went with Xeons way back when

16:26 <efc> turned it on a few times to see the nice two graphs in Task Manager

16:26 <efc> If you have lots of IO-blocked tasks I guess it helps some

16:27 <CoderOnTheCouch> ah doorbell

16:27 <efc> But BOINC (S@H at least) is probably maxing out the L2 cache and splitting just makes it worse

16:27 <CoderOnTheCouch> pizza - bbiab

16:28 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

16:28 <PovAddict> efc: if you have lots of I/O blocked tasks, you just start more processes, I don't see why HT is needed for that

16:28 *** bia_ has joined #boinc

16:29 <PovAddict> one task blocks, the OS gives CPU to the other...

16:29 <PovAddict> all HT gives me is misleading % usage meters

16:29 <efc> It provides a fast context-switch, I think

16:30 <efc> its basically just an accelerated context switcher, similar to what SPARCs have. I think. I never heard what I'd consider a straight explanation of it.

16:30 <efc> SPARCs have multiple hardware contexts, I assume to support a large quantity of blocked tasks like you might see on a multiuser or server system.

16:57 <CoderOnTheCouch> let's see - that nets out to about $0.43 per hour

17:35 <spawny> hi, I have some files in my hard disk which doesn't appears in the manager, how can I relauch them?

17:36 <PovAddict> ...huh?

17:36 <spawny> sorry, I'm not english

17:37 <spawny> I had a problem on my computer, and boinc manager have lost the link to my past work

17:38 <spawny> How can I reload files in the manager?

17:39 <PovAddict> the manager doesn't do anything, the manager just shows you what the client is doing

17:39 <PovAddict> and you never "load files" into either

17:39 <spawny> so it's the client which lost my work

17:40 <xcamel> back again

17:40 <PovAddict> what are these files you see on your disk?

17:42 <spawny> the manager show me 2 projects, but I have 4 projects in my dir boinc/project

17:42 <PovAddict> hmm that's strange...

17:43 <PovAddict> you mean on the Projects tab of the manager, you see only two rows?

17:44 <spawny> Yes, how can relauch the  two other?

17:45 <PovAddict> you would have to attach again... but I think that wouldn't work correctly if you have the folders on boinc/projects

17:45 <xcamel> is he using linux?

17:45 <PovAddict> CTCP VERSION says he is

17:45 <spawny> I have them, but the client don't reconize them anymore, their doesn't appear oin the manager

17:46 <spawny> xcamel yes

17:46 <PovAddict> spawny: how did you install BOINC?

17:47 <xcamel> betting he lost the projectxx.xml files in the main dir..

17:47 <PovAddict> or entries in client_state...

17:47 <xcamel> you **should** be able to re-attach

17:47 <spawny> by a tutorial on the net, but the program works well until I have this problem in the launch of my computer

17:47 <xcamel> and it would pick them up..

17:48 <PovAddict> spawny: I mean, "apt-get install boinc", a rpm, compiled from source, using binary from

17:48 <PovAddict> or what else...

17:49 <spawny> apt-get

17:49 <xcamel> damn I hate those rpms..

17:50 <xcamel> boinc should all be in one dir - not spread like peanutbutter all over your box

17:50 <PovAddict> spawny: ok, please do this on the console: boinc_cmd --get_state | nc 5500

17:52 <PovAddict> hmm connected but not getting anything... stupid nc

17:53 <spawny>

17:53 <PovAddict> hmm you saw those on the list before?

17:54 <spawny> I don't understand

17:54 <PovAddict> maybe those aren't workunits

17:54 <PovAddict> they are temporary files that those two use

17:54 <PovAddict> you shouldn't be looking on CPDN internal files :)

17:55 <spawny> their worked yesterday

17:55 <spawny> cpdn?

17:55 <PovAddict> CPDN = ClimatePrediction.Net

17:55 <PovAddict> so you had them on the manager before?

17:56 <spawny> yes, and in this lauch, the manager tells he can't connect, then he add new rows

17:57 <PovAddict> well, I'm pretty sure you can't get them back...

17:58 <spawny> how can I delete them cleany so?, their's take 600Mo on my hard disk

17:58 <PovAddict> well, are you sure they had those names?

17:59 <xcamel> you can delete dead cdpn wu's any time...

17:59 <spawny> yes, we can see that on the picture

17:59 <xcamel> any one that is not 'in process'

17:59 <PovAddict> then you should be able to just delete those two folders

17:59 <xcamel> cdpn does leave a mess behind..

18:00 <xcamel> a really big mess...

18:00 <PovAddict> xcamel: point is that mess may be useful for them... in some years...

18:00 <PovAddict> some people actually backup all leftover files after each workunit is done...
