19:40 *** mweltin has joined #boinc

19:44 *** efc has quit IRC

19:50 <zombie67> pov, you there?

19:56 <MTughan> Whoa, cool! BOINCStats went to 3D graphs!

19:56 <zombie67> yep

19:57 <MTughan> Would've been just earlier today, because they weren't when I loaded it this morning.

19:57 <Romulus> or was it 30,000

19:57 <zombie67> the app_info.xml is having problems

19:57 <zombie67> 2/14/2008 4:28:36 PM|chess960@home alpha|[error] No app version for result: windows_x86_64 -1

19:58 <zombie67> even more weird, the project thinks 3 results are on my machine, and there are none.

19:59 <MTughan> It'd be useful to be able to abort tasks from the web interface...

20:00 <zombie67>

20:00 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Mine - post number 904551 (at

20:01 <MTughan> Looks fine to me...

20:02 <zombie67> dang.

20:03 <MTughan> Why did you need an app_info.xml again?

20:03 <xcamel> &Katz!

20:03 <Romulus> xcamel: "Katz!" could be

20:03 <MTughan> Actually, I think I may know the problem...

20:03 <MTughan> It's a x64 XP machine, right?

20:04 <zombie67> I get "windows_x86_64 not found"

20:04 <zombie67> yeah

20:04 <MTughan> I think we had this same error on your Mac...

20:04 <MTughan> WithTSP.

20:04 <zombie67> what was the solution?

20:04 <MTughan> Change the <platform> tag to windows_x86_64. So <platform>windows_x86_64</platform>

20:05 <MTughan> Even though it's a 32-bit app, make BOINC think it's a 64-bit.

20:05 <zombie67> where is that?

20:05 <MTughan> Not sure if you remember, but we did the opposite with Leopard. BOINC was looking for i686-apple-darwin and we gave it x86_64-apple-darwin. Once it was changed, it worked.

20:06 <MTughan> Line 20 according to the paste.

20:06 <zombie67> ah!

20:06 <MTughan> We'll have to tell Pov that when he comes back.

20:08 <xcamel> that used to work ok...

20:08 <MTughan> Doesn't now.

20:08 <MTughan> BOINC looks for the platform it was compiled for. Fallbacks seem to be disabled or something.

20:09 <zombie67> it may take a day before any more work is available.

20:09 <MTughan> The work generator is still going?

20:09 <zombie67> it trickles out work

20:10 <MTughan> Wow...

20:10 <zombie67> that is why I need to get as many machines on it as possible.

20:10 <MTughan> That should enable all the 64-bit machines if it does work. I imagine the 32-bits already have it working?

20:11 <zombie67> yeah

20:13 <MTughan> Do you know if their app is open-source?

20:13 <zombie67> no idea.

20:13 <zombie67> their admin is MIA

20:17 <zombie67> okay, updated the 6 XP64 machines

20:17 <Romulus> I sense a new tab, it tabs over in 20 minutes of data to collect and consolidate.

20:18 <MTughan> Also, just sent an email to boinc_dev mailing list about the 64-bit builds of the Manager.

20:18 <MTughan> Mac version that is.

20:18 <zombie67> k

20:19 <MTughan> And turns out I was looking at the arches of the wrong file, but there still is no 64-bit build.

20:19 <MTughan> With the right file.

20:19 <zombie67> thanks for the help.  tell pov is you see him.  gotta run

20:19 <MTughan> Yep, will do.

22:09 * wdsmia slaps Tank_Master around with a large Trout

22:09 * MTughan joins wdsmia

22:09 * MTughan hits Tank_Master with a terrifying mIRC 6.01

22:10 * Tank_Master slaps wdsmia around a bit with a large trout

22:10 <MTughan> You're slapping the op?

22:10 * Tank_Master makes note that unlike MTughan's sexlife, mIRC 6.01 did infact perform well

22:11 <wdsmia> lol

22:11 <Tank_Master> Ops dont scare me!

22:11 <Tank_Master> ;)

22:11 *** ChanServ sets mode: +o wdsmia

22:11 <MTughan> This will be interesting...

22:11 <Tank_Master> hehe

22:11 *** wdsmia sets mode: -v Tank_Master

22:11 <Tank_Master> probably

22:11 <KathrynM> y'all seem to have an obsession with fish

22:12 <KathrynM> I wonder what Freud would say about that.........

22:12 <MTughan> wdsmia: Voice won't do anything.

22:12 <Tank_Master> fish is one of my team's best, and also the founder

22:12 <wdsmia> it was worth a try :)

22:12 <MTughan> If you want to shut him up, ban him.

22:12 <PovAddict> wdsmia: ban him (without kicking)

22:12 <Tank_Master> none has voice anyway

22:12 <Tank_Master> so taking away something I dont have really doesnt affect anything

22:12 *** wdsmia sets mode: -o wdsmia

22:13 <MTughan> True, but you don't currently have a ban on you...

22:13 * Tank_Master knows wdsmia is a fair and fun op! ;)

22:13 <wdsmia> suck-up :P
