04:47 <CoderForLife> was a nice batch of LHC WUs yesterday

04:48 <FreeLarry58> yeah until thier server started to get shared memory errors

04:49 <FreeLarry58> for boinc total

04:51 <FreeLarry58> CoderForLife you ever get all your accounts condensed together or still have 3 or 4?

04:52 <CoderForLife> I did nothing

04:52 <CoderForLife> I used the same user name and e-mail address for everything

04:52 <FreeLarry58> ohh still several then unless you put several different projects on each machine

04:52 <CoderForLife> afaik

04:53 <Romulus> 20 threads at once...

04:53 * FreeLarry58 is remembering from past year or so when he last looked

04:53 <CoderForLife> I have some boxes with only one project

04:53 <FreeLarry58> think that was the problem with you getting several acct on boincstats

04:54 <CoderForLife> this machine was 20 projects

04:54 <CoderForLife> I had no idea that was the issue

04:54 <CoderForLife> I didn't know what caused it

04:55 * CoderForLife sniffs the air

04:55 <CoderForLife> ... breakfast ...

08:32 <PovAddict> your daily quota was reduced to 1 workunit per day

08:32 <HeXiLeD> under my login i dont even see what  you see wth that url

08:33 <PovAddict>

08:33 <Romulus> <> (at

08:33 <PovAddict> Maximum daily WU quota per CPU -> 1/day

08:33 <PovAddict> however, it shows no tasks recently, so I can't really tell why you get errors

08:33 <HeXiLeD> what does that min ?

08:33 <HeXiLeD> *mean

08:33 <PovAddict> and that daily quota could mean you won't get any more tasks till tomorrow :-\

08:35 <HeXiLeD> also, when using  boinc gui

08:35 <HeXiLeD> and i try to update

08:35 *** Celelibi has joined #boinc

08:35 <PovAddict> looks like it hasn't contacted rosetta server for a week

08:35 <HeXiLeD> it gets deferred

08:35 <PovAddict> go to Messages tab

08:35 <HeXiLeD> strange. cuz it runs 24/7

08:38 <Romulus> Title: Nopaste - No description (at

08:38 <HeXiLeD> that

08:38 <PovAddict> not requesting new work?!

08:39 <PovAddict> go to projects tab

08:39 <HeXiLeD> i have no idea

08:39 <HeXiLeD> ok

08:39 <PovAddict> and click on rosetta

08:39 <PovAddict> what are the buttons on the left? Update, Suspend, and?

08:39 <HeXiLeD> yes

08:40 <HeXiLeD> allow new tasks

08:40 <HeXiLeD> reset

08:40 <HeXiLeD> detach

08:40 <PovAddict> you have it set not to get more work :) click [allow new tasks]

08:41 <HeXiLeD> says now: no new tasks

08:41 <PovAddict> yep, "clicking this button will make it get no new tasks"

08:41 <PovAddict> now try updating again

08:41 <HeXiLeD> i did and i get deferred again

08:42 <PovAddict> paste messages again

08:42 <HeXiLeD>

08:43 <HeXiLeD> under tasks e just did resume

08:43 <HeXiLeD> under tasks I just did resume

08:43 <PovAddict> that task is way too old, abort it

08:43 <HeXiLeD> done

08:44 <PovAddict> now it should try to get more...

08:44 <HeXiLeD> ok and why dont  i see anything in my account on the website ?

08:44 <PovAddict> what do you mean "anything"?

08:44 <PovAddict> no credits?

08:45 <PovAddict> probably you never returned any work in time, or all you returned had errors

08:45 <HeXiLeD> i had 16 credits

08:45 <HeXiLeD> they granted me 16

08:45 <PovAddict> well those tasks were removed long ago, so I can't check what happened with your 16 credits

08:46 <HeXiLeD> and i allways get: communication deferred

08:46 <HeXiLeD> why is this?

08:46 <PovAddict> it means it won't communicate *again* until that time passes

08:46 <HeXiLeD> ok

08:47 <HeXiLeD> in this case .. 4 minutes?

08:47 <PovAddict> yeah

08:47 <HeXiLeD> after 4 min. it does the same

08:47 <PovAddict> it can't be contacting the server every second... :)

08:47 <PovAddict> do you have anything in Tasks tab now?

08:48 <PovAddict> or Work or whatever it was called in your GUI

08:49 <HeXiLeD> tasks has nothing

08:49 <PovAddict> and do you still see (not requesting new work or reporting completed tasks) on Messages?

08:49 <HeXiLeD> yes

08:49 <PovAddict> or do you see any "requesting .... seconds of work"?

08:50 <HeXiLeD> nop

08:50 <PovAddict> hrm

08:51 <HeXiLeD> ok it did it now

08:51 <PovAddict> and you seem to have got one

08:51 <HeXiLeD> requesting  8640 of new work

08:51 <HeXiLeD> its updating ..

08:51 <HeXiLeD> starting tasks

08:51 <PovAddict> see work tab

08:51 <HeXiLeD> i see stuff in tasks now

08:52 <PovAddict> well, don't suspend it or anything... you won't get any credit if you don't finish it by March 9th

08:52 <HeXiLeD> well the box works 24/7

08:53 <PovAddict> has anybody else here run Rosetta recently?

08:53 <PovAddict> KathrynM: you still around?

08:53 <HeXiLeD> i guess i clicked on something without knowing

08:53 <KathrynM> yeah

08:53 <HeXiLeD> PovAddict: if i do reset project do i lose all the credits ?

08:54 <PovAddict> HeXiLeD: no, but you lose the work you have in progress

08:54 <PovAddict> and apparently you won't get more till tomorrow

08:54 <PovAddict> KathrynM: any idea how long their current tasks are?

08:54 <HeXiLeD> ok

08:54 <KathrynM> user configurable run time on Rosie

08:54 <KathrynM> I think default is 3 hours

08:55 <PovAddict> yeah but they have new beta tasks... dunno if those follow settings yet

08:55 <KathrynM> they do

08:55 <KathrynM> rosetta, rosetta beta and minirosetta all do

09:02 <KathrynM> *sigh*

09:02 <KathrynM> Poor Henri

09:02 <KathrynM> How can I start the X?

09:02 <PovAddict> no X

09:02 <PovAddict> get over it

09:02 <PovAddict> <.<

09:02 <KathrynM> Not that I'd know how to start X.  But I'm not thinking about setting up a server

09:02 <PovAddict> >.>

09:03 <KathrynM> lol

09:03 <PovAddict> the new VM has no graphical interface, so he just can't

09:03 <KathrynM> I like clusty'

09:03 <KathrynM> errr

09:03 <KathrynM> I like clusty's response

09:04 <clusty> which is that?

09:04 <clusty> :D

09:04 <desti> startx

09:04 <clusty> ohh that

09:04 <clusty> KathrynM, whats so great about my response

09:04 <clusty> tell me how smart I am

09:04 <clusty> :D

09:05 <KathrynM> the part about not needing a gui

09:05 <clusty> i bloody wish I would just die than continue developing win apps

09:06 <KathrynM> lol

09:06 <HeXiLeD> $ startx

09:06 <KathrynM> I wish I could die rather than grade my students' writing

09:06 <PovAddict> HeXiLeD: yeah, except the VM has no X installed at all :)

09:07 <HeXiLeD> humm..

09:07 <clusty> well you can install X

09:07 <HeXiLeD> why is it need? i mean to use what kind of GUI´s ?

09:07 <clusty> nothing prevenmts you

09:07 <HeXiLeD> *guis

09:08 <clusty> dunno

09:08 <PovAddict> it's a virtual machine supposed to run as a *server*, and this guy expects to find X on it...

09:08 <clusty> ppl get scared of vim/nano

09:08 <clusty> bahhh

09:08 <PovAddict> if he needs X to do stuff, he shouldn't be trying to setup a boinc server

09:08 <clusty> the 16core machine I admin here has X :D

09:08 <HeXiLeD> boinc has a cmd line interface

09:08 <clusty> cause my boss wants it good looking

09:08 <clusty> :D

09:08 <KathrynM> well vim is scary

09:08 <HeXiLeD> boinc_cmd

09:08 <KathrynM> he's trying to set up the server

09:09 <clusty> i never used boinc_cmd

09:09 <clusty> just the GUI thing

09:09 <PovAddict> boinc_cmd sucks :)

09:09 * KathrynM is guilty of relying on boinc gui

09:09 <clusty> here is a dud with sense

09:09 <clusty> :D

09:09 <clusty> i could probably figure it out

09:09 <KathrynM> a dud?

09:09 <PovAddict> 1:1 mapping of the internal protocol

09:09 <KathrynM> :p

09:10 <clusty> dud and dudette

09:10 <clusty> :D

09:10 <Romulus> hydrogen -> car -> water out the tail pipr

09:10 <KathrynM> dude and dudette even

09:10 <clusty> dud is shorter :D

09:10 * KathrynM threatens to pull rommie's ram

09:10 <PovAddict> our messages -> Romulus -> random sh*t

09:10 <HeXiLeD> $ boinc_cmd

09:10 <HeXiLeD> Usage:  boinc_cmd [--host hostname] [--passwd passwd] command

09:10 <HeXiLeD> Give --help as a command for a list of commands

09:10 <clusty> damn. i starting to speak like idiot kidz

09:10 <clusty> :D

09:10 <KathrynM> hey no pickin' on lolcats

10:52 <eidolon> eh?  how?  :)

10:52 <eidolon> oh. hm.  the fopen () is failing locally?

10:53 <PovAddict> how did you install BOINC? official binaries or distro package?

11:02 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

11:04 <PovAddict> eidolon?

11:04 <eidolon> sorry

11:04 * eidolon is in an involved discussion elsewhere.

11:04 <eidolon> official binaries / distro on debian etch

11:05 <PovAddict> I mean did you apt-get install boinc, or download it from website?

11:05 <PovAddict> (or built from source? :D)

11:05 <eidolon> aptitude install boinc

11:05 <eidolon> this may just be a permission error.

11:06 <PovAddict> then I guess your data is in /var/lib/boinc?

11:07 <eidolon> yeah, looking t my local ubuntu install, most files are boinc:boinc.

11:08 <PovAddict> how did you start boinc?

11:08 <PovAddict> or does it auto-start?

11:08 <eidolon> /etc/init.d/boinc_client restart

11:08 <PovAddict> well I think boinc_client should change to the right user...

11:09 <PovAddict> hmm

11:09 <PovAddict> wonder why you ever ran as boinc

11:09 <eidolon> lemme fiddle permissions a bit.  i definately manually start4d it under root by hand a few times on the first machine

11:10 <PovAddict> just chown boinc:boinc on everything

19:06 <PovAddict> it runs OS X

19:07 <mweltin> so how do you connect to it?  I'm curious because I'm getting one as a wedding present soon.

19:07 <mweltin> and I don't like them much, or at least I tunes

19:08 <PovAddict> you need a little mess to jailbreak it first

19:08 <PovAddict> then you end up with an installer to get 3rd party apps

19:08 <PovAddict> so you choose OpenSSH from there :)

19:08 <mweltin> waht do you mean jailbreak ?

19:08 <mweltin> hardware hack

19:09 <PovAddict> no hardware touching

19:09 <PovAddict> you need to downgrade the firmware first

19:09 <PovAddict> anyway, currently I'm trying to run stuff on it

19:09 <mweltin> do you need a mac do to it with

19:09 <PovAddict> I copied a compiled binary but when I run it on ssh I get "permission denied"

19:18 <mweltin> I just started looking into it last night

19:19 <nickuwo> i c

19:19 <mweltin> haven't tied it yet, but would like to kno what to avoid

19:19 <nickuwo> what are your ultimate goals with BOINC?

19:23 <nickuwo> yea

19:24 <nickuwo> trying to find smallest number of vertexes all graphs contain subgraphs of a certain color

19:25 <xcamel> I think it'll have to warm up to snow...

19:26 <nickuwo> Pov? no free time?

19:26 <CoderForLife> it could snow carbon dioxide if it's cold enough

19:28 <CoderForLife> I "have to volunteer" some time tomorrow to go to Music Hall and review the disaster recovery plan of the symphony orchestra

19:29 <mweltin> ok I'm not coming up with a simple description of the ramsey, I get the color problem e.g. color verticies so no edge touches the same color at both ends.

19:29 <nickuwo> wikipedia?

19:29 <mweltin> so what is the ramsey deal?

19:29 <CoderForLife> my first question will probably be why the data center is located directly below the lobby fountain

19:30 <nickuwo> you know the party problem?

19:30 <mweltin> party problme, or parity, either way no.

19:31 <nickuwo> so the question you are asking in ramsey theory is...

19:31 <CoderForLife> ok - laterz

19:31 <mweltin> cya cfl

19:31 <nickuwo> How big do certain systems have to get in order to it be neccessary that all the elements share some property

19:33 <nickuwo> dealing with graphs, it becomes how many vetecies must you have to be positive that you have some x-vertex subgraph of a cetain color

19:34 <nickuwo> Smallest example is a triangle subgraph, and it turns out that if you have a 2-colored graph with 6 vertecies, you have to have a triangle of 1 color in the graph

19:34 <nickuwo> square is 18 verticies

19:34 <nickuwo> verticies?

19:34 <nickuwo> sp?

19:35 <nickuwo> anyway, 5 vertex subgraph is somewhere btw 43 - 49

19:35 <nickuwo> i think

19:35 <mweltin> nice

19:35 <mweltin> good luck with that

19:35 <nickuwo> and you can do it for more than 2 colors as well

19:35 <nickuwo> thanks

19:35 <mweltin> so why the wrapper

19:36 <nickuwo> cause I only have a few months, and I don't know c or c++

19:36 <nickuwo> or the BOINC API

19:36 <mweltin> better get started then

19:36 <mweltin> took me two months to get my first app running well.

19:36 <nickuwo> well I have the program already, just need to plug it in...

19:37 <nickuwo> 2 months?

19:38 <mweltin> I'm not a qucik learner

19:38 <mweltin> and I wrote my app from scratch

19:38 <mweltin> along with validators and such

19:38 <nickuwo> that awesome

19:38 <nickuwo> I couldn't do that

19:39 <nickuwo> the boinc api reads like... well something terrible

19:39 <nickuwo> did you have someone help you?

19:40 <mweltin> PovAddict, and the project mailing list

19:40 <nickuwo> cool

19:40 <nickuwo> PovAddict seems to be sick of me... what is the mailing list?

19:40 <mweltin> hahahaha

19:41 <mweltin> he is a popular guy here

19:41 <nickuwo> heh

19:41 <mweltin>

19:41 <mweltin> you can sign up for the list at the boinc website.

19:41 <nickuwo> awesome

19:42 <mweltin> you on linux ?

19:43 <mweltin> makes life easier than trying it on windows

19:43 <nickuwo> yea, I'm trying to get it to work on one of those pre-built VWs

19:43 <nickuwo> or VMs

19:44 <mweltin> I'm not good with abstraction layers, the best luck I have had was working on linux or some *nix

19:46 <mweltin> snak time bbiab

19:46 <nickuwo> I'm developing the client for windows tho, I got permission to run it at night on my university's computers, and I only have one box, so it's nice to run the server and client on one machine

23:34 <mweltin_> I hate my isp

23:34 <mweltin_> so anyway

23:34 <zombie67> yo

23:34 <nickuwo> whats goin on

23:35 <zombie67> mweltin, do you have a choice?

23:35 <zombie67> and even if you do, they would share the same pipe anyway, right?

23:35 <mweltin_> i hate my isp

23:35 <mweltin_> no

23:35 <mweltin_> yes

23:35 <mweltin_> same pipe

23:35 <mweltin_> regardless

23:36 <mweltin_> I missed anything you said nickuwo

23:36 <mweltin_> how do I "wrap" my application

23:36 <nickuwo> ?

23:36 <zombie67> ask pov or yoyo

23:36 <mweltin_> my impression from the wrapper page is that I build the wrapper as a what goes in my apps dir

23:36 <mweltin_> ok

23:37 <nickuwo> do you know anything about how work units work mweltin?>

23:37 *** efc has quit IRC

23:37 <zombie67> yo runs two projects on his site, both inside wrappers

23:37 <zombie67> yoyo

23:37 <mweltin_> yes

23:37 <nickuwo> perhaps you can help

23:37 <nickuwo> me

23:37 <mweltin_> clusty does as wel

23:37 <mweltin_> well*

23:38 <mweltin_> I can try

23:38 <nickuwo> ok

23:38 <mweltin_> what do you need help with

23:38 <nickuwo> Ithink set everything up correctly but...

23:38 <mweltin_> but...?

23:39 <nickuwo> when I connect with a client, it gives me - [error] State file error: missing file wu1293741967_16_8_0

23:39 <zombie67> FYI, yoyo is here frequently too, but he is in Germany, so account for the time shift

23:39 <nickuwo> and

23:39 <mweltin_> 12 hrs for me

23:39 <mweltin_> you can also find him on aim now and again

23:39 <nickuwo> [error] Can't handle task wu_1203741967_16_8 in scheduler reply

23:40 <nickuwo> ?

23:40 <nickuwo> you know what that means?

23:40 <mweltin_> no

23:40 <nickuwo> mm :)

23:40 <mweltin_> but I'm sure we can figure it out

23:40 <Romulus> <- everything here is a triangle of 1 color in the future."

23:41 <mweltin_> have other work units worked?

23:41 <nickuwo> no

23:41 <mweltin_> where did you pull that err0r message from some log?

23:42 <nickuwo> I turned on the HTTP error messages in my client

23:43 <mweltin_> you ran bin/status ?

23:43 <mweltin_> is everything running ok

23:43 <nickuwo> - http debug

23:43 <Romulus> <> (at

23:43 <zombie67> mweltin, you're here twice

23:43 <nickuwo> yes...

23:43 <nickuwo> everyhting is running, and locked

23:44 <mweltin_> yeah don't konw how ot get rid of "me"

23:44 <mweltin_> good

23:44 <mweltin_> so that message comes from the boinc client then

23:44 <nickuwo> yes

23:44 <mweltin_> so that is a good start

23:45 <mweltin_> at least the client is downloading something

23:45 <nickuwo> well... where does the server log stuff?

23:45 <mweltin_> have to check the "slot" dir for

23:45 <mweltin_> $proj_root/HOSTNAME_log

23:45 <mweltin_> sorry log_HOSTNAME

23:46 <nickuwo> ok

23:46 <nickuwo> nuthin in there

23:46 <mweltin_> ok

23:46 <mweltin_> post your job.xml to

23:47 <nickuwo> I think it's some issue with my make_work calls and naming choices

23:47 <nickuwo> ok

23:47 <nickuwo> 1 sec

23:47 <zombie67> mweltin!  You are so cool.  Giving back as you got.

23:48 <nickuwo> the one in apps?

23:48 <mweltin_> I helped clusty debug a python thing  a few days ago

23:48 <mweltin_> least I could do after all the help I got

23:48 <nickuwo> or downloads

23:48 <mweltin_> do your names collide?

23:48 <mweltin_> right now I think its the downloads but I have nothing to base that on.

23:49 <zombie67> did you see?  DA actually went along with one of my suggestions.

23:49 *** mweltin has quit IRC

23:50 <mweltin_> about what?

23:50 *** mweltin_ is now known as mweltin

23:50 <nickuwo> I'm using the job.xml on

23:50 <Romulus> Title: WrapperApp - BOINC - Trac (at

23:50 <mweltin> I think you need to customize that (not sure)

23:50 <nickuwo> ok

23:50 <zombie67> turning on "server-side abortion" by defautl

23:50 <nickuwo> hmm

23:51 <mweltin> DA finally added Pov's opaque patch to make work on my request.

23:51 <mweltin> good call

23:51 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

23:51 <mweltin> so nickuwo you just cut and pasted the job.xml as is?

23:51 <nickuwo> yea

23:52 <zombie67> too many projects, esp new ones, have no idea that they are wasting resources without it, when initial replication > quorum.

23:52 <nickuwo> it basically describes how to get the example up annd running on that page... doesn't say anything about custimizing it

23:52 <mweltin> ok so you and I have the same question

23:53 <mweltin> nickuwo, its geared to be more generic

23:53 <nickuwo> dammit

23:53 <mweltin> let me look at the source, what I don't get is how the wrapper gets wrapped around the legacy app.

23:53 <nickuwo> right... I assumed it would explain how to get the "worker" program to work with the wrapper

23:53 <mweltin> do you compile them both together.

23:54 <Romulus> or Work or whatever it was a virus

23:54 <nickuwo> no

23:54 <nickuwo> the wrapper just executes "worker" with some command line parameters, optionally passed by the server

23:55 <nickuwo> in perhaps an input and/or output file

23:55 <nickuwo> and perhpas

23:55 <mweltin> so your app the you are wrapping around is called "worker"?

23:56 <mweltin> for example I whatn to run an app called acotsp

23:56 <nickuwo> yea, it's the demo program that comes with the wrapper program

23:56 <mweltin> ok

23:56 <mweltin> cool

23:56 <mweltin> and what did you put in you project/apps dir?

23:57 <nickuwo> just what that website told me to... both the worker prog and wrapper prog, and that job.xml

23:57 <nickuwo> I basically followed those directions to a t

23:58 <mweltin> hahaah

23:58 <mweltin> you ran update/versions ?

23:58 <nickuwo> except I added a make_work daemon to constantly make work units

23:58 <nickuwo> no

23:58 <nickuwo> :)

23:58 <nickuwo> thats the only thing i didn't do, i think

23:59 <mweltin> what seems odd is that your client wouldn't download anything until you ran that.

23:59 <nickuwo> ran make_work?
