04:37 <fishsponge> which is the latest *stable* release of the BOINC client? i need to know which tag to check out of svn... 5.10.28 or 5.10.39

04:38 <fishsponge> or perhaps 5.10.45 ?

04:42 <fishsponge> this is for SuSE Linux 10.1 btw...

04:47 <CoderForLife> hello fishsponge

04:48 <CoderForLife> I was thinking the current stable Linux version was 5.10.28

04:48 <CoderForLife> &linux

04:48 <Romulus> CoderForLife: "linux" could be

04:49 <CoderForLife> well.. I wouldn't rush off to use *that* on SuSE

04:52 <clusty> well lastest SVNs work kinda of for me

04:55 <CoderForLife> and on that happy news...  brb  breakfast

05:07 <KathrynM> but you keep poking back

05:07 <clusty> its a matter of honour

05:08 <clusty> :D

05:08 <KathrynM> :)

05:13 <CoderForLife> Morning KathrynM

05:14 <CoderForLife> clusty: because Kathryn's home state just helped revivie Hillary's campaign

05:14 <CoderForLife> revive*

05:14 <KathrynM> hmmm...  Guess I'll have to take a peak at cnn

05:15 <CoderForLife> do you vote from over there?

05:15 <clusty> so which do you prefer guys?

05:15 <KathrynM> not in primaries

05:15 <clusty> hillary or barack?

05:15 <KathrynM> I never vote in primaries.  Just issues.

05:16 <CoderForLife> um - that would be a big NEITHER ONE from this corner of Ohio

05:16 <KathrynM> lol

05:16 <clusty> now you know how I feel

05:17 <clusty> left more like

05:17 <clusty> felt*

05:17 <clusty> i am never happy with the choice of candidates

05:17 <CoderForLife> local school levy was defeated by 84 votes

05:17 <clusty> and most of the time i end up not voting

05:17 <KathrynM> ouch

05:17 <KathrynM> 84?

05:17 <clusty> levy?

05:17 <clusty> whats that?

05:17 <KathrynM> will the recount?

05:20 <CoderForLife> def #1 - a tax levy on real estate (land property) to support schools

05:20 <clusty> :D

05:21 <clusty> thanks

05:21 <efc> thats our main school tax here

05:21 <efc> they should tax babies instead

05:22 <fishsponge> i'm compiling 5.10.28 for my Suse Linux 10.1 machine (because the 5.10.28_ubuntu version crashes every few hours) but during a "make" i get this:

05:22 <fishsponge> BOINCDialupManager.h:53: error: ISO C++ forbids declaration of ‘wxDialUpManager’ with no type

05:22 <fishsponge> BOINCDialupManager.h:53: error: expected ‘;’ before ‘*’ token

05:22 <fishsponge> any suggestions?

05:22 <fishsponge> does Suse 10.1 just not work with BOINC?

05:23 <KathrynM> I've not built the manager, just the client.

05:23 <KathrynM> Did you prepare the proper sacrifices?  :)

05:24 <clusty> fishsponge, what gcc are you using and what wx?

05:24 <clusty> fishsponge, there is no such thing as a linux not working with boinc

05:24 <clusty> just a matter of mopre headaches

05:24 <fishsponge> clusty: "gcc (GCC) 4.1.0 (SUSE Linux)" and "wxWidgets 2.8.7"

05:25 <fishsponge> Kathryn: what are sacrifices?

05:25 <fishsponge> KathrynM: what are sacrifices?

05:25 <clusty> blood

05:25 <clusty> :D

05:25 <KathrynM> ram?

05:25 <KathrynM> I have a dead stick of ram I'd be willing to sacrifice for you :)

05:26 <clusty> i have 4.1.3 gcc , but that shoud not matter

05:26 <clusty> did you get any missing libs during ./configure?

05:28 <fishsponge> clusty: ./configure appears to have worked perfectly... surely it would exit out if any deps were missing though, right?

05:28 <clusty> fishsponge, wrong :D

05:29 <clusty> you will bang your head later

05:29 <clusty> make sure it finds wx/GLx and such

05:29 <clusty> and do it with ./configure --disable-server

05:29 <fishsponge> clusty: ok, what do i need to grep the configure output for?

05:29 <CoderForLife> it's 0530 - time to get ready for w@#%

05:29 <CoderForLife> cya folks

05:29 <fishsponge> clusty: i'm running this (as per the BOINC web site:   ./configure --disable-server --enable-client CXXFLAGS="-O3 -funroll-loops -fforce-addr -ffast-math"

05:30 * CoderForLife waves a page of election results

05:30 <clusty> lemme recompile

05:33 <fishsponge> clusty: do you know what i need to grep for to look for errors in the configure?

05:34 <clusty> fishsponge, nope. sec

05:34 <clusty> i gotta recompile also the wx

05:34 <clusty> patience my young padwan :D

05:40 <clusty> fishsponge, the latest svn compiles

05:40 <clusty> which revision do you have?

05:40 <fishsponge> clusty: i have "boinc_core_release_5_10_28" because that was deemed the latest *STABLE*

05:41 <fishsponge> i need stable, because the 5.10.28_ubuntu version crashes every hour or two

05:41 <clusty> what svn command did you use?

05:41 <clusty> to check out that one

05:41 <fishsponge> svn co

05:41 <Romulus> <> (at

05:44 <efc> I wish s@h would let me buffer up a little more work..

05:46 <fishsponge> clusty: svn co

05:46 <Romulus> <> (at

05:48 *** efc has quit IRC

05:49 <clusty> fishsponge, works just fine for me

05:50 <clusty> do you have self compiled WX?

05:50 <Romulus> Oshkosh and a real name ?

05:50 <clusty> &stfu

05:50 * Romulus shuts up (fingers crossed)

05:51 <fishsponge> clusty: no, i installed the one available through my package manager built specifically for my distro

05:51 <clusty> compile it yourself

05:51 <clusty> might be that there is something funny with WX

05:51 <fishsponge> ok, will do...

05:51 <fishsponge> what a pain! lol

05:51 <clusty> kill the rpm one

05:52 <clusty> and compile

05:52 <clusty> install in your home

05:52 * KathrynM now realizes why I havne't tried the build the manager yet ;)

05:52 <clusty> and add in CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS -I/asdasdasd/include and -L/asdasdasda/lib

05:52 <clusty> took me 2 weeks to get boinc running like a whistle

05:53 <fishsponge> is there a way to use the manager on one machine to connect to another machine? well... i know there is a way, but it prompt for a password that i've never set, so i dont know what it's supposed to be!

05:53 <KathrynM> fishsponge, yeah

05:53 <KathrynM> but why don't you just compile the core client and use the manager from the berkeley package

05:54 <KathrynM> and honestly, there aren't that many changes beween .21 and .28

05:54 <KathrynM>

05:54 <Romulus> <> (at

05:54 <KathrynM> that's the change log

05:54 <fishsponge> KathrynM: what is the "berkeley package"?

05:54 <KathrynM> the .sh you can download from the BOINC site

05:56 <fishsponge> KathrynM: that's not a bad idea actually...

05:56 <KathrynM> It will work

05:57 <fishsponge> let me compile wxWidgets first, cos if that works, i'm sorted

05:57 <KathrynM> I compiled 5.10.4? (don't remember the last version) without the manager and just used the manager from the 5.10.21 .sh

06:06 <clusty> fishsponge, works?

06:10 *** FreeLarry58 has quit IRC

06:12 <fishsponge> clusty: still compiling wxWidgets...

06:12 <fishsponge> god it's slow...

06:16 <fishsponge> clusty: ok, i've run "./configure" and "make" in the wxWidgets dir, and i'm now cd'd into the boinc dir... am i supposed to run the following?

06:17 <fishsponge> ./configure --disable-server --enable-client CXXFLAGS="-O3 -funroll-loops -fforce-addr -ffast-math -L../wxWidgets/lib" CFLAGS="-I../wxWidgets/include"

06:18 *** FreeLarry58 has joined #Boinc

06:19 <fishsponge> well, to be more exactl, is this what you mean:     ./configure --disable-server --enable-client CXXFLAGS="-O3 -funroll-loops -fforce-addr -ffast-math -L../wxWidgets-2.8.7/lib" CFLAGS="-l../wxWidgets-2.8.7/include"

06:23 <fishsponge> clusty: u there? is the above command correct?

06:23 <Romulus> There are. They're in disguise.

06:24 <KathrynM> &stfu

06:24 * Romulus shuts up (fingers crossed)

06:31 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

06:37 <fishsponge> clusty: i guess you've disappeared.... so close, and yet so far!

06:40 <fishsponge> KathrynM: are you still around?

06:40 <fishsponge> KathrynM: currently, i can "Build Components: (client only) "

06:40 <KathrynM> yeah, I'm around fishsponge

06:40 <fishsponge> so i'm going to try your approach of using a different GUI... however, having now run "make", i don't have the .sh file in the sea/ directory as the instructions say i should, so i'm confused...

06:41 <KathrynM> give me a sec to figure out how I built it ;)

06:41 <fishsponge> god i wish this just worked...

06:41 <fishsponge> so frustrating...

06:43 <KathrynM> --prefix=/home/kathryn/boinc-test-build

06:43 <KathrynM> that's all I used to build it.

06:43 <KathrynM> grrr

06:44 <KathrynM> ./configure --prefix=home/kathryn/boinc-test-build

06:44 <fishsponge> ah, so you did a "make install" as well then, right?

06:45 <KathrynM> yeah

06:45 <KathrynM> then download the .sh from berk

06:45 <KathrynM> extract it

06:45 <KathrynM> copy the manager over from that new directory to your build directory

06:46 <fishsponge> ok, so i'm starting off with this:     ./configure --disable-server --enable-client CXXFLAGS="-O3 -funroll-loops -fforce-addr -ffast-math" --prefix=/home/boinc/BOINC-compiled

06:46 <fishsponge> right?

06:47 <KathrynM> I have no idea.  I'm serious when I say the ONLY thing i did was ./configure --prefix=/home/kathryn/boinc-test-build

06:48 <KathrynM> then make and make install

06:48 <fishsponge> hmm... that goes completely against what the BOINC web site recommends! lol

06:48 <KathrynM> lol

06:48 <KathrynM> it worked though :)

06:49 <MTughan> fishsponge: What are you trying to compile from BOINC?

06:49 <fishsponge> why is this such a pain! lol, i'm on about compiling in general - not BOINC. i can't stand compiling for just this reason, it just goes on, and on, and on, and on etc... and usually i lose interest before i've got a working compilation! lol

06:49 <KathrynM> why can't you use 5.10.21?

06:49 <fishsponge> MTughan: i just want to run BOINC, and have the GUI too

06:49 <MTughan> You want to build the core client?

06:49 <fishsponge> but the 5.10.28 "stable" version doesn't work on Suse 10.1 (it crashes every few hours), so i'm trying to compile it up...

06:50 <KathrynM> Do you need a link to .21?

06:50 <fishsponge> what is 5.10.21 and why should i use that instead of 5.10.28 on Suse Linux 10.1?

06:50 <fishsponge> is it known to work and be bug free?

06:50 <MTughan> I know I got a 6.1.8 core client build on Mac for 64-bit Intel machines that works.

06:50 <KathrynM> It works fine for me.

06:51 <KathrynM> IT's just a slightly older version

06:51 <fishsponge> but i'm on Suse 10.1 32 bit, not Mac 64-bit... surely that's a whole different ball game...

06:51 <MTughan> Yeah, but the steps should be similar.

06:51 <fishsponge> so you are suggesting just trying a different version to see if it works, right?

06:51 <KathrynM> yeah

06:51 <KathrynM> basicallyt

06:51 <fishsponge> thank you for your suggestion, but to be honest, if this latest compilation doesn't work, i'm giving up!

06:51 <MTughan> That's not a bad proposition on Kathy's part.

06:52 <KathrynM> I'm running 5.10.21 and it works fine for me.

06:52 <fishsponge> i'm easily defeated when it comes to compiling - and i've almost lost interest - i do really appreciate the help here though :-)

06:52 <MTughan>

06:52 <Romulus> <> (at

06:52 <MTughan> That's 5.10.21.

06:52 <fishsponge> 5.10.28 works perfectly for me on three other machines, just not my 10.1 box

06:52 <MTughan> Yeah, works fine for me on my Fedora 7 machine.

06:53 <MTughan> Did you try the latest version, 5.10.44?

06:54 <MTughan> Posted just two days ago.

06:54 <MTughan> It's a beta version, but that's just them being safe. There's rarely bugs in them.

06:54 <MTughan> I usually use the latest version on my Macbook.

06:54 <fishsponge> no, because 5.10.28 was listed as the "stable" version, and i only care about stable, not latest... despite the fact that it's probably a bugfix release, the word "stable" is what i followed...

06:55 <MTughan> All right, fair enough. Although checking out an SVN version isn't going to exactly be stable either.

06:56 <fishsponge> but i checked out 5.10.28 from svn, which is apparently "stable" - are you saying the SVN version of 5.10.28 is different from the 5.10.28_ubuntu version available for download from the main site?

06:56 <MTughan> Actually, another thing... Are you able to get a crash log for when it crashes?

06:57 <MTughan> No, the source isn't different true. But I'm sure the code was tested on other distros.

06:57 <fishsponge> how does "" differ from the "" available on the main site?

06:58 <KathrynM> the ubuntu one has the gui.  the other doesn't

06:58 <MTughan> They're the same actually.

06:58 <MTughan> Oh, sorry..

06:59 <MTughan> Where did you get the second one from?

06:59 <fishsponge> ah, and 5.10.21 has the GUI as well, i notice...

06:59 <MTughan> Oh, there it is...

06:59 <fishsponge> it's odd that they've removed the GUI unless you download the ubuntu version...

06:59 <fishsponge> 5.10.21 contains GUI, but 5.10.28 does not. However, 5.10.28_ubuntu does

06:59 <MTughan> I need to look harder before I talk...

07:00 <KathrynM> It was a matter of time.

07:00 <MTughan> Yeah, they label it Ubuntu for the newbies who want to run BOINC, because most of them run Ubuntu.

07:00 <KathrynM> Rom is handling the Linux and Windows build plus coding.

07:00 <MTughan> But it runs one most distros.

07:00 <MTughan> on*

07:00 <KathrynM> Trying to get a build with GUI that would run on everyone's machine was getting close to impossible.

07:01 <KathrynM> SO they went to a Ubuntu VM for compiling.

07:01 <fishsponge> ok, well i've given up on compiling for the moment, and i'm running 5.10.21

07:01 <fishsponge> let's see how that goes

07:02 <fishsponge> thanks for the assistance, everyone! :-)

07:02 <MTughan> np

07:02 <KathrynM> good luck

07:02 <MTughan> Although I think Kathy would've gotten you to that point anyway... :P

07:02 <KathrynM> hah.  I'm a linux idiot.

07:02 <KathrynM> Just remember that ;)

07:02 <MTughan> Heh.

07:03 <MTughan> I can do Windows, Mac, and Linux. :D

07:03 * KathrynM bows to MTughan

07:03 <MTughan> lol

08:14 <yoyo[RKN]> PovAddict: ?

08:14 <Romulus> It has been said that PovAddict: is all the work gone, yoyo[RKN]

08:15 *** sambabasse has joined #boinc

08:15 <sambabasse> hi

08:15 <yoyo[RKN]> i want create a file localy at the client and reuse it for the next workunit. therefore I set the result file to

08:15 <yoyo[RKN]>     <generated_locally/>

08:15 <yoyo[RKN]>     <sticky/>

08:15 <yoyo[RKN]>     <report_on_rpc/>

08:16 <yoyo[RKN]> but what about the workunit template?

08:16 <PovAddict> yoyo[RKN]: that's what I asked David, but I never tried his suggestion

08:17 <sambabasse> why mycomputer use only one of my two rpocessor?

08:17 <yoyo[RKN]> it should be referenced there also, at least with <opy_file>

08:17 <PovAddict> hi sambabasse

08:19 <sambabasse> and also, why my preferences doesn't saved when i close the windows

08:19 <MTughan> sambabasse: Could be that BOINC is configured to use only 1 processor at maximum.

08:19 <PovAddict> sambabasse: what project(s) do you run?

08:20 <sambabasse> lhc qmc and spinhenge

08:20 <PovAddict>

08:20 <Romulus> <> (at

08:20 <PovAddict> "On multiprocessors, use at most" what does it say on the other column?

08:22 <sambabasse> no, and it's not a matter because the manager couldn't save my preferences anyway

08:24 <PovAddict> well you shouldn't really change the prefs on the manager

08:24 <clusty> fishsponge, sorry. went for lunch

08:24 <PovAddict> that makes preferences on the website get ignored

08:24 <clusty> fishsponge, nope

08:25 <clusty> fishsponge, you have to do a setenv or export CFLAGS="-I<full path to WX>/include -L-I<full path to WX>/lib"

14:53 <yoyo_RKN> but the files were created, I saw it

14:53 <PovAddict> with the right names?

14:53 <mweltin> PovAddict, I assume I can use the benchmark data to standardize running times, what do you think?

14:53 <PovAddict> that you shouldn't try

14:53 <yoyo_RKN> aaaaaahhhhhh

14:54 <PovAddict> mweltin: particularly if replication > 1, you'll have trouble; each replication would process different amount of data!

14:54 <PovAddict> okay i g2g

14:56 <mweltin> PovAddict, I'm not sure I follow you, why would running the same instance of a problem process different amounts of data.

14:58 *** PovAddic1 has joined #boinc

15:00 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

15:00 *** PovAddic1 is now known as PovAddict

15:01 <mweltin> PovAddict, I'm not sure I follow you.  Why would the same problem instance process different amount of data?

15:01 <PovAddict> you said you want to use benchmarks to make all run the same time

15:02 <PovAddict> a 400MHz machine running for an hour can't produce the same results as a Pentium IV machine running for an hour, so how on earth will you validate those two results together?

15:03 <mweltin> I see, no I wouldn't limit the run time based on benchmark.  I would let them run for as long as needed.

15:03 <PovAddict> then what are you doing with benchmarks? :)

15:03 <mweltin> but after I need to compare run times of a 400MHz and a Pentium IV later

15:04 <mweltin> what I was asking was, COULD I use benchmarks to standardize the run times after the fact.

15:04 <PovAddict> if you make workunits take 2 hours no matter the computer speed, you will definitely get different results depending on the speed

15:05 <mweltin> lets say the PIV takes an hour, and the 400MHz take 2.5 hours how can I compare these ?

15:05 <mweltin> yes I understand that, and taht is not what I want to do.

15:05 <PovAddict> then I don't get what you want to do

15:06 <mweltin> I want them to run to completion.  Well as I mentioned I want to plot run time Vs. instance size.

15:06 <mweltin> so I need to standardize run times.

15:06 <PovAddict> ohh

15:06 <PovAddict> I thought "standardize run times" = "make them all run the same time"

15:07 *** okolehau has left #boinc

15:07 <mweltin> it could, but I'd rather standardize them after the fact.

15:07 <mweltin> I assume the benchmark values are different on different machines.

15:07 <PovAddict> sure

15:08 <PovAddict> if you want to just plot, calculate the run times after they're done is the right way

15:08 <mweltin> I was thinking I could use that as a multiplier or scaling factor to be able to compare run times from various machine.

15:08 <PovAddict> are you currently using default benchmark-based credits?

15:09 <PovAddict> claimed credits could be an easy way to get what you need :)

15:09 <mweltin> I'm not at the granting credit yet, but yes the requested credits will be the default (which I assume is benchmark based)

15:09 <PovAddict> they are already time taken / computer speed

15:09 <PovAddict> I mean abuse the claimed credit figure for your plotting needs

15:10 <mweltin> plot requested credit vs. instance size?

15:10 <PovAddict> yep

15:10 <PovAddict> requested credit is already based in time taken / computer speed

15:11 <mweltin> really?  I thought if it ran fast it would request less credit.

15:11 <PovAddict> nope

15:11 <mweltin> I see very different requested credit values for GA and BF results for the same WU.

15:11 <PovAddict> if benchmarks were perfect, fast and slow machines would all claim the same credits per WU

15:11 <PovAddict> (but slow machines would do less WUs a day, so would get less credits/day)

15:13 <mweltin> ok, so I'll just takes tons  and tons of sample points and get an average of claimed credits.

15:13 <mweltin> thanks again PovAddict!

17:59 <PovAddict> I got texture transparency to work on the primegrid screensaver code

18:00 <PovAddict> but it looks ugly

18:00 <Romulus> yea that's how it goes

18:00 <PovAddict> yeah Romulus

18:00 <Tank_Master> lol

18:00 <KathrynM> rommie's an expert on ugly :)

18:11 <PovAddict> one is ugly, one isn't

18:13 <Tank_Master> one is a plain background, the other is matrixfied

18:13 <PovAddict> yes, but I have the Photoshop file for the cool-looking one

18:13 <PovAddict> and after removing the matrix-like numbers, it still looks way better than mine

18:30 *** tricaric has left #boinc

18:37 <CoderOnTheCouch> is there some kind of IRC connection checker/monitor that you could run to watch for and diagnose connection issues?

18:37 <PovAddict> MSN and google talk disconnect even more often

18:37 <PovAddict> so... can't blame IRC

18:38 <CoderOnTheCouch> I only care about IRC

18:38 <PovAddict> wait are you talking about *your* connection issues or mine?

18:39 <CoderOnTheCouch> mainly the sign off/on every 30 seconds I'm seeing in PMs between me and anybody

18:39 <PovAddict> I think IRC doesn't even have such thing as sign on/sign off notifications

18:40 <PovAddict> so that must be a Miranda problem

18:40 <Romulus> they needed to be on the couch

18:40 <CoderOnTheCouch> ok.......

18:40 <CoderOnTheCouch> to my point

18:40 <CoderOnTheCouch> I want to know what's up

18:40 <CoderOnTheCouch> or down

18:40 <PovAddict> lol

18:40 <CoderOnTheCouch> or down and up

18:40 <CoderOnTheCouch> and *why*

18:53 <Soul_keeper> your telemarketing dollars hard at work

18:53 <PovAddict> not that surprising

18:54 <PovAddict> probably the telemarketers get paid coins and some bastard keeps a very big % of what the US company pays for the telemarketing service

19:14 <zombie67> hmmm....the AI admin is hiding posts of mine

19:16 <zombie67> did I write something bad?

19:17 <tricaric> hi

19:17 <zombie67> hello

19:17 <tricaric> I have a little problem: the upload/download server seems to be diabled

19:17 <tricaric>

19:17 <Romulus> Title: Server status page (at

19:17 <tricaric> how can I enable it?

19:18 <zombie67> I believe the status page has a bug, where it shows disabled, even when it isnt't

19:18 <zombie67> POV would know for sure

19:20 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

19:20 <zombie67> POV is usually not got for very long.

19:20 <zombie67> but you may need to ask again.  looks like he is having network issues

19:20 <tricaric> hehe, ok

19:21 *** PovAddic1 is now known as PovAddict

19:22 <PovAddict> I tihnk there's something on config.xml you may be missing

19:22 <PovAddict> -typos

19:22 <PovAddict> do you have a <www_host> on your config?

19:23 <tricaric> nope

19:23 <PovAddict> ah wait, that's set to the same as <host> by default

19:23 <PovAddict> do you have uldl_pid?

19:24 <tricaric> nope

19:24 <PovAddict> search for an file

19:24 <PovAddict> probably in /var/run or somewhere like that

19:25 <tricaric> I have /var/run/

19:25 <PovAddict> that will do :)

19:26 <PovAddict> <uldl_pid>/var/run/</uldl_pid>

19:26 <tricaric> hmm... OK, let me try!

19:26 <tricaric> do I need to stop/start after that?

19:26 <PovAddict> if that pid file isn't there, it would mean apache is not running, so people couldn't get into the server status page anyway!

19:26 <PovAddict> however, the mechanism is made so your downloads/uploads can be handled by a different physical server

19:29 <tricaric> thanks, let's see what happens...

19:29 <tricaric> the server_status page is cached... takes forever to refresh

19:29 <PovAddict> rm -rf html/cache/*

19:29 <tricaric> ha! says running now! Great, thanks!!

19:30 <PovAddict> I personally consider the mechanism a bit useless...

19:30 <FreeLarry58> PovAddict sent pm to you dealing with riesel project

19:30 <PovAddict> I modified it to read "upload server" (no download) and to check for stop_upload existence

19:31 * CoderOnTheCouch grabs a huge towel and tosses it into the room

19:31 <CoderOnTheCouch> I'm throwing in the towel for the evening

19:31 <CoderOnTheCouch> cya folks

19:32 *** CoderOnTheCouch has quit IRC

19:32 <PovAddict> tricaric: maybe also useful: mod server_status so the cache expires earlier

19:32 <PovAddict> like... 1 minute or so

19:32 <PovAddict> it gets really annoying when you're tracking down server problems and server status shows 15-mins old data

19:33 <tricaric> yes, it does...

19:33 <tricaric> still, it's not sending any work out: the scheduler.log looks like this:

19:34 <PovAddict> also, next time use something like

19:34 <PovAddict> a dozen lines pasted right into the chat get annoying

19:34 <tricaric> ok, sorry

19:36 <tricaric>

19:36 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at

19:37 <PovAddict> so you do have work there

19:45 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

19:50 <tricaric> another issue: php doesn't seem to connect to mysql from command line... I get errors such as:

19:50 <tricaric> Call to undefined function mysql_pconnect() in /home/boinc/projects/oah/html/inc/ on line 23

19:51 <tricaric> but on apache, php works fine

19:51 <PovAddict> php-cli may be using a different configuration

19:51 <PovAddict> lacking mysql support completely

19:54 <tricaric> ha! OK, I've copield the php.ini relative to apache to the cli one... seems to work better now..

19:59 <wdsmia> shouldnt it down load the app even with no work sent?

19:59 <PovAddict> nope

19:59 <PovAddict> files (apps included) are downloaded along with the first workunit that needs it

20:00 <wdsmia> ok

20:04 <tricaric> how do I remove WUs from the queue?

20:05 <tricaric> I mean remove results ready to be sent out

20:16 <tricaric> every now and then, I get these messages in scheduler.log:

23:40 <zombie67> Because we had some interesting discussions on the forum regarding the project development we would like to set up a separate forum for that. We will rename the Technical Issues forum to Project Development. The forum was meant initially for that but because it quickly took a different turn and is currently discouraging new participants from signing up we will convert it.

23:49 <tricaric> is there any FAQ for common BOINC problems, server side?

23:49 <tricaric> yes, he helped a lot, but still the WUs don't seem to get sent out

23:50 <zombie67> not sure.  probably on trac somewhhere

23:50 <tricaric> ok

23:59 <zombie67> fwiw, I am just a user.  I know nothing about how to set up servers.
