00:07 *** BiteAbleKat has joined #boinc

00:07 *** BiteAbleKat is now known as tamar

00:07 *** tamar is now known as BiteAbleKat

00:07 <zombie67> ah!  you're from orbit!

00:07 <tricaric> yep

00:08 *** MTughan has quit IRC

00:09 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

00:10 <zombie67> How far away is work for Windows or OSX?

00:10 <zombie67> days?  weeks?  Months?

00:10 <zombie67> just trying to get an idea

00:10 <tricaric> well, some WUs are already in queue, for the test app "rng"...

00:11 <tricaric> more serious apps will come in maybe a couple weeks

00:11 <zombie67> Ah!  There's a win app just added!

00:11 <zombie67> sweet!

00:13 <zombie67> any plans for OSX?

00:13 <tricaric> that's also possible.. very few OSX hosts registered for now to orbit

00:13 <zombie67> heh.  that's 'cuz no apps

00:14 <tricaric> I see...

00:14 <zombie67> I have 6 I could attach.

00:15 <zombie67> for a breakdown look here:

00:15 <Romulus> <> (at

00:16 <zombie67> mac is a bit over 5%...and growing

00:16 <zombie67> they are up to about 10% of new sales now

00:17 <tricaric> OSX it's easier to compile than Win on average, so there should not be problems to keep the apps compiled on all 3 platforms..

00:17 <tricaric> it's mainly a matter of setting up the devel environment on each platform, and keep it updated and working as BOINC gets updated..

00:17 <zombie67> Cool.  I know OSX comes last.  Good to know it hasn't been ruled out

00:18 <tricaric> absolutely... I also plan to provide apps for x86-64 linux

00:19 <zombie67> nice.  you will prpbably get a lot of requests for win 64, assuming 64 bit improves performance

00:19 <zombie67> for your app

00:21 <tricaric> that's is a bit harder, I don't have such platform to compile on it... but orbit@home is going to release the sources of the app, os that volunteers can port it to whatever platform they wish

00:24 <zombie67> Ah!  great news.  There are a number of folks who have done that for all the open source projects.   They'll be begging for the source code.

00:26 <Wabbit98> right, it says KWSN already exists at Orbit, yet when I search for it; it does not show up

00:27 <tricaric> ?

00:28 <Wabbit98> The Knights Who Say Ni!

00:28 <Wabbit98> I created my account and tried to create the team

00:28 <Wabbit98> but it said it already existed

00:28 <Wabbit98> I went and searched for it and I could not find it

00:28 <Wabbit98> must be blind

00:32 <tricaric>

00:33 <Romulus> <> (at

00:33 <Wabbit98> thanks

00:34 <Romulus> this overgrown honeysuckle around my property doesn't stand a chance to spin down

00:34 <Wabbit98> when attaching do I want to use this url? :

00:34 <Romulus> Title: orbit@home (at

00:34 <tricaric> this should work:

00:34 <Romulus> Title: orbit@home (at

00:35 <Wabbit98> it worked

00:36 <zombie67> or use BAM

00:36 <Wabbit98> opps, might be no owkr yet for Win boxes

00:36 <Wabbit98> work

00:37 <zombie67> works just fine

00:37 <zombie67> just no work avail yet

00:38 <tricaric> I'm generating test WUs, but the system doesn't send them out... trying to figure out why...

00:38 <Wabbit98> I can't believe someone beat me and created the KWSN team first

00:38 <Wabbit98> tricaric, if it helps I am not getting any error messages about no work being sent

00:38 <tricaric> what does the client says?

00:39 <Wabbit98> 3/5/2008 9:38:16 PM|orbit@home|Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.  Requesting 2385 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

00:39 <Wabbit98> 3/5/2008 9:38:21 PM|orbit@home|Scheduler request succeeded: got 0 new tasks

00:39 <Wabbit98> 3/5/2008 9:38:21 PM|orbit@home|Message from server: No work sent

00:41 <tricaric> thanks

00:41 <tricaric> yes, that's the problem... nothing gets sent, with no error... that makes it difficult to understand what's wrong..

00:41 <tricaric> ;)

00:41 <Wabbit98> as I said

00:41 <Wabbit98> it probably does not help much

00:42 <zombie67> calling POV!

00:43 <zombie67> naw

00:44 <zombie67> it's 3:43 Am there

00:44 <Wabbit98> call MT

00:44 <Romulus> Tanpaku is my ACO only takes a certin style of instance file is called "worker"?

00:47 *** zombie67 has left #boinc

00:51 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

00:54 <Wabbit98> tricaric any ideas of why you are creating WU's, but that they are not going out?

00:56 <zombie67> wabbit, that is what he is here for

00:56 *** nickuwo has quit IRC

00:56 <zombie67> he has been asking for help

00:56 <tricaric> not really... I'm checking the parameters of the WU, like flops limit and so... It looks connected to the right application in the db

00:56 <zombie67> problem is that it is 4:00 AM for POV

00:57 <tricaric> hey, don't worry... it's a learning process for me anyway

01:00 <zombie67> I have been watching admins bringing up many projects.  Never seen this problem before.

01:01 <Wabbit98> most of the time I get some sort of weird error

01:01 <Wabbit98> and sometimes BOINC has just shut down on me

01:06 <zombie67> tricaric. a request

01:06 <zombie67> can you please add a link to Server Status to the home page?

01:07 <zombie67>

01:07 <Romulus> Title: Server status page (at

01:07 <tricaric> sure, I plan to do this soon

01:07 <zombie67> thanks.  That is really helpful to let folks look on their own, rather than having to ask all the time.

01:11 <tricaric> done

01:16 <zombie67> really?

01:17 <tricaric> yep, in the Status menu of the main page

01:17 <zombie67> Ah!

01:17 <zombie67> Thanks.

01:18 <zombie67> But...folks familiar with BOINC won't be looking there.  They will be looking here:

01:18 <Romulus> Title: orbit@home (at

01:18 <zombie67> Here are some other project examples:

01:18 <Romulus> Title: TSP (at

01:19 <zombie67>

01:19 <Romulus> Title: MindModeling@Home (Beta) (at

01:19 <zombie67>

01:19 <Romulus> <> (at

01:23 <tricaric> OK, I'll add that later..

01:25 <zombie67> thanks again.

01:31 <Tank_Master> hey

01:31 <Tank_Master> the orbit guys is here to clean the galixy

01:31 <Tank_Master> ;)

01:31 <Wabbit98> the roomba will clean the universe

01:32 <Tank_Master> ahh

01:32 <Tank_Master> my bad

01:41 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

01:41 <tricaric> it's working!!

01:41 <tricaric> sending out WUs now!

01:42 <Wabbit98> dang work is already gone

01:42 <tricaric> the problem was because I set the "beta" flag to 1 in the app description, and for some reason, no client wanted it

01:42 *** wraund has quit IRC

01:43 <tricaric> it's a really quick test app, takes just seconds...

01:52 <zombie67> ah!

01:53 <zombie67> there is a project preference you can enable, that then users can turn on/off for test work

01:54 <zombie67> that is probably what that beta flag is for

01:54 <zombie67> It is officially "Run test applications?"

01:57 <zombie67> yeah, I received none too

01:57 <zombie67> major milestone!  celebrate!

01:58 *** nickuwo has joined #BOINC

01:58 <Wabbit98> time to get drunk and party

05:52 <KathrynM> LOl clusty

05:52 <clusty> :D

05:53 <clusty> nice to twist ppl's words aint it?

05:53 <KathrynM> lol

05:53 <clusty> i guess you are not into metal

05:53 <clusty> heard of a band called nightwish?

05:53 <Romulus> I see, no I wouldn't rush off to bed...

05:54 <KathrynM> nope

05:55 <clusty> well there is some youtube funny misheard lyricsa

05:56 <CoderForLife> ack

05:57 <CoderForLife> looks like the uplink port from my 13-year-old 10mpbs Synoptics hub to my NetGeat 100mbps switch has gone out

05:57 <CoderForLife> I *hate* it when that happens

05:58 <CoderForLife> NetGear*

05:58 * CoderForLife plots his remediation approach

05:59 <clusty> CoderForLife, i am very disappointed with my netgear router

05:59 <clusty> i torrent quite a bit and need to be able to route a lot off connections at the same time

06:00 <Romulus> that was the amount of data?

06:00 <clusty> &stfu

06:00 * Romulus shuts up (fingers crossed)

06:02 <CoderForLife> My NetGear switch has been great

06:02 <CoderForLife> I also have a spare

06:02 <CoderForLife> NetGear FVS 338 I believe

06:03 <clusty> well my router was cheapo, true

06:03 <clusty> but same pricerange linksys did much better

06:04 <CoderForLife> Looks like my old Synoptics hub can't uplink to the NetGear switch after the broadband stuff yesterday

06:05 <CoderForLife> net impact today is that I have a bunch of boinc machines that can't speak to the Internet

06:08 *** Fjodor has quit IRC

06:09 <clusty> CoderForLife, how many boinc clients are you running?

06:11 <KathrynM> lol

06:11 <KathrynM> The Linux philosophy is ‘Laugh in the face of danger.’ Oops. Wrong one. ‘Do it yourself.’ Yes, that’s it.

06:12 <CoderForLife> back

06:12 <CoderForLife> looks like I'm going to order this:

06:13 <Romulus> <> (at

06:13 <CoderForLife> for delivery tomorrow

06:15 <CoderForLife> I currently have an 8 port 10mbps hub there

06:18 <CoderForLife> back to data center to prove a theory before ordering

08:52 <clusty> fishsponge, how did you solve your boinc issue?

09:00 <KathrynM> clusty, is there a way to find out if a crontab is going to blow up when cron gets around to running it?  basically I want to know if I majorly screwed up anything.

09:02 <clusty> hmmm

09:02 <clusty> try running command by hand

09:02 <fishsponge> clusty: i solved it by just using 5.10.21 in the end!

09:02 <KathrynM> hmmmmm

09:02 <clusty> and eyeball that the syntax is ok

09:02 <KathrynM> I wonder if I should just take my chances.

09:02 <KathrynM> It's nothing major.

09:02 <clusty> take chances

09:02 <clusty> :D

09:02 <KathrynM> lol

09:03 <clusty> install mutt

09:03 <clusty> so you can read emails it sends you

09:03 <KathrynM> I've got pine ;)

09:03 <clusty> fine

09:03 <KathrynM> That's part of what I wrote the crontab for.  To do monthly mailboxes

17:32 <CoderForLife> I found my problem this morning - didn't have to order any replacement network components

17:33 <KathrynM> nice

17:33 <KathrynM> I found a typo in my new crontab :/

17:33 <CoderForLife> when working with the cable guy, 3 nearly identical gray cables got confused

17:33 <KathrynM> which may actually be a good thing because I think if I hadn't make the typo cron would have blown up

17:33 <KathrynM> you need colored ribbons to tie on them :)

17:34 <CoderForLife> I was an hour late for w@#%, but my servers could report boinc results =)

17:34 <KathrynM> well that's all that imporant

17:34 <KathrynM> important even

17:34 <CoderForLife> indeed

17:34 <CoderForLife> both

17:34 * CoderForLife runs another speedtest

17:36 <PovAddict> official iPhone SDK announced today

17:36 <PovAddict> some bastard on IRC was bragging about how fast he downloaded it

17:36 <CoderForLife>

17:37 <CoderForLife> omg

17:37 <PovAddict> indeed

17:37 <PovAddict> apple developer site went down

17:37 <PovAddict> overloaded

17:37 <CoderForLife> 8 ms ping

17:37 <PovAddict> with all the downloads

17:38 <CoderForLife> must be on Internet2

17:38 <PovAddict> or within the same LAN as the speedtest server...

17:38 <CoderForLife> that's an unholy amount of bandwidth

17:38 <PovAddict> yours seems unholy to me too

17:38 <CoderForLife> lol

17:38 <PovAddict> can't do a speedtest myself now

17:38 <CoderForLife> it's a nice bump up

17:38 <PovAddict> downloading via http *and* bittorrent at the same time

17:39 <CoderForLife> since they swapped the modem and fixed the configuration

17:39 <CoderForLife> I wish I had more upload speed

17:39 <KathrynM> glad they got it fixed for you

17:39 <CoderForLife> considering the web sites I host

17:39 <Romulus> anyway, I must head back into w@#% - got a few people really do it

17:39 <CoderForLife> thx K

17:40 <CoderForLife> pick up some weather forecasts on the way, Rommie

17:42 *** nickuwo has quit IRC

18:45 <KathrynM> give me a hint on what to change so it will run unatteneded

18:47 <KathrynM> every once in a while you get something right rommie

18:48 <CoderOnTheCouch> um - you'll need to pass the answers to the "read"s as parameters

18:49 <zombie67> I did a comparison between three projects with 64 bit apps (that are actually faster w/ 64 bit), and Einstein with the new opt app.

18:49 <zombie67> TSP BF, ABC, PG Sieve

18:49 <zombie67> across 6 machines

18:49 <zombie67> 80 results for each machine at each project

18:50 <zombie67> Except for einstein.  I have only a few for each machine there

18:50 <zombie67> the results are pretty interesting

18:50 <KathrynM> oh that helps :/

18:50 * KathrynM wishes I wasn't such an idiot

18:50 <zombie67> the file is 64_bit_analysis.xls

18:51 <zombie67> the 3 machines are a C2D, two AMD X2s, and 3 PD 9xx

18:52 <zombie67> For TSP, one of the AMDs was actually faster than the C2D!

18:53 <zombie67> By machine, the project that earned the most credits was ABC, but not by much!  The exception was the C2D which did best at PG

18:55 <zombie67> also, with the C2D, the 32 bit opt app for einstein generated almost as much c/h as ABC.

18:57 <zombie67> I was impressed with the performance of the X2 vs. PDs.  For the 32 bit stuff, they are not as competitive.

19:05 *** mweltin has joined #boinc

19:05 <nickuwo> my wrapper is looking for job.xml but my job file gets downloaded as job_5.40.xml....

19:05 <PovAddict> job.xml is on your application?

19:05 <mweltin> job.xml=job_5.40.xml

19:06 <PovAddict> yea what he said

19:06 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

19:06 <mweltin> should be the file name

19:06 <nickuwo> in /donwloads/

19:06 <nickuwo> ?

19:06 <mweltin> no in apps/

19:06 * KathrynM is away: I may still exist in an alternate reality...

19:06 <mweltin> it gets copied to downloads

19:07 <nickuwo> it is, but when I run update versions, it renames it to job_5.40.xml

19:07 <mweltin> but you need that long filename

19:07 *** Fjodor has quit IRC

19:07 <KathrynM> laters all.  enjoy your $TIMEOFDAY

19:07 <mweltin> for example my job.xml file is called

19:07 <mweltin> job.xml=job_1.1.xml

19:07 <nickuwo> ane then my lcient downloads it as that name

19:07 *** Fjodor has joined #boinc

19:07 <mweltin> bye KathrynM

19:08 *** soul_ is now known as Soul_keeper

19:08 <mweltin> yes, but the wrapper knows what to look for job.xml

19:08 <nickuwo> hmm

19:08 <mweltin> yeah

19:08 <nickuwo> mine does not :(

19:08 <mweltin> its all on that wiki page

19:08 <Romulus> i whipped up one for my distro

19:08 <mweltin> you have to make a new version and then run update_vesions

19:08 <nickuwo> ok

19:11 <mweltin> I went through the same sing with Pov just this Monday.

19:12 <nickuwo> did you have signature probs too?

19:12 <nickuwo> cause I am

19:12 <mweltin> no

19:12 <mweltin> are you signing everything in the apps dir?

19:12 <nickuwo> yea

19:13 <nickuwo> even when I let update_versions sign everything my client tells me the sigs do not match

19:13 <mweltin> where are the keys?

19:13 <mweltin> in the project dir?

19:13 <mweltin> I had a similar problem

19:13 <nickuwo> in the keys dir

19:14 <nickuwo> I think

19:14 <mweltin> what are the perms on the keys?

19:14 <nickuwo> perms?

19:14 <nickuwo> oh

19:14 <nickuwo> lemme check

19:18 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

19:18 <nickuwo> for a minute i thought you were talking about their hairstyles

19:18 <nickuwo> mmmm the 70's

19:20 <mweltin> try 644

19:20 <mweltin> not the safest option

19:21 <mweltin> but should work at least to see if it is a permission issue.

19:21 <mweltin> As I recall the webserver needs to be able to read them.

19:21 <mweltin> I have apache running as an apache user, and that user belongs to the boinc group

19:21 <mweltin> so I have 640 and that works.

19:26 <nickuwo> ok

19:27 *** flight16 has joined #boinc

19:32 <nickuwo> should I use sign_executable to sign all files in apps or just executables?

19:33 <nickuwo> prolly all

19:33 <CoderOnTheCouch> c u

19:34 *** CoderOnTheCouch has quit IRC

19:37 *** cactaur has quit IRC

19:38 <mweltin> no crypt_prog

19:39 <nickuwo> I thought I used crypt_prog to generate keys, then sign them with sgin_executable

19:40 <mweltin> could be but I use crypt_prog to sign them as well, that always worked for me.

19:40 <nickuwo> like crypt_prog -sign "file" private_keyfile"

19:41 <mweltin> > file.sig

19:41 <nickuwo> ok

19:41 <nickuwo> hmm

19:41 <mweltin> crypt_prog -sign file privatekey > file.sig

19:41 <nickuwo> I used -test_crypt and it printed "out:foobar"

19:41 <nickuwo> wtf?

19:51 <nickuwo> ?

19:51 <mweltin> should look like a typical sig file

19:53 <nickuwo> signature verification error

19:53 <nickuwo> all files

19:54 <mweltin> so you made a new directory signed all the files adn ran update_versions?

19:54 <nickuwo> yea

19:54 <mweltin> or jsut updated the signature

19:54 <nickuwo> new dir, etc.

19:54 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

19:57 <mweltin> well nickuwo I'm not sure whatelse to do.

19:57 <mweltin> that is strange

19:57 <nickuwo> I know... I don't get it.

19:58 <nickuwo> it worked fine with the worker example prog

19:58 <Romulus> thats the only reason why I'm using for my distro

19:58 <mweltin> what are the perms on the keys dir itself?

20:00 <nickuwo> drwxr-xr-x

20:00 <mweltin> and 744 inside?

20:00 <mweltin> or 644 inside

20:00 <nickuwo> I think so, chmod 644 filename right?

20:01 <mweltin> yeah

20:01 <nickuwo> hmm

20:01 <nickuwo> I think I'll send this one to the mailing list

20:01 <nickuwo> :)

20:02 <mweltin> are you making one workunit at a time?

20:02 <mweltin> are tehere a ton of WU's out there.

20:02 <nickuwo> there's always at least 10

20:03 <mweltin> its just a guess buy you many have problems with older workunits may have problems with

20:03 <nickuwo> I deleted all the old workunits before retrying this time...

20:03 <mweltin> cancle all old workunits and

20:03 <mweltin> ahh

20:09 <mweltin> sorry I wasn't more help

20:09 <nickuwo> it's all good, how's yer proj coming?

20:10 <nickuwo> wrapper is still lookin for job.xml as well

20:10 <nickuwo> hmpf

20:10 <mweltin> you named the file job.xml=job_1.5.xml ?

20:11 <nickuwo> yea

20:11 <nickuwo> in apps

20:11 <nickuwo> job.xml=job_5.50.xml

20:11 <mweltin> well apps/appname/appname_version_number ?

20:12 <nickuwo> yea

20:12 <nickuwo> its apps/ramsey/wrapper_5.5_windows_intelx86.exe/job.xml=job_5.50.xml

20:13 <nickuwo> 5.50 that is

20:14 *** cactaur has quit IRC

20:14 <nickuwo> I'm just executing wrapper in a command prompt in windows... does job_5.50.xml get passed as a command line?

20:14 <mweltin> my wrapper is named after the app name.

20:15 <mweltin> boinc deals with that so I'm not sure

20:15 <nickuwo> like /apps/ramsey/ramsey_5.50_windows_intelx86.exe/

20:15 <mweltin> that is how mine is named

20:15 <nickuwo> maybe ill try that

20:15 <mweltin> for example I have a tsp/apps/aco/aco_1.1_i686-pc-linux-gnu

20:15 <nickuwo> even though it's wrapped?

20:16 <mweltin> and the files in there are wrapper is aco_1.1_i686-pc-linux-gnu

20:16 <mweltin> and the real app is named aco=acoAlgo_1.1_i686-pc-linux-gnu

20:16 <nickuwo> hmm

20:16 <mweltin> and of course I have the job.xml=job_1.1.xml

20:16 <nickuwo> yea

20:16 <nickuwo> I'll try that

20:17 <mweltin> everythign worked in the example because it was supposed to be called wrapper, but I don't thing it should be called wrapper for the app.

20:17 <mweltin> I could be wrong, I'm very very new to the wrapper

20:18 <nickuwo> and in job.xml you have aco inside <application>

20:19 <mweltin> yes

20:32 *** cactaur has joined #boinc

20:33 <nickuwo> no dice :(

20:34 <mweltin> you are kidding me.

20:35 <mweltin> same key error?

20:35 <nickuwo> total bummer

20:35 <nickuwo> idk

20:35 <nickuwo> maybe I should start over

20:36 <mweltin> I'd turn off the workgenerator for one thing

20:36 <nickuwo> tried that :)

20:36 <mweltin> just make them one at a time until its working

20:36 <nickuwo> [error] no close tag in scheduler reply ...

20:37 <nickuwo> man, BOINC is hard

20:37 <mweltin> its picky

20:37 <nickuwo> true dat

20:38 <mweltin> I never got that error.

20:38 <mweltin> If Pov were here he would have you straight in 5 imin.

20:38 <mweltin> few understand boinc as well as he

20:38 <nickuwo> :)

20:38 <nickuwo> hopefully the mailing list will have somthing to say about it

20:39 <mweltin> yes they are good, and David Anderson reads that as well.

20:41 <mweltin> ok I have to go now.

20:41 <nickuwo> have a good one

20:41 <nickuwo> thanks :)

20:41 <mweltin> sorry nickuwo that I couldn't help you through it all.

20:42 *** tricaric has joined #boinc

20:45 <tricaric> hi

20:45 <tricaric> I have a teams question

20:46 <tricaric> on orbit, many complain about new teams registered by somebody that is not the original founder...

20:46 <tricaric> how can I fix that, to give priority to BOINC-wide teams?

20:55 <Tank_Master> the BOINC-Wide list should be imported when the project started.  Doing so now may cause duplicate team names

20:56 <Tank_Master> As for the team caption, eith edit it manually, or have them wait the 2 months to the transfer to happen on its own.  If the person who is the founder and shouldnt be, and they block the transfer, then manual intervantion is nessicary on the part of the project admin(s)

20:57 <Tank_Master> This is my current understanding on how this works

20:57 <Tank_Master> but someone else may have a better understanding on the backend and give you other solutions

21:13 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc
