00:21 <MTughan> Hey.
00:21 <mirvk2> why does BOINC mgr need to run as admin
00:22 <KathrynM> howdy
00:22 <MTughan> It doesn't.
00:22 <mirvk2> it kind of pisses me off
00:22 * KathrynM is back (gone 04:13:22)
00:22 <mirvk2> every time i try to run it
00:22 <Wabbit98> wait is the ACO app up?
00:22 <MTughan> Wabbit98: No.
00:22 <mirvk2> it prompts me for admin
00:22 <KathrynM> vista mirvk2 ?
00:22 <MTughan> mirvk2: First, what OS and version?
00:22 <mirvk2> yes
00:22 <mirvk2> vista
00:22 <MTughan> Okay, I was thinking root on Linux...
00:22 <KathrynM> heh
00:23 <MTughan> As for why BOINC would need admin permission, I couldn't tell you that.
00:23 <MTughan> I do BOINC on Mac and Linux, but I'm not a major Windows person.
00:23 <KathrynM> vista suck?
00:23 <KathrynM> *sucks?
00:23 <mirvk2> lol
00:23 <MTughan> Oh, Vista's always sucked.
00:23 <mirvk2> no comment
00:24 <MTughan> XP's better by far.

00:24 <KathrynM> it should be promting for uac, not running as an administrator
00:25 <KathrynM> or you could install as a service and only start the manager when you need to do something
00:25 <mirvk2> yep but im debugging my executable
00:25 <mirvk2> so ..
00:25 <mirvk2> :(
00:26 <mirvk2> oh well thx anyways
00:26 <KathrynM> are you building your own version of boinc?

01:06 <zombie_67> I have a G5 iMac here for a friend that comes over frequently. Sometimes uses it for work. Anyway...it died. Gonna have to take it in.
01:07 <zombie_67> Internally thinking, "Weee! I get to replace it with a C2D iMac!!!"
01:07 <zombie_67> turns out that it was a known flaw with the psu. apple will fix it for free....dangit.
01:10 *** KathrynM has quit IRC
01:13 *** KathrynM has joined #boinc
01:23 *** cactaur has joined #boinc
01:23 <MTughan> Yeah, I thought the same thing when they had to replace the motherboard in my Macbook. But seems they still have Core Duo motherboards around...
01:26 <zombie_67> maybe if I TRY HARDER, I can break it?
01:26 <zombie_67> ;)
01:29 <zombie_67> You know, a stack of 20 mac Minis....not much space or power....
01:30 <MTughan> Renderfarm!
01:36 <zombie_67> that is 20x$600 = $12,000 for 40 cores.
01:36 <zombie_67> I can get a referb dell 8-way for $2k each
01:37 <zombie_67> 5 x $2k = $10k, and much faster than the minis.
01:37 <zombie_67> but much higher power consumption
01:41 <MTughan> How about a $30,000 Mac Pro?
01:41 <MTughan> xD
01:41 <MTughan> Or rather, $9100CDN to upgrade the Mac Pro to 32GB RAM.
01:42 <zombie_67> NEVER pay for apple RAM
01:42 <zombie_67> how many slots again? 8?
01:43 <zombie_67> $3200 for 32gb here: http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/Mac-Pro-Memory
01:44 <MTughan> Yeah, 8 slots. But Apple says they have a more stringent requirement for heat dissipation on their RAM.

02:10 <zombie_67> just thinking of a very compact, low energy farm
02:10 <zombie_67> but it was only 20
02:10 <zombie_67> ;)
02:10 *** zombie_67 has quit IRC
02:10 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc
02:11 <efc> Invest in my FPGA project :)
02:12 <zombie67> I think you told me about that
02:12 <zombie67> you showed me apicture of a large fab covered in chips?
02:15 <efc> Dunno if that was it but similar idea
02:15 <efc> good power numbers on those, probably 100x more power efficient than a p4
02:16 <efc> cost wise i'm not sure it really beats out regular systems by enough
02:18 <zombie67> you saw my numbers. 15-20% cheaper with towers. Probably 30-40% cheaper with rack ervers. cheaper than minis.
02:18 <zombie67> but the power savings over time....
02:19 <zombie67> brb
02:20 <efc> i guess something like a multi socket quad core would be the best..
02:20 <efc> You might save a few more watts running off flash memory
02:22 <Tank_Master> or a flash HD
02:22 <Tank_Master> but those are spendy
02:22 <efc> you can get an ide adapter for compact flash memory
02:22 <Tank_Master> same tieh sata
02:22 <efc> around $10 i think
02:22 <Tank_Master> with*
02:23 <Tank_Master> 10ish, yeah, sounds right
02:23 <Tank_Master> n 20 for a 4gb flash
02:23 <efc> Just to run boinc could do with less..
02:23 <efc> Could run a stripped linux, or NT4 or something like taht
02:24 <Tank_Master> ot XP
02:24 <efc> I've seen NT4 run on like a 16 meg flash disk
02:24 <Tank_Master> or*
02:24 <Tank_Master> nice
02:24 <Tank_Master> I had XP running on a 2GB HD
02:25 <Tank_Master> ran BOINC with no probs
02:25 <Tank_Master> so 4GB flash would be heaven
02:26 <efc> Or, do a netboot. But not many people seem to pull that off.
02:27 <zombie67> yeah, quad or oct way quad core ships
02:27 <zombie67> chips
02:28 <zombie67> but the chips that will go >2 per blade are WAY too expensive
02:28 <Tank_Master> yeah
02:28 <Tank_Master> I want 8way octicore chips!
02:28 <zombie67> I keep eye-balling the 7000 series....
02:28 <Tank_Master> hehe
02:29 <efc> The FPGAs would do great, but its such a huge project
02:29 <zombie67> or the T2 chips...8 core/32 threads....
02:29 <zombie67> GREAT for I/O, but only FPU per core
02:29 <zombie67> so not great for BOINC
02:30 <zombie67> I mean, it would STILL perform as well as any 8-core chip.
02:30 <zombie67> but not like a 32 core chip
02:31 <efc> you have to start killing your memory bandwidth with so many cores..
02:31 <Tank_Master> It will be interesting to see what kind of performance intel's new embeded SPU can do
02:31 <zombie67> GREAT power consumption numbers though
02:31 <Tank_Master> CPU*
02:31 <efc> seti used to bottleneck pretty bad on just a p4, though i think the software has gotten better
02:31 <Tank_Master> it consumes 2-4w on full load
02:31 <Tank_Master> and 11 of the CPUs can fit on a penny
02:31 <zombie67> ROCK....
02:31 <Romulus> lets say you have just one, or are there no ops in this myself though....
02:32 <zombie67> T2 will eventually go 4-way
02:33 <zombie67> Sorry, I was giving you T1 numbers.
02:33 <zombie67> T2 is 8 cores, 8 threads each
02:33 <zombie67> 64 threads
02:33 <Tank_Master> nice
02:33 <zombie67> 64x4 = 256 thread/blade
02:33 <Tank_Master> hehe
02:33 <efc> In what sense is it 8 threads per core?
02:33 <Tank_Master> NOW we are talkin
02:33 <Romulus> Title: UltraSPARC T2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)
02:33 <Tank_Master> think hyperthreading goin extream
02:34 <efc> hyperthreading is not as great as people seem to think..
02:34 <zombie67> but better implementation than pentium HT
02:34 <efc> but'll read that
02:34 <Tank_Master> its better than not being there
02:35 <zombie67> awesome power with T2
02:35 <Romulus> Title: Rock processor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)
02:35 * KathrynM is back (gone 00:34:32)
02:36 <efc> Bad "threading" can be worse than none..
02:36 <zombie67> Each Rock processor chip includes sixteen cores, with each core capable of running two threads simultaneously, yielding 32 threads per chip.
02:36 <efc> It may cause the caches to thrash
02:37 <efc> The Sparcs have had a hardware context switch for 20 years.. wonder if this is the same thing..
02:37 <zombie67> The 16 cores in Rock are arranged in 4 core clusters. Cores in a cluster share an 32KB instruction cache, two 32KB data caches, and two floating point units. Sun designed the chip this way because server workloads usually have high re-utilization in data and instruction across processes and threads but low number of floating-pointing operations in general. Thus sharing hardware resources among the 4 cores in a cluster leads to a sig
02:37 <zombie67> nificant savings in area and power but low impact to performance. 
02:38 <Tank_Master> isnt that IBM's chip?
02:38 <Tank_Master> wb KathrynM
02:38 <zombie67> thinking of PS3?
02:38 <Tank_Master> no
02:38 <KathrynM> thx
02:38 <Romulus> That's part of the aco does as wel
02:38 <Tank_Master> IBM just announed a new 16core chip
02:39 <zombie67> no
02:39 <KathrynM> how before it shows up on seti? :)
02:39 <efc> for reference.. you can get about 100 FPUs onto the latest FPGAs. Ain't cheap though, thousands of dollars.
02:39 <Tank_Master> the CPU is a 5 digit cost
02:39 <efc> some of the Virtex's have around 300 hardware multipliers..
02:40 <zombie67> the best way, as far as I can tell is to use the 2x 5 series xeon, in rack form
02:40 <zombie67> what is that mfgr again..super(something)
02:41 <Tank_Master> micro?
02:41 <Tank_Master> supermicro
02:41 <zombie67> ding!
02:42 <zombie67> they have a 1u server, with two mobos, each taking 2x 5xxx chips
02:42 <Tank_Master> not the 7xxx?
02:42 <Tank_Master> oh wait n/m
02:43 <Tank_Master> 7x is multi CPU
02:43 <zombie67> no, it is two 8-way servers in a 1u form
02:43 <Tank_Master> 5x is dual socket
02:43 <zombie67> right
02:43 <zombie67> so 16 Core 2, er, cores in a 1U form
02:44 <zombie67> picture a rack of 32 of those!
02:44 <Tank_Master> 32?
02:44 <Tank_Master> why not 48?
02:44 <efc> from the numbers I was runnig my board might get into the 50 gflop range, cost $100-200.. might not be much more cost effective than a quad core
02:44 <Tank_Master> hehehe >:)
02:44 <zombie67> gotta put the switches someplace
02:45 <zombie67> ;)

07:26 <sambabasse> j'ai touve, c'Ã©tait ds canaux
07:26 <sambabasse> sorry, bad window
07:26 <sambabasse> thank yu romulus
07:27 <sambabasse> i'am under linux ubuntu gnome
07:27 <sambabasse> How do we do to start boinc automatically ?
07:28 <KathrynM> how did you install boinc?
07:29 <sambabasse> it was the friend, who convert me to linux and boinc, who did that
07:30 <sambabasse> so I don't no
07:30 <KathrynM> how do you run boinc now?
07:31 <sambabasse> He doesn't work yet, I wil try to start it (I'm not so good with linux)
07:31 <KathrynM> I'm not so good either. But definitely learning ;)
07:32 <sambabasse> me too ;)
07:33 <sambabasse> it's by the way usr bin, I have boinc, boinc-client, boinc cmd and boinccmgr
07:33 <sambabasse> I don't what what I should do to lance boinc
07:34 <KathrynM> It sounds like he might have installed it using the package manager.
07:34 <KathrynM> Is there anything in the gnome start menu thing (I don't know what it's called, I use KDE)
07:36 <sambabasse> I don't have the menu because, I don't no how to start boinc with my linux (it start alone with windox xp, but I ant to use linux rather
07:36 <KathrynM> In gnome, there should be an icon you click on that gives you a menu of all the installed programs.
07:36 <KathrynM> See if you can find BOINC in there.
07:38 <sambabasse> I(ve lost the icone when I fall my "tableau de bord" I don't know in english what is it
07:38 <KathrynM> Can you get into the package manager and search for BOINC?
07:41 <sambabasse> I'm bad in computer english, what is the package manager ?
07:42 <KathrynM> It's what you use to install software from the Ubuntu repositories.
07:44 <sambabasse> I should search the package manager ?
07:44 <KathrynM> For me (in Fedora) I can search to see what is installed using the package manager.
07:44 <sambabasse> My friend achieve to run boinc on my linux, but I don't know how he as done
07:45 <KathrynM> it it's in /usr/bin, then it sounds like it was installed from the package manager
07:47 <sambabasse> yes, it is in /usr/bin
07:48 <KathrynM> But I'm not all that familiar with Ubuntu, so I could be off base.
07:48 <KathrynM> Maybe when CoderForLife gets back from breakfast he'll know for sure.
07:50 <sambabasse> OK, thanks

14:58 <PovAddict_> it should be possible
14:58 <PovAddict_> might be easier in a few years when/if I rewrite the whole boinc server in java
15:02 <Rookie_69> Hearts, baby carrots, sugar snap peas, onions, mushrooms, celery, shrimp just cause I had some... all on a bed of wild/long grain rice... I'm drooling.
15:02 *** PovAddict has quit IRC
15:02 *** PovAddict_ is now known as PovAddict
15:12 <nickuwo> haha OK... but if I have work_generator.jar, san I just put that in config.xml... also, does BOINC just call work_generator when there is less than some amount of work, or is it always running when BOINC is running?
15:16 <nickuwo> god my internet is slow today...
15:19 <Rookie_69> Don't blame it on god...
15:20 <nickuwo> I wonderin how god gets on the internet.... T1, ya think?

15:27 <Rookie_69> Rabbit ears... Harvey must be good for something.
15:33 <PovAddict> nickuwo: daemons like work generators are started when you do ./bin/start and killed when you do ./bin/stop
15:34 <Romulus> I got really bad internet this morning too
15:34 <nickuwo> awesome
15:34 <PovAddict> it's up to the work generator to check when there is less than a certain amount of work or whatever
15:34 <nickuwo> ok, will it run a .jar?
15:34 <PovAddict> maybe
15:34 <nickuwo> ok
15:34 <PovAddict> probably better to add the daemon as java -jar myworkgen.jar
15:34 <nickuwo> nice, I'll try that
15:36 <nickuwo> hmm, gonna be interesting calling those boinc_db.h methods...
15:36 <nickuwo> maybe I'll just learn c++ :)
15:37 <nickuwo> should anyway
15:40 *** HeXiLeD has quit IRC
15:49 <MTughan> nickuwo: You could make another program in C++ to make those calls.
15:49 <MTughan> Although I think there is an interface to call C++ methods from Java...
15:49 <PovAddict> yeah have fun with JNI
15:50 <MTughan> That's it.
15:50 <PovAddict> you can't call C++ methods; you need to make functions with a specific signature that call the C++ methods, and call those from Java
16:07 *** DannyCooper has joined #boinc
16:09 <PovAddict> hey DannyCooper
16:09 <DannyCooper> yea?
16:10 <PovAddict> I'm Nicolas from the mailing list
16:10 <DannyCooper> ah ok
16:11 <DannyCooper> so what should I do?
16:11 <PovAddict> so... you have BOINC code
16:11 <Romulus> they said they would share the same name as the leading power in the result file to find another station.
16:11 <PovAddict> and ./_autosetup says configure.ac doesn't even exist?
16:12 <PovAddict> ugh
16:12 <PovAddict> somebody shut up the bot... lol
16:12 <DannyCooper> right
16:12 <PovAddict> and the .ac does exist, right?
16:12 <DannyCooper> yep
16:13 <PovAddict> autoconf --version
16:13 <DannyCooper> 2.61
16:14 <PovAddict> do you have 'configure', 'configure.in', and/or 'Makefile'?
16:15 <DannyCooper> makefile.am and .incl
16:15 <PovAddict> okay
16:15 <PovAddict> one step at a time
16:15 <PovAddict> try: aclocal -I m4
16:15 <PovAddict> and see if it gives any error
16:16 <DannyCooper> says configure.ac required
16:16 *** efc has joined #boinc

16:21 <DannyCooper> i know, but it's in the boinc folder
16:21 <PovAddict> you have a 'boinc' folder inside another...?
16:22 <DannyCooper> it's just in the user's home
16:22 <DannyCooper> i didn't move it after the svn
16:22 <PovAddict> you seem to have BOINC directories and your own home files all mixed up...?
16:23 <DannyCooper> i don't think so, like i said, i didn't move anything around
16:24 <PovAddict> well, Videos looks like your own folder
16:24 <DannyCooper> boinc just went into the user's folder and i've been running things frrom it
16:24 <PovAddict> and zip, test, tools, sched, sea, etc. is from BOINC code
16:25 <DannyCooper> yea, that's where they are
16:25 <PovAddict> then what's inside ./boinc there?
16:26 <DannyCooper> that's the folder i got from the svn
16:26 <PovAddict> well you should cd boinc; and do your stuff from there
16:27 <DannyCooper> ok one sec
16:29 <DannyCooper> now it says that _autosetup doesn't exist, but it showed up on 'ls -l'
16:29 <PovAddict> hmm
16:29 <PovAddict> put a ls -l on pastebin again
16:29 <PovAddict> and include your shell prompt so I see where you are
16:30 <DannyCooper> of cd ./boinc ?
16:30 <PovAddict> yeah
16:31 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at pastebin.com)
16:31 <PovAddict> ./_autosetup
16:31 <PovAddict> you need ./ to run stuff on the current directory :)
16:31 <DannyCooper> ah so
16:32 <DannyCooper> forgot that part, sorry
16:32 <DannyCooper> alright now it says for me to run configure
16:32 <DannyCooper> awesome
16:34 <DannyCooper> one quick question, what's the version of MySQL that works best for BOINC server?
16:35 <PovAddict> the docs say 4.0.9 or higher
16:35 <PovAddict> I'd recommend 5.something
16:35 <PovAddict> but I don't know much 'bout databases
16:36 *** PovAddict_ has joined #boinc

16:37 <PovAddict> it was time already... I had gone like half an hour without my connection breaking...
16:37 <PovAddict> *sigh*
16:37 <DannyCooper> i was trying to install it but it said that it need a massive amount of dependencies
16:37 <DannyCooper> lol
16:37 <PovAddict> you need --disable-client when configuring
16:37 <Romulus> adds to the side
16:38 <DannyCooper> yea, that's why i asked about MySQL; that's what i was installing, it needs all sorts of library files
16:39 <PovAddict> libmysqlclient?
16:39 <DannyCooper> among others
16:39 <DannyCooper> do you know if BOINC requires the full version of MySQL, or would the community (free) one work?
16:40 <PovAddict> I don't think anyone has the paid version
16:40 <PovAddict> they're actually quite the same...
16:40 <DannyCooper> ok
16:40 <PovAddict> the paid version gets you somewhat-newer code and technical support
16:41 <DannyCooper> oh ok
16:42 <DannyCooper> is there a way to check the RPM version so I know just what MySQL to get?
16:42 * PovAddict knows nothing about rpms or fedora's yum
16:42 <PovAddict> do you have mysql server already?
16:43 <DannyCooper> nope
16:43 <DannyCooper> that's why i'm downloading it
16:43 <PovAddict> ie. are you missing just the libmysqlclient or the whole server too?
16:43 <DannyCooper> whole thing
16:43 <PovAddict> I think it would be better to install it using yum than using mysql website
16:44 <DannyCooper> yea that'd probably be a good idea
16:44 <DannyCooper> is there a way to run a terminal as root while logged in as another user?
16:45 <nickuwo> su
16:45 <PovAddict> try: sudo <command you want to run as root>
16:45 <PovAddict> like
16:46 <DannyCooper> thanks
16:46 <PovAddict> sudo yum install mysql-server
16:46 <PovAddict> if sudo doesn't work, use 'su' to get a root shell
16:46 <DannyCooper> i used su and it worked
16:48 <DannyCooper> ok one more problem
16:48 <DannyCooper> i swear
16:48 <nickuwo> just be sure to 'exit' when your done
16:49 <DannyCooper> i did
16:50 <DannyCooper> i ran configure and it says i need "development libraries and headers" for openGL, where can i get those?
16:50 *** PovAddict has quit IRC
16:50 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc
16:51 <nickuwo> I think you only need openGL if your developing a client that uses graphics...
16:51 <nickuwo> anyway you can get them in yum or apt like mysql
16:52 <nickuwo> i think (POV knows for sure)
16:52 <PovAddict> you don't need opengl libs
16:52 <DannyCooper> i ran configure with -disable-client and it said that i needed them
16:52 <PovAddict> can anyone pastebin the last few messages?

18:11 <PovAddict> </pun>
18:11 <PovAddict> what exactly doesn't work? :)
18:11 <ilovegizmos> i was trying to run example_app
18:12 <ilovegizmos> it says i need more g++ and c++ libraries
18:12 <ilovegizmos> but I installed them
18:14 <ilovegizmos> specifically it says i need libstdc++.a
18:15 <ilovegizmos> i tried to yum it and the g++ ones but it says they're already installed

18:17 <MTughan> ilovegizmos: Are you able to compile other programs?
18:19 <ilovegizmos> none of the other samples no
18:19 <MTughan> Not samples. Any other C++ programs.
18:20 <MTughan> Doesn't matter if it's related to BOINC or not.
18:20 <ilovegizmos> haven't tried
18:20 <PovAddict> read it carefully... :)
18:20 <MTughan> Because libstdc++ is the C++ library/
18:20 <MTughan> PovAddict: lol, but not helping.
18:21 <PovAddict> oh I was supposed to help? I'm just reading this site
18:21 <ilovegizmos> lol
18:21 <MTughan> GCC can't find libstdc++.
18:21 <MTughan> ilovegizmos: Are there Makefiles for the samples? I don't remember.
18:21 <ilovegizmos> yea
18:21 <MTughan> Open one up, look for "gcc".
18:22 <MTughan> Should be under a variable called CC.
18:22 <ilovegizmos> doesn't appear to be one
18:22 <ilovegizmos> at least in the one i'm trying to run
18:23 <MTughan> Oh... I just opened up the Makefile from example_app, and it says to softlink libstdc++.a.
18:23 <MTughan> ln -s $(g++ -print-file-name=libstdc++.a)
18:24 <MTughan> Do that in the folder where you're trying to build.

18:24 <MTughan> Or it may have just been his client pinging out...
18:24 <wdsmia_> both
18:24 <ilovegizmos> i did the soft link
18:25 *** wdsmia has quit IRC
18:25 <MTughan> ilovegizmos: You did it just now, or you did it before?
18:25 <ilovegizmos> both
18:25 *** wdsmia_ is now known as wdsmia
18:25 <ilovegizmos> but before i had typed it wrong :(
18:25 <MTughan> It said to use backticks?
18:25 <ilovegizmos> yea
18:25 <MTughan> Means you're fine, both work...
18:25 <ilovegizmos> oh well
18:26 <MTughan> ls -l
18:26 <ilovegizmos> now i have a pile of graphics errors
18:26 <MTughan> See if the link has a destination.
18:26 <PovAddict> disable gfx
18:26 <MTughan> Wait, no libstdc++ errors?
18:26 <ilovegizmos> not this time
18:26 <ilovegizmos> soft link worked
18:26 <MTughan> Okay, good.
18:27 <ilovegizmos> and like I said, now i have graphics problems it seems
18:29 <MTughan> What one are you trying?
18:30 <ilovegizmos> trying to run make for example_app
18:30 <PovAddict> make uc2
18:30 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC
18:31 <PovAddict> if you run just 'make' it will build uc2 and uc2_graphics
18:31 <PovAddict> 'make uc2' will build just the non-gfx one
18:31 <MTughan> Even with that, I get an error... With X11 it seems.
18:31 <MTughan> ld: in /usr/X11R6/lib, can't map file, errno=22
18:32 <PovAddict> look at the makefile code... it doesn't even have -lX11 if you compile uc2
18:32 <ilovegizmos> in the boinc_samples uc folder I have, there's a readme that says it won't build
18:32 <MTughan> -L /usr/X11R6/lib
18:32 <PovAddict> ilovegizmos: example_app is uppercase2
18:32 <PovAddict> uppercase won't build, right
18:33 <ilovegizmos> oh ok
18:33 <ilovegizmos> well taht's what i'm running
18:33 <ilovegizmos> or trying to
18:33 *** PovAddict_ has joined #boinc
18:33 <ilovegizmos> i did 'make uc2' and it said 'uc2' is up to date
18:34 <PovAddict_> then it's already compiled and should even work
18:34 *** PovAddict has quit IRC
18:34 *** PovAddict_ is now known as PovAddict
18:34 <ilovegizmos> ok so then its a matter of running it from a client
18:34 <ilovegizmos> ?
18:34 <PovAddict> yep
18:34 <MTughan> Oops... It won't build anyway, because my BOINC libraries are compiled for x86_64 from building that core client. xD
18:34 <PovAddict> you can run it standalone too
18:35 <PovAddict> just ./uc2
18:36 <ilovegizmos> awesome
18:36 <ilovegizmos> thanks guys
18:36 <PovAddict> MTughan: in the end I got eclipse to see my mingw
18:37 <PovAddict> it gives an error "the toolchain is unsupported on this system"
18:37 *** ilovegizmos has quit IRC
18:37 <PovAddict> followed by "*attempting* to build"

18:38 <MTughan> So basically an IDE for MinGW?
18:39 * Rookie_69 is eating Bill Cosby's "The Chicken Heart that ate New York City".
18:39 <PovAddict> nope, it's an IDE for any gcc you configure correctly
18:39 <MTughan> Cool. You might want to try Dev-C++ too.
18:39 <PovAddict> Dev-C++ is what I used to start learning C++...
18:40 <PovAddict> I got tired of having a null pointer exception each time I did code completion, and a dozen other quirks
18:40 <MTughan> rofl
18:41 <MTughan> I'll stick with Xcode myself.
18:41 <PovAddict> I would if I had a mac
18:41 <MTughan> You could take your dad up on his offer.
18:42 <PovAddict> buy me one? :)
18:42 <MTughan> I won't. I thought your dad would though.
18:43 <MTughan> I know you can program for Mac in C++. Don't know why you wouldn't be able to do the same for the iPhone/iPod touch.
18:43 <MTughan> How about iP/iPt?
18:44 <PovAddict> what do you mean?
18:44 <PovAddict> without Obj-C?
18:44 <MTughan> I think you should be able to program in C++ for the iP/iPt.
18:44 <MTughan> You can for OS X.
18:44 <Romulus> it should be nothing more than automated (:
18:44 <MTughan> You've heard of Carbon?
18:45 <PovAddict> I really doubt there is Carbon or similar for the iPhone
18:45 <MTughan> Well, you can do command line apps in C++.
18:45 <PovAddict> sure I can, and have
18:45 <PovAddict> I have a povray binary compiled for the iPod touch, which would run if it wasn't that the compiler doesn't support C++ exceptions
18:45 <MTughan> Good point.
18:47 <PovAddict> well, looks like I got Eclipse to even read my primegrid screensaver makefile
18:47 <PovAddict> the project explorer shows craploads of files, which gets annoying
18:47 <PovAddict> all the .o files and temporary files from autotools
18:49 <PovAddict> got it to hide them
18:55 <PovAddict> at first sight
18:55 <PovAddict> seems better than gvim + typing make on a shell
18:55 <PovAddict> I should try out the debugger and stuff
18:58 <PovAddict> and mom is making pizza \o/
19:00 <MTughan> Nice.
19:01 * PovAddict pizza ->
19:03 <MTughan> Bye.
19:14 <nickuwo> let's say I have some c++ class named mpz_class and I want to instantiate it with value "1". is it the same as java? e.g mpz_class one = new mpz_class("1");
19:17 *** siofwolves has quit IRC
19:31 <PovAddict> yes, if you have a constructor taking a char* as argument
19:31 <PovAddict> or maybe (better) a const char*
19:33 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc
19:33 <PovAddict> wait no
19:33 <PovAddict> with new, you get a pointer
19:33 <PovAddict> mpz_class* one = new mpz_class("1");
19:33 <nickuwo> hmm, it's bitchin about somthing - i did it like 'mpz_class one = mpz_class::__gmp_expr("1");' and it worked... why is that?
19:33 <nickuwo> oh ok
19:33 <PovAddict> or mpz_class one("1"); if you don't want to use the heap
19:34 <nickuwo> c++ lets you choose if you want something in the heap?
19:34 <nickuwo> crazy!
19:35 <PovAddict> only 'new' allocates memory in the heap
19:35 <nickuwo> otherwise it goes where? stack?
19:36 <PovAddict> yeah
19:36 <nickuwo> gotchya
19:36 <PovAddict> and gets freed when the function/method ends
19:36 <PovAddict> if you use new, you have to explicitly free it with delete
19:36 <PovAddict> or leak memory
19:37 <nickuwo> interesting
19:37 <nickuwo> That's why they teach us java :)
19:38 <PovAddict> well you'll like comparing strings with == instead of .equals :)
19:39 <PovAddict> OMG I got pirates work!
19:41 <PovAddict> but all it does is show "UNITED FEDERATION OF PLANETS"
19:41 <PovAddict> oh wait, it switches between graphic apps...
19:42 <nickuwo> whats the diff btw #include <boinc_db.h> and #include "boinc_db.h"?
19:47 <PovAddict> "The use of the angle brackets (< and >) around the header's name indicate that the header file is to be looked for on the system disk which stores the rest of the C program application."
19:47 <PovAddict> "The double quotes indicate that the current working directory should be searched for the required header file. This will be true when you write your own header files but the standard header files should always have the angle brackets around them."
19:47 <nickuwo> spose I coulda looked that one up :)
19:48 <Tank_Master> lol
19:48 <nickuwo> thx tho
19:49 <nickuwo> havin linker probs now...
19:50 <nickuwo> I hope someone pays you to answer all these questions Pov
19:52 <PovAddict> i wont complain if you do
19:53 <nickuwo> If I wasn't a poor college student I would...
19:54 * KathrynM is back (gone 10:10:24)
19:56 <nickuwo> do you have experience making work generators pov, and if so, I'm using eclipse, and I have it the sample_work_generator compiles, but the linker complains about undefined references, specifically DB_BASE, DB_WORKUNIT and DB_APP, aren't those in boinc_db.h?
19:56 <PovAddict> my work generator is a shell script that runs create_work command-line tool
19:57 <nickuwo> i c
19:57 <nickuwo> how does it know when to make more?
19:58 <PovAddict> it's not on the daemon list
19:58 <PovAddict> I run it manually when I want work
19:58 <nickuwo> ok
19:58 <Romulus> Wait, no libstdc++ errors?
19:59 <MTughan> He must be getting short on markovs...
20:00 <PovAddict> <gopi> So has anybody figured out about what sort of security model, if anything, is present in the SDK / iPhone 2.0?
20:00 <PovAddict> <gopi> It is just, "Steve calls your parents if your app trashes people's iPhones?"
20:00 <PovAddict> <PovAddict> lol
20:00 <PovAddict> <gopi> Microsoft tried that security model with ActiveX.
20:00 <PovAddict> <PovAddict> didn't quite work

20:26 *** PovAddict_ is now known as PovAddict
20:26 <PovAddict> there's people running multiple projects and comparing runtimes
20:26 <PovAddict> for "project cooperation"
20:27 <KathrynM> huh?
20:27 <PovAddict> for example, running two units of project A on a dualcore may be slower than one A and one B, if project A moves a lot of memory around
20:27 <PovAddict> memory becomes a bottleneck
20:27 <KathrynM> oh
20:27 <KathrynM> wasn't there something a while back about seti and einstein?
20:27 <PovAddict> that's what I'm reading
20:28 <KathrynM> lol
20:32 <efc> seti used to have very high memory bandwidth, not sure if thats changed
20:33 <efc> Btw, there's an FFT algorithm that minimizes it, at the expense of some more multiplications
20:33 <Wabbit98> I run multiple projects and have no clue what project cooperation is
20:36 <KathrynM> I dunno... project cooperation is a bit too much micromanaging for my tastes
20:36 <KathrynM> not that I've ever micromanaged BOINC.............
20:36 <PovAddict> suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure
20:36 * KathrynM looks around innocently
20:37 <PovAddict> omg... how evil...
20:37 <efc> I wish I could manage it into fetching a bit more work.. but it seems to ignore my settings
20:37 <PovAddict> somebody added an app called "Magenta" into the "Productivity" section of the iPod installer
20:37 <PovAddict> you open it, and there is something like a magenta ball with a face
20:37 <PovAddict> but doesn't seem to do anything...
20:37 <Wabbit98> PrimeGrid is awful at project cooperaztion
20:37 <PovAddict> there is an "about" button on top
20:37 <Romulus> this it downt goback into the wu?
20:37 <PovAddict> so you tap it
20:37 <PovAddict> and the button moves
20:38 <PovAddict> runs away from you
20:38 <KathrynM> lol
20:38 <KathrynM> definitely productive3
20:38 <PovAddict> the biggest evil is the category...
20:38 <PovAddict> so then you tap Contact
20:38 <PovAddict> and the button falls down
20:38 <KathrynM> lol'
20:38 * KathrynM wants
20:38 <PovAddict> then it converts into a... FISH
20:38 <KathrynM> that's freaking awesome
20:39 <PovAddict> oh the contact button not only falls
20:39 <MTughan> Wow... I suspend BOINC on my laptop, and both cores stay at 100%.
20:39 <PovAddict> it also follows the accelerometer... turn the iPod upside down and it falls to the other side
20:39 <MTughan> iMovie rendering some stuff and VMware installing an OS.

20:45 <KathrynM> figures
20:45 <PovAddict> I reinstalled, and now it's not only not working, but my workaround doesn't work either
20:45 <Wabbit98> if someone fixed it wrong was it really fixed>?
20:45 <KathrynM> isn't that how things in boinc get fixed Wabbit98?
20:45 <PovAddict> erm

20:47 <MTughan> File paths?
20:47 <PovAddict> ahem
20:48 <PovAddict> didn't you once "rm -f bin /*" instead of "rm -f bin/*" and deleted your kernel?
20:48 <MTughan> And have I done it again?
20:48 <PovAddict> :)
20:48 <KathrynM> PovAddict, like rm -rf * .o vs rm -rf *.o
20:48 <PovAddict> all I meant is shit happens
20:48 <wdsmia> asks PovAddict to please watch his or her language… Thanks, your friendly channel op.
20:49 <PovAddict> sure once it happens you make sure it doesn't happen again
20:49 <PovAddict> and I'm sure this guy made this other guy make sure he doesn't get the freaking slash wrong again

23:37 <MTughan> The admin of the project might be able to, but you can't.
23:38 <HeXiLeD> ithe admin of the group ? or rosetta ?
23:38 <Soul_keeper> wasn't ATX supposed to be dead by now ?
23:39 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: ATX form?
23:39 <MTughan> Or ATX PSUs?
23:39 <Soul_keeper> form factor
23:40 <MTughan> Since when? I didn't hear about that...
23:40 <Soul_keeper> intel/amd have been talking about replacements for years now
23:40 <MTughan> Huh.
23:40 <Soul_keeper> just none of them have caught on ...
23:40 <Soul_keeper> btx and others ...
23:41 <MTughan> BTX apparently is standard for big computer makers, but parts you buy yourself are still ATX.
23:41 <Romulus> Title: ATX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)
23:41 <MTughan> First paragraph.
23:42 <Soul_keeper> yeah i know what the stuff is, i just wanted to start conversation ...
23:42 <Soul_keeper> nm
23:42 <Wabbit98> Soul feels lonely
23:42 <Wabbit98> group hug
23:42 <MTughan> Heh. Maybe we could talk about the ups and downs of ATX and its replacements.
23:43 <Soul_keeper> well i'm looking to buy a computer case
23:43 <Soul_keeper> but they are pretty expensive, essentially the most expensive component
23:43 <MTughan> Not even the CPU?
23:43 <mweltin> and why doesn't two_credit function work? I.e. why does the compiler say its not there.
23:44 <Soul_keeper> yeah cpu's are cheap, i don't buy the most expensive ones ...
23:44 <MTughan> Ah. I'm looking at a C2Q, that's why.
23:44 <MTughan> I don't know too much about cases. I've only ever got one, but I love it.
23:44 <Soul_keeper> i got the slowest c2d they made
23:45 <Soul_keeper> considering that one
23:45 <MTughan> From Lian-Li. http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/contact_us/index1.php
23:45 <Soul_keeper> how much did you pay for yours ?
23:45 <MTughan> Good question. That was 3.5 years ago.
23:46 <MTughan> And I think I actually got it as a gift.
23:46 <Romulus> you should have used the wrong word. more like it hasn't been ruled out
23:46 <Soul_keeper> lian-li is pretty much one of the most expensive ones
23:46 <Wabbit98> mw you are not in your own chan
23:46 *** nickuwo has joined #BOINC
23:47 <MTughan> I can give you the model number.
23:47 <MTughan> nickuwo: mweltin's here.
23:47 <Soul_keeper> my last case was antec, so naturally i am looking at them again
23:47 <mweltin> I was looking for boinc help
23:47 <Wabbit98> ah
23:47 <mweltin> but everyone here ignores me anyway
23:47 <nickuwo> ey mweltin
23:47 <Wabbit98> heheh
23:47 <MTughan> Cool. For my upgrade, I'm just sticking with my current case.
23:47 <mweltin> nickuwo how goes it?
23:47 <Wabbit98> except nickuwo, he keeps asking after you
23:47 <nickuwo> pretty good u?
23:47 <mweltin> did you get your sig thing worked out?
23:47 <mweltin> was it client side?
23:48 <nickuwo> yea, no, I reinstalled BOINC and everything worked! It was sweet
23:48 <nickuwo> anyway, r u working on a work generator?
23:48 <mweltin> a full reinstall my not be that easy next time.
23:48 <mweltin> Validator
23:48 <nickuwo> mmmm
23:49 <mweltin> as I recall I went through 5 or 6 rebuilds.
23:49 <nickuwo> your writing it in c++?
23:49 <mweltin> yeah
23:49 <nickuwo> I'm having problems linking my compiled work_generator...
23:50 <mweltin> what is missing?
23:51 <nickuwo> the compiler can find all the methods in boinc_db.h, but my linker can't
23:51 <MTughan> Using gcc, g++?
23:51 <nickuwo> g++
23:51 <nickuwo> in eclipse
23:51 <MTughan> You're linking in the library?
23:51 <nickuwo> I tried -I
23:51 <nickuwo> not sure
23:51 <MTughan> No, you'll need -lboinc -lboinc_api I would think.
23:52 <nickuwo> hmm
23:52 <MTughan> Not sure what it is for the server components, but that's how you link in a library.
23:52 <MTughan> -lboinc would link in libboinc.(a, so, dylib)
23:53 <nickuwo> hmm, so I can put a library search path...
23:53 <mweltin> yeah -I is or includes dirs and -L is for library dirs
23:53 <nickuwo> so like just -L <path to boinc_db.h>
23:54 <MTughan> Nope... Unless the library you want to link in is in the same dir as boinc_db.h.
23:54 <mweltin> -L$(BOINCSRCDIR)/lib and /sched
23:54 <nickuwo> nice... brb
23:55 <mweltin> and you will need -lboinc adn -lsched
23:55 <nickuwo> I think I got those, cause my compiler is working
23:56 <MTughan> Ah, so libboinc and libsched...
23:56 <nickuwo> ok
23:57 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at pastebin.com)
23:57 <mweltin> it has a lot of stuff you don't need but look at anything boinc related
23:58 <MTughan> mweltin: Also, the standard for GCC flags is CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS, depending on the language being compiled.
23:58 <nickuwo> awesome, thnx
23:58 <mweltin> like I don't have enough trouble as it is, your are now the GNU police :)
23:59 <MTughan> That's not GNU.
