07:14 <hawmps> very nice... water warm enough yet?

07:15 <ELGono> well i don't like the sea that much, i prefer one of the thousands little lakes there

07:15 <ELGono> looking forward to do some fishing

07:15 <hawmps> ah..

07:16 <ELGono> but i'm pretty sure heidi wants a day at seaside, too ;)

11:31 <DerMeister> Didactylos: filesys.C of synecdoche doesn't compile on Linux since r56 ("path" undefined in line 702)

11:32 <PovAdct_w> did you try r55 to confirm problem was introduced in r56?

11:32 <Didactylos> No, it's my fault.

11:33 <PovAdct_w> looks like I have my downstream bandwidth overloaded, google code not loading the diff

11:33 <PovAdct_w> ah I see what you broke :)

11:34 <DerMeister> PovAdct_w: I manually reverted part of the change and it works now... was quite obvious :)

11:34 <PovAdct_w> path only used on Unix

11:34 <Didactylos> Checked in a correction.

11:35 <Didactylos> revert, update.

11:35 *** [B^S]renemayer has joined #boinc

11:36 <DerMeister> thanks, it works now

11:36 <Didactylos> Sorry! Had to check the non-Windows parts visually. Missed it.

11:39 <PovAdct_w> my head asplode

11:40 <PovAdct_w> "How about doing migration only if the source directory is named 'BOINC'?"

11:44 <Didactylos> Better a few people don't migrate properly than a few people have their computers destroyed, no?

11:45 <Didactylos> I didn't really expect them to fix the problem properly.

11:45 <PovAdct_w> well, sure...

11:47 <Didactylos> Should I update wxwidgets today?

11:47 <Didactylos> Hmm.

12:36 <Didactylos> Is anyone else interested in joining Synecdoche?

12:38 <Didactylos> You don't need to be a member to open new issues, but you do if you want to do code review.

12:40 <Didactylos> Google code has some nifty features for QA and code review.

12:40 <Didactylos> (Yes, I can't believe Trac finishes with a bug as soon as it's marked fixed - no verification or review at all)

12:41 <PovAdct_w> you need to update the component list for GCode issues

12:59 <Didactylos> How can the manager component be broken down? I've noticed BOINC has loads of stuff in that category.

12:59 <PovAdct_w> Trac has just manager and manager-localization

13:00 <PovAdct_w> have a separate category for "simple GUI"?

13:06 <Didactylos> Hmm. There's a lot of overlap.

13:06 <Didactylos> But elGoog allows any number of labels.

13:17 <Didactylos> I have added/altered a few. Ask if you need more.

13:35 <Romulus> Title: Ubuntu Pastebin (at

13:36 <Didactylos> Ubuntu broke their BOINC package again?

13:36 <Didactylos> Damn.

13:37 <EagleScreen> not

13:37 <EagleScreen> it only happens in Debian

13:37 <EagleScreen> and it is not quiestion about broken packages

13:37 <Didactylos>

13:37 <Romulus> <> (at

13:37 <Didactylos> Try the second resolution on that page.

13:38 <Didactylos> s/Ubuntu/Debian/

13:39 <Didactylos> Yes, it's a broken package. It's a pre-release version.

13:40 <Didactylos> This is the second report I have seen recently.

13:40 <Didactylos> Forgive my irritation - they manage to break this particular feature every time they release a new package.

13:41 <EagleScreen> then you saying that is a openssl problem?

13:43 <EagleScreen> i think i have to install curl package

13:44 <Didactylos> The BOINC package should have a dependency on curl with openSSL support.

13:44 <Didactylos> Usually, this error just means BOINC can't find the CA file.

13:45 <Didactylos> Normally this is packaged with BOINC, but since it also comes with curl, the Debian packagers remove it.

13:45 <Didactylos> I haven't examined this latest package, so I can't tell you *exactly* how it is broken.

13:46 <Didactylos> If curl was missing, you would get a different error.

15:56 *** Guiri has joined #boinc

15:57 <Guiri> Hi everyone. I tried installing the boinc_client on ubuntu. it appears to run, and --show-projects affirms that it thinks it's connected to setiathome

15:57 <Guiri> but it's not listed in my computers on my account

16:01 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:02 <PovAddict> Guiri: are you logged in on SETI?

16:04 <Guiri> PovAddict: I'm currently logged in, and use it with 2 other computers. but this is the first linux client I've setup

16:04 <PovAddict> run this: boinc_cmd --get_project_status

16:04 <Guiri> ps -ax | grep boinc confirms that it's running

16:05 <Guiri> Authorization failure: -155

16:05 <Guiri> for yoru command PovAddict`

16:05 <PovAddict> bah

16:05 <PovAddict> I thought on Ubuntu it doesn't have a password by default...

16:06 <Guiri> yeah, I couldn't really find any ubuntu specific documentation on boinc in their community docs section

16:07 <PovAddict> that's because BOINC developers didn't make the ubuntu package

16:07 <Guiri> ah. hence the problem.

16:10 <Franki> Buenas noches, me voy a dormir

16:10 <Guiri> PovAddict: where do I start to troubleshoot? everyone knows how useless the #ubuntu room is

16:10 <Guiri> ciao

16:10 *** Franki has left #boinc

16:10 <PovAddict> do you have a /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg?

16:11 <Guiri> ineed

16:11 <Guiri> nothing in it though

16:11 <Guiri> blank file

16:11 <quail> Guiri: where you get your copy of boinc from?

16:11 <PovAddict> then I don't see why it gave auth failure :/

16:11 <Guiri> quail: ubuntu repository

16:12 <PovAddict> try restarting the BOINC client

16:12 <quail> Guiri: ah, I don't use that version

16:12 <PovAddict> sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client restart

16:12 <Guiri> done PovAddict

16:12 <PovAddict> try boinc_cmd again

16:12 * quail manually installs boinc as I use optimised clients

16:12 <Guiri> Authorization failure: -155

16:13 <Guiri> for get project status, anyway

16:13 <PovAddict> did you ever install BOINC from a different place?

16:13 <PovAddict> like the official binaries from boinc website

16:13 <quail> PovAddict: howdy, I love the development version of boinc manager

16:13 <Guiri> possibly. I haven't played with this machine in a few months

16:13 <Guiri> ah

16:13 <Guiri> PovAddict:

16:13 <Guiri> had that gui file in my home directory

16:14 <Guiri> delted it

16:14 <Guiri> and now I can get project status

16:14 <Guiri> and it lists 0 projects

16:14 <PovAddict> ah, probably boinc_cmd was reading that file and trying to use it as password; but it's the wrong password

16:14 <PovAddict> (the correct one the client expects is an empty password)

16:14 <Guiri> alright so now that cmd works

16:14 <Guiri> I can attach seti??

16:14 <dizzie> Evening all :)

16:15 <quail> PovAddict: it makes it lot easier to suspend tasks to let the ones that have to be returned in a couple days to run

16:15 <PovAddict> Guiri: yes, easiest if you run "boincmgr"

16:16 <PovAddict> (and immediately change to Advanced View so you don't lose your sanity on the horrible Simple GUI)

16:16 <Guiri> PovAddict: that requires an X server right?

16:16 <Guiri> I'm connected via ssh

16:16 <PovAddict> yes, I assumed you had one ^^

16:16 <Guiri> I think I attached it bia boinc_cmd

16:16 <PovAddict> okay, then...

16:16 <Guiri> it lists it finally

16:16 <Didactylos> I'm debugging the simple view now.

16:17 <Guiri> although it doesn't list my username or team for some reason

16:17 <PovAddict> Guiri: it shows in project status?

16:17 <Didactylos> I think I may jump out of the window....

16:17 <PovAddict> Guiri: maybe it didn't contact the server yet so it doesn't know your team etc. just wait a few seconds

16:17 <PovAddict> Didactylos: ah have fun

16:17 <PovAddict> (yeah right)

16:18 <Guiri> PovAddict: this will use my config from the project right? e.g. run when idle

16:18 <PovAddict> yes

16:19 <PovAddict> ugh... the almost-impossible task of logging in to Google Code while not letting Google track everything I do from now till 2018

16:21 <Guiri> PovAddict: thanks. it appears to be working. quail what were you saying about the optimized clients? how difficult are they to install and what's the use? Couldn't I just compile with my SSE2 and SSSE flags, cache64, etc.?

16:22 <quail> optimised clients just allow you to do work units faster

16:22 <PovAddict> it's not BOINC but SETI@Home app

16:24 <Guiri> Ah.. So what's the deal with Folding@Home? It's associated with BOINC but they won't release their snazzy PS3 or GPU source code?

16:24 * quail goes through 200 seti wu's in ~ 2 days on my e8200 cpu

16:24 <PovAddict> Folding@Home doesn't use BOINC

16:25 <Guiri> ah. I hear a lot about them;

16:26 <quail> PovAddict: this how my e8200 going >>>

16:26 <quail> I just picked up another 200 WU's this morning

16:29 <Guiri> quail: I only go through about 350 avg. credit with my dual 2.8 P4!

16:30 <CoderForLife> greetings carbon-based life forms

16:30 <quail> Guiri: with optimised seti client I am doing 2 WU's in ~45 mins

16:30 <xcamel> my winbox blew up about 50 wu's for some reason today..

16:30 <CoderForLife> hello quail PovAddict Guiri xcamel

16:30 <quail> greetings CoderForLife

16:31 <quail> CoderForLife: how are you Don?

16:31 <CoderForLife> Happy Independence Day tomorrow xcamel

16:31 <xcamel> thanks

16:31 <xcamel> opera 9.51 released..

16:31 <CoderForLife> I am OK quail - how are things down under?

16:32 <quail> firefox made it in to the guinness book of records for the most downloads in one day

16:32 <Guiri> 9.51 is running great here

16:32 <quail> CoderForLife: this morning I am good and my tummy is full :-)

16:33 <CoderForLife> can't beat that combination

16:33 * quail had 3 toasted ham, tomato, and cheese toasties for breakfast this morning

16:34 <quail> CoderForLife: :-)

16:35 <xcamel> looks like a fubar with mail/chat though - could not init....

16:35 <quail> all I need to make the morning better is another coffee or 2 and a shower

16:36 * quail still has plenty of time as it only bit after 0600 hrs here

16:37 * CoderForLife looks at another weather radar blob

16:38 *** DerMeister has joined #boinc

16:39 <xcamel> ah.. that was an easy fix..

16:42 <xcamel> even got my old 'skin' back

16:43 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

16:48 * quail is back

17:07 <CoderForLife> the defaults for sendmail on ubuntu are bizarre - no wonder everyone here was voting for exim and postfix - sendmail stands very little chance of working securely or for a multi-domain system OOTB

17:08 <quail> exim4 rocks CoderForLife

17:08 <CoderForLife> nah

17:08 <CoderForLife> I have 5 e-mail domains and 350+ users

17:09 <CoderForLife> I need something more than a toy MTA

17:09 <CoderForLife> plus I want to run my very very nice greylist milter

17:10 <CoderForLife> the debian sendmail default settings sux

17:11 * quail not going to get into a debate about which is better exim4 or postfix

17:11 <CoderForLife> when you cripple the competition OOTB, then you rock, but it's a hollow victory

17:12 * quail likes and uses exim 4, end of story :-P

17:12 * CoderForLife is going to have to re-write the sendmail config due to debian crap settings

17:13 <quail> debian or ubuntu

17:13 <KathrynM> and I thought fooling with grub and fstab was fun...

17:13 <dizzie> mutt+exim works :)

17:13 <CoderForLife> hi KathrynM

17:13 <dizzie> Hello KathrynM :)

17:13 <KathrynM> hola CoderForLife dizzie quail xcamel PovAddict

17:13 <KathrynM> and anyone else who may be hanging around

17:13 <quail> KathrynM: howdy

17:14 <CoderForLife> I have a great setup for sendmail that has been great for me, just trying to implement it on ubuntu - not re-work all my stuff for some other MTA

17:14 <KathrynM> Today is Friday!  Today is Friday!

17:14 <dizzie> Grub and fun in the same sentense, cant be right :)

17:14 <quail> dizzie: yeah mutt and exim4 + fetchmail = goodness

17:14 <KathrynM> only with a good dose of sarcasm

17:14 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

17:14 <dizzie> quail: indeed :)

17:14 * KathrynM needs to reboot to get the new fstab working.

17:14 <dizzie> Can ssh from anywhere to check mail :)

17:14 * KathrynM is waiting for yum update to finish

17:14 <CoderForLife> maybe I should do CentOS

17:14 <KathrynM> still looking for a distor CoderForLife

17:15 <dizzie> Eww

17:15 <KathrynM> a distro even

17:15 <quail> CoderForLife: and ubuntu frig to much around to make things as simple as

17:15 <dizzie> CoderForLife: try FreeBSD

17:15 <dizzie> Serious, give it a try

17:15 <CoderForLife> nope

17:15 <dizzie> All your troubles will vanish

17:16 <dizzie> Mine did :)

17:16 <CoderForLife> I want to stay more with what enterprises will be running, either on server or desktop

17:16 <quail> freebsd is great for firewall/gateway/routers

17:16 <dizzie> Been using FreeBSD since (ugh let me think) 2002 i think

17:16 <CoderForLife> I have been running Red Hat and variants since RH 4.3

17:17 <dizzie> My first RH was with kernel 2.0.28 i think :)

17:17 * quail loves his laptop running debian testing/unstable :-)

17:18 <dizzie> Debian smells, it refuses to let me use my usb drive unless i was root :)

17:18 <CoderForLife> er, 4.2

17:18 * quail remembers his first linux distro as he using the disc as a coaster

17:18 * quail 's first linux distro he used was RH 5.2

17:18 <dizzie> Redhat named their versions funny names. RH2 was called Colgate i think :)

17:19 <quail> toothpaste

17:19 <dizzie> Hehe yep

17:19 <CoderForLife> the only reason I'm fooling around with this is that F9 was giving me Apache stability problems running SugarCRM under PHP

17:19 <quail> CoderForLife: ubuntu?

17:19 <dizzie> I wouldnt even touch F9 with a firepoker

17:20 <CoderForLife> once more again - I came the RH way

17:20 <dizzie> I use lots of mm codecs, and on F9 its pay-for-use, which is kinda lame

17:20 <CoderForLife> dunno anything about that

17:21 <dizzie> As if.... i want to PAY for be able to watch dvds...

17:21 <dizzie> Could aswell install Windows :)

17:22 <CoderForLife> I've been running RH, Mandrake, Fedora, etc since 1997

17:22 <quail> joke time

17:22 <quail> 3 people had carpool: a mechanical engineer, a electrical engineer and a Microsoft programmer. But the car suddenly broke down. Mechanical engineer said: "Hey! It has to be the fuel injection. Lemme fix it."  The electrical engineer didn't agree: "It's magneto probably. I'll fix it." Microsoft programmer shoke his head and said: "Hey guys, I have a simpler idea: Let's just close all the windows, get out of the car, then get back into it, and

17:22 <CoderForLife> anyway - back to sendmail config

17:23 <dizzie> Then it would be silly listening to us and install a diff distro :)

17:23 <dizzie> Haha quail classy joke :)

17:23 <dizzie> quail btw, Debian 4.0 ?

17:24 <quail> dizzie: on servers I setup yes debian stable, and for my desktop/laptop it debian testing/unstable

17:25 <dizzie> Too bad you cant apt-get FF3 yet though :(

17:25 <quail> dizzie: my desktop atm is running ubuntu hardy as debian testing installer could not find my cdrom

17:26 <dizzie> I use ubuntu 8.04 aswell on this laptop

17:27 * CoderForLife goes to look at CentOS

17:27 <dizzie> 4.0r3 is my newest debian cd

17:28 <quail> dizzie: I use irssi within screen on my desktop and connect to it from laptop via ssh

17:28 <dizzie> Friend of mine still uses EPIC :)

17:28 <quail> and I use rtorrent in screen too

17:29 <dizzie> Do you use compiz then?

18:22 <CoderForLife> "Save the Arecibo Telescope"

18:24 <PovAddict> a beg email?

18:24 <CoderForLife> did this e-mail go outside the U.S.?

18:26 <CoderForLife> "Arecibo Observatory, the world's largest radio telescope and the source for the SETI@home data that your computer analyzes, faces massive budget cuts that will END its ability to continue the search for life beyond Earth. The decision to ensure full funding currently rests upon votes in Congress on Senate Bill S.

18:26 <CoderForLife> 2862 and House Resolution H.R. 3737. These bills desperately need more support."

18:30 <quail> CoderForLife: I never got the email about that

18:30 <CoderForLife> ah, someone speaks =)

18:30 <CoderForLife> that's one vote for "not outside U.S." =)

18:31 <CoderForLife> that would end your precious stream of WUs, quail

18:31 <quail> but my email address I use for seti is based in the US

18:31 <CoderForLife> maybe we could turn SAH into an oldies stations, re-playing all the greatest WUs

18:32 <quail> lol

18:33 <quail> CoderForLife: if seti shuts up shop I will most prob move to climate prediction
