10:50 <nickuwo> yes, the warning
10:50 <PovAdct_w> :)
10:51 <PovAdct_w> and it's something done wrong in the default bundled set of macros, not in BOINC autoconf
10:51 <PovAdct_w> just ignore it and move along
10:51 <nickuwo> I think its causing probs
10:51 <nickuwo> I'm running make_project and it hanngs when it tries to generate keys
10:51 <PovAdct_w> no way it has anything to do

11:10 <nickuwo> nope exited normally again... just took awhile
11:12 <PovAdct_w> expect it to take 5-10 seconds
11:13 <nickuwo> that's odd that it either takes way longer or doesn't work at all outside of gdb...
11:14 <PovAdct_w> odd inded

13:12 <ilyak_> hi *
13:13 <ilyak_> After I've upgraded to lenny, boinc cpu load became saw-like: it periodically, with period of 10 seconds, drops to 0% for one second
13:14 *** BB_Laptop_ has quit IRC
13:14 <ilyak_> Also, it looks like WCG doesn't acually does anything due to "peer certificate cannot be authenticated", what to do?
13:16 <PovAdct_w> ilyak_: operating system?
13:16 <ilyak_> PovAdct_w: Debian Lenny
13:16 <PovAdct_w> did you apt-get boinc?
13:17 <PovAdct_w> or where did you download BOINC from?
13:17 <ilyak_> Well, yes, I have a boinc-client 6.2.7-1 installed
13:17 <PovAdct_w> o_o
13:17 <PovAdct_w> the APT repositories have 6.2.7?
13:18 <ilyak_> Well, I guess
13:19 <PovAdct_w> well, with the dependencies of that package, I don't see why you have SSL certificate problems with WCG
13:19 <ilyak_> rosetta works just fine but WCG fails
13:19 <PovAdct_w> as for the saw-tooth CPU time: that's a setting
13:19 <PovAdct_w> maybe you set 90% CPU usage back when that setting didn't really take effect, and forgot (happened to me)
13:19 <ilyak_> PovAdct_w: Where can I change it?
13:20 <PovAdct_w> project website
13:20 <ilyak_> Which one?
13:20 <Romulus> It has been said that Which one is giving you headaches, ilyak_
13:20 <PovAdct_w> any you're attached to
13:22 <ilyak_> Oh, I see it in boincmgr settings, just changed and it now longer saws
13:22 <ilyak_> I wonder why this is set to 90% if it's niced to the death anyway
13:23 <PovAdct_w> useful for laptops
13:23 <KathrynM> PovAdct_w, Didactylos said something about the Debian folks breaking things again.
13:23 <PovAdct_w> to avoid overheating
13:23 <ilyak_> Oh.
13:24 <KathrynM> I'm not coherent enough to recall what was said though.
13:25 <Didactylos> I think updating the ca-certificate package was required.
13:25 <KathrynM> and poof Didactylos appears :)
13:25 <ilyak_> well, it tells me that latest version is installed, I'll try apt-cache update
13:25 <Didactylos> xchat hilight FTW.
13:26 <PovAdct_w> hmm boinc depends on a libcurl *with* openssl
13:26 * KathrynM loves xchat :)
13:26 <Didactylos> Correct.
13:26 <PovAdct_w> then why is it failing?
13:27 <Didactylos> Jul 03 19:17:55 <EagleScreen>I updated ca-certificates and curl to version of Debian Sid and now boinc connect well
13:27 <ilyak_> Okay, I've updated ca-certificates to 20080617
13:27 <ilyak_> I'll see if it will fix the problem
13:27 <PovAdct_w> boinc-client (6.2.7-1) on lenny depends on libcurl3 (>= 7.16.2-1) which depends on ca-certificates and libssl0.9.8; ca-certificates from lenny doesn't have the root cert WCG uses?
13:28 <Didactylos> Sounds like.
13:29 <ilyak_> Well, I've restarted boinc, still fails: "HTTP error"
13:49 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc
14:02 <Soul_keeper> ok
14:07 <ilyak_> updated curl and libcurl3 to unstable, still fails

14:34 <Didactylos> show me the startup messages, and I can confirm.
14:34 <ilyak_> well, libcurl3 depends on libssl0.9.8 (>= 0.9.8f-5)

14:39 <ilyak_> Nope, I'm talking about pastebin
14:40 <ilyak_> my irc client runs koi-8 and that's what I really mean to use
14:40 <ilyak_> Since it's still used on cyrillic channels, sadly
14:40 <ilyak_> What about that error log?
14:41 <Didactylos> You would have to turn on some logging flags.
14:41 <ilyak_> Which ones?
14:43 <Didactylos> It goes back to the CA error. Are you sure that's resolved?
14:43 <ilyak_> Well, I did install curl3 and ca-certificates from unstable.
14:43 <ilyak_> I don't know what I might do besides that.
14:45 <Didactylos> Try downloading the certificates directly:
14:46 <Didactylos> (Follow the instructions for problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?))
14:48 <ilyak_> Now it works, thanks
14:48 <ilyak_> I wonder why they broke it, but I guess I can't complain since it isn't stable yet

19:54 <KathrynM> Beaker as the piccolo was great
19:54 <Rookie_69> :-)
19:54 <KathrynM> My brother sent it to me.
19:55 <Rookie_69> Beaker... Why couldn't I remember that? We named one of the guys after him.
19:58 <Rookie_69> I just made the mistake of opening a box of chocolate covered granola bars...
19:58 <KathrynM> yummmmmmmmy
19:58 <KathrynM> is 9am too early to eat my last mini 3muskateers?
19:58 <Rookie_69> Too much so... Three gone already.
19:59 <Rookie_69> Is the sun too bright to shine?
19:59 <KathrynM> nah
19:59 <KathrynM> :)
19:59 <Rookie_69> Eat it and the answer will reveal itself.
20:00 <Rookie_69> ... or not.

20:01 <KathrynM> Hmmm... HoneyNut Cherrios or Kashi blueberry granola stuff or Eggo waffles?
20:01 <KathrynM> (god bless Costco)
20:01 <Rookie_69> Bacon flavored coffee and coffee flavored cereal?
20:01 <KathrynM> cause god knows you can't get this stuff in a regular store

20:06 <Rookie_69> Hi, Don... Tired of celebrating?
20:06 <KathrynM> How goes the Coding?
20:06 <KathrynM> or does CoderForLife take a Code break on national holidays
20:06 <KathrynM> ?
20:06 <CoderForLife> I've been doing some Coding today - and just started installing CentOS 5.2
20:07 <Rookie_69> Coder celebrates holidays by coding...
20:07 <CoderForLife> I have given up on anything tainted by Debian
20:07 <KathrynM> come back to the RedHat light
20:08 <CoderForLife> IMHO, ubuntu server is a mess
20:08 <CoderForLife> yup - home again
20:08 <KathrynM> gonna see if I can reproduce a bug.
20:09 <Rookie_69> Fruitflies are supposed to be easy to reproduce...
20:09 * CoderForLife swept up 3 ants by the front door
20:10 <Rookie_69> Sweep them into the scanner...
20:10 <KathrynM> yay. reproduced it
20:10 <KathrynM> PovAddict, Didactylos either of you around?
20:10 <Rookie_69> Ants or fruitflies?
20:10 <Didactylos> I am.
20:10 <KathrynM> reproduced the can't get network name thing
20:11 <KathrynM> (or whatever the text was)
20:11 <PovAddict> ooh is it printing that *right now*?
20:11 <KathrynM> all I have to do is change the computer name
20:11 <KathrynM> no, I stopped it
20:11 <Rookie_69> Thingie?
20:11 <KathrynM> now it's going.
20:11 <PovAddict> I mean, if you start boincmgr again, it does so?
20:11 <KathrynM> what do you need
20:11 <PovAddict> so you figured out how to repro
20:11 <PovAddict> let me test myself
20:11 <KathrynM> yes, it'll probably keep going until the services are restarted or the computer rebooted
20:11 <KathrynM> yes, I just changed the host name
20:12 <KathrynM> I'm emailing Rom now (he sent me an email about it too)
20:12 <CoderForLife> well, I'm going to go watch the CentOS installation paint dry
20:12 <Rookie_69> Lol.
20:12 <KathrynM> have fun
20:12 <CoderForLife> Oooo yeah
20:12 <CoderForLife> tc all
20:13 <Rookie_69> L8er.
20:14 <PovAddict> can't repro
20:14 <PovAddict> maybe I'm changing things wrong
20:14 <KathrynM> I go into system - network configuration
20:15 <KathrynM> dns tab
20:15 <KathrynM> change hostname and save
20:15 <KathrynM> start the manager (I do it from a shell)
20:15 <KathrynM> message prints every second
20:15 <PovAddict> well, I changed my computer name from the shell using 'hostname'
20:15 <PovAddict> all sorts of things broke
20:15 <KathrynM> :)
20:15 <KathrynM> I've not noticed anything else breaking.
20:16 <PovAddict> I changed it back
20:16 <PovAddict> yet I *can't start any app*
20:16 <KathrynM> It does say you should reboot or restart the network services
20:16 <PovAddict> can't reach KLaunch via DCOP
20:16 <KathrynM> restart the network service
20:16 <KathrynM> (not that I know exactly which service that would be)
20:17 <Didactylos> PovAddict: I don't think that's permanent, anyway.
20:17 <PovAddict> &ping
20:17 <Romulus> pong
20:17 <PovAddict> Didactylos: oh definitely, a reboot would fix it <.<
20:17 <KathrynM> bye bye uptime
20:17 <PovAddict> if I start Konsole from the panel icon, it says it can't reach KLauncher via DCOP
20:17 <PovAddict> if I start it from another Konsole, it says it can't connect to the X server to :0.0
20:18 <KathrynM> you really broke it
20:19 * Rookie_69 is glad he only runs an idiot-proof BOINC version on an old linux box when it's cold.
20:20 <KathrynM> there's an idiot proof version of boinc?
20:20 <Rookie_69> Well, it keeps working for me.
20:20 <PovAddict> I renamed a few DCOP-related files in ~ that still had the old hostname
20:20 <PovAddict> no workie
20:21 <KathrynM> A debian thing perhaps?

23:02 <PovAddict> I just profiled the manager
23:02 <PovAddict> biggest CPU hog: strstr
23:02 <PovAddict> oh wait loaded wrong dump v.v
23:03 <efc> Having problems on the manager?
23:04 <PovAddict> just f*cking around with valgrind
23:04 <efc> Ah
23:05 <Didactylos> strstr? That would be the biggest cost of GUIRPC, I would guess.
23:05 <PovAddict> Didactylos: yes, I had loaded the wrong dump (one from boinc_cmd)
23:05 <Didactylos> DA has funny ideas about optimisation.
23:05 <PovAddict> with boincmgr the dump is unreadable :) but pango seems to be pretty much at top
23:05 <PovAddict> oh actually...
23:06 <PovAddict> the biggest hog wasn't strstr, it was sprintf called from parse_bool
23:06 <PovAddict> depends on the command really
23:06 <Didactylos> He'll agonise over a function that gets called once, but something that is called all the time? Zip.
23:07 <PovAddict> I do that *sometimes*
23:07 <Didactylos> I hate premature optimisation.
23:07 <PovAddict> but I definitely won't do it anymore with *this* hell of a profiler
23:07 <PovAddict> boinc_cmd --get_state
23:07 <PovAddict> strstr used 43% of the main() runtime
23:08 <PovAddict> sprintf 15.43%
23:08 <PovAddict> printf (to output the result to the console) 10.23%
23:09 <PovAddict> I'll *try* to do another boincmgr profile...
23:09 <PovAddict> (synecdoche boincmgr actually, since it's the only one I have handy with debugging symbols)
23:09 <Didactylos> why use a hashtable or something, when you can compare your string to every possible string?
23:10 <PovAddict> Didactylos: that's what it looked like the Linux dynamic loader was doing actually :/
23:10 * PovAddict makes another boinccmd dump, *not* starting from main() but from the very top level
23:12 <PovAddict> boinc_cmd --get_project_config
23:12 <PovAddict> 14210 calls to strcmp
23:12 <Didactylos> Oh, remember that const overloading of strstr?
23:12 <PovAddict> all of them from ld-2.7.so
23:12 <Didactylos> Apparently char * strstr ( const char *, const char * ); is C
23:12 <Didactylos> and
23:12 <Didactylos> const char * strstr ( const char * str1, const char * str2 );
23:12 <Didactylos> char * strstr ( char * str1, const char * str2 );
23:13 <Didactylos> are C++
23:13 <PovAddict> that 'splains stuff
23:13 * KathrynM head splodes
23:14 <Didactylos> strcmp is much more efficient, because it terminates as soon as it doesn't match.
23:14 <Didactylos> strstr has to go all the way.
23:15 <Didactylos> With real strings, optimisation would be possible. With C strings, optimisation is almost impossible.
23:15 <PovAddict> actually with C strings you can do quite a bit of optimization
23:15 <PovAddict> ...doing pointer arithmetic and other uglyness instead of calling library functions
23:16 <PovAddict> (although you need assembly code to beat strcmp speed)
23:16 <Didactylos> I mean for strstr. The algorithms I know would need the string length.
23:18 <Didactylos> Nothing wrong with library functions. It's all inlined by the compiler.
23:18 <Didactylos> Not that I care enough to check :-D
23:19 <PovAddict> I know simple stuff like strcpy is written in assembly
23:19 <PovAddict> with the loop unrolled a few levels; enough to improve speed, not enough to fill too much the instruction cache

23:32 <Didactylos> KathrynM: did you get a call stack from that hostname thing?
23:33 <KathrynM> nope

23:33 <KathrynM> PovAddict, ping
23:33 <PovAddict> Didactylos: "break write" isn't enough; for example, perror() seems to print stuff by itself, not even calling write (which I thought was as lowlevel as it could get)
23:34 <KathrynM> btw, a reboot didn't fix it this time
23:34 <PovAddict> but we didn't really try that part, she got a strange message and I was trying to figure out what it was about :)
23:34 <PovAddict> I tried on my machine that perror() didn't trigger it
23:35 <Didactylos> It was *exactly* once per second, wasn't it?
23:37 <KathrynM> yup Didactylos
23:43 <KathrynM> gdb is fun
23:43 <Romulus> Title: general pastebin - Stuff - post number 1062774 (at pastebin.ca)
23:44 <Didactylos> I was looking at that.
23:44 <Didactylos> I ruled it out because the timer is supposed to be 250 ms.
23:49 *** wdsmia_ has quit IRC
23:50 <KathrynM> oh this is interesting
23:50 <KathrynM> in simple view I don't get the error at all
23:50 *** zombie67 has quit IRC
23:50 <KathrynM> bunch of messages about missing images (meh, whatever)
23:50 <KathrynM> rather not being able to load images
23:51 <PovAddict> IsComputerLocal() is used to change the statusbar message
23:51 <KathrynM> god is the bsgui *ugly*
23:51 <KathrynM> the buttons are almost unreadable

23:52 <Didactylos> It's u8gly even when it isn't broken.
23:52 <Didactylos> I don't know what IBM were thinking - programmers are rarely graphic artists.
23:52 <PovAddict> KathrynM: see my attachment
23:52 <KathrynM> it's a bloody blocker?
23:53 <KathrynM> and it was reported in 5.9?
23:53 <KathrynM> holy crap
23:53 <PovAddict> yes it's a blocker but it was *closed as fixed*
23:54 <Didactylos> The "solution" was to revert to wxwidgets 2.6
23:54 <KathrynM> head asplodes
23:54 <PovAddict> on the official binaries...
23:54 <Didactylos> Not that they documented that fact.
23:54 <KathrynM> so uh, this is the official berk binary I have
23:54 <KathrynM> so uh
23:54 * KathrynM will stick to teaching English
23:55 <KathrynM> let me screen shoot it
23:56 <Didactylos> PovAddict: OnPoll isn't the status bar.
23:56 <PovAddict> then you tell me
23:56 <PovAddict> what is IsLocalHostname called for?
23:57 <Didactylos> That confuses me, because it's called there, too.
