02:24 <Soul_keeper> anyone here own a 12MB cache c2d quad ?

02:26 <efc> It blowin your doors off yet?

02:27 <Soul_keeper> dmesg and cpuinfo  are only showing 6MB

02:27 <Soul_keeper> could be an issue with the kernel not yet "knowing" this new of a cpu

02:28 <efc> CPUz if you can boot windows

02:28 <Soul_keeper> no

02:28 <Soul_keeper> the bios post screen shows 12, and it says 12 on the cpu

02:29 <Soul_keeper> i do have it overclocked, perhaps that could be at fault, i suppose i can try lowering it :(

02:29 <Soul_keeper> i suspect it's a matter of not having the cpuid in the kernel yet tho

02:30 <Soul_keeper> the cpu only came out like 2 months ago

02:30 <efc> yeah i never heard of cache wigging out

02:33 <Soul_keeper> system seems somewhat sluggish, gotta go mess with things

02:34 <Soul_keeper> with 4 threads of wcg running my browser and stuff are much more sluggish than on the c2d dual

02:34 <Soul_keeper> bbl

03:18 <Soul_keeper> this is officially the worst pc upgrade i've ever done

03:19 <Soul_keeper> either i have a defective cpu, or the motherboard maker's bios needs a cpu microcode update

03:19 <Soul_keeper> the computer is nonresponsive

03:20 <Soul_keeper> sluggish and stuff

03:44 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

03:44 <dizzie> b0rked CPU?

03:49 <Soul_keeper> possibly

03:49 <Soul_keeper> found a bios version on their ftp server that's not linked on their website, gonna try that ...

03:49 <dizzie> that or memoryfail

03:49 <Soul_keeper> no it's either bios or cpu

03:49 <Soul_keeper> bbs

03:50 <dizzie> Got any systemtest tools kinda thin

03:50 <dizzie> +g

03:50 <Soul_keeper> don't need those

07:44 <dizzie> I don't get it, Rosetta needs 99mb to run (it failed to run) and i got like 500GB freespace...

07:44 <dizzie> Stupid bint...

07:45 <CoderForLife> morning dizzie

07:46 <dizzie> Afternoon CoderForLife :)

07:50 <dizzie> Running boinc on 4 cores is fun :)

07:50 <dizzie> Compared to this old AMD i am chatting from that is

07:50 <CoderForLife> yeah, I've been doing similar (2 Xeons hypethreaded) for a few years now

07:51 <CoderForLife> hyper*

07:52 <dizzie> SAH and EAH will run, rest fails... guess i should look for new projects then

07:52 <dizzie> Rosetta was down most of the time anyway

08:11 <xcamel> 'lo

08:12 <CoderForLife> morning Jay

08:12 <CoderForLife> just looking at the APOD - fascinating, but a repeat

08:25 <xcamel> a cloudburst this am ended my plans for the day.

08:26 <xcamel> damn weather.

08:29 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

08:30 <KathrynM> how in the world can I *not* owe the water company any money?

08:30 <KathrynM> at least I think this is my water bill

08:31 <CoderForLife> your roof drains are leaking into the water system, causing the meter to run backwards?

08:31 <KathrynM> I have no idea.

08:31 <KathrynM> And I can't read the bill to figure it out.

08:31 <xcamel> ugh

08:31 <CoderForLife> sorry about your cloudburst xcamel

08:32 <CoderForLife> my altered gutters seem to have worked in yetserday's downpour

08:33 <xcamel> it's that bit about having 3 fields of hay down ready to bale...

08:33 <CoderForLife> yeo

08:33 <CoderForLife> er yep

08:33 <CoderForLife> lol

08:35 <xcamel> this is depressing

08:35 <CoderForLife> what?

08:35 <CoderForLife> the hay?

08:36 <xcamel> likely ruined

08:36 <CoderForLife> it's probably not good to bale wet hay

08:36 <CoderForLife> they'd cook themselves away in short order, I imagine

08:36 <CoderForLife> but I'm no farmer/rancher

08:37 <xcamel> please note that tractor fuel is also 4.89/gal

08:37 <CoderForLife> ah

08:37 <KathrynM> gas prices everywhere makes me glad I don't drive right now.

08:37 <CoderForLife> I saw on the news where farmers were getting fuel stolen in the middle of the night

08:37 <xcamel> and those bales are worth about $75 each now

08:40 <CoderForLife> the guy who came yesterday to look at the landslide, who has a competitive product to Allan Block said whoever told me I needed a retaining wall is nuts

08:41 <KathrynM> what do you need?

08:42 <CoderForLife> he wants to not build any wall, 'de-water' the entire hillside with drain lines dug into the hill all around, move disposal dirt onto the neighbor's property and into the watershed of the protected scenic river it feeds - all without a written plan

08:42 <CoderForLife> sure...

08:42 <xcamel> funny how they come out of the woodwork...

08:43 <CoderForLife> I invited him as a wall alternative to the Allan Block design

08:44 <CoderForLife> he wants to tear down all the trees as well

08:44 <CoderForLife> I'm thinking - not

08:44 <KathrynM> uh, isn't tearing down the trees a bad idea?

08:44 <KathrynM> like aren't they helping hold the soil?

08:45 <CoderForLife> yes, of course

08:46 <KathrynM> so I'm not going crazy.

08:46 <CoderForLife> I am...

08:46 <KathrynM> Oh well.  I'm going to collapse.

08:46 <KathrynM> I'm sunburned from the little walking around I did today.

08:46 <CoderForLife> I've been trying to approach something methodically that is manical in nature

08:46 <KathrynM> oh crap...  forgot to hang up my laundry.  I bet it's wrinkled as hell :/

08:47 <KathrynM> I'm an idiot.

08:47 <KathrynM> That's the story of my life CoderForLife

08:47 <xcamel> naaa..

08:47 <CoderForLife> if I could only get some fscking bids

08:47 <KathrynM> manical is a tame word for it (as you saw in the video)

08:47 <KathrynM> oh well, later gators

08:47 <CoderForLife> cya KathrynM

08:50 <CoderForLife> lots of loons want the job is the "big boys" are too expensive

08:50 <CoderForLife> the biggest boy was supposed to get he his bid last Friday

08:56 <xcamel> they all just dragging you along?

09:05 <CoderForLife> Some are small fry..  The big ones I can't tell what's going on

09:05 <CoderForLife> They are "very interested", but no bids pop out

09:06 <CoderForLife> promised dates for delivering bids go by without a peep

09:07 <CoderForLife> I'm so frustrated I could chew nails

09:09 * CoderForLife updates the warbird web site with delayed update requests

09:12 <xcamel> I understand frustrated... about $150 in fuel and 3 days labor just went down the drain..

09:12 <xcamel> I hate having to spin it all back out and watch it turn into a slimy mess.

09:13 <xcamel> these am showers were **not** in the forecast...

09:13 <CoderForLife> yeah - what a waste of assets and sweat

09:18 <CoderForLife> Stephen's up - going to talk to him - bbiab

13:49 <Soul_keeper> Intel robbed me

13:50 <xcamel> join the club..

13:50 <Soul_keeper> i've either got a bios issue, or a defective cpu here

13:51 <xcamel> what is it not doing?

13:51 <Soul_keeper> every since i got it it's been sluggish

13:51 <Soul_keeper> like takes me 5min to scroll down a website

13:51 <xcamel> what does cpu-z say?

13:52 <Soul_keeper> i don't use windows

13:52 <Soul_keeper> but i can pastebin my /proc/cpuinfo  if you like

13:52 <xcamel> iirc, that reports what it should be, not what it is.

13:53 <dizzie> Soul_keeper: use grep to trim it

13:53 <xcamel> bbiab..

13:53 <dizzie> cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep MHz (or model)

13:53 <Soul_keeper>

13:53 <Romulus> Title: linuxsociety private pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at

13:53 <dizzie> sec

13:54 <Soul_keeper> well not sure what you'd be looking for

13:54 <Soul_keeper> it's only reporting 6MB of cache instead of 12

13:54 <Soul_keeper> but i've seen screenshots of people's  windows things saying   2x6MB

13:55 <Soul_keeper> i think they just need a bios update, i e-mailed the motherboard maker

13:55 <Soul_keeper> the board says right on the box it support 1333FSB and quads

13:55 <dizzie> 9450 comes in 4 6 and 8mb's ?

13:55 <Soul_keeper> 12

13:55 <Soul_keeper> 6 and 12

13:56 <Soul_keeper> i got the 12  cost me 300 bucks

13:56 <dizzie> Any "funny" stuff in dmesg ?

13:57 <Soul_keeper> lemme check again

13:58 <desti> it's nothing wrong there

13:58 <desti> it shows how many level 2 cache is accesable for each core

13:59 <dizzie> It could be: Payed for a 12mb but was a 6mb in the box? (maybe some jerk at the shop swapped the CPU's from 2 diff boxes)

13:59 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

13:59 <dizzie> I would go back and proof its a 6mb, and ask how or even why it only shows as 6mb

13:59 <Soul_keeper> it says 12MB right on the chip

14:00 <Soul_keeper>

14:00 <Romulus> <> (at

14:00 <dizzie> And its not a kernel issue ?

14:00 <Soul_keeper> i tryed 2 different kernels, and atleast 4 different configs

14:01 <dizzie> *ponders*

14:01 <dizzie> What else but SMP is needed in a kernel ?

14:02 <Soul_keeper> pretty much nothing,  everything that worked on my c2d e4300  should work on this

14:02 <Soul_keeper> the only odd display i am getting in the dmesg is a few of these   system 00:08: iomem range 0xe0000000-0xefffffff could not be reserved         but that's a pci/acpi  thing ....

14:02 <MTughan> Are there any tasks taking up lots of CPU time?

14:03 <dizzie> Not sure, but... you sure 'cpuinfo' is up to date?

14:03 <Soul_keeper> MTughan,  if i suspend boinc and have nothing running, it is still slow

14:03 <Soul_keeper> dizzie, yes

14:03 <MTughan> After that, I mean.

14:03 <MTughan> And what's your memory usage?

14:03 <dizzie> I would be polite tomorrow and take cpu + proof back to the store

14:03 <dizzie> And ask "how and why"

14:04 <dizzie> Drag you pc with you if you have to (i once did that hehe)

14:04 <Soul_keeper> MTughan, only using like 15%

14:04 <Soul_keeper> for 300 bucks things should just work

14:05 <Soul_keeper> i suspect it's very likely it's a bios/motherboard compatibility issue

14:05 <MTughan> Reminds me of when I first built this computer... Went through I think it was 3 sets of dual-channel RAM that had one stick defective. 4th was the charm.

14:05 <Soul_keeper> my board is V1.0

14:05 <dizzie> 300?? a 2.4 Quad is like 400-420 here

14:05 <Soul_keeper> yeah it was on sell

14:05 <dizzie> Ahh

14:06 <dizzie> Maybe its broken/b0rked ?

14:06 <Soul_keeper> i've had defective intel cpu's before ...

14:06 <Soul_keeper> wouldn't surprise me

14:06 <dizzie> Stress it and see if it will fail

14:06 <Soul_keeper> it's been running boinc all night

14:06 <Soul_keeper> stable as can be

14:07 <Soul_keeper> just sluggish and barely responsive

14:07 <dizzie> Could be a switch on your motherboard or a setting in bios

14:07 <Soul_keeper> almost feels like it's throttled itself to 500MHz

14:07 <Soul_keeper> yeah i upgraded the bios twice, and played with settings for a few hours

14:08 <dizzie> And your motherboard?

14:08 <Soul_keeper> no jumpers on it cept clr cmos

14:08 <dizzie> Tried different bios'

14:08 <Soul_keeper> yes

14:08 <Soul_keeper> the latest

14:09 <Soul_keeper> even found a later version hidden on the manufacturer's ftp server

14:09 <dizzie> *shrug* i donno then

14:09 <dizzie> Sorry

14:09 <Soul_keeper> this cpu has a package date of like 2 months ago

14:10 <Soul_keeper> i guess i jumped the gun, shoulda waited for them to work out the bugs

14:10 <dizzie> Maybe they can explain it to you tomorrow at the shop

14:10 <dizzie> They better..

14:10 <Soul_keeper> i did the same thing when inte went to .09nm   bought a p4e the first couple weeks it came out, and it was DOA

14:11 <Soul_keeper> second one worked tho

14:11 <Soul_keeper> the shop is open right now

14:11 <dizzie> Call them

14:11 <dizzie> Or visit them

14:11 <dizzie> I would

14:11 <Soul_keeper> yeah they'll exchange it if i go there

14:11 <Soul_keeper> they get a lot of returns

14:11 <dizzie> I would go back with proof that its faulty

14:11 <Soul_keeper> the biggest electronics store in my city

14:12 <dizzie> What kernel version btw

14:12 <Soul_keeper>

14:13 <dizzie> i use .18 :)

14:13 <Soul_keeper> was using  but after the issues weren't going away i tryed this one

14:14 <Soul_keeper> i'm gonna try some other stuff

14:14 <dizzie> Okay

14:14 <dizzie> I'll go back to my gentoo fun :)

14:14 <Soul_keeper> appears to just be the desktop, if i do preemptive kernel it might clear it up

14:14 <dizzie> Try a depend and start from scratch

14:15 <dizzie> if that wont work, go back to the shop

14:15 <Soul_keeper> problem is, if it's a bios issue then the next cpu will do the same

14:15 <dizzie> Is it a big shop?

14:16 <Soul_keeper> yes

14:16 <dizzie> I would call and ask if i could bring the pc along so they could test more than one cpu

14:16 <Soul_keeper> the return line has people backed up out the door

14:16 <dizzie> Wow

15:49 <surrealillusion> so i turn it into the media centre pc and seti cruncher

16:31 <Soul_keeper> installed my old cpu, everything is fast again ...

16:31 <efc3> Did you try running less BOINC threads?

16:31 <PovAddict> efc3: it's slow with BOINC off

16:33 <efc3> Hmm. Wonder if cache is turned off?

16:37 *** jackygrahamez__ has quit IRC

16:39 <Soul_keeper> i'm taking the cpu back

16:39 <Soul_keeper> the only question is whether i should exchange it or just get my money and run

16:41 <efc3> Were you able to get a tool that you trust check it out and see if everything was on?

16:42 <Soul_keeper> yeah  /proc/cpuinfo  and dmesg

16:42 <PovAddict> that's not a tool to test CPUs...

16:42 <efc3> They give bus speeds and all that?

16:42 <Soul_keeper> also  tryed  memtest86  and it confirms that half the cache is disabled

16:42 <PovAddict> use one of those torture tests (prime95?)

16:43 <Soul_keeper> i'm done with it, it shoulda worked

16:43 *** jackygrahamez__ has joined #boinc

16:43 <Soul_keeper> the first P4 i bought was also defective, second one they sent me after RMA worked ...  seems like an intel thing

16:43 <Soul_keeper> never had a DOA amd chip

16:44 <efc3> Seems like its probably a BIOS or improbably, a kernel thing

16:44 <Soul_keeper> and i've owned twice as many amd chips in my time

16:45 <Soul_keeper> if it's a bios issue i have no recourse

16:45 <Soul_keeper> i'd have to pay 150 bucks for a new motherboard

16:45 <Soul_keeper> i wasn't prepared to make this an entire system upgrade

16:47 <efc3> Any windows hard drives you could boot just to run CPUZ for a minute?

16:50 <Soul_keeper> no

16:50 <Soul_keeper> i'd rather smash my pc than do that

16:52 <PovAddict> wintendo indeed; main use is videogames

16:52 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

16:52 <dizzie> Wine exists for that :)

16:52 <Soul_keeper> i'm looking into updating the microcode

16:52 <Soul_keeper> that could fix it ...

16:52 <PovAddict> try it and see

16:53 <PovAddict> afaik you can't break it by updating the microcode

16:53 <PovAddict> because it's lost on poweroff

16:53 <dizzie> The Slack installer is nice, it kernelpanics :o

16:53 <PovAddict> (the OS re-sends the microcode on every boot)

16:55 <dizzie> I have weird friends, friend just called me asking if i WANT his old Asus motherboard, less than 7 days old.... Mhnm i only need a Quadcore CPU then :)

16:55 <surrealillusion> nice

16:56 <dizzie> Guess i can kick this AMD 2400+ out then ;o

17:00 <Soul_keeper> lol

17:00 <Soul_keeper> bbl

17:00 *** Soul_keeper has quit IRC

17:00 <dizzie> This is new... i boot, it kernelpanics :o

17:00 <dizzie> From CD... not harddrive

17:47 <lsEee> who else here has a quad core with linux ?

17:49 <efc3> Soul did unless he took it back in the last 30 minutes

17:49 <efc3> he couldn't get the cache working right

17:49 <surrealillusion> lsEee: I do

17:49 <surrealillusion> i run a Q6600 G0 with Gentoo

17:50 <lsEee> i'm bout to burn a gentoo livecd

17:50 <lsEee> so i can double check the issue

17:50 <lsEee> downloading at 1MB/s

17:50 <surrealillusion> what issue?

17:50 * lsEee == Soul_keeper

17:51 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

18:00 <lsEee> there is no food in my house, guess the responsible thing to do would be take this Q9450 back and buy some food

18:06 <surrealillusion> ahh

18:06 <surrealillusion> damn you

18:06 <surrealillusion> i was gonna order one this month

18:06 <surrealillusion> but i have a feeling the price will drop again

18:06 <surrealillusion> on the q9450 down to sub 300

18:07 <lsEee> in 2 months they'll probably drop under 200

18:08 <surrealillusion> yeah

18:08 *** Rookie_69 has joined #boinc

18:08 <surrealillusion> which means i should be holding out to buy a 3rd quad core haha

18:08 <lsEee> amd quads will be our in 2-3 months

18:24 <Rookie_69> Hmm... two quad cores added to my inventory would probably more than double my output... Just need that winning lottery ticket.

18:30 <Rookie_69> ... but then I would maybe move out west to Eastern Canada to be closer to family and would no longer be the loner left out on the east coast...

18:30 <CoderForLife> back

18:30 <CoderForLife> no, xcamel has the front

18:32 <lsEee> my problem is a slackware issue it appears

18:33 <Rookie_69> Ah. That must be my tomorrow's rain.

18:33 <CoderForLife> that's a nasty bow, xcamel

18:33 <lsEee> gentoo livecd works fine ...

18:45 <Rookie_69> Stupid fingers...

18:45 <Rookie_69> Itsy...

18:49 * Rookie_69 wonders if a haircut is the best way to get epoxy out of his hair.

18:51 <CoderForLife> did you glue yourself to the boat *again*?

18:52 * Rookie_69 sidesteps the question.

18:53 <Rookie_69> I didn't get any on my hat though...

18:53 <Rookie_69> ... which was on my head.

18:53 *** wdsmia_ has quit IRC

18:54 <CoderForLife> it's a profound mystery

18:54 <CoderForLife> I'd suggest removing the hat when you get the haircut

18:55 <Rookie_69> At this rate, we'll have the boat ready to launch about november...

18:59 * PovAddict goes get flamed

19:00 * Rookie_69 thinks PovAddict can stay here and get flamed.

19:01 <KathrynM> I seee the insanity has risen to a new high here.

19:04 <PovAddict> I just know if I go to ##c++ and ask if istream::readsome reads enough data to cause streambuf::underflow to be called, I'll first get answers like "why the f*** do you need to know that? you must be doing something wrong if you need to know that"

19:09 <Rookie_69> I would have thought that a buffer underflow woudn't be as bad as a buffer overflow...

19:10 <Rookie_69> I thought I spelled that wrong, but it's just dinner stuck to my screen.

19:10 <PovAddict> in this case, it means "buffer empty; please refill"

19:11 <Rookie_69> Oh. I did spell it wrong.

19:12 <lsEee> any 12MB cache owners here ?

19:12 <Rookie_69> Insert data here.

19:13 <PovAddict> similarly, overflow() is to do "buffer full, write it to disk and empty it"

19:14 <Rookie_69> 12 megabucks of cash? Not me!

19:28 <KathrynM> for fun, I should take a picture of the white board after I've been teaching Kindgergarten math.

19:28 <Rookie_69> I can't draw a straight line with a ruler.

19:30 <KathrynM> I can't draw, but I pretend I can...

19:32 <Rookie_69> When I type a straight-line, it often gets missed too.

19:32 <Rookie_69> Medeuse?

19:32 <Rookie_69> See?

19:33 <KathrynM> this is sad...

19:33 <KathrynM> Do not lick your fingers to remove dust unless your pastels set clearly says "Non-Toxic" on the box. Always use a damp washcloth for cleaning your hands. Don't touch your mouth with pastel on your fingers.

19:33 <PovAddict> KathrynM: you're lucky freelarry isn't here

19:33 <KathrynM> it goes to prove just how stupid the human race can be

19:33 <KathrynM> why PovAddict ?

19:33 <PovAddict> you said the w-word

19:33 * KathrynM hides in a corner

19:34 <PovAddict> freelarry has a soap and isn't afraid to use it

19:34 <KathrynM> lol

19:34 <Rookie_69> Lol. Local coffee cup warning: contents may be hot.

19:34 <PovAddict> they better be

19:34 <KathrynM> ya think?

19:35 <KathrynM> unless it's iced coffee

19:35 * KathrynM bought a small purse so it wouldn't get disorganized and messy

19:35 * KathrynM 's purse is still disorganized and messy

19:35 <Rookie_69> Oh... sunrise... not a jellyfish.

19:36 <KathrynM> lol

19:36 <PovAddict> a few places now put those yellow signs saying "floor may be slippery" while cleaning the floor

19:36 <PovAddict> it's McDonalds who started... wonder why?

19:36 <KathrynM> those are standard in the US

19:36 <KathrynM> McDonalds got sued

19:36 <PovAddict> exactly, McDonalds comes from US :)

19:37 <Rookie_69> Doh't tell that to an Irishman...

19:37 <Rookie_69> ... don't...

19:39 <CoderForLife> back

19:39 <Rookie_69> forth.

19:39 <Didactylos> What's wrong with a sign the floor's wet?

19:40 <Didactylos> It's not exactly something you can see.

19:40 <KathrynM> nothing wrong with the wet floor sign

19:40 <KathrynM> it's the whole coffe might be hot thing that is stupid

19:40 <Didactylos> Indeed.

19:40 <Rookie_69> Nothing, but stating that a soapy floor may be slippery is redundant.

19:41 <CoderForLife> It's from the Department of Redundancies Department

19:41 <Didactylos> I think the signs here just have an infographic showing someone falling over.

19:41 <CoderForLife> Once again, we are not as enlightened

19:42 <CoderForLife> we have to have an infographic of a spanish-speaker falling over

19:42 <Rookie_69> I think all cars should have a warning sticker... Warning... Driving may be hazardous to your sanity.

19:42 <KathrynM> ol

19:42 <Didactylos> No, your signs are the same. They just say "caution: wet floor"

19:42 <KathrynM> lol

19:42 <KathrynM> in like 6 languages

19:42 <CoderForLife> yes, and they also say in in Spanish

19:51 <Rookie_69> I think there's some law here that states that there must be two french words for every english word on the warning label, but Peligro and a picture of flying fingers is enough for the Spanish.

19:52 <CoderForLife> it's due to the unfortunate events of 1066
