09:22 <Soul_keeper> i gotta go to my job RIGHT NOW    ttyl

09:22 <PovAdct_w> lol

09:24 <PovAdct_w> also, it seems the same happens with any software project I work on... I think it's easy, (if rewriting someone else's code) I think I can do better, I think I'll write good-quality code, I think I can do it quickly...

09:24 <PovAdct_w> but that's just what I think... in the end, I do write good-quality code, I do begin doing better than the original, but it turns harder than I initially thought, I take way too much time, then lose interest and go after a different shiny ball

09:24 <PovAdct_w> so it's like every month I collect another unfinished project

10:29 <KathrynM> anyone here on Fedora 9?

10:29 <dizzie> Hello all :)

10:29 <KathrynM> hiya dizz

10:30 <KathrynM> figured out what my computer problem was

10:30 <dizzie> Yes?

10:30 <Romulus> hmm... Yes is enable, dizzie

10:30 * dizzie kicks Romulus

10:30 <KathrynM> somehow it thought it was part of

10:30 <KathrynM> I think a hal update borked things.

10:30 <KathrynM> working now tho

10:30 <dizzie> Thats nice

10:31 <KathrynM> yeah, I thought I had either gotten infected with someting or f-ed something up myself

10:31 <dizzie> I ditched Gnome, running Openbox, memusage atm is less than 50MB

10:31 <KathrynM> nice

10:31 <dizzie> Hal is somewhat evil

10:31 <KathrynM> lol

10:31 <KathrynM> thinking of upgrading the box to F9 tho

10:32 <KathrynM> (doesn't every one spend their vacation screwing with their computers, lol)

10:32 <dizzie> Ever concidered giving Free/Open/Net- BSD a try?

10:32 <KathrynM> nope

10:32 <KathrynM> I'm having trouble enough with Linux :)

10:33 <dizzie> Well no, i spend my vacation building a FreeNAS server and my router was dead so i had to replace it. Nice vacation though :)

10:33 <KathrynM> :)

10:33 <dizzie> Well, somewhat FreeBSD is easier.

10:33 <dizzie> Not a zillion configfiles, /etc/rc.conf and /boot/loader.conf :)

10:34 <dizzie> Kernel is one txt file :)

10:34 <KathrynM> ugh, don't remind me, I have to fool with grub

10:34 <dizzie> I dare you :) Go on try

10:34 <KathrynM> lol

10:34 <dizzie> Grub is slow :)

10:34 <KathrynM> grub drives me nuts

10:35 <dizzie> Join the club?

10:35 <dizzie> :P

10:35 <KathrynM> I don't get it.  A fedora install trashes other linuxes in grub, but leaves Windows alone.  Kubuntu doesn't.

10:35 <KathrynM> I know how to fix it, I've not sat down to do it tho.

10:36 <KathrynM> It's not like I use Kubuntu all that much.

10:36 <dizzie> Can you use the F9 CD/DVD as a "rescue"/"live" CD?

10:36 <dizzie> Then.... grub-install (hdx)

10:36 <KathrynM> lol, yea, I did when I managed to render my system unbootable.

10:38 <dizzie> Reminds me of when i did a cvsup, no kernel was downloaded, so guess what :p

10:38 <KathrynM> uh oh

10:38 <KathrynM> no kernel is bad

10:38 <dizzie> I did a cd boot, jail, mount, compile+copy, etc :)

10:38 <dizzie> Was fun hehe

10:39 <dizzie> I learned my lesson, so i got a mini FreeBSD install on a usb stick :)

10:40 <KathrynM> :)

10:40 <KathrynM> yeah, twice now I've managed to make my system unbootable.  both times it was stupid stuff

10:40 <KathrynM> but hey, I learned from it.  which I guess is important.

10:41 <PovAdct_w> back in Windows 98, I once made the system unbootable too...

10:41 <PovAdct_w> broke it in a way that wouldn't boot on next reboot, and didn't notice

10:41 <PovAdct_w> then my dad was using it, something hanged (bluescreen I guess, as was common on Win98), he rebooted... didn't boot

10:42 <KathrynM> uh oh

10:42 <dizzie> Uhh black screen, i hate those

10:43 <PovAdct_w> and it was for doing something stupid :P

10:43 <KathrynM> I'm in good company then ;)

10:43 <dizzie> I bricked my macmini this weekend

10:43 <dizzie> Anyone want a $500 brick ?

10:43 <PovAdct_w> I'll buy that for a dollar

10:44 <dizzie> sure, you pay P&P then :p

10:44 <PovAdct_w> I ran an app under DOS mode (Windows backs up autoexec.bat, modifies it to run the app instead of booting Windows, then reboots)

10:45 <dizzie> Not to mention the nice instantreboots when a program barfs and dies

10:45 <PovAdct_w> while Windows was starting to reboot, I changed my mind about a command line switch, so I pressed Ctrl-Alt-Del and killed the app that makes Windows reboot

10:45 <dizzie> No BSOD or anything

10:45 <PovAdct_w> changed the switch, and ran it again

10:45 <PovAdct_w> bad idea

10:45 <dizzie> A bit :)

10:46 <PovAdct_w> on first try, Windows moved autoexec.bat to autoexec.bak (backup), and modified autoexec.bat to run the app, restore backup, and reboot; but I killed it before it rebooted

10:47 <PovAdct_w> on second try, Windows moved the already-modified autoexec.bat to autoexec.bak (overwriting the real backup!)

10:48 <dizzie> Oops :p

10:48 <dizzie> Bit like mv * /dev/null :)

10:48 <KathrynM> eek

17:14 <Jester45> when i first setup boinc i got 8 WU with 4 active. now i have 12, is this because boinc is learning that my computer is able to do more or is it just that it got 12

17:14 <MTughan> You have a quad-core?

17:15 <Jester45> 2 dual cores

17:15 <Jester45> 4 cores total

17:15 <MTughan> Yeah, BOINC's probably finding that it can do more work, or the project just didn't have much work when you first attached.

17:15 <Jester45> rosetta@home if that helps

17:16 <Jester45> it takes about 3 hours per wu

17:17 <MTughan> I don't crunch Rosetta, but I can check how many WUs are available.

17:18 <MTughan> Well, 15,000+ ready to send... Could just be BOINC was seeing how fast your computer was, although I imagine it would've grabbed more for 4 cores.

17:18 <Jester45> it mean it doesnt bother me to much i was just wondering why it was 8 and now 12

17:18 <PovAddict> maybe the estimate was wrong

17:19 <Jester45> i did just get it setup late last night/ early this morning

17:19 <PovAddict> once it finished a WU, it knows how much it really took vs how much the project said it would take; then it used that factor to correct for the rest

17:19 <PovAddict> OR

17:19 <PovAddict> now you got shorter WUs

17:20 <PovAddict> so it's more WUs but same number of hours total :)

17:22 <Jester45> also other than using a caching proxy if there a way to reduce network useage? in a month or so im going to be setting up a lot of machines to crunch... nighttime speed is noproblem but during the day its limited (i will set it to download only around 12:00)

17:22 <Jester45> i love having boinc info displayed via conky

17:22 <PovAddict> caching proxy is the way :)

17:23 <Jester45> or are most data diffrent other than the first downloads

17:23 <PovAddict> depends on the project

17:24 <PovAddict> but as a general rule: first time you attach it downloads the application (which may be big)

17:24 <Jester45> ill be setting up ~10 pentium 4s @2.4ghz about 512mb each that will run pretty much only boinc

17:24 <PovAddict> and maybe also some big files used for *all* workunits

17:24 <Jester45> maybe a few fast p3s or smp p3 systems

17:25 <Jester45> and add maybe 5 core duos

17:25 <Jester45> i wish i could cluster them all but... many will be windows based

17:26 <Jester45> they are computers at my school

19:47 *** TF|Gone has quit IRC

19:58 <nickuwo> so if I edit the server-side C file like assimilator.C, then do ./configure and make, it should build my assimilator, correct?

19:58 <PovAddict> you don't touch assimilator.C

19:58 <nickuwo> no?

19:58 <Romulus> no is I supposed to, nickuwo

19:59 <PovAddict> to make an assimilator, you write a whole new file (maybe based on sample_assimilator.C) and compile it along with assimilator.C

19:59 <nickuwo> "compile it along with"?

19:59 <PovAddict> compile one, compile the other, link them together

19:59 <PovAddict> or just pass both filenames to g++ to do it in one step

20:00 <nickuwo> hmm

20:01 *** TheFons has joined #boinc

20:10 <PovAddict> pong

20:10 <KathrynM> you've built the manager?

20:10 <PovAddict> synecdoche one; I'm not sure if I tried official BOINC one but should work just as well

20:10 <KathrynM> what do I need in terms of wxwidgets?

20:11 <PovAddict> any idea if you have anything already?

20:11 <KathrynM> no idea

20:11 <PovAddict> type "wx-config" on console

20:11 <PovAddict> usage info -> you have it; command not found -> you don't

20:11 <xcamel> wxw v 2.6, IIRC

20:11 <KathrynM> don't got it

20:11 <KathrynM> (yes, I am an English teacher :/)

20:12 <KathrynM> I don't have it.

20:32 <CoderForLife> sorry KathrynM = ice cream all gone

20:32 * KathrynM pouts

20:33 <KathrynM> hmph.  CoderForLife ate it all

20:34 <CoderForLife> bwaa haa ha

20:34 <CoderForLife> it was my reward for finishing the slides

20:35 <CoderForLife> I had to have some incentive for all that w@#%

20:35 <KathrynM> hey.  that's great

20:35 <KathrynM> PovAddict, so what do I need to install to get wxwidgets?

20:35 <CoderForLife> the corporate jet takes off at 7:30am

20:35 <PovAddict> name should be wxwidgets-dev or so

20:36 <xcamel>

20:36 <Romulus> Title: wxWidgets (at

20:36 <KathrynM> I see a lot of wxGTK stuff in yum

20:36 <PovAddict> xcamel: can get from yum instead

20:36 <xcamel>

20:36 <KathrynM> but nothing specifically wxwidgets

20:36 <CoderForLife> bbiab - got to pack my toothbrush and a change of undies for my one night trip

20:37 <xcamel> I had to install it from source

20:37 *** Jester45 has quit IRC

20:37 * Soul_keeper always installs it from source

20:37 <Soul_keeper> infact you can just compile it in it's dir, and tell boinc where it is during a boinc compile

20:37 <xcamel> yup

20:39 <PovAddict> then you need gtk-dev

20:39 <PovAddict> or compile gtk from source too, and gtk dependencies, and...

20:39 <KathrynM> wxGTK-devel.i386 ?]

20:39 <PovAddict> probably

20:39 * KathrynM will try

20:39 <xcamel> that would have most of it...

20:40 <xcamel> wxGTK-gl-2.8.7-2.fc7

20:40 <xcamel> wxPython-devel-

20:40 <xcamel> wxPython-

20:40 <Soul_keeper> wxBase-2.8.7-2.fc7   that's what she needs

20:40 <Soul_keeper> shouldn't need the rest

20:41 <PovAddict> the -devel is what she needs to compile BOINC from source

20:41 <PovAddict> which probably has wxGTK as a dependency, and wxGTK probably has wxBase as a dependency

20:41 <Soul_keeper> ok so she's compiling from source ?

20:41 <KathrynM> yes

20:42 <Soul_keeper> yeah i dunno what they put in fedora packages ...

20:43 <PovAddict> compiling BOINC from source, not wxwidgets

20:44 <Soul_keeper> ic

20:44 <KathrynM> is there dev stuff for open ssl?

20:44 <KathrynM> I couldn't find it yesterday

20:44 <KathrynM> got the libcurl dev stuff

20:45 <PovAddict> there should be

20:46 <KathrynM> openssl.i686 : The OpenSSL toolkit ?

20:46 <KathrynM> if so, it's already installed

20:46 <PovAddict> no dev? hmm

20:46 <KathrynM> never mind

20:46 <PovAddict> well, did you try BOINC configure script?

20:46 <KathrynM> i'm obviously blink

21:49 <PovAddict> I just printed from a Mac to a printer connected to this Linux machine

21:50 <PovAddict> using Windows printing protocol (samba running here)

21:51 <Jester45> why not use ipp

21:51 <PovAddict> because I need to print from Windows too

21:51 <xcamel> or cups

21:51 <Jester45> windows can print to ipp

21:51 <PovAddict> xcamel: cups uses ipp

21:52 <xcamel> bingo.

21:56 <xcamel> laterz..
