IRC logs of #boinc for Sunday, 2008-09-14

00:14 <zombie67> net split?

00:15 <zombie67> [20:57]  * BadBarbarian ( has joined #boinc

00:15 <PovAddict> that's just them two with connection problems

00:15 <zombie67> you're up late!

00:15 <zombie67> oh

00:15 <PovAddict> I am up late

00:16 <BadBarbarian> sorry Zman OCing my quad

00:16 <zombie67> do you know when DA will release the client that will allow PS3GRID to run their GPU client as non-CPU?

00:16 <BadBarbarian> no overclocking my q6600

00:17 <PovAddict> I dunno

00:17 <BadBarbarian> lots of reboots involved

00:17 <zombie67> nic BB

00:17 <zombie67> nice

00:17 <PovAddict> there has been *zero* discussion of GPU-related development in mailing lists

00:17 <PovAddict> and then DA whines when somebody contributes a patch without previous discussion ._.

00:17 <zombie67> sounds familiar

00:18 <zombie67> when a project needs something, no support, so they end up having to develop the tools themselves

00:18 <PovAddict> I mean, DA has been actively working on GPU support on the client

00:18 <PovAddict> but no discussion about it

00:18 <PovAddict>

00:18 <zombie67> I bought a top of the line cuda card, and the creds are Sweeeeet

00:18 <Romulus> <> (at

00:19 <PovAddict> same for Charlie Fenton working on the multithreaded RPCs on the manager...

00:20 <PovAddict> I just keep seeing more and more (mostly bad) code being added... I have the feeling that there is *too* much private (off-list) communication going on between DA, Rom, and Charlie

00:22 <zombie67> Hah!  Freakin' hilarious!

00:23 <PovAddict> yeah all the comments on that ticket got interesting :)

00:23 <zombie67> is BOINC open source?

00:23 <zombie67> shouldn't all development

00:24 <PovAddict> strictly, open source just means the code is available

00:24 <zombie67> I mean, where are the project goals, milestones, schedules, tasks, owners...along with the progress against each?

00:25 <PovAddict> in the Trac tickets

00:25 <PovAddict> when they remember to

00:25 <PovAddict> and want to

00:25 <zombie67> tickets are not a roadmap or project plan

00:25 *** MTughan has quit IRC

00:26 <PovAddict> they are, since tickets can have a milestone and the Roadmap page in Trac tells you how many tickets for each milestone are still open

00:26 <PovAddict> however

00:26 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

00:26 <PovAddict> lots of stuff (GPU support, multithreaded RPCs) is never discussed, or put into a ticket

00:26 <PovAddict> or in the descriptive text for Milestones

00:26 <PovAddict> so they have a good tool (Trac) they aren't using

00:27 <zombie67> what a load of crap

00:27 <zombie67> project management is completely missing, aparrently.

00:27 <PovAddict> what specific problems would you like to see fixed? :)

00:27 <zombie67> with the current release?  Selecting multiple tasks, and acting on them

00:28 <PovAddict> huh, 6.2 doesn't have multiple task selection?

00:28 <zombie67> worse than not having them at all

00:28 <zombie67> sure it does, but it's broken

00:29 <zombie67> also multiple project selection doesn't work right either

00:30 <zombie67> task problems:

00:31 <zombie67> 1)  Select 20 tasks, and abort, then have to click okay/cancel 20 times

00:31 <PovAddict> fixed in synecdoche; next?

00:31 <zombie67> 2)  The tasks selected actually *change* going through the 20 pop-ups.

00:32 <zombie67> you can be clicking "okay" on tasks you never originally selected

00:32 <zombie67> as aborted tasks get reported, the selected tasks change

00:34 <Didactylos> Charlie fixed that, IIRC.

00:34 <Didactylos> In trunk, anyway.

02:14 <shirish> hi guys, I'm having a peculiar problem

02:15 <shirish> I want to have the file ca-bundle.crt and the one which my distro has doesn't work.

02:16 <shirish> anybody up?

02:17 *** desti has quit IRC

02:34 <Tank_Master>

02:34 <Romulus> Title: English Russia Darvaz: The Door to Hell (at

02:34 <Tank_Master> no, I aint up

02:35 <Soul_keeper> Wesnoth v1.4.5   that was fun

02:49 <shirish> I want to have the file ca-bundle.crt and the one which my distro has doesn't work.

02:53 <shirish> Tank_Master: Soul_keeper: guys

02:53 <Romulus> <> (at

02:53 <Tank_Master> what?

02:54 <shirish> Tank_Master: can you look that bug I gave b4 and tell me what to do

02:54 <shirish> I want the ca-bundle.crt file and the one which I have doesn't work

02:54 <Tank_Master> I know next to nothing about linux

02:54 <Soul_keeper> yeah i don't use that distro ...

02:54 <MTughan> shirish: For what?

02:54 <shirish> Tank_Master: ah ok

02:54 <Tank_Master> I prefer serevr 2008

02:54 <MTughan> Windows b*stard...

02:55 <Tank_Master> what?

02:55 <Soul_keeper> i just keep my old ca-bundle.crt and move it to new installs over the last 2yrs

02:55 <Soul_keeper> slackware here

02:55 <shirish> MTughan: I get this error "Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with known CA certificates."

02:55 <Tank_Master> I install it and it *gasp!* reconises all of my hardware out of the box!

02:55 <Tank_Master> never seen a linux install do that

02:55 <MTughan> If I knew more about the server side of BOINC I might be able to help you...

02:55 <shirish>

02:55 <Romulus> <> (at

02:55 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Yeah, it's called HAL.

02:56 <MTughan> Ah, I know why... shirish: That file shouldn't be needed unless you need an SSL connection from the client to the server.

02:56 <shirish> Tank_Master: its a driver issue what you are talking about but things are changing and for the beter

02:57 * Soul_keeper goes to sleep

02:57 <Tank_Master> bout frikin time

02:57 <shirish> MTughan: I'm member of WCG and it needs that

02:57 <Soul_keeper> yeah i don't think i'm needed here :)

02:57 *** hawmps_ has quit IRC

02:57 <Tank_Master> linux has only been around for what? 15 years?

02:57 *** hawmps_ has joined #boinc

02:58 <MTughan> Oh, it's the client that needs it...

02:58 <MTughan> Does the file here not help?

02:58 <Romulus> <> (at

02:58 <shirish> Tank_Master: correct, but it comes from the Unix heritage which is another 10-15 years old.

02:58 <shirish> MTughan: that file is over 2 years old. There should be a newer version

02:59 <MTughan> Does it matter if it works?

02:59 <shirish> MTughan: look at this comment

02:59 <Romulus> <> (at

03:00 <shirish> MTughan: it says many of the keys are expiring in the year 2008.

03:00 <MTughan> So I read... Let me see what my installation has.

03:00 <shirish> MTughan: thanx

03:01 <MTughan> All right. My ca-bundle.crt was last modified on January 15, 2007. I can communicate with WCG fine.

03:02 <shirish> MTughan: can you put up your ca-bundle.crt so I can use it

03:02 <shirish> somewhere on rapidshare or some other server.

03:02 <MTughan> One sec, let me compare the one BOINC has to mine.

03:03 <shirish> MTughan: sure

03:03 <MTughan> Yeah, they are different... Well, maybe mine will work. Should be platform independent (I'm on Mac).

03:04 <shirish> MTughan: it should, at worst it wouldn't

03:04 <MTughan> Yep. Give it a sec to upload...

03:04 <MTughan>

03:04 <Romulus> <> (at

03:06 <shirish> MTughan: yes, they are different, the md5sum are different

03:06 <MTughan> That's what I used, yeah.

03:06 <shirish> MTughan: now how do I symlink it

03:06 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

03:06 <MTughan> ln -s <actual path> <link path>

03:07 <MTughan> So can I delete it off the online server then?

03:08 <shirish> MTughan: definitely

03:08 <MTughan> Thanks.

03:09 <MTughan> I'll need to go to bed in a couple minutes... past 3AM here.

03:10 <shirish> MTughan: where is ca-bundle.crt in your system?

03:10 <MTughan> Won't help you, but /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data.

03:13 <shirish> MTughan: found it, its in /var/lib/boinc-client/ but its symlinked file

03:13 <shirish> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root  root      34 2008-07-20 08:23 ca-bundle.crt -> /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

03:13 <MTughan> Uh, I wouldn't touch that...

03:13 <MTughan> Just replace the symlink with the actual file for now.

03:17 <shirish> ok did that, let's say what happens now

03:18 <MTughan> Try and finish this quickly. I'd like to help you, but it is getting late.

03:20 <shirish> MTughan: I did it, I tried running boincmgr but didn't get anywhere

03:20 <shirish> MTughan: even running boinc, I get some very strange results

03:21 <shirish> MTughan: look at

03:21 <Romulus> Title: Ubuntu Pastebin (at

03:23 <MTughan> Or are you trying to connect to WCG?

03:24 <shirish> I'm trying to connect to WCG, lemme try again, this time with boincmgr

03:25 <MTughan> Bye TM.

03:25 <Tank_Master> buy MT

03:25 <Tank_Master> :P

03:25 <MTughan> You want to buy me? How much?!

03:26 <Tank_Master> ill give you your 2c worth

03:26 <MTughan> I'd need more than $0.02... :P

03:26 <MTughan> Night.

03:26 <Tank_Master> tc

03:26 <shirish> MTughan: I get this when I try to do the same with boincmgr

03:26 *** hawmps_ has quit IRC

03:26 *** hawmps_ has joined #boinc

03:27 <MTughan> That's not a problem with the certificate. The manager can't load the core client...

03:27 <MTughan> Not sure what error 13 is.

03:27 <MTughan> &boincerr 13

03:27 <Romulus> MTughan: Error: I couldn't find 13 in boincerr.

03:27 <MTughan> Neither does Rommie...

03:27 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

03:28 *** siof is now known as siofwolves

03:28 <shirish> MTughan: right, that's understood, although why I have no idea.

03:28 <shirish> MTughan: b4 it didn't give that error.

03:29 <MTughan> Try starting boinc as you were before, but with the --redirectio --launched_by_manager flags.

03:29 <MTughan> As in the error message.

03:29 <MTughan> Unless the "Connection refused" is the error... Do you still have that process from before running?

03:30 <shirish> MTughan: what do you mean process from before?

03:30 <MTughan> You had posted what happened when you did "boinc" in your home directory, where I had pointed out that you weren't attached to any projects.

03:32 <shirish> MTughan: right, I killed it Then started the new one all over again using boincmgr

03:32 <MTughan> Is there any other BOINC process running? Try

03:32 <MTughan> Damn Enter... "ps aux | grep boinc"

03:33 <shirish> MTughan: result

03:33 <shirish> shirish   3982  3.5  3.0  51416 19620 pts/4    S+   13:02   0:01 boincmgr --verbose

03:33 <shirish> shirish   4022  0.0  0.1   3236   788 pts/5    S+   13:03   0:00 grep boinc

03:33 <shirish> so doesn't seem any other process is there.

03:33 <MTughan> Indeed...

03:34 <shirish> also the flag which it gave --redirectio doesn't work

03:34 <MTughan> "boinc --redirectio" doesn't work?

03:34 <shirish> MTughan: nope :(

03:35 <MTughan> Is there anything in stderrdae.txt?

03:36 <shirish> MTughan: nothing :(

03:36 <MTughan> How about stdoutdae.txt or stderrgui.txt? If there's nothing, something's definitely wrong...

03:37 <shirish> stdoutdae.txt is there, it has stuff but that's from a week ago.

03:37 <MTughan> And stderrgui.txt?

03:37 <shirish> MTughan: nope, nothing of that sort.

03:38 <MTughan> Well... Sorry, without more time (and less fatigue), I can't help you right now. Give me a couple hours and I should be fine. Of course, someone else who could help you will probably drop in by that point... But you get the idea.

03:38 <shirish> MTughan: perhaps I should uninstall it and call the one from the boinc site.

03:38 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

03:38 <shirish> MTughan: Of course, understand that fully.

03:39 <MTughan> Thanks...

16:31 *** ergZay has joined #boinc

16:32 <ergZay> im trying to use remote control setting in boinc to control another computer on my home network

16:32 <ergZay> both are running mac os x

16:33 <ergZay> i have a password set in the passwords file and also my local ip address which im connecting from in the list of allowed ip address (is that even needed on a LAN?)

16:33 <PovAddict> yes it's needed on a LAN too

16:33 <ergZay> but when i try and connect to the ip of the computer im connecting to it just sits there

16:33 <PovAddict> if remote_hosts.cfg is empty or  doesn't exist, only localhost connections are allowed

16:33 <PovAddict> did you restart BOINC after adding/changing those files?

16:34 <ergZay> yes multiple times, i havent restarted the computer but i quit the manager and reopened it

16:34 <PovAddict> if it just sits there instead of giving an error, I'd suspect there is a firewall causing problems

16:34 <ergZay> does the manager on the machine im connecting to have to be off?

16:34 <PovAddict> no, you can have dozens of managers (on the same machine or not) connected to the same client

16:35 <PovAddict> with no problems other than speed :)

16:35 <ergZay> i think it may be the firewall actually

16:35 <ergZay> what port does it connect by default?

16:35 <PovAddict> 31416

16:35 <PovAddict> Pi

16:36 <ergZay> ah nice

16:37 <ergZay> yay it works

16:37 <ergZay> thx

16:37 <ergZay> for some reason that didnt occur to me

16:37 <PovAddict> used to be 1043 (even registered in IANA as such), but some people had problems with some stupid Windows service opening that port number

16:37 <ergZay> i think it was because i had gotten used to this new laptop's new firewall schme which is completely different from mac os x 10.3 firewall setup scheme

16:37 <ergZay> 10.5 uses applicaiton selection while 10.3 uses port selection

16:37 <PovAddict> the client wouldn't even start because the port was in use by another program (the stupid Windows service)

16:37 <ergZay> atleast in the guis

16:38 <ergZay> its generally advised to use above port what is it

16:38 <PovAddict> above 1024

16:39 <ergZay> ah so it was

16:39 <PovAddict> that's why Windows is Doing It Wrong

16:39 <ergZay> yea

16:39 <ergZay> well whats different

16:39 <ergZay> windows is windows

16:39 <ergZay> always will be

16:39 <PovAddict> :)

16:39 <ergZay> its why the smart ppl use linux

16:39 <ergZay> or mac os x

16:39 <docteh> :o

16:39 <PovAddict> BOINC developers got 1043 as an official port assignment from IANA

16:39 <ergZay> which is almost linux

16:39 <ergZay> but with pretty gui

16:39 <docteh> <3 vista

16:39 <PovAddict> eww

16:39 * ergZay kills docteh

16:39 <ergZay> vista = worst windows ever created

16:40 <PovAddict> ergZay: you haven't used Windows ME then

16:40 <ergZay> tied with maybe windows original

16:40 <ergZay> ME is just a better 98 isnt it?

16:40 <efc> Apparently, their only error was not calling it Windows Barcelona or whatever that other name was

16:40 <efc> according to their commercial

16:40 <docteh> ME was worse than 98se

16:40 <ergZay> o rly?

16:40 <ergZay> i never used ME yea

16:41 <ergZay> ive used 3.1 95, 98, a little NT, 2000, and xp

16:41 <PovAddict> all of 95/98/ME was crap anyway :)

16:41 <ergZay> and used vista at a friend's house

16:41 <DerMeister> vista is quite nice, actually

16:41 <PovAddict> NT kernel is WAY better than Win95

16:41 <docteh> with the UAC on or off ergZay?

16:41 <ergZay> UAC?

16:41 <Romulus> Rumor has it UAC is the most hateful thing in Vista - if Vista wasn't so annoyingly diffferent and unstable, it would be reason enough to steer clear, ergZay

16:41 <PovAddict> see, even the bot knows it

16:42 <DerMeister> ^^

16:42 <docteh> noob

16:42 <ergZay> my family had avoided windows as much as possible since i was young

16:42 <PovAddict> ergZay: lucky you

16:42 <ergZay> i grew up on macs, heck my father bought his first mac in 1986 or so 2 years after it came out

16:42 <docteh> whats this have to do with vista sucking?

16:43 <docteh> that just proves that you're biased against windows

16:43 <ergZay> i love everything about macs except for two major gripes, 1. price of computers, 2. apple not updating their open source stuff fast enough

16:43 <PovAddict> I have an heterogeneous network

16:43 <ergZay> windows i dont like much about

16:44 <ergZay> linux i use as well

16:44 <PovAddict> my machine running Linux (Kubuntu), my sister's machine running WinXP, and my dad's PowerBook running OS X Tiger

16:44 <ergZay> but not as a home computer

16:44 <docteh> I just like playing games on windows

16:44 <ergZay> macs play windows games fine now

16:44 <PovAddict> that made for some fun setting up a network printer :)

16:44 <ergZay> use get crossover

16:44 <ergZay> just*

16:44 * PovAddict doesn't play many games

16:45 <ergZay> but i dont want to think bout games right now

16:45 <PovAddict> and when I do, they're the kind of games you could find Flash-based on a website, or that already have an open source clone

16:45 <ergZay> every time ive thought about games over the last few days my head keeps bringing up my reocuring nightmare

16:45 <ergZay> spore

16:45 <docteh> haw

16:45 <ergZay> the game i waited with baited breath for 4 long years

16:45 <PovAddict> not the current GPU-eating Windows-only games

16:45 <ergZay> for them to release the largest piece of crap game that ive ever seen made

16:46 <ergZay> the Alpha of spore they showed in 2005 was a better game than the one they released here in late 2008

16:46 <ergZay> marketing branches....

16:46 * ergZay shoots EA marketing repeatedly

16:47 <ergZay> anyway enough ranting

16:47 <PovAddict> yeah stay on-topic

16:47 <ergZay> btw the topic says Romulus is & but it doesnt seem to be

16:47 <PovAddict> rant about waiting long months for BOINC 6.x for them to release a large piece of crap :)

16:48 <PovAddict> ergZay: he is

16:48 <PovAddict> &ping

16:48 <Romulus> pong

16:48 <docteh> chatrooms that stay 100% on topic aren't interesting

16:48 <PovAddict> docteh: chatrooms that stay 70% off-topic talking about US politics aren't interesting either

16:48 <PovAddict> *cough*

16:49 <ergZay> im debating on switching to useing an online manager and running boinc as a daemon on all my  machines

16:49 <ergZay> is the online manager nice?

16:49 <docteh> well we're not in #debian

16:49 <docteh> so i dont see a problem about US politics

16:49 <PovAddict> ergZay: online manager?

16:49 <ergZay>

16:49 <Romulus> Title: Account managers - BOINC (at

16:49 <ergZay> those

16:49 <PovAddict> those just let you attach and detach projects

16:50 <ergZay> no direct control?

16:50 <PovAddict> and take at least an hour to take effect

16:50 <ergZay> ah

16:50 <PovAddict> (when the client contacts the account manager)

16:50 <ergZay> so no one really uses them?

16:50 <PovAddict> lots of people do

16:50 <ergZay> what do you guys use for managing multiple boinc computers?

16:50 <PovAddict> account managers are better when you have dozens of computers you can't easily access

16:51 <ergZay> i was just wondering for using it to control my two computers at home while im on campus

16:51 <PovAddict> that could work yeah

16:52 <ergZay> also trying to find a nice balance for cpu usage point for my mac computers

16:52 <PovAddict> laptops?

16:52 <ergZay> as one of them is a laptop turned desktop that i no longer use as ive got this new MBP

16:52 <ergZay> i dont get why apple cant make cool laptops

16:53 <ergZay> ive heard about maybe its the missapplication of cpu grease

16:53 <ergZay> heat sync grease*

16:53 <ergZay> but really

16:53 <ergZay> this MBP of mine

16:53 <ergZay> is runnning at 80C

16:53 <ergZay> around

16:53 <docteh> C?

16:53 <Romulus> I guess C is for Cookie :), docteh

16:54 <ergZay> celcius

16:54 <ergZay> celsius*

16:54 <docteh> i thought that stuff was rated for 70 celcius tho

16:54 <ergZay> well thats my graphics card

16:54 <ergZay> which is at 78C atm while running boinc

16:54 <ergZay> when i game it hits 82C

16:55 <ergZay> the CPU A temperature diode is at 76C

16:55 <ergZay> and there are three "main heatsink" temperature sensors which im not sure where they are located

16:56 <ergZay> anyway it runs hot

16:56 <ergZay> when im at home i use a piece of cardboard the size of the laptop bottom that i use underneath it to separate my lap from it

16:56 <BadBarbarian> my q6600 is oced to 3 gig and running 60c crunching

16:57 <ergZay> thats a desktop isnt it though?

16:57 <ergZay> dont know what a q6600 is

16:57 <BadBarbarian> yes i have a fan cooler for my lappy

16:57 <BadBarbarian> 2.4 gig intel quad

16:57 <ergZay> xeon?

16:58 <BadBarbarian> of cold plate if you want to call it

16:58 <BadBarbarian> no

16:58 <ergZay> this laptop has intel core 2 duo 2.5

16:58 <BadBarbarian> let me get you a lonk to my lappy cooler

16:58 <BadBarbarian> link

16:58 <ergZay> you overlocked your laptop though?

16:59 <ergZay> hardware or software?

16:59 <ergZay> i haven't seen many laptops getting overclocked

17:01 <BadBarbarian> yes theres an xp software that lets you oc a lappy

17:38 <nickuwo> I believe it's a combination of what boinc had determined your system can handle based upon the benchmarks it runs, and your settings

17:42 <DerMeister> ... and some more factors like the duration correction factor...

17:42 <DerMeister> and host efficiency and uptime...
