08:53 <Welshman> cool, I used to be a shepherd

08:56 <Welshman> not a lot of money in wool these days in the UK

08:57 <Welshman> why I dont know because it aint cheep to buy a pure wool jumper

08:57 <Welshman> *cheap

08:58 <Welshman> looks a good event

08:59 <Welshman> kemp is important for a good fleece

09:02 <Welshman> farmers used to say that the wool harvest would pay for the rent of the land, not any more

09:05 <Welshman> the wikipedia entry for kemp is wrong

10:23 <Crewsr3> I would like to connect to a remote computer and manage the boinc from my local machine

10:26 <Crewsr3> how to remote connect

10:26 <Crewsr3> Romulus, how to remote connect

10:26 <Romulus> Crewsr3: Are you daft?

10:27 <Crewsr3> no

10:32 <KathrynM> Crewsr3,

10:32 <Romulus> <> (at

10:33 <Crewsr3> KathrynM, I've been reading this and I'm not sure how to allow the RPC, that is, I don't know how to set that up

10:33 <Crewsr3> can you help me out

10:34 <Crewsr3> I'm not very good at the CLI, I have an SSH terminal to the computer, how do I adjust the remote gui rpc file

11:00 <Welshman> if your at ssh I recommend you cd to /etc/boinc-client for starters

11:03 <Welshman> as a matter of fact I findboinc_cmd to be enough without a gui

11:05 <Crewsr3> Welshman, Ok I am in the directory

11:05 <Welshman> ok, type this

11:05 <Welshman> boinc_cmd --get_state

11:05 <Welshman> tells you what exactly is going on

11:06 <Welshman> have a look at that and then type boinc_cmd --help

11:06 <Welshman> and have a good look at the choices

11:06 <Welshman> then experiment a bit :)

11:06 <Crewsr3> ok it has a long output showing me sections

11:06 <Crewsr3> thanks for your help

11:07 <Welshman> your welcome

11:07 <Crewsr3> It is connected to the project of my choice

11:07 <Welshman> I am quite new myself

11:08 <Welshman> the --get_state is basically what you see in the gui on a desktop, if you look at

11:08 <Welshman> just without buttons lol

11:09 <Welshman> and the --get_help are the commands that replace the buttons

11:09 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

11:10 <Welshman> boinc_cmd --project update is what I use to update

11:10 <Romulus> Title: Rosetta@home (at

11:10 <Welshman> the word update being replaced to do different actions

11:10 <Welshman> suspend

11:10 <Welshman> detach

11:10 <Welshman> no more work

11:10 <Welshman> allow more work etc etc

11:11 <Welshman> I have a text file on my desktop with all the commands I need and I just cut and paste :)

11:11 *** [RKN]frost has joined #boinc

11:13 <Crewsr3> Welshman, This is what I have been looking for

11:13 <Welshman> look and you will find :)

11:13 <Crewsr3> I think I started up my project

11:13 <Welshman> good

11:13 <Welshman> make sure the run mode is on auto

11:14 <Welshman> if for some reason it runs out of work it will snooze

11:14 <Welshman> then when more work is available it will start up again

11:14 <Welshman> I use the update command mostly

11:15 <Welshman> do you have webmin on your server?

11:15 <Welshman> or some other admin gui

11:16 <Crewsr3> I just set it to auto (i think)

11:16 <Welshman> well check it

11:16 <Crewsr3> I do have webmin, I was looking for a modual for it

11:16 <Welshman> there is a command for that

11:17 <Welshman> I mentioned webmin because if you go to system you can click running processes and see boinc working away at the top

11:17 <Welshman> or just type top in ssh

11:18 <Welshman> boinc_cmd --get_run_mode

11:20 <Crewsr3> it does not like the "--get_run_mode

11:20 <Crewsr3> Webmin does show it working

11:21 <Welshman> what happens with the get run mode command

11:21 <Crewsr3> unrecognized command --get_run_mode

11:22 <Welshman> oh

11:22 <Welshman> what version you got and OS?

11:22 <Crewsr3> boinc 5.10.45 on ubuntu 8.04

11:23 <Welshman> ok

11:23 <Crewsr3> u?

11:23 <Welshman> 5.4.11 Debian 4.0 here

11:25 <Welshman> with Rosetta I can login to the website and change boinc settings there too and when the server connects with Rosetta they get changed

11:29 <Crewsr3> Welshman, Thanks again this has been very helpful

11:29 <Welshman> np

11:30 <Crewsr3> I have different profiles set up at the Rosetta websit

11:31 <Welshman> I find if you work from the /etc/boinc-client dir you do not get auth 155 errors

11:32 <Welshman> because the key is in that dir

11:32 <Crewsr3> that is the dir that I am in

11:33 <Welshman> I always cd to it

11:33 <Welshman> when your at root you can type boinc -help and see other info

11:34 <Welshman> put them all in a text file for easy ref

11:35 <Welshman> if your a dapper with the keyboard then there is no need :)

11:36 <Crewsr3> Thanks for this tip, I just pasted into a doc

11:36 <Welshman> :)

11:36 <Welshman> anything for an easy life

11:40 <Welshman> just back from walking the dog actually, I need a shower back later

11:40 <Crewsr3> take care and thanks again

11:54 <Welshman> actually at root boinc  -allow_remote_gui_rpc is what you were after

11:54 <Welshman> you can also set the port

11:55 <Welshman> boinc  -gui_rpc_port

11:55 <Welshman> I have not done that

11:55 <Welshman> does that mean I can have the info in my desktop gui

11:56 <Welshman> I thought the desktop gui connects to one pc at a time though?

12:01 <Welshman> getting a lot of rpc binding failures

12:01 <Welshman> 2008-10-19 18:01:58 [---] Remote control allowed

12:01 <Welshman> 2008-10-19 18:01:58 [---] GUI RPC bind failed: -1

12:01 <Welshman> 2008-10-19 18:01:58 [---] GUI RPC bind failed: -1

12:01 <Welshman> gstate.init() failed: -180

12:03 <Crewsr3> I'm going to try it

12:07 <Welshman> I just messed things up

12:07 <Welshman> I would find a good help website first

12:08 <Welshman> I got it listening on a port but could not connect

12:08 <Crewsr3> I have not had any luck with the remote gui connection

12:08 <Welshman> interesting though :)

12:08 <quail> meep meep

12:08 <Welshman> live and learn

12:08 <Crewsr3> I'm going to get better at the CLI that is what I want to do anyways

12:08 <Welshman> trying again

12:09 *** nickuwo has quit IRC

12:10 <quail> Crewsr3: you want to get better with cli and have some fun at the same time, look at this url =>

22:00 <Tank_Master> :P

22:00 <Tank_Master> not much really, just d/ling more songs

22:01 <nickuwo> worth a try

22:01 <nickuwo> what songs?

22:01 <Tank_Master> :)

22:01 <Tank_Master> trance

22:03 <nickuwo> cool, r u a raver?

22:03 <Tank_Master> looks like I still have a few hundered of ramsey WUs left

22:03 <nickuwo> will that put you at a mil?

22:04 <Tank_Master> but I dont think ill finish them by tomorrow night

22:04 <Tank_Master> not even close

22:04 <Tank_Master> Im <300k right now

22:04 <Tank_Master> no, I dont go to rave parties, just like the music :P

22:05 <Tank_Master> will I get credit for work returned after the deadline?

22:05 <nickuwo> hehe, i c.

22:05 <nickuwo> after the wu's deadline?

22:05 <Tank_Master> yeah

22:06 <nickuwo> hmm... prolly not. I think the server reissues them out if they don't come back by the deadline

22:06 <Tank_Master> yeah

22:06 <Tank_Master> though you can extend the deadline...

22:06 <Tank_Master> ;)

22:07 <nickuwo> hehe

22:07 <nickuwo> just cancel, then recontact the server asap, you'll prolly be able to snag 'em b4 anyone else does :)

22:07 <Tank_Master> I know you love messing with the DB

22:08 <Tank_Master> no

22:08 <Tank_Master> doent work like that

22:08 <Tank_Master> once a WU has been issued to a host or user (depending on the setting) it wont ever be sent back

22:09 <nickuwo> bummer

22:09 * nickuwo hates his db :)

22:10 <nickuwo> slightly less than i used to tho

22:10 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

22:11 <Tank_Master> getting used to it?

22:11 <Tank_Master> or just giving up on it?

22:12 <nickuwo> haha, getting used to it I guess. I have to do some sql for my job as well, tsql, but close enough

22:12 <Tank_Master> ahh

22:12 <Tank_Master> fun stuff

22:13 <nickuwo> ya. I always thought doing what you like for a job would be awesome... but it makes doing what you like when your not working fell like you are at work :(

22:13 <nickuwo> *feel*
