11:39 <yoyo[RKN]> please post content of stdout to http://yoyo.pastebin.com/

11:39 <Romulus> Title: yoyo private pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at yoyo.pastebin.com)

11:39 <MTughan> All right. Just starting it up now.

11:41 <MTughan> How long should I wait for graphics?

11:41 <yoyo[RKN]> should start immediate

11:41 <yoyo[RKN]> just start it 1 minute after the wrapper

11:41 <MTughan> Okay...

11:42 <MTughan> &math 255 - 162

11:42 <Romulus> MTughan: 93

11:42 <MTughan> Hmm... Graphics works fine, but no titlebar.

11:42 <MTughan> It flickers, but I would expect that running Compiz.

11:43 <yoyo[RKN]> shows it 2 boincing boxes?

11:43 <yoyo[RKN]> bouncing

11:43 <MTughan> Yep.

11:43 <yoyo[RKN]> with content?

11:43 <MTughan> CPU time is a little odd though... It's increasing, but it resets back to 0:00:00.0 every half second.

11:44 <yoyo[RKN]> think it s because of missing boinc environment

11:44 <MTughan> Same with percentage? After 4 minutes, still at all zeroes.

11:46 <MTughan> One question too: it's written in OpenGL?

11:46 <yoyo[RKN]> yes

11:46 <MTughan> Okay, that's fine then. Looks the same as an OpenGL racing game I have. Compiz bug.

11:50 <MTughan> Still no output and no progress indicated after 10 minutes.

11:51 <yoyo[RKN]> can you post content of stdout file?

11:52 <MTughan> http://yoyo.pastebin.com/m6bccfd6d

11:52 <Romulus> Title: yoyo private pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at yoyo.pastebin.com)

11:53 <MTughan> CPU name is off, but I wouldn't expect that to interfere.

11:53 <yoyo[RKN]> at least it is running

11:53 <MTughan> Oh yeah, it's using CPU time. Just not being reflected.

12:00 <MTughan> I'll probably be able to monitor it for another 45 minutes, and then I have more classes.

12:02 <yoyo[RKN]> can you keep it running until the end?

12:03 <MTughan> I can keep it running after I'm gone, I just won't be here 3h after it started.

12:03 <yoyo[RKN]> hmm

12:03 <yoyo[RKN]> ok,but now I know that it is running

12:04 <MTughan> 64-bit machine too, so the 32-bit libs are working fine.

16:30 <Tank_Master> likw the 45nm core2?

16:30 <MTughan> 2.53GHz clock.

16:31 <MTughan> Unless CPU scaling can take that down too...

16:31 <yoyo[RKN]> I do not have much processor knowledge

16:31 <PovAddict> MTughan: is your CPU scaled down?!

16:31 <MTughan> Nope, it's fine.

16:43 <MTughan> Ah, that's why it's high priority... 1 day deadline, 36h estimate.

16:44 <yoyo[RKN]> it was running nearly 5h

16:44 <MTughan> My next task isn't due until the 20th anyway, so I'm good for a while.

16:44 <PovAddict> fix j00r estimates!

16:44 <MTughan> I know, but estimates are off.

16:44 <PovAddict> MTughan: can you check your duration correction factor?

16:44 <MTughan> client_state.xml?

16:46 <PovAddict> and I can't exactly aim correctly

16:47 <MTughan> Oops... 12h deadline. Couldn't see the AM/PM.

16:48 <MTughan> 5h should be fine though.

16:48 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC

16:48 <yoyo[RKN]> yes in test period 12h deadline

16:49 <MTughan> I guess it's dnetc that does the work?

16:49 <yoyo[RKN]> yes

16:49 <MTughan> Okay, just checking. Because the other's are 32-bit. :P

16:49 <yoyo[RKN]> jup, but they do not crunch

16:50 <MTughan> I know.

16:52 <yoyo[RKN]> you should see something in stdout

16:52 <MTughan> In BOINC's dir?

16:52 <yoyo[RKN]> in slot dir

16:53 <MTughan> It's a BOINC soft link to the projects dir.

16:53 <yoyo[RKN]> argh

16:53 <yoyo[RKN]> yes

16:54 <MTughan> Yep, looks basically the same as the first paste I put up.

16:54 <CoderForLife> home again - some quick chores outside before dark, and before the weather becomes not so nice

16:54 <MTughan> Last message is "1 cruncher has been started".

16:54 <MTughan> 'lo CFL

16:55 <yoyo[RKN]> should be something in that a 64 bit Linux is detected

16:55 <MTughan> Not that I see.

16:56 <yoyo[RKN]> hmm

16:56 *** Soul_keeper has joined #boinc

17:00 <PovAddict> drops applied

17:00 <MTughan> 14 minutes... Nice.

17:00 <PovAddict> no I just took long to say it here

17:00 <MTughan> So 12 minutes?

17:00 <PovAddict> and I also got distracted with an email and "continued trying later" :P

17:01 <MTughan> Heh.

17:01 <PovAddict> anyone here with Fedora? I want to know if the distro packages for BOINC actually give a 64-bit BOINC that can get 64-bit workunits

17:02 <MTughan> yoyo[RKN]: You mean it should detect 64-bit Linux at the same place it printed it found a C2E/Xeon before?

17:02 <PovAddict> (IIRC, on Debian the package is broken, it sets an empty string as platform name so it can't get work from ANYWHERE)

17:02 <MTughan> PovAddict: Yes, but BOINC already installed.

17:02 <PovAddict> MTughan: installed using other means?

17:02 <MTughan> Downloaded, ran under my account for a couple days, then I sandboxed it manually.

17:02 <PovAddict> (other than "yum install" I mean)

17:02 <PovAddict> k

17:03 <KathrynM> want me to email the packager?

17:03 <PovAddict> KathrynM has done so many reinstalls using different methods that she probably knows

17:03 <PovAddict> lol there she is

17:03 <KathrynM> :)

17:03 <KathrynM> Never did it on the 64 bit box

17:03 <KathrynM> yum install boinc that is

17:03 <PovAddict> not too important, it's for the wiki

17:03 <MTughan> KathrynM: I can sort of walk you through installing and sandboxing it. I also made an init script for it. :D

17:05 <MTughan> Also, I didn't have to make any change I was aware of to get 32-bit apps running on 64-bit F8.

17:06 <MTughan> Hmm... I can always try 64-bit F8 in QEMU. It'll support x86_64 emulation.

17:06 <KathrynM> I already have it sandboxed and starting on boot.

17:06 <KathrynM> Followed Eric Myers' directions :)

17:06 <MTughan> Cool.

17:06 <MTughan> Where's that? I basically did it myself?

17:09 <PovAddict> invalid regex

17:09 <yoyo[RKN]> I thought it, yes, MTughan

17:09 <MTughan> PovAddict: I know, but the last is supposed to be a period.

17:10 <MTughan> Well, his way of checking for a running client is better than me... I use ps and two greps.

17:11 * KathrynM doesn't pretend to understand the init script

17:16 <KathrynM> PovAddict, what the name of the energy saving thing in *buntu that scales the processor back

17:16 <MTughan> The governors?

17:16 <KathrynM> yeah

17:16 <PovAddict> there's probably a command for it but I didn't find it

17:16 <PovAddict> well, didn't search for it ;)

17:16 <KathrynM> I vagely remember there being a gui thing

17:16 <MTughan> It should be controlled by the cpuspeed daemon.

17:17 <MTughan> KathrynM: I have a GNOME menu applet.

17:17 * KathrynM doesn't care for Gnome or *buntu

17:17 <MTughan> "CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor"

17:18 <MTughan> Fedora's default is GNOME.

17:18 <KathrynM> which is why I grab the KDE version

17:18 <MTughan> I went looking through KDE a couple days ago, didn't find anything.

17:18 <KathrynM> I've  not had the throttling back thing on Fedora

17:18 <MTughan> What version?

17:18 <Romulus> It has been said that What version are you using now, MTughan

17:18 <KathrynM> F9

17:18 <KathrynM> actually F7-9

17:19 <MTughan> Hmm... F8 has it, so I would think 9 would too.

17:19 <MTughan> What procs?

17:19 <PovAddict> /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

17:19 <PovAddict> I posted

17:19 <MTughan> "userspace" is what mine has.

17:19 <MTughan> Probably because of the scaling applet.

17:19 <KathrynM> wtf

17:20 <KathrynM> permission denied

17:20 <KathrynM> even as root?

17:20 <PovAddict> as root you can't cat that?

17:20 <MTughan> You can't run it...

17:20 <KathrynM> there's not cat

17:20 <PovAddict> KathrynM: it's a text file, not a program

17:20 <KathrynM> *sigh*

17:20 <KathrynM> ondemand

17:21 <PovAddict> !

17:21 <KathrynM> wha?

17:21 <MTughan> KathrynM: cat /proc/cpuinfo

17:21 <MTughan> What's the speed?

17:21 <PovAddict> see scaling_cur_freq and scaling_max_freq in the same directory

17:21 <KathrynM> model name      : Genuine Intel(R) CPU           T2300  @ 1.66GHz

17:21 <KathrynM> stepping        : 8

17:21 <KathrynM> cpu MHz         : 1667.000

17:22 <MTughan> Your applications are running with nice -19?

17:22 <KathrynM> yup

17:22 <PovAddict> nice -19 is the highest priority...

17:22 <MTughan> Or default nice?

17:22 <CoderForLife> baaaack

17:22 <MTughan> 19 then, sorry.

17:22 <KathrynM> err 19

17:22 <Soul_keeper> -20 is highest :)

17:22 <PovAddict> heh

17:22 <MTughan> lol

17:22 <Soul_keeper> well besides rt

17:23 <MTughan> Odd then. When I have mine ondemand, it scales back to 800MHz...

17:23 <PovAddict> KathrynM:

17:23 <PovAddict> option 1

17:23 <KathrynM> huh?

17:23 <PovAddict> get a root shell, and do: echo "performance" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor

17:24 <KathrynM> what does that do?

17:24 <KathrynM> well, I know what it does?

17:24 <PovAddict> it changes the governor from "ondemand" to "performance" :)

17:24 <KathrynM> why bother?

17:24 <MTughan> Nvm, I know why.

17:24 <PovAddict> my CPU was running at 1GHz when ondemand, instead of the supposed 2.2GHz

17:24 <MTughan> It's a Yonah core. Yonah doesn't seem to support scaline.

17:24 <MTughan> scaling*

17:24 <PovAddict> for months *shudder*

17:25 <KathrynM> ouch

17:25 <MTughan> Oops... EIST would be scaling... :P

17:25 <CoderForLife> can I run BOINC on this?  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27575051/

17:26 <MTughan> rofl

17:26 <PovAddict> I wouldn't want to be runned over by THAT

17:26 <CoderForLife> ah good

17:27 <MTughan> 'But drivers are still needed, at least for now, says Campbell: "The sensors would give the driver more information, so the human operators are still in charge or at least in control."'

17:27 <Soul_keeper> can set whatever clock you want with cpufreq-set   if you got the right kernel support

17:27 <KathrynM> I'm going back to bed for an hour.  At least it's Friday.

17:27 <PovAddict> I don't have that program Soul_keeper, and I don't really want to overclock :)

17:27 <PovAddict> just get the speed I paid for :)

17:27 <Soul_keeper> that's the point ...

17:56 <MTughan> yoyo[RKN]: Hit 50%. Dunno when, CPU time is still increasing. Currently at 1h12m.

17:57 <yoyo[RKN]> nice

17:58 <yoyo[RKN]> I see currently runtimes between 1 and 3h

18:00 <MTughan> It's currently running alongside an E@H task/

18:00 <MTughan> Was sudoku before.
