00:14 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

00:24 <sv2_> hey guys... just did a build/compile for the server/client...

00:24 <sv2_> but i can't figure out what the apps are called.. or where they reside!

00:27 <sv2_> ok.. i seem to have found them under the 'client' dir...

00:30 <sv2_> hmmm.. that seems to be the client... where is the server for boinc?

00:35 <Soul_keeper> CoderForLife, you still awake ?

00:38 <Soul_keeper> nm

00:41 <efc> moo

00:42 <sv2_> anybody here built the bonc server on linux?

00:45 <efc> soul_keeper, i don't remember how to get it

00:46 <Soul_keeper>                     just don't use  --disable-server

00:46 <Romulus> <> (at

00:46 <efc> the boincstats

00:48 <sv2_> i've compiled/built the source... i did a make.. do i need a "make install"... also.. how the heck does this tie into the apache server?

00:52 <Soul_keeper> i usually compile with --prefix=/home/me/BOINC-test

00:52 <Soul_keeper> then install there, and copy the files out that i want to my old BOINC dir

00:53 <sv2_> Soul_keeper - this is a completely new install... i have no idea which files to copy.. nor where they should go.. nor how the files interface with apache?

00:54 <sv2_> and the docs don't appear to be clear regarding this..

00:54 <Soul_keeper> then do an install to  /home/sv2_/BOINC  or whatever

00:55 <Soul_keeper> i've never run the server myself, so after that you'll just have to toy around till you get it i guess

00:55 <Soul_keeper> or maybe  /home/sv2_/BOINC-server

02:01 <efc> Mmm, glad I didn't give you that link then :P

02:02 <efc> I never figured out how to get it

02:04 <efc> this close enough?

02:04 <efc> should have done boinc overall but they seem to have dropped my einstein credits

02:05 <efc> there it is if you want it

02:05 <Romulus> Title: BOINCstats | BOINC combined - User stats - Detailed statistics for Eddie Cottongim (at

02:05 <Soul_keeper> yeah i can add it if you want

02:05 <Soul_keeper> might make cfl feel better :)

02:07 <Soul_keeper> your stats are weird

02:07 <Soul_keeper> no pie charts or anything ...

02:07 <efc> they seemed to have hosed mine at some point

02:07 <efc> created two users out of me. and my einstein credits are gone.

02:09 <Soul_keeper>    this is the link you'll want

02:09 <Romulus> <> (at

02:09 <Soul_keeper>    this south african guy has the same boinstats id   for some reason,  odd

02:09 <Romulus> <> (at

02:12 <Soul_keeper> you might have to e-mail someone to get einstein communicating with boincstats

02:12 <Soul_keeper> probably using different crossproject id's

02:12 <efc> i didnt have too much credit with them anyway

02:12 <Soul_keeper> so you just run seti fulltime now ?

02:12 <efc> Yeah

02:13 <Soul_keeper> how's that cyrix treating you ?  :)

02:13 <efc> Used to use Einstein as backup but it was heavy on the bandwidth for me

02:13 <efc> The cyrix is one step away from the junk pile.. that PC quit booting

02:13 <efc> no reason, just quit

02:16 <efc> It was always a hunk of crap. Biostar motherboard. Never again.

02:16 <Soul_keeper> yeah they call them MSI  now

02:16 <Soul_keeper> still crappy

02:17 <efc> Biostar is still around.. they might not stink as bad but i'll never risk it

02:20 <Soul_keeper> i dunno, i remember having a p133 and asked them for a motherboard manual and they mailed me one

02:20 <Soul_keeper> that was pretty cool of them

02:21 <Soul_keeper> i kinda expected, having a motherboard that was over 5yrs old at the time, they'd tell me to get lost

02:30 <efc> Yeah, they must have been trying to get rid of them :)

02:50 *** desti_T2 is now known as desti

02:57 <efc> Hmm, its easy to get a 5" cardboard tube, if I want 20 of them

02:57 <Soul_keeper> there has to be an easier way

02:58 <Soul_keeper> probably laying around at a package store or something

02:59 <Soul_keeper> i've used them to make flame throwers before ...

02:59 <efc> I'm wondering if I could buy the 20, use one, and sell the rest at 200% markup on ebay

02:59 <efc> I could be King of Cardboard Tubes

02:59 <Soul_keeper> a little lighter fluid inside, light them up and they shoot flames several feet out the other side

03:00 <Soul_keeper> don't even really need the fluid

03:00 <efc> yazoomills makes them as big as 12". Imagine the fireworks you could make with that!

03:00 <Soul_keeper> heh

03:01 <efc> shockwaves, mushroom cloud

03:01 <Tidus> big bang theory...

03:05 <efc> somebody might ask questions if i bought 200 pounds of black powder to fill it

03:09 <efc> might as well go to ammonium nitrate at that scale

03:09 <efc> 1 kt explosion at 1 mile, yeah!

14:23 <Soul_keeper> just a chart generated every day showing the preceding 30 days

14:23 <FreeLarry58> oh - kind of guessed that ;)

14:24 <hawmps> the main store..

14:25 <hawmps> 420 panels, 60+Kw

14:25 <FreeLarry58> lol more than enough i think

14:25 * FreeLarry58 wonders when his 7700 pending credits on einstien will clear

14:25 <FreeLarry58> times approx 3

14:27 <FreeLarry58> i see i wont complete the gpugrid unit on time and its causing everything else to stay suspended too

14:28 <FreeLarry58> so think i'll avoid that for a while longer

14:28 <FreeLarry58> really mucks up gaming - have to suspend boinc while using machine for other things

14:28 <Soul_keeper> you gotta have an up to date boinc version for it to work right

14:28 <FreeLarry58> 6.4.5

14:28 <Soul_keeper> odd

14:29 <Soul_keeper> works fine for me

14:29 <FreeLarry58> not only usling the gpu but almost 100 percent of cpu also

14:29 <Soul_keeper> what is the resource share ?

14:29 <FreeLarry58> 100 i think

14:30 <FreeLarry58> like most of my projects

14:30 <Soul_keeper> well if the resource share is say 30%  then it should use 30% of one core

14:30 <FreeLarry58> humm is that set at project or thru boincstats?

14:30 <Soul_keeper> leaving the rest of the core to another project

14:30 <Soul_keeper> project settings

14:31 <FreeLarry58> it does vary depending on what i'm doing but makes vid/music playback choppy

14:31 <FreeLarry58> oleder cpu

14:31 <FreeLarry58> amd 3500

14:31 <jackygrahamez> oh they are finally up

14:32 <FreeLarry58> yup with 8400 vid card 256 meg

14:32 <PovAddict> Soul_keeper: you aren't HTML-scraping are you?

14:32 <Soul_keeper> mine is set to 50% of resource share, but it's only using 8% of one core

14:32 <Soul_keeper> PovAddict, yeah

14:32 <FreeLarry58> almos 42 hrs procesessing and 53% done

14:33 <Soul_keeper> interesting

14:35 <FreeLarry58> this machine will have to try and get to gpu site to see settings

14:35 <Romulus> <> (at

14:35 <PovAddict> what makes you think you're allowed to do that

14:35 <PovAddict>

14:35 <Romulus> <> (at

14:36 <Soul_keeper> if they didn't want me accessing their website then it shouldn't be on the internet :)

14:36 <PovAddict> that's like saying 'if you didn't want me to steal that image you shouldn't have put it on the internet', just because it's on the internet doesn't mean anyone can copy it

14:36 <Soul_keeper> ahhh ic

14:37 <Soul_keeper> no it's nothing like saying that

14:39 <Soul_keeper> i'll look into a better method, but i doubt grabbing 7 pages once a day will cause any trouble

14:41 <FreeLarry58> humm settings for gpu same as for other projects just defaults

15:59 <sv2_> hey guys... thanks to the pointers over the last few days regarding boinc! i now seem to have a basic server up/running...

16:00 <sv2_> so i'm now trying to figure out how to create a simple client/server app to test this process out.

16:01 <sv2_> initially, i'd like to be able to have a client app send something back to the server, and be able to have this written to a file on the boinc server... or something similar..

16:02 *** xcamel sets mode: -o xcamel

16:04 <FreeLarry58> sorry sv2_ i haven't a clue

16:04 <FreeLarry58> Soul_keeper will driver updated but still choppy

16:05 <FreeLarry58> keep it xcamel i had enough - lucky me its all melted now ;0 now just worry about flooding

16:06 <MTughan> All right, nothing too much out of the ordinary for the first day. iLife '09, iWork '09, new MBP 17", and iTunes (as I understand) is going DRM-free.

16:14 <Soul_keeper> internet explorer ?

16:14 <Romulus> Somebody said internet explorer is free because M$ could afford to take an initial loss to gain complete market control, Soul_keeper

16:15 <MTughan> rofl...

16:18 <MTughan> All right, 3.27GHz seems to be the max OC I can get, at least on air.

16:18 <MTughan> It's respectable.

16:19 <Soul_keeper> you won't know the max stable untill summer time comes along :)

16:20 <MTughan> Yeah, I know...

16:20 <MTughan> I'm considering getting a small water cooling kit though, not too expensive. Seems to get good reviews overall.

16:20 <MTughan> Gigabyte's 3D Galaxy II, $170 at NCIX.

16:20 <PovAddict> do you have air conditioning?

16:21 <MTughan> Natural AC, I guess... :P

16:21 <PovAddict> put it in strong heat mode

16:21 <PovAddict> :)

16:21 <MTughan> Sorry, it'll switch automatically in 3-4 months.

16:22 <Soul_keeper> check out  if you go water

16:22 <Soul_keeper> they are the best imo

16:22 <MTughan> Probably, but then I run into two issues: cost, and availability, even online.

16:23 <Soul_keeper> well water cooling ain't cheap

16:23 <MTughan> There's no way I'll be able to get anything for water cooling from retail, so online will have to do.

16:23 <MTughan> Well, I have a bit I can spend, but there's still the availability of the parts.

16:24 <xcamel> no liquid nitrogen?

16:24 <Soul_keeper> when i did it a few years ago i used a  30 dollar pond pump from the local department store, and a 20 dollar industrial refridgerator radior  from the local thrift shop

16:24 <MTughan> And you think water's expensive?

16:24 <MTughan> I'm going to have some dinner... bbl

16:24 <MTughan> Once I'm satisfied, we can talk later. I haven't had anything to eat today though...

16:24 <xcamel> enjoy..

16:25 <Soul_keeper> then you just gotta buy the block online for like 60 bucks, and hoses at home depot for like 20 bucks,  plus  some additive at the autoparts store for like 10 bucks (redline or equivalent)

17:01 *** wdsmia_w has quit IRC

17:03 <sv2_> hey PovAddict - not to be a bother.. but have you created a "client" app for boinc?

17:04 <sv2_> ie, an app that the boinc client downloads/runs on the client machine?

17:04 <sv2_> i'm trying to get my head around this.. without much luck..

17:06 <PovAddict> <- about as simple as it can get

17:07 <Romulus> Title: pastebin - collaborative debugging tool (at

17:07 <PovAddict> no input files used

17:09 <sv2_> PovAddict - ok... now bear with me!! the client app you provided (hello world) is compiled on the boinc server..

17:09 <sv2_> and it's installed/placed at a given location within the boinc project space yes/no?

17:10 <PovAddict> first time, you have to add the "application" (abstract concept) to the server

17:10 <sv2_> ok.. i've seen reference to that....

17:11 <sv2_> and once it's added/built.. the boinc client app, running on the client machine, can then attach to the "hello world" app, right?

17:11 <PovAddict> the only thing that really adds is a "short name" (like 'crawl') and a long name (like "Web crawler for the college pages") to the database, nothing fancy

17:12 <PovAddict> then after you put the app executable (and any files it may need) in the right place in the server, you add the "application version"

17:12 <PovAddict> which is a particular version of the app for a particular platform

17:12 <PovAddict> then you generate workunits for that application

17:12 <PovAddict> clients ask for work, get some back, download the app they need to do that work, and run it :)

17:13 <sv2_> does the boinc client running on the client machine, actually download the "hello world" client app.. i'm assuming it does..

17:13 <sv2_> ok..

17:13 <sv2_> so in theory.. i can have a simple shell script.. that does something like "ls -al"

17:13 <sv2_> and use this as the client app...

17:14 <PovAddict> not really...

17:14 <PovAddict> your app links with a library

17:14 <sv2_> but what happens to the "hello world" that's written to the local file on the client machine (the fprintf)

17:14 <PovAddict> when your app calls boinc_init (from that library), communication happens between the app and the BOINC client

17:15 <PovAddict> a shell script can't do that :)

17:15 <sv2_> how does that local file, get back to the boinc server..

17:15 <PovAddict> when you generate work, you say the workunits have an output file called 'output'

17:15 <PovAddict> then your app, at any moment before finishing, writes something to a file called that

17:15 <sv2_> is there a good website that lays this out in minute detail you can point me to!!

17:16 <PovAddict> starting here I guess

17:16 <Romulus> Title: ProjectMain - BOINC - Trac (at

17:16 <sv2_> let me check...

17:17 <sv2_> did you ever get my email from yesterday?

17:17 <sv2_> and i see your system is back up!!

17:17 <PovAddict> (careful with the tutorials in "Overview documents", they are for "type this and that and your server is running! oh and you have no idea how anything on it works")

17:17 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: You said you got a pond pump for a watercooling setup? How much did that cost, did it need to be submerged, and how loud is it?

17:19 <xcamel> you can get the small async pumps online, and they are pretty quiet

17:19 <Soul_keeper> submerged so it was quiet

17:19 <MTughan> How big a reservoir did you have?

17:20 <Soul_keeper> you can get good 400 or 600GPH ones for under 50 bucks, maybe 30 if you get a deal

17:20 <Soul_keeper> maybe a 1 gallon sized resevoir

17:21 <MTughan> One gallon... Hmm, not too bad.

17:22 <xcamel> get a 2L jolt cola bottle...

17:22 <xcamel> and some good sealant.

17:22 <wdsmia> re-hi

17:22 <xcamel> 'lo Doug

17:23 <MTughan> I was thinking a pop bottle, but I want something sealed...

17:23 <MTughan> Although if you cut the top off, put the pump in there, and sealed the top back on, that could work.

17:23 <MTughan> Construction silicone oughta seal it.

17:24 <MTughan> There's a home depot near here, and they should have pond pumps too.

17:25 <xcamel> those are all really too big

17:25 <xcamel> you only need like 4-8 gph

17:25 <xcamel> unless you have some huge radiator

17:27 <MTughan> Looks like I can get an 80 GPH pump for $15.

17:31 <MTughan> &math convert 400 L to gallons

17:31 <Romulus> MTughan: 105.668820943

17:31 <MTughan> The pump that comes with the Gigabyte kit is 105 GPH.

17:33 <MTughan> xcamel: Are you thinking 4-8 GPM?

17:33 <MTughan> 4 GPM would be 240 GPH.

17:34 <PovAddict>

17:34 <Romulus> <> (at

17:35 <MTughan> lol

17:35 <xcamel> yummy... sloppy joes

17:36 <xcamel> you want a slow flow rate, and a high thermal uptake to be the most efficient...

17:37 <Soul_keeper> depends

17:37 <Soul_keeper> some blocks/radiators work better slow

17:38 <Soul_keeper> the older blocks liked it fast tho

17:38 <xcamel> laws of thermal hydrodynamics

17:39 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

17:39 <Soul_keeper> faster is always better if you got the radiator to handle it :)

17:40 <MTughan> Doesn't matter how fast it's going really. If it's moving faster, the water is in contact with both the CPU and radiator shorter. So in theory, the same cooling ability.

17:41 <Soul_keeper> i guess

17:42 *** wdsmia_ has joined #Boinc

17:42 <xcamel> less time for thermal uptake, and expulsion...

17:43 <xcamel> slower is better, variable is best, as evey system is different, and the type/quality of the coolant is highly variable.

19:03 <sv2_> hey PovAddict - when building/compiling a client 'app', should the root/boincadm user do it?

19:03 <PovAddict> sv2_: you don't need to do it on the server

19:03 <MTughan> Building, it doesn't matter.

19:04 <PovAddict> any user who can compile (and has the BOINC libraries) can do it

19:04 <sv2_> PovAddict ??? - i thought the hello.c app was done on the server?

19:04 <sv2_> which is then downloaded by the boinc client... did i miss something?

19:05 <PovAddict> the compilation can done in any computer you want to

19:05 <PovAddict> as long as then you copy the final executable to the server :)

19:05 <sv2_> got it...

19:05 *** Crewsr3 has left #boinc

19:06 <sv2_> ok.. a basic sys adm question... where do i add to the PATH var for all users...

19:06 <sv2_> is that the /etc/.profile?

19:07 <sv2_> when i'm building the hello.c that i copied from you.. i need to add the additional boinc dirs to find the "boinc_api.h, filesiz.h' files...

19:07 <sv2_> gcc -o hello hello.c

19:07 <MTughan> -I<include_dir> -L<lib_dir>

19:07 <PovAddict> PATH has nothing to do with that

19:08 <sv2_> PovAddict - i thought that there was/is a sys var which can be set for libs to be searched from..

19:08 <MTughan> There is, but it's GCC specific, and I haven't found it.

23:27 <sv2_> so it's registered...

23:27 <MTughan> That's good.

23:27 <sv2_> so do i run the client.. and somehow attach to the hello app??

23:27 <MTughan> You're trying to get it downloaded to the BOINC client?

23:28 <sv2_> yes...

23:28 <sv2_> i think!!

23:28 <sv2_> i'm trying to run the hello test app on my client machine..

23:28 <MTughan> That's where my thinking takes me. You've registered the app, now you want to try it out.

23:28 <sv2_> on the client box.. i have the boinc client... ..

23:28 <MTughan> One more thing though... Are there any workunits for the app created?

23:28 <sv2_> right!

23:29 <sv2_> umm.. not that i did!!

23:29 <sv2_> how would i do that?

23:29 <sv2_> or not that i'm aware that i did...

23:29 <MTughan> That's a problem. Because how BOINC works is it downloads a WU along with the associated app (hello in this case), and then uses the app to compute the WU.

23:29 <MTughan> I don't know how to create WUs.

23:29 <sv2_> i've tried to cobble together how to build the test...
