00:27 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

01:04 <zombie67> what is the min level to get "<work_fetch_debug>" to work?

01:05 <MTughan> 1?

01:05 <Romulus> 1 is the first line number, MTughan

01:05 <zombie67> heh

01:06 <zombie67> I meant, the min level of BOINC to recognize option in cc_config?

01:07 <MTughan>

01:07 <Romulus> <> (at

01:08 <zombie67> yeah, that's where I learned of the option

01:08 <zombie67> I am trying it with 6.2.19, and am getting nothing

01:09 <zombie67> so I wonder if that version is too old to understand it

01:09 <MTughan> Notice some of the options say "New in <version>". work_fetch_debug doesn't have any.

01:09 <MTughan> So I presume it's at least before the earliest version noted in there, but I could be wrong.

01:09 <MTughan> Which puts it before 5.8.x.

01:10 <zombie67> it was not in the cc_config file I already had, and that was created by copying that page originally

01:10 <zombie67> so it is newer than my file

01:13 <zombie67> VP server is out of disk space

01:25 <zombie67> MT/

01:25 <zombie67> MT?

01:25 <Romulus> hmm... MT is right, zombie67

01:26 <zombie67> you still there?

01:26 <MTughan> Yeah.

01:26 *** Killerbong has quit IRC

01:27 <zombie67> <alt_platform>

01:27 <zombie67> Specify an alternate platform name, to be included in scheduler requests. New in 5.10.26

01:28 <zombie67> would this allow my xeon leopard mac get work from older project server like RCN?

01:28 *** Killerbong has joined #boinc

01:28 <MTughan> Why does it not?

01:29 <zombie67>

01:29 <Romulus> <> (at

01:29 <MTughan> 64-bit BOINC should already have alt platform names enabled.

01:30 <MTughan> Actually, depending on how old RCN's server is, it might not recognize alternate platforms.

01:30 <zombie67> is that different from anonymous platofrm?

01:31 <MTughan> Yes. Anonymous platform allows you to run an application without the server knowing/caring. Alternate platforms are for applications that are not available for your native platform, but will run.

01:32 <MTughan> Like i686 applications on x86_64 Windows, Linux, or Mac, or PPC Mac on x86_64 or i386 Mac.

01:32 <zombie67> so, let me try thn

01:33 <zombie67> what is the string I need for "regular" intel mac?

01:33 <MTughan> i686-apple-darwin

01:35 <zombie67> er, what's the usage?

01:35 <MTughan> Hmm?

01:35 <zombie67> verbage?

01:35 <MTughan> Hold on, Death Star II is about to blow up... :P

01:35 <zombie67> <alt_platform>i686-apple-darwin</alt_platform>

01:35 <zombie67> ?

01:36 <zombie67> yes?

01:36 <Romulus> yes is enable, zombie67

01:36 <MTughan> Yes.

01:39 <zombie67> thanks

01:39 <zombie67> now I need it to ask for work

01:43 <MTughan> Well, if you have any more questions, you'll have to ask someone else. I'm going to bed.

01:44 <zombie67> dang, still getting

12:11 <Tank_Master> for 8 GPUs

12:11 <jackygrahamez> hmm good to know

12:12 <Tank_Master> and rest of the system, with a good mobo that can support 4 slots... probably around $2.5k total

12:43 <Tank_Master> tax?

12:43 <MTughan> Sales tax.

12:43 <Tank_Master> whats that?

12:43 <MTughan> What, no sales tax in the US?

12:43 <Tank_Master> im in Or, we dont have sales tax

12:44 <Tank_Master> a few states do not

12:44 <MTughan> Ah... We pay 13% sales tax overall. 5% federal, 8% provincial.

12:44 <jackygrahamez> sometimes you can avoid if you buy over the Internet

12:44 <Tank_Master> they use the valuse of your property instead

12:44 <MTughan> The provincial government gouges us.

12:45 <Tank_Master> yes, its to pay all thoes people that come of with the wonderful programs that noone can use

13:36 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

13:37 <Nickuwo> Hey MT, not bad, I've started implementing, so thats a start

13:37 *** ebil|work has joined #boinc

13:38 <MTughan> Yeah, just read the news on the front page. At least progress is coming.

13:38 <Nickuwo> start school this week?

13:38 <Nickuwo> yea

13:38 <MTughan> I started it first week of January.

13:38 <Nickuwo> damn, thats early

13:38 <ebil|work> I'm trying to set up a boinc server but I'm having issues with the feeder daemon, I'm pretty sure my permissions are correct, I just don't think the feeder daemon is starting. what actually starts the feeder daemon? or do I have to start it manually?

13:39 <Nickuwo> should be in config.xml i think

13:39 <Tank_Master> Nickuwo!

13:40 <Nickuwo> What up Tank?

13:40 <Tank_Master> no much

13:40 <Tank_Master> selling off my comps

13:40 <Nickuwo> sweet

13:40 <Nickuwo> o ya?

13:40 <Tank_Master> you want to buy one for a sever? :P

13:40 <MTughan> Yeah, but not to me. :P

13:40 <ebil|work> Nickuwo, ok, I see feeder -d 3 in my config.xml, but it's never started... and I don't see any error logs

13:41 <Nickuwo> hmm, I prolly shouldn't, I'm unemployed :)

13:41 <ebil|work> if I understand correctly, boinc is 'run' by the web server right?

13:41 <Tank_Master> hey, ill sell one to a candian, if he pays for it :P

13:41 <Nickuwo> hmm, not really, you have to do ./bin/start

13:41 <MTughan> Yeah, but I'm pretty sure I've clocked mine higher. How high did you push your QX6700?

13:42 <ebil|work> Nickuwo, thanks, that's what I was missing. any nice way to automate that? or no

13:42 * Tank_Master wonders if ebil want to buy a new server

13:42 <Tank_Master> Ive cloced it up to just shy of 3.5 GHz

13:42 <MTughan> Stable?

13:42 <Tank_Master> yep

13:42 <ebil|work> Tank_Master, what kind ;)

13:42 <MTughan> Hmm, okay so you're still higher than me. I'm at 3.18GHz, although that'll be higher in a couple days once the TIM sets.

13:43 <Tank_Master> a qx6700, 4GB ram, asus mobo

13:43 <Tank_Master> selling the vid card and sound card to

13:43 <ebil|work> I actually don't need a new server though, my dual athlon MP workstation  is about to be converted into a server (~5TB of raid 5 when it's done) what I really need is a new desktop/workstation

13:43 <Tank_Master> hehe

13:43 *** sigmund has joined #boinc

13:43 *** Turf has joined #boinc

13:44 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Ha. My video card smacks the heck out of yours (although it can't be used with BOINC, yet), and 8GB of RAM.

13:44 <Tank_Master> yeah, if I had a second CUDA compliant vid card, id put that in it

13:44 <MTughan> That 8GB really helps with virtual machines...

13:44 <Tank_Master> nice!

13:44 <Tank_Master> I bet

13:44 <Nickuwo> what vid card u got?

13:44 <MTughan> I can max out VirtualBox's settings. 2GB for a VM.

13:45 <MTughan> I have a Radeon HD4870 1GB.

13:45 <Nickuwo> meh, ati :)

13:45 <Tank_Master> im selling my 7950

13:45 <Tank_Master> GeForce

13:45 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

13:45 <Nickuwo> jk, i know nothing about ATI

13:45 * Nickuwo is an nvidia fanboy

13:45 <MTughan> Nickuwo: Game comparison to GTX 260 Core 216. And apparently is much better for double-precision calculations than Nvidia's CUDA.

13:45 <Tank_Master> er 7900, not the 7950

13:46 <Nickuwo> interesting, I dig CUDA, ill have to look into that

13:46 <MTughan> Someone made an application for ATI cards (although it doesn't seem to like my machine). His results: 40 minutes for a WU on CPU, 9 seconds on ATI.

13:47 <Tank_Master> can probably do the same with nvidia, if properly optimised

13:52 <Nickuwo> and then there should be an error log....

13:53 <Nickuwo> otherwise you can start it manually

13:56 <Tank_Master> cant you just click the start button? :P

18:56 <KathrynM> Those are technical BOINC-specific terms.

18:56 <KathrynM> More descriptive terms (but still technical) would be

18:56 <KathrynM> "work fetch priority" and "CPU scheduling priority" respectively.

19:28 <xcamel> thanks for reminding me that there is a cup o joe sitting here getting cold..

19:28 <xcamel> trying to run fsck on my terrabook to recover it...

19:28 <ELGono> uhhhh nothing as bad as cold coffee

19:28 <ELGono> did you backup first?

19:28 <xcamel> luke warm now

19:29 <xcamel> not mounted..

19:29 <ELGono> then use dd

19:29 <xcamel> sadly, it **is** the backup

19:29 <xcamel> dd is easier said than done..

19:30 <ELGono> why that?

19:30 * wdsmia has dreams of Paella and opens a can of somthing that looks more like dog food :(

19:31 <ELGono> you still can steal some of rubys grains

19:31 <xcamel> "what you don't use, you fsck up"

19:32 <xcamel> pun intended

19:32 <ELGono> well if you have a bad sector disc, fsck is good idea

19:32 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

19:32 <xcamel> more like a missing superblock from the lvm crash and burn

19:33 <ELGono> copy with dd first ... if it hangs at bad blocks, try "badblocks" in read only mode to identify the bad blocks ... and exclude them from being copied with dd

19:33 <xcamel> we'll let it cook for a while

19:34 <xcamel> it shouldn't have any bad blocks -  it was clean when I lost the system

19:34 <ELGono> if it has bad blocks everything is going to be worse

19:34 <xcamel> this is an external usb backup unit

19:35 <ELGono> oh dear... fschk via usb

19:35 <ELGono> ;) taking ages

19:35 <xcamel> ya think?

19:35 <xcamel> it's a 1TB drive too..

19:35 <ELGono> your coffee will be iced then ;)

19:35 <xcamel> :0

19:36 <xcamel> if I get it back, it has the clean image of the system I lost..

19:36 <xcamel> otherwise, a little more work, and there is a clean backup on the tape unit.

19:37 <ELGono> ahhhh good old tapes ;)

19:37 <xcamel> I just have to dig to find the microlite backup stuff.

19:40 <ELGono> ah backupedge

19:40 <xcamel> YES!!

19:57 <CoderOnTheCouch> landing is a bit rough

19:59 <xcamel> ok.. need help.

19:59 <xcamel> all the files within the tar backup file are .bz2

20:01 <CoderOnTheCouch> .tar.bz2 ?

20:01 <CoderOnTheCouch>

20:01 <xcamel> the tar file is full of compressed .bz2 files

20:02 <ELGono> bunzip2

20:02 <xcamel> I need to extract the tar, pipe that to bunzip2, and put the files where they belong

20:02 <CoderOnTheCouch> untar then un-bz2

20:02 <xcamel> I think easier said than done too.

20:02 <CoderOnTheCouch> uh just like you said

20:04 <ELGono> mostly i'm just lazy using enter-key in mc ;)

20:04 <xcamel> well... exreacting the tar is easy, and filling thsystem with .bz2's is ok, but then finding all of them and extracting them with overwrite

20:04 <xcamel> er extracting even

20:05 <CoderOnTheCouch> is there a script that put together the tar?  maybe "run it backwards"

20:26 <CoderForLife> made a "signifcant noise"

20:26 <xcamel> ouchies..

20:26 <MTughan> All right... Recabling job done on the comp. When I first got the new PSU, I just essentially slapped it in and try to hide as many of the cables as possible.

20:26 <CoderForLife> that'll cost me

20:26 <MTughan> It looked rather bad. It's better now.

20:26 <ELGono> lol just wanted to ask, if the crashing sound was good

20:26 <MTughan> CoderForLife: Ouch.

20:27 <xcamel> use metal clips next time...

20:27 <CoderForLife> it was of the kind that makes you call out - "what was that?  is everyone all right?"

20:27 <CoderForLife> it was the shelving that was here when we moved in

20:28 <CoderForLife> obviously a new project has arrived

20:29 <CoderForLife> I don't need more expenses right now
