01:39 <jasong> Man, that's like the worst possible key to go bad
01:44 <Soul_keeper> back on my old keyboard]
01:44 <Soul_keeper> i don't think i can forgive razer for this
01:44 <Soul_keeper> their mouse also broke on me
01:44 <Soul_keeper> the scrolling wheel fell off
01:44 <Soul_keeper> i was able to super glue it back on but ...
01:45 <Soul_keeper> one of the main reasons i bought the keyboard was because it had an american flag on it
01:45 <Soul_keeper> i assumed that meant it was made in america
01:45 <Soul_keeper> but when i got it home the small print said "made for the USA"
01:45 <Soul_keeper> chinese junk
01:49 <Soul_keeper> you can see the wear on the keys already from using it, i guess i type too much ...

04:59 <ELGono> nytimes.com and jay's solren mrtg was not reable
04:59 <ELGono> from europe
04:59 <ELGono> berkeley.edu was
04:59 <ELGono> whitehouse.gov, too ;)
05:00 <CoderForLife> maybe something happened to an Internet router
05:00 <CoderForLife> I lost AOL IM at the same time
05:00 <ELGono> but looks like there router issue at eastcoast
05:00 <ELGono> yea many icq members were offline for me, too
05:01 <ELGono> also eastcoast usa members mostly
05:01 <CoderForLife> there was a disturbance in the Force
05:02 <Soul_keeper> i'm thinking it won't be that hard to port to C
05:02 <Soul_keeper> already got a few dozens lines put down during that split ...
05:02 <Soul_keeper> i'll keep the cgi part in perl of course, just gotta make the daemons in C
05:03 <Soul_keeper> i'll combine the 3 perl daemons into a single threaded C daemon
05:03 <Soul_keeper> should run much better
05:03 <CoderForLife> I spent too much time yesterday trying to add regex support to C - I have no library call
05:04 <Soul_keeper> well i'll definately need regex capability
05:04 <CoderForLife> I realized then that my need was less intense, and used strstr() to match
05:06 <ELGono> "I think i can just unplug this one to use for my Vaccuum"
05:06 <ELGono> might be an explenation too
05:07 <ELGono> explanation

05:08 <ELGono> well just created a 4th dimension in my R³ ... but that should be no harm for reallife R³

07:54 <lubomir> i use boinc on windows and linux
07:54 <hawmps> and...?
07:54 <lubomir> and have the problem, that on linux it doesnt find the cuda device
07:55 <hawmps> what vid card?
07:55 <lubomir> nvidia 8800gtx with 8800ultra bios
07:56 <hawmps> check the boinc linux cuda howto?
07:56 <lubomir> i use gentoo and set there the cuda useflag(activate the cuda support). so i think it should work...
07:56 <lubomir> where is that howto?
07:58 <hawmps> it's not quite that simple... but looking..
07:58 <hawmps> &tiny http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=1163485
07:59 <Soul_keeper> you have to have the cuda enabled nvidia drivers installed, and X must be running for boinc to detect cuda
07:59 <hawmps> fedora gentoo should work the same
07:59 <Romulus> Title: Download CUDA Code - complete and free toolkit for creating derivative !@#&s (at www.nvidia.com)
07:59 <hawmps> I was getting to that...
08:00 <Soul_keeper> btw gpugrid claims that the ps3 cell processor is 16x faster than a 2GHz opteron ...
08:00 <lubomir> i have the cuda code installed
08:01 <Soul_keeper> what do you mean by "code" ?
08:01 <lubomir> that have been activated as dependencies when setting the cuda useflag
08:01 <hawmps> not just libcuda.so
08:01 <lubomir> dev-util/nvidia-cuda-toolkit
08:01 <lubomir> version 2.1
08:02 <Soul_keeper> the toolkit will do you no good
08:02 <Soul_keeper> that's if you wanna create/build cuda enabled apps
08:02 <Soul_keeper> you need the cuda enabled drivers
08:02 <lubomir> nvidia-drivers 180.29 are installed
08:03 <Soul_keeper> CUDA driver: NVIDIA Driver for Linux 64-bit with CUDA Support (180.22) this is the latest cuda enabled driver for 64-bit linux
08:04 <lubomir> Soul_keeper, gentoo means building everything from source. so i think the cuda-toolkit is been installed to build boinc with cuda support
08:04 <lubomir> the 22 was the first one
08:04 <Soul_keeper> i know what gentoo is, and no you can't build proprietary drivers from source
08:04 <lubomir> the second was the 27 and now actual is the 29
08:04 <lubomir> of course nvidia is always bin ^
08:05 <Soul_keeper> you have the non-cuda enabled drivers
08:05 <Soul_keeper> just go to the link i posted when you first came in and fix the problem
08:05 <Soul_keeper> your useflags will fix nothing
08:05 <lubomir> nvidia have take the cuda out???
08:06 <Romulus> Title: Download CUDA Code - complete and free toolkit for creating derivative !@#&s (at www.nvidia.com)
08:06 <Soul_keeper> there are two versions of the drivers
08:06 <Soul_keeper> cuda enabled, and standard
08:13 <lubomir> Soul_keeper, thank you very much. I never would get the idea, that nvidia adds cuda to 22 and the 27 or 29 have again no cuda...
08:13 <lubomir> is it the same on windows?
08:13 <lubomir> i think there every new driver have cuda,or?
08:15 <Soul_keeper> i dunno, i havn't used windows since 2004
08:15 <Soul_keeper> everytime you upgrade the drivers for linux you need to use that "get cuda" link tho
08:16 <Soul_keeper> errr cuda_get.html
08:16 <lubomir> nvidia should put cuda inside every release...
08:17 <Soul_keeper> it's still pretty recent, i think they want to keep the drivers small, since cuda is only supported on geforce 8 and up
08:18 *** wdsmia_w has joined #Boinc
08:18 <lubomir> Soul_keeper, seems like on windows its always in
08:18 <lubomir> Supports NVIDIA PhysX acceleration on GeForce via CUDA 2.0 for SDK versions 2.7.3, 2.7.2, 2.7.5, 2.8.0 and 2.8.1 (requires graphics driver v177.81 or later).
08:19 <Soul_keeper> maybe they'll add it in later then
08:19 <Soul_keeper> PhysX is for games and stuff tho
08:20 <lubomir> yea, i know
08:20 <lubomir> but it base on cuda
08:20 <lubomir> so its only supported with series8 and up
08:21 <Soul_keeper> :)
08:21 <Soul_keeper> i have a 9800GT
08:22 <Soul_keeper> very happy with it
08:23 <lubomir> mine 8800gtx@ultra is faster :-P
08:23 <lubomir> i downgrade now the driver
08:23 <lubomir> will come in some minutes again
08:23 <lubomir> thx for your help
08:24 *** lubomir has quit IRC

08:28 <lubomir> :-(
08:29 <lubomir> 180.22 is installed now
08:30 <lubomir> boinc starts as a default with linux a moment "before" X. So i stopped boinc(process) and start it again after the X server was completely up and running, but it doesnt change anything
08:34 <lubomir> Soul_keeper, have you an idea?
08:41 <Soul_keeper> let's troubleshoot
08:41 <Soul_keeper> glxinfo |grep rendering
08:42 <Soul_keeper> Driver "nvidia" in your xorg.conf ?
08:43 <lubomir> glxinfo |grep rendering
08:43 <lubomir> direct rendering: Yes
08:43 <hawmps> iirc, you may need to start a minimal desktop, and run boinc via run_manager..
08:43 <lubomir> i play 3d game on linux ;-)
08:44 <lubomir> and yes, i have set the nvidia driver in my xorg.conf
08:44 <Soul_keeper> what version of boinc ?
08:44 <lubomir> 6.4.5
08:45 <Soul_keeper> i'm using 6.5.0
08:46 <lubomir> 6.4.5 have cuda support and is the actual stable one
08:47 <Soul_keeper> how's that working for you ?
08:47 <lubomir> how did you mean that?
08:47 <Soul_keeper> :)
08:47 <lubomir> the actual testing one is the 6.6.4 for linux
08:47 <lubomir> but there is no ebuild for that
08:48 <Soul_keeper> i havn't tryed 6.4.5, 6.6.x was unstable for me. but 6.5.0 works perfect
08:49 <Soul_keeper> i think it must be the 64-bit version to work also, i havn't confirmed this tho

08:58 <Soul_keeper> no

09:02 <lubomir> okay, its just named other
09:02 <Soul_keeper> i bet if you downloaded the binary package, untared it to a directory and ran boinc it would detect your cuda device fine ..

09:05 <lubomir> okay
09:06 <lubomir> ah, and what problem did you had with 6.6.x?
09:06 <lubomir> on windows i also had problems with 6.6.2
09:06 <lubomir> it just load cuda work
09:06 <lubomir> and no normal
09:06 <lubomir> 6.6.4 is working fine
09:07 <Soul_keeper> i recommend sticking to 6.4.5 or 6.5.0 in linux
09:08 <lubomir> i just try the 664 to see if it detects the card
09:08 <Soul_keeper> btw i never install boinc outside my homedir ... i always keep it in ~/BOINC and run it from there
09:08 <Soul_keeper> easier to manage and ensure old files aren't laying around
09:08 <lubomir> does it detect my other boinc?
09:09 <lubomir> i mean, when i upgrade the boinc version, it say, old things file, upgrade from xxx to xxx
09:09 <Soul_keeper> yeah
09:09 <lubomir> i dont want that the bin version i run now upgrades the configuration
09:09 <lubomir> or so
09:09 <Soul_keeper> that's normal
09:09 <lubomir> just see if detects the cuda
09:10 <lubomir> yea, but i dont want that for the test now ^^
09:10 <lubomir> and how should i unpack that .sh?
09:10 <lubomir> .sh is normaly script...
09:10 <Soul_keeper> chmod +x
09:11 <lubomir> ah,lol, so just run the script
09:12 <ELGono> rehi
09:12 <Soul_keeper> lo ELGono
09:12 <ELGono> Soul_keeper : we still wierd routing to us
09:13 <lubomir> okay, that version directly detects the cuda
09:13 <ELGono> looks like 2 main routes active now ... but with high latency ... london-new york and london-phoenix, arizona
09:13 <Soul_keeper> lubomir, :)
09:14 <Soul_keeper> i never trust package managers to install boinc or drivers
09:14 <ELGono> hannover(germany) - new york seem to be down
09:14 <lubomir> now i update to 29 and test again. cant beleve, that the new driver dont have cuda
09:14 <Soul_keeper> they were released only 5 days appart
09:14 <Soul_keeper> they are both new

09:55 <lubomir> Soul_keeper, everything works fine with 180.29
09:55 <lubomir> the 180.22 was the version where cuda 2.1 gets implementated
09:55 <lubomir> but the versions above have also all the cuda support
09:56 <lubomir> and just fixes you can read in the changelog
09:56 <lubomir> like support for new kernel or so
10:05 <Soul_keeper> ok
10:07 <hawmps> 180 drivers are very slow...
10:08 <lubomir> hawmps, slow?no
10:08 <lubomir> just run faster then on 64bit windows in 3d games

10:43 <Soul_keeper> funny i can't find any working source for an example of a program written in C or C++ that creates then writes to a berkeley db ....
10:44 <Soul_keeper> it's apparently top secret
10:44 <Soul_keeper> i guess the better thing to do would be store my 10,000+ lines of code to a regular text file
10:45 <Soul_keeper> not like it matters .... pretty much the same principle
10:45 <Soul_keeper> could have my own key/value logic

11:11 <Soul_keeper> you have to pay for knowledge, hard work will never be enough
11:28 <Soul_keeper> so called irc "help channels" are usually a place for people to troll and claim superiority over others
11:31 <Soul_keeper> there seems to be nothing open about C/C++ programming anymore, it's all "BUY BUY BUY" "TRIAL, PROMO" etc. when searching for learning material
11:34 <Soul_keeper> #c is just like #perl another mental masterbation channel with nothing constructive going on
11:37 <Soul_keeper> that's enough ranting for now.

15:26 *** luckyhell has joined #boinc
15:27 <luckyhell> Hy, I have a question. Is this the right forum for having questions like how to shut down boinc under ubuntu?
15:28 *** luckyhell is now known as luckyhel
15:28 <MTughan> Are you wanting to close the client, stop computation temporarily, or shut down the client altogether for a time?
15:28 *** luckyhel is now known as luckyhell
15:29 <luckyhell> Hy, I would like to close the client (computing) but I can't. It is still computing
15:30 <MTughan> So you'd like it to stop computing for a while, and then start again when you tell it to?
15:31 <luckyhell> yes, that it is, what I would like to do. What I know, is just (in the advanced windows) clicking on window and exit. But it does not work
15:32 <MTughan> Nope, because BOINC has two parts to it: a core client, which is just a daemon, and a graphical manager, which communicates with the client through TCP ports.
15:32 <MTughan> In the manager, go to Activity->Suspend. That should do it.
15:33 <luckyhell> Sorry for asking; the activity button it the first button at the top left, right?
15:33 <luckyhell> (I have a german translation)
15:33 <MTughan> It's a menu.
15:34 <luckyhell> ah, now I got it!
15:34 <luckyhell> thank you very much!
15:34 <MTughan> np
15:34 <luckyhell> how easy...
15:34 <luckyhell> damn, sometimes...
15:34 <MTughan> Heh.
15:34 <luckyhell> OK, anyway. thank you very much
15:35 <luckyhell> OK, one more question: I can't save the window position. Do I have to do something within sudo to do so?
15:35 <MTughan> I don't know if that gets saved. I've never really encountered that anyway, on Windows, Mac or GNOME/KDE.
15:36 <luckyhell> OK, doesn't matter. when I look in (like) system control window, I can't find boinc running. How can I find it?
15:37 <MTughan> System control window? Shows the running processes?
15:38 <luckyhell> yes, it shows all processes running, but not boinc
15:38 <luckyhell> I can image, it has to do with the root?
15:38 <MTughan> If it only shows processes running under your name, it won't show in there. It runs under boinc_master and boinc_project users as I remember.

22:40 <FreeLarry58> humm new machine finally installing fedora10 - 1200 packages then will have to figure out the wireless nic setting
22:41 <FreeLarry58> looks good on hdmi 32 inch tv
22:43 <zombie67> what resolution?
22:43 <FreeLarry58> 720p
22:43 <FreeLarry58> i guess as havent had to set anything
22:43 <FreeLarry58> still on install program
22:43 <zombie67> ah
22:52 <Soul_keeper> freaks
22:53 <FreeLarry58> ???
22:53 <FreeLarry58> freaks or keeps?
22:55 <FreeLarry58> notice memtest86 needs to be updated reads the i7 940 as a celeron chip and doesn't recognize the L2 cache or chipset (x58)
22:58 <Soul_keeper> i think my brain is broken
22:58 <Soul_keeper> i must transcribe entire books, then read them to learn something
22:59 <FreeLarry58> ?? you still have one to break - thought it might be with mine lost in a black hole somewhere
22:59 <Soul_keeper> i think i just spent 3hrs converting the table of contents for a book into html
22:59 <Soul_keeper> wonder how long it will take me to do the whole book ....
23:00 <FreeLarry58> ugg tried that a long time ago - never got the ocr program to work right - of course with the scanner i had it was no wonder
23:00 <FreeLarry58> only a 4" width
23:01 <Soul_keeper> you mean you scanned and it turned into text ?
23:01 <FreeLarry58> gave up after 4 days and still not done with toc
23:01 <FreeLarry58> tried
23:01 <FreeLarry58> got better scanner now
23:01 <Soul_keeper> yeah that crap never works
23:01 <Soul_keeper> i knew better than to attempt something easy
23:01 <FreeLarry58> captured about 60% then
23:02 <Soul_keeper> i want to transcribe 3 books here
23:02 <FreeLarry58> but don't think you want to try it - was win ME software
23:02 <Soul_keeper> i pay these morons all this money for these books and they are worthless to me, because i can't copy/paste/search them
23:03 <Soul_keeper> it's too difficult to get these things into my brain
23:03 <Soul_keeper> unless they are a story or something worthless
23:03 <FreeLarry58> know the feeling
23:04 <Soul_keeper> i guess if i robbed a bank and bought a kindle .... but still worthless
23:04 <Soul_keeper> probably pdf's for kindles
23:04 <FreeLarry58> othertimes it takes many years to forget majority of some books and it still leaves enough for nightmares
23:04 <Soul_keeper> and i still can't copy/paste onto my regular computer
23:05 <FreeLarry58> no conversion software - or is it digitally signed to one machine?
23:05 <Soul_keeper> i dunno, i've never had luck with pdf to txt conversion
23:06 <Soul_keeper> once something is pdf it's ruined forever in my experience
23:06 <FreeLarry58> must be graphical as in picture then
23:06 <Soul_keeper> yeah kinda
23:07 <Soul_keeper> it's stored in the file with some kinda algorithm where the pixels go, so you gotta covert that somehow into text, and it never works
23:07 <FreeLarry58> www.adlibsoftware.com
23:08 <FreeLarry58> www.docsmartz.net
23:08 <Romulus> Title: Index (at sterlingdesktops.com)
23:08 <Soul_keeper> books should all be in that form
23:09 <Soul_keeper> they'll probably sue me for putting their table of contents on my webserver ...
23:09 <FreeLarry58> freedownloadmanager.org/downloads/pdf_conversion_software_software
23:10 <Soul_keeper> won't work for me
23:10 <FreeLarry58> not already in pdf?
23:10 <Soul_keeper> no
23:10 <Soul_keeper> paperback
23:11 <FreeLarry58> ahh so need to scan first and run ocr on image then
23:12 <Soul_keeper> http://pelusa.fis.cinvestav.mx/tmatos/LaSumA/LaSumA2_archivos/Supercomputo/The_C_Programming_Language.pdf "nice" i found a pdf ....
23:12 <Romulus> Title: OCR Software - Convert scanned images to Word, Excel, searchable PDF, HTML or other text formats without retyping (at www.scanstore.com)
23:13 <FreeLarry58> omni is what i tried under window me long time ago - did convert around 60% but scanner what did me in - also did not maintain margins fonts etc
23:16 <Soul_keeper> yeah i don't believe in windows
23:16 <FreeLarry58> humm select all and copy worked
23:17 <FreeLarry58> only thing is will have to redo the format but a lot less time as text there
23:17 <FreeLarry58> well need to go check on new machine and get a bite to eat - good luck Soul_keeper
23:19 <Romulus> Title: PDFTOHTML conversion program (at pdftohtml.sourceforge.net)
23:27 <Soul_keeper> Poppler ...
