06:57 <MTughan> hawmps was just around. But I'm off to breakfast...

06:57 <TheGasGiant> much being discussed?

06:57 <TheGasGiant> ok..yum yum

06:57 <MTughan> No, just some weather and a spork'd IP.

06:58 <TheGasGiant> the great world topic...weather :)

06:58 <wdsmia> *lo Paul

06:59 <TheGasGiant> heya Doug...obviously got your pm

07:00 <TheGasGiant> I see your RAC is off the scale!

07:00 <wdsmia> glad you made it but bad timeing have to go get ready for w@#%

07:00 <TheGasGiant> always the way in these different times zones

07:01 <TheGasGiant> just a couple of ATI cards will do that for ya

07:01 <wdsmia> yep :)

07:02 <TheGasGiant> almost contemplating swapping the 4850 out for a 4850x2

07:03 <wdsmia> Highest World position ever 70 at 2006-04-23 ...BOINC World position based on credit (based on incremental update) 70 out of 1,763,083

07:12 <TheGasGiant> g'day Jay..long time

07:13 <hawmps> indeed

07:13 <TheGasGiant> all well in the land of business?

07:13 <hawmps> Hows winter in Oz?

07:13 <TheGasGiant> too dry

07:13 <hawmps> too wet here

07:13 <hawmps> but biz is good.

07:14 <TheGasGiant> good to hear, I was wondering how you might be riding this out

07:14 <TheGasGiant> all well at my end...busy busy busy

07:15 <TheGasGiant> How's Kaz and the rest of the farm?

07:15 <hawmps> the farm is fine, Kaz is still dead.

07:15 <hawmps> but I know you forgot.

07:16 <TheGasGiant> I didn't know...I think.  I'm sorry to hear.  How long ago?

07:16 <hawmps> 2 years ago last month

07:16 <TheGasGiant> in that case..I must have forgotten...dang.

07:17 <hawmps> don't worry about it.

07:18 <TheGasGiant> you still have the web cams of the farm set up?

07:18 <hawmps> they're down at the moment

07:20 <TheGasGiant> I see you haven't jumped onto the GPU band wagon.

07:21 <hawmps> yeah, I did

07:21 <hawmps> 2 boxes

07:22 <hawmps> aqua was the only one working for linux, and they're out of work.

07:22 <TheGasGiant> hmmm....not ATI on MW then ;)

07:23 <hawmps> my winbox here is chewing up seti cuda with an 8800GTS fairly well.

07:23 <hawmps> mw needs to get their cuda app out.

07:24 <hawmps> this nix box has a GTX 295

07:24 <TheGasGiant> lol....they can't keep up atm

07:24 <TheGasGiant> nice

07:24 <hawmps> about 40K in aqua so far

07:25 <TheGasGiant> i see aqua have stopped the cuda app development and stopped generating wu's for it

07:25 <hawmps> go figure..

07:26 <TheGasGiant> lol....need at 4890 or a 4870x2....

07:27 <hawmps> again, ATI + Linux = SUCKS

07:28 <TheGasGiant> true....

07:29 <hawmps> cuda 2.3 is out and there are a couple more apps planning to roll out.

07:29 <TheGasGiant> which projects?

07:29 <Romulus> It has been said that which projects are you running, xcamel, TheGasGiant

09:59 <hawmps> "SETI@home[error] Application file libcudart.so.2 missing signature"

09:59 <hawmps> any ideas?

10:00 <MTughan> What app_info did you use?

10:01 <hawmps> the one included with the chrunch3r apps

10:02 <MTughan> Where are those?

10:02 <Romulus> or cached

10:02 <hawmps> is there something I should look for within the app_info file?

10:03 <MTughan> I'm wondering if it maybe includes an entry for libcudart.so

10:03 <hawmps> <file_ref>

10:03 <hawmps> <file_name>libcudart.so.2</file_name>

10:03 <hawmps> </file_ref>

10:03 <hawmps> that's it.

10:04 <hawmps> no sigs

18:12 <mwilber> Hello everyone! I'm new to boinc and have some questions. We have a lot of computers that we'll want to add our university's boinc projects to, so it seems like a project manager is the way to go; is that right? My two questions are: 1. Which project manager will allow us to create our own projects, not just the official ones? 2. If we're creating one image with the boinc client and deploying it to several computers at once, will that

18:15 <mwilber> oh, I meant to say 'account manager', not project manager.

20:00 *** yomshleeshee has quit IRC

20:09 <CoderForLife> hmm

20:10 <PovAddict> I'm looking at some exploit code now

20:11 <PovAddict> this looks serious as hell

20:18 <CoderForLife> both mirrored drives boot to the same point - "GRUB"

20:19 <CoderForLife> CD-ROM controller appears to be dead

20:19 <CoderForLife> I'm sorta locked out 9f the machine

20:19 <CoderForLife> it's the only SCSI machine I own, so I can't mount the drives elsewhere

20:20 <CoderForLife> I do have a spare SCSI drive with FC6 on it

20:20 <CoderForLife> it boots up pretty far, until a kernel panic

20:20 <KathrynM> tgif

20:20 <CoderForLife> so the basic machine seems OK

20:20 <KathrynM> <--------- shower

20:20 <CoderForLife> I'm conisdering my options for data recovery

20:21 <CoderForLife> that is the machine with all my BOINC Code and data on it

20:21 <CoderForLife> With mirrored SCSI, I thought it was pretty safe

20:22 <CoderForLife> I never considered a doublde scribble

20:22 <wdsmia> 3 words... backup, backup, backup

20:22 <PovAddict> MTughan: http://lwn.net/Articles/342330/

20:22 <Romulus> Title: Fun with NULL pointers, part 1 [LWN.net] (at lwn.net)

20:23 <PovAddict> the attack explained there, all the way to the details (like using pulseaudio as a stepping stone), matches the exploit I found

20:23 <PovAddict> so it looks like it's the exploit for the TUN/TAP driver was modified for this new (more serious) vulnerability

20:24 <PovAddict> which also means the vulns are similar, so the article is fairly relevant

20:30 <KathrynM> PovAddict, CoderForLife did you see the cartoon I posted a few days ago?  http://www.penguinpetes.com/Doomed_to_Obscurity/index.php?strip=0000113.jpg

20:30 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/njvdta> (at www.penguinpetes.com)

20:31 <CoderForLife> any other helpful words wdsmia?

20:32 <CoderForLife> I'm looking for a diskette bootable Linux to get access to one of the drives, and copy the contents to a share

20:32 * KathrynM goes to work. T-8.5hours until the weekend

20:32 <CoderForLife> SAMBA that is

20:37 <CoderForLife> nothing heard
