15:24 *** hoonteke has joined #boinc

15:25 <hoonteke> so I'm reading trying to set the proxy (--set_proxy_settings), but I'm a little confused.  I have a SOCKS proxy set up (ssh -D 9999 some_host), so I'm a little confused what I should put on the line.  Any example inputs?

15:25 <Romulus> Title: Boinccmd tool - BOINC (at

15:25 <PovAddict> what version of BOINC are you using?

15:26 <hoonteke> 6.4.5 for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

15:28 <PovAddict> boinccmd --set_proxy_settings is totally broken before 6.6.12

15:29 <PovAddict> it sets the proxy server hostname, user, and password, but doesn't toggle the "use proxy" setting...

15:29 <hoonteke> PovAddict: alright.  So ... that basically means that I can't use it to set the proxy settings, and therefore not this set of machines.  (They mandatorally use a proxy.)  Is there another way to setup the proxy settings?

15:30 <PovAddict> you can also put proxy info in a configuration file

15:30 <PovAddict> ...but that's also since 6.6.12 ;)

15:31 <hoonteke> nice.  And there's not a an x86_64 build newer that 6.4.5 for linux?

15:31 <PovAddict> I guess you'd have to stop BOINC and (carefully!) edit client_state.xml

15:31 <hoonteke> PovAddict: alright, that was my next question

15:44 <hoonteke> alright, that's embarrassing: I looked again, and there *is* a build newer than 6.4.5.  I don't know how I got the 6.4.5 version.

15:44 <hoonteke> PovAddict: so ... any ideas what specifically I need to change in the .xml file?

15:44 <PovAddict> I don't use proxies, so no

15:45 <PovAddict> proxies are at the very bottom of the file

15:45 <hoonteke> yep

15:45 <hoonteke> but I don't know what specifically boinc is looking for

15:45 <hoonteke> I've tried removing the no_proxy element

15:45 <hoonteke> I've tried changing it to false

15:46 <hoonteke> I've tried renaming it to <proxy>

15:46 <PovAddict> I see no <no_proxy> element

15:46 <PovAddict> ok, I'll dive to the code :)

15:47 <PovAddict> the boinc client supports env vars btw

15:47 <hoonteke> oh

15:47 <hoonteke> which ones?


15:47 <PovAddict> they seem standard-ish...?

15:48 <hoonteke> there is no authentication though ...

15:48 <hoonteke> since it's running as my user

15:49 <PovAddict> anyway, if you're going to edit client_state...

15:50 <PovAddict> <no_proxy> is to specify what hostnames shouldn't use the proxy

15:50 <PovAddict> for example, to avoid the proxy when accessing a BOINC project that runs on your LAN :)

15:51 <PovAddict> what you need to add is <use_socks_proxy/>, apart from filling <socks_server_name>, <socks_server_port>, etc.

15:55 <hoonteke> PovAddict: hmm, so here's what I have

15:55 <Romulus> Title: dpaste: #82884: BOINC proxy settings, by hoonteke (at

15:56 <PovAddict> the http settings will be ignored if there is no <use_http_proxy/>

15:56 <hoonteke> ko

15:57 <PovAddict> socks_version changing is strange, though

16:00 <hoonteke> hmm.  well, now it at least says "Using SOCKS proxy localhost:10001", but I doesn't look like it's doing anything.  Now I'm not sure if it's something I haven't plumbed up... do you know of a cmdline test program for something like that ?  o.w. to google I go

16:18 <hoonteke> PovAddict: well, I've failed for now, but I do thank you for you help

16:18 <hoonteke> much appreciated.

16:22 <PovAddict> "you tried and you failed; the lesson is, never try"

16:23 <PovAddict> I think it was homer simpson who said it

16:29 <yoyo[RKN]> lol

20:02 <KathrynM> that's it, I'm moving down to your neck of the woods

20:03 <KathrynM> I need to spend half the year up north and the other half down south.

20:03 <KathrynM> that way I never have to deal with this crappy heat

20:03 <PovAddict> \o/

20:04 <PovAddict> if you're surviving *Korea*, you should be able to survive here without knowing Spanish...

20:04 <KathrynM> :)

20:04 <KathrynM> It would be easier.  At least I studied Spanish in high school

20:05 <KathrynM> And I wouldn't have to learn an entirely new writing system

20:05 <PovAddict> Spanish has an alphabet

20:05 <PovAddict> 'nuff said

20:05 <KathrynM> So does Korean.  It just looks completely different.

20:05 <KathrynM> It's not like Japanese kanji (or whatever it's called)

20:05 <PovAddict> all you have to know is that ñ is a letter by itself; between n and o

20:05 <KathrynM> :)

20:06 <KathrynM> I remember that.

20:06 <PovAddict> and we have two diacritical marks, one of which is rarely used

20:06 <PovAddict> (unlike other languages with their áàâã mess)

20:06 <KathrynM> :)

20:07 <KathrynM> ok.  shower for real now

20:07 <KathrynM> laters

20:22 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

20:34 <CoderForLife> ahh - took a hot bath

20:35 * wdsmia thinks there all wet

20:35 <CoderForLife> indeed

20:35 <CoderForLife> and now the rain moves in to complete the task

20:36 * CoderForLife fires up VNC to his Mac for the first time

20:36 <CoderForLife> very nice

20:36 <PovAddict> never tried VNC server on Mac

20:36 <PovAddict> did try client

20:36 <CoderForLife> built-in

20:37 <PovAddict> and I can say if you want to connect to a Windows machine, using RDP is way faster

20:38 <CoderForLife> I needed to go the other way - remote from w@#% to my 'doze box, then VNC to Mac

20:38 <PovAddict> and Microsoft Remote Desktop client for Mac is faster than CoRD

20:38 <CoderForLife> mean I can Code iPhone stuff from w@#%  =)

20:39 * PovAddict wrote a shell script to run 'make' immediately after a source file is saved

20:40 <PovAddict> and beep on build error

20:42 <CoderForLife> I saw buildbot does IRC

20:43 <PovAddict> yes, I have an instance running on #synecdoche

20:43 * CoderForLife would love to do something with synedoche but thinks the price may be too high

20:43 <PovAddict> notifies there when a build fails

20:44 <PovAddict> price?

20:44 <CoderForLife> um-hmm

20:44 <CoderForLife> cost

21:39 *** wdsmia_ has joined #Boinc

22:01 *** efc has joined #boinc

22:01 *** bl4 has quit IRC

22:16 <efc> Think I should go for Firefox 3.5?

22:20 * efc goes.. 3.0.X has been running choppily

22:24 <PovAddict> if you can upgrade easily...

22:26 <efc> I'll probably have to eventually anyway

22:30 <efc> It still seems to have the problem where its apparently single threaded

22:39 <PovAddict> all browsers are

22:39 <PovAddict> except Google Chrome and (I think) IE7/IE8

22:40 <PovAddict> if one tab has heavy Javascript code, the entire browser hangs while that runs

22:41 <efc> Yeah.. and all the javascript seems to be heavy these days

22:41 <PovAddict> get NoScript

22:56 * PovAddict will now try xfce

23:33 <PovAddict> it's fairly good...

23:33 <PovAddict> doesn't come with any apps though

23:33 <PovAddict> for any important apps like a web browser or an email client, you have to use one taken from a heavier desktop environment :)

23:37 <efc> How does that work out?

23:41 <PovAddict> ?

23:41 *** infinisoft has quit IRC

23:44 <efc> Heavy app on light window manager

23:44 <PovAddict> Firefox works with twm as window manager just fine...

23:45 <PovAddict>

23:45 <Romulus> <> (at

23:46 <PovAddict> the main problem if you run, say, a KDE app while in GNOME

23:46 <PovAddict> is that a zillion shared libraries from KDE and Qt will have to be loaded

23:46 <PovAddict> in some cases also services

23:47 <PovAddict> kdeinit, dcop, kioslaves

23:47 <PovAddict> so it's generally a bad idea to mix apps like that :)
