00:16 *** james__m has joined #boinc

00:17 <james__m> Anyone have issues with BOINC deadlocking their kernel?

00:17 <PovAddict> o_O

00:17 <PovAddict> no

00:17 <PovAddict> what version of BOINC?

00:17 <Romulus> Somebody said what version of BOINC are you using, PovAddict

00:17 <PovAddict> Romulus: go to hell

00:17 <Romulus> PovAddict: No idea!

00:18 <PovAddict> forget what version of BOINC

00:18 <Romulus> Gotcha.

00:18 <james__m> most recent

00:18 * wdsmia asks the room to please watch their language… Thanks, your friendly channel op

00:18 <PovAddict> that's not a version :)

00:18 <james__m> 6.6.36

00:18 <james__m> for x64

00:19 <PovAddict> (and if you're really using the most recent, 6.10.5, you shouldn't be, since that version is buggy as hell)

00:19 <james__m> Linux 2.6.30-r4 gentoo kernel

00:19 <PovAddict> do you use CUDA?

00:19 <james__m> yes

00:19 <PovAddict> how frequently does it cause problems?

00:19 <PovAddict> consider blaming the nvidia driver...

00:19 <james__m> every several days...

00:20 <james__m> 3-6 depending

00:20 <wdsmia> most recent, 6.10.6

00:20 <james__m> 6.10.6 does not seem to be out for x64 linux yet.

00:20 <wdsmia> still buggy

00:20 <PovAddict> well, there is nothing in BOINC itself that could cause problems with your kernel

00:20 <PovAddict> see if you have the latest version of the nvidia driver...

00:21 <james__m> I do have the latest nvidia driver.

00:21 <james__m> But it is possible the problem is there, since the CPUGRID projects seem to cause the problems.

00:21 <james__m> Only one I have using CUDA

00:34 <james__m> Any reason to NOT go back to 6.4.5?

00:37 <PovAddict> not sure, I don't do CUDA so I sticked to 6.2 :P

00:58 *** yoyo[RKN] has joined #boinc

00:59 * KathrynM is starting to look a bit like Rudolph

01:00 <Tank_Master> why dont you use CUDA, Pov?

01:01 <yoyo[RKN]> moin

01:01 <Tank_Master> hiya yoyo

01:01 <PovAddict> I once tried, to test a bug in BOINC

01:02 <PovAddict> after installing nVidia CUDA driver, I was left without a GUI

01:02 <Tank_Master> and so you just quit?

01:02 <PovAddict> I spent a whole day to get the old driver to work again

01:04 <KathrynM> CUDA on Linux.  Meh

01:05 <KathrynM> I can't get it to work.

01:05 <KathrynM> Well, I did once by maunally changing permissions, then I had to reboot and *POOF!!*

01:05 <KathrynM> no more cuda card visible to boinc

18:55 *** Rookie_69 has joined #boinc

18:59 *** kathryn__ has joined #boinc

19:00 <Rookie_69> Heh. After pounding up the harbour for three hours last night, we decided that winning this race was nowhere near as important as surviving this race. We turned around and had a nice sail back to the club. The thirty knot winds and three metre swells were a bit intimidating.

19:01 <CoderForLife> I've looked the Grim Reaper eyeball-to-eyeball, and I know how you feel Glenn

19:02 <CoderForLife> a destiny better deferred

19:02 <Rookie_69> The pots and pans in my lap weren't bad, but the fire extinguisher that attacked was sorta hard.

19:02 <wdsmia> lol

19:02 <CoderForLife> yeah - they don't bounce very well

19:04 <Rookie_69> One boat shredded sails and was close to being dismasted... Rigging just dangling.

19:05 <Rookie_69> I think that there were four boats out of about twenty that actually finished the race.

19:05 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

19:10 <Rookie_69> We started this 100 mile race at 1830, turned around at 2130, got back to the club around 0130, and went to bed around 0500, with at least ten other boats having given up the race.

19:12 <Rookie_69> ... and several rum bottles emptied.

19:13 <PovAddict> 99 bottles of rum on the wall

19:16 *** kathryn_ has quit IRC

19:18 <Rookie_69> ... or on the cabin floor...

19:21 <Tank_Master> or in the rum mug

19:25 <Rookie_69> I set my glass down in the cockpit and it slid across the seat and spit out the ice cubes... I guess it didn't want them in there watering it down.

19:44 <CoderForLife> gn all

19:44 <wdsmia> cya Don

19:44 <Rookie_69> NN.

19:56 *** kathryn_ has joined #boinc

19:57 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

20:00 *** kathryn_ is now known as KathrynM

20:14 *** kathryn__ has quit IRC

21:05 <jasong> Does anyone know if spotify uses drm, and if so, how does it work?  And, yes, I know it isn't available in the States

21:08 <PovAddict> why do you care?

21:11 *** efc has joined #boinc

21:11 <PovAddict> if you ask a question like that it's probably because you want to bypass its restrictions ;)

21:13 *** C0il has joined #boinc

21:14 *** C0il has quit IRC

22:10 <zombie67> What's the deal with MW?  Why doesn't it send ATI work?

22:11 <Rookie_69> NN.

22:11 *** Rookie_69 has quit IRC

22:12 <wdsmia> mw? ...its Dead Jim

22:17 <zombie67> look at that!  Collatz has figured out how to send ATI eork!

22:18 <zombie67> work!

22:19 <zombie67> so what's the hold up with MW?

22:20 <efc> wow, this website demands that I log in to request a forgotten password

22:20 <PovAddict> &grab efc

22:20 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.

22:21 <efc> So close, and yet so far

23:48 <Tank_Master> &grab efc

23:48 <Romulus> Tank_Master: The operation succeeded.
