00:05 <Geoffrey2> &whatis platform_list

00:05 <Romulus> Geoffrey2: "platform_list" could be http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

00:08 <Geoffrey2> does there exist any kind of installer for the linux version of BOINC?

00:09 <PovAddict> yes

00:09 <PovAddict> in your distro's repository, like for any other decent open source program

00:10 *** up365 has joined #boinc

00:11 <Geoffrey2> PovAddict, it's there, but the repo has version 6.4.5

00:11 <PovAddict> what distro?

00:11 <Romulus> what distro is this, PovAddict

00:11 <PovAddict> Romulus: shut the hell up

00:11 <Romulus> PovAddict: No idea!

00:11 <Geoffrey2> Ubuntu 8.10

00:11 <PovAddict> forget what distro

00:11 <Romulus> Okay, PovAddict.

00:12 <Geoffrey2> hang on, try Ubuntu 9.10, sorry...Karmic

00:12 <PovAddict> well it's up to them to update the package

00:12 <PovAddict> lucid has 6.10.17

00:13 *** up365 has quit IRC

00:14 *** up365 has joined #boinc

00:15 <PovAddict> Geoffrey2: it may be possible to set up APT so that you can upgrade individual packages from lucid while not upgrading your entire system

00:15 <PovAddict> I do it in Debian; I have Debian squeeze (testing) and a few packages from sid (unstable)

15:15 <CoderForLife> I was looking for ideas where to look

19:07 <CoderForLife> been howling all day

19:07 <CoderForLife> lemme check power outages

19:07 <CoderForLife> wow - they've been busy - only 938 customers out now

19:08 <CoderForLife> was 26,000 earlier

19:08 <CoderForLife> unlike when Ike went through and 98% of the service area lost power

21:00 <zombie67> 144 credits worth

21:02 <zombie67> sztaki finally upgraded their server, so that it now sends 32 bit tasks to 64 bit machines

21:02 <zombie67> but after two days, their validator is still not running.

21:03 <zombie67> two projects (edges and sztaki) are suddenly exporting jpg files in place of their stats.  What's up with that??

21:03 <PovAddict> where?

21:03 <PovAddict> &factoids search sztaki

21:03 <Romulus> PovAddict: No keys matched that query.

21:03 <PovAddict> &factoids search --values sztaki

21:03 <Romulus> PovAddict: No keys matched that query.

21:05 <zombie67> although edges finally fixed theirs, I think.

21:05 <PovAddict> edges exports stats as usual

21:05 <PovAddict> just has graphs in the same folder too

21:05 <PovAddict> sztaki is broken

21:05 <zombie67> now edges has stats too.  they did not before.  just that jpg stuff like sztaki

21:06 <zombie67> the problem at edges started about a week ago

21:06 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/ybby523> (at boincstats.com)

21:07 <zombie67> i am wondering if there are some weird new defaults in the server, that get implemented upon upgrading

21:08 <zombie67> they both have the same jpg file names

21:08 <PovAddict> I think both projects are by the same admins

21:08 <PovAddict> BOINC certainly doesn't have anything to make those graphs

21:08 <zombie67> I read that too, somewhere

21:08 <zombie67> and edges is also working with ibercivis

21:08 <PovAddict> they should hire me :P

21:54 <PovAddict> http://goodbye-microsoft.com/

21:54 <Romulus> Title: Say goodbye to Microsoft. Now. (at goodbye-microsoft.com)

22:01 <zombie67> I don't understand what that it

22:01 <zombie67> is

22:02 <PovAddict> the same thing as your link, basically :)

22:02 <zombie67> it runs linux as an app within windows?

22:02 <zombie67> they don't make thay clear at all

22:02 <PovAddict> no, and wubi doesn't do that either

22:02 <PovAddict> it's an easy-to-use Windows-based installer that sets your machine for dual-booting Ubuntu

22:03 <PovAddict> the interesting thing is that it doesn't repartition your disk

22:03 <zombie67> no, not dual booting

22:03 <PovAddict> the Linux hard disk is stored as a *file* in Windows

22:04 <zombie67> "Wubi allows you to install and uninstall Ubuntu as any other Windows application"

22:04 <PovAddict> yes, that's what it *looks* like

22:04 <PovAddict> but when Ubuntu runs, Windows doesn't

22:05 <zombie67> oh, well then what's the point?

22:05 <zombie67> I can do that with a plain old vanilla linux install

22:05 <PovAddict> the Ubuntu disk is stored as a file in Windows filesystem, then it changes your boot.ini to show the OS choice on boot

22:05 <PovAddict> no repartitioning

22:05 <zombie67> like that is a big hurdle?

22:05 <PovAddict> if you want to get rid of Ubuntu, you boot back to Windows, go to Add/Remove programs (!) and "uninstall" it

22:05 <zombie67> all linux installers will do that

22:06 <PovAddict> which will just revert the bootloader change and delete the virtual disk file

22:06 <PovAddict> I think Wubi also migrates lots of things

22:06 <zombie67> still not seeing the purpose/need/reason to exist

22:06 <zombie67> if it is really just dual boot

22:06 <PovAddict> like... it installs Firefox in Ubuntu, and copies your bookmarks from your Firefox in Windows

22:07 <zombie67> meh

22:07 <zombie67> if that is the only "selling" point

22:07 <PovAddict> it's for Linux newbies to try it out

22:08 <zombie67> that is what booting from the cd/dvd is for

22:08 <PovAddict> that's slow as heck

22:08 <zombie67> ]you can try it out, run the os from there

22:08 <zombie67> from the description, it looked like an easy and free VM

22:09 <PovAddict> well there is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooperative_Linux

22:09 <Romulus> Title: Cooperative Linux - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

22:09 <PovAddict> I'm still amazed that thing works

22:11 <PovAddict> it's like it runs the Linux kernel as a WindowsNT driver

22:11 <zombie67> bizarre

22:11 <PovAddict> the installer also gives you an X server for Windows (which have existed for a while) so you can use graphical apps seamlessly
