22:23 <Appetite> I'm trying to run BOINC without a GUI on deian lenny, but it hangs after it prints: 12-Apr-2010 22:23:26 [---] Visit for instructions

22:23 <Romulus> Title: BOINC (at

22:24 <Appetite> says i'm not attached to this done via boinccmd?

22:24 <PovAddict> yes

22:24 <Appetite> And how is that done?

22:25 <PovAddict> it doesn't "hang", it just has nothing else to say for now :)

22:25 <PovAddict> let's go a few steps back just in case

22:25 <PovAddict> how did you install boinc? apt-get?

22:25 <Appetite> wget

22:25 <PovAddict> so where did you get it from?

22:25 <Appetite> since i have no WM, i can't use GUI, so i wget'ed the "for old linux" one with no GUI

22:25 <Appetite> i believe?

22:26 <PovAddict> ah k

22:26 <PovAddict> any reason why you didn't just apt-get install boinc-client? :)

22:26 <Appetite> followed the "for old linux" link

22:26 <Appetite> Will that work with no WM?

22:26 <PovAddict> sure

22:26 <PovAddict> only the boinc-manager package would need a GUI

22:27 <Appetite> ah, okay.

22:27 <Appetite> how, to attach to a project, how is this done?

22:28 <PovAddict> are you now using the package? (if yes, don't run the BOINC client; it was already started during installation!)

22:28 <Appetite> yes i'm now using the package

22:28 <PovAddict> cd /var/lib/boinc-client

22:29 <PovAddict> (or was it /var/lib/boinc... I never remember)

22:29 <Appetite> boinc-client

22:29 <PovAddict> is it the first time you use BOINC, or do you already have a project account?

22:29 <Appetite> i already have a project account

22:29 <Appetite> on other pc's i have a WM, so i just use the manager

22:30 <PovAddict> boinccmd --lookup_account http://project/url/ your@email yourpassword

22:30 <PovAddict> it will print your account key (which you should keep even more secret than your password :P)

22:30 <PovAddict> boinccmd --project_attach http://project/url/ thelongaccountkey

22:31 *** Turf has quit IRC

22:31 <Appetite> okie doke

22:31 <Appetite> and why is the long account key so secretive?

22:32 <PovAddict> because it can be used to login to your account, just like your email+password pair

22:32 <Appetite> oh, i see

22:32 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

22:33 <Appetite> now, what?

22:33 <Romulus> I guess now, what are you saying about the size of your problem? =), Appetite

22:33 <PovAddict> but it can't be changed, unlike your password, so once you post it on a publicly-logged channel like this one, you may be screwed :)

22:33 <Appetite> Romulus: hm?

22:33 <Romulus> I don't have a clue, Appetite.

22:33 <Appetite> Romulus: I dont understand what you said, lol.

22:33 <Romulus> I don't know.

22:33 <PovAddict> &botsnack

22:33 <Romulus> PovAddict: Botsnacks are stupid, donate to my project instead.

22:33 <PovAddict> Appetite: "boinccmd --get_project_status" see if your project shows up there

22:34 * Appetite is a bit retarted ;p

22:34 <Appetite> but anyway, hold ond

22:34 <Appetite> on*

22:34 <Appetite> It justs lists tons of stuff

22:36 <Appetite> but yeah

22:36 <Appetite> it shows up

22:36 <Appetite> Now, how do i enable it to run?

22:37 <PovAddict> probably already is

22:37 <Appetite> in the boinccmd --get_project_status it says enabled: No

22:38 <Appetite> and it's not running, as htop doesn't even show it in the top 10

22:38 <PovAddict> huh, since when is there an "enabled:" item there?

22:38 <Appetite> no s..

22:39 <PovAddict> you sure it doesn't say "ended"? :P

22:39 <Appetite> yeah it's ended

22:39 <Appetite> Quickly scanned over it, lol

22:39 <Appetite> anyway, it isn't running though, so how do i start it?

22:40 <PovAddict> boinccmd --get_messages

22:40 <PovAddict> what are the last few lines?

22:40 *** Turf has joined #boinc

22:40 <Appetite> not a valid argument apparently, just shows me all possible arguments

22:41 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

22:41 <PovAddict> check your typing? :P

22:41 <Appetite> it's right

22:42 <PovAddict> hmm it should work...

22:42 <PovAddict> try boinccmd --get_messages 0

22:42 <Appetite> Einstein@Home 1 1271126566 Started download of h1_0576.05_S5R7

22:43 <PovAddict> ah Einstein

22:43 <PovAddict> large files to download first time :)

22:43 <Appetite> yeah i dont know which to contribute to lol

22:43 <Appetite> ah ok

22:43 <Appetite> and if there is another you think is better, tell me ;p

22:50 <Appetite> PovAddict: it's using one core at 95% and the other core isn't being used

22:56 <Appetite> yeah one core at 100% and other is not being used

22:59 <Appetite> PovAddict: real quick, i'm about to go, if you're around

22:59 <Appetite> could you tell me how to enable the usage of both processor cores?

23:01 <PovAddict> does "boinccmd --get_results" show more than one task?

23:01 <Appetite> sec, ill check

23:02 <Appetite> htop is showing 2 processes running for einstein

23:02 <Appetite> under ==Results==

23:02 <Appetite> it has 2 things

23:02 <PovAddict> then it should be using both cores, no?

23:02 <Appetite> well htop says 1 core is at 100%

23:02 <Appetite> the other at .1 (which is me ssh'ing + htop...not einstein)

23:03 *** zukeprime has joined #boinc

23:03 <PovAddict> hmm htop looks cool :)

23:03 * PovAddict installs

23:03 <Appetite> its better version of top ;p

23:04 <Appetite> Any reason it randomly stopped running O.o

23:04 <Appetite> like the processes are there, but using 0% CPU

23:12 <Appetite> PovAddict: is there a way to turn boinc back on? it doesn't seem to be running lol

23:12 <Appetite> pgrep boinc returns a process, but htop says 0% of CPU is being used

23:15 <PovAddict> the boinc process isn't supposed to use large amounts of CPU

23:15 <Appetite> PovAddict: Authorization failure: -155

23:15 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

23:15 <Appetite> thats what check_project_status gives

23:16 <PovAddict> cd back to /var/lib/boinc-client :P

23:16 <Appetite> ok

23:16 <Appetite> oh

23:16 <Appetite> ;p

23:16 <Appetite> it hasn't started

23:17 <Appetite> get_messages just shows the opening thing and this stuff:  1 1271128279 Preferences limit disk usage to 13.75GB

23:17 <Appetite> never started processing einstein

23:18 <Appetite> no einstein processes were created

23:20 <Appetite> PovAddict: any quick fix? if not ill fix it tomorrow

23:20 <PovAddict> I don't know what's going on

23:20 <Appetite> aight ill try to fix it tomorrow
