11:00 <piro> Hi there, I have got the following problem. I am on a Linux machine, using ssh to log onto another Linux machine

11:02 <piro> When I issue: ssh -t robert@other.machine '~/BOINC/boinccmd --get_messages'

11:02 <piro> I get 'Authorization failure: -155' from boinccmd

11:03 <piro> If I log in via ssh into an interactive shell and issue the command by hand, everything works fine

11:03 <piro> Could anyone tell me, what is going on?

11:23 <Romulus> hawmps: authentication error

11:24 <hawmps> hmmm..

11:24 <hawmps> pov es the expert on this stuff.

11:24 <piro> It has to do with the fact, that it  is not an interactive shell

11:25 <piro> If I try to execute .profile, I get permission denied too. So I am just reading up on that one.

11:30 <piro> Ok, correction: .profile execution works fine.

11:32 <piro> I have sourced the profile with source /etc/profile, I have executed . ~/.profile to set further environmental variables ... but it does not work. Still authentication erro

11:50 <hawmps> I believe there is an 'allow_remote_..." setting

11:52 <piro> ok.

11:52 <piro> I'll have a look

11:55 <piro> at least in boinccmd there is the option op=allowmorework. But I could not find allow_remote...

12:00 <PovAddict> if you're running boinccmd via ssh like that, you don't need to allow remote access

12:00 <PovAddict> the boinccmd<->boinc communication would be local

12:01 <piro> indeed. But how can boinccmd distinguish between a non-interactive ssh connexion and an interactive one?

12:01 <PovAddict> it can't

12:01 <piro> If I issue bash -c '.../boinccmd --get_messages' it works

12:02 <piro> If I issue ssh robert@other.machine '.../boinccmd' I get the help text displayd

12:02 <PovAddict> note that current directory may matter; when you do it interactively, do you run the command from $HOME too?

12:02 <piro> ... ok. I try that deliberately now:

12:03 <piro> Ok. problem solved. Thanks

12:04 <PovAddict> "./BOINC/boinccmd" and "cd BOINC; ./boinccmd" won't behave the same, because boinccmd looks for gui_rpc_auth.cfg *only* in the current dir

12:04 <hawmps> perfect..

12:05 <piro> thx. It might be noted that the error message was a bit enigmatic...

19:06 <Guest1150> hi

19:07 <Guest1150> I installed boinc on ubuntu and it is running ( I see it under top) but when I open the boincmgr it says disconnected

19:07 <xcamel> not uncommon... kill boinc, and use boincmgr to start it.

19:08 <PovAddict> Guest1150: did you install boinc from ubuntu packages?

19:08 <Guest1150> PovAddict, yes

19:08 <PovAddict> are you starting boincmgr from your desktop environment's application list?

19:09 <Guest1150> I used to be able to see it before. I just  upgraded from karmic to lucid version of ubuntu and since then this issue is there

19:09 <Guest1150> PieSpyRom, both from the kmenu or in cli with 'boinmgr'

19:09 <xcamel> lol

19:09 <Guest1150> ups

19:09 <Guest1150> I mean PovAddict

19:10 <PovAddict> hmm kmenu item should work

19:10 <Guest1150> was too fast with nick autocompletion

19:10 <xcamel> desktop icon start is better, but boinc needs to all be in one dir.

19:10 <Guest1150> does not however

19:11 <Guest1150> actually, running the command opens the manager and shows "disconnected"

19:11 <xcamel> stupid distro packages.

19:11 <PovAddict> Guest1150: same from the K menu?

19:12 <Guest1150> running from Kmenu gets me a jumping mouse arrow a temporal minimized window in panel which then disappears, so I can never look into it

19:12 <PovAddict> Guest1150: try cd /var/lib/boinc-client; boincmgr

19:13 <Guest1150> PovAddict, this one opens it and I can enter it, but "disconnected" and not projects in them

19:13 <Guest1150> but they are running right now

19:16 <Guest1150> ???

19:17 <PovAddict> is the client running? run 'pidof boinc'

19:18 <PovAddict> did it output a number or nothing?

19:18 <Guest1150> 1679

19:18 <xcamel> .56 is skipping a cpu again.

19:18 <PovAddict> xcamel: leaving a CPU idle?

19:20 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

19:20 <PovAddict> Guest1150: what about... ls -l /var/lib/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

19:20 <Guest1150> before I also encountered a problem rather frequently: "no shared memory segment" or so, and "computantion finished but no result file"

19:21 <PovAddict> on any specific project?

19:22 <Guest1150> aqua, cosmology

19:22 <Guest1150> dunno if others. I think, this message should be highlighted in the message tab, as others are. but it is not

19:23 <Guest1150> on aqua I kept getting this, so I disabled it. On cosmo I got it thrice  but then again one good one

19:23 <Guest1150> andy@Rechner:/var/lib/boinc-client$ ls -l /var/lib/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

19:23 <Guest1150> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 2010-07-07 23:26 /var/lib/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg -> /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

19:23 <PovAddict> damn :P ls -l /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg?

19:24 <Guest1150> no such file or dir

19:25 <PovAddict> did you include the questionmark? (don't)

19:26 <Guest1150> i did

19:26 <Guest1150> hehe

19:26 <Guest1150> sorry

19:26 <Guest1150> andy@Rechner:/var/lib/boinc-client$ ls -l /var/lib/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

19:26 <Guest1150> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 2010-07-07 23:26 /var/lib/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg -> /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

19:26 <PovAddict> that's same as before

19:28 <Guest1150> sorry, was in wrong window. it's late here and my concentration is rather low...

19:29 <Guest1150> andy@Rechner:/var/lib/boinc-client$ ls -l /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

19:29 <Guest1150> lrwxrwxrwx 1 boinc boinc 34 2010-07-07 23:36 /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg -> /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

19:29 <PovAddict> o_o that's unbelievably broken

19:29 * PovAddict downloads ubuntu package

19:29 <PovAddict> it's a symlink to itself

19:30 <Guest1150> maybe because of upgrade?

19:30 <Guest1150> before it worked

19:30 <Guest1150> some people say upgrades may bork lotsa things?

19:30 <PovAddict> yeah, upgrades are bad, you should stick to Windows 95!

19:30 <PovAddict> :)

19:30 <Guest1150> hehe

19:31 <Guest1150> actually they just refer to it being better to do a fresh new install instead of upgrade.

19:32 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

19:32 <Guest1150> so how do I fix this?

19:32 <xcamel> there is a much simpler way, if you care to know.

19:33 <PovAddict> ugh here we go again

19:34 <Guest1150> whay to what?

19:34 <PovAddict> Guest1150: if you delete /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg and restart BOINC (I think "/etc/init.d/boinc-client restart" as root), BOINC should recreate the file (correctly)

19:35 <Guest1150> PovAddict, did so

19:35 <Guest1150> /etc/init.d/boinc-client: 203: cannot create /proc/8947/oom_adj: Directory nonexistent

19:36 <PovAddict> did BOINC start anyway despite that error?

19:36 <Guest1150> einstein is shown under 'top'

19:36 <PovAddict> ok, try manager now

19:37 <Guest1150> trying

19:37 <Guest1150> opening

19:37 <Guest1150> still opening and still not accessable

19:37 <Guest1150> and gone

19:37 <PovAddict> try cd /var/lib/boinc-client; boincmgr

19:38 <Guest1150> opens quickly, is disconnected

20:06 *** gamerchick02 has quit IRC

20:13 <PovAddict> Guest1150: ls -l /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

20:34 <Guest1150> PovAddict,  ls -l /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

20:34 <Guest1150> -rw------- 1 boinc boinc 32 2010-07-09 01:35 /etc/boinc-client/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

20:34 <Guest1150> even with 'sudo apt-get remove boinc' and 'sudo apt-get install boinc' I get error messages

20:34 <PovAddict> right; so it's not readable from your user account

20:35 <Guest1150> it tells there are too many levels of symbolic links on the following files in /var/lib/boinc-client:

20:35 <PovAddict> ugh, you might have another symlink loop

20:35 <Guest1150> cc_config.xml, global_prefs_override.xml, remote_hosts.cfg

20:36 <PovAddict> so those three files have the same problem as gui_rpc_auth.cfg

20:36 <PovAddict> symlinks to themselves

20:36 <PovAddict> still don't know how the heck that happened

20:36 <Guest1150> I purged boinc-manager, removed them all, installed it and they were all back with same errors

20:36 <Guest1150> me neither

21:04 <PovAddict> if you purged the package, deleted what the purge didn't delete, reinstalled, and it *still* doesn't work, it's definitely a package bug

21:06 <Guest1150> purged only the manager

21:06 *** licensed has quit IRC

21:06 <PovAddict> /etc/boinc-client/* files are from the boinc-client package

21:06 <Guest1150> for i didn't wanna lose the project-specific information, for I don't recall the passwords nor do I want to lose the hours crunched on current units

21:07 <PovAddict> hmm

21:07 <PovAddict> it's possible to fix the messed up files without reinstalling

21:08 <Guest1150> how?

21:08 <Romulus> hmm... how is everyone today? been better here, looks like mother in laws expiry date is very near, Guest1150

21:08 <Guest1150> Hi Romulus

21:08 <Guest1150> mother in laws?

21:08 <Guest1150> whose?

21:08 <Romulus> Somebody said whose is that, Guest1150

21:09 <Guest1150> ??

21:09 <PovAddict> Romulus is a bot

21:09 <Romulus> Bugger all, I dunno.

21:10 <Guest1150> oh
