IRC logs of #boinc for Saturday, 2010-09-25

00:00 <PovAddict> oh yes, climateprediction is a *giant* amount of Fortran, and they don't show code unless you sign some agreement

00:01 <PovAddict> I don't know Fortran nor climate models, so.. :)

00:01 <ebo> and pay $5,000 if I remember correctly. Do you know if WRF, or one of the other climate models, have a boink project.

00:01 <ebo> I know fortran, but not sure I am glad to say it ;-)

00:02 <PovAddict> I don't know about now, but CPDN used to say they'd give you the code (without paying) if you said you were interested in porting to other platforms or something

00:02 <ebo> those models are typically recompile on run, and have NASTY old habits like, model parameterization is editing the source...

00:02 <PovAddict> (and signed their legal stuff promising not to use it commercially etc)

00:03 <ebo> Hmm... I do not mind signing non-disclosures and non-comercial agreements, so maybe I should email CPDN

00:04 <PovAddict> or maybe I misremembered

00:04 <PovAddict> "The Met Office has a policy of allowing access to the entire model source code for specific bona fide research purposes. Any person or persons wishing to access the model source code (approx. 500,000 lines of Fortran) can make a written application to The Met Office stating the purpose and likely duration of their research"

00:05 <PovAddict> anyway, what was I going to do... oh yeah, sleep

00:05 <ebo> nighty night...

00:05 <PovAddict> night all boincers

00:05 <ebo> thanks for the info BTW

16:55 <dorkface> Hi all.  I'm trying to setup boinc 6.1.17 on my headless personal server (ubuntu hardy), but when I try to run "run_manager" it complains that "libSM.so.6" is shared and cannot be found.  Apparently, the error is so horrible, it kicks me off of the ssh session!  Any suggestions?

16:55 <dorkface> err...6.10.17

16:58 <dorkface> Does the manager require a graphical setup to work?

16:59 <whynot> no, install (on server) boinc-client

16:59 <whynot> install boinc-manager on your workstation

17:00 <whynot> then control the client remotely

17:00 <dorkface> ah

17:00 <_Danilo_> dorkface: https://launchpad.net/~pkg-boinc/+archive/ppa

17:00 <Romulus> Title: Current BOINC releases : “Debian BOINC Maintainers” team (at launchpad.net)

17:00 <dorkface> *smacks self*

17:00 <dorkface> hence the client-server relationship

17:01 <dorkface> Ok, that brings me to another issue

17:01 <whynot> and yet there are account managers

17:01 <dorkface> I actually did have the boinc-client installed earlier

17:01 <dorkface> but I removed it, thinking that my other desktop, which has the graphical manager, has a much later version

17:02 <dorkface> and I was trying to connect to the headless box using "advanced->Select computer...", but it never worked

17:02 <dorkface> I've opened 31416 on my router too

17:02 <dorkface> as someone suggested

17:03 <whynot> check /etc/boinc-client/remote_hosts.cfg on server

17:07 <dorkface> Eureka!  My apologies.  I'm sure this is a manual somewhere that I need to read.

17:08 <dorkface> Thanks :)

17:08 <whynot> not yet, a bit about 31416

17:09 <whynot> does your router serve the interwebs for your LAN?

17:09 <whynot> iow, is it a firewall?

17:09 <dorkface> yes, it's a wrt54g

17:09 <whynot> then close back that port, you don't want your neighbors to rule your boinc, right?

17:10 <dorkface> done and done

17:10 <whynot> happy cranching!

17:10 <dorkface> :)

23:15 <PovAddict> 'boinc combined' scores are overrated

23:47 <efc> i was going to try modem bonding with winmodems on linux

23:47 <efc> guess how far that got

23:48 <PovAddict> there's this cool thing called broadband

23:48 <efc> Does it allow me to reach through and hit you with something?

23:49 <PovAddict> no, you need to pay extra for that (airplane flight)

23:51 <PovAddict> but you can probably get my address via the internets

23:51 <efc> Maybe Le Prez will spend a few billion and get us something

23:51 <efc> Would be nice to get something out of the boondoggle
