06:48 <ooser> PovAddict: under what user must i run boinc_cmd?

06:49 <ooser> if i run it under my regular user i get Authorization error

06:50 <ooser> I tried as root and it does not complain, but still computer is not doing any work

07:05 *** licensed has quit IRC

07:16 <EL_Gono> ooser : what is the error messagee exactly?

07:16 *** EL_Gono is now known as ELGono

07:21 <ooser> ELGono: 'boinc_cmd --get_status'  >  'Authorization failure: -155'

07:21 *** quail has quit IRC

07:30 <ELGono> boinccmd --get_status

07:30 <ELGono> Authorization failure: -155

07:30 <ELGono> indeed, same here

07:37 <ooser> and if i try to run '> boinc_gui' it says it cannot connect

07:37 <ooser> well, rather "disconnected"

07:38 <ELGono> you tried with password in gui_rpc_auth.cfg

07:39 <ooser> password?

07:39 <Romulus> Rumor has it password is wrong, ooser

07:39 <ooser> which one where?

07:39 <ELGono> check the file gui_rpc_auth.cfg

07:39 <ooser> where is that file?

07:39 <Romulus> Somebody said that file is probably shared between all tasks, ooser

07:40 <ELGono> if something set there

07:40 <ELGono> in boinc dir

07:40 <ooser> now ehre is boinc dir?

07:41 <ooser> boinc_cmd is in /usr/local/bin/

07:41 <ELGono> depends on distro

07:42 <ELGono> find / -name "gui_rpc_auth.cfg" -print

07:42 <ELGono> but i bet, thats not the problem

07:44 <ooser> ok, it is searching

07:44 <ooser> at least it's not in /var/db/boinc

07:47 *** bastik has quit IRC

07:49 <ooser> ok, found the pw

07:49 <ooser> where do i enter it?

07:55 <ELGono> elgono@schl0nz:~/boinc$ boinccmd --get_state

07:55 <ELGono> resource share: 100.000000

07:55 <ELGono> oki working now

07:55 <ELGono> the problem had nothing to do with password settings

07:55 <ooser> so, what was it?

07:56 <ELGono> can you paste output of following command?

07:56 <ELGono> ps -elf  grep boinc

07:56 *** Trog has joined #boinc

07:56 <ELGono> ps -elf | grep boinc

07:56 <ELGono> hehe

07:57 <ooser> 'ps -elf | grep boinc' yields nothing

07:58 <ELGono> so there is no boinc running

07:58 <ooser> hmm

07:58 <ELGono> infact boinccmd tries to connect a socket, wich is dead

07:58 <ooser> but I seen it in the boot messages "starting boinc_client"

07:59 <ooser> ok, so I run boin_client in one terminal and then boinc_cmd in another?

07:59 <ELGono> you might start boinc in dir with " boinc --allow_remote_gui_rpc "

07:59 <ooser> boinc: Command not found

07:59 <ELGono> if you have screen, it's a perfect moment to use it before

08:00 <ELGono> you did install via distro?

08:00 <ooser> yep

08:00 <ooser> I have boinc_client, boinc_cmd and boinc_gui

08:00 <ooser> so I'll try boinc_client --alow......

08:01 <ELGono> yep

08:01 <ooser> as root or as my user?

08:01 <ooser> or ha

08:01 <ELGono> user

08:01 <ooser> "Another instance of BOINC is running"

08:01 <ooser> oh, I tried as root

08:01 <ELGono> that is what i was thinking of

08:01 <ooser> but still it says there already is a BOINC

08:02 <ELGono> same promblem here

08:02 <ELGono> i killed the two instances and started boinc manually

08:02 <ooser> an no, in this temrinal im user

08:02 <ooser> how kill I?

08:02 <ELGono> then it could create the socket (check with lsof -i:31416

08:03 <ooser> and I think, I hasve a boinc user too, so maybe I should 'su boinc' ?

08:03 <ELGono> sudo ps -elf | grep boinc should display all instances

08:03 <ooser> lsof: Command not found

08:03 <ooser> sudo -elf | grep boinc shows nothing at all, returns sright to the prompt

08:04 <ELGono> sudo ps -elf

08:04 <ooser> sudo ps elf I mean

08:04 <ooser> yes

08:04 <ELGono> oki

08:04 <ELGono> wierd

08:05 <ELGono> unfortunately i'll have to leave right now ... back in hour or so

08:05 <ooser> also tried with capitals ("BOINC"), same result

08:05 <ooser> ok

08:05 <ooser> thank you anywhy

08:05 <Trog> what does top output - sorry for butting in

08:06 <ooser> hey Trog, thx for jumping in

08:06 <ooser> top says, firefox, npviewer, Xorg, ...

08:06 <ooser> top | grep boinc nothing

08:06 <ooser> ah

08:06 <ooser> down there

08:06 <Trog> no rference to boinc - its not running

08:07 <ooser> well it seems not todigest well that 'top | grep boinc' for it shows nothing, but in plain top there is boinc

08:07 <ooser> way down tho

08:07 <ooser> PID 2476 username boinc THR 1Pri 44 nice 0

08:07 <ooser> boinc_client

08:08 <ooser> even after xchat and pidgin

08:08 <ELGono> kill that with " kill 2476 "

08:08 <ELGono> and start boinc_client --allow_remote_gui_rpc

08:09 <ooser> killed

08:09 <ooser> again: as user "ooser" as root or as user "boinc"?

08:09 <ELGono> should run with user priv.

08:10 <ooser> ok, starting

08:10 <ooser> again, complaining about another instance running

08:10 <ooser> killall boinc_client says no mathcing processes found

08:11 <ooser> it's not showing in top no more

08:12 <Trog> what happens when you run as user boinc?

08:12 <ELGono> may deleting lockfile helps ... but i'm afk now

08:13 <ooser> thx and bye ELGono!

08:13 <ooser> Trog: user boinc gets same error

08:13 <ooser> as root it works tho

08:14 <ooser> says I'm not attached to any projects tho

08:14 <ooser> when i installed boinc i was root, but i guess i had to be

08:14 <Trog> sorry whats your distro? on gentoo I have to be root to start it

08:15 <ooser> PCBSD

08:15 <Trog> ok know 0 about bsd

08:16 <Trog> do you have init scripts eg /etc/init.d/boinc

08:16 <ooser> I rna the client under root with --allow_remote_gui_rpc and then ran boinc_gui as user. still says disconnected

08:17 <Trog> ok in boinc gui advanced tab select computer choose localhost

08:17 <ooser> rna=>ran

08:18 <ooser> localhost and some port or plain localhost? and the pw form the gui_rpc_auth.cfg file?

08:18 <ooser> yeah

08:18 <ooser> great

08:18 <ooser> say connected now

08:18 <Trog> sweet

08:19 <ooser> trying to attach to account manager

08:19 <Trog> through gui?

08:20 <ooser> I just remember I needed not do all this under windows or linux, I simply chose boinc in the menu and it opened a gui already attached to client

08:20 <ooser> yes, trying thru gui now

08:20 <ooser> "attached to account manager"

08:21 <Trog> excellent

08:22 <ooser> thank you!!

08:22 <ooser> :D

08:22 <Trog> cool

08:23 <Trog> what made you choose bsd?

08:23 <ooser> my curiosity

08:23 <ooser> and it really is very nice

08:23 <ooser> only that some things are different and one needs to get used to those

08:24 <ooser> what made you choose gentoo linux? ;)

08:24 <Trog> yeah if your used to a binary linux distro i think bsd will be different

08:25 <Trog> chose gentoo because Augustine said it was a good 64bit distro

08:25 <ooser> have a look a pcbsd you might like it as well

08:26 <Trog> I've been toying with that idea - I'm about to retire a p4 so i might throw bsd on it as a learning curve

08:28 <ooser> will now reboot and see if I can connect the gui without having to manually run the clioent with --allow option

08:29 <ooser> I'm a *nix noob so i need easy distros, nothing like gentoo or slackware

08:29 <Trog> do they have runlevels in bsd?

08:29 <ooser> i guess so, but i'M a noob

08:30 <ooser> I know you con configure the startscripts stating what other things need to have started already before a given script is performed

08:30 <ooser> at least that's what i understood

08:31 <Trog> you should start boinc through a start script

08:32 <Trog> gentoo: /etc/init.d/boinc start

08:33 <Trog> debian: /etc/init.d/boinc-client start

08:34 <ooser> tey look different here

08:34 <ooser> :(

08:36 <ooser> and i just rebooted and now connecting gui to client again does not work, even with selecting localhost and providing the pw

08:37 <Trog> run boinc_client

08:37 <ooser> no, wait, it looks like it just took it some more time

08:38 <ooser> running benchmarks now

08:38 <Trog> ok it looks like the client is setup to run as a service/daemon thats good

08:39 <Trog> you should be able to run the gui to connect to the client

08:39 <ooser> manually added malariacontrol - message from server _("This project doesn't support computers of type")x86_...

08:40 <ooser> snyced with account manager and it detached from malariacontrol

08:40 <ooser> actually I added quite some projects on the account manager, but here I don't even get error messages like the one mentioned above from manually added malariacontrol, so I wonder what I'm still doing wrong

08:42 <ooser> or is not a reliable account manager?

08:42 <Trog> don't think mc supports bsd

08:42 <Trog> try leiden classical and seti

08:42 <ooser> i added there many

08:42 <ooser> actually I _know_ i added seti to the account manager

08:43 <ooser> do i need to attach to all projects manually?

08:43 <Trog> i'm just googling boinc projects support bsd

08:43 <ooser> milkyway should also run under bsd

08:43 <Trog> no if using bam don't add manually

08:44 <ooser> but i get now work

08:44 <ooser> :(

08:44 <Trog> next time client communicates with bam will detach any manually added projects

08:44 <ooser> well, at least progress has been made re attaching gui to my client

08:44 <ooser> and clicked 3x snyc with bam

08:45 <ooser> anyway, I need to go afk now

08:45 <ooser> will try to get it running later

08:45 <Trog> wcg also support bsd according to google - but bam interaction with wcg is limited

08:45 <ooser> thank you for your help, Trog!

08:45 <Trog> l8r

08:46 <ooser> yes, added seti, milkyway, cosmology and wcg

08:46 <ooser> but not showing here locally, not even one of them

08:46 <ooser> anyway, ttyl

08:48 <Trog> - don't know how current info is tho
