17:09 <Bugsbane> Anyone know how to test if BOINC can be successfully connected to from outside? I'm not getting any work, even though the server says there are jobs pending and my router is in DMZ mode...

17:17 <whynot> look in logs -- if boinc is sent WUs although can't receive them it will complain

17:17 <whynot> if logs appear clean then, probably, it's upstream problem

17:18 <Bugsbane> k, thx whynot

17:18 <Bugsbane> Now to find where Ubuntu keeps the boinc logs...

17:20 <whynot> /var/lib/boinc-client/

17:21 <whynot> however, probably manager can show them too (I rule core boinc at command-line, thus I could be wrong)

17:23 <Wizzup> Ok so I've done a checkout on the boinc repos, and I want to build the wx gui, but I seem to be unable to do so. Any tips?

17:23 <Wizzup> I can't find an appropriate configure flag, anyway. Already passed --with-x and --enable-manager (although I think this is default)

17:25 <Wizzup> Hm, calling make -C clientgui fails apparently

17:25 <Bugsbane> thx again

17:25 <whynot> (unbased guess) it could be missing dependencies, then build script decides to skip building manager

17:25 <Wizzup> I thought configure would error on missing deps

17:25 <Wizzup> Isn't that the whole point of configure? :)

17:26 <whynot> Wizzup: depends on script, manager, probably, isn't a vital target

17:31 *** licensed has quit IRC

17:33 <Wizzup> whynot: I'll manage without the manager in that case. :)

17:43 <Bugsbane> So, if my ISP is blocking BOINC's port, boinc should be complaining in one of the logs, right?

17:47 <whynot> Bugsbane: no, client and manager are talking over 31416, that's what boinc's port could be

17:47 <whynot> Bugsbane: client talks with server over port 80, I doubt your ISP blocks that port

17:53 <Wizzup> Where does boinc_client log to? I'm modifying the sources to hack in a jailer but I can't seem to get it to print anything.

17:55 <whynot> Wizzup: it should be stdoutdae.txt and stderrdae.txt in its home directory

17:56 <Wizzup> (running it as my own user, didn't run make install)

17:56 <Wizzup> ah, got it I think

17:56 <Wizzup> thx

17:58 <Wizzup> Nope, I can't find it. :/

18:00 <whynot> Wizzup: is your custom client dieing instantly or just keeps doing nothing?

18:00 <Wizzup> I'm trying to make it stop or at least write something at the execv() calls in client/app_start.cpp, so it's perfectly possible that it dies (sub process anyway), but nothing is logged

18:00 <Wizzup> and boinc_client doesn't die

18:01 <whynot> Wizzup: that's fine,

18:01 <whynot> Wizzup: run this command: pgrep boinc

18:02 <Wizzup> Just a moment

18:02 <whynot> Wizzup: if it shows one number -- it's what you are looking for (it's boinc's PID)

18:02 <whynot> Wizzup: then run this: ls -l /proc/PID/fd

18:03 <whynot> Wizzup: simlinks 1 and 2 are STDOUT and STDERR respectively

18:03 <whynot> Wizzup: that's where it writes, if ever

18:03 <Wizzup> Thanks, that will help!

18:03 <Wizzup> I was hoping it would write to stdout when just using ./boinc_client

18:04 <Wizzup> (it does, I'm just not seeing anything)

18:05 <Wizzup> I'll play with it again tomorrow

18:06 <Wizzup> thanks for the help, I'll be back with more questions later :)

18:24 <PovAddict> Wizzup: an ISP can't possibly block BOINC's port

18:25 <PovAddict> since BOINC and server talk via normal HTTP

18:25 <PovAddict> if you can't access HTTP / port 80, you can't access any website

18:25 <PovAddict> there's also no incoming connections, so DMZ is overkill and a security problem

18:26 <Wizzup> I don't think I was talking about blocking ports

18:26 <PovAddict> oh, I meant to say that to Bugsbane

18:26 <PovAddict> [18:43] <Bugsbane> So, if my ISP is blocking BOINC's port, boinc should be complaining in one of the logs, right?

18:28 <Tank_Master> itll say cant connect to project

18:28 <Tank_Master> or something like that
