03:32 <Chacious> hello
03:47 *** desti_T2 has joined #boinc
03:51 <Chacious> wow i realised why i wasnt seeing any statistics for my windows machine
03:51 *** desti has quit IRC
03:54 <Chacious> and boy do i feel stupid
03:56 <efc> not running?
03:56 <Chacious> no thats the thing i knew it was running
03:56 <Chacious> than i was looking through the websites preferences
03:57 <Chacious> so i looked through my windows based settings on boinc and loe and behold, it was set to report every 10 days :(
03:57 <Chacious> doh!
03:57 <Chacious> wow big noobles mistake
04:01 <Chacious> is there a way to force it to manually report in?
04:04 <Chacious> so if i understand right how it validates compared to another person running boinc before it lets them have credit *or porject how ever it is* i have been delaying someone else from getting credits also
04:04 <Chacious> that sucks
04:05 <Chacious> if you go to projects in boinc, click the project you can click update and it will report all your findings
04:10 <Chacious> you wont lose your current project progress what you have crunched on a task so far, if you update the aplpication will you?
04:55 <efc> sorry, been away
04:56 <efc> yes i think if you click on update project it will do server communications, get new work, report etc, won't lose anything
04:56 <efc> i think the unvalidated work is called "pending" credit
04:56 <efc> probably depends on the server how long that takes, how many people have to run the same work, etc
04:57 <efc> err dependson the project i mean
04:57 <Chacious> k
04:57 <Chacious> i never knew it compares multiple ones doing the same one but it does make sense, in case of errors and such
04:59 <efc> since a lot of projects are open, have to guard against junk results
04:59 <efc> Zzzzz
05:01 <Chacious> anyone ever mess around with orbiter?

11:41 <JaymesKeller> Hi all, quick question, is it possible to compile the SVN code into x64 mode?
11:43 *** Caterpillar has joined #boinc
11:52 *** freakazoid0223 has joined #boinc
11:53 <JaymesKeller> And SVN is sulking. Last time, it was due to a missing entry, now I get "/usr/bin/ld: boinc_client-hostinfo_unix.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XOpenDisplay'" Is there something wrong with the SVN or is it my system?

13:28 <JaymesKeller> Okay, does anyone know how to fix this? "/usr/bin/ld: boinc_client-hostinfo_unix.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XOpenDisplay'" in SVN?
13:30 <JaymesKeller> Or would it be easier just to use the prebuilt binaries?

16:08 <Chacious> hi
16:09 *** MTughan has joined #boinc
16:09 <MTughan> So I've got a bit of an odd issue here... Work requests and submits to PG don't seem to be going through.
16:10 <MTughan> I checked what was going on with http_debug and http_xfer_debug, and it looks like BOINC's sending the request, but doesn't receive a response back from the server. A request to the notices page goes through no problem, so it's not a problem with contacting PG.
16:10 <Chacious> is that the only project that it's happening with?
16:10 <MTughan> Yes, WCG works fine.
16:11 <MTughan> I've posted to the PG boards, but it seems I'm only one of two people experiencing problems, so I don't think it's a project-wide problem.
16:11 <Chacious> is there anything on the "notes" to suggest its down? or the project website?
16:12 <Chacious> O
16:12 <MTughan> That has logs and a bit more text from me. The logs are from last night, but it's been happening still.
16:13 <Chacious> have you tried rebooting your system?
16:13 <Chacious> or "forcing" an update
16:14 <MTughan> Not yet. I've tried forcing an update and rebooting the CC and manager.
16:14 <RomW> What version of BOINC?
16:14 <Romulus> hmm... What version of BOINC are you using, RomW
16:14 <MTughan> RomW: 6.12.34
16:14 <Chacious> RomW, will probably be much more help than me hehe
16:14 <MTughan> Probably. :P
16:14 <RomW> Hmmmmm
16:15 <MTughan> Windows 7 SP1, x86_64.
16:15 <RomW> PG and E@H are kind of in a race to deploy OpenCL apps
16:15 <RomW> I wonder if it is related to the OpenCL work
16:15 <MTughan> Hmm, could be.
16:15 <RomW> Could you try .42?
16:15 <MTughan> I've been running ATI Stream apps for a couple weeks now with no problems.
16:15 <MTughan> Yeah, give me a minute...
16:16 <MTughan> 6.12.42?
16:16 <RomW> yeah
16:16 <MTughan> I only see up to .41.
16:16 <RomW> hmmmm
16:16 <RomW> okay, .41 then
16:17 <RomW> looks like i haven't built .42 yet
16:17 <RomW> lol
16:18 <MTughan> I had more a problem a couple days ago relating to a reinstall of Windows I had to do. That turned out to be messed up permissions throughout ProgramData\BOINC. PG was fetching new tasks fine afterwards though.
16:20 <MTughan> .41 is waiting on 100--continue again.
16:20 <MTughan> So that didn't fix it.
16:20 <RomW> hmmmm
16:21 <RomW> Does it ever come back?
16:21 <MTughan> After 5 minutes, when it times out.
16:21 <RomW> This is kind of reminding me like a scheduler SIGSEGV
16:22 <RomW> I guess I'll ping Rytis and see what is up
16:23 <MTughan> Thanks.
16:23 <MTughan> If he needs it, my user ID is 20194. I can give my email address too.
16:24 <MTughan> Just tell him to hurry up, as tasks are starting to expire on me. I've only had one half-hour task time out at this point, but I've got a 9 hour task that will expire in about 36 hours.
16:24 <RomW> Might take longer than that... He hasn't responded to an email I sent a week ago...
16:24 <RomW> :)
16:24 <MTughan> Ouch.
16:25 <RomW> It is vacation season in Europe
16:25 <MTughan> After that, there are a bunch that expire on the 7th.
16:26 <MTughan> Actually, I can pin down a time somewhat... PG says my last contact time was just under 2 days ago; 47 hours to be exact.
16:26 <MTughan> If that helps him at all.
16:27 <MTughan> Anyway, I have to restart for some updates... bbiab.
16:27 *** MTughan has quit IRC
16:30 *** MTughan has joined #boinc
16:31 <MTughan> Just checked to be sure, still not fixed after a restart.
16:33 <MTughan> And you bugger... Windows wants to install more updates now. >_>

17:29 *** clustermagnet has joined #boinc
17:30 <clustermagnet> guys, havent touched boinc in a while….
17:30 <clustermagnet> can someone please point me to a wiki page where i can get some quick cli way to launch boinc client and join to my account?
17:30 <clustermagnet> i have some hardware , where i wouldnt mind pushing boinc client via puppet/chef :)
17:31 <clustermagnet> thx
17:31 <clustermagnet> anything other than this:?
17:31 <Romulus> Title: Boinccmd tool - BOINC (at boinc.berkeley.edu)
17:31 <yoyo[RKN]> on which operating system?
17:32 <clustermagnet> yoyo[RKN]: both intel and sparc hardware
17:32 <clustermagnet> linux/sun
17:32 <yoyo[RKN]> just install boinc
17:32 <yoyo[RKN]> run only the client with run_client
17:32 <yoyo[RKN]> and control it with boinccmd
17:33 <clustermagnet> yoyo[RKN]: you've not tried pushing this with puppet, have you?
17:33 <yoyo[RKN]> no, what is puppet
17:33 <Romulus> Title: Puppet Labs: The Leading IT Automation Software Solution (at puppetlabs.com)
17:34 <clustermagnet> ie, pushing boinc to 100 servers
17:34 <yoyo[RKN]> I did the following with an old 5.x version
17:34 <yoyo[RKN]> I installed this on some directory
17:35 <PovAddict> the client itself also has a switch to attach to a project; do *not* use that, it's a debugging feature... IIRC it doesn't quite behave as one would expect, but I don't remember details
17:35 <RomW> If all 100 servers are going to be attached to the same projects you can cheat a little bit
17:35 <yoyo[RKN]> and copied this folder to the target system
17:35 <clustermagnet> doh, nah
17:35 <clustermagnet> uhm
17:35 <PovAddict> well it's probably a bad idea to copy client_state between computers
17:35 <RomW> download and setup boinc as yoyo suggested on one system
17:35 <clustermagnet> boinc clients, do they check with online managers for work?
17:35 <clustermagnet> or can they look at a local file?
17:36 <PovAddict> but you can copy the account_* files to attach to the same projects
17:36 <RomW> and then build a deployment package that includes boinc and all the account_*.xml files.
17:36 <PovAddict> or the account manager account file, if you're using one
17:37 *** Aeternus has quit IRC
17:37 <RomW> Copying client_state.xml between hosts is a bad idea
17:40 <clustermagnet> RomW: ok :) thanks

18:40 <PovAddict> Trac changed into Spanish for me
18:40 <PovAddict> so it flooded my RSS reader with a million new items, which are just like the old ones just with spanish descriptions
19:02 *** Haldrik has quit IRC
19:23 *** Caterpillar has quit IRC
19:25 <RomW> Welcome to Trac 0.12.2
19:27 <PovAddict> guess someone never heard of unique identifiers in RSS
19:28 <PovAddict> oh wait, they *are* using GUIDs... maybe they changed? :/
19:28 <RomW> <shrug>
19:29 <PovAddict> I had thousands of unread items in that feed anyway
19:29 <PovAddict> :P
19:29 <RomW> lol
19:30 <PovAddict> if you see me commenting on 3-month-old commits, it means I suddenly got time to go through the queue
19:30 <RomW> Welp, I'm almost done with my revised GUI RPC library... I managed to get the XML parser speed up to 9x faster than the stock BOINC XML parser...
19:31 <RomW> That should cover the cost of the multi-threaded synchronization overhead and then sum
19:31 <PovAddict> nice
19:31 <PovAddict> speaking of speed, did you know strip_whitespace is O(n²) ? :)
19:32 <RomW> chuckle, take it up with David...
19:33 <RomW> Took me long enough to get the GUI RPC library revamped though
19:33 <RomW> ROFLMAO
19:33 <RomW> two years
19:33 <RomW> I wonder how long until I have a new GUI done
19:33 <PovAddict> at least you eventually did it
19:34 <RomW> lol
19:34 * PovAddict purchases http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/unisex/generic/8bad/
19:34 <RomW> Yaeh, I suppose... I thought I would have had more free time to work on it...
19:35 <RomW> Got tired of keeping the documentation in sync with implementation
19:35 <RomW> oh well
19:42 <RomW> nice shirt
19:44 *** freakazoid0223 has quit IRC
19:45 <RomW> It turns out that treating BOINC XML as chunks that can be broken up into dictionary name/value pairs works really well
19:55 <RomW> The other major perf increase came from dividing the dictionary into 32 bit buckets and then using the mod of the middle character in the name field as the key to which bit bucket to store the name/value pair in
