17:49 <yoyo[RKN]> what does this mean

17:49 <yoyo[RKN]> -226 (0xffffff1e) ERR_TOO_MANY_EXITS

17:52 <PovAddict> afaik this is it:

17:52 <PovAddict> when you call boinc_finish(), the app creates a file to mark that it finished and quits with exit code 0

17:53 <PovAddict> the BOINC client interprets that as a successful quit and uploads the result

17:53 <PovAddict> if the app quits with a non-zero exit code, it's interpreted as a failure and it's reported to the server as a computation error

17:54 <PovAddict> however, if the app quits with a zero exit code but *doesn't* write the 'finished' marker, the client will assume it was a strange spurious quit and restart the app

17:54 <whynot> and here is another story http://boincfaq.mundayweb.com/index.php?language=1&view=83

17:54 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/6wjakgq> (at boincfaq.mundayweb.com)

17:54 <PovAddict> if it has to do that several times, the task is reported as a "too many exists" error

17:54 <PovAddict> exits*

17:55 <PovAddict> whynot: ah, didn't know of the checkpoint part

17:55 <PovAddict> makes sense

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> cputime and elapsed time are 0

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> stderr out

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> <core_client_version>6.12.34</core_client_version>

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> <![CDATA[

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> <message>

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> too many exit(0)s

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> </message>

17:55 <yoyo[RKN]> ]]>

17:57 <whynot> looks like the app doesn't start, I have no such experience, so I can't comment any more

17:57 <yoyo[RKN]> it's only one host

17:58 <PovAddict> too little info to know what's going on

18:00 <PovAddict> lol

18:00 <PovAddict> freehal begging for donations again

18:01 <whynot> during one of PG challanges I've got almost simultaneous 4-way segfault

18:01 <whynot> "one host" doesn't explain anything

18:01 <PovAddict> "Since April 2012 our regular servers are offline after the German police seized them because a hacker could have abused them for illegal purposes."

18:01 <PovAddict> lol

18:02 <whynot> "could have abused" -- I love Germany

18:03 <PovAddict> I thought he had learned something about security after I got his DB password and code-signing private keys, guess not lol

18:03 *** whynot has quit IRC

18:06 <yoyo[RKN]> hmm

18:07 <yoyo[RKN]> in the workunit table is a opaque field of type double

18:07 <yoyo[RKN]> but the create_work binary converts the -opaque parameter with atoi to int :(

18:07 <PovAddict> most file sizes are stored as double too

18:09 * yoyo[RKN] was searching why my different big numbers are always stored as a different number in the opaque field

18:12 <PovAddict> amazing, freehal still uses that stupid pseudolanguage tobias invented, which gets converted into a real language via simple regexes \o/

18:12 <PovAddict> "set new var current_language to 'de'"
