14:12 *** _|Nix|_ has joined #boinc

14:13 <_|Nix|_> Hi! I'm trying to get boinc running on Fedora 18. However, when I run service boinc start, I get: Failed to issue method call: Unit boinc.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status boinc.service' for details.

14:14 <PovAddict> as far as I know there isn't a native systemd unit for boinc, but it should be using the init.d script with no problems...

14:14 <_|Nix|_> Neither recommendation from that message contains any useful information.

14:16 <_|Nix|_> PovAddict: Well, it seems that Fedora 18 has added it because the contents of the rpm lists nothing in /etc/init.d/ but it does list /usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client.service

14:17 *** whynot has joined #boinc

14:17 <_|Nix|_> If only I could figure out where that "No such file or directory" is coming from ...

14:18 <PovAddict> hm interesting

14:18 <PovAddict> does that file actually exist on your machine?

14:18 <microchip_> try systemctl start boinc-client.service

14:19 <PovAddict> ah yes

14:19 <_|Nix|_> PovAddict: It does exist.

14:19 <PovAddict> it's boinc-client, not boinc

14:19 <_|Nix|_> PovAddict: I'm looking at it. It has some command lines in it.

14:19 <PovAddict> 'service boinc-client start' should work

14:20 <_|Nix|_> PovAddict: Right.

14:20 <_|Nix|_> PovAddict: That did it.

14:20 <_|Nix|_> PovAddict: Now as for the GUI ...

14:22 <_|Nix|_> OK ... so I can't connect by opening localhost and pasting the contents of /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg as the password.

14:23 <_|Nix|_> So, boinc_client is listening on localhost:31416 ...

14:23 <_|Nix|_> I can connect to that port via telnet ...

14:25 <_|Nix|_> Maybe I should run boinc_gui from a terminal ... maybe it outputs something on stderr ...

14:30 <_|Nix|_> So, boinccmd --host localhost --passwd xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx --get_simple_gui_info seems to work, since it lists projects and tasks (of which I have none, but at least it correctly shows that).

17:07 *** mapreri has quit IRC

17:07 <froggyman> I just updated CCC and have the latest version of BOINC, yet Einstein@home doesn't seem to be using my GPU

17:08 <froggyman> I even have it set to use GPU while computer is in use

17:09 <PovAddict> go to the einstein@home web settings and see if you set it to only give you work for some applications

17:09 <PovAddict> only "Binary Radio Pulsar Search" is available for GPUs

17:10 <PovAddict> "Gamma-ray pulsar search #2" and "Gravitational Wave S6 LineVeto search" are CPU-only

17:11 <froggyman> ahh, that would explain it

17:11 <froggyman> PovAddict: thanks

17:22 <froggyman> 4TFlops away

17:22 <froggyman> :O

18:24 <froggyman> Tank_Master: well it was... now it's 7tflops away

18:24 <Tank_Master> nice

18:24 * froggyman has a feeling that slashdot probably caught a bit of attention for the project

18:24 <froggyman> It isn't advertised very well though IMO... I go to school there and I've never heard of it

21:30 <efc> Another P4 is back from the dead. Arise...

21:30 <efc> And heat my basement while running 5 month overdue WUs...

21:30 <PovAddict> wtf

21:30 <PovAddict> abort those

21:31 <efc> there's nothing to replace them with, no work from project

21:31 <PovAddict> there are other projects

21:32 <efc> this is the one that got hit by lightning.. had some stale WUs on it

21:32 <PovAddict> anything would be more useful than 5-month overdue WUs :P

21:38 <efc> hm, for astropulse, does it still run automatically? I'm reading the FAQ and it seems out of date, tells me to edit a preference that I can't find.

21:39 <zombie67> the project is not likely to accept those tasks

21:39 <PovAddict> the 5-month-overdue ones? they're probably not even in the server database anymore

21:39 <efc> I get it.

21:40 <PovAddict> efc: http://wstaw.org/m/2013/01/03/plasma-desktopha4970.png ?

21:41 <efc> Is that on the manager GUI or the web page? FAQ indicates its the web preferences.

21:41 <PovAddict> webpage

21:42 <PovAddict> the local GUI is unaware of available applications

21:43 <efc> ah, I want preferences for this project.

21:44 <efc> Thats better, thanks.

21:45 <efc> wonder how long they'll keep some of the old apps around. I get the feeling s@h enhanced is pretty long in the tooth now.

21:47 <froggyman> does BOINC report finished WUs automagically?

21:47 <PovAddict> froggyman: yes

21:47 <PovAddict> froggyman: but it doesn't report WUs immediately after finishing them, because it's more efficient to report many at once

21:47 <PovAddict> so it waits until a few accumulate

21:48 <froggyman> ahh, alright. Is there any way to force an  update if I know I'll be away from internet for a while?

21:52 <PovAddict> froggyman: if you're using the simple view, click on Project Commands and select Update: http://wstaw.org/m/2013/01/03/plasma-desktopHl4970.png

21:52 <PovAddict> froggyman: if you're using the advanced view, go to the Projects tab, select the project, and click Update: http://wstaw.org/m/2013/01/03/plasma-desktopFR4970.png

21:52 <Tank_Master> in the gui, click the ptojects tab, the click the project, and click update

21:52 *** simone_ has quit IRC

21:52 <froggyman> PovAddict: thanks :)

21:54 <froggyman> Oooo... 8 credit :O

21:55 <PovAddict> you saw your credit increase after clicking update?

21:55 <froggyman> well... it's pending credit

21:56 <PovAddict> ah

21:56 <PovAddict> I thought you meant in the manager :)

21:57 <froggyman> Why is it pending credit?

21:57 * froggyman wants instant gratification

21:58 <PovAddict> the server has to check if what you reported is correct, usually by comparing it against what someone else uploaded

21:58 <froggyman> ahh, so multiple machines will be assigned the same job?

21:58 <PovAddict> yes

21:58 <PovAddict> what project are you running?

21:59 <froggyman> Einstein
