08:26 <Caterpillar> I am studying the BOINC architecture. I have a question. Is it coded to work with GTK libraries or wxWidgets? Or both (if it possible, I don't know)?

08:38 *** chek2fire has quit IRC

09:38 <PovAddict> Caterpillar: the boinc manager uses wxWidgets

09:38 <PovAddict> on Linux, wxWidgets uses GTK

09:38 <Caterpillar> ok

10:23 *** hidgw has quit IRC

10:25 *** hidgw has joined #boinc

10:25 <Caterpillar> PovAddict: so if you build/compile BOINC for Linux, you only have to care about wxWidgets

10:25 <Caterpillar> you don't have to look at GTK

10:26 <Caterpillar> correct?

10:27 <PovAddict> yes

12:07 <Caterpillar> PovAddict: the BOINC for Fedora mantainer told me that BOINC config script requires gtk-devel or it will fail (moreover it requires gtk2-devel even if it wants wxwidgets-3.0) here a screenshot

12:29 <PovAddict> ah

12:29 <PovAddict> I think it uses gtk for some lower-level things that wxwidgets can't do

18:04 *** chek2fire has joined #boinc

18:05 <CoderForLife> wow

18:06 <PovAddict> need to render even bigger :)

18:09 <CoderForLife> how many wus?

18:09 <CoderForLife> how is it broken up?

18:10 <PovAddict> I broke it up in 800x600 tiles, but I should have done them bigger

18:10 <PovAddict> basically it takes RAM proportional to the image size

18:11 *** efc2 has joined #boinc

18:11 <PovAddict> if I want to render at 10000px wide I'd need several dozen gigs of RAM... or split it

18:11 <CoderForLife> interesting

20:41 <zombie67> yay!  credits!

20:48 <PovAddict> I have been discussing with others how to do a proper validator

20:48 <PovAddict> ie. one that actually validates the images

20:54 <PovAddict> zombie67: did you see the result?

20:54 <PovAddict> zombie67:

20:54 <Romulus> <> (at

20:55 <zombie67> very pretty!

20:55 <zombie67> yeah, that is what I figured about the validator.

20:55 <zombie67> heh.  Now, how about stats export?  ;)

20:56 <PovAddict> oh and dunno if you saw: I figured out your crashes

20:56 <PovAddict> the compiler I used is incompatible with Windows XP

20:57 <zombie67> yeah, I saw.   Figured it was that once I saw a completed task with a win7 machine

20:58 <zombie67> even with xp officially dead,  a lot of crunchers still use it.

21:00 *** sethiroth66 has quit IRC

21:03 *** sethiroth66 has joined #boinc

21:21 <PovAddict> hmm

21:21 <PovAddict> I'd like to render with higher quality, but that means longer WUs, and I have no checkpoints...

21:22 <zombie67> my personal opinion:  6 hours w/o checkpoint is not good.  I will do it, to get milestones if I must.

21:23 <zombie67> how long are you talking about?

21:23 <PovAddict> yeah I guess I should figure out how to checkpoint this thing

21:24 <zombie67> how long are you needing these tasks to run?

21:25 <PovAddict> 6 hours would be good, so as you said...

21:30 <zombie67> less that 6 hours w/o checkpoint is fine.  Again, just one opinion.

21:41 <PovAddict> hmm

22:03 <PovAddict> zombie67: I showed somebody the images and he said my computer is high

22:03 <zombie67> heh.  acid trip.

22:04 <PovAddict> [21:24] <shadeslayer> high on DMT

22:04 <PovAddict> [21:24] <PovAddict> it took 16 hours to render

22:04 <PovAddict> [21:25] <shadeslayer> ok, you should take your computer to a doctor, DMT shouldn't last that long

22:04 <PovAddict> [21:25] <PovAddict> my computer barely participated, I used other people's ;)

22:04 <PovAddict> [21:25] <shadeslayer> they should take their computer to a doctor then

22:05 <zombie67> either making funny, or doesn't understand the math
