09:01 <Q-collective> hi all

09:01 <Q-collective> so, in an effort to solve my threading issue, I removed all traces of boinc from my Ubuntu install and reinstalled it

09:02 <Q-collective> after reinstall it no longer came with an init script though, so now I'm unable to run it at all .. ?

09:09 <desti> hä?

09:15 <Q-collective> ok, was looking in the wrong directory, as Ubuntu 15.04 switched from Upstart to Systemd. So the directory is no longer /etc/init.d or /etc/init but /usr/systemd/system

09:15 <Q-collective> so it lives there

09:15 <Q-collective> anyway, I keep getting messages in boincmgr that the client is crashing and if I want to restart it

09:17 *** ChanServ sets mode: -o CoderForLife

09:18 <CoderForLife> Q-collective does the boincmgr event log give any clues?

09:19 <Q-collective> where does the log sit?

09:19 <Q-collective> looking in /var/log now, but not seeing it

09:20 <Q-collective> there are boinccer.log and binc.log files though, I'll have a look at those

09:20 <Q-collective> both are empty :)

09:25 <desti> start boinc direct

09:26 <CoderForLife> use the --verbose comand line switch as well

09:29 <Q-collective> running boincmgr --verbose doesn't give me any output whhen I hit the crash message

09:31 <Q-collective> and the boinc command has no --verbose switch

09:31 <Q-collective> running both boinc and boincmgr also gives me no extra output in the terminal

09:33 <Q-collective> this is what I get running boinc:

09:33 <Romulus> Title: $ boinc 06-Jun-2015 15:29:33 [---] cc_config.xml not found - using defaults 0 - (at

09:35 <Q-collective> $ boinccmd --get_project_urls

09:35 <Q-collective> can't connect to local host

09:38 <CoderForLife> have you googled this?  "unbuntu boinc can't connect"

09:40 <Q-collective> hmm, the version I have installed is 7.4.23 (installed via apt-get), wheras the the version listed on the boinc website is 7.2.42?

09:54 <Q-collective> ok, removed the version installed via apt-get and downloaded the version from the boinc site and running that locally. Now it is running again, but it is only using one thread (out of 12).

09:56 <Q-collective> and up to two threads again, let's see if this goes up further

10:04 <desti> has it downloaded more wus?

10:06 <Q-collective> it has download 10 more, but they are queued, only two are currently running
