IRC logs of #boinc for Friday, 2008-06-20

00:00 *** paul_ has joined #boinc

00:00 <efc> Zotac, its a name you trust

00:02 <Soul_keeper> lo

00:02 <Soul_keeper> lol

00:07 <Soul_keeper>     via is pathetic, they were talking about Isaiah  4yrs ago saying it would be released 2yrs ago

00:07 <Romulus> <> (at

00:07 <Soul_keeper> Texas instruments or someone needs to get into the x86 market

00:10 <efc> I think they dumped the engineering people or something

00:17 *** surrealillusion has quit IRC

00:17 <Soul_keeper> you have to fill out all your personal information to recieve a quote on a 5GHz ibm power6 system

00:18 <efc> Name: Ivan Wakinov

00:20 <Soul_keeper> how much does an entry level IBM power6 system cost (ballpark figure) is all i want to know

00:22 <efc> blade system? workstation?

00:23 <Soul_keeper> The base Express 520 box (technically the 8203 machine in IBM's configurator) comes with one 4.2 GHz core, 2 GB of memory, and two 73.4 GB disks; it costs $5,576

00:24 <Soul_keeper> just a dual core setup price is all i want

00:24 <Soul_keeper> The two-core variant costs $11,765 with 4 GB of memory and two disks

00:25 <Soul_keeper> With four cores in the 520 Express plus 8 GB of memory and the two disks, the cost of the machine rises to $16,994.

00:26 <Soul_keeper> they say the 4.7GHz dual core performs roughly the same as a 2.xGHz c2d

00:35 <efc> if you get a decent vid card on a dell who makes it?

00:51 <efc> the dell 24" is on for $600, the 27" for $800 .. hmm

01:00 <Soul_keeper>

01:00 <Romulus> <> (at

01:02 <efc> If you want flops that bad, start writing VHDL for me :p

01:02 <Soul_keeper> how will that work ?

01:03 <efc> Feed the FPGA machine

01:03 <Soul_keeper> isn't that stuff for caluclators ?

01:03 <efc> Reconfigurable chips

01:03 <Soul_keeper> can you actually make something from that to run boinc ?

01:04 <efc> With a lot of work, yes, I have been looking at it for some time

01:04 <efc> Depends a lot on the app how suitable it is

01:04 <efc> Ideally the app would do an obscene amount of simple work

01:04 <Soul_keeper> can you outperform a core2 quad ?

01:06 <efc> Still working it out, the theoretical peak for one model (~$50) is about 11 gflops, but hard to keep it that busy. Might get half that.

01:06 <efc> So probably not, but they are or would be cheaper, and much less power

01:07 <efc> Its a lot of work though. seti@home is really complicated to do in hardware.

01:08 <Soul_keeper> ic

01:09 <efc> something like the old RC5 project would be excellent. Kick the chestnuts out of any CPU.

01:09 <efc> All integer, low memory bandwidth.

01:11 <efc> I think what you would do is have a hacked BOINC that thinks it has 100 cores

01:11 <efc> And a hacked science app that sends the work to the hardware and reads it back later

01:15 <Soul_keeper> i remember a few years back, someone was selling a giant motherboard with like 50 processors of some kind on it, it was being marketed as a brute force password/encryption cracker

01:15 <Soul_keeper> i wonder what kind of processors those were

01:16 <efc> EFF did something like that for a DES cracker

01:16 <efc> I think they used ASICs for it

01:16 <efc> FPGAs not good enough then

01:17 <efc> ASICs is better of course if you can afford it

01:17 <efc> like, the $50 FPGA i'm looking at has 1.5 million gate equiv, gets around 130 mhz in floating point

01:18 <efc> that nvidia chip has probably 750 million gate equiv @ 1 ghz or more

01:20 <efc> they have a lot better FPGAs but they get expensive, thousands apiece, negates the speed advantage

01:21 <efc> the high end ones have hundreds of multipliers, and a built in PowerPC core or two

01:22 <efc> a couple hundred k onboard ram (cache sort of)

01:23 <Soul_keeper> nice

01:25 <efc> xilinx has a dev board for sale, $1200, hmm, probably a good deal if I knew what I was doing

01:33 <efc> heck the powerPC cores alone sound decent

01:34 <efc> could easily port the app to that core, then (not as easily) slowly break out parts to the other part of the chip

01:41 <efc> yeah, $582 for a Virtex5, no joy

01:48 <efc> but 190 gflops

04:22 <desti> sollte aber gehen boinc on ppc

04:23 <Immundus> yes it should but it keeps saying its an unknown plattform if I try to connect

04:23 <Immundus> and if I use the anonymous plattform

04:23 <Immundus> I get computational errors almost instantly

04:23 <desti> what project?

04:23 <Romulus> I guess what project are we talking about, desti

04:24 <Immundus> seti

04:27 <desti> do you have all needed libs for the application?

04:27 <CoderForLife> brb  breakfast

04:27 <Immundus> installed it from the repository of debian they should supply them

04:28 <Immundus> enjoy CoderForLife

04:29 <desti> they have a seti app too or do you mean boinc framework?

04:29 <Immundus> the whole framework and the seti app

04:31 <Immundus> all installed

04:32 <desti> maybe you should try an third party app

04:32 <Immundus> problem is finding one

08:32 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

08:34 <chanueting> I would like to ask what "GUI RPC bind failed: 98" means

08:51 *** [B^S]renemayer has quit IRC

08:52 *** exco has joined #boinc

08:54 <hawmps> &boincerr 98

08:54 <Romulus> hawmps: Error: I couldn't find 98 in boincerr.

08:55 <hawmps> hmmm...

08:55 <hawmps> dunno..

08:59 <chanueting> Do you use FC9?

09:00 <hawmps> 7/8

09:00 <hawmps> did you install selinux?

09:00 <chanueting> I would like to know how do you set up?

09:01 <chanueting> SELinux, isn't it a default feature?

09:01 <chanueting> Do you follow

09:01 <Romulus> <> (at

09:16 *** PovAdct_w has joined #boinc

09:17 <PovAdct_w> chanueting: GUIRPC bind failed usually means the client is already running and having the GUIRPC port open

09:17 <PovAdct_w> SELinux is of course another to consider

09:18 *** siofwolves has quit IRC

09:21 <chanueting> How to solve it?

09:21 <PovAdct_w> hard to tell if we haven't figured out the real problem yet

09:21 <PovAdct_w> if the client is already running, just don't try to start it again :P

09:21 <chanueting> But shouldn't the GUI RPC port open

09:22 <chanueting> But shouldn't the GUI RPC port open?

09:22 <PovAdct_w> you can't run two clients at the same time

09:24 <PovAdct_w> error 98 is address already in use

09:24 <chanueting> I see, how about SELinux?

09:25 <PovAdct_w> first double-check if there is a boinc process running...

09:25 *** chanueting has quit IRC

09:25 <PovAdct_w> ...

09:25 *** chanueting has joined #boinc

09:25 <hawmps> from a console scree just run 'killall boinc' and see what happens

09:26 <chanueting> with root?

09:26 <hawmps> yes

09:26 <hawmps> or sudo

09:26 <chanueting> boinc: no process killed

09:27 <hawmps> ok - it's all stopped them

09:27 <hawmps> last check... ps ax | grep boinc

09:28 <hawmps> are you running boinc from run_manger?

09:28 <chanueting> I have posted on and all my jobs are suspended

09:28 <Romulus> <> (at

09:29 <chanueting> run_manger?

09:29 <PovAdct_w> run "netstat -ltp" as root and see what program has *:31416 open

09:29 <hawmps> o mheavens - that post - just means seti was offline at the time...

09:30 *** wdsmia_ has joined #Boinc

09:30 <hawmps> pr your dns was fraked at that time

09:30 <chanueting> But there is tcp        0      0 localhost.localdomain:xqosd *:*                         LISTEN      4487/boinc_client

09:30 <PovAdct_w> it couldn't connect to either; so it's a DNS problem, not on SETI's side

09:30 <chanueting> I don't know what is happening, sigh

09:30 <hawmps> that would be my guess too.

09:30 <PovAdct_w> chanueting: then the client is already running, so don't try to start it again

09:31 <PovAdct_w> and you won't get any "GUI RPC bind failed: 98"

09:31 <chanueting> what is the main problem of that error message: Couldn't resolve host name?

09:32 <hawmps> bad dns.

09:33 *** siofwolves has joined #boinc

09:33 <chanueting> what bad dns?

09:33 <chanueting> I can get online

09:33 <PovAdct_w> boinc can't ;)

09:33 <chanueting> how to solve it?

09:34 <chanueting> Is it the reason of firewall?

09:34 <chanueting> I just follow the guide of

09:34 <Romulus> <> (at

09:34 <PovAdct_w> maybe; but I don't recall ever seeing firewalls on Linux doing that kind of stupid thing

09:35 <PovAdct_w> (blocking things per process)

09:35 <chanueting> what is the means of boinc cannot get online?

09:36 <chanueting> Isn't it use the global settings?

09:41 <chanueting> Could you please explain a little bit more?

09:42 <PovAdct_w> if I understood it...

09:42 <chanueting> or is there any solution?

09:45 *** wdsmia has quit IRC

09:45 *** wdsmia has joined #Boinc

09:52 <chanueting> Should I reinstall BOINC?

09:52 *** wdsmia_ has quit IRC

09:52 <PovAdct_w> won't change a thing

09:53 <PovAdct_w> <- enable http_debug in cc_config.xml, restart BOINC; will give more detailed messages about what's going on with the network communication

09:53 <Romulus> <> (at

09:54 <exco> hello

09:55 <chanueting> where the cc_config.xml is?

09:55 <exco> is it normal that there is a php error when opening ..._ops dir "fopen(../cache/remote.revision) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied..." or does it just mean I have my permissions wrong?

09:58 <quail> howdy PovAdct_w

09:58 <PovAdct_w> you have your permissions wrong, exco

09:59 <PovAdct_w> chanueting: unless fedora package has it as an extra... it doesn't exist, you have to make it

09:59 <chanueting> make for what?

09:59 <PovAdct_w> you have to create the file yourself

10:00 <PovAdct_w> not sure where you put it in fedora

10:00 <quail> PovAdct_w: I got my cache sorted out :-)

10:00 <PovAdct_w> quail: different kernel version?

10:01 *** wdsmia_ has joined #Boinc

10:01 <chanueting> is there any command for searching in linux?

10:01 <quail> PovAdct_w: I resetted my bios, I think it had to do with I had acpi 2.0 support turned on

10:02 <quail> PovAdct_w: this how it looks now >>>

10:02 <Romulus> <> (at

10:02 <PovAdct_w> do you have the cache file in /sys now?

10:02 <quail> PovAdct_w: and now I have all the cache directories you were talking about

10:02 <PovAdct_w> cool

10:03 <quail> so it all sweet now

10:03 <quail> PovAdct_w: so it looks like I had something set wrong in my bios

10:03 <PovAdct_w> do you use bash?

10:04 <quail> yes

10:04 <PovAdct_w> for i in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index*; do echo L$(cat $i/level) $(cat $i/type) $(cat $i/size); done

10:08 <exco> thanks, PovAdct_w, shouldn't owner and group be "boincadmin"?

10:09 <exco> well... there just is no file ../cache/remote.revision... that explains that

10:09 <PovAdct_w> it's trying to *create* one and failing

10:09 <chanueting> PovAdct_w: Does it mean that I have to type in  < http_debug>1</ http_debug>?

10:10 <exco> but if "boincadmin" is in apache group and owner of the folder "cache" schouldn't it be able to create said file, PovAdct_w

10:11 <PovAdct_w> chanueting: yes

10:11 <chanueting> Okay

10:11 <PovAdct_w> exco: what's the owner/group/permissions of the cache directory?

10:12 <PovAdct_w> chanueting: should be in /var/lib/boinc right?

10:12 <chanueting> yes

10:12 <chanueting> but how to restart?

10:13 <PovAdct_w> hmm like any other system service; I don't know about Fedora

10:13 <chanueting> I see

10:14 <quail> PovAdct_w: I can't get that to work properly

10:14 *** exco has left #boinc

10:19 <Romulus> Title: Fedora Pastebin - Viewing paste #2900 (at

10:19 <PovAdct_w> seems to work now

10:19 <PovAdct_w> might have been just a temporary DNS problem

10:21 <chanueting> sigh, can I delete the cc_config now?

10:22 <PovAdct_w> yeah

10:22 <PovAdct_w> oh and actually you didn't need to restart

10:22 <PovAdct_w> in boinc manager, Advanced menu, Re-read configuration file

10:22 <chanueting> I had tried that

10:23 <chanueting> Though the PC is back online, there are many jobs are suspended, any ideas?

10:23 <exco> sorry for taking so long, PovAdct_w permission: drwxr-sr-x 2 boincadmin boincadmin 4096 2008-05-13 16:11 cache

10:24 <PovAdct_w> hmm should be g+w

10:24 <PovAdct_w> allow write permission for group

10:25 <PovAdct_w> actually wait...

10:25 <PovAdct_w> ah yeah I'm right... it should have 02770 permissions

10:25 *** wdsmia_ has quit IRC

10:27 <exco> you're the man, PovAdct_w (shame on me)

10:28 <chanueting> PovAdct_w: Is it needed to stop boinc before delete cc_config

10:28 <PovAdct_w> no

10:28 <exco> PovAdct_w: should I apply 770 to the whole projects folder?

10:29 <PovAdct_w>

10:29 <Romulus> <> (at

10:32 <exco> thanks. Set my group wrong (boincadmin instead of boinc)

10:32 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

10:32 <PovAdct_w> the group name doesn't really matter

10:33 <exco> well but apache belongs to boinc not boincadmin

10:33 <PovAdct_w> ah :P

10:33 *** Aeternus has joined #boinc

10:33 <PovAdct_w> doesn't matter what you call it, but call it the same everywhere :D

10:34 <PovAdct_w> what matters is your current permissions didn't allow group to write

10:34 <exco> I'm just trying to follow a tutorial (since I'm not that familiar with linux)

18:37 <mwalling> haha

18:38 <Immundus> isnt there already a boinc for arm?

18:38 <PovAddict> the processor is only the first part of the challenge...

18:39 <PovAddict> many apps are un-portable because the iPhone compiler doesn't properly support C++ exceptions

18:39 <PovAddict> many apps are un-portable because their build system sucks for cross-compilation

18:39 <wdsmia> asks PovAddict to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

18:39 <PovAddict> or because they need libraries that are un-portable for whatever reason :)

18:40 <PovAddict> most apps are just *hard* to port, not impossible

18:40 <PovAddict> recently somebody ported gcc to the iPhone, so maybe that'll help

18:40 <Immundus> well there is a iphone linux project just give them time

18:40 *** BB_Laptop has joined #boinc

18:41 <mwalling> they didnt just get an offtheshelf arm?
