1) Message boards : Number crunching : Shutting BOINC Down on a Linux Box ??? (Message 7412)
Posted 27 Sep 2020 by Profile DoctorNow
Now I need a command to start the BOINC Manager or do I have to install that from the software package ??? The command that the terminal gives me to start BOINC doesn't work ? (cd "/home/steve/BOINC" && exec ./boinc $@) ...

I also use Ubuntu 18.04, but as OS for VirtualBox under Windows.
It was way easier to install BOINC completely over the software library, since you can start it up almost like on Windows then - in that way Ubuntu 18.04 is very user-friendly. (compared to the openSuse distros I used before)
No commands necessary most of the time.

Really weird thing there...
It should either be merged into 1_Gaia@home or shown as-is - but it shouldn't stay hidden :-)

Well, if this continues (another 1_Gaia@home clone showed up) it could get a lot of work for Sebastian to merge them every time - although he did that for several projects in the past already...

I processed over 100 work units of Gaia@home 1_Gaia@home, some running over an hour each but only 0.25 hours has been recorded. Have waited for 2 updates but it has not changed.

Well, it probably has something to do with a different app name, current one is exactly called: 1_Gaia@home[20200817.12]
Done also work for this app but it's not recorded.

I think the tasks may be too short to register with the WUProp app. Even if they do, I think for CPU tasks WUProp measures CPU time, which is less than a tenth of a second per task.

So I guess it's not worth running them, since like this one can't reach 100 hours even with a small farm...;-)

I screwed up and thought it as a stand alone Project like Folding so downloaded it and found it installed itself inside my Boinc Manager ...

Isn't Charity Engine a kind of account manager like BAM!?
If so, then it should be removable like BAM! also.
Sorry if I'm wrong here.

Hehe, being an ATA is clearly an addiction... ;-)

... is there a list somewhere showing every project and app with them?

That's why WUProp is here more or less. Of course not every project/app is listed here automatically, but following some threads here helps a lot to get them.

Or is it more of a search and find thing? In the past I've gone thru Free DC to go thru the top crunchers list to find new Projects but that seems labor intensive, especially since ALOT of them have closed down.

You don't need to check specific crunchers, it's more checking forums and team chats/talks to find new projects/apps. There are several sources I had in the past to get to this level where I am now. Plus sometimes you can even have the luck to find a project yourself - if you know what to search for.

You can pretty much sum up what's just mentioned from the others, it's a combination of everything to get enough apps - rest is assured.
Unfortunately projects today are getting more rare, so everyone who starts now to collect apps will probably need a lot of time to come to a similar level like the (current) top users here - if at all, that depends on so many factors...

Not sure if anybody made it, I only managed 21 Hr's myself...

Yup, same here - I had only one GPU set on the project.
So theoretically it would have required at least 5 graphic cards at the same time running for it.
How's about zombie? ;-)

My final update for a while, because nothing else is anywhere close to being upgradable.

Same goes for me. Managed to get my 12th ruby star yesterday for having 24 apps with 1.000 hours but that was it.
Don't know what to upgrade next, I'm letting things happen while hunting for some badges (upgrades) on other projects.

The project Machine Learning Comprehension@Home at https://www.mlcathome.org/mlcathome/ has launched.

Well, this is somehow suspicious to me:
I wanted to add this per BM as new user, but got:
"This email-adress is already in use".
But when trying to add it as existing user, it doesn't work.
And then: trying to log in on the homepage leads to: "no such existing account"

???

Edit:
I created my account now over the website, adding it to BM now did work.
Strange thing...

Just noticed I have a second Saphire badge, which means at least 40 apps with 5.000 hours. Must have been a few weeks ago, but a new "little" milestone for me. ;-)

Can't connect to project or connect computers to project ...

Probably BOINC version related. Try a version above 7.9.x

Might be Boinc version dependant. I attached 2 machines through the Boinc manager using 7.14.2 no problem but couldn't attach using Boinc version 7.6.6 on a different machine.

First time I've ever heard about this but it seems to be true.
I could attach with my 7.14-version on Win 10 but not with the "old" 7.6.22 on my Win 7-host.
I wonder what server software they use there. On the status page it says 1.1.0 but database version is missing - and when I compare that to other projects it never mentions 1.1.0.
If that is a brand new server software version with special requirements then this should be documented.

Nice!
But doesn't look as if attaching is possible right now - there seems to be a problem obviously...
Tried it a few times since you posted.

Edit:
At least manual account creation per homepage does work.

Ah, nice, thanks also, Conan!
Looks like I almost missed the post since I didn't look up here for a few days. ;-)

Well, no probs here so far:
QuChemPedIA@home NWChem long 54.73 41.03

Although I'm not completely sure with the hours yet.
There are different versions for the app, especially the (new) 0.19 Linux one which obviously is separated into versions on how much cores it can use (1,2,4 or 8). Maybe the multiple cores are not calculated correct.

I'm beginning to miss the "actual milestones per month" post from Conan. ;-)
The last one is now 8 months ago...
Any chance for an update, Conan?

A late congrats zombie for this milestone.

Finally, after exactly nine months I gained one more bronze star and reached 380 apps with over 100 hours. Wonder how long it will take to get the 20th...

Looks like it is being combined here after all.

Unfortunately it does, I see it counted to my other app now.
Although it should be counted as new app since there were several GPU apps from Einstein in the past that were separated from the original runs.

<--

Well, that took a while, but finally I have the 4th green (or is it called emerald?) star. :-)
Next goal may be the second blue/saphir star.


Next 20
