I've no idea what that was about. WUProp couldn't upload a completed packet and the home page on here only showed part of the page and loads of SQL errors.

A couple of minutes later, it was all working again.

Probably just a fault in the GCHQ / NSA monitoring software interfering with the data flow.

I take it there's a poorly database behind the scenes?

Woot! Indeed, v4.19 (32 bit) has been running on this PC for 49 minutes. :-)

Where in the commercial software sector could you get this kind of user diagnosis and prompt supplier fix?

So presumably, if one downloads

http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/download/data_collect_v4_418_i686-pc-linux-gnu__nci

into

/var/lib/boinc-client/projects/wuprop.boinc-af.org

and uses it to overwrite data_collect_v4_418_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__nc (or vice versa as appropriate), it might work?

It is indeed a 64-bit distro with 32-bit libraries installed in addition.

So the 32-bit app is the 64 bit app, and the 64 bit app is the 32 bit app? Oops! :-D

The Data Collect version 4 application was updated to v4.18 at 6:36 this morning. Link: Applications.

I'm wondering why my Xubuntu box is managing to process a v4.18 packet.

What do you have in /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/wuprop.boinc-af.org ?

On the PC that is failing, there is just 'cache'.


On another PC that is working (Xubuntu 14.04.2) there is:

# sudo ls -la /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/wuprop.boinc-af.org
total 1696
drwxrwx--x 2 boinc boinc 4096 Mar 13 11:53 .
drwxrwx--x 19 boinc boinc 4096 Jan 11 22:18 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 boinc boinc 21030 Mar 13 13:03 cache
-rwxr-xr-x 1 boinc boinc 812136 Jul 1 2013 data_collect_v3_3.52_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__nci
-rw-r--r-- 1 boinc boinc 22029 Mar 13 13:03 data_collect_v4_1426193401_8661_0_0
-rwxr-xr-x 1 boinc boinc 851997 Mar 13 11:53 data_collect_v4_418_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__nci

so it may only be 32-bit PCs that are failing.

However,

$ sudo ls -la /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/wuprop.boinc-af.org
total 44
drwxrwx--x 2 boinc boinc 4096 Mar 13 08:48 .
drwxrwx--x 18 boinc boinc 4096 Jan 13 12:43 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 boinc boinc 33280 Mar 13 07:26 cache

Shouldn't there be a data_collect_v4_418_i686-pc-linux-gnu__nci in there?

The problem is a path error in v4.18

Process creation (../../projects/wuprop.boinc-af.org/data_collect_v4_418_i686-pc-linux-gnu__nci) failed: Error -1, errno=8
execv: Exec format error

I have no /projects/wuprop.boinc-af.org/

On this Linux Xubuntu PC it is installed elsewhere:

$ locate wuprop.boinc-af.org
/var/lib/boinc-client/account_wuprop.boinc-af.org.xml
/var/lib/boinc-client/job_log_wuprop.boinc-af.org.txt

Resetting the project has made no difference.

I was getting:
Fri 13 Mar 2015 08:28:56 GMT | WUProp@Home | Output file data_collect_v4_1426193401_1730_0_0 for task data_collect_v4_1426193401_1730_0 absent

Now it is just:
Fri 13 Mar 2015 08:51:42 GMT | WUProp@Home | This computer has finished a daily quota of 1 tasks

I just did a Linux upgrade and WUProp failed and WUProp packets kept failing.

<core_client_version>7.2.42</core_client_version>
<![CDATA[
<message>
process exited with code 8 (0x8, -248)

</stderr_txt>
]]>

But now I get "This computer has finished a daily quota of 2 tasks". I'm sure it'll be OK tomorrow, I was just surprised to see there is a quota.
