Does anyone have a theory why not ?

Not a theory, but fact - this site is abandoned.

I have no idea what I started or didn't start. I really don't know anything about Linux or the commands needed to run certain things.

I asked a simple question: did you run "cvmfs_config setup" as described in the guide here Some people (including me) miss this step at first time.
The guide also says "reload the autofs service in order to apply an updated configuration" without specifying how to do this, it should be "systemctl restart autofs". And finally you can check status with "systemctl status autofs"

Looks like you didn't start autofs service. Did you do cvmfs_config setup?

dpkg: error: dpkg frontend is locked by another process

Obviously, there is another process locking dpkg database. And reinstalling the whole system will not help you. Did you install desktop Ubuntu? There is usually process like "apt-daemon" or whatever (i dont remember exactly) which locks dpkg database and don't allow you to use apt-get or even dpkg. This daemon is supposed to be helper for desktop "Software Center" or whatever it is called now or some kind of autoupdater. Just one of the desktop Ubuntu stupidities. Find it, kill it and try again, and do not ignore errors.

PS: Last time I used Ubuntu as a desktop, the first thing I did after installation is to uninstall all that "user-friendly" bloatware daemons, auto-updaters and so on, lol. Good old aptitude (pseudo-graphical version of apt-get) ftw.

PPS: I installed everyting for Theory Native on my home Ubuntu Server 18.04 some days ago and everything is working fine.

it is standard default path for android
use file manager which can access the whole filesystem (probably with root)

My hours also DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY. Appears the sever here at WuProp has shut down most processes as per the server status page most everything is RED:

1. NOBODY CARES about your hours.
2. Server status page was always RED like this for ages

The real problem was a huge amount of "Not analysed" tasks shown on server status page, but that number started decreasing few hours ago (anybody noticed this, eh?), so everything is going to be fine around tomorrow.

host and multiple instances will be banished from WUProp.

It's even worse than before. What if I want to run one "main" instance with CPU apps and a bunch of GCC-only instances (for credits and their badges), and you are going to ban legit main instance too?

Personally, I'd suggest not to grant stars for NCI-apps at all, like keep them in a separate table in account page, but without stars. If someone just wants to collect huge amount of hours in a separate table, they are welcome ;) But without tricky rules, bans, removing hours and other police actions. So every star will be granted for real work done and electricity spent.

PS: What about possible merge of BU apps? There was 14 campaigns, so each application was taken into account up to 14 times with different names, however in fact, they all the same ;)

Einstein app "Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo)" is now been recognised by WuProp as "Binary Radio Pulsar Search", but I believe we're talking about the same app.

Please confirm.


I did a bit more research on this and I found out that project 'Einstein@Home' has recently updated the application 'Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo') for the platform 'Android runnung on ARM'. Ever since this upate, WUProp has been recognising my contribution to this application with a different name: 'Binary Radio Pulsar Search'. I now have CPU hours accounted to 2 different apps that are actually the same.

Can you please correct this issue?

Thank you!

Friendly BUMP
