1) Message boards : Number crunching : CPDN Win10 Compatible ? (Message 52100)
Posted 11 days ago by Profile tullio
Although a Linux user I bought a HP PC with Windows 8, soon upgraded to 8.1. I installed Virtual Box on it and am running 2 CERN projects, SETI@home and CPDN. I've been promised Windows 10 on July 29.

2) Questions and Answers : Preferences : No New Work (Message 52062)

I finished a 32 days task on my Linux box,. Now I have 3 Anz jobs on my Windows PC. One is running together with ATLAS@home and vLHC tasks and two were suspended by me in order not to stop the tasks requiring VirtualBox. So I have plenty of CPDN work on the Windows PC.

Is it possible that you have that PC assigned to a venue, i.e. Home, Work, School and that not all tasks are allowed in that venue? Just a guess.

Yes, it is Home but I have allowed all applications in Home.

Got one HadCM3 short and is running alongside two vLHC@home.

My BOINC is 32-bit. I have reinstalled the former hard disk with a 32-bit OS, 32-bit BOINC and 32-bit VirtualBox. I have completed several CPDN tasks on that disk.

I have allowed all applications, I am still not getting any. I am running 2 vLHC@home tasks, but they only take 256 MB each and I have a 8 GB RAM. No other projects are running now on this 32-bit OS on a 64-bit Opteron 1210 CPU. OS is SuSE Linux 13.1, BOINC 7.2.41. VirtualBox 4.3.24.

This is the message I get on my main Linux box:
No applications available for your OS.
I've read that CPDN applications will be committed to a single OS because of the differences in numeric computations depending on the OS used,hence there will be mainly Windows programs rather than Linux or Mac OS X applications.
If CPDN used a Virtual Machine like CERN does, they should have only one OS in which they run their projects and there would be no compatibility issues. CERN uses Scientific Linux.

The only solution is to adopt a Virtual Machine model, like CERN does. Its Scientific Linux programs can run on Windows, Mac OS X and other Linux distros systems using a a "wrapper" built by CERN around Virtual Box.

You could install Virtual Box on a Windows host and then build a Linux Virtual Machine. I do it currently.

CERN has launched a new project, CernVM_WebAPI, which runs on Virtual Box also outside of BOINC and is hoping to get more volunteers to crunch data coming from LHC but also other particle accelerators. Data processing is becoming a problem for high energy physics research and astronomy, so the physicists and astronomers welcome the volunteers donating time and processing power.
