1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Climateprediction.net don't start (Message 49960)
Posted 16 days ago by Profile tullio
Fot the first time I am running a 64-bit Windows OS. But the climateprediction.net units start without problem, 4 of them at a time on my new PC with A10-6700 4 core CPU. Does Windows 8.1 have the compatibility libraries installed by default?

I am not a Windows lover, but it gets me a nice screensaver.
2) Questions and Answers : Windows : Suddenly 100% CPU usage (Message 49875)

I never used an antivirus on my 2 Linux boxes. Now I am using a HP PC with 64-bit Widows 8/8.1 and I get messages from Norton saying that HP has put an antivirus on it and it exhorts me to activate it. But I am running 4 BOINC projects on it and I don't want that any antivirus can interfere with them. I shall take the risk.

I have 100% CPU usage on my newest CPU, AMD A10-6700 running 4 BOINC projects, two with Virtual Box, on Windows 8.1 but I get no warning messages.Only Einstein@home in its binary radio pulsar search uses very little CPU since it uses the graphics board, a HD 8670D by AMD/ATI.

I am running 7 BOINC projects on 32-bit Linux on 2 real machines and one Virtual Machine, including also Virtual Box. I don't have to install any compatibility library. If CPDN goes 64-bit I shall abandon it. I have also a 64-bit Solaris Virtual Machine on my 64-bit Opteron 1210 but no BOINC project is available on Solaris.

If it actually only had 100 hours to go, a little over 450 hours total might not be a bad estimate for his computer, which is averaging 12 sec/TS for the ANZ model.

But at 50%, and 366 hours, there has to be a problem.

Anyway I aborted it and am waiting for a new unit, while running SETI@home Astropulse and Test4Theory@home.

Probably in a loop. They don't last THAT long.


Should I abort it?

I have a hadam3p_anz unit at 50% after 366 hours on my SuSE Linux box.Oddly enough, estimated completion time is given as 107 hours only. How come?

14.04 is running fine for me and has been since alpha. :)

I wonder what, "a small number of power users (which I am not) means?

Probably means "early adopters". I am still using Ubuntu 12.04 on my Virtual Machine, but I have downloaded 14.04 and was interested in learning if it has any problem. I am using SuSE Linux 13.1 on my main host and 12.3 on a laptop, so I am nor really an expert on Ubuntu. I had installed Ubunto 13.10 first but when I found an Amazon icon on it, I reverted to 12.04.

Last night I set up Ubuntu 14.04 in VMWare Player on one machine. Linux is a bit tricky, with me being used to Windows all my life. That being said, the "floodgates" (so to speak) will be opened up for this app once a Windows version is released! Hopefully that is in the works?

Theregister.co.uk signals some boot failures in this Ubuntu release. You might read it to learn what to do.

... there are no BOINC applications on Solaris ...

Didn't someone create a Solaris binary for SIMAP? Currently I cannot check it, SIMAP seems to have a downtime.

Dotsch provides BOINC for Solaris plus a SETI project client plus DotschUX, a preBOINCified Linux distribution

Yes, I have a BOINC client 6.12.24 by Dotsch on my Solaris but I don't get any SETI@home v7.07 app. Same for Test4Theory@home. It's a pity, since Solaris is a very solid OS.
