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.

It is a ghost unit. You need not to do anything.

I am running SuSE 32-bit Linux on a box with 8 GB RAM. It is running Test4Theory@home which needs the installation of Virtual Box, CPDN and SETI@home Astropulse only. But it also has a Solaris Virtual Machine with 2 GB RAM, very rarely used because there are no BOINC applications on Solaris, and a Ubuntu 12.04 Virtual Machine with 1 GB RAM. This has Virtual Box installed and runs only Test4Theory@home, which needs only 256 MB RAM. So most of the RAM of the host box is still free.

Most Test4Theory@home users are Windows users and they run CERN Linux jobs without ever suspecting it in their Virtual Machines. All you have to do is to download Virtual Box and its Extension Pack, connect your BOINC client to Test4Theory@home and the rest is automatic. I run T4T on a HP laptop with SuSE 12.3 and BOINC 6.10.58. and a SuSE 13.1 SUN WS with BOINC 7.2.41. This same hosts a Ubuntu 12.04 Virtual Machine with BOINC 7.2.42. All work well.
