Re: Formula BOINC Sprint #10

Here's a performance graph since the morning after sprint start. I've actually skipped out the top 4 teams, since they are some ways ahead of us already. Rosetta is generally a popular project, so there are a lot of people contributing that don't even know about the sprint! http://www.ukboincteam.or...

Re: QuChem prob

Err ... that will be a problem, since I crunch it on zero priority (i.e. with no cache!).

Re: QuChem prob

I think they don't put all jobs in VBOX, and VBOX has been a problem for people in the past. It runs natively in Linux though (no VBOX required!), so that's by far the best way to do it ... but I guess you don't usually run Linux. Sorry, I don't usually use the VBOX version.

Re: NEW BOINC Manager version 7.16.7

That -pl command does talk about being able to enable persistent mode, but I have never managed to make it work. I also generally under-clock my GPUs outside of sprints. Running Nvidia-smi afterwards shows the power level is reduced. Are you not seeing that? Or is it not true? It is reduced until r...

Re: NEW BOINC Manager version 7.16.7

Yeah, I noticed that too - from 2014! I suppose that Software Manager in Mint is a package manager, so they pull in more recent versions over time. I've never tried docker. Hi Damien When I installed Mint on my Xeon box for a previous Sprint, I used the "built-in" Software Manager to install AnyDes...

Re: NEW BOINC Manager version 7.16.7

That may well work, although I see that it's an unofficial / untrusted package i.e. there's no way to verify what has been compiled into that package. This page below suggests that 7.16 is still 'in development' for Linux. I'd just leave it, unless you experience a problem. https://boinc.berkeley.ed...

Re: Boinc on Linux

I just learnt a new bunkering tactic! I had no idea that it was possible - or desirable - to upload completed work sometime before actually reporting it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EO2y1d0CEtw&t=321s) Regarding the boinc launch issue, sounds like it's sorted. I checked the commands though, and...

Re: Boinc on Linux

Sounds like the boinc daemon (service) isn't running.

How did you install boinc / boinc manager? Did you use the software manager within Mint?

Re: Why Linux p*$$e$ me off....

Yes ... it took quite a bit of banging one's head on the keyboard to get over the hump with Linux. Fine once you're there, but there are lots of different ways of doing things and it does seem near impossible to avoid doing some things in the terminal. Generally speaking though, software is installe...

Re: Running multiple copies of Boinc.

Just adding to this: if using BOINC Manager to talk to your 'orginal' boinc.exe process, that's

Re: WCG Crush Covid-19 challenge

What are the chances that we could get a sub-project like this selected for the FB sprint? I know we have had WCG already, but it would be great to pull FB focus onto this!

I'm waiting for a SIM card so I can get my LTE modem/router going again. It's in the mail. Should get it Monday, hopefully.
