Rakesearch problem

Post by UBT - Chris Suddick » Mon Mar 23, 2020 4:17 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to get Rakesearch going and I'm getting a problem I've not seen before. When I do an update I get an error in the Event Log:

23/03/2020 16:08:52 | Rake search of diagonal Latin squares | Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of RakeSearch for rank 10.

I''ve run this before without any problem. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Chris.

Hi Chris,

Have you ran it recently?

They ran out of 9x9 squares nearly a year ago and changed to 10x10 squares instead. I imagine your app_info file still references the old 9x9 application?

I don't think an app_info file is essential so you could try just renaming it?

Hi Chris

Were you running the Optimised Rakesearch app (as per this messageboard topic):

https://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/fo ... =39&sort=5

This was a tweaked version for the R9 tasks and currently the project is on R10 and there is no optimised version for this.

I would close down BOINC Manager, maybe make a backup copy of your Rakesearch app_info.xml file (that's in your Rakesearch data folder) and move it somewhere safe, then start up BOINC Manager and just reset the Rakesearch project.

regards
Tim

I tried getting rid of the app_info file but it made no difference. So, I decided on a more lateral approach and thought "f*ck it" and decided to do Rosetta instead.

You can really see my technical training coming to the fore there :-)
