At this point in the project Scott's main focus is to get a stand alone version of windows camb to work and that very well may solve many of the HR issues.


Ahmm, does that 'stand alone' mean without BOINC?





LOL NO! Right now it is a fortran program with a Boinc windows wrapper around it. Thats why the checkpoints are internal to the program and not displayed in Boinc and no progress bar. By stand alone I meant a windows version totally integrated with Boinc.

Edit-I apologize for assuming everyone knew what I was talking about with stand-alone because I forgot there are a lot of new users here.

OK, "stand alone" doesn't mean the same everywhere... :)

Using a wrapper isn't neccessarily the cause for not having a progress bar - look at Riesel.

I'm not a programmer, I just wonder if it might be easier to improve the wrapper so it passes the status on to boinc?

That's what I was wondering, and I know Scott has spent hours and hours on trying to create a native BOINC Windows client (for more than a month, I believe). Your suggestion appears to make sense, so Scott can move onto other project priorities.

Of course, just imho! ;)

Actually, the code I have works just fine. The problem we're having is with the free Windows Fortran 90 compilers we were attempting to use (none of them seem to work very well at all, or at least as nicely as they do on Linux). However, just recently we purchased a brand, spanking new version of the Intel Fortran Compiler for Windows, so we should be moving along nicely!

Scott may have to look at the Sempron/Linux as a separate issue perhaps?


I can only hope.

That is great news indeed! :)

Any idea when we might have the app to test ourselves?

Schould give us a little better performance too - at least on Intel cpus...

If so, you also need a Linux version. :)

Message 3143 - Posted: 7 Oct 2007, 18:16:50 UTC

This wingman downloaded 26 wu's sept 27 and has only returned 4 with the rest having a oct 7 (today) deadline. How many times are the wu's reissued or aborted from "no reply" from wingmen ? I guess in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter as long as the quorum is finally met and the wu is used.

As soon as I'm able to get the BOINC fortran interface working in Windows. I swear, portability is the most frustrating aspect of programming, even more than memory management.

Message 3186 - Posted: 9 Oct 2007, 23:53:01 UTC

I'd sure like to put a period ("full stop" if you're British) to this topic. Since the last stoppage for general catch-up a week or so ago, the mechanism for distributing completed WU's to be validated << SEEMS >> to be working better. It may just be me, but it seems as though work is getting validated faster. I find my boxen working about as much on validating as original work.

If it's luck, well, lucky me! If it's something Scott did, good job!

Common hardware/software hosts seem to be validating promptly.

Try this for size though running Linux:

AuthenticAMD
Unknown CPU Typ [Family 6 Model 10 Stepping 0]

These are overclocked Athlon XP processors, mainly XP-M (mobiles) but not exclusively. My host (3330) and host 3683 are the ONLY wingmen for each other.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank him :)

If these don't go out in the next week or so, you have my permission to put them out of their misery.

I wonder why my AMD X2 with Linux have so big problems getting any wingmen.
X2s should be in the same group as A64 and Opterons, aren't they?
The very few wing brothers it has gotten are all X2s.

I have AMD Opterons on Linux and have very low Pendings, plus I get paired with other AMD types as well as the Opterons. So don't know why you are having trouble.
One perhaps for you to work out Scott?
Possibly left an old HR group in there that should of been melded into the bigger AMD pool?

EDIT: Sorry, I just checked and all mine have been validated with other Opteron computers. I was sure that the X2's were included in this group.
I think they could still be but a preference may go to the actual processor that is being reported??? Could be wrong there though.
