Hi,

will there be an application for 64bit Linux in the near future? Or at least a 32bit app sent to 64bit machines?

Done. I don't have the capability to test it right now, but everything should be just fine.

Great! Thanks Scott!
Runs fine on my Q6600 with 64bit Ubuntu 7.04! :)

That was fast!!!

However, I have bad news from here: all work units fail due to GCC 4.2.0 not found. I have version 4.1.2, is there any chance you could compile it with this instead?
The strange thing is, it works fine on my 32bit Linux laptop, which runs GCC 4.1.2 too.

Edit: Here is the link to the failed wu

OK, no problem. I'll have it up a bit later on today.

Ken, you may just want to upgrade to the latest version of GCC, unless there's some reason you have against it.

EDIT: At any rate, I recompiled the wrapper using static linking, so everything should work fine now.

I will do this as soon as it becomes available for my distro, Gentoo. Unfortunately, it still isn't, and I have no idea why.
Anyway, the new app works perfectly, and I'm now happily crunching C@H on 3 machines :-)

This seems to be a very well-run project so far, keep up the great work! :-D

That's really surprising that portage doesn't have gcc 4.2 yet, since they seem to have everything ASAP.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

64bit Linux seems to be VERY fast on this project! Compared to other machines crunching the same work unit, I generally (actually always), have much lower run times and hence more credit. And the other machines I compare to are often much faster than mine.
Can anyone else running 64bit Linux confirm this? It reminds me of ABC@home!

Hello Kenneth,

I can say it's OK for me also :

My quad 2.88GHz would get something like 3000/day if running Cosmology full time. That's good, but not exceptional. The RieselSieve 64-bit client makes it run 5500/day.
