Gotcha. I should have known, but I\'ve never graduated beyond the use of cp. :P

The only problem I see remaining is that all of the windows computers that have downloaded the previous (non-existant) camb_2.13_windows_intelx86.exe will not attempt to download it again as long as the version # remains the same, correct?

Is there any server side flag you can set that will force them to re-download it on the scheduler call or will it be necessary to reset the project on hosts that already have it?

The alternative would be to index the app to 2.14 and create a whole new batch of WUs I suppose, but I\'m really just guessing at this point.

After contacting the server I still have a 0KB camb_2.13_windows_intelx86.exe file. I deleted the 0KB file but boinc just downloaded yet another 0KB file

Try resetting the project if you have no work on that host ;)

So far the 2.13\'s I\'ve seen on my Box\'s have run okay, their on a Intel Q6700 & Linux Ubuntu v8.04. Luckily I hope, the same Wu\'s are on another Box of mine, a Intel Q6600 running Linux Ubuntu v8.04 but it will be a little while before that Box get to them as it has quite a few 2.12\'s still on it ... :)

Message 6717 - Posted: 23 Jul 2008, 11:21:35 UTC - in response to Message 6698.  

Q6600 on Vista x64 here. In one of the slots\\ dir\'s, I can see a camb_2.13_windows_intelx86.exe which is about 1kb large. Perhaps that\'s the issue?

Possibly. Is anybody having problems with the linux versions?


I can\'t get the Linux versions to download/install at all. Reset or deleting files makes no difference, just endless \"No work from project\" messages. 2.12 was working, but since the switch to 2.13 all my Linux hosts are dead to this project, regardless of CPU class, speed, or memory.

Not to worry, it\'s the message I have grown used to on Windows as well. I haven\'t seen any 2.13s or 2.14s, only the ever repeated and dreaded...

Well, this seems like something to worry about: I finally started getting work for 2.13 and so far about a dozen units have all failed with \"client error\". Not a one has completed successfully. That\'s on three different machines, P3 and P4, all Linux.

You can cancel the 2.13s, they\'re no good because of a bug. New work will bring version 2.14, which works just fine so far. But is also good for a lot less credit [per hour], in case you care about that.

I would let them just error because they only run for a second or 2 before erring out, I say that because all the 2.13\'s I have received have run okay to completion & I\'ve even received Credit on some of them already.

So not all of the 2.13\'s are bad ... :)

According to the application list, there is no 2.14 for Linux. This is starting to look pretty ridiculous. If all 2.13 work units are no good, why can\'t the admins just take them all out of the database instead of wasting so much time on letting them all fail?

I interrupted C@h on my machines because of dozens of WU with errors since July, 23rd. 2.13 and 2.14 on running on linux and Boinc 5.10.21...
What is going on there?

Ok, After a look it seems that the downloaded file \"camb_2.14_i686-pc-linux-gnu\" is empty. Hu?

Yup. All 2.13 units failed here as soon as they started execution. Now 2.14 units are doing the same thing. Instant failure. Evidently the Linux application doesn\'t get adequate testing.

I have so far not seen a directive to abort 2.13 work units for linux.

I am currently processing quite a few of them but have now struct a few problems.

A lot of the work units will run for hours befor the progress metre moves, in one case it ran for 3 hours 40 minutes before going from 0.00% to 48% and them later completing ok.

Another just sat at 6 seconds completed and said it was running but nothing was happening so after I don\'t know how many hours I aborted that one.

They all run for usually 6 hours or more and all say completed successfully and then go into pending.

I have had no credit from these latest work units that go over 20,000 seconds they go to pending.

When another computer completes their work unit we both then get ZERO for our 6 hour efforts. Error message is \"WU Error, Check Skipped\".
Examples are
10713915
10713923
10713969
10715970

Also a lot of these work units are claiming well past 70 credits due to the length of processing time, are they going to be given an increase in granted credit to compensate?

I am running AMD Opteron 275 and 285 computers with Linux Fedora Core 3 and Fedora Core 6.

Actually, on all the work units it says: errors Too many success results

I must say, that\'s a new one for me. How can one have too many successful results? If it were errors, it would be \'normal\'.

Well another four can be added to this.
Not only showing \"WU Error, Check Skipped\" but as pointed out by a few others now also showing \"Too Many Success Results\".
It is nice to get a successful result but how can you have Too Many?

10715358
10713961
10713959
10711443

Also the amount of results sent out for any one job is set to 4 but often 6 or more have been sent, this is more than likely why the validator is having trouble.
I would still like my credit though and more than the 70 credits as I have claims going to 99.
