Running Archlinux on core 2 duo E8500 with Boinc 7.6.33
VT-x supported and enabled
Virtualbox 5.1.22r115126 installed and detected by Boinc
All apps enabled in my cosmology@home profile

Yet I'm only getting camb_legacy tasks.

Suggestions on how to debug this?

The only thing slightly unusual about my system is that Boinc's dir /var/lib/boinc is a bind mount of /home/boinc, but I don't see how that would create any issue.

Thanks

I've received Planck work units. We'll see how they compute.

How can I stop getting legacy WUs??? All my rigs are Win7-64 with mostly Xeon 24-28 core CPUs. One rig only gets 6-CPU WUs but several only get legacy jobs. I have boinc_7.8.2_windows_x86_64_vbox installed on all rigs.

Go to Your Account, Preferences for this project (Cosmology@Home preferences) , edit preferences and set camb_legacy to No.

Set
If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?
to No also.

Thanks Jonathon, I didn't see the camb_legacy option until I clicked on All Applications. Giving it a try now.
