I would have been happy with 420 creds, however this WU only got 200. *sob sob* ;-)

I am using Xubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) 64-bit.
And I admit I'm afraid of Grub. *smiles*

PS. I think I won't stop crunching under Linux but maybe I have to stops Cosmo for a while.
And if I'm tired of Linux I can always boot into Vista 32-bit again - but in fact Vista is not my favorite either, that's why I installed Linux. *LOL*

PS2: I had another look at the Memtest link: if I download an *.iso file I'll have to burn it on a CD or DVD and boot from that, right?
When I feel brave enough I might still give it a try.

Check the other options in that FAQ. It may be a problem with your memory or swap file, especially if the computers those tasks are sent to now can finish those tasks without a problem (thereby scratching bad batch of tasks off the list)...


I don't know how to check my memory or swap file, I don't even know where the swap file is located under Linux.
I followed the Memtest link but when choosing what to download there I am at a loss, too.
I bet I should stop crunching with Linux... it's fine when having no problems but I hate trobleshooting under Linux. ;-(

You have loaded the 32bit compatibility libraries?

Else, do check this FAQ on that problem. It never hurts to check.

Thanks Jord!
I checked but Synaptic says I even have the latest version of ia32 libs installed.
Now what to do? *Scratches head*

I had a few WUs on my Linux host but they all got the dreaded "signal 11" error message, two of them even after 4 hours of crunching. *sniff* :-(

Do I have to change something on my end or is it a known problem?

This is the host in question, btw: http://www.cosmologyathome.org/results.php?hostid=31443

If you do go with a flat rate, something in the range of 400-450 is about right for the current tasks as I have seen them these last couple months.


Paul has it about right, 400 would be the minumum I think would be acceptable.

I agree on that! :-)
Even with using the x64-app (under Win XP) I needed ~17 hours to crunch these WUs, so 200 creds is really low.

The new layout looks really great!

A \"change page width\" option like in the \"old\" layout would be nice... ;)


I\'ll work on that, but it may prove to be a bit more difficult that the last time.


I would be really happy about the wider view as well, otherwise the page looks like this:



But apart from the \"wasted space\" I like the new colors. Good work! :-)))

As for a prize, perhaps donating a computer from your cluster to the winners account for a period of time (it would only process Cosmology of course).

A very neat idea! QMC did similar for their \"birthday design competition\" winners. ;-)

Brian, if you select \"leave applications in memory while suspended\" then I find that the CPU time resumes normally after a suspend. Dave.

Yep, I am using that option, too. But it doesn\'t help with system freezes and/or when you have to reboot yor box. ;-)
Also it might be a problem to have Cosmo WUs left in memory because the app is using quite a lot of RAM. On multicore systems or on systems with lesser RAM it could be bad for performance. *grin*

Also, I added an option to change the page width to nearly full-screen. Click the link titled "Change Page Width" under the "returning participants" category, located on the index page or the nav bar.


Thanks!


Now just to be picky- Can we make that a preference (store it in a cookie or something), so we don't have to change it every visit?


Now that would be 100% perfect. ;-) And it looks very nice now with my big lappy screen resolution. THX!! :-)

Hmm, I don't find that "page width option", did you remove it again? *scratches head*

Not so urgent, I think, but after deattaching and then attaching to the project in the new url "cosmologyathome", I can't get any new WU's. I get a message about not having enough disk space. In fact, i have 978 MB (not too much, but I'm ruuning Ubuntu in a little partition) Is it really a problem?

Thanks a lot.

Maybe your general preferences are allowing more that your 978 MB?
Than you have to adjust the values. ;-)
(Go to your account under 'general preferences' and have a closer look at the numbers for: "Use at most x GB disk space"; "Leave at least x GB disk space free"; "Use at most x% of total disk space".
Or if you're using a newer BOINC manager version you can also adjust it for that machine only under Extras -> Preferences -> Disk and Memory usage.)
