One of my machines (host # 710) had the prob of unsent wu's a while back, and its happening again.

These have been pending for around 3 weeks now.

Any chance of getting them looked at ?


Thanks

Firstly thanks Scott for all the pendings I had (over 1200 WU's), and I'm now wondering if I can put my turion laptop back on the job?

I dont want have it working away if the same "flying solo" issue happens again....but I do want that machine on there if possible.

Thanks in advance

I (finally - linux dork factor) managed to get a virtual machine up and ready on my AMD64 X2 laptop (1200 odd wu's done flying solo) only to find when I went to install kubuntu 64 bit on it that, even though the host OS is kubuntu64bit, my "cpuisnt capable of long mode".."install 32 bit version".


I might be mistaking, but on AMD64 64-bit virtual machines require a 64-bit host OS. Why not install the 32-bit then? The 64-bit CAMB client is not much faster than the 32-bit.


The host laptop is running 64 bit kubuntu.

Ohiomike, pls explain (linux dork factor causing probs again) template.

Do you mean I might have installed the 32 bit version of vbox instead of 64 bit?
I'll check that.

So I guess I have to hope that Scott will do something about the work units.

I cant work out why the machine can't be matched with another....it took 13 mins / WU (my core2duos were all about 6 mins), and Ive seen members talking about longer times than that.

even though most of them were at 6 cr/WU, even at 4.5 I'm "losing" about 5.5K in credits.

C'mon Scott, you can do it !!

Scott, any info on solo hosts problem would be cool.... with over 1000 WU's sitting pending for my laptop at 13 plus minutes per WU, I dont like to have wasted all that time if possible,

Thanks

Scott, I went to count the WU's still in pending, and this time gave up at 1100.

@ Mr Pernod,, are you saying that if I set up a virtual machine I can "re-crunch" them all again?

At 60 cr/hr combined for the first run through, to then do them again ....Hmmmmmmmm? ? ?

Don't think so.

I was having good fun trying to stay in the top 10 in the worl, forsaking all other projects for the effort, but this is pretty disappointing.

Please Scott, can you see to this?

Scott, my AMD Turion X64 has stacks and stacks of WU's which have simply gone into pending, apparently not being sent to another host, and with the new work units I do not want to be left stranded with all that work being for nothing.

I have posted similar in "flying solo" thread.

Thanks

PS: I started counting how many were in pending, and gave up when I got over 600 !!

Can you please address this.

My AMD turion X64 laptop is in the same boat, in that every WU is going in to pending and not being sent out to another cruncher.

Computer No is 710.

Any help in getting the credit for these WU's would be appreciated, as I wondered why I was slipping backwards in world rankings, and I started to cry ....

Thanks
