Hi Fellow Users:
I just wanted to write to say that I am also getting errors but on a different Version---BOINC version 7.0.24
It is affecting all Projects that I signed up for, not only in number fields.
If I apply for a new project it does the same output file error.
The error is saying missing output file before erroring out.
It runs for about a second before showing error.
I went through 10 errors before I noticed it and stopped the computer from running any more.
I then tried adding another project and it happened the same. Same error message.
This is only happening for the only computer that I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 yesterday.
The upgraded computer, I took offline runnig Boinc until I hear that a fix is there to add or that it is in the update manager to be fix with.
I have not looked into it lately, but to me it is similar to a problem I had when I first started in 2010 when a lib I did not install correctly was causing the output file to be absent after trying to run.
I do not remember what lib file it was but I do remember that I found that I needed it in a thread in Einstein@Home. I will be looking to find that thread again and looking at all the list of needed files and in making sure I still have them all.
If I do not have all the needed files then reloading them back into the system. Then try running it again. If I have success I will post the list of missing files for other to look into and see if it helps them.
I agree that the upgrade may have removed needed and necessary files on the Boinc Project and that the main Boinc page should recomend that if they upgrade a users system by using the desktop ubuntu 12.04 amd64.iso that there will be reported problems until fixed.
Thanks.....post if you find an answer to this before I do or hear of a fix.
