We are currently looking into porting the app to GPUs and ARMs (not just for smart phones, but also for the parallela), which should help to increase our TFLOPS.


good news eric!

if you need testers..

Just one more thing to add.

I am making the same adjustment to the bounded app. But this time, I will slowly reduce the estimated flops by factors of 2, over a period of several weeks. This should reduce the large spike of WUs in the client queue.


you better go for 10% a day!

whatever you are doing there, small steps not big jumps..

12) Message boards : News : Problem with client version 7.0.24 on ubuntu. (Message 652)
Posted 16 May 2012 by frankhagen
Post:
7.0.26 is a Berkeley build, in other words a build from the BOINC developers. They build BOINC on the latest Ubuntu LTS release which was, until recently, Ubuntu 10.x. Now the LTS is Ubuntu 12.04 but there is no guarantee the BOINC developers have switched to 12.04, they may still be using 10.x. If you're running 12.04 and the BOINC devs are building on 10.x then there is a good chance BOINC 7.0.26 from Berkeley (the BOINC site) won't work for you.


ARRGH!

here we go again.

we don't know which silly fraggle decided that 7.0.24 was the version that made it into the 12.04 bundle. it definitely was everything but recommended by that time.

DA, and the crazy CCC - boinc would simply be nothing without the few guys out here which are figuring out where the heck they fucked up this time again.

Word on the street is that this is happening on multiple projects, not just NumberFields. According to this link, version 7.0.26 may resolve the issue.


upgrading to 7.0.27 did work for me.

Posted 10 May 2012 by frankhagen
Post:
I'm in the process of updating to Ubuntu 12.04 so I don't know if this fix actually works.

Edit added:

It seems like there's always trouble with the Linux builds. The builds from the BOINC site work *only* on the version of Ubuntu the BOINC devs use. They use only the current LTS version. The repositories are usually several months behind the recommended BOINC version. Well I've had enough of that nonsense so I'm going to learn how to build BOINC myself, write up the procedure and make it available to all.


YES - complete nonsense.

12.04 IS the current LTS.

so once again they have pushed out untested crap.

but 7.0.27 seems to work..

Post:
As of a few minutes ago, the 50% bonus credits have finally been turned off. There are 3 of the troublesome WUs remaining, and I will manually grant the bonus credits to those users upon completion (as promised).

Thanks for all your contributions and for sticking with us through this tough batch of WUs.


well, usually the passenger pulling the handbrake that hard will end up sitting on the road. ;)

at least i switched back to bounded again. no extra fun, no extra risk..

this defintely looks like they fouled up something inside the reposetory. some non-boinc apps are affected also.


Did you ever figure out what the problem was with this, or find a work-around?

I ask because another user is getting the exact same error message.


2 things: several problems with libc6 all over the place and 2nd, boinc 7.0.25 is one of the apps.

no cure available right now, but it's probably just a matter of time.

at least it seems there is nothing you can do about it.

Did you also upgrade the boinc client? If so, maybe it's the newer client that's the problem???


the newer client came with the upgrade. but the client does work, it's just some projects which are showing the same error.

Post:
It looks like there is a problem with your libc.so.6

The apps for NumberFields are static (ldd confirms this) so they don't rely on any libc library (dynamically at least). Might the client depend on libc.so.6?



the client itself works - it's just the numberfields app which crash right away.
distrtgen and wuprop still work.

but maybe other projects will be affected also.

i'll try to check tomorrow. maybe the upgrade process turned out very bright and got rid of some of the libs. :(

but i'm a windows-guy and only a linux user.. :|
