Thanks Peter, I will be doing a fresh install of Kubuntu 14.10 in about two to three weeks time and will hopefully find this post a quick way of getting all I need. Last machine I installed on I didn't get around to adding the graphics. Will be retiring that machine to a new home when it has finished crunching current units and the new laptop is up and running.

I have some systems running 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I used the command below to install extra stuff that got CPDN jobs running for me.

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 lib32stdc++6 -y

Message 51544 - Posted: 6 Mar 2015, 20:03:33 UTC - in response to Message 51428.

I do have up to date 14.04 LTS without any of these 32 bit libraries installed and boinc runs. Well another question is whether it runs well, since some of the models do not clean after themselves, or the MOSES ones do not have any zips in their folders despite being almost 200h on (multiple shut downs), or a recent hadam3p EU 7.23 completed but no trickles or credit shown on the web (all data cleaned from HDD automatically). Third question is whether these problems are boinc or CPDN models related. So far no clue for me. But I fail to see much use of my LINUX machines crunching, no matter that CPDN seems desperate for LINUX users to crunch MOSES and triffids (see server status). I do follow all but one (I need to shut down my machines almost every day) recommendations for CPDN models posted by Les Bayliss but what else?!

So do I need to install these or can I run some diagnostics to check whether I need them? I have boinc 7.2.42 from Ubuntu repository. One is running on 32 the other on 64bit OS.

Looking at the results from your Linux computers, I would assume that the E7300 is the 64 bit Ubuntu?

If so, it has a hadcm3s completion with "Success", but errors in stderr that may indicate a missing 32 bit library. If that is the case, I would follow the instructions in this sticky on that PC. Your 32 bit install should be fine.

As for the problem with MOSES, that isn't the fault of your computer necessarily, it's the fault of an application which has no tolerance for interruption.

Until such time as this problem is fixed, anyone interrupting MOSES for any reason where it is removed from memory, will have an end result of missed trickles and missed upload files that will result in a status of error.

Hi, the E7300 is the 32 bit machine, and the T8300 is the 64

the 64 has just errored out on the MOSES II model (missing zips). Will install all the 32 libraries to see whether something will change

Just done an ldd on hadam3p_eu_graphics_7.23_i686-pc-linux-gnu on my new x64 Kubuntu installation on laptop.

went to utopic site to get LibX11-6_1.6.2ubuntu2 and clicked on downloaded deb to install it. - couldn't work out the right command for it in a hurry.
then sudo
apt-get install libX6 :i386
apt-get install LibXt6 :i386
apt-get install LibXmu6 :i386
apt-get install libXi6 :i386
apt-get install libGL1 :i386

There were a few others but I assume they were dependencies of libGL as once that was installed nothing showed as missing.

And true to form I am now out of tasks that have graphics on that machine so I can't test it.

I've installed the libraries, did some project reset and I tried to get a MOSES model.

I've got this for several hours already after 32bit libraries installed (it might be not related to the 32bit update)

I got this

Any ideas?

The server page doesn't tell you about the download server in question which is down due to a hardware fault. See this thread. http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/forum_thread.php?id=8035

On my Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 system, they are in this package:

compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-69.el6.x86_64

At least, the 32-bit C++ library is.

And it is called

/usr/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so

Message 51885 - Posted: 24 Apr 2015, 12:59:09 UTC

Just upgraded my laptop to Kubuntu 15.04. Upgrade failed so I then did it by downloading iso Running sudo apt-get and the required packages says it can't find them. I am going to have to possibly add some extra repositories to my system to get them or find the .debs and install them individually. Hoping the desktop box upgrade will work successfully and so will keep the libs from before.

If anyone finds the way around this before I do, please post!

Ok, got them all via package manager on laptop with fresh install but the 32 bit libs were obviously deleted during the upgrade on desktop so now got to find them on there.

Installing libc6 i386 and libc6-dev i386 through the package manager seems to do the trick. Also had to install webkit on the laptop to get BOINC to run at all.

Graphics will have to wait till I have some models that let me test them.

Not totally sure if the -dev files are needed or not but if I hadn't been stuffed up with a cold, I would have realised that installing the -dev package would have installed the other one anyway.

I am not really sure, why I am doing it again...

I downloaded the Berkeley Installer from the BOINC site: Linux x64 7.2.42 and installed it on under /home/user/BOINC on a Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.1 64bits system. All of it on a USB-Stick 3.0 32GB.

Yes i did download the lib32 files.
I started with run_manager as usual nothing happens. I start run_client - it works but I am not able to attach to a project, because of my very rudimentary computer knowledge...

I do ldd boincmgr and I do get:
roland@roland-desktop ~/BOINC $ ldd boincmgr
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xf779f000)
libwx_gtk2u_html-2.8.so.0 => not found
libwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8.so.0 => not found
libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0 => not found
libwx_baseu_net-2.8.so.0 => not found
libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0 => not found
All the rest seems installed.

So my question: where do I find these 5 libwx files? I tried with Synaptic Package Manager: No success!

Any ideas?

I would really like to help with these "hadam3prm3pm2t_eu (hadam3p global model with hadrm3p regional model with MOSES II land scheme and TRIFFID available) (currently no graphics) (Linux only)" WUs but I am not able to get BOINC running... I do have two idle computers with another OS installed, so I would be able to run with LINUX on a stick.

PS I do use the Berkeley installer as I would like to run NVIDIA GPU as well, but this never worked before, although I did not have these missing lib s either...

Whenever I get that message, I do a search for libwx in package manager and then install anything that has that and has gtk or graphical toolkit in it. This would be the 64bit version for boincmanager.

Hello klepel

If you can't get BOINC to work, then this is the wrong forum. You need the BOINC/dev forum.
This thread is about 32 bit libs needed by the climate programs. (And, as Geophi says, you'll need the 64 bit versions of the libs for the 64 bit BOINC.)

Doing a web search for: libwx seems to indicate that they might be Widget files.

This one may help:
Where do I get libwx-gtk-2.6.so.0 ?

although it's for 2.6, and you want 2.8

Sorry, when I misused this thread, but I could not find a better one on climteprediction.net and I am not a user of the boinc forums, however I do climateprediction.net since 2004. So I thought I will find some linux-geek (mint) in this forum who might easily help...

And their should be a certain interest from project people to bring down:
"hadam3prm3pm2t_eu (Linux only) Tasks ready to send 25,459 [As of 27 Jul 2015 4:49:00 UTC]" as well.

Back to my problem: I searched around for an other two hours without any success, and I think I used the Syanptic Package Manager and installed nearly all libwx packages I thought might be usefull, whithout any success. So if anybody has a solution o might be willing to help just PM me!

Hi, on my recent installs on ubuntu, I installing webkit got me the missing file(s) needed for BOINC Manager to run. On ubuntu if using KDE I think it is installed automagically but not with xfce which I am using now due to it's lower memory overhead.

Interestingly, my last install with kde produced a missing library error on some tasks, right at the end of computation even though the library was present. With XFCE the tasks complete normally.
