I think I have my preferences set correctly. I selected all the different types of work, but nothing is ever downloaded to work on. I try manually updating but communications are always deferred for 1 hour.

Hello Loushon

There's only 2 apps that currently have work for Linux. You can check this at any time on the Server Status page, 5th from the bottom in the blue menu to the left.

And if you're running 64 bit Linux, then you need some 32 bit libraries, as per the original post in the thread about this at the top of the Linux section of this board. (Currently the top thread.)

The "one hour project back off" is designed to slow down rogue computers from grabbing and crashing large quantities of data sets.
ANY contact with the server will reset this timer.

Finally, the exact message that you're getting in the Event Log should tell you why your computer's not getting work. Perhaps it already has enough from your other projects.

It is 64 bit Linux, and I'm set to accept all projects, but I don't think I have too much work, because currently there is only Seti running anything. I am not sure what you mean by 32 bit libraries, though.

Perhaps it is my Linux set up since I just set up boinc on my windows pc & it downloaded work right away.

I am not sure what you mean by 32 bit libraries, though.

The climate models are provided by the UK Met Office, and they're all 32 bit.
If you don't have the needed 32 bit stuff, then a 64 bit computer will crash all data sets in about 6 seconds.

The fix is described in the afore mentioned post.

******************

Is there a line in your Event Log that says something like:
"Not requesting work. Don't need." ?
If so, then BOINC thinks that your computer has enough to do already.

Just checked, the computer in question hasn't received any work yet. However it is shown as last contact with the project being today.

Go the the afore mentioned post and follow the instructions to install the 32 bit libraries. The fact that you don't know what is meant by them on a 64 bit installations pretty much guarantees you don't have them. - I can remember when my own knowledge of linux meant it took me a long time and a lot of reading to find all the answers. On this occasion others have done the work for us!

Check the notices tab and also the event log which is under the advanced tab as I suspect there will be a clue there as to what the problem is, probably a message saying tasks of some sort not available for your computer. Not 100% sure but I think installing the missing libraries will fix this. If not I can probably find my post about what I think is the problem given some time.

There is work in Beta but we have no idea when it will be operational and ready for release.

If you have CPDN work for a week, consider yourself fortunate ...

I finished a 32 days task on my Linux box,. Now I have 3 Anz jobs on my Windows PC. One is running together with ATLAS@home and vLHC tasks and two were suspended by me in order not to stop the tasks requiring VirtualBox. So I have plenty of CPDN work on the Windows PC.

Though if they are all HADCM3S tasks it may be worth checking if any of the workunits these tasks come from are marked, "No resubmission" One of mine that finished yesterday failed at the end with missing zips was I realised so indicated and on checking so were a number of others that had also missed an earlier cull.

Not sure if this means they were marked after my my earlier checking or not. This will soon leave me with just the longer tasks to crunch on my two Linux boxes.

Yes, they are looking good thus far for me, with the first 4 running 8 to 11 hours with no problems.

I am working with climateprediction.net and SETI@home on a 13" Early 2015 MacBook Air running MacOS Sierra Version 10.12.1. For a while both programs were running tasks. For the past several weeks only SETI is running tasks. I'm not aware of having changed any settings. Why is climateprediction.net running tasks?

Any suggestions for changes in settings I might make?

Hi Michael


That's because there isn't any work at present. And it may be a while before there's more.
Or in five minutes time. :)

You can keep an eye on this in the Server Status page. There's a button for this on the projects front page, and in the blue menu to the left, 5 from the bottom.
