I posted earlier this week about failure to download
user_logo. This has been really a annoying problem.
This has been happening for more than a week now.
Got a couple of replies..."it will work it's way out of queue"
and "could be server is busy".I don't know though...
my machines contacts the sever petty often to upload finished
results and to download new work...no problem there.
But...it's this darn user_logo_thing that
has gotten under my skin...so I am asking
for some help in clearing this up. I located
the line in the client_state.xml file for
user_logo, can I simply edit out the info
there or will I screw my project up?
And what exactly is the user_logo?
is it the graphic logo that shows in the windows
client when you display the graphics?
I realy need help on this one.
I run BOINC/SETI on a Linux platform at
home using RH9...at work I run on Windows98SE.
I run my Linux day and night...am not able to do
so at work...just wondering, could I somehow
copy my workunits from 98SE and copy them
into my Linux version of BOINC...have got 30 wu's at work...
thats a lot wu's and credits? and just junk
running the project, having considered running
pirates at work...and seti at home....
have snipped part of the client_state.xml for
the viewing.....any suggestions and help would
be more than greatly appreciated...thanks in
advance..xi3...apologies fo such a long post.

In my case, I edited the incorrect line from
ttp://mywebsite/mypicture.jpg
to
http://mywebsite/mypicture.jpg
in my client_state file, and had not problem.

I noticed that he background images are also mentioned in the sched_request and sched_reply xml files. Myself, I'm too chicken to *delete* out lines in there.
I'd suggest making a backup copy of the xml file if you go editing things.


>>is it the graphic logo that shows in the windows
client when you display the graphics?

Yep, in the gui, there's a user logo behind the other graphics and it moves with the graphics as the graph spins about. There's a logo that goes to the bottom right.
The client seems to only like website pictures, so using something the file:// and httpS:// prefixes wont work.
I find it funny that linux CLI clients bother downloading the logos. I guess that's the way it's compiled.
