I have a couple variations of errors showing up in my stderrdae file. All of these machines are running Ubuntu or Xubuntu Gutsy(64b). All except 1 are using v5.10.28 of boinc. Again, on all except 1, I had used the Debian package to install v5.10.8 and then copied the .28 executables over the top of the .8 versions. All have been running well for some time. I suspect the errors have been there since day 1. I'm just now getting around to asking about them.

system1 - the one with straight packaged installed v5.10.8 generates these messages at each startup:

UNRECOGNIZED: suspend_if_no_recent_input
UNRECOGNIZED: max_ncpus_pct

This machine's /var/lib/boinc-client/global_prefs.xml file has the same two lines shown for system1.in it:
<suspend_if_no_recent_input>0</suspend_if_no_recent_input>
<max_ncpus_pct>100</max_ncpus_pct>


system2 - one of the v5.10.28 machines. I get's the .28 versions of the same messages:
Unrecognized XML in GLOBAL_PREFS::parse_override: max_ncpus_pct
Skipping: 100
Skipping: /max_ncpus_pct


This machine's /var/lib/boinc-client/global_prefs.xml file has the same two lines as shown above for system1.

For now I'm assuming the above two errors are because of options not supported till after v5.10.28??



system3 - another of the v5.10.28 machines. This one just happens to be the sole Ubuntu (vs Xubuntu) machine.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated on this one.

The global_prefs file from this machine:

</global_preferences>


The file global_prefs_override.xml is as installed:

<!--
This configuration file global_prefs_override.xml for the BOINC core client
can be used to override global preferences locally. For a complete list of
all preferences which can be overridden see:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/PrefsOverride
-->
<global_preferences>
</global_preferences>

I stopped the daemon, deleted the stderrdae and stdoutdae files and restarted.

Here are those two files:

</global_preferences>


I copied the global_prefs.xml file off of my v5.10.30 windows machine and it resolved all the errors except the "max_ncpus_pct".

Dunno what happened to the one it had.
