... although it would be nice to get the Darwin Astropulse app back.

??? Why?
If you mean 'astropulse_6.02_i686-apple-darwin' you don't need it, you now have the optimized app: 'ap_6.02r561_OSX64'

Delete the last part of your app_info.xml
- it is nonsense - there is no Application under the name 'astropulse_v6.02' in existence:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/apps.php

('astropulse_v6' is a string representing the name of the Application and the SETI servers expect an exact name they know about.
'6' is not version num, it is just symbol/char part of the string - if they wanted they may call it 'astropulse_six'.
Asking the SETI servers to send you <name>astropulse_v6.02</name> will have the same "success" as asking for <name>abracadabra_v6</name> ;)

Oh, but there is an astropulse_6.02_i686-apple-darwin, I use to have it. Unlike the ap_6.02r561_OSX64 app, the Seti version uses the GPU. The only reason I added the .02 was to give it a different name than the other version, just in case it ever appeared in the Simple View at the same time. I'm not sure it really matters what the short name is, I think it's the long name that matters. I think Seti knew what I was asking for, note the name they use in the reply,
03-Nov-2012 09:38:22 [SETI@home] File referenced in app_info.xml does not exist: astropulse_6.02_i686-apple-darwin
03-Nov-2012 09:38:22 [SETI@home] State file error: missing application file astropulse_6.02_i686-apple-darwin
They didn't mention 'astropulse_v6.02', did they? Would you be happy if I removed the .02 :)

I'd like to get it back, so I can then ask why my AMD 4670 in my stock XP system runs AP much faster than the AMD 6850 in my Mac. In fact, I think I ran a stock AP while booted to XP on my Mac, and the 6850 was just as slow in XP. I'll have to check that...

I just checked it. The only GPU AP was done on my Mac when in XP, not OSX. Dang. I remember now, it was fast. Much faster than the 7 hours it's taking the 4670 http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6797524&offset=0&show_names=0&state=0&appid=12 The CPU APs in OSX are taking 9 hours. I had 3 APs scheduled for OSX when the Major Malfunction occurred, and they where estimated at 30 hours a piece. I guess they were for the CPUs...oh well. So, I really don't need the stock Seti Astropulse. For now.

I guess I need to boot to XP, and tell Seti to only send GPU APs to computer 6797524...
Can that be done?

Message 1302159 - Posted: 4 Nov 2012, 17:03:08 UTC - in response to Message 1301857.

Here's what I've got now in OSX;
<app_info>
<app>
<name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>seti_enhanced-v8-xeon</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_enhanced</app_name>
<version_num>603</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>seti_enhanced-v8-xeon</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

<app>
<name>astropulse_v6</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>ap_6.02r561_OSX64</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>astropulse_v6</app_name>
<version_num>602</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>ap_6.02r561_OSX64</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
</app_info>

At the same time, I decided to see what changing the Short Name would do. I made it Seti@Home_Enhanced & Astropulse_v6. The server immediately freaked out and said

About the same thing as last time only nothing was vaporized and I know exactly what caused it. So, even the case setting makes a difference. You learn something everyday.

I went to XP and made a cc_config file;
<cc_config>
<log_flags>
</log_flags>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
<ncpus>2</ncpus>
</options>
</cc_config>
This seemed to do the trick, I got;

I gave up after a few hours, never did get any GPU work for XP.

I went back to OSX and immediately received 3 CPU APs.

Those will take about 9 hours. IF I could get a GPU AP for the AMD 6850, it would take about an hour using the stock Seti Astropulse in XP. When those 3 finish I'm going to try XP again.
