Message 924241 - Posted: 7 Aug 2009, 1:47:25 UTC

All of my Astropulse V505 tasks (5.06) crash with a SIGSEGV (11) signal after a suspend-resume. I realize there's a workaround (leave tasks in memory), but that does not work over a reboot/shutdown.

Currently, I have all Astropulse V5 apps disabled on my systems.
In the meantime, when will this Astropulse V5 bug be fixed?

Thanks.


Example: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=1327470040
Running: Ubuntu 9.04/x86_64, BOINC 6.2.18.

How'd you manage to get one... I have yet to see any AP units.

Dunno. The server just gave them to me. Doesn't help that I lost ~1.5K+ credits and crunching time on them crashing :(.

Putting your system into suspend state requires that your processors are idle. If your processors were working on something, such as any science project from BOINC, it interrupts the processing to put itself into low power state. BOINC is inherently not compatible with this by its very definition, therefore there is no "bug" to be fixed. If you would like to put your computer into suspend mode, you need to suspend all processing from within BOINC Manager first before doing so.

I don't mean 'suspend computer' when I'm talking about 'suspend', I mean using the 'suspend task button' in the BOINC Manager causes my AP tasks to SIGSEGV after a suspend/resume task.

Sorry about the confusion.

Oh, OK. Are you using stock apps or optimized apps?

Stock. Standard unmodified BOINC install from the Ubuntu repos.

also it mysteriously suspends in the middle of the night to run CPU benchmarks
in doing so crashes the Astropulse

all my other boinc apps are working perfectly

Isnt this a problem with Ubuntu Jaunty's 64bit libs? I remember abandoning it in favour of Fedora because of a string of segfaults in Seti and Einstein. I googled around and found a number of other complaints, and someone raised a bug ticket in the Ubuntu forums.

The same problem exits in Fedora 11 with boincmgr 6.6.37 and astropulse. I have had it sigsegv on two different aps after working for over 150 hours on the last one and not quite that long on the first one. I have disabled astropulse until I find an answer.

I have 100% failures running this DC project on Linux 2.4.21-60. ELsmp. I have ~100% success running other DC projects.

this has been happening to a few people. I'd do as the FAQ suggest and see if that fixes the problem. I'd also upgrade your boinc client to 6.4.5. 6.6.36 can cause trouble for some folks
