I have trouble with one of the items in 'boinc_cmd.
The issue is 'aborting' a work unit.
the cmd is 'boinc_command --result url result_name op'
The operation (op) is 'abort', the url; The problem is with 'result_name' which I believe is the string of characters after WU name. But it does not seem to work although the command is accepted.
Reason for the 'abort' is that the WU is an Astro Pulse unit which my slow Dell can't handle in the given time before reporting. I have now set my preferences to 'No AP'
Can someone help with this issue?
