Hi there. I have recently taken up seti after a long absence. While trying to accumulate extra work units for the outages I cleared my local preferences. After doing that my boinc manager downloaded S@H version 5.28. I had version 6.03 working. The next work units were assigned to version 5.28 instead of the newest version. Is there a way to force new work units to use 6.03 ? Or is there a way to sort the manager out so it remembers it should use 6.03 ?

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04LTS x86-64
Boinc 6.10.56

Many thanks
John

After finding this page http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/apps.php I have answered my own question. The latest version for Linux x86_64 is 5.28. The manager was using a 32bit version before. 8 Oct 2007 seems like a long time ago. But if it works leave it alone.

Thanks

John

If you have knowledge on where the data folder is you do have the option to use the optimized apps as well.

Your computer does support SSE3 so I chose that one.

Hi there Arkayn. Thanks for the optimised application. I do know where to put this, it is a case of sudo mv to get the files into the folder.

Thanks again

John
