Hi All

On Dec 15 I decided to add SETI@home to the projects I'm running. Since then I've only completed 2 WUs, 1 is reported as being abandoned ( Astropulse v505 v5.06 ) 1 that started yesterday and detached today is shown with a status of "in progress". Reading through the log SETI@home has reset and detached 8 times so far. I'm running Linux with a nVidia 8600GT video card, driver version 260.19.29. All other projects are running fine. Here are a sample of the log entries:

This is a log entry for the nVidia card, the driver version is shown as unknown for some reason, don't know if this has anything to do with it.

25-Dec-2010 09:02:29 [---] NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 8600 GT (driver version unknown, CUDA version 3020, compute capability 1.1, 511MB, 76 GFLOPS peak)

TIA

Are you using an account manager, such BOINCstats BAM! or GridRepublic? If so, you'll have to attach through them.

Thanks for the reply. I use Boincstats BAM and I use it for doing everything.

Obviously, you didn't use it to attach to SETI. ;-)

And you skipped the BAM! messages in the log you posted.

Does it work now for you?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

| Obviously, you didn't use it to attach to SETI. ;-)

Yes I did, I couldn,t even tell you how to do it any other way without looking it up.

| And you skipped the BAM! messages in the log you posted.

Yes, my mistake. I don't know how many you need but here's a full days worth up to the last detach.

I think he was trying to to you that you need to attach to the project through your account manager at BAM! if you try to attach through your PC boinc manager it will detach as it has been doing

Thanks for the reply.

interesting! Is SETI different as I've always done it through the manager on my PC ? I'll try it.

if you have an account manager then you have to attach to projects through it.
