I am far from being both a noob or a guru, so it is not all that unusual when I cannot get something to work on my own and have to look for help.

It is more unusual that I actually have to ASK for it, though. However, this is one of those times. I'm simply lost on this one and I am finally throwing my hands up in the air and asking for pointers and/or directions.

I have just built out a new box that is running an AMD x6 with plenty of RAM and it is running, you guessed it, Ubuntu 12.04 LTR x64.

A little reading and a kind hand from Dan has pointed out that the package that is in the Ubuntu repos right now is, shall we say, flawed.

So...... as much as I hate to be part of the testing world these days, I have added a PPA that he pointed out and installed the x.27 release (which I am disappointed to see is x86 and not x64). However, this doesn't seem to have provided me any love either.

Regardless of what version I am running and whether it is a true x64 or not, I cannot get BIONC to download anything from any project. I have checked all the settings I know to check and I find nothing out of the ordinary, but it still refuses to communicate with any project server.

I would normally think that there might be something in the router/firewall device blocking it, but BOINC on my old, worn out laptop works just fine which tells me the firewall settings are not where I should look.

Since I know where NOT to waste my time, I don't seem to know where to spend it to get this accomplished. So now I come to the forums and beg for mercy. Somebody have some pointers/suggestions/tips/prayers/sacrifices to offer? PLEASE??

Could we start by having you post the first 30 lines or so of your BOINC Managers event log.

Yes, I think this is a good starting point Skil.

(Wizard, the easiest way to find those first 30 lines is launch boinc, open the manager, (in advanced view), Advanced menu-event log.)

His Boinc (on his 12.04) has not even connected to the project computers.

This tells me he is having some other issue besides the 7.0.24/Ubuntu bug that has been well documented here. (He has tried a couple installs of boinc I believe, yet his 12.04 box just has not even connected to the project)


Wizard, stick with that 7.0.27 please, because once we figure out your issue, you will not have luck crunching Seti with 7.0.24 (though it would connect to the project servers which is why I'm positive you are having another issue...)



I cannot get BIONC to download anything from any project

Yep, somethings not right...

I don't think we will need the first 30 lines. Looking into it I see a reoccurring pattern already. Why I did not look there previously is a mystery to me and makes me feel more like that noob I referred to earlier...

You are correct. I have tried more than one version and the version does not seem to matter.

Wizard, stick with that 7.0.27 please, because once we figure out your issue, you will not have luck crunching Seti with 7.0.24 (though it would connect to the project servers which is why I'm positive you are having another issue...)

I have seen enough on here to know that I do not want to stay with the previous versions, but I have found some bugs with the .27 version as well... but we can talk about those later.

Yep, somethings not right...

Glad we agree on this minor point {grin}

Ok, I remember this error from past installs now that I have searched it on the web a little.

Found that this has to do with the wrong version of http being used and even found the code and the file to add it to (cc_config.xml).

Now for my next question:

There seem to be two versions of this file on this box in two different places

/etc/boinc-client/cc_config.xml /var/lib/boinc-client/cc_config.xml


So.... which one needs to be modified?

Looks like BOTH of them were modified on my notebook (or they came that way which isn't likely).

This is weird for sure, I don't have any useful input for you...



I thinks it's especially weird that your boinc is "sending scheduler request" but not connecting to any project servers... wth.


To answer your question of which file to edit. It doesn't matter:
/var/lib/boinc-client/cc_config.xml <--- These files here are just hard-links to /etc/boinc-client/cc_config.xml. So if you edit the file at either location, you are in essence editing the same file. (which is why they both appeared edited, they are both the same file. :-)
(hard-links allow one file to exist at two or more locations, without the file actually existing in duplicate like with NTFS)


So hopefully once you make your edit, you'll be all set. Good luck.

You can check what that error is on BOINC FAQ(google it) but You'd be surprised what the BOINC guru's can gleen from just those first 30 lines. So please let us have a look.

I never actually went to the directory where the files live or even did a 'file'
on either of them. Guess if I would have I would have figured that one out, huh?

Well, I have made the changes but still no love. For what it's worth, there were already lines in the file similar to what is suggested to add:

<cc_config> <log_flags> <task>1</task> <file_xfer>1<file_xfer> <sched_ops>1<sched_ops> <log_flags> <cc_config>


So, I am wondering if I need to add the lines inside the <cc_config> tabs that already exist instead of adding a whole new set of them or if there is another solution that I am not seeing....

I'm not at the box at the moment and it will be a while before I get to where I can review it and get those lines from it. I will try to get them posted here ASAP if no clear answer to my last post comes up and resolves this.

Far be it from me to deny anybody a log file they want to review for any reason, so now that I am back at the box, here it is:

Resuming is a new word for me in this log.... did I actually get work units when I wasn't looking? If so, why are there still 417 errors??

Message 1253192 - Posted: 29 Jun 2012, 14:35:46 UTC - in response to Message 1253190.

no you didn't get any work but you probably have one of the boxed ticked that stop computation (whether you have any or not) if CPU used goes over a certain percent.

Also that doesn't appear to be the first 30 lines but some 30 random lines.

The first 30 lines will show your projects your CPU and a multitude of other info about your BOINC manager and processes.

I suggest going under the advanced tab and setting the "suspend work if CPU usage greater than" to 0 this will prevent it from suspending.

I also wonder if you are running a firewall that is preventing the BOINC processes from accessing the internet?

So, I am wondering if I need to add the lines inside the <cc_config> tabs that already exist instead of adding a whole new set of them or if there is another solution that I am not seeing....


I do believe you want the whole file to start and end with "cc-config". But be warned I'm not positive about that so hopefully someone with cc_config experience can chime in on that one.

However, I'm pretty convinced you've got something else going on here that doesn't involve the cc_config file. Perhaps like Skil mentioned you have some sort of firewall restrictions etc.

I've experimented with Boinc 7.0.24, 7.0.25, 7.0.26, 7.0.27, AND 7.0.28, all on Ubuntu boxes, and have never had an issue with Boinc connecting to the net/project servers, right "out-of-the-box".

So I'm stumped here man. :-(



Oh, one more thing. Your edit to your cc_config file, does not seem to include the line that "may" fix your http error...

From BoincFAQ:
Ah, the infamous error 417. This is a HTTP error.
This can possibly be fixed by telling BOINC to use HTTP 1.0 communications only. To do so, make a cc_config.xml file in your BOINC Data directory.
Put these lines into it:
<cc_config> <options> <http_1_0>1</http_1_0> </options> </cc_config>


Note: I also see you didn't close out your last lines of cc_config.xml with a "/"

You should just erase your entire cc_config, and paste these lines ^...

Assuming this is your ENTIRE cc-config file:

<cc_config> <log_flags> <task>1</task> <file_xfer>1<file_xfer> <sched_ops>1<sched_ops> <log_flags> <cc_config>

You would need to FIX it like this:
<cc_config> <log_flags> <task>1</task> <file_xfer>1</file_xfer> <sched_ops>1</sched_ops> </log_flags> </cc_config>


But I'd also add the http parameter to test:
<cc_config> <log_flags> <task>1</task> <options> <http_1_0>1</http_1_0> </options> <file_xfer>1</file_xfer> <sched_ops>1</sched_ops> </log_flags> </cc_config>

That's the logical result when the client never gets through to the server ;-)

And as for your cc_config.xml suggestion, I'm not sure that you can nest the <log_flags> and <options> sections. So, I'd suggest:
<cc_config> <log_flags> <task>1</task> <file_xfer>1</file_xfer> <sched_ops>1</sched_ops> </log_flags> <options> <http_1_0>1</http_1_0> </options> </cc_config>

Gruß,

Dan,

You and I were on the same thought process.... I didn't think nesting them would be a good idea either, so I had already done it the way you just now typed. This look exactly like the file I now have and I have achieved download!!

Now if I can only see if it is actually processing anything, I will be one VERY happy person....

Thanks for the input, guys. Couldn't have done it without you both pushing me on!

Enjoy.

Well, it seems you are having the same problem as I am. I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 and Bionc 7.0.28 and now it doesn't work. I noticed that your Bionc log shows 'no GPU' same as mine. When I view the Ubuntu settings it seems to think my PC is a Laptop and there is no Graphics card or driver. I can not figure out how to fix that, however when I run Nvidia-settings, it shows my graphics card, drivers and proper monitor. I suspect that this is the problem, somewhere Ubuntu 12.04 is not in touch with reality. When I ran the new version of Ubuntu in demo mode from the CD it ran perfectly well, but after the install it thinks my PC is a Laptop. I noted others complaining about this in Ubuntu forums, but nobody is offering or has a fix.
