You already have one AstroPulse task (Sent 19 May 2014, your post 20 May 2014)

To increase your chances of getting AstroPulse tasks - change settings to:

SETI@home Enhanced: no
SETI@home v7: no
AstroPulse v6: yes
If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications? yes

(the above will not stop you getting 'SETI@home v7')

If you have a capable GPU it will be much faster for AstroPulse, there are Linux apps for AstroPulse OpenCL on ATI and NVIDIA GPUs

BOINC do not detect a capable GPU ("Coprocessors ---") which may mean: old GPU, drivers do not support CUDA or OpenCL, BOINC can't find OpenCL drivers on too new Linux, ...
