21) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : "The URL you supplied is not that of a BOINC-based project" (Message 1493491)

That message can happen if you blocked BOINC from accessing the internet, or by using BOINC 7.2.39, which was broken.

3/22/2014 10:32:16 AM | | Data directory: D:\

That might be a problem. You're now dumping all of the BOINC files into the root directory of drive D: or partition D:, something that Windows doesn't like to write to.

Always write to a directory!
So, perhaps best for you to uninstall BOINC now, then clean up the D: directory, make a BOINC directory in it and move all BOINC related files and directories into the BOINC directory, then reinstall BOINC and at the third screen of the installer choose Advanced. Next change the path to the Data directory to D:\BOINC\ and allow to continue to installation.

Then see further if that fixes the problem.

Default directories in the BOINC directory: notices, projects, skin, slots, symbols
Files for the directory: account*.xml, acct_mgr*.xml, all_projects_list.xml, cc_config.xml, client_state.xml, client_state_prev.xml, coproc_info.xml, daily_xfer_history.xml, get_current_version.xml, get_projct_config.xml, global_prefs.xml, global_prefs_override.xml, gui_rpc_auth.cfg, job_log*.xml, lookup*.xml, master*.xml, remote_hosts.cfg, sched*.xml, statistics*.xml, std*.xml and time_stats_log

And when you installed your videocard, did you let Windows install the drivers, or did you download and install them from Nvidia? You need the latter drivers, not the ones installed by Windows, as these drivers lack the necessary components.

Juan, please stop reading my posts. You don't seem to be able to follow my humor anyway, so why don't you put me on ignore. That way you don't have to worry about anything I write. I'll put you on ignore as well, so I don't have to read any of your 'answers' anymore either.
25) Message boards : Number crunching : How/will you crunch during the summer? (Message 1493440)

I haven't even been running a lot the past few months, during our winter time. According to my BOINC statistics, BOINC was on for 31% of the time, and for 55% of that time it was allowed to do work. Einstein and Seti only, both on my GPU. At Einstein I have a RAC of 3773, here I have a RAC of 661. Goes to show that even with minimalistic effort, you can still do good in the charts.

As for the monetary side of things, last year I managed to get 60 euros back on my year bill. This year I've already managed to lower my monthly prepay bill by 30 euros a month, and I expect to lower it by another 20 before June, thus going from 188 euros a month to 138 euros. Added into that is the absence of winter though, as we haven't spent much on gas this winter. And gas is the most expensive commodity, at 65 cents per cubic meter, as opposed to the electricity cost of 7.5 cents per KWh during the day and 6 cents per KWh during the night. Having a flat that can easily swallow 98 cubic meters of gas in a week during a cold winter, you see it pays to not have winter. :)

I doubt you went from e.g. Windows to Linux, but that you changed from Windows Vista to 7. In the latter case it doesn't matter, but in the former it does.

30) Message boards : Number crunching : Config Question (Message 1491327)
Posted 32 days ago by Profile Ageless
When did you add the setting? If only a short time ago, do know that it won't magically show 365 days of statistics in the Statistics tab, it will only now go do that (as where do you think it should've gotten the information from about past contacts? It hasn't saved that). So you'll have to wait the 30+ days that it normally took, and in that time you need regular contacts with the scheduler.

You did allow BOINC to read the cc_config.xml file after adding it in the data directory, yes? Changing or adding the value to cc_config.xml may require a BOINC restart.

Posted 33 days ago by Profile Ageless
Can happen that a PC is quicker to recover to the desktop, than all the network connections are to re-establish themselves - especially if you use a wireless network connection (or a modem). If you have a hard-wired router, and leave that powered up, it's usually quicker.

All my PCs and NAS are hardwired to the router. I prefer to have a constant available 1 gigabit LAN, than a sometimes available 135 Mbit LAN (300 Mbit is impossible, even if you're right next to the router).

The router and NAS are always on.

(can't resolve hostname) is usually a DNS failure closer to home.

My system (& thus BOINC) had just revived from hibernation, before BOINC tried that upload. So whatever DNS trouble had managed to manifest itself, must then have happened during the time the system was in hibernation.

Someone at the project will probably have a clue, but as for the rest of us, we can only guess, which is what everyone's doing. Since it's luckily something far beyond my control, I'm going to shut down in a bit and going to bed. Tomorrow evening when my computer comes on again, it can try further. :-)
35) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Boinc installer - Linux & 64bit !?!? (Message 1490369)
Posted 34 days ago by Profile Ageless
Do I need to do this to get 64bit compatibility?!?

The libraries aren't for 64bit compatibility, they're to allow 32bit applications to run on your 64bit Linux. You only need them if you have only errors when running 32bit applications on your 64bit Linux distro. It also says that on
64 Bit Condsiderations:

If you are running 64 bit Linux, you might have a problem with projects that issue 32 bit applications rather than 64 bit applications. To allow 32 bit applications to run on 64 bit Linux you must install 32 bit versions of certain shared libraries. The names of the packages containing the 32 bit libraries is different for each distro.

Do you need them for running Seti? No.
Seti sends 64bit applications to 64bit Linux hosts: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/apps.php
36) Message boards : Number crunching : GPU Detection Failed, Error Code 1073740940 (Message 1490361)
Posted 34 days ago by Profile Ageless
Sorry for the lengthy delay in responding..

I ordered a different video card and it failed too, with the same error code. I pulled the video card and started the machine with the onboard INTEL video and it popped right up as a GPU in BOINC.. I'm not sure what to think about this issue now..

So, now that the others have had their say in this thread, back to the OP. If a different videocard in the same PCIe slot doesn't work either, it sounds as if you have a problem with the PCIe slot. Do you have more than one slot, so you can test another one, even if it's at a slower speed?

Edit: Did you use the same power connectors between the videocards? You may want to check that they're still in good nick as well, and else try another connector (with molex -> PCIe-6pin converter, if necessary) or PSU.

Simple, it means that your BOINC can't upload finished work to Seti. By the way, before you ask, no one can at the time of typing.

The forums are part of the BOINC back-end, so technically the request should've been done on the BOINC forums.

However, this one's easy. Just go to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/TranslateIntro and read up on what to do.
39) Questions and Answers : Wish list : BAM accounts - to be able to delete ;() (Message 1488624)
Posted 38 days ago by Profile Ageless
Uhm, and why ask for that at the Seti forums? It's not as if BAM is a part of Seti, or even of BOINC. It's a third party website, developed and maintained by Willy de Zutter. They do have their own forums: http://boincstats.com/en/forum/, you should be able to log in with either of the accounts and post about it on the BAM forums.
