I cannot find the app_info.xml file at all. I am running Mac OSX 10.8.4. Where would the file be?

This is my log from a recent contact with the server:

Fri May 22 01:02:56 2009 SETI@home Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a version of Astropulse v5.

This is the contents of my app_info.xml file:

<app_info>
<app>
<name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>seti_enhanced-i386-v8-coreduo-nographics</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_enhanced</app_name>

<file_ref>
<file_name>seti_enhanced-i386-v8-coreduo-nographics</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
</app_info>

What do I do to correct this?

I recently upgraded to a newer version of the BOINC manager and I started getting these messages:

Wed May 20 04:25:46 2009 SETI@home Task 17fe09aa.4180.18477.16.8.209_1: no shared memory segment

SETI@home Enhanced is not available for your type of computer.

I have a Mac running OS X 10.5.4.

Why am I getting this message?

I received these messages:

What does it mean that I am "overcommitted"?
7) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : How to attach to an additional project after already attached to Seti? (Message 409110)
Posted 2890 days ago by Profile TheOuthouseMouse
I don't have a TOOLS menu as I am using the Mac version. What should I do with this Mac version to attach to an additional project?

You’re running BOINC v5.4.9, aren’t you? When BOINC is in the foreground, you should be able to see the Tools menu in your menu bar (not the BOINC Manager window) right next to the bold BOINC application menu (followed by Activity, Advanced, Window, and Help). If not, I can’t imagine what’s wrong.

If you’re running the (unfortunately obsolete) BOINC Menubar version, it’s a different story altogether. But AFAICT your results say they come from v5.4.9, while Menubar development stopped at v5.2.13.

Aha. I got it. Unfortunately, after years of using a PC, I am still learning how to navigate around a Mac.

Thanks for the assistance.

If I want to attach to Einstein after I have already attached to Seti, how do I do that?

Same procedure as you used here: choose "Attach to project" from the Tools menu in BOINC Manager; enter the project URL
http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/
, then your e-mail address and password. If you want your S@h and E@h statistics to be collected together, use the same e-mail for both; that�s what�s used to synchronize cross-project IDs, instead of the user name.

I don't have a TOOLS menu as I am using the Mac version. What should I do with this Mac version to attach to an additional project?

10) Questions and Answers : Windows : screen saver on all the time (Message 218629)
Posted 3141 days ago by Profile TheOuthouseMouse
The screen saver seems to be disabling the power-saver functions I have set. For example, I have set the monitor to turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity, but when I am running SETI BIONIC, the screen never powers off.

Does anyone know why this is?
11) Questions and Answers : Windows : BOINC locks up and "Doesn't Respond" (Message 210398)
Posted 3150 days ago by Profile TheOuthouseMouse
I just had a hard drive crash and during the re-installation process on the new hard drive, I will get as far as the BOINC Manager popping up on my screen (it'll say "Connecting to localhost in the lower right-hand corner"), but then it siezes up. It never asks me to input "http://setiathome.berkeley.edu" or anything. I have to kill the program.

I've tried un-installing it and then re-installing several times but that doesn't seem to work -- the same thing happens each time. I've also thought that disabling Norton Anti-Virus might help, but it doesn't.

The only thing I can think of is that when I reinstalled the OS, for some reason Windows decided to call my hard drive "E:" and not "C:". I tried setting up a virtual C: (using the subst command from the dos line) but that didn't seem to work.

Does anyone have any clues as to what I should do? Please e-mail me at TheOuthouseMouse@outage.net.

12) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Boinc is terrible (Message 123789)
Posted 3330 days ago by Profile TheOuthouseMouse
That is your opinion, but in my opinion it is just fine and we are just having growing pains......


I have been running the Prime95 distributed computing program (see www.mersenne.org) and after I installed BOINC, it totally prevented Prime95 from running. Do you know of any way that I can run both program simultaneously without conflict?
