Thanks for the suggestion.
However, I get my Mac OSX Core2 Duo optimized apps from http://www.arkayn.us/. These apps do not have cuda support. Regardless, I set my SETI@home preferences to not send GPU work.
I did get SETI@home to run the remaining jobs in the folder by setting 'no new jobs'. I still have a big backlog, but most of the new jobs are those strange 1hr jobs.

Thanks again,
Chris

I have a similar, but probably not CUDA related problem as OSX does not appear to have any CUDA enabled apps. Anyway, my account lists >45 work-units as in-progress. All of these work units appear in my "/Library/Application Support/Bionic Data/projects/setiathome.berkely.edu" folder but are not being used. Bionic continues to download new work units. I'm sure that I can meet the deadlines for the work units if I can get them started soon.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can get SETI to run the jobs in my data folder?

Thank you for putting my mind at ease.
I tried your suggestion and I did immediately get SETI WU's. I have about 4 Einstein@home WU's in the que right now and they are taking priority. I don't get nearly as many done as SETI units as they take ~11-13hrs each.

Thanks again.

Hello again.
I don't want to blame the optimized apps, but I can't get any work for SETI! It is odd that I was able crunch to WUs using the optimized apps, but I have not received work since the 11th. I also noticed that I have no less than 9 WU's listed as in-progress on my results page. Two were even reportedly sent on the 13th.

I tried 'update' the project and have even 'reset' it, but I still can't get work. I have been receiving the same message every time SETI communicates with the server: "Not reporting or requesting tasks".

P.S. I've been crunchin' for Einstein@home in the meantime (at least 80 hours worth).

Thank you Arkayn and Alex Kan for you mac installer:
Since I'm just getting introduced to the world of compiling BSD applications, I'm not ready to make my own just yet.

Anyway, my next concern is with the 'app_info.xml' file. Will this have to be manually edited after every update from Alex? Will SETI still continue to update my applications automatically and over-ride the app_info.xml file?

I have not been able to locate clear answers or how-to's in regard to answering these questions in either the lunatics' or SETI@home's forums.

After attempting to install the Lunatics’ optimized (setiathome_6.03_i686-apple-darwin) Astropulse application on Mac Core2 running 10.6.2 in 64-bit mode, I found that I could not get any work for SETI@home enhanced when Astropulse ran out of work.

After browsing the Lunatics forums for way too long, I saw recommendations to reinstall the Bionic client, and reset the SETI project, after deleting the “app_info.xml” file.This may have worked, but I still get errors when trying to obtain enhanced work units.

I also have a backlog in my online results of 6 pending workunits but I don’t know where they are or how I could get them back.

Presently, I’m letting my Einstein@home cache run down in case I need to do any major surgery to fix this problem.

Sorry for the long log, but it’s for the best...
