No, it's set to allow new tasks. I know how to use BOINC in general, but using anonymous platform esp. on PPC Debain is completely foreign to me.

So given all my knowledge of BOINC, it SHOULD work, but I must have messed up somewhere..

I've an iMac G4 running Debian (squeeze) and everything's fine except running BOINC.

Note that boinc DOES run (as a daemon) and I can control it just fine through

/etc/init.d/boinc-client start
/etc/init.d/boinc-client stop


and then open BOINC manager, not an issue, it runs and reads my configs and permissions ARE correct, I made sure of it (chown boinc /var/lib/boinc-client/whateverstuff)

I wasn't able to post in the number crunching forum for some reason, but wanted to know why the 3 ppc-unknown-linux apps I got from Dotsch.de - both astropulses and setiathome527 - will not get work.

Oh and BOINC says this upon launching the manager:

So that's fine. Right? It's not giving any errors (anymore) since I fixed a minor typo...

But then when I go ask for work, I only see this:

Fri 14 Oct 2011 12:23:07 PM EDT SETI@home update requested by user
Fri 14 Oct 2011 12:23:07 PM EDT SETI@home Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
Fri 14 Oct 2011 12:23:07 PM EDT SETI@home Not reporting or requesting tasks
Fri 14 Oct 2011 12:23:09 PM EDT SETI@home Scheduler request completed


confused here. Any ideas?

Not anymore I don't. ;)

Weird. Thanks for that. Problem solved. I feel silly now.

I (micro)manage everything about BOINC, so I don't know why I was using GridRepublic. I can control more by myself...

Hey,

This worries me, because it might mean a) I'm doing something wrong or b) I'm just inadvertently being a P.I.T.A to the people who then have to do all my WUs.

See...I left for a while with a computer crunching SETI Enhanced WUs at 3 an hour (3 out of 4 cores, the other one's busy with another project's WU for another few days) and came back to find that the computer had reset and detached SETI@Home of its own accord.

O_o

I mean really...what's that about? It's not the project, far as I can tell, as I've not seen any other complaints like this.

It's just very inconvenient since when it did that at 1500h, it simply abandoned all my tasks, in progress or not yet started. A bit inconvenient. (the computer then fetched a solid 5 days of work from PrimeGrid...)

So, what's up?

See this for what I mean.

And the messages tab says this:

Sat Jan 8 13:48:06 2011 SETI@home Resuming task 18dc09ai.729.2935.13.10.143_0 using setiathome_enhanced version 603

Sat Jan 8 15:00:14 2011 SETI@home Resetting project
Sat Jan 8 15:00:15 2011 SETI@home Detaching from project


Oddly my other SETI machine is doing just fine...

Pointers?

(also, ignore my join date; I didn't start work on SETI until, oh, yesterday. I know my way around BOINC, so hurl that jargon freely)
