Message 1212870 - Posted: 1 Apr 2012, 16:51:30 UTC - in response to Message 1212851.  

Thank you Richard. Mine was set to 6 hours but there must be a bug as they come far more often than that.

15/03/2012 04:39:48 | SETI@home | Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of AstroPulse v6.
15/03/2012 05:44:09 | SETI@home | Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of AstroPulse v6.
15/03/2012 07:32:13 | SETI@home | Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of AstroPulse v6.

If you didn't have an app_info and didn't have the AP V6 switch selected, you would get a message saying 'there is AP v6 work available, but your preferences are set to not accept it',
it's just the server's way of saying why you didn't get that task it could have sent you,

Claggy



What if you are getting the message:

“Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of AstroPulse v6”

and you DO have an app_info.xml file, you DO have the app, you DO have the AP v6 switch selected, and you DO want V6 AP work units?

I am receiving MB work units and the occasional 5.05/5.06 work unit but so far no V6. What is the server saying in this case?


My app_info.xml looks like the following and I see nothing wrong with it, but perhaps I am overlooking something. It wouldn’t be the first time.



<app_info>

<app>
<name>astropulse_v6</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>ap_6.01r546_sse3_linux32</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>astropulse_v6</app_name>
<version_num>601</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>ap_6.01r546_sse3_linux32</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

<app>
<name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>AK_V8_linux32_ssse3</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_enhanced</app_name>
<version_num>6.10.58</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>AK_V8_linux32_ssse3</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

<app>
<name>astropulse_v505</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>ap_5.06r411b_sse_linux32</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>astropulse_v505</app_name>
<version_num>506</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>ap_5.06r411b_sse_linux32</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

</app_info>


Sorry about the indents being stripped away but I did put extra spaces between the sections which might help make it more readable.


I can't see anything wrong with the app_info to do with AP v6, the 6.10.58 version number for setiathome_enhanced is a bit odd,

The only thing i can think of is: you have restarted Boinc haven't you? if you edited the app_info, and didn't restart Boinc, you'd still be using the app_info settings from earlier.

Claggy


I have restarted boinc numerous times and even rebooted the server during an off time when it wouldn't be noticed. I have checked permissions, owner/group, and even copied the app into several directories beyond the one where all the apps normally are in case it is looking for the app in a new location.

I don't receive the "unusable version" every time there is an update and often receive the "no tasks available" and "reached a limit on tasks in progress" instead but it is funny that I will still get a 505/506 download, and plenty of MBs when selected, but never a 601 when there should be a lot more available for 601 than 505/506.

That is exactly where it is.

Actually app_info.xml is in /usr/sbin/BOINC and the apps and work units are in
/usr/sbin/BOINC/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/. Is that what you meant?

/usr/sbin ? That's way wrong. Nothing from BOINC should be there. It is a location for root user/system-only executables.
You should move boinc to something like /var/boinc
And app_info.xml should also be in projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/

No, the app_info.xml should be in the setiathome project folder, not the Boinc Data directory, since the app_info is for a particular project.

I can certainly try moving it to /usr/bin, but would that help the

Get the correct app_info.xml into the project directory (setiathome.berkeley.edu) since that's the only place BOINC will look for project information. There must be a different one there without the AP v6 entries.

01-Apr-2012 12:12:59 [---] Libraries: libcurl/7.21.4 OpenSSL/0.9.8n zlib/1.2.5 libidn/1.22

While not related to the APv6 problem you were having, I would try to keep these libraries up to date. Recent updates fix many security issues and bugs.

libcurl 7.25.0 http://curl.haxx.se/
OpenSSL 1.0.1 http://openssl.org/
zlib 1.2.6 http://zlib.net/
libidn 1.24 http://www.gnu.org/software/libidn/

I retract this advice. It seems one or more of the interface API's may have changed between versions. I just tried to update libcurl on one of my own systems and BOINC won't start now, so leave it for the devs.

Thanks for the information. I checked slackware-current and curl is still being shown as version 7.21.4. Pat is generally pretty good about staying current while keeping everything stable. Perhaps he realized 7.25.0 was not quite ready for prime time and that is why it has not been updated. I will check on the others. Thanks again.
