Robert, as Gatekeeper has advised you >>
Since you're using app_info (anon platform), you need to run the Lunatics installer, v0.41.

This is the solution !
If you want more details, open a thread in the forum NUMBER CRUNCHING.

I am not sure how the Lunatics installer would work for him, as he is running OS/2 on one rig and a version of Linux on the other.

I have no past experience with either, and am not sure what the Lunatics installer offers for either of those operating systems.

I am only posting this so that others are aware before offering further advice.

The Lunatics installer is a Windows-only program, and the SETI programs it installs are Windows-only too.

Third-party SETI programs for other platforms are available: advice on where to find them and how to install them will be readily available if you come and ask in Number crunching

Thank you for the clarification, Richard.
I suspected that was the case.

Have you uninstalled LUNATICS (v0.40) ?
Uninstalling this old version of LUNATICS is mandatory before any other operation.

As far as I know, there has NEVER been any need to uninstall a previous opti installation before updating with a new Lunatics installer.


I had to uninstall v0.40 first! After that my computer was ready to work as it should!

Why 'have to'? What went wrong when (if) you tried just to update? As Mark says, the installer is designed not to need a separate uninstallation stage (although some advice was given to undo the effects of the installation, during the interim period between the main project release and the availability of the new installer).

I can confirm that I installed Lunatics 0.41 over the top of 0.40 without any problems at all. Provided of course that you shut down all Boinc tasks and the Boinc Manager beforehand.

7.0.0.64 (x64) of what?
(SETI@home Version 7 (the topic of this thread) is not BOINC 7.0.64)

An error on downloading is not a BOINC error. In this case it's something you have to set in your preferences. You're not downloading the seti_700.jpg
That's probably because your ISP re-compresses image files.

In your computing preferences set Skip image file verification? from No to Yes. If you use local advanced preferences, make sure to set it there!

Tomorrow I'll post explaining why we wanted version 7 and what's different about the analysis it does.


When is Eric going to post this??

It's morning again and I guess I'll squeeze in one last post on this "fetch work / not requesting tasks" issue and then it looks like I should make way for installer-related posts.
[quote]One is not processing GPU tasks and is on BOINC v7.0.64. The other is processing nVidia GPU tasks and is on BOINC v7.0.28. Both machines are running Windows 7 x64. This seems to support the idea that this bug is unique to v7.0.64.

Sounds reasonable.


I just want to mention that I am running BOINC 7.0.64 on Windows 7 64 bit and that the transition to Seti@home v7 worked flawlessly for me. My log indicates that BOINC has been running 24/7 since the midth of May.

As a matter of fact the transition went that smoothly that I didn't even notice the update until I looked at the screensaver yesterday morning and was surprised seeing Seti@home v7 in the headline.

I have sent a message to Eric telling him that we are all very interested in his explanations about v7.

I know he was really, really stretched thin during the first few days of the conversion. But I don't know what else he may have had on his plate this week or if he is in the lab.

I know he intended to post about it before this. Please give him time......

Mostly because of additional processing with v7 vs v6. And 30% is (IMO) below average. Even "shorties" on my 5xx GPU's are running double or more the previous times.

The extra amount of processing required is pretty constant across all ARs. So it actually shows up most (it's a higher %age increase) for shorties - it's less noticeable at lower ARs.
