Just noticed, that
1. with the DL of new set of WU, there was a .dll among the files (?)
2. An AP DL failed for unknown reasons. Was OK before the Version 7 thing happened.

Anyone seen this happen before?

EDIT: I renamed the app_info.xml as posted here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=71773&postid=1373766

Is this the reason why the AP DL failed?

Remove your app_info, Restart Boinc and reset the project, the project will send you the new applications.

I've done it and I've received only Astropulse_V6 6.01 for CPU and 04 for CUDA (standard apps).
I don't see any new app_info
Questions:
1) lunatics apps are dead? Forever?
2) When I will receive V7?
3) For config file in order to run multiple CUDA, have I to write it by hand?

Thanks in advance

1) All the Stock v7 GPU apps are Lunatics apps now!
2) You did go and enable 'SETI@home v7: yes' in your project preferences didn't you?
3) No, you copy and paste it from one of the posts in Number Crunching, and edit it to your requirements.

1: great! But Only GPU? Why not CPU Too? Sooner or Later?
2: NO, I didn't. Now I've done it on project page and I'v done "update" on the host 25 min ago. Nothing, untill now. Have I to reset again or have I only to wait?
3: What do you mean with (mine) requirements?

I have found this:

Make a new text file named app_config.xml and have this in the contents

<app_config>
<app>
<name>setiathome_v7</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.04</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config> 


and this

<app_config> 
<app> <name>setiathome_enhanced</name> 
<max_concurrent>6</max_concurrent> 
<gpu_versions> 
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage> 
<cpu_usage>0.04</cpu_usage> 
</gpu_versions> 
</app> 
</app_config>


As I understand I will have V6 and V7, both GPU and CPU.
On some Hosts I run only one GPU task, on three ones I run two.

now everybody runs optimized apps, and the credit calculation still based on the old standard 'SETI@home Enhanced' app runtimes / performance.
credits/h go down 75%
lol, im not sure to waste more energy and money with this project. plan was to reach 10,000,000. credits, but not with this conditions.

What is the point in reaching 10 million credits? Do you expect to get a free car then?
Why not just doing it for the sake of science (like most people here do)?

Eric said he'd post some details on the differences with the new app back on Thursday. I guess he didn't get around to doing it

Well... I reached 10,000,000! Where is my car?

expect a free car... funny guy
10 million was just my target.
i waste 120€/month for the science, so i can expect at least correct credits
electricity becomes more and more expensive, so stop computing, save resources, and use the money for nice holidays

Kwitherbitchen........
My last electric bill was $620.00 US.
That's for ONE month, kiddo.

And BTW, I do not consider it 'wasted'. I am advancing one of the most dedicated and worthwhile computer projects on the planet.
You won't get any sympathy from me on THAT one.

Nice try though.

I understand, and did not mean to be rude to you......
You played that card, friend.

I am blessed with a good job, I build fire trucks for the best fire apparatus company in the world, Pierce Manufacturing.

That does not mean bills don't get a bit tight when I have to shell out over half a grand in one month to keep the freaking lights on.

I am glad that you consider the project worthy enough to spend what you can afford on it. Yes, it's a cost that is hard at times to justify. I have some friends and relatives that think I am stark raving mad.

I drive a 1990 Oldsmobile Ciera when I could perhaps have a shiny new 'Stang in the driveway. I have chosen my priorities. My 1985 Maxda RX7 'fun' car is still pockmarked from a hail storm that smacked it a few years ago because I did not have the $4000.00 the body shop wanted to fix it.

Yes, I have made choices.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_Roving_Vehicle#Wheels_and_power says Power was provided by two 36-volt silver-zinc potassium hydroxide non-rechargeable batteries with a capacity of 121 A·h each.

So be sure to bring the correct replacements, as I don't think the tow truck can get that far.

Only errors: hostid=6598140.

What is here the problem?


Could be a bad/overheating card or bad driver. My bigger concern is why the daily quotas are being reduced when the invalid results are found. That needs to be fixed.

Yeah, should have done it first. Spending too much time putting out the fires v7 started. Hopefully today I'll get to it.
