Running seti@home on an Android7.0 phone and BOINC 7.4.53 and recently i get many "computational errors." RAM is generally prox 3.5-4GB. What can i do to help minimize these errors?

Thx for the time and attention to this query.

Nothing. The Seti applications aren't compatible with Android 7.
Best to stop doing work.

We'll have to wait for Eric to compile new applications. I've been waiting for 2 months now.

I actually have 1 unit that succeeded, but it was a noise unit (30+ spikes in under 2 minutes), all other 30-ish units failed with SIGSEGV. This is on BOINC 7.4.53 on Android 7.1.2 (LineageOS 14.1)

Hi there
I have 2 identical machines (small cpu, 500Mo runing ubuntu 12.04), installed basicall in the same afternoon, the same way.
remote_hosts.cfg is ok
no specific line in global_prefs_override.xml added
One got 7.0.27 version, but the other 7.0.24
boinc manager installed ok, conneted to localhost(version) displayer, working fine in both sites.

No way to get it on the 7.0.27 version instead of the 7.0.24.
And of course, the 7.0.27 version runs smoothly (althought had to deal with error 155), but the 7.0.24 doesn't run
On the manager of 7.024 version I see works donwloaded, and immediately returned with error status (calculation error) ...
There is no boinc task running in the tasks list, and of course no setiathome_8.05_i686 ... tasks either.

WTF is wrong ???
Another detail, in the 7.0.24 site, the menu of the boincmgr (that's run fine) does not display; only "Fi" begining of Fichier (File) but nothing on the line.

found solution
7.0.24 only errors for ubuntu 12.04 is a known bug. Ok
so why this machine got 7.0.24 version in august 2017 ?

solution to migrate smoothly to 7.0.27 is there
