Yes. Thanks Jord. I did that about an hour and a half ago. The PPC machine received v8.03 and a task, which is about 5% processed as I write. No apparent problems so far.

My Intel machine currently has a full buffer and hasn't fetched the new SETI@home app or any tasks, but I'll report back when I have any news on that front.


Hi Guys,
I had the same issue on my Mac (intel + NVIDIA Macbook Pro) with seti@home version 8.02.

At this time, crunching process is working well with version 8.03.

Cheers,
Georges

Hi folks,

Mac OS X issue was solved with seti@home version 8.03 published today.
Crunching is working well now.

As I own Mac with INTEL GPU and NVIDIA GPU i'm waiting for seti@home v8 GPUs apps.

Cheers,
Georges

Hi Team,

I'm running SETI@home as "stock" on a Mac under OS X 10.11.2 with Boinc Manager v7.6.22

I got these errors messages each time BM is requesting new tasks from SETI (even after a project restart):

I checked setiathome.berkeley.edu folder and there are no setiathome_8.02_.... applications
only those ones:
setiathome_8.01_i686-apple-darwin
setiathome_8.01_x86_64-apple-darwin
setigraphics_8.01_i686-apple-darwin
setigraphics_8.01_x86_64-apple-darwin

Is the bug on BM client side or SETI servers side?

Thanks by advance for the update,
Georges

I came here from the Q&A on Apple PCs so hopefully this is the correct spot to pose my question/issue. I have a somewhat out-of-date MacPro that I have not upgraded the OS since Tiger (10.4). Currently, my messages seem to be saying something about powerPC which seems odd because my MacPro is an intel machine.


This is the initial part of my messages (i686 seems normal). Then I get errors about powerPC ???

Then comes this which is repeating right now.

The Mac apps were updated to v8.02 today. This looks like some server confusion in that respect.

Edit: I've just re-enabled work fetch on my PPC machine and, after getting a similar message, have received an app with the version number 8.01.


Hi,
I got same error messages on my Mac.
It looks like there is no app version available on SETI servers...

Hi,
I've been using Apple Macs since 1999, up to two Mac Pros now, 4 cores and 12 cores. Would really like to get the Nvidia and ATI GPUs working on SETI as well. Can't find much chat about this issue. Can I keep hoping that our minority group desires will come true one day soon ?


Only if your minority group will not only ask for that but will offer help in testing at least.
Urs working on MacOS OpenCL port, but he needs hardware to test on. So far we have not too many MacOS-based testers.


You can stand by me.
I'm allready a BOINC Alphatester, I can be a SETI Alphatester too.
At this time, graphics cards in my Mac Pro (NVIDIA Quadro 4000 and ATI Radeon HD 5770) are crunching for WCG and Einstein.

I can be contacted by PM.

Cheers,
Georges
