Topic 190524

I've been running einstein happily for many months now.

My platform is amd 686-linux-gnu (Slackware).

When the albert app came, suddenly the files client_state.xml and client_state_prev.xml get updated every minute.

I do not want that.

I have set "Write to disk at most every 600 seconds" in the preferences at einstein.phys.uwm.edu.

Albert ignores that completely. I've tried stopping the client, restarting, ./boinc -update_prefs , etc. all to no avail.

I do NOT want all this HD activity.

What to do?

Greetings, Mr Ragnar Schroder

Yes, the problem has been mentioned over in the Crunchers Corner. Not really discussed yet.

This is a bug, and should be discussed here.

I'm using the boinc 5.2.4 i686-pc-linux-gnu boinc client, on a std linux 2.4.29 kernel.

This was a bug in the Linux version (not in the Win32 or Mac versions). Yesterday we updated the Linux version of albert from 4.38 to 4.40. This should fix the problem.
