Why do I get that much errors on my, see here.
root server

Mostly with the SSE2 App. Shall I reset the project?
Same crashes with the Gamma-ray pulsar search #1 v0.23 too.

Any help is very appreciated.

All errors on my root server

I know almost nothing about linux, but the error on all those task is about not beeing able to write the init file...
May be, there is some permissions issue, or not enough disk space (at all or may be not enough assigned for BOINC usage), or some other app doing a heavy or prioritary use of the disk, or a bad sector on the disk...

It's software raid. And there

It's software raid. And there is enough room on the disk: 96,63 free space.

Looks like a permission

Looks like a permission problem. The "init file" is init_data.xml in the slots. As not all tasks seem to be affected, it might be limited to a few slots. Did you run the BOINC Clisnt as 'root' once, and later as user 'boinc'?

I'd peek into files and directories under /var/lib/boinc-clisnt or wherever the BOINC data directory is on your machine, watch out for missing write permissions and possibly wrong owners.

RE: Looks like a permission

Looks like a permission problem. The "init file" is init_data.xml in the slots. As not all tasks seem to be affected, it might be limited to a few slots. Did you run the BOINC Clisnt as 'root' once, and later as user 'boinc'?

I'd peek into files and directories under /var/lib/boinc-clisnt or wherever the BOINC data directory is on your machine, watch out for missing write permissions and possibly wrong owners.

Boinc is run as boinc!

[edit]before that post I did a chown -R boinc:boinc *
Some of my files where in the boinc:vboxusers group - but that shouldn't matter.

Well, if there was an ownership problem it certainly isn't visible anymore then.

Does the problem persist, i.e. do you still get the same errors?
