Can anybody provide an example for the app_info file entry for the S6BUCKET run?

APP_INFO File Entry for S6BUCKET

I'm not using an app_info, but here are the relevant bits from client_state.xml which will allow you to construct your own. This from 32-bit Windows, and a Core2-class CPU.

[pre]
einstein_S6Bucket

einstein_S6Bucket
101
1.000000
1.000000
SSE2
6.13.0

einstein_S6Bucket_1.01_windows_intelx86__SSE2.exe



einstein_S5R6_3.01_graphics_windows_intelx86.exe
graphics_app

[/pre]
The rules of this game are: Work from an existing app_info.xml file. Make a fresh copy of the and blocks, and update those with the names and numbers from the example above. (I've stripped out a few that you won't use). Make a new block for any new files listed - looks like you'll only need the new main program, from that lot (and remember to download the file, too!).

If you get stuck, refer to anonymous platform.

Thank you Richard. I've got

Thank you Richard.
I've got it. The problem is to find out, which files are needed. The hint with the client_state.xml file is perfect.

Thank you Richard,
added the section to my app_info.xml and downloaded the >einstein_S6Bucket_1.01_windows_intelx86__SSE2.exe, restarted boinc-client. I think, that einstein@home use the same files on Win32 and Win64, so i hope that it works. Now i'm waitung for the first wu....

Hmmmm. Why is that

Hmmmm. Why is that nicely-formatted [pre] block I posted slowly losing its line breaks - and why do they come back again in #input mode?

Edit - and why did they come back again for good, when I posted that?

Looks great in Firefox 3.6.17, with multi-level indents ( 4 spaces per indent ).

Cheers, Mike.

I was wondering about the Gravitational Wave S6 GC search v1.01 I just noticed one of my machines had just finished one and had 3 more in progress but hadn't heard about this one.

(I just checked 2 other pc's that I don't check as often since they only run Einstein and they have finished several of them already)

This has nothing to do with

This has nothing to do with buckets, but the Gravitational Wave S6 GC search v1.01 seem to run nicely faster on my machine: 13800 - 14000 s vs. 13200 - 13400 s. Going from 3.9 to 4.0 GHz on my Sandy Bridge (HT on) also resulted in ~13400 s for the last S5 WUs. That's more of a difference than the difference in credits for these WUs - nice!

Quick check: linux Nehalem based i7 is also faster, as well as a C2Q under Win.
