Hi,

Can someone provide me with a valid app_info.xml for Linux? I'd like to run 2 WUs simultaneously. Thanks and sorry for the noob question, but I've never used an app_info for crunching

You don't need anonymous platform and app_info for running multiple tasks per GPU. Go to your account preferences page and then Einstein@Home preferences.
Edit a venue (home, work, school...) your host is using, then under "GPU utilization factor of BRP apps" enter 0.5
Change will apply as your boinc downloads new tasks.

Be aware that setting is a

Be aware that setting is a "when I'm good and ready to listen to it" setting so it doesn't change behavior immediately. Let the current task(s) complete and it will do it.

Somewhat sooner than that, usually. The operational message is passed down from project server to your host with the next WU downloaded after you change the setting in your project preferences. And it applies even to work previously downloaded (don't know whether it applies to work already executing).
