RE: Well it works perfectly

Well it works perfectly except that I need to remove the app_info file to get new work ...

Is this file OK for Windows 7 64 bits?

Thanks

You may have to setup a scheduled hourly update using boinccmd to get new work with an app_info.xml file in place. You can do this with Scheduled Tasks in Windows or cron in Linux.

boinccmd --project http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/ update

32-bit and 64-bit configuration are the same. The apps are 32-bit.

I ignore it on XP and get plenty WU's.

I can post up my config that I use for XP 64-bit if that would help. It is based on the original config in this thread with a couple of the other apps and I have not had any issues getting work as long as I run the scheduled update.

Well, you can ignore it as I do and see what happens, after the stop boinc and remove app_info part I get all the WU's I need, but I didn't expect I'd have to spell it out.

RE: I recently got a couple

Quote:

I recently got a couple of the new Linux CUDA BRP WUs and all errored out. Reason: my 64-bit Debian Squeeze lacks 32-bit variant of libz.so.1 by default.

I guess I'm not the only one lacking it so it might be wise to statically link libz into application as 32-bit gets served also for 64-bit linux hosts. Specially so as previous BRP binaries (1.04 CPU only) did not depend on shared variant of libz.

We looked into this again and libz is used (dynamically) by the CUDA driver library. This means we can't change this dependency. The only way around your specific issue would be the following:

  • * Install the 32-bit compatibility library package (should be installed already to run the current app)
    * Wait for a 64-bit release of our app that would link (indirectly, via libcuda) against the 64-bit version of libz

Hope this helps,

Oliver
