Well, so far I was starting the 5.4.9 client first with "run_client" and then "run_manager". Then I read from the BOINC home page that the manager starts the client if it is not running and I started giving the "run_manager" command only. Maybe this is the reason. I shall go back to the old way and see what happens.

I confirm this guess. Starting the BOINC client first and the BOINC manager second gives back the stderr.txt text.


Might be worth a bug report to BOINC

Up to August 11 stderr.txt was not empty, now it is on all results. Maybe the program has gone in vacation...Cheers.

Have you changed something at the BOINC Client side, e.g. upgraded it or attached to a new project then? It may also be that due to some change in permissions the Client is not able to store the stderr output of the App anymore.

Thats my case - I start only "run_manager" - so now I start "run_client" - results will be after few hours

I tried entering a bug report in BOINCzilla but the "Add a new bug" form does not come up. I can only query the database. This using both Mozilla 1.7.13 and Firefox 1.5.06. I have php4 on my SuSE Linux 9.3.

Now I can confirm this idea too. Result is e.g. here

Bruce has made the Beta Apps

Bruce has made the Beta Apps 4.17 and 4.24 official. You can now remove the app_info.xml and restart the client to switch back to the official, auto-update path.

Thanks a lot for participating in this Beta Test.

Are you using the Beta Test

Are you using the Beta Test package or did the Client download the official App?

Try the Beta Test package. Check the md5 sum before installing. Check permissions of the BOINC directory and subdirectories.

The stderr of your 4.16 results is empty. Try to start the Client manually before the Manager.

Not being able to file a bug report in BOINCzilla I posted a message in the BOINC cruncher forum about this suggestion, already confirmed by others.

4.17 would have been the official app downloaded [[edit] hmmm maybe not now that I think about it could be the Beta, I will delete it and let the pgm download.] Blown the daily quota so I will try / check above and see how it goes when I am able to get some WU.

Thanks
