Topic 223041

I'm not tech illiterate, but I thought everything was running smoothly for me here after S@H shut down, until I just started getting error messages about "Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo)" not being available.

Is there no CPU app for that or something? Or just not 64-bit linux?

 Is there something I can do to fix that? Unlike on S@H when I was using anonymous platform and third-party apps, I just left this one on automatic defaults, so.. I thought if it needed a new app, it would have downloaded it.

No, there isn't an app for

No, there isn't an app for your platform.

Appplications

Mostly just for ARM and Android.  The BPR4 search is mostly mothballed.  Why don't you try one of the other searches like the FGRP5 Gamma Ray search.

That is the only other cpu search running currently and unfortunately even that is out of work now because they have turned off the splitters.

I'm looking now and it's on

I'm looking now and it's on the default of every task type there is.

I guess I could just uncheck BPR4 since I won't be able to do anything with that anyway, but if that's all the scheduler wants to send, then there's not much I can do about that.

At the time I joined, I was doing a mixture of two different task types, but in the past 3-4 weeks or so, I've gotten nothing but FGRP5. Not complaining, just an observation.

The BOINC client is a bit

The BOINC client is a bit funny when dealing with all apps allowed in the project configuration.  Even when it is not possible to run an app because of incompatible hardware, the client still thinks it has to give every app a chance to run to get the application APR computed to eventually decide which app is best to run on the host.

And both FGRP5 and BRP4 tasks are available again. The splitters are running again.  Seems the admins take them down occasionally for some hidden reason without mentioning they are doing so.

But they usually re-appear in a few days normally and work flows again.
