I had intended to get the routine maintenance done prior to the 2014 BOINC Pentathlon Sprint rather than during it but due to a PBCAK (problem between chair and keyboard also known as operator error) the Collatz server attempted to install software it shouldn't have during the routine scheduled maintenance and there were some nasty unforeseen results. After a kernel panic followed closely by me panicking and multiple attempts at repairing the corrupted libraries without having to re-install the entire operating system, Collatz is now back online.

I've got a machine, ID 142392, with a GTS 250 that has just turned in a large and several solo units. The machine was set to not accept CPU units, just GPU units. It can't seem to get new units assigned to it. I even opened it up to CPU units, but nothing. There's nothing running on the GPU. I even restarted the machine. The logs say:


26-May-2014 20:11:42 [Collatz Conjecture] Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
26-May-2014 20:11:42 [Collatz Conjecture] Requesting new tasks for NVIDIA
26-May-2014 20:11:43 [Collatz Conjecture] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

These would be the first units after a flood of units now completed after the big change. It is running an outdated version of BOINC, but i couldn't get the current version to run, as i didn't have the shared libraries installed. I also have another machine with Linux Mint 13, which is running the latest boinc, so the plan is to grab the shared libraries from there... And though i'd really like to upgrade (there are several reasons), my guess is that this isn't the issue. It gets seti units, for example.

Opps. My bad. My SETI@Home computing preferences for disk were very strange, and BOINC thought i didn't have a disk space for BOINC, despite 11 GB free. Fixed.

And why only 11 GB free? I've no idea what i had in mind for that unused 438 GB partition that is formatted, empty, but unmounted... sigh.

I've been totally loving the 4-5 day large collatz units.

LOL. It is getting to the point that when I don't have a "brain fart" at least once a day, I wonder what's wrong with me.
