I changed the plan_class logic on the server. Some people are NOT using the latest BOINC version and that's a big problem. The plan_class logic assumes that the OS version (normally the kernel version) also reports the Android version. When it isn't reported, it can't determine whether to send the PIE or non-PIE app so it sends neither. At least, that's the way it used to work. I have now semi-randomly decided that if it is running kernel 3.4 or later (as my phone reports kernel 3.4 while running Android 4.4.2), it will get the PIE version. Anything less gets the non-PIE version.

Secondly, I recompiled the app just to make sure that the PIE compiler flags were present and re-deployed it as micro and mini collatz version 6.01.

So, if you could all give it a try, I'd appreciate it.I'm hoping that a) you will now get work and b) it will be the android_arm_pie plan class.

I reset the project on my nexus 7 and immediately received four mini collatz 6.01 WUs. All four are currently running so I'll report back once they get some processing time under their belt.

Looks like an issue with non Android. This is the only GPU project I have selected and I cannot get work. I returned a unit today, it just says none are available, but plenty are in the queue

I have a Collatz conjecture file running. It has been running for 447 hours and says that 5707 hours remain. What is causing this? My Seti and Milky Way@home are running normally.

I would abort it and move to the next one.

Go into the project preferences and change the settings so that you no longer run the large WUs. That being said, my guess is that the GPU driver crashed and restarted. Unfortunately, OpenCL isn't smart enough to know about that so it is waiting for the GPU to finish and it never will since it "rebooted".

I need to add a check in the next version so that if a GPU call takes to long, it retries it once or twice and then exits nicely (but with a failure) when it can't recover.

Since you made the change I am still unable to get Large units on my GPUs.

It appears that there was an issue with the work generator getting access to the mysql socket. I restarted both the daemons and the database and I think it should be working now.

Everything is working as expected now. Thank you for fixing the issues.

UPDATE:

successfully processed two mini WUs and received two additional WUs.
