Thats what I did - I went and added it manually and it went in just fine.

I've found that the easiest way to make sure I get the correct address to add any project to my android for BOINC is to go to the project page of the BOINC manager on my main computer, find the project I want to add, click on the properties for that project and the actual address for that project is always in that space so its easy to get it there to put into my android's files when adding the new project to the list of android projects I'm going to run.

makes it a quick and pain free way to find a URL!

I've been running BOINC Android projects for a while now - I just went to Add Collatz and its not yet available to add as an available project...I will keep watching for it to be available and will add as soon as it comes available though.

Maybe you have to do something to make it become available through the project itself??? Quite a few projects have become available now.

Just to let you know - I have 4 completed jobs sitting out there - a couple minutes ago I tried to abort one of them as you requested and the BOINC system wouldn't allow me to change it by aborting it so it and the other 3 jobs are still sitting there waiting...

Sigh...

I look forward to the new improved version of Collatz when you are back up and running!

Thanks, I did read that thread and have contributed re: downloading the upgrade of Catalyst 13.4 which is now available from AMD as of Saturday according to an e-mail I received from them.

I have downloaded the new version of Catalyst but that apparently isn't going to make any differences as was anticipated according to the thread you referenced as I am still getting the same error message since I downloaded Catalyst 13.4 so that is not going to be the resolution to the problem.

Here is an event log for 3 jobs since I downloaded 13.4 Catalyst.

Here is the link for AMD's auto detect and download page for anyone who might need it.


I am making Barbs link clickable:
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/auto_detect.aspx

Barb in case you don't know how you put [url] in the beginning before the http, and then at the end you put [/url] to tell it that the link is done. If you are doing an image you would use [img] before the link and them [/img] after the link. Like this:



Thank you, I was unaware of that for publishing urls or images in this forum...but for the future, I now know.

I went in and downloaded 13.4 Catalyst yesterday and I'm still having the same failures with the Solo jobs so apparently that is not going to solve the issue...sigh.

I got a notice from AMD that release 13.4 of Catalyst is available for download now 2 days ago so if it is going to fix the problem it is available to download at AMD now, however when I went in to check and see if my system needed the update AMD didn't detect that I needed to upgrade to this version.

I never had any problems with running colatz tasks but since the new colatz solo jobs have been running I've had nothing but computation errors and it puzzles me.

I've reset the task, I've deleted it and reloaded it thinking that this may take care of any possible problems but that doesn't seem to be it.

I read some threads that indicate that there may be a problem having to do with AMD's catalyst program but I have the most recent version of that on my system unless I want to load the new beta version that I got notice about just yesterday from AMD but I'm not sure that I want to try that just yet.

Anyway, I've yet to have one of the new solo tasks complete successfully and I wonder if anyone else is having the same problems and if there are any solutions.

Since I reset and downloaded the project again here is the event log for the project:

You will notice that it says that an output file for the task is absent and I don't know if that has anything to do with why the computation errors are happening or not.

My computer's id with the project is 104600

And following is the information about my computer that should give you specifics to help with what my computer is capable of.
