I'm getting WUs now, and they are crunching fine.

Finished one in 25m37s using version 0.4 of the code downloaded from the site (i.e., not compiled in my computer by myself) and my app_info.xml previously posted.

Machine is a Pentium IV 3GHz, 1GB RAM, running Ubuntu Hardy 32bit.

One question: The original application used to blaze to completion after passing the 50% mark. This one doesn't. Is this to be expected?

I can get work, but all WUs error out. I tried with both 0.3 and 0.4 versions and always get the same error message. I must be doing something wrong...

This is the app_info.xml file I'm using:
<app_info> <app> <name>milkyway</name> </app> <file_info> <name>milkyway_0.4_i686-pc-linux-gnu</name> <executable/> </file_info> <app_version> <app_name>milkyway</app_name> <version_num>0.4</version_num> <file_ref> <file_name>milkyway_0.4_i686-pc-linux-gnu</file_name> <main_program/> </file_ref> </app_version> </app_info>


Should the app name be different or something?

Forgot to add a piece of info --> the message from BOINC Manager:

Oh, and it's a 32bit machine.

Hi all.

I compiled the code (version 0.4) in a PIV running Ubuntu Hardy. When I got a WU, it just error with this message:

<core_client_version>6.2.15</core_client_version> <![CDATA[ <message> process exited with code 22 (0x16, -234) </message> <stderr_txt> </stderr_txt> ]]>


Any ideas?

Just 2 cents:
If the crunching time is 3 hours at least, then having that 20 minutes buffer time to fetch more WUs doesn't make much sense, does it?
I mean: there is a 20 WU limit, and if the machine asks for more, the server will tell it to sit back and wait for 20 minutes before asking again for more work. If the machine already has 20 WUs, there is no way that after only 20 minutes (each WU takes over 3 hours...) the machine will be able to download something.
So, in order to decrease the number of pointless connections to the servers, why not increase this amount of buffer time to, say... 3 hours? :D
