Give Crunch3rs statically linked version a try it worked for me with Debian Sid AMD64 on an Intel Atom and a couple of Q6600s.

I tried it, but it didn't work. Same error. v1.23 results downloaded, v1.24 app can't process?

I get the Signal 11 Error on all 3 quads.

I have noticed others getting the same or similar errors.
There does not seem to be any corelation to OS or Intel/AMD.

All 3 quads are AMD Phenom 9850BE running Debian/GNU Linux-AMD64.

Two are overclocked on different motherboards. The other is stock.

All 3 use 4GB OCZ Reaper 1066 ddr2.

I'd like to get back on this project, so I need some info about what to do.

Thanks, Bob!

I'll stick with 3x+1 and let the rest of TeAm AnandTech pass me by! Oh, well.

Don't know if you got your box's running yet or not but if not I still think it may be something to do with the permissions since the Wu's error out right away soooooo lets check those again please ... :)

1. Are you able to run other projects okay ???

2. Find your Boinc Projects Folder and see if the "astronomy_1.23_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu has the Allow executing file as program Box Checked ???

3. Find the boinc or boinc_client, the boinccmd, the boinc_cmd & the boincmgr executables & make sure they have the proper permissions & also that they have the Allow executing file as program Box Checked on them too ???

4, If all else fails try to do a Re-Install of the Boinc-Client & Boinc-Manager, reset the Project & try, Detach & re-attach to the project & try again.

Hopefully something there will work for you & get your box's running the Project again, good luck ... :)

Too bad all the Dev's have abandoned the project or maybe they could suggest something too ...

I have done all of the above.

Currently running 3x+1 on all 3 quads and doing quite well.
I checked all the permissions. I went so far as to download 8 WUs and suspend so I could catch them in the act. All permissions were ok.

I installed and tested BOINC 5.2.10, 6.2.12, and now 6.2.14. All work with 3x+1 and none work with Milkyway.

What do you mean, the devs have abandoned the project? Is this no longer a viable project. Maybe I should stay on 3x+1.

I checked permissions and they are fine.

I reduced my memory frequency from 1066 to 533. That didn't change anything.

If it is a hardware problem it is finding the same problem on 3 different boxes.

The only things the 3 boxes have in common are Phenom 9850BE, 4GB of OCZ Reaper 1066 and Seagate 500GB sata drives.

I have been getting similar errors since Friday 8:32AM PDT. Before that, I had crunched for a week and earned 163K credits on my 3 quads---Debian/GNU Linux-AMD64 and BOINC client and manager 6.2.12. Others seem to have problems with the same WUs.

I have found no pattern to suggest that it is AMD/Intel, Windows/Linux, 64Bit/32/Bit, or BOINC versions.

How do I get some good stuff to crunch?


Strange, I'm running Linux Ubuntu on Multiple Box's with no Errors at all, I see the Wu's have the Signal 11 Error which generally is a Write error when trying to write to the Disk or a No Heartbeat from the BOINC Client.

Try Upgrading to the new 6.2.15 if you can, I've run the 6.2.14 on 1 Box with no Problems & then Upgraded that Box to 6.2.15 with no problems so far. The rest of my Box are running 5.10.45 with no Problems ...

I have upgraded to 6.2.14 which is the latest stable version available for lenny.
I also unchecked the get test WUs from preferences.

Both changes have had no effect on 3 quads. I will look into the file permissions to see if there is something there that would prevent a write to disk.

1.23 WU progress hits 50% at 3+ hours and hits 100% about 10 seconds later.

@John-- I'm sorry you think mine is bigger than yours, but I refuse to cut it off.
