One of my machines is getting nothing but compute errors.

Here is an example:

<core_client_version>5.10.21</core_client_version>

I think Joe is running a newer version of Ubuntu (and using it to compile the binaries). Thats a pretty weird error to say the least...

Can it be because I am running the 64 bit edition? I see the front page applications only show x86-32 bit...?

I have tried resetting and detaching but same error on the retry :(

It is running Cosmology @home just fine.....is their anything else I can do on my end? or am I just dead in the water with this host?

afaik newer versions of boinc like 5.10.28 can use 32 bit apps on plain amd64 systems. at least they said so in the einstein@home forums.

you can download the package here :

BOINC5.10.28

its not a .deb package but easy to install just do a chmod +x on the file you download and run it in the directory where you ant to install it.

From this FAQ:

When running a 64-bit Linux on a project that sends 32-bit applications only, you can run into results erroring out with process exited with code 22.

The explanation for this is that 32-bit binaries don't just work on every 64-bit Linux. If for example you install a fresh Ubuntu 6.10 or 7.04, 32-bit binaries won't work. They are not even recognized as valid executables. You first have to install the ia32 package and dependent packages. Further, for programs that link with the graphic library, you will manually have to copy a 32-bit libglut library to the usr/lib32 directory.

If after this you still get client errors, post on the forums of the project that you have this problem and ran ldd on the executable in the projects directory to see what libraries are missing. Post which libraries these are and ask for instructions on how to get them.

Thanks for your answers...at least I know now why it doesn't work. I am brand new to Linux and have no programming knowlege.

Would seem the easiest way to make this work is if the project would offer and compile a 64bit Linux application.

Thanks Jord that was simple...I just downloaded the ia32 packages,installed,and is now working :)

I get this particular error on machines with glibc < 2.4, BOINC 5.10.21 runs fine with that version, 5.10.28 doesn't.

If the science application requires at least glibc 2.4, it will exit immediately without even touching the workunit and you will get this error.

Message 1186 - Posted: 28 Dec 2007, 16:53:20 UTC

BOINC is installed in a directory's that's hosted in the /home of a SuSe 9.2 64bit, but I'm running it from both SuSe 9.2 and Kubuntu Feisty Fawn. I've got Seti, Cosmology, Einstein, lhc (when there's work), Rosetta and QMC computing work units just fine, no problem.
However, when it tries to run Milkyway-units it's erring all the way. I'm running a Bash-script that logs everything my BOINC does so the lay-out of my posts with the error message is a bit different.

These are the settings when I run it in Kubuntu:

In SuSe the settings look like this:

2007-12-28 17:22:22 [---] Disk: 39.99 GB total, 10.36 GB free

Apparently, SuSe knows some processor features Kubuntu doesn't and vice versa.

My computing errors look like this:
2007-12-26 20:20:29 [Milkyway@home] Reason: Unrecoverable error for result gs_61_1198684636_25513_0 (process exited with code 127 (0x7f, -129))


and this comes along pretty regularly too;:
2007-12-26 20:20:29 [Milkyway@home] Output file gs_61_1198684636_25513_0_0 for task gs_61_1198684636_25513_0 absent

Please disregard previous message. I'm thinking those were bad batches as the WU's I'm crunching at the moment are running just fine.

You need the 32 bit ia32 package to run Milkyway as there is only a 32 bit application and will give you those errors if you run 64bit without ia32.
