I could not find the min requirements to run this project but I dug out my old dual pentium 3 (tualatin ) machine and attached to the project. It seems that some of the w/u de-80-DR8... start to process fine and the others fail straight away.
I know the old pent 3 are a bit ..... old, but are they nolonger able to do this project.
Its also on linux, an old version (fedora 6).

Is there a min requirements page??

That's not the problem with your pc, the problem is outlined on your results page on the units that errored out. The error is:

milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_i686-pc-linux-gnu: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_i686-pc-linux-gnu)

In short you are missing a required set of files and then it should run just fine. As for finding them I have no clue as I am not a Linux guy.

Another problem is that you are running a VERY old version of the Boinc software, you are running version 6.2.14, whereas my own Linux pc running at a different project is running version 7.2.42. Upgrading might give you the new files, I have no clue, the Linux I am running was plug and play and is just an experiment for me, but upgrading will certainly give you access to all the latest features and eliminate all the bugs the old versions had.

Yes it looks like its down to very old linux version. 2 results have been returned OK 1 more to follow. I did wonder if the pent 3 had become to old. Its possible to upgrade to a later version of linux but in all reality its a waste of electricity to use these old machines for more than a few days but fun to fire them up and give them something to do now & then.

I am not sure my dual pent 75 would complete a w/u in the time scales needed....

I also think it could come down to your electricity costs.
