I found another task with a lot more content in the stderr.txt output file.

It looks like the application couldn't properly compile the OpenCL wisdom file. Can someone offer a suggestion or comment on whether they ever have run into the problem of the wisdom file not compiling in Linux for MilkyWay. My other projects, Seti and Einstein have not had any issue compiling the wisdom file for their OpenCL applications.

Keith (or anyone else who sees this thread...),

I popped something in your "New Linux system trashes all tasks" thread in the Number Crunching forum which may or may not help...

Cheers - Al.

Just to make closure on this thread. The problem is that MW@home doesn't correctly support BOINC versions earlier than 7.6.31. So to prevent these types of errors you need to use a modern client that can handle the very long parameter strings of certain tasks.
