Hi,
Not sure if this is the right place to ask for advice.

The past few days MilkyWay@home (Separation 1.46) is stuck on a "computation error" for a number of jobs. I don't know how to rectify this. There are approx 15 projects (due Jan 11) with names that vary from

de_modfit_80_bundle4_4s_south4s...
de_modfit_14_bundle4_testing_3s4f...

Some of the names appear redundant.

Any advice?

Thanks!

The 9400m processor does not support double precision arithmetic so (so far) all 68 tasks have errored out and will continue to do so

The project does not filter out users who have co_processor that cannot do the computation. That might even be a "BOINC" thing but in anyevent it is the project that needs to handle this.

Thanks. I *think* I understand.
The jobs are gone now...
