Well, to resolve this issue I have taken my 6 CPU Windows 10 system off of Milky Way and put it back on World Community Grid - however, my Linux 4 CPU system seems to not be having any issues with the Milky Way files so I will leave it there as long as it doesn't suddenly develop any problems...

I have a file working on my 6 CPU system that is a 7 day computation. The due date is 11/19 at 15:30. It's only about 1/2 way through the file - I also have 15 other files pending that range from 3 to 14 hours, all due 11/19... Should I just abort them so they can be reassigned or allow them to run?

At this point, should I even be running N-Body files at all?

Got it, thank you!

I have my GPU "suspended" because I don't want my video card used (tends to overheat when stressed because the fan is going bad). Even though I have all the options set for suspended I still get tasks downloaded that is for the GPU. How do I stop this?

I removed the project, upgraded from Mint 17 to Mint 18, then reinstalled the program and project. Everything works now (after some frustrations figuring out how to get a root terminal window)...

I'm not getting any credit for work done on my Linux machine. I'm still cranking out work but my average for all work credit is down to zero (my Windows machine reflects a major drop in total work credit, but that machine is still receiving credit for work done).

Thank you! Hopefully that's all that was needed!

Even though I have deselected the "Home N-Body" option, I still get these downloaded on my Linux Mint system - which apparently can't run them because it just sits there and does nothing... I have reset the project a couple of times and it resolves for a short while - but eventually these projects keep downloading for some reason...

OK, uninstalled and reinstalled, now working...

Thank you for your input!

Man, I can't believe I forgot to download the NVIDIA drivers! OK - that system is done... now all of a sudden on my Linux Mint machine, I have this:



Work never begins, it just downloads the files and sits there...

I had been running Windows 10 since it came out - once NVIDIA got their driver issues figured out I never had a problem with it...

Don't know why I get "Aborted" at the bottom - I have it set to use my GPU (and it used to before I had to replace my hard drive and reinstall everything).

My previous settings were to use this computer GPU and all 6 CPU's - one job per CPU. Now things don't look the same and I'm afraid I screwed something up on the installation.
