1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : download failures on GPU tasks (Message 68389)

You do not need to worry about just Linux Mint being a noteworthy part of the problem - I'm having the same problem with Xubuntu 14.04, 16.04.06, and also 18.04.02!
I suspect it has something to do with the servers, or maybe that the servers using some combination of https and other settings that makes the client unable to download.
I don't know if the project admins are viewing these forums daily or if we should PM them?

Yes, I've read it, and I actually also successfully tested it on one of my computers:
After having downloaded, and chmod:ed, and placed the file in the correct folder, it started by itself after a while.
However, this is certainly not the correct procedure to solve the problem!
I still wonder what stopped Boinc from downloading it in the first place?
Is it some kind of certificate problem with the https-server?

I'm also having problem starting up some new machines (not running m@h before):
I get a lot of tasks, but they all are listed as "downloading" - apparently waiting for one single file:
milkyway_1.46_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
that just refuses to get downloaded.
It stands waiting for hours and hours, still at 0%.
It just has to be some server issue.
Hope the admins can attend it soon, so I can get my 5 new machines to run some m@h soon.

Yes, I can confirm this!

I currently have 304 "in progress" to my different computers, but none of them seems to have a "wing man".

The same goes for the ones that I've completed and reported, and that is now in "Validation inconclusive".

My heap of "Validation inconclusive" is constantly growing, and is already 267, while none of my reported tasks seems to be validated.
Credits totally stuck! :-(

What is happening???
