Message 6037 - Posted: 16 Mar 2023, 14:27:05 UTC

Folks,

I have all but abandoned WCG since work units seem to be in short supply and so I have transferred my efforts to this project. I have a couple of Raspberry Pi machines that run 24*7 and they seem busy. Also my windows machines are busy too - but I also have a Mac running OS-X 10.15 which is getting no work. I updated the BOINC version today to the latest version and it is still not getting any work.

Any thoughts?

Ian

Looking at the Applications page, there doesn't appear to be one for Apple OS, just Windows & LINUX.

Hmm, thats odd because I had thought my Mac has been returning results for the last several weeks - I may have been misreading it but there was no problem raised when I added the project (unlike LHC which requires VirtualBox).

Looking at your systems, your Linux & Windows systems are returning work, but your Darwin system which was attached to Rosetta on Feb 19 hasn't done a single Task.

You can add a Project, even if it doesn't have an application for that system's OS, it just won't be able to get any work. Go to the BOINC Manger advanced view and bring up the Event Log (Tools Tab, Event Log).
Go to the Projects Tab, select Universe & click on Update. See what messages come up in the Event Log.

Ah, I wasn't looking in the right place. I will remove the Universe@Home project from this machine and find some other work for it - the thing still hasn't had any new WCG work and has been 'uploading' the last 5 completed units for several days. Grrr.

Thanks for taking the time...
