Yea same here the latest boinc beta version. Actually exactly same story as Pete's.
After the android 9 upgrade boinc continued crunching the rest of it's universe work queue but it never again received new work.

As soon as I upgraded an android 8 tablet to android 9 all work from universe ceased. So is there any word on when Android 9 devices will be supported Krystof? Or is there some other reason?
This is the device in question. https://universeathome.pl/universe/show_host_detail.php?hostid=518148

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Grimble, all I did was upgrade to the latest version of Raspbian(buster), problem solved.

Universe@home is with CPU one of the best payed project in credit in regards to other project.
usually if you compute themselve an own project with the virtual box with an I7 then he is giving with full power only 220 credits for a quarter of an hour computing for a chemistry project.
I explain:
I received an order to do that for a brilliant student of the chemistry high school of mulhouse. After solving the whole models in a quarter of an hour with 8 CPU i received 220 points.
This is the reason why i am sure that Universe@home computing is overpayed.
Instead that the boincer do critik upon the credit payment They should think that the project congratulate you for your computing because without your computing for boinc then we could not make significative advance in science.
Your Help bring the future of the planet and the first who benefit of this knoledge are your children at school or for other project your own medical system.
Best Regards


Why don't we eliminate credit altogether?
Everyone just be forced to crunch for science?

What a wonderful world it would be.....

Except the science wouldn't be getting done....... WHY?

Because most people don't live in a bubble or vacuum....... they live in a practical world where they get something in return for the massive outlays of cash it takes to crunch this work.....

What do we get? points on a screen in an electronic world.... we get nothing of any real value for the actual real value we generously give.... and to be told that the real value we give isn't worth the little bit of time and effort to be fair, or like here, that it isn't sufficient value to be fair. WE give real dollars in the form of computer purchases to set up farms or even a single machine, we give real dollars in the form of the monthly electric bills which are NOT getting cheaper.... all we ask in return is the little bit of time to recognize that by taking the time for tallying bits in the bitstream and publishing them, which is mostly done automatically with little in the way of scientist involvement....

Yet the scientists can't even do that in exchange for the massive REAL valuable resources freely given to their little dream project.........

You can have your egalitarian ideals, your welcome to them. but don't try to force them on me.....
The guilt you cite only serves to accentuate the arrogance the scientists are demonstrating by being so unfair....

Those are the points that tend to aggravate most of the common folk that are crunching the little dream projects the scientists care so much about.......

It's easy to rent a server farm now, maybe all the scientists can go rent the servers and hardware they need to do their projects and stop taking so much from those with less that still freely give........ (till it hurts sometimes)

let the scientists spend the hundreds of thousands of dollars needed to get their projects crunched.... and if they are unwilling to do such, then they shouldn't be insulting those who are making that donation willingly and happily.
But then I've been doing this long enough to know and understand that such is asking way too much from the scientific community and science lovers out there...
Dealing with people like the individual crunchers is a disdainful task for scientists, but a necessary one if they want their project to succeed.... As I said, they could always go to their university/corporate sponsor and ask that they spend the cash it takes to crunch their project and see how far that takes them...

Good luck with that....

Spot on EG I couldn't have said it better myself.

Beside why would those who say they don't care about credit care about credit? It makes no sense. Either they care or they don't? Or are they saying they want bad credit just because it's bad? That would make even less sense.

I have a small pile of android devices that have been happily crunching universe for years. One of the faster ones(for android) used to average a WU in about 6 - 8 hours, it now averages 24hrs +.

And as for the slowest android devices I run here? err If one of the new WU ever finishes i'll let you know. So far after 35 hrs it's 74% complete..

Oh well I guess that's one way to reduce load on the servers :(

Thanks Krzysztof, yea my raspberry pi's havn't been updated in many years and this gave me the perfect excuse to do so. I installed the latest version of raspbian(buster) which has all the required libraries..
Looking forward to the new android app.
Thanks again.

Hi Krzysztof,
All v 0.19 work units are now failing with the below compute error on raspberry pi 3. All v 0.18 WU's were running fine.

Sheesh, you really are a busy guy Krzysztof, sorry to add to your load. I hope things let up for you soon.

I think you certainly deserve to be paid for your efforts. Talented IT people should not be expected to work for free. But this is a volunteer project for all of us. Should not the University of Warsaw, or the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences be supporting you?

I certainly understand if you can not continue. You have done more than your fair share for science. It seems that the institutions may be letting you down. I hope they can find some way to pay you something. Good luck.

I agree. +1

Yes, some institution should pick up this project and get it funded. Until today I thought this was run by an institution, not just one person.

Agreed +1

Although i'm not sure I like the idea of a subscription model?

Another bad batch, these WU should have been in the above post but regardless they all had to be manually aborted. Only my raspberry pi's do not show this behaviour.
This is just a sample I have many more like em' "if" you're interested?

So far wingan involved has had the same problem, all though it wouldn't surprise me if they eventually validated.

Just abort them they've hung. If any task hasn't progressed in at most 30 - 40 mins it's hung, The only good thing about these badly behaving tasks is they only come in small batches. Not much comfort I know but all you can do is keep an eye on them. I had 20+ of them over a 2 day period but since then things have been running well.
