Hi

I assume that any plan with Mac was long overdue ?

Thanks.

For any boinc project with quorum > 1 = the other boinc participant that calculates the same task as yours.

Hi

No new plan for a macOS app ?

(I can always ask ! :) )

(nope... I won't be able to help :( ...)

Destroying the inter-project credit balance, generating so much frustration to a majority of crunchers (without ASICS) who simply vanished in the statistics compared to others (with ASICS), pretending to compare things that cannot be compared (versatile computation vs. uniquely specialized coin calculation). At such a high level that some statistical sites decided to ignore BU credits (StatSeb) or show them in a separate view (BoincStats).

But the same thing already happened when GPGPU came into boinc world years before : putting into the same account calculation output (decision of Boinc itself pretending that "Gflops are Gflops") done from two different worlds (versatile unlimited CPU calculation against already specialized and limited GPU calculation - some projects will never be able to use a GPU application due to the nature of the calculation performed), the same frustration was created among the crunchers (GPU newcomers making in a few weeks what CPU crunchers had generated in the past 10 years) and the credit balance was already broken at that time.

Some statistical sites even decided to invent dedicated CPU ranking in order to restore equity among crunchers.

Why are invalid results giving credit at all? I've not seen another project give credit to invalids.

Fortunately there are some ! CPDN that can send you tasks lasting several weeks, task can crash for reason external to the user computer itself, who already gave a long CPU time for the project (for this task), so the boinc trickle message system will generate credit during the time of calculation, that are no lost even in case of crash of the task.

I think some other projects go the same - DHEP ?

Could I help somehow ? I have an iMac with latest Mac OS inside, I used to do some dev in the past, with some instruction I could give it a try...

I did crunch one (so far), OK on my late 2009 iMac (latest Mac OS X).

Oh so that was the reason, too bad I only get it now because I was only helping my team during a 2 weeks group action on universe, it is now over and universe is just a memory now : during regular times of the year I only crunch on projects that propose a Mac OS X application.

Anyway thanks for the info, I'll post it on our forum.


PD : thinking about it I think I had installed an x64 version in the VM... ?

I gave up a few days after my last message and ran the project inside a Windows VM, and it worked fine...

The idea of having a linux VM was to minimize virtualisation overhead, but anyway...

Several of my friends at l'AF are getting WUs, including with Debian... What can it be ?

Hi

I setup a VM with Linux Debian with a boinc into it to run some universe (I have a Mac) but I can't get any WU since I did this 2 days ago (WUProp is running fine on that machine and gets WUs).

Do you know why ?
