Hi,

nope not realy; the WUs in question were mapped to an OS+CPU combo that was rare and visited this project only once => no new WUs until these were done (or reset manually or because of dead lines not met) => no other WUs validated. Scheduler was running as intended, so was validator.

How to avoid this in future?

Now because we cannot remove homogeneous redundancy and we have no more access to build environment for Apple Mac Intel (to build and to test), we decided to stop supporting that platform in future. This means less manual interventions needed when a rare OS+CPU combo is encountered. The Apple platform show the highest faile rate here in this project (due to graphical library dependancies and changes to OSX) and the fewest hosts.

From 24-06-2015 till 03-07-2015 not a single WU got validated (so validator down) and nobody received new work (so scheduler off), according to BOINCStats. FreeDC has these dates as from 23-06-2015 till 02-07-2015 due to different cut-off moments. As this unfortunate event took place before, during and after a challenge, you missed out on a great many of volunteers who could have help achieving the desired homogeneous redundancy long before it took place now.[/quote]

Server was running fine; short: scheduling was in FIFO mode because of WU deadlines approaching and the need for homogeneous redundancy.

Hi,

the requirements of the Leiden Classical app have not changed. What has changed is the default location where Apple puts the correct libGLU.1.dylib library. It used to be under /usr/X11R6, but now it is under /opt/X11.

So the simple solution is to try this:

ln -s /opt/X11 /usr/X11R6

All my WUs are still failing with the same error though I do have this library :

/opt/X11/lib/libGLU.1.dylib

Why this ? what can be done ?




/opt/X11/lib/libGLU.1.dylib is not /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.1.dylib

Hi,

the clue is :

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.1.dylib


Please look at http://boinc.gorlaeus.net/Graphical_libs.php

Hi,

this was due to network related issues (a local firewall of the IT dep failed on us on the 5th and 6th of august).

I'm sorry to read that deadlines are a nuisance to you. Perhaps BOINC is not the best way of volunteering your extra cycles?

As a project admin, I think a 4 day dead-line for an 8h job is more that fair as a longer dead line will result in a higher load on the server and scheduler. That in turn will result in not being able to hand out work swiftly again.
