Beta Testing / Re: B.T. 1.75

That rule was created automatically and it appears to match the name of the variable that was coded in the program.  ie: appliation (sic) is correct as it seems to work.

Questions / Re: Editing app_config and cc_config fails on Win10
« Last post by fred on March 27, 2018, 02:38:11 am »
The Boinc client overwrites the config files and returns a zero file when it fails.
That's a serious flaw in the client nothing I can do, as BoincTasks uses the BOINC client to send the new file.

I know there were a couple of errors in the BOINC client that causes the app app_config.xml to fail.
Was unable to test the end result as I was waiting for the changes to run true the system.

It will be at least a month before I can look into this.

The installer doesn't like to install over a new version.
Normally you have to use the Windows way to remove the program in the control panel.

To revert to the old version delete this folder
C:\Program Files\eFMer\BoincTasks\lang

Delete boinctasks64.exe
Now install again.

Questions / Editing app_config and cc_config fails on Win10
« Last post by Jimbocous on March 16, 2018, 06:59:43 pm »
[posted this a couple months ago at 1/75 beta but no response so reposting]
Just loaded 1.75, and decided to test the new ability of editing app_config.xml.
Setup here is as follows:
1) Core2 Q9650, Win10ProX64, BT 1.75, BOINC 7.8.3, Projects: SETI, Einstein
2) Xeon E5450, Win7ProX64,                   BOINC 7.8.3, Projects: SETI, Einstein
3) Xeon X5675, Win10ProX64,                 BOINC 7.8.3, Projects: SETI, SETI Beta, Einstein
4) Xeon X5675, Win10ProX64,                 BOINC 7.8.3, Projects: SETI, SETI Beta, Einstein
Installation file paths are standard for BOINC and BT on all machines.

From machine 1) under Projects tab was able to load and read app_config for Einstein and SETI Beta on all machines (SETI uses app_info on all).
However, after making a change to Einstein on all 4 machines and to Beta on the two machines running it:
 Syntax Check passes,
 Apply passes,
 A subsequent attempt to load app_config yields an "Invalid" window message in each case.

Further checking shows that each app_config is now file size 0 and all data has been lost.

Stupid me, of course, for not having made backups before testing a new feature, and for not having validated everything on 1 machine before moving on to the other three.
But I thought I would mention this for anyone else testing, to see if there's something else I did to screw this up or info I can provide to help find a resolution.
If I might also suggest, perhaps it would be good to have BT make a .BAK backup file of app/cc_config XML files before making changes to them, if that is possible.
Feel free to let me know how I might help! Thanks!

[edit 1]
It seems app_config editor is failing syntax check on <gpu_versions> statement. 
CC_Config editor is failing syntax check on <cc_config> tag.
Falling back to 1.73.

[edit 2]
Unable to fall back to version 1.66 or 1.73, as running installer gives error:
Open file:C:\Program Files\eFMer\BoincTasks\lang\BoincTasks_ENU.btlang
Group: <GroupMenuMain> string header in pos 225, <ExtraEditAppInfo> not found
Group: <GroupDialogRules> string header in pos 951, <EventSuspendNetwork> not found
Group: <GroupDialogRules> string header in pos 952, <EventResumeNetwork> not found

Questions / Re: "Processor features" are truncated in Ubuntu 16.04.3

No problem at all.  I now know where to look for the values, it just threw me for a loop when I first ran into it.  You will save some people problems though by fixing it.  Thanks.

I put it on my todo list, but that may take a while.

You say the problem is only with the Linux machines, so my guess is still that this is a BOINC client issue.

Here is the discussion on the BOINC forum where the experts there thought it was a problem with BoincTasks. 
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=12255

I have confirmed that the relevant BOINC files include the missing flags, and apparently they get transmitted to the BOINC project servers.  It is just a question of where they get dropped going to the Messages tab.  I can't say beyond that.

Questions / Re: ATI detection problem observation and fix
« Last post by fred on February 20, 2018, 12:06:13 am »
After editing TThrottle.xml to get the order of my pair of HD-7950s temperatures to correspond, I decided to swap cards in respective pcie slots.  Unaccountably, I lost the temperatures for one of the cards.  The outer card was having its temperature reported for the card closet to the CPU.  The card closest was not being reported at all.  On a hunch, I pulled the HDMI dongle (dummy load) off the outer card and put it on the inner one and that fixed the problem after a reboot.  That is probably the problem I have on another ATI system that is not connected to any monitor.  I need to put an HDMI load on the "primary" card to force the driver to set an order. I am just guessing but clearly having a monitor or dummy load connected to an ATI card makes a difference in how the temperature is reported.  I have not seen this on nVidia cards on some of my headless systems with no dummy load or monitor.
Thanks for reporting, that makes sense the card not reporting it's temperature when it's not in use.
The card may go into sleep mode.

That points to a problem with the Linux Boinc client, that's often much older than the Windows version.

I am running BOINC 7.8.3 on both my Windows and Ubuntu machines (except 7.6.31 and 7.8.4 on one Ubuntu machine each).  But 7.8.3 is in the Ubuntu (i.e., Debian) repository now.
You say the problem is only with the Linux machines, so my guess is still that this is a BOINC client issue.

Questions / Re: Selecting BOINC website gets redirected to ScienceUnited

[EDIT]  After I asked about this at the boinc Q&A forum they fixed the redirect.  It now goes where it always went.  Hopefully they wont change it again.
Yep it's the BOINC client were  BoincTasks gets the info.
