Agreed. A big thank you is certainly in order. I feel guilty now for having even started this thread :| Being fairly new to all this, I wasn't sure if I had gotten everything on my end setup correctly or not. So, ya, my apologies. And Thank You for an awesome project. Glad to be a part of it!

Do enlighten me....

Lol. The rat pack has lots of them(or at least I do). But rebirther is correct; they are very slow :( I was just hoping to get lucky and find a good use for them other than attracting dust.

Rebirther,

I fear to speculate how difficult it would be to set up a sieving effort via boinc, but ... there's been a TON of computing power added just within the last 3 days to this project .... but,

I think it a worthy endeavor to start eliminating bases outright... and hence my question as to what is being done on the bases with 5k's or less in regards to sieving since N is getting larger and tests are taking longer??

If BOINC sieving isn't feasible at this time, I am familiar with SRsieve and can do some manual sieving; I have a couple of i5 cores to donate...

Rebirther -

I have no clue what Neo just said... but as his teammate, I'm sure it was good ;) I can pitch in a couple of cores to help out...

Is it just me, or is there currently no work available? None of my systems are able to get more work right now. Checking on the server status I see everything is online, but no more work ready to be sent... I am reading that correctly? Could be that I have no clue what I'm talking about :)

Mmmmm, pie, delicious... Oh wait, wrong kind of pie :)

I was wondering if there is any support for the Raspberry Pi ARM processors. I have a whole army of RPi's with nothing to do. Seems to me that many of these shorter work units would be very well suited to these small processors.

I understand that many projects do not support RPi's, often because the work units are just too much to handle. Maybe it is worth considering for this one?? There are millions of RPi's out there and I'm sure that many of them could end up crunching if only projects supported them and had small enough work units where it didn't take half a lifetime to complete.

Food for thought

Ok, good news! I got it working. Not sure exactly what I did - or if I actually did anything at all - but I'm not complaining.

Thanks for the support... lets find some primes! :)

to update (get tasks) the project you have to use:
./boinccmd --project http://srbase.myfirewall.org/sr5/ update
(in the BOINC folder with the executables)

the --get_tasks command lists all tasks of all projects but don't update the project ;-)



Right. I did update first. A few times for good measure :) Then did --get_tasks to see if anything came through.

Yes, it does show that I am attached to the project

I am having a similar issue using linux command line...

I can successfully add the project, but it never gets any work. I have tried
boinccmd --project http://srbase.myfirewall.org/sr5/ update
several times but when i run
boinccmd --get_tasks
it is empty.

I'm not the most experience at using boinc in linux command line, but have not had issues running other projects in the same way... any ideas??

Thanks,
Derek

I agree with the others... I would prefer to have things reported in my own name. This is really the only way for us to get any credits for our efforts. Additionally, I agree with Conan and Vaughan that is would be awesome if reporting worked similar as over at PrimeGrid :)
