    Since I need Prima/wuprop hours anyway I'll add some cores to the fight, but not until the Wow Event is finished.

    If they're still using the same app that "runs" on a PS3, anyone with a linux PPC64 can compile BOINC with ps3-linux as an alternate. The tasks run but fail quickly and then you still get credit. My IBM RS/6000 would get about 33k a day.

    So, anyone with one of the older macs can run linux and get a lot of credit.

    It is cool to see the response from some of the original SUSA crew. Shame primaB doesn't have badges.

    This happened to a different box yesterday. After a few hours of no work, I moved that box to a different project. I'm moving this box over also. Pretty soon there will not be any boxes on prima.

    Edit: deleted the two client_state files in the BOINC folder, then reinstalled/repaired BOINC. Work flow resumed.

    I am getting work just fine?

    BTW. This is a CPU only project. No need to try GPU work...

    The prima preferences don't even mention GPUs, so I don't understand why the box would be asking for them. Is there some other setting I should adjust?

    None that I can think off.

    You probably already have those under control - like: "run always"...

    I has been reported that Prima downloads a shitload of WU almost instantly after attaching - so maybe try detach/attach?
