I've downloaded the latest version of the Boinc-client and startd it. After entering project-url and account-id I'am getting lots of errors like this (system: P4, Suse 9.2):

Error code 251 in linux usually means an unstable model, i.e. somewhere in the grid a temperature went below absolute zero. If you are getting these repeatedly, it usually means that a hardware error either in the processor or memory. I suggest running the stability tests talked about in <a href="http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/forum_thread.php?id=2024">this thread</a>. If it is dual boot, you can run super-pi in Windows. Otherwise, memtest86+ is a bootable diskette, and Prime95 should have a client for Linux. Run Prime95 and memtest86 for several hours to test stability.

I don't think there are problems with the computer. Before I run Gimps (mprime) for some month without any problems, totay I want to change to cpdn. currently I'am back to gimps.

CPDN is much more taxing than just about any other DC project, especially on the memory. Some people who have run Seti or Folding for a long time still have problems with CPDN and find out they have memory errors if they run memtest long enough.

Now the Client is runnung. Yesterday I let it on (parallel to mprime) and today, where I'am back from work, the client is running. It is now at 25/03/1811 and 03/04/1811 (seems, there are two instances running).

Hi, Jurgen,

(Sorry about the missing diacritical mark; "English" keyboard, y'know...)

This is presumably about your 2.8GHz P4, HostID #124896. It is, indeed running two Models.

Your Account has a parameter to control this feature and it defaults to "2".

If that is not what you want, go to "Your account" (menu on left of this page) --&gt; "View or Edit Preferences" --&gt; "On multi-processors use at most..." and set your preference.

Hope that helps.
