I\'m trying to run the BOINC version of CPDN, and my results page now shows three results, all with \"client error\" and less than a second of CPU time. I\'ve attached the stderr from one of the results pages, which features error -161, but I don\'t know what that means.

Here are a few factoids about this machine that might be relevant. It\'s a relatively slow machine, a 380 MHz K6-3D. The client I seem to have is sulphur 4.22. I also have the Einstein and LHC projects attached; they seem to be doing fine. My libc version is 2.3.2.

I\'m sure that\'s not enough to go on, but perhaps it someone could clue me in what error -161 is, I could find out more.

stderr:

<core_client_version>5.2.13</core_client_version>
<stderr_txt>

</stderr_txt>

OK, the BB ate the xml from stderr. Don\'t know how to fix that, but you get the idea.

To deal with the display problem, you need to use e.g. WinWord to do a replace on the less than/greater than symbols. Use square brackets instead.

The 161 error is a red herring. It just means something like \"the error files BOINC is trying to upload don\'t exist, or are empty\".
The REAL error message is missing. This seems to be a recent \"problem\", and I don\'t know why it is happening, just that it is. A LOT!

If you look in the file yabsd.out, which is in the dataout folder of your model, there should be an error message, or description, at the bottom of the file. THIS will tell you, (or us), what REALLY happened.

The usual causes of failures are overheating, (caused by lack of air flow in the case, and/or dust on the heatsink), overclocking, (the processor just can\'t handle the intense, continuous, calcs at that speed), an agressive AV program which locks files trying to do a write, just so it can check them, (Avast, Antivir), and, I feel, a bare minimum power supply, which is letting the voltages sag under load.

Doubtful that a 380 MHz K6 will run any CPDN (Classic/Slab/Sulphur Cycle) Work Unit. Recommended minimum for Sulphur Cycle (all that is available under boinc at the moment) is 1GHz with at least 256k memory but 512 is better. With a minimum machine, the Work Unit would run full-time for months.

Thanks for giving us a try, Dave, and hope to see you back sometime.

I also experience the same kind of problem and don\'t see anything that looks like an error message at the bottom of the yabsd.out file, last lines are in one example:
O_LEN_D1 = 0,
W_LEN2_LOOKUP = 0,
W_LEN_DATA = 1,
W_LEN_D1 = 0,
(1372 lines in those files)
I got this problem with sulphur 4.22 and now 4.23. Where should I look to diagnose the problem?

I also have client error status on the two returned units. Dell Inspiron 8600, FC4 with BOINC 5.2.13. The current temp is 40deg, not overclocked and Linux doesnt have viruses :). The yabsd.out files dont seem to help, ie:

All sulphur 4.23 models will crash on Linux about half way through phase 1, per the sticky at the top of this forum. Hopefully your PC will download a new coupled model (hadcm3l) which has proven to be more stable in Linux.
