Hi,

Pressing the Show graphics buttons twice will kill the running CPDN modell.
On first press the graphics window is up for a split second, pressing the button once more and the hodel dies.

This is on FC4 with on a AMD dual core system.

Sat 22 Apr 2006 09:41:03 AM CEST|climateprediction.net|Computation for result hadcm3lbm_918x_05190788_0 finished

Is this a known problem?

An update to my observations:

The CPDN programs reported dead is still running on my machine.
Both the two that Boincmgr reported dead and my current run.

Stopping boinc does not stop these two processes and they have to be killed at OS level and they leave behind a lot of files on disk.

What a mess.

Try a re-boot.

There are SUPPOSED to be a lot of files on the disk. That\'s where it\'s creating the 3D model of the Earth\'s atmosphere.

Well that is ok, but I assume 300 MB of files from a model that just had been running for an hour is of limited value for anybody.

But this does not answer my original question. Why does the CPDN process die with a signal 11 when I press the Show graphics button in Boincmgr. This has worked before.

Yep, this happened to me too, mine both 5.08 models on an X2 were instantly killed with signal 11 when pressing the Graphics button. And the process kept running in the background after that.
It was OK with 5.07.
This also happened with a Seasonal WU, hadam3_4.07 client.

Interesting that both are on FC4. Two of my P4 machines currently run Seasonal under SuSE 10.0 with no issues. Had an A64 X2 4400+, also in SuSE 10.0, also crunching a pair of Seasonal Runs without Graphics issues. (Can/t comment on TCM because I run them in WinXP -- picking the fastest OS for each project.)

\'Broadcast\' question: Anyone else have CPDN/boinc Graphics issues in FC4 with TCM? In other Linux implementations?
