I have 2 projects both with a value of 100 (50%). But the SETI@Home project grabs most of the time leaving the climateprediction.net project most time idle. I have a dual core CPU with BOINC general preferences using both cores for 100%.

I\'m running BOINC on Ubuntu Linux 6.10 (64 Bit; 2 GB RAM) and also upgrading to the latest BOINC 5.8.17 didn\'t help.

Perhaps this will help your understanding.
Assuming that you\'ve set your prefs to use 2 processors.

This Earliest Deadline First sounds bad as it seems that one project with smaller work units grab all CPU power from other projects. How can I change this? I would like to split both projects on both CPUs just like my setting says (2 times 50%). ?

Resource share is a long term thing, months not days.
If you run multiple projects, then you need to be patient.

I run both Seti and CPDN with a (until recently) dual CPU system. I had to set my resource share seti=50 and CPDN=150 and selected \"no new tasks\" for CPDN. It will almost always run the CPDN wu on 1 cpu and seti wu will share the other CPU.
