Ok, so I haven't received a WU on my windows computer in 7 months. So I converted 2 computers to Linux specifically for CPDN. The project didn't have tasks at first, but now it has tasks. And I'm getting nothing. What gives? No tasks have ever downloaded, so I didn't crash a bunch of WU's with no 32 bit lib. Also other projects are running fine. I feel like I'm in the -1 penalty box. Ubuntu 21.10 on both. I'm new to Linux, so any advice is appreciated. One is a AMD A-8 7600 with 8 gb of ram and the other is a AMD FX8350 with 16gb Ram.

I also cannot get this to run on either device:

sudo apt-get install lib32ncurses6 lib32z1 lib32stdc++-7-dev

It just says "E: Unable to locate package lib32stdc++-7-dev". I got another one to work, but I don't know if it's the same.

Thanks.
Tom

This current batch is Mac only.

******

Message sent by the project coordinator to the mods about batch 926:
OK as the majority of fails for this batch were on Linux, I have deprecated so it only runs on Mac and resending (should be batch 927)

Thanks. That's unfortunate. Any idea when new Linux tasks will be available? I would at least like to know that I have the right libs installed.

No hints at the moment, there was a recent batch on test site of N144 tasks which are Linux only. Most tasks these days are N216 HADAM4 tasks which are Linux only so you are on the best platform for getting work here these days. This is the longest gap in Linux work for a while so hopefully not too much longer.

@Thomas

For Ubuntu 20.10, replace 7 with 8 in the lib32stdc++ package and it should work.

Could somebody please add that one to the list in message 62038?

Done, I remember when it went up from 6 to 7 and I just tried it and found it was the answer. Wouldn't be surprised if by the end of next year it goes up to 9.

Thanks everyone! It was also adding extra spaces when I tried to copy and paste the command from the message. Before I saw this, I looked through the "Main" archive and found ++6. Ran this and it worked:

sudo apt-get install lib32ncurses6 lib32z1 lib32stdc++6

Do I need to rerun it with the ++8-dev files, or should I leave it? As Richard pointed out, it goes up to 11 now, so not sure which is best.

Not sure if the 6 will do it, I would run the 8 command as well. I just installed 20.10 in a VM last evening to test it out, and the 6 didn't resolve all the dependencies for the cpdn models, but the 8 did.

I still do not get any new work for my Linux machine. Is this me or my installation or do you guys have the same issue?

Thanks

This is because the only tasks on the servers at the moment are for OSX aka Mac computers. There is a thread here explaining how to set up a virtual machine to run these under Linux but I haven't got it to work yet.

Edit either the thread below or above this one depending on your settings.

Under the drop down menu in the computing link near the top of this page, click on applications. It must have been updated recently because is shows the hadcm3s as only being for Mac whereas they used to be for Linux as well.

We don't have any real clue as to when the Open IFS will make it to the main site from testing and I would imagine there will be some posts about that before it happens.
