Message 20853 - Posted: 28 Feb 2006, 18:22:33 UTC - in response to Message 20851.  


In order for others who are very persistent to be able to do this, they would need access to the 4.21 executables, zip files, and the associated changes in the snippets of code in the xml files. I know Honza wrote something on upgrading here so I imagine one can attempt to follow that (with appropriate changes) to downgrade, but the files are needed (downloadable) and the file signatures.


Certainly. Do you know where I can upload the files?

Written in anger: BBCode tags suck!

Anyway, I have an HTML page with the downgrade instructions and the XML changes to the client_state.xml file listed above.

Thanks. Worked great. There were some complications because I had both 4.22 and 4.23 entries in my client_state file, but I figured it out. Running much faster than the 4.22 executables that were crunching before.

Glad it worked for you! I also have a host with 4.22, and I left it at that as it was crunching through phase 3 already.

I have tried the method you descibed, but each time CPDN downloads new workunit it switches back to 4.23 ?? What am I missing ??

Please help.

Message 20956 - Posted: 2 Mar 2006, 5:29:57 UTC - in response to Message 20953.  

I was overwriting the 4.23 sections rather than adding in new 4.21 sections in client_state.xml. I have got it running, thanks for reply.

But now the gui is not updating cpu time and progress. The client app is running and showing no errors, but I have noticed that when boinc cycles to another app and suspends cpdn, it rewinds to beginning of last saved (archived boinc copy)timestep when staring cpdn again, as if not doing data dumps and checkpoints??

hlp appreciated

sorry Geophi, my last post was incorrect, the checkpoints and timestaps are working correctly, just gui not updating. I use a windows 2K box for monitoring other boxes running boinc, and the CPU time, progress and to completion tabs are not updating ??

Message 20970 - Posted: 2 Mar 2006, 12:48:18 UTC - in response to Message 20957.  

to add to this...

it seems that 4.21 has problem running on redhat 8.0 gcc v3.22, as I get sulphur-4.21__um zombie on start of process and wu gets stuck starting up model. I have tried using sulphur-4.23_um and the wu runs (so far 15 hours). But this stops the gui updating (I think this is client_state.xml not being udpated periodically ?)

Is there a problem with the libraries with 4.21 and RH8.0 ?

I just wish I could get some wu done on linux with sulphur !!!! 8((

regards

Steve R

Message 21053 - Posted: 4 Mar 2006, 17:58:11 UTC - in response to Message 20970.  

(I was away on travel and I did not read the posts above until now)

I believe the problem with the GUI not updating might be related to the warning messages 4.21 produces upon startup when trying to set pointers to the shared memory segment it allocates. At first, I thought the only side effect would be lack of graphics, but I think the GUI also uses this memory segment to interchange information with the boinc client. As I do not use the GUI much because I find is faster editing the client_state.xml file, I had not realized of this problem.

On the other hand, my experience is that the client seems to be crunching workunits fine on Red Hat Linux (so Fedora should be all right too), and MEPIS. I have no direct experience with other distributions of Linux besides Knoppix, which seems to be all right too. However, what I have noticed odd behaviours of other CPDN applications in the past. For example, the hadcm3 spinup application produces a lot of zombi processes when running on Fedora, something that does not happen on other Linux distributions.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.

What exactly does this mean? Is it ok to run climate on linux once again? Is there official word? Was there any official notice that the linux client was hosed other than having to rummage through the forums?

I am not sure. I re-enabled climateprediction downloads, and it downloaded me three homework assignments. Two were hadsm3lb 5.08 (these may be good ones) and one sulfur_cycle 4.23 (that I think is a bad one).

It\'s the new HadCM3L Coupled Model Experiment and it popped up in the Applications tab on Monday.
Been running fine on my Fedora boxen for a couple of weeks as a beta and in the BBC project.

I\'m just wondering, is this

2006-04-22 23:23:00 [climateprediction.net] Unrecoverable error for result sulphur_ilto_000868092_0 (process got signal 11)

peculiar behavior also caused by the unstable version 4.23? I\'ve never had a full run due to a) memory problmems and b) trying to debug in wine whilst CPDN was running, but with this one I\'ve gotten farther than before. This one never rewound though, just out of the blue a signal 11, bam!
