Message 63800 - Posted: 5 Apr 2021, 13:22:44 UTC - in response to Message 63799.  

just guessing, but it may mean that the climate program tried to write in a location that either hadn't been created / was in an incorrect location, or that the directory didn't have write permissions.


Though if simply a lack of write permissions, once tracked down it should be a fairly simple fix which would allow many, "Starving" windows users to get some work as well as getting tasks returned in a more timely manner. If I had a Windows machine, I could do some serious work trying to track down the source of the problem but ....

For what it is worth the error message looks like it probably a python error message so even if the problem only occurs with CPDN it is a BOINC instruction that is causing things to fall over.

I think you are right! There has to be some hard link, that does not exist as an example in ODLK1. As you can see in this link: ODLK1, the comuter should be visibal at the moment.

Yes, this should be the motivation! Unfortunately, I have very limited computer knowledge, but maybe someone from the BOINC community chips in.

Two thoughts from searching the BOINC fora.
1: If a permissions issue adding the user to the boinc group is worth trying in a terminal.
sudo usermod -a -G boinc username


2. It may be a problem with the port that BOINC uses to communicate between the manager and the client being used by Windows to communicate with VB

The latter would require starting client and manager separately specifying the port to use which I should know how to do but can't remember off hand at the moment.

Did this! Now we have to wait until the ODLK1 work is cleared out. climateprediction.net resists to download a new WU.

We already have to open a second ubuntu window to comunicate with boinc and all communication is with command line (boinccmd).

Possible the same thing could apply. boinccmd by default uses the same port to communicate with the client as manager does but I am guessing at things that are a fair bit out of my depth here.

So far have had 4 completed tasks and 4 compute errors with my VB setup. This is running Ubuntu 20.4 and the virtual disk is set up in its own partition on the HDD so is effectively all in the root directory (I think) Unfortunately my LINUX exprience is limited so cannot really comment on other theories. One good thing is it uses the GUI rather than command line.

And your failures are all after running long enough to send at least one zip so not the same problem as the process creation thread error.

Edit:But good to see that you are having some success with it. One difference I notice is that your computer page doesn't tell me you are running VB whereas those with the process creation error did. I am now wondering if those aren't windows computers running BOINC via VB but native Linux ones and running something else in Windows via VB is the problem with them in which case, the ports clashing theory for those computers becomes more likely?

Message 63808 - Posted: 6 Apr 2021, 22:41:59 UTC - in response to Message 63807.  

I am fairly certain that some of the failures were due to having to do a hard reset on the computer thereby crashing LINUX. I will add that this was after a Win10 update which then caused VB problems (whole process freezing). The same update has also caused a freeze when running LINUX in VMware (I have both installed on the same PC but only run one virtual machine at a time). Am currently plodding through some tasks on the VMware system (2 N216, 3 N144 and 5 HADCM3S).

I got some new WUs during the night. Unfortunately, all errored.
I get the following massage in the WSL window: Please note there is this new error: Checksum or signature error . By the way I did install the 32 bit lib.

I got some new WUs during the night. Unfortunately, all errored.


Sarah at the project has noticed quite a lot of process creation errors on the HADSM4 batch 899. She is interested in the fact that a lot of the computers producing them seem to have virtualisation. Whether this produces any new ideas or not remains to be seen but it can't be a bad thing to see if those in Oxford have any ideas.

All those lines of text at the start of your post are meaningless.

They're just BOINC saying that it can't find the output zip files to send back to the project.
Which is obvious, because the models all crashed before they had a chance to create anything.

The part which is useful, is the one that contains:
WU download error: couldn't get input files:

And I've no idea what it means.

******************

Also, it's not a trivial matter to assemble all of the many data files, check that they're the correct ones, then bundle them up for the download server.
So please, if you're going to continue with testing, could you only run one task at a time.

This is really great news! I hope they will find a solution.

I completely agree! That is why I put emphasis in red in my text to the parts which might be more interesting!
Also, it's not a trivial matter to assemble all of the many data files, check that they're the correct ones, then bundle them up for the download server.

I do not know how to bundle up the files.

Never mind, there is a slim possibility to continuo, especially, if I get called out! Unfortunately, I am not sitting behind my computer 24 hours to see, if a particular WU is downloaded or not!
As many here, I just like to help with my very limited knowledge, so those 15,000 Linux WUs will get processed in a meaning full time – which might be the case if we get WSL or VM to work properly.
(I even considered to buy some computer parts to assemble another Linux computer to help – but…)

The number of models run at a time, is an option in your Account page, about how many processors the computer has.

The problem with these models is NOT the models, it's the convoluted way some people are trying to run them.

So, what are you doing to try and fix the problem with your computer?

If you're just going to let the models keep crashing until something changes, then I may have to have your computer banned as being a Serial Killer.

Sure, I limited the WSL account to just one WU with app-config… but they came all at night.

I agree, they do run on my Lubuntu boxes without any problems. But they seem not to run on WSL at the moment.

I am not sure, I might try to reinstall WSL. However; I think the problem is more, how this particular WUs react to the unusual location of the climateprediction.net files, as they are all over the place.

No worry! As I wrote before, I was just trying to bring more Linux firepower online, but if not needed, my Windows BOINC installation works perfect!

We already have to open a second ubuntu window to comunicate with boinc and all communication is with command line (boinccmd).

Possible the same thing could apply. boinccmd by default uses the same port to communicate with the client as manager does but I am guessing at things that are a fair bit out of my depth here.


Have you tried starting boinc with --daemon so that it's not tied to that terminal window? I have this in my terminal startup cmd for my 2nd GPU client instance.
sudo /usr/bin/boinc --daemon --allow_multiple_clients --gui_rpc_port 31422 --dir /var/lib/boinc2

--daemon
Linux: detach from controlling terminal; Windows: run as service.

I'm not sure if you've already posted this, but which version are you running:
1. Windows 10 WS, or
2. Windows 10 WSL 2.

It seems that the original version wasn't using Linux, just some bodged up files to pretend to be Linux.
The second version is supposed to be a real Linux version.

So you may have to use the second version to have any chance of it working.

I thought, I had installed WSL2, but I am not quite sure anymore... therefore I will try to install it by the step by step guide from BOINC Italy in a couple of weeks. To make sure, this is not the reason for my problems.

Good luck! A shame it isn't as easy as doing it the other way around and running Windows tasks under Linux. (I still haven't worked out why the manager crashes if I try and run the 64 bit version instead of the 32bit one doing so though.)

It looks like Microsoft is making it easier to run Linux GUI apps from Windows. Only on "insider" builds now, but hopefully coming in a Windows update sometime this year.

GOOD!!! I have been wanting to try Linux under Win10 WSL, but, the things that has stopped me is not being able to control it with a GUI. I’m not much for trying to use the command line.
