1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : *** Running 32bit CPDN from 64bit Linux - Discussion *** (Message 61468)
Posted 5 Nov 2019 by ToKamaK
To install 32 bits libraries on recent Debian versions, you will need to add the i386 architecture to Apt, using the multiarch mechanism:
$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

Validate it is properly taken in account:
$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures

Update your Apt packages knowledge base:
$ sudo apt update

And then you can install all the libraries you want in 32 bits thanks to multiarchitecture mode. Assuming the listing on top of the forum thread is still accurate, the Debian Buster equivalent would be:
$ sudo apt install zlib1g:i386 libncurses5:i386 libbz2-1.0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 -y

I have this in place on my Debian Sid, but it works on Debian 10 too. I guess multiarchitecture handling should not have changed too much since Wheezy, so I guess it roughly the same procedure for Debian 9.

I hope this helps
2) Questions and Answers : Getting started : Task loss notification (Message 59660)

Good Day,

Thank you for your answer, I get that there isn't much harm done then.

Also, many thanks for the pointer about caring for cpdn tasks, I am running other BOINC projects for quite some time, and the trick about not interrupting jobs is not exactly obvious. I will modify my BOINC configuration accordingly.

Kind Regards
3) Questions and Answers : Getting started : Task loss notification (Message 59656)
Posted 20 Feb 2019 by ToKamaK
Good Day,

I wished to notify one way or another, about the loss of the job #21490082 (work unit #11730305), following a disk crash.

No much problem on my side, thanks to good'ole backup policies; but the I see the deadline set to next year, and wanted to avoid to the submitter of the task to wait a whole year before seing the job being rescheduled.

Is there a proper, practical way to send such notification?
Or is such loss of jobs much of a concern regarding the compute infrastructure?

With my apologies if any delay has been induced,
Kind Regards,
