1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Can\'t find host record Invalid or missing account key (Message 27730)

Sounds like you\'ve got a corrupt or missing account file Tim.

In your BOINC directory you should find the files account_climateprediction.net.xml and sched_request_climateprediction.net.xml and they should normally have the same value for the <authenticator> tag.

If that\'s the problem the only way to sort it out would be to restore the account file from backup (or copy it from another system connected to your account).


Excellent advice. Thanks.

It was the sched_request_climateprediction.net.xml file, which had picked up the wrong hostid.

Cheers

I\'ve got a work unit that\'s nearing completion (2076).
However, I\'m concerned that it will not be able to send its results to the server, because whenever it tries I get the following messages. It then carries on regardless.

Any suggestions? Should I change anything? Or sit back and hope for the best?

3) Questions and Answers : Windows : CPDN doesn\'t play nicely with Real Player (Message 17347)

real alternative instead


Thanks - that works - much cleaner than RealPlayer - I never really like that, especially when it wasted weeks of work. And their technical support was almost non-existent.Took me ages to find the culprit, though.

So, thanks for your help

Cheers

Whenever I start listening to streaming audio with RealPlayer, my model crashes. It does this for sulphur_cycle 4.19 and BOINC client 4.45, generating the following error:

climateprediction.net 24/10/2005 23:18:10 Unrecoverable error for result 30e8_100162369_1 ( - exit code -5 (0xfffffffb))

Starting RealPlayer also causes Prime95 to crash, so I realise it is not specifically a problem with CPDN, but hoped someone here may be able to help.

Other applications (including MS Media player) run fine, as does Prime95 the rest of the time.

Cheers

5) Questions and Answers : Windows : why is it so hard to run it? (Message 16313)

i changed the disk space now to 1 GB. so what can i do to not run a sulphur cycle? why didn´t it run with the best preferences for my pc all alone? is it normal that it now uses 193,12 MB of my 80 GB disk-space?
thanks and bye, soho


I changed mine to Disk and memory usage to \"Use no more than 0.9 GB disk space\", forced an update from the BOINC client, then crashed the model. (Easy - just start RealPlayer!).

When it re-started, it downloaded a non-sulphur model (just after midnight, as I\'d already used up my quote of model crashes for the day).

Cheers,

Tim

Hi,

I\'ve also got this problem. The sulphur model on my WinXP box always crashes when I start listening to streaming audio using the RealPlayer plugin for Firefox.

This didn\'t seem to happen before I switched to the sulphur cycle, so I\'m trying to switch back following soho\'s suggestions. I\'ll keep you posted.

A couple of recent examples for you:

I have a similar problem with one machine behind a firewall.
Can you reach http://climateprediction.net from a web browser?
Does it respond to pings?

I had a similar problem:

climateprediction.net - 2004-08-06 00:19:20 - Message from server: No work available (there was work but you don't have enough disk space allocated)

I went into change my preference on the website (took me ages to find that). Although I had the default allocation of 200GB, its default was not to do work while the computer was in use. I unchecked this, an told the project to 'Update' in the BOINC project window. Now it's busy downloading a new model.
