1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : \'boincmgr\' received an X Window System error (Message 32356)

Yes I\'m running the 71.86 driver on a GeForce2 GTS which is supported.
I think the driver is working fine. There\'s no nvidia in /etc/init.d/.
OpenGL is working, too (glxgears at ~1900 fps and 3D-Games).
Thanks anyway for the comment.

I used to have X Windows shutdown problems on Fedora 7 because the proprietary ATI graphics driver is crap. Upgrading did help, but if I switch from init 5 to init 3, it will not shutdown X. Runlevel 5 or 3 is OK by itself, just not switching between the two. If you have an unstable X system, other processes will have problems. Anyway, I hope you got it figured out. Any more problems, then try an upgrade/reinstall of OS or drivers.

well, I have a very old graphics card and there\'s only one driver which works for me. And I have to install it manually because there\'s no repository for old legacy drivers.
But why did it work before and now doesn\'t?
I don\'t think there are problems when switching between the runlevels on my system.

I just typed \"W\" in the Graph and it turned to the 2D-View.
I have already turned off the screensaver. I only sometimes look at the graph manually to check if everything is ok (ice-world, weird behavior...)

Hopefully the new model works fine (I have already said this a few times before :D )

But why everything works fine except of the shut-down-thing and BOINC-Manager (the boinc-client also works but I don\'t want to run only the command-line BOINC).
I also have the feeling that it all started after I installed Google Desktop. I have to try quitting it before shutting down.
I will try it right now, brb.

OK, it shut down properly, at least it looked like.
But the graphics driver got damaged again and I had to install it again.
During the installation it tells me:
ERROR: File \'usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so\' is not a symbolic link.

it links to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so.71.86.01 which is in the same folder

and then later:
Your driver installation has been altered since it was initially installed...will uninstall as best it can...see \'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log\' for details

Maybe something is wrong with the installed driver but the installer doesn\'t uninstall the bad file



Wow, I just tried to start BOINC-Manager and it works!!!
Maybe the uninstaller worked better this time.



I have just set everything up and it works. The Graphic is working again, too.
But it shows the 3D-Globe although I have selected 2D in the preferences?
And the globe doesn\'t seem to be OpenGL-Rendered (turns very slow, about 1 Frame every 3 secound or 1/3 fps when in fullscreen, 2 fps when small).

I have a problem, again.
BOINC didn\'t work properly on my SUSE-linux and didn\'t show the graphics. After a model-crash I decided to reinstall BOINC.
Before the reinstall I had a problem with linux (and still have), it doesn\'t want to shut down and I have to switch off the computer by force.
Then after 2 such \"shut-downs\" X Window got damaged and I had to install the Graphics-Driver again.
After that BOINC-Manager didn\'t work any more:

The program \'boincmgr\' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was \'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)\'.
  (Details: serial 557 error_code 11 request_code 146 minor_code 5)
...


Now I still can\'t get BOINC-Manager to work. I have already deleted everything from the BOINC-folder and reinstalled it.
BOINC-Manager still shows the same error.

What can I do?

@MikeMarsUK: Thanks for the links, I already know them except of the linux version. I have SUSE 10.3 I can even start memtest at startup: http://bp2.blogger.com/_VN8zHqq8Ns8/ReRkagjSZ5I/AAAAAAAAAD0/4I-5y-gesnc/s1600/103grubcr2.png

But in Win Xp, which I had before, the Computer didn\'t produce so much errors.
I don\'t think something is wrong with the computer. I think I did something wrong with the installation of BOINC.
I don\'t know what I am going to do next...

BTW: The graph of the new model after the crash also doesn\'t show.


One more thing:
BOINC is showing:

Update:
Good news: The hadsm-model works again ->http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=7041767.

Bad news: The other model an hadcm, which was running on linux just crashed ->http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=7117962.

Can someone tell me, why the stderr out message is so long?
I already had the feeling that something is going wrong with the linux-BOINC-model because the graphic didn\'t show and the data looks weird (esp the ocean temp).

Shall I restore the backup from 6 Jan, unfortunatelly that\'s the last backup I made.
Or should I better reinstall BOINC and start a new model (and hope that everything works fine)?

Small Report:
When I restored the backup from 1h before the crash happened the model crashed immediatelly again.
Then I restored the backup from the day before the crash (~2h computing time before crash happened).
It´s running now.
We will see what is going to happen to the model :D
I will report later.

Me again,
http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=7041767

Shall I restore the backup from 30 Dez right before the error happened, or before the model-restart, or shall I restore the backup when the 5th trickle starts (after 28 Dec 2007 15:35:28)?

Mikey


I have the exact same problem. The graphics showed up earlier but then suddenly disappeared for some reason. I\'m new to linux. When I type this in my terminal it tells me:
xhost: bad hostname \"local\"

I think I have to insert my host name in the command line. I tried my computer name:
tir0@tir0s-linux-pc:~> xhost +tir0s-linux-pc
tir0s-linux-pc being added to access control list

But nothing has happened, the graphic still doesn\'t appear.

I have installed the bbc-backup.exe it works perfect.
The reason why the 1600+ has 4 models in the list is because I had some troubles getting BOINC to run. It only has one model running now.
I will reset the bad model and start a HADCM.
Now I know that I have to look after my models.

The HADCM is not in the list anymore, only the HADSM, and I haven´t got any backups. So, it doesn´t metter if I click abort or reset.
Or is it possible to continue the HADCM without having a backup?

Ok not so good news for me.
How can I abort the model so that the credits won´t be deleted?
When I abort the model in the tasks-window it says I won´t get credit for it!
Shall I click \"reset project\" in the projects-window?
Or shall I click \"no new tasks\" and wait until it stops and then \"reset project\"?

Hopefully the new model will be ok.
