I know some of you were eagerly awaiting this. Well, the time has come - we now have 64bit Linux gcwsieve application.

I'll start with a disclaimer: I know next to nothing about Linux application building, so this version will probably crash and behave not nicely under older Linux versions. This one is built under 64bit Ubuntu 7.10 and runs fine under so called "For most current Linux/x64 versions" version of BOINC. Chances are that for "older Linux versions" like Debian 4.0 you won't even launch 64bit BOINC...

So, if I see that the app runs correctly, I'll build and release 64bit PSP sieve application this week; if not, we'll try to fix issues with gcwsieve app first.

[edit] Actually, I managed to make it work on older Linux versions, too. I released version 1.08.

Finished my first WU.
Wating for the credit.

As this is a debian system the setup is quite similar to the unbuntu one.
No wonder it works...

Note: 64 bit gcwsieve version is ~2X as efficient as 32 bit version; therefore, ~2X the credit! :)

If more than 46 sieve workunits are requested during 5 second interval, the server will respond that it has no work for the application; BOINC server by default keeps 200 tasks in memory and refills the list every 5 seconds. Those 200 tasks are separated into sections for different apps, and gcwsieve gets 46 slots. It seems I will have to recompile server software and increase the limit, maybe to something like 500 tasks. I will do that during the weekend, when I have more free time to fix issues :)

As I said, it's an intermittent problem, which will be resolved during the weekend.

It seems that your BOINC forgets host IDs and/or communication sequence numbers. What is the version of the client? Maybe there are file permission problems saving state files?

I actually managed to change the setting without recompiling the code (turns out documentation was incorrect), so now you should be more lucky in getting work - let me know if it still didn't help.

I've ticked PrimeGrid over on boincstats.com/bam, and while my other projects show 'attached' this one shows 'attaching' for ~24 h. Is PG just low on work units for 64-bit platforms? I noticed some sub-projects can't use this architecture... Or is PG partially incompatible with BAM, as Einstein@home seems to be? Thanks.

Your PC only connects to BAM! every 48 hours (by default).

I've just crunched some GCWsieve WUs under Fedora 7 x86_64. No problems and about 5:28 minutes per WU on C2D E6600 @ 2,6 GHz. :)

A teammate of mine can confirm that the application also works under openSuse 10.3.

There have been no issues with the release of the 64 bit Linux gcwsieve application. Therefore, the 64 bit Linux sr2sieve application has been released for the Prime Sierpinski Problem sieve.

The 64 bit sr2sieve version is ~1.5X as efficient as 32 bit version; therefore, ~1.5X the credit! :)

NOTE: To users running Linux and a CPU, MB, and BIOS that support Speedstep, we have observed a ~25% iincrease in speed when the CPU EIST Function is disabled.

CPU EIST Function (Note)
Enables or disables Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST). Depending on CPU loading, IntelĀ® EIST technology can dynamically and effectively lower the CPU voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and heat production. (Default: Enabled)

When running sr2sieve, our test quad 2.4GHz went from 8:55 minutes per WU to 6:29 minutes when this feature was disabled. With it enabled, the multiplier would drop from 9*266 to 6*266.

WARNING: Do NOT disable the CPU Thermal Monitor

CPU Thermal Monitor 2 (TM2) (Note)
Enables or disables IntelĀ® CPU Thermal Monitor (TM2) function, a CPU overheating protection function. When enabled, the CPU core frequency and voltage will be reduced when the CPU is overheated. (Default: Enabled)

I tested the new app, too. (again Fedora 7 x86_64)

No problems and exactly the same speed as the Win64-App. Well done! :)

It would be great if an application is available for tps with speedup.

I have an alternative platform computer, powerpc64. Is it possible to get the source for build for it? I'm running a 64-bit Linux kernel (we're the department for redundancy department).

Your best hope is to participate in one of the PRPNet projects using phrot. I have PPC and that's what I do.
