Message 141813 - Posted: 19 Jul 2020 | 1:49:38 UTC

Hello, I'm new to this project.
I just recently installed BoinC, and currently, my computer has completed around 16 tasks for the 321 Sieve subproject.
However, I was wondering how to receive work from other subprojects such as the prime search ones. I had updated my preferences accordingly an hour ago by checking a few of the prime search subprojects, but have not yet received any work from them.
Is it because that there isn't any or because of my low credit?

The front page shows work available for each subproject, and if they run out of work, something went badly wrong on our side.

You didn't get new tasks immediately because your computer still had work to do. Once your computer's amount of work drops below a certain level (configurable locally with the BOINC manager), your computer will request work from whatever subprojects you have enabled at that time. Right now, your computer has some PPS and SGS tasks, so everything is working properly.

Thanks for your quick reply.
Unfortunately, the problem is that BOINC is not appearing to receive any PPS or SGS tasks, and all it's running so far is 321 Sieve.
Is it because my BOINC configurations prioritize 321 Sieve over other subprojects?

Never mind, I just turned 321 Sieve off in my preferences, and now I'm getting tasks from other subprojects.
Thanks for the help!

Edit: I think it actually has more to do with the fact that BOINC takes a while to update accordingly to the web preferences, so all I needed to do was be a bit more patient :)

Oops didn't see your post here.
You have to press update in the BOINC manager to get new preferences.
