I'll bet the cleanup for this will take ages.

Hey Michael -- that last challenge update ended up in the wrong thread :)

having read the last couple of posts, I recall my last visit to the UK where some of the local folks had a great time laughing at my attempts to pronounce place names... Then the thought below came to me. Maybe it's a revelation of historical significance? more likely it's not, here you go:

So, a long time ago, briefly after Stonehenge was built, the rulers of the land decided that it needed to name all of the places in England. They decided to appoint one person to do this task and soon after, they made their decision. As the new appointee began to name the places, they quickly realized that he was not such a competent speller, and started asking others in the room for spelling help. At some point, he raised his head and said "I name this place 'Werster'" -- How do you spell that? Quickly, Wise-guy-number one starts rapping off letters "w - o - r - c - e -"... Wise-guy turns to his friends and laughs, saying "I cant believe this guy is still writing all of these letters -- let's see how long he'll go" ... "s - t - e - r - s - h - i - r - e". This process must have gone on and on, over many months as the rest of the places in the the kingdom were named.

That app_config looks right.

The warning message can usually be ignored and will go away when the first task of that type is run.

Is the app_config file in the project folder (boinc/projects/www.primegrid.com) or somewhere else?

After putting the app_config in place did you tell the BOINC manager to re-read the preferences files? Maybe try restarting the system (I know it's a Windows style suggestion, but for BOINC it might work too).
An update to the BOINC client likely isn't necessary, but can't hurt anything to try.


EDIT: strange enough, 5 minutes after posting this, I re-copy/pasted the app-config text into the file, reloaded and it's working properly -- still boggled as to exactly what happened, but must have been a typo or maybe a bad line-ending somewhere

I seem to have a vague memory of multithreading on linux being somehow different, but I can't seem to find that info in real life. I've set up cpu-gfn21 on my linux box, and set it to run on 8 cores using the following in my app-config:

<app_config>
<app_version>
<app_name>genefer</app_name>
<cmdline>-nt 8</cmdline>
<plan_class>cpuGFN21</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>8</avg_ncpus>
</app_version>
</app_config>

I notice a line in my log when the client restarts:


PrimeGrid 12/11/2019 2:03:27 PM Your app_config.xml file refers to an unknown application 'genefer21'. Known applications: 'llrPPS', 'llrPPSE', 'llrMEGA', 'llrTRP', 'ap26', 'llrGCW', 'llrTPS', 'llrWOO', 'llrCUL', 'llrSOB', 'llrPSP', 'llrESP', 'llr321', 'llrSR5', 'genefer17low', 'gcw_si

have I missed something, or maybe I'm not running the correct client version? I'm using 7.9.2

Edit: currently, the machine is downloading and running 1 task per core
