Thanks mfl0p for the explanation.
I can now gladly report that also my WUs have validated and everything is fine. I confirm around 100min/6WUs. Excellent work, thanks again!

So far so good, didn't have to install any additional packages either, crunching of 6 AP26s has started, benchmark did not create any errors - looking perfectly fine so far. I'll keep you updated once the first batch has completed.
Really great work, mfl0p, thank you very much!

Edit: Would it make sense to also use the two PPEs for crunching if you're not doing anything else on your PS3? If so, how would I do that, just change the number of CPUs to 8 rather than 6?

Thanks for your reply Siegfried.
The issue is, I don't want to (or rather I can't) install anything, including Wubi. So I'm stuck with LiveCDs, and CDs make persistent changes difficult. No, I don't have 10 USB-Sticks.
The BOINC version on Dotsch/UX 1.1 is 6.4.5, so it's not a terribly old one and certainly a pretty stable one.

The same thing that happened on previous challenges has happened again:
I have the option of using a couple of PCs in the office. All of them run Win32 so I am using a LiveCD with a 64-bit Ubuntu on it (Dotsch/UX).
Now I have booted about 10 of them using this live CD and attached them all to the project.
However, on each Boinc update, all my WUs get "aborted by project" - even the ones that were running a second ago.
Unfortunately I only noticed that today, so I have lost about 480 core-hours so far (20 cores x 24 hours).
I then noticed that only one of them appeared in the my-computers list. It then occurred to me that they all have the same hostname (boinc), but I didn't think that the computer-id is exclusively related to the hostname.
Anyway, since changing the hostname on the fly messes up X I went to the command-line and detached the project from all PCs. I then changed the hostname and re-attached the box from the command-line.
Now, the weird thing is that of the 10 workstations, only 4 show up at the moment. I've had every workstation show up right after I attached the project, but they have miraculously disappeared and i do not doubt that all their work will be in vain, too.
It also seems that the 4 machines seem to vary. At first, I saw boinc07, boinc08, boinc10, boinc19 in the list, now it's boinc07, boinc08, boinc11, boinc19... and it should be boinc07, boinc08, boinc10, boinc11, boinc13, boinc14, boinc17, boinc19, boinc21 (and one just called boinc)
Can you tell me what else I'm supposed to do, I'm running out of ideas! And I'm also quite .. well... annoyed!
Edit: BTW it really can't be the hostname as I have multiple hosts that show up with the same hostname.

what a race, it made me switch to decaf towards the end...

and a big thanks to SETI.Germany for making this one the most exciting challenges I've taken part in

Hehe.. decaf, I did the same ;)
What a great race, less than 10k apart (which is less than 1 quad's daily output), absolutely amazing.
Chapeaux to Boincstats, awesome job! Towards the end, I was even looking for a BOINC client for my iPhone :P

Another one is 2b893668ed7cea750afb0533693ebe8c.
I'm shutting them all down now, lost plenty of CPU cycles there.
This is what I've been seeing:

Please send me the host ID on which the problem is happening; I scanned through your hosts, but could not see it.

One of the host IDs is 8165698f9dc416676ace1717be2bae9b (taken from client_state.xml - dunno if that's the correct place).

I've got a few boxes running on Fedora10 Live CD (64-bit). At the beginning, everything looks fine. I get about 35-40 WUs. But the next time I issue an "update" in the Manager, all of the unfinished WUs (or the ones I haven't even touched yet) become "Aborted by project". On all 5 machines. What does that mean? It doesn't happen on my 32-bit boxes...
