The programs using OpenCL would need to switch over to Metal. Fortunately that isn't too terribly difficult.


I, for one, would like to see that. Is anyone working on it?

OK, but the second main task is still unsent a week later. I'm guessing it is stuck in some kind of limbo.

Does this make any sense?

This is profoundly embarrassing. My mt-3 task also failed, with messages similar to yours.

I went back to my benchmark results from Sep 27 and discovered that those successful runs were, in fact, single threaded. They ran in ~558,000 seconds, running four tasks simultaneously. (Between then and now I lost sight of that, and prepared the M1 for multitasking along with all the other machines, that are Intel.)

I apologize for leading this discussion astray, but it looks like multi-threading is not emulating well on the M1 processor.

"Using SSE4 transform (3 threads)"

"atos cannot load symbols for the file genefer_macintel64_3.3.4 for architecture x86_64.
xcode-select: note: no developer tools were found at '/Applications/Xcode.app', requesting install."

I'm running an M1, but without the problem you describe. If I were, I would reset the project and re-install BOINC, and try again.

I have run GFN-21 tasks with 4 threads several times. They took over 5 days, but they ran successfully. For the current challenge, I am running with 3 threads in order to keep temperatures down and still finish in time. So far, so good.

If you run single threaded, be prepared to wait nearly three weeks for results.

Are you sure? This message appears to have gone out 10 minutes before the end of the challenge.

Maybe pause to think about the master of entropy at work.
I hope the A/C is running 24/7 to 'make sure' the computer doesn't overheat.


Not likely. The host is not processing anything. It is merely downloading WUs and waiting for them to time out, then deleting and downloading more. It has been doing so since last February. Probably doesn't use any more power than a nightlight.

The owner may have died. It happens, even to folks in our community. One's imagination can run wild with that.

An alternative hypothesis is that his intent is evil and he is just looking for attention.

Either way, there must be a way that this host could be "dis-enrolled" so that it would no longer be served. After all, if someone were deliberately faking results in order to sabotage a project, the powers that be could and would do so.

Have pity on the dead guy's heirs and lay wunk to rest.

The proof tasks are not returned to you. They are sent to the next host requesting work, probably not you. Look in the tasks pages for the WU you completed and you will find a link to the proof task. There you can see who got it. It might even be you, but the odds of that are very slim.

Okay, but for the record my 10.13 machines have been working fine on all other projects. It is ONLY the WW project that fails on them.

Posted 463 days ago by Profile JH30895Project donor
According to the Applications page, all three Mac WW apps are working for "Mac OS 10.5+ running on an Intel 64-bit CPU".

My machines running Mac OS 10.13 fail immediately. Machines running 10.14 or higher work fine. Failing machine booted up on 10.14 works.

I vaguely remember reading a conversation regarding this (last year), but I cannot find it now. Are the Mac WW apps listed wrong on the Applications page?
