Re: Default site theme changed

The light theme has regressed since a few days ago: User names are now shown in yellow color, which is hard to read on the light blue background. Could this be fixed (without detriment to the dark theme)? ------ (Call me odd, but I still read web sites in dark print on light background. I use an Eiz...

Re: Used Nvidia GPU Market

I think the announced Founders Edition prices will be largely irrelevant and are mostly just for show: Probably, not very many FE cards will be produced, relatively to the overall market. The prices of the AIB partners will be what will count. There are a few listings already, and those prices look ...

Re: Hardware RIP Thread

How many devices and how many Watts does this loop have to cool? My understanding is that this type of pump is for small loops. Perhaps with either 1 high-power device, or 2 low to medium power devices to cool.

Re: Hardware RIP Thread

My first pump was an SPC pump as part of an EKWB EK-XLC Predator 360 modular all-in-one cooling unit. I used this unit for half a year in its original configuration with just the CPU waterblock, but then expanded it with a GPU block, and a few months after that with an extra reservoir and an extra r...

Re: Quarantine@home (not a boinc project)

I am not seeing myself running any non-BOINC DC project anytime soon. (Folding@home excepted.) https://quarantine.infino.me/ Besides an ominous "Quarantine@Home is a project of the Aleph-1 Foundation" footer, I am not seeing any "about us" info there. No info who is driving this project (except indi...

Re: Bunkering basics, by our friend [H]Coleslaw

It is important to know when the client reports results. BOINC reports completed work at the first of: The next work request from a project. 24 hours before the deadline. Immediately if the work is completed later than 24 hours before the deadline. Connect every X days after the work is completed. W...

Re: Amicable numbers, 10*21, GPU

Nvidia-smi just gives an instantaneous 'snap-shot', correct? You need to use the loop parameter to get it to refresh. For example: --loop=1000 Will refresh the results every 1 second. Or for a compact table layout, which gets you a nice history as large as the scrollback buffer of your terminal: nv...

Re: COVID-19 Folding Race

Earlier this week I stashed some Rosetta tasks away, to be worked on until the FB sprint starts and after the sprint. With the sprint cancelled, I took part in the PrimeGrid challenge instead, but went on to finish the Rosetta cache afterwards. The cache did not suffice until the new Rosetta work ap...

Re: rosetta@home COVD-19

Since late Sunday, Rosetta has tasks again. From what I understand, the amount of work to be done should be plenty for the time being, only the work generator and later on the validator/ assimilator... may become a bottleneck if donor participation continues to rise a lot. The unavailability of task...

Re: COVID-19 Folding Race

I'm going back to SETI. I don't think the TeAm needs my help beating Tom's, and F@H is getting plenty of compute power, maybe more than they need. F@H definitely has more contributor power than they can properly use right now. But so does SETI@home, where half the world is fighting for the last tas...

Hey, I was lurking over at AT and found out about the race, will there be any individual stats, or team stats only?
So far there are only Ken's team stats, http://tastats.atspace.cc/ta-th-20/.
If anybody wanted to do user stats, that would be an Herculean effort this time. :-)

Re: VirtualBox and Hardware Virtualization Not Detected

Check the "secure computing" thing in the BIOS when you have an opportunity to go there. Is it worth checking secure boot in the bios too? I've read that should be disabled. Right, Secure Boot --- that's what I was thinking of. This is what prohibits booting an unsigned kernel, as well as booting a...

Re: VirtualBox and Hardware Virtualization Not Detected

Hmm, I am seeing something unexpected on my own machines now: kvm and kvmintel are present in the kernel simultaneously while vboxdrv, vboxnetadp,vboxnetflt,vboxpci are present too. So I was mistaken about the exclusivity of kvm vs. vbox. Check the "secure computing" thing in the BIOS when you have ...

"modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'vboxdrv': Operation not permitted" Two thoughts: Maybe another hypervisor is already loaded, e.g. kvm. Show us the output of lsmod. There can be only one hypervisor running. If you see something obvious, try to unload it with "sudo modprobe -r ......". Or maybe "...

Re: VirtualBox and Hardware Virtualization Not Detected

I don't remember how I installed virtualbox on Mint and OpenSuse.
The vbox driver(s) should probably already be loaded into the kernel at the time when boinc-client is started.

How about...
$ sudo modprobe vboxdrv
$ lsmod | grep vbox
$ sudo service boinc-client restart
