Version 6.05 of the cube application had a problem on at least one 64-bit machine (see other thread). I fiddled with the code and fixed a minor problem. I doubt that this fixed the real problem, but it's worth checking before we try something else, so I've released version 6.06. With St. Valentine's day long past, the graphics have returned to the simple rotating cube.

Same behavior for me.

Manager crashes:

Tomorrow night I'll update to the latest alpha build of the CC/Manager and see if that makes a difference.

And FWIW, the xphoon I downloaded did work. It's hidden under my desktop wallpaper. I could see it flash by when I locked my desktop.

Interesting. The manager crashing has something to do with permissions to use the display. If I su to boinc's account and then show graphics (with E@H as I don't have any P@H right now) the graphics display properly.

Ah, that is interesting. xphoon writes to the "root" window of the display, which is behind all others. This says that the wallpaper has its own borderless window in front of the root window, instead of being written to the root window. I didn't know that; now I do.

Good work. I suspected it might be something like this, but we needed proof. Now that we know this, we have to come up with a way to allow the graphics to show for users who are in the boinc group. Or grant the boinc user access using something like the MIT magic cookie. Fun.

So two things to try with 'xhost' are:

xhost +local:boinc
xhost +local:

The first grants the boinc user permission to open a window in your X11 session. The second grants any local user that permission.

You don't want to use `xhost +` by itself because it also allows non-local (ie. network) connections and then you can get sniffed or other troubles.

For some reason it seems your machine tried to report the same WU twice. But it made it the first time, so I don't think there is a problem (unless it continues to happen).

No luck. I tested with E@H to remove the factor of the cube graphics app crashing. In both cases, the manager crashes, albeit with different stack dumps.

I'll also add I just upgraded to 6.10.36 (the latest Linux alpha) and the manager still crashes.

I'll email the list and point them to these threads.

This is on Fedora 10, right? Because I also tested it on Fedora 10 and it worked for me.

I seem to recall reading something about Xorg configuration settings that ignore xhost and require stronger access controls, but I don't recall the details. And it's strange that it would be different on two machines both with Fedora 10.

Just to add what we are learning, if I run the cube graphics program manually from the 'boinc' user account with xhost turned off so that it should not be able to open a window, then the following appears in stderrgfx.txt:

No protocol specified
GLUT: Fatal Error in cube_graphics_6.05_i686-pc-linux-gnu: could not open displa
y: :0
SIGSEGV: segmentation violation

That's less cryptic than what Kathryn has reported.

Yes. 64 bit Fedora 10. KDE as the desktop, FWIW. You're not using any of those fancy smancy window managers, are you? :)



Per Rom's message to the alpha list, I checked if it does the same without fiddling with the xhost permissions and it does. The manager crashes just as hard. I rebooted because I didn't now how to change the xhost stuff back to default.

It worked correctly for me on Fedora 10 without KDE or Gnome.
I thought I had the problem with Ubuntu and Gnome, but then it worked with Einstein and I'm waiting for more work from Pirates (someone should do something about that :-)

I also have a machine with KDE, but I upgraded this morning from F8 to F10 and now it's hosed, so no test there until I sort that out.

You can say `xhost -` to turn off all access, and then add to that.
Or Control-Alt-Backspace (not Delete) will restart the X server.

I think I've been able to replicate this problem.

Over the weekend I installed Fedora 10 with KDE via Live CD on a spare computer I had here. With the BOINC 6.6.37 package the "Show Graphics" button does not work. The problem is with GLUT getting the initial window open. Diagnostics from stderr will be written to the slot, but only if the user is a member of group 'boinc' so that the user has permission to create a file there. The file is called stderrgfx.txt.

I will investigate this with the latest alpha release, 6.10.37 to see if it's still present, but I expect it is. This is not a problem with the BOINC client or manager, it's the application and/or libraries installed on the system. It may be possible to correct for it by installing an additional library. Or it may take recompiling the application. Hopefully we'll be able to test here and determine which.

For some reason it seems your machine tried to report the same WU twice. But it made it the first time, so I don't think there is a problem (unless it continues to happen).


A little late to the party, but I had this happening continually. It gave me time to verify what was causing the error.

Basically, BOINC would do standard communication with the Pirate's server and time out after a period of no response. Since the results were not removed, this error appeared the next time the manager tried to communicate. On occasion, the first communication would finish normally, but the manager would not remove the tasks also causing the error.

Between the two, I would get an error as much as a third of the time some days.

I have noticed during this run that the database server can get really bogged down. I've tried restarting it, but that only helped a little. And I notice from the status page (which can be really slow to load) that there are over 4,000 "messages from hosts" -- trickle messages. The only thing is, this application does not send or receive trickle messages. This may or may not be the cause of the slow-down, but it certainly needs to be explained.

I flushed out all the old trickle messages and restarted the database server, web server, and project. That seems to have improved performance, but the large number of workunits in the database may also still be an issue. We don't have a very powerful database server. We will see how it goes as what is now in the database is purged.
