I am seeing the following message ...

29/07/2007 14:47:57|Pirates@Home|Message from server: Starting in 246 days and 14 hours, project will require a minimum BOINC core client version of 5.12.0. You are currently using version 5.10.13; please upgrade before this time.

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php doesn't list v 5.12.0.

Can anyone shed light on this please?


Don't worry, they're prob'ly just testing something.

In any case, you now have 245 days, by which time BOINC v6 may well be out anyway.

Often the 1st advice is to update graphics drivers if possible.


Thanks for that - I've checked and there is a graphics driver update available. I've just changed the screensaver for the moment, but I'll have a play later on and see if the driver update does the job.

This WU, amongst others, has caused the display on my machine to lock up after going into powersaving mode. pressing any key brings up a frozen screensaver, but there then seems to be no way to get rid of the screensaver image.


Seems to be happening with other projects to (such as Leisen Classical). Maybe it's the BOINC version - or my graphics, as my other machine doesn't have the same problem, though as it's running a diferent set of projects, it's hard to tell...

Hello, anyone out there????

Graphics Adaptor is ATI Radion Express 1150 driving a widescreen laptop display at 1280x800 resolution, 32 bit colour.

BOINC version is 5.10.13, and I think the same thing was happening with version 5.10.7.

AFAIK, the problem occurs when the screen has gone into powersave mode and BOINC has switched to another project (don't know which one, as I can't get the display back without restarting the machine). I've tried to get the machine to hibernate, but it just beeps at me - obviously a message is coming up, but I don't know what it is without the display, obviously!

This looks similar to a problem with a version of Rosetta earlier in the year sorry, can't remember what version, but they have fixed it,
