I have just updated to BOINC ver. 7.0.25. However, computation errors happened with all 7 work units (6 out of them were newly downloaded ones since the update). Should I revert to the old version 6.12.34?

It looks as though there must be some problem work units out there. As your failures were reported, the tasks were reissued to other machines and failed there as well under various BOINC versions.

Is anyone else having problems with task names starting with "rb_04_12" & "rb_04_13"??

I have been getting several computation errors since I installed Boinc 7.0.25 x(64). The latest starts with aa_centroid_cst.

I am experiencing the same issue with 7.0.25 (x64). Of my most recent 84 tasks, 66 have computation errors with only 18 successes.

Cheers,

Adrian

I too can verify that since upgrading to Boinc 7.0.25 (x64) most of my work units have computation errors.

I have been having the same problem with BOINC 7.0.25 (WinXP 64 bit). Any ideas on a fix?

I'm crunching Rosetta on a 32bit machine, so I don't think the 64 bit argument below can be valid.

Yesterday 27/4/2012 I was getting more and more client errors using BOINC 7.0.025.

In frustration I stopped my crunching with Rosetta and replaced BOINC with version 6.12.34 which can still be downloaded from the BOINC website.

Since then, I have had no client errors.

So on conclusion, something seems amiss with BOINC 7.0.25 and Rosetta.

My other 2 64bit computers are crunching other projects seperatley and are not experiencing any issues with BOINC 7.0.25 yet !

Its a temporary solution, in my case, and I hope it helps others, until the situation is resolved.

Since BOINC 7 has come out there have been some people that are having issues with tasks erroring out or running high priority all the time and grabbing all the cores in the process. On another project someone has posted this issue on the BOINC error board and has heard back that BOINC will put the fix in the next version, whenever that is. So you might as well stay with Version 6 for now until the next version of BOINC comes out.

Same here ! Just installed the latest version of BOINC, and most of the tasks from Rosetta end up with Computation Error, with is not the case with other projects: Milkyway, Einstein, Orbit, SETI, Cosmology - they have no errors at all.
I run Win7 64 bit.

Just set your projects to no new work. Finish what you have and then go back to version 6 if you want to keep running all projects without errors.

Rosetta has a known problem with the version 7 series of Boinc, stop using it or find another project until they fix it is my suggestion.

Get it as regular as clock work. It turns out to be a missing file (usually .ini)
so although the wu has been completed it cant wright to the .ini file as the address quoted is not their it is in another file or folder address or in deed missing altogether.

I was getting errors on 7.0.25 and then 7.0.26, but I have since changed to 7.0.27 and things are much better. gone from about 50% error to about 2 in two days. I also switched Rosetta preferences to 1hr/WU. On the errors left, it seems to be happening after 'Setting up graphics native'

I've just gone back to version 7.026 and I'm getting errors again.

As i'm not prepared to waste anymore valuable computing time on unpredictable results, I've detatched from the project until matters are resolved.

Yes I could go back to version 6.xxx as I did do earlier in this thread, but I'm not faffing around anymore.

I dont have any problems with Seti, on all 3 of my machines running 7.026, and that where I will stay until this is sorted.

I'm having about a 2/3'rd failure rate on ALL my Rosetta work units since the 7.0.25 Boinc update. Reports back Client Error and Compute Error. This version of Boinc and my CPU are fine with SETI work units on all cores so I think the problem is specific to the Rosetta project and this latest update. Is this on the radar? Is a fix at hand? Here's what's reported from my most recent failed work unit:

NO...Rosetta does NOT support the Version 7 series of Boinc and has NO PLANS to change anything! They are quite happy with how things are going right now. Many of us have moved on to other projects as a result.

I should point out that mikey is speaking for himself and not for Rosetta@home. Mikey's comments are based on observation, without knowledge of the project's intentions.

You are more than welcome to say that but the Admin Michael said the same thing in one of his messages! Now it could be he has no clue either but one would think an Admin posting as an Admin would be responsible!
