I saw in an earlier post that virtualisation needed to be enabled in the BIOS to run the Rosetta tasks. On my AMD Ryzen 7 5800x I enabled SVM in BIOS (AMD's Virtualisation), rebooted and asked Rosetta to update and I got this "Message from server: VirtualBox jobs require hardware acceleration support. Your processor does not support the required instruction set." I disabled SVM and Rosetta started downloading tasks again. My CPU is fairly new (released Oct 2020). Has anyone else seen this? Maybe I need to reinstall BOINC/VirtualBox with virtualisation already set.

That fixed it. I went to reinstall BOINC/Virtualbox with virtualization already being enabled in BIOS and it asked if I wanted to repair or uninstall it. I chose repair and once it completed I asked Rosetta@Home to update and no more error message in event log. I can now run Rosetta tasks with virtualization enabled.

Please disregard the last post. It took an hour but the error resurfaced in the event log. I should have waited till tasks were actually sent. I have 3 other PC's running Rosetta@home with virtualization enabled in the BIOS. The only difference I can think of is they are all Intel CPU's and my new one is an AMD Ryzen 7 8500X.

Message 105308 - Posted: 1 Mar 2022, 23:55:57 UTC

This morning I was surprised to see 11 Rosetta tasks running. In the event log overnight there were 2 attempts to download Rosetta tasks that failed as usual. Then at 10:30 PM. Rosetta started downloading tasks. Since then in the log I see 1 other failure and several successes. I run BOINC on 8 clients so I went searching through their event logs and found 3 of them had the same errors but were also running Rosetta tasks. I wonder what the server is actually checking before spitting this error out "Message from server: VirtualBox jobs require hardware acceleration support. Your processor does not support the required instruction set." If you see this error do not fret your computer is fine. It will start downloading more Rosetta tasks shortly if not in awhile.

Message 105312 - Posted: 3 Mar 2022, 7:07:07 UTC

I'm old and confused. Ran SETI since 2003, Rosetta since 2009. Now I cannot get any Rosetta tasks. I don't even know where the event log Rich C mentions is located. I'm just a Windows 11 computer user without a lot of internal skills.

I've got SiDock@Home running now with no issues, just can't get any Rosetta tasks. I've reset the project. I've removed and re-added Rosetta. I'm running the virtual box version of Boinc but I don't really even know what that does or means in relation to Rosetta.

Would appreciate some direction. Is there a BOINC/ROSSETTA for dummies book on Amazon?

Message 105314 - Posted: 3 Mar 2022, 7:28:20 UTC - in response to Message 105312.  

I'm running the virtual box version of Boinc but I don't really even know what that does or means in relation to Rosetta.
If you have VirtualBox installed, then go to your account page, Computing and Credit section, "Computers on this account", click on View, Click on Details, down near the bottom should be a button related to Python Tasks, labelled Accept (or something like that). Click on it.
That should get you some Python Tasks, however you will probably need to increase your disk and memory settings to do more than a couple of Tasks at a time as they require huge amounts of RAM (even though they don't actually use it) and disk space (which they do use) in order to start processing.

Thanks Grant,

I "accepted" the virtual box as you suggested and then dozens of regular work units downloaded as well as four of the python units.

Much Appreciated.

Message 105368 - Posted: 8 Mar 2022, 22:52:29 UTC - in response to Message 105322.  

Ran through a day or two's worth of Python projects and now it has quit giving me projects again. I'm back to running some other projects since I can't get tasks. Not sure what else to do. Maybe uninstall BOINC with Virtual Box and go back to Non-Virtual Box Boinc and see if I start getting projects again. Real drag as I've been running it for so many years with no issues.

There are almost no Rosetta 4.20 Tasks released these days, and when they are released they are usually gone within a few hours.

If you produced a bunch of errors with your last batch of Python work, your system may be blocked again.
Check it's details to see if the button shows Accept again, and click it if that's the case.
