I have 7 machines working on BOINC projects. I had them exclusively working on Rosetta until I checked the performance of each machine. I noticed ver few credits coming from my AMD64 machine. Upon review I saw that most of the work units were receiving errors with no credits granted.

Are ther problems with the Boinc client on the AMD64 platform?

I'm using Ubuntu 8 and have installed the Boinc client using the integrated application management platform so I assumed this was the most stable way of running Boinc.

After playing with it, I simply interrupted Rosetta and tried SETI which seems to be doing better.

Thoughts?

There aren't any issues with AMD64...

First step: it's the 'too many restarts' that's causing BOINC to kill the task. Have you got "Leave applications in memory while preempted" set to 'yes'?

If so, is the machine Prime95 and MS memtest stable?

You could also try a project reset...

I don't have "Leave in memory"

I'll try this and see if I can get it to function.

I'll also run the pre-boot memory tests if Rosetta continues to fail.
I'll repost with results.

Thanks for the reply

It's an option in your 'Computing Preferences' under 'Participants'.

One thing that you may be missing is the 32bit compatability libs. This project does not actually have a 64bit app so all tasks will error out if you do not have those libs installed. These libs are not normally installed on the ubuntu 64bit distro but can be added through the normal package manager.
