Rest assured that the Project Team does review and react to the posts in these "problems with..." threads.

That's all I need to know Mod.Sense. Thanks. I'll leave it in their hands.

32/64 of my most recent tasks have failed (32 passed) so my problem persists. I look forward to being more productive when a solution (or advice for me) appears.

Well, I sure would like to be back crunching for Rosetta.

Why can't they take this problem process and put it into Ralph and ask for volunteers? That would let those of us who just want to run WU's not need to constantly baby this thing along.

I don't understand how you guys are getting failures so often.
I am crunching stuff with the h1_0953.45.xxxx and get no failures at all.
Only the Psp stuff, but that is just an annoyance. I still get the usual 80-90 claimed and 130-160 granted credit all the time. I run windows xp home with sp3 and a intel dual core with some good memory and I just chug along no problems.

Thanks Speedy...this did indeed help me out. It took a few go's for me to get it right, but yes this did solve my problem.

Cheers to you as well.

In spite of everything, I do have one machine, a PIII with 512 megs of DRAM and a I gig processor which has kept sailing right along in Rosetta.

So, that is compared to my three machines, 2 Core 2 Duo machines and 1 PIII that have failed to run this bugger.

I am delighted for those who are having no problems; but you can tell from this thread that things are no going well.

I've been running mini 1.32 as good as gold on my Dual Core AMD Opteron Processor 180 for the last day & a bit

Minirosetta 1.28 WUs always crashed my PC, and v1.32 does the same. Updating BOINC to the latest version didn't help. Upgrading my Windows XP Pro to SP3 didn't change the situation, either. This happens on my AMD Athlon Dual Core.

My BOINC Manager is now configured in a protected mode now, so Minirosetta v1.32 WUs can't lock up my PC, but the WUs fail with a 'compute error' after 5 hours of wasted work. I don't want to waste my PC on WUs that will fail, so I abort all the Minirosetta WUs when I see them, hoping that I will get Rosetta Beta WUs to replace them.

Some project sites such as PrimeGrid and World Community Grid give the user an option to choose which applications (sub-projects) to run. I would like to be able to opt out of Minirosetta until this bug is fixed.

I'm not sure if it was luck but I haven't run into any bad work units. I hope the rest of you are crunching good work units now

For the third time this month Rosetta Mini 1.32 has "hung", stopping everything else from running, after completing at 100% - only releasing after the "Abort" button was pressed.
The last has only just occurred (@ circa 16:30, 06/09/08) running abinitio_homfrag_71_A_1prqA_4443_32677_0. Luckily I noticed that it was still running at 100% complete and was locking everything else out - the last time, it locked everything out for three days before it was noticed.
I am starting to get a bit sick and tired of Rosetta, with all of the problems I have experienced over the last year or so!

Those of you who are having problems with minirosetta v1.32 may want to add a description of the machine where you were running it when it had problems in case the problem appears only on specific types of machines.

For example, I don't remember any problems recently; I'm running BOINC 5.10.45 under 32-bit Vista SP1 on an HP Compaq Presario SR5125CL PC with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3600+ 1.90 GHz processor with 2 GB memory.

With Rosetta problems,I am running two Core-2-Duo Vista machines with 2 gig of DRAM, and one Intel PIII machine with 512 megs of DRAM.

With no problem, one Intel PIII with 512 megs of DRAM.

Go figure!

Since just about every mini WU I've had since v1.28 has failed on me right from the start I'd certainly like to have this option as well. The v5.98 WUs seem to run fine but ironically, the BOINC client doesn't seem to be requesting these lately. I guess I'll have to try the suggestion mentioned in post 55511 when I have time. Per a suggestion from Peter Leman that I check my RAM, I've removed and reset the RAM cards and run Memtest86+ (v2.01) on my machine but no errors were found. Check out the last 4 pages or so of results and see that there's nothing but failures:

i tried looking up that code, but it is hard to find relevant information.
one place i saw made mention of the screensaver in dc programs and another made mention of the graphics card. maybe there is something in those pages.

here is one of the pages: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=163
https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/results.php?userid=254884, it is an old thread from 2005 but is the closest to the error you are getting.

there is also this boinc wiki thread that mentions climate at home was having issues, but again does not go into to great of detail unless the links lead to something good. http://www.boinc-wiki.info/Unrecoverable_error_for_result_%27(result)%27_(_-_exit_code_-%27(number)%27_(%27(hex-number)%27))

lastly here is something mod posted in the forum area: https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=3372&nowrap=true#43480

from the looks of it, OC, overheat or the screensaver could be culprits.

This stuff is a good place to start....anyone else got ideas?

With all due respect, this business of checking individual computer symptoms to root out this problem is just so much ca-ca.

I am running 8 projects, 9 projects, and 4 projects, respectively, on the computers having difficulty with Rosetta. I suspect that many others experiencing the problems are doing much the same.

To suspect any given machine, when all of the other projects on these machines are doing fine, especially and including all those who, like myself, find the screen savers useful, is silly.

The problem lies solely with the project. The managers of the project ought to realize this by now, and pull this away. That way, those of us who have been loyally trying to do our best for what is arguably the most important project at BOINC could proceed with this very valuable work. Instead, what they are doing is earning the enmity of some people who will detach and never come back.

I bought a new laptop a few days ago. I'm running Vista (x64) and I seem to be getting a lot errors. This error has shown up a couple times (can't acquire lock file). There are also 4 or 5 of theseError code:200.

so how is it that my single machine with 2 cores and some corsair memroy runs just fine and your multitude of machines does not?
