I'm running on a iMac G5 1,8 GHz, and my first WU for this project is telling me 50 hours to completion. Is that normal or is there something wrong?

(My average time for a WU for Seti@Home (with boinc) is about 6 hours, and for Einstein about 10 hours.)

Edit: Something strange happend, the numbers of % completed changed while rosetta was paused and something else was running. And than the boinc client crashed, which didn't happen before I added Rosetta.

The primary developer of the client app is on holiday. I'll make him aware of your problem upon his return next week. Thanks for the feedback.

Rosetta tends to jump in increments of 8.3%. The estimated time of completion is not very accurate. One of the things I found that I had to do on my iMac G5 is extend the time for switching between projects from 60 minutes to around 120-180 minutes. This will allow the Rosetta app to get to the next checkpoints, even during the final phase of calculations which can be a bit long.

My actual times on my iMac G5 1.6 ghz are 3.5 to 5 hours, depending on the work unit. I have successfully completed 34 work units since 23-9-05. Another thing to be aware of is that the Rosetta process is actually 2 step. Usually the first 75-83.3% goes quickly, but the last part after 83.8% takes longer. This is because the calculations in the second step are more complex.

There is actually a problem with some projects such as Einstein and Rosetta not switching properly with SETI. The problem is apparently with the libraries. The Mac SETI app is using some older libraries. Suposedly the next version of the Mac SETI app will fix this, but that may not occur until v5.x

I have Einstein and Seti running for some time now, and I never had a problem.

Ok no problem, I will check this board from time to time.
