Thanx for the Linux tips!!! :-)

There sure are a whole lot to learn about Linux, and bash isn't all that easy all the time,
but given how much one really can do, and the user power gained, it sure is worth it anyway!! :-)

I'll have a closer look on this issue this weekend.

Happy crunching!!

The checkbox I meant is that in the Rosetta project preferences, and not the one in the boinc-manager GUI.

It was a long time since I started crunching Rosetta, so I cannot remember if I modified it or not. ;-)

I wonder if that box isn't checked by default, because I cannot remember myself doing that.
In any case it is checked, and the task memory shouldn't be an issue in this case.
The computer in question also features 2Gb RAM per core, so it should be enough for now I hope.
Maybe I do another test with that machine some other day - preferably when I installed it properly with a permanent OS.
Two other of my computers have recently finished some tasks successfully, and yet another one will hopefully complete two more tasks on Tuesday.

Happy Crunching!!!

No, it was a new computer that I installed, and I didn't remember to check it.
But in fact it was not changing task at the moment it happened the last time.
First I wondered what might have happened, as the tasks should have been ready by then.
When I was investigating that, I happened to see it just when it happen, and of course, I then also understood why no new tasks were coming from that computer.
(However, I normally do check that box on almost every computer.)

One of my computers (host-id:3672956, HP6530b, Core2 Duo w. Xubuntu 18.04 (64bit) and Boinc ver 7.9.3 )
is currently working on two tasks (1064244530 and 1064244633, both Rosetta v4.08 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu),
but it never gets any longer than 5% before it restarts calculating from 0% again.
I haven't seen this problem on any of my other computers, what might be wrong?
