1) Message boards : Number crunching : No Work for PPC? (Message 63353)
Posted 15 Sep 2009 by David Riese
Since there might be occasional work available, I will leave my PPC Mac attached to Rosetta.

While I am waiting I will keep my PPC Mac busy with World Community Grid and Superlink

I think SIMAP, POEM and Lattice are also very interesting projects wich has MacOS PPC support.

I have three multi-processor G5 PowerMacs and several G4 Macs (mostly PowerBooks). It has been months since work has been available for these units. Because of this, I\'d like to echo the request that Rosetta discontinue advertising support for the OS X/PPC platform. It would appear that the \"gradual phase-out\" is, for all practical purposes, complete. It\'s too bad - those units were doing a lot of crunching for Rosetta (roughly 15% of my total).

IMHO, SIMAP is not a particularly appealing alternative - work is available only very periodically. My PPC units are primarily running SETI and Einstein.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Problems with Rosetta version 5.54 (Message 38322)

Lots of R@H units not working on my G4 Dual as well with the newest boinc update + 5.54. Same for Predictor@home (involving maybe the same math or same expectations of my system?).

Anyone getting 5.54 to happily run on a G4 Mac with the older boinc client?

For the last 2-3 days I have had problems running 5.54 on most of my Macs, including G4 eMacs, a G4 PowerBook, G4 Mac minis, an Intel Mac Mini, a G5 DP PowerMac, a MacBook Pro, and a Mac Pro. The only machines that have appeared to escape these problems is a G3 iMac and a Toshiba Tablet PC (Pentium III-M).

None of these three work units has been completed by another machine.
