Thanks. I had the developers change the title of the News (and thread).

Message 61319 - Posted: 31 Mar 2015, 19:29:11 UTC

Hello,

I just installed BOINC version 7.4.42 on a fresh, new installation of Yosemite 10.10.2 on a Late 2013 iMac.

When booting in Verbose Mode, I get this error message at the end of the boot process, which repeats itself many times:

BUG in process suhelperd [202]: over-released legacy external boot assertions (1 total, 1 external, 0 legacy external).

Traces of the error message stay on the screen even after the boot process completes and I log in with the admin user account.

If I completely uninstall BOINC, this error message goes away and the boot process proceeds normally.

Looking for a stable BOINC release for Yosemite. BOINC 7.2.42 installed hangs a Yosemite boot.

Any other options?

Message 61343 - Posted: 1 Apr 2015, 15:02:44 UTC - in response to Message 61342.  

I had an answer back from the developer. He told me that this is something that Yosemite does, not BOINC. When you search for the error in a search engine -- and by the way, it's over-released legacy external boost assertions -- there are hundreds of people who have this problem.

Nowhere a definitive answer as how to solve this. It does appear to be a problem with OS X 10.10 only so far though.

The developer continues to say As long as the Mac and BOINC are running normally, I would say ignore it. But if it bothers you much, you could try removing the login startup item for BOINCManager (under System Preferences Users & Groups) and launch BOINCManager manually after login.

If you still gets the message after that, then we don't see any way that BOINC could be involved during the boot process.

Jord,

Thanks for the quick response from both you and the developer. I'll try removing it from Login Items and see what happens.

Hi Cheryl.

I ran some tests with OS 10.10.2, both with BOINC 7.4.42 installed and with it uninstalled. In both cases, I saw a huge number of
BUG in process suhelperd [xxx]: over-released legacy external boot assertions (1 total, 1 external, 0 legacy external).
message, and in both cases my Mac booted up correctly. With BOINC installed, it started up and ran as expected (though I find Yosemite extremely slow.)

In addition to removing the Login item, the only other thing I can think of is that you may have a corrupted download of BOINC, so you may want to download it again.

Other than that, i don't know what to suggest. You are the only person who has reported this problem to us.

Cheers,
--Charlie

Hi
Just fyi this version is not running well with Windows 10.
I thought someone should know. It is quite a verbose error.

Could you be more specific?
I have been running it on Windows 10 for months, without problem.

Hi,
It is possible we are on different builds. I am setting things up the way I would in win 7. I will try to attach a screen shot. I assigned a project.
The laptop I put it on could possibly be a little twitchy. I haven't ruled that out.

It is a visual fortran runtime error. I have not yet begun to play with it much.
hadcm3s_um_....... is having a lot of errors.

I will play with it. It helps that you have got it working. For that, thanks.

There are many BOINC projects. You should be more specific.

Anyway, I think I found a little info about the problem you are having. It looks to be a problem specific to the climateprediction.net project. There is an ongoing thread about it here, which you should probably participate in. They offer a workaround suggestion to disable that application type in your web prefs.

http://climateapps2.oerc.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/forum_thread.php?id=7875

So far as I know, this is not a BOINC issue. Instead, it's an application issue for that project to sort out. Also, I'm attached to that project (and 30 others), and haven't had the issue yet, but I have had several types of errors with that project; it is one of the more problematic projects, in my opinion.

Regards,
Jacob

Well Jacob your instincts were good. It is the climate project I am running. I will pursue that and you have been very helpful.
Thank you
