Message 81583 - Posted: 26 Sep 2017, 4:59:49 UTC

I have used BOINC forever, without problems. In the last few days it's been complaining that it cannot connect to the client. Manager reports "disconnected" and screen saver says "BOINC not running". I tried to update to the latest version (7.8.2), installation went fine but same problem.

Running macOS Sierra (10.12.6).

My projects are climateprediction.net and SETI@home.

Below is the log (/Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/stdoutdae.txt), in case it helps.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Your symptoms are exactly the same as several other users running climateprediction.net on Linux or OS X.

See explanations and workrounds in the thread BOINC client crashes immediately at startup (macOS 10.12.6)

(This thread used to refer to version 7.8.2 in the title, but we've verified that the problem isn't version-specific)

Looks like you posted the same piece of log multiple time, cut off at running benchmarks. Sure interested to know what happens afterwards, which you can find in the STDOUTDAE.TXT file located in Data directory: /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data

Crashing and restarting at the point where the last item written to the event log is 'Running CPU benchmarks' is exactly the symptom we discovered in the CPDN batch 658 reports last week - see the thread I linked previously.
