Message 98836 - Posted: 26 May 2020, 20:54:55 UTC

Since I haven't been able to get any response from my post at U@h, I thought I would try here.

Need some help from Linux users. I tried to attach the project from the Manager and got an authentication error. Unsuccessful.

Then tried to attach the project from the command line.
Unsuccessful.
About all I've managed to accomplish is the creation of the account_universeathome.pl_universe.xml file.

Get status or get project_urls is still only showing the Einstein project as attached projects.

The command line has offered no other status, errors or other informational messages about why I can't get the project attached. No download of the master file or anything gets attempted.

I see that there is support for aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu platform in the all_projects_list.xml file for the project so assume there is an application for aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu. I have a Nvidia Jetson Nano host which works on that platform for Einstein and used to be attached to SETI.

Can someone provide some hints or instructions on how to attach my Nano host to the project. TIA.

I know nothing about the command lines, but I control10 Ubuntu 18.04.4 machines over the LAN with a Windows 7 64-bit machine running Boinc Tasks.
I have often attached to Universe.

You just install Boinc Tasks on your Windows machine:
https://efmer.com/download-boinctasks/

Then, there are simple instructions for what to do on the Linux machine:
https://efmer.com/boinctasks-connect-to-linux-machine/

Then, in the Projects tab of Boinc Tasks, you just select "Add a project", and you are off.

Thanks for the reply Jim. No difference from trying to join from the Manager. No connection can be established.

This is an authentication issue. But without any hints as to why, I am left floundering. If I could get something to show in the logs would be helpful, but even setting http_debug is showing nothing.
[Edit]
Finally got the logs to come through with http_debug. Still don't see any reason why it won't join the project.

All I ever get is an "unable to connect error - Try again later" message and then end the join session with the Finish button.

But from the log, I am making a connection. I pass the certifications for SSL

Tried one more time with BoincTasks. Everything looks and says it was successful.
Project added successfully (Nano)
But the computer never shows up on my account.

At least it is an interesting problem. Not the usual run of the mill stuff.
It must be some protocol missing in Nano that can't send the right GUI stuff.
But after that, there is not much anyone (especially me) can do. Good luck.

EDIT: Your computer does not show up in your Universe account? That is different. Even worse. I thought you meant it did not show up locally in Boinc Tasks.

I see this one: https://universeathome.pl/universe/show_host_detail.php?hostid=563293
Isn't that it?
Otherwise there's this: https://universeathome.pl/universe/show_host_detail.php?hostid=563296

Both created the 27th of May. But seeing how the Nano has a 32bit CPU, I'd suspect it's the first one with the ARMv7 CPU.

Message 98863 - Posted: 27 May 2020, 20:33:31 UTC

Well, it all got into a big mess somehow last night. I was starting a boincmgr from /home somehow that wasn't connecting to any client. Every time I booted the Nano, it was stuck on Add a project and the basic starting files. I kept deleting all those local files and trying to start from normal /var/lib/boinc-client directory but I could never get the client to start and the Manager would not start it either.
But starting both from the command line worked.

I finally just moved everything out of boinc-client to /home/BOINC since that was the only location that would start the Manager. Somewhere along the way on one of the Add project interruptions, I got a successful connection to the project and the host was attached.

Then got both the client and Manager to autostart from the /home location so I could finally go to bed.

Moot point though. I found a post from myself to someone inquiring on how to get an ARM64 device to get work from the project. My own response said there are no applications for any active projects. The only applications that were available for ARM64 are for the deprecated Neutron Star and Black Hole formation project.

And the ARM application for BHspinv2 is only for armv6l like a Raspberry Pi 3 or lower. The Nano is a armv8 device. I did get my RPi3B+ running the BHspin tasks though.

So a pointless and wasteful exercise overall. Thanks everyone for the assistance.

Rosetta have an ARM64 app if you want to use it over there.

Thanks I guess I'll take a look at that project again. Don't know how it will work with the limited RAM on the SBC though. I have just been running the Einstein BRP4 application on the gpu for now since Seti ended. I thought I should at least try and use some of the cpu cores since only one is needed for the gpu.
