It seems that sometime around V5.8.11 or 12 all my Linux based AMD machines changed from "AuthenticAMD AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor ..." to just "AuthenticAMD". The ClientState.xml files still show the correct thing, as does BoincManager and BoincView, but SETI and Einstien show just "AuthenticAMD".

I have exactly the same thing, but strangely only on Fedora Core 6 (older FC 5 and FC 4, Mandrake and RedHat installations updated to BOINC 5.8.11 / 5.8.15 did not exhibit this bug to me)

I tried updating FC 6 to latest Packages and Kernel, but that did not change the situation.

It's annoying to have Systems going 'incognito'.
