1) Message boards : News : Windows communication failure: temporary workaround (Message 105707)

Look for other copies of the ca-bundle.crt file in the host other than the only needed one in the BOINC folder. Those are the ones that keep BOINC from connecting. Either remove or replace/edit them.

Just to note I had a version of BOINC installed from Jan of 2020 and worked fine until I updated at the end of September so the ca-bundle.crt that was installed at the end of last month caused my issue. They need to update the Client Software as well. I downloaded my version on the 27th of September.
2) Message boards : GPUs : Two projects on one GPU? (Message 93886)

I have the same question.
I'm running an RTX2060, with an Einstein@home CPU+GPU task.
The GPU part only taxes 80W, or 50% of my GPU.
I added my apps_config.xml file in the folder with this content:

<app_config>
   [<app>
      <name>Einstein@home</name>
      <max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent>
      <gpu_versions>
          <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
      </gpu_versions>
    </app>]
</app_config>


however, now I'm seeing only 40Watts usage.

So I changed the <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage> value to 1, but without success.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Should be more like the below:
<app_config>
     <app>
         <name>hsgamma_FGRPB1G</name>
     <gpu_versions>
         <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
         <cpu_usage>0.2</cpu_usage>
      </gpu_versions>
    </app>
    <app>
       <name>hsgamma_BRP4G</name>
    <gpu_versions>
        <gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
        <cpu_usage>0.2</cpu_usage>
    </gpu_versions>
   </app>
</app_config>
3) Message boards : Teams : How Do You Join a Team (Message 90839)
Posted 31 Mar 2019 by Profile bcavnaugh
Post:
The BOINC Wide Team is a team description page that will be imported by BOINC projects, so you have to make or edit the team just once. People can join the team at the project in the normal way.

As has been said, we don't have teams. There are no credits to be had here, so no need for teams. That you can still find them is because, since we use the normal BOINC backend software, we had them in the past, they're just deactivated. Afaik you cannot join them, edit them or do anything else with them.

Thank you for this update!

It can be a pain when you make a change and press the Enter Key and yet your changes never happen.

"Grcpool is the account manager for Gridcoin, and they've taken the Account Manager concept, stripped it of anything they didn't want, and that's what you have to work with to enter their pool."
"We understand that you come to these forums to ask for help about it, but that's something we cannot give. We do not support Gridcoin or any of its tools.
We respectfully request that you take problems with these to their website, forums or other means of communication."

Thank you for Posting this here "Jord is on Vacation" about this issue.

I have two accounts and both are no longer working.
Thanks for any heads up,

Post:
I upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr on two rigs and give up because I too could not get any GPU Projects to start up, they would download the abort on starting.
NVIDIA GPU test was a GTX 550Ti and a GTX 660Ti.
Failed projects Collatz Conjecture, GPUGrid, and MilkyWay@Home

Went back to 12.04 and back to running GPU Projects

Sorry forgot to say what version on BOINC 7.2.42
