I wonder if they will choose the same project...?
As it turns out, they couldn't if they wanted to this time. Primegrid isn't on their sprint list.

Or did you mention the possibility to throw us off the scent :lol:

Hi all

I have made contact with the Project Admin at the randomly selected project for Sprint #5

Every league has the same project during each sprint, no matter which League each Team is in.

I await confirmation that their server will be able to cope with the expected high number of task downloads once the Sprint starts.

Hi all

The 5th FB Sprint starts tomorrow (18th April) at 10:00 UTC and runs until 21st April at the same time.

No issues are expected (according to the project admins) :-)

Tim,

as the message-boards of Gerasim are not available, could you ask the Admins why their projekt only works with BOINC-Clients up to 7.20.x ?

Newer Clients (7.24.x) can not get work, the message in the Logfile is:

Scheduler request to https://gerasim.boinc.ru/sched/gsm.sched failed: Failure when receiving data from the peer

Thanks in Advance

Hiya

I would be happy to pass on the message.

HOWEVER: I have one host running Gerasim right now, and it uses the Windows version 7.24.1 (x64) of BOINC Manager. And this is working correctly and processing both CPU and GPU (on NVidia) tasks AND it is earning credits on the Gerasim project website.

https://gerasim.boinc.ru/users/viewResu ... userid=237

So, it could be that your Gerasim installation might a problem. Can you try resetting AND removing Gerasim within BOINC Manager and see what happens when you re-add the project? Make sure also, that you have no app_info.xml file remaining in the Gerasim project directory.
