As a Team we came in 3rd. Good job everyone.

I say last ditch method is to use Synaptic Package Manager set to draw from the official Ubuntu packages. I use that to install BOINC with no probs in Mint Mate 18. May work for Virtual Box.

Can't say I blame you, but the points and the additional access to jobs were nothing to sneeze at. It's unfortunate that things aren't more stable, but in the grand scheme of things, its amazing they are as stable as they are...

I have to assume there is an equivalent directory on windows hosts that could be causing some of the strange, system-wide (per user) problems with vbox.

Finally got around to trying this. It threw a few errors when I tried to do it with old version installed so I said screw it, uninstalled then it went fine. Fired up VirtualBox it then asked to download new extensions... Did that.

Rebooted pc because I'm silly like that.

Now the darn thing still says VirtualBox not installed.

Edit: tried restarting the BOINC client and it continues to give the error message.

If you use the code I put above it will limit the Plank app to 2 cores (i.e. the avg_cpus tag). The app_config.xml file goes into into the cosmology project folder. After restarting the client, it should use 2 cores instead of 12 for you. For Windows its in C:\Program Data\Boinc\Data\projects\cosmology.com\ ... I am just doing that from memory. Not sure of the exact because I am already at work and not in front of my rigs. tongue.gif

This link explains how to configure the files and such. https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Client_configuration

EDIT: made it more concise

Awesome, thanks. Will try it tonight.
