Like many of us i have my share of pending workunits.
This workunit is different. The other 4 computers that received it have got credit, my result is still pending.
Is there an explanation for this?

The average forum user can only speculate:
- The result could be different from other results - there's some extra text on the result page.
"(boinc_init() 4.65
boinc_init() 4.65
boinc_finish(0)"

- it could be the boinc server is borked.

- it could be the boinc client is borked.

If your result is different from the Intel and other AMD results, then one of the admin's might be able to verify that.
Are you running Boinc 4.65?
There's more recent versions at http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

I'm not the LHC Alex. Just a number cruncher like everyone else here.

I noticed the extra text, I don't know where the 4.65 comes from.I'm running Boinc client version 5.8.15 - this is not the most recent version, but recent enough i think.
If the result differs to much it should be marked invalid.
I just don't like it to be pending :-)

I noticed the extra text, I don't know where the 4.65 comes from.

Could be the internal version number of the Sixtrack application, even though it says it used 4.66

And there's the difference, you're the only one on Linux who crunched that one. The rest who got credit were using Windows XP. I don't know if LHC uses homogeneous redundancy on its tasks, but if they do, that means you can wait till eternity for two other Linux machines to crunch that one.

Otherwise it's just the bug that cropped up at other projects as well, where tasks crunched by either OS would get credit while the other OS wouldn't get it.

I have also noticed this on my results page. The last returnee of IR of 5 has a pending credit, common on all results.
