Hi there,

I have a Linux computer with the settings below connecting via boinc that never received any tasks and the boinc command line doesn't show any error or user message, only says "Requesting new jobs: got 0 tasks". Any ideas why?

Hello keiladias

I would have to say that computer would only be able to run SixTrack tasks here and we don't have any right now.

That machine doesn't have enough memory to even run the easy Theory tasks.

One good thing to do is get a deal on a 8GB ram stick and plug it in and then you could run Theory or the other VB tasks since you are only running one at a time with that single core.
