It's been literally months since I have received any significant work assignments. When I first noticed, I changed my preferences to work from all LHC jobs. This did not help.

I am wondering why this has happened, as nothing on my side has changed. Where I was once having LHC tasks in my queue all the time, I am now relegated to virtually none. And yet BOINC is asking for tasks from you many times per hour.

Please let me know what has changed. If you don't want or need my computing cycles, let me know so I can remove LHC from my project list.

ATM only ATLAS, Theory and SixTrack have work - SixTrack only occasionally.
You got work from SixTrack a few days ago.

Your resources allow you to run Theory and SixTrack.
ATLAS would need at least more RAM.

Thus it makes sense to check Theory and SixTrack and to uncheck all others.


In addition, Theory requires VirtualBox to be installed.
Otherwise you won't get any work from that subproject.

Thank you... I appreciate your response and tips. My life got complicated and this is the first chance I've had to check back...

I do have virtualbox installed

This is your computer-detail-page:
https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/show_host_detail.php?hostid=9961232

And it shows the following line:
Virtualbox (5.2.8) installed, CPU has hardware virtualization support but it is disabled



Short help:
You'll have to enable virtualization support in your computer's BIOS.


Long help:
If you still don't get Theory WUs you may go step by step through Yeti's checklist.
