Greetings.
I can not find a requirement webpage for the LHC requirements.
I did
- set BIOS VM setting
- reinstall BOINC with VBOX
- successfully run an Atlas WU.
But since I could not find out what the wu did, I cancelled - and restarted.
This time, I will try sixtrack - without VBOX.
But I see:
Mon 28 Feb 2022 01:03:25 PM EST | LHC@home | Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
Mon 28 Feb 2022 01:03:25 PM EST | LHC@home | Requesting new tasks for CPU and AMD/ATI GPU
Mon 28 Feb 2022 01:03:26 PM EST | LHC@home | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Mon 28 Feb 2022 01:03:26 PM EST | LHC@home | No tasks sent
Mon 28 Feb 2022 01:03:26 PM EST | LHC@home | No tasks are available for SixTrack
Mon 28 Feb 2022 01:03:26 PM EST | LHC@home | No tasks are available for sixtracktest
Mon 28 Feb 2022 01:03:26 PM EST | LHC@home | Message from server: VirtualBox is not installed

So, is VBOX really required for sixtrack WUs?

Thanks, Jay

SIxtrack does not need VBox. The messages is shown because sixtrack tasks are not available just now, so Boinc suggests to run other subprojects which all need VBox or Linux for native science apps. Lately sixtrack has only been available maybe once a day and only maybe 50 000 ... 100 000 at a time. That amount won't last long and if your computer doesn't request tasks at the right time you may miss them.

Just downloading some sixtracktest tasks. It has been a long time since I saw them last time. Not showing yet on the server status page but I've received about 100 on 2 hosts..
