It's been more than a year since my Boinc application downloaded any work units from CERN. Am I the only one unable to?

You have to enable Hardware-Acceleration,
AMD-V for AMD or VT-X for Intel in BIOS.
Otherwhise only Sixtrack is possible (Out of work atm).

Depends what work you have done. Atlas (linux native or virtualbox) tasks are back since a week or two. https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/atlas_job.php

The other projects like theory and CMS look like they had steady work too https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/server_status.php

Sixtrack the easy to run work(no need to install virtual box or the stuff you need for native) is in a limbo since last year cause they develop a new version of if that is internally already used and will get work once it is ready for boinc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QLk6y2WNGs

No idea how long it will take till they are ready but at least they are working on it https://github.com/xsuite/xboinc/releases quite some changes 2 weeks ago.

The thread where updates are posted to xtrackhttps://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=5902


If you are trying to get virtualbox work, the page of your Computer claims "Virtualbox (7.0.8) installed, CPU does not have hardware virtualization support" https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/show_host_detail.php?hostid=10837262
Maybe it got disabled by a Bios update or so?

And the checklist for virtualbox tasks https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=4161#29359

there are CMS tasks in the download queue, but for more than a week they are all failing after about 20 minutes. So far, the project people obviously have not been able to get the problem solved :-(
