Update: Sixtrac V4.66 on windows 98 with ATI Radeon 7200 graphics. The drivers were updated while LHC was down. I am able to show graphics from the work tab, but the screen saver still fails to start. The screen is blank with the "measuring system performance" line appearing briefly every 5 seconds.

I will wait as long as it takes them. I want to know if the 10mb ATI driver update fixes the graphics problems I was having with LHC.

The problem is in the screen saver activation as clicking show graphics from the work tab works perfectly. After upgrading to Boinc V4.25, the Boinc loading screensaver box appears and the the screen goes blank and every 30 seconds the "Measuring system performance 5 seconds remaining" blinks on the screen. I have an ati 7200 radeon and have varied all of the OpenGl settings and no combination of settings seem to be able help. Note: all of the other projects screensavers RUN perfectly, only the LHC saver is failing.

Yes Paul, I had this happen with every project on the new Manager versions that hadn't gotten their app files signed. Luckily I'm on a dial-up connection so that it didn't blow thru too many units. Once the project's app files got their digital signatures everything calmed back down.

Just a note to let you know that I am having the same problem on my windows98 system. The screensaver either goes directly to a blank screen or shows the graphic but goes to blank before the 5 second loading countdown finishes. The system does not lock up though when an action canceling the screensaver occurs.

Rom had accidently removed a function call, this results in the above memory corruption in V4.22, it has been fixed in V4.23. This occasionally happens with developement builds.

LHC@home - 2004-09-27 18:08:10 - Couldn't read master page for LHC@home: error -113

This is the rather cryptic line that boinc prints out when it can not reach the internet. Since this is a new box connection and all the other boxes worked, suggest you check this ones connections again.
