Server Error:can\\\'t attach shared memory.What does this mean?


Hi
Things are starting to happen, just found PC running sixtrack so our services are required again! -for the moment.

Here is a YouTube submission, describing the thruth behind LHC. First I suffered a paroxysm of rage; this man raped logic and science to its core. Second I laughed a bit after calming down, ensued by a grief/rage induced stroke.

I don\'t know if this analogy is fitting, but I\'ll try my best: If science was the Bible this man shredded it, soaked it in kerosene, set it on fire and then pissed on its ashes; he also assumes that all the knowledge in that book is somehow transferred on to him and he is able to give his professional interpretation of the contents without having ever read anything in an appropriate context.

Just watch the video. This guy is delusional, no beyond that.

This Idiot is beyond belief. I thought peolple with this mind set died out in the 1400`s maybee he thinks the world is flat and held up with elephants or something.!!!!!!!!!!!!

Previously, I ran 64-bit Vista in it\\\'s beta 2 through it\\\'s RC days, and also a 64-bit Linux. My observations are that it was faster up to the point one ran out of memory. This is to say (mind you the apps were 32-bit), things appeared snappier and more responsive.

This said, BOINC is 32-bit typically and in any case the client files are. From a scientific standpoint if they had a 64-bit client, this could result in more precision being allowable in the calculations without a performance tole on the CPU. This said, type double (64-bit floats) are probably already being used; only thing is it takes a lil more for a 32-bit proc to calculate 64-bit floats then a 64-bit proc.

Memory is an issue however, depending on how much you have. Under Linux I didn\\\'t run out of so much, but on Vista, 1 GB RAM copuld be eaten awful fast. Once it swaps, the performance drops, and the 64-bit vista did use a ton of RAM. I never looked at Vista-32 to compare. As you\\\'re running, when I ran slamd64 on this box would probably be more representative; and the memory footprint on that was lower then win64.


OK thanks for reply.
I will stay with 32bit for the time being, my box has 4gig which I think is max for a 32bit system,No nont know anything about Vista, moved to linux about 3yrs ago, What a learning curve! but thats another story.

Is there any advantage in running an O/S in 64 Bit config with the workload in coming months,I run Ubuntu/Linux at moment in 32 Bit mode.
