I got a nice load of work during those 30 hours.

The work that appeared on 27 November is also
crunching away happily.

Version 4.43 running in console mode.

Boinc Manager starts, then stops due to failure to connect
to the server.

Three units have been returned by a computer running Linux, but the results database still shows them as outstanding.

Is there a particular problem with the Linux client in this regard?

Sometimes the dice roll differently, and none of
my machines get any work out of the current set.

Rough experimentation led me to set the cache size
at 3 days as being the optimal point on my work curve.

Crunching on SETI, LHC, Einstein, and Climate Prediction.

Zone Alarm shows no continuous activity for BOINC 4.19.

Zone Alarm did show continuous access of the Internet for
BOINC 4.45. Uninstall and reinstall of BOINC 4.45 has the
same pattern of continuous access recurring.

Leaving BOINC 4.45 installed but shut down eliminates the
continuous access symptom. It did not stop the blockage
of Mozilla from loading.

BOINC 4.45 installs with a local host connection.

Zone Alarm shows continuing activity on the DSL line that
appears to block all other programs from accessing the
Internet.

Clicking on the icons for both Mozilla and IE returns
a busy mouse cursor for a few seconds, reverting to the
standard mouse pointer cursor.

OS is Windows 2000, 512 MB of RAM.

BOINC 4.45 will not allow either Internet Explorer or Mozilla
Firebird to work.

I'm back to BOINC 4.19 and a working browser.

Got 4.45 running. No problems.

Thanks.

BOINC 4.45 asks that BOINC 4.19 be uninstalled.

Does uninstalling BOINC 4.19 clear out the projects folder?

I don't want to lose work in progress and work in queue.

All previous work on the Linux machine went through the steps
automatically.

This is why I'm asking.
