OK, did that...

awk: line 2: function strftime never defined


The scripts used to control LHC native tasks expect gawk to be used.
It looks like this computer is using mawk instead.
Solution: install gawk and make sure the awk link points to gawk




What is 'awk" and what is gawk and mawk?

If I disable native in my preferences I too get near immediate computation errors...

I too am experiencing ATLAS tasks failing after approximately 10 minutes. I just saw over a half dozen that did that.

Looking at the task details I found this

"Stderr output

Interesting. Whatever is wrong with your computer ID: 10555784 has now spread to Penguin's host(s) too. You guys on the same LAN? Exchange files?

Same error msg here after a day of crunching. Happens on Win10 and Win7 with lastest vbox and I did downgrade to 5.1.30 on the win7 machine, testing it now. Win10 machine will be downgraded now too. Stopping boinc and restarting works, for about 4%, then stops again. Will see what happens with a downgrade on the win10 machine now.
