Message 10979 - Posted: 5 Jul 2011, 14:59:48 UTC

6/07/2011 12:51:33 AM BURP Message from server: SunflowerBlender (Linux) _("is not available for") Microsoft Windows running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU.

I get this message on some of my machines. How do I fix it?

This particular PC has an AMD 1090T X6 (hex core) CPU, Win 7 ultimate 64-bit OS and 12GB RAM. HDD space is set to 120GB disk space in the BOINC Advanced settings tab.

there is nothing to fix, it's the stupid boinc manager.

here is my log:

you can't say boinc: DO NOT request work for gpu. even if you disable gpu usage, it tries to get work for it:)

Is there any Admin response to my original question? I am seeking CPU work.

Last time I checked, Windows is not Linux.

It's related to the fact that there are more Windows hosts than Linux; part of the verification process requires that all iterations of a particular work unit are done on the same OS. Thus, if we're towards the end of a particular session and the only WUs being issued are make-up ones for Linux hosts that didn't report in time, you will get Linux-only WUs until the next session is distributed.

Baracutio got it just right, it is a peculiarity of the BOINC scheduler. It lets you know that you cannot run the Linux applications on Windows (well, duh?) and then proceeds to hand you the right kind of work (or no work if the queue is empty for your kind of work).
