Anyone else having issues?


Sep 20, 2010
Sorry if this has already been posted in here. I typically don't venture out of GenMay but didn't think it needed to be posted there.

So I have been quietly folding off and on for a while now and I got home from work yesterday and notice that something wasn't right. In my work queue I see Update_Core and then my other slot that appears to be running fine.

So I check my log and it appears that my client keeps wanting to download Core_15 and has problems accessing the core package then tries to download again.

My question is is anyone else having this issue, and if so what did you do to fix it (keep in mind I don't know too much about folding and tweaks that can be done to things.). Or if things can't be fixed right now then any other suggestions.

Folding is kind of a heat source for me in the winter and I am getting rather cold so the sooner this got fixed then the sooner I would return my body to normal operating temperature.

Here is a copy of my log if that helps:

PG are having problems with the gpu server's, its going to take a day or so to fix, current recommendation is to pause your gpu until its fixed,

As for Genmay, most people don't venture in:D

Yep, you're probably encountering the same problem I did yesterday. I posted about it here:

If you can get a hold of the new core from somewhere and replace the old one with it, you will be able to download new WUs. That's what I did and I'm currently folding.

Short for "its the weekend and Stanford has no weekend support". Raise a stink on the fah forum site. If enough people say the 'Emperor has not clothes', maybe they will clean up the dead elephant in the corner.
