Issues downloading cores on Debian Unstable

Postby CalcProgrammer1 » Thu Jan 19, 2017 7:06 pm

I installed fahcore/client 7.4.4 on my Debian Unstable box with an A8-3870K APU. It gets stuck downloading the core binary with the error "Exception: Failed reading core package header" and fails in a loop no matter if I have GPU or CPU configured. If I try to wget the URL provided, it successfully downloads the core, but it does force HTTPS rather than HTTP. Any idea what's going on? I will provide the full log when I'm at my PC, I'm remoted in from my phone and can't get copy/paste working.

Issues downloading cores on Debian Unstable

Postby autogrog » Thu Jan 19, 2017 7:33 pm

I am getting this error 100% of the time the client attempts to run a Core_a7 WU. This is an otherwise rock solid workstation. Is there any way to not get these WU's assigned until the issues are resolved?

No.
Let's just resolved the issue.

To resolve this issue, we need to understand the error "Exception: Failed reading core package header" which suggests that there's a corrupt file or a permissions problem or an internet problem associated with web.stanford.edu/~pande/Linux/AMD64/Core_a7.fah.

Can you open http://web.stanford.edu/~pande/Linux/AMD64/Core_a7.fah in your browser? (You don't need your browser to actually download it ... FAHClient needs to.]

I notice that you're not using the default directories for FAH data files. What's the content and permissions of /home/me/smpv7/cores and it's subdirectories?
NOTE: you other folks, start in the directory tree listed as CWD: near the top of the log.

Is this client running in a virtual machine?

1. I can open http://web.stanford.edu/~pande/Linux/AMD64/Core_a7.fah in my browser with no errors.
2. There was an execute bit not set on FahCore_a7 that I corrected; must now wait to see if this was the probvlem.
3. The client is running on the native machine.

Thanks for the help.
