Kicked out of FAH?

Postby inOr » Sat Feb 20, 2021 3:20 am

When I first opened the Local folding page on my Linux Mint machine today, the title line of a project was empty and was scrolling through the page ad infinitum. I had to close the tab to get it to stop. I then found that my username had been scrubbed from 'Team' andd 'Donor' lists, leaving me with no means to troubleshoot. At this time I was registered and logged in. I then opened my Windows machine and logged in the same as from my Linux box. Voila! There I was, as if nothing had happened. Was the problem fixed? I returned to the Linux version of FAH, but it behaved just like it did before. WTH? How do I fix this without losing my points and WUs?

Welcome to Folding@Home!

Once your points go to the server, they cannot be lost on the client, really.
I found no user named inOr, but you don't actually say you fold by that name.

I am not a Linux user, so I don't know how to reinstall without the old data in Linux, but if you do, all your points at the server will reappear.

It could be that your configuration wasn't saved in Linux which is why it didn't appear while your configuration was present and saved in Windows.

Can you please post the log file? Ensure you include the first 100 lines which will inform us of what the system configuration is and what the client settings are. If you require guidance, please view this topic: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=26036

BTW, it is very rare for F@H to ban a user. I remember of a single instance where the username was banned and all points were zeroed out due to violation of EULA.

Since your post refers to Web Control cycling and not displaying information, I suspect your Linux box had not yet established a network connection outside your local network. That connection is necessary, all Web Control is on your local machine is an URL that connects and downloads a Javascript. That script can be cached in your browser, but some of the other data is read from F@h servers.
