I agree with Flatlander.

Gary & Max, it is really hard to find the most up-to-date version of the NPLB application software. Searching through this thread one finds the "old" GUI version (that still seems to work OK but is apparently not the fastest version). Also there is the fast version but this is confusing as the version with a higher version number is for Linux and a 0.01 lower version is for Windows 32-bit. More than two dozen of my computers are 64-bit and on first inspection it seems as if there is no NPLB software for Windows 64-bit operating systems. (With insider knowledge we know that the NPLB software is 32-bit and is capable of running under 64-bit Windows, and that there is no speed increase when running 64-bits but to the noobie they wouldn't know all this).

We need a clear link to the software and to instructions for how to run it on multi-core CPUs.

Indeed...I knew the first post of this thread hadn't been updated in a while but looking at it just now I see it was last edited in July 2009(!)--well before the latest LLRnet clients came out, not to mention PRPnet.

I've been meaning to overhaul the "getting started" instructions here for a while...we have pretty decent instructions for PRPnet but not for the newest LLRnet. I wrote some how-to's for the latest clients over in the TPS project subforum when I helped them set up some LLRnet and PRPnet servers a few months back; with slight modifications, those would work quite well for NPLB.

I'm adding that to my to-do list right now. :smile: (Thanks for the heads-up!)

Can someone post a link to the latest Windows (64bit) LLRnet client please.
I'm chasing my tail here. :wink::grin:

Here's the latest Windows 32/64-bit client :wink:: [url]http://www.rieselprime.de/dl/LLRnetV073.zip[/url]

Merci. I'll add my new lappy to the rally shortly. :smile:

Great thanks.

Karsten pointed out that we had a dead link in the post. It has now been corrected. The line is 3rd from the bottom and says "For LLRnet installation, please see [URL="http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=13165"][COLOR=#000080]LLRnet supports LLR V3.8 and higher[/COLOR][/URL].". Can you also make that change in the website front page?


Thanks again,
Gary

Fixed

I have made several updates to the first posting here, mainly due to the fact that the project is headed in a PRPnet direction now. They are as follows:

1. In the "Sieved files have been prepared" section, tweeked the bullet points to show which kind of server is running which drives. Also added info. about the 6k drive.

2. In the "Two main goals" section, corrected some grammar in one of the bullet points.

3. Towards the bottom, added links to info. about running PRPnet servers.

Dave, can you tweak the NPLB home page at [URL]http://www.noprimeleftbehind.net/stats/index.php[/URL] ? Thanks.


Gary
