Default PrimeNet error 7

Hi guys! I'm trying to use mprime on Arch but whenever i start the program and i try to communicate with the server i get this error. Beyond that, it looks like my account doesn't know about this cpu.
This is what i get when i start the program with mprime -m

That's strange. ss is supposed to be a security salt, i.e. a random number.

Can you post the output of ls? One possibility is that your communications spool file has been corrupted.

If i type ls ./ i get "Data Desktop local.txt prime.spl prime.txt". Here are the files generated by mprime.

Why did you pass an argument to ls? And you didn't copy the full output, for I don't see the prime.log that you attached in the ls output.

The above is irrelevant fortunately; if what I threw out as a possibility is in fact a problem, the solution is to rm prime.spl and then try running ./mprime -c (or I suppose ./mprime -m would work fine too) again.

Unluckily the problem is still there. Here is the new log file.

I didn't copy the full output because i'm dumb (lol)

Instead there's no real reason i gave an argument to ls for

I just looked at the raw IIS logs at the attempted communications. the ss= parameter doesn't show up in the requests at all.

There were 17 requests made to the API, all of them were of type "uc" (update computer info).

I think the clue is this part that specifies the client version:
a=Linux64,Untrusted+Prime95,v28.7,build+1

The "untrusted" means this wasn't an official build, it was built from source by someone else so it'll be missing the security salt/hash.

LaurV: thanks for the support but it hasn't been useful for me. I'm grateful anyway

Madpoo: should i download the source from the official site and try to build the package by myself?

That won't help.

Only binaries produced by George have the "Secret Sauce" code which generates the "ss=" hash.

I'll try the version specific for my system then (i mean the one i can download from there http://www.mersenne.org/ftp_root/gim...linux64.tar.gz).

EDIT: it's working. However i would like to install it opportunely (at the moment it is in my /home and all the files are in the same folder). Any tips? A link would do. I know that i'm off topic and i apologize in advance...

EDIT: i modified the PKGBUILD and managed to install the program as i wanted. Thanks a lot, everyone!
