I don't find it hard at all to see, maybe it's different on Linux. On Windows it looks about like this when it's unreserving:
Code:
C:\Files\Prime\LLRNet>llrnet -c

C:\Files\Prime\LLRNet>Running 'init.lua' ...
LLR network client 0.9b7 started
Based on LLR version 3.5.0
LLRMain started
Cancelling : 1743/585603 (10000000000000:M:1:2:258)
StartServiceCtrlDispatcher returns 0
Successfully connected to server!
LOGGED ON
[04/29/09 08:27:34]
Result 1743/585603 succesfully sent to the server.
Result 1743/585603 succesfully sent to the server.

LOGGING OUT
Win32Exit
and like this when it's done:
Code:
C:\Files\Prime\LLRNet>llrnet -c

C:\Files\Prime\LLRNet>Running 'init.lua' ...
LLR network client 0.9b7 started
Based on LLR version 3.5.0
LLRMain started
StartServiceCtrlDispatcher returns 0
No more job to cancel !
Win32Exit
One note though: after running llrnet -c it doesn't make the C:\path\to\llrnet\> prompt reappear, but it does finish and return you to the command line as you'd expect, so you can retype llrnet -c or press up (to make it recall the last command you typed) and press enter and do that until you see "No more job to cancel !" instead of something like "Result 1743/585603 succesfully sent to the server."
Still, a batch might be easier for you, so do whatever you want to do.

 2009-04-29, 13:44 #35 mdettweiler A Sunny Moo     Aug 2007 USA (GMT-5) 3×2,083 Posts Yeah, that works too. I was mainly suggesting a batch file as an alternative to a GUI shortcut, which would open a new command window, run "llrnet -c", and when LLRnet dumps back to the command prompt it would exit. Though, of course, users who are familiar with batch files are probably quite comfortable with using the command line directly, anyway, so this point is rather moot.

Yeah, I agree that it'd be rather difficult to see whether there was something there or not in a direct shortcut, and in that case a batch would be better. Even to someone comfortable with the command line, a batch could make the process easier, especially with multiple cores and several reserved WUs (work units, i.e. numbers to test).

To run sr2sieve in Linux, all the commands are identical except that you'd put the ./ before everything on the command line, i.e.: ./sr2sieve -P xxex -i xxxx.txt (etc.) Last fiddled with by gd_barnes on 2009-05-04 at 08:02

In addition, there are two other ways to start the client after you have initially loaded a file into it:

./llr will skip the menu and directly run the client in "quiet mode", i.e. with no screen output;
and
./llr -d will skip the menu and directly run the client, this time with screen output.

This is a bit more labour intensive so I'm now wondering why I do this. The ones I am waiting for are in the first category where a slow machine or large file is allocated to a machine & is just going to take a while to finish. I wondered about taking them off & finishing them more quickly but I can't really be bothered as they will finish soon enough anyway. I guess that's the point of the second method so you don't get 1 machine stuck with weeks of work when the others have finished.
i dont know how your machines are set up but would a personal prpnet server help you?

Yes, I'm sure it would. Can some tell me how to go about setting it up?

Thanks.

http://home.roadrunner.com/~mrodenkirch/prpnet_2.1.5.zip (this download includes the client, server, and source and is the most current release; I've heard a 2.2.0 is on its way, but is not available yet)
It's fairly self-explanatory. To use LLR/NewPGen files, replace the NewPGen header with "ABC $a*2^$b-1" and name it prpserver.candidates. If you need specific help with anything, ask and hopefully someone will know what to do.
