In the docs it says the format is
Pminus1=k,b,n,c,B1,B2

Is that an undocumented option even in the undoc.txt file?

So if I have:

Pminus1=1,2,8126149,1,11000,0

Where do I put the factor? I can't see to find an info in the docs.

Pminus1=k,b,n,c,B1,B2[,B2_start][,"factors"]

Thank you, I tried without the quotes when guessing what the format was and it caused mprime to segfault. The quotes seems to be working.

Jeff.

 2011-02-28, 11:26 #136 Jeff Gilchrist     Jun 2003 Ottawa, Canada 3·17·23 Posts That seems to be working well. I had another question. The mprime output has this at the end: Code: , E=6, We8: D2C6C8E9 While the Windows Prime95 version is different: Code: , We4: D4BDB047 What does the E=6 mean, and why is one We8 while the other is We4? Thanks, Jeff.

We4, We1, We8, etc are just shorthand version numbers of the software used.

E=6 (can also be other numbers, such as E=12, or possibly 1, 2, or 4) indicate that enough RAM was allocated to make the use of the "Brent-Suyama Extension" which can provide a slight boost to the chance of finding a factor if a relatively large amount of RAM is available. It doesn't add a whole lot, so it's not a really big deal if it's not there. Larger values are "better" (E=12 is "better" than E=6, E=6 is "better" than nothing).

This thread contains some more questions & answers about P-1 that may be of interest to you.

I've done some checking, and reducing the memory to 3GB only changed the time from about 3300 seconds, to about 3100. So no significant difference there, so I moved it back up to 6GB because at 3GB, it increased B1 and decreased B2, slightly.

I think I'll move the P-1 off of this machine, change it to another LL, and change (2) LL's, on my other machines to (2) P-1's. That will give me (4) P-1's total, instead of (3).

 2011-03-01, 06:13 #140 Primeinator     "Kyle" Feb 2005 Somewhere near M52.. 3×5×61 Posts The new release is incredible... particularly on exponents above 49M or so. Previously... exponents below this were at 92 ms per iteration on the LL and are now at 80-85 ms and sometimes as low as 75 ms. HOWEVER, exponents above this mark were previously at 119ms and are now down to about 89 (or lower) ms. This is an incredible boost in performance. Thank you!

mprime on Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit

Hello, I have Ubuntu 9.04 32-bit and I am seeing this with the v26.5 mprime:

> ./mprime -d
./mprime: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by ./mprime)

In the meantime I have downloaded mprime2511.tar.gz from the ftp site and that seems to work ok.

To update to v26.5, do I have to compile it myself? Unfortunately updating to a newer version of Ubuntu isn't an option yet for me.

Regards, Timbit.
