 2007-06-12, 00:47 #1 Salz   Jun 2007 112 Posts mprime 25.2? I am a bit surpised as I just found mprime252alpha.tgz, mprime252osXalpha.tgz and P95V252.ZIP on http://www.mersenne.org/gimps/ Are these for real, are they version 25.2 and where is the announcement for these clients? What are the new features? Does this mean the client would run under linux now? Also I think it would be nice to at least have a changelog in these archives and not only one binary file - what is the purpose for having then in an archive at all? You just could put the gzipped binary online... Sorry for my ranting but it is hard to find any information. The link in the post "The latest client software" (sticky at the top) for newer development clients is broken, too. Please, please enlighten me. Thanks!

Those were from 3/7/07, 4/20/07, and 4/21/07. My guess is that they are all alphas, and that you shouldn't expect an announcement of them any time especially soon.

MPrime has always (as far as I know) run under linux...do you mean under Mac OS X?

These versions were special builds for either preliminary testing of multi-threaded operation or in the MAC OS X case, an alpha version so that Intel Mac users have something to run - even if it is not fully tested.

There may be a 25.3 version available soon that talks to the v4 Primenet server. I've been running it on my home box for a couple of weeks now. Despite the amount of work that has been put in to 25.3, there are virtually no new features. Version 24.14 is your best bet.

No, I meant the MPrime version 25, which should have multi threading for multi-core CPUs. Version 25.1 did not run under linux, according to Prime95 in another thread.

Well, seems I could not resist and have tested that client on Linux. It kind of runs, can't find my username on the Server but uses 200% CPU instead of 100% as version 24.14 does. But it only works if you start it interactively with -m and choose to continue testing. Starting without -m exits immediately. With 25.3 probably on the doorstep, do you want a detailed report or should I wait and test 25.3?

Please wait. There have been some Linux (and Mac OS X) fixes.

(at 99.9% in the second test) Code: Disregard last error. Result is reproducable and thus not a hardware problem. For additional safety, redoing iteration using a slower, more reliable method. Continuing from last save file ... Resuming PRP test of ... at bit 342542 (99.99%) Strange thins....

That "feature" seems to have been deleted.

George,

I will try this, this weekend!

 2007-07-26, 09:02 #11 ValerieVonck     Mar 2004 Belgium 7×112 Posts Geoff, Version 25.3 runs correct. Only thing I have to remark: when I push ctrl-c & ctrl-d a couple of times, when seeing "trying to stop worker threads", the menu seems to scroll by in an infinite loop. Regards C.
