Default Changing worktype

Hi

First, sorry for my english.


I've built a computer this summer ( a dual-proc L5408 Xeon @ 2,13Ghz) for doing Trial Factoring
but I'm a 2 month newbie in GIMPS.



When i started mprime on OpenSuse for the first time :

the program automaticaly started 4 workers on Double-Check work type

But now, I have to wait 184 days for the LL results

I would prefer assign this computer on TF worktype


- I've unreserved the 4 exponents
- I've stopped the workers
- changed the workers worktype (in mprime and in my mersenne.org account ) from Double-Check to Trial Factoring
- I've restarted workers


but the workers are still computing Double-Check

How many time i have to wait ?
Or what is the method for change worktype during LL tests

Thanks

Caffreys

Are the 4 double check assignments which you unreserved still listed in the file worktodo.txt ?
If so, remove these lines (they will start with DoubleCheck= ...) from this text file and restart mprime.
