Default Only one instance of mprime is registered

Currently running DoubleCheck=20734673,66,1, and DoubleCheck=20734733,66,1 (on Athlon64 X2 at 2800 MHz under Fedora 8), but only the first one shows in my account.
How do I proceed to get the 2nd one registered?

A few questions, are you running more than one instance?
Which version of Prime95 are you running?
Are you using the V5 server?

Two: mprime -B2 -WDesktop/GIMPS. The first execution of mprime was ./mprime during which the registration process was done.

If you mean mprime the version is 24.14

The Server is 4.0

Question

I continue this thread as a registered user.

Exponents assigned (according to my Account Report):

20734673 D 67 1587122 8.0 8.3 68.3 21-Mar-08 22:59 20-Mar-08 16:20 pantera 2800 v19/v20
41595419 * 68 0.3 60.7 73.7 28-Mar-08 08:14 CDF8D3B8A 0 v19/v20
41627801 * 68 0.1 62.9 73.9 28-Mar-08 13:07 pantera 2800 v19/v20DoubleCheck=20734733,66,1 was started when I issued the mprime -B2 command, which also created the *0001.* files for the second instance. It is still crunching along in the second core, but does not show as an assigned exponent. Curious!

I have to ask why there is no 64 bit version of mprime for linux. I spent most of my working life getting the best performance out of computer systems, so this issue does not sit very well with me.. For one thing, my system runs at 2800 MHz all the time now; before mprime it used to be at 1000 MHz most of the time, and more than 10° C cooler. If I have to contribute more to global warming please give us some more efficiency.

In the status report 20734733 shows as registered to the default account ".".
Code:
 prime      fact  current          days
exponent    bits iteration  run / to go / exp   date updated     date assigned   account ID     computer ID
-------- -- ---- ---------  -----------------  ---------------  ---------------  -------------- ------------
20734733 D   67   1588143    10.0   2.3  62.3  21-Mar-08 22:59  20-Mar-08 16:47  .              CDF8D3B8A
Maybe you have to set the user and computer ID also for the second instance of mprime. To do this you stop mprime and then start "./mprime -A1 -m" and change user information and password (under 2. Test/User Information). Maybe you also have to communicate with the server using 13. Advanced/Manual communication. (I'm not sure this will work or if the server will deny you to change the user ID.)

Thanks patrik.

I found out last night that the server did not assign it to the second CPU:

[Sun Mar 30 17:36:52 2008 - ver 24.14]
Updating computer information on the server
Sending expected completion date for M20734733: Apr 2 2008
ERROR 17: Operation not permitted on this exponent.

I removed the job from work0001.ini (id CDF8D3B8A)and inserted it after the current job in worktodo.ini (id pantera). On April 2 I should know whether pantera will take over where CDF8D3B8A left off.

I have not had the time to fiddle with primes for about 37 years, and it was pure accident which got me to this point. Here is the link: http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/mersenne.html

Once I got to GIMPS I couldn't resist.

Having perused the forums for hours since my previous post I know now that there is a 64-bit version of mprime, but as I read it, will only work on the V5 server (would not be able to migrate until present assignments are completed, am I correct?).

Thanks once again patrik. I would not have had the insight without your posting.

Just a follow-up.

M20734733 resumed on pantera where the 2nd cpu left off, so no wasted effort.

I've got the same problem.

I run mprime under Linux (Ubuntu distribution). My first execution was "./mprime", I answered all questions and it worked perfectly. Then I executed "./mprime -B2" to use the second CPU of my PC, too.
Now the situation is complicated: The first assignment was correct, my account-ID is S778911, the computer-ID C4EA8E07B and the first assignment is Doublechecking 20597039, which is correct, because my computer (2.8GHz Dual Core) runs only a few hours per day.
But with the second assignment something went wrong: MPrime used the standard settings (computer runs 24/7), and so I got LL-Testing of 33190043. That's not all: If I now do my accont report, only the first assignment is displayed, looking at "http://mersenne.org/primenet/status.txt" I have to read that 330190043 is done by the default account ".". The computer-ID C9E175C88 is the correct one.
So I tried the last two months to change this, but I wasn't successful.

Executing "./mprime -A1 -m" doesn't help, because if I want to update the new user information, I always get the following error:

Contacting PrimeNet Server.
Updating computer information on the server
Sending expected completion date for M33190043: Dec 25 2008
ERROR 17: Operation not permitted on this exponent.

dustymnt's solution isn't possible; when I finally will have completed 20597039, the assignment of 33190043 will be expired.

Can someone help me? How can I add 33190043 to my account S778911? I don't want to start with new assignments, because I already have 25,8% of Doublechecking 20597039 and 11,1% of LL-Testing 33190043.

Thanks
Klaus

Send an email to George (woltman AT alum DOT mit DOT edu), he'll probably be able to sort it out for you.

BTW, you'd probably be better off running your two copies of mprime from different folders--less chance of things getting mixed up that way.
