Maybe quoting the specific error message would provide more answers and less speculation.

Windows 10 v2004 Build 19041.508.

Just in case you did not read any of the prior, this is Ubuntu on Windows. It is a console window and nothing more. Providing a password using sudo solves the problem.

sudo ./mprime -d
Perhaps this is the normal way of starting it on the first go-around after opening the console.

I stopped it, leaving the console window open, and restarted it without sudo. The exact verbiage is "No certification assignment available." This relates to PRP. With sudo, it doesn't display this. This suggests mprime is unable to read "prime.txt" and "local.txt" without me providing the password again. Simply, it falls back on it's default settings. I thought I had the permissions set right. Apparently not. Maybe I am expecting too much.

I don't mind using sudo as long as everything works properly, which it does. Using mprime is an excellent alternate for Prime95, for me...

Ubuntu version matters; WSL version matters. It's much more than just a console window on Win10. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/wsl2-index

Sometimes a PRP proof is available for verification, and sometimes not. Most of mine get done by Ben Delo.

Ubuntu 2004.2020.812.0. WSL2 requires a manual update, according to the link above, which I have not done. It was not my intent to degrade it. I can only go by what I see.

Feature request: A news button in the client. The user clicks it if there is "something new to read". All it does is opens the home page where the news is posted. The magic is that the Prime95 client checks for news occasionally and maybe puts an icon in the toolbar or something. In any case, this option is implemented in whatever way possible to be non-intrusive.

(If we were in charge, we'd have a Twitter-like 144-ish character "news" line printed in the client log window at a user-defined number of iterations, or maybe at startup. With an undoc.txt opt-out switch.)

Parallel to this feature could be a version check. Perhaps if there is no recent news it could show Current version: 30.3b6, your version: 24.5 (8.4 years old) or similar.

I will simply say that the time estimates in Test -> Status seem to be a lot more accurate than in the past.

Don't know if this is a bug or not, but I'm getting this from an EC2 instance with AVX-512 FFT length 2800K, Pass1=640, Pass2=4480, clm=1, 12 threads:

Quote:
[Worker #1 Sep 15 20:46] Iteration: 49610000 / 53591537 [92.57%], ms/iter: 1.127, ETA: 01:14:46
[Worker #1 Sep 15 20:46] Possible hardware errors have occurred during the test!
[Worker #1 Sep 15 20:46] 9 ROUNDOFF > 0.4 of which 7 were repeatable (not hardware errors).
[Worker #1 Sep 15 20:46] Confidence in final result is fair.
For what it's worth, mprime choose a length of 2880K for 53903081, so I suspect it may be being too aggressive with the FFT selection?
