Default Prime95 version 26.3

Version 26.3 is ready for testing. This version should be safe to use. This version fixes the few serious bugs that were reported for 26.2.

Known bugs and fixes:

1) The length 160K x87 FFT crashes. Fixed in 26.3 build 2.
2) The length 4M FFT crashes on Northwood and Willamette Pentium 4. Fixed in 26.3 build 3.
3) On a brand new install, the default on hyperthreaded machines was 2 threads per worker. This was slower for most users. In the next release, the default will be 1 thread per worker.
4) Testing 522*928^24576-1 in 64-bit executables crashes. Fixed in 26.4.
5) You cannot edit the affinity settings from the Linux menus. Fixed in 26.4.
6) Running a multi-threaded torture test on AMD machines failed. Fixed in 26.4.
7) Setting a specific FFT length in worktodo.ini sometimes selects the next larger FFT length. This would most commonly occur when an exponent being tested is near the FFT crossover point and a specific FFT length is automatically chosen based on the roundoff error in the first 1000 iterations. Fixed in 26.4.
8) Multi-line additional information from the Primenet server was not parse properly. Only the first line was parsed. Thus, when successfully completing a double-check only the successful completion was written to prime.log. The cpu credit amount was not written to prime.log. Fixed in 26.4.
9) When doing PRP on non-base-2 numbers the time estimate in Test/Status was off by a factor of log2(base). Fixed in 26.4.
10) On a 32-bit Mac, some FFT implementations were missing. Fixed in next release.

I've downloaded and installed this version because it fixes the ubuntu trial factoring problem, however primenet says this version is untrusted. I get an error 9. untrusted version How do I convince primenet this version is ok? TIA

That problem goes away eventually. I've no idea why it happens.

26.3 has found a factor, so the problem with it not reporting found factors to the server under ubuntu 10.04 is fixed.


However I had a i7 920 and mprime 26.3 will only recognise 4 workers, whereas the old 25.11 had no problem recognising all 8 threads.

I read the undocumented.txt file and added the number of cpus and hyperthreading=2 lines to the local.txt file, but it has no effect.

mprime adds the line oldcpuspeed=2699 for my processor as well, even if I already have the cpuspeed line in local.txt

the line computerID= was blank, so I tried to add a computer name so it would show up in the reports, but this has also had no effect.

When I upgraded to 26.3, I kept the old prime.txt file, but all the other files are new either from the zip file or created by 26.3.

Any help appreciated.

1. All that I have read here and experienced suggests that hyperthreading does NOT really double your number of CPUs and it is almost always best to only use 4 workers and then experiment with whether or not you want to use 2 CPUs with any of the workers.

2. I have only ever set the ComputerId= using the GUI
- Test
- Primenet...
- Optional Computer Name

Does anyone know if the 32-core limitation has been removed?

Thanks, I've ran the benchmark without any problems. Need to run it a little later when I can stop doing everything to get some better timings.

I don't think so but I would be interested in that as well.
