Message 137 - Posted: 29 Jan 2008, 17:45:18 UTC

Attached the project to an 64-bit Vista Machine.
Running the 64-bit boinc client.

Attaching works.
Getting work works as well.

But all WU\'s give an error shortly after they started.

I have not tried anything on 64 Vista.
Could you check a few things out
Is there an unzipped sbcl1.0.9 directory in the MM@Home projects directory?
if there is:
what happens if you:
open cmd
cd to that dir
type sbcl --core sbcl1.0.9.core

The directory is actualy there with 2 files in it :
\"sbcl.core\" and \"sbcl.exe\"

29/01/2008 18:17 <DIR> .
29/01/2008 18:17 <DIR> ..

29/08/2007 06:20 1.808.651 sbcl.exe

Result of the command (copy/paste) :

C:\\Program Files\\BOINC\\projects\\MindModeling.org_beta\\sbcl1.0.9>sbcl --core sbcl
1.0.9.core
validation of reserved space too short.
VirtualAlloc: 0x1e7.
ensure_space: failed to validate 1044480 bytes at 0x02100000
(hint: Try \"ulimit -a\"; maybe you should increase memory limits.)

Good testing!
That definitely showed there to be an issue with sbcl on 64 Vista.
I don\'t know what the fix is yet though? If we could get [url=http://sbcl.sourceforge.net\"]sbcl to work everything else should be O.K.

It seems to be a very common problem, not only on 64 bit.

Some recommend to limit memory usage using \"--dynamic-space-size 128\" (on some boards they posted other values)

The \"core\" parameter was incomplete I think.

sbcl --core sbcl1.0.9.core --dynamic-space-size 128

(the full core filename has to be given)

Right now MindModeling@Home is not working on any win64 OS.
The reason for this is that Steel Bank Common Lisp is not working.


If any one can figure out a way to get SBCL to run on a win64 machine, it would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps attempting different values for
--dynamic-space-size 256
--dynamic-space-size 512
--dynamic-space-size 768
--dynamic-space-size 1024
...


Thanks,
--Jack

Looks like increasing the Heap isn\'t going to help
It may need to be less

However a new SBCL version has just been released for windows

Anyone what to give it a try on a Win64 computer?
http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?groupname=sbcl&filename=sbcl-1.0.13-x86-windows-binary.msi&use_mirror=osdn

If you install the MSI all you have to type is \"sbcl\" from a command line.

If it works I will upgrade all MM@Home apps to it when I get back to work.

Seems that I can\'t install the .MSI on a 64-bit Vista.
Maybe it works on an 64-bit XP ?

Ok,
Try this:
Let\'s bypass the MSI
Download and unzip this SBCL zip file I made
sbcl.1.013.zip

open up cmd.exe
cd to the directory where you unzipped files sbcl.exe and sbcl.core

try the following command
sbcl --core sbcl.core

hopefully we will get a lisp prompt
Thanks

I just started with MindModeling@Beta today, Monday Feb11, and I\'m also running Vista Ultimate X64. So IF I need to tweak someting to get the app running correctly then I better do it now. And I\'m going to need some very explicit instructions.

When I first attached to this project, 3 WU\'s were downloaded. Almost immediately they went to 100% completion and Status said \"Computation Error\".

Those 3 disappeared and were replaced with 3 more marked \"Ready to Start\". So I don\'t know what is going to happen next. I understand this is Beta app so I guess I\'ve jumped right into the deep end of the pool. No problem, I\'m ready.

I am also running SETI and Rosetta for few weeks so I know BOINC is operating correctly.

Incidently, I\'ve started my own team: MindModeling@Bremerton,Wa. So I\'m planning on being here for a while.

Good Luck.

I just started with MindModeling@Beta today, Monday Feb11, and I\'m also running Vista Ultimate X64. So IF I need to tweak someting to get the app running correctly then I better do it now. And I\'m going to need some very explicit instructions.

We are having no luck with 64-bit Vista.
As soon as someone finds a way to run Steel Bank Common Lisp on a 64-bit windows computer all will be well.

The current test case that someone with a Win64 computer would be this:

Step 1.
Download this file
sbcl.1.013.zip

Step 2.
unzip the file [move the 2 contained files to c:\\ for simplicity]

Step 3.
Press the windows key + r together //this will pop-up a run dialog box
type \'cmd.exe\'
Press enter

Step 4.
You should now have a Command Window [DOS shell]
change directory to where your unzipped the files sbcl.exe and sbcl.core
type \'cd c:\\\'
Press enter

Step 5.
Try running Steel Bank Common Lisp
type
\'sbcl --core sbcl.core\'
press enter

5. Success or Failure
if you get a message talking about
\"Your kitten of death awaits\" -- or something like that
then we have a version of lisp that can be used by the project and I will then release a new Windows version with 64-bit windows support
otherwise
We are still in need of a free lisp implementation of Winx64

Let me know how it turns out,

Thanks Jack.

I followed your procedure with some minor problems.

In Step 1 the system wouldn\'t allow download into c:\\ as it said I didn\'t have permission. Well, I am the owner of the system, the installer of the OS and the only administrator, yet Vista X64 doesn\'t recognize me as such. Vista Ultimate X64 security is still somewhat whacked and a lot of users are haveing problems similar to this. So I downloaded it elsewhere.

In Step 3, I don\'t have a \"windows\" key to press so I used the [start search] function after the Start Button and entered \"cmd\". It found it immediately and displayed an icon in the search results.

I started a command-line session and entered the command-string exactly (?) as you specified. These are the results I got, word for word:


validation of reserved space too short.
VirtualAlloc: 0x1e7.
ensure_space: failed to validate 1044480 bytes at 0x02200000
(hint: Try \"ulimit -a\"; maybe you should increase memory limits.)


Then I realized that I had actually entered \"-core\" instead of \"--core\" as you specified. So I re-ran it and I got this:


SBCL is free software. (blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada)
VirtualAlloc: 0x57
fatal error encountered in SBCL pid 6324:
os_map: VirtualAlloc failure
Welcome to LDB, a low-level debugger for the Lisp runtime environment.
ldb>


I entered the command that was hinted in the first error message: \"ulimit -a\"
and it said \"unknown command\", so that is as far as I got.

Hope all of this helps. For the time being I\'m going to stop running the app. I will monitor this forum to see how this shakes out. When you get a solution I will try again.

Good Luck.
