Message 1889 - Posted: 4 Jan 2011, 20:58:25 UTC

Hello - I have a couple of 16 processor machines running Linux working on E@home. From time to time I get these weird errors where it says that 'task was reported too late to validate' although I'm under the time limit for the work unit. From the stderr output I think the client is generating output that the server validator can't handle. Stderr output below:

<core_client_version>6.10.58</core_client_version>
<![CDATA[
<stderr_txt>
wrapper: starting
wrapper: running ../../projects/www.enigmaathome.net/enigma2_0.76_i686-pc-linux-gnu (-R -o results.txt 00trigr.cur 00bigr.cur 00ciphertext)

Here's the task url:

Any help would be appreciated - I'm running the current client, not the development version on Centos 5.

Message 1902 - Posted: 11 Jan 2011, 23:08:02 UTC - in response to Message 1889.  

Hi - I am having the same issue.

Please take a look at this work unit:
http://www.enigmaathome.net/result.php?resultid=20945960

It was returned within 3h but was reported as "too late to validate".

I am also running the latest stable client and other work units get validated just fine.

Thanks!

These results are not too late, but invalid. Validator debug/info (as seen at results page, bottom section of stderr) says that something is wrong with the output file, usually an error like that suggests that the file was just incomplete. The question is, what caused the problem.

The validator sets wrong flags for invalid results, that's why it's listed as "too late" instead of "invalid". I used this flag for tests and as a workaround for transitioner bug and forgot to change it back.
