Be warned that it doesn't use the platform string (windows_amd64) that has been used by projects for over 6 months, so it won't get native 64-bit applications from any project that already supports AMD64.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that!

My guess is that as projects update their server code, they will pick up the new win64 string (however it is now formatted). But I dont know, time will tell.

I know Crunch3r was not happy (to say the least) about berkley going with their own string name again (they did the same thing with the unix x64 version as well), and not what had been established by the community. This is going to cause some problems until probably everyone is using berkley's client and server updates.

I installed berkley's 64bit client for windows. The I got work from the following projects:

Docking
Primgrid
Riesle Sieve
WCG

They all sent 32 bit appps.

SETI and SETI beta were down.

I didnt get any work from nano, but they do not have any work to hand out.

I did get some from nano before they ran out of resends, so it is definately on this list when they come back.

Ralph has announced they have x86_64 apps but my host won't download any work for some reason. I am not getting the platform not found message though.

I have a windows_x86_64 box running a WCG unit now.

With the 5.9.x client this thread will be pointless soon. All it takes now to support 64bit is to update the server software to a release later than 4/30/7.

Indeed, when the 5.10 client is released, there'll be no more need for custom built clients. However, so far, I've only seen signs of an official Windows x64 client. Of course, if an official Linux x86-64 client is not released, I'll continue my crusade. :-)

Thanks for the confirmation.

I read in the boinc e-mails a few days ago that 64bit mac will be supported soon after OS 10.5 is released.

I have posted BOINC version 5.9.8 for the Macintosh to the alpha download page.

This is the same as 5.9.7 but with the bug fix for multi-platform support.

The installation procedure for the Mac has not changed. The Mac version does not yet support 64-bit applications; we plan to add that capability after Apple releases OS 10.5.

Cheers,
--Charlie


btw, 5.9.9 for windows x32/x64 and mac have been realeased today.

OK ... i only signed up to answer this one.

I'm LMAO ... since boinc decided to create a platform called "windows_x86_64" which does not exist nor is that one called that way, it caused a lot of trouble.

For those that ever had a look at an official Windows XP 64 bit CD/DVD ... Microsoft calles that platform "amd64" an NOT "x86_64" have a look for yourself on your windows xp 64 bit CD/DVD. There is a folder called "AMD64".

So who's wrong here ??? The ones that actually designed that platform or the ones that ported windows to AMD64 ....

Or is it berkeley that decided to "invent" a platform that does not exist ? Hmm....

I guess Microsoft, AMD and others( like CryTek... Ya know the guys programmed "FarCry" , which has a patch called "farcry_amd64upgrade_en.exe" dated from 25th mai 2005....) not even considering the projects that allready support windows_amd64...

Those are all wrong calling that platform windows_amd64 and have been wrong years befor berkeley intented "windows_x86_64" ...


Well i guess those guys have to rework their OS, GAMES etc to the newly created "Windows_x86_64" platform... because berkeley made it so.

P.S.

All projects that support windows 64 bit are wrong too... well since i decided to port boinc to 64 bit windows ( both AMD64 AND I64 (Itanium)) that's been ..well more than a year ?

Support from projects for "windows_amd64" ...allmost a year ... well they are all wrong .. "BORKLEY" creates stuff that don't exist ... and well ...

P.P.S.

I'm LMAO reading some posts on the boinc boards ... like this one -->

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=1742&nowrap=true#9948

"Intel does not use AMD64, Intel uses INTEL64" WTF ... intel licensed AMD64 ...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"The projects blundered when they went with AMD64. They now have to pay the price and rename the tags."

No Berkeley "blundered" while creating a platform that does not exist... That's for sure .... "windows_amd64" has been an official platform since 2005 Get the fact's before posting crap

LOL

I can conferm that rosetta sents 32bit app to windows x64.

also, if I am reading the tech new correct, seti (and beta) may now support windows x64. They metioned that they updated all the BOINC-side code to bring the SETI@home project in line with the current BOINC source tree. This is good news. (now if only a 64bit app would be created)

I tried the x86-64 beta client for Linux and so far only SETI has current enough server software to support alternative platforms.

However, somehow this beta client has issues communicating with WCG. My client just needed the file ca-bundle.crt, but it doesn't seem to be enough now. Thus, before trying the beta client, make sure that any WCG WU is over and no new work is fetched from WCG.

So, even though it can crunch for an additional project (SETI), it stops crunching for another (WCG).

Thanks for the update Augustine, I'll continue using you client.

BTW, if SETI has updated it's server software and now correctly recognises the x86_64 platform then your client will work with SETI too. Or have I missed something?

Surprisingly, my client still doesn't work with SETI because although it uses updated software, it's not properly configured. :-(

Both PrimeGrid and DepSpid support only Windows and I don't have any Windows x64 system. Perhaps others can chime in?
