Default RMA - stop LLR bug

AT 99% of the CPU!
The network continues to be active too.

This is unacceptable behavior (In my book anyway), that RMA1.6 works around by terminating the process, and writing to disk more often rather than never. (You will loose a few minutes of crunching time when stopping)

Does RMA include LLR in its download? An if so, which version of LLR?

Have you really fixed the load-a-save-file bug for the windows version of LLR?

Yes it is included in the pack! New. (RMA version 1.5)

(RMA version 1.6 due 6/1/04)
I have fixed the stop/restart behavior, but had not noticed it always hanging on every save. There should be a simple workaround for this. I'll work on this for the next few daze.

I could make a fix for just LLR, but currently RMA is the fix.
Actually RMA, could be considered an LLR accesory!

Which version of LLR does RMA use?

I do not have a problem stopping LLR under Windoze. The problem is picking up from a partially done number. i.e. loading a " save file"

Paul,
There is no problems with the LLR. If you stop and start, the new LLR just freezes the screen output but does work on te number. the screen output is restored when the number is finished.

I tried this with a couple of small numbers. n=50K.

Hope this help!

I just tried it on a 930k bit number and it did not finish it

Exclamation

Essentially I have fixed nothing yet, except a symptom.

The new version of LLR is included with the current RMA 1.5, but you can just swap it out with an old one.

I've been poking through LLR's source code, and I have the tools to rebuild it.
Any additional information may be helpful. It sounds like it needs a simple resume on error protection, when a file ( z*.*) ( y*.*) exists.

I've tried automatically deleting, renaming, copying these wilds cards, as soon as they are created, but to no avail. We have just got to get this fixed.

Lightbulb Proposed fix for LLR Bug

If Jean does'nt fix this REAL soon, I have a solution.

By embedding LLR, as an object into an OLE container inside of a visual basic application, it will be easy to save all data associated with that object.
Gonna take a couple/few days since Im busy.


Would anyone be interested in an upgraded version of just LLR?

Thumbs up

I just found out about the Visual 6.0, and C++ 6.0 service packs.
It fixed my ability to rebuild LLR! (link.exe with larger applications)

It's remotely possible that the LLR's problem lie here:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=822856
Notice the workaround, it tries to save it again otherwise it will be lost.

I'll get cracking on this sometime early this weekend!
Cheers,
