Thank you again!

Here are the extra versions (Wagstaff and/or LessClasses), they are an addon the to basic version, just drop the 6 executables into the basic folder.

"Sad" but true, in terms of performance per watt (aka energy efficiency) they are sooooooo obsolete. On the other hand we should be happy that we have more advanced hardware today.

This is a result of the way \n is interpreted by the C compiler. I assume you are using Windows, for gcc/llvm certainly wouldn't use \r\n on and *nix OS.

Basically, all \r\n are translated to \n for the purposes of I/O in C, and vice versa. The mfaktc source code has no place where one may find the "\r" character sequence.

It doesn't really matter where the behaviour originates, it was just one of those gotchas I ran across. I was doing a simple assignment-count check using filesize(worktodo.txt) / strlen('Factor=1234567890,64,67'."\n") and writing new assignments, and then wondering why my expected line count and actual line count didn't match.

Default Gentoo?

Will mfaktc run on Gentoo, or is this a CUDA issue?

You need CUDA, which means the Nvidia proprietary drivers. I don't know enough to know if said drivers are compatible with Gentoo, but I strongly suspect not.

They are. My coworker uses the binary drivers with Gentoo.

Is that from the official nvidia installation system or by cribbing the binary from some other distro's package?

I'm not sure. NVidia does provide a script-based installer, so it's probably using that.

Question

In all the pages of documents I have read, I came across something which indicated mfaktc will be revised so it can communicate with the PrimeNet server. Is this true? If so, any ideas as to when this might happen?

Complete and utter bullshit.

Care to provide evidence to disprove this statement?
