Windows 10 There have been a couple power outages recently here. When one of my 5 PCs came up it had lost worktodo.txt and local.txt. I recreated them and restarted and the PC immediately shutdown (no blue screen...just boom) I deleted the pminus1 workfiles (on a whim) and it proceeded to work. The most recent outage; same symptoms. The above did not help. I upgraded to the newest version here...same result. I downgraded to the version on the public GIMPS website and now it runs. I can't be sure it is version related or just a flaky PC. PS: memtest ran error free. Last fiddled with by petrw1 on 2021-07-30 at 06:00

When you say "working directory" what do you mean? Are you sure it is absolutely empty? Do you have the correct permissions for the "working directory"? Have you allowed some time to elapse for the upload and the reporting?

I run all the GIMPS work from $HOME/gimps. Everything runs from there. The PRP test result was uploaded more than 52 hours ago, but I don't believe a proof has been uploaded. An hour and fifteen minutes after M105212323 was known not to be prime, M105196813 was completed on the machine, working in the same directory. Looking at what happened with M105196813 Code: [Worker #3 Jul 28 03:09] Generating proof for M105196813. Proof power = 9, Hash length = 64 [Worker #3 Jul 28 03:15] M105196813 is not prime. RES64: B36955DB15C715B8. Wh8: DD238B1C,24691551,00000000 [Comm thread Jul 28 03:26] MD5 of p105196813.proof is 638b15dc2ea53a58984ef43d9c5506dc [Comm thread Jul 28 03:26] Proof file exponent is 105196813 [Comm thread Jul 28 03:26] Filesize of p105196813.proof is 131496078 [Comm thread Jul 28 03:43] Proof file p105196813.proof successfully uploaded So for M105196813, the proof was successfully uploaded 28 minutes after the number was known not to be prime, with most of that 28 minutes being the upload - the proof had been generated 11 minutes after the number was known not to be prime. I think it is safe to say that no proof will be generated or uploaded for M105212323, since it should have happened long before now. I don't know if its any coincidence, but I had run two P-1 tests on M105212323, as I was doing a bit of benchmarking. It will be interesting to see if M105211111 gets a proof uploaded when it completes, as I had run multiple P-1 tests on that too. M105211111 should complete by about 23:00 UTC today. My strategy for running the multiple P-1 tests on M105212323 was 1. Start the mprime with the entry in worktodo.txt indicating 1 test would be saved. 2. When I'd seen that the P-1 had finished, and the PRP started, I would kill mprime and delete any files on disk related to it. 3. Edit worktodo.txt to put the number of saved tests to 2. 4. Run mprime again, but this time let the PRP test finish after the P-1 had been run. I find it a bit hard to believe that doing this would have stopped the proof being generated, but it is something I did which I don't normally do.

I'll try again tomorrow to see if I can run 30.5 yet....not holding my breath. After 2 days of it running version 30.3 just find I stopped Prime95 and tried a few different version of 30.4/30.5 ... all caused my PC to shutdown seconds after starting Prime95. I reverted back to 30.3 ... guess what BOOM! PC Shutdown on start of Prime95; 3 tries; 3 shutdowns. So it is software conflicts or faulty hardware....??? Running a Prime95 stress test now...after 2 hours all tests passed so far. PS...is there some secret debug option in Prime95 what will spew out logs that can be analyzed after a failure such as this?  2021-08-01, 20:28 #360 petrw1 1976 Toyota Corona years forever! "Wayne" Nov 2006 Saskatchewan, Canada 5,179 Posts So the latest is that this PC has no issue running DC, ECM or Pfactor. But still shuts down as soon as it starts or continues a Pminus1. For now I've converted my Pminus1 to comparable Pfactor and it seems to be content. 2021-08-01, 20:58 #361 Viliam Furik "Viliam Furík" Jul 2018 Martin, Slovakia 13618 Posts Quote:  Originally Posted by petrw1 So the latest is that this PC has no issue running DC, ECM or Pfactor.

It's possible there is some weird connection to my problems with Pminus1. (starting here at post #329) Are your workers well-fed? I didn't have problems with system shutdowns, only the Prime95 stopped. But still, there may be more to it. What is your worker configuration, and CPU model?  2021-08-01, 21:23 #362 Prime95 P90 years forever! Aug 2002 Yeehaw, FL 788210 Posts Is it continuing from a savefile? If so, try renaming it.
