Hi,
after some time I managed to plug in my sensor to measure again. I have the BOINC manager from Ubuntu repositories and all looks OK - however I cannot view my data.

My Computer ID is 15811, but if I use:
http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/gettrickledata.php?start=0&hostid=15811

it says "no data". Also checked my account - there are 4 finished and validated task for September:

sample_5317978_0 5317978 16 Sep 2015 | 22:36:46 UTC
sample_5313868_0 5313868 15 Sep 2015 | 22:01:44 UTC
sample_5309802_0 5309802 14 Sep 2015 | 22:13:10 UTC
ample_5305469_0 5305469 13 Sep 2015 | 20:31:42 UTC

But if I click for details:

Stderr output

<core_client_version>7.4.23</core_client_version>

for all the tasks. I have no idea whether this is the reason I cannot view the data or maybe I am doing something wrong.

any suggestions?

thanks

PS: detector is v3 (said TJM :-) ).

See message 3183 http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=154&nowrap=true#3183. KarmannGaz had some suggestions for Sean who had the same error messages.

Yes, operation not permitted, so Linux isn't allowing user boinc access to the sensor. Your tasks will just sit there until they expire - long elapsed time but not done anything, and you get no credit, hence no data to see. You need to tell Linux to let boinc use the sensor, the instructions are at the bottom of that thread Norbert mentioned above.

This is strange. I put "53-radioactive.rules" in /etc/udev/rules.d, file contains the code based on suggestion found in mentioned discussion threads:

#r@h
ATTRS{idVendor}=="16c0", MODE="666", GROUP="plugdev"
LABEL="radioactive_rules_end"


And I rebooted my machine and also because of some problems I had to purge Boinc and install it again.

However I am still getting those messages:


Stderr output

<core_client_version>7.4.23</core_client_version>

for my tasks...

Did I something wrong? The file has the same permissions as the other ones in /etc/udev/rules.d

PS: also tried running Boinc as root but no effect...

Should be ATTR, not ATTRS, I think. This is what I've got in my file on that line :

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="16c0", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"

OK I corrected it but still does not look good:
http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/result.php?resultid=5352706

Will try few more tasks to see whether anything changed...

Hmm, odd. Did you add boinc to plugdev group as well? Try "id boinc" to see if it's in there, you should get something like this :

> id boinc
uid=118(boinc) gid=128(boinc) groups=128(boinc),44(video),46(plugdev)


If plugdev isn't in the list shown, add it with :

> sudo adduser boinc plugdev


I'm pretty sure those were the only two things I changed to get it working on my machine.

I do not understand it - I did:

juhele@Hosaka-Cyberspace7:~$ id boinc
uid=124(boinc) gid=139(boinc) skupiny=139(boinc),44(video)
juhele@Hosaka-Cyberspace7:~$ sudo adduser boinc plugdev
[sudo] password for juhele:
Přidávám uživatele „boinc“ do skupiny „plugdev“…
Přidávám uživatele boinc do skupiny plugdev
Hotovo.
juhele@Hosaka-Cyberspace7:~$


Boinc was added to plugdev group without problems, but my last task looks again this way...

http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/result.php?resultid=5364892

I will try to purge boinc again and install their own package and not the one from repository.

Worth a try, what you've done so far seems fine though.

Another thought - check the sensor is actually detected by the computer by issuing the lsusb command, you should see something like this :

gaz@gaz-A8:~ > lsusb
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 009 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 008 Device 003: ID 16c0:05df Van Ooijen Technische Informatica HID device except mice, keyboards, and joysticks
etc.


That last one above is the Radioactive at home sensor. If you can't see it on any of your usb bus/devices, try unplugging & re-inserting the sensor and see if it reappears. I'm just wondering if the sensor is communicating with the computer ok.
