    I noticed today the Wu length for the PS3 I have went from about 5.5 Min's to 8.5 Min's sometime recently with no Increase in the Credit's. Is this Intentional Wu Length Increrase or ? ... Thanks

        Also getting some computation errors on my linux boxes. Something's changed. Hopefully intentionally ;)

            Increase of about 50% in the last week... still pretty good credit, but yeah, what's up?

              IIRC the computation time has changed (and significantly) after the application started to checkpoint. Thus catch22 in action.

                PS3s are returning crap and getting credit for it, so what do you care? Do you really think the PS3 is returning real work that fast? It's not even successfully using the SPUs. If the project admins don't care that people are returning crap for credits, maybe I should put mine back on it.

                  I have no idea what the PS3's are returning, if the Projects happy with what they return then I'm happy.

                    Do you need Linux on ps3 to crunch boinc?

                      I seem to have received some WUs that are taking more than double the usual time.

                      Is this intended/expected?

                      Not particularly bothered, just didn't want to think I was crunching faulty WUs!

                        Yes, most install Yellowdog Linux ... There's Instructions out there on how to do it, just goggle for them ...

                          Try a Reboot of the PS3, sometimes you get more than 1 Instance of BOINC running on the PS3 (I know I do at Times) and the Wu's Times Increase when you do this.

                          The Wu's Times Doubled for me back on the 9'th of May but haven't since so if yours increased just recently a Reboot may bring the Times back down ...
