    Have a problem with the work units on this application.
    They have currently expanded from 8.5 minutes to over 3 hours !!
    Is that a correct function of the application ??

    I am running Kubuntu (11.04) 64bit Linux 2.6.38-8-generic with Boinc Client 6.10.59 for x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
    Works fine on QMC and Einstein.

    Anyone have any ideas ?

      For a Win7-64 with Intel i7 it takes 2.10-2.20 (hrs.min)/core to complete a wu
      and on slover ones 3-5 hrs is normal.

      Nothing has changed running Windows, but I hope someone can tell more about
      the Linux side, but to be honest, 8.5 min is a very short time for a wu to
      complete.

        Thanks very much for the information, that's a great help.
        My computer is a 1.6Ghz Turion with 1G of RAM and it looks like my WU is going to last about 4:10 (hrs:min).

        Your prediction of 3-5 hours for the slower computers is absolutely correct !
