It's now available for beta-testing. Supported OS: MacOS 10.7 (64-bit) or newer. Make sure to check "Run test applications" in project preferences.

Woo hoo! Put two slower hosts on, we'll see how it works! :-)

"Error while computing" on site, "Computation error" on host. Only difference on two hosts was speed - 15 seconds vs. 20 seconds to failure. Hosts 1055 and 2650.

It looks like clock_gettime is not implemented on older versions of OS X (< 10.12). I'll update the MacOS application soon.

I've fixed this error. Can you try version 1.19?

First one started on older OS host (2650). No error in first minute or two, will report back!

Laptop (host 1055), Mac OS X 10.11.6, first task completed and validated.
iMac (host 2650), Mac OS X 10.8.5, first task about 1/2 way through, no problems expected.

Looking good! :-) Intel MacPro equiv tied up on other projects, but will run a bunch of Amic through it Real Soon Now.
PPC MacPro, etc, eh, not expecting an application for them. :-/ Latest-OS Macs, sorry, can't help; have too many apps that break after El Capitan, waiting on updates to those before I upgrade OSes.

Message 440 - Posted: 29 Apr 2017, 3:52:09 UTC - in response to Message 404.  

Decided to pop osx86 10.9 ( from nerish ) running the darwin 13.0.0 kernel " Computer 3268 ", back on another dell latitude i5 m540 , 4gb , 120gb hdd and it worked without a problem so far.. I am not found of the idea of an upgrade to el captian since I ran this 3 years ago and it broke audio etc and I want to run AM for a few days atleast.. I/you can compare with run times and such with other same spec e6410's as I have a few. This project and to put up a osx86 gridcoin node were the main reason for the osx86 install so I hope it helps with AM project beta testing.

Per PPC comment before my post , there is only 1 project I can find for my silver G5 tower and even then you have to compile boinc as a ps3 pm if you wish more detail or help.

I'll try this as well when the recent PrimeGrid race is over. ;-)

Regarding PPC:
There are at least eight projects that have productive applications for Mac-PPC, which are DistributedDataMining, Einstein, Enigma, MooWrapper, Seti, SZTAKI Desktop Grid, Wep-m+2 Project, yoyo. And, naturally, WUProp.

gemini8 thank you the reply but unfortunately you misunderstood as I said PPC64 running Linux not OSX as there for example we will just go with the machine in question as I mostly use it as a file server and ircd server leaf internally linked to my external hub/leaf network but that meant left over resources on yet just another Linux machine as IBM uses today what would be the G8 with their Power 8 series and some of us are not standard end users with just desktops and or laptops.
Anyways , so you can install Linux on ppc64 so my silver dual cpu 2ghz g5 runs Debian 8 , you install Boinc ( apt install Boinc ) and it has a port but no projects support the Motorola fx970 cpu not even yoyo@home.
Now if you download the source code and compile Boinc yourself ( i usually do on Linux no matter what architecture I am working with or platform ) and instead of letting it ID the CPU from the install scripting that reads /proc/cpuinfo when it both compiles and starts Boinc and runs the cpu bench marking script to check your hardware you compile with ./configure --with-boinc-platform=powerpc64-ps3-linux-gnu and then the Mac G5 running Linux when checked by the only project that supports a CPU that is not ARM/x86/x64 as its not OSX. I hope this helps you understand and I am sorry to others but I thought informing clearly was better than ignoring in order to help the Boinc community grow as there are many G5 machines collecting dust and since Linux is not limited to replace Windows. :) To Amicable numbers I am sorry this was not related to your project.

Not to mention even an old g5 mac tower earned me money ( over $100 in the last year for maybe 1/4th the power cost if that ) processing my work units just like all of the rest of the Boinc work I process just the same as Amicable Numbers.

Now to post my issue with the actually machine related to this thread since its actually running osx 10.9 not linux , although its a Dell e6410 with i5 m540. I have 3 of that model and same spec laptop 4-8gb ram and in Win 7 a WU takes 1hr or so but on OSX its 1 day and 5hr per WU I assume its more FLOPS in the OSX WU than the Windows ones! OK I like to run FBSD on SUN too so I am not normal!! I have 250gb of OS iso's and have been running linux since the seti@home alpha days with my 4mb stb tnt2 with laptop edo stick of memory adding another 4mb for a total of 8mb and my 2 x 12mb 3dfx voodoo2's when the point of seti@home was to have the better flowing openGL screen saver so you could watch the waterfall!

Also , per admin/AM staff we REALLY need AM for ARM/android!
