Hi,

I have attached to charity engine following the instructions.  I added it using BOINC account manager.  My current BOINC version is 7.16.3, and my system is an Ubuntu 18.04 box.
It's days that I am getting this:
Fri 15 Nov 2019 09:12:58 AM CET | Charity Engine | Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
Fri 15 Nov 2019 09:12:58 AM CET | Charity Engine | Requesting new tasks for NVIDIA GPU
Fri 15 Nov 2019 09:13:00 AM CET | Charity Engine | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

I am not sure if this helps but my account is "ce6402067".

Any help?

There is not currently commercial work for Linux systems, so your system is instead doing work for research projects and is earning points that way. You'll be entered into the prize drawing as a result, so it looks like you're in good shape!

My Ubuntu machine has stopped accepting Rosetta jobs, and suddenly dropped a LHC job today .. leaving only Cosmology jobs.

Will we now be getting jobs for other projects?

Nothing has changed on this end. Maybe the event log in your client software has some clues as to why you aren't receiving jobs?

Both the Rosetta and LHC projects have disappeared from my project list. And I'm seeing the following log message when I open boincmgr:

dir_open: Could not open directory 'locale' from '/var/lib/boinc-client'.

Update .. the Rosetta and LHC projects have now re-appeared .. because I've freed up some disk space. :)

Excellent! I would have had to say I didn't have much to offer on the "could not open directory" error, so I'm all the more glad you were able to work it out.
