Windows and PS3 versions are updated from 508->509:
2.9103-509
imp: x86: Intel Atom (#4080)
imp: x86: Pentium III detection (#4121)
imp: x86: Intel Core i7 detection (#4118)
fix: x86: Various AMD CPU Detections (#4074 & #4120)
fix: all: Fix OGR-NG middle mark limit miscalculation on odd rulers
fix: all: OGR-NG state restored properly after a restart
fix: linux: Improved OGR-NG cache management (#4076)
imp: all: Print combined OGR-NG stubs with more details (#4082)
fix: all: Combined OGR-NG stubs no longer appear to restart (#4083)

Mac PPC/Intel, Linux 32/64, Solaris are updated from 507->509 and contains now also the new up to 30% faster MMX core and these changes:
2.9102-508
new: x86: OGR-NG mmx core
imp: x86: Identify AMD "Unknown" processors (#4106)

I just started running this again on my PS3, after running a couple days it slows way down and takes forever to finish a WU(if at all), when I check the task monitor it show 10-20 dnets apps running while after a reboot it only has 5-6. is this a known problem or something goofy while my machine?

Thanks,

This is not known.
I know that sometimes dnet keeps hanging in memory if Boinc switches the project or Boinc is stopped. In this cases it can lead to multiple dnet processes hanging around.

well, it's not a project switching problem since I disconnected from other project when I run here(and vise-versa). and the only time boinc stops(that I'm aware of) is to run it's periodical benchmarks.

I received the message below when I downloaded a new cruncher wu. It appears I do not have enough memory to run the job. Have the memory requirements been increased with the new application?

Thanks for the help.

Hello,
the ecm subproject has sometimes work units with such high memory requirements.

last night I joined yoyo with ydl/ps3 using dotsch app, http://www.dotsch.de/boinc/BOINC%20Clients.html and have WUs crunching. I get a similar message: 5/1/2009 7:45:14 AM|yoyo@home|Message from server: Your computer has 210.08MB of memory, and a job requires 1716.61MB

besides the obvious coming up just a bit short, what does this mean?

I am new to this project and ps3--I have no idea how a ps3 works, yet, not sure what I can do about the memory shortage unless this a swap matter. not knowing any better with a ps3 I went with the recommended swap for ydl6.1 which I believe was 512.

recommendations needed.

thanks.

Only certain Yoyo workunits have such huge memory requirements (afaik. only a subset of the ECM workunits is affected).

You can choose which Yoyo subproject you want to crunch on this page :

http://www.rechenkraft.net/yoyo/prefs.p ... et=project

For a PS3, the distributed.net client probably will have the highest thoughput, so you might want to try the OGR workunits (optimal golumb ruler) - it is optimized to use all cores of a PS3
