Just started RC5 and need assist
Hey guys and gals- I just read your posts to socalgal and I wanted to update my default choices to the ones suggested but I can't get in to configure. I click on the cow and the configure button is gray. I tried pausing it and trying but no help. I am also no on the web site yet. i have been crunching for 3 days. Should I worry? thanks-Dave
start the client with the -config switch to do this go to dos prompt, change to the dir where rc5 is and type rc5des -config this will get you to the menu
If you've uploaded blocks, they should be showing up under your e-mail address which is what D.Net uses as the user name. If you use the search feature on the D.Net stats and you don't show up, you've either not uploaded or the config was not set to your e-mail address.
Be sure to check your config to make sure you've put in your e-mail address. One time, I wasn't paying attention on a new set of machines and uploaded 1,000 blocks to email@example.com which is the default. If you look at Virus' Pproxy, you will see that firstname.lastname@example.org has logged over 6,000 blocks. Needless to say, these blocks don't count for Sysopt even though they are on the Pproxy.
Rather than clicking on the cow, have you tried going to Start->Run, browsing to the folder where you're keeping the rc5 client, and typing "rc5des.exe -config"?
This assumes you're in Windows, of course.
I've only seen the cow grayed out on the Mac, where you can hide/unhide the rc5 client.
I tried the advice you gave Jeana and I get an error about not having part or all of the file. I will try going to a dos prompt and see if that works. Wish me luck. Am I missing something though? Did the installation go correctly? Or is this error supposed to occur in this situation? Thanks everyone. I will say that my email did pop up on the web page and (even though I am one of the slower participants) I am uploading packages to the correct area so we get credit. Go Sysopt!
I take that last one back. I shut down RC5 and browsed to the exe and added "-config" to the run line and got the config up. Thanks a bunch.
A few config questions
-Should I leave the number crunchers on autodetect to optimize speed?
-Shold I leave the priority at 0?
Mod w/ an attitude
Yes to both questions. If you increase the priority setting, you will be interfering with other programs which MAY need to do something which RC5 interupts.
