The QC multicore app is running well on the majority of hosts.

Here are a couple of tips for the very few cases where it fails. You should look in the "stderr output" of the relevant task.

If you see...

task miniconda-installer reached time limit 360
-- the installer could not be downloaded within 6 minutes. (Firewall? Slow connection?) Resetting the project (when idle) may help.

missing bzip2 executable
or something similar: as the name says. It should be trivial to install bzip2 via your package manager.

wrapper_26198_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu: /lib64/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by wrapper_26198_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu)
The current app requires a relatively new distribution.

ERROR An error occurred while installing package 'psi4::gcc-5-5.2.0-1'.
LinkError: post-link script failed for package psi4::gcc-5-5.2.0-1
running your command again with `-v` will provide additional information
location of failed script: /home/xxxxxxxx/BOINC/projects/
Try and install the gcc package through your distribution's package manager

I have a 12 thread CPU. Very few of the MT tasks fail to run.
