Message 55588 - Posted: 13 Oct 2020 | 6:07:19 UTC

I'm creating some experimental tasks for the Python app (made Beta). They are Linux and CUDA specific and serve in preparation for future batches.

They may use a relatively large amount of disk space (order of 1-10 GB) which persists between runs, and is cleared if you reset the project.

Conda Warnings reported. Will you push out update with app (or safe to ignore)?

Also Warnings about path not found:
WARNING conda.core.envs_manager:register_env(50): Unable to register environment. Path not writable or missing. environment location: /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/www.gpugrid.net/miniconda registry file: /root/.conda/environments.txt

Registry file location ( /root/ ) will not be accessible to boinc user unless conda is already installed on the host (by root user) and conda file is world readable

Otherwise the task status is Completed and Validated

Looks harmless, thanks for reporting. It's because the "boinc" user doesn't have a HOME directory I think.

Agreed

Perhaps adding "./envs" switch to the end of the command:

/var/lib/boinc-client/projects/www.gpugrid.net/miniconda/bin/conda install


May help with setting up the environment.

This switch should add environment file to current directory from which command is executed.
