    Work packet too large error

    Post by DaBoSSs on Fri Mar 25, 2011 9:32 am

    Just started using FaH Tracker this week when I upgraded/added another GPU and decided to try it to make setup easier. Encountered this problem with install and setup of the clients. In browsing the evga forum, quite a few others are having this problem as well. I found a suggestion to add choices for packet size - small, normal, big in the suggestions forum, but to me this represents a bug in the setup of the client.

    I have a machine with an overclocked i7-920 and run have run the SMP client for many months now without a problem. When I resetup the SMP client with FaH Tracker, on running the SMP client I got a "work packet too large" error repeatedly. Users on the evga form have as well, all when -bigadv flag is set.

    The problem is that for users with large amt of memory, in order to run the larger SMP WU, file packet size MUST be set to big. (bigpackets=big in client.cfg)Once I redid the client.cfg file with another program, my 8955 point WU (WU6901) loaded without a problem. (Although FaH Tracker does not show the correct points for expected completion time of the WU, that's another bug I see reported already.)

    Seems like FaH Tracker needs to either have an option to set the bigpackets in client.cfg, or automatically set it to big, with a warning to users about file size, when the -bigadv flag is set, or both.
