Re: [F@H] Stuck on Update_Core -- what to do?

Click for full size
Thank you, Pin.

... If you are still stuck in the Update Core ( Core Out of Date ) loop in the morning, you might need to ditch the current WU.

I'm still stuck. Tried stopping F@H and restarting, but nothing changed. What must I do to ditch the current WU? I don't want to lose the one that's in progress.

Edit: I tried a couple of things in Advanced mode but no luck. At least I didn't dump the one that's running.

Stop F@H (pause the currently running client first so that you don't loose the good workunit). Doing the following while F@H is running is probably a bad idea!

Locate the folder/directory with the data and log files for the F@H client. Within that directory you should see subdirectories such as "logs", "cores" and "work".

Within the "work" directory you will find further subdirectories for each workunit. The subdirectory with name "00" has the stuck workunit and the subdirectory with the name "02" has the good workunit (based on the posted picture, this may have changed if that workunit completed in the meantime and another one was loaded). The important part is that the value shown in the ID column in FAHControl for the work queue is also the name of the subdirectory under "work".

You can delete the entire "00" subdirectory as it will be recreated as needed by FAHClient. On restart (you may need to click Fold to un-pause) you will see log messages:

WARNING:WU00:Missing data files, dumping
WU00:FS00:Cleaning up

Followed by connecting to the assignment server and downloading a new workunit.
