Public bug reported:
On the WCG site, the rules are avowed so:
"If you are using version 6.2 of the software, then the number of processors used will be the lesser of the two fields below. If you are using a version before 6.2, then only the 'at most' field will be used."
I wanted to change my settings from 3 to 2 CPUs, cause of the great heat outside (and inside).
But this option is ignored by boinc (i can see the 2 CPUs set on all other BOINC projects too!).
If i set it to 4 or 3 CPUs it works as expected, - but 1 and 2 is not only ignored, i get an message after reloading the profile:
Di 18 Jun 2013 17:25:27 CEST | | max CPUs used: 3
In Leiden Classics and eOn2 i can see the right number:
On multiprocessors, use at most 1 processors
Bei mehreren Prozessoren, nutze höchstens 1 Prozessoren
I tested this with the original Ubuntu version 7.0.27, 7.0.65
(backports) and the test version from Costa Franco (Locust of Borg)
7.1.10 with the same result.
