Last night we have run a thorough HD hardware check over several hours to identify the reason for why our RAID system on the server occasionally slows down. However, the HD is error-free.
Anyway, new CMS work units for all operating systems will be released some time this weekend in addition to the remainder of the CMC work for Linux x64 machines. It would help us to speed up things (and generate even more CMS work) if the Linux x64 users could transiently disable the cmsearch application and focus on completion of the CMC packets.

I've had 2 Linux64 machines up for 48 hours and haven't received any CMC packets in the last 24 hours.

Well, even for the Linux x64 machines we need to apply strict homogenous redundancy rules for successful validation as stated in our FAQ. So, it seems that you use a different CPU type than those required for completing the remaining CMC WUs. That is indeed sad and reflects our requirement for many, many more Linux x64 participants. Thank you for your attempt to help us. At least you should get CMS WUs some time this weekend.
