An xmalloc error indicates that BOINC thinks there is sufficient free memory for the workunit to run but there's actually not. That lasievee workunit requires at least 350-400 MB of memory to run. If your computer does not have at least this much free memory, then NFS@Home is not a good project for that computer.

OK, thanx. That machine might have been a quirk or maybe something was going on that was using more than it's fair share at the momement. It's a quad with 2GB so in theory it should have 'nuff.

Will check 'em again in the daylight.
