    I have recently been trying to get folding (version 5) to work on my Dual 2.7 G5. I have the Command Line interface installed, and have the username as "MisterKeeks" and team # as 3446.

    I am also using "InCrease". I have set the Local Group to ~/Library/InCrease/unit

    I have not been able to get any work units. The CLI is outputting this in the terminal:
    And InCrease does absolutely nothing, as the controls are greyed out:

    Right side of wrong
    Not really sure about ppc, but I'd uninstall and reinstall again, and delete all work units if there are any.

    Unfortunately, I think we've reached the end of the road for PPC folding.
    The client has been deprecated for a few years, and the last Work Server is no longer being assigned macs.
    Maybe try something else with the G5 - BOINC should still have projects for PPC

    I will do so tomorrow
    That's unfortunate. If twoodcc's suggestion does not resolve the issue, I will find an alternative, I have plenty of extra cycles!
