Message 44879 - Posted: 10 Dec 2010, 7:57:06 UTC

I've updated the separation application to 0.50 for Windows, Linux x86/x86_64/PPC, and OS X x86_64/PPC. I've also added the Nvidia OpenCL application, but I'm not sure if the scheduler's been updated to automatically send it out. I also haven't yet removed the old CUDA one.

This should fix the crashing of 17_3s workunits and a few other things.

Good evening,

Thank you for your works of development applications ...

No 64-bit, right now?

Not for windows. I need to try again some time to get the 64 bit BOINC libraries built. Last time I tried it failed miserably.

A 32bit Linux OpenCL one is also waiting on me getting around to a 32 bit install on actual hardware.

I forgot to actually mark the CUDA one as deprecated; it seems to be sending out the OpenCL one now.

Today I've discovered that clang defaults to using SSE/SSE2 even on 32 bit x86 systems, so all the non-SSE2 Linux systems were failing. I've rebuilt it as 0.51 which should fix it there.

As I cannot see your machines I cannot tell what driver version you are running, best bet is to upgrade to the latest release and see if that fixes the problem.

It looks like by default the BOINC scheduler only requires a really old Nvidia driver version to send the OpenCL one, so that needs to be fixed.

Are you aware that on XP, Win 2000 - 2003 servers the 260.xx drivers do not have the option to run at prefer maximum performance in NVidia control panel, Power management mode. Many cards, by default, drop their freq to the minimum? Even for Fermi cards Performance is not present in Global settings and while it is present in Program Settings, it is stuck at adaptive; cant be changed to Prefer Maximum Performance.

Would a GTX470 work with 260.99 with the app?

Good luck,

The GTX470 seems to have worked, going by credit totals, but the tasks don't hang around long online.

It's not really mapping the Milkyway. It uses data from a project which is trying to map the entire sky, but the real point is to find a model for the Milkyway's potential, in particular the halo. Knowing the mass distribution of the galaxy would be useful in solving the dark matter problem.

By potential I take it you mean mass and velocity,
and MVmilkyway - SumMiVi = dark matter mass X V (i for individual stars, dust, planets, moons...)?

it's tough i know... to have someone as ignorant as me but... just someone humour me with an explanation... I'll be grateful for life!


G'Day Niburujoe,

BOINC is a platform through which many projects can be launched all doing different things.

SETI also uses the BOINC platform (the first project to do so) and it's purpose is to find signs of Alien life.

It is just one of a number of Astronomy projects, some others being:-

Einstein_____(searches for Pulsars, gravity waves and such)
Cosmology____(trying to understand the universe (I think))
MilkyWay_____(as Matt said trying to get a better idea how big and massive
_____________ Milkyway really is)
Orbit________(tracking space junk including asteroids and meteors)
Constellation____(various space and science projects)

plus a few others.

So as you can see you wont find Aliens here at Milkyway but you may help us find out more about the Galaxy in which we live.

Conan.
