I'm trying to figure out what users aren't getting GPU workunits. Is it everyone? Or just some people with certain types of ATI cards?

As far as I can tell, there should be both opencl AMD/ATI and opencl NVIDIA applications available.

My 1090t/5870/Win7-64 host hasn't gotten any GPU WU's since earlier today at about 1616 UTC.

What applications do you guys have selected in your project preferences? I'm wondering if maybe you turned off the opencl ATI version?

I'm getting ATI WU's on a computer that can't run them and has been set for CPU ONLY for months... They won't even start and so I'm aborting them.

I've just sent out an email to the boinc projects mailing lists, so we're looking into it and hopefully can have a fix for you soon.

Same host has been getting WU's since about 2331 UTC -- they seem to be running fine. I made no changes to any preferences.

running an old ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series video card.

nbody WU resources is showing its grabbing every core. That's precluding GPU work units from running once that MT nbody WU is running.
