Hello everyone,

Since i switched from CPU to GPU computation ('use CPU' is disabled, 'Use ATI GPU' enabled in MilkyWay@Home preferences) the following message is displayed:

13-Jan-2015 19:07:44 [Milkyway@Home] Requesting new tasks for CPU and AMD/ATI GPU 13-Jan-2015 19:07:47 [Milkyway@Home] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks 13-Jan-2015 19:07:47 [Milkyway@Home] No tasks sent 13-Jan-2015 19:07:47 [Milkyway@Home] ATI GPU R600 (R38xx) does not support OpenCL 13-Jan-2015 19:07:47 [Milkyway@Home] Tasks for CPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them 13-Jan-2015 19:07:47 [Milkyway@Home] Tasks for NVIDIA GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them 13-Jan-2015 19:08:53 [Milkyway@Home] Sending scheduler request: To fetch work. 13-Jan-2015 19:08:53 [Milkyway@Home] Requesting new tasks for AMD/ATI GPU 13-Jan-2015 19:08:55 [Milkyway@Home] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks


My computer is a openSUSE 13.1 with R9 290 and proprietary drivers (and OpenCL sdk) installed.

Can anyone point me to how i can 'convince' the application that my GPU is OpenCL capable?

On seti@home & POEM@home the GPU is used without problems with the same settings in preferences menu.

i created this app_info.xml

<app_info> <app> <name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit</name> </app> <file_info> <name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__opencl_ati_101</name> <executable /> </file_info> <app_version> <app_name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit</app_name> <version_num>136</version_num> <avg_ncpus>0.040000</avg_ncpus> <max_ncpus>0.567833</max_ncpus> <plan_class>opencl_ati_101</plan_class> <file_ref> <file_name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__opencl_ati_101</file_name> <main_program/> </file_ref> <coproc> <type>ATI</type> <count>1.0000</count> </coproc> </app_version> </app_info>
