Hey Everyone,

Thank you all for your patience over the last week. I can say server maintenance is now concluded. The BOINC libraries on the server are up to date, and we have the newest available version of Ubuntu running on the server. We added HTTPS to the website so we recommend using that while you browse to best protect your personal information. Finally, maybe with the updated BOINC server libraries, the server will recognize some of the newer GPUs that support double precision (Not entirely sure about this point though).

Thank you everyone for your patience and happy crunching,

Jake W.

I'll test the GPU detection when I get home from work!

Still says

Milkyway@Home: Notice from server ATI GPU R600 (R38xx) does not support OpenCL 6/3/2016 12:52:51 AM


On an R9 290X. :(

Other projects detect its OpenCL and whatnot just fine, I don't get why this project still doesn't. :(

Ubuntu 16.04 amd64
AMD APU A10-7700K KAVERI
BOINC 7.6.31.

I've had this same problem for a while, since before your recent shutdown, and still have it. I've seen from other threads that it's a rather old one!
It's a shame, since I now have einstein@home crunching GPU units with OpenCL quite happily. However, this only got working following some good advice from Aaron Puchert over there. Seemingly the Ubuntu libclc packages are currently out-of-date (0.2.0+git20150813-2), but an update is available from 'git clone http://llvm.org/git/libclc.git'. This did the trick for einstein.
I don't know if this is relevant to milkyway or not, but might provide a clue.
