Message 65179 - Posted: 19 Sep 2016, 21:53:45 UTC - in response to Message 65167.

I wasn't aware that there were any 8-threaded n-body tasks. Now I know.

Message 65180 - Posted: 19 Sep 2016, 21:54:18 UTC

Peter Hucker, yes, that is the message i mean. But your Nvidia card has no double precision capability, so it can't run Milkyway@home.

Colonywest, i guess it is the Nvidia driver, since it gave me the most trouble on linux. But i don't have much experience there. Maybe some permissions are missing to fully utilize the Nvidia driver. If you find a solution, please tell me. I never got the latest version of Boinc working properly on a Linux system. And the Nvidia driver always made things worse for me.

Oh great, so one of my cards is too new and one is too old! (It won't run Einstein either.) Any idea when the new one will start working? And can Milkyway run on built in Intel graphics? I've got SETI and Einstein running on a few of them (not that they're particularly fast, but I like to put all the chips I've got lying about to good use).

MilkyWay@Home v1.39 (opencl_nvidia_101) are processing without error and waiting for validation. I hope they finally will!

My system is:
* Windows 10 home Core x64 Edition
* Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHz
* NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB (3072MB) driver: 372.70 OpenCL: 1.2

Your computer is hidden, so:
can you report runtimes, please?

Hey BQL_FFM, what do you mean by "i buy it!"

And could you unhide your PC here in milkyway? I would be intrested in how fast the GTX 1060 runs through the Milkyway@home workunits.

Peter Hucker, you can leave your Intel integrated GPUs on Einstein. The Intel GPUS don't have double precision, so they can't run Milkyway. I am a little bit confused by you Nvidia GPU, i can only find a 9500M GS or a 9600GS. If it is a 9600GS it should be able to run at least Einstein@home.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_9_series#GeForce_9500_GS

It runs SETI ok, and it does run some of the Einstein tasks. And it might run POEM (although it's never done one).

It's kept busy 24/7 anyway. And I'll keep it going until such time as nothing will run on it.

Peter, from what i can see, your 9500GS (which is a 9500GT) should be able to run Einstein. It has compute capability 1.1 which should do it. For Milkyway you need 2.0 i think, which the 2xx Series had.

Just edited what you replied to after you read it. I get a complaint from their server now and again saying I must upgrade the driver, but I can't, that's the latest driver that supports it. But the history shows it has done a lot of Einstein tasks. They've just recently created a new project which I think needs a newer card.

You can try the 341.96 driver. Which was displayed when i searched for the 9000 series and window 10. it is from 16th of August this year.

I had 341.95, I'll give it a try....

@Werkstatt @Sebastian*
Computers are now visible.
Runtime for MilkyWay@Home v1.39 (opencl_nvidia_101) is under 50 seconds.
Buying it meant that I now trust the v1.39. Nearly 100% of the workunits are processing without error.

It must be. I've had Windows 10 running on the system now and haven't had any issues so far. It'll pull and run the MilkyWay jobs without any issue. But it's weird that the Linux BOINC client will fault out nearly instantly. But unless there's a way to get BOINC working with Nouveau, the NVIDIA driver is all that can be used for GeForce cards and Linux for projects like BOINC and Folding@Home.

Or the problem could've been that I was running it headless without X installed. I'll troubleshoot it more later. For now it's running, and for now that's all that matters with regard to this, at least for me.

Can't get enough gpu wu's; very sporadic. Is compute power a problem on the servers. I have excess capacity and am only running at 50%.

Bah I didn't read the other posts here so I missed the announcement that there are no more tasks from the separate mod-fit project....I had disabled that project to run climate CPU tasks a long time ago.

Turned on mw@home proper and started getting tasks....SORRY!!!

Just got 10 tasks of 15 seconds each for my Radeon R9 290. Looks like they've either fixed it or they're testing the higher end cards....

Message 65448 - Posted: 15 Oct 2016, 11:40:30 UTC

I posted in another thread that I'm getting computation failure errors on large numbers of MW tasks, but I didn't get a reply there so I'm trying here. This is an AMD/ATI Radeon R9 380X Nitro 4G D5.

I see this in stdoutdae.txt during restart after project reset, or on BOINC start:

15-Oct-2016 12:27:23 [---] OpenCL: AMD/ATI GPU 0: AMD TONGA (DRM 3.3.0 / 4.8.1-gentoo, LLVM 3.8.1) (driver version 12.0.3, device version OpenCL 1.1 Mesa 12.0.3, 1024MB, 1024MB available, 50 GFLOPS peak)

The boincmgr task list display shows "Computation error (0.0176 CPUs +1 AMD/ATI GPU)". There's no corresponding text in the Event Log page of boincmgr, nor in any file under ~/boinc. This is a Gentoo Linux 12-core i7 box with plenty of RAM and disk space. 0.0176 is about 1/58. I'm running the latest versions available of all drivers etc.

It looks as though it's only modfit tasks that show this behaviour.

# lspci -n -s 01:00.0
01:00.0 0300: 1002:6938 (rev f1)

The details of this device are at https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/1002/6938. I'm peterh in that discussion. I hope something there is helpful in getting to the bottom of this GPU problem.

if i understand the problem, i have to tell you that when you use your pc while you run BOINC it can not use our Graphic Card, if you dont touch your mouse for some time, GPU will start run the project which need GPU. Hope i help you.. :/

BOINC can (and should) be set to use the graphics card while you use the PC. It doesn't slow it down, even playing games.
