Message 61174 - Posted: 21 Feb 2014, 21:24:12 UTC - in response to Message 61173.  

I'm also gettting Computation error for all the M@H projects. Any solutions to this?
I'm on the latest boinc version (7.2.39 x64) and boinc keeps running as a service. All the other projects on the same CPU are okay.

What should I do? Keep on sending errors until someone fix it?

I only see one error from an n-body task. It is nothing to worry about. If it is the "validation inconclusive" tasks you are concerned about, do not be. They will validate when another cruncher verifies your result.

No, on the event log it says the "Computational task for blablabla has finished".
But on the progress bar where it should say "100%", it shows "error".

This happens for all M@H tasks. The other projects are just fine.

Your actual result list shows no errors for modified fit 1.28, no errors for n-body 1.40 and no errors for mw 1.02.

... boinc keeps running as a service.


Do not run boinc as a service. This might be the cause that you are seeing a confused local client showing errors while the results are valid.

I was wondering about that but I've never run Boinc as a service so I didn't want to comment about it.

The status bar is not '100%' (is 'ERROR'), and the tasks are uploaded.

I don't think the problem is because of "running as service"; look my computers below.



Comp. quarto is not running as service, and it works!
Comp. PCCASA is running as service, and it works!
Comp. sala is the computer in question, running as service, the tasks are finishing with ERROR, and I don't get points for them!

Didn't know mod fit WUs gave less credit/hr, I wonder why they do that?


Partial answer to my own question lol, I noticed when the MW v1.02 WUs are running, power draw at the wall goes up a lot on my HD 5850.
Just now total power draw went from ~267w running MW sep. mod. fit to ~291w running MW v1.02! (think I'll start a new thread about that).

It sounds like it, which would lead back to the Service install the person did.

Yeah I noticed that to.I hope they lay off the aggression a bit.
There is no need for the gpu to be running at 99% for a WU.
Just my humble opinion.

The other WUs also run the GPU at ~99% too but still manage to draw less power, I guess they use less of the GPU.

Btw the GPU load is supposed to be ~99% to make the best use of our GPUs ;).

It seems there is a fix to get (at least) Cat 13.9 drivers to work with MW v1.02 afterall! :)

(some grammar edited ;) )

***** Now running on Radeon hd 4870 opencl boinc *****

Here is what happened with CAT 13.9 legacy installed

First checked graphics card with gpu-z, when first started gpu-z gave the following warning :-

quote
ATI OpenCL driver bug detected, skipping OpenCL detection.
Uninstall the AMD STREam SDK.................
end quote

I removed AMD app sdk
through CAT program in add remove programs then installed AMD app sdk 2.7
name - AMD-APP-SDK-v2.7-Windows-641

Same problem in gpu-z and boinc

put the above "quote" into search engine & it lead me to this website.

http://mrlithium.blogspot.com/2013/03/opencl-hassles-ati-opencl-driver-bug.html

It had the following fix

Quoting from Mrlithium's blog

THE FIX:
1. Uninstall any AMD Stream SDK you have right now.
2. Delete amdocl.dll and opencl.dll from C:\windows\system32 and C:\windows\Syswow64.
3. Reinstall the AMD Stream SDK you have. Does not matter which one (I think)
4. Check to make sure the amdocl.dll and opencl.dll files you just deleted have not come back.
5. Check in C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD APP\bin\x86 and C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD APP\bin\x86_64 to make sure the files are there in that location instead. This is where they should be.
6. Try using GPU-z to see if there is a tickmark next to OpenCL. If there is, all should be well, and you can continue to use Reaper/CGminer/GUIMiner to mine bitcoins/litecoins/etc. Or any OpenCL program for that matter.
7. For some reason I had to delete the kernel files that reaper/cgminer had generated such as litecoin-reaperv13.Cayman-256-5760-2.bin but I am not sure that this was due to OpenCL because I tried unlocking my Radeon 6950 GPU to a 6970 (and succeeded, link here) So it may have just been that the number of shaders or something was wrong.

End quote from Mrlithium's blog

**** I only did step 2 alone. ******

Have not restarted computer yet.
Shut down boinc
Restarted boinc it then showed opencl 1.0 support for 4870 in the start up log.
It seems I now also have opencl cpu support version 2.0 sse2 now, I don't recall seeing that before
I think that happened from the developer amd app sdk 2.7 install

Able to run opencl in MW
Able to run opencl in Seti Astropulse opencl 1.00
Able to run opencl primegrid opencl
that is so far.......
None of which could be ran before

Running CAT 13.9
with developer SDK 2.7
gpu-z running with opencl checked.

Thanks to Mr.Lithium's blog and his efforts for trying to make some coins.

Why those drivers stopped things, and how they got there I don't know (maybe from previous graphics card, from igp before that, from previous driver installs, from original win7, don't know). I now know that step 2 alone has worked for my scenario.

Everything so far seems to be running normal, will inform if things change.

Venz out

I'm using Catalyst 13.12 (clean install) and still getting the same issue.

I posted a topic on the AMD Drivers forum... maybe that will help get some traction on this issue :(

Have you tried the 13.9 set of drivers? If not why not, as it is reported that they do in fact work.

Doesn't hurt to try, although I can't help thinking it's a MW issue.
