Message 63059 - Posted: 23 Jan 2015, 17:04:51 UTC

I just converted a machine with an ATI HD7950 and HD7850 GPUs over to BOINC but am not receiving any GPU work units. I checked and both are DP-capable so that's not it. I've checked my MW computing prefs and everything looks fine. The machine in question is M6400T.

The machine is happily crunching E@H GPU WU's so it's not a question of BOINC not seeing the GPUs.

All of my other machines are NVIDIA and are doing fine.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Steve

Also, here's the app_info.xml that I'm using successfully with the Nvidia machines, but not with the ATI.

Thanks for the help.

Are you getting any error messages about why you are not receiving GPU work?

Are you getting any error messages about why you are not receiving GPU work?


Arkayn,

I checked the event log and there aren't any error messages. I went onto my MW@H and Seti preferences pages and even de-selected the option for cpu units to try to force some gpu WU's but no luck.

I'm using the Catalyst 14.10 drivers and E@H seems happy as a clam. But, Seti is like MW; no gpu units.

I just had an idea. I'll switch to a different HD and re-install the OS (Linux Mint 17.1) and then install the Catalyst 13.x drivers that I have archived instead of the Catalyst 14.10 and see if that makes a difference. If it doesn't, I don't lose anything.

Regards,
Steve

You might try reading this thread over at Einstein too:
http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/forum_thread.php?id=11057

They had similar problems but were talking about an Nvidia card and a special command that was needed now.

Thanks for the heads-up. I just saw it and will give it a try. I also have a new Nvidia Boinc machine I'd like to try it on.

The thing I don't understand with this ATI setup is why E@H has been crunching away with no problems while MW@H and Seti won't send me any GPU WU's. That would seem to rule out a problem on the ATI side.

Steve

And now that you posted the error message I was expecting, you will need to install an app_info.xml file so you can get some work from here.

That has both the GPU and CPU apps included.

Make certain that any apps you downloaded have the executable bit set on them.

Arkayn,

Thanks so much for the help. I'll get this onto the ATI machine. Hopefully, I can get through all of the E@H WUs quickly so that MW@H will say that I need work and send me some.

Thanks again,
Steve
