A brain is a computer, so anyone without a brain. Like I said, Bill Gates introduced MS-DOS...

Naaaa, BOINC isn't a word, but 'Join Team England' are certainly 3 words :P

So have you all Joined BOINC Synergy yet?

I feel like the cow tho.

Become one with the cow.

The cow far predates BOINC for distributed computing.

I predate distributed computing by far.

Anyone here predate computing? ;)

Must be me. I can remember using log tables and slide rules before Bill Gates even invented MS-DOS.

Oh dear, I remember those from school, too! Although by the time I hit the real world, calculators were around.

Hmm, that reminds me of an old mechanical Facit calculator I played around with. Wonder how it would crunch? Assuming you could find someone who could still use it!

Ice, your a relic! ;P.
I'm older than Boinc, but have never used a slide rule, though I have one. I have a DOS pc. Some of the best games on it.
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

I had one of those mechanical calculators. It was called a Babbage Analytical Engine.

It would be useful to provide a bit more info. What was the error message? Is this on a core 4? Windows or Linux? Optimized apps or GPU optimized apps? How often do you get the error? A bit more information and somebody might be able to help.

Hi

Im running GPU opti on a WIn 32XP.
My card is a 4870 and my CPU a core I7 920.

When i launched Milky at the beginning i have only 8 Wu at the same time. When this 8 first ones are finished, more and more WU start together. Only 8 or 10 runs correctly the other one get in error immediatly.


I juste changed avg_cpu to 0.8 and without any project i always have 8 WU at the same time.

With another project, 5 milky WU running.

Everything looks good, but im not sure that i have the best setting.

hx for u're help

I am reproducing part of the 'readme.txt' file that comes with 0.19d so that I can remove the proviso on zslip about Cataylst 9.2 not working;

Note on Catalyst 9.2:

ATI/AMD renamed the CAL libraries with the latest driver release. To get the GPU app running,
duplicate the following files in your Windows\system32 folder (the suffix "64" applies only to
64Bit systems):

aticalrt.dll or aticalrt64.dll
aticalcl.dll or aticalcl64.dll
aticaldd.dll or aticaldd64.dll

Now Rename the copies to

amdcalrt.dll or amdcalrt64.dll
amdcalcl.dll or amdcalcl64.dll
amdcaldd.dll or amdcaldd64.dll

You should have now 6 dll files in your Windows\system32 folder, 3 named amdcal*.dll and 3 with
the name atical*.dll. A simple rename of atical*.dll to amdcal*.dll is not sufficient!

Will these work ok with the new BOINC manager 6.4.7? Just had to do a re-install and 6.4.5 seems to have vanished.

Yes 6.4.7 should be fine. I've been using 6.4.6, which some had problems using, so it's been re-issued as 6.4.7, which should be OK.

I haven't been able to get the ATI v9.2 to work yet on my i7 running XP Pro 64-Bit & 4870 Card. I Installed it & just tried it without any other changes, All I got was Computation errors, so I copied/pasted/renamed the 3 files like described above & then all I got was VPU Recover Errors ???

The WU doesn't error out with the VPU Error's but just doesn't run ...

Sorry if I'm being obvious, but did you reboot after: copying the files, renaming them and moving the renamed files into windows\system32 ?

I've tried the 9.2 drivers and got partial success (after a while ATI kept crashing), so I'm now using 8.12 both for my 4850 and 4870 successfully.

Limited success at best, I rebooted it @ still got the VPU Errors, went back to v8.12 @ it's running okay now.

Also the <cmdline>n2</cmdline> entry to the v0.19d Application File doesn't do anything, at least for me it doesn't anyway. It starts out running 1 WU but the longer BOINC runs the more Milkyway WU's start up, as many as 6-7. So the Default of 3 and the <cmdline>n2</cmdline> or what ever you want to put in there don't work with the v0.19d Application ...

LOL ... Just discovered the WU's will run just as fast without the app_info.xml file, I had edited it to n1 to see what that would do and forgot to rename it back to .xml from .txt but the Milkyway WU'a ran just as fast. It was just running 1 @ a time but sometimes I think that is the best @ fastest way to run them.

When you say, 6-7, do mean that it says they are running under 'Status', but only 2 (when n2) are actually making progess under 'Progress' (ie, only 2 are actually running/crunching) ?

Yes, I just checked a few of the other Box's and 6-7 Milkyway WU's where running & showing % Progress while only 1 Regular WuU was running. I set all ATI GPU Running Box's to <cmdline>n2</cmdline> this morning but it isn't working.

This is what frustrates me running the GPU WU's, right now my i7 is running 6 Regular WU's & 1 Milkyway WU with 4 Milkyway WU's in a running/waiting state. So The GPU WU's are taking up 2 Cores to run 1 WU !!!

It's like theres no happy medium right now on mt Box's, 1 run or 7 run ...

My gripe du jour is that the current '6 WUs/cpu [=core?]/day', while great for the PCs running the cpu code, is less than an hour's work for my pc with the Radeon 3800 series card which is running the optimised version. an hour after midnight gmt i started getting the 'reached per-cpu limit of 6 tasks' message. Luckily the 3800 crashes so often, requiring a reboot, else it'd be permanently out of work.
Cheers,

PeterV
