ok, tested it with my HD4890 and have same problem as poorboy.

looks to be a driver problem.

too bad nothing but Cat 9.4 recognizes the card :(

Cat 9.3 and 9.4 appear to run under Vista though.


but was that with an HD4890? that is what the problem is.

I changed the following in the app_info file and running the beta 8.61 driver:

<avg_ncpus>0.8</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>1</max_ncpus>
<cmdline>n1 f10</cmdline>

and now it completes all wu's but did have 1 vpu recovery :(

nevermind, second batch all errored out.

guess time to throw a gtx 260 in and go run gpugrid :(

this project has now become a waste of my time.

80% of your problems would go away just by increasing the size of the wu's. this would be a good Idea when you switch to the new app.

But for now, it has been placed as a backup project with my computers.


Oh come on, at least read the damn thread. Travis has already said that increasing the size of WUs is on the agenda, but that doing this isn't as easy as we may think.


1% resource share seems to be doing well with the project at the present time. the only real computer now running the project is My atom 230 system.

My dual xeon and core-i7 systems just go through the project too fast to even worry about running the project on at the present time.

The High Benchmarks could be causing a problem if that is how the Core client figures out scores. That is an Old version of BOINC and was known to cause weird results. They did not cheat but should update their Boinc client to a newer version.

You guys should have looked at the returned results and would have found out Either the core client has a problem or the WU's are causing problems.

Every WU I checked showed memory leaks in them. this can only be caused by the core client or by the WU's. This would not be caused by the Boinc Client.
