Would have to be Ati. A developement version of Cuda is supposed to be released when the Gpu portion of MW goes live.


Excellent. Looking forward to it.

Where is the CUDA version? I don't see it on zslip.... Or are you talking about the ATI version?

Good to hear from again Travis,I was thinking the Flu really knocked the stuffin out of ya!
Is this CUDA as in nVidia video cards?( GPU's)


I'm going to say yes... as I have experience with other projects so it's safe to assume that. Especially since ATI cards are already "supported" with Milkyway...

I changed it to .19 and it seems slower... is that right? I figured with a newer version it would be faster.

It's possible you were crunching slightly shorter WUs with the 0.16 app than with the 0.19 app. A ps_s7x or ps_s8x WU is shorter than a ps_s2x WU, I've noticed.

Yeah, I figured that out. It's been awhile since I ran Milkyway and didn't notice the different length WU's.

Thanks guys!

Perhaps I was wrong... Unless it was just different on my main desktop from my laptop.

I see BOINC pulls down a .19 app, is that the same as the one from zslip?

Sorry if it's the explained in the hundreds of posts... but I guess I just need it told to me a different way ;)

Is it okay to use the .16 version? Any major bugs with it? Still get credit for it?

Just wondering as I accidentally downloaded the .16 version instead of the .19 from zslip and it seemed to be crunching away on some WU's...

I changed it to .19 and it seems slower... is that right? I figured with a newer version it would be faster.

Thanks guys for all the work your doing to try and improve things... I have NO idea what it is you guys do, but it's working and I have no complaints. Keep up the good work!

Gotcha. Will we have to detach from the project and reattach again or will it work automatically?

I run a Win XP Pro quad and I detached from MW (having completed all WUs) and then reattached. All client files and work downloaded OK.


I just did that and it worked... it says it's running the Optimised 0.04 app though, shouldn't it say 0.06?

My PC's are all out of work and the server keeps sending a message back of "No Work Sent".. I've reset the project and was hoping it would just download the files I need for the new app (assuming they are required now), but it's not working...

How do you compile the new app in for Windows?

^Nevermind that.. I see the huge thread started because of this.

I've got several platforms not getting any work units when requesting from server... I've waited it out a few hours, but here's the message that I'm getting on 3 different OS's (Vista64, Server 2003, and XP)

"Cant attach shared memory" - What does that mean?
