I have a 6950 and the same problem, every WU end with Computation error.

Milkyway has no checkpoints, and i doubt it will ever have any, so no, if you stop a Milkyway WU, it restart from 0

But a modern GPU crunch a WU in few minutes, so it isn't really a problem...

Luckily for him there are some italians here...

The google translation is pretty correct, interesting! He is asking why recently when he start BOINC, it says "Failed to connect to the core client"

As far as i know this is a problem related to new versions... well i'll reply to him in italian now

Ciao Francesco, questo è un forum dove bisogna parlare in INGLESE, non in italiano. Hai aggiornato BOINC ultimamente? Pare che sia un problema collegato alle ultime versioni quello che rilevi tu.
Se ti va, chiedi di questo problema sul forum del team italiano BOINC.Italy http://www.boincitaly.org/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=2 Lì si può parlare in italiano lol :P

So I've been working on making the new project specifically for GPUs. This is will alleviate the no work situation because we will be giving much longer workunits to GPU clients. However, I've discovered a bug in a python script that was made when compiling. I need labstaff to give me permission to overwrite the file, but am not sure they work on weekends. So hopefully by early next week we can have a new project up!

This was 10 days ago. What's up? are you reinventing the wheel?
It would be nice with an update.

I thought we were here to crunch and complete all the WU's, not to take care of the server and make sure it is online and be sure that all get their WU's...

I usually run BOINC + Folding@Home GPU client, i have a Q9550 and a ATI 3870, and it run VERY well

BOINC crunch his WU (only cpu of course) and Folding crunch happily his gpu WU, both without problem.

And well, i suggest to use Folding@home to keep busy your GPU, it run well, has WU pretty long, stable WU and, most important, it don't interfere with your computer use (with the ATI app milkyway make my pc...well, not usable), you can even play videogames without problem (but i suggest to pause it when gaming)

Installing it is VERY simple, download the client, install it and then put in a username and it will start crunching. I suggest you to go into the option and select "slightly higher" for the priority, so you are sure that the GPU will work always at 100% (your cpu will be used 5-10%) and that's all, happy crunching.

Uh, useless to say, DON'T use both Folding GPU and milkyway GPU lol :P
