How can somebody have >50 RAC if server says 99.9% of the time GOT 0 NEW TASKS !!!! My RAC fell down during those few days under 1000, in 3 weeks it will be close to 0. What about new people without luck of getting any work?

Yes, release ATI app for Linux, please. CUDA for all systems is under construction now, but it makes sense to make app for stronger cards first and ATI is the one. I hate running my machine under Win just to be able to run Milky on GPU. :-( And I do not think there are more guys with NVidia GTS/GTX 200 cards than Linux ones with ATI 38xx/48xx.

I have Win32 on Phenom 9850 (I wish to have 64 bit, but that's the only Win license I have), Radeon 3850 and Catalyst 8.12, 0.19e application - all works well for 3 days now, just MW server sends work very rarely. Uninstall 9.2 and try 8.12 instead.

I have Windows7 machine available with 4870x2 graphics and it is said in the manual that Catalyst driver is not fully installed in Windows7 and needs manual extraction of three files in order to make MW work. It says in Readme file:

Note on Windows 7:

The Catalyst driver does not install the CAL libraries on Windows 7. One has to extract them from
the driver package (usually using the expand command) and put them in the Windows\system32 folder.
The needed files are (the suffix "64" applies only to 64Bit systems):

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

I have tried expander.exe command line extraction the way Microsoft describes on their website, but it showed "unable to open Catalyst.exe" file. How can I extract those three files from the Catalyst installation package? Could somebody put exact describtion of extraction, or even extract and hang those three files online for download in a ZIP file for both 32 and 64 bits?

I do not have any issues with 19.e version, runs smoothly without issues, just Milky server does not send work constantly during the day. My screensaver is set to 10 minutes, WinXP32bit home, ATI 3850, Catalyst 8.12. I am patiently waiting for Linux version.

One more question - how do you prevent other project to soak all cache for WUs? I want to crunch Einstein on CPU along with Milky on GPU, but Milky is limited for 6 WUs/CPU, then Einstein fills up the cache (I have it set for 1 day) and then Milky does not request more work. I had to put No New Work for Einstein and suspend couple of its WUs to keep GPU busy.

Any news on Linux version? Booting to Windows is like return to 19th Century for me. ;-)
