Can anyone translate text to english please.

And yes: there is no work this time but DNETC@home is good backup project. :-)

I have had the same problem. MW does not yet have an application for Fermi. Older NVIDIA GPUs work, Fermis don't. They have been testing something a couple of weeks ago but haven't released it yet.

Hi Dave,

I have tried Collatz and DNETC on a GTX470 - no problem. Also tried GPUGRID a couple of weeks ago but had problems due to the GPU combination in my PC (low end on board CUDA device and the gtx470 don't work well together). A single Fermi should be ok, though.

I haven't tried Einstein with the gtx470 but from what I hear the Einstein guys where the only ones who got their CUDA app right from the beginning - no recompiles were necessary where Fermi was released. It just worked. Keep in mind, though, that the Einstein CUDA app is no very effective since they are only doing an FFT on th GPU. Everything else is still done on CPU. That's why it needs 1CPU/1GPU as Alexander already mentioned. There are several threads in the Einstein forum that discusses this subject.

Regards,
Michael

Well it should but it doesn't. I have tried Collatz, Seti and GPUGRID. All WUs error the second they are started. The weired thing is that only the GPU tasks error. All CPU tasks are working fine.

This might be true for MilkyWay but for all other projects as well ?

Hi everybody.

I have been trying to get a NVIDIA GPU running on one of my diskless machines - so far without success. All WU error out the second they are started. The error message is:

The machine in question is this. It's also happening with other (GPU) projects. Neither Collatz nor Seti nor GPUGRID are working - always the same error message.
The same has happened with the on-boards GPUs on my diskless machines.

The OS is a home-brew 64 bit LFS (CLFS 1.0).

Any ideas ?
