I have installed the version 6.10.36 of BOINC Manager. At first the three old projects were deleted from the new version of BOINC.

Then BOINC downloaded 10 Cuda-files but will not calculate them. In the preferences the option USE GPU is activated.

What is wrong with this new BOINC version? What can i do?

Thanks!

What install options did you use? In particular, did you use the "Protected" option?

Your CUDA card probably hasn't enough available memory.

See my dialog with bburwood on the BOINC dev boards for more info.

Additional questions to what John asked, did you install the correct version of BOINC? Were you running a 64bit version before and are you now running a 32bit version?

I ask, as your system got a new hostID. It didn't delete the old tasks, they are most probably just in another BOINC Data directory on your system (!!).

Can you please post the start-up messages from your BOINC?

Today there are 40 CUDA-Files in my BOINC. But there is no calculation in work. The astropulse-Projects are in work, but no CUDA. The last BOINC-Version worked fine.

Thanks.
Martin

Bist Du mal dem Link in meiner letzten Nachricht gefolgt? Inzwischen gibt's auch einen entsprechenden Link hier bei SETI: GPU RAM: any ideas on how to free up a few MB?

Wahrscheinlich hat Deine CUDA Karte nicht genügend Speicher frei. Es kann sein, dass das von den Treibern (CUDA Version) abhängt. Versuch mal etwas Speicher freizuschaufeln (Bildschirmauflösung...) und schalte am besten auch die entsprechende Portokollierung ein (cpu_sched_debug).

Gruß,
Gundolf
