Thanks in advance, I am running

Linux Ubuntu 11.10 with current updates
NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS (511MB)
Boinc 6.12.33

I don't seem to be getting any CUDA workunits.

Seti log shows Nivdia wu requested but not received

How will I know if the GPU is being used?

What am I missing here?
Thanks
David O. Golien

There is no stock CUDA app for Linux.

1: Make sure that you are running a 64-bit version of Linux
2: Check this thread.

The main thing you have missed is that the servers appear to have locked up a couple of hours ago and *no-one* is getting any new work.

See the "Panic Mode" thread :-)

The thing you seemed to miss was that post was done 18 hours ago when there was work available, there wasn't a Stock Linux Cuda app available then,
As of a couple of hours ago, David's host was still running the Stock CPU Linux apps, and even if there was work available, Still wouldn't be able to get Cuda Wu's as there still isn't a Stock Linux Cuda app.

Is there likely to be a 32-bit Linux CUDA app released once v7 is out?

I was told that 32-bit linux build never worked, and as all my CUDA systems are 64-bit, I haven't looked into the reasons why this is so.

--- several hours later ---
Well I'm stumped. I've tried a few things. It doesn't work... at all. It's definitely something to think about.
