Bump.

You just had to do that didn't you?

It triggered me going through that long list of those non-anonymous bad rigs of mine from last October and seeing how those rigs are going now.

A lot have gone, some have been fixed, but sadly a lot are still in "mangle mode".

If I get a chance today I'll go through my "Anonymous" list from that same time and see how that one stacks up.

Then I may just feel nasty enough to post the full details of all those bad rigs.

Cheers.

Maybe someone could send a PM to Host 6204844 and explain to him how to add the command line entry to his ap_cmdline_6.04_windows_intelx86__opencl_ati.txt file. He just showed up at the top of one of my Workgroups again. I guess his file might have a different name since he's running Win 7 64bit. If he just added one of these lines to that file he could probably avoid most of those Errors. I keep thinking about it every time I see one of his Errors, but, there are so many of those affected Hosts...

Maybe SETI could make a post on the News page about the problem and explain how to add one of the lines;
Command Line Parameters,
High end cards (more than 12 compute units)
-unroll 12 -ffa_block 8192 -ffa_block_fetch 4096 -hp

Mid range cards (less than 12 compute units)
-unroll 10 -ffa_block 6144 -ffa_block_fetch 1536 -hp

Entry level GPU (less than 6 compute units)
-unroll 4 -ffa_block 2048 -ffa_block_fetch 1024 -hp

It might save some bandwidth...and give people sending PMs a link to reference.

This workaround has just been proven to work on one of the top members hardware, Dear AP wingmen. Now someone just needs to pass the message out to a few dozen other users. This is my new favorite case, Error AstroPulse v6 tasks for computer 6923467, 106 and counting...
