Message 1318876 - Posted: 22 Dec 2012, 17:18:17 UTC

I just brought online a new computer running Linux Ubuntu 12.04 and a GTX650 Ti graphics card. My linux logs indicate that the OS knows about the GTX 650, I have checked the appropriate "boxes" on the SETI web site but I do not see that this unit is being utilized. The boinc logs state "No usable GPUs found". Any ideas/suggestions?

Drivers. You'll need to install drivers from the Nvidia site, not ones installed through Ubuntu, as these will usually lack the CUDA/OpenCL components.

I downloaded the install script from the Nvidia site and ran it after disabling X. The scripts seemed to work in that there were no errors. I rebooted. Running the nvidia-settings script says that I am using a GPU. Seti does not think so, therefore I must not have it right. I am thinking of switching to another distro of Linux but would like to be sure that there isn't something simple that I have overlooked. Any ideas?

TIA

I don't think you should disable X at any time.
And it also seems to be a lack of CUDA Toolkit and SDK.

Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Cuda and http://sn0v.wordpress.com/2012/05/11/installing-cuda-on-ubuntu-12-04/ for ideas.

Long story short.

I installed Centos, installed the NVIDIA run script,disabled X11 nouveau, and installed a bunch of other stuff, rebooted and saw the GTX 650ti card. I downloaded the BOINC run file from the site but it was not compatible with Centos. Centos does not provide a BOINC rpm. Tried downloading BOINC source but could not. Kept getting timeouts which I posted in another thread. This morning I reinstalled FC17 and using both FC 17 and Centos procedures was able to get FC 17 to recognize the GTX 650ti. I installed BOINC from the FC 17 distro and I am now online with a GPU processing SETI. I am in the process of trying to document what I did and will be happy to share it here and on my website. I have not yet had the time to put it together. This was way too difficult an effort and maybe this is why I see most "participants" running Win OS. This morning's effort took about 20 minutes but it took hours trying to bring together the various online published procedures and paring them down into a procedure that worked. And as one guy said "this might not work for you.".

Anyway it working and thanks for pointing out the need to install the NVIDIA drivers from their website. The generic install of FC17 saw the card but did not have the necessary cuda support etc. With the install of the the drivers from the website the NVIDIA gui shows cuda installed, driver release 310, number of cores etc.

Actually you are still not processing work on the GPU as there is not a stock GPU app for Linux.

This thread has some useful info...
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=69780
and you can also get the apps from here...
GPU
http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item24
CPU
http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=cat57

Must be running a 64-bit OS to use the GPU app.

Now I am confused. If I login to my account and "view my computers" it shows that the node in question is running/listing a NVIDIA GPU. Before I installed the drivers no GPU was listed. Why would the site show a GPU and correctly identify it?

what do you mean by "not a stock GPU app for Linux"?

In reading the NVIDIA site's readme for installation of their current Linux drivers I don't recall seeing any mention/requirement for another app.
I am runing FC 17 64 bit and downloaded the driver file from the NVIDIA site for Linux 64 bit.

Here is segment of my BOINC log file:

This page lists the applications that SETI currently has.
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/apps.php

For Linux, SETI has applications for...


SETI@home Enhanced
Linux/x86 6.03 21 Aug 2008 | 22:10:45 UTC
Linux/x86_64 5.12 1 May 2006 | 22:43:19 UTC
Linux/x86_64 5.28 8 Oct 2007 | 21:55:08 UTC
AstroPulse v6
Linux/x86 6.01 13 Mar 2012 | 20:54:26 UTC
Linux/x86_64 6.03 4 Apr 2012 | 22:02:25 UTC


You will notice that for Windows, quite a few show this.

Windows/x86 6.08 (cuda) 21 Jan 2009 | 1:43:04 UTC
Windows/x86 6.09 (cuda23) 9 Dec 2009 | 17:26:45 UTC
Windows/x86 6.10 (cuda_fermi) 8 Jun 2010 | 22:50:03 UTC


Those are the applications that SETI has provided for GPU's on the Windows platform.

They have not released an application for Linux to use the GPU, but Lunatics has taken the optimized code and released a application that will allow Linux users to use their GPU's on SETI.

arkayn,

I appreciate your efforts.

I downloaded and installed the xml files, etc. from lunatics.

The event log show the following: Not sure how to interpret. Seems like it
download some version 528 tasks (not gpu) and one version 611 (cuda_fermi) in slot 1. There are a lot of "discarding 603 errors followed by "vlar*_not found" errors, followed by "restarting of 528 tasks in "slots" and a single 611 task in slot 1. Not sure how to interpret. Is seti accessing the GPU or are things really broken?

The "task list in boinc" is showing serverl 528 tasks of 13+ hours and one completed 6.11 and is running a new 6.11 task.

????????????????

Seti is now using your GPU and you have completed several work units so far.

Still waiting for them to validate against your wingmate.

The timed out WU's are because SETI does not run VLAR units on Nvidia GPU's.

arkayn,

My understanding is that "5.28" applications are not gpu tasks. If this assumption is correct why would I be seeing them in a run state? Also my understanding is that jobs would be "GPU" only and not a mix of GPU and CPU.

Also the 6.11 application shows in the manager shows "running (0.05 CPUs + 1 nvidia GPU)". Can you explain this.

I really do appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Ron

You have both CPU and GPU applications installed currently.

The 5.28 tasks are for the CPU only while the 6.11 tasks are for the GPU only.

If you only want to use the GPU, you will need to change your preference on here to only use it.

BOINC has to use the CPU for a few seconds to load the work onto the GPU, so that is why it states (0.05 CPUs + 1 nvidia GPU).
