Message 1364346 - Posted: 4 May 2013, 10:10:24 UTC

wanted to switch back to just running 2 wu on my 680. so edited the value 0.3333 back to 0.4999 however boinc is still processing 3wu at a time. any suggestions?

You need to change all the...

<type>CUDA</type>
<count>1</count>

to the right one you whant to use

<type>CUDA</type>
<count>0.5</count> ... for 2 WU at a time. etc... still few in your app_info.xml and don´t forget do reset the entire boinc after that.

BTW After put this file to work and you are and "advanced user" and knows how to edit, go to Jason site and try the x41zc builds (you acutaly use x41g), for the 680 go for the cuda50 version, you will notice a big increase in your GPU production due its optimizations.

Yup, unreachable from me in Sweden too.

Same for gpuug.org, I haven't been able to connect to gpuug.org for a year now.
a traceroute and ping works perfect, but the site never answers to http connections.

Edit: It doesn't bother me though, because I don't need to go to gpuug.org. It works when I connect with my mobile connection though, so it's probably something my ISP would have to fix on their side. I haven't bothered to tell them, since as I said, I don't need to be able to connect to gpuug.org.

I have similar problem with another site few years ago, i call the ISP and found that happens because a "route problem", after some time with the suport people they finaly fix the route and all working fine after that. Maybe that could give you a clue to fix that from your side.

I not a network expert , just a normal user, but apears the route is working so something else is happening that avoid you to open the site, maybe someone else could give you a hand how to fix that.

My only guess is something like forbiden sites from your anti-wathelse you use to protect your computer (virus/spam/spy etc).

But, as you could see, by several others post the site it´s working normaly.

I know there is a mirror site of the builds, just don´t remeember the link, see in some forum few months ago, so you need to do some digging.

That would be my site, where we do the testing of the builds.

tyvm that did the trick. would use the x41zc except they are all in zip7 format. if they were in regular zip format i'd have it installed.

Is this going to be a re-run of what you posted 42 days ago, in several messages about 7-Zip, you asking people to convert the file to .zip, and people telling you that it is easy to install and download a 7-zip program, and you reply that you refuse to download and install the 7-zip program?

Please spare us any such re-run will ya :-)

no rerun just thanked him for his help and stated a fact. and since neither the thank you or the fact were directed at you....well i am sure you can figure out the rest of that thought process

It's not like .7z is an obscure format. I've been using it for nearly a decade now. Magazines like PC World has 7-zip in their best freeware lists year after year. Both WinRAR and WinZip supports this format.

http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

Your reason for not using it just seems silly to me.

Your reason for not using it just seems silly to me.


it boils down to this, If I find I need 7zip compressed program to do something that is vital to me or the job I do then I will purchase the program. at the moment boinc is not a mission critical program nor are the addons for it. would I like to use the lastest optimize app, sure but it isnt a requirement to crunch. I asked once if someone would be willing to convert the file I needed which was for using my onboard intel graphics to crunch, i didnt get any offers and I as fine with that. when someone asked why I didnt just download and install 7zip I explained why I didnt want to. To me at the moment the program is not needed.
