1) Message boards : Number crunching : Porting s@h V7 to Linux (Message 1376800)
Posted 315 days ago by Profile Dingo
So is this the thread that will tell me when Linux (x-86_64) CUDA V7 Optimised apps will be done. Could not see anything on the Lunatics site for CUDA on Linux for the new version ?

Hope someone is working on it somewhere.

This post http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=71728&postid=1372741#1372741 is based on Windows machines, I presume as there are no standard Linux GPU apps so you will need to download and change all the app_info.xml I believe ??

They errored out when I took the app_info file out of the folder to download the seti_enhanced standard app. It did not work so I am sticking with the optimised astropulse app and another project. I have started working on new Optimised astropulse work and I will check to see that they finish OK.

Maybe I can get it working when the new version comes out and I can get a app_info that works.

Thanks for the help though much appreciated.

I think I will just run the optimised application and use the CPU on another project. It is just too hard for me, I am an old fart (64) and it is getting beyond me I think.

Thanks for the help, if you could post what it is supposed to look like for Linux I could then use the CPU as well on SETI.

Thanks

I am trying to setup a Linux PC with NVIDIA GTX275 and downloaded the Optimised app and it had a app_info.xml with it.

When I run BOINC i get this error which is because I do not have the SETI@home Enhanced in the app_info.xml


27-May-13 14:23:16 | SETI@home | Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of SETI@home Enhanced.


I tried to modify the app_info.xml and when I started BOINC it deleted all the work and also the SETI@home Enhanced applications.

Can someone point out where I went wrong ??

Hi

Yes that is a small "i" in the AT1, I double checked the files that I downloaded.

I have the two files setiathome_6.03_windows_intelx86.exe and setigraphics_6.03_windows_intelx86.exe and I put them into my app_info but I guess I did it wrong because they all started to error out with the error

-1073741515 (0xffffffffc0000135) Unknown error number

I have this app_info.xml that allows me to run the optimised apps for ATI GPU and the the astropulse CPU app. I want to add the standard CPU setiathome_enhanced tasks to it but I have tried a couple of times to add the setiathome_enhanced CPU to the app_info and they all error out.

Is there a way to run the setiathome_enhanced ATI GPU and the setiathome_enhanced CPU on the same pc ??? This is one of the computers

I was on a project to replace the manual Army Supply System with a computerised system in Australia. The only computer we had at the start of the project had those big 7 1/2 inch floppy drives and we had the latest in Dbase software. Dbase, not Dbase 1 or 2 or 3 just Dbase. By the end of the project we had hundreds of computers and we even had a form of distributed computing for ou warehousing solution. I have been working in that field ever since and I am still amased at he power of desktops compared to the past.

It looks like Richard Haselgrove's picture was taken just before the end of the workday - at ten-'til-four, PM. It wasn't ten-twenty AM because the hourhand would've been positioned incorrectly. It would've been dark had the PMs and AMs been reversed. I conclude that the cops would have had a happy day unless all there had drunken in moderation or had taken a bus, taxi or train home.


Seti comes back up quickly usually and it is very stable. I think that the admins do a great under pressure from all of us jumping in when the first sign of work not coming to us.
