Others play 3rd person shooter, I crunch SETI@home work units. Still waiting for the first signals that proof that we are not wrong.
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Optimized app available for CUDA enhanced version coming? (Message 848387)
Posted 2067 days ago by Profile Dentaku
Okay, this was confusing: the SETI@home CUDA page (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cuda.php) says:

"CUDA apps are supported only on Windows and Linux; Mac OS X support is coming soon."

and the FAQ (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cuda_faq.php) says:

"Releases for MacOS X and Linux are planned in the near future."

Thanks for the hint! SO I have to wait for Linux CUDA support ...

Oh yes:

FAQ (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cuda_faq.php) says:

"Releases for MacOS X and Linux are planned in the near future."

No, I don't have this file - I'm running Linux (Ubuntu 8.10, 64 Bit).

So, Linux is also supported. I wonder why I still get no CUDA work units on my Ubuntu 8.10 ...?

I just got a new graphics card that supports CUDA. BOINC is reporting "CUDA devices found". Coprozessor: GeForce 9400 GT (1). I finished all SETI WUs and now a new WU was downloaded: but no "CUDA" substring in the text ... just the same old "SETI@home ENhanced 5.28". WHat is wrong?
7) Message boards : Number crunching : freeglut ERROR: Function called without first calling 'glutInit'. (Message 667765)
Posted 2500 days ago by Profile Dentaku
Since my Ubuntu upgrade from Feisty to Gutsy, all my BOINC tasks fail after some hours. The last SETI WU:

--------------------------------------
freeglut ERROR: Function <glutTimerFunc> called without first calling 'glutInit'.
--------------------------------------

?
8) Message boards : Number crunching : How many BOINC projects have a screen saver? (Message 660259)
Posted 2512 days ago by Profile Dentaku
Project Beta Win32 Graphics Linux Graphics BBC Climate Yes ? CPDN CPDN Beta Yes Yes Einstein Pirates Yes Yes Laden Classical Yes ? LHC Yes ? MalariaControl Yes ? QHC Yes ? Rosetta Ralph Yes No Seasonal Attr. Yes Yes SETI Yes Yes Spinhenge Yes ? World Community Grid Yes ?



The answer for World Community Grid is yes/no as some applications of this project offer graphics on linux and some don't.

The answers to this question also need to state their system! On Linux, many BOINC projects don't offer graphics and/or a screensaver.
10) Message boards : Number crunching : 64 Bit - would it be worth it for SETI@Home tasks? (Message 659077)
Posted 2515 days ago by Profile Dentaku
I have 64 BIt BOINC 5.10.21. And since yesterday, SETI updated itself to 5.28 "Multi-Beam". Is this a special 64 bit version of just the 32 bit version in a 64 bit "wrapper" (only recompiled)?
11) Message boards : Number crunching : over night calculation: only 1 task on 2 cores (Message 659070)
Posted 2515 days ago by Profile Dentaku
Based on prefs - which are on all projects 100% cpu, 2 processors.
Some hours later I noticed that BOINC continued as expected: 2 tasks running. But it took several hours until the second task switched to running again. strange ... :-/

Last night I left my computer on also running boinc. this morning, only 1 task is running, and 3 other tasks are in state "waiting to run". ried pressing suspend + resume for those tasks, but they don't start. the messages window doesn't show any errors ... ?
13) Message boards : Number crunching : Tumbling in graphics: switch off? (Message 658708)
Posted 2515 days ago by Profile Dentaku
Is it possible to switch off the tumbling when the graphics are displayed? I can stop it while holding the left mouse button, but I would prefer nombling at all.
14) Message boards : Number crunching : SETI@home 5.28 ... "Multi-BEAM" ... ? (Message 658658)
Posted 2515 days ago by Profile Dentaku
I just noticed some different graphics today in a new work unit. It says "Multi-Beam" at the top left. What does it mean?

Me too - since 24 May 1999! :-)

When I upgraded from my old 900MHz Athlon to a new AMD X2 3800+ EE, my world position changed dramatically from falling behind to climbing up to almost the old days high positions. Now, it's declining again and I'm looking forward to the new quad core Phenoms ... then I will dedicate 3 cores to BOINC and 1 left for all the other stuff I do ... ;-]
16) Message boards : Number crunching : 64 Bit - would it be worth it for SETI@Home tasks? (Message 658632)
Posted 2515 days ago by Profile Dentaku
SETI@home also works on 64 Bit OS with 64 Bit BOINC - and it runs quite l on my Ubuntu 7.04 64 Bit system.

But it's not a 64 Bit optimized version (see http://boincstats.com/forum/forum_thread.php?id=1774). What's the reason that there's still no 64 Bit SETI@home? No development time left? Or would SETI@home WU's benefit just a little or not at all from 64 Bit code?

Thank god, there are multiple projects on BOINC - so no problem.

Give me quad core - now!

Yup! That's the trick! Thanks! :-)
19) Message boards : Number crunching : How to autostart boinc? (Message 2095)
Posted 3719 days ago by Profile Dentaku
I tried to create a symbolic link into my ~/.kde/Autostart/ folder but when i retsart the computer, boinc doesn't start. I also tried to create a script:

#!/bin/bash
~/Programme/BOINC/boinc_3.18_i686-pc-linux-gnu &

in the Autostart folder and made it executable (chmod +x) but this also doesn't do anything.

Then i started this bash script in a shell manually and the following apperas:

2004-06-25 22:04:58 [---] Starting BOINC client version 3.18 for i686-pc-linux-gnu
Enter the URL of the project: You should have already registered with the project
and received an account key by email.
Paste the account key here: 2004-06-25 22:04:58 [---] Renaming account_.xml to account.xml
boinc_3.18_i686-pc-linux-gnu: cs_account.C:37: std::string filename_to_project_dirname(const std::string&): Assertion `starts_with(filename, "account_")' failed.
SIGABRT: abort called
Exiting...


of course, i already have an account and also started boinc successfully by hand. if i start it directly, it works.

???
