Russian entrepreneur launches $100 million search for aliens, backed by Stephen Hawking



A Russian entrepreneur has launched the biggest and most expensive search for alien life ever, backed by famous scientists including Stephen Hawking and Frank Drake.

Yuri Milner, who funds a range of science prizes, has launched a $100 million project called Breakthrough Listen that will give scientists some of the most promising chances to find human life in the universe.

Just FYI, there is another, quite simple, option. I recently bumped into this as well.

Here is the solution I was pointed to.
or You can open up the .cl file in text editor and replace all occurences of bool2 with bool_2. Then file-save. Exit.


The CL file referred to is in BOINC's subfolder in ProgramData.

You shouldn't be running SETI@Home on a laptop. Period!

It's utterly wrong.
SETI@home GPU apps developed on netbook, just FYI.
Any computational device can be used provided user of device have some will to solve issues that may appear on some.

I'm not saying you can't (develop or compute). Just that you shouldn't.

Thank you all. Its working now using the solution from the thread above

I recently bought a gtx 970. Since then i've been getting "Postponed: CL file build failure" on astropulse tasks. How come?

I'm using lunatics 0.43a installer

I have not changed any of the settings in the software, should I?

You should probably just turn off CPU computing and only use the GPUs. Furthermore if you are interested in SETI crunching you might just consider dumping the two 470s on ebay and buying some Maxwell card(s) from Nvidia (GTX 750, 750TI, 960, 970). They are way more effective and will pay for themselves in reduced electricity bill in a year or so.

I have a machine that produces a bunch of errors, and generally does not feel as behaving correctly. Can you tell what the problem might be?

Here is one broken task, another one. The computer.

I was using lunatics 0.41 installer on it but uninstalled it this morning.

I was gaming a bit on that computer (not sure that this is relevant) and scrapped a bunch of intel_GPU astropulse WU. Now I don't have any AP intel_gpu units and the GPU is idling. Have I been blacklisted or something, how can I check? Or is this for a different thread? My other machines' intel_gpus have AP WU at the moment...



This is the machine.

The ideal solution would be the option for "duplicate display on this monitor", but I it is only available when using GPUs of the same vendor. I'm not sure.

Yeah, I thought of cloning but as far as I can tell it is only available on a single GPU with multiple outputs and me google searches indicate there is no workaround... I'll leave it like that for now and wait if a solution presents itself on it's own :)

I've seen this suggestion but do not know what this means. When there is nothing plugged into the HDMI output on the Intel GPU there is nothing I can extend anything onto. I'm using 8.1, and I admit I'm new to this OS, but when the cable is out there is no indication that the GPU exists anywhere in the display options. It is in the device manager however.

Perhaps this will help

Thank you. This worked. However it was not the effect I was going after. My setup currently is that I have two "monitors", one is the one I use connected to a GTX 650 TI and the other is a AV reciever connected to the HDMI of the intel gpu. The problem is that to have the gpu enabled I only need to have the AV receiver on and on the corresponding video input switched - which is pretty much what the tutorial is about simulating - however then I have a desktop surface that is not usable and I don't want and windows keeps throwing stuff there, its not good.

What I was going after is something like this. I have an intel GPU that has AV receiver(TV) connected to it. OpenCL is available to BOINC, but no extended desktop is shown to TV. The issues with this is that either I start with TV off and no intel GPU is present. Or I start with AV receiver and there is a desktop surface I don't want and all the display options I have to remedy this turn the OpenCL off for BOINC.

In any case I think I can manage it. I found out that if I start BOINC with the second GPU enabled and then turn of the AV receiver then BOINC continues to see the OpenCL device. It's a bit cumbersome but I rarely restart the computer anyway so for now it works.

I just bought a Haswell CPU i5-4570 with a HD 4600 GPU. Unfortunately it only work when there is a display connected to the device and I do not want that. I want to use my GTX 650 TI for this. However I also want to crunch AP tasks with the integrated GPU. What can I do? Is dummy plug the only way? I would prefer a software solution as I do not have time a resources to be bothered with hardware :/

But still, 100% is a 100% either using the GPU or not.

What I meant is that your GPU is 250W and the CPU is mere 84W. If you have issues with pumping the heat out of the box these 250W might mean that your CPU is throttling because of heat produced by the GPU. In any case this should be easy enough to test. Just disable GPU computing for a while and SETI should behave more or less like the stress test. Am I making any sense?
