I am thinking about installing it on my Flaky drive, just to see what it does.

I downloaded it with the tool this morning to a flash drive.

m$ has taken away the ability to choose not to install updates so machines will randomly reboot at night and waste time that could be used crunching


That's only on the Home version. In the Pro version you can still choose not to install updates. Even then, you could simply edit the registry to auto-login to a user account and resume crunching right after reboot.


And there will most likely be a fix for for home users soon as well.

I had a friend on her way to Disneyland, she took a detour on some unpaved roads and made it there just fine.

And don't ban Eric!!!

If a ban vote on Eric succeeded, it would be more than two weeks before he even noticed!


Though I am fairly certain that Admins cannot be banned, never seen the underside of this forum software.
10) Message boards : Number crunching : Any suggestions? Astropulse & loading HD 5500 iGPU (Message 1700909)
Posted 21 days ago by Profile arkaynProject donor
Looking for some help in setting up Astropulse in app_info.xml

I have an i5-5300U 4-core (physical) w/ HD 5500 graphics. 24 execution units.
Does anyone know right balance of CPU cores settings to load the GPU to best performance?
How much free CPU does the GPU need?
Right now I'm running 2 WU instances on GPU.
Boinc computing preferences set to "On Multiprocessor systems, use at most 75%".

Boinc Manager Tasks shows "Running (.04 CPUs + 0.5 Intel GPUs)"

Should I use different values in GPU section for avg_ncpus and max_cpus?
Do I also need to add-in a similar section for the AVX app or let BOINC handle it?

I want to ensure the GPU gets enough free CPU, but not quite sure how much to dedicate to it.
Any help is appreciated! :)

Had some rain overnight, but most of it went through Springfield and Champaign.

Once the lawn dries off, I should go out and mow it.


What is this lawn that you speak of?

Double that Chris and you'll have what I've been running for a few years now.

Cheers.


I was running 12GB for a while now, but recently upgraded to 24GB. Of course Win7 Home will only address 16GB.

He is getting this on his work.

ERROR: OpenCL kernel/call 'Enqueueing kernel:PC_find_spike32_kernel_cl' call failed (-54) in file ..\analyzeFuncs.cpp near line 3838.

Did you change drivers when you reinstalled Windows?

Unfortunately today having found out that Media Center is being removed I may have to keep at least one PC on Win 7 as no other program works for my USB TV stick, Just tried some others and they are either complicated to set up or for some reason fail to see all the TV channels, Media Center just works. Oh well.


I will be doing the same as you, I use my secondary PC as a DVR currently.
