21) Message boards : Number crunching : EVGA NVIDIA GTX275 - Crunching Options...???... (Message 1604776)
Posted 24 days ago by Profile arkaynProject donor
CUDA32 is the best MB pick for that GPU and if you plan on doing any AP's on it then make sure that you use a pre 340.xx driver (but using a pre 340.xx driver won't hurt if you're just doing MB's only anyway).

With your CPU it would be best to upgrade to a better HSF if you plan on crunching with it as well as the standard unit will not cope well.

Use the 0.43a version of Lunatics. ;-)

Cheers.


With 266.58, CUDA32 would be the only option as that is the maximum version that the driver came with.
22) Questions and Answers : Windows : boinc 7.4.27 windows x86/64 does not install, Can't find BOINC.msi (Message 1604775)
Posted 24 days ago by Profile arkaynProject donor
Every time I try to install the update, it can't find BOINC.msi and cancels the installation. This is the BOINC it claims to be downloaded in.... Er, some directory other than %temp%. Sorry, I just tried again to get the error and it seems to have succeeded because I reinstalled / repaired using an older version, 7.2.

Let me reboot and see if it worked, if so, then your installer might not be working correctly, or presenting an odd useless error that would confuse people.


http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Advanced_FAQ

Problems installing BOINC (Windows) In rare cases, installation may fail because of an existing installation of BOINC. If this happens: Quit BOINC if it's running, and uninstall BOINC using Start/Control Panel/Add and remove programs. Install the new version again. If that fails, reinstall the version of BOINC you were previously running (you can get an older version from the download page). Uninstall it, then install the new version. If that fails, download the Windows Install Clean Up utility from Microsoft and run it. The old BOINC version shows up as either BOINC.msi or as a corrupt icon .msi (it'll be the top option). Click on it to select, then click Remove and Exit. Reboot your computer. Install the new version. (Warning: leave all other .msi files as they are, otherwise you will have problems uninstalling other programs).

A great source of credits would actually be Primegrid, my 2 GPU's average around 800k a day.

Thanks, I didn't realized that I was typing in Dutch, lol.
I always have more then one project running and it's the first time I see this.
This is since the new version of boinc.

Google translate was terrible :)


So this should be closer to accurate.


Ik heb lopen in dit onlangs toen ik meer dan 1 project op een computer.

Ik weet niet of dit is iets nieuws dat BOINC heeft toegevoegd.

U deelt de tijd met andere projecten voor uw computer.

BOINC ziet dat de andere projecten een hogere prioriteit voor de computer dus het is veelzeggend Seti dat het geen werk nodig heeft.

Er is geen werk nu toch dus het niet veel van een verschil maakt, maar zodra het werk weer begint u zou kunnen hebben om die andere te schorten

projecten te krijgen Seti te lopen of de waarde van die projecten te verlagen.

Ik verwijderde alle andere projecten en uitvoeren Seti en dan als ik het nodig om terug naar de andere gaan ze dan weer toe te voegen I

Hoop dat dit helpt.

Mine was a Performa 6320, then a 333Mhz iMac, then an eMac and finally a iMac C2D.

The only one left is the eMac and I doubt it will even boot, been sitting for the last 6 years.

Posted 18 Nov 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
OK, quick question. In ap_cmdline I've got this for my 780's:

-use_sleep -unroll 18 -oclFFT_plan 256 16 256 -ffa_block 16384 -ffa_block_fetch 8192 -tune 1 64 8 1 -tune 2 64 8 1 -hp

I just added a GTX760 to one of my machines (as the only GPU). What should I change in that line to be optimal for a GTX760?


I am running this on my 760/670 machine.
-unroll 18 -oclFFT_plan 256 16 256 -tune 1 64 8 1 -tune 2 64 8 1

Runs fairly quickly for me.

I don't use the CPU for anything.
28) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : Status of Mac Pro Support (Message 1602017)
Posted 18 Nov 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor

As I said, I just uncrated it so that means it has Yosemite or in other words 10.10 loaded on it at the factory. I would think twice about backing it off very far because the odds are older operating systems just wouldn't run on it.


As far as I know, no earlier version of OS X will run on a brand-new Mac Pro.

The hardware has been on the market about a year and a half which means Maverick might run on it but I don't have a copy of Maverick and I am not really interested in finding out because the lack of install disk is already making me worry a bit about recovering the system from a storage failure(not hard disk, just Flash memory). I think recovery can be done but it will require very careful backups.


Download the Mavericks installer and then before you run it, copy it to another hard drive or location. That way you will have a backup to use if needed.
29) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : Status of Mac Pro Support (Message 1601612)
Posted 16 Nov 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
Two days ago I uncrated my new Mac Pro and fired up the first application. It works great on CPU task but GPU task aren't being processed. I kind of expected that to happen because a couple of months ago, I saw a post that indicated GPU processing was still in the works. I am not really interested in running special applications because I am not well connected with the developer community and as the result I could miss updates that are needed to keep the system running.
In short is there any word on the status of the stock application with GPU support?
Note: I have not worked with GPU processing at all as my only other computer for 8 years has been a G5 power PC which didn't have a usable graphic card.
Thanks for any information you can provide.

I recently added CUDA processing on production SETI on one of my machines, but I can't download one of the files, unfortunately, one that all the WU's need. I get:

11/14/2014 10:18:37 AM | SETI@home | Temporarily failed download of cufft32_50_35.dll: transient HTTP error

Can someone look into this? The problem isn't on my end, I think...


Just downloaded fine for me from here.

The software is available... as we know, the FBI tracks and records every byte transmitted on the internet and the CIA records and stores all phone calls, cellular and landline and runs real-time analysis to determine threat level.

Unfortunately, they have LARGE Buildings, filled with Hardware.

Seti@Home is done out of a closet :)


Was, now it is in a data center with a Gigabyte connection to the internet.

33) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Not downloading GPU wu's for my GTX 260's (Message 1601096)
Posted 14 Nov 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
When checking the project preferences, have you checked that it says "Use Nvidia GPU"? If not, enjoy your preference accordingly. Make sure they are for the correct venue/location that your computer is set for: home.


I would bet it is the block that SETI put in place against the 34x.xx drivers on older (Pre-Fermi) GPU's.

I would recommend going back to 337.88 and seeing if that allows work.

37) Message boards : Number crunching : 100% cpu usage (Message 1600658)
Posted 13 Nov 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
I have a dual core amd laptop on Windows 7 and I just started to resume seti on it last night. I noticed this morning I was only doing 1 wu at a time, although 2 were showing to be running. I set my local preference to 50% cpu and I am still showing 100% cpu usage. I looked at the running processes and rundll32.exe is running at 48 - 50% cpu usage. Is this a sign of a virus or malware?


Make certain that it is located in C:\Windows\System32.

39) Message boards : Number crunching : why no graphics/screensaver for v7 7.03 (opencl_intel_gpu_sah) files? (Message 1599121)
Posted 9 Nov 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
Why do these particular files NOT have graphics or screensaver to show while they are processing? All the other SETI tasks other than this (that I have seen so far) have them.


Because they are already using your GPU to process the work, showing the screensaver would slow down the processing on the GPU.

Okay, so I downloaded the new new version and I'm reinstalling it yet again. On the first page where I have choices to make, it's defaulting to AVX for both AP and MB. Is that what I want?

Yes, if those are offered, they are likely to be the fastest options. But on the following (GPU) pages you have to make your own choice, with the help of the posters here. The installer isn't clever enough to help you choose between versions (if any) in those categories. Sorry about that.

Done. Now all it has to do is burn off some HP Einsteins and get fed some APs. I left the text file alone until I make sure it's running correctly with no switches applied. Then I'll try them again, without doing anything else to crash the video driver.


Instead of editing the app_info, make an app_config and apply the changes to that.

That way you won't have to update the app_info every time.
