21) Questions and Answers : Windows : XP to Vista/ Select a computer question (Message 1528437)
Posted 42 days ago by Profile arkayn
Recently updated from XP to Vista on my Dell Inspiron 530S, DL'd the Boinc software, dl'd new projects; things running well; life is good

The other day I tried to log on and I see a dialog box titled
BOINC Manager- Select Computer

Under that: Another instance of BOINC Manager is already running on this computer. Please select a client to monitor

Under that is a drop down titled Host Name (no suggestions in the drop down)
Under that is a Password box

I'm not sure what BOINC is looking for here. When I look in the Control Panel I see the version I dl'd on 6/11/14. Any ideas on how to proceed from here?


Type localhost in the first box, it should autofill the password.

Do you have the 32-bit libraries installed on that system.

There is a test suite available from either Lunatics or Crunchers Anonymous. I have not checked if You are a member of either of those, but it would be easiest to download from those places. I'm not sure if it is available without a login.

It is a bunch of testWu's and a shell script that runs a reference/standard app and multiple your own apps one after another and displays the execution times and the validity of the results.

I'll check where to find the needed files (unless someone with more knowledge can answer immediately.) EDIT: Found it, please check if You can open it.

Can you open this link http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?board=9.0 ?


Yes, you can download without an account.

Best bet would be BOINCtasks.

You will have to install Wine to use it, but it does work.

I run lunatics on a Win7 I7 feeding two GTX770's and have my ap_cmdline_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_NV.txt set to:

-unroll 10 -ffa_block 6144 -ffa_block_fetch 1536 -hp

because the instructions in ReadMe_AstroPulse_OpenCL_NV.txt say that's what to set it to for mid range cards with less than 12 compute units.

The GTX770 only has 8. You may be inducing some memory thrashing because you're trying to feed your 770 too much at a time.

My AP times are averaging around 1,800 seconds while your AP times are around 11,000 seconds.

The only other difference I see is that you have some 9500GTs installed along-side your GTX770's. I have some 9500GTs sitting on a shelf because they're only slightly faster than a core. They're dogs. If I were you, I'd remove them because they may be the biggest factor is slowing down your 770s--but that's only a guess because I'm not absolutely sure how the scheduler deals with two such *widely* different cards in the same system.


I think I would go with the 9500GT being an issue. I run this on both my 670 and 760 with no problems.

29) Message boards : Number crunching : Anniversary certificates [Resolved] (Message 1520258)
Posted 66 days ago by Profile arkayn
Greetings,

I just downloaded a new anniversary certificate marking my 15th year here at SETI@Home. Windows Photo Viewer and PhotoFiltre cannot display the image. I saved it as an image file. What needs to be done or used to view this image on my PC? Or, is there something I need to do to get the image saved as an image if "Save image as..." is not the proper method for saving the image? I have Win7 Pro 64 bit and use the latest version of Firefox (which is looking more like Chrome than my beloved Firefox of the past).

Any info would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance. :)

Keep on BOINCing...! :)

What's the file extension?


http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert1.php

Looks like it is generated dynamically.

Best bet might be a screenshot.

I just can't get myself to pull the trigger on something I know I'll never use

That isn't the point David. It is a memento and a souvenir of a project that you belong to. You don't HAVE to wear it, just treasure it.


I have mine now...

For one, that version of BOINC is fairly old and most likely has some bugs.

Try at least 7.2.42.

All of my uploads are going through just fine.

Posted 92 days ago by Profile arkayn
My 760 is running around 61 to 67 depending on the indoor temp.

It is also above the 670 in the case.

Both are EVGA, but only the 760 has the ACX cooling.


I'm thinking about 2 x EVGA GTX750Ti FTW.

How are your CPU & case temps?


I don't crunch on the CPU, so those temps are quite normal.

Hi Uli

I'd be happy to get some Tee's and then re-distribute within UK.

Just let me know what the costs per each shirt will be and the shipping costs for maybe 25, 50 and 100 pcs and then we can go from there.

regards
Tim
Founder, UK BOINC Team

PS PM me for my email addy :)


Looks like this idea has died - no-one has got in touch and no posts since 9th April.....

Oh well.... :(


Uli has just been real busy lately, she should get back into the flow of the forums shortly.
