41) 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.

Barstow CA had a low temp of 38.4F/3.6C, Historically that has gotten to 28.8°F/-1.8°C, for CA that's pretty low, only the mountains get lower, so far there has not been any snow and any that exists is melting off still.


Flagstaff has already gotten snow on the San Fransisco Peaks.

Upload Server Problem
Our upload server (bruno) is currently unstable. We are working to fix the problem. 4 Nov 2014, 0:24:15 UTC


The 2 to 3 hrs Tuesday maintenace may take all day to get Bruno working properly again. A back up project is always a good idea to keep your computer humming while SETI is acting up.


so is it safe to assume my upload problems (no errors here but got 10 finished tasks that are getting postponed over and over) come from what You posted above?


Yep, looks like they should have gone through by now. But they might be going up fairly slowly because everyone else is in the same boat.

And no customs issues!

Down to five size L and 15 size XL.

( I am holding four shirts, but will make them available, if no response/payment is not forthcoming within a reasonable amount of time.)

OK, what do I do to order one size L shirt? Guess the answer is there somewhere but I can't find it.


You just have to PM Uli.

BTW, where is the list of blacklisted drivers so I can look these up myself?

295.73 is one of the drivers that had the sleep bug which also caused errors, I think almost all projects blacklisted it.

I would either go with 301.10 or 266.58

-oclFFT_plan is case sensitive.

Uh, oh. I actually just cut and pasted the recommendations exactly the way you had provided them over in The GTX750(Ti) Thread for my two boxes, one being
-use_sleep -unroll 12 -oclfft_plan 256 16 256 -ffa_block 8192 -ffa_block_fetch 4096 -tune 1 64 4 1 -tune 2 64 4 1

and the other being
-use_sleep -unroll 10 -oclfft_plan 256 16 256 -ffa_block 8192 -ffa_block_fetch 4096 -tune 1 64 4 1 -tune 2 64 4 1


Could that be why I've been seeing about a 15%-40% increase in my AP run times on those boxes? (Huge decrease in CPU times, though.)


The -use_sleep command will cause the time to increase, but will allow you to use the CPU that is normally dedicated to the app for something else.

Also, where did you put those app_config files?

Moose vs Mower :)
http://www.expressen.se/tv/nyheter/algens-kamp--med-robotgrasklipparen/

Ooooh ooooh ooooh! I want one of those!
(The mower, not the moose.)

Good choice. The moose is not old enough.
The mower is rather expensive though.

56) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : seti@home screensaver constantly restarting - BOINC 7.2.42 on Mavericks (Message 1589342)
Posted 20 Oct 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
Regarding the screen saver: I've temporarily uninstalled Boinc (slowing my machine down too much - I'll be back later) - I still get a 'you cannot use the boincsaver screen saver with this version of Mac OSX, etc' on my screen when I'd ordinarily go to the screensaver. I've deleted everything I can find that related to Boinc, but the message persists. How can I get rid of it?


It should be in either the /Library/Screen Savers or ~/Library/Screen Savers

You should be able to trash it from there.

On the team management page:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/team_manage.php?teamid=30229
Other resources for BOINC team admins are available from a third-party site, http://www.boincteams.com

The link to www.boincteams.com is out of date. The site now seems to be a personal blog.


Actually it looks like it was swooped up by one of the lovely spammers as it all ads in danish.

If they are still there then they should process through till done and you should start to get new work units under the cuda version you selected


Yep, the app_info has all the plan classes in it, so nothing will get orphaned.

Posted 15 Oct 2014 by Profile arkaynProject donor
I`d suggest the VaporX version.
It has much better cooling than the reference design.

I have a 7970 VaporX which is the same card in principle and i`m very happy with it.

http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-VAPOR-X-PCI-Express-Graphics-11221-12-40G/dp/B00IPZW686/ref=sr_1_sc_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1413377574&sr=1-2-spell&keywords=Sapphiere+280x


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202095

About $270 until 10/19.
