41) Message boards : Number crunching : Windows 10 - Yea or Nay? (Message 1757376)
Posted 19 Jan 2016 by Profile arkaynProject donor
Call me an old fart....call me whatever.
But my daily driver is on 7. Updates disabled.
And shall remain so until it is absolutely necessary that I do something else.
My anti virus is up to date and that should, along with my router firewall, and some common sense in not clicking on unknown email attachments, allow me to continue unperturbed by MS's intrusions.

My other 8 crunch-rigs are still on XP. That may start to get more problematic depending on the minimum NV driver revisions required by the new Lunatics v8 installer. Won't know that until it is released.


CUDA apps will keep the v7 requirements.

You can download here.

No instructions on how to integrate them into app_info.xml? Maybe to release v0.43c?



v0.44 is in the works, but we are still testing apps that will be included in it.

Posted 15 Jan 2016 by Profile arkaynProject donor
Since all of your work is v8, and they have only released the CPU apps so far.

Your GPU's will remain idle until the CUDA and OpenCL apps make it out of the beta project.

Looks like we will be hovering around the upper 50's for at least the next week or so.

You have a local preference set that only allows you 2.33GB of space, which is probably being taken up by your two projects.

Posted 5 Jan 2016 by Profile arkaynProject donor
I tried the MB8_win_x86_SSE3_OpenCL_NV_r3310 app on my GTX970 but it seems to hog a CPU core as well. Any info on that?

Is there going to be a Cuda app in the near future?


It is currently being tested.
49) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Ubuntu Upgrade to V8 (Message 1753990)
Posted 5 Jan 2016 by Profile arkaynProject donor
After 15 minutes of browsing around I found the alleged downloads for Linux x64, got the files. Spent another 15 minutes trying to figure out what to do the the xml code. Modified the "app_info.xml" /usr/share/boinc-app-seti-graphics to contain the new v8 code. Copied the downloaded executable files into /usr/lib/boinc-app-seti-graphics. Restarted the service boincmgr, then rebooted for good measure. Low and behold I'm still running version 7.6.6 according to the boinc manager. Obviously, I have not modified the files correctly.

Instructions for this upgrade seem to be based on some pretty serious assumptions about the audience. Maybe... it would be helpful to provide instructions that begin without so many user assumptions and simply provide a more complete set of instructions. IMHO.


7.6.6 would be the version of BOINC you are running.

v8 is the newest release of SETI, designed to allow us to process work from other telescopes.
50) Message boards : Number crunching : [resolved] - :) - Nvidia driver after 337.88 keeps failing on Win7Pro 64 bit, what's wrong? (Message 1753750)
Posted 3 Jan 2016 by Profile arkaynProject donor
Maybe it's related to this (excerpt from BOINC log):

03/01/2016 17:42:16 | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GT 640 (driver version 361.43, CUDA version 8.0, compute capability 3.0, 2048MB, 1969MB available, 692 GFLOPS peak)
03/01/2016 17:42:16 | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 1: GeForce GT 430 (driver version 361.43, CUDA version 8.0, compute capability 2.1, 512MB, 460MB available, 269 GFLOPS peak)
03/01/2016 17:42:16 | | OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GT 640 (driver version 361.43, device version OpenCL 1.2 CUDA, 2048MB, 1969MB available, 692 GFLOPS peak)
03/01/2016 17:42:16 | | OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 1: GeForce GT 430 (driver version 361.43, device version OpenCL 1.1 CUDA, 512MB, 460MB available, 269 GFLOPS peak)


Do you see the difference? ;)


The 430 will only do 1.1 for OpenCL as that was all it was coded for.

38-7, actually.
The Packers thank Seattle for the help!


Funny thing was this little blurb.

Wilson enjoyed his best game of the season with a five-TD effort against the Steelers in week 12 and has now thrown for eight touchdowns in his last two games after not having thrown for more than one score since Week 2 but figures to have a much tougher go of things in a road game against a Vikings pass defense that ranks among the top-10 in both touchdowns (14) and passing yards (223.7) through the first 12 weeks of the season.
