Let me know if you find out how to install the Intel stuff...

Thanks

go here http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/beta/ and sign up and you'll be able to run on the intel gpu as was pointed out just a few posts before

FFA thread block override value:12288
FFA thread fetchblock override value:4096


That might be the problem.

FFA thread block override value:12288
FFA thread fetchblock override value:6144

those are my settings on my R9 290X which is a much bigger card than yours.
43) Message boards : Number crunching : GPU utilization (Message 1459303)
Posted 110 days ago by Profile ignorance is no excuse
I have been running 6 WUs on the GPU for maybe 15hours it nothing has fried yet. I don't remember the GPU temp but it was well in check.

So 6 WUs running on the GPU and the GPU is averaging about 60% utilization.

I noticed that many of your WU's are taking excessive CPU time. This is a loading issue and the ability of your GPU to run that many at 1 time. 3-4 should be fine more than that and you just create a log jam.

my r9 290X does great with 4 Wu's at a time but it is bigger than most other cards out there.

It looks like BOINC needs an update as well. It can only see 2 Gb of ram on the r9 290X though it does know its a Hawaii card.

you'll want a much bigger Case. A mini atx case won't have enough airflow for the CPU or room for the GPU. Consider getting at least a quad core CPU. skip the apu style onboard graphics type CPU/gpu as it is a waste of time and mixes GPU types.

For cost effectiveness look at a quad or 6 core AMD. YOu'll want to have 2 cores free to feed the GPU 3 WU's at a time. Thus my choice of avoiding the dual core CPU altogether. AMD CPU's and mobo's tend to be a bit cheaper than intel.

That AMD GPU is pretty nice. However, AMD GPU's tend to be a bit slower at processing the S@H multibeam WU's but really cook on the AP's. If you plan on running other projects outside of seti then the AMD will do very well.

I wasn't aware you were appointed judge of the discussion. I also suspect your outcome greatly relies on your biases. I.e., you dislike me, so any deep discussion I'm involved in is going to result in your suggesting I've somehow "lost". BTW - how do you lose a discussion on views?

How can you tell? I see gibberish. It's sad when Alzheimer's patients are allowed access to the internet instead of getting the care they need
50) Message boards : Number crunching : stop GPU downloads (Message 1457698)

You can go to your account page and change your seti@HOME preferences to not do GPU work.

Though using the GPU is no worse than using your CPU to crunch work especially if you are only running one WU at a time. It will generate heat but not so much that your GPU will have a shortened life.

If you are having lag problems from the GPU if you are doing intensive gaming or god forbid work, then you can just tell BOINC to not do GPU work when the Computer is in use.
51) Questions and Answers : Windows : Computer won't start up after it goes into hybernate (Message 1456526)
Posted 119 days ago by Profile ignorance is no excuse
seti/boinc doesnt like the hibernate state. You are better off just shutting the laptop down or change your power status to always on and just let it run seti.

IIRC BOINC will still try to run work in the hibernate state and that might be the reason for the lockups

this typically happens when the user installs BOINC using a software manager and gets it from a repository. installing manually over this doesn't install BOINC in the files that they previously resided. I suggest backing off of the upgrade and if possible find BOINC in a repository and all your software manager to install it.

try restarting BOINC. Since your work is predominantly GPU work I'd even go through a reinstall of the latest drivers

America today in my opinion, is in large areas, mainly middle and south middle, just as racist as it was pre WWII. But of course they deny it.


I agree. Racists have learned that they can't just walk up to a person of a difference race or religion and yell an slur at them anymore. They do however do so in much more subtle and less obvious ways. Texas is chuck full of quiet bigots

rigghhttt once again we get into the Catholic church and its magical power to persuade madmen to see the error of their ways. So a madman is going to bend to the will of the Pope. Hmmmmmm I'm thinking not.

a little light reading on Catholic treatment in Nazi Germany

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religion_in_Nazi_Germany

It seems that Catholics were left out of favor. How pray tell how would German Catholics proceed since they were already in low standing

7990 is the dual core. your's is a single core though you can run 2 WU's at time if you are able to do some editing.

make sure your ATI/amd Linux drivers are up to date

you should see the other project data on your account page. It does take a day or so to catch up when you start a new project. You can also see this data on on of the stats pages that are linked in your account page.
