I may be getting old but not that much slower.

Not that that Atari was ever that fast....
22) Questions and Answers : Wish list : Roku / Seti@home screen saver? (Message 1587382)
Posted 16 days ago by Profile Ageless
What is Roku?
What is the CPU?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku, it's a Streaming Player box.

What OS is used?

Linux.

But I doubt one can add anything to it. It sounds very much like my NAS, which also runs Linux and has comparable hardware, but cannot be adapted to have BOINC or a science app run on it. And really, why would one want to use it that way? Doing so will most probably only severely interfere with what the apparatus is made for: in his case streaming (live) video, in my case storing lots of data on the network.

24) Message boards : Number crunching : AP V7 (Message 1585552)
Posted 19 days ago by Profile Ageless
I know what the idea is, but the thing here was that for 606 there were 8 entries, all exactly the same. Then one for 604, one for 608. Just one 606 was all it needed here as well.

Well, moot now, as I changed it to one entry for v7 and 704. So your installer can go add crud again. ;-)

I tried leaving some mention of AP v6 in my app_info.xml, but apparently that won't work. Or according to EL:

11-Oct-2014 22:39:26 [SETI@home] Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform
11-Oct-2014 22:39:26 [SETI@home] State file error: bad application name astropulse_v6
11-Oct-2014 22:39:26 [SETI@home] State file error: bad application name astropulse_v6
11-Oct-2014 22:39:26 [SETI@home] State file error: bad application name astropulse_v6
11-Oct-2014 22:39:26 [SETI@home] State file error: bad application name astropulse_v6

Oh well, removed all trace of it then. For those 17 APs I got the last 3 years, it's probably not worth it to leave AP v6 in anyway. :)

P.S: I did find that the Lunatics installer had put 8 mentions of the optimized AP v6 606 in my app_info.xml, a bit much. Only one mention of 604 and 608.

28) Questions and Answers : Windows : GeForce 6200 512MB VGA/DVI/TV-out AGP Video Card (Message 1580961)
Posted 29 days ago by Profile Ageless
Are you sure that you have the right specs for that card? I ask as https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus states that the minimum Geforce needs to be an 8100 mGPU/8400 GPU to be able to do CUDA. That you're not confusing it with a Quadro.

Neither http://www.nvidia.com/page/geforce6200_agp.html, nor http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce6_techspecs.html mentions CUDA or OpenCL capability.
29) Questions and Answers : Windows : No Screensaver Graph? (Message 1580943)
Posted 29 days ago by Profile Ageless
Well, technically speaking this isn't a card, but a chip. One built into the motherboard of the notebook, as opposed to the Intel HD 4600 GPU which is built into the Intel CPU.

But yeah, you can have a notebook or laptop with more than one graphical output. Even if it's a Macintosh. This, so you can either use it for GPGPU calculations, or to attach more than one external monitor. :)
30) Questions and Answers : Windows : No Screensaver Graph? (Message 1580870)
Posted 29 days ago by Profile Ageless
First off, it's obviously not a notebook if it has an Nvidia GPU Ageless. :-P

Aside from that the owner now confirmed that it is a notebook, I'd like to know why you would think a notebook can't have an Nvidia GPU together with an Intel GPU? Or why a notebook can't have an Nvidia GPU, period?

But alas, sit back and learn. When clicking on Silentgrave's name, then going to their computers list you can read under the GPU heading that they have an "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M (3072MB) driver: 327.65 OpenCL: 1.1, INTEL Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 (1784MB) OpenCL: 1.2".

The M behind the GPU stands for Mobile. Giving you a clue already that this isn't a card sitting in a desktop, because what use is a mobile graphics chip in a desktop computer? When you then put Nvidia 770M into Google.com, you'll find a whole lot of reviews of this GPU and the notebooks it is in.

If we knew which notebook Silentgrave uses specifically (brand and model number), we'd probably be able to find a manual in PDF format which tells us if it's possible to switch from the one dedicated GPU to the other and how to do that.

You may have GPU crunching disabled, but that doesn't tell us which of the two GPUs your notebook uses for showing OpenGL output. Yet since you state that you're missing the bottom half, I can easily assume it is the built-in Intel GPU. Until Intel releases newer OpenGL drivers with a fix for this, it isn't going to be fixed anytime soon.

It isn't a problem with the graphics/screen saver program as this works without problems on AMD and Nvidia GPUs, just not on built-into-the-CPU Intel GPUs.
Perhaps that there is a way (in the BIOS/UEFI) to force your notebook to use the Nvidia GPU instead of the Intel GPU.
32) Message boards : Number crunching : @Pre-FERMI nVidia GPU users: Important warning (Message 1579071)
Posted 28 Sep 2014 by Profile Ageless
More importantly most users never even look at the message boards.

Maybe that they don't read these boards, and maybe that they won't ask for help here. I have found people asking help in the weirdest of locations. You just need some info out there, Google/Bing having picked it up and others on those weird locations will be able to find this info and help those people out.

The info I just posted, I posted on the first of September on the BOINC forums. Goes to show that people here don't look there either, or make use of a search engine to look up information. Of course, all you then need to know is what CUDA version we're talking about, in this case 6.5. So go on, fill in "CUDA 6.5 BOINC" without quotes in your preferenced search engine...

Even Goodsearh has the thread as the 3rd possibility. The only thing that may throw you is that it's a thread about Mac OSX and CUDA 6.5, but just consider that Nvidia's drivers are essentially the same for whichever operating system out there.

Attention, if you have a nVidia card that's 4 years old or older, and have updated to Driver 340.xx

People usually do know what kind of card they have, or can look that up. So then you point out to go to https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus. Any GPU with compute capability 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 will be affected.

Reports on the news about a virus called SHELLSHOCK

It isn't a virus, it's an exploit. In other words, it's not something that people have to download/install on their system, it's code in a program that comes standard with most Linux and OSX, that can be exploited.

36) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : How to activate GPU project on SETI@home? Ubuntu 14.04LTS and Nvidia GPU. (Message 1577211)
Posted 24 Sep 2014 by Profile Ageless
Seti has an Astropulse application for Linux, but not the standard Multibeam one. Which is what it says for you:
In the Boinc manager under "Properties of project SETI@home" it says, under Scheduling, "Don't fetch tasks for NVIDIA GPU -- Projects has no apps for NVIDIA GPU


Astropulse are only available when the tapes have just been loaded, like now.
They need to be separately enabled in the project preferences:
Run only the selected applications:
SETI@home v7: yes
AstroPulse v6: yes
Of course, you'll also need to enable the Nvidia GPU in the project preferences. And do that on the correct venue (location).

And I was wrong, there is no GPU app for the Mac.
37) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : seti@home screensaver constantly restarting - BOINC 7.2.42 on Mavericks (Message 1577166)
Posted 24 Sep 2014 by Profile Ageless
I have the most recent version of BOINC

The 'most recent version of BOINC' on the Mac is also still 7.2.42, which has the problem. It is fixed in the present 7.4 betas. But just hold off on updating till that's released.

Seti does not have a default CUDA or OpenCL application for GPUs. Only for Windows and Macintosh.

Oh come on, it must be great to be able to dump some unfinished code onto a working server, then go home to the family and see what to do about it the next day, or even later. Something we all wouldn't mind being able to do. ;-)

I can finally do them. They now work for me, both as HTML code and as the actual character. ;-)

Then work your magic here too, please.

I've got a 9,000+ character, 229 line code snippet in my private message inbox from the server problems at the beginning of this month, and it's being rendered all on one line.

Talk about thread s - t - r - e - t - c - h - i - n - g ...

No, I'm not an admin here.
But why not copy that whole thing and add it directly into Wordpad or Notepad++ ? That'll add the line-ends again.

As for the <> signs in [code/] and [pre/]containers, all of those would go missing for me. Despite the containers, the code was executed, just as I have when I do not use the containers. Which makes for an interesting cc_config.xml example...

I had to resort for a while in translating the whole cc_config.xml example to use &lt; for < and &gt; for >, before that broke. But as I said, that works now for me. I'm just back to the situation where I need to remember that any XML code I write without containers will get executed and is not visible, not for you, not for me. :)
