apologize for delay in responding. needed to upgrade kernel and gpu drivers. always a bit of a challenge on Linux.

Seems to be working now.

Thanks for all the input.

I renamed the app_info.xml file, restarted the boinc client and created a new app_info.xml file based upon your code fragment. I do not have the setiathome_7.01_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu file. It did not download.

Must I download a later version of BOINC to support SETI?

No, you must download a new version of SETI not of BOINC. And of course, you'll have to adjust your app_info.xml file accordingly.

Gruß,
Gundolf


How do you force a download of the seti project? remove the old seti directory and reset the project from within BOINC? and where is the new app_info.xml file.
The one I ran with I got from Lunatics. Do I need to get it from them or is there another depository?

The following appears in my log file:

app_info.xml file does not have a usable version of SETI@home v7

I am using a Linux box and running Boinc 7.0.29

Other projects shared on this CPU are processing, downloading, uploading normaly, but not SETI.

Must I download a later version of BOINC to support SETI? If not then what might be the problem?

Richard,

Thanks. That clarifies. I was under the impression that "all" features were supported. Now I know.

When I started processing for SETI I went to the Lunatics website and downloaded their files to support GPU processing. "Their files" contained a app_info.xml file so I was under the impression that processing for AstroPulse was included. I have never received a notice until now but I also noticed that I was not processing AstroPulse jobs.

What is required to support AstroPulse? I can modify the projects attributes on the website to exclude AstroPulse if necessary but there seems to be "hidden" procedures to support this effort in a complete manner.

Its really my fault. I was not clear with respect to my setup (OS, etc.).

Remove from this thread. I posted it under Q&A. Oops.

I received this "notice" 3/1/13 for the first time. I had downloaded and installed the files from Lunatics back in January. Do I need to re-download these files again and install? or is there something else I need to do?

Posted 625 days ago by Profile robl
Did a "Reset Project" from BOINC manager. This seemed to sync the website data with the manager.

Also new jobs downloaded and the answer to the second question is yes to the GPU supporting two jobs and time slicing.

Posted 626 days ago by Profile robl
the S@H website is showing about 20 jobs in progress but I do not see any S@H jobs in the boinc manager. Should they be showing in boinc manager? In fact I am not seeing any S@H jobs and none have been downloaded today 1/2/13. I merged this computer earlier today. Could that have mucked things up?

If your are running two projects on the same box and both supprt GPUs will they time slice at the set interval. Or must one project be GPU and the other CPU?

TIA

31) Questions and Answers : Wish list : Why isn't there some user friendly instructions on how to use Boinc Manager and Seti@home for newcomers? (Message 1322955)
Posted 628 days ago by Profile robl
These instructions might help. It took me a lot of looking and reading and still I did not have everything needed to support S@H on a linux box. I have not posted this procedure on this site because I have not had anyone read it/try it. If someone would provide feedback with respect to accuracy, errors etc. I would appreciate it. I have no problem posting here or in another thread but would like to be sure of the accuracy of the procedure before posting here and creating more confusion should I have introduced errors. I too am relatively "new" to this and struggled.

you can see it here: http://www.usefulramblings.org/?page_id=3240

I just noticed the post time: Happy New Year everyone. As for me I am still in 2012 and counting down: ~3 hours 18 min

Within the last 36 hours I have noticed that completed jobs are beginning to queue. I have several files in the 'transfer' tab showing "Upload: pending (project backofff: xx:xx:xx) the times are counting down. I have no issues with internet access, mail or uploading other files. So is S@H having server issues? Or am I missing something?

Posted 633 days ago by Profile robl
arkayn,

My understanding is that "5.28" applications are not gpu tasks. If this assumption is correct why would I be seeing them in a run state? Also my understanding is that jobs would be "GPU" only and not a mix of GPU and CPU.

Also the 6.11 application shows in the manager shows "running (0.05 CPUs + 1 nvidia GPU)". Can you explain this.

I really do appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Ron

arkayn,

I appreciate your efforts.

I downloaded and installed the xml files, etc. from lunatics.

The event log show the following: Not sure how to interpret. Seems like it
download some version 528 tasks (not gpu) and one version 611 (cuda_fermi) in slot 1. There are a lot of "discarding 603 errors followed by "vlar*_not found" errors, followed by "restarting of 528 tasks in "slots" and a single 611 task in slot 1. Not sure how to interpret. Is seti accessing the GPU or are things really broken?

The "task list in boinc" is showing serverl 528 tasks of 13+ hours and one completed 6.11 and is running a new 6.11 task.

38) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : GTX 650Ti not being used by S@H (Message 1320045)
Posted 634 days ago by Profile robl
Long story short.

I installed Centos, installed the NVIDIA run script,disabled X11 nouveau, and installed a bunch of other stuff, rebooted and saw the GTX 650ti card. I downloaded the BOINC run file from the site but it was not compatible with Centos. Centos does not provide a BOINC rpm. Tried downloading BOINC source but could not. Kept getting timeouts which I posted in another thread. This morning I reinstalled FC17 and using both FC 17 and Centos procedures was able to get FC 17 to recognize the GTX 650ti. I installed BOINC from the FC 17 distro and I am now online with a GPU processing SETI. I am in the process of trying to document what I did and will be happy to share it here and on my website. I have not yet had the time to put it together. This was way too difficult an effort and maybe this is why I see most "participants" running Win OS. This morning's effort took about 20 minutes but it took hours trying to bring together the various online published procedures and paring them down into a procedure that worked. And as one guy said "this might not work for you.".

Anyway it working and thanks for pointing out the need to install the NVIDIA drivers from their website. The generic install of FC17 saw the card but did not have the necessary cuda support etc. With the install of the the drivers from the website the NVIDIA gui shows cuda installed, driver release 310, number of cores etc.

Actually you are still not processing work on the GPU as there is not a stock GPU app for Linux.

This thread has some useful info...
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=69780
and you can also get the apps from here...
GPU
http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item24
CPU
http://www.arkayn.us/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=cat57

Must be running a 64-bit OS to use the GPU app.


Now I am confused. If I login to my account and "view my computers" it shows that the node in question is running/listing a NVIDIA GPU. Before I installed the drivers no GPU was listed. Why would the site show a GPU and correctly identify it?

what do you mean by "not a stock GPU app for Linux"?

In reading the NVIDIA site's readme for installation of their current Linux drivers I don't recall seeing any mention/requirement for another app.
I am runing FC 17 64 bit and downloaded the driver file from the NVIDIA site for Linux 64 bit.

Here is segment of my BOINC log file:

I downloaded the install script from the Nvidia site and ran it after disabling X. The scripts seemed to work in that there were no errors. I rebooted. Running the nvidia-settings script says that I am using a GPU. Seti does not think so, therefore I must not have it right. I am thinking of switching to another distro of Linux but would like to be sure that there isn't something simple that I have overlooked. Any ideas?

TIA
