ATI and NVIDIA cards are different.

BOINC knows how to detect ATI cards, but SETI@Home does not have an ATI science application, and they have not said anything about working on one.

Your computer has no NVIDIA GPU

That's the point! SETI doesn't have an ATI application yet.

ATI has not been willing to assign developers to help SETI@Home (NVIDIA did the CUDA port).

Unless someone volunteers, it may take quite a while.

I've just started getting this problem as well :(

BOINCs been working very happily up to today and suddenly I get the following message

I've checked and double checked, and rebooted and checked again... I have 1.62GB of disk space spare !

What the hell's suddenly changed or happened ?
Am using Windows XP SP3 as usual and BOINC up to date.

Help please...

Your computers are hidden, so I can't look, but....

"Up to date" means BOINC 6.6.38. If you're running 6.10.11 (the latest development version) then that could explain alot.

These "development" versions are likely broken in some way, that's why they're out for testing.

If you are running anything later than 6.6.38, you aren't "up to date" you're actually running a little bit ahead.

It'll be the percentages that you've asked BOINC to leave free on the disk - not obvious, but check the exact wording on each option. There are useful lines in the message tab as BOINC starts up.

Nothing, so far as I know, to do with the new ATI support in BOINC.

when do you guys think they will come out with an ati app and thanks for the quick reply

When somebody donates enough money to hire a qualified programmer for long enough to port the code.

$100,000 should do it.

But if it was left to me, I'd devote the first $100,000 to upgrading the data pipe down the hill: no point in having an application, if the project can't supply the data. The programmer (and on-costs) can be allocated the second $100,000 donated.

I'd love to donate $250,000.00 If I had won the lottery, But so far no such luck I'm afraid, But I'll keep plugging away in any case.

SETI@home Enhanced needs 32.00MB more disk space. You currently have 0.00 MB available and it needs 32.00 MB.


I googled for identical error messages w.r.t.Seti, and the resolution in the past was to modify the three settings of your local Disk Preferences for sanity(Boinc/Advanced/Preferences). You can then select to re-read local prefs file, and see if the problem goes away.

Specifically, make sure the "Leave at least" is not at odds with that 1.62 gig you have free. Also, might be a good time to run the OS's full disk clean-up (including old file compress), as 1.62 gig free is sadly darn close to zero these days. But undertake that only if you're comfortable using such utilities.

Cheers.

One wonky thing I noticed on 6.10.XX is that it either requests GPU then after it retries it will ask for CPU work. then the 3rd attempt will ask for both. Seems a bit of trouble hitting a server 3 time to do the job once

Alright, found my fix...

I had my preferences set to much too big !
I've just halved all the settings for the disk usage and we're off again :)

Hope this helps someone else ?

Heck, my first Macintosh 128K in 1984 didn't have one so I went out and got a 10MB Rodime for $300! I thought I was King S... of Turtle Island.

I was never able to fill it despite all the programming I did in Forth.

Those were the days...

In 1978-79 time frame I was tech consultant for DEC and we sold a mainframe to a small company in Alberquerque NM. The system including software came in at around 1 million bucks, had about 4Mb of ram and some really small (in capicity) disk drives. They paid cash for the system and we delivered the machine to Redmon Washington.
My oh my how times have changed:)
When we finally figure it all out, all the rules will change and we can start all over again.

In 1981-82 I think, I bought my first computer a Vic20, 3583 bytes of memory colour and sound.
I had to buy a dedicated digital casette recorder to store programs on so I was told,
but I later found out that any cassette recorder would have done.
Total cost in 1982 was £250 (U.K. Pounds)
Better than the ZX80 from Sinclair only 1KB, no colour and the sound was a buzzer if I remember correctly.

Not quite ;-) After the January 79 move out of Albuquerque, the Microsoft offices were in downtown Bellevue for a few years, and then to Northup Way (behind Burger Master). The Redmond campus didn't open until February of 1986.

The Dec Mainframes were used to emulate the Intel instruction set so that Microsoft could port DOS and languages BEFORE they even had sample hardware.
