Sounds like you need to install the ATI drivers.

Not quite that old of a mouse but I still use a Logitech Trackman. My co-workers are constantly trying to steal it. But since I'm the only one with one, it's pretty easy to see who took it.
3) Message boards : Number crunching : Multiple WU's on one card only (Message 2011746)
Posted 12 Sep 2019 by Profile Zalster Project Donor
Post:
The first question is, are you using an cc_config on that machine? That is usually the only way to get boinc to use both cards. If you are, then remove that so that only the Titan is being used. That should prevent BOINC from using the lower end card for work.

If that fails then the next step would be to modify the cc_config with the ignore option. But for that you would need to figure out which slot the low end card is assigned to. I believe Keith just recently found a way to modify the way BOINC list the cards so that it matches how the computer list the cards. Why is that important? It makes it easier for you to know which card is in which slot to place that value in the cc_config for boinc to ignore. Sometimes card 0 isn't listed in slot 0 so it can be confusing when sometimes.

Try removing the cc_config first, reboot and see if that works.

5) Message boards : Number crunching : whole serie of data blocks failing with SoG (Message 2011556)

Post:
I doubt seriously if they even consider any use other than graphics. Unless there is a specific note addressing the failure of the driver with compute loads, I would avoid the drivers.


Remind me, weren't they trying to do real time analysis of data coming in? Hopefully no one updates the drivers....

Keith, he's looking at the servers over at Beta. If you check the server status you will see it there.

Eric also post in Beta about testing it "soon" but that was several days ago.

Stats page hasn't caught up yet but I finally cleared 2 Million RAC. Been bumping up against the target since the beginning of WOW.

Woohoo! Pat myself on the back.

Won't last as the two temp contest machines go back into the closet for another year after WOW.


Woo Hoo!!! Congrats!!

Should be fine. Make sure your PSU can handle all of them. You will need a cc_config but I think you already have that if you already have a mixed machine

Depends on the operating system. But under Linux it's just a few seconds slower than a 2080Ti...

Posted 23 Aug 2019 by Profile Zalster Project Donor
Post:
Never used a USB for running Linux, less so for mint. Obviously there is no driver installed for the GPU. So you need to find a way to do that. Maybe Stephen? I think he runs linux from a stick. Might want to see if he can tell you how to do it. You never mention what driver you used. I thought you needed 428 or later. Good luck.

You need to install OpenCl for astropulses. You installed cuda but not OpenCl. Search the forum for the command. I would do it but I’m donating blood and only have my cell phone.

I think I will wait until after WOW though as that needs the host to be offline for several hours.


Ah dang it...I was hoping... oh well.....hahahaha
