Heh, want to see something broken? Try Just Cause 4, released today. The menus alone are a nightmare, with some using a back-button to get back to the previous menu, others needing to right-click to do that, yet more others requiring you to use the arrow keys to scroll through to get to a back-button. I think I spent the full 90 euros on it for the pre-release plus DLC option. Am now wondering if I should go for s refund. ;-)

cc_config.xml
Added <use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus> under options.

Did you exit & restart BOINC completely after adding this? By completely I don't just mean exit BOINC Manager and restart it because this may just restart the Manager, not the client. Command decisions, including all detection of CPU and GPU are made only at BOINC startup.

Can you also post the contents of your cc_config.xml file?
The only extension on cc_config.xml is xml? If you edited the file with Notepad, it may have added .txt to the end (and with Windows default still hiding known extensions, you may never know!)

I know, but by leaving him alone you can easily check if admin has done something with the information (like banish the spammer). As I understand, Eric wasn't around the past week, so that's probably why the [redacted] is still around. I'm sure he'll evaporate from my inbox eventually. :)

25) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Error in Computation for OpenCl Tasks after Updating Nvidia Drivers (Message 1967538)
Posted 18 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
I'd uninstall the drivers and reinstall them, this time clean. That's an option in the installer.
The error you're throwing is that you're missing a DLL file, most probably in the OpenCL driver part, which can only be fixed by reinstalling the drivers and hope that fixes it, or going back to previous - and known to be working - drivers.
26) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : GPU Missing. Waiting execution (Message 1967456)
Posted 19 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
Did you install drivers, or allow Windows to update the drivers?
Reasons why the GPU goes missing are:
1. Installed drivers without CUDA or OpenCL. The drivers installed by Windows don't necessarily contain these. Always install only drivers from Nvidia's website.
2. You installed BOINC as a service. Because the drivers then run in a separate account from the user, BOINC isn't able to see them, thus no GPU.

It ain't 2, as your 1050Ti is still visible. But it may be 1, where you only have CUDA installed but are missing OpenCL, and with all your GPU tasks requiring the OpenCL SoG application, that then accounts for "GPU missing".

You'll have to be more eloquent about what happened to your system.
27) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : GPU suspende user's request (Message 1967011)
Posted 21 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
GPU Suspended - user request happens when:
1. You've set BOINC Manager->Activity->GPU usage to "Suspend GPU".
(25/11/2018 17:56:49 | | Suspending GPU computation - user request)
2. You've set GPU Snooze to on -> right click the BOINC icon in the system tray->Snooze GPU. However, this only works for an hour, not days, weeks or months.

So go to the Activity menu in BOINC Manager and set GPU usage to "Run based on preferences". Then it will follow the preferences you set via the web site or local preferences. Only set the GPU usage to "Always" when you really want the GPU to be used always, and interfere with anything else happening on your computer.

30) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : SetiAtHome always uses integrated Intel GPU instead of NVidia (Message 1964131)
Posted 9 Nov 2018 by Profile Ageless
Post:
It's also because GPU device numbering starts at 0 (zero). So the Intel device to ignore is 0 (zero)
<cc_config>
    <options>
       <ignore_intel_dev>0</ignore_intel_dev>
   </options>
</cc_config>

On a single CPU system you can't have a second Intel GPU (GPU 1), because there's only one built into the CPU.
But in essence, unchecking the Use Intel GPU option on the project's preferences page fixes all that.

Posted 9 Nov 2018 by Profile Ageless
Post:
You'll need older drivers for that package. The newest drivers don't have legacy support for older hardware, as in they lack the OpenCL compatibility. Instead download Catalyst 15.7.1, uninstall any drivers you have now, then after a reboot, install the drivers I linked to. That should fix things.

If you want Crimson drivers, the last available with OpenCL support for your HD 6xx0 is the beta 16.2.1.

34) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : OpenCL Disabled on NVidia (Message 1963885)
Posted 8 Nov 2018 by Profile Ageless
Post:
The correct file used is opencl.dll, no other. It'll be in C:\Windows\system32\ or in C:\Windows\SysWow64\, depending on Windows bitness.

Windows 10 comes with a default opencl.dll file, one that will be overwritten by the GPU drivers. Having two different GPU brands, you may have to try the driver installation sequence, to see which works on your system. Other people on here have said that it's best to install the Nvidia drivers first, AMD drivers second, but YMMV.

Post:
One other question... Why is the Dual Xeon CPU System also NOT being shown as CUDA Compatible??? I thought all CPUs could use CUDA.
You're confusing it with OpenCL.

CUDA is a parallel computing platform and application programming interface model created by Nvidia, and is proprietary, works only on Nvidia hardware.
OpenCL is a parallel computing platform and application programming interface framework created by the Khronos Group, is Open Source and works on any computing hardware made and maintained by Altera, AMD, Apple (although now deprecated in favor of Metal 2), ARM, Creative, IBM, Imagination, Intel, Nvidia, Qualcomm, Samsung, Vivante, Xilinx, and ZiiLABS.
OpenCL will together with OpenGL eventually be merging into of Vulkan.

Hijacked is a tad extravagant.

In the event that the team founder becomes inactive or unavailable, it is possible to request team foundership to be transferred to another member. To do that the member who wants to be the new founder has to select the option Initiate transfer in the team's page. If another user hasn't requested the transfer within the last 3 months, an option to request the transfer will be presented. Otherwise a date of the previous request will be shown.

Once the request is sent, the founder is given two months to accept or deny the request. If he/she fails to do that in time, the requesting user is given the option to become a new founder. To do that the user must visit the same foundership transfer initiation page. This option is available only for an additional month; once three months from the initial request pass, a new request must be submitted.

This is a lengthy process, however, it is implemented in this way to protect teams from founder positions being stolen.
What you can do is approach the person who is now team founder by private message, tell him you're back and not going anywhere and ask him to transfer ownership back to him. Or initiate your own transfer ownership from the team's page.

In a personal opinion - perhaps it's better to have an active member be team founder, seeing how the new team founder is actually doing work for the project and you aren't.
37) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : SETI@Home may not work properly on newer Android (7 and 8) devices (Message 1962561)
Posted 30 Oct 2018 by Profile Ageless

That still doesn't solve why none of the ARM7 clients seem to like this phone -- perhaps that has more to do with it running on Oreo (Android 8) than anything else.
Pointing back to Mr.Kevvy's fipo:
The technical reason behind this is that the SETI@Home Android client is 32-bit and has never been ported to Android's 64-bit CLANG C++ suite. Some devices have a 32-bit subsystem to run these older 32-bit apps. (much like desktop OSes do so you can still use your older programs in Windows 10 64-bit, for example) but some do not and the client will not launch. Even if the 32-client does work, tasks may complete slowly compared to a native 64-bit client. (Thanks to Dr. Korpela for confirming this.)

I surmise that with 'the client' Mr.Kevvy means the science application(s) here, not the BOINC client (for which it shouldn't matter, although I think it's 32-bit only, so to allow it to run on any Android version).

It still reports your CPU as being:
ARM
ARMv7 Processor rev 4 (v7l) [Impl 0x41 Arch 7 Variant 0x0 Part 0xd03 Rev 4]

Can you post what it says for the Model from your account, you computers, details?

And if you haven't yet, can you post what brand and model Android device this is? I know you said the Snapdragon version, but that doesn't always meam it's true.

For instance, the Archos device I have should have a 32-bit CPU, but in reality it has a 64-bit CPU. I suspect that it lives in the wrong outer casing....

Posted 27 Oct 2018 by Profile Ageless
Post:
No, because the code checks if your GPU is Intel, NVIDIA, AMD or other generic and appoints the right platform (CUDA, OpenCL) accordingly. Mesa OpenCL isn't supported here, plain and simple. But whether Multibeam can run under ROCm is more something you have to ask in the Number Crunching forum (that's where the Linux Gurus live, although most of them will be running NVIDIA)

If you set that you want to test beta software on the Boinc site on Google Play, you will get 7.14.2 which has a new routine for detecting CPUs. It might detect the CPU correctly.
