21) Message boards : Number crunching : Errors on android, all tasks (Message 1959222)
Posted 12 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
Up to 112 errors as of this post. Still no new app being used like 8.01.

v8.01 is a 64-bit application. Your ARMv7 CPU isn't 64-bit, it's a 32-bit CPU.
So your CPU ought to be able to run the armv6_* and armv7_* applications, but there's not guarantee it can. Some Android devices just cannot run these tasks.

I am running solely Android devices. My oldest phone, a Huawei G700 is coming up on its one year anniversary on the 17th and it still hasn't figured out which of the 12 applications is the fastest it can run with. It's got a 32bit CPU, Android 4.2.1, it runs the same applications your device is erring on, 24/7 all year round @ 2 KWh electricity a year.

So you probably want to find a project you can run on that device, I saw it did manage to run Universe@Home.

I wish somebody could write a SETI@home app that uses it.
Writing isn't necessary. Just have someone port the OpenCL application to be able to use the Mali GPUs. They're already detected. And as far as I know, the base program for the Intel, Nvidia and AMD OpenCL apps are one and the same (although these are probably optimized for specific brand GPUs).

So it just needs porting to Android. Where you then probably have to problem that the API doesn't allow for using of the GPU, just as it now doesn't allow for using all foreground and background CPUs at the same time, without especially disabling the code that sets that.

5/10/2018 9:13:09 PM | SETI@home | [http] [ID#10] Info: Found bundle for host setiboincdata.ssl.berkeley.edu: 0x376f0b0 [can pipeline]

That's strange, and I don't know what it means - I'll keep thinking about it.
It means that the server can do pipelining and isn't blacklisted. Pipelining is another word for keeping the connection alive/using the same connection as before. It's a Curl message.

Not sure if you made a post and it got hidden or anything else, but do know that you're posting with an account that has computers associated with it, so in that case you can go to your account (click your name, top right) and change your password, for instance.

You'll just have to wait until it either is returned correctly and validated, or until it reached enough errors by everyone else. Only then will it be deleted from all host IDs. By the way, it isn't physically still on your computer, it just shows in the host ID on the web site. The wait can be quite long, for me the last time around it was over three months.
26) Message boards : Number crunching : Windows 10 - Yea or Nay? (Message 1958347)

Post:
Probably because you no longer have OpenCL drivers installed. So yes, working nominally because it isn't crunching. Certainly not anymore here at Seti. The task you run at GPUGrid is CUDA.

Post:
Had you just opened the case already and taken out the power cables to the extra cards, then tried to boot up, you would've had a whole wealth of information more than you have now. I'm sorry, but why ask for help when once given you just turn it down flat-handed anyway?
Good luck finding the problem.

If you suspect one of the other GPUs, why not remove the extra ones, see if Windows boots, and add them one by one until it doesn't? Then you have your culprit.
29) Questions and Answers : Windows : Windows locks when BOINC screensaver invoked, requires ctrl-alt-del to unlock (Message 1957635)
Posted 22 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
I have the same thing with Windows, where when my system goes idle and monitors to sleep, after 10 minutes or more I have to use CTRL+ALT+DEL to wake the system back up. This isn't a BOINC problem (I don't run BOINC on my desktop anymore). The nearest I find is that it's something to do with my mouse drivers software (Logitech, using SetPoint), because when I uninstall that, I don't have this problem anymore (but then a lot less functionality of my mouse as well).
30) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : No graphics on Mac 8.04 version (Message 1956673)
Posted 28 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
For the people who don't want to go the sudo chmod route, a fix is underway. The problem with BOINC is, that once the project released a new app, that they cannot release an updated version of that same app with the same version number. Then your BOINC won't download the newer version of those apps. So the solution here is to re-release the new apps with a newer version number, which is in the books and happening soon.

It's not the BOINC version that broke it, it's the new Seti application that did. As https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/apps.php shows, v8.04 was just released on the 29th of August. Any work you had before with older applications would still have had the graphics/screen saver. Any newer will not.

But that's always been the problem here at Seti, since they gave the community the chance to build the science applications. There's just one volunteer developer who decides for all that the graphics are no longer needed, and thus they're removed. Same thing happened with the Windows (GPU) apps. You apparently have no say in this, another user decides for you.

I don't agree with that and have written a complaint about it to the admin of this project.

Your account->Preferences for this project: SETI@home preferences, edit, uncheck Use Intel GPU, Update preferences. The next time your BOINC contacts the server, it will immediately get the new preferences.
34) Message boards : Number crunching : NVIDIA Driver 388.13 Crashing/Recovering... (Message 1955058)
Posted 12 Sep 2018 by Profile Ageless
Post:
I think it's an Nvidia thing. My TV server ran for years with an AMD HD7870 until it blew itself up. But all those years not a single problem with the drivers. I could reboot, hibernate or leave the system on for hours. After the AMD we put in an Nvidia GTX 1050 and since that time, about every time the computer comes out of hibernation or has had a reboot, the driver crashes. Guess you just shrug about it. We do.

(Before the DDU advice comes, prior to installing the Nvidia drivers, I ran the AMD driver uninstall program, I ran DDU, I ran one other program just to be sure. There are no remnants of AMD drivers on that system, afaik.)

Post:
Is it difficult to do what Richard asked? Try the internet connection from the computer with the problem? Because although your network may be connected to the same modem/router, they're not all connected via the same Ethernet cable, via the same Network Interface Card. You're asking for help, but once given just wave it aside as if that can't be it. Help will dry up quite quickly if you continue to react this way.
36) Questions and Answers : Getting started : How do i get credit? (Message 1954266)
Posted 7 Sep 2018 by Profile Ageless
Post:
You'll need to allow BOINC to add your computer and run work on that, return it on time and wait for it to be validated (checked against other computers outcomes). Then you'll get credit. If you didn't get BOINC when you registered here, download it now. When installed it'll ask you to add a project, for that select Seti@Home from the drop down menu, Next, choose "Yes, returning user", fill in the email address and password you used to register your account, and continue with the installation. Then it'll do things by itself from there on in.
37) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : How to use multiple GPU's (Message 1953828)

Post:
...you would have to see if you could figure out a way to give each card a different "app_config.xml" parameter. Which is something else I don't know how to do.
Run multiple clients. But that's Astrophysics level BOINC.

For those of you wondering where the BOINC forums went, they're now on https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_index.php
I was notified that it's about to be moved to https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_index.php (not there yet) to coincide with where the forums are on most all BOINC projects.

For those of you wondering where the BOINC forums went, they're now on https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_index.php, while a lot of other links from the BOINC main page are broken. Someone is moving things around and hoping no one notices.
40) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Screensaver/Graphics stopped working (Message 1953452)

Post:
According to some of the other projects you run, you have an Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 GPU which, when you run work on that, doesn't have graphics. Only tasks run on the CPU have graphics, and then only when they're Multibeam v8.
