Just topped off today... Down again!!! $3.47/Gal for Reg.

Gas in SF is MORE expensive than Danville/San Ramon!!! :-O I'm doing quite nicely in comparison. :-)

Thanks to Carlos, I now have a Monitor I can leave on, (with Apple Screen Saver of course), and NO LONGER encounter the CUDA90 App Bug. :-)

The Computer is now on a Viewsonic VX2250, 21.5" LED/LCD Monitor. Supports 1920 x 1080. It's been on ALL day today, (12-18-2018), and DOES NOT get hot like the 23" Apple Cinema Display. :-)

Monitor, (again), connected to the ATI HD-5770 GPU. The ATI Card DOES NOT Crunch. ONLY the GTX-1050 Crunches.

Let's see if I can get my RAC back up above 13.5K. :-)

FINALLY getting work!!! :-) :-D

OH, and Carlos, "About this Mac ---> Graphics and Displays" states the ViewSonic is 21.5"... It Displays 1920 x 1080. :-) It's working quite nicely. :-)

Thanks, again, Carlos. Now I can leave this one on, and NO LONGER get the CUDA90 App Bug! :-)

Due to the change to "Winter Blend" in California, Gas Prices have dropped to $3.59/Gal for Regular at the Exxon in San Ramon. Everyone else is $3.79/Gal.

@Carlos,

FOUND a DVI Cable for the ViewSonic!!!!! :-)

Just resumed Crunching, BUT, due to the Outrage today - I'm getting "No Tasks Available..." I hope the Servers start sending out Tasks soon.

Posted 2 days ago by Profile TimeLord04
Post:
<avg_ncpus>1.0</avg_ncpus>
<ngpus>1.0</ngpus>

Is the right syntax


Change the 1.0 in the ngpus line for whatever you try to run. 0.5 for 2 instances, 0.33 for 3, etc.

But be aware:

In windows few GPU's runs faster with more than 2 WU at a time.

With Linux special sauce builds run only 1 WU at a time.

Thanks MUCH, Juan!!! :-)

I made some headway. By putting a <plan_class> in the opencl app section it suddenly started running both apps. However now it only runs one opencl app and not two as specified by

<app_config>
<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_v8</app_name>
<ngpus>0.5</ngpus>
<ncpus>0.5</ncpus> <<----- (Check Syntax... I'm NOT 100% sure of "ncpus" as I've written it. BUT, you MUST have this Line in there to allow One Full Thread,(0.5 + 0.5), to feed the GPU 2 Units at a time.)
</app_version>
</app_config>

That part was working correctly before. I picked a plan_class based on guesswork, what plan_class should I use for opencl compiled for Radeon ROCm? This is my current app_info:

<app_info>
<app>
<name>setiathome_v8</name>
</app>

<file_info>
<name>setiathome_8.18_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>

<file_info>
<name>setiathome_8.00_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>

<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_v8</app_name>
<platform>x86_64-pc-linux-gnu</platform>
<version_num>800</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>setiathome_8.00_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

<app_version>
<app_name>setiathome_v8</app_name>
<version_num>818</version_num>
<cmdline></cmdline>
<coproc>
<type>ATI</type>
<count>1</count>
</coproc>
<plan_class>opencl_ati_linux_cat132</plan_class>
<flops>8.6e12</flops>
<avg_ncpus>0.2</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>0.5</max_ncpus>
<file_ref>
<file_name>setiathome_8.18_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
</app_info>


[EDIT:]

See my Edit in your app_config coding. Someone with more knowledge than I can make applicable corrections.

1809 just TRIED to Update to my Dad's Desktop, (Farragut - i7 7700, Gigabyte GA-H270-HD3 MOBO, 16GB Corsair Vengeance CL14 DDR4 RAM, Integrated Intel HD630 GPU), System. I fought with Win Update Settings and FORCED this to "Pause" 'til January 19, 2019 <<-- Corrected 12-15-2018 - TL!!! :-)

Hopefully, by then, they'll have 1809 ironed out. (MAYBE...???...)

Hi TL,

2009? Shouldn't that be 2019? The temporal Prime Directive is in full force here. lol ;)

Have a great day! :)

Thought I typed 2019... FFS... ;-)

Post:
Make sure that "Show Hidden Files/Folders" is Enabled, AND "Show Extensions..."

If this was NOT done previously, then, (as Juan suggests), your "cc_config.xml" File is REALLY "cc_config.xml.txt"

Once the above changes are made, and from within Notepad, when you Save - ALWAYS choose "Save As". THEN for File Type make sure that ALL or *.* is showing, and then save the File as "cc_config.xml" <<--- (NO .txt at the end...)

With Lunatics 0.45 Beta 6 on my dad's Win 10 Pro System, (i7 7700, 16GB DDR4 CL14 Corsair Vengeance RAM, using the Integrated HD-630 GPU), with SOG - Crunching Times ARE DOWN to 37 Min or LESS... DOWN from something around 2 Hours a Unit on Lunatics 44.

ymmv

As the others stated, SELECT SoG from the Lunatics Installer. ;-)


TL

[EDIT:]

AND, on a Discrete GPU 0.45 Beta 6 on SoG does MUCH better than my dad's Integrated HD-630 GPU. :-)

Dear Juan
Received the VGA adapter so I can use my monitor.
Loaded the Lunatics v0.44 app but first the TU won't connect to BOINC? not connected to client?
BUT I then remembered to reboot and things seem OK now.
Thanks for your help and let's see what happens to crunch times

The Latest Lunatics' App is Ver: 0.45 Beta 6

Ver 44 is MUCH older... I recommend obtaining 0.45 Beta 6 from Mike's World here: Mike's World, Downloads: Lunatics 0,45 B6

There's a 32 Bit Ver for Windows, and a 64 Bit Ver for Windows, make sure to grab the right one. :-)
