Topic 203654

Setup:

  • OS - Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit
  • Kernel - 3.13.0-37-generic
  • CPU - INgel Core i3-3220T CPU @ 2.80GHz x 2
  • GPU - NVIDIA Corporation GK107 [GeForce GT 640]

Issue:

It took NVIDIA 13 months to provide a driver update to let me crunch again with my GPU. A long abstinence. Finally 5 weeks ago I regained this functionality and *bang* now I get this:

  • Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) is not available for your type of computer.

Is this a temporary issue or should I just stick it trying to use my GPU which in fact means that I have to leave this project since I only do GPU for einstein@home? Will be sad, I think.

You only have one Linux

You only have one Linux computer attached and this one already got BRP4G tasks. As far as I can see you are successfully crunching since Dec 2nd. In the latest contact with the project (2016-12-12 15:51:21) your computer got 11 BRP4G tasks.

Well I must have gotten all

Well I must have gotten all these new tasks just 20 minutes before I posted. An hour earlier the queue was cleared by completing the last task.

This however answers the question. It was just a temporary issue. Now I am fluffy again.

Thanks a lot Christian and happy crunching!

The tasks I got on Monday

The tasks I got on Monday were the last ones I received so my queue dried out the day after on Tuesday. Thus I am no longer working on tasks since.

If someone around here has contact to the people generating tasks it will be awesome to ask them to generate them for my computer environment, too. Thanks and cheers.

Thanks for the info Richie!

Thanks for the info Richie! Keeping fingers crossed for beams from another source. :)

Your computers are hidden so we can't check to see if you are getting any GPU tasks.  If not, you should check your project preferences to make sure the "Gamma-ray pulsar binary search #1 (GPU)" science run is ticked.  That should be a reliable source of GPU tasks to crunch.  A possible problem is the amount of GPU memory you have.  These tasks seem to require more than the BRP4G tasks did.

 

Cheers,
Gary.

If you don't have the very latest driver, you might consider an update.  One of my four machines with a slightly older (not old at all--it runs a GTX 1060) driver was refused 1.15 work until I rebooted after a driver update.  I'm not sure that was cause and effect, but it is a possibility for you to consider.

Are the 4 GPUs that BOINC detects all 1050Tis?

The above snip implies that the problem is that BOINC can't detect the OpenCL capability of your devices.  That could mean different devices with different capabilities or (more likely I would think) the OS install on this particular host is missing a package that provides the OpenCL libs.  How confident are you that OpenCL is properly installed on this machine?

Cheers,
Gary.
