RE: All we can say for

Quote:
All we can say for certain is that there was a change in behaviour after the 10.18.10.3621 driver, which produces a high validation rate. Quite what goes wrong - what changes in the result file - I'm afraid I can't say: that might be easier for you or Bikeman to extract from the returned results.


For anyone needing the last driver that works, I've looked through my downloads (I checked the readme), and my download history (I use Getright),
the original (direct) download url for the 10.18.10.3621 driver for 64bit Windows is:

RE: My fleet of Android and

Quote:
My fleet of Android and Linux Arm hosts have five invalid tasks, and a number of inconclusives between them where they have been matched with a pair of intel_gpu hosts:

Thanks, Claggy. I've checked your invalids and 3 out of 4 (which are still there) showed 2 Haswell hosts validating each other against your system. That's a strong hint that whatever the new Intel drivers are doing is not happening under Linux / Android.

The 4th WU is a validation nightmare, but at least contains an example of a Haswell validating against the NEON app. That Haswell might simply use the older driver, though.

Actually, it uses an even older driver:

That one should be good, judging by Bikeman's remarks about the problems we had at the other end of the driver range when the application was first launched.

There is a way of finding out (the present driver version), while you can't see it by looking at the host details page, you can by looking at the last contact as long as they ask for work:

Ouch. That one's newer than the downloads I found on Monday, and I can't find it on Intel's site - and it still doesn't seem to be working. I hope it's not an OEM special.

The last host isn't

The last host isn't completing any intel_gpu Wu's, some end in maximum time exceeded, maybe some a more allowance is needed, But it's a huge difference between the valid result of 904.63secs (on the other host), and the 27,726.57secs some of its results take,
looking at the stderr.txt shows no checkpointing recorded in any of those long running Wu's, some throw an Access Violation error:

All tasks for computer 7536812


While it hasn't asked for work here, it is attached to other projects, a stderr.txt from a Seti v7 result shows:

There are discussions about

There are discussions about Intel driver version and cpu's with Intel HD graphics.
Currently i'm installing a low end system.

28.12.2014 20:05:14 | | OpenCL: Intel GPU 0: Intel(R) HD Graphics (driver version 10.18.10.3408, device version OpenCL 1.2, 1496MB, 1496MB available, 6 GFLOPS peak)
28.12.2014 20:05:14 | | OpenCL CPU: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU J1900 @ 1.99GHz (OpenCL driver vendor: Intel(R) Corporation, driver version 3.0.1.10878, device version OpenCL 1.2 (Build 76413))
28.12.2014 20:05:14 | | Host name: rocky1

Driver is from the distribution disc. Have not yet checked for updates.

When installation is finished and all updates done i will download some intel wu's so that everyone who is interested can check performance and reliability.

First wu's are finished. They

First wu's are finished. They validate against neon wu's.
One wu was distributed to a third pc. The wu cruched by an i5 HD4600 was marked invalid then.
The user has a lot of invalids (345) and some hundred in the queue.
