hello, thx for reply. i

hello, thx for reply.

i download einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.10_i686-apple-darwin__NVOpenCL from:
http://albert.phys.uwm.edu/EinsteinAtHome/download/
as you could download all other files.

einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.01_i686-apple-darwin__BRP3cuda32OSX was downloaded via the boinc client and works out of the box with my NVIDIA GTS450, OS X10.6.8 / 10.7 and latest Nvidia CUDA Driver and toolkit.

so it have to with an app_info.xml too!

behind i want to try the OpenCL file.

in my app_info.xml i fixed the line graphics_app , delete the collatz comantline and checked 1024 mb vram as 1073741824.00 from client_state.xml

do i have to bind any other files like stochastic_full.bank or the slideshowfiles?

here is my message output for BRP4 CUDA:

could i use einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.01_i686-apple-darwin__BRP3cuda32OSX5 too ?
what i have to change if i want two WU´s for one GPU?
would be great if you could give me some more help

thx in advance

Do you really think it's a good idea to take test versions of apps from the test project site and transport them across to the main site and try to force them to run under AP? Will you take responsibility for any damage you cause to results stored in the main project database through this very ill-advised action? You should only run the official apps as would be supplied automatically to your client when it contacts the server. If you want to run these apps under AP, it is your responsibility to set up the appropriate app_info.xml file. Running under AP is not encouraged by the project Admins and if you choose to go down this path, you need to make sure you know what you are doing. There is no 'one size fits all' version of app_info.xml. It needs to be customised for your particular requirements. It's easy to trash lots of work and to waste more resources than you are likely to save just to get things running in the first place. You need to pay close attention in case the app version is changed by the project and you need a proper plan for how to back out of AP when circumstances change. It's easy to waste resources at both these points.

If you want to run any app other than an official one, it would be common courtesy to contact one of the project Admins (eg Bernd) and let him know what you propose to do and why you think you should be allowed to do it. I would think it's extremely unlikely that you would be granted permission, simply because of the risk it would pose to the integrity of the project's results.

The OpenCL app is still under test at the Albert@Home site and should only be run there at present. There is certain to be a full announcement when it is ready for release here. Until that time you should wait patiently like everybody else.

Cheers,
Gary.

hello, thx for reply. first,

hello, thx for reply.
first, i want to create an app_info.xml for the official projekt to edit the cmdline to get more GPU load. (right now only 80 %)
i did the same with the collatz opencl app and it is now 2,5 times faster
behind as i wrote before i would like to test the opencl version!

bernd ist talking here about BRP4_1.07 (July 2011) and this is not official too!

so what do you think as newbie when you could download these files?
why could anybody download these files and could damage the project?
i don´t think that everybody takes time to write here in and ask for help to support the project.

but still, you are right :)

nevermind, here is my working app_info.xml for the offical einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.01_i686-apple-darwin__BRP3cuda32OSX

would be great if you could tell me the cmdline for more GPU load

before i spent more time, do you need testers for the new einsteinbinary_BRP4_1.22_i686-apple-darwin__BRP3cuda32OSX or OpenCL files?

I may be missing the point or

I may be missing the point or something,
And i do not know if this will work here at Einstein,
But if all you want is more GPU load why not run two tasks at the same time using the standard application by changing the value.

CUDA
1.000000

To . . .

CUDA
0.500

I dont remember exactly how it is set out,
It is done that way over on SETI for running two, three, fore or more work units at the same time, if your GPU has the ram needed to cope with the load.

And SETI is `down for maintenance` at the moment so i am unable to link to the thread that spell`s out the way to do it.
