Well, other computer and

Well, other computer and other card and it does not work.
Intel Core i7, GeForce GTX 260, driver 185.18.36.

It is only noted a CPU time of 1 or 2 seconds, a progress of 100%
and that this is running with 1 CPU and 1 CUDA. This remains for several
hours, currently about 15.
The other 7 CPUs work until the current tasks are finished, but no new
tasks are started.

Looks like the same or similar problem as SciTechGrid reported with a
corresponding stderrout.txt.

RE: The message about file

Message 94515 in response to message 94506

Quote:

The message about file format not recognized is only after the real problem:

[14:53:37][5101][ERROR] Application caught signal 11.

So application crashes and the message appears when outputting stack backtrace. For comparisson: do You have 32 or 64 bit Linux? I have 64-bit and I'm getting similar crashes as seen in earlier message in this thread.

Andris

Same here (SUSE 11.1 64Bit, NVIDIA 190.* beta (sorry, did not get hold of 181.20 as suggested by Bernd), 9800GT Green).

It may be that I made a mistake... I'll try again when these workunits are finished, and report if something goes wrong.
Sorry.

I have not tested that with

I have not tested that with Einstein@HOME CUDA, but only Seti@HOME beta test binary for Linux. It behaves almost similarly (crashes and terminates, but does not stay hanging) when started from BOINC. When started in standalone mode directly it completes and the results were near, but not exactly as test results.
Perhaps the reason could be that 9800GX have only 32-bit floating point arithmetic AFAIK.

What is similar is that it also crashes when started from BOINC.

From other point of view GPU GRID does not crash in a similar way.

It must be related to the combination of driver and BOINC version: I'm running this app with driver version 180.44 under Suse Linux 64 bit and BOINC version 6.4.5 on a 9800 GT eco card. No problem at all:

I have Ubuntu 9.04 x64 and

I have Ubuntu 9.04 x64 and Gforce 9800GTX+, 180.44drivers version, 6.45 BOINC version (I have tried with the newest version of boinc the same thing happens). I get the errors:
http://einsteinathome.org/task/139636948
http://einsteinathome.org/task/139617514

Also when I was running gpugrid my graphic card got much hotter while running einstein@home it's like it's doing nothing. Everything in BOINC settings seems to work fine, it can see my graphics processor, but something must be wrong.

Thanks for the report, this error seems to be an "interesting" one, I forwarded it to the devs. I don't think it's related to driver or libs, it coul dbe something "deeper" in the implementation.

I've finished few more units, the same thing happens.
I'll try to upgrade drivers to version 185.18.36. And than see what will happen.

Tried with new drivers and now I have a different problem. Unit came to 100% in 2 seconds but status stayed "Running (1.00 CPUs, 1 CUDA) and indeed one processor was not available for usage although it was idle.
These are really strange problems, I don't know if I can give you any data about this one.

I now got one of these "error code 3" errors myself :

http://einsteinathome.org/task/139848057

with a similar driver and BOINC configuration. The developers are looking into this. For my host most of the results work just fine, tho.
