Topic 210625

Hi,

where can I get the up-to-date source for the einstein@home apps? I'm specifically looking for the source code for FGRPB1G. Maybe I'm just blind but I can't find it using the links provided at https://einsteinathome.org/application-source-code-and-license

Thanks
Paulie

Sorry, the source code of the

Sorry, the source code of the Gamma-Ray Pulsar search is not public (yet). Discussion with the authors is ongoing.

Thanks for the info. In that

Thanks for the info. In that case it would be nice to update the "Application Source Code and License" page, since the sentence "The Einstein@Home source code is released under the GNU General Public License, version 2. " somewhat implied to me that this is the case for every Einstein@Home application including the Gamma-Ray Pulsar search...

If you asked because of a

If you asked because of a particular astronomic motivation then this reply of mine does not help you. For technical bits (like porting to other platforms) some social engineering (see which communities we can reach) we (some volunteering enthusiasts) have prepared https://github.com/VolunteerComputingHelp/boinc-app-eah-brp. This provides packages for the Binary Radio Pulsar search for Debian. And we would certainly also like to see the same for other Linux distributions.

Locally we also have packages of the LALsuite but want to postpone that until we have learned from the BRP about how much effort and how rewarding that is for everyone. To the degree this effort of ours (or others) yield more contributors, code improvement or some nice surprise, this may  help to persuade the E@H developers to invest more into the developers in their community.

Our immediate focus is on helping the ARM platform and fostering the use of custom wisdom files for the FFTW library. So, feel free to browse the source tree, and if an idea of a patch arises - you may decide to prepare an issue or a pull request.

Well, actually the motivation

Well, actually the motivation was to debug some memory corruption crashes I have with the open source OpenCL drivers (specifically the mesa clover on some older AMD cards).

Thanks for the link anyway, however as far as I know the Binary Radio Pulsar search already works with mesa. I did not get any GPU tasks for Binary Radio Pulsar search in a long time though, just the Gamma-Ray Pulsar search which crashes immediately.
