Topic 197738

Please could a suitable person upgrade 1.39 (BRP4G-cuda32-OSX) to a 64-bit version. Short of going back to an earlier version of OSX, I don't see any way of running my GPUs.

Best wishes,

R

Mac OSX 64-bit CUDA GPU application

Thanks for the note. I hope I'll find time to look into this next week.

Any progress or plans to report? I would like to move to Yosemite and bring einstein@home with me!

Under Win you could simply

Under Win you could simply run the 32 Bit executable in a 64 Bit OS. I don't know Macs.. is this not possible under OS X?

With Cuda 6.5, Nvidia is deprecating Support for 32bit Cuda on 64bit OS's, as well as Support for sm_10, sm_11, sm_12, and sm_13 Architectures,
along with many other changes:

CUDA 6.5 MAC OSX

CUDA Toolkit v6.5 Unsupported Features

So expect a lot more 64bit Cuda apps soon.

I managed to build a BRP5

I managed to build a BRP5 64Bit OSX (>= 10.7) App with CUDA 5.5 manually. As (manual) deployment of CUDA apps is pretty clumsy, I'll probably don't have time for it today. ETA early next week.

The App version has been

The App version has been deployed (version 1.40, BRP5-cuda55-Beta, min. requiring OSX 10.7 and CUDA 5.5) and is currently running a task on our build machine, so it seems it at least doesn't crash immediately.

As the plan class indicates, this app version is currently in "Beta" status, so you'll need to have "Run beta/test application versions?" set to "yes" in your Einstein@Home preferences to get it.

Possible oversight in server config? this test makes sense for the cuda32 apps.

Tasks coming through now, thanks. Will keep an eye on stability and runtimes on a 330M and a 680MX.
