Topic 218829

I can find no reason why some of my computers get no GPU WUs. Any suggestions as to why and how I can get them DLing??? TIA

Step one to getting help from

Step one to getting help from us would be to unhide your computers.

Should you choose to do so, go to:

Select "Yes" for "Should Einstein@Home show your computers on its web site?:"

and finally click Save Changes

Had the same problem with the 430.xx driver in Mint 18.3 with latest 4.15 kernel. Reverting to 418.xx driver fixed the issue for me. YMMV

Could your post a host number for one of the problematic machines?
Or at least the startup messages from Boinc and a work request from Einstein@home?

Would this happen if Both GPU

Would this happen if Both GPU are working together as in crossfire ? my 560 & 280X do not crossfire sadly !

Have to figure out that 2nd request.

Edit: Host are now visible, checking things out to see if I can spot something. BRB.

As your hosts are still hidden no one but you can see them.
A host number is something like this 11468519 (my primary host) and is presented in your list of hosts/computers here on the website as the "Computer ID". (To see what others can see with your hosts unhidden just click my name and then "Show computers" on the top right)

The log messages can be obtained by opening Boinc Manager and in the advanced view click the "Tools" menu and then select "Event log". You can select as many rows as you like but please don't post too much. Just restart Boinc on one of the problematic machines then on the Project tab select Einstein and click "Update". After that copy all lines in the Event log and post them here.

The "Last contact log" (the server logs that can be found by going to your list of computers and clicking on the last contact date and time) shows what the server decided to do in response to your contact. For an explanation of how to read this log check Gary's guide in the "Getting Started" section.

From the last contact log of one of your machines (host #12651282) this can be found:

2019-05-09 19:50:01.5008 [version] NVidia device (or driver) doesn't support OpenCL

That computer is reported as running Linux, check and make sure OpenCL is installed and working.
As a windows only user I'm afraid I can't help you on how to do that but I'm sure someone else will come along and help out if you need it.

I see the same message reported for your other Linux machines.

Have to figure out that 2nd request.

On some of them your Nvidia driver is too new, go back to the 398.11 version with OpenCL: 1.2 in it.

Einstein doesn't always accept the latest and greatest drivers here, they hard code the software here to take the best at the time but over time new ones get released and the software doesn't get updated because it works. Also make sure your settings are to receive all kinds of gpu wu's not just one kind or the other. As you get tasks and get them working you can then decided which kind you want to run, the shorter Ligo wu's or the longer Gamma-ray pulsar binary search wu's. You can also decide whether to run just 1 or more wu's at a time depending on the gpu in each machine, in your case you will only have 4 choices as they only have 4 venues here.

Also cross fire does NOT help with crunching in Boinc, the server side software is not coded to take advantage of multiple gpu's that way. So unless you game with the machines you can take those little wires off.

The standard problem of the

The standard problem of the OpenCL component of the Nvidia drivers not getting installed is usually fixed with:

sudo apt-get install ocl-icd-libopencl1

But with Mint, sometimes this does not work and the alternative is needed:

sudo apt-get install Nvidia-libopencl1-304
