Re: Tasks postponed for 30 seconds

What is the Intel GPU, and what driver are you using under Linux? You might be interested in this thread at Seti@Home Beta I followed your posts to get Intel GPU drivers. Boinc was seeing GPU and I didn't have the option turn on to suspend GPU when the computer in use. And here's the log from fault...

Is that the one that was a sub project of Yoyo ? I thought that was finished.
Yes, it did. I was curious if any of you tried to run it outside of BOINC

Re: Radeon R7 250X not detected by BOINC

Something tells me you ran the ./amdgpu-pro-install not in the directory where the amdgpu-pro-install script is (/Downloads/driver/version), as it will install all the files you installed with synaptic, and more. Believe me, Dirk, I did run install command in directory containing all unpacked files...

Re: Radeon R7 250X not detected by BOINC

The -y argument sets all questions during the install to a default 'yes'. The install of OpenCL depends heavily on the --opencl=pal,legacy argument. Without it you will get the infamous 'no useable GPU detected'... ./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=pal,legacy --headless --headless will drop Accelera...

Re: Radeon R7 250X not detected by BOINC

Did you install using ./amdgpu-pro-install -y --opencl=pal,legacy ? OpenCL is an optional component of the Pro variant and is installed only if it is specifically requested.

Hello all, I tried today to utilize Radeon R7 250X 2GB but neither Collatz nor Amicable Numbers did not pick up new card. Official GPU drivers from AMD website were installed without any errors on Linux Mint 19 Tara yet BOINC still doesn't see the card :evil: Please, share your thought on how to res...

WUs with missed deadline

I need quick advice, gents.

I have some yoyo Siever WUs going to pass deadline. Should I cancel them, let them run or they will be cancelled by project?

A bad WU is not unheard of. You should add a feature to your BT tool to set a max time limit for WUs on projects and abort them if they run longer than the max.
BT tool? Please, can you elaborate?

Re: Another new Yoyo application: Siever

Sorry guys for going off topic. And thanks for sharing your thoughts.
Like Bryan said above "There just isn't a SMART answer to it" so let's close this topic and get back to crunching.

Re: Another new Yoyo application: Siever

@Hal Bregg this is an ancient topic and has been going around every since GPU crunching 1st came out. Credit Screw, which Yoyo uses, was David Anderson's approach to "socialized" crunching.

Re: Another new Yoyo application: Siever

I gave this project a shot on my Linux PC and I'm disappointed by the amount of credit awarded for successful work. For example one task took over 8 hrs to crunch, 2,044.25 points were claimed and only 599.06 were given? Why?

Re: Intel HD400 GPU optimization

Collatz does have a GPU app for the Intel onboard GPUs. You just need to get the OpenCL drivers installed. It's not nearly as powerful as the gaming cards but it is faster than CPU. Beware though. The GPU is in the CPU die correct? So you need to watch the CPU temps really close? No multi-threaded ...

Re: not going well

This is strange. I run Gerasim sucesfully on Windows 10 Home and I don't have any of those C++ packages. Are they bundled up with Windows 10? In fact I remember I removed some of them as I was running out of space on system disk.
