Pete, if they are nVidea they are easy to get to work with Linux, If they are AMD then I wash my hands ..... total nightmare.
It is not a total nightmare, it needs some serious planning:
  • How old are your GPUs
  • Which version of Linux are you planning to use
  • Do you plan to use a APU/GPU combo
I have a Linux Mint 17.3 system with two HD 6670s and a A8-3870K, running three Seti@Home GPU-WUs simultaneously.
I have a Ubuntu 16.04 system running Xansons for Cod on the internal R3 of an Athlon 5350 AM1 APU, on the Open Source driver(!)
I have a Lubuntu 16.04 system running Seti@Home Beta on the internal Radeon HD 7660D of an A10-5700 FM2 APU, also on the Open Source driver(!)
The latter is actually a bit of a bummer, because till shortly -in it's A6-3500 FM1 incarnation- it ran far more projects (CAL++/Brook was still enabled). No longer so after the upgrade.

Simply said:
  • You can't use Ati/AMD GPUs older than the HD 5000 series (or you must be prepared to run a stone-age kernel)
  • With older cards (pre 'R' series) stick to Ubuntu versions below 16.04 or you can't crunch due to bad OpenCL support -and CAL++ support is gone. And do not forget to restart the boinc client in order to be able to use the GPU!
  • When using Linux, only use GPUs from one vendor (Ati/AMD, Intel or nVidia) as installing a second driver will basically delete the first, unless you're prepared to do some real tinkering. They need to be of roughly the same capability and have to use the same driver too, as the applications only see more instances of the same card and -check your computers on any given BOINC project.

Thanks Dirk. I'll use your info the next time I have the urge to try Linux once more. I am not in a hurry although I noted that some apps pay better on linux.

You made me look. It is confusing. 100,000,000 supposed to be Diamond. I see nothing in my pic that looks like a Diamond it is more like a silver background. However. the No1 guy who has more than 200M has the same badge. It seems that the black dots or circles tells the story. 1M = 3 dots, 10M = 4 dots and 100M = 5 dots. Em tassol, news belong you me. :-)

Make that just 'dots'. One (white) dot is 10k, two dots is 100k (and I should know....)

This IS preparation H. I presently ONLY crunch WCG MIP and WCG HST, WCG-wise. For some reason the latter doesn't hand out work at all...
So MIP will continue to look sickly, until I have it at silver.

You did that just to aggravate me :naughty:

Well done though :clap:

1. Go to your WCG My Contribution page....https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms/v ... berPage.do
2. Right click on the badge image and copy the image URL or open the image in a new tab and copy the image URL
3. In TSBT post, use that URL for the Image tag

Easy peasy...Image

Well I could say that since that one is a biggie I wanted to show it off ... but I wouldn't want to rub it in.

The reality is I tried uploading it from my PC and even with resizing it didn't get any smaller.

Yeah, the project is showing me with a BOAR (appropriate) which is 3M credits. I only have 1M. The 1M badge is a badger but my signature is showing a Wolf and that doesn't show on the my project page :roll: Things are a bit screwed up!

EDIT: the Wolf showing in my signature is a 15M badge ... I wish I had that many!
