The latest update on the GPU app

Edit (24.11): There is still a small holdup with the client. We hope to get it out tomorrow.

Hope it isn't for Linux only..... I have yet to get BOINC to work under Linux with the 6990...

Have no idea why either, and forums no help...

I just popped into my Ubuntu OS here and uninstalled the old amd drivers and then grabbed Catalyst 11.11 from the amd website, installed it followed by installing the latest BOINC for Linux and it seems to detect my HD5770

 

Command line output is below

I'm quite a noob at linux, so I'm not sure how to link the BOINC manager to the BOINC client :/

What do you mean exactly?

The BOINC client starts at the boot and will remain active (crunching) even when I've closed the manager (the GUI).
Bad thing is, it usually loads before the LAN driver (resulting in 'no internet connection) and video driver (resulting in 'no GPU's found').
This thread might help others who are struggling with boinc in ubuntu: BOINC forum
post #15 of 396
A simple delay in the init.d/boinc-client script fixes the timing problem loading the drivers in Linux. However, my first tries at getting Ubuntu 64b to run with the 6990 failed. Also, Ubuntu has a several year old Realtek 8111e LAN driver problem that I got around by using a WiFi dongle.

Hmm, maybe later today I will try those new AMD drivers again, but it's a pain since I literally slapped the system together just to test and it has one tiny SSD doing everything...

And yes, Linux is a different animal and runs BOINC as a service from the start... that's just the way it is, always running. But, for me that's good because that is the sole reason I run Linux (BOINC CRUNCHING).

Good info though! Thanks!

I know, we are late - really late. The good news is: the client works now with both cards. The bad news is: There is no general OpenCL scheduler class for both AMD and nvidia. Hence I will write that now.

All things BOINC, especially on project development is slow. You may not know, but many sites are run by volunteers and students that really don't know much about what they are doing...

I know what you mean. I took a look at Open CL and Cuda just to see how complex the programming is. Needless to say, it seems really hard biggrin.gif

Its like trying to solve a really complex math equation while writing code. I admire that developers who put in the time and effort to code apps for these projects. Does anyone personally know any of the development staff on any project? I would be curious to see what jobs these programmers due outside of Boinc

I don't mind the wait. It seems like the devs really care about creating a solid GPU app for this project.
