Waited too long, unable to edit

This was fixed by running the revo uninstaller and removing all traces of the driver and then reinstalling. Back to two GPUs

Never seen this before. I have a pair of RX 570 and after upgrading to adrenalin 18.12.2-dec12 an extra pair of GPUs appeared. I don't want this as completion times are longer with the "extra" pair. Googling I cant find and reports of this. I got to poking around using Radeon settings and was lucky to get system restored to where it was usable.

Pictures below show 4 GPUs recognized. There are only 2 and they are not in crossfire mode. Before I upgraded only the 2 gpu were found. The last pic is from boing manager instead of BoincTasks as it shows slightly different (???) parameters

I posted this on the BOINC forum also.

Don't think my parents are up for visiting the summit of Mauna Kea, even by tour bus. .

This is what can go wrong on the road up Haleakaia when a tour bus takes a wrong turn. The shadows on the ground are our bicycles. The bus was still there when finally took the ride down and was still there as shown on the local news that night.

4) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Somehow "lost" opencl and almost 300 collatz tasks errored (Message 409)

One of my linux systems rebooted, not sure what caused it, but opencl no longer existed after the reboot.

I tried reinstalling cuda (or whatever I had there) and it failed to install, clearly some new kernel had been installed that was incompatible with the old driver for the GTX 1050ti.

I downloaded and install 390.59, got all kinds of errors, but managed to google though and get it workiing

Not sure how it happened but I read where I can stop auto updates. I assume this will stop future problems on my other systems?

Changed APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "1" on two ubuntu into
APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "0";

One of my systems has "14" where the "1' was. Not sure the difference but I set it to "0"

Is there anything else I should do?

Thanks for looking!
