COBOL and punch cards. lol

Is there an app for that? That would be awesome.

It might have been, but have no way to prove it as I don't have a Linux box with a CUDA GPU. I made some changes to the app and redeployed it as v4.04. I'd appreciate it if someone could give it a try and let me know whether it is working now or not.


Just tried it. Nothing but compute errors.

Kind of surprised this isn't a static app. Here's what my Gentoo box is linking to.
ldd mini_collatz_4.04_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__cuda50
linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007fff806e6000)

EDIT: Another thing I notice and not sure if it matters, but if the app is looking for "libcudart.so.5.0", shouldn't it ship with the app? What ships is libcudart.so.5.0.35_x86_64.


It should look different if you do the ldd from the slot folder. Or is that where it was done from?


It errors out too fast to try. Maybe I could copy it to a faux slot folder before it dies and try it from there.

I realize libcudart.so.5.0 is a symbolic link. That's why I was confused that the app was looking for a symbolic link that didn't dome with it. I was able to copy a slot folder over before the task died and here are the files that got copied over.

boinc_lockfile
boinc_mmap_file
collatz.config
in.txt
init_data.xml
libcudart.so.5.0
mini_collatz_4.04_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__cuda50
out.txt
stderr.txt


I did notice that the libcudart file was the right name and the same size as libcudart.so.5.0.35_x86_64. The one on my system has a different size.

I tried to run the app local, not knowing if there was some commandline or not for starting it. I copied the task to in.txt and created an empty out.txt. I also copied over the collatz.config file. Running the app without any inputs gave me this.

./mini_collatz_4.04_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__cuda50
Floating point exception


...and the contents of the stderr.txt file.

Don't know if that helps at all.

Installed cuda-toolkit-5, no change. Still takes 6 times as long and I doubt it even uses the GPU. (no proof on that statement)

Something isn't quite right. Tasks are taking 7 times longer and apparently using a full core. Odd since I have CPU deselected. So far I've completed 3, but no wingman joy, yet.

EDIT: Gentoo stable is at Cuda 4, but I'm currently installing Cuda 5 to see if it helps. It's taking all day to download, though.

Is this the same app shipped with the app_info version or a new one that is possibly faster?

I finished my last Collatz units this morning and my 4830 went back to crunching MW.

The 4650 continues on here though.


And then I go and fry the motherboard on my Dell 530S. It is going to be down for a bit until I can get a new board.

Is that an Inspiron 530? If so, how did you manage to fry it? Just wanting to make sure I don't fry my own.

The project won't send my Linux PIII any work, so I guess we'll never know. Maybe I could boot into Windows to test it that way, but I really hate doing that and I'd have to hook a monitor back up to it.

I have a PIII 1GHz. I'm going to have to see if I can run a work unit on it and see what the credit per day is. :-P


It will download the SSE app by default. You'd have to install the non-SSE app manually and use an app_info.xml file. When I get in to work tomorrow, I may see if I can find a place to plug in an old PII 400Mhz box we have lying around and see what it does. It should also get almost exactly what it claims as it can't use the SSE app.


My /proc/cpuinfo claims that it can support sse. It's not downloading any work, though, so perhaps I should try the non-SSE anyways.

I can't find a non-SSE app to download to install manually. Perhaps there's not one for Linux?

So what Mobo do you have, amount of memory & speed, OS, hard drive capacity? I'm also curious.


It's an ASUS P3C-E that I have an adapter in to accept the "faster" processor. It takes Rambus, which had I known more about computers at the time, I wouldn't have bought. Due to the expensive nature of Rambus, I only have 312 MB of Ram. Yes, on a PIII you are able to have mismatched memory cards. It only has half the serial lines of a P4. It's a good board for overclocking, but I'm not currently doing it.

Linux is the OS. I don't do Windows. Hard drive capacity? Enough.

On the credit awarding methods, my view is that a pie is worth the same regardless how long it was in the oven. Apple pie anyone?
