1) Message boards : News : Mini Collatz App Released (Message 11271)
Posted 2542 days ago by Sire TRM
Yes, this will increase server stress. . . And flood some people with [useless] WUs. I can also confirm that "[mini_]collatz 2.02 (cuda)" fails to run on OSX with CUDA Toolkit 3.2 (January 2011) installed. As far as I understand, the CUDA app can run with 2.n, though I'm not sure which version. The application "collatz_2.04_i686-apple-darwin__cuda31.zip (Mac OS 10.5+ running on an Intel 64-bit CPU)" does not work and appears to have instructions (in addition to some potentially insulting comments to the user) intended for use on a Linux system.

I'm going to try to disable mini_collatz, but it would be nice to have the option to disable all CUDA tasks to reduce both the project and my resource consumption where it is not necessary.

Again, same thing. The Optimized version has poor and ineffective instructions. The result of following the instructions merely results in needing a reinstall of BOINC to correct permissions and continued WU failure.

CUDA Driver Version: 3.2.17
GPU Driver Version: 1.6.26.22 (256.00.15f04)
Operating System: Mac OS 10.6.6
Hardware: Macbook Pro3,1 with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz and GeForce 8600M GT 256MB
