or go to google play store and download nativeboinc which supports BAM!
Oh and if you use enough of them it's surprising how much RAC you can generate :)

Just got back from the latest jaunt abroad and pleased to report that all my nVidia's running under ubuntu are now quite happily munching away at Collatz. Thanks Slicker for the work. Only two more boxes to optimize and it's happy days.
Cheers :)

A new Linux i686 nVidia version is now available (6.05) which was build using the nvidia-304 libraries. If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas.

What is the output of:
ls -hl /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so

Googling "libOpenCL.so.1: no version information available" shows that a lot of people have problems with that error in a lot of different non-BOINC applications. It appears it may be an issue where nVidia and AMD have different opinions of what the opencl standard is and the app is not compatible from one to another. I'll see if I can compile the nvidia app using the nvidia sdk. Maybe that will make a difference.


output

alex@Loki:~$ ls -hl /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 Feb 6 16:04 /usr/lib/libOpenCL.so -> /etc/alternatives/i386-linux-gnu_libOpenCL.so
alex@Loki:~$

have even checked the /etc/OpenCL/Vendors/nvidia.icd
have put in the full path to see if that will help. I even went as far as deliberately breaking .icd, which caused milkyway to fail immediately and no opencl gpu to be found, so I know it is definitely finding the links and libraries etc.

Exactly the same. Checked in the directory and both libOenCL.so.1 and libnvidia-opencl.so.1 are there.

Trying on another ubuntu box that previously ran collatz solo's no problem. Try and see if it's one box or all. Is anyone else having issues with linux, nvidia combo ?

I have OpenCL 1.2 drivers installed on the machine that compiled the app so I wonder whether the backard compatibility flag is working as advertised. By chance, is there a newer nVidia driver available that supports OpenCL 1.2?


As far as I am aware AMD and Intel have opencl 1.2 support, but no nVidia drivers have opencl 1.2 support. At least not that I can find.
I did try installing the intel sdk and that really broke everything.

it's this computer here http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/show_host_detail.php?hostid=139444

currently running opencl app for milkyway with no problems. Not sure what the issue is. I know it is to do with the opencl lib libOpenCL.so.1 but not sure what I need to do to fix. Any ideas welcome.


on further investigation /usr/lib/nvidia-304/libOpenCL.so.1 is not there

what I have is the nvidia opencl lib as I would expect

/usr/lib/nvidia-304/libnvidia-opencl.so.304.88
/usr/lib32/nvidia-304/libnvidia-opencl.so.304.88

any ideas?

edit, 304.88 is opencl 1.1, did try 319.xx and lost all gpu, no detection in boinc etc. Will try again, though still think that version from the repos are open cl 1.1.

All my pending solo's are a quorum of 2 as well. Oh well, at least they are halfway completed :) Never hurts to have some points tucked away in the bank...

To quote something someone from the team The Knights Who Say Ni! would say:
I'm not quite dead yet. I'm feeling much better! ;-)


Just try to stay away from the ankle biting !

Is this project definitely dead? No information from the project owner??

I think dead is a bit extreme for a couple of days of problems that will be fixed sometime. People are allowed a few days off and I believe some of the other posts have explained this.
