SETI MB CUDA for Linux
« on: 18 Jan 2009, 08:03:10 pm »


Howdy,

as the thread title says... if you're nuts enough, give them a try.

VERY IMPORTANT!!! Note that these applications are meant for ADVANCED USERS.

Take a look at the README.TXT for some instructions.

Remember, this is still a work in progress and can crash!



dedicated to no-skilldude :p

[Mod:] Removed outdated/bad 32 bit build

[Warning note:] The remaining 64 bit build was made more than a year before nVidia released Fermi class GPUs (GTX 4xx, etc. with compute capability 2.0 and above). It will appear to work very quickly with those cards, but most results will be false "-9 result_overflow" cases. So use it only with older GPUs.

Unfortunately on app_info.xml for MB+AP both 32 and 64 bit, in line 25,  there is a very small error, a . too many.

thanks for noticing. It's corrected now ;)

A small tip for those of you who choose option 2 from readme.txt concerning the cuda libs. After you edit ld.so.conf you need to run ldconfig as root to rebuild the libraries cache.

nice work :)
I already crunched ~20 units on 2 computers with the 64bit app, some are already validated. Run times are 2-3x faster on my G92 based cards than my C2D & C2Q @ 3.4 and 3.2GHz, except for the VLARs...
Due to being Linux only, I was limited to GPUGRID up to yesterday. In only 5 months my GPUs made this by far my strongest project. Now its time to give some attention to SETI :)

Thanks for the port!

I crunshed several units. One was already correctly validated. The others have error messages:
<core_client_version>6.4.5</core_client_version>
<![CDATA[

For windows version I would propose to update drivers. No idea if it applicable to Linux...

Yes, what is your driver version?

Can you give us a link to that workunit?

I am using the latest 180.06. Thats a CUDA 2.1 Beta driver for OpenSUSE 11.0. But I am using it on OpenSUSE 11.1.

Workunit Link is:

Hmm, you have these errors in all your results except one.

I know this won't help you much but I've done more than a hundred workunits without a single error. I'm using the latest official stable drivers 180.22. Go to http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_ia32_180.22.html to grab them.

Have you overclocked your card? Do you know what temperatures it gets when running cuda?

Edit: Read here http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/nvidia-installer-HOWTO.html for a how-to. I've also found this http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA

OK... To jump in with both feet and an AMD Athlon64 X2 + nVidia 8600 GT and...

Read all about the fun on s@h: Boinc 6.6.2 just released (CUDA)

Briefly, it appears to be working with two nice 19 tasks and additionally a nice 10 s@h CUDA task. Except that that the Boinc Manager consistently crashes whilst starting. The boinc client runs on unperturbed...

Good effort on the compile. What to check next?

It works for me with Seti CUDA Linux 64 bits application and 8800GTS512 GPU card (Asus EN8800GTS).
It takes 6 minutes to calculate one work unit.
Thank you for this application.  ;)
