Help installing CUDA version
« on: 03 Nov 2009, 05:50:49 pm »
I'm kinda new the this on linux.  I'm not to sure how to install this custom version of seti to use CUDA. I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 with a 9800gtx.  I can't even find where to put this file, setiathome-CUDA-6.08.x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.

Also I already installed the CUDA libs, in lib64 or w/e

Welcome aboard :)

1) If you use BOINC from synaptic uninstall it, it is probably old. Go to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php and get 6.10.17. Install it to your /home directory.
2)  Make sure all the appropriate cuda libs from 2.3 toolkit

libcudart.so
libcudart.so.2
libcudart.so.2.2
libcufft.so
libcufft.so.2
libcufft.so.2.2

are in the projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu directory.

3)  Edit accordingly your ld.so.conf or the corresponding ld-something file of your distro with the above location of the cuda libs and then run ldconfig to update the cache.

4. The cuda executable (setiathome-CUDA-6.08.x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) goes also to the projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu directory. Copy also the app_info.xml file there.

Please post your app_info.xml and a link to your host.

What driver do you use?

Ok, reformated, had other problems, anyway, got past that, how do I know if its running on my GPU? it said it was fetching work for the cpu and gpu. Does that mean it's working?

You can check your graphics card temperature. It should be a lot hotter that idle. You can also check your processes with System Monitor or top.

Ok, in the message tab it seems to be asking for work for the GPU specifically, but then it gets 0 new tasks, with a message from the server: No work sent.

In your boinc directory create a file called cc_config.xml and put this inside:

<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <sched_op_debug>1</sched_op_debug>
        <work_fetch_debug>1</work_fetch_debug>
    </log_flags>
    <options>
    </options>
</cc_config>

Restart boinc, let it run for a while and post here the messages.

I don't see anything bad. There was a shortage of workunits for the last week or so. Maybe this is it. Maybe we should wait and see. Can you also post the messages when boinc starts?
