Message 78145 - Posted: 22 May 2017, 21:18:07 UTC

I have a question...
Is there a post (somewhere) that addresses this: ??
Someone know an answer??

I have Radeon/ATI 7750 GPU running Ubuntu Mate 16.10 crunching E@H happily with Mesa OpenCL with a PPA.
BOINC says :(driver version 17.2.0-devel, device version OpenCL 1.1 Mesa 17.2.0-devel

I have another machine (pc-10) that used to run fglrx. I want to upgrade to 16.04 or later.
Can't find a working driver with PPA for Mesa opencl for any of
Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus)
Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak)
Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus)

(without PPA does not work either.)
BOINC can find GPU but WU errors out in 3 to 4 seconds.
E*H results file says error is:
Invalid bitcast
  %21 = bitcast %union.anon addrspace(4)* %6 to i8*
Invalid bitcast
  %22 = bitcast %union.anon addrspace(4)* %4 to i8*
Invalid bitcast
  %23 = bitcast %union.anon addrspace(4)* %2 to i8*
LLVM ERROR: Broken function found, compilation aborted!


other errors have to do with atomic insruction.

for a while, a wide range of errors are accessible at: (due to trying different drivers)
The errors on pc-10 (https://einsteinathome.org/host/12533566)

https://einsteinathome.org/task/646873535
https://einsteinathome.org/task/647476568

Been trying for 4 days. Now time to ask.
Please help.

T H A N K Y O U,
Jay

PS
PPA that I used now supported for LTS and 17.04
I cant get any to work
BOINC sees card; but WU fails.
AMDGPU-Pro won't work for 7750

Have you asked at Einstein if their application is Mesa OpenCL compatible? Because if it isn't... one OpenCL isn't the equal to another.

Hi Jord,
I didn't ask because I have the same board in another machine happily crunching on E@H GPU WU with
a version of OpenCL. It has been running in Ubuntu (mate) 16.10 (Yakkety YaK)

I can't get that PPA anymore since those are now developed for the LTS and current release.
I have tried the blunt force method - 5 PPA on three releases.
All errored.

I wanted to test on some SETI GPU WU but that well is apparently dry.

I hope I'm missing something.

Right now, I'm missing a beer.

How have you been? Good news you want to share?
I think the US politics is making a market in zoloft. :-)

Send a case your way?

Seti is down at the moment for maintenance, which is why you won't get work from there. And trouble is, the information about Mesa OpenCL not being (always) compatible with project apps came from a thread there, but since they're in maintenance, I can't link to it. But at least Seti applications won't work with Mesa either, because of it being different from Khronos OpenCL with which the apps are built.

Jord,
Thank you! I am amazed.

IT may be a waste of time, but I tried something else (as well.)

I did a ppa-purge on the mesa opencl,
and re-reviewed the AMD documentation.
Either it changed or I mis read-it, or I read a different thread.
Anyway, I got the AMD script matched for 7700 and Ubuntu 16.04 and it installed the .deb files it made.
I rebooted (Yay - no black screen) and resrtarted BOINC.

BOINC recognized the GPU with OpenCL.
But the Einstein WU failed.

I'll pursue this with the Einstein Forum - since building the AMD code for the release
seems (to me) to be the least weird of the builds and the most predictable in how it could go wrong.
(Trying not to laugh.)

Here is what the WU task log said of the failure....

http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDGPU-PRO-Driver-for-Linux-Release-Notes.aspx
I wonder....
The AMDGPU-PRO driver is OpenCL 1.2 compliant, the GPU you have does OpenCL 1.2, but Mesa is OpenCL 1.1 (incomplete) or 1.0 at best. It's probably missing some instruction(s) these days that the are there in OpenCL 1.2, but aren't in the earlier versions.

But this goes far over my head.

I did a ppa-purge on the mesa opencl,
and re-reviewed the AMD documentation.

Both good ideas, running two drivers on the one device often ends badly.

BOINC recognized the GPU with OpenCL.
But the Einstein WU failed.

I'll pursue this with the Einstein Forum - since building the AMD code for the release
seems (to me) to be the least weird of the builds and the most predictable in how it could go wrong.
(Trying not to laugh.)

I'd say this probably the only way it will go right unless you are handy at c++ and feel happy to help with debugging and writing the missing 1.2 bits at mesa.


Here is what the WU task log said of the failure....

<snip up to the first error>

Max allocation limit: 1350254592

Global mem size: 2040578048

OpenCL shutdown complete!

Google for OpenCL error codes

-6 CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the host.


The apps at E@H take at least .9GBB VRAM - clinfo may be revealing and it is reported there are some environment variables that can be set to eek a little extra, but note from the AMDGPUPRO driver page the risk of pushing OpenCL past the maximum.


Known Issues
System hangs when OpenCL™ attempts to allocate more than available system memory.


I see some valid tasks at E@H so seems good.

Hi!
Having a good weekend?

... in recap of amdGPU pro on Ubuntu Release 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) 64-bit with Radeon 7750...
Installed are:
aptitude search opencl | grep ^i

I tried to google the -33 error but NO luck for me.

( Am I correct in assuming that error message is about system memory on the CPU ?
Or is it talking abount memory on the GPU???)

I will check BOINC config and allow 95% of memory - ansd swap memory
and run vmstat when starting BOINC and starting an Einstein GPU.
(will see if SETI GPU WU available too.)


@agentB
I have an earlier installation of Ubunto 16.10 the DOES work with Mesa Opencl.
Recently ried 16.04. 16.10, and 17.05 with Ubuntu's Mesa's OpenCL packages.

I guess I should swap cards too. Rule out a hardware problem.

here is what the error report on einstein shows:

Message 78343 - Posted: 29 May 2017, 5:17:37 UTC - in response to Message 78341.  

In pc-10, the Machine running Ubuntu 16.04 with the AMDGPU-Pro Diver, I swapped the GPU card with the one that can successfully crunch Einstein GPUs. (Test the small chance there is a hardware error.)

The WU fails in 5 seconds with the same error.

---------------------------
Also tried a SETI GPU WU

Today, Tuesday is The SETI maintenance day. So, no SET WU to test.
will clean disk and start afresh with Ububtu 16.10.
I do have a 16.10 working on another machine with a 7750.
I'll edit this post and add what it says.

Message 78435 - Posted: 31 May 2017, 18:34:54 UTC - in response to Message 78397.  

Greetings,
A bit of a recap,
I have two machines - both running Ubuntu Mate - Both with Radeon 7750.
One is running Ubuntu Mate 16.10 - which is nether the LTS release nor the Latest release (it is between them).
I can crunch Einstien and SETI GPU WU on it.- and have been for several months.

So , I wanted to upgrade the other machine, runng fglrx drivers with Ubuntu 14.something.
But, I could not find the correct driver - paired with a release for it.
It *appears* that the AMDGPU-Pro driver does crunch on any of the 3 latest Ubuntu releases.
I did a hit and miss test of 16.04, 16.10, and 17.04 - all failed.
So I started over with a better test plan.
(I am not a tester. I should have started with a better trail of results - so I started over, again.)

In trial and error fashion, for each release, I am trying the drivers released by Ubuntu and PPAs:
- The AMDGPU-pro driver ( a script-built set of packages.)
-The mesa-opencl-icd package
- the x-swat PPA
-The stable Padoka Stable Mesa PPA -- https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/pkppa/
- The unstale (lates release) Padoka PPA -- https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/mesa
- Other PPAs as -- https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/ubuntu/graphics-drivers

(Note: Dias and Oibaf have worked together putting releases into Launchpad.)
The last post in this thread was a recap that works - but I didn't save the info on which PPA it was.
That release was installed when 16.10 WAS the latest release. It no longer is, and Most PPAs only support the LTS and the latest.
So I am now testing Ubuntu Mate 16.10 with the various drivers available.
(Looking at the output of clinfo shows differences; but I don't know which are significant to crunch a WU.
Probably depends on the WU.)

The results so far on this release: (I'm leaving out the details today.)
- Tuesday May 30 2017 Mesa opencl 'out-of-the box' : Fails
- mesa-opencl-icd mesa-common-dev libopencl-2.1-1 ocl-icd-libopencl1 : Fails
- try the Stable -- https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/pkppa : Fails
- try Updated and Optimized Open Graphics Drivers -- https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/ubuntu/graphics-drivers/
(sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers)

It has been running for an hour and has 20 minutes to go on an Einstein GPU WU.
I'll do another posting when there is one successful completion. (yay!)
