I'm trying to get some GPU work going on my Mac Pro. It is running 10.13.6 and has a GeForce GT120. Not the best card in the world but it's all there is. I have the latest nVidia drivers installed and this card should be supported by the driver, opencl, and the project.

And the project does indeed download work units. But almost instantly, these work units give a Computation Error. Every one. Over and over.

What might be going on here? I'm not sure where to look to even try to troubleshoot this problem.

I would guess a permissons issue,
Setting process priority to 0 (13): Permission denied


Have you tried the Milky way boards

I can't connect with any aspect of MilkyWay.- not my account, new work, message boards or home page. Even the link on the BOINC science project list doesn't work.

Anybody else having problems?

I can't get to the BOINC part, but the Uni's web site is still there.

that board does not support double precision float. All GPU tasks will fail.
