Message 94019 - Posted: 5 Dec 2019, 9:31:57 UTC

I have motherboard with 2 video boards. It's computing with the same driver, 390, under Ubuntu 18.04. I must work, also on PC about 6 hours per day, so I want GPU device 0, witch outputs on monitor, to be suspended and device 1 to be always active. This the last one is just for computing. How can I do that ?
Thx.

Refer to the User Manual.

Create, or if you have one already, edit, a file called 'cc_config.xml'. The easiest way is probably to edit the logging options from BOINC Manager (Ctrl+Shift+F), which will create a complete template file for you to work from. You'll probable need an administrator/sudo editor to make changes.

Then, add a block to the 'Options' section, as shown in the manual. Something like

<ignore_nvidia_dev>N</ignore_nvidia_dev>
Ignore (don't use) a specific NVIDIA GPU. You can ignore more than one. Replaces <ignore_cuda_dev/>. Requires a client restart.
Example: <ignore_nvidia_dev>0</ignore_nvidia_dev> will ignore the first NVIDIA GPU in the system.
I need to edit go downstairs to remind myself of the likely location of the new cc_config.xml file - I'll edit it in.

The file on my Ubuntu system with BOINC v7.16.3 is in

/etc/boinc-client

I've done and it works. But as always only if I restart the computer i can manage to restrt boinc. I closed boinc manager, automatic shut down of client but when I open boinc manager it says that is trying to conect to boinc client. Then disconected. If i open boinc client from terminal i get no projects attached.

That's good - happy to help.

Be aware that when BOINC v7.16.x is finally, fully, released, the restart command will change to

sudo systemctl start boinc-client

I prefer the old method, as it's the same as Folding@Home.

You are free to use whatever method you want, provided you check that it actually works the way you want it to.

/etc/boinc-client

The 4 files in /etc/boinc-client/ are sym linked to the ones in /var/lib/boinc-client/ so while it appears you have one in each folder they are the same files. You can edit it in either folder.

Bear with me - I'm still a newbie in Linux.

Since I wrote that, I found that I can go through the symlink from /var/lib/boinc-client/ and edit the file as myself. If I edit the 'real' file in etc/boinc-client/, I have to use sudo.

Given that cc_config.xml is an optional file, does anyone happen to know whether the file and the symlink are created 'empty' by the installer, or whether they appear after first use?

Given that cc_config.xml is an optional file, does anyone happen to know whether the file and the symlink are created 'empty' by the installer, or whether they appear after first use?

From memory the package installer has a cc_config.xml that has a couple of the logging flags set to their default values, so it’s not an empty file and it’s present once you’ve installed the boinc-client package.
