So at the moment there is nothing i can do except manually start/stop boinc?

Today i tried to put the mouse directly on the notebook, but it does also not recognize the activity (only once after plug-in).

Hello,
On my Laptop with Ubuntu 18LTS I have set the option to stop calculating while the computer is in use.
This works perfect when i use the internal keyboard and touchpad.
But at home i use a docking-Station with external mouse and keyboard - and this devices are ignored by BOINC.

Is there any way to tell the boinc manager to take all keyboards into account?

Problem was solved.
I put the SSD of one blocked PC in tha last working PC. There i could upload the data.
In the same time i updated/refreshed on the blocked PC #2 and magically there also the upload started.
In the end all WUs are uploaded.

Big underlined note for me: GPUgrid is not amused about cloning an SSD in another PC.

Hello,

i have big trouble with 2 of my PCs to get connected to the GPUGRID Servers.
At the beginning (2 or 3 days ago) the connection was slow and sometimes ended in timeout. But reload did help.
Now GPUgrid ist completely dead. The Website is unreachable, the WUs wont get uploaded.

But a ping to www.gpugrid.net works, only about 10% packet loss.
On the 3rd PC everything is fine.

All 3 PCs are connected to the same router.
The not working PCs have Ubuntu16LTS and the working PC has Ubuntu 18LTS.

The rest of the internet is working also fine.

Any ideas why 2 of my PCs cant talk any more with GPUGRID?
Reboot didnt help.

One thing that might be one piece of the problem: i cloned the SSD of one PC somedays ago and used the clone in the other PC. But the PCs got different names and the IDs in the project are also different. Und at the beginning that was no problem. Both PCs got work and delivered the results. And other projects can communicate with their servers without problems.

Traceroute looks quite similar.

PS: i posted this problem already in the gpugrid forum - but the access to the forum is now also not possible and maybe its a general topic and has been seen on other projects also.
5) Message boards : BOINC Manager : Manual priority settings planned in the future? (Message 84909)
Posted 25 Feb 2018 by Magiceye04
Post:
Sometimes i want to prioritize one or more workunits to get worked "now" or also "later".
But there are no settings in the Boinc-Manager to do this.
At the moment a tried to stop all other work, then the WUs that i want are running. BUT after i allow the other tasks to continue, the wanted WUs stop and the old tasks are running again.
I tried some changes in the workload buffer (1 day, 2 days, 3 days) but it doesnt help.

It seems that the boinc manager is using some complicated (and maybe in most cases useful) algorithms to decide, which WU is running.

Is it possible to give the user some kind of control?
E.G. right click on a WU and say: "Highest priority" (or lowest...)
For hole projects this is popssible, but not for single workunits.

I want to install BOINC on Android 5.1.1 (Odroid C2)

7.4.53 (Recommended Version (and only available version?)) is not working.

I tried this one year ago and after hours of testing i found that 7.4.41 should work.
But now i dont find this version any more. :(
The Link http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php doesnt lead to "ALL versions". Only the latest version is there.

Where do i really find ALL versions?
Could you set a link below the latest version the the other ("all") versions?

Thank you!

No hurry, it was just a suggestion for maybe the next version.

The project is pogs at the moment, but i also had the problem with wgc some weeks ago.

Post:
It didnt help.
Today the message came again.
The image was not compressed, it was a 0 byte file.
Also in Boinc-Manager it was shown as 0 byte to download.

If the images are not necessary for calculation, than the boincmanager should not stop working, it should only show a message.

Thank you, i'll try this.

What are this image files used for? The Option in the settings tell me, that skipping verification reduces security.

And i dont use UMTS or so, its a plain old DSL via telefone line.

Post:
Hi!
I have sometimes the problem, that a project is requesting a download of a .PNG-File or so and this download is not finishing. In most cases the file to download is 0 bytes large.
It happens at several projects on several PCs.
until this download is not finished, other downloads are not started. So the PCs run out of work.

Is this bug known?
Could it be fixed easy?
I think the best solution would be to allow other downloads independent from this stalled download in the boinc manager.

Posted 22 Dec 2012 by Magiceye04
Post:
The PC was set up new last month.
I installed Windows7, then the Nvidia Driver (direct from Nvidia) und then Boinc.
The first weeks i only crunched for seti@home and after a while i tried poem@home but then i got openCL errors.

So it is not possible to set a flag or anything like this in a config file to tell Boinc that there IS openCL ?

Hi!
Boinc does not recognize OpenCL capability on my Nvidia GTS450 GPU.

When i start Boinc there is only one Message regarding the GPU:

...

Other people with Nvidia cards also get this message at startup:

OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 8400M GS (driver version 306.23, device version OpenCL 1.0 CUDA, 128MB, 8380435MB available)

The Problem is that OpenCL Projects such as POEM@Home doesn't work:

But GPU-Z tells me, that OpenCL is active and Lightsmark2.0 is using OpenCL for calculations.
Only Boinc seems not be able to detect OpenCL.

Windows=7Home64
CPU FX-8350, 16GB RAM

I tried this:
Boinc completely new installed (7.0.28)
Geforce-Driver completely new installed (306.97)
The GPU-App of Poem@Home from another user copied on my computer and several app_info.xml from other users that work on their PCs.

GPU-Projects that dont need OpenCL such as Seti@Home or Einstein@Home work fine.

Any further suggestions?

[quote]...Make sure you run BOINC and the GPU "based on preferences" as well. If they're set to run always, even this option in cc_config.xml will be ignored.


Thanks, the run always option was my mistake. Without that option now it works correcly. :)

Post:
I created this cc_config.xml :
<cc_config> 
<options> 
     <exclusive_gpu_app>DScaler.exe</exclusive_gpu_app> 
     <exclusive_gpu_app>vlc.exe</exclusive_gpu_app> 
     <exclusive_gpu_app>mpc-hc.exe</exclusive_gpu_app> 
</options> 
</cc_config>

...and the first days it worked fine. When i started one of the programs, the GPU-Task stopped immediately und continued after closing the program.
But one day i noticed, that now it doesn't work any more. When i start one of the programs, GPU-Task is still running. :(
When i shortly suspend the task manually and continue it 1 second later, then it stays "waiting to run" - also if i close the program. Again it helps to suspend the task manually for a second an then it continues computation.
So i think, the BOINC Manager is detecting the running program but is not able to react.

Any idea, how to get this to automatic GPU-suspending function working correctly?
