Fedora 30 5.1.16-300.fc30.x86_64
Boinc 7.14.2 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
NVIDIA-SMI 430.34 Driver Version: 430.34 CUDA Version: 10.1
GeForce GTX 960

boinc --detect_gpus creates the file coproc_info.xml which says I have
cuda>1
name>GeForce GTX 960
ram>1.9gig
etc.....
stdoutgpudetect.txt says Missing start tag in cc_config.xml

If I systemctl start boinc-client.service and run boincmgr I don't get any GPU work
If I cd /var/lib/boinc and nohup boinc & I get GPU work.
What's the fix?
Thanks

So I ran dnf install cuda (previous I had run rpm -i cuda...rpm and my first full day was over 2 million credits. A 3 fold increase.
WOW!

I was running Fedora 25 and upgraded to FC29. My box is a 6 core AMD 1090T, 20 GB RAM and a NVIDIA GTX-770. For the past period of time I've been running 925,000 credits per day. I also have boinc on a separate disk, OS on sda, boinc on sdb. So that after a upgrade all I have to do is repoint boinc-client.service to sdb. (aside: after all the hassle of re-installing NVIDIA & CUDA). Now for the past couple of days I'm getting 300,000 credits/day.

Before the upgrade I remember running a "ps" and getting several lines (4? 5?) like:
projects/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz/collatz_sieve_1.
projects/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz/collatz_sieve_1.
projects/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz/collatz_sieve_1.

now I only have 1 job running - but then that was the other day and I have trouble remembering what I had for dinner last night.

Any thoughts? What would you like to see?

Thanks

Post:
stdoutdae.txt has the following line just after detecting my GPU

ATI: libaticalrt.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm running on FC22/GeForce gpu. I searched and found an rpm and downloaded ... requires catalyst. OK, dl that, requires 3 more rpms. So is it worth it to go on a Where's Waldo? trek? Would it gain me anything? DNF info says there are 65 perl packages. Am I being taken for a walk in the woods???
Thanks

Fedora 22
Boinc 7.6.22 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu via DNF install

systemctl runs, ps grep boinc show it running for ... 2? 3? minutes then dies. No projects are started.

If I "cd /var/lib/boinc" then "nohup boinc &" everything runs.

Suggestions please
Thanks

SOLVED. (good news)

(the bad) Not sure how I did it... but I have a Seti ... CUDA(60).
I downloaded
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.96.run
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-346...rpm
dnf install cuda
dnf install kernel-devel kernel-headers
dnf install libvdpau
dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
dnf install kmod kmod-libs kmod-devel libmikmod libmikmod-devel mikmod
dnf install $(nvidia-detect)
dnf install vdpauinfo libva-vdpau-driver libva-utils
dnf install plymouth-theme-solar

and somehow I got/get:
CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTS 250 (driver version 340.96, CUDA version 6.5, compute capability 1.1, 1023MB, 943MB available, 622 GFLOPS peak)
07-Jul-2016 07:02:29 [---] OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTS 250 (driver version 340.96, device version OpenCL 1.0 CUDA, 1023MB, 943MB available, 622 GFLOPS peak)
07-Jul-2016 07:02:29 [---] [coproc] NVIDIA library reports 1 GPU

So it looks like I may be back - time will tell.

search... rpm ..Not found WTF? go get it manually
Fedora 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 ah, 21? 22?
Oh we decided it was out-dated so it's no longer supported.

To put it mildly - [redacted]

After much time on the web searching for a solution to my problem I have come the conclusion that under FC-19 and the Boinc/projects of the load that my GPU was being used. Now it's not. What determines if the GPU is to be used. I have to think, Boinc, because the MGR log says "No usable gpu found" comes from the boingmgr log. My card is a GeForce GTS 250, but not found in the usable list - by Boinc.

More detail: I backed up my home dir. De-raided my system (kept getting failing drive - another story). Loaded FC22 from scratch - dnf install(ed) boinc-client boincmgr. When I started the first time I said Connect to BAM I'm returning... it knew who I was and put everything back and started running at 33%.


PS - I've found I can ONLY start boinc or mgr after I "cd /var/lib/boinc" - if not nothing happens.

Last week I was running FC19 with a version of Boinc from about 3 years ago. My CPU is a AMD 6 core and I was averaging 30,000 credits per day. Last week I upgraded to FC22 and reloaded Boinc (DNF) My credits dropped to < 10,000. Any thoughts?
Thanks

Any why not?

I have a Orange Pi PC, quad core @ 1.6 running Fedora 22.
I've installed boinc-client and boinc-manager

systemctl start boinc-client.service

ps -ef | grep boinc
boinc 15430 1 0 Apr10 ? 00:00:00 /bin/bash /usr/bin/boinc --dir /var/lib/boinc
boinc 15431 15430 1 Apr10 ? 00:07:47 /usr/bin/boinc_client --allow_multiple_clients --dir /var/lib/boinc

Then I ran boincmgr and added a project (einstein) and got the files. But ps doesn't change and nothing seems to be happening. boinccmd --get_tasks returns nothing - it's as if I'm talking to my teenage kid.
Ideas???
Tks

The other day I build a second FC-19 box (as a NAS). So I install Boinc and it's running fine - "New or Current...?" Current, Your email. connected - it saw me set everything up. But no stats are showing up and it's not in Host List.

Didn't know it wasn't "boinc dev" that didn't do the builds. Have to research who does the builds.

7.2.33 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu from the log file.

boincmgr says there is a newer version which I downloaded, it installs in my home dir

(stop boinc_client)

I haven't had time to try to figure out what the problem is - the old version is running and the woods are dark and ....

Oh, my credits seem to be getting posted
2014-03-08
1,819,323
3,231
70,035

so I'm not too worried - just trying to have things run as well as possible.

There isn't a "export BOINCCFG=/var/lib/boinc" ????? or cc_config ??? and I have to cd to /var/lib/boinc to start the program? I'm trying to think of one other program that requires me to cd specificdir to run. thinking, thinking... nope.

As an ex-software tester - defect!
-------------------
more investigation: as root I can "boincmgr -d /var/lib/boinc" from anywhere but as "chuck" it won't run - well it comes up - blank and won't connect.

Hmmm... boingmgr works fine - if started in /var/lib/boinc. I still can't get boinc to report - I've got about 30 "ready to report" in Tasks.
