New to GPU computing and trying to track down the problem.

Clean install of Ubuntu20.04 on a Ryzen7 with with 32GB RAM and a GT710 video card.
BOINC version 7.16.6 I keep getting lots of the the following in stderr on all tasks. (First task got several hours in before crashing I think due to machine being turned off which I don't normally do as my CPDN cpu tasks are sensitive to this. I tried a project reset in case I had any corrupted files downloaded but to no avail.
I suspect this is something simple but only when you know the answer!

Now installing the cuda drivers to see if that changes anything.

A driver change seems to have resolved the problem of tasks failing in first two seconds so fingers crossed all is well. Will report back in five minutes and if task completes will re-enable longer ones on website preferences.

Edit: Problem solved, I have now had first GPU task complete.

Good to hear!
Be sure to install all necessary drivers and updates before a challenge too.

Thanks,

Not that interested in challenges as most of my cpu power goes to CPDN, either main site or testing branch but there are times when they have little work available and having a GPU that can crunch after nursing a core2duo for many years with onboard graphics I am enjoying being somewhere in the top half of computers which I haven't been since I first built a machine with an AMD 386 chip many years ago!

The new machine is a trifle faster at the make stage for building BOINC from source too!

Or perhaps not. Got a whole load more tasks with this error. I need to check which ones they are and exclude them.

What sub project tasks are you trying to run? Some apps are more friendly than others, have you tried other sub projects with same results?

All have been different GFS. I think I will try some other projects to see what happens and then try here again.

Try the very short ones, you have an Nvidia 710 with less than 1gb of memory, alot of the longer tasks probably won't fit in the gpu's memory.

Thanks have just re-enabled GPU computing and completed a short one. Also made a couple of minor changes to video settings to make card prioritise performance rather than quality. Don't have a clue if that makes any difference or not. At some point I will get a second GPU card but probably not soon.

Interestingly, I know from my old machine that with CPU tasks it is possible to get them only sent out to computers with enough memory. (the tasks in questions used about 5GB/core) and my old desktop refused to download them because it only had 4GB ram. I wonder if it is possible to do this with GPU tasks as well?

My rig has three GPU cards, I sometimes get failures to heating especially mid day when the sun is glaring through the window. A fan can sometimes help move heat enough to eliminate my issue.

Also, Maybe try some less intensive subprojects like AP27 or GFN15 to see if they complete successfully.

All tasks seem to be completing as expected now. The change in video setting is the only change I have made. Does anyone know why changing the video setting on Ubuntu for the card from prioritising quality to performance should make a difference?
