17:45 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: because 6.10 is not out yet

17:46 <PovAddict> so fixes for serious problems are backported to 6.6 for people to use

17:46 <Tank_Master> well...

17:46 <Tank_Master> not supprising when they keep fiddeling around with more than one branch :P

19:04 *** renefghgj has joined #boinc

19:16 *** zombie67 has joined #boinc

19:17 <zombie67> There is some problem with BOINC working properly with two GPUs that aren't exactly the same.  What is the problem?

19:17 <PovAddict> that it's just plain not supported

19:18 <PovAddict> by default, BOINC will only run on the "most capable" of the two

19:18 <zombie67> will only run?  Or will only fetch work for?

19:18 <PovAddict> you can configure it so it runs on both, but will actually pretend both are identical

19:18 <PovAddict> I really did mean "run"...

19:18 <zombie67> okay

19:19 <zombie67> so let's say I have a 9400 GT and a 9500 GT

19:19 <PovAddict> then, as I understand it, by default, it runs science apps on your 9500 GT and ignores your 9400

19:19 <zombie67> what does it mean that BOINC will pretend they are the same?

19:19 <PovAddict> if you use a cc_config.xml with the "run in all GPUs" tags, it will pretend you have two 9500GTs

19:19 <zombie67> assuming I configure it to run them both

19:19 *** G3rlinde has quit IRC

19:20 <zombie67> okay, so it may d/l too much work

19:20 <PovAddict> which means it may fetch slightly too much work

19:20 <PovAddict> and

19:20 <zombie67> some work may be late

19:20 <PovAddict> suppose a project has configuration saying "send work only to 9500GT or better; app doesn't run in 9400"

19:20 <PovAddict> it will try to run on the 9400 anyway, because BOINC is pretending it has two 9500s

19:20 <zombie67> fair enough.

19:21 <zombie67> Okay, that is only a problem for GPUgrid

19:21 <PovAddict> that's obviously unlikely... but it may happen if the two GPUs are more different

19:21 <zombie67> and GPU grid won't take a 9400 or a 9500

19:21 <PovAddict> I don't think the diff between 9400 and 9500 is significant

19:21 <zombie67> so I am good

19:21 <zombie67> one is 2x the other.

19:21 <Tank_Master> 2x the shaders

19:21 <Tank_Master> but same otherwise I believe

19:21 <zombie67> which means 2x a snail

19:21 <Tank_Master> cept perhaps the amount of ram

19:21 <PovAddict> but if you have a card woth 256MB VRAM and another with 1GB, and BOINC tells the project you have two 1GB cards, and the app seriously doesn't fit in 256MB...

19:22 <zombie67> okay, thanks for the help

19:22 <zombie67> these two are close enough, both too slow for GPUGRID, and both with 1gb RAM

19:22 <zombie67> so I can run them both in a single machine

19:22 <zombie67> using a cc_config

20:13 <Tank_Master> PovAddict, the part where you were talking about varing GPUs, thats ony of the same manufacture, right?

20:13 <Tank_Master> it, if I have 1 ATI and 1 Nvidia, BOINC will use both w/o haveing to do any config?

20:13 <PovAddict> ATI and nVidia are handled completely separately

20:13 <Tank_Master> ok

20:13 <Tank_Master> thx

20:14 <PovAddict> that's all "afaik"

20:14 <Tank_Master> right

20:14 <PovAddict> I haven't even got cuda to work on my machine (but not like I tried too much)

20:14 <Tank_Master> or "afaif" (as far as I figure)

20:25 <PovAddict> someone should put that in boinc-wiki.info before the site finishes rotting

20:32 <Tank_Master> which?

20:32 <Romulus> It has been said that which is boinc 5.x dataDirection, Tank_Master

20:32 <Tank_Master> forget which

20:32 <Romulus> Okay!

20:33 <Tank_Master> forget everything

20:33 <Romulus> 10-4, Tank_Master.

20:33 <Tank_Master> heh

20:33 <PovAddict> which what?

20:33 <Tank_Master> which should get put into the wiki?

20:33 <Tank_Master> info about the GPU or AFAIF?

20:33 *** efc has joined #boinc

20:33 <Tank_Master> efc!

20:34 <efc> It is I

20:34 <PovAddict> info about GPU handling

20:35 <Tank_Master> ahh, yeah

20:36 <PovAddict> well, that and a lot more

20:36 <PovAddict> nobody uses the wiki

20:36 <Tank_Master> didnt even know there was one

20:36 <PovAddict> because it's so out of date, and nobody updates it
