15:07 <randomaussie> hi guys... anyone laive?

15:07 <randomaussie> alive***

15:09 <randomaussie> does anyone know how i can make its so boinc always auto loads with optirun?

15:17 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

15:29 <PovAddict> randomaussie: depends on what your distro is using to start boinc on boot

15:37 <randomaussie> i have ubuntun 12.04 .... but it looks to not matter cause my last auto remove sees to have broken my laptop :(

15:37 <randomaussie> seems*

15:37 <randomaussie> bloody starting agian

15:45 <randomaussie> seeing as i have to reinstall again.. what workes better with boinc?   cuda or bumblebee?

15:46 <PovAddict> those are not comparable things

15:47 <randomaussie> ahh

15:47 <randomaussie> i clearly have no idea what i'm talking about then

15:47 <randomaussie> if i use cuda i have 16 cuda processors on my ion2.. can boinc take advantage of those?

15:48 <PovAddict> you mean 16 graphics cards, basically?

15:48 <randomaussie> uhh. that sounds bizare... but the chipset i'm using says it has 16 cuda processors

15:49 <randomaussie> i'm new to all this since i started using linux... on my desktop windows boinc is hapily using both my gpus with out anything more then the standard nvidia drivers

15:50 <PovAddict> Optimus is a pain in the ass for which Nvidia didn't release Linux drivers

15:50 <PovAddict> Bumblebee is an attempt to support Optimus on Linux

15:50 <randomaussie> i dont have optimus.. but i do have a ion2 that masqurades in windows as a intel vga, untill you load something 3d and it magically changes

15:51 <randomaussie> linux detects it as 2 seperate cards

15:51 <PovAddict> it probably *is* two separate cards

15:52 <randomaussie> O.o ok

15:52 <PovAddict> that's what modern laptops have: simple and energy-efficient GPU for normal desktop use, and a fast powerful GPU for intensive games and such, and some system to transparently switch between them

15:53 <randomaussie> i'm not big on laptops... dont know much about them.... all i'm trying to do is set this up to basiaclly be portable mail/movies/social netowork... and have it crunch boinc when i just leave it running like my desktop does..

15:54 <randomaussie> yeah wel i want to get the gpu working for my steam games

19:08 <desti_T2> to use a second card for cuda, you don't need optimus

20:54 <zombie67> does asteroids checkpoint?

20:54 <zombie67> or how can I tell?

20:59 *** Jackster has quit IRC

21:20 <PovAddict> zombie67: I think there's some boinc debug flag you can enable that will report when the app checkpoints
