Re: Nvidia 3xxx possible specs.

The nvidia-direct cards do look to be better value. The cheapest partner card is over £700.

I haven’t read the reviews in depth to see what they say about thermals mind you. I believe this card is >300w.

Re: Top 100 multi-project BOINC participants

Up the top it says 'Updated 24 Jul 2020', but I don't know the data duration. I show a lot of Moo!, which I only started crunching for the sprint and a few days before, so it must be recent-ish. Last time I saw those stats, CO was way up there on the global rank and I was nowhere. I guess it has to ...

That’s going to need a lot of RAM for all those threads!

Re: Formula BOINC Sprint #10

Here's a performance graph since the morning after sprint start. I've actually skipped out the top 4 teams, since they are some ways ahead of us already. Rosetta is generally a popular project, so there are a lot of people contributing that don't even know about the sprint! http://www.ukboincteam.or...

Err ... that will be a problem, since I crunch it on zero priority (i.e. with no cache!).

Re: QuChem prob

I think they don't put all jobs in VBOX, and VBOX has been a problem for people in the past. It runs natively in Linux though (no VBOX required!), so that's by far the best way to do it ... but I guess you don't usually run Linux. Sorry, I don't usually use the VBOX version.

Re: NEW BOINC Manager version 7.16.7

That -pl command does talk about being able to enable persistent mode, but I have never managed to make it work. I also generally under-clock my GPUs outside of sprints. Running Nvidia-smi afterwards shows the power level is reduced. Are you not seeing that? Or is it not true? It is reduced until r...

Re: NEW BOINC Manager version 7.16.7

Yeah, I noticed that too - from 2014! I suppose that Software Manager in Mint is a package manager, so they pull in more recent versions over time. I've never tried docker. Hi Damien When I installed Mint on my Xeon box for a previous Sprint, I used the "built-in" Software Manager to install AnyDes...

Re: NEW BOINC Manager version 7.16.7

That may well work, although I see that it's an unofficial / untrusted package i.e. there's no way to verify what has been compiled into that package. This page below suggests that 7.16 is still 'in development' for Linux. I'd just leave it, unless you experience a problem. https://boinc.berkeley.ed...

Re: Boinc on Linux

I just learnt a new bunkering tactic! I had no idea that it was possible - or desirable - to upload completed work sometime before actually reporting it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EO2y1d0CEtw&t=321s) Regarding the boinc launch issue, sounds like it's sorted. I checked the commands though, and...

Re: Boinc on Linux

Sounds like the boinc daemon (service) isn't running.

How did you install boinc / boinc manager? Did you use the software manager within Mint?
