    Hi,

    is the source code available for download ?
    I'd like to compile a native 64 bit app.

    TIA

      OK... So you don't think a replying is needed... however you "try" to disable "anonymous platform" server side, thinking it'll solve the "problem" of using tuned gmp.dll's... well it doesn't. And don't even go there by claiming invalid results by that... If you do, well you're project's a FAKE !!!

      Instead i've disabled all file checking in the boinc client to prevent you from escaping a reply by messing with the server code....

      Nice try but all of you affort's are futile ;)

      Be honest and finally post a reply !!!


      So how about opening up and posting a reply here instead of trying to mess with things behind the scenes ???

        Hi Crunch3r,

        first of all sorry for my late reply.

        is the source code available for download ?

        Not yet, but I'll put it in the next days online.

          Well, the thing about the "blocking" was refering to the reply send by your server, disabling getting new work for anonymous clients, which led me to hack the boinc client source code to disable this silliness.

          Anyway, looking forward to see the code being available for download.

          Thanks

            That would be appreciated a lot. Since my times are closing to three hours those segfaults start to bother me.

              Well,

              no source code release since Fabios last reply....
              anyway for those using windows 32 bit having at least a sse3 capable CPU, goto
              -> http://board.boincunited.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=6263

              Speedup should be ~ 30 to 50% depending o your CPU.

                    I did a single task, just to try, and it did crunch a lot faster.
                    unfortunatly it wasn't accepted by the server!
                    I also got the 'anonymous platform unsupported' message....!

                      First of all... sorry for the late reply, i was extremely busy at work (had to work saturdays and sundays as well for 14 days straight :( ) ...

                      Anyway,you have to use a boinc version prior to 7.0.40 to make it work.

                      The whole problem was caused by WCG ->


                      Kevin at WCG
                      This is because a bug was fixed in the BOINC client. World Community Grid has never supported the anonymous platform mechanism. However, because of two bugs, one in the client and one in the server, volunteers were able to fetch work using the anonymous platform at WCG.

                      The bug that is fixed in the BOINC client is that before 7.0.40, if you were using the app_info.xml file & your client supported an 'alt-platform', then the client would send 'anonymous' as the primary platform but also report an 'alt-platform' (which it should not have been sent).

                      The issue on the server side is as follows. When the server receives a request, it adds the primary platform and any alt-platforms that the project supports to an 'allowed platform' list. If the first platform on the allowed platform list is the anonymous platform, then the server code handles the request using the anonymous platform code path. If the list size is 0 then a message is reported back to the client that the platforms reported are not supported.

                      The server bug is that if the primary platform is the anonymous platform, then any alt-platforms should not be considered. Instead, the server code added the alt-platforms to the list anyway.

                      This is an issue for us because since we do not support the anonymous platform, that is discarded during processing and not added to the allowed platform list. However, the alt-platforms are added to the list. Since the list size is > 0, processing continues down the normal server side logic. It is this that caused the generation of the 'ignored app version' message. It also meant that if I user only specified hcc1 in their app_info.xml file, but they had opted into receiving work for more than hcc1, then they would be assigned work from those other projects and the client would immediately discard that work (and not report that fact to the server).

                      After discussing with BOINC, the decision was that volunteers should be able to have fine grain control over how many instances of a job are run on their GPU and that the anonymous platform mechanism is not the way that should be done. The decision was made to create the app_config.xml file so that volunteers could have control over this by making changes to the file which has been added in the 7.0.40 client. Volunteers at World Community Grid should be looking as this is stabilized as the way to run multiple copies of HCC1 GPU on your graphics card at one time.

                      Once the changes for the app_config.xml file are in a stable BOINC client release, we will disable the anonymous platform on the server side. We will provide warning in this forum before we do that and we will allow time for volunteers to upgrade to the stable client build before we disable the feature.


                      If you can't downgrade for whatever reason, i can provide a modified boinc 7.2.4 client that will work.

                      Just let me know and i'll upload the client (64 bit windows ONLY).

                      EDIT:
                      you can download the client here -> http://board.boincunited.org/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=6264

                      added features:

                      <options>
                      <rise_gpu_priority>0|1|2|3|4</rise_gpu_priority>
                      </options>

                      increases gpu thread priority from below normal(0) up to above normal(4)

                      propper detection of:

                      - AMD HD 4830/4850/4870/4770
                      - AMD HD 5830/5850/5870

                            I tried some Win32 bit boxes; they all fail.
                            The Win64 (XP en 7) working just fine.

                            On my AMD 1090T a workunit now takes 59 min.
                            That gives it a rac of 29k

                            I wonder why it works with 64bit OS machines only?

                              it's the only 6 core machine in the top 60 (now 22e place)

                                My AMD1090 is almost stabile at 28k+ per day (not overclocked)
                                it's the only 6 core machine in the top 60 (now 22e place)

                                Thanks Crunch3r !


                                You're welcome buddy ;)

                                If only Fabio Campos would stick to his word and finally release the source code, one could compile a windows & linux 64 bit version as well, which would the at least twice faster than the "optimized" 32 bit one....

                                  tbh, I'm crunching here on my win7-64 machine now; not that a 64-bit app wouldn't give better crunch times, it probably would. But hitherto, on my Linux box, which is using a 64-bit Linux; all this project gives upon attaching is platform unsupported. A 64-bit Linux app really would assist with that, there...

                                    How about finally releasing the source code ?
