[Optimized apps] 64bit Linux OpenCL Multibeam r1765 apps for ATI/AMD GPUs by Urs Echternacht 19 Feb 2013, 04:04:28 pm
Optimized apps Please, read OpenCL and other README files that each package contains.
These give instructions how to use these applications and some hints what to configure how.
Especially notes about which driver version works and which fails could be helpful before starting.

As usual, the creation of new release packages was team work of our Lunatics crew (in nicks alphabetical order):
Claggy, Josef W. Segur, Mike, Raistmer, Richard Haselgrove, Urs Echternacht.

[Optimized apps] Optimized AstroPulse_v6 6.01 for Linux 64 & 32 Bit OS by Urs Echternacht 29 Mar 2012, 06:41:47 pm
Optimized apps Optimized AstroPulse_v6 6.01 for Linux 64 & 32 Bit OS
Updated 26th/27th/29th march 2012 w/ new application AstroPulse v6 6.01, revision 546

Seven Linux OS specific editions available now at Lunatics AstroPulse for Linux Public Downloads area

Hi Everyone,
A new version of a SETI@Home AstroPulse optimized application for Linux has been released.

This release offers significantly improved performance for SSE, SSE2, SSE3/PNI & AVX capable computers running 64 and 32 Bit distributions of Linux.
Here you can find a list†containing all the following release builds:

Linux 64 Bit Science App:

A Linux 64 Bit AVX Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 64 bit Linux that have at least AVX capability.

A Linux 64 Bit SSE3/PNI Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 64 bit Linux that have SSE3 (listed as PNI in /proc/cpuinfo) capability.

A Linux 64 Bit SSE2 Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 64 bit Linux that have SSE2 capability.

Linux 32 Bit Science App:

A Linux 32 Bit SSE Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have SSE capability.

A Linux 32 Bit SSE2 Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have SSE2 capability.

A Linux 32 Bit SSE3/PNI Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have SSE3 (listed as PNI in /proc/cpuinfo) capability.

A Linux 32 Bit AVX Intel/AMD Compatible Science App:
Intended for Intel & AMD CPUs, running 32 bit Linux that have AVX capability.

Linux build source is located HERE


VERY IMPORTANT!!! Note that correct install of these applications requires ADVANCED SKILLS.

A customized app_info.xml file WILL need to be properly created and edited if you also run a version of the S@H multi beam application and or CUDA MB application (see below "issues").† Done incorrectly, you may trash your work unit cache and or not be able to receive work.

There will be some known issues and situations to be aware of:
SO:
- As mentioned above, You WILL need to edit or create an appropriate app_info.xml file if you run any combination of Astropulse, Multi-beam, and CUDA MB applications.
- Ensure you choose a build that your CPU/OS will support.† Ask for help If you need assistance determining this. (less /proc/cpuinfo)
- Ensure Boinc & Seti@Home applications are already properly functioning on your machine, read carefully the documentation readmes and installation instructions.
Known issues:
- There is no support for CPUs below SSE capability
- Borderline OC'ers be aware that you may need to back off to maintain stability, the increased throughput of this application will stress all system components more.
- Non overclockers make sure you have a proper cooling and a clean case.
- As always, use these apps AT YOUR OWN RISK.

And finally of course :
Thanks to Urs Echternacht for his Linux port of r546 by Raistmer, Josef W. Segur & JasonG !!!

[Announcements] Donate to Seti@Home Via the GPU Users Group. by Jason G 29 Dec 2011, 03:34:00 am
Announcements Donate to Seti@Home via the GPU Users Group.

† Some of you will have noticed that the donation box on the top left has changed to link to the GPU User's group donation catalog.† This adds flexible options for those wishing to donate to Seti@Home, especially for those wanting to contribute to a specific project need, or have been unable to donate via the direct project means.

 The GPU Users' group have been liaising with project staff very closely to provide easy alternate donation options, along with campaign specific donation capabilities, to purchase equipment directly for the project.

The different types of donations available include:
1. specific campaign.
2. donate specific hardware.
3. donate money.

PayPal and other methods are supported. Close project affiliation ensures donations over $15 earn a 'green star' as do the hardware donations.

If you've been waiting until now to get that green star, then show your support!!!

Thanks,
Jason G

[Optimized apps] Linux x64 Cuda Multibeam (x41g) by Jason G 29 Dec 2011, 02:37:53 am
Optimized apps Linux x64 build of Cuda Multibeam x41g
Available now in the Multibeam for Linux Downloads section
, mirrored at Arkayn's Site

This build is directly from the X-branch, so changes from other prior Linux builds directly reflect current development efforts.† This is an ongoing effort to gradually bring Linux support into greater focus in 2012.

Baseline Cuda X-branch features include:
- Tightened Validation characteristic against CPU builds (accuracy)
- Rarer '-12' triplet related errors
- Fault tolerant behaviour
- 'V7-readiness'
- Linux build uses identical application code to the Windows build (Only differences are OS/Driver/Library related)

Please see the readme for full release notes. READ THEM before you install.

Use at your own risk - 'your mileage may vary'

Thanks go to Aaron Haviland for the port & polish going into X branch for Linux, and it should mean that Cuda build Linux support can continue to develop as further refinements are introduced into the main codebase.† Planned future upgrades currently include improvements to pulsefinding (VLAR behaviour) and removal of the prevalent remaining triplet related '-12' limitations.

Thanks,
Jason G

Extra note, to ALL users:
With gradually expanding Linux development, and experience gleaned from Windows development in recent years, User feedback has played a pivotal role in refinement in all areas.† Along those lines User suggestions (Thanks Sunu!) have prompted that Linux development will require 'opening up' Lunatics site some.† While there are immediate (technical) obstacles to doing so, the needs of both Linux developers & users are under detailed consideration at this time, along with planned modernisation of other platform information & support mechanisms.† For the time being, while these changes are under careful planning and implementation, if you have feedback or need help, & are not a registered user here, please create a thread on Seti@Home's Number Crunching forum.† †Requests for registration here will continue to be considered on a case by case basis, and Development/PreRelease status offered only at the discretion of the developers in those areas.

Build source is located HERE

VERY IMPORTANT!!! Note that correct install of these applications requires ADVANCED SKILLS.

A customized app_info.xml file WILL need to be properly created and edited if you also run a version of the S@H multi beam application (see below "issues & warnings").† Done incorrectly, you may trash your work unit cache and or not be able to receive work.

There will be some known issues and warnings to be aware of:

- As mentioned above, You WILL need to edit or create an appropriate app_info.xml file if you run any combination of Astropulse and Multi-beam applications.
- Ensure Boinc & seti@Home applications are already properly functioning on your machine, read carefully the documentation readmes and installation instructions.
- Ensure you choose a build that your CPU/OS will support.† Ask for help If you need assistance determining this.
- FreeBSD users should know how to handle simple executables.† No installers are included.

Which version to choose for your Mac ?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CPU/MacOSX-------|<=10.3----|---10.4---|---10.5=>-|
----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Core Duo------------|---none-----|----32-----|----32-------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Core2 Duo----------|---none-----|----32-----|-32-or-64--|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

- OSX packages contain a simple installer script (adapted of original by Dotsch).† More complete installer packages are available by Arkayn HERE

Known issues:

- You canít start a AP wu with one of the OSX apps (e.g. 10.5+) and restart/continue with the other (e.g. 10.4+).† The intermediate files are NOT binary compatible.
- In OSX, when updating/switching to new executables, a message will appear that some permissions around BOINC are not correct and it wonít run or restart.† Re-installing BOINC with the same version fixes the issue and will not harm work or data.
- There is no support for CPUs below SSE2 capability
- Borderline OC'ers be aware that you may need to back off to maintain stability, the increased throughput of this application will stress all system components more.†
- As Always, use these apps AT YOUR OWN RISK.

And most Importantly of all:
Thanks to Urs Echternacht for updated source improvements and porting to FreeBSD and OSX, derived from original r112 by Crunch3r, Jason G & Raistmer.

Special thanks once again go to zvonas† for motivating the FreeBSD builds, Arkayn and Gecko† for OSX alpha testing & all the Lunatics members who performed final Beta testing, for their expertise, input & assistance.

To all of you we value your input and would like to hear from you at Lunatics'

Regards,
The Lunatics Team
