    Welcome Velion and Foreworth!

    On a sidenote: it is a bummer that new crunchers get posted here with use of their Crunching nicknames and not their TPU name (if any).

    We usually make the announcement based on the FreeDC announcement so we only know the new members WCG name unless/until they post here on the forum (joining TPU isn't required to join the Team AFAIK).

    Hey, hello and thanks Norton and Chevalr1c!

    First time using World Community Grid! I've been into Folding@Home TPU Team since long ago (2008-2009) but almost a year that i was inactive w/o folding ... two weeks ago i decided to return and when i was surfing these forums for more FAH info ... i found WCG and i decided to try it two days ago, of course, i choose TPU Team w/o a doubt :D

    I'll be at both projects whenever is possible ... also i'm planning to rescue some old components, a Q8200 and an ATI 9300 (my old HD4850 died *sniff*) ... and mount a cruncher to let it run 24/7 for distributed computing.

    Thanks again for the welcome! :toast:
     
    okidna, [Ion], Chevalr1c and 2 others say thanks.

    Welcome aboard! :toast:
    That old Q8200 is still a solid chip--I have half a dozen Core 2s running as part of my farm ;)

    Let us know if we can assist in any manner :toast:

    Thank you [Ion], at this moment i'm just crunching with my i5-2500K at 4.2GHz ... BOINC was not recognizing my ATI card ... so i started searching, in the forums i noticed out that my version was outdated so i downloaded the last available BETA for MacOS X which is 7.0.44, now the ATI is recognized but as far as i can tell, there is no available work for it in the last three hours ... i read in the official BOINC documentation that if your card is recognized by the client, it should be able to crunch but is not getting any projects. I have activated the option "Use the GPU while computer is in use"

    I also read this but as i don't have multiple GPU's i don't think that's needed. Any tip or any other post that i should read to make the HD6850 crunch at the same time as the CPU does? Am i doing anything wrong?

    Thanks in advance :toast:

    PS: This is the line where BOINC detects the card OpenCL: ATI GPU 0: ATI Radeon Barts PRO Prototype (driver version 1.0, device version OpenCL 1.1, 1024MB, 1024MB available, 885 GFLOPS peak) but when i update ...

    Did you select "allow my GPU to process WUs" in "My projects" on the WCG site?

    Yes i did, i even changed the "Default" profile for my machine from "Maximum Output" to "Custom" at WCG website to mark "yes" on "Use GPU when computer is in use" (which i did previously at BOINC Manager -> Preferences too) and ... nothing, no new tasks available for GPU :banghead:

    Maybe is the server which is not finding any tasks for the projects i have selected? (I have them all though ...)

    Do not forget that changes will not take effect until the client and the servers have communicated with each other (either automatically, e.g. when uploading results; or when hitting the "update" button in the "projects" tab in the client).

    Restarting the rig may help but also there may be an issue with gpu work units and the Mac OS X operating system- I'm not too familiar with WCG running on that OS.

    Will send anything helpful that I find out to you.... if I find something :eek:

    Yes Chevalr1c, i read it, i did it too, also restarting the client but nothing helps ... it's when i click "Update" that i see on the events window that no work for my ATI was found.

    Here's the output:

    Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
    Requesting new tasks for ATI
    Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
    No tasks sent
    No tasks are available for Say No to Schistosoma
    No tasks are available for GO Fight Against Malaria
    No tasks are available for Drug Search for Leishmaniasis
    No tasks are available for The Clean Energy Project - Phase 2
    No tasks are available for Help Fight Childhood Cancer
    No tasks are available for Help Conquer Cancer
    No tasks are available for Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2
    No tasks are available for FightAIDS@Home
    No tasks are available for Computing for Clean Water


    Gonna restart and try, though i'm running MacOS X it's not a real Mac ... but i don't think the card itself or drivers are the problem, cause it works OOB with Graphic Acceleration, it's recognized by the system and i can play Steam (CS:GO, CS:Source) and Diablo III, use DVD player for HD video ... and the BOINC Manager is recognizing it (as well as Folding@Home) but it's not wanting to download/process any WU here.

    Let's try with a reboot. Thanks for the help to both of you! :toast:

    EDIT: Reboot didn't help, same output log :banghead:
