GPU not folding


Recommended Posts

Shows "failed" on F@H control. Log looks like....

How can I clear the gpu folder and let it download a new WU? Running Mint 17.

dickster, in FahControl determine EXACTLY which Work Queue is the GPU, then shut down the client, then go to C:\Users\username (yours)\AppData\Roaming and locate the correct Work Queue (00, 01, 02, etc.) in the Work folder and delete it. (this is for "normal" installation)

to be honest caintry been way to long since i've folded for me to really be of help, things have changed a lot since then, but as far as i remember my work folder was in a hidden folder in /home/terry/folding/ because that was where i'd setup fah.


see if this link helps :- https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=67&t=21564


or maybe a better link :- https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=88&t=25319



Just FYI, there is no GPUs.txt file on my Linux machine either. /var/lib/fahclient contain only the log.txt and the config, cores, logs, work, and .nv folders. But I only CPU fold on the machine in question.

have you been able to locate the work folder? according to one of those links (and caintry) it should be in /var/lib/fahclient


it may be an hidden folder so you'd need to be able to view those by changing the view hidden file option.


then in the work folder just delete the corrisponding file like caintry said. ie. 00, 01, 02 depending on the position of your gpu folding in the client.

In the work folder there is only one folder. That is 00 which is the cpu folding client. There is no folder for the gpu client. In the F@H control panel it shows the gpu as trying to download and then switches to failed.

is there another work folder for the gpu maybe in the /var/lib/fahclient/nv folder?




just had a thought maybe there is no gpu folder yet because of course you said it is stuck trying to download a wu so maybe the 01 (or whatever) gpu folder doesn't actually get created until the gpu has some work to do.


i assume until this last problem wu, it was folding just fine with the gpu so maybe try stopping folding then completely disconnecting the pc from all power and then booting it again will fix any problems.

this will cold boot the gpu and clear any data/driver that may be stuck in it's memory and be causing a problem (which just a reboot wouldn't do.).

Terry, remember I had trouble like that once...Last year when I was running Linux on my rigs I was having the same basic trouble, like this:

dickster make sure you have the Nvidia drivers installed in Mint, in Suse Terry and I had to go in and make certain that the correct ones were installed.

See if that helps bro'.....

i don't think you need the cuda drivers any more caintry if my memory isn't playing me up, pretty sure i read that somewhere so the normal nvidia driver in the repo's should work for linux gpu folding.




I do believe you're correct Terry...I think all I jneeded was the Nvidia stuff...
