1) Message boards : Problems and Help : Getting PRPNet up and running (Message 89661)
Posted 1440 days ago by Profile bayanneProject donor
Can someone help in easy stages how to get this running on my Mac.
I downloaded the PRPNet installation package and then extracted it and placed the folder prpclient-5.4.0-macintel into Applications and I then edited the master_prpclient.ini giving my email, userid, machine id, teamid, set up for 64 bit OS.
I then ran ./genefer in Terminal which asked a variety of options, then ??
What do I do to get this running on a task?

I had a whole load of completed tasks aborted by server even though they were allocated on 2nd August.

Not sure I understand, as they were given after the time of the crash ....

OK, done that, let's see how it goes ...

I had not previously had a ccc_config file set up as was running from default settings.

Could not find any reference to which was device 0 or 1 in the multitude of stderr.txt files

Many thanks for your help

Obviously not keen for BOINC to try and run GeneferCIDA on GT120 so having read the other article what do I need to add into the following entry for cc_config
so as to prevent it trying to do so. I am running Boinc 7.0.31

<cc_config>
<log_flags>
[...]
</log_flags>
<options>
[...]
<exclude_gpu>
<url]http://www.primegrid.com/</url>
<device_num>1</device_num>
<type>nvidia</type>
<app>genefer</app>
</exclude_gpu>
<exclude_gpu>
<url]http://www.primegrid.com/</url>
<device_num>1</device_num>
<type>nvidia</type>
<app>genefer_wr</app>
</exclude_gpu>
[...]
</options>
</cc_config>

For the moment I have turned off the option to get PPS Sieve.

Any other suggestions welcomed ...

Just started a Genefer World record task as my GTX570 arrived today.
Looks as though it will take 127 hours

I still have my GT120 fitted as well, but it does not seem to be picking up any GPU work. I did have to turn off PPS sieve in order to obtain the GFR task. I've now turned this option back on, but it still has not picked any work units.

Can you have 2 gpus running on the same rig at the same time?

I don't intend to overclock, just to use stock speed.

They are available from http://macvidcards.com ....

Will a GTX 570 run Genfer as a GPU on Mac OSX 10.8.2


Yes it should


Good, I'm hoping to invest in one shortly.

Currently running genefer_10848576_181712 is taking about 115 hours
I'll be interested to see how that improves ...

I've been running distributed projects for years upon years, so It's great that I have been able to play some small part in being involved in such a big prime :)

So the Quadro 4000 will run in PrimeGrid. I am restricted on what cards will run on a Mac and I'm trying to balance cost vs performance ....
