EVERYTHING IS WORKING NOW.

Thank you all for your support. The tools, suggestions, and other recommended forums all ultimately led me to getting it all working properly.

Regards,

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GAMING 8GB with Blower Fan

clinfo says number of platforms 0

That explains something I suppose, but not clear what to do about it.

Thank you for your assistance.

boinc-client rejects the --headless option.

I installed ocl-icd-libopencl1

Primegrid still does not see the GPU.

Add headless to the install command? As in...

sudo apt-get install ocl-icd-libopencl1 --headless?

Or maybe to the boinc-client start?

Running ubuntu 18.04, in server config. GPU card appears to be working, with correct drivers. I'm running boinc-client as an app (not as a service -- which would disallow GPU as per https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_BOINC), but GPU is not showing in https://www.primegrid.com/hosts_user.php info.

New to Linux / ubuntu, would appreciate any suggestions.

i did detach from primegrid directly, now only attached via BAM. And, it's only running genefer 18 tasks, so things might be better. I'll let you know in a bit.

Thank you, Reggie.

First, thank you for the thoughtful reply.

Using --get_simple_gui_info, i see two connects to primegrid. One via account manager, the other not. I believe the account manager connection is newer, and it seems to reflect recent setting changes in BAM (resource share at 100%). Also shows 475 jobs succeeded.

The second does NOT use account manager. Jobs succeeded: 435, and two jobs failed.

A separate problem, about 4 days ago, is that the LLR tasks were running on all processors, not paying attention to max thread 1 (as per primegrid preferences). So I aborted them all, restarted, and the genefer 18 tasks started up on as many CPUs as I allowed. (Responds to change.)

I still see some LLR tasks occasionally, which i don't understand. I have them all turned off in primegrid prefs. So I suspect you are correct. How do I clear the second connection?

BAM (https://www.boincstats.com/bam/hosts/) shows 49,380 credit yesterday. Doesn't specify RAC or otherwise. Should be very much hither. 500k perhaps. I don't see an explanation of credit vs RAC credit - can you explain?

boinccmd --acct_mgr info does show a connection, and BAM does indicate daily connections. Also, boinccmd --acct_mgr sync shows no errors, and the BAM timestamp updates properly.

So, I think i need to kill the second non-BAM primegrid link. No idea how to do that. Maybe boinccmd --project https://primegrid.com detach, and then make sure BAM still going?

Thank you so much for your reply. Greatly appreciate.

Right. They don't visit the forums. I think they just give up. I could be wrong on that -- i have no inside info. Thanks for the reply. Worth discussing more, I think.

I suspect it would get used more (good for everyone) if it were easier. Have there been any studies around that? FWIW, I have problems on my Windows machine too, using the GUI, but it's so hard to get help, I just leave it as-is. And I don't give up, because I want to help primegrid.

I also think that these numerous small problems MUST be limiting the use of BOINC by everyday non-technical people. I'm sure 1000s of folks just give up. I'm not ready to give up. But I do want real help. A 3 minute phone call, or a steady back-forth chat goes a long way.
