We need some help trouble shooting affinity issues with PRPClient v4.1.3. Please, if you can help, download the package here (currently only Windows):

http://uwin.mine.nu/PRPNet_files/

After updating the master_prpclient.ini file with your preferences, and running 2-dual-update, you'll need to enter each folder (prpclient-1-gpu and prpclient-2-gpu) and edit each specific prpclient.ini file to set gpuaffinity for each folder.

    // This sets the GPU affinity for CUDA apps on multi-GPU machines. It defaults to
    // -1, which means that the CUDA app can run on a GPU.
    gpuaffinity=

Thanks for your help!

John,
I set of gpuaffinity=1 for both clients.
After the dual start one of them was interrupted when steps count has to appear. The second client continues to run.

John,

I think you need to set "...-1" to "0" and "...-2" to "1" (but only if you have 2 GPUs). If you have just 1 GPU, only use 1 client.

mfbab2,
I set gpuaffinity=0 for prpclient-1-gpu
and gpuaffinity=1 for prpclient-2-gpu
and nothing new happend... prpclient-2-gpu closed after some time of internal thoughtfulness.
I don't found something useful in logs.
genefer.log:

Start test of file 'work_GFN524288.in' - 21:54:28

prpclient.log:
[2011-01-18 21:54:28 Ф(] PRPNet Client application v4.1.4 started [2011-01-18 21:54:28 Ф(] User name x3mEn at email address is renyxadarox@ukr.net [2011-01-18 21:57:53 Ф(] GFN524288: No data in file [genefer.log]. Is genefer broken?

Do you interesting to run 2 WU's on both GPU's simutaniously or what is a goal of test?
Maybe switching on debuglevel=1 will help?

Yes, the goal is to use 2 GPU's to run 1 WU each simultaneously. So far, we've only been able to get 1 GPU to work.

It's strange, but after system reboot and driver update both GPU's have started to work simultaneously.
I don't think that driver update is a cause, I think the problem was with the thing that during my first test boinc cuda jobs were paused and for some reason one of the GPU's wasn't initialized. At least after my first test driver update failed too, so I decided to reboot, after that driver was updated and the new test is successful! Both GPU's work now each with his own WU!
Confirm, works!

It is good practice to "x" out your e-mail when displaying logs. (Edit your Post if you still can.)
