Won't start folding

Postby xXCapAwesomeXx » Tue Apr 07, 2020 7:45 pm

I am having problems with my folding client, I launch FAH Control and it says that my client has a wu and is running/ready but has sat at 0% and 24hrs to complete for the past day and a half. I looked through it and couldn't figure out exactly what was wrong. I was going to try a reinstall but I have a different error that prevents me from uninstalling anything, but that is for a different forum. Any advice is much appreciated.

Here is the Log

It is probably due to 24 cores in one slot. Try to reduce this number, but pay attention to choose a new number such that it is a multiple of 2 or 3. For example instead of 1 slot with 24 cores you could try to run 2 slots with 12 cores each.

The issue is not the 24 cores, but that the WU downloaded s forcing it to run at 20. This problem has been reported to the researcher based on another report involving Project 16417. He is looking into it.

In the meantime, you can try pausing the WU and trying to get it to run at a setting for fewer CPU threads. 18, 16 or 12 should be usable.

Looks like it is working with 12 cores, ill let it run overnight and see what happens in the morning. Thanks so much for the info!

For 3 days I have had the problem that the Nvidia GPU aborts the calculation immediately. The client works on another equivalent computer.

Welcome to the F@H Forum northcup,

Can you please post your log file. Ensure that you have copied the System configuration which is present at the start of the log file (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=26036). Can you also tell us what driver version you have installed on your system?

I solved the problem. Thanks. A kernel update a few days ago has disabled the graphic-driver's Cuda functionality. I just reinstalled the NVIDIA drivers and Folding @ Home is running on the GPU again! Excuse the circumstances
