fah22 on ubuntu not showing in fahcontrol

Postby aandrei » Tue Jan 11, 2022 5:41 am


i am on ubuntu 20.04 and i just installed the snap version of fahclient and fahcontrol. there is no mention of gpu folding in the fahcontrol (folding slots and work queue), but i did try to turn it on by adding a gpu slot. nothing happened. syslog shows it sees nvidia gpu, slot 0, configuration panel, shows no mention of the gpu. i try add slot 0 gpu nothing happens in configure panel.

actual log shows only core 0xa8 (fahcore_a8) running. no mention of starting gpu work. however in my process browser, top, i see fahcore_22 running using a whole processor, in other application showing gpu status i see gpu is running 100 percent load. so fahcore22 is running and it's loaded up the gpu with work, but i don't see credit for it in the control application, and i don't see it there to be able to control it or turn it on or off.

why is this happening? will the work unit complete and upload anyways? will i get credit or am i just burning electricity for fun here? (currently anonymous mode, don't care about the credit, but would like to know if it completed the unit correctly and sent it off)

Sounds to me like there might be two FAHClients installed running at the same time.
Can you please post the first part of your log, especially the one which shows your system configuration and GPU list. You might need to restart FAH to get this part of the log because it's not shown at the start of a Work Unit. Instructions here: viewtopic.php?p=327413&f=24#p327413

Might also be a good idea to run
Code: Select all
ps aux|grep fah

and show the output of that here in "CODE" tags.
e.g. this is what is output on my machine:
