[SOLVED] Folding with NVidia CUDA on Gentoo

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

[SOLVED] Folding with NVidia CUDA on Gentoo

Postby jzroth » Mon Mar 23, 2020 8:39 am

Hi, fairly new folder here. I'm running folding@home on Gentoo, and I'm having trouble getting it to recognize my Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti. I'm able to run folding@home with just the CPU just fine - it will start up, receive work units, and solve them. Now I'm trying to do GPU computing as well, so I emerged dev-util/nvidia-cuda-toolkit and dev-util/nvidia-cuda-sdk with the opencl use flag, then rebuilt sci-biology/foldingathome. I can do

Code: Select all
eselect opencl list
and see that the nvidia implementation of opencl is infact selected.

However, after running
Code: Select all
./FAHClient --configure
and saying yes to GPU, I see this on starting up FAHClient:

Code: Select all
./FAHClient: /opt/foldingathome/libssl.so.10: no version information available (required by ./FAHClient)
./FAHClient: /opt/foldingathome/libcrypto.so.10: no version information available (required by ./FAHClient)
./FAHClient: /opt/foldingathome/libcrypto.so.10: no version information available (required by ./FAHClient)

For some reason it's not detecting OpenCL or CUDA, and it's telling me I may have to update my graphics drivers (they're at the latest version). Does anyone here know what I need to install/configure so folding@home can start doing GPU computing?

You could try to hunt down the problem with glxinfo https://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/glxinfo/ Somehow it looks like the graphic driver is not installed.

On Ubuntu and other Linux distros, it's often necessary to install the OpenCL headers and libraries if you don't install the proprietary drivers. For me, installing ocl-icd-opencl-dev worked like a charm.

It's not clear to me than installing the CUDA toolkit and SDK would get you those headers and libs, so that's my best guess.

I believe you have to install the proprietary drivers. Doing so while X is running is likely to clobber your GUI. Find a Ubuntu supported package for the NVidia proprietary drivers.

Proprietary drivers are already installed and running (I have "NVIDIA corporation" as my glx vendor string). Also, Gentoo installs the headers for every package automatically (it has to, because it's a source based distro).

Just a thought (I'm a loud thinker excuse me) when I had problems getting darktable to use the GPU I had to rebuild the kernel then install the Nvidia driver again. I've rebooted and darktable pretended the problem wasn't there to begin with.

With that sorted I could start folding at once.

Regards.

I'm seeing something similar here and would love to find a solution. Can you show me what you have for these lines in clinfo, as I think they indicate where the problem is:

Code: Select all
# clinfo
Number of platforms                               1
  Platform Name                                   NVIDIA CUDA
  Platform Vendor                                 NVIDIA Corporation
  Platform Version                                OpenCL 1.2 CUDA 10.2.141
  Platform Profile                                FULL_PROFILE
...
NULL platform behavior
  clGetPlatformInfo(NULL, CL_PLATFORM_NAME, ...)  No platform
  clGetDeviceIDs(NULL, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_ALL, ...)   Success [NV]
  clCreateContext(NULL, ...) [default]            Success [NV]


Specifically the
clGetPlatformInfo(NULL, CL_PLATFORM_NAME, ...) No platform
seems wrong.

Thanks.

Re: Gentoo: Neither CUDA nor OpenCL detected despite install

Postby dbosso » Wed Mar 25, 2020 3:07 pm

I don't think it means anything, but I think I just solved the issue on my system.

After some more searching and reading I found this helpful page: https://www.darktable.org/usermanual/en ... ystem.html

Then I noticed:
Code: Select all
# ls -l /dev/nvidia*
crw-rw---- 1 root video 195,   0 Mar 24 09:49 /dev/nvidia0
crw-rw---- 1 root video 195, 255 Mar 24 09:49 /dev/nvidiactl
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root  244,   0 Mar 24 09:49 /dev/nvidia-uvm
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root  244,   1 Mar 24 09:49 /dev/nvidia-uvm-tools


I added the foldingathome user to the video group and that fixed the problem for me.

Hopefully this helps!

Seems to have worked for me too! It's detecting CUDA and OpenCL now.
I won't be able to be sure it works till there's work units available again, though.

That looks like it was a different issue - mine was just that I needed to add user "foldingathome" to group "video" in order to detect the CUDA and OpenCL devices on startup.

However, upon solving that problem I've encountered a new one. When FoldingAtHome manages to download work units for my GPU, I get this:

It keeps failing to start computing on the GPU with 'ERROR:exception: There is no registered Platform called "OpenCL"'. So, looks like I haven't completely solved it yet.

Re: Gentoo: Neither CUDA nor OpenCL detected despite install

I believe you need the uvm USE flag for the nvidia driver for OpenCL to work with FAH.

Code: Select all
Installed versions:  440.64(0/440) (X acpi driver kms libglvnd tools uvm -compat -gtk3 -multilib -static-libs -wayland ABI_MIPS="-n32 -n64 -o32" ABI_RISCV="-lp64 -lp64d" ABI_S390="-32 -64" ABI_X86="32 64 -x32" KERNEL="linux -FreeBSD")


That along with having foldingathome in the video group got everything working for me today.
There's also:

Code: Select all
<config>
  <!-- Slot Control -->
  <power v='MEDIUM'/>

  <!-- User Information -->
  <passkey v='APASSKEY'/>
  <team v='TEAMNUMBER'/>
  <user v='Ninpo'/>

  <!-- Folding Slots -->
  <slot id='0' type='CPU'/>
  <slot id='1' type='GPU'>
    <paused v='true'/>
  </slot>
</config>


In my config file currently (GPU is currently paused as my desktop is unusable when folding with it, but it does work)

OK, I've managed to get it working. Here's everything I did:

1. Uninstall sci-biology/foldingathome
2. delete the /opt/foldingathome directory
3. Emerge nvidia-drivers with these USE flags:
Code: Select all
+X
+abi_x86_32
+acpi
+driver
+kms
+libglvnd
+multilib
+static-libs
+tools
+uvm

3. Emerge nvidia-cuda-sdk with these USE flags:
Code: Select all
+cuda
+doc
+examples
+mpi
+opencl

4. Emerge nvidia-cuda-toolkit (I'm not sure if this is actually necessary but I did)
5. Verify that
Code: Select all
eselect opencl list
shows the nvidia implementation is selected
6. Reboot the computer
7. Emerge sci-biology/foldingathome
8. Add user foldingathome to video group with
Code: Select all
usermod -aG video foldingathome

9. cd to the /opt/foldingathome directory
10. Run config with
Code: Select all
sudo -u foldingathome ./FAHClient --configure
, choose to use GPU
11. Run foldingathome with
Code: Select all
sudo -u foldingathome ./FAHClient


Now it's folding on my GTX 750 Ti on Gentoo!
