Problem with PCI Riser

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.

Problem with PCI Riser

Postby doctorzaius » Sun Jun 07, 2020 7:48 pm

My computer for folding has two RTX 2070s and runs Ubuntu (20.04) and works great. I'd like to move one of the GPUs to a 1x-16x riser, mostly to reduce heat and noise. I've tried to to that and it looks like linux sees the card. In particular, the nvidia application is able to report stats about that card (e.g., temperature, fan speed, etc.). But FAH can't add it as a GPU. Where does one even start to trouble shoot this?

I'm not entirely sure why it started working. However, I think that removing the GPU (from the client configuration) and then adding it back after switching to the riser was the likely cure. In the first instance, I'm pretty sure I had not removed the GPU.
