GTX285 not folding

Postby robby659 » Mon Dec 01, 2014 8:07 pm

I've just set up my old rig to start folding again.
The CPU (C2Q Q9550) is folding fine at approx 9300ppd
But my GPU isn't doing anything. Its an Nvidia GeForce GTX 285.
It's been hanging on the "Ready" status for 3 days now. All i get in the Log is:
Code: Select all
19:59:47:WU01:FS01:Connecting to
19:59:48:WARNING:WU01:FS01:Failed to get assignment from '': Empty work server assignment
19:59:48:WU01:FS01:Connecting to
19:59:49:WARNING:WU01:FS01:Failed to get assignment from '': Empty work server assignment
19:59:49:ERROR:WU01:FS01:Exception: Could not get an assignment

A solution would be great!

Same issue here.
FAHControl reported slot GeForce GTY 285 and the GPUs,txt contained the same entry. So, it is valid.
Well, but not abe to get work unit.
CPU is folding OK, no issue there.
So, what is wrong?

Simply put - EOL for FAHCore_11:

FahCore_11 has reached end of life
September 12, 2014 by Vijay Pande
FahCore_11 WUs have been out of supply for some time now. We have been working to see if there are scientific problems which would be well suited by this core, but the science has moved on (FahCore_11 is very, very old and does not support key new advances) and, as mentioned earlier, it is time to retire FahCore_11.

It’s worth mentioning that FAH GPU cores have evolved dramatically in the time since FahCore_11 came out, with Core15 being a major workhorse and Core17 (built on OpenMM) being in major release, and with new cores Core18 (with an updated version of OpenMM) and Core19 (with an updated backend infrastructure) in testing. We’re looking for a lot of exciting new results with these new cores.
