Hi,

I have 3 GPUs in total installed on one of my systems...

-Nvidia 8500gt
-Nvidia Tesla M2090
-Nvidia GTX 680

I know about the whole CC config and such, however I would like to set it where the 8500gt is NOT used (due to lack of CUDA) but ONLY use the tesla and the gtx..

Is this possible?

Thank you

hi,

Thanks for the help, could you elaborate a little more? where would the placement of this command go? I'm pretty new at Boinc, so forgive my ignorance.

thank you

<cc_config>

</options>

</cc_config>

If the Nvidia 8500gt is not device 1 than change with 2 or 3.

Careful, there is an extra line in there, highlighted in red above, which might make the cc_config fail.

The device numbers are reported by BOINC in Event Log when BOINC starts.
