Yeah, I can't find a changelog either.


Still can't find a changelog, but I finally decided to try it out. xxx.29 revision seems to resolve all the driver issues I had.

I think the regression is specific to multi-fermi set ups.

gpugrid is 64 bit only on Linux. Time to upgrade anyways. 64 bit is where its at.

All I can say is that there appears to be a regression in the 256.25 driver that is causing instability on multi gpu set ups.

Its odd that you are completing some and not others.

which version of the nvidia driver are you using? Is your cpu over-clocked?

64 bit only. Time to upgrade anyways, 64 bit Linux is plenty mature, literally been using it for years now.

I'm currently running ubuntu 10.04. I've tried just about ever distro over the 12 years or so I've used Linux, but ubuntu has been my favorite cause its just so damn easy to use.

As far as errors go, I almost never saw an error with with my gtx295, so far the 470s have been been pretty hassle free aside from some driver issues I'm currently fighting. My GTS 250 in the htpc however loves to throw errors.

Is there any reason why I would not want to use a dual core processor with a machine housing 3 gt240s?

Planning on using a dual core i3 with 3 gt 240s and 64 bit Linux.
Will I see a major performance hit over using a quad core?

That will depend if your going to be crunching any CPU projects at the same time as GPUGRID but overall it will be fine. Make sure you have enough RAM 4GB recommended.



Was planning to use this machine solely for crunching gpu tasks. Any spare cpu cycles will be for serving up video files across the network to my htpc.
