I tried to make my R9 290X run on this project with an app_info, but it won't ... I used an app_info based on one for a 79xx card I found on this forum, but it doesn't work at all.

I get work, but it won't start with this error :

20/04/2014 23:21:03 | Moo! Wrapper | [error] Missing coprocessor for task dnetc_r72_1398013104_2_32_0; aborting


I get the error before it even start to download the WU :(

For reference, here is the app_info I use :

<app_info>
<app>
<name>dnetc</name>
<user_friendly_name>Distributed.net Client</user_friendly_name>
</app>

<file_info>

</file_ref>
<coproc>
<type>ATI</type>
<count>1</count>
</coproc>
</app_version>
</app_info>


It would be a good idea to add OpenCL support to this project to make thing much easier for cruncher since Distributed.net has been providing an official OpenCL client for more than 6 month ...

Any idea to make my card work until we hear some news from the dev of this project ?

Have you tried it without an app_info file at all?

Probably won't work....my R9 280x will download the WUs, but will error out on all of them....the openCL app will need to be installed by the project AFAIK...

BTW, the openCL app runs fine on the R9 280x when used with the original distributed.net client..

mikey> of course, and if it had worked, I wouldn't bother with an app_info !

John> yeah, same for me, the distributed.net client runs fine on the card, it's just Moo that doesn't like the card :(

I was just starting at the beginning covering all the bases...have you tried installing this yet?

and the link to download the amd app stuff is here:
http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/heterogeneous-computing/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/

It made the new R series gpu's work at Collatz and PrimeGrid. The new R series gpu's have something disabled, I always forget exactly what, but it isn't needed in gaming just some crunching units. The link above provides a 'fix' so the gpu can crunch the units again.

I have that installed....they took out the stream capabilities in the driver...have a look at a WU of mine that failed...

mikey> The SDK has been useless for years now since AMD APP drivers are included in Catalyst packages.

Colltaz runs fine on this GPU without any special trick, and I've been able to run PrimeGrid (PPS Sieve, GFN and GFN WR) and MilkyWay with the use of an app_info ...

John> in your situation, the problem is different : you have been able to start the client ! You should be able to run without issues by replacing your dnetc518-win32-x86-stream.exe file by the dnetc.exe (OpenCL version) included in this package : http://http.distributed.net/pub/dcti/current-client/dnetc-win32-x86-opencl.zip

You can use my app_info file to use it. You'll have to edit the job-ati14-1.00.xml file with the following data assuming you keep the dnetc.exe file name :

<job_desc>
 <task>
  <application>dnetc.exe</application>
  <checkpoint_filename>chkpoint</checkpoint_filename>
  <command_line>-ini dnetc.ini -runoffline -multiok=1</command_line>
 </task>
</job_desc>


This is the method for HD79xx that I used for my try on my R9 290X ...

Unfortunately, all these tricks doen't work on the R9 290X :'(

Running smoothly as of now...only getting the tiny WUs, so will have to wait till I get the big ones....

Glad it worked for you ...

But it's too bad that no one cares about the Hawaii GPUs :(

I'm still around but I'm just not working on Moo! Wrapper as much it needs or deserves. :( I still keep it running behind the scenes and slowly working through the various improvements that are piling up.

Currently most important thing for me is to migrate to a different host that's cheaper but has more modern hardware running on a newer OS version. Not to mention new host is closer to the database server is the two can communication more rapidly.

Since the server move is over, can we get our OpenCL application for modern ATI GPUs ?

Yes, we can and that's what I've been working for past couple of weeks. I just deployed beta version of OpenCL for ATI app. You need to opt in for beta apps in your preferences if you want to test it.
