Hi
Has the missing lib on Linux problem been solved?

That should be included in the app now.

Lots of tasks failing asking for glibc 2.29 with driver 470 on 18.04

you must update glibc

You must send the correct version.

CUDA 100 version works but the server sends 99.6% CUDA111. 2 out of 560. Those 2 completed just fine with Ubuntu 18 and driver 470.

This is the plan_class spec file. With all these driver/cuda versions a bit tricky, see https://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/forum_thread.php?id=6&postid=5765

The best thing is to build an app_config file to avoid the switch and only getting cuda10 apps.

Possible solution for glibc 2.29 errors on linux...

<app_config> <app> <name>TF</name> <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent> <gpu_versions> <cpu_usage>0.1</cpu_usage> </gpu_versions> <app_version> <app_name>cuda100</app_name> </app_version>] </app> </app_config>


Before setup, finish all your current work! This file is only for running cuda10 GPU apps without updating glibc for linux (glibc 2.29 error)

1. create an app_config.xml file with this content in the srbase project folder
2. restart BOINC
3. You should only getting cuda10 apps for TF, check the FAQ if you match the driver rules with cuda10 toolkit.

I cannot test it, need of course some tweaking or changes. Let me know if you can run it or not.

Message 7997 - Posted: 12 Nov 2021, 6:26:20 UTC - in response to Message 7994.

app_config.xml only overrides settings for the specified app names and plan classes, it does not prevent the client from getting tasks for different app names or plan classes.

The only "clean" way to force a specific plan class would be an app_info.xml. However, anonymous platform is not allowed on this project, so this won't work either.

That leaves only one very ugly and potentially dangerous workaround if glibc cannot be updated: Replace the cuda111 binary with a copy of the cuda100 binary and tell BOINC not to check the file size when starting a task (i.e., set <dont_check_file_sizes>1</dont_check_file_sizes> in the options part of cc_config.xml).

We have got done 5 times more work than before during the challenge. This took normally 4 month.

Many thanks to all who have participated!
