Just rejoined LHC as I saw it has AMD GPU work available. But I'm not getting any. Is this normal?

There is not any GPU for this project. BOINC just requests it?

So why is it listed here with the AMD logo?

P.S. I'm not getting email notifications for these replies, please someone fix it. [edit] sorted. A strange default of no emails was set in my account.

I don't know the answer to that, but three of the icons are wrong -- as far as I know we don't support Android, we don't support BSD and we don't support AMD GPUs.

Oh well, I'm here now, might aswell use my 10 CPU cores for it.

Could you let whoever's in charge know the icons are incorrect?

Sixtrack runs on android, i.e. 32/64 bit arm/linux, and each BSD variant. NetBSD and OpenBSD needs a little tweaking though :)

We also have ppc64/linux, but I don't think there is an icon for that.
If there is a fortran compiler for a platform, we can build for it.

I take it that GPUs are incapable of your tasks?

I stand corrected.

Hmm, I've got a Jetson running Ubuntu... :-)

The icons are correct in Boinc for LHC there is:

Windows
Mac
Linux
BSD
Android
VirtualBox

There isn't AMD logo, just the BSD one looks like AMD.

I emailed david to correct web page.

They're correct now, but I assure you there WAS an AMD logo, which has since been removed.

In the LHCatHome preferences (Home, School and Work) is a Flag for ATI-GPU's?

I could probably work it out, but I'd rather one of the on-site team did it -- less chance of treading on someone's toes and/or screwing it up. :-)
