  1. Some time ago, I mashed this bash script together to set my nVidia cards to 75% of the default power draw: PERCENT=0.75 for UUID in `nvidia-smi -L |cut -d: -f3 |cut -d\) -f1 |awk '{print $1}'`; do DEFAULT=`nvidia-smi -i $UUID -q -d POWER |grep 'Default Power' |cut -d: -f2 |awk '{print $1}'` MIN=`nvidia-smi -i $UUID -q -d POWER |grep 'Min Power' |cut -d: -f2 |awk '{print $1}'` SET=`echo $DEFAULT $MIN $PERCENT |awk '{printf "%f", ( $1 * $3 < $2 ? $2 : $1 * $3 )}'` nvidia-smi -i $UUID -pl $SET done It can handle any number of cards with varying power limits, as well as automatically
  2. I remember reading somewhere that each nVidia graphics card will take up a CPU core. I do not recall the reason behind it though... top - 16:31:41 up 6 days, 2:36, 1 user, load average: 3.15, 3.23, 3.26 Tasks: 202 total, 4 running, 198 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie %Cpu(s): 0.0 us, 0.1 sy, 37.6 ni, 62.2 id, 0.0 wa, 0.0 hi, 0.0 si, 0.0 st MiB Mem : 7884.5 total, 3702.2 free, 2670.3 used, 1512.0 buff/cache MiB Swap: 0.0 total, 0.0 free, 0.0 used. 4877.3 avail Mem PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 18899 fa
  3. HP's business computers started doing their proprietary 12V power supply in the early 2011's. The same can be said for Dell, although I do not know when they started doing it. These are not the ATX12VO standard, even though the principles are the same.
  4. Zberg's latest weapon to the event. Hope she has high PPD. Congrats!
  5. @Gorgon has a guide over here for getting AMD graphics card folding in Ubuntu. May have to check with him to see how he is doing with Ubuntu 20.04 + AMD 20.40 drivers though. YMMV.
  6. Depending on the errors you get (you can find them in /var/log/foldingathome/log*.txt), you may need to do some extra steps to get these early amdgpu-module-compatible graphics cards folding. I posted my findings in Metallus's guide here: Hope it helps with your card.
  7. Unfortunately, you will never find the password online. The password is meant for you, as a human being, to confirm that you want to import a third party certificate into the system, and not some malware trying to do the same from the OS to bypass the security. I briefly browsed through the project instructions you linked. It seems you will be prompted for a password here: https://github.com/linux-surface/linux-surface/wiki/Secure-Boot when you are doing mokutil under "Manually Enrolling a Public Key" header. If you have installed the modules from the repository, the cert
  8. I am able to get my HD 7750 folding under Linux using the AMDGPU Pro drivers (I have not tested the latest, only up to 20.10). Metallus97's thread over here detailed some instructions, but there are also a few tricks which I have also commented there in order to get my aging card working. Gorgon's thread over here describes instructions for Ubuntu.
  9. Flying to pick up GPUs for folding event counts as essential travel, goshdarnit.
  10. When dealing with the P106s, you will also need to look at the ending as well. According to TechPowerUp, the -090 has the same CUDA cores as a 1050 Ti, while the -100 looks exactly like a 1060, specs-wise. As such, the folding performance would be on par with the respective cards. I do not have a -090 to play with, but I can say that my -100 is doing around 450-500kPPD, even when plugged into a PCIe 1.1 x16 slot.
  11. Are you doing VM (qemu) or CT (lxc)? With the former, you may lose some performance (but I hope not by that much...), while CT gives you close to, if not exactly, bare metal. Because Proxmox is a Debian-based distribution, you can also install the folding client on the host as a comparison.
  12. I finally got my HD 7750 (GCN1) to fold in Manjaro: Force the use of amdgpu module. I blacklisted radeon in my setup, but both Metallus and Xerosss already provided some information on how to get that working using grub / kernel boot parameters, depending on either SI- or CIK-based GPUs. As Metallus said, no opencl-mesa. Uninstall it to prevent the folding client from picking it up. Otherwise, you will get "Bad platformId size" error. With my particular card, I ran into the same issue as @Xerosss: "clCreateCommandQueue (-6)". I was able to fix this with the information from
  13. Many Linux distributions do not look in the current working directory for executable scripts/programs. You will need to make the script executable first (only need to do it once): chmod a+x FAHbabysitter.py then explicitly tell it to run a script from the current directory by prefacing it with "./" : ./FAHbabysitter.py As of v1.4 of the script, it will automatically use Python 3 to run.
