    is what I get after i pasted it within the options flags

    A GPU exclusion in your cc_config.xml file refers to an unknown application 'mini_collatz'. Known applications: 'solo_collatz', 'large_collatz'

    is this a server side thing, did i configure it wrong, do i need to manually download the other applications? Actually I just did that, downloaded the following to the collatz application directory
    Your cc_config is quite a read! Within the Options tag is correct, now make sure Mini Collatz is selected in your project settings along with the applicable Plan Classes http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz...subset=project

    The apps will download on their own when you get work. If they don't, you may try a project reset.

    Re: Different apps for different GPUs

    I have no idea why my cc_config is like that...i've never edited directly. What should it look like?

    Well if it's placed in the cc_config correctly and i have mini selected in preferences and i've also manually downloaded the apps, just wondering why im getting the notice and why only solo and large are listed, not mini and micro as well.

    Re: Different apps for different GPUs

    Old thread, but I'll restart it. My problem is a little different. I have one computer that has 1-nv gpu and 3-ati gpus. If I set preferences to accept both types of work I get NV only. The only way I get any ATI work is too load up on nv, then turn it off in the preferences. As the nv work completes I get ATI to replace it. When I get to 150 ATI wus and 50 nv wus I turn both back on in the preferences and the nv only start coming in again. Repeat... Surely there is a better solution than having to babysit this computer. Ideas? Anyone?

    Can you post some lines from your event log? What version of BOINC are you using? Might tell of if it's a BOINC issue or a Collatz issue. I haven't run mixed NV/AMD in a while, but I remember getting work for both without a problem.

    Re: Different apps for different GPUs

    Back in the old days when I ran GPUs that was always a problem in mixed systems when running the same project. Back then the only solution was what you are doing. I found it easier to run 2 different project with the GPUs so that I didn't have to babysit the computers.

    Things may have changed ... then again they may be the same. I believe the problem was with the BOINC scheduler not asking for the correct type of WU.

    Well, I still have this problem, but it will soon be resolved. I have only 25 million to go (about 5 days) to reach my billion on Collatz and at that point, I'm done...problem solved. Unfortunately there is no badge upgrade for 1 billion (WTF Slicker )and I'd need to add another billion (2 billion) to upgrade. Not sure I'd live that long with my hardware.
