Hey tinca,

I'm doing the very same, had the very same problems, got my gpu folding by sudo apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev, from foldingforum.

I find it kinda strange that I'm all excited to play with Mint 19 and then end up setting it up exactly like my 18.3.

By the way, congratulations to Citizen229, powerwagon75 and mr_raider for breaking the 100 million mark!

Hi greerd.

thanks for the info.

I will finish this unit and shut down and restart Mint19 and make the changes.

Your right, it is great to see the team still going up. Congratulations to everybody.

Hi greerd,

that fixed it. Thank you for the help

Folding appears to be running 3 degrees C hotter and the TPF has gone down from 2 minutes 19 to 2 minutes 15.

best regards keith

p.s. I am hoping that our new top folder "battlenut" drops by and lets us know what he is folding with, curiousity.

Yea, it won't take him very long to ketchup :lol:

I finally had to update my nvidia driver from my trusty old 370 to 396.24, don't like it, looks slower so far.
Are you getting WARNING:FS01:Size of positions 2584 does not match topology 2582 in your logs? I'm getting a bunch of them.

I am running driver 390, which is the one that is offered. It appears to be slightly faster than on the Mint18 install. That could be down to the fact that Mint19 is now on a SSD.

I am NOT seeing any errors, it all looks to be running OK.

Have you guys tried to manual install the 370/384 drivers on 19 yet?

Not yet, I'll at least give the 396 a chance, I did a quick Nvidia search and the oldest listed is 375.82 so my 370 isn't available afaik. I don't know how vulnerable the old drivers were to meltdown (how could a video driver be vulnerable?) but what was it, 389 that was suppose to mitigate it?

It seems to me that my ppd started dropping around the time battlenut started, not sure why, almost like teams only get so many juicy wu's.

greerd,

like you, my points per day started to decline, but that was about a month ago, long before "battlenut" joined the team.

The whole computer had started to slow down and was most noticeable when opening a web browser like Firefox. I noticed that more and more doing anything else on the computer made more impact on the folding.

I was not too worried about it as I had just purchased a ssd and was going to install Mint19 as soon as possible.

Everything on Mint19 mate has gone well, but folding drops if I carry out any anything else on the computer. I never noticed the impact months ago. Probably fading memory?

Are you set to medium folding power?

The WU with longer TPF are more GPU intensive. I really took a hit going from 40 inch 1080p to 55 inch 4k. If i set my reso to 4k the tv will turn off as it loses signal from GPU. If i leave it at 1080 I can watch movies in windowed mode. I have been in these intensive WU's for weeks now. I wonder if core21 is running out of WU's. if these WU's are slowing you down a bit try lowering your resolution at bit.

Citizen229

folding has been set to maximum for as long as I can remember, but I have just set it back to medium and it certainly makes a difference to the responsiveness of the computer.

I will be glad to see the back of Project 11713 as I seem to have been exclusively on this project for ever.
