Message 111040 - Posted: 13 Feb 2023, 11:14:57 UTC

Dear all,

I have a new computer dedicated to BOINC, featuring an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU and an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPU.

I'm getting good results with projects like Universe@Home and Asteroids@Home on the CPU front, but so far I've been unable to get the GPU to work with BOINC.

The computer is running Ubuntu 22.04 LTS x86_64, and I followed the official procedure to install the AMD drivers:

https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

I tried two GPU projects: Einstein@Home and Milkyway@Home, and both failed in similar ways:

Error at Einstein@Home: https://einsteinathome.org/fr/task/1423890400
Error at Milkyway@Home: https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=685395746

I believe the drivers are correctly installed, at least "clinfo" is working just fine.

I know BOINC complains about the lack of memory in the logs but this is nonsense IMHO: the GPU has 24GB or RAM, and the host itself has over 10GB of RAM available, out of 16GB.

What am I doing wrong ?

Should I report a bug over at AMD, as per https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install-bugrep.html ?

Thank you all in advance for your help :)

Best regards,

Samuel

I find the use of BOINC 7.18.1 the most suspect issue. This release was NEVER intended for x86 architectures. The 7.18.1 release was intended ONLY for Android.

The issue is that the distro maintainers grabbed the wrong branch to include in their distros. And never have fixed the issue even though they have been informed of the problem from multiple sources.

I highly recommend changing to the latest 7.20.5 BOINC release for Linux at the Costamagna PPA. https://launchpad.net/~costamagnagianfranco/+archive/ubuntu/boinc

Dear Keith,

I upgraded BOINC to 7.20.5 as you told me to and tried to run some Einstein@Home jobs on the GPU.

No luck so far: https://einsteinathome.org/fr/task/1428468904

What am I doing wrong ?

Best regards,

Samuel

Thank you @Jord for copying the error output to this thread :)

There are two platforms showing in "clinfo": I believe they are the Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPU and the embedded GPU part on board the Ryzen 9 7950X, right ?

https://www.amd.com/en/products/graphics/amd-radeon-rx-7900xtx
https://www.amd.com/en/product/12151

One thing I find odd in the "clinfo" output: "max compute units" is half what it should be, i.e 48 vs. 96 CU on the GPU, and 1 vs. 2 on the CPU:

For the GPU it says it has 2 devices, so if each device takes 48 compute units, that's also 96.

Anyway, your OpenCL is ROCr, and I am not sure that it is supported by the projects. One OpenCL (ROCr) isn't the same as the next OpenCL (ROCm), especially on Linux.

ROCm/ROCr isn't for usual users, it seems developped for specific industrial usages, it does not support graphical applications (AMD said it's temporary but that can last for a long time) and only supports a very small amount of hardware : a tiny selection of PCIe graphics cards and no one integrated graphics solution from AMD APUs. Currently only three chips are said to be supported by ROCm.
Source.
Hardware support is spotty: Hardware and Software Support.

Have you tried instead these drivers? https://www.amd.com/en/support/linux-drivers

This is where I downloaded the drivers: https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/amd-radeon-rx-7000-series/amd-radeon-rx-7900-series/amd-radeon-rx-7900xtx

I followed these instructions: https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

There are two OpenCL implementations available: ROCr and "legacy": https://amdgpu-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/install-script.html#specifying-an-opencl-implementation

Should I give the "legacy" one a try ?

I just installed both OpenCL implementations (ROCr and legacy), still no luck:

How could I be sure which implementation is used ?

Dear all,

Problem solved :)

https://einsteinathome.org/fr/content/cant-get-amd-radeon-rx-7900-xtx-crunch-einsteinhome-ubuntu-2204-lts

I had to install the full ROCm package (https://docs.amd.com/bundle/ROCm-Installation-Guide-v5.4.3/page/How_to_Install_ROCm.html) and edit /usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client.service:

#ProtectSystem=strict
ProtectSystem=off


Milkyway@Home GPU tasks still refuse to run though, but it appears to be a well known issue:

Best regards,
