This joke is getting old but what the hell...
lolwindows: reboot || reinstallation || defenestration

The REAL joke is that the above is actually quite a powerful troubleshooting guide for Redmond-based OS-s.

Did posting that make your dingy bigger than the rest of the male population?

The real joke is people like you that keep putting up the same old diatribe.

The Windows 7 rig I am typing this response on right now, has been up for 27 days. The power went out or it would have been up longer. This installation has never had to be reinstalled since I first installed it 1 week prior to the official release date. This Windows 7 computer has never been infested with any malware or virus.

+1. Windows 7 rig has been up for multiple weeks.

Just an update to tell you where the next version is up to. It's currently awaiting proper BFL support on windows, which Luke-jr is fighting with at the moment. While I'm waiting, I've been given access to a 5970 remotely and trying to find some way to massage the fan to work for both GPUs. So far it's been a miserable failure since everything simply shows the devices as discrete devices. Those willing to try a git tarball or build from git, the current tree is quite stable. 79xx GCN support is non-existent as of yet. Here is the changelog so far:

A quick prod would not hurt, but I expect I'll find the same thing. Of course I can only work with linux :s

No problem, I'll see what I can see set up. Do you have a preference in Linux distro? ;-)

I'm running cgminer like this:

Code:
cgminer -c Desktop/p2pool.json

and here is the content of Desktop/p2pool.json:

Code:
{
"pools" : [
{
"url" : "http://127.0.0.1:9332",
"user" : "nouser",
"pass" : "nopass1"
},
{
"url" : "http://arsbitcoin.com:8344",
"user" : "<removed>",
"pass" : "default"
}
],

"kernel" : "phatk",
   "kernel-path" : "/usr/local/bin",
"worksize" : "256",
"vectors" : "2",
"intensity" : "6",

"donation" : "0.5"
}

as you can see I have set the donation amount to 0.5%, yet cgminer still says:

Code:
[2012-01-24 14:28:44] --donation is disabled, please consider just 0.5% :-(

how come? Is the configuration file above not correct? I'm running cgminer 2.1.2.

Well, after much poking and prodding and asking on forums and scouring APIs and lots of ridiculous documents, I can see there is no official way to tell that two GPUs on a dual GPU card belong to the same device. There is nothing shared between the two. However, having access to an actual device I was able to come u p with the following. This has been committed to the git tree:

Detect dual GPU cards via the indirect information of - 1st card has a fan controller. 2nd card does not have a fan controller, cards share the same device name, and are one bus ID apart. Use this information to create paired devices, displaying the fan speed on both devices and using the hottest temperature from either GPU to control the overall fanspeed.

I have confirmed this works on 5970s. Next would be the 6990s...

Now I better get some sleep  Wink

ck,  this could be problematic on windoz machines....  sometimes windows mixes up the order of the gpus. I know windoz is everyone's favorite whipping boy, but it is a necessary evil.

I'm not sure Windows can really be blamed about that. I clearly remember Conman bitching about crazy device enumeration being done in AMD's drivers.
So, no Windows jokes this time.

False positive for picking up twin cards is a problem. False negative is not. Anyway I need access to more hardware to see what else I need to do.

Yaaaaaaaaaaay! i blew a fan totally by my own fault of using cgminers "rapingly powerful fan control"
Time for me to not use that!, xD had my fan running at 100% for three days without knowing it xD Now it turns at 1/5th the RPM.

Lol, Never believed it before, BUT FANS ARE NOT MEANT TO RUN AT 100%!!!!

Hey guys can a fan "break" Out And Into place? All of a sudden the fan is spinning at normal speeds again, And the bearing seems just fine.

Then about 1hr later (while mining), It's slows down like a bitch and overheats till shutdown, I restart, Fan not turning, Give it a little push, and VROOOM proper speed...

Lol.. like wtf...

That's what happens when you run a fan at 100%...

And this is why cgminer peaks autofan at 85% and reserves 100% only for overheat situations.

I've just committed the first patch to the git tree that should enable 79xx cards to work properly under cgminer (delete any dodgy .bins created before this attempt). I have no idea if it performs even remotely well, but in theory at least, it won't behave stupidly as the current version does. If someone does run it, could you please dump the output of -D -T the first time you run it? Also it may be worth starting it with -v 1, and/or experiment with various combinations of -v and -w (default being -v 2 -w 128 if you set nothing).

I tried to test your 79xx patch on the git tree following the instructions in the README but after several hours of trying I was unable to get it to actually build on my windows machine.

But it might help you to know that I've found that using the poclbm kernel, setting vector size to 1 and hard-coding the poclbm kernel's BFI_INT to false gives me ~600MH/s (which is much better than the ~540MH/s v2.1.2 kernel with the same settings).

Further gains can be had by changing the definition of ch() and Ma() in the poclbm kernel to use bitselect() instead of boolean operations. Changing this gets cgminer's Radeon HD 7970 performance up to within 3% of that of Diablominer's  (diablo gives me 670MH/s while cgminer gives 650MH/s @ 1125MHz).

Thanks. The GCN compatible phatk kernel that's in the tree should be even faster than that hardcoded poclbm which is reassuring... assuming it works as planned  Wink Alas building on windows is an absolutely pain in the arse and as I've said before even I can't remember what I installed in the end to get it building  Tongue I'll see if I can build one maybe tomorrow.
