Just to clarify, on linux, we never saw the GPU reordering, correct?

Wrong. Proof by counterexample: 2.2.0 did reorder some of my GPUs.
2.2.1 does not do any reordering unless explicitly asked to, you should be ok if you just skip 2.2.0

Con, git c0e8819 been running fine for 6 hours.
PS. Now we're talking:

Just pulled from git and got ...

 
Code:
./cgminer --auto-gpu --auto-fan --submit-stale --gpu-reorder
[2012-01-30 13:31:10] .: --gpu-reorder: unrecognized option

And still shows 2.2.0 to boot...

On the reorder issue - it definitely impacted one of my linux boxen (have two).  On one box it just swapped the two 5970 gpu's = no big deal.  On the second box it was originally:

Code:
0 - 5850 (hot)
1 - 5970
2 - 5970
3 - 5850 (cold)

After 2.2.0 it became:

Code:
0 - 5850 (cold)
1 - 5850 (hot)
2 - 5970
3 - 5970

So it wouldn't run with the old .conf as the voltage and clocks were gpu 3 (what was a 5850) was now getting passed to the 5970.  I have since re-done all my configs and it is working fine (hence trying the new --gpu-reorder command).

Not to insult you, but did you recompile?  I just pulled and I am showing 2.2.1.

Did you forget autogen?

I'm running c0e8819d and it's running fine, although it did take longer than normal to start.

This is what happens when you try and do things quickly from the office at lunch  Grin

Didn't compile - just did a git pull from p2pool and forgot about building (DUH) the cgminer...

Hmm. I just fired up a new p2pool job (default settings, pretty much, except for talking to bitcoind of course  Roll Eyes ) and then connected cgminer 2.2.1 to it.
Somehow, this doesn't fill me with confidence WRT getting an adequate return from p2pool:

That's normal for p2pool. You get a lot of LP's. My cgminer rejected rate is less than 2% though. If yours is higher there may be an issue. Watch your dead and orphan rate also. They will indicate where any issues are.

Dead+Orphan are zero. Only 2 shares after an hour at 370 Mhash/sec, with a 40% reject rate, doesn't look too great.
Well … as it seems to work for others here, I'll check over at the p2pool thread.

New version: 2.2.1

So I'm really loathe to leaving a version out there that makes people adopt to massive change that may not have been a good idea, only to have to pull it again in the future. Today I had the luxury of my long-lost mining rig returning so I was finally able to actually do some meaningful debugging and testing of the code I was putting into cgminer and came up with the conclusion: 2.2.0 was a stinker. I spent most of today putting out all the spot fires under my feet and to release something a little more respectable as quickly as possible.
[...]

FYI, the crash I reported is gone with the latest updates. Thanks!

thanks for this release ckolivas - 1 BTC Donation Sent!

can you explain more about what the problem was with the gpu reordering by default?

you said "The whole GPU-reorder  saga caused massive damage"

which is a vague and frightening statement - and since i am using it on all five of my rigs I would love to hear the official statement of what exact damage we are talking about..

thanks again !!!! Smiley
And thank you Smiley

Okay so the GPU reorder saga brought up a few issues, lemme explain just for reassurance.

OpenCL and the ATI Display Library have completely different numbers for their devices - and there is no way to correlate the devices

- If they report exactly the same number of devices, and ADL was working properly (built in etc) then the last release worked fine.
- However OpenCL will report more devices than ADL if you have more than one display connected to one GPU.
- OpenCL will report less devices than ADL if you have a card that has no mining support.
- ADL will report only one device if you don't export DISPLAY on linux, or if you use some remote viewer on windows (I think).

On 2.2.0:
If you had less ADL devices than OpenCL, only the ADL devices would work, but the devices that worked on 2.2.0 would be different to the ones working on 2.1.2 because of the changed order.
->If you had less ADL devices, it would put all the mining threads on the one device.
If you had more ADL devices than OpenCL, hardware monitoring wouldn't work.
->If hardware monitoring didn't work, you often couldn't mine at all/crash whatnot.
On Linux the ordering was almost never out of order (unlike windows) but it was reversed. However it was not universally reversed...

On 2.2.1: Now I can cope with discrepancies in the number of devices and still have the option of trying to reorder by bus ID. So it's quite a safe option now, whereas previously it worked more often than not, but when it didn't work it would do weird and wonderful things.

It was getting impossible to debug this without a real mining rig and it was just fortuitous that my rig came back to me yesterday.

All in all, I was just dealing with more AMD facepalm...

This is tricky. It's very hard rolling back on such a big change. However I do think it was not the best idea to do it by default and the release has only been out one day. I suspect going to 2.2.0 will break far more people's configurations than going from 2.2.0 to 2.2.1, and then using the --gpu-reorder option will fix it (which is what I decided to call it). So, sorry, I've pretty much decided to make it default to off.

I am sorry to hear that but I understand.

BTW.  I have an interesting error.  Because of BSOD when trying to update my drivers I reinstalled windows.  I installed 11.12 but not SDK.  Then installed SDK 2.5 from driver version 11.7.

2.1.12 works flawlessly.  No reduction in hashrate, and no CPU bug.

2.2.0 bombs out when starting w/ error (and yes I should have quoted it exactly Smiley ) about OpenCL compiled 0 byte binary.  It then loads the display w/ all cards listed as "off" and then promptly hard faults (Windows: cgminer.exe has encountered an error and will be closed).

Haven't done any investigating because 2.1.12 works fine and after upgrading my entire Linux farm to BAMT (working flawless w/ cgminer now BTW) and reinstalling windows I am done with upgrades for a few days. Smiley

Did you try other versions of the 2.5 SDK, aside from 11.7? Any performance differences?

I just did a quick review of SDK versions from driver 11.6 to 12.1 and this is what I got:
(In bold are the highest minors for each major version)

SDK2.4 - SDK 2.4.595.10
11.6     - SDK 2.4.650.9
11.7     - SDK 2.5.684.213
SDK2.5 - SDK 2.5.684.213
11.8     - SDK 2.5.709.2
11.9     - SDK 2.5.732.1
11.10   - SDK 2.5.775.2
11.11   - SDK 2.5.793.1
SDK2.6 - SDK 2.6.831.4
11.12   - SDK 2.6 (10.0.831.4)
12.1     - SDK 2.6 (10.0.851.4)

I'm currently on 11.6 (driver & sdk 2.4.650.9) with 2x5850's but I think I'll try 12.1 with SDK 2.5.793.1 from the 11.11 driver to see how it goes!

Cheers!
