To be clear, nvidia users need to enable both foldingathome.service and foldingathome-nvidia.service.

@katt Same problem as me. Only way i was able to solve it till now was to let the client run as root. Otherwise it wasn't able to create the necessary device and access cuda.

@alucryd I added /dev/nvidia0 and /dev/nvidiactl (the others dont exist) and still didnt work. Here's the output of that command though:


17:50:38:       CUDA: Not detected: cuInit() returned 999
17:50:38:     OpenCL: Not detected: clGetPlatformIDs() returned -1001

You can also try installing clinfo and run sudo -u fah clinfo. Might give us some insight.

@katt What is the output for the cuda and opencl device in the log?

alucryd commented on 2020-04-17 17:39

@katt: If that still doesn't work, you may also try the following devices:

/dev/nvidia0 /dev/nvidiactl /dev/nvidia-uvm /dev/nvidia-uvm-tools

You can add as many ReadWritePaths lines as you want, they stack up.

@jpkotta: Thanks, will switch to the newer syntax.

@katt: Can you try adding ReadWritePaths=/dev/dri to the systemd service file, on top of the SupplementaryGroups stanza?

katt commented on 2020-04-17 17:31

@jpkotta Adding SupplementaryGroups=video did not help unfortunely.

Still getting this: 17:30:16:ERROR:WU00:FS01:Failed to start core: OpenCL device matching slot 1 not found, make sure the OpenCL driver is installed or try setting 'opencl-index' manually

Yes, opencl-nvidia is installed and it worked perfectly before all this.

@zegkljan: chown -R it is then.

@zero456: sigh... thanks for the heads up, shipping a GPUs.txt until upstream fixes it. That's what happens when you refuse to go open source.

@jpkotta, @BS86: I can use my GPU just fine without being in the video group, got a 1050 on my server. I never started this service as root. And no the fah user should not be created, that's what DynamicUser is all about. I can definitely add SupplementaryGroups though.

@alucryd PermissionsStartOnly is deprecated ( Try ExecStartPre=!... for the chown command.

jpkotta commented on 2020-04-17 17:12

@BS86 Not sure, my GPU is too old for F@H. Maybe an After= in the unit file would fix it?
