Ubuntu 18.04, FahCore returned: UNKNOWN_ENUM (127 = 0x7f)

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Ubuntu 18.04, FahCore returned: UNKNOWN_ENUM (127 = 0x7f)

Post by dieselnut » Mon May 07, 2018 7:29 pm

Hi there,

I've been folding on my GTX 670 under Linux for a number of years, most recently under Xubuntu 17.04. Well, I installed regular Ubuntu 18.04 over the weekend and can't seem to get the GPU to fold. The specific error I see in the logs is:

Code: Select all

WARNING:WU01:FS01:FahCore returned: UNKNOWN_ENUM (127 = 0x7f)
Please note that I made no hardware changes. I did update the BIOS, but after that I did a minimal install of 18.04. I then switched to use third party NVidia drivers, namely nvidia-driver-390. I configured my folding client as usual, but the GPU won't fold. Here is my configuration:

Code: Select all

<config>
  <!-- Client Control -->
  <fold-anon v='true'/>

  <!-- Folding Slot Configuration -->
  <gpu v='false'/>

  <!-- Network -->
  <proxy v=':8080'/>

  <!-- Slot Control -->
  <pause-on-battery v='false'/>
  <power v='full'/>

  <!-- User Information -->
  <passkey v='********************************'/>
  <team v='40965'/>
  <user v='dieselnut'/>

  <!-- Folding Slots -->
  <slot id='0' type='CPU'/>
  <slot id='1' type='GPU'/>
</config>
After doing some debugging/searching, it seems that maybe I was missing the OpenCL packages? I installed the "headless" package, but that didn't seem to help. Here are all the NVidia package I have installed:

Any idea what may be going on? I did try bringing the CPU cores down to 6 (instead of automatic -1), but that didn't help anything.

Thanks!

Welcome to the folding support forum.

From the error being shown, it appears that the OpenCL support definitely is not installed or not completely installed. The last I looked, the xorg repository was working on providing a complete installer package for the nVidia drivers, not at home where I have some of this written down. There should be some OpenCL packages that go with the driver, a version that matches with the driver version you installed is needed to work properly.

It's safer to download the driver directly from NV website ...

Open a terminal and try the following:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install ocl-icd-opencl-dev
AND/OR

You can add the ppa for gpu drivers:

https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers ... ubuntu/ppa

I'm using nvidia-390 in 18.04 and have not had any problems other than running the command above.

EDIT re toTOW's comment ... that did not work well for me with 18.04 but using the ppa did work.
I've always been able to download and install the drivers from nvidia but for some reason was unable to do so with 18.04 and since the same drivers are in the ppa it's just a lot easier.

Woo! You guys are great, I installed ocl-icd-opencl-dev from the regular apt repository, along with the laundry list of dependencies, and now the GPU is running! Fantastic!

I wish the Folding@Home Linux install page would mention ANY of the problems with Ubuntu. The python-support dependency trips most people up as it is, and now this. Thank you gentlemen!

Is it possible for foldingforum.org admins to also edit the official FAH website to update technical details like the Linux Install Guide?

This is something I can not do, and do not recall if any of the other admins can or do. Formerly 7im did editing of the support guides like the Installation Guides, and there have been a few others connected with the forum who have done so in the past.

I think we're doing this distributed project a disservice by providing partial and/or incorrect installation instructions, especially for an OS that has a large percentage of 24/7 uptime. In these days of plug-and-go Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, many users may not want to spend the time debugging installation issues. They may not even know how if they wanted to. Granted, the solution in this case is a bit of apt knowledge and some extra packages, but this is surely losing us potential folders. I would ask that the admins really try to update the docs, especially for Ubuntu. I haven't tried Debian or any other distro in some time (I come from Slackware), but Ubuntu users really do expect things to "just work".

Anyway, just my $0.02

The only time I tried to install the drivers from the Nvidia download file I wound up having to reinstall Linux. I'll never do it again as the ppa install works great and I've done it many times with no problem.
