Beowulf crashes often

hi,  it seems that Beowulf on my computer is crashing often.  typically the screen would freeze and keyboard is not responsive.  I use Beowulf on my HTPC and usually firefox and kodi are opened on the desktop.  It's installed on a HP computer with Nvidia card and solid state HD.

anyone else has beowulf crashing issues?

No such problems here. In fact, Beowulf has been totally reliable on my system.  I, too, have an HP desktop with an SSD, but I run just the integrated Intel graphics. It wouldn't surprise me if your issue was Nvidia related. Are you using nouveau or the proprietary drivers?

Re: Beowulf crashes often

I use nvidia proprietary driver installed through 'synaptics' on this computer.  i believe it's a 9300 series card from nvidia.

Perhaps you could try the open source nouveau driver, just to help narrow things down. I gave up on Nvidia when my last Nvidia card died a few years ago, but there seems to be no end of glitches and trouble and version mismatches and whatnot with the proprietary drivers. Hopefully an Nvidia expert will chime in...

Re: Beowulf crashes often

Jupp, my X470/Ryzen7 2700X/RX580 also crashes on me time by time. I think the RX580 is the reason:

Same issue before with ASCII. Does not happen every day, more once a month, but its not nice. Looks like the underground processes like hddtemp still are working, but the computer isn't usable any more, no reaction to mouse and keyboard.

I don't blame Beowulf, its a HW problem.

Re: Beowulf crashes often

Hi

Have you tried with the backports kernel and drivers. It is quite wellknown that kernel 4.19 is a bit to old to support Ryzen 2700X. And there have been reported numerous problems with that should be solved by now.

Have a nice day

I have only installed proprietary drivers two times on computers, on one it was an hp laptop. Debian and devuan, didn't matter, it was so buggy that even a wifi adapter usb doesn't help. Thus that particular laptop is stuck with ethernet only wifi. Why bother with a wifi blob if it only works for the first 15 mins of being booted after all... smile

The other time though I used the blob was on an old desktop pc, for booting it up.  And there were no issues

Does your laptop function without nvidia, if so, I recommend it. proprietary blobs have unknown consequences. Security/privacy and who knows what else.

That's just me though, I am sure you are aware of this though.

I just wondered why anyone would take that risk.  Then again I use a thinkpad x200 libreboot (Hyperbola) on the daily for certain things.

For gaming, such as wine, I use x230 thinkpad (devuan)

But that all being said, if you don't need it, I would avoid it.

I hope you figure out what to do.... smile

I suppose you could try testing version.

Just don't use ceres. wink  that would be really, really dumb.

Have you installed the CPU µcode package?

Re: Beowulf crashes often

zapper...

This post is about my desktop system, I play OTTD and CounterStrike Source. The Graphics driver helps with CS:S, but it's so old the other drivers work fine, I find it easier to manage kernel and nVidia updates manually.

The desktop system is my entertainment system, constant music (streaming 4zzz radio, and my enormous cd collection), videos, games and web-browsing.

My laptop runs the same OS, but I don't bother with the graphics modules as I only use it in emergencies and occasional couch surfing.
It has an intel onboard and a nVidia card, I think it's able to switch on loading... but that maybe a m$Win thing, it had win7 and 10 on it at first.

Wireless was the main reason I went to backports, to tether off my iPhone :-) (Thanks to this site I got a "reliable" connection happening)

Anyhow, I haven't seen any security probs with the nVidia .run installs, it seems simpler to me (than dkms)... But I keep my eyes open and never stop learning about our operating systems and desktops.

Thanks for everything, Your mileage, of course may vary.

Best regards, Glenn

Re: Beowulf crashes often

I run the proprietary NVIDIA driver without any issues on Beowulf, no lock-ups on my two computers I run this OS on (NVIDIA 970 and 760, respectively); I use the NVIDIA packages from the repo.

One thing though, if one has enabled the «backports» repo when installing the NVIDIA driver packages one might come into package conflicts; at least that was my experience a couple of times in ASCII. If this is the case, one might try removing all NVIDIA packages, disable «backports» and try again.
Just a suggestion.

Cheers,
Olav

Ah, okay...   Well,  if it works for ya, good.  I don't trust blobs myself, if I think they are related to network or have a remote weakness.  But if its fine for you, by all means. That's just my view. heh...
