I have a couple of GPU tasks running, each is allocating .7 of a CPU thread. Yafu tasks site idle, because they say they need all the CPU threads.

I think this was brought up here in the past, and maybe on the mail lists too. Was a solution ever found? For what it's worth, this is with 7.0.31.

Don't know exactly, but on the boinc mailinglists they stated something that cooperation between mt cpu app and gpu apps was corected.

Yeah, I think they fixed it so that the MT task does not preempt the GPU task. And that is working correctly. The problem is that the MT task does not know to use "total threads minus GPU allocations". It wants all the threads. So it just sits there eternally waiting to run.

The problem isn't fixed.
I can not run YAFU with my GPU's.
Greetings.
