    Default Missing A Core?

    it appears im missing a core, or does anyone know if this is a bug? ive read it the other way that /proc/cpuinfo is sometimes bugged with 2 cores but not this way

    root@teh4x:~# pyrit list_cores

    The following cores seem available...
    #1: 'CUDA-Device #1 'GeForce 9600M GT''
    #2: 'CPU-Core (x86)'

    Did you look below the table ?

    Do not worry, your cores are there. As far as I know, pyrit always leaves one core free (reserved), otherwise your computer could halt.

    i.e. if you are using a quad-core, pyrit will only use 3 of them.

    This is sort of correct. :-) each gpu uses one core for its work so it is not listed. The remaining cores are listed and used by pyrit. So for example on a quad core with 2 8800gt cards it would look like this:

    The following cores seem available...
    #1: 'CUDA-Device #1 'GeForce 8800 GT''
    #2: 'CUDA-Device #2 'GeForce 8800 GT''
    #3: 'CPU-Core (SSE2)'
    #4: 'CPU-Core (SSE2)'

    What pure says on this particular subject take it for granted, he is the CUDA-pyrit man here

    BTW how's your latest power invoice, pureh@te ?
