F8 and BOINC
 
I installed F8 (fresh) on one of my machines (not my primary box!), and
BOINC seems to have some issues now.


After I cleaned up the install to my prefs, I downloaded the latest &
greatest BOINC software (5.10.21). When I tried to run the manager, I
got "Assertion `!c->xlib.lock' failed." A search turned up some issues
with F8 - here is one relevant to mine:

http://staff.science.uva.nl/~hveerten/linux.html

Well, I can't use that version. So I tried the former version (I left
/home intact). However, its gui freezes as soon as it appears. If
there's another window over it, and I bring it to the front, it's not
updated. And, I have to force quit.


A terminal works, as does Firefox.

What's going on?

I'm seeing this Assertion error from the Sun Java RPM as well.
Thankfully, I don't need the Sun Java to run my applications.

Is that what BOINC is using?

I'm sure that it doesn't use Java (was running boinc before I installed
Java). In my search, I noticed several Java references.


My limited linux knowledge leads me to think that Java uses the same
libraries.

Known issue. [1]
Seems the BOINC (like java) is incompatible with new(er) X.org releases.
