People,

Some years ago this used to work for me but for the last few versions of
Fedora that I have used (12, 14 and now 16) I haven't had any luck - the
client keeps stopping.

Has anyone got the latest version going on F16 x86_64?

Thanks,

Phil.


Hi Phil:

You have to add your username to the boing group, and then restart your
computer.



Did that - trying to add a project causes a "Connecting" message briefly
and then immediately returns to "Disconnected" and I see in the terminal
where I started the client:

SIGSEGV: segmentation violation
Stack trace (14 frames):
/usr/lib64/libboinc.so.6(boinc_catch_signal+0x1bc)[0x316023753d]

boinc_client[0x4135d9]

Exiting...


I suppose I should log a bug report somewhere but this is not a high
priority app for me but it would be nice if it would "just work" . .

Thanks,

Phil.


Phil:

After adding my username to the boinc group, I made sure the service was
enabled and running (using systemd), and then I started "boincmgr". Then
I went to "Advanced -> Select computer -> Host name: localhost", and as
password I put the content of the file /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg


But maybe you should file a bug.

Good luck
Germán.

Thanks! - I eventually got it working with a blank password (ie only
CR/LF i the file). Now my computer can be of use to some other people's
scientific research again!

Phil.

Nice to see it is working for you again!

I'm running the project Milkyway@Home

Have a nice day,
