I have posted about this yet again. Ton's of threads here and at WCG.

Can anyone help me with something I can post concerning LINUX and WCG? I have people I know asking for links and so forth.  Wink

TLD, when I go to "Installing The BOINC Client Software on Linux", it looks confusing. Any link there about doing this on WCG?  :idea:

Those are the intructions that I used to get my self going.
Getting the client running automatically wasn't covered though, I must admit.  That part might be more specific to your distro, I don't know.
I did find, though, that you can crunch more units of you just run the client (via the script "run_client") and check on it with the manager than if you start everything with the manager.

Dark Angel, it's not for me. I want to send this info to LINUX users. I hope they can figure out those scripts.  :idea:

Well, I'd been using linux for about an hour before I worked through that install, so it can't be too hard. Wink

The script I was referring to is in the BOINC directory after you unpack it.  No need to do anything other than run it.  It's just the launch script for the client, nothing fancy.

Just a thought, does your kernel support the dual cores or is it just 64bit?
You may need to go to the repositories and download the kernel with SMP support. That's "Symetrical Multiple Processor".
I'm not sure but you might need that to properly access multiple cores as they are really multiple CPU's in a single package.
Or I could be wrong.
I figure it's worth looking into.

actually just noticed that was for a 32 bit install...the process should be similar, but probably with k8 instead of k7.
