Hav'nt....had some "real" mess to clean up... where were we? I downloaded the script...it needs more stuff, you wanted to use the 64 bit, so, does that one run?

You're speaking greek. I've got no idea what you are doing.
If I did, I'd probably be doing it myself.

Well...it's not really greek - every program needs some "support" fro some shared things/libraries. BOINCtasks needs libnotify.so.4 and it camnnot find it...hence, I cannot start up the script...
Meditation should help us find the light, or...someone has to turn on the light...that's usually faster

Okay, ehmm...I just used CrunchBang (a derivate from Debian, Mint is one too) but, okay, lemme try to find a Mint CD and install that...

no DVD in the house...this may just have to wait, sorry...

well, Linux is ... educational (to put it mildly) in that there's always yet an other hurdle...I've set the reminder in my phone to get a stak of DVD's so I can install Mint on the testbox...perhaps there's some stuff CrunchBang does not ship with...dunnow...

Frodo, my laptop, only has three errors to his name and those all occurred from 4/19/2013 to 4/21/22013 with zero CPU time. Besides my issue is not errors, but CPU busy time.

If you have set up your box like my laptop is set up, you should have similar results unless it's the laptop that is causing the CPU Busy indicators.

Okay, just out of the blue, how about setting a higher priority for your program? You'd use renice for that...

...and the snag is: this *** box does'nt understand DVD's... :5
I doubt Mint is at the center of this, Mint is Debian based, as is CrunchBang...so there should be no significant difference...safe from the shipped bits-n-bobs...
