I was rooting through my ~/BOINC directory a couple of day ago, when I noticed that the default 'run_client.sh'
script doesn't output any stdout or stderror files that I could find. Also, when run from the command line it doesn't return control to the terminal.
I decided this was the ideal oppertunity to test by bash scripting skills, which I soon discovered were non-existant
Anyway, I am running Slackware-current, Kernel 22.214.171.124 BOINC 4.43 and Seti 4.02
Here is the script in question, I managed to get it to write stdout (and hopefully stderror) to file but it still won't return to the terminal. The solution is something blindingly obvious I'm sure
cd "/home/andrew/BOINC" && ./boinc >> /home/andrew/BOINC/output 2>> /home/andrew/BOINC/errors
It should be all one line.
So much for my 1337n355
