Post Running BOINC in Linux Mint 14(64)


Hi-

I've been running BOINC 7.08.* in Linux Mint 14(64-bit) for a while and it seems to ignore causing BOINC to crash during midnight automatic updates...

Thanks and later,

<tim12746@gmail.com>

So what is the problem you are facing?
You haven't provided enough details.
It looks like you are sharing this info with users.

I'm trying to run BOINC v.7.08 in Linux Mint (OS) 14_64

It stops running periodically - can't find the "core client" - don't know what a "core client" is or I'd help it... It continues to take up screen-space in a non-functioning mode - this might not be irritating to some, but it is to me as running BOINC is what this computer is supposed to be doing (not chatting with user-groups/etc.).

Additional details will be forthcoming were you to ask for them specifically.

I'm not particularly worried about who knows I'm running BOINC, actually...

AFAIK Linux as an operating system is pretty weird, and doesn't get hacked very often - but I'm willing to run an antivirus program when somebody comes up with one...

Thanks and I'm outta here...

What is the output of
Code:
ps aux | grep boinc
It looks like it loses the connection because of firewall.

It works on port 31416.
Are you sure it allows port 31416 to communicate on your system.

The following
Code:
# service boinc-client stop
# exit
$ boinc & boincmgr &
makes boincmgr ask to add a project or use the account manager. It looks like the daemon shouldn't have been running.

using just
Code:
$ boincmgr &
produces the same behaviour as above but
Code:
$ boinc & boincmgr &
works.
