Re: Boinc in Rapsberry?

Update to earlier posts:- OProject The subproject ALX appears to be discontinued for some weeks now so no OProject work for the RPi. Also, IIRC, all OProject subprojects won't work on "old" BOINC versions e.g., (RPi) v7.0.27 and the much older, much beloved version provided by NativeBOINC. BOINC dev...

Re: Boinc in Rapsberry?

Experience running various BOINC projects on my RPi suggests more CPU memory over CPU overclock. Maybe there is a memory threshhold vs marginal return/swapfile issue? I don't know as I'm only running 256mb - pretty sucessfully :lol: See:- http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/host/detail/73034905/charts

NativeBOINC? Not on the RPi Android "releases" and not, I fear, soon given the existing history :(

Re: Boinc in Rapsberry?

Nah - 7.0.27 just gives the usual "project does not support armwhatever" fails when attaching.

TBH I don't care about forum abuse:- this is important (think 1 mill+ new BOINCers.)

FWIW you'll LOVE that U2 when it arrives - I have 3 crunching via Android :lol:

Re: Boinc in Rapsberry?

Great to see people have BOINC running on the RPi.
I'm still trying without luck ... using the standard BOINC download (sudo apt-get install boinc) gets me version 7.0.27.
What BOINC version are people with completed tasks running?
