Boinc

Post by n8xyn »

An easy fast way to setup Boinc for the various projects it's used for would be awesome. I already use Dietpi where it's the proper choice of os and have for some time now. I just recently set up 2 Odroid XU4's, one Ordiod N2 and a Raspberry Pi 3b using Dietpi to save time. Looking up the boinc commands can be a pain though ;-) Maybe even just set it up for it's most common project seti@home... I've mabe a couple donations before and thanked you but feel I should say thank you once more :-)

Here is what I did to get it running on a full install on a openmediavault...(which can run on arm) so it ~should~ work

https://forum.openmediavault.org/index. ... post219778

I wonder if one of the devs can check it out and implement it...I think it needs multiarch of i386 in order to run...even under arm

But I 100% agree...this should be a package and/or a docker build...then there can be a dietpi group crunching WU's ;)

just a side node guys.

SETI@home will stop distributing work and will go into hibernation.
