I\'m trying to run Linux Boinc and project climateprediction.net on a FreeBSD/amd64 box.
When boinc starts the climateprediction.net application I get the following messages:
Starting model in /usr/compat/linux/opt/BOINC/projects/climateprediction.net...
Created shared memory region key = 77930
Can\'t setup pointer to .so shared memory sulphur_4.21_i686-pc-linux-gnu: undefined symbol:
Can\'t setup pointer to .so graphics cleanup sulphur_4.21_i686-pc-linux-gnu: undefined symbol:
Copying files for startup...
Starting model ID sulphur_dh6t_000628805 Phase 1
Waiting for model startup, this may take a minute...
and there it hangs. I can see that a sulphur.... process is started, but it dont seem to do anything useful. I have also tried to make a brandelf -t Linux on all sulphur* files to make sure FreeBSD knows that it\'s a linux binary.
Does anyone got this working? I really would like to run CPDN on this machine as it\'s the fastest i\'we got :-)
The machine is running 7-Current/amd64 with Linux 32 emulation loaded and RH 8 libraries. Boinc is boinc_5.2.8_i686-pc-linux-gnu

I tried to do this a while back, and posted a message here,
and the reply was something along the lines of the dataset
or structure of it is OS-specific, and there wasn\'t one in the
pipeline for freebsd.
It\'s a pity because some of us admin some very powerful servers
that are up 24/7, and a lot of these are likely to be running some
BSD variant. Given that FreeBSD is still a \'minority\' OS, I can see why
there\'s neither the time nor the impetus to make a BSD version.
The error you will be getting is something like
\"Message from server: platform \'i386-portbld-freebsd6.0\' not found\"
