Hi I downloaded and installed boinc_5.2.13_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh.Did not have any error msg. I then went to the Boince dir and ran ./run_client and got this msg - 2005-12-06 03:25:15 [---] Another instance of BOINC is running.
I then tried ./run_manager and the gui manager starts up tries to connect to the local host and fails asking do I want to try again. If I check the terminal window I see this - connect: Connection refused
connect: Operation now in progress
init_poll: get_socket_error(): 111
(these lines about 3/4 pages of)
init_poll: get_socket_error(): 111
init_poll: get_socket_error(): 111
RPC_CLIENT init timed out
connect: Connection refused
If I try file/select computer in the gui and select localhost. I have tried rebooting but boinc seems to be starting on start up. I did not atach any projects during installation and the gui will not let me as it is not connecting to the local boinc. I have the windows (same version number) running on a seperate machine, but as this machine is on 24/7 and runs Linux I would like to run it on this machine.
I\'m realitively new to Linux but am not afraid of the command line, just don\'t know it well enough.

This helped here

As said in the posting:
I found a posting and had to dig a bit deeper to resolve this problem.

http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=15367
# Place a remote_hosts.cfg file with the line 127.0.0.1 in your /BOINC directory.
# This _might_ help as your problem _seems_ to be boincmgr connecting to boinc.

1. I placed a remote_hosts.cfg file as mentioned in the above posting.

But there where some files which have another ip_addr than 127.0.0.1:

For this do a find command as follows:
(Replace \"192.168.10.5\" with your network cards IP)

find . -type f -exec grep -iH \"192.168.10.5\" {} \\;
./client_state.xml: <ip_addr>192.168.10.5</ip_addr>
./sched_request_bbc.cpdn.org.xml: <ip_addr>192.168.10.5</ip_addr>
./slots/1/init_data.xml: <ip_addr>192.168.10.5</ip_addr>
./sched_request_setiathome.berkeley.edu.xml: <ip_addr>192.168.10.5</ip_addr>
./client_state_prev.xml: <ip_addr>192.168.10.5</ip_addr>

So 2. I changed this entries from \"192.168.10.5\" to \"127.0.0.1\" in all files and it works.

But only for one run until the next job wants to be started.

A find shows again:
$ find . -type f -exec grep -iH \"192.168.10.5\" {} \\;
./client_state.xml: <ip_addr>192.168.10.5</ip_addr>
./slots/1/init_data.xml: <ip_addr>192.168.10.5</ip_addr>

It seems boinc don\'t want to use the l0 ip adress 127.0.0.1 :-/
