Hi all,

I am building a website about helping the newbies to start with BOINC and other grid computing projects.

Actually, i am building a list about the specifications for starting with a project, can you help me please?.

I need to know on many OS (Operation System) this project works, so i can update this list https://sciencenerd.it/calcolo-distribuito/progetti-boinc-come-scegliere/ (is in italian , but i will translate in all languages :P)


Also, i am mapping the BOINC community around the world,

Welcome, Vincenzo.

At the moment the project supports only Microsoft Windows. However, in the longer term it supports both Linux and Mac, but there is a bug with those applications at the moment so they have been temporarily withdrawn.

Hi Vincenzo,
the only thing I would add to what Ian has said is that CPDN does run using the Windows version of BOINC under WINE.

While this is true as a practical matter, I sometimes get a work unit like this one: hadcm3s_x5300_190012_60_771_011668342 for my Linux 64-bit machine. And they often (over half the time) complete successfully.

This one: hadcm3s_x5300_190012_60_771_011668342_2 is running now, has executed about 100 hours of CPU time and is claimed to be 82% complete. There are four .zip files queued to be uploaded, though the server has not been working correctly. They upload 100%, but they then immediately requeue to be uploaded. This has been going on for several days now.
