I cant get the pre-compiled BOINC to work on my linux box:-
error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Where can I get the source code to compile it myself, followed the links on boinc.berkeley.edu but they dont have the 4.02 version there, or if they do I cant find it.

I'm not a linux guru or anything but I've found that the library is part of newer distros of linux. I have Redhat 7.2 installed on two systems at home, one being a fairly recent install, and one that's been customized and upgraded with parts of other linux distros. The recently installed version needed a different library to run and got that running fine. The older install is asking for the same library which I found in a RPM package for Redhat 8 and up, but requries a lot of other packages upgraded as well.

I haven't upgraded it yet but will get to it soon. Check out <A HREF="http://rpmfind.net">RPMFind.net</A> (my favorite linux library site), copy / paste "libstdc++.so.5" into the search field and see if there's a .RPM package for your distro. You will need other library upgrades to get it installed without problems.

Ok thanks for your quick reply, if it was just one package I would have installed it but since it will need several I think I will leave it and just carry on with my windows client for now. Using redhat 7.2 also.

you can download the boinc source and compile from here (run "./configure --disable-server" from the boinc/ directory created to just build a client):

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/source/nightly/

The CPDN/BOINC 4.02 client would be this one:

Thanks Carl, did give it a try but it bombs out in the congigure grumbling it cant find mysql_config exectutable, no doubt if I get that sorted it will then want something else, had this happen before, can go on forever sometimes.

Its not a very fast box so its not a great loss to the project, probably not worth the effort ;)

if you do ""./configure --disable-server" (or maybe it's one "-" not "--") it should not look for the mysql_config stuff and just build a client

./configure --disable-FEATURE

Its what the feature is called though, obviously not server ;) tried it in caps too but still no luck

Edit: should have gone to boinc site and read a bit more, solution was export MYSQL_CONFIG=true then do regular ./configure

Bombs out in the make now ../lib/util.C:34:18: locale: No such file or directory, tried make -k and make in the client dir
