1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : suse 10.2 and boinc, does not work (Message 25677)
Posted 19 Dec 2006 by old_user214266
Origionally i did not know there was a difference between BBC and climate, so I just ran the BBC flavor. I updated and all heck broke loose. The client ran for a while, but then just stopped, so - I had to re-download a new unit to work on. The old one was lost as the client would no longer even accept it. I\'ll have to see if I have the same issue later. Unfortunately i was unable to \"detach\" from the old project - as the client just crashed and had to re-download a new one.

Only gripe left is Seti will not see Konqueror 3.5.5 or Firefox, only opens a shell and prints text, but I was able to get the web url from the file - and just bookmarked that.

i still get the same Gdk warnings, and connection refused, but it does seem to be running again in openSuse 10.2 32 bit flavor.

OK I have switched over to suse 10.2 with KDE, the client does not run.

When trying to start the application \"./run_manager\" I get these errors.
~/BOINC> ./run_manager

Gdk-WARNING **: Missing charsets in FontSet creation

Gdk-WARNING **: JISX0208.1983-0

Gdk-WARNING **: KSC5601.1987-0

Gdk-WARNING **: JISX0201.1976-0

send: -1
send: Bad file descriptor
connect: Connection refused
connect: Operation now in progress

I have signed up for 3, only 1 now, projects. Currently I a mtrying running climateprediction. The buttons only load the web page in the shell - so I really can not intearct with anything - so I had to copy and paste a url in a script file to get here. The Clinet also just stays at 0 percent, and running. What gives with BOINC 5.4.9? sometimes it \"does\" move the counter, but about 1 second every 2 minutes. On an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ with 1 gig of memory, this for sure should be running faster. Is this client just too buggy or. . . .

Help is appreciated.
