Have anyone done a succesfull compile and build on SuSE 7.0 (kernel 2.2.16)? The make script is complaining about the g++ compiler, which is obvious not there..... changing to gcc compiler gives nasty errors.

This machine is almost idle 7x24, so some usefull work for this machine is welcome (upgrade is *no* option)

Kind regards,
Huibert

I have downloaded the free ISO image of SuSE 9.1 and am running the compiled versions of both boinc and boincgui. I don't think they would run on 7.0, for lack of libraries. I went from SuSE 6.4 to 7.3 and now to 9.1.

Hello,

You will not be able to use the 2.2.x based system as both the g++ libraries and the base clib is to old for what is being pre-compiled. Through some work I could get the boinc to compile on a slackware 2.2.18 system but you run into the issue that the seti software is downloaded in a "jit" fashion and it is not staticly linked. I don't think the anonymous mode of the boinc software (which would allow you to compile the client and keep a copy of it on the local system) would work in the case either but do not know.

It would be nice to have a 2.2.x version of the seti software just as we had with classic bersion 3.03 (but they dropped it when they went to 3.08).

You can run classic but not the new boinc. It is just to heavy into c++ and features of gcc 3+ that we are just left behind on those systems as upgrade of mine is not an option either.

i have been running a compiled boinc and a boincgui compiled by me on a SuSE7.3 system augmented with the libgcc_3.2 from a RedHat distribution, I was unable to compile boincgui with my current gcc3.3,3 from SuSE 9.1. I think gcc2.95.3 was a good compiler. I compiled all Mesa-6.0.1 tools with it. Now I have recompiled them with gcc3.3.3 and I get a lot of "segmentation faults". Don't now why.
