Some people did not know of the existance and state of the different ports for other, not offical supported ports of SETI Enhanced for other platforms.

Here is a list of the available ports :

http://www.lb.shuttle.de/apastron/boincDown.shtml :
- Solaris x86 on AMD64 (Opteron)
- Linux on AMD64 (Opteron)
- Linux on Itanium (IA64)
- Linux on PPC and Power CPUs
- HPUX 10.20/11.0/11i (V1 and V2.) on PARISC
- HPUX 11i (V.1 and V.2) on IA64 (Itanium)
- FreeBSD i386
- NetBSD i386
- OpenBSD i386

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=boinc-setiathome&stype=all
- FreeBSD i386

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/seti-warp/message/1467
- OS/2 i386


The ports for AIX, Irix, Linux on SPARC, Solaris x86 for i386 and TRU64 are in work.

I'm a bit curious as to why the AIX port would be so time consuming...one of the major "selling" points of (and the whole reason for using "L") in AIX 5L is its Linux affinity.

It's supposed to be fairly simple to take Linux source code and recompile it to run natively under AIX. I obviously suffer from the simplified naivete of the uninitiated, but it's got to be less time consuming that rewriting the code entirely, right?

Berkeley has no resources do port the source to these platforms. The ports of the other not offical supportted platforms are all done by volunteers in there leisure.

I'm wondering on the state of DEC Alpha port on Linux and freebsd. My freebsd-alpha client hasn't gotten new work in about 2 weeks, and I cannot get any seti client to compile on Linux. Alpha used to be very well represented on Seti.

The volunteer, which has made the Alpha Linux port, did not any more crunch seti.
But, I will try to port it to FreeBSD and Linux on Alpha.

At the Third Party Site (http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_other.php) are binaries for Linux on Alpha from the debian peoples listed. Could you please try this binaries.

Debian does indeed have packages and source for Boinc, but there does not seem to be any Seti-enhanced software available.

Ups, sorry, i have overseen that the seti binaries are missing...
I will try to compile it on Linux and FreeBSD on Alpha.

I should have been more specific in my post...the BOINC client itself is running just fine on my AIX systems. However, they are not receiving any work because they aren't running the seti-enhanced binary.

Any status on the port for this application?

The AIX port is still in work.
The new SETI Enhanced requires the new boinc client >=5.2.6 to use the FLOPS couting, th use of the new boinc client is recommened by Berkeley. So a port of the new boinc client is also needed.

Please be patient.

I will try to compile it on Linux and FreeBSD on Alpha.

I have begun with the port of these both platform, but now I am running in some problems on both platforms. I will need some time time to solve these problems....
Please be patient.

Thanks for working on these.

I have had real problems building this on linux; after resolving a bunch of issues, I am now stuck at an error: "g++:no input files".

I can't even get started on my freebsd box; it really needs to be updated from 4.10.

Thanks again.

Mike

I have managed to build it on FreeBSD on Alpha. The reference WU is running in the moment. Tomorow evening (UTC) I will have some results. I hope, that the results are OK.

The Linux Alpha port is still in work....

Thanks again.

You're welcome.

Madragoran, can you please write me (seti_boinc at dotsch dot de) a email, that I can mail you the binaries for testing.
The reference WU was successfull completed on FreeBSD Alpha and I have made a package, which is ready to test.

Speaking of ports to other platforms, I have put together a port to SGI Irix platform. Boinc client 5.4.9 and Seti@Home Enhanced 5.12 client.
The location of the package is mentioned here: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=31187#349404

Regards,

Nik.

Ups, now we have two ports for IRIX...
Do you wan`t to add a link at the third party site (boinc.berkeley.edu/download_other.php) to your donwload site ?

Btw. does it run on all IRIX releases and CPUs ?
Do you have linked it with the FFTW libs ?

Well, there has been no real news of the IRIX port in some time, so I decided to try and create one.

I will wait until the binaries are placed in the 'current' directory of the Nekochan file repository before adding a link to them. This should happen in the next few days.

The binaries run on IRIX 6.5.21 and above (current freely available IRIX is 6.5.22)
The binaries have been compiled to run on MIPS IV hardware (i.e. MIPS 5000 and above) - this means SGI O2, Octane, Fuel, Tezro, Origin series, Onyx 2, 3, 4.
There will be a release for R3000/R4000 series of CPUs done by the administrator of the Nekochan site.

The setiathome enhanced binary was linked against FFTW lib (single precision).

Nik.
