Hi,

I used to run SET@Home on a Solaris 8 machine years ago (before BOINC), and everything ran fine. I recently downloaded boinc_5.4.9_ultrasparcVIS64-sun-solaris2.8, started it up, but it doesn't seem to be attaching to project:

2006-12-11 09:37:37 [---] Visit http://boinc.berkeley.edu for instructions

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to attach to a project? I've visited boinc.berkeley.edu, but can't seem to find what I need.

Thanks!

Please start the boinc client with the option -attach_project option. For example : "./boinc_client -attach_project http://setiathome.berkeley.edu ACCOUNT_KEY".
Change ACCOUNT_KEY in the command above in the account key, you get mailed from the project after registration. The link to the account creation : http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/create_account_form.php

I was able to get the boinc_clinet up and running with my account key; however, after it starts, nothing happens:

boinc_client attached to SETI@home, but then nothing happens. Is a GUI suppose to start, or do I need to download additional files/scripts? I noticed that the CPU meter never showed activity on the processor. Also, a quick glance at the processes running shows no activity.

Sorry, my fault. I forget to say, that some BOINC clients delete the contents in the projects directory, when the option -attach_projet will be used.
To solve this, please stop the boinc client, untar the seti boinc package again and copy all files from the (untared) boinc seti package (projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/) directory to your installed BOINC projects directrory ($BOINC_DIR/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu).
After the copy, restart the BOINC client again : ./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu

Hmmm.......still nothing seems to be happening. Allow me explain the steps I took to get to this point......

I downloaded boinc5.49seti5.13sparc64sol8.tar.bz2, unzipped and untarred it. Then I ran the following command:

boinc_5.4.9_ultrasparcVIS64-sun-solaris2.8 -attach_project http://setiathome.berkeley.edu <ACCOUNT_KEY>

And here are the results:

Then I copied all the files in the /projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu directory to the same level as the boinc_5.4.9_ultrasparcVIS64-sun-solaris2.8 file. I then reran the boinc_client like so:

boinc_5.4.9_ultrasparcVIS64-sun-solaris2.8 -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu

This is what I got:

Still nothing. It seems as if I do not have the workspace setup properly, but I can find nothing in the docs that will help (where do I look?). What else am I missing?

Thanks!

Your setup looks good.
Can you please post the output from "grep rpc client_state.xml" here.

You have get it in the registration mail from SETI, also you can requesting it by this mail form : http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/get_passwd.php.
If you have already a installed and running SETI, you can "grep $BOINCDIR/authenticatior account_setiathome.berkeley.edu".

Hi Tony

I had an similar Problem here. To solve the Problem, i had two things to do:
First i had to say Unix which Proxy to use:
In the /.profile i added the Proxy:
http_proxy=http://192.168.1.10:3128/
https_proxy=http://192.168.1.10:3128
ftp_proxy=http://192.168.1.10:3128/
gopher_proxy=http://192.168.1.10:3128/
export http_proxy https_proxy ftp_proxy gopher_proxy

The second was the Time. I don´t know why, but before i could start Boinc the first time, i had to change the Date +24 Hours.
date <Date tomorrow>
start boinc (Now Boinc will download the Data)
after the download, stop Boinc, set the Date correctly and start Boinc again.
(If you use NTP, stop it first)

Greetings
Michael

Have you stopped the BOINC client before you copied the files ?
Can you please post the ouput from $BOINC_DIR/projects/setiatome.berkeley.edu/

oops sorry
I copied the content of the setiathome directory instead of copying the projects directory.
It now works fine.
Thanks for your help.

boinc_client attached to SETI@home, but then nothing happens. Is a GUI suppose to start, or do I need to download additional files/scripts? I noticed that the CPU meter never showed activity on the processor. Also, a quick glance at the processes running shows no activity.

Sorry, my fault. I forget to say, that some BOINC clients delete the contents in the projects directory, when the option -attach_projet will be used.
To solve this, please stop the boinc client, untar the seti boinc package again and copy all files from the (untared) boinc seti package (projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/) directory to your installed BOINC projects directrory ($BOINC_DIR/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu).
After the copy, restart the BOINC client again : ./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu


Hello,

I have the same problem atm.
I also use the binaries from Stefan Urbat.
You said that you should stop the client, untar the package again, and copy the content of the projects folder to the boinc home dir.
But I only have the binary, nothing more.
If I run it with -attach_project , it will create the projects directory for me, but it is empty.

The package should contain the BOINC client (boinc_client) and the SETI application (setiathome-5.1*). It looks like you have downloaded the wrong package. The "new Solaris 8 UltraSPARC I/II client/SETI" (boinc5.49seti5.13sparc64sol8.tar.bz2) should be the right one.


If I run it with -attach_project , it will create the projects directory for me, but it is empty.

Yes, this is excatly the problem as I have described. You need to attach, stop the BOINC client, copy the files to the project folder, and start the boinc client again with the -uppdate_projects option.

No success.

First of all, I made a new directory and copied the tar.bz2 in it.
Then I extracted the files and made a copy of the projects folder to project_archive.
Then I first started the client with the -attach_project option, waited for some time, and then stopped the client.
I looked for the projects folder, and everything was ok there, no files deleted.
So I restarted the client now with the -update_prefs option.
But it doesnt´t seem to work.
Here is some output from my machine.

I don´t know where to look else.
I run the client as a normal user, and not as root.
But shouldn´t be a problem.

I have looked at your computers on the website, and the sun systems are not correctly listed. Looked like someting at the attachment did not worked.
Could you please delete all xml files in $BOINC_DIR and do a boinc_client --attach_project and retry the procedure I have written again.

So, I deleted all XML Files and started again.
I also deleted the setiathome folder in projects after I stopped the boinc client, and copied the content from the tar archive.

Could you please try to stop the BOINC client and start it with "boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu".
