Could someone please tell me if this message
means that seti@home on sparc/linux is a no go?



Cheers

The BOINC client makes the communication with the project(s) (up- and download) and the scheduling between the differnet projects and start a science application (like SETI,...). So you have got install a seperatly binary for each scicence project, too.

There are Linux SPARC binaries of the BOINC client and SETI application available at the BOINC and SETI third party site : boinc.berekeley.edu/download_other.php.
You have got to install SETI binaries for Linux SPARC manualy, too. I recommend you to download one of the precompiled SETI binaries, because it was very difficutly to get the SETI application working proper on Linux SPARC.

If you have installed the SETI binaries, you need to stop the BOINC client and restart it with "./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu"

It would be nice to get my 8 cpu beast working.
In regards to dotsch's message, is there anywhere I can get the SETI application binaries for sparc cpus under linux?

As Dotsch said, you can find those from http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/DownloadOther

Or you can use Dotsch his own site:

Thx, Jord.

Ahm, Lord BoB, your system throwing out errors. Please stop the BOINC client and set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH correctly, as I have written it in the manuals : export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/boinc/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH and start the BOINC client again.

I'm getting the same error
Message from server: platform 'sparc-unknown-linux' not found

My seti account has the following .profile:
SHLIB_PATH=/usr/lib:/opt/boinc/lib:/usr/local/lib
export SHLIB_PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/boinc/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

seti@edison:~$ echo $SHLIB_PATH
/usr/lib:/opt/boinc/lib:/usr/local/lib
seti@edison:~$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/opt/boinc/lib:

I'm running on an Ultra60 with Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

I've installed the
boinc51020_10.linux-sparc.tar.gz
and then run the
seti_boinc-5.27.10-linux-sparc.tar.gz

I must be missing something....

Have you restarted the BOINC client with "./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu" after you have attached to the project ? - This step is needed, that the BOINC client read the app_info.xml after the attachment, and see that the SETI application binary is installed.
If you have done this step and get this error, could you please look into /opt/boinc/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/ if there are the both files app_info.xml and setiathome-5...

Have you attached to setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu ? - If yes, could you please try to do a "./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiweb.berkeley.edu"

If this not work, please detach and reattach to http://setiathome.berkeley.edu after the attachment and the benchmark was ran, stop the BOINC client and do a update with "./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu"

So far I know is setiathome.berkeley.edu the right project URL, but the other one should also work...

There is something totaly wrong at your installation. But I am not shure what's the cause of this problem.

Could you please reattach to the SETI project again with this projedure :
- cd /opt/boinc
- rm *xml
- ./boinc_client -attach_project http://setiathome.berkeley.edu YOUR_ACCOUNT_KEY
- If the BOINC benchmark was ran, stop the BOINC client with "ctrl+C" and start it again with "./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu"

If the client hang again, could you please add a "-no_gui_rpc" to each boinc_client command above.

Could you please stop the BOINC client and reinstall the SETI application. The files setiathome-5... and app_info.xml should be installed in /opt/boinc/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu. After this start the BOINC client with "./boinc_client -update_prefs http://setiathome.berkeley.edu"
