Hi everyone. I've been trying to attach the SETI@home project to my linux computer, but it keeps returning the error "unable to contact server" or something like that. Did the whole apt-get install, and it went fine. I can get into the BOINC Manager just fine and attach to other projects with no problem. I dont want them, I want SETI like I have on all my other boxes (folding proteins and chess simulators...ehhhh :\\, 'E.T. Phone us' ahhhhh :) )

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Dan

Dont know about a server problem, possibly. My Windows partition communicated with the server just fine.

Tried at again, but this time it said my boinc manager wasnt attached to a client and to enter localhost. Did that, didnt fix the problem. shutdown/restart blah blah blah, didnt help either. I decided to not be so stubborn and just reinstall the package through package manager rather than console.

It worked. Incomplete d/l or install maybe?

Sounds like a bug in their apt-get or install scripts. Luckily the pkg mgr did the right steps. Post again if you still can't attach to SETI and get work.

Can you ping these addresses from your AMD machine?
setiboinc.ssl.berkeley.edu
boinc2.ssl.berkeley.edu

Some packet loss is normal, I think.

I had trouble similar on Kubuntu 7.10. Try uninstalling all BOINC and seti packages and then reinstall just the boinc client and manager. The repositories have some other "boinc-app-seti" package that I originally installed and it was apparently causing problems.

I was having the same problem, & as I'm using windows & Kubuntu I tryed running the Bionc manager on the windows partion under wine, worked like a dream.
So now I just use the windows Bionc & do work on the same task. I am using the latest version of wine.
hope this helps
