Message 755082 - Posted: 18 May 2008, 13:34:49 UTC

Hi,
finally succeeded in getting boinc running on a gentoo box using Gentoo: package name sci-misc/boinc (version 5.10.45).
When connecting to the server, the server responds with a i586-pc-lunux-gnu' platform not found message. So no download of a new task.
I found some discussions in the other threads about using -mcpu to overcome this, but as I'm a kind of newbee with linux, I wonder if somebody could explain?
Txs,
John

i686 is the right setting for your processor. Could you please post your 'emerge --info'.

You can use i686 compiled binary for your CPU. The -mcpu switch you're talking about is for compiling your own BOINC from the source code. In this case, I would just recommend downloading the appropriate optimized application. There is a whole thread about it here.
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=31810

I am using Crunch3r's from this page on my Linux PC now.

Stop BOINC before installing it. Once you install the optimized application, restart BOINC and you should be able to get new tasks.

OK, some things you should change:

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="x86"
(if you want an unstable ~x86 package, add it to the package.keywords file)

CBUILD="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
(changing this might break the system, but works mostly fine)

CFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium4 -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"

Hi,
Should I make the change in the file you mentioned (package.keywords)?

Hi Desti,
Ok, I managed to find out that a had to make those changes to make.conf. After that I deinstalled Boinc. Recompiled it again and now it works!
Te only issue I have is that there are no graphics when pressing the button "show graphics".

Greetings and Txs for your help!
John
