I'm really trying to understand the details myself.

I'm setting up the boinc client to run on my headless nas device running debian.

I've installed boinc-client, boinc-app-seti, and schedtool (which is needed in the command line to schedule the daemon, at least in the debian build).

Bryce: sudo apt-get install schedtool boinc-client (and the seti-app).
sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client start


Ok, and I've registered here, but reading the forums and such, it seems that I need to authenticate and start the project, but there is no clear instructions for setting and starting the work for terminal installs

I tried:
boinc_cmd --lookup_account http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ e-mail password
and get an authentication error.

Any suggestions?

nevermind, I've figured it out with this page:
http://wiki.debian.org/BOINC/Troubleshooting

This is more helpful than anywhere else I've found, I guess its really troubleshooting, but who would think to look there for command line setup instructions?

Bryce, if you have any troubles, I will help, as I have two debian machines now up and running

Please have a search over this forums. There are a lot of installation howoto posted in the SETI forums...
