It's long past time to upgrade the version on Boinc Manager: I'm using v. 5.10.20 and working only on Seti@home

But is there as simple process to update the software at my end? I've looked at the upgrade screen and it looks like gibberish to my non-Geek eyes.

Second: the "easy" server update process failed as I read step 2. I'm sorry, but anything listed as "easy" should not require compiling and recompiling.

Thus, I presume I'm missing something. Something so simple that I can't see it.

Since it's currently -26C in darkest Saskatchewan, with a wind chill of -39 (and it's supposed to be close to spring), I'll blame it n the outside temperature and beg for help. :)

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_on_Mac_OS_X should help you along. Upgrading is just the same.
