Am running boinc by using commend line ./boinc_client
I want it to stop download new WU, how can i do that?
For the GUI window, I know it has a button for [no new task], but doesn't seem to have this option when run using the command line.
I am thinking to to re-install a new operating system on this computer.

But even if i specify ./boinc_client --fetch_minimal_work , it still downloaded 4 WU.

Thanks

You probably want to use boinccmd to specify NNT

from the site linked:

--project URL operation

nomorework: finish current work but don't get more;

should be equivalent to hitting the NNT button in the GUI BOINC manager.

NB I use the GUI so I may be utterly wrong :)

That is exactly what it does. You will see the familiar status of "Won't get new tasks" in the GUI after sending the command. I use it and many of the other functions from boinccmd all the time.

Also the full syntax for here would be:
boinccmd --project http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ nomorework
