Is there any plan to try to run BOINC under the X11 environment in OS X? How about making a Fink package for it?

it will work under X11 as usual like in the terminal, just do the same instructions as is for the terminal.. I however do not know about a fink package, but know that it is not needed... Matt.

It would, however, be easier to install since the package format is the same as a Debian or Red Hat system. It would also be using the same X window calls for graphics.
