I installed new BOINC client/manager apps, in an attempt to get S@H working.
(I get persistent HTTP download errors, and no workunits for SETI at home since Jan 2012. I run PrimeGrid and Einstein on my Box - which runs Ubuntu 10.04LTS with zero problems.)

I went from 6.10.45 to 6.12.34 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) and all seemed well until I stopped the science apps from the boinc_mgr gui, Upon reboot, nothing is working.

Normally, my init scripts restart BOINC, but now I have no running science apps, and boincmgr can't connect to the client, as if it's not able to complete its startup and start listening.

Here's what "ps" shows:

boinc 12996 0.0 0.0 94096 17608 ? SN 06:39 0:00 /usr/bin/boinc --check_all_logins --redirectio --dir /var/lib/boinc-client
ralphw 13280 98.4 0.1 333656 24080 ? Rl 06:41 2:15 /usr/bin/boincmgr

1) boinc should be running as the "boinc" user
2) The boincmgr application runs as whoever is logged in

So why can't they connect? If there's a permission problem, what else do I need to clean up? (I may have run boinc as root during my earlier testing of the new BOINC binaries. Shouldn't rebooting clean things up, or is there some manual step I must run)

Here's stderrdae.txt

I can run other commands, such as "boinccmd --get_project_status". That returns quite a bit of data, but I suspect it's all from local XML files, and not actually hitting the network.

Message 1200341 - Posted: 27 Feb 2012, 13:34:13 UTC - in response to Message 1200317.

Problem was resolved after two more reboots, as well as changing permissions on files in /var/boinc-client.

The getaddrinfo failure still seems odd, I've never seen that fail before.
