Hi!
I'm running seti@home on linux (ubuntu 12.04 LTS) with boinc 7.0.27. I'm interresting by astropulse, i know the FAQ say:

If you have already attached your computer to SETI@home and you use the default application, then you don't have to do anything. If your computer meets the minimum requirements, it should already be running Astropulse in addition to the original SETI@home. Your computer would have downloaded the Astropulse application when it asked for and received an Astropulse workunit.

I don't really understand. Is that mean my computer already receive data for astropulse?

Thanks!

It means you will get an Astropulse work unit if and when there is one available to you. They are scarce these days from what I understand.

In the meantime, you should have no problems getting regular work units those are always available unless their servers are down, which does happen.
