Is anyone using a Raspberry Pi for crunching yet?
I wanted to try a few things out with them...

...This version provides manager, BOINC client and especially optimized applications for ARM processors. Currently, this is beta test version, but is succesfully tested and used by many people on the world.


Also look around the boards. Over in questions/answers-Unix/linux there are several threads like this one.

You can get BOINC 7.0.27 directly from the repo

After that I suggest you use the manager and attach to the project. It will say that the project doesn't support armhf.

Go to David Carrions blog here. He has various project apps compiled for the Raspberry Pi. Follow the instructions on his blog on how to install them. The instructions assume you are doing it all from a command prompt, but if you used the manager to attach to the project then you can skip that bit.

Currently I am crunching Asteroids@home on the Pi because they support it directly (no app_info required). Once its finished its current work (they take 3 days per wu) I will be trying the Albert@home app. They aren't fast but you can overclock them simply by running Raspi-config if you are up to date.

Thanks all!

I have it installed from the repo on one but it's not getting work...

I'll reload and try it again

Thanks again,

Kevin

Since the announce, I am running a slightly overclocked RaspberryPI on Seti.
At the moment I have reported just one (small) task after 2 days crunching.
Statistic is very low, but, based on this lonely data, I expect something around 450 credits/month.
You must not be in a hurry to crunch Seti with a RasPI!

Still crunching on, though!

Cheers,
Sleepy

I have my Pi overclocked on "medium" at the moment. It was taking around 67 hours for Asteroids work units.

Currently running Albert@home and its been going for 16.5 hours and is about 1/3rd of the way through. My guess would be around 50 hours a work unit.
