Hi all,

Having issues getting boinc installed properly.. at the moment only way it runs is when i load it myself. i'm just running it from the home directory where it unpacked to after i downloaded it

also want to get the screen saver thread going, hopefully the ion2 chipset is compatible...


i have both the latest (to date) boinc and nvidia drivers installed. and am running Ubuntu 12.04 incase that makes a difference


Many thanks in advance

Me
