According to an email received today, I joined Seti@home back in May 1999. Because of this email, I decided to install and get back into it. But wait, it's not that easy. I'm running Ubuntu and installed from the package manager. I just get are error messages, possibly due to my V6 install and it wants V7. Well without a step-by-step upgrade or fix instruction I'm probably not going to bother. My computers will continue running 24/7 with not much to do.

A search for info on the error message turned up this thread. A sensible question containing a simple typo, and the only answer is "That tells us a lot.".

It's a good idea to think about replies for a while before posting; this is not my first draft. :(

Well, if you've installed Linux before you know there is a lot of information
needed to work on problems. I quit playing with Linux back around SUSE 8.2
but you might check out
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_forum.php?id=10
the Number crunching forum under Message Boards.
(I got tired of dealing with missing libraries and permissions problems that seemed unending.)

There are a number of people in there that run Ubuntu and should be able to help you.

happy to inform, slackware linux works with boinc out of the box. tried on 14.0 and 14.1
only problem, who i found, boincmgr on slack64 14.0 not work because there must to install one lib - i can see home, what exactly, but boincmgr not necessary part of boinc, as so it be a minor problem, i think.
