Hi,

All CLI system
Ubuntu 12.04/12.10 Server
Using only boinc-client

There's several directories for the boinc-client:
1. Which is what?
2. If I would like to place a shell script I've done, nothing in particular, where would I put it? Which is the "directory" you enter your user files in?

/var/lib/boinc-client/*
/usr/bin/boinc/*
/etc/boinc-client/

* set in /etc/default/boinc-client
placed in /etc/default/ which of course is a system directory, not boincs own!

3. /etc/boinc-client/ I'll guess files inhere will be read at boot-up!? If, does the file need to be defined somewhere to be read at boot-up?
4. Are there more boinc directories? default directories after installation of boinc-client??

Once, a long time ago, Mr. Ageless I think it was, tried to explain me some about this. But I can't remember it, and I didn't understand it quite either. So if you/someone has got the time, please spell it out for me ;)

Hello Mr. Ageless ;)

Thanks.. I looked in the wrong places, I can see that ;)


Puts the BOINC binaries (boinc, boinccmd and boincmgr) in /usr/bin .

Creates a configuration directory /etc/boinc-client containing files cc_config.xml, global_prefs_override.xml, gui_rpc_auth.cfg, and remote_hosts.cfg (It is a Debian convention that such files live under /etc)

Creates the working directory /var/lib/boinc-client/ for BOINC data files and the slots and projects directories. Also creates links from this directory to the files in /etc/boinc-client

Creates a user named boinc. For improved security, this boinc user owns the BOINC working directory and all the data files and sub-directories created under the working directory.

Creates the daemon "init" script, /etc/init.d/boinc-client, and a set of configuration options for the daemon at /etc/default/boinc-client

Sets up the daemon to autostart at boot time.



Thanks for helping me...
Have a nice day ;)
