I've been struggling with this for months now - I just can't Seti to download new tasks. Every time I click on Update, I get a "Communications deferred" error.
Also, and this may or may not be related, I have set BOINC to auto-start, and it does, but it's always disconnected. So I Exit the manager, then kill the boincmgr task - otherwise it won't restart - and manually re-launch BOINC. Afterwards it looks ok, but it won't grab new tasks.
I have a HP notebook with an AMD A10 CPU (5745M) running Linux Mint 18.2 Mate, kernel 4.10.0.24.
Seti used to run just fine on an older version, but some distribution or kernel update broke it,
So far I've tried removing Seti from BOINC manager and adding it again, and re-installing BOINC manager.
Any idea what can be done to fix this?

This may just have fixed itself... I now see tasks running under Tasks. Weird.

Hi.

After a long time of using boinc and seti@home, it suddenly cant fetch new task, problems with version 7. My Linux Mint version has the version 7 of boinc, and I tried to follow the guide to make the app_info.xml to work. But this time boinc cant find the files. Where does I drop and run the seti with grapichs files on linux min? Tries under share, user, boinc maps there without luck.

I have no clue to make this work. But my rosetta project works fine.

Please help.

You shouldn't need the anonymous platform to use Seti under Linux. The stock applications have come a whole lot since years ago and can run on many distros.
Your computer showed it downloaded 3 tasks.
