The other day I gave this a shot and with no luck. I have Ubuntu Server installed on my Rack and was hoping to use the 8 Core Xeons @ x4 Per CPU for SETI.

I managed to get BOINC Installed I think if I remember correctly but I had trouble getting Work from the servers and setting up the Account in my name with my E Mail Address for my SETI Account.

I have tried to install or set up the Weak Account Key with no luck.

I will be trying again later tonight to get this set up on my Server. If anyone can help. What steps do I need to follow when setting up my Account after a direct installation of BOINC.

I was working threw the command prompt or CLI and was all over the place. I'm not 100% on Linux CLI at all.

Apologies for the time waisted posting this thread.

I've managed to successfully get BOINC working under Ubuntu 16.4.4 on my Rack.

I've got work from SETI Servers and their crunching away on my 8 core Chips.
