1) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : Can't quit Terminal? (Message 946)

You can also use the "cron" facility to automatically run boinc when your Mac starts up. With the old SETI@Home client, I had it launch the client at startup and then again every hour. That way if the client quits because of some communication problem, it gets relaunched within an hour. If the client was already running, it would just exit. The new client works the same way.

If you don't know how to configure cron, try Googling. MacDevCenter and MacOSXHints have discussed it on their sites.

What are the system requirements for the Mac OS X client? It runs fine on my Panther machine, but I get messages about a lot of undefined symbols when I try to run it under Jaguar.

Here's the list:
