So I have this NUC that has been serving as a Bitcoin node as well as a Linux Distro seeder.
Figured, as its CPU usage is so low, I might as well install BOINC and run S@h

All installed, but no CPU usage.
Had a look with boinccmd --get_tasks and pretty much every one of the 150 tasks seems to have failed with "Compute Error" (I'll paste a sample below).

Any thoughts on what might be wrong and how I can fix it?

Thank you! :D

It would be helpful if you identified the HostID of the computer you are referencing. I see no tasks with computational errors, only abandoned.

I know that a lot of the low power devices, such at Surfaces and NUCs have an issue that BOINC won't even run becauses of a library that is not compatible. You need to install the 32 bit version of BOINC to get BOINC to run.

But your error suggests BOINC runs a science app that simply fails. Without having any stderr.txt output from a failed task to examine, it is hard to help you.
