Hi all-

I have Boinc installed on my Mint 19.3 system. It seemed to be fine for awhile, but i haven't been running many projects because my research has been using up the cpu cycles. Now that those have passed, i went to check in on Boinc. At first i was able to launch Boinc Manager normally. It was closed, and now today i can't get into it.

It won't launch either from the menu or from the terminal. I've tried stopping and restarting the service, as well as doing a force-reload of the service.

When i look at my processes through system monitor, i see boincmgr there, but it appears to be a zombie. I can't seem to wake it up or get another started.

Please help! Thanks!
