Thank you. I just wanted to be able to continue using my current work units. Since when you reformat the SD card you also get a new computer on your list of computers. I'm running the update right now.

Sorry if I should not be asking this here but start a new post. I figured with the recent talk of version I would ask this here.

I am currently running SETI on two Raspberry Pi's version 2. I have been running one for a while and according to my dashboard on SETI's site it says I am using boinc version 7.4.23.

Recently I had to reformat my SD card in the other Raspberry Pi and I reinstalled boinc. According to my dashboard that version is 7.6.33.
I have ran sudo apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, apt-get dist-upgrade on the older version of boinc and it has not updated the files. Is there anyway I can update boinc without having to reformat the SD card and loose my current work units?

I have been running Seti on my Raspberry Pi 2 model b and the average work unit is around 50 hours. I understand that is average and I am not trying to overclock the Pi's. What I am wondering is if the Raspberry Pi 3 complete's the work units any faster?

That is what I figured, just thought I would ask. I just checked my logs on Seti's website and the first four work units took about 50 hours to complete. Not bad considering I will be leaving this running 24/7 just for this.

I understand that the Raspberry Pi 2 is a slower computer than modern ones. Any idea how long a work unit will take on the Raspberry Pi 2? I followed this guide, https://www.element14.com/community/community/raspberry-pi/raspberrypi2/blog/2015/05/20/setihome-boinc-on-raspbian-for-raspberry-pi-2, but it took around 100 hours to finish a work unit.

I love the idea of having a Raspberry Pi just sitting around all day working on Seti units. I am using the Raspbian lite version since I don't need the GUI running and eating up process units.
