Install BOINC in Linux

Post by Contact »

Install via PPA



To install via PPA just open up Terminal and run the following commands:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costamagnagianfranco/boinc

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
To add BOINC go to Ubuntu Software and install; this will be the version you just setup above.

Then later update it with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get upgrade
If you get the following error when starting BOINC:

BOINC Manager - Daemon Start Failed.

BOINC Manager (Pre-release) is not able to start a BOINC client.

Please run the client and try again

Run the following command (and then restart BOINC):

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl start boinc-client
And to see the current status for BOINC Client use:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl status boinc-client
--

Thanks to Vitalii (BOINC developer) for most of this info.
