Compiled Boinc using Claggy's instructions.

Have about googled this one to death.

Nice thing is runs cool!

As to first post I meant ARM not AMD :D

What does the Boinc startup

What does the Boinc startup in the Event Log say? It could be that you're not allocating enough memory to run four tasks, mine is set to 75% when in use, 90% when not in use,
My Boinc startup, I'm presently running four Setiathome tasks, when is suspend them all, and grab four Einstein tasks, all four start:

Thanks Claggy, increasing

Thanks Claggy, increasing memory use at idle to 75% fixed it. All 4 cores loaded now. :-)

I also seem to be having a problem with the /etc/fftw/wisdomf file being read. After 18 hours it is showing 86% progress.

As per other thread I made sure file and directory were readable by Boinc.

Cheers!

Somewhere someone asked about

Somewhere someone asked about power draw on RPi2. Using Kill-a-watt I get 2 watts and 50.8 degrees C. That is with 4 NEON tasks without, I presume, the wisdomf file which loads the CPU more. If I get that part working I will retest the power draw and temps.

Other than better completion times is there another way of telling when Boinc sees the wisdomf file?

Cheers!

The wisdomf version (3.3.2 shown above) has to match the version of fftw that you used when the app was compiled. If they don't match it doesn't use it.

The run time should be around 15 hours for a 1Ghz Pi2 with the wisdomf if its working.

The only issue I have with

The only issue I have with building boinc is that it won't automatically start on my Raspberry Pi when it boots up. I have to type:

sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client start

All the files look like they are in the right places. It just doesn't start. What am I missing?

I also have to manually start mine and the init.d won't shut boinc down either. Not a big deal to me although being able to stop it running gracefully would be nice.

I shut down my RP12 to take it off the Kill-a-watt and when it started back up it was generating more heat. A it found the wisdomf file and is now finishing in 14 hours. I had restarted the Pi several times so why it is working now I dunno. But I am not complaining. :-)

4 validate errors in one day. All seem to have had problems with co-pilot as well. Just bad luck or a problem with my Pi?http://einsteinathome.org/host/11922358/tasks&offset=0&show_names=1&state=4&appid=0
