I just set up a Raspi2 from

I just set up a Raspi2 from a recent Raspbian image and found the scaling_governor set to "powersave" . Not what you want for BOINC.

Merely installing the cpufrequtils switched it to ondemand. Go figure.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cpufrequtils

Anyway, the cpufreq-info tool (installed with this package) will tell you the current status (and statistics on the history of settings) of the clock rate in a human readable form.

Cheers

OS is Raspian Wheezy. Temp is 32.5c . Due to a 120mm fan(powered by neighbouring motherboard). I'm doing the "sudo apt-get install cpufrequtils" now. I'll let you know how it goes and thank you for all of your help! OS is Raspian

Hi Folks,

is there are any Document for Newbies to install Step by Step a E@H on RPi2?
I will get my RPi2 on Monday and I would read a little bit before I make
mistakes! ;-)

I installed Boinc via

I installed Boinc via repositories, apt-get install boinc, then I compiled Boinc as per Claggy's instructions here:
http://einsteinathome.org/node/198011&nowrap=true#139439
and copied the binaries from the compile over the ones installed from repositories.

Copy from ~/boinc/client/boinc and ~/boinc/boinccmd

Copy to /usr/bin/boinc and /usr/bin/boinccmd

sudo cp ~/boinc/client/boinc /usr/bin/boinc

The master source code repository has recently been moved to github. Change the section I've highlighted to

https://github.com/BOINC/boinc.git

short update for ID:

short update for ID: 12003176

-jessie running (1 Kernel Panic so far), cold boot, WU's not crashed! My Fault ;-)
-Boinc updated self to Ver. 7.4.23 without hands on ???
-wisdom file is created
-overclocked to Pi2 1000MHz Temp 62,1° C with 4 WU's running
-getting 4 new WU's Ver 1.42 NEON
-4 WU's still running at Ver. 1.06
-boinctasks shows left runtime of about 14h

so far so good, I've to wait until the fist WU's are completed.
Anything to do, to not running into errors?

BTW: I'm not able to prevent the system from starting up with the GUI (startx).
Neither raspi-config nor editing /etc/inittab helps! Any Ideas? I don't want to
waste Systemresources! ;-)

I've reported the problem of

I've reported the problem of the Boinc client not displaying the Arm CPU model, it's been fixed, and backported into the 7.2, 7.4. and 7.6 heads,

If you want the fix applied to a self compiled client you should compile Boinc from the 7.2, 7.4 or 7.6 head and not a tagged client_release, use one of the following:

git checkout client_release/7/7.2

git checkout client_release/7/7.4

git checkout client_release/7/7.6
