I've installed the latest boinc client available in the FreeBSD ports. I can not get the client to get any work because the platform is not recognized.

2006-01-13 00:21:51 [Einstein@Home] Deferring communication with project for 23 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds

Is there any I can do about this, or is FreeBSD unusable for this project?

Regards,
Casey

FreeBSD support

There is a team working on a HOWTO to get the Linux App running on FreeBSD. However it just so happens that I finished to build a FreeBSD App (from "albert" code) a few hours ago which will be available in the next days (or might be hours) after a bit of testing. Watch out for an updated Beta Test page.
