Topic 224192

I have my older Intel 990X up and running again with Linux Mint 20 and my original RTX 2060 GPU back where it belongs.  Now that it is up and running I need to make a few changes to my BOINC program running on it.

It has been so long I'm having trouble remembering (ol' man jokes aside) where the BOINC files are so I can modify the <cc_config.xml> and <app-info.xml> files.  I know that the BOINC file itself is in the "home" directory, but it has nothing other than two files in it... unless they are 'hidden', in which case I don't have a clue what to do next.  I also made some changes to the BOINC local directory in BOINC Manager so it didn't mess with the web based files used in my 3950X running Windows 10.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For cc_config.xml try

For cc_config.xml try /etc/boinc-client.

For app_config.xml  try /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/<project name>  where <project name> for Einstein

is "einstein.phys.uwm.edu"  (no quotes).

Joe, I have forgotten to say "Thank You!".

You've been very helpful.

You're welcome. I just

You're welcome.

I just recently started using Mint on a few virtual machines (VirtualBox).  Mint is a very nice distribution.  I normally run Windows 10.

I too want to try running Linux Mint 20 either in a VirtualBox or as a dual boot with Windows 10.  I haven't decided yet.

Hi, Just wanted to throw

Hi,

Just wanted to throw in another 2 cents worth.

In my Ubuntu Linux, the working data is in /var/lib/boinc-client.

Here is a two-level tree:

/var/lib/boinc-client$ tree -L 2

## have to use use sudo to get permissions to list...

# tree -L 2
