Anybody

Can You help me run boinc. I can uncompress it but can't seem to run it using terminal. I need someone to help me run through the process step by step so I may use seti and einstein.

When you have downloaded the client (I assume 4.19 from the boinc / E@H site) just by clicking on it, you should have it on your Desktop. So please open a Terminal and type at the prompt (or copy from here and paste it into the terminal):

[pre]
mkdir BOINC
mv Desktop/boinc_4.19_powerpc-apple-darwin BOINC
cd BOINC
chmod +x ./boinc_4.19_powerpc-apple-darwin
./boinc_4.19_powerpc-apple-darwin
[/pre]

The program will prompt you for the URL and the account key. Copy them from the email you got from Einstein@Home and paste them into the termial window (one by one when asked).

Let the client run the benchmark. Then press ctrl-C. The client will (gracefully) terminate. Then type

[pre]
./boinc_4.19_powerpc-apple-darwin -attach_project
[/pre]

It will prompt you for the URL and key of another project. Copy & paste the info for SETI this time. Be aware that SETI is cureently unstable, so don't worry too much if the client can't make contact with the server.

Congartulations! You're done!

To terminate the client, type ctrl-c again. To start it again, open a Terminal and type

[pre]
cd BOINC ; ./boinc_4.19_powerpc-apple-darwin
[/pre]

You shouldn't have to enter the URL and key information again.
