From time to time I see references here to optimized BOINC clients. I have tried to follow up on some of the links provided, & I found that interesting, but I'd still like to ask some questions of poeple here who have actual experience with such clients running with E@H.

(1) Has anyone run such a Windows BOINC client under WINE & which one?

(2) Has anyone here modified such a client himself (herself)? Would it be feasible for me to get such a client & strip out all the benchmark & credit calculations & replace them by a statement that sets the credit for every unit to 70? I ask this question because I use BOINC only with E@H, & all those benchmark & credit calculations are just aggravating, erroneous & useless nonsense for what I do.

{I do not intend any criticism of people developing more sensible & accurate benchmarking & crediting for BOINC. I agree that is important for BOINC in general usage. It is just not important for me.]

I use this Boinc 5.2.13 Windows SSE2 - but on Windows XP. It works great!

This may be a naive question, but, if you can get the standard BOINC client to run under WINE, why wouldn't an optimized client, compiled from the same code, also run under WINE (assuming you get the proper instruction set match for your processor) ???

My experience with running BOINC clients under WINE is that some standard version numbers work & some don't. Sometimes I find it necessary to drop back to an old version to get running.
