Topic 224606

I've just setup boinc on some of my Raspberry pi's.  A couple of zeros and a pi400. It seems to be working fine, though I had some trouble with einstein on my pi zeros, it seems the binaries in the tasks sent to the zeros only work on Rasbian Jessie? perhaps they just haven't been compiled for buster yet? The pi400 is working fine on Buster however.

So i'm just looking for some advice on optimal raspberry pi setup for einstein tasks.  The tasks don't seem to be using a lot of ram, but i don't know how much its writing to and from the drive, I'd like to avoid that for the most part as frequent output to the SD card can wear it out in pretty short order. 

So do einstein tasks write to disk a lot? if so would it be feasible to setup a ram drive for this, given that the pi zero only has 512mb ram?

The main problem is they aren't being seen as an "ARMv7" device, if you look at the one that is working it IS recognized but the other's are not.

ARM
(1 processors)

 

ARM
ARMv7 Processor rev 3 (v7l) [Impl 0x41 Arch 7 Variant 0x0 Part 0xd08 Rev 3]
(4 processors)

You MAY be able to try using the anonymous stuff like I am but I don't know enough to help you get there from where you are. I do know there is something you can type to tell Einstein to recognize your account  look here for how:

This thread has alot of info about RaspPi's too:

And in fact your question may be answered much quicker if you close this thread and post it over there, that way you can benefit from others and others newbies can benefit from your trials too
