Topic 190897

Hello,

I have my win2k box running boinc.
I have just installed the latest freebsd boinc port and am trying to attache to the einstein project.

I try :

./boinc-client -attach_project http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu 2a8da67fcd50824610f4da0cfedf726f

but I get:
2006-03-13 15:37:37 [Einstein@Home] Message from server: Invalid or missing account key. Visit this project's web site to get an account key.
BOINC failed to log in to http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/.
Please check your account key and try again.

The key I am using is the cross platform ID key that is displayed in my account page on einstein@home.

Am I missing some software at all.
I have not got any projects currently running on freebsd - einstein is my first attempt.

Is there a list of compatible project that work with FreeBSD somewhere and perhaps instructions on how to get them going?

Many Thanks

Will

Behemoth,

The key in question is the key that you received from the project via email, not the cross-project id.

Great! I have an error

Message 25781 in response to message 25780

Great!

I have an error message:
2006-03-13 17:02:14 [Einstein@Home] Message from server: platform 'i386-portbld-freebsd5.4' not found

Do I need to install these two files:
app_info.xml
albert_0.40_i386-unknown-freebsd

Found on this page:
http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/app_test.php

In this download:
albert_0.40_i386-unknown-freebsd.tgz

into this folder:
into:
/usr/local/lib/boinc/projects/einstein.phys.uwm.edu

to get the i386-portbld-freebsd5.4 platform recognised?

Please see these instructions

Please see these instructions http://people.freebsd.org/~pav/boinc.html

The ports will hit the official tree as soon as ports freeze is lifted (should be next week).

Did you check the file permissions. The "albert" application must be executable for the user running BOINC.

Can you try to execute albert

Can you try to execute albert by hand? I mean, go to the directory where it lives, and do ./albert_0.40_i386-unknown-freebsd. It should execute without error message and return to the command line immediately.

Also check under which system user you are running the client, and that all files in data directory are owned by this user.

Some shared library is missing. Maybe Pav knows what to do.

Yup - compat4x libraries are

Yup - compat4x libraries are not started. Make sure you have

compat4x_enable="YES"

in /etc/rc.conf, and then start them with rc script

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/000.compat4x.sh start

should work.
