Hello,

My attempt to run boinc on my FreeBSD box is becoming a nightmare, maybe someone can help. I've been trying to get it to run all night but no success.

I have a FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE machine and installed boinc-client and boinc-einsteinathome from current ports tree, with the WITHOUT_X11 option set (I just want the command line because it's a server).

The client is started at system startup in /etc/rc.conf :
Code:
boinc_enable="YES"
boinc_flags="-no_gui_rpc"


I managed to attach the client to the einstein project, as shown here:
Code:
root@dirkd: ~# boinc_client -show_projects

However no data is being crunched, my cpu is still idle :-( Also I've never been able to use the boinc-cmd command properly:
Code:
root@dirkd: ~# boinc_cmd --get_state connect: Can't assign requested address
can't connect to local host


After half a day of trying I've given up, and no man page or webpage I can find is very helpful in this environment. If someone might be able to help me I can still give Boinc a try.

Thanks

Have you tried to start the boinc client with the -update_prefs option ?
Could you please post the full messages from a complete start of the boinc client.

It look like your boinc client has a problem to bind or resolv localhost, which could cause be the problems with the boinc_cmd
