Hi everybody,

more as one year BOINC was running on Mac OS X Leopard without any problems as a daemon. Yesterday occured somewhere else a problem (rights). I solved the problem, but I had to reinstall BOINC. Since Apple moved to launchd I had to use the plist file for this purpose. The problem is that the plist floods the log with the following error message:

05.04.09 18:43:27[1] (edu.berkeley.boinc[1666]) Bug: launchd_core_logic.c:3108 (23714):2: chdir(j->workingdir) != -1
05.04.09 18:53:33 [0x0-0x1c01c].edu.berkeley.boinc[138] Using wxWidgets 2.8.7.

05.04.09 19:02:53 /Applications/[129] CPSGetProcessInfo(): This call is deprecated and should not be called anymore.

BOINC doesnt start and the BOINC-Mannager tells me that he can’t connect. If I remove the plist from /Library/LaunchDaemons BOINC works fine.

My edu.berkeley.boinc.plist (just in case there is somewhere a typo which I don’t see):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>/Library/Application\ Support/BOINC\ Data/</string>

Any ideas what to do. in order to get the daemon back?


  • Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.6
  • BOINC-Manager 6.2.18
