It looks like you are missing "libnsl".

BTW, you don't need to reinstall Drake, just go to control center, software updates, and do a search for libnsl or just nsl, then install that package. You could also just type "rpm

You could also check if the library is installed but not properly linked by doing something like a 'ls -Ral /lib/ | grep nsl".

On another note, did you see this http://setiboinc.ssl.berkeley.edu/ap/fo ... hp?id=2489 When I asked you what optimizations you used, this is what I was talking about.

Ahah, after a bit more googling, it looks like it may be an issue with your version of GCC. type "gcc -v" and tell me what it outputs. I am using gcc 3.3 for your info.

gcc version = 3.3.1

&

[root@localhost root]# ls -Ral /lib/ | grep nsl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 69440 Aug 29 2003 libnsl-2.3.2.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Mar 15 06:18 libnsl.so.1 -> libnsl-2.3.2.so*

Well, I'll be:eek:

I went snooping around in the BOINC message boards and found this page:
http://setiboinc.ssl.berkeley.edu/ap/fo ... hp?id=1375

in which someone says to do a make -i while compiling the seti_boinc client. I tried it with the BOINC client and it worked! I have an executable. Now I just have to try to compile the seti_boinc client.

Let's see.......;)

I am actually installing a Drake10 box today, so I will attempt to compile boinc and see what I get from it....

EDIT: Whoa, synchronicity... we posted at the same second almost... Great you got it to work! I will still go ahead with my new drake box too to see what happens.

Unfortunately when I try to unzip the client I get the following:

[root@localhost client]# gunzip boinc_2.19_i686-pc-linux-gnu.gz

gunzip: boinc_2.19_i686-pc-linux-gnu.gz: unexpected end of file
[root@localhost client]#

any ideas?

hmmm that is wierd... I actually used the client that was built but not gzipped, just the boinc_2.19_i686-pc-linux-gnu file...

The mandrake install turned into a Gentoo install so no news there, except for two new Gentoo boxes crunching boinc for us!

I may just install gentoo on that machine. :) Where did you find Mandrake 10? The latest release, I thought, was 9.2 and that was still kinda beta.

I imagine that if I install gentoo I may have an easier time compiling BOINC and you have it and it works so you'll be able to help me.

I really appreciate all the help you've given me so far. I don't think I'm going to get it installed on Mandrake however so being that I don't have anything important on that partition I'll just wipe it and start with a fresh install of gentoo...just have to locate it;)

gentoo looks a little cryptic...having the following (and trying to keep my WinXP on the machine) what should I download?

AMD AthlonXP 2000+

I see in reading the documentation at the gentoo site that there are three stages to choose from depending on your need for choices and control and several architectures are supported. I have AthlonXP which I saw in there.

What to do with a file that looks like this:
stage2-athlon-xp-20040218.tar.bz2

Or, should I just download the iso and burn it to a CD?
packages-athlon-xp-2004.0.iso

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/h ... xml?part=1

specifically: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/h ... #doc_chap2
use that guide for installing. It is NOT like installing mandrake, it is a CLI install, not GUI. You boot first with a liveCD (like knoppix), and then you partition and mount your hard drives, then chroot into your clean partitions and install everything.

I would suggest a stage 1 install, to learn the most possible in the first go. Beware: this can take upwards of 60 hours when you include Xfree, KDE and Gnome. This is the only way to build a optimized GCC and compile your entire system from scratch. Read the docs, they are awesomely written, and the forum always has the answers.
March 10th, 2004 - Mandrakelinux 10.0 Community ISO download - ISO images of Mandrakelinux 10.0 Community are now publicly available on a number of FTP mirrors! Mandrakeclub Silver Members (and above) are granted access to a "PowerPack-like" 3-CD version of Mandrakelinux 10.0 Community which provides many supplementary add-ons such as NVIDIA drivers, Acrobat Reader, Real Player and others, as well as a 4th and 5th CD with extra applications. Corporate Club Members are granted access to a downloadable DVD ISO of Mandrakelinux which includes supplementary add-ons such as NVIDIA drivers, Acrobat Reader, Real Player and others.

Well, who the hell knows what I did but I finally got the BOINC client compiled after doing away with the dual-boot (WinXP/Mandrake) and resurfacing the whole drive with Mandrake 9.2. This wasn't for a lack of trying to install gentoo, Mandrake 10, and Red Hat 9...lol.:rolleyes:

I did get the BOINC client compiled and it is running but I couldn't get the SETI@home app to compile. So I just downloaded the app with the self-compiled BOINC client.

Anyway, it's about time for Spring Quarter to start so I won't have any more time to mess around with that. Whatever works is my attitude now. Maybe with the self-compiled BOINC client it will run a few seconds faster...I'll let everyone know.

Thanks again SvladC for all your help! I really appreciate it.

Update:

When I got home this morning I noticed that the last three returned wu's on the self-compiled BOINC client were all around 4 hours! ;)

You can now see in real-time what BOINC is doing if you use Linux!

Check out the following link, which I found on the BOINC message boards:

http://www.davidzilch.co.uk/boincstat/

It is very easy to get going. I actually compiled it on my first attempt...not that it was as complicated as compiling BOINC. All that's required is using make...well, all the instructions are there. If it was that easy to write a program which would monitor BOINC under Linux I'm wondering why nobody jumped on it sooner.

Have at it!

Mark;)

Nice Mark.. one of my self compiled boincs running on the bleeding edge 2.6.4 kernel series is ripping through units in 2-2.5 hours each! AthlonXP 2500+ 265MB RAM.

I will try out that boinc stats... I wish they had a nice interface like setispy... maybe I will write one, been meaning to get into QT programming.

What bloody geeks we are! LOL! Imagine is this 7+ years ago, and I just installed gentoo on a VM A few days ago.

True dat!Image

How many moved sharing their extra cycles from seti to bitcoin a couple years ago? How many wish they had? lol

Too late now, but back then it wasn't that hard to crack them out - or so I heard. I missed it - dismissed it as a fad/scam.
