How to download
« on: 12 Apr 2008, 04:04:49 am »
Hello,

I am new to LINUX and am currently running the following:

Linux
2.6.22-3-amd64


on a:

GenuineIntel
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz [Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11]


I have downloaded the APP:

2.4L Linux 64  SSE3 INTEL 

from Crunchr's website. (http://calbe.dw70.de/linux64.html)

From here on I don't know how to install the App. Could somebody guide me through this please?

Thanks,

Nevica

from command line type:
net stop boinc
Then put files from "Files to Install" subdir of downloaded archive into seti project subdirectory of BOINC (BOINC\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\)
Then type:
net start boinc

This is for Windows. You need find out how to stop and start again boinc under Linux.

When I try and put the new files into BOINC\projects\

I get the response that I do not have permission.

Any ideas?

Hm... Did you stop boinc service before? (We talk about Windows host, right? )

Hi nevica,
you must login as superuser with the command: su
then you can change permission with
chmod -R 777 /your_foldername

this give you full acces to the folder, for better understanding read the man pages

Hello Raistmer,

sorry for the delay in getting back to you but the command:

net stop boinc

is not recognised

Returned is:

bash: net: command not found

Any ideas?

well, you use *nix system, not Windows
I wrote command line for stopping service under windows system (WinNT).

Hi nevica if you are stillaround:
Raistmer was answering a question in the "LINUX" forum with "WINDOWS" commands, even after poster stated he ran LINUX in the post. Huh?
nevica:
You have to use the "su" command or log on as "root" to add the files, if you don't want to get into changing the permissions of the BOINC folder and all the includeed files. So open a terminal and type "su" and enter password or log out and log back in as "root".
 Then you need the "PID" of the BOINC app to issue the kill command to the running app, or if you run KDE as a GUI, you could open up a command window and type " KSysguard", right click on the "boinc" app listed and kill it, or copy it's PID number listed there and issue the commands (no quotes) :
"su"
then your password
#kill (the number ilisted for Boinc in Ksysguard)
click enter

This should stop boinc.

Then you must upack the seti program file you downloaded. That would be another command on the file to unpack it.  Then use the copy command "cp", to copy the files (like the file "setiathome-5.15.i686-pc-linux-gnu"  ) downloaded  and extracted from this site to the BOINC folder sometimes located in /root/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/.
Then restart boinc by navigating to the boinc folder and in the command window type "boinc"

Hello Bot,

Thanks for your advice. Even after going into a terminal and logging on as su and then stopping BOINCmgr by using the killl command I cannot access the projects file within the BOINC installation. I find the projects file at:

/var/lib/boinc-client

and it is a root volume.

Surely logging on as SU should allow me access?   

I suspect that there may be other programs that I have to kill but I don't know which they are.

Thanks,

Nevica
