As a member of Team Canada http://teamcanada.freeforums.org/index.php I have been promoting puppy in their forum and its nice to see a simple alternative to the old .sh file.
It works great.
Many thanks

PostPosted: Sat 23 Aug 2008, 21:17    Post subject: Boinc on puppy 4.0
Subject description: issues with starting automatically and running in background
 

Bear with me, fairly new to linux, and Puppy Linux is a great welcome surprise.

I need some help though with the following:

Issues that need resolving regarding Puppy 4.00 and Boinc:
(Wolf Pup's boinc-6.2.15.pet )

1. Instructions for launching boinc client at startup via rc.local dont work.
Boot hangs at rc.local and exits to bash prompt.
The text file included in the pet file mentions 2 lines need to be
added and shows only one.

2. After puppy loads to desktop, running boinc manager loads the application and
starts the client. Exit the manager, and the client exits also without saving current
state of task. Upon restarting the computer and relaunching boinc manager, the client
reports "computation error" of the current task and moves on to start a new task.

3. Running "/usr/lib/BOINC/run_client" in rxvt console after the desktop loads starts the
client just fine. When you run boinc manager everthing seems fine, exit boinc manager and
the client remains running. That's good. Close the rxvt console running the client
(window close), exits the client without first saving data and state to harddrive
resulting in "computation error" on next client start.
However, pressing "ctrl+c" exits the client properly.

4. Restarting the computer with boinc client running causes the client to be killed by sigterm without client state and data first being written to harddrive. Again, resulting in task corruption.

Conclusion: a nice way of starting and shutting down boinc client properly is needed.


I am using Puppy 4.0 in the hopes of being able to setup some computers to autorun
BOINC without monitors, keyboards, or mice. The way things work now, I cannot leave them
unattended and any interuption in power would just make a mess of things.

Hope you can help. Thanks in advance.

hmm, make sure you got at least 250mb of free space, or it will give errors.

in rc.local the client starts at boot, without typing anything extra.

Try uninstalling BOINC and deleting the folder /usr/lib/BOINC and reinstall BOINC.

I use this sript in init.d to start and stop Boinc.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# /etc/init.d/boinc
# Start/stop/restart

test -x /usr/BOINC/boinc || exit 0

case "$1" in
start)
echo "Starting BOINC."
cd "/usr/BOINC" && exec ./run_client >>stdoutdae.txt 2>>stderrdae.txt &
;;
stop)
echo "Stopping BOINC."
killall boinc
;;
restart)
killall boinc
sleep 2
cd "/usr/BOINC" && exec ./run_client >>stdoutdae.txt 2>>stderrdae.txt &
;;
*)
echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/boinc {start|stop|restart}"
exit 2
esac
exit 0


Copy the script to a new file in /etc/init.d/. Change the paths so that they corresponds to your system and change the file to executable. This way your Boinc install will start automatically at startup.

Thanks so much for the info. everything working nice now.
I did make a mistake not putting the "&" after the line for boinc, fixed that.
the script provided looks good, will give a go.

wolfpup, is it only one line from the text file required?

Thanks so much for the quick reponse Smile

Hey Wolfpup
Just to let you all know, that download link is not up right now. I've tried it a few times this weekend. Eric is still working on that server.
I have it here through MSN's Skydrive
boinc-6.2.15.pet

howdy
that is an error that i have not seen. I have been running boinc in puppy for a couple of years. If you use the .pet listed above then running it in terminal isn't necessary. It runs from a gui listed in your menu under "Utility". it looks and acts the same as the windows version. And I have never had errors of any kind.
if you aren't using the .pet then check out the second post of mine here
http://teamcanada.freeforums.org/puppy-linux-rules-t203.html
It uses the older style installation.
And should you need any help, please PM me there or here or Uncle Zaps forum in my sig.. I will gladly help.

When I had errors, Wolf_pup suggested that I increase the Personal file size. That did the trick and Bionic has been working very well since then.
