VirtualBox with boinc

Post by dusan » 2020/10/13 15:29:26

Hello,

to initialize VirtualBox for BOINC on CENTOS 7 is possible following way:

sudo service boinc-client stop
mkdir -p ${HOME}/boinc
boinc -dir ${HOME}/boinc

sudo service boinc-client start
boincmgr

but I have two questions:
- It is interesting that after the above cases, the BOINC program always asks for a project, it does not remember it. How to prevent it?

- the above commands work only with active user involvement, the initialization process can be inserted into the background, but after
logging off user, the process ends. How to prevent it?

Thank you for your advice.

Regards,
Dusan

Never used boinc, but C7 uses systemd so this
is the normal way to start and enable a service:
systemctl start "servicename"
systemctl enable "servicename"

O.K.,

my mistake, I always used systemctl... But the result is same.
