I tried to install the native theory app following the instructions here:

https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=4971

I could install CVMFS with no problems and it's running ok, but when running the last instructions:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart boinc-client


boinc-client fails to restart, with the message:

Job for boinc-client.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status boinc-client.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.


"systemctl status boinc-client.service" gives:

Message 44004 - Posted: 26 Dec 2020, 17:07:37 UTC - in response to Message 44003.  

I deleted /sbin/create-boinc-cgroup and /etc/systemd/system/boinc-client.service and this time BOINC started and I obtained a couple of Theory workunits.

Since this machine runs 24/7 there should not be much problem not having suspend/resume in the application.
