bonjour j'essaye depuis un moment de faire fonctionner lhc@home sous linux mint directement ou en machine virtuelle mais cela me semble bien compliqué.
une âme charitable pourrait elle poster un tuto détaillé et récent avec installation étape par étape de boinc avec oracle virtualbox et le projet lhc@home.
Cela fait environ 5 fois que je recommence mais en vain.Il y a tellement de sources différentes et non récentes dans les forums que je ne sais plus quoi faire et je voudrais abandonner windows pour linux.
merci d'avance

hello I’ve been trying for a while to run lhc@home under linux mint directly or virtual machine but it seems complicated.
a charitable soul could post a detailed and recent tutorial with step-by-step installation of boinc with oracle virtualbox and the lhc@home project.
It’s been about 5 times that I start again but in vain. There are so many different and not recent sources in the forums that I no longer know what to do and I would like to abandon windows for linux.
thank you in advance

You don't say what your specific problem is, so I am just going to say what is the minimum you need to do to get boinc and virtualbox to work together.

First, you need to add your user account to group boinc. Without this, you cannot connect to the boinc client from the boinc GUI manager. I suspect (though do not know) that you will also not be able to connect to the client on the command line using boinccmd.
Next, you must add user boinc to group vboxusers. This is necessary to allow the boinc client to communicate with the virtual machines it is running. Without this, every task running in a VM will fail immediately.

I hope this is useful to you.

In the current version of boinc on Linux you need to dissable some security for VBox tasks to work.

sed -i 's/ProtectSystem=strict/ProtectSystem=full/g' /lib/systemd/system/boinc-client.service

1. That option is not even set in the version offered by opensuse. Which distro are you using; and are you using that distro's version?
2. It is not a good idea to edit systemd service files directly, as these will be overwritten at the next update. Instead, use systemctl. As root, run:
systemctl edit boinc-client.service
This will create an override file in /etc/systemd/system/boinc-client.service.d/override.conf

I use opensuse, so I do not know how to install boinc and virtualbox in Linux Mint. You may need to add one or two additional repositories to be able to do this; if necessary, you should ask in the Mint forums.

Install boinc and virtualbox. You must ensure that you have installed the boinc-client and boinc-manager as well as the libraries and the language translations. For virtualbox, you must make sure the kernel modules are installed.

Add your own user to group boinc: sudo usermod -aG boinc your_username_here
Enable boinc so it will start each time you reboot: systemctl enable boinc-client
Add user boinc to group vboxusers: sudo usermod -aG vboxusers boinc
(this step is essential to permit the boinc client to run tasks that run under vbox).

Reboot the system. Log in under your user account, and start the boinc manager. You may now proceed to add the projects you wish to run.
