Spreading URLs like that around is a bad thing to do. It's a closed pre-release project with many many issues that are best worked out with small groups of testers... not the general public at large.

Realize by spreading around unreleased project URLs like that you can help kill a project... it's bad PR for the project administrators and all involved when unfinished work is put out there for the world at large to see. The developers have reasons for keeping the URLs quiet until release time... it's not just out of spite.

I'd just ask everybody to refrain from signing up with or spreading the URL for the project (or any other pre-release project out there) until the project is released to the public. To do so any sooner is disrespectful to the people who have put so much blood, sweat, and tears in to making it as good as it can be.

FWIW, the make clean isn't necessary; the code is already clean, as you just downloaded it.

If you're working from an already-existing code repository you keep in /usr/src, you might think about doing a 'make distclean' and a 'cvs update' instead of re-downloading the whole thing.

> make
> make install
> service boinc stop
> cp /usr/src/boinc/client/boinc_4.*_i686-pc-linux-gnu /home/boinc
> chown boinc /home/boinc/boinc_4.*_i686-pc-linux-gnu
> chgrp boinc /home/boinc/boinc_4.*_i686-pc-linux-gnu
> service boinc start
> tail /home/boinc/boinc.log -f

To get the GUI, you've got to hack things up a bit... it's not compiling under linux at the moment. Its code is in the clientgui subdirectory.

For those who don't read the S@H message boards... I got the new GUI to compile under Linux. It's looking *sweet*... it isn't difficult to crash it, was a total pain in the ass to compile it... but I love it. :-)

It's almost fully functional. The API is in a state of flux at the moment (which is what caused the crashes), so not everything is working, but it's a HUGE leap forward.

At long last, we have a GUI!
