1) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Running BOINC under WINE (Message 53354)
Posted 98 days ago by Profile tullio
I have 6 Virtual Machines on my Windows 10 PC. One of them is a SuSE Leap 42.1, the latest SuSE release, which I use as a tester of Leap. On this I have loaded a second tier Virtual Box and run vLHC@home of CERN, with good results.

Use Virtual Box and install a Windows Virtual Machine. I have a Windows 10 PC with 6 Linux Virtual Machines on it to run CERN projects.

Other providers in Italy are Fastweb, which has fiber connections, and Vodafone. I am keeping Telecomitalia for historical reasons, since I am registered in about 100 sites with my mail account and I don't want to change it.CPDN is the only site which has boycotted me at times.

Telecomitalia is my ISP. Once I was banned from an Oxford link on this site because they said Telecomitalia was not responding to their requests. No other BOINC site has made any objection to me, including CERN, Berkeley, the Albert Einstein Institute etc. So maybe they are just suspicious of anybody in Italy.

I am Tullio and do not see the problem. I am running 5 CERN projects on this Windows 10 PC using Virtual Box 5.0.10, plus a SuSE Linux Virtual Leap 42.1 just to try it, and a Solaris 11.3 mostly for nostalgy, since it has no BOINC projects. I do not advice to install Leap as a Linux Virtual Machine since its BOINC client and Boinc manager do not work. I have two Linux boxes running SuSE 13.1 and 13.2 and one of them runs 32-bit CPDN projects. Maybe Ubuntu Linux is easier for a Windows user, also the Linux BOINC client is developed on it.
I am eighty too, so don't be afraid.

They are also slow, at least on my Windows 10 PC with 20 GB RAM and 2 TB disk. It is true that it hosts also VirtualBox 5.0.10 and 4 BOINC CERN projects, plus the CERN 2015 Challenge outside BOINC.
7) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Running CPDN from 64bit Linux (Message 52949)
Posted 161 days ago by Profile tullio
Of my six BOINC projects only ATLAS@home and CMS-dev require a 64-bit Linux. All others use 32-bit Linux apps. My two Linux boxes run 32-bit OS, although one has a 64-bit CPU. My 64-bit Windows 10 CPU runs three 64-bit Linux Virtual Machines, one 64-bit Solaris Virtual machine and one 32-bit Virtual Machine, vLHC@home. CERN has said it will update vLHC@home but so far it has not happened. The CERN 2015 Challenge, not a BOINC project. uses 64-bit Linux Virtual Machine. I am running a CPDN task on this SuSE Linux 32-bit host, plus vlHC@home. SETI@home runs 32-bit on my other Linux box, together with Einstein@home. Both SETI@home and Einstein@home run on the 64-bit Windows 10 PC.
8) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Latest Ubuntu Trusty 12.04 kernel update bad for CPDN on AMD64 (Message 52909)
Posted 168 days ago by Profile tullio
I am running the 4.1.12-1-default kernel on my AMD A10-6700 CPU. The kernel is the default of the Leap 42.1 SuSE release. So far it only runs in a Virtual machine on my Windows 10 PC, and crunches vLHC@home.
9) Questions and Answers : Windows : Detaching (Message 52823)
Posted 178 days ago by Profile tullio
My Windows 10 is being updated every month, so I have to suspend all BOINC work on it. I have also to restart manually the CERN 2015 Challenge running on Virtual Box after every reboot.

Vox clamantis in deserto. Use Virtual Box, it is free.
