BOINC is an open-source software platform for computing using volunteered resources.

Starting with BOINC and SETI:

1. Download and install the BOINC Client tardist from the Nekoware repository. http://www.mechanics.citg.tudelft.nl/~everdij/nekoware/current/neko_boinc_client-5.4.9.tardist

2. Register with SETI@home to obtain an account key. http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/create_account_form.php

3. Run it with the invocation arguments '-attach_project http://setiathome.berkeley.edu <account key>'

4. - Let it run through the CPU benchmarks, etc and stop it when it quiets down.

5. - Install the SETI tardist from your favorite Nekoware repository.

6. - Blank the 'min_rpc_time' number in the client_state.xml and rerun the client.

Notes and Errata

Make sure you run the client from: /usr/nekoware/boinc
