I'm using gentoo linux and had the option

eselect opengl set nvidia

or

eselect opencl set nvidia

the opencl one said CUDA/OpenCL so i chose that

did i do right? (i'm assuming so cause it's running a WR task right now)

also, does anyone have experience getting the cc_config.xml file to be read in linux? boinc's folder in gentoo is /var/lib/boinc...and i have a cc_config.xml in there, but everytime i load BOINC and look at the event log...it keeps saying "No config file found...using defaults."

Check the ownership of cc_config.xml. Boinc shouldn't be running as root, and it won't be running under your user id either, so if it doesn't own the file or the file doesn't have world read access, it won't be able to read it.

The thing is, the only way I was able to get the manager to connect to the daemon was as root. Say I open a terminal and typed 'boincmgr' it would load, but wouldn't connect to the daemon (running at localhost). Say I opened a terminal then switched user to root and typed 'boincmgr' it would load, but still wouldn't connect to the daemon. The only way I was able to get it to load AND connect, was to open a terminal, switch to root, cd /usr/bin, THEN run boincmgr. I had to have /usr/bin as my working directory AS root before loading it or it wouldn't connect.

So I set up a script I'm lauching it from now:

cd /usr/bin && sudo boincmgr


and all is working fine.

I also did

chown boinc:boinc /var/lib/boinc/cc_config.xml


and boincmgr still isn't picking up the config file.

So that's where I am now, BOINC is running fine, but I can't get it to recognize a config file. The only reason I want the config file anyway is to setup exclusive applications, but it's not a big deal to pause it when needed.

So the only thing I really wanna know is will running as opengl or opencl be faster/slower or make any kind of difference?

This is for Debian, not Gentoo, but perhaps it will be helpful:

I'm scanning it for additional info, but I had used this guide originally:
