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?
