I have to blame my non existing Linux skills for that, maybe in combination with use of Firefox - as I'm Norwegian, I'm more used to Opera :-).

I thought the dl file ended up on my desktop. Apparently not. I now have dl the linked file on a Windows PC and unzipped it, and I see it's a different version then the one I played with yesterday night (Norwegian time).
I'll sort this out when I'm home from work.

Thanks for pointing my mistakes out for me!

Some time ago I tested crunching yoyo and GPUgrid.
I still had the extracted files on desktop.
I copied the boincmgr file I had in that folder. Seems to work as I got 25 tasks.
Only running two in parallell.

Thanks for you reply
Re:
Then run:
./boinc_client
--> Works ok :-)

Then open another terminal, and go to the boinc directory and run:
./boincmgr

--> Do not work, I only have
boinc_client
and
boinc_cmd
in that folder.
Should I dl some more or is my extraction faulty somehow?

I hope somebody will use some lines to explain me how to get this working. As I am sure you will find out shortly Linux is not my way of life yet :-)
I have two PS3 with YDL 6.2 which I have used for dcnet and would like to try on this project, but my Linux knowledge stops me.

I downloaded BOINC client for the PS3 from here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NPZZ5TX7 and put on the desktop. I right click on boinc6219_10.linux-ps3.tar.gz and choose Exctract here.
I got a folder called opt and a subfolder called boinc
Inside boinc I have folders: doc, lib and projects
Inside boinc I have files: boinc_clinet and boinc_cmd

I opened a Terminal and typed gedit .bash_profile and edit file to be:
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin
export PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/boinc/lib ; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Save and close, then double clicked on boinc_client
I get 4 new files in folder but nothing more seems to happend:
client_state.xml
gui_rpc_auth.cfg
lockfile
time_stats_log
I expected some graphical user interface as I am used to from Windows...

So I added cc_config.xml as suggested somewhere in this forum, but no luck.

Then I deleted the 4 files made, rebooted and played a bit more with the .bash_profile file as put in doc\install i.e. my understanding of how to do it:
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/boinc/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export PATH

but still not luck :-(

I tried to install the 64 bit library mentioned:
sudo yum install libstdc++.ppc64
but got an error saying: Roald is not in the sudoers file
So I ran it with su
I got the library installed.
But still the same happends with 4 files generated and nothing more

So obviously I miss something.

I wonder if I need to to the rest in doc\install - it seems to be all about SETI...

Thanks in advance!
