boinc: No protocol specified[solved, sort of]

Unread postby dandelot » Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:43 am

Boinc users with headless systems (including me with xu4) have
complained here in Issues and elsewhere about the /var/log/boincerr.log
file growing once per second saying No protocol specified.
For example in search.php?keywords=no+protocol&fid%5B0%5D=99

An intrepid boinc user has tracked that nonsense down to a few lines the boinc-client software
that is attempting to determine if X-windows is idle or not. Ignoring the fact
no windows are present.
The code is fairly new that causes the problem.

The details are on
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_th ... p?id=82973

So. We all hope the boinc folks will fix this.
Anyone can build their own boinc client, see the setiathome thread for the details...
but don't expect it to be easy.

The link to this forum that I just gave was...nonfunctional.
Not that it matters much.
viewtopic.php?f=99&t=30527
should work.
