First of all do Advanced View and quit Boinc Manager if running.

In terminal do

Code: Select all

cat /usr/local/bin/boinc_mgr
ps -e | grep boinc
cd  /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC
boincmgr

Boinc Manager NOT running.

and behind it is the 'normal' basic BManager window saying:

@wacojohn

Met this situation before of two managers running. According to the output, manager was still running before the code block was done.

NB Closing window does not terminate boinc manager. Boinc manager a bit of a tricky customer. To terminate manager have to do: View > Advanced View > File > Exit BOINC Manager > OK

Also scan task bar for boinc icon, right click and choose close.

According to output, boinc client is running, so should be able to connect. First we have to ensure we are rid of them managers:

Code: Select all

pkill boincmgr; ps -e | grep boincmgr
Ensure boincmgr does not show up in output, otherwise repeat with:

Code: Select all

pkill -9 boincmgr; ps -e | grep boincmgr
Think I know how you could have gone off the rails, very easy to do if not on your guard. :) When doing Run (Alt+F2), all the letters of boinc_mgr have to be entered. No auto completion! Then there will appear Run boinc_mgr, which can then be clicked upon.

So without any boincmgr running, redo:
  • Run (Alt+F2): boinc_mgr
  • 5c(ii) & 5c(iii) of 2nd Post this Thread
Btw. FF OK?

Perhaps. My recollection is that I looked first .. no BOINC icon on task bar ... but maybe I am wrong.

Quite right, .. but my BManager ask if it should just close Manager or close it AND the client. I always say close both. In any case, I am the weak link ... so anything is possible.
According to output, boinc client is running, so should be able to connect.
Would not and cannot argue that.

First we have to ensure we are rid of them managers:

Code: Select all

pkill boincmgr; ps -e | grep boincmgr

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC# pkill boincmgr; ps -e | grep boincmgr
root@porteus:/mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC#
Ensure boincmgr does not show up in output, otherwise repeat with:

Code: Select all

pkill -9 boincmgr; ps -e | grep boincmgr

I do Alt+F2 and a window opens titled APPLICATION FINDER. I TYPE in

Code: Select all

boinc_mgr
click LAUNCH and eventually BManager opens. I exit BManager from Advanced window .. telling it to terminate client .... unless it ERRORS in which case, it instantly closes at the basic window.

In any case, I am reasonably certain it is NOT running now.


So without any boincmgr running, redo:
  • Run (Alt+F2): boinc_mgr
  • 5c(ii) & 5c(iii) of 2nd Post this Thread
Btw. FF OK?
BManager opened .. advanced window ... status disconnected.
FF looks fine.

All this was superfluous!

Pretty sure there was no BM running, then BM started as requested, and that there was also a client running. Then all was needed 5c(ii) and 5c(iii).
I exit BManager from Advanced window .. telling it to terminate client .... unless it ERRORS in which case, it instantly closes at the basic window.
This was not the way explained, which was:
View > Advanced View > File > Exit BOINC Manager > OK

Now there is no client, so no connection.
  1. Sart up client:

    Code: Select all

    ps -e | grep boinc
    boinc --dir /mnt/da1/disk/BOINC --daemon
  2. Quit BM (the way explained)
  3. Run: boinc_mgr
  4. Do 5c(ii) and 5c(iii) of 2nd Post

^ All is almost as it should be, except for the fact that boincmgr was run as root, when this was not specified. Did not want it run as root, therefore put it in different code block.

(The changes folder has been significantly reduced and also shown that changes are not affecting boinc. Contents of changes may no longer be giving trouble during booting.)

Now we have to try and repair damage by doing:
  1. Quit BM
  2. As root:

    Code: Select all

    pkill boincmgr; ps -e | grep boincmgr
    Ensure boincmgr does not show up in output, otherwise repeat as root:

    Code: Select all

    pkill -9 boincmgr; ps -e | grep boincmgr
  3. As root
    1. Code: Select all

      ls -lR /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC/*|grep root
    2. If root showed up in output of (a), fix by (as root):

      Code: Select all

      chown -R guest:guest /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC
  4. As guest:

Boinc Manager is open ... blank, white window .. status disconnected. Let's give it at least one more try. I THINK I might have screwed up this most recent exercise and I deeply apologize. I am seriously trying to follow all your instructions. Most of the time, I am not sure about what I am doing, ... but I think I can get us through. Just know there is a possibility ON THIS run, I messed up.

When trying to make a video smaller, or merge videos only have a vague idea of what I am doing, so have to follow instructions to the letter. Suggest the instructions be printed out on PAPER and then ticked off one by one as they are done.

Epilog

Except for quitting BM, seems instructions done as requested. So
  1. Quit BM
    1. Check if boinc running

      Code: Select all

      ps -e | grep boinc
    2. If no boinc do

      Code: Select all

      boinc --dir /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC --daemon
  2. As guest

    Code: Select all

    cd /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC; boincmgr &

The reason previous output looks right ... somewhere I ran a command which should have been 'as root' but realized I ran it as guest. Not knowing quite what to do, I ran it all again. That is the output you saw ... along with the caveat.

I do follow 'to the letter', .. but sometimes the letter is inconcise .. for me. .. example:
Check if boinc running

Code: Select all

Code: Select all
        ps -e | grep boinc
If no boinc do

Code: Select all

Code: Select all
        boinc --dir /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC --daemon
As guest

Code: Select all

Code: Select all
    cd /mnt/sda1/disk/BOINC; boincmgr &
As guest implies (to me) that the preceding should be done as Root ... hence some of the mistakes are made ... sometimes. I have to make assumptions ... sometimes..

The freekin point is . THANK YOU for working with me. I am grateful beyond measure ... and really trying my best. I hope we are near a mutually satisfactory success with this project.

^ That all looks good. Always run as guest. Emphasised as guest, because did not want it run as root. Run as root only when requested to do so. Running as root can do interminable damage. One has only to paste in the wrong text from clipboard, which is quite easy to do.

Btw to find out what a command does (what you are doing):

Code: Select all

man <cmd>
man chown    # for example.
Also here.

Next to Do
  • Test out scripts to automate what has been done by hand.
  • Saving everything relevant in /mnt/sda1/disk, in case of system screw up
  • Backing up /mnt/sda1/disk to USB stick

THANK YOU FOR THIS!! I have been confused for years ... between user account (wacojohn or in the case of Porteus guest), root, sudo, and su. Still am, in fact. I THOUGHT each 'tier' did the same thing .. except with simply different permissions. Hope that made sense. Again .. run this 'xxxxxxx', .. sorry you don't have permission. OK, then open 'terminal as super user' ... now xxxxxxxxx and it runs. OR ... type su xxxxxxxx, give p/w and it runs. OR ... log in as ROOT, open regular terminal and xxxxxxxx and it will run ... all ending up with the same result. TOTALLY misunderstood. Hope this makes sense. Anyway ...... I will CERTAINLY heed:

Yes, Sir. Familiar with 'man' ... though I often don't understand it. The other point to make .. if I 'man'ned every command, this would have taken months to develop this. Would have been nice to benefit from all you have done in that respect .. but you would have waited a LONG time for my replies. The objective was to get BOINC and install it. Developing it with you was a commitment .. the impact of which was unknown to me.

Indeed. Have a stick here on my table top. Dunno what capacity is needed, how prepared it needs to be ... what to do when I insert it (mount etc?) etc.

I stand awaiting your next instructions.

EDIT
8GB (formatted cap. 7.31 GB) USB stick .. FAT32..

@wacojohn

Over the next days will test out the script. However don't think used that many different commands, all pretty basic. Would be around the ten mark I think.

Anyway wouldn't hurt to look at du and cp, as far as stick is concerned. Also useful to get to grips with ln and ls. In fact, and this is just a suggestion, see if you can as guest link boinc in modules to directory disk, using ln. (Using ln there should not be a possibility of doing any harm.)
