Summary: Client for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing
The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a
software platform which supports distributed computing, primarily in
the form of "volunteer" computing and "desktop grid" computing. It is
well suited for problems which are often described as "trivially
parallel". BOINC is the underlying software used by projects such as
SETI@home, Einstein@Home,, the World Community
Grid, and many other distributed computing projects.

This package installs the BOINC client software, which will allow
your computer to participate in one or more BOINC projects, using
your spare computer time to search for cures for diseases, model
protein folding, study global warming, discover sources of
gravitational waves, and many other types of scientific and
mathematical research.

* Sun Dec 01 2019 Jan Engelhardt <>
  - Update to release 7.16.3
    * If output file is missing on startup, flag task as error.
    * Let project specify directories in logical file names.
    * Fix security vulnerability involving logical file names.
    * Make "reread config files" work for ncpus.
    * Support fetch of files over GUI RPC; allow projects to supply
      their own web-based GUI.
    * Support GUI RPCs as HTTP Post requests.
    * Enable "Other options" in simple view if no client connected.
    * Clear "vm_extensions_disabled" flag on startup.
    * Fix work fetch bug when max_concurrent used.
    * Unsuspend jobs before telling them to quit.
    * Sanity check job runtime limits.

  - Do not ignore errors from groupadd/useradd
* Tue Sep 10 2019 Christophe Giboudeaux <>
  - Build boinc-client using -ffat-lto-objects
* Sat Dec 15 2018
  - Update to version 7.14.2.
    * Fix GPU detection when run with --detach_console or using $PATH
    * Update NVIDIA GPU detection for recent models
    * Change simple prefs dialog behavior to match advanced
    * If using a dynamic account manager, show AM user name in
      Manager rather than randomly-generated project account names
    * Move new-version URLs from cc_config.xml to nvc_config.xml
      (so that WCG can customize)
* Mon Aug 06 2018
  - Remove unnecessary ldconfig from devel subpackage
* Tue Jul 24 2018
  - Update to version 7.12.1.
  - Remove doc package, since the files have been removed from the
    source. Actually it wasn't even the documentation, but the
    server code.
  - Disable idle detection via the XSS API and remove dependency to
    libXScrnSaver-devel. This feature requires access to a running
    X server, which the BOINC client does not have in OpenSUSE.
  - Rename the devel package and provide the correct dependency.
    The devel package provides the headers for libboinc, and has
    nothing to do with the BOINC client.
  - Add conflict to original devel package.
  - Remove unnecessary dependency to libxslt.
  - Update systemd service file with changes from upstream: start
    after, and use "ProtectHome=true".
  - Move bash completion file to /usr/share tree to fix rpmlint.
  - Declare license files as %license.
  - Don't install `notes` and `todo` - these are internal notes of
    the developers and not helpful to users.
  - Drop 0001-MGR-support-wxWidgets-without-webview.patch, which has
    landed upstream (commit 27bb3c9e).
  - libboinc-shared.patch: Build shared libraries for client and
    static libraries for science apps. Science apps are distributed
    as binaries over the BOINC network, so dynamic linking doesn't
    make sense. But we can use dynamic linking for the client.
  - build-client-scripts.patch: Add some targets to fix build.
  - Fix default path for boincscr.
* Wed Jul 11 2018
  - Update to 7.8.6
    * can't find any useful ChangeLog :(

  - Update to version 7.8.3. (aaronpuchert)
  - Removed the deprecated "Encoding" line from the .desktop file.
  - Updated the cleanup code:
    * Permissions seem to be correct now.
    * Line endings seem to be correct.
    * Applied the UTF-8 conversion to the 2011 notes as well.
  - Removed the entire coprocs/NVIDIA directory, since all files in
    there have a doubtful license.
  - Removed components that are not required for a Linux build.
* Sun Sep 10 2017
  - update to 7.8.2
    * no changelog available

  - Refresh boinc-guirpcauth.patch, boinc-docbook2x.patch,
    0001-Fix-1530-null-pointer-dereference.patch to quilt's default
    p1 level.
* Mon Mar 27 2017
  - fix deps
    * add missing ca-certificates-mozilla
      needed in minimal install, e.g. JeOS images,
      without - boinc-client will fail to load config from
* Sat Feb 25 2017
  - fix for boo#1026965
    * no remote connect, no sysconfig file (--allow_remote_gui_rpc)

* Sun Apr 24 2016
  - Update to new upstream release 7.6.32
  - Remove boinc-client-AM_CONDITIONAL.patch, boinc-configure.patch
    (no longer needed)
* Fri Apr 22 2016
  - Replaced quick fix for compiler errors by a proper solution,
    which is already upstreamed.
  - Removed dependency to mysql, because that is only needed for the
    BOINC server, which we don't build anyway.
  - Removed dependency to libboinc, because it's meant to be
    statically linked to science apps and not necessary for end user.
* Sun Mar 27 2016
  - Update to version 7.6.22. The main advantage: GPUs running on
    the open source stack (Mesa) are now recognized and can be used
    for BOINC. Additional packages are needed though:
    * libOpenCL1,
    * libMesaOpenCL,
    * libclc.
    Further, the GPU device in /dev/dri needs to have r+w rights for
    the BOINC user, since it doesn't have access to the X session.
  - Fetch from GitHub instead of SVN, removed the fetch script
  - Rebased all patches, removed obsolete boinc-LC_MESSAGES.patch
  - Fixed compiler errors because openSUSEs wxWidgets is configured
    with wxUSE_STL=1, which is incompatible with BOINC. There is an
    open issue on GitHub:
  - Building the manager and locales separately is no longer
  - The icons seem to have disappeared.
  - The BOINC manager should be called with the data directory
    instead of the binary directory. Otherwise it can't connect.
* Wed Jun 24 2015
  - boinc-client.service: replace ControlGroup= by Slice=, since
    ControlGroup is gone since systemd-205 already. We now use the
    "background.slice". Configuration of the background.slice is
    left to the administrator since it may be shared by other
    packages, and is subject to preferences. If you need some default
    to begin with for the first time,  use
    `systemctl set-property background.slice CPUShares=2`.
* Wed Mar 18 2015
  - Reduce logrotate from Requires to Recommends.
  - Remove Requires: cron. This seems only for the server parts
    (not in this package).
  - Remove systemd requires to allow for a minimal container setup.
* Sun Nov 09 2014 Led <>
  - fix bashism in pre script
