I would like to use a recent version of BOINC in order to use CUDA to help the hunt for aliens.

I have downloaded this file, but package manager doesnīt kick into life when I double click:

boinc_6.6.20_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.sh

What should I do?

sh ./boinc_6.6.20_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.sh
sh: Can't open ./boinc_6.6.20_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.sh




cd /home/yeehi
sh ./boinc_6.6.20_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.sh
use /home/neil/Downloads/BOINC/run_manager to start BOINC


Thank you for that idea, but it didnīt go... but it did ask me to run_manager...

for example if the sh file is on the desktop:



sh /home/username/Desktop/FILENAME.sh

Oh, sorry, you were too quick. I changed directory, as you suggested.

I have now downloaded the BOINC Manager from here (http://packages.debian.org/sid/amd64/boinc-manager/download).

It installed well, but it doesnīt find the BOINC client, I think, which is the file I am trying to get going...

Instructions on how to install BOINC are here.

(The simplest way is to just add it from synaptic, but I want to use CUDA, so want more recent code.)
