View Full Version : [SOLVED] boinc-client makes keyboard unresponsive

September 17th, 2007, 10:05 AM
hello everyone,
lately i installed boinc, and ii quickly realized that it makes my computer barely usable.

troubles don't come from the computations boinc runs, they come from boinc client itself : whenever the latter is active, it seems my computer randomly "misses" some keyboard hits, which is very upsetting and alters my workflow...

i tried to renice boinc_client to 19, but it didn't help... i'm running out of idea, so any suggestion is welcome.

too bad i haven't found a workaround yet, i cannot carry on this way so i'll drop boinc. too bad...
it's really silly, being annoyed by the client, not the computation itself...

hopefully someone will pass by...

ok, setting "run always" in BOINC manager seems to be the correct thing to do.

- thanks, myself. how clever !

- you're welcome, dude !
