Message 150771 - Posted: 8 Jul 2021 | 16:42:47 UTC

Does anyone know how to run older, NO-prefetch boinc-client in 20.04.2 LTS Ubuntu.

Current repository has 7.16.6 version and that prefetch is really annoying, specially when running short tasks like SGS and GFN15, now 20+ GFN15 tasks ready to start.

Problem I have encountered is that older, like 7.4.21 (is that even pre-prefetch?) doesn't run because

error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


What I do is know that version is no longer available in Ubuntu 20...

Does anyone know how to get older version working?

And "Max # of simultaneous PrimeGrid task" is not answer, after limiting it to 9 I got 4 cpu task (so 4 cores are idle) and 4 GPU tasks are waiting to run...

You can downgrade / replace only "boinc" executable (usually in /usr/bin/boinc), which does real work, and not touching other files.

It won't work, executable was compiled with older libraries. And those are not available for Ubuntu 20...

EDIT: Tried it, won't work:

Is version 7.13 OK? Some time ago Mike compiled it:

http://www.primegrid.com/download/boinc_client/

This is a stand-alone binary, just rename it to "boinc" and place in appropriate location. It requires libssl 1.1 and should work on distros without libssl 1.0

Thank You, I will try it later, just got 7.9.3 installed and running, this is how I got it done:

1. Edit apt sources list, comment all focal repositories, added bionic repositories. (had to comment all focal because apt always installed 7.16.6 version)

nano /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic main universe deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic main universe apt update


2. Installed 7.9.3
apt install boinc=7.9.3+dfsg-5


3. Disabled Boinc auto-update
apt-mark hold boinc


4. Edited apt sources list, reversed edited lines to orignal, updated apt
nano /etc/apt/sources.list apt update
