Hi,
I don't know if this is a misplaced idea or what but...

I think you should do a Boinc client that runs on Solaris on Sparc cpu's.

Maybe this would expand your horizon to high computing capacity servers that can really do math very quick.

There are a number of download sites for other operating systems and processors (including Solaris/SPARC) at http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/DownloadOther

Ok, I've downloaded and installed the Solaris for amd64, it is working OK.
But when I started it with a proyect
it says:

2011-11-18 13:45:43 [SETI@home] Message from server: This project doesn't support computers of type i386-pc-solaris
2011-11-18 13:45:43 [SETI@home] Message from server: This project doesn't support computers of type i386-pc-solaris

I still would like to contribute no any other project, I'm looking for a project that support this type of computer, but with no luck..

any ideas?

Now I'm sad!

In a sparc server it says:

2011-11-18 14:19:37 [SETI@home] Message from server: This project doesn't support computers of type sparc64-sun-solaris
2011-11-18 14:19:37 [SETI@home] Message from server: This project doesn't support computers of type sparc64-sun-solaris

and in the project list, it says the project does!!

SETI@home BOINC está emplazado en la Universidad de California, Berkeley Astrophysics, astrobiology Mac OS X, Linux/x86, Mac OS X (PowerPC), SPARC Solaris, SPARC Solaris 2.7, Windows, Windows (NVIDIA GPU), Linux/x64

what is happening? some1 knows?

The same people who built BOINC for SPARC will also have built a Seti application for SPARC. See for instance at http://www.dotsch.de/boinc/SETI@home%20applications.html
