     79'''I compiled my science app but when I run it the output says "shmget in attach_shmem: \\Function not implemented Can't set up shared mem: -1. Will run in standalone mode.'''\\
     80Not all Android kernels have shared memory support enabled. Make sure to use BOINC API >=6 and include "<api_version>x.y.z</api_version>" (where x>=6) in your app_info.xml file.
     81
     82'''I compiled my science app (for SETI?) but when I start BOINC I get no work'''\\
     83The scheduler may not know how to handle your platform. Try including a "<platform>i686-pc-linux-gnu</platform>" or similar popular platform in your app_info.xml file
     84
     85'''When my phone charges with the provided charger and also runs BOINC it gets hot'''\\
     86Yes, this is by design. If you are not in a hurry then in general try to charge your phone via USB (which gives 500mA) instead of the official charger (which gives much more). This will improve the battery life regardless of whether or not you are running BOINC.

     88'''Help! After running BOINC on my phone all of my bananas have become radioactive! ''' (and other similar "questions")\\
     89Bananas are naturally radioactive. They contain an isotope of potassium called potassium-40. This was not caused by BOINC or your phone...
