Running BOINC on Solaris

The BOINC client software should work on:

  • Solaris versions 7, 8, 9, or 10
  • Any SPARC processor

If BOINC produces messages of the form

ld.so.1: boinc: fatal: libgcc_s.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory

then you may need to add /usr/local/lib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH before running BOINC.


If BOINC produces messages of the form

ld.so.1: boinc: fatal: libstdc++.so.3: open failed: No such file or
directory

then you probably have a newer version of libstdc++.so, and you may need to symbolically link the newer version to libstdc++.so.3


If BOINC produces messages of the form

Can't create shared mem: -144

then you need to change your shared-memory configuration. For example, make the following change to /etc/system and reboot:

set strctlsz=4096
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=130000000
set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg=600
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=512
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
set semsys:seminfo_semmns=4096
set semsys:seminfo_semmni=4096
set semsys:seminfo_semmnu=4096
set semsys:seminfo_semume=64
set semsys:seminfo_semmap=512
set semsys:seminfo_semmsl=128

These settings should work on machines with up to 20 CPUs.
