Talk:Starting BOINC on boot (Unix)

Jump to: navigation, search

The link "startup script for Ubuntu 7.10" points to an article that describes a method for starting the client as a daemon running on the root account which is a very, very bad idea. I think this wiki should not be directing readers to articles that contain such bad advice. I've deleted the link. Dagorath (talk) 14:41, 20 November 2008 (UTC)


It might be wise to merge this page with the page Stop or start BOINC daemon after boot, which has more CLI info. Also, much of the material on this page is out of date, not that most Linux users can install via package manager rather than having to do things like this "by hand" --Eric (talk) 14:51, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
