PADOLF@home is a bootable image containing the BOINC client and GUI, current GPU drivers, and Debian. Copy it to a 4GB+ flash drive, and run BOINC on any Intel computer (32 or 64 bit).

... on any Intel computer (32 or 64 bit).
Clarifying, this doesn't mean it can't run on AMD CPUs.

Standard x86 and x86-64 processors are supported, as are AMD/ATI and nVidia GPUs.

Specifically, they both give a 404 [file] not found error.

A pity. It would have been a nice work around for my current situation.

I don't think so, but you can try the Ubuntu MATE for Raspberry Pi 3: https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/

Or you can try out the Ubuntu Core. But I'm not sure its package manager has BOINC or not. https://www.ubuntu.com/download/core/raspberry-pi-2-3

Well this sucks, its the second from the last Boinc homepage info/news/forum post notification and all we get " error 404 "
I was looking forward to giving a Berkeley release vs running the Gentoo Based BILD ( Boinc Italy Linux Distro ) http://www.boincitaly.org/supporto/boinc-distro.html and going Debian based so its an easy way for people whom are also in my team " Gridcoin " to throw up thumb drive crunchers with hopes that this distro too like BILD has a " load into memory " feature along with persistent on-disk filesystem , this way if a power outage or kernel panic etc happens then any work units you have downloaded from what ever project you are attached to still exist on the thumb drive and its just a reboot and back to buisness. Along with both being able to install our needed daemon making it easier for new members joining my team.
I guess we will find out if/when they fix the file perms of the folder the .iso's are apparently in or direct nginx to the correct directory?
This has been apparently broken for 2 weeks since the post was made. posted on the 2nd and broken by the 2nd or 3rd?
Can we get an administrator to fix this, people look at the news from the Boinc home page and I think its a bit of a turn off when the news does not work and gives you an error 404 from day 1.
On another note, Thank you David Anderson we appreciate the effort and your work.
