I know Raspberry Pis are not overly powerful, but I have a 4 of them running 24/7 on SETI for over a year, now its gone away I've set them to run Einstein@Home, its running but that project does not excite me that much.

What other worthy crunching can I do with Raspberry Pis, not all the BOINC project will run on Pi, wanted to help with the virus efforts but it looks like Rosetta@Home that support the virus crunching does not run on Pi

So Im looking for good reliable BOINC projects that are Pi friendly, any suggestions ?

p.s I do have a Mac running the Rosetta and World Community Grid

Boincmgr will tell you which projects are compatible, and give a description of each.

Seti & Seti Beta, but you knew that.
LHC@home, but it never has work units
Albert@home, but it never has work units

Don't run the ones below but they should have applications
radioactive@home < need a sensor

<ed>or you could run ubuntu in 64 bit mode - a bit of installation work - and run android projects

A PI can run Rosetta, but it needs some extra work

Oh and TN-Grid also runs on my PI 4.
