I am running BIONIC (SETI) on a Raspberry Pi, that's all the RPi does.

I'd like to know how to relocate the working location of the project from the RPi boot SD card to another SD card. Is this possible and if so how do I set it up?

That web site makes assumptions about BOINC installation locations which may not be accurate for all installations, or for all versions of BOINC.

The default working location for most distro installs was changed from /var/lib/boinc-client to /var/lib/boinc w.e.f. version 7.10

Perhaps somebody could add a comment. #2945

Gianfranco set up a symlink so /var/lib/boinc is the same as /var/lib/boinc-client under Debian. I expect it will be the same across the derivatives like Ubuntu.

Raspbian are still on 7.6 until Debian release Buster (expected in Q1 2019). At the moment Buster has 7.10. I am hoping Gianfranco can get 7.14.2 in before their change freeze.

Correction: They have 7.12 in Buster

Thanks, but the instructions did not work.
