Message 89787 - Posted: 25 Jan 2019, 10:30:24 UTC

Looking at computer specs running cpdn on their site, I noticed a surprisingly large number of android devices running on ARM processors.

Is it possible to have the project list only show up those projects that will actually run on the os and cpu that a machine has?

CPDN I know will not be producing tasks for Android or ARM any time soon!

The project list (same in BOINC manager Add Project wizard) already shows which OSes/hardware is supported. That people still add other devices will have to do with future updates, I'm sure if you look through the project logs that you'll find lots of GPUs as well, also things not supported by CPDN. But perhaps one day in the future they will be.

There's one remaining problem in that list, in that LHC is declared - falsely - to support ATI gpus (because of an unfortunate naming clash).

We cleaned up the BOINC Manager 'attach' wizard for the major platforms - Linux, Mac, Windows - recently, so that v7.14.2 displays the same information correctly: it didn't before.

But I don't think that work has been completed for Android yet, so maybe Android users aren't getting that project compatibility information on their devices?

Android BOINC only shows those projects that support Android devices.

Asteroids, Einstein, Enigma, Moo, Rosetta, Universe, WCG, Yoyo

But of course it allows you to fill in any other project by URL as well.

Yeah, sorry, forgot to add that as I looked in the device's project list. It only shows those you've not added yet. {facepalm} :)
