Hi,

I installed boinc on raspberry Pi 4 but when I tried to add world community grid, it said the app may not have projects for my computer. It runs well on 32 bit and was wondering if an update for 64 will come..

Some projects don't have work for the ARM processor in a Pi. CPDN doesn't but I couldn't say for WCG without looking it up.

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php (also available in the Add Project Wizard in BOINC Manager) shows which projects have applications for ARM CPUs.

Just looked at link and it says WCG does support ARM processors under Linux but I have a vague memory of reading that they don't have a constant supply of work for it. I am sure there will be someone who can confirm or deny this given a few days.

Work from WCG for most platforms outside the AMD/Intel/Windows/Linux set of environments is very patchy. This is presumably down to the fact that many of the sub-projects are fairly short lived and short staffed, so do not have access to developers for the "less common" environments.
