With Windows (XP/W7) you can [if not already mentioned] and I have been using the delayed load service-start function set via the services.msc. Just run that in admin, right click BOINC then properties. Default is automatic, as drop down list offering automatic, with delay

I'm using that setting in Vista, but I don't think it's available in XP.

we're still talking about Linux (Ubuntu 9.10 to be more specific)... ;)
I need to check the start script in /etc/init.d to see if I can modify it somewhat similar to Ageless' tip. But AFAIK *IX has a "wait" command for such delays?
Hopefully this will not impact the rest of the startup process...

Richard, you're most right... visited the FAQ I wrote myself... Vista/W7.

Et al, very interested in hearing what is possible in Linux and with what version. The batch Ageless produced is a good start.

My girlfriend checked her Linux. She's got something called sleep. That what you are looking for? It will still have to start from a batch command, but is probably easier than pinging localhost. :-)

well, as a next try I've modified /etc/init.d/boinc-client:

start()
{
  log_begin_msg "Starting $DESC: $NAME"
  if is_running; then
    log_progress_msg "already running"
  else
    # TEST: insert short delay for CUDA driver...
    sleep 30
    start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --background --pidfile $PIDFILE \
      --make-pidfile --user $BOINC_USER --chuid $BOINC_USER \
      --chdir $BOINC_DIR --exec $BOINC_CLIENT -- $BOINC_OPTS
  fi
  log_end_msg 0

  if [ "$SCHEDULE" = "1" ]; then
    schedule
  fi
}


I'll have to wait now if it helps.

You think 30 seconds is enough?

This problem is probably solved but for anyone else that finds this thread and you are running Linux. Check /etc/group and make sure the boinc user has access to the video group.

For example

5 seconds were always enough for me...
