So what's the skinny on the Mac version of BOINC? Is it as bad as some of the threads/messages I've seen? How hard is the command line version to setup/configure/run (as far as adding projects and such)?

Thanks guys!!!!

What sort of complaints are you seeing? I haven't seen major complaints about the Mac version.

As far as the command line stuff, I don't use a Mac, but the couple times I've tried to use the Windows command line, it was fairly easy. But take that for what it's worth...

I just remember seeing posts with people having trouble with that version when running on 10.4. I'd have to actually search again to see exactly what they were. I'm guessing there aren't too many people here running on Mac so they aren't responding :(

Thanks for the input on the command line though!!!

Here is one of the threads on this board: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=1515&nowrap=true#9215



Charlie has fixed this bug...

I have posted BOINC version 5.8.17 for the Macintosh to the alpha
download page.

This has only a few minor changes from 5.8.16:
- Correctly report Physical RAM sizes > 2GB
- Improved backtrace for debugging support
- Fix a typo which caused the installer to work incorrectly on some
Macs, resulting in a -1010 error.

Please test this as soon as possible. If there no problems are
reported, we expect to release this to the public in a day or two.

Cheers,
--Charlie


And checking the download page, it has been made the recommended version.

Thanks! So what's the recommended method for upgrading and removing the old MenuBar?

Is there a way to "drain" the queue via the MenuBar application? If not, then can/should I move the work from the MenuBar work units after installing .16?

Thanks!!!!

Just install on top, I don't think you would lose the previous work. But then, I don't know about BOINC on Macs.

Thanks Nicolas. That's what I did and all seems to be okay except that some of the new projects I've started running don't have a Mac client - oh well. I did go back and remove all of the remnants of the MenuBar app too just to be sure.
