I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and have installed "their" BOINC package. This package is old and does not support some features I need for S&H. I have downloaded the current BOINC app and installed it according to the instructions. After locating and installing a missing library the latest BOINC runs. My question is a procedural one. Here it is: If I remove the old BOINC Client and Manager can I merge the "new" $HOME/BOINC into the old runtime directory structure by copying $HOME/BOINC to /old_boinc_path? Or do those familiar with BOINC install it under their "user" and run it from there.

I know that I can entirely remove the old BOINC using "purge" and run the new BOINC from my user account but that creates some issues within LINUX's security structure. Any ideas, suggestions, help appreciated.

I just found the answer to how to do this in this forum.

I guess I did not look hard enough.
