As shown here http://forums.nas4free.org/viewtopic.php?t=7755 there are big problems with getting the BOINC client to work on Nas4free file servers.

This is really unfortunate because these systems have lots of idle CPU time and BOINC would be absolutely perfect for them.

NAS4Free is an embedded Open Source Storage NAS (Network-Attached Storage) distribution based on FreeBSD http://www.nas4free.org/

In the BOINC documentation it basically says that FreeBSD people can try to compile the BOINC client themselves (!!!). Not the most user friendly approach, and as the above linked thread shows, that route presents substantial difficulties. Most people using FreeNAS just want a home fileserver and their level of technical knowledge is not all that high.

Is it possible that some of the BOINC experts here can figure out a way to reliably get the BOINC client running on Nas4free?
