Ok, I think it’s actually working fine now.

I’m gojng to assume upgrading to bleeding-edge dev versions is frowned upon?

Well I can manually copy the binary and it seems to work. Don’t think my projects are happy...

Should have read up on this first instead of just diving in. Now I can’t fix the package to the original version.

Guess I’ll come back to this another time. 11 hosts is fine...

So close. It’s choking on install:

Thanks, can’t believe I’ve missed that.

A few of my hosts have old versions of BOINC in their repositories. So I’d like to compile from source.

Unfortunately it tries to compile the gui client too (I assume that’s why it’s asking for WxWidgets) - is there a way I can compile the cmd line client only with the make process? Literally all of my 12 hosts are headless.

(If this is the wrong subforum for this could it be moved to a more appropriate one please?)

I’ve been playing around with boinctui lately because I really like it. It’s perfect for my needs. But I got annoyed that a few things weren’t how I wanted and that there were great PRs people had submitted that weren’t being looked at. I assume the author went AWOL at some point.

So I forked it, took the PRs myself and added some things of my own and the result is what I’m calling (slightly pompously...) boinctui-extended.

https://github.com/mpentler/boinctui-extended

I’ve made a start with translating the code comments into English, fixed some strings/typos, started work to get rid of some cppcheck warnings, added a previous server hot key option (a godsend when you have 10 hosts...) and took every PR and modification I could find on GitHub. I’ve also added a host counter and a host ID option so you can name your added servers - never lose track again!

Have a play with it if you want. If you’d like to help me fix some bugs then that would be good too. I know literally zero cpp bar copying from stackoverflow. There are a fair few segmentation faults that occur with Sergei’s original codebase and it’d be good to try and fix them.

I also need help with error handling - I added a check to make sure the realloc() calls weren’t NULL, but if they ARE I don’t know how to handle that properly. Some advice would be helpful.

Some documentation is included now as well to help you get started.
