21) Message boards : BOINC client : HOW TO install BOINC with Fedora 9 ? (Message 18857)

@MEX:

I installed Fedora 9 and BOINC 5.10.45 via RPM. BOINC is able to access the Internet when I am logged in as normal user (not root), even with SELinux set to enforcing.

Are starting the client during boot ?

Currently I have only written the flags into my cc_config.xml but until I reboot my computer, or restart the client, I wont get results from these flags ...

There is a menu option in Boinc Manager to do that: Advanced / Read config file.
As the manager isn't started at boot, i prefer to change the cc_config.xml with gedit myself.

After booting I still get the following messages with your cc_config.xml:

MfG, MEX
23) Message boards : BOINC client : HOW TO install BOINC with Fedora 9 ? (Message 18834)
Posted 25 Jul 2008 by Profile MEX
Post:
The <start_delay> option won't work before version 6.x.
Your cc_config.xml file should look like this:
<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <http_debug>1</http_debug>
        <http_xfer_debug>1</http_xfer_debug>
        <network_status_debug>1</network_status_debug>
        <proxy_debug>1</proxy_debug>
    </log_flags>
    <options>
        <http_1_0>1</http_1_0>
        <start_delay>60</start_delay>
    </options>
</cc_config>

The <http_1_0> option did help me a lot with http_error, but I think it wouldn't harm to try it in your case. As mentioned above, the <start_delay> option will cause a Unrecognized tag in cc_config.xml: <start_delay> message in version 5.x clients, but otherwise doesn't harm either.

Gruß,
Gundolf

With your cc_config.xml I get the following messages:

The <start_delay> option won't work before version 6.x.
Your cc_config.xml file should look like this:
<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <http_debug>1</http_debug>
        <http_xfer_debug>1</http_xfer_debug>
        <network_status_debug>1</network_status_debug>
        <proxy_debug>1</proxy_debug>
    </log_flags>
    <options>
        <http_1_0>1</http_1_0>
        <start_delay>60</start_delay>
    </options>
</cc_config>

The <http_1_0> option did help me a lot with http_error, but I think it wouldn't harm to try it in your case. As mentioned above, the <start_delay> option will cause a Unrecognized tag in cc_config.xml: <start_delay> message in version 5.x clients, but otherwise doesn't harm either.
Currently I have only written the flags into my cc_config.xml but until I reboot my computer, or restart the client, I wont get results from these flags ...

As I know about the clients quirk with not being able to connect to the www when started during boot, and how to correct this later with a restart, I am not in a hurry.

MfG, MEX

PS: How do I upgrade to a 6.x version of the client, and will i have to upgrade the manager too if I do this ?

I've also found this thread:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=47663
where someone had similar problem which has been "solved" by setting more verbose debugging output. Could you try the same (see http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/ClientMessages for details how to set other debugging messages) and post the output again?
The configuration is read from a file cc_config.xml.
If this file is absent, the default configuration is used.
This file has the following format:

<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        [ flags ]
    </log_flags>
    <options>
        [ options ]
    </options>
</cc_config>

For example, if you want to see messages about CPU scheduling,
use a text editor (such as Notepad) to create the following file,
and save it as cc_config.xml in your BOINC directory.

<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <cpu_sched>1</cpu_sched>
    </log_flags>
</cc_config>
That looks very interesting !

I will try the following cc_config.xml :
<cc_config>
    <log_flags>
        <http_debug>
        <http_xfer_debug>
        <network_status_debug>
        <proxy_debug>
    </log_flags>
    <options>
        [ <http_1_0> ]
        [ <start_delay>X</start_delay> ]
    </options>
</cc_config>
If the debug info doesn't help, maybe the option to delay the start of applications and/or updating to the new client 6.1.6 might help.

Post:
Anyway it seems to be a networking problem. What's the output of "host orbit.psi.edu", for example?

What about the iptables and SELinux? Try stopping iptables ("service iptables stop"), setting SELinux to permissive (as I've already mentioned).
I have already tried disabling SELinux or settig it to permissive, which didn't help.

I assume stopping iptables wont help too, as RESTARTING the boinc-client manually after logging in with my username solves the problem.

Something must be different at the time boinc is started during booting f9 and when I restart it later ... but as I am no expert for Linux I don't have any idea what that could be :rollingeyes:

MfG, MEX

PS: Next thing I try is installing BOINC on my PS3 with f9, if I have the same problems with my PS3 I can be sure that it is a problem of the RPM or the f9 release ... otherwise the hardware of my FSC ESPRIMO Mobile V5535 might be the source of my problem :(

PPS:
[mex@localhost ~]$ host orbit.psi.edu
orbit.psi.edu has address 204.17.38.37
[mex@localhost ~]$
But this doesn't say anything, as surfing with Firefox was always possible while the client still couldn't resolve the host name until I restarted it ( it seems that the client remembers some faulty status from the time when it is started during boot until it is ordered to restart )

One thing is the RPC connection, another then the connection to the project website.
After I discovered my fault (creating the symlink for root and not for my user mex) RPC connection to localhost is working flawlessly.
But I still have the problem that the client started during boot by f9 isn't able to connect to ANY projects website (until I restart the client manually as root)
I just stumbled across some old notes I made. Those notes mention it's necessary to enable port 31416 to allow remote hosts to connect to the client. Sorry for all the confusion. It's been so long since I installed it and since it's worked trouble free I've never had to review the topic to make repairs.
Currently I only want to connect to the client at localhost, so enabling port 31416 isn't a problem currently ... until I install boinc at my PS3 too and want to communicate with my PS3boinc using the manager on my notebook.
How do I enable port 31416 in SELinux ?
What project? Isn't it World Community Grid?
Currently I am participating in 7 projects:

To RESTART the client I still have to use su to become root, and even worse: when the client is started at boot it isn't able to connect to the www unless I manually RESTART the client as root :(
I'm getting confused here...

How exactly are you starting the client? Take us through what you do, step by step.
I don't start the client, but f9 does during boot !
But then the problem is that this client can't connect to the www and is unable to communicate with projects, download WU or upload results.

A normal user ( like me working with my username mex at my V5535 notebook from FSC ) is not able to restart or start the client, as you need to become su for these tasks. The only option a normal user has is to deactivate the client from the EXTRAS of the manager (version 5.10.45).

MfG, MEX

PS: Of course I know the password for su, as i have installed f9 myself on my notebook.
But I can't take you step by step through how f9 is starting the client during boot as I am not f9, or the maintainer of the RPM boinc-client which I installed with yum on a fresh installation of f9 at my FSC ESPRIMO Mobile V5535

The point is a normal user can't solve this problem without knowing the root password, and I don't want to restart the client as su whenever I boot f9 anyway (it is the job of f9 to start the client during boot, why should I do it when my OS should be able to do it ? :rollingeyes: )

If you want BOINC to be started automatically at boot, type "chkconfig boinc-client on".

(reading http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Mjakubicek/HowToUseBoinc someone may think that his user rights are good enough for starting boinc)


That's why I suggest to put your own username in the boinc group and create a symlink in your HOME dir. That way you can have full control over starting/stopping/pausing/resuming the daemon even when you're not root. Plus you don't have to give the password when you start the manager. That works on Fedora 7 and 8 and I hope it works on 9 as well.
I have now created the correct symlink and my own username is in the boinc group, but I still don't have full control over the client from the manager !

I can only STOP the client from the manager, but I cant RESTART or START the client :(

To RESTART the client I still have to use su to become root, and even worse: when the client is started at boot it isnt able to connect to the www unless I manually RESTART the client as root :(

That's correct -- as for any other daemon.
If you want BOINC to be started automatically at boot, type "chkconfig boinc-client on".
As mentioned in http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_on_Linux#Fedora_7_and_up I did of course use "/sbin/chkconfig boinc-client on" to tell Linux to auto-start the boinc-client daemon at boot time.

But the result didn't seem to work as expected. The boinc-client is indeed started during the boot, but it isnt able to connect to the www unless I manually restart it with "/sbin/service boinc-client restart".
[mex@localhost ~]$ /sbin/service boinc-client start
Starting BOINC client as a daemon:  /etc/init.d/boinc-client: line 165:
/var/log/boincerr.log: Keine Berechtigung
Correct too, the only odd thing I see right now is that it should return 4 instead of 0 (which is confusing -- I'll fix that of course and release an update occasionally).
Can you please check /etc/init.d/boinc-client too if it is started at the right time (after access to the www is possible) and check if the user and/or group boinc has the necessary rights to access the www ?

MfG, MEX

PS: I too expected that "setenforce 1" will reverse the setting you suggested, as I had my first contact with Unix in the 80ies (I even bought MINIX 1.2 during this time for my PC after reading the book about OS from A.Tanenbaum !), I just wanted to be sure ...

As there is a GUI to be found at SYSTEM > ADMINISTRATION > SELinux Management, I will try now to set "System Default Enforcing Mode" in "Status" to "Permissive" or "Disabled" ... 2 reboots later I can tell you now that neither "Permissive" nor "Disabled" has solved my problem.
I still get the Messages

Post:
- What concerns SELinux, a quick way how to check whether SELinux is a reason of any troubles is setting it to permissive mode by typing "setenforce 0" as root and trying whether it works. If still not, then it is SElinux-unrelated for sure.

- Seeing all the hacks you tried I suggest you do a clean install of BOINC again before trying anything else. The package installs all what is needed, creates user & group correctly, sets correct permissions etc. Just remove all boinc packages, install them again, start the service, start the manager and log in using the password from /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg.

If problems still persist, post on this thread again what's going on.

Thanks,
Milos

Many thanks for your help Milos, I will try "setenforce 0" to deactivate SELinux later.

If this doest cure my problem, I will try to deactivate starting boinc as a demon at boot or to start it at a later time in the boot to check if this is the issue why the client doesn't get a connection to the www until I restart it manually as root.

I didn't use any hacks, except those mentioned in http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_on_Linux#Fedora_7_and_up , and will try installing boinc to a clean install on my PS3 as soon as I have found and corrected the reason for the client not beeing able to connect to the www unless I restart it manually as root.

The issue with the manager not beeing able to connect automatically to localhost with a GUI_RPC_password is solved as I made the fault to create the symlink to the HOME directory as root instead of staying my user.

MfG, MEX

PS: How do I reactivate SELINUX after the test ?

Maybe I have to use a empty password to solve my problem with the manager not connecting to the client automatically, like mentioned in your link ...
Open the file up in gedit. Hightlight whatever is in there and delete it. Then hit enter once and save the file.

Many thanks for the help :D ... but I have found the source of the problem why my manager wasn't able to connect to the client:
Now it isn't necessary anymore to compromise my security by using NL as a password, which wouldn't have helped me anyway ...

I did "link /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg $HOME/gui_rpc_auth.cfg" after performing su, and created a link to /root/gui_rpc_auth.cfg instead of /home/mex/gui_rpc_auth.cfg (silly me, I should have checked this much earlier :rollingeyes:)

This only leaves the problem that the client started as a daemon at boot isnt able to connect to the www unless i restart it as root.

MfG, MEX

PS: It is annoying, but no critical fault, that I have to restart the client as root manually ... and maybe I did something wrong myself when installing boinc or f9 which now causes this strange behavior :rollingeyes:

Note, you need to create an account (which is kinda hard to find).

But Dag, is there anything in the discussion page there? Or am I just being blind again?
What type of account are you talking about ? ... A BOINC account ? ... the account boinc in f9? ... my useraccount which I have added to the group boinc in f9 ? ...

I am participating in SETI@home since the last century, and have used a linux client without problems for the CLASSIC application years ago.

After installing f9 on my FSC ESPRIMO Mobile V5535, as I wasn't satisfied with the support of Ubuntu for my PS3 because I want to use the same distribution on both computers with BOINC, I installed BOINC with "yum install boinc-client boinc-manager" as mentioned in http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_on_Linux#Fedora_7_and_up and changed the GUI RPC password to something shorter and easier to remember. I also created a link to /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg in my home directory and added my username to the boinc group.

Until now I didn't modify the SELinux settings to give users in the boinc group access to port 31416 (as I don't know how to do this), or anything else.

My current status with BOINC and f9 on my V5535 is that I still have to connect the manager manually to localhost in its Extras, and that the client isn't able to connect to the www:

35) Message boards : BOINC client : HOW TO install BOINC with Fedora 9 ? (Message 18708)
Posted 21 Jul 2008 by Profile MEX
Post:
Upstart Init Daemon

Fedora 9 uses the Upstart init daemon as a replacement for System V init. The benefit of this is that Upstart has a more sophisticated idea of how to to trigger and manage services. For Fedora this is particularly useful as it will help us to improve our boot and shutdown processes, streamlining a lot of what currently happens.

All current init scripts should run without errors. However, any customizations to /etc/inittab (except initdefault) will need to be ported to upstart...

Maybe the new UPSTART is causing my problems with boinc_client started at boot beeing unable to connect to the www
... unless I restart boinc_client as root :(

Can someone please check if the init scripts of boinc_client for F9 are compatible to Upstart ?

MfG, MEX

PS: Maybe boinc_client is started too early at boot, and remembers that it cant connect to the www unless it is restarted ...

Also, you may have to modify the SELinux settings (if you're using SELinux) to give users in the boinc group access to port 31416.

In the wiki I read "Enter chmod g+r /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg (change the permissions on /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg to allow group read)"
Can it be that I have to do a chmod g+w to /var/lib/boinc or some of the files in this directory to solve my problem, like mentioned in http://lledgerock.com/boinc_logs/%23boinc.2008-06-20.log.html ?

PS: Found a explanation for port 31416 in http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=17525&nowrap=true#147111 and http://www.archivum.info/debian-bugs-closed@lists.debian.org/2007-04/msg03584.html

Which still leaves the question HOW do i give boinc access to port 31416 to solve my problem with SELinux ?

Into which groups do have to add the user boinc ?


The wiki article says add your username to the boinc group. If you added the boinc user to other groups then you did that step wrong.

Also, you may have to modify the SELinux settings (if you're using SELinux) to give users in the boinc group access to port 31416.

I added my username to the boinc group correct in the first try (I am not THAT stupid :rolleyes: ).
But I assume that I made a fault with the link, how can I check that the link is correct ( maybe he points to a old version of the file as I used gedit to change the password later ) ?

The hint with SElinux has a high propability to solve my problem, isn't SElinux new to Fedora since release 9 ?
( that might be the reason that I am the first who complains about this )

How do i give the boinc group access to port 31416 ?
What is this port used for ?

MfG, MEX

PS: I have edited http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Installing_on_Linux#Fedora_7_and_up to add your hint, and moved the start of the client BEFORE editing the GUI RPC password.

1. manager cant connect to the client unless I go to EXTRAS and connect manually to localhost AND enter the password ( this is annoying but not a big problem )

2. client cant connect to the internet, unless I restart it as su with root rights !
This is a BIG problem as I want to start it at boot so that it is running whenever my computer is running F9.
Obviously the client started at boot isn't allowed to connect to the internet.
How can I give the client the necessary rights ?
Your 1 will happen unless you create that symlink.

It really sounds like the package didn't install properly. There should be an init.d script that starts the client at boot (but not the manager).

If you don't mind being fiddly, you can achieve the same behavior installing it by hand. You'll have to update BOINC on your own, but if the package isn't working for you, then this may help work out why...
I did create a symlink, but obviously something didnt work as it should :( which surley is my fault ;)

How can i view this init.d script from the clients RPM ?

I asume that the clients RPM isnt a "real" RPM, but only copies the clients files into the right place and that the maintainer thought that everyone is linux-literate enough to do the rest himself :(

MfG, MEX

PS: I try to repair the faulty installation of the clients RPM, so that i can use yum for updating later.
Because of this i still have the problem:

Thanks for discovering the error and posting about it otherwise it might never have been fixed.
Maybe I am just too stupid :rollingeyes:

PS: I didn't see the boinc group as I was filtering system users & groups ... as soon as I removed the hook to filter these, a lot of groups and users showed up, including boinc ( although I am no new Linux user, it is several years since I had to administrate a Linux )

It seems that the order in which to do the steps mentioned in the link above isnt correct.
I first had to start the client as root before being able to change the GUI RPC password:
[mex@localhost ~]$ su
Passwort: 
[root@localhost mex]# /sbin/service boinc-client start
The BOINC client requires initialization (no projects attac[WARNUNG]
Starting BOINC client as a daemon:                         [  OK  ]
[root@localhost mex]#
After stopping the boinc-client, i was able to change the GUI RPC password and add the user mex to the group boinc with "gedit /etc/group" and did the other steps which shold allow me to connect to "localhost" without having to use a password.

But now i get the following message when i try to connect the manager to the client:
[b]BOINC Manager - Verbindungsfehler[/b]
Das eingegebene Passwort ist falsch. Bitte erneut versuchen.


MfG, MEX

PS: Suddenly, after switching to "English U.S." as language for the manager, and restarting the manager, i was able to connect to the client and download a WU for SETI@home : http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=919440442
