Looks like an AMD on Mesa OpenCL is working in Debian Sid, but you need to do the following:
1. killall -9 boinc
2. boinc
Just keep it working, start another terminal and type
3. boincmgr
Now you may connect to boinc.

R7 260x can do Einstein@Home. WU's are not finished yet, so I can't tell anything about an errors, but it's crunching.

Mesa OpenCL on a Bonaire GPU
Yes. And Beignet on Intel (4th gen). And both have worked in Debian 9.
Just add boinc to the render group.
I've already tried that with no result. Then I've decided to set amdgpu drivers instead of radeon and again play a little with a groups ( render, video ). I received a black screen at startup ( on AMD card ) and have no idea how to get rid of it. Screen is still black, even after I've deleted the X-Server. Only build-in Intel video is works.
Please tell if you have better luck.
Mesa OpenCL on a Bonaire GPU can work for Collatz in Debian 9 with files from official reps.

I've install Debian 10 on another drive on a same machine. Then upgraded to Sid.
And BOINC now works unstable. I.e., after reboot it shows:
OpenCL: Intel GPU 0: Intel(R) HD Graphics Haswell GT1 Desktop (driver version 1.3, device version OpenCL 1.2 beignet 1.3, 2048MB, 2048MB available, 80 GFLOPS peak)
Intel card is detected, (no AMD) but collatz isn't working. Also, there are 512MB.
If kill it, and restart
/etc/init.d/boinc-client start
[ ok ] Starting boinc-client (via systemctl): boinc-client.service.
it shows (via boinc-manager):
No usable GPUs found
If kill it, and start it the wrong way, via console
$boinc, then

an AMD card is detected (but no Intel) and boinc-manager can't connect to boinc.

It's all too hard for me to fix, I'll better give up and will use some Linux distro that just works.

I' don't understand how one can add one group to another group.

This thread looks interesting.
Quote: "What I am saying is that allowing other user identities in the system access to your device node (whether that is /dev/dri or /dev/nvidia) would seem like it opens the door for programs run by that other identity to make secret picture snapshots of your desktop. As such, it is a sensible *default* that the "boinc" identity is not in the "video" group, or that it otherwise gets access to these device nodes without your explicit manual activation.

And If I'm fine with all security risks from boinc side, what may be done to run the GPU's?

Probably, it's easier to connect from another machine via boinc-manager ( Shift+Ctrl+I ) and inspect further.

It all worked flawlessly in Debian 9 with boinc 7.6.33+dfsg-12. But now, not - "no usable gpu found".
"due to missing access to /dev/dri/renderD* the boinc-client is not able to "see" the GPU.
Due to this GPU computing is not possible."

Don't know how to fix this.
I've tried to rebuild from source, but still no detection.
Then, I've tried Fedora 30, out of box boinc - no detection. But, in the build from source GPU detection is working, probably due to a newer versions of kernel/librarys.

Any suggestions on Debian version? Thank you.

I've found this. But, how it's possible to use gpu then, without security risks? If it can't access group 'video', than what should it do?

If you changed your preferences to run always, then that's why.
Do you mean "Power sources for computation" option on Android or some global BOINC options which are controlled from the projects? I'm not quite understand which preferences.

Don't worry about it
I'm worry about battery life, that's all.

Thanks for the answer, Ageless.

I only wanted to ask: why boinc consumes power, instead of sleeping entirely until next recharging?

It eats 1-2% of 1 core even when boinc is not active. And even if a phone is not charging. Why?

Is it possible to turn it off somehow?

Thank you.

Greetings!

Maybe, it's a question to support.

I'm a total noob at boinc, but I found out that I have 2 different accounts:
http://www.allprojectstats.com/showuser.php?projekt=0&id=2469669
and http://www.allprojectstats.com/showuser.php?projekt=0&id=2470336.

They a registred from one machine with 2 OS: Debian and Windows XP. Actually, I don't remember which project was the first and from what operating system. But it's kinda strange, 'cause email on this accounts is the same.

O, and Debian was updated to testing, and then was replaced to stable again, because version of boinc (7.0.24) disappeared from repository. Debian stable uses version 6.10.58. And Windows XP - 7.0.25.

So, is it possible to sum results of 2 accounts into 1 ?

p.s. sorry for possible mistakes in English.
