Has anyone successfully run 6.12.26 -""
I have been following this thread and was happy to see the above so I could get my 5850 running on Ubuntu 64.(10.04LTS) However the boinc version above just makes the computer freeze between grub and the login. I have gone back to 6.10.58 At least that doesn't crash even tho I still dont have the ATI GPU recognised in boinc.
4) Message boards : Questions and problems : Command to report results rather that upload/update (Message 18099)

I was wondering if there is a option to report results using the command line tool in the format as below:

--project URL operation
Do operation on a project, identified by its master URL. Operations:
reset: delete current work and get more;
detach: delete current work and don't get more;
update: contact scheduling server;
suspend: stop work for project;
resume: resume work for project;
nomorework: finish current work but don't get more;
allowmorework: undo nomorework
detach_when_done: detach project

update: contacts the server but does not force a report on uploaded work units

from boincview
Sending scheduler request: To fetch work. Requesting 222 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

This seems to be the case even when there are units uploaded but not reported

The only option is a manual update from the button menu in boincview. Here you can in one manual operation tasks
2.update projects
3.get more work when needed

I would like to automate this task in linux using crontab
