I have been away for quite awhile and I was wondering where things are. I do not totally remember how but I was told at the time to come back later and see if I could be of help. I run only Linux and I see no native app is available for that platform. I somehow guessed that I might be able to assist through a Web Browser but I forget the specifics. Question: Is there an app for Linux similar to those for Mac and Win?

Update
I was able to get it working. I had to go to the /home/me/.BOINC/ directory and when I invoked 'boincmgr' from there I was good to go. Sorry I missed this the first time. How do I mark this solved?

The gui_rpc_auth.cfg contains a password. The manager needs to know that password in order to connect to the core client. If the file is empty then there is no password needed.
Yes I have the file 'empty' so no password is needed. I have the following show up when I run
locate gui_rpc_auth.cfg
[root@ACER boinc]# ls -la /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg /home/me/gui_rpc_auth.cfg
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root  root  31 Jun 24 21:28 /home/me/gui_rpc_auth.cfg -> /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg
-rw-rw----. 1 boinc boinc  1 Jun 24 17:00 /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg
[root@ACER boinc]# 

The one in my 'home directory' is owned by 'root' with 777 access permissions and it is a link to the /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg which is owned by 'boinc' with 'read and write' permissions for user 'boinc' and group 'boinc'. I have, as I said, put user 'me' into group 'boinc'.

Hi I have the following setup and I am trying to get 'boinc' working.
Linux Distro Fedora 24 64 bit
Kernel 4.11.6-101.fc24.x86_64
boinc-client.x86_64 7.6.22-7.fc24
boinc-manager.x86_64 7.6.22-7.fc24
When I run 'boincmgr, as root, it opens the manager but I get an error as follows: "Unable to connect to core client" I am new to this kind of program and as such have no idea how to proceed. I know that the 'boinc-client is running as shown here:

[root@ACER boinc]# systemctl status boinc-client

[root@ACER boinc]# 

I have 'restarted' the 'client' but did nothing to improve the situation. I have logged out and back in and nothing changed. I made sure that the 'boinc-client' starts at 'login' by 'enabling' it using 'systemctl enable boinc-client' which took. I also ran the following to put my user 'me' into the 'boinc' group.
[root@ACER boinc]#  locate gui_rpc_auth.cfg
[root@ACER boinc]# /usr/sbin/usermod -G boinc -a me
[root@ACER boinc]# chmod g+rw /var/lib/boinc
[root@ACER boinc]# chmod g+rw /var/lib/boinc/*.*
[root@ACER boinc]# ln -s /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg /home/me/gui_rpc_auth.cfg
[root@ACER boinc]# systemctl restart boinc-client.service

I have rerun
boincmgr
and I still have the same issue. I do not know how to proceed from here. And 'yes' I have checked the 'firewall' settings and port 31416 is open, as required. Thanks...
Robert
