Summary: The BOINC client
The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open-
source software platform which supports distributed computing, primarily in
the form of "volunteer" computing and "desktop Grid" computing.  It is well
suited for problems which are often described as "trivially parallel".  BOINC
is the underlying software used by projects such as SETI@home, Einstein@Home,, the World Community Grid, and many other distributed
computing projects.

This package installs the BOINC client software, which will allow your
computer to participate in one or more BOINC projects, using your spare
computer time to search for cures for diseases, model protein folding, study
global warming, discover sources of gravitational waves, and many other types
of scientific and mathematical research.

    (no longer needed)
* Fri Apr 22 2016
  - Replaced quick fix for compiler errors by a proper solution,
    which is already upstreamed.
  - Removed dependency to mysql, because that is only needed for the
    BOINC server, which we don't build anyway.
  - Removed dependency to libboinc, because it's meant to be
    statically linked to science apps and not necessary for end user.
* Sun Mar 27 2016
  - Update to version 7.6.22. The main advantage: GPUs running on
    the open source stack (Mesa) are now recognized and can be used
    for BOINC. Additional packages are needed though:
    * libOpenCL1,
    * libMesaOpenCL,
    * libclc.
    Further, the GPU device in /dev/dri needs to have r+w rights for
    the BOINC user, since it doesn't have access to the X session.
  - Fetch from GitHub instead of SVN, removed the fetch script
  - Rebased all patches, removed obsolete boinc-LC_MESSAGES.patch
  - Fixed compiler errors because openSUSEs wxWidgets is configured
    with wxUSE_STL=1, which is incompatible with BOINC. There is an
    open issue on GitHub:
  - Building the manager and locales separately is no longer
  - The icons seem to have disappeared.
  - The BOINC manager should be called with the data directory
    instead of the binary directory. Otherwise it can't connect.
* Wed Jun 24 2015
  - boinc-client.service: replace ControlGroup= by Slice=, since
    ControlGroup is gone since systemd-205 already. We now use the
    "background.slice". Configuration of the background.slice is
    left to the administrator since it may be shared by other
    packages, and is subject to preferences. If you need some default
    to begin with for the first time,  use
    `systemctl set-property background.slice CPUShares=2`.
* Wed Mar 18 2015
  - Reduce logrotate from Requires to Recommends.
  - Remove Requires: cron. This seems only for the server parts
    (not in this package).
  - Remove systemd requires to allow for a minimal container setup.
* Sun Nov 09 2014 Led <>
  - fix bashism in pre script
