BOINC on Raspberry Pi git Repository

I've setup a repository that you will be able to clone to compile BOINC and some of the project applications I've been working on. It will be here:

It's currently empty but I'm moving things over in a structured way so that it's not a big messy pile of source. Also, some of the source for these projects are absolute monsters, so I'll need to thin down what's included so the repo doesn't end up > 1GB. Most of it will just be getting the latest version and blasting away the .git directory.

Einstein@Home 'Binary Radio Pulsar Search' available on Pi

I've managed to get Einstein@Home BRP app compiled and running on the Raspberry Pi. It was a bit of a nightmare trying to compile as the build script that comes with the source over at was just way to automated for my liking. I had to hack and slash to get it compiled. I've had a look at the grav. wave search software and that seems even worse!

Need to wait for task to finish (for validation), but the application binary is available over on my project page if you want to give it a shot.

MilkyWay@home SUCCESS!

Confirming that I got a validation success for MilkyWay@Home.

Give the binary and app_info.xml a go for yourselves over on my Raspberry Pi BOINC page.

Still waiting on SETI@Home to return a result! I suspect that the task is hanging on someones task list, got canned and waiting to expire.
