Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-3680
2008-05-28 22:55:45
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : boinc-client
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 5.10.45
Release     : 14.20080315svn.fc9
URL         : http://boinc.berkeley.edu/
Summary     : The BOINC client core
Description :
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,
ClimatePrediciton.net, 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.

Update Information:

- Fixed opening locales by adding boinc-locales.patch  - Fixed boincmgr
segfaulting on F9/x86_64 (#445902) by adding    boinc-parsecolor.patch (Patch2).
- Do not ship ca-bundle.crt as it is already included in curl.  - Fixed the
almost empty debuginfo package (do not strip anything).  - Patches documented
according to the guidelines (PatchUpstreamStatus)  - Fixed find command because
starting with findutils-4.4.0-1.fc10, find returns a non-zero value when
"-delete" fails.  (for more details on this see bug #20802 on savannah.gnu.org)
- Fixed handling stale lockfiles (#444936).  - Initscript fixed to be compliant
with current SysVInit guidelines  (added condrestart, try-restart, force-reload
actions).
