Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-2560
2009-03-09 22:02:58
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : boinc-client
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 6.4.7
Release     : 7.r17542svn.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:

- Rebase to current 6.4 branch, fixes help button in the simple GUI (BZ#478713).
- Trim CUDA prebuilt libraries from sources.  - Added a short link to upstream's
wiki about usage in Fedora into %%doc.  - boincmgr turned into a wrapper script
to allow passwordless connections from users of the boinc group (fix BZ#478715).
- Fix overriding $BOINCOPTS from /etc/sysconfig/boinc-client in the init script
(BZ#489199).  - Rewritten init script: honours localisation, fixed reload
action, doesn't output garbage into logfiles (resolves BZ#489378), do not leave
stale init script process on startup, uses /etc/init.d/functions instead of own
stuff.   - Split most documentation into a separate -doc subpackage (resolves
#492442).
