I'm trying to install boinc to fedora 17 from packages. Everything is fine, client starts properly, I added port 31416 to firewall exception.

However cannot add any project or execute any command on it. boincmgr cannot connect to the core client any command on boinccmd returns status: Error -1 Operation failed: Error -1

How do I solve it?


cd to the boinc_client working directory before issuing a command

So if your boinc_client has its' working directory as /var/lib/boinc, then cd to that and then issue the boinccmd commands.


Possible problems:

  • You don't have WxWidgets installed
  • SELinux is interfering (try disabling it)
  • The user running the BOINC manager isn't in the BOINC group
