I am a new convert from Mandriva, so please be gentle with me
After some struggle, I was able to set up the boinc client about 10 days ago and it was doing its job until a few days ago. I noticed that the client was not working anymore and
returned a defunct process. I tried to restart the client in so many different ways with no avail. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the client and manager packages, renamed the /var/lib/boinc directory just in case. I noticed that although there wasn't any error messages generated during the re-install, the new /var/lib/boinc directory was not created appropriately. It was missing all the files, including the signature/password file.
Of note, SElinux has started to warn me about the boinc process trying to get access to certain files/folders (fifo_file, /bin/bash, /proc/interrupts, /proc, /etc/localtime, nvidiactl) a few days before and on the day of the failure. I have opted to ignore them all.
Has any one here had this experience/observation? Is this due to an update you think? Any input will be greatly appreciated.
