I added both Nbody and Separation applications for FreeBSD amd64.

Thank you for that.

Unfortunately, the FreeBSD client doesn't appear to work - at least for me. On my FreeBSD-8.2/amd64 host, attempting to attach to MilkyWay gives the error:
Tue 27 Sep 19:24:50 2011|Milkyway@home|Message from server: This project doesn't support computers of type x86_64-pc-freebsd

Could you please investigate

The FreeBSD applications are for the platform "amd64-unknown-freebsd" since that's what was already in the database. I have no idea What the difference between amd64-unknown-freebsd and amd64-pc-freebsd, but I made a copy of the existing one with the new type.

This still isn't quite right. The configure script for boinc-client-6.4.5 maps a target type of "amd64" to "x86_64" and then maps various machine types to "pc", resulting in "x86_64-pc-freebsd", rather than "amd64-pc-freebsd". These mappings all appear to be part of the standard configure script - which isn't changed by the FreeBSD port. Could you please copy the existing amd64/x86_64 FreeBSD clients to "x86_64-pc-freebsd".

I guess I wasn't paying attention. Try now.

Thanks for that, they now both download.

Unfortunately, the N-body client instantly has an assertion failure:
Assertion failed: (j < argc), function mwFixArgv, file /home/matt/milkywayathome_client/milkyway/src/milkyway_util.c, line 489.

See http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=117646922
and http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=117680728

My test Separation task is running and I'll let you know how it turns out.

It completed and validated correctly. Unfortunately, I'm not sure of the correct process to disable only part of a project.

Right now it would require using an app_info.xml file that only includes the Seperation app.

I detached and re-attached and only got the N-body client. On the positive side, v0.69 successfully processed its initial work-unit and is working on a second work-unit.

Thanks for your efforts.
