Hi,

i got an Sparc System with 4 cpus but it cant download the client-software.
Is there a chance to download the Solaris client binaries by hand? I need it :-(

If there is no work available, your BOINC client did not get any work and so it did not download the science application.
Solaris SPARC is listed at the applications page, so your BOINC client should download it automaticly, if there would be work avialable.

Hi,

I just got some work.

But it has a very short deadline.
Let's see if I can complete some.(These are my first).

I think it would be better to link the binary staticly, so it will work on every system without any user invention.

unfortunately boinc doesn't allow us to generate binaries statically as far as i know. for some reason it's all dynamically linked. i think it has something to do with how boinc loads applications.

No, this is no problem. I have build several BOINC applications, which I have linked staticly. But at Solaris, it could be that some of the libs are only available as shared lib. The "-nodefaultlibs" gcc statement and a specify of the different static libs would do the job.

I've made some slight changes and added a new binary for the solaris platform. Tell me if this works for you.

At least for me it did not do the trick (it is even worse.
