On the Raspberry Pi, the Raspbian/Jessie repository contains the Package: boinc-app-milkyway

I'm using the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and all work units that I have received were processed but failed validation.

Is anyone having success with this?

Are there any plans to make BOINC work "natively" (via the BOINC Manager) for this project?

I use the account name "Raspberry Pi - Brian" to run projects on the Raspberry Pi .. but with zero credits, that account cannot post to the message boards.

When mesa/clover starts to work good, than it would be ehough to take a look. But at this moment one unable to use GPU for calculations even on AMD videocard while using open source driver. Things seems to be changed rapidly, for example a few years ago open source driver for video card was near unusable for graphics acceleration. But open source OpenCL still just a dream. At least Milkyway cant run on top of FOSS video stack even if I push all this stack unstable from git repositore.

the news today is that broadcom has made the GPU code for the SOC open source

in theory this makes it possible to utilize the gpu for milkyway
any one sensible enough to have a look ?
