Running SETI@home at a Raspberry Pi
« on: July 26, 2017, 11:11:42 PM »
I have had a Raspberry Pi lying around for a while without any designated purpose, so I came by a few forum posts about using them for BOINC / SETI@home computing.

This is how I got it running.

1) First update your Raspberry Pi
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

2) Install BOINC
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install boinc
3) Find you BOINC account key at https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/weak_auth.php

4) Attach a project in the BOINC client by (replace you_account_key with the key found in the first field at the above URL)
Code: [Select]
boinccmd --project_attach http://setiathome.berkeley.edu your_account_key
5) Check if BOINC client retrieve any packages and have started working on it
Code: [Select]
boinccmd --get_tasks


6) See in the above picture that the downloaded package will take 68 hours to compute :D

7) It is now also to be seen at the computer list on the statistics webpage: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?userid=10004858

The first two packages have been processed and delivered back to the server, somewhat slower than my PC, about 18-20 times, so not bad at all :)

Points total: 199
Moving average: 14.40

CPU type: ARM
Number of processors: 1
Operating System: Linux 4.1.19+
BOINC version: 7.4.23
Memory: 0.42 GB
Swap space: 0 GB
Total disk space: 7.12 GB
Free Disk Space: 4.54 GB
Measured floating point speed: 0.23 billion ops/sec
Measured integer speed: 0.99 billion ops/sec
