Consider this piece of information (still under construction) at http://www.amdusers.com/forum/showthrea ... bone-Black
It comes out here as:
When you want to use the Beaglebone Black for BOINC there are a few things to consider.
- The CPU is a Texas Instruments Sitara AM335x, which is for all practical purposes an ARM Cortex-A8 core.
(x depending on the model/revision. In the case of the Beaglebone Black Rev.C it is a Sitara AM3359).
- Not all OS-es run on an ARM Cortex-A8, and those who do are not are not all supported by BOINC -at least not officially.
You may have to compile the client yourself. Do not forget the set the options specific for an ARM Cortex-A8:
CFLAGS="-march=armv7-a -mtune=cortex-a8" and
CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=neon -ffast-math -O3"
- Having built a BOINC client yourself on your OS of choice does not guarantee that you can download work from a project -at least not automatically.
You may have to use the anonymous platform option.
Let's look at the BOINC projects that offer applications for the ARM Cortex-A8, so you do not have to compile them yourself (If you do, do not forget to compile the applications with the same CFLAGS values as mentioned for the BOINC-client!)
