Description Anton Krajcik 2008-04-24 11:59:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Problem #1
boinc-client daemon do not start after Boinc instalation immediately

Problem #2
'root' access is required to setup Boinc Manager

Problem #3
'root' access is required to setup Boinc Manager after reboot of PC



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
boinc-client-5.10.45-9.20080315svn.fc8.i386.rpm
boinc-client-debuginfo-5.10.45-9.20080315svn.fc8.i386.rpm
boinc-client-devel-5.10.45-9.20080315svn.fc8.i386.rpm
boinc-manager-5.10.45-9.20080315svn.fc8.i386.rpm

Explanation:
After instalation via 'yum install boinc-client boinc-manager' I am not able to 
start Boinc Manager correctly because 'boinc-client daemon' is not running 
immediately past instalation.
I must start 'boinc-client daemon'as root through '/sbin/chkconfig boinc-client 
on' and reboot my PC.
'/sbin/chkconfig boinc-client start' - does not work

Atter reboot I must 'Select computer' with these parameters (in Boinc Manager - 
Advanced Mode)
host name: localhost
password: content of file gui_rpc_auth.cfg (as root I must in Terminal execute 
this command 'gedit /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg')

The same results I obtained after installation .rpm packages showed above in 
'Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable)'


Another problem is that after every reboot of PC I am again forced to insert 
'localhost' and password (content of file gui_rpc_auth.cfg) as root.

Correct.
See the following part of Fedora packaging gudelines for initscripts for details:

Both correct -- this is the desired behavior.

> '/sbin/chkconfig boinc-client start' - does not work

And it never will, see "man chkconfig" for details. Probably you wanted to run
"service boinc-client start".

None of the things you listed above is a bug => closing as NOTABUG.

...and to anticipate next question, if you do not want to have to enter your
password every time, just edit the gui_rpc_auth.cfg and insert _only_ a newline.
