Description Kees de Jong 2015-11-23 03:51:20 EST
How reproducible:
When Boinc is installed, the folder /var/lib/boinc doesn't get populated with the necessary files. This is because the boinc-client can't access the folder.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the boinc-client with systemctl
2. Open the Boinc Manager in GNOME
3. Nothing happens, you can't select any projects, this is because boinc-client can't access the folder.

Expected results:
When the Boinc Manager is started, the user should be able to add projects.

Additional info:
The operating user should also be in the boinc group. So it would be a good idea to at least set the right ownership of /var/lib/boinc and state in the man page that the operating user should be added to this boinc group.

[root@defiant ~]# ll -d /var/lib/boinc
drwxrwxr-x. 5 boinc boinc 4096 Nov 23 09:46 /var/lib/boinc

[root@defiant ~]# id keesj
uid=1000(keesj) gid=1000(keesj) groups=1000(keesj),978(boinc)
