Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461851
Upgrade to new Version?
Last modified: 2008-09-24 20:24:09 EDT
there are new versions of boinc-client and boinc-manager available. Will the be an update to the 6.2-branch for Fedora 9 or do I have to wait until F10?
If there'll be a update, I have an suggestion:
In 6.2 they have renamed 'boinc_cmd' and 'boinc_mgr' to 'boincmgr' and 'boinccmd'. Please add an link of the old name to the new. Otherwise me and peoples which have integrated boinc into there system (aliases, services, scrips, etc.) would new to reconfigure there complete system.
Thanks a lot,
The update has been already submitted on 27th of August and has suffered the infrastructure failure (as all other updates), but now it is available in the updates-testing repository (feel free to test it and change karma accordingly).
I know about the filenames change, but there is still boinc_cmd and boincmgr(!) available as it was in the previous (5.X) releases, probably the commit hasn't been merged into the 6.2 branch and will be included in 6.4. I'm now leaving for a few days but next week I'll try to investigate details.
(However I've to tell that I'm not surprised from the idea of having both boinc_cmd and boinccmd [for how long?] -- you can create the symlinks yourself of course, but this way I'm afraid we'd just more confuse new users).
