Boinc Fedora instructions
Description of problem:
The boinc clint does not create daemon script in /etc/init.d/boinc-client.
The documentation in /usr/shar/doc/boinc-client-6.12.43/USAGE_FEDORA says:
What the installer does
1. Creates the daemon script at /etc/init.d/boinc-client.
because the daemon script is not installed in /etc/init.d/
/sbin/chkconfig boinc-client on
will not set the boinc-client to start automatically when the computer boots.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install boinc-client
2. /sbin/chkconfig boinc-client on
error reading information on service boinc-client: No such file or directory
Daeon should be set to start every time Fedora boots.
Attached is the USAGE_FEDORA documentation along with the ls of my /etc/init.d

ls of my /etc.init.d/
This is because init.d is not udes anymore but system.d.
Daemon script is there : /usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client
But it has a problem anyway. systemd cannot recognize it because its name should be 'boinc-client.service'.
I did the following to fix the service problem:
#ln -s boinc-client boinc-client.service
This is solved by https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/boinc-client-6.12.43-2.r25218svn.fc17
Boinc-client services now seem to work properly. Documenation now seems consistant with system behavior.
