Hello everyone;

I was just wondering if anyone is working on porting the new version of SETI@home to OS/2 and eCS. The new version is based on BOINC which would therefore require porting of BOINC before porting SETI-BOINC. The source code for both BOINC and SETI-BOINC is available at: http://setiweb.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah_participate.php

I would be interested in assisting with any porting activities that might be taking place.

Hi

I tried this, but I am a novice at porting programs and need some help
I ran configure to the end after modifying the file slightly but make gives me this
error message
make: *** Recursive variable `AUTOCONF' references itself (eventually). Stop.
I am stuck now.

I would like to use BOINC for the climateprediction program

Dave.

I also would like to use BOINC for Climate Prediction, instead of 2 virtual copies of W2K. If I can help with testing, I will do so happily.

You might try posting your problem to the news groups:

comp.os.os2.programmer.misc

and

comp.os.os2.programmer.porting

which I can access through news.consultron.ca.

One has to register to use this news service..

I have not managed to get anywhere with this porting myself, but I have been contacted by a couple of people who have indicated that they are working on it themselves. If I hear of anyone getting anywhere with any of the BOINC ports I will let you know.
