I read the readme file but i don't know how to copy lib64 content in appropriate directory (permissions?), and i don't know where to find boinc data directory as i'm a complete noob on this OS.

If you feel like a samaritan, plz give me step by step walkthrough to install this on my computer, even in terminal commands, you'll make me very happy. Thank you by advance and sorry for my approxiamtive english.

From the extracted collatz cuda application directory, run the following commands:

su
cp -P lib64/* /usr/lib64/
ldconfig


This will install the necessary libraries. You need to use the root account to do this. Now exit the root account (CTRL-D or "exit") and do the following using the boinc user account, or do this as root if you are using root to run the boinc client:

cp app_info.xml BOINC/projects/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz/
cp collatz_2.04_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__cuda31 BOINC/projects/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz/
cp lib64/libcudart.so.3 BOINC/projects/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz/


Replace BOINC with the path to the folder you extracted from the boinc client package.

I'm in the same situation; just installed Linux Mint 12 (32 bit...for now)on a Xeon Dual CPU Dual Core (4Cores plus HT) running an old ATI 4850 GPU. ATI Catalyst is installed and 'Appears' to be running fine. I've DL'ed and extracted the ....

http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/download/collatz_2.09_i686-pc-linux-gnu__ati14.tar.bz2

Files but have no idea what to do with them

Thanx...

cp lib64/libcudart.so.3 BOINC/projects/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz/


Replace BOINC with the path to the folder you extracted from the boinc client package.



For the benefit of folks that are trying to use this on Ubuntu 11 64-bit, there's no more /usr/lib64 directory. It's now just /usr/lib

However, I just copied the app_info.xml, collatz_2.04_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu_cuda31, and the libcudart.* files into the project directory and it's running right now.

You do need to change the owner of the files to match what's already on the files in the project/boinc.thesonntags.com_collatz directory.
