When will Linux WUs be available? After the project was revamped there have been no Linux applications.

It's been delayed due to issues due to the different crypto++ versions (and their different default encryption types) used on windows and Linux. I've finally gotten them to all play well together and testing is now underway. CPU will be first followed by GPU apps.

I see that the Boinc Notices says that Linux versions of the 64 bit versions are available for nVidia, however, whenever I try to get any, the reply is that my settings don't allow - only CPU, which I don't want to run as have CPU tasks running on another machine from a different project, but run Collatz on the GPU on that machine. I was able to receive nVidia on a previous installation of Lubuntu 16.04.

I have done a fresh install of 18.04 and have included the boinc-client-nvidia-cuda package. No luck.

Any suggestions? Any additional packages to install?
