Hello folks!

We try to build a RakeSearch R10 application for Raspberry Pi. Currently, it runs on the computer 9257 - it's a Raspberry Pi Model 3B+ through an anonymous platform file - app_info.xml.
Vital note: for computing on Pi you must use a combination of heatsinks and airflow! In our case, we install a small aluminum heatsink on the CPU and USB+Network controller and place the board inside desktop computer air outflow. In these conditions temperature of CPU stabilized at 54°C level.

The application compiled on 3B+ model, under Cortex-A53 CPU. You can download it from here and console version of BOINC client, if need (compiled on the same system also) from here. If you want to try a compute on another model of RPi, please post a message, we try to compile a separate test application.

Thank you for attention to the project and happy crunching!

Are you planning an application for raspberry pi 4?

Glad to see you again in the forum! At now, we have no Pi 4, but would you try to run the application for Pi 3 on Pi 4?

Do I need the BOINC-Client from the Download or is the boinc-client from the raspbian-repository OK?

I got the message that Rake Search does not support the type arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf.

Do i need to add a alt_platform Tag in the cc_config.xml?

Great.
The app runs on one of my Odroid-N2 with alt_platform Tag in the cc_config.xml.

respawner, JagDoc, would you share settings? It's interesting and can be useful.
JJAR, fzs600 we try to find simulator or another tool for compile application.

Thank you very much for your enthusiasm!

Hi,

I've installed it on several different ARM based computers, and It's returned validated WUs:

Odroid XU4 running 32-bit Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS and BOINC client 7.16.3.

Odroid C2 running 64-bit Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS and BOINC client 7.16.3 (with the armhf architecture installed by OS, so BOINC client can run 64-bit and 32-bit WUs).

Raspberry Pi 3 model B running 64-bit Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS and BOINC client 7.16.3 (with the armhf architecture installed by OS, so BOINC can run 64-bit and 32-bit WUs).

It looks like WUs can take up to 1.5 days on Odroid XU4 (according to their client's current estimates), so that would be up to 4 days on a RaspberryPi 2 model B - I'll have a go on one later today...

Jon

On the Odroid-N2 with Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu).
In the cc_config.xml:
<options>
<alt_platform>arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>
</options>


For 32 bit (armhf architecture) i run this:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libsfstdc++6
sudo apt install libstdc++6:armhf
sudo reboot

JayDoc, thank you information!
JonS, first task on my RPi runs ~130 000 seconds! But it was one of the longest tasks that I saw at that time. Now I see that CPU Time of most tasks varies between ~27000 and ~90000 seconds.

Thank you!

The applications works for RaspberryPi-4 too. 64bit kernel.
I would like to try to compile an aarch64 version of the application. Is the source code and makefile available?

BOINC for Debian 10 (ARM version) can be found here: http://www.rechenaugust.de/boinc/index.html
