Helpful hints when installing Boinc 6.12.34 for Linux x64

I use Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit and yesterday I noticed my client report in the messages tab that a new version of Boinc was available. It was released back on July 28 but I never noticed. I removed the old Boinc folder including the hidden file under /home. I installed the newer version but it would not execute, seems that the newer version requires some dependencies not installed by default on Ubuntu. So if trying to upgrade make sure you have these installed first. Can be found in Synaptic.

libcurl3
 
libwxgtk2.8-0
 
libbase2.8-0

I have recently moved several computers over to ubuntu server, not sure how much it differs from ubuntu desktop but here's the instructions I used:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libstdc++6 freeglut3
sudo apt-get install boinc-client

Then reboot or restart boinc-client with:

sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client restart

Then add your project using:

boinccmd --project_attach www.worldcommunitygrid.org (the Account Key from your WCG profile)

and keep checking that boinc is running and downloading WUs with

boinccmd --get_state

Done.

@Liontaur, thanks for the heads up. I run the desktop version. I find it easier to remote desktop in and work my way around with a gui running. Maybe you should also post that info under the Advanced section of the FAQ.
