Configuring

Create a configuration file for the BOINC boot script:

cat > /etc/boinc.conf << "EOF"
# Config file for /etc/rc.d/init.d/boinc

# Owner of BOINC process (must be existing)
USER="boinc"
GROUP="boinc"

# Directory containing BOINC files.
BOINCDIR="/usr"

# Location of the boinc command line binary
BOINCBIN="$BOINCDIR/boinc_client"

# Logfile (/dev/null for nowhere)
LOGFILE="/var/log/boinc.log"

# Options to pass to the boinc client when starting.
BOINCOPTS=""
EOF

Now create the BOINC boot script:

cat > /etc/rc.d/init.d/boinc << "EOF"#!/bin/bash
########################################################################
# Begin $rc_base/init.d/boinc

. ${rc_functions}

checkconfig() {

    cd $BOINCDIR
    if [ ! -f client_state.xml ] ; then
      echo "BOINC client requires initialization first."
      return 1
    fi

}

case "${1}" in
	start)

		checkconfig || exit 1

		# Check for system-wide configuation file.
		if [ -f /etc/boinc.conf ]; then
			. /etc/boinc.conf
		fi
	
		if [ ! -d $BOINCDIR ]; then
			echo "Cannot find boinc directory $BOINCDIR."
			exit 1
		fi

		boot_mesg "Starting BOINC client as a daemon..."
		loadproc $BOINCBIN $BOINCOPTS --daemon 2>$LOGFILE
		;;

	stop)
		# Stop the BOINC client.
		boot_mesg "Stopping BOINC client..."
		killproc boinc
		;;

	restart)
		${0} stop
		sleep 1
		${0} start
		;;

	*)
		echo "Usage: ${0} {start|stop|restart}"
		exit 1
		;;
esac

# End /etc/rc.d/init.d/boinc
