Hi. I have just downloaded TCL with the intention to run BOINC in it.
I read you have run into problems and finally got it running.
Will you please share the instructions on how to install it?

I have just sent boinc extension for including in repository. Note that it does not include an init script like others distros...User must do it manually from command-line.

For those concerned about disk usage, read this: http://www.boinc-wiki.info/Disk_Usage_Preferences (This also applies to RAM)

Thanks AmatCoder. The BOINC extension is an important addition to TCL, especially since the BOINC developers don't seem to try for Linux compatibility beyond Ubuntu. We don't all use that.

FWIW, BOINC on my PC has been chugging away for almost two weeks, and has successfully processed a number of seti@home work units. There are several other projects available through the BOINC site as well. Hopefully something to interest a lot of TCL users.
