MGA8-64 MATE on Acer Aspire 5253
No installation issues.
Used boincmgr to create an account and select a project (Asteroids@home) and let it start running. I saw the count increase to 0.003%, sufficinet enough something was being processes.
If someone can do some test in the arm and aarch area's. I will agree on the OK.
FWIW, I am running it OK in Mageia 9, reusing project folder and settings from mga8. (fresh install, kept home and data)
I haven't used boinc in a long time and my aarch64 rpi4b doesn't have enough
space, and already gets pretty hot, so just testing that in installs cleanly,
boincmgr runs, and connects to the boinc website. Same on my x86_64 install
where I stopped using boinc due to overheating and space.
Validating the update.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
