Still [email protected] works fine under BOINC in my Raspberry Pi 4 with Libreelec 9.2 following your indications . Let's hope the way towards kernel 5 is not very long...
Boinc's announcement about arm was a bit misleading. It got me excited at first as well. Turns out, they are now supporting arm64, not 32. Even though rpi4 has a 64bit chip, LE runs 32bit software on it (so does raspbian) and that's why it's a no go.
Boinc software does work . World Community Grid and Rosetta projects doesn't seem to acept this CPU (even if they announce they work on ARM Android devices), and LHC seems to not send Working Units. [email protected] works fine.
Can't connect to Folding at home software at port 7396, not sure if it works on Pi.
Update: Performance on the Pi 4 (4gb) is higher than I thought... 1.814 x4 floating point MIPS vs 4.326 x12 on a Ryzen 2600X (with lots of background apps, maybe 4.500 on a clean system...). A pity I can't contribute research at Rosetta and World Community Grid with a Pi that is on 24/7...
Just wondering if it is possible to intall BOINC on a raspberry pi 4 with Libreelec, and if it's more power-efficient than a standar PC. Each World Community Grid working Unit takes like 3 hours on a PC on a ryzen 2600X (12 threads), but it's 95w.
I would like to use my Raspberry to help scientist finding cures for malaria/covid/HIVS etc
