BOINC Screensaver

Postby stroudmw » 2017-09-05 11:57

I've just installed the BOINC screensaver as well as the BOINC Manager using Synaptec, and I've upgraded them from the stretch-backports repo. I've got the BOINC Manager running SETI@home. I installed xscreensaver, and edited the .xscreensaver file in my home directory to include: - GL: boincscr -root - \n\. However, all I get when I run the screensaver is a black screen with the message "screensaver loading".

Can anyone help, please? My trusty 32 bit HP-asaurus ProLiant ML110 setup is as follows:
4.11.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 4.11.6-1~bpo9+1 (2017-07-09) i686 GNU/Linux
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Rage XL PCI (rev 27)
3Gb RAM.
2x250Gb HDD (RAID 0)
