Re: BOINC again

Adding threads makes no difference, I'm afraid - the configure fails at exactly the same point. I don't think I want to spend more time trying to get this to work, I'm just going to move on and, hopefully, come back to Sabayon in a while to see if I can get Boinc working for me. Many thanks for your...

Re: BOINC again

It didn't work. OK, this is what I've done (apologies for the length). Wipe and re-install Sabayon 6 LXDE (which seems to have cured my other problems, at least) emerge --sync emerge boinc # fails, as expected, with the message saying that curl must be built with the USE="-gnutls" flag USE="-gnutls"...

Re: BOINC again

Yes, I did do that but I think I really have hosed my system - there's a lot more than Boinc that isn't working properly: VLC works fine - until I close it down and then the system freezes to the point where no amount of skinny elephants seem to help; obconf segfaults; wine starts OK, but crashes as...

Re: BOINC again

My apologies for taking so long to get back to you - real life got in the way.

Anyway, I've discovered that I *have* done something very nasty to my system and so I'm going to do a full reinstall of Sabayon. I'll let you know how Boinc goes after I re-install it.

Re: BOINC again

Unfortunately, that just makes things worse - I now get an error saying that the directory cannot be created when I try and run etc/init.d/boinc start. Ho hum. I'm really starting to think that I've done something horrible to my system in trying to learn Sabayon and am starting to contemplate the nu...

Re: BOINC again

Thanks for the reply. I'm not entirely clear, I'm afraid, what to do, however. My /etc/conf.d/boinc file is as follows # Config file for /etc/init.d/boinc # Owner of BOINC process (must be existing) USER="boinc" GROUP="boinc" # Directory with runtime data: Work units, project binaries, user info etc...

BOINC again

Well, I'm making progress with Sabayon and am liking what I'm seeing but, unfortunately, there's a potential show stopper for me in the shape of BOINC. I've successfully (apparently) installed it with a simple emerge boinc; ps aux shows the client is running as a daemon and I've attached to World Co...

Re: Cups-PDF - How do I add a margin?

Thanks for the reply. That all makes sense; unfortunately, ePDFViewer doesn't seem to allow me to adjust, well, anything really :-)

The link looks interesting and I shall investigate it, but it seems as though it'll be easier to switch to a different viewer in the long run.

Many thanks,

David Shaw

Cups-PDF - How do I add a margin?

Hello. Quick introduction before I get to the question. My name's David Shaw and I've been a Linux user since late 2005 although I've only been using Sabayon (and LXDE) for the last 24 hours after finally admitting to myself that I'd outgrown Ubuntu (and Gnome). Now to my problem. Having followed th...
