Hi All,

i am trying to get the Sensor Version 2.61 running on my laptop with Boinc.

After adding the project and adding a new user i get the following logs:

21-Mar-2015 15:04:32 [Radioactive@Home] Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
21-Mar-2015 15:04:32 [Radioactive@Home] Requesting new tasks for CPU
21-Mar-2015 15:04:34 [Radioactive@Home] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
21-Mar-2015 15:04:34 [Radioactive@Home] No tasks sent Radioactivity Monitor is not available for Linux running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU.

Did anyone had the same issue? How can i fix it?

You have to install libs32 on your computer I think...

Thanks for the hint, i am running arch and this is what i needed to do after a fresh installation:

# 1. get yaourt to install aur packages:

# 2. prepare installation
pacman -S make fakeroot boinc-nox yaourt

# 3. install 32bit libs from core repos
pacman -S lib32-glibc lib32-glib2 lib32-pango lib32-libxdamage lib32-libxi lib32-libgl lib32-libxmu

sudo -u <nonroot-user> -i
# 4. install libjpeg6 32bit libs
yaourt -S lib32-libjpeg6

# edit /usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc.service add `--allow_remote_gui_rpc` for remote connection
systemctl enable boinc
systemctl start boinc
# connect via boincmgr, use password in /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg enable boinc

Under Linux, there are a couple of other things you may need to add, since the client runs under its own userid of "boinc" and won't be allowed access to the usb port unless you tell Linux to allow it (it'll just sit there not talking to the sensor until the WU timer expires). See my post on another thread at

... then hopefully you'll have it working.
