BOINC can't add any project

Hi, I installed BOINC few month ago on my computer. It worked and I could run project. I launched the update for my manjaro today, and tried to update the project (a new url was needed for the project). So I deleted the project I got, but then I can’t add any other project.

My user is in the boinc group, i followed the wiki, but nothing changes.

When I launch boincmgr I get :

19:33:05: Warning: Mismatch between the program and library build versions detected.
The library used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1013,wx containers,compatible with 2.8),
and your program used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1014,wx containers,compatible with 2.8).

How could I resolve the problem ? Any clue ?

I poked the internet with a stick, and the most common cause for that stderr appears to be one of it’s dependencies, wxgtk3 needing a rebuild.

I can reproduce the stderr with mediainfo-gui which also depends on wxgtk3. However, the program works as expected. My guess is your issue with BOINC is not related.

What does that mean? What happens differently? Are there any informative dialogs?

I can’t embed any media or link, so I have this ‘link’ for the screenshot : pic.infini[dot]fr/EyOlffxj/EXDhA5tC.png.

I only have this, I just can’t add any project.
And on the terminal I copied/past everything I got.

On the wiki I followed these lines :
$ usermod -a -G boinc $(myUserName)
$ cd ~/
$ ln -s /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg gui_rpc_auth.cfg
# chmod 640 gui_rpc_auth.cfg

the log file /var/lib/boinc/stdoutdae.txt :

So nothing new here.

the log file /var/lib/boinc/stderrdae.txt is empty.

I can’t read French and can’t copy & paste the text into a translator. What does it say in English?

It says :
On the left window : “You have no project. Please add a project”
On the central window : "Welcome on . " “Name :” "Web adress : " “WARNING : this project is not registered with BOINC. Make sure you trust it before continuing. To continue click on next”.

Hi,
I want to inform you that this problem (blank project list) is also in the version 7.16.10-1.

Broken here too. I guess I could add work projects without GUI (but I havn’t looked into how to do that yet).
Stable Update path, XFCE and newest (stable) kernel. Didn’t notice it until today. Don’t often open Boinc Manager that often.
Havn’t tried to set it up fresh yet.
The other computer has stopped receiving any work and I can’t re-add the project. Same GUI issue.

Using Boinc CLI is too confusing for me, so i tried another workaround:

  1. install “boinctui” (curses based UI) from repository
  2. run two terminals… in the first run “boinc” (client) and in the second “boinctui”
  3. in “boinctui” press “c” and type “localhost” then “31416” and in the last (pwd) write whole password (it is long) which you will find in gui_rpc_auth.cfg (home folder for me)

Now you can select projects and enjoy crunching.
It seems that Curses UI has limited options but i don’t need to change anything right now.
