Install BOINC on Mandriva

The installation is quite the same as on Ubuntu. I will just explain the main differences:


  1. To create a project, you need mysqldb and it not available on mandriva. You have to download the source on sourceforge
  2. You need mysql_devel and python_devel.
  3. Untar mysql-python and go in the new directory.
  4. Compile it:

    python build

  5. As root, install it:

    python install


You can use htpasswd in Mandriva but the executable is not at the same location. It is in /usr/sbin/htpasswd
