Boinc is a piece of software that allows to get involved into distributed computing in projects such as WorldCommunityGrid, Rosetta@Home or even LHC@Home. It’s both interesting and put your lazy computers to work.
There’s of course a package in the EPEL repository allowing us to install the software easily. Let’s install it !
yum install epel-release yum install boinc-client Now that this is done, there’s the tricky part. Right after you’ve created your account on the website of the project that you’d like to join, you have to get the account key.
