I have had Boinc running for 3 days now and when I try to create and attach R@H account, I get the error in the subject.  This is on a Mac and I did not have this issue with a PC.

Where are you getting this error -- you are using the QT wallet to add BOINC?

For macOS, you should install the zip  file: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php

I'll ask MIP to review this since he has a Macintosh. Looks like the code is confusing your macOS with Linux.


You only need to register your CPID once. If you did it on the PC, it is not necessary on the mac.

It seems that BOINC manager and boinccmd command line are installed separately on MacOS (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.14.2_x86_64-apple-darwin.zip). After you install the former, you have to download the latter and copy the contents of "move_to_boinc_dir" to /Applications/BOINCManager.app" or to some directory within global PATH.

And finally I should prepare a quick fix that takes the MacOS case into consideration and goes to the right folder and expect it's already there.
I will have to think about some way to do it in a clean way withour relying on the user accuracy.

Another workaround until this is ready could be just creating the account separately on R@H website and then just associate it  (or as Sunk said, create it on a PC)

Thanks for your help!!
I did what you said, but am now running into another issue.  It wants me to use the -insecure command line option, so I am running the Mac_SA_Secure.sh shell script.  Hopefully this works!  :)

That didn't seem to work.  I downloaded and installed a new copy of Boinc and that didn't work either.  Here is what Terminal is saying:File ownership or permissions are set in a way that
does not allow sandboxed execution of BOINC applications.
To use BOINC anyway, use the -insecure command line option.
To change ownership/permission, reinstall BOINC or run
 the shell script Mac_SA_Secure.sh. (Error code -1005)

I am preparing a change to make Biblepay look for boinccmd in /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/boinccmd
Now it's looking for it in global path

For this you will have to download the Unix command version
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.2.42_i686-apple-darwin.zip

And then move the contents of 'move_to_boinc_dir' folder in zip into /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data so boinccmd can be found there.

Finally wait until I compile version 1.1.6.0 of BiblepayCore.DMG then use that version.
I will keep you posted here.

Change is finished and tested for MacOS, but it involved changing the internal system call to boinccmd so I will have to test this carefully in Linux and Windows before releasing the new version. I'll start working on this tomorrow.

Awesome, thank you for your help!  I just did the download and moved the files to the directory you said.  Once it works on this machine, I will try with another one for testing without any previous files on it.  Once this is complete, will it cause the BBP Core Wallet balances to update and get corrected?  The Mac shows 1000 (from the faucet) and the PC still shows zero.

This is something different. Do you have the same wallet.dat file for both Mac and PC?

I brought the file from the mac and updated the PC and this updated the account balance.  The account balance isn't growing (except for coins I bought), how long should it take before I can see results from the mining?
