Unable to start boinc-client

When I try to service boinc-client start I get error message:

Code:
[root@hp ~]# service boinc-client start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  start boinc-client.service
Failed to issue method call: Unit boinc-client.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status boinc-client.service' for details.
[root@hp ~]# systemctl status boinc-client.service
boinc-client.service
          Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
          Active: inactive (dead)

[root@hp ~]#
dmesg shows nothing. I can't find anything related to Boinc in /var/log/

I'm using boinc-client-6.12.43-1.r25218svn.fc17.i686 on a system which is updated to the latest fc17 packages. The system was installed from scratch using the F17 KDE Live CD.

Re: Unable to start boinc-client

Boinc runs fine, if I start it with command:

Code:
sudo -u boinc /usr/bin/boinc_client --dir /var/lib/boinc
But I still can't start Boinc using service boinc-client start. It complains No such file or directory (see my first message), but I can't find anywhere information on which file or directory is missing???

Re: Unable to start boinc-client

Maybe boinc wasn't converted over to systemd yet? I installed boinc-client and boinc-manager on my Fedora 16 PC and I see no boinc related files under /lib/systemd or /etc/systemd

What happens if you call the init.d script directly so you circumvent service?:
Code:
/etc/init.d/boinc-client start

I'm using boinc-client-6.12.43-1.r25218svn.fc17.i686 and I think it is converted to systemd:

Code:
$ rpm -ql boinc-client
...
/usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client
...
$ ls /etc/init.d/boinc-clien*
ls: cannot access /etc/init.d/boinc-clien*: No such file or directory
How can I know which file or directory is missing (see the error message in the first message)? Does systemd (or systemctl) have a debugging option or does it write a log somewhere? dmesg shows nothing.

I get this on Fedora 16:

ls -l /etc/init.d/boinc-clien*
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 4516 2011-08-20 13:15 /etc/init.d/boinc-client*
so your /etc/init.d script is missing, it should be from your boinc-client:
Quote:
rpm -ql boinc-client | grep boinc-client
/etc/bash_completion.d/boinc-client
/etc/logrotate.d/boinc-client
/etc/rc.d/init.d/boinc-client
/etc/sysconfig/boinc-client
/usr/share/doc/boinc-client-6.12.35
/usr/share/doc/boinc-client-6.12.35/COPYING
/usr/share/doc/boinc-client-6.12.35/COPYRIGHT
/usr/share/doc/boinc-client-6.12.35/USAGE_FEDORA
(note /etc/init.d is a link to /etc/rc.d/init.d)

Maybe you've found a problem with the package in Fedora 17

Re: Unable to start boinc-client

I have preupgraded form F16 to F17 yesterday and also have the same problem.

Boinc started to work again after renaming /usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client to /usr/lib/systemd/system/boinc-client.service, see BZ 814060.

HTH,
Germán.

I supposed F17 is different from F16 as to where the service files go, when I do a find on F16 for *.service files under /usr/lib/systemd there are almost none there (just /usr/lib/systemd/user/exit.service ).
Fedora 16 service files are mostly under /lib/systemd/system/

Maybe this is because of the F17 file system unification they did

Re: Unable to start boinc-client

Yes I now, but I only added a ".service" suffix to that file.
