From the ocsetiteam.com diskless linux cluster how to:


Here is a direct link to the command line client download page Seti Client. Make sure you get the gnulibc2.1 client.
http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/unix.html

If you are familiar with linux, you will have no trouble with this, but if you are not…. The file needs to be untarred (zip files in linux, essentially)

At a command prompt:

tar –xvf setiathome-3.03.i386-pc-linux-gnu-gnulibc2.1.tar


A bunch of us use linux for seti, try posting in the seti group for faster service. :)

See also the sticky in this forum started by me. SpeeDj added a bit into one of my posts on running SETI in Linux.
