SETI@home is a distributed computing project using Internet-connected
computers for the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). It
searches for possible evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence in
radio transmissions collected by the Arecibo radio telescope.
This package contains the SETI@home Enhanced application for the BOINC
distributed computing platform. The BOINC client downloads the radio
data which the SETI@home application analyzes looking for signals of
extraterrestrial origin. Results are then send back to the SETI@home
server by the BOINC client.
Note that this package has been primarily created for users of
architectures for which SETI@home does not provide its application.
If your architecture is x86 or AMD64 the BOINC client automatically
downloads the latest SETI@home application if you participate in this
project. There is no need to install this package then, except for
it to take all technical hurdles from you to have your very custom
SETI patch or new compiler flags evaluated. The configuration of
BOINC to find the local SETI binary is all performed by the package.
This package only provides command line application.
The boinc-app-seti-graphics package provides graphic application.
