Pirates running Linux may get the lalanne application, which is being used to test building a portable graphics app for Linux. This requires a mix of static libraries (for the things not on every box) and dynamic libraries (for the GL and X11 graphics on your box) and it's tricky stuff. Missing library errors are likely until we get the mix right.

How can i do that?

I run Pirates on 2 Linux-Computers and 2 Windows-Computers.
The Windows-Computers earn a lot of Credits, but the Linux-Computers get no workunits.

Every time i get some WUs for my Windows-Computers, i try to get also some for the LINUX-Computers, but your server give me the message "No work from Project", if i try again to download some WUs on a Windows Machine, i get WUs without any problem.

Does Pirates not run on Linux ???

What can i do ???

At present we don't have a working application on Linux. It's on the list of things to get working, but that list is getting rather long.

> What can i do ???

Stay connected and wait and see what happens.

Pirates does run on Linux, just not all the time. More often we release
work to test the application on Windows, but sometimes also Linux.

You know, we BSD users don’t need the graphics,
as we have all the girls ☺

(There might be some which would like graphics,
but my BOINC process has no access rights to X11.)
