I've been playing around with a Raspberry Pi....How feasible would it be to run Enigma on it? I know it doesn't really compare to an Athlon or anything, but it only draws 500mA. It could run for ever, though I'm not too convinced the SDcard would. I've attached it to Radioactive (suspended), I'm just waiting until they sort the next batch of detectors out.

I'm not sure about the performance, but I'll try to build app for Pi in the near future, just have to ask for remote access again.

Radioactive@Home app for Pi works fine, there is already one Pi which is running Raspbian with a sensor connected http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/show_host_detail.php?hostid=4128

I'm in the process of setting up some form of remote access on this one which you are welcome to use. My router won't let me access other machines on the local network, so I'm off out to try it from "outside".

I have access to the machine which I used to build & test radioactive@home app, it saved me a lot of time, because compiling the BOINC libs is a very long process on Pi.
I got the app built already, now I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with wrapper, because every now and then it reports CPU time greater than wall clock time which is impossible (it also affects Windows).

One of the pi work units has disappeared after being visible for a few days.

http://www.enigmaathome.net/results.php?hostid=86726

It has 19 credits total, but the 10-credit unit isn't there anymore. It's not a problem, but I thought it's just a bit odd.

It's nothing unusual, the workunits are deleted after a couple of days.
I see that no CPU time is reported, I'll have to fix this.
