I thought that looking in WUProp data would have been a good place to check for other apps I may have missed to run on my Pi2 but nothing exists. It doesn't show my Pi2 as one of my CPUs and I don't see any in the data. I get hours. Neither of my tablets are listed either. Any plans to get that data in the results?

I've got a Pi 2B running Raspbien. It shows up in WUProp.

A couple teams members (Project Blue Book) have pi's and droids. I check their BOINCstats for projects and apps. We've got a Yahoo group and discuss this stuff from time to time. There are a few Pi apps that i've not been able to get to run. I'm considering having more than one SD card to see if different versions work or don't.

I get the hours but I don't see it in the results.

I did miss the ARM devices section but I don't see results for any Pi.

This might have been discussed. RakeSearch now has an optimized binary that runs on (at least) a pi 3. This makes RakeSearch a pi app, at least. I'm using rakesearch_linux_arm_v7l.tgz for the pi 3 on Raspbian Stretch.

I'm not running a 64 bit pi OS. This should work on such a beast, but i haven't tested it. I also have a pi 2, and pi zeros. I have not yet tested this on these. I'm not sure if they'll work. This app should also work on most droids. There's a 2nd Arm app that might work on a banana pi or higher end droid. I don't have these devices. I don't even know where the droid puts boinc, or how one might install it. But there's a very good chance that it will work. The xml file tells boinc what app to use, and it uses it.

The announcement is here:
http://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/forum_thread.php?id=39

Click on the github link. Click on the rakesearch_linux_arm_v7l.tgz link to download it.

If you haven't already, install boinc:
sudo apt-get install boinc
Use the boinc manager to add rakesearch. Ignore the warning that you may not get units. I get units all the time. The URL is
http://rake.boincfast.ru/rakesearch/
Go to the right folder:
sudo bash
cd /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/rake.boincfast.ru_rakesearch/
Extract the archive:
tar xvf ~/pi/rakesearch_linux_arm_v7l.tgz

Restart (you could probably restart the boinc service instead):
shutdown -r

I see units complete in 5 to 6 hours on the pi 3. Of course, hours are hours, but i'm getting a ton of credit for a pi app. On an x86, i'm getting a ton of credit for an x86 app. The app is 5x to 10x faster than the standard x86 app. In fact, the pi 3 is finishing units in the same time that my (older) x86 used to take. On my older x86, the version i use makes use of sse2 SIMD instructions to speed this app up. Something similar is used on the Arm. It's very, very good work.

The new app is very stable. I personally haven't seen any issues with it. I've only been using it a couple days. Still, that's hundreds of units.

Stephen.

Nice, I have a Pi2 so it would be interesting if that will work. It's nearing 10k hours in another app so it could switch soon.

In the past I answered similar question about Android/ARM apps here, please take a look: http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/forum_thread.php?id=162&postid=5492#5492
