BOINC Update

Bug #347632 reported by Xbox Live Fan
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
boinc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic

I just built my first Linux computer with a NVidia 9800 GPU. The version of the BOINC client and manager installed by Synaptic 6.2.12 does not support GPU processing. The current version of BOINC on their web site 6.4.5 does support GPU processing for both x86 and x64 Linux. Are there plans to catch up with the newer version of BOINC in the package manager? All of my Windows computers are already running 6.4.5 or newer versions of BOINC and using their GPU's, but I am new to Linux and limited to using the package manager to install/update applications.
