    Grid Computing on Raspberry Pi

    Just spent the last hour or so reading and setting up BOINC on a Raspberry Pi.
    I know that it is not the best in the world but it was a proof of concept that a Raspberry Pi could do grid computing.
    Set it up on Albert@Home - the development branch of Einstein@Home.
    I think that I will let one workunit run and then add some more projects.
    I have another Pi and am awaiting another SD Card from Amazon, so I can add that Pi on.

    If you have a spare Pi hanging around, connect it up and do some good for science.

    Thanks
    Harry

    Sounds very interesting! Rasberry PI Supercomputer with say 10 of them aint gonna break any speed records, but would be a great way to easily show pupils the advantages of Grid computing.

    Any good links you've gleaned during your experiment?

    BOINC on the Raspberry Pi | Ryanteck Blog is a good one and this tutorial Setting up BOINC on your Raspberry Pi | Ryanteck Blog

    Only a few projects run on a Pi
    Expand the operating system to the whole partition
    Set an overclock (I use turbo)

    You will want to install tightvncserver so that you can remotely control a Pi

    I have Einstein@Home running and Enigma@Home running. 1 on each Pi.
