What is lin-seti?
lin-seti is a command-line program allowing the user to mantain a cache of work units for the Seti@Home client. It should run without any problem on unix-like systems, including linux. It is designed to be fully compatible with SETI Driver (a similar software for Windows), so you can share the same cache on dual boot systems. Of course you can use it stand-alone, too.
Points of strength:
None that I know of...
On my machine (and a few others) it has run without any problem for some months. These machines are always powered on, and the client never stopped :-). Of course, if you think you have found a bug please e-mail me and I'll do what I can to fix it.
What is SETI@home?
SETI@home is a distributed computing project born with the purpose of analyzing radio data coming from space, looking for signs of extraterrestrial life.
Officially launched in May 1999, it has become today the most popular distibuted computing project, counting more than three millions registered users.
