Some good soul please care for this page.

To describe:


These instructions were tested successfully in 3/2012

There is yet not BOINC package in Debian backports. Here is to create one for it

Retrieve old source code

git clone git://
cd scripts
./export-boinc -r 6.12.43
mv ./boinc_6.12.43+dfsg.orig.tar.gz ..
cd ..

Untar it and get current Debian build instructions in

tar xzvf ./boinc_6.12.43+dfsg.orig.tar.gz
git clone git://
cd boinc-6.12.43+dfsg
cp -r ../boinc/debian .

So, it seems like those backports are closer to upstream than anyone may expect.
