Optimized BOINC and SETI Clients for Linux (in collaboration with Chris Bosshard)

Please check out my new site,, offering IT consultancy in Pembrokeshire. We specialize in spam-free email hosting and other custom Linux solutions.


This site is now depreciated. Most of the information related to BOINC/SETI which has now been replaced by SETI-Enhanced. This site will remain as an historical reference. For more up to date information, readers are referred to Simon Zadra's excellent site.

SETI 4.07 clients (depreciated)

All SETI clients are statically compiled using highly optimized FFTW3 Fast Fourier Transform routines affording significant performance increases. Athlon-XP uses SSE and Athlon64 uses SSE and SSE2.

Special thanks to Chris Bosshard for his excellent work in collaborating with me on the latest BOINC and SETI Clients. Many thanks to everyone who has helped in the production and testing of these clients (you know who you are) without whom this would have not have been possible.

The Athlon64 SETI client is a 32-bit client so will run on both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (X86-64) Linux installations. 64-bit compiles for Athlon64 are actually significantly slower.

Note about version numbers: A bug caused these clients to be incorrectly labelled as V4.70. They are really V4.07 and this will be fixed in the next release.

BOINC 4.19 clients (depreciated)
