Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to get a ARM versión of DENIS for Raspberry pi 2. I think it would be interesting to attract new users who want to use their Raspberry Pi. Asteroid@home has tasks for Raspberry Pi that consumes 2.5 days, I guess DENIS will be short.

I don't know technical details about BOINC but may it would be easy to compile to ARM. Raspberry Pi uses a linux distro based on DEBIAN, so I guess it will be easier than ANDROID version.

A mi también me gustaría que hubiera una versión para la raspberry pi 2 ya que la tengo encendida todo el año y en el ordenador no me voy a molestar en ponerla porque gasta mucha energía.

Once we get a stable version of the app we will try to port it to android and raspberry pi.

Cuando tengamos una versión estable de la aplicación intentaremos portarla a Rasbperry Pi y android.

Best regards, Joel.

WorldCommunityGrid (WCG) have an Android version for 1 of their current projects, and like the rest of their work, it runs under BOINC.
So if the DENIS science program was compiled for Android, it would probably run under WCG's version of BOINC, which can be downloaded via WCG now.
No R.Pi stuff there though.

I have no experience with WCG on Android, but it seems to have problems.
Android devices do not have enough cooling for the CPU to run continuously, and I think overheating often causes crashes. Also, it's not feasible to run them on battery power, so the default settings are to run WCG only when on charge. But running on charge 24/7 damages the battery on many devices.
I think WCG made the Android app mainly to attract new volunteers, hoping that some would decide they wanted to contribute to science and that some of those would donate CPU time from their PCs and do some Real Work.
See WCG's Android Support Forum at http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/listthreads?forum=580
Note that the WCG Android app won't work on R.Pi, unless maybe you port Android to R.Pi.

Raspberry Pi could be much more useful than Android, because owners could put cooling heatsinks on the CPUs and cool them with fans. They would run off mains-powered PSUs instead of batteries. Clusters of R.Pi-s would do Real Work and may consume less power than PCs. But there are few R.Pi owners compared to Android owners, so it may not be worthwhile for scientists to make R.Pi versions of their software.

Me uno a la petición, por mucho que la potencia de la raspy sea paupérrima...
