I pushed on yakkety, debian git and trusty.
thanks for the fix and the useful bug report!
** Description changed:
+ * crash on non-X servers or with PrivateTmp systemd option set
+ [Test Case]
+ * run boinc with idle detection code enabled
+ [Regression Potential]
+ * none, just a NPE fixed.
+ Fixed in yakkety 7.6.32+dfsg-2~build1
When running BOINC without an X-server, or under systemd with PrivateTmp
set to true, a crash occurs (after about 5 minutes). This is because the
idle detection code is trying to open /tmp/.X11-unix, and the error case
(the case where the directory doesn't exist or isn't accessible) isn't
This is documented upstream at
https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues/1530, and fixed with the commit
but hasn't made into a release yet.
This is under Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial), with version 7.6.31+dfsg-6.
