** Description changed:
- BOINC client 7.16.6 packaged for Ubuntu 20.04 fails to detect when the
- system is idle. So, if you set your projects to run after the system has
- been idle for x minutes, computations will never start and remain in
- status "Suspended - computer is in use" state forever.
+ [ Impact ]
+ BOINC client 7.16.6 packaged for Ubuntu 20.04 fails to detect when the system is idle. So, if you set your projects to run after the system has been idle for x minutes, computations will never start and remain in status "Suspended - computer is in use" state forever.
This is a regression compared to older versions (7.16.3 for instance).
Seems to be fixed upstream in 7.16.11, see: https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues/3715
+ [ Test case ]
+ * Open boinc and set to run only if the system is idle, in syslog you will spot lots of "permission denied" and it won't detect the idle time without starting
+ [ Regression Potential ]
+ * Low, the current code looks broken due two bugs, one permission denied issue fixed with a service file change, and the other in the detection code due to a wrong variable being used
+ [ Other info ]
