This bug specifically references a case where the password is created
properly. The password that auto generates oui r is put in manually is
inaccessible by the boinc manager. This is due to it being owned by root
and only viewable by the boinc group. The boinc client is run under the
boinc username and group and can thus edit the file. Boinc Manager is run
under the local username and thus cannot access the password in the file.
Creation if the files password or lack thereof is technically a different
The possible solutions that come to mind are
1. Make the file world readable or at least readable to the local user
2. Make Boinc Manager an elevated task much like the package manager apps.
I'm sure there are other solutions but I am not a programmer or packager.
