You do not need to compile a program on account of me... I will gladly switch over to Windows. I just wasn't sure if the program was meant to be run on a 32 bit or 64 bit linux box.

Nowhere does it state that the application is 64 bit


if you run file or readelf it would indicate that it is a 64 bit program. but since you are running a windows computer, that would be irrelevant to you.

It DOES say however that it makes no sense crunching this project on ARM hardware, or when running e.g. FreeBSD on a Intel x86-compatible CPU.


why wouldn't it make sense to try and crunch a 32 bit linux program on FreeBSD? i run several 32 bit linux programs for BOINC projects all the time.

climate prediction, collatz conjecture, asteroids, distributed data mining, edges, einstein, leiden classical, LHC, malariacontrol, prime grid, rosetta, world community grid, yoyo, just to name a few.


you have a windows computer. do you even know anything about linux or BSD?

The apps page description says the i686 linux app is for 32 bit linux computers, however the program itself is a 64 bit program. Is the linux program for this project intended only to be used on 64 bit platforms, or will there be a 32 bit linux program for this project?
