pkg install boinc-client

app_config.xmlby copy-n-pasting from website below. I don't know if they're needed, I did get a warning when I put them in place but empty.  The second time I did an install, I did not do this.
service boinc-client start
boinc_mgrand such - nope. On FreeBSD it seems to be no underscores:
boincmgrjust gives some error about GPU. Simply do a manual add as follows:
boinccmdMUST be run from the
/var/db/boinc/directory. If you try to run it from somewhere else, you will get "Operation failed: authentication error". This is true even though the installer added this dir to your path...
boinccmd --lookup_account http://worldcommunitygrid.org/[your email at their site] [your password at their site]
boinccmd --project_attach http://worldcommunitygrid.org/[account ID]
no database rows found in lookup/enumerate, this just means "user not found". You are talking to a boinc server, you just need to go to that website and create yourself as a user.
The tough part is finding projects that you can connect up. So far I've managed:

man page for
boinccmd --get_messages will list all your install errors
amongst other stuff
While working on this stuff, I'd recommend stopping boinc as a service, then invoking directly from the command line and leaving that window open - this allows you to see your actions and responses immediately. When done, ctrl-c the program and do a service start again.
After attaching to a project like climateprediction.net, upon doing a --messages, I see an error in the log "27: 02-Apr-2020 19:55:54 (user notification) [climateprediction.net] Message from server: This project doesn't support computers of type i386-pc-freebsd". Oh well, must figure out remove...
