Q.  How do I set a headless up SETI@home on Fedora?
 
A.  Install it:
 
dnf install boinc-client
(For a headless setup boinc-manager isn't neeed) Start the service:
systemctl start boinc-client
You need to change to the boinc user's home folder to use boinccmd
cd ~boinc
Make an account:
boinccmd --create_account http://setiathome.berkeley.edu <email> <password> '<name>'
Find your key:
boinccmd --lookup_account http://setiathome.berkeley.edu <email> <password> <key>
Use the key to attach to the project:
boinccmd --project_attach http://setiathome.berkeley.edu <key>
It should now start working, show what its doing:
boinccmd --get_tasks
