Just so I can link it to the right spot for people trying to get it going here is the instructions.

 

anyone wanting to run rosetta on their pi with Raspbian 64bit this will get you setup we have to set raspbian to be 64bit and then set boinic manager to accept 64bit.

 

open terminal  ctrl+alt+t

 

type:

sudo apt-get install boinc-client boinc-manager

let that install(shortcut will be under pi icon -> system tools-> boinc manager(fyi)) then type:

cd boot

(backup your config.txt file if you like with:  sudo cp config.txt config.old)

sudo nano config.txt

 

scroll to the end and enter

arm_64bit=1

 

to save and exit

ctrl-o

ctrl-x

 

type:

sudo reboot

 

open terminal ctrl+alt+t

type:

uname -a

you should see the following-------------------------------------------------------------------------------->v

Linux raspberrypi 4.19.113-v8+ #1300 SMP PREEMPT Thu Mar 26 17:04:40 GMT 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux

 

then type

cd /etc/boinc-client

sudo nano cc_config.xml

 

 

Then add the options:

<options>

  <alt_platform>aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu</alt_platform>

</options>

 

you should have something that looks like this.

<!--

This is a minimal configuration file cc_config.xml of the BOINC core client.

For a complete list of all available options and logging flags and their

meaning see: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/client_configuration

-->

 

 

<cc_config>

  <log_flags>

    <task>1</task>

    <file_xfer>1</file_xfer>

    <sched_ops>1</sched_ops>

</log_flags>

<options>

  <alt_platform>aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu</alt_platform>

</options>

</cc_config>

 

 

to save and exit

ctrl-o

ctrl-x

 

 

Then type:

sudo systemctl restart boinc-client

 

 

You should now be able to run rosetta at home on the pi4 raspbian

and get some jobs starting instead of errors.
