BOINC does not start anymore, no error

Hai @all,

i have a strange experience with the BOINC again:

After some updates last(?) week i'm not able to start the boincmgr:

$ which boincmgr
$ /usr/bin/boincmgr
$ sudo /usr/bin/boincmgr

After starting it as root the manager starts but all settings are gone, but WUs are there.

So atm i cannot start it from menu (which i did always as user "laza"), not from command line as "laza".

I cannot say, what is broken or missing since that day in the past.

Ohh, and it is kernel 4.11 rc6!

Thanks in advance

Seems to be a problem of the 4.11 kernel.

Booting up the 4.10.12 and it works as expected.
