If you are using Fedora, you can get the error "cannot connect to local core client" when you try to start the manager.

To fix it, copy the RPC password hash and give it the correct ownership:

sudo cp /var/lib/boinc/gui_rpc_auth.cfg /home/YourUserName

sudo chown YourUserName : YourUserName /home/YourUserName/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

chmod 664 /home/YourUserName/gui_rpc_auth.cfg

Instruct the BOINC client to start at boot

sudo systemctl enable boinc-client

sudo systemctl start boinc-client
