I took a look at the installer. Did you extract the files first? You need to install from command line for the linux/86 version. so you need to enter
" ./boinc_4.13_i686-pc-linux-gnu" (do not enter the quote marks) in the terminal window and then just answer the questions
I used to have the same issues with Redhat and Mandrake. I switched to Slackware and I have never had an install issue since. My best guess is that
some linux distributions are so bloated with every piece of software they can think of that they cause major dependency issues.
