I uninstalled freeglut 3 amd reinstalled it, and also updated the libglut.so to the latest version and made the symbolic link (sl). The Client program and
manager program both work good, as they should
. Still can not enter the gui mode. Researched BOINC and there seem to be some question about an xscreensaver is included. Looking through the BOINC directory I have a boincscr which is a screensaver. However It will not execute. I check its properties side by side with another screensaver, and the properties were identical. I think I am going to give it a rest and do a little more research and contact BOINC. Thanks for your email.
