There doesn't seem to be one; I get a choice of Windows or Mac. :(
Charity Engine is compatiable with Linux systems and you can read about how to add BOINC our underlying software and attach to Charity Engine in our FAQ on Linux.
Your distro's package is the safest bet for a compatible configuration, but if you are willing to work through any issues for the bleeding edge you can try the generic linux install which is typically tested with the latest Ubuntu version. Or see other linux install options.
Though to do the GPU based contributions at the moment the propriatary drivers must be used to due to stability and feature completeness... as much as I'd like the open source drivers to be able participate as well.
OK, I already have a generic BOINC install done a few weeks ago. I guess nothing's changed since then?
Graham, which Linux distro are you running? And did you install generic BOINC via a package manager or a download from the BOINC website? I think Ubuntu has had a v7 client since 12.04 LTS (Precise)...
That being said... you probably have a v7 client already, in which case you're ahead of the game. Maybe you just need to verify that you have the right (commercial) GPU driver installed so that it will work, as Jon mentioned.
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and I upgraded to boinc_7.2.28 on Sunday. I got an Athlon II X2 255 processor with Radeon 3000 Graphics (and Catalyst driver); not sure that BOINC's able to use that?
The ce2 app available now can't use that Radeon card, some GPU apps are very particular about which cards and driver versions they require. However, there is another ATI app under development that will support more cards.
You may want to opt-in to beta testing on your account settings page, that's the best shot at getting your GPU running sooner rather than later if it isn't supported today.

Done, thanks! :)
