If you mean the package 'boinc-client', you can see what files the
package installed with 'dpkg -L boinc-client'. These two might be of


If you mean the package 'boinc-manager' and a startup script you have
created for that, I suggest you use 'find' or 'locate' to search for
files with a relevant name. Startup scripts are normally located
under /lib/systemd/system, /etc/systemd/system or /etc/init.d.
