After upgrading boinc-nox from 7.6.33-1 to 7.6.33-2, boinc_client start requiring
I checked the journal via journalctl and found below:
Apr 28 19:40:54 myboincserver boinc_client[396]: /usr/bin/boinc_client: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I believe the dependency setting of boinc_nox package needs to be updated or more likely we need to remove the dependency (since this is nox package).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install boinc_nox-7.6.33-2
2. Start boinc.service by systemctl
This task depends upon

Wow, this is a weird one. I've rebuilt it a few times and it seems to link to libxss randomly about 50% of the times. There must be a race condition somewhere, but I can't figure out where.
Anyway, uploaded one of the good builds. I'll leave this open in case Felix wants to investigate further, because this will probably happen again in the future.

I finally got time to test boinc_nox-7.6.33-3 in my server and confirmed this version doesn't have the problem.
Thank you for rebuilding!
