Anything else to test - right now this is just one bank of boards hooked up to the controller.

ok I'll give that a shot.  So I can just pull the female connectors out of the molex plug and hook them up. 

would be better to use these http://www.dx.com/p/2-pin-curved-screw-terminal-block-connectors-green-20-piece-pack-146624#.U3kWnvldV8E

but the female plugs out of a molex will also work fine. make sure you note the +ve and -gnd on the controller board.

The pins are labeled GND and VCC.  do I need to hook up 4 pins or just two

I'm only trying to get a chain of six to work - i get 100% HW errors.  I tried chainminer - couldn't figure that out - so I installed cgminer using the kanos directions. 

It recognizes the boards - sometimes up to 93 chips - never all of them of course. 

I'm powering the Pi using a usb cable.  I am not powering the controller board as there is no way to do so - it has an odd 4 pin connector on it that looks close to a molex - but the molex from the power supply wouldn't fit into it.  Not to sound like a n00b but I'm stumped on that one.

Some one referenced overclocking the pi itself to 900mhz - is there a quick and easy way to do that?

carbon = plant food

but regardless al gore and the other main stream media has gotten everyone to be worried about the co2 coming out of your mouth when you speak.

That being said - saving rainforests - good idea.  if you want another site check out rainforest.org - $50 USD = 1 acre put into trust permanently.

It was the cheapest way I have ever seen.

looks like i needed

sudo apt-get install libwx-perl

The AMDOverdrive needs wxWidgets or so it says in the configure file.

what package is that in?

I'm seeking a way to underclock the ram on a 5830 and 5830 at the command line in linux.

any ideas?

I highly doubt any of the "serious brokers" you refer to have entered the market.  If they did, they didn't bring friends.  A small broker could buy the entire BTC market.  Are some "day trading" with risky accounts - perhaps.

I remember seeing one Lab admin's poster of his SETI @HOME achievement because he set it as the screen saver for all the lab machines.  No one at the University who made decisions seemed to care, but I also doubt they check things like the power bill.

I was hoping for a command line program - not an msi board
193  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: 5850, low temp but still seeing artifacts? on: June 03, 2011, 05:04:12 AM
I was kind of wondering the same thing - this 5850 seems to clock up to whatever you set it at and work.  So whats the "safer" bet.

Also anyone who has the quick and easy way to underclock the memory on the card please let me know

about 10cents kwh.
195  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: What about the "electrical ceiling" ? on: May 28, 2011, 01:17:10 PM
Just make friends with an electrician.  If you have extra slots in your panel, then new breakers isn't that hard to do.  Even upping your service with an extra 100amp panel isn't too bad depending on how much BTC are going for.  But if you are using enough power to light up your current service, then it might be worth while.

Remember with a 200 amp service, you can have more than 200 amps in circuits - it's all about the overall use at any given time.
