42  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / BAMT 0.51? Where? on: April 25, 2013, 05:01:47 AM
http://bamtlinux.org/

I've been having the WORST time trying to get anything up and going on this machine. I finally got basic bitcoin mining going thanks to BAMT but I wanted to mine litecoin. I cannot seem to update cgminer in order to get this to work. I've invested countless hours into this already and was hoping there would be anything out there that would work. I noticed this. It claims to have an updated version of cgminer on it but there's no download release. A google search shows torrent links but they don't get past 30%~. Any idea if this is legit and any idea where I might find it if it is?

Once I get litecoin working, I'll work on that.

So far I'm having nothing but trouble getting litecoin working. I THINK I finally got cgminer updated. Then I make a config file and run
./cgminer --config cgminer.conf" only to be told "--config: JSON decode of file 'cgminer.conf' failed". I copied over example config files. I have no clue what's going on.

So I got bitcoin mining up and running on it with BAMT which is cool. I unplugged the monitor cable after I had it running to use my normal computer while that rig mined. When I hooked the cable back in today to see how things were going, it stopped mining the entire time until I replugged in the monitor cable. What's up with that? I never had that issue in Windows.

I'll give it a try in a bit. Is it difficult to set up mining for litecoin and other altcoins through BAMT?

So I had planned to just run an OS right off of a 16GB usb drive instead of forking over extra money, space and power for a big hard drive. I tried probably every tutorial out there on how to get ANY miner set up and going in linux and everything has failed me. I've tried 3 different distros with no luck. Something always goes wrong and I get errors. Either that or the OS stops working right part way through the tutorial. So I thought I'd just go with what I already know, Windows. But apparently you can't install windows to a USB drive. Google searches only bring up how to install windows FROM a usb drive for people with no optical drives. I'm having trouble here. I won't have the money for a HDD for some time. I had planned on this working.

Another thing I thought of was using an old Pata drive. But the mobo doesn't support it. I have a PCI raid controller that accepts IDE so I tried that but there's no option to boot from that drive so windows won't let me install to it.

I'm not sure what's going on. I've left this guy on for 3 straight days and the hash rate seems to be fine. Sometimes it says "connection problem" for just a second or so. I tried running it through the command prompt software and it says "dead" after about a day of mining. I'm not sure what's going on.

I just mined for over a day too with no reward so far.

I can't connect to coinotron. It gives me errors when I try.

I'm in the process of purchasing btc in a hurry but didn't know about mtgox changing their validation system. Now I'll have to submit documents and wait even longer to be able to transfer funds from dwolla unless someone here is willing to sell.

The more they tell us,the more the competition knows.

My preorder money entitles me to nothing but a finished product being delivered by the date promised,IMO..............

If were a shareholder I would have bonds or something to show for it,correct??

I have nothing but a promise,that's good enough for me  Wink

Well, you'd have shares of their stock and voting privileges. But you know all of that before you invest in a company.

In this case, BFL did not say anything except that they were going to be producing ASIC mining equipment at certain specifications and anyone who wanted to preorder was welcome to do so. Anything beyond that is extra. The customers here are nothing like shareholders and are entitled to nothing except their product. I don't remember reading anything by BFL saying they were going to be super transparent and give daily or weekly updates on every tiny little detail of what's going on.

Maybe that'll happen. But also remember that those Avalon units aren't all going to be $1300. The next ones will be $2000 if I remember correctly.
52  Other / Off-topic / Re: What's going to happen to the old returned BFL Singles and Mini-Rigs? on: October 07, 2012, 05:38:13 AM
They'll be added to Inaba's 480Ghps farm.

Meanwhile, the customers who send in their trade-ins will receive bricks, or nothing, and BFL will claim shipping delays (if nothing is shipped) or a firmware problem (if bricks are shipped) or similar.

Then they will have your millions in pre-order monies, all your trade-in FPGAs to mine with, and you will have nothing but frustration.

Call me a pessimist.

What happened to your hashrate sig Inaba?  Was that a little too much truth for ppl to handle seeing?

Q. You are going to have an unfair advantage when it comes to mining equipment, you’ll be able to get as much as you want before anyone else!
 A. I will not be expanding my mining footprint as it would be a conflict of interest.

And how are they going to get away with it when hundreds or thousands of people are claiming fraud?

When they end up actually shipping, you're going to look like a giant idiot and I expect you'll start a new account out of such serious embarrassment.

And even Avalon have acknowledged that BFL's specs are very possible and that they see them as a serious competitor.

Before BFL's competition came along, the tin foil hat guys claimed that such specs are impossible and that the whole thing is a scam. Now they either find new reasons or I guess they assume that all of the competition and even forum moderators and other major people in the bitcoin community are all in the conspiracy together. Let's ignore the fact that these people have been accepting bank wires and paypal payments and that their full names have been disclosed to the public.

Being skeptical is one thing. Maybe they aren't as cool and collected as they seem. Maybe they are far behind schedule and won't ship the products until much later. Some people have some legitimate questions that I'm sure BFL will soon answer. But attacking them over every tiny little thing and accusing them of being major scammers with ZERO evidence and despite the fact that they have already proven themselves to be a legitimate business shipping real products... I just can't wrap my head around how people can be this stupid.

This same shit happened over at Open Pandora. People accused them of being scammers. People said their product would never ship. Yet thousands of people now own and love Pandoras. This same shit happened with Pier Solar. Oh, it's vaporware. They are just going to run with the money. But I now have a factory sealed copy of Pier Solar sitting on my shelf. This same shit happens everywhere. Do people get scammed with bitcoins? Sure. But the successful scammers always do it in a very smart way where they won't get caught. How on earth would BFL get away with this? Someone should make a documentary about this shit all Loose Change style. I'd watch it and eat popcorn while my shiny new BFL product is mining me some bitcoins.

55  Other / Off-topic / Re: Butterfly Labs is going to give lifetime warranty on: October 06, 2012, 03:13:49 AM
have you ever had memory fail? I thought I did once but it was incorrectly inserted, lol.
All good memory makers give lifetime warranty.
Memory has one of the highest failure rates of any computer component. If there's a hardware issue with a computer it almost always has to do with the ram or hard drive.
Umm I don't think so. Working the past 2 1/2 years as I data recovery technician, I'll give you the dead hard drives. I see a lot of those, but that's kind of our focus. However, I've only seen a handful of cases where the memory was bad, and they were usually old sticks(10+ years), damaged through ESD, or both.

You wanna talk about failing components? Assuming we're not talking about DOA, I'd be willing to bet budging caps, dead hard drives, faulty PSUs, or OCZ SSDs all have higher failure rates than any RAM chip.

I've worked for the past 7 years as a computer repair technician and 25%~ of hardware failures that I've worked on have been related to faulty memory. I've run into faulty memory on my own machines a couple of times as well. There's a damn good reason why memtest86 is so popular and why RAM diagnostic tools are often built into operating system boot discs and even the bios of many motherboards. RAM fails.. a lot.

You're right about the power supplies. That also have high failure rates.

If this really were a scam  and they got away with it, it would be one of the most genius and elaborate scams ever conducted on the internet. They pretend to be a real business and sell real products only to, more than a year later, take a bunch of money and run even though they are allowing bank wires for payment. Maybe the three other competitors are also in it. They even got Inaba in it. This is just false flag 9/11 all over again.

These people have already confirmed they are a legitimate business for a long time. Many of the scam conspiracy theories have been debunked over and over. There is zero evidence that this is a scam. If you really think it's a scam then just don't order. It's pretty simple. There's no reason to spam every single BFL thread with your nonsense.

Does Shadowrun have the case and/or manual with it?

Nope, just the cartridge. 

Most of the games do not include a case/manual actually but I'll let you guys know before I ship / if you PM.

=( I need a manual and you don't know how excited I get about Shadowrun.

I tried to put in an order and I selected BTC as the payment option but there is no information on where I should send the coins. When I submitted the form the page changed to some blog post which is supposed to have a few pictures of the chips but only one of the pictures was working.

Then I get an email saying "Feel free to try again if you'd rather pay with Bitcoins, but remember you have 15 minutes to do so on the website."

Can anyone help me out?
