The "SMOS LTCRabbit Edition" USB stick mining operating system

Why should i use "SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition" USB stick mining operating system?
LTC mining requires perfect configuration of your graphic card driver, operating system and the miner software cgminer. It is very hard to configure all this and get the maximum hashrate from your graphic cards.

Therefore, SMOS-Linux.org developed in cooperation with LTCRabbit a mining operating system, which is easy to use and requiring only a minimum of configuration. Just download the operating system, write it to a USB stick, boot your PC from the USB stick, enter you worker username and password (cgminer.conf) and start mining LTC.



Which hardware is supported

Best choice: buy the new AMD R9 280x or older Radeon HD 7950 or HD 7970 (our mining operating system will work out of the box with these cards)
Now supported with SMOS LTCRabbit V2: AMD Radeon HD 7990, R9 270X, R9 290X
AMD Radeon HD Series 7800, 7700, 7300, 6900, 6800, 6700, 6600, 6550D, 6530D, 6500, 6410D, 6370D, 6310D, 6300, 6200, 5900, 5800, 5700, 5600, 5500, 5400 (find optimal settings for these cards here.)
OS supports up to 6 GPUs
OS does not support WLAN sticks only ethernet cable.

Download our LTC mining operating system "SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition"

http://download.ltcrabbit.com/SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition-V2.zip

Extract the ZIP file. You'll find the file SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition-V1.img inside
username: root / password: rabbit
SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition is of course free of donation mining!

Write the image file to your USB stick (Windows)


Download http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/files/latest/download Win32 Disk Imager and extract it
Insert your USB stick (minimum size: 2GB, all data will be erased, USB 2.0 or better 3.0)
Start Win32 Disk Imager
Select "SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition-V1.img" from your disk as "image file" and select the drive letter of your USB stick as "drive". Click "write" to write the image to your USB stick.

Note: if your USB drive letter does not show up in Win32 Disk Imager, you have to format your USB stick to allow windows to show it. Press Start - Run - "diskmgmt.msc" to open Windows Disk Management utiliy. Delete all old partitions on your USb stick and format it with NTFS or FAT32. Then your USB stick will show up in Win32 Disk Imager

Boot from your USB stick

Insert your USB stick containing SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition
Make sure your monitor is connected to your separate AMD Radeon HD graphic card and NOT to your onboard HDMI connector / or onboard graphic card
Boot your PC from the USB stick
If it does not boot from the USB stick, check the boot order in your BIOS.

Configure SMOS-LTCRabbit-Edition

You should see the desktop now
20 seconds after boot, mining automatically starts. Double click on stop_mining on the desktop after mining has started. Stop_mining script gives no feedback, but it does it's job.
Double click on cgminer.conf to open the mining configuration file (see screenshot below)



Replace "yourusername.workername" and "password" with your worker credentials. You find the credentials in your LTCRabbit memberarea, menu "Account" -> "Worker"
If you run a Radeon HD 7950, HD 7970 or R9 280x you are done. Everything is configured already. Click on start_mining on the desktop (again, this script does not give any feedback, but it starts mining).
If you run annother graphic card, please find the http://litecoin.info/Mining_Hardware_Comparison correct settings for you specific card here. You definitely have to find the correct values for:

intensity (-I) Please lower intensity if you experience problems.
thread-concurrency
gpu-thread (-g)
worksize (-w)
If you experience problems, first thing is to disable GPU overclocking by deleting following lines in cgminer.conf:

"gpu-engine" : "1000",
"gpu-powertune" : "20",
"gpu-memclock" : "1250"

Watch your mining rig status remotely
You can watch your rig mining status through annother PC located in your local network. Open the following URL in your browser:

http://YourRigIP:8080

Please replace YourRigIP with the IP address of your mining rig. You can find it in the upper left corner of the desktop (see screenshot above)
You can connect to your rig by SSH (Port 222, Username root, Password rabbit):
Linux: open terminal and enter "ssh root@YourRigIP -p 222"
Windows: use the SSH client Putty to connect to the rig.

Technical details

Want to know things like how to set a static IP for your rig or change the start mining delay after boot?

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Easy Beginner Guide : How to mine LTC + SMOS@LtcRabbit Profit switching LTC pool on: February 04, 2014, 01:07:07 PM


Short Intro about LiteCoins

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant payments to anyone in the world. It is based on the Bitcoin protocol but differs from Bitcoin in that it can be efficiently mined with consumer-grade hardware. Litecoin provides faster transaction confirmations (2.5 minutes on average) and uses a memory-hard, scrypt-based mining proof-of-work algorithm to target the regular computers with GPUs most people already have. The Litecoin network is scheduled to produce 84 million currency units.
One of the aims of Litecoin was to provide a mining algorithm that could run at the same time, on the same hardware used to mine Bitcoins. With the rise of specialized ASICs for Bitcoin, Litecoin continues to satisfy these goals. It is unlikely for ASIC mining to be developed for Litecoin until the currency becomes more widely used.

For more information, visit the Litecoin page.

What we need to mine LiteCoins.

A Ati/Nvidia Gpu Card or a Cpu with Running OS
Mining Software (GuiMiner) or Standalone OS
LiteCoin Wallet
LiteCoin Pool (LtcRabbit)

Nr.1

Downloads Litecoin wallet :
Download The LiteCoin Client for your OS from https://litecoin.org/



Install Litecoin for your OS and start it and wait for updates, your wallet is now ready.

Nr.2

VERY IMPORTANT ONLY FOR ATI USERS !!!


Many people skip this 2rd step, and they end up having extremely bad results...   So, here we go, with bold letters.
Please ensure you have the following dependencies installed
• AMD APP SDK: http://developer.amd.com/tools/hc/AMDAPPSDK/downloads/Pages/default.aspx
• Latest AMD drivers: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

or

Known working for all cards AMD driver (12.Cool:
12.8 32-bit
12.8 64-bit
AVOID 12.10 DRIVERS, THEY SEEM TO BREAK LITECOIN PERFORMANCE. 13.X SEEM TO BE OKAY.

Update your Drivers Install Amd app sdk then one simple reboot.



For Nvidia Download CudaMiner

http://download.ltcrabbit.com/CudaMiner-LTCRabbit-V1.zip

Nr.3



Join a Pool my choice is ltcrabbit.com because of Profit switching LTC pool.

Join LtcRabbit Pool Here : https://www.ltcrabbit.com/

Make an New Account its very simple.
Add  New Worker “My Account” > My Workers > Add a New Worker.
Worker Done.



Pool Ready to Mine some ltc coins Well Done.

Nr.4

On A running Windows System we can use CGMiner LTCRabbit V1.
Download CGMiner LTCRabbit V1 fork for mining Litecoins : http://www.multiupload.nl/WYGWSS0K9B
or
Download from http://download.ltcrabbit.com/CGMiner-LTCRabbit-V1.zip if you dont trust me but no sample batch files.

ATI = CGMINER
NV = CUDAMINER dont have a nv card but steps are the same.

Download unpack ánd run test batch > start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_1.bat  > gpu0 > pcieslot 1



After a short test give it 10 mins you can edit the sample batch file with your worker + pass.
Accepted mean its works Wink and you can change you worker too your own worker.

If you have multi gpus you can test slot_2-4 too.

start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_1.bat >> use gpu 0
start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_2.bat >> use gpu 1
start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_3.bat >> use gpu 2
start_mining_ltcrabbit_slot_4.bat >> use gpu 3

And Yes you can run all cards at the same.

Now Change your worker name + pass into the batch files 1-4 with your own Worker from LtcRabbit.

.\cgminer-3.7.2-windows\cgminer.exe --scrypt -u yourworkeruser.namehere -p yourpasswordhere -o stratum+tcp://eu.ltcrabbit.com:3333 --gpu-platform 0 -d 0 -w 256 -v 1 -I 18 -g 1 -l 1 -T  --thread-concurrency 6144

Please find the correct settings for you specific card here http://litecoin.info/Mining_Hardware.

You definitely have to find the correct values for:
intensity (-I) Please lower intensity if you experience problems.
thread-concurrency
gpu-thread (-g)
worksize (-w)

Save it now and close all other cgminers ,run batch file again.

Be happy with some ltcoins.
