I have never used linux or ubuntu. I may should just leave this alone.
thats the point, you dont have to do anything with linux Smiley
just flash it to drive (if you have problem i can help you via team viewer this one time)
then insert your btc,eth and siyacoin addresses and wiola. you can boot it and forget about it.

I want to make this system as simple as possible and in week or two there will be managing rigs via website - simple and easy.

Just an idea of improvment when coming to start up screen options for installing driver option like pre install steps.

Would you like to install drivers etc

AMD
NVID

Next moves on to os drivers such as .net frameworks etc if needed and after this to install miners you want to use on system like ethminer or claymore miner and then to have option to install 1 or the other or both and then crack on with setting up own pools and configurations for them pools to mine on.

I am tempted to mine on linux myself but would like to try this out first when theirs more options and features and usability to it.

New image release v202
                - update will apply itself when rig is online
                - small fix for people who had boot problem
                - new tool for flashing and added INSTRUCTION.txt in zip file

Update to others will be applied after some more tests.

There is one annoying thing about this image - it requires "big" 16 GB USB stick ... I tried two different USB sticks which are 16 GB (on is approx 15.500.000.000 bytes, one approx 15.700.000.000 bytes) and USB Image tools is complaining about being too small ... I had to use 32 GB USB stick to make it work. You should make smaller images, that would fit on any 16 GB US stick.

i picked up two 3.0 32gb sticks for 12 bucks each. I mean compared to ssd or even hdd thats cheap. Why would you complain about something so simple. I have been using this OS on of my rigs for the last 24 hours and is working perfect. It did not help with my detection of my cards however so I am assuming it has to be a bad board. Thnaks for the hard work Tytanick.

Since this is the same miners that are available here on the forums the stats will be about the same. When i looked and my mining speeds with 4 380's and one 380x in this test rig was running at 99.5mh ETH and 1287mh SIA. This was over the last 16 hours. Both miners had 0 invalid shares. Also with this OS you just put it on a flash drive and change the wallet address for ETH, BTC, and SIA in the text file that is written on the drive then plug into your rig. When you hit the power button thats all you have to do. It auto starts and runs everything. Its fairly nice especially if you dont know Ubuntu or linux.

Edit: I think it may be best if the SIA miner is changed to around -decri 40. It is a very small loss on ETH and almost double SIA speed.

1. Why is default Ubuntu language Ubuntu Polish (@tytanick I guess you're from Poland)? It would be nicer to have it default in English for those who would like to mess around with some Ubuntu tweaks.

2. Please note that in case this USB stick is booted on a PC with active integrated on-board GPU (for example Intel on-CPU GPU) with AMD card as secondary card, it won't boot properly (X won't load). If possible you should fix this (not sure if it is even possible due to AMD drivers issues) or else warn users to disable integrated on-board GPU before booting from SimpleMining.net Easy OS

Keep up the good work!

Thx for the info.
1. Yes it is polish, meaby i will change it - its simple. i will think about this and make an auto update.
2. Good to know, i didnt had this problem before but i will look into it.

About 16GB Stick.
I am aware of this problem that ome have little more and some have little less GB.
But i cant find any GOOD simple cloning tool.
Anyway i know how to fix this so meaby i will release like two or three different methods to burn it.

anyway i am currently working on some priorities then:
- central web panel to manage all your rigs from one place (idea is to plug and boot, and the rest of changes should be made via web interface - this is most wanted feature - i just need to make sure that all security is ok)
- support for overclocking and fan control (waiting for updated AMD tools for RX400 cards)
but for R9 3xx/2xx cards there will be another OS soon or meaby an optional update to choose which driver version you want: 15.12 with OC support but not RX400 support, OR 16.30 without OC.
- autologin issue - meaby i will give use password in case of problems
- 3 ways of burning img to pendrive (becasue nothing is BEST)

Keep reporting me any bugs. i will fix them.

hi there.

i discovered simplemining few days ago and gave it a try, since i've had stability problems mining with rx480 in windows (and since ethos still did not yet release support for rx480).

But... it looks like my rx480 gfx was not detected...
https://goo.gl/photos/MXmc8rHvQDZ2MtM79

ideas?

Hi,
hmm, drivers should detect it.
Problem is that i dont have RX480 (at least i wont have it because there is still no OC support in linux) - so for now it makes no sense.
In few days i will release completly new OS but it will be for 200/300 AMD series and it will be many features included Smiley

So about RX480 - i will touch it again where there will be OC support - now it makes no sense to build it futherer with no OC support.
Meaby amd will release new driver with new tools soon, we will see.

hmmm 13 Years Linux Admin and don't know how to do it ?
Don't think that you are a Linux Admin for this time...
I am a Microsoft Senior-Consultant and know how to do this with linux ...

1. Make your Filesystem such small as possible (think should fit in a 2 GB Image)
2. Take a look at this script and port it to your needed settings ...

Code:
#!/bin/sh

reboot_system () {
  umount /boot
  sync
  echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger
  sleep 5
  exit 0
}

check_commands () {
  if ! command -v whiptail > /dev/null; then
      echo ="whiptail not found"
      sleep 5
      return 1
  fi
  for COMMAND in grep cut sed parted fdisk; do
    if ! command -v $COMMAND > /dev/null; then
      FAIL_REASON="$COMMAND not found"
      return 1
    fi
  done
  return 0
}

get_variables () {
  ROOT_PART_DEV=`grep -Eo 'root=[[:graph:]]+' /proc/cmdline | cut -d "=" -f 2-`
  ROOT_PART_NAME=`echo $ROOT_PART_DEV | cut -d "/" -f 3`
  ROOT_DEV_NAME=`echo /sys/block/*/${ROOT_PART_NAME} | cut -d "/" -f 4`
  ROOT_DEV="/dev/${ROOT_DEV_NAME}"
  ROOT_PART_NUM=`cat /sys/block/${ROOT_DEV_NAME}/${ROOT_PART_NAME}/partition`

  BOOT_PART_DEV=`cat /proc/mounts | grep " /boot " | cut -d " " -f 1`
  BOOT_PART_NAME=`echo $BOOT_PART_DEV | cut -d "/" -f 3`
  BOOT_DEV_NAME=`echo /sys/block/*/${BOOT_PART_NAME} | cut -d "/" -f 4`
  BOOT_PART_NUM=`cat /sys/block/${BOOT_DEV_NAME}/${BOOT_PART_NAME}/partition`

  ROOT_DEV_SIZE=`cat /sys/block/${ROOT_DEV_NAME}/size`
  TARGET_END=`expr $ROOT_DEV_SIZE - 1`

  PARTITION_TABLE=`parted -m $ROOT_DEV unit s print | tr -d 's'`

  LAST_PART_NUM=`echo "$PARTITION_TABLE" | tail -n 1 | cut -d ":" -f 1`

  ROOT_PART_LINE=`echo "$PARTITION_TABLE" | grep -e "^${ROOT_PART_NUM}:"`
  ROOT_PART_START=`echo $ROOT_PART_LINE | cut -d ":" -f 2`
  ROOT_PART_END=`echo $ROOT_PART_LINE | cut -d ":" -f 3`
}

check_variables () {

  if [ $ROOT_PART_NUM -ne $LAST_PART_NUM ]; then
    FAIL_REASON="Root partition should be last partition"
    return 1
  fi

  if [ $ROOT_PART_END -gt $TARGET_END ]; then
    FAIL_REASON="Root partition runs past the end of device"
    return 1
  fi

  if [ ! -b $ROOT_DEV ] || [ ! -b $ROOT_PART_DEV ] || [ ! -b $BOOT_PART_DEV ] ; then
    FAIL_REASON="Could not determine partitions"
    return 1
  fi
}

main () {
  get_variables

  if ! check_variables; then
    return 1
  fi
    echo $BOOT_PART_NUM > /sys/module/${BCM_MODULE}/parameters/reboot_part
  fi

  if [ $ROOT_PART_END -eq $TARGET_END ]; then
    reboot_pi
  fi

if ! parted -m $ROOT_DEV u s resizepart $ROOT_PART_NUM $TARGET_END; then
    FAIL_REASON="Root partition resize failed"
    return 1
  fi

  return 0
}

mount -t proc proc /proc
mount -t sysfs sys /sys

mount /boot
sed -i 's/ quiet init=.*$//' /boot/cmdline.txt
mount /boot -o remount,ro
sync

echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq

if ! check_commands; then
  reboot_system
fi

if main; then
  whiptail --infobox "Resized root filesystem. Rebooting in 5 seconds..." 20 60
  sleep 5
else
  sleep 5
  whiptail --msgbox "Could not expand filesystem, please try raspi-config or rc_gui.\n${FAIL_REASON}" 20 60
fi

reboot_system

yes i know it is a little bit work to do, but a Linux Admin with 13 Years experience should know that ...

Few thinks that I not understood:

1. Why are you using Claymore Closed Source miner ? nobody knows what the code would do in later times .... (Botnet, Keylogger etc.) + DEV Fee
2. Why are you not using etherminer and sg/cc miner for SIA / Decred ? there are no DEV fees and it is opensource
3. What could you autoupdate until Rig is online ? (Botnet, Keylogger etc)
4. Why is ssh access not limited to localnetwork only ? (external access could give you full control from everywhere)

Hi, My answers are with red color.


0. First system was made "as soon as possible" to give users at least something to start with.

1. I already made system from zero and its already working - takes about 2,4GB of space.
It will be released very soon when i finish central web managment interface.


2. I didnt told that i dont know how to do it Smiley Dont twist words...
Linux is not the problem. v202 linux image takes about 7GB of space on drive but free tools for cloning in windows are little stupid and make 8GB image (whole pendrive). And as you know one pendrive could have like 8000MB but others could have 7990MB So stupid program will say that the pendrive is too small.
I cant give users linux image and linux flash tool because it wont be compatible under windows.
And my users ARE using windows not linux.....


Your second part of questions:
1. Why are you using Claymore Closed Source miner ? nobody knows what the code would do in later times .... (Botnet, Keylogger etc.) + DEV Fee
There will be more miners but claysmore is most profitable and everyone is using it. Ethereum miner will be also avaible. In more people report to do some feature/miner  - i will do it

2. Why are you not using etherminer and sg/cc miner for SIA / Decred ? there are no DEV fees and it is opensource
Claymore is mote profitable but there is no limitation here, there will be avaible more miners in future - no problem.

3. What could you autoupdate until Rig is online ? (Botnet, Keylogger etc)
I will update security, new version of miners, new scripts, bug fixes, new statistics, features ... etc...
What do i need keylogger for in my OS ? it only mines, you are not suppose to type anything in it accually Smiley
Botnet ? - its not my aim to do that, my aim is to make fully automated OS which you plug and manage from central web.
And when it will be stable there will be some fee for using my OS... % or some $.


4. Why is ssh access not limited to localnetwork only ? (external access could give you full control from everywhere)
I cant make central web managemnt without full access, you should know that.

Any more questions ?
Meaby if you want help me then tell me if there is free good cloning tool which works in linux and can restore to hdd/ssd/usb drives and also uses some compression and writes only partitions and not free space. ?

This is true but dont worry.
Those keys wont do any damage.
There will se little different autentication system in near future.
I figured out little different concept and it will be based only on email autentication.

I need some more days to finish central managment interface.

I already have plenty work to do in my company so please foregive me the delay.

dd for both system with full cap. to configure the blocksize, img. size in combination with gz also capable to compress...
Aviable for unix/linux/windows etc. only write a script for it with needed parameters and it should work.

if you wrote a secure script with all needed parameters, give full instructions how to use it and implement in script to don't allow/display current used partitions (rootvolume/windows-bootvolume) than it is safe. when someone flash his bootpartition than it is natural selection ... that are the guys why are safety instructions are printed on nearly everything  Grin Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

THE FIRST VERSION v1001 HAS BEEN RELEASED. More info on website.

Website: http://simplemining.net

Most wanted info and concept:
- idea is simple: download for free my OS and write it to any drive: Hard / SSD / even USB drive
- after that enter your email and BTC address in config.txt file
- then just insert this drive to your GPU Rig, boot it and thats it
- it will mine best profitable crypto and send BTC to your wallet (as now it mines eth+sc and send them to your addresses)
- for now fee is 0% but in future it will mine to my pool and i will be taking like 2-3%
- i want hear feedback and ideas from you guys

v1001 features:
v1002 Released, features:
- created completly from scratch based on Ubuntu Server
- 2GB download file for flashing (it requires at least 7GB pendrive)
- support for AMD 3xx / 2xx / HD7xxx series (RX400 will be supported in v2000 series in future)
- dashboard managment panel with basic info of each rig (list cards, miner console, gpu temp and fan speed)
- it mines ethereum+siacoin (you need to enter your wallet addresses on website)
- auto updates (if new miner comes out, new features or bug fix, then it will update itself)

What will be next (very soon):
- Overclocking and powertuning options for each rig
- simplified and realtime info updates from your mining rigs (now you need to reload website to see new changes)
- more clear monitoring info (temps, speed visible on rig list)
- more remote commands like: shutdown, reboot, hard reboot, restart miner
- email notifications about problems and other stuff
- youtube video and some screenshots

To do list for later (some of it):
- graphical charts of your GPU rigs (hashrate, GPU temperatures and fan speed)
- second OS line with RX400 series support
- some kind of forum to get feedback and solve problems from you guys
- feature list - list where you can vote which feature you want the most Smiley
- third OS line with nvidia support
- if there will be more profitable crypto i will let you know that why you have to put btc address too
- squeeze profit - i will find a way to squeeze more profit for all my clients

Requirements:
- AMD GPUs R300/R200/HD7xxx series
- hard drive / ssd / usb drive - it must be 8GB or bigger
- at least 1-4GB system memory (depend how much GPUs are you using)

About me
- I am linux admin for about 13 years and crypto miner for 5 years
- Linux, programming, scripting, mining are my hobbies Smiley
- i am honest and simple IT guy who whants to make world better and give something to it
- if you want to make donation BTC: 1ERRVbvV23h51ScH73nQr6TDmaieKNuuVD
- if you want to contact me about anything just write: admin@simplemining.net
