Hi
I don't want to use the mounted FAT32 system with the oneBash file because after everyone incorrect restart of nvOC, this file system isn't mounted.

Please help me to understand where I have to ban to mount / dev/sda1 in  /media/m1/1263-A96E/. I want that the file/media/m1/1263-A96E/oneBash was on local file system, not FAT32.

Tnx!

So I have 3x SATA cables/branches with 3x SATA connectors on each. I attached 2x GPUs (which are on 16x USB risers with molex connectors. These risers have molex to sata extenders ) per branch so I dont overload a single branch (3rd SATA connector on each branch is not attached to anything, except one on which I plugged the SSD with nvOC on it). One branch with molex connectors is plugged into the two molex slots on MB.

Alright having 2x per SATA is a good rule thumb. How much power draw per card? And how much from the wall?

1050tis use 68 watts + from the riser; even 1 sata per riser will most likely not be stable:

with 1050tis you need to use pcie 6 pin powered risers and plug the 6 pin pcie cable directly into the riser.

If you are using molex risers one per cable (from the psu to directly plugged into the riser) might be ok; but you really want to use the 6 pin pcie for these.

anyone having issues where, after imaging the USB (Sandisk extreme 32 GB, recommended on here), the USB location disappears from file explorer?  Its still there when I run diskpart.

If you are having weird issues after imaging I recommend doing a full format (not a quick format) of the USB to FAT32 default allocation size and then imaging it again.

Is IPv6 properly configured in the stock nvOC setup?  I first noticed an issue when trying to apt-get upgrade and the update host resolved to an IPv6 address: updates refused to install.  At first, I just worked around it with the instructions at https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/9940/convince-apt-get-not-to-use-ipv6-method to force apt-get to use IPv4 only.

I then set about writing a mining switcher.  Getting the current dollars-per-BTC rate from Coinbase was no problem...one line of Python.  Getting current profitability from NiceHash was a bit more problematic.  Guess what?  api.coinbase.com is IPv4-only, but api.nicehash.com is offered on IPv4 and IPv6.  urllib (and most other Python libraries) prefers IPv6 over IPv4, if IPv6 is available.

ifconfig shows that my nvOC box is getting both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses assigned to it by my router, but any attempt at ping6ing known-working IPv6 hosts (api.nicehash.com, ipv6.google.com, alfter.us) fails as "address unreachable." The Windows 10 box through which I'm typing this message, OTOH, gets through to all of those hosts fine (Windows uses ping for both IPv4 and IPv6, and also appears to prefer IPv6 if available), so my network supports IPv6.  (This Windows 10 box can also boot into Gentoo Linux, and IPv6 works there as well.)

According to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IPv6, IPv6 is supposed to work out of the box.  Has something been done in the nvOC configuration to disable it, and if so, how would one back out these changes so it works again?  I normally use Gentoo, so I'm not too familiar with how Ubuntu manages things.  The aforementioned wiki page links to another page that describes disabling IPv6, but none of that appears to have been done.  I could shut off IPv6 at the router, but I'd rather not have to do that.

Edit: For the time being, I've put api.nicehash.com's IPv4 address in /etc/hosts as a workaround.  It'll break as soon as NiceHash decides to move it to a different IP address, but it'll work for now.

Any good tips or video to get some type of screenshare working? I know it has teamviewer but it says something about daemon not found. Also i know chrome remote desktop doesnt work unfortunately. This is my first non windows experience.

Using Putty as you recomended I got to the point where i could edit the stats but i want to see the miner like a full screenshare.

Thanks so much for what youve done. I have a rig mining to you ethereum (100mh)

My hats off to fullzero!  Thank you for taking the time to put together and maintaining this amazing build.  Back in the BTC days I was stuck with Win 7 and finally dived back in when ETH started it's journey to the moon.  Win7 gave me plenty of instability issues, Win10 gave me low hash rates, Xubuntu gave me plenty of instability as well, specifically with GPUs falling off the bus.  Additionally Xubuntu did not utilize the second CPU core, which made a Kaby Lake CPU run 15-20 degrees hotter.  Under your build, the one Kaby Lake CPU I have runs nice and cool using both cores.  nvOC gave me a completely worry free and easy to use solution.  Again, I thank you!   Here is my current setup

7 Rigs total

OS Build: Yours!  nvOc v0017
MSI Z170 Gaming M5 motherboards w/ May 2017 BIOS
Celeron G3900 Skylake CPUs (except 1 Kaby Lake)
8GB of Corsair DDR4
Samsung EVO 750 SSD (overkill, but this was before I was on nvOC)
33 x Gigabyte 1050Ti (stock boost clock 1506) - 12.5Mh/s ea. on these with no oneBash changes
2 x ZOTAC 1070 Amp Editions - still testing these.  I should be able to bump the mem up by 650Mhz, but they are running much hotter than in Win10.  I did the fuzzy %/TDP math and set them at 105W, but no difference.  Work in progress.
1 x EVGA Classified 980Ti (why not, just collecting dust).
TP Link Smart Plugs for emergency shutdown or cluster power cycle
3 x 15 Amp Circuits
Shelly SSH App for iPhone

Total cranking out an average of 500Mh/s

Future additions include adding 2 more cards (one for the 7th slot and hopefully at least 1 more on the m.2 slot).  I would try for a 9th card, but I heard the second m.2 slot will not hash (even though I'm going to try).  And I will be adding a couple more 1070s to the 7th rig cluster. Grin

@ fullzero  

here is a really detailed build of the nvoc0017  with 2 nvidia 1070's on a

GIGABYTE GA-Z270P-D3 LGA1151 Intel Z270 2-Way Crossfire ATX DDR4 Motherboard.

to all this is a solid board  really good

I tested stable up to 5 amd rx 480's  on win 10 and smos
I tested stable up to 4 1080 ti's on win 10 and win 7  tested up to 3 on nvoc

I am sure it will do 5  on all of the above well maybe not win 7.  I just did not test that high on all os's

The cmd:

Code:
sudo dhclient -v -r

(might help solve the problem, but probably not)

there is a website:

test-ipv6.com

it attempts to help you identify the source of IPv6 problems; it might help, but probably will only tell you what you already know.

I just uploaded a new oneBash that will make using teamviewer slightly easier.

To use teamviewer:

in oneBash set:
Code:
TEAMVIEWER="YES"

If you update you oneBash to the one called:

Newest_oneBash

that is linked at the top of the OP

teamviewer will start with the mining process.

make a free account with teamviewer.

Let me know if this works.

Glad its working for you.   Smiley

I don't have any Gigabyte 1050Tis; but I imagine they are similar to the EVGA Ti SC.  I would recommend trying these settings for Ethash using genoil:

POWERLIMIT="YES"     

POWERLIMIT_WATTS=53 (or lowest)

__CORE_OVERCLOCK=-200  (or lowest)
MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=1000  (then bump up until you get a softcrash)

Newest_oneBash link is up on the OP.

xleejohnx made an SRR implementation for rxOC and nvOC:

it has an SRR switch that works with the SRR file linked next to it.

download SRR and extract it, move it to the:

Code:
/home/m1

folder (the home folder)

set:

Code:
SRR="YES"

in oneBash  and it will launch with the mining process in a guake terminal tab

Make sure you thank xleejohnx for making the implementation and tytanick for making the SRR.   Smiley

Added the following coin selections:
Code:
DMD  GRS  ZPOOL_LYRA2V2  ZPOOL_BLAKE2S

added auto launch of teamviewer GUI when set to YES

added lspci and nvidia settings output to the top of the mining process

I changed the autonaming scheme to be nv<rig_host_address>:

worker names will default to nvXYZ your rig host address (last 3 digits of rig IP)

if your rig host address is less than 100 it will default to nv-XY or nv-X

This afternoon, I knocked together a simple profitability auto-switcher that works with nvOC and NiceHash:

https://gitlab.com/salfter/nvoc-nicehash-switcher

It might also work if you're mining elsewhere, though profitability is determined by NiceHash (as exposed through their API).  It's a Python script that gathers information about what's profitable and calls shell scripts to reconfigure overclocking settings and launch miners on a per-algorithm basis.  It replaces oneBash for normal operation; oneBash is only needed for initial setup or to add/remove GPUs (it manages /etc/X11/xorg.conf).

I tried bringing this up in Links, but it needs JavaScript to work.  I'd need to move the rig closer to where I can plug in a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to see what SJWfox says...maybe tomorrow, as I also want to move nvOC off of an SD card in a USB reader stick to the mining rig's M.2 SATA SSD.

In the meantime, I've gotten enough of a workaround set up that (1) apt-get upgrade works and (2) I have an auto-switcher up and running, as mentioned in my previous post.
