Do you have to plug a screen or a headless hdmi plug to mine at full speed as with RX cards?
Thanks

Should only need to to plug a screen or a headless hdmi plug during boot with the amd beta.

What? I think I dont understand: your OS will work with AMD? I was saying that because I have AMD rigs running under windows and I have to plug a screen to get full speed.
I have ordered few 1060 to test your OS bug if you also support AMD it would be AMAZING !

Maybe a stupid question but how do you know what is the first GPU port on the mother board? is it always the top port (pci 1x)?

Thanks, and as the others said, if your OS work as advertised, you deserve more thant just a tip... Smiley

There is an amd version that supports rx series cards (see the OP), but it is very limited only supports fan speed (on OC implementation). 

With nvOC you don't need to attach anything to your rig; it can be completely headless. 

gpu0 is usually the first 16x (full slot) on the motherboard.

Really want a version that can do both cards in one rig since I have amd cards coming as well.

Unless I am mistaken; only Claymore Ethash can support mining with both AMD and Nvidia on the same rig.  This can be implemented, see: 

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg19055518#msg19055518

But it will never be as stable as a pure red or green rig.

Thanks for everything and all the help! Quick question for some reason today after I had to restart on boot up rather then going straight to the desktop and starting the miner it goes to a login screen and when I type in the miner1 password it accepts it flashes black and the asks for the password again. Any clue on how to solve this?

I received my Lexar thumb drives today.  HDD Raw Copy Tool ran at 49MB/sec writing the image to the drive, compared with my old Samsung 32GB that wrote at 25MB/sec.  Thanks for the suggestion, OP.

I've also had this happen.  Most recently it was when I shut down and added my newest 2 GPUs to the original 5.  I resorted to re-imaging to fix it.

OP mentioned quite a few pages back that if you're going to make any hardware changes you should start off with a freshly imaged thumb drive.  That was in regards to a BIOS update.  Have you made any hardware changes?

Everything is up and running. Thanks so much OP. Do you have a wallet I can donate something to?

One quick question. How can I monitor mining through ssh without closing the mining process and opening on the remote pc. (at least that's how I understand the guide you provided).

I was thinking of something like the last step in this guide, where you use a screen? http://www.cryptobadger.com/2017/04/build-ethereum-mining-rig-linux/

For now I can use nvidia-smi to monitor temps at least.

fullzero,

Is there a way to adjust the dual mining within the claymore?

As if I activate dual mining I loos about 5 MH/s in this mode, when normally I can adjust it via the -dcri when using Claymore on its own. I didn't see anything but could have overlooked it within the Onebash.

It'll be in the onebash file and you might have to add it on the line for claymore

Quick question, does this look like where my Power Sw needs to be plugged into? and an even dumber question, what does the other end plug into? Last hardware setup step for me

It looks right
The other end looks like a push button

keepitsane are you connecting your monitor to the motherboard? 

If you have been attach it to the primary GPU (the one attached to the first 16x slot on the mobo) . 

If that was the case: You should then be able to apply this fix to restore the blanked xorg.conf: 

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg19449945#msg19449945

The other situation I can think of where this might happen is if you have an amd card mixed into your rig; nvOC will not work if an amd card is present.

If neither of these are the case; I would reimage the USB as UberDaemon suggested.

if when you start screen you use this argument:

Code:
screen -dmS rig1

replacing rig1 with any name

screen with launch as a background process

in theory it should continue to run if you detach from the screen pressing:
Code:
CTRL + D

then you should in theory also be able to reattach to the screen with:

Code:
% screen -r

I am saying 'in theory' because I just read the article you linked and haven't tried this.

I will get around to delving into the depths of screen configurations at some point.

My performance is lower than it is on ethOS or in Windows. I have two 1070s and 4 1060 6GB. On those with no overclock I get around 120MH/s in other OSes. Here with a +300 memory OC I am only getting 105MH/s dual mining eth and sia. I lowered the dcri value to the same number. I didn't set a power limit, maybe that will do it.

xleejohnx is right, on whatever dual coin you are mining; go to the bottom of oneBash and look for the corresponding block of code.

for example if I was looking for DUAL_ETH_SC I would find the block:

Code:
if [ $COIN == "DUAL_ETH_SC" ]
then
HCD='/home/m1/9.0/ethdcrminer64'
ETHADDR="$ETH_ADDRESS/$ETH_WORKER"

if [ $ETHERMINEdotORG == "YES" ]
then
ETHADDR="$ETH_ADDRESS.$ETH_WORKER"
fi

SCADDR="$SC_ADDRESS/$SC_WORKER"
until $HCD -epool $ETH_POOL -ewal $ETHADDR -epsw x -allpools 1 -dpool $SC_POOL -dwal $SCADDR -dpsw x -dcoin sc -dcri 70
   do
   echo "FAILURE; reinit in 5" >&2
   sleep 5
done
fi

and find the line:

Code:
until $HCD -epool $ETH_POOL -ewal $ETHADDR -epsw x -allpools 1 -dpool $SC_POOL -dwal $SCADDR -dpsw x -dcoin sc -dcri 70

Then change the number after -dcri as desired.

If the coin you are using doesn't have -dcri  at the end of the line that starts with: until

add it to the end with the desired number

save oneBash

If you scroll to the top of the mining process do you see OC messages for core and memory for each card?

If so:

try +200 core clock and +900 memory clock

if that hard or soft crashes, try:

try +100 core clock and +600 memory clock

also what model 1070s and 1060s?

These are even faster, but a bit pricey:

EVGA superclocked 1070s and gigabyte gaming g1 1060s. Let me try the new settings

edit: looks like it crashed on the original settings with cannot get current temperatures

I may try individual clocks and see if one of the cards is the problem.

I'm benchmarking dual mining ETH+LBC on a Gigabyte 1070 Mini ITX (another 5 are en route) and found that nvOC isn't performing quite as well as Windows, with these settings:

PL 115
CC 250
MC 900
-dcri 50

nvOC is producing:
ETH 23.8MH/s
LBC 32.8MH/s

But Windows 10 with the latest nvidia drivers, claymore miner 9.5 and MSI Afterburner 4.4 Beta 10 set to:

PL 105
CC 250
MC 850
-dcri 50

I'm seeing:
ETH 29MH/s
LBC 40MH/s

Could this be because of the newer version of Claymore? Or something else?

As a lot of members have had problems with various 16gb USB keys this would solve that problem; although I think I can cut down the size more and ensure it will work with all (claimed) 16gb drives.  

The main reason I don't want to switch to 32 is many users already have 16gb USBs and switching to 32 would force them to buy another USB key.  

I will start recommending only 32gb drives from now on.

I would say that is the best route.  No reason to switch things up over night, but perhaps a slow transition.  The USB sticks are less than a half percent of the rig cost and the project is still rather young.  Of course, it all depends on if you see any value in the extra space.

Everything is up and running. Thanks so much OP. Do you have a wallet I can donate something to?

Popular sentiment but he won't take anything right now!  Unbelievable for what fullzero is offering and the intimate level of support.  We're going to have to organize a mine for fullzero day at some point.  In the meantime, I would say either mine his addresses on your own for a day or perhaps leave his address on the XMR CPU plus.

yeah it is a similar performance drop to what i am getting

What mining client were you using before you rebooted?
