Thank you for your information, do you mean that I can just download the new version and paste it to EWBF directory? Can you please let me know where does the EWBF file locate in nvOC? I tried to search but I can not find it.


Hi fullhero, I see that EWBF update to version 0.3.4b, do I need to reimage with the new nvOC version or I can update it directly in the OS? In addition I see that all MOBO now can use the same nvOC image v0015, right?

Thank you so much for your awesome work.
Yes just copy it and it works nicely (+0-2% faster). You might want to add --api 0.0.0.0:42000 to the miner string in oneBash, EWBF has a nice monitoring page now.

BTW the new EWBF has a locked in 2% fee; which makes the 2% gain kind of pointless: so the primary gain is the improved API.


For updating EWBF on rig; download and replace the miner application currently in the '/home/m1/zec' directory with the new one.

note new EWBF linux link:  https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B9EPp8NdigFibDl2MmdXaTFjWDQ

Any chance for this to work on dell server like theR710? Which have 4 pcie gen 2 slots.

Thinking of it for 4 x 1080ti

Not sure what chipset these are: regardless I am reasonable sure the nvOC image doesn't have all the system files needed to run properly. 

If you are knowledgeable with Linux you should be able to get nvOC to work with any chipset. 

By loading nvOC on the mobo (might need to boot in recovery mode at first) you should be able to update in order to properly support the chipset.

Im using an MSI z170 A Gaming pro board. I updated the bios and set the 4g encoding to enable

When i try to boot the nvOC all i get is usb errors.

[  11.819307]  usb 2-6: device not accepting address 2, error -62

there are several lines listing all the usb ports.

at the very bottom of the error message after it lists all my usb ports is (initramfs)

What kind of risers are you using, and how are you powering them?

Actually I used nvOC to determine whether I could mine better using linux instead of windows 10. Under windows 10 I had problems to make it recognise all my gpu's, but using your nvOC image it actually worked.
Right now I use my own ubuntu installation, but nvOC was very useful for testing. so thanks for sharing this. Might use it again later. Cool

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?

It looks like your running at stock.

If you are only using one GPU: there is a bug in v0015.

To OC with one GPU follow the directions in this post:

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

You can verify if you are OCing properly by looking for messages like these at the top of the mining process:



Weird now after the fourth command I don't see any of those attribute setting confirmations in your screenshot, instead there are a few empty lines then:

/home/m1/9.0/ethdcrminer64: /usr/local/cuda/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1: no version information available (required by /home/m1/9.0/ethdcrminer64)

The miner still runs with the same speeds afterwards but something is amiss…

If you press f12 and enter:

gksu gedit '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

then enter the password when prompted

Is the file empty?


I did a reimage because I had the display connected to the mobo output. After connecting to the 1070 output and booting the fresh image the only xorg.conf file was xorg.conf.04252017 which is weird because I thought it would be today i.e. xorg.conf.06152017?

I copied it anyway and logged out and back in and now the startup sets GPUGraphicsClockOffset and GPUMemoryTransferRateOffset OK. But then I get the same error:
/home/m1/9.0/ethdcrminer64: /usr/local/cuda/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1: no version information available (required by /home/m1/9.0/ethdcrminer64)

Is that expected?

I am seeing better performance though, now:
PL 105
CC 250
MC 850
-dcri 50

is producing:
ETH 26.1MH/s
LBC 36MH/s

So not quite up there with Windows but better. Thanks for the assistance. I'll revisit nvOC once I have all the cards setup in the rig as that's obviously what the OS is designed for.


Linux OC is on a different curve than windows; you both can and need to OC more with linux to get the same results as windows.

I recommend bumping up the MC by 100 or 50 every 5 mins until Claymore soft crashes then bringing it back to the last stable setting.

The motherboard will turn on but still not getting a signal on monitor from it.
CPU is intel Core i3-700
And PSU is 850w

And you're sure your USB stick is burned correctly? USB booting is enabled?

It's burned correctly but idk how i would be able to enable USB booting if I can't do anything with the mobo since its not connecting to my display

It being a newer motherboard it wouldnt need to be set to USB boot
With it not even posting. I would have to say bad CPU or memory

Well that's just great. Just don't get why everything turns on and looks like its working and the display just wont connect.

Do you have another board or CPU or memory to test?

Not currently. Back to the store i guess

Whenever there are weird problems with displaying; it is usually a problem with the bios not posting correctly due to a conflict in the system.

To best mitigate this:

Ensure the monitor is connected to the primary GPU ( the one in the 16x slot closest to the CPU )

Disconnect the USB or SSD/HHD from the rig.  

Fully power off everything: including the PSU.

Press the power button several times to clear any remaining power in the mobo.

Turn the PSU powerswitch back to | "on".

power on (without the USB attached)

See if the bios posts; if you get nothing in 20 seconds; press ctrl + alt + del repeatedly until the system reboots.  

Wait and see if the bios posts.

If the bios posts attach the USB key and press ctrl + alt + delete.

Let me know if this works.
One last resort, no cards, connect to the MB VGA, reset the BIOS with the jumper on the MB. After that power on to see if you get any BIOS messages.

Could someone tip me off to a WiFi dongle or WiFi setup that's working well for them with nvOC?  I wasn't able to use NDISWrapper to install the windows driver for my old Netgear dongle (not sure if that was my inexperience or a technical issue).  Or perhaps, would wireless adapters work better?  Thanks.

Ubuntu 16.04 has good support for wireless adapters: I would try connecting it and seeing if it is recognized.

If it is not; I would go to the top left and select the ubuntu launcher and type u:

click on Software Updater and run updates.

Hi fullzero,

I only have 2 1070 cards plugged in at the moment so no risers. Cards are in the correct slots according to mother board manual.

I had to reboot one of my rigs and upon startup the console opens and tries to start but get the permission denied error over and over.  tried multiple usb ports and same thing, going to have to re flash the usb stick

What mining client were you using before you rebooted?

mining zec on same nvOS image... I re imaged the flash drive and its up and running now after copying the old onebash over

the only thing I can think of, is I did a hard reset of the rig when I "rebooted" it since I had to relocate it and adjust some cabling before bringing it back up, could that have screwed up the xorg.conf file?

USB keys are significantly more fragile than SSDs when it comes to forced shutdowns. 

Most of the time; if they aren't writing at the time of the shutdown they are ok: but if they are, it can result in drive errors.

@Fullzero.

How do you start oneBash script. I see it automatically starts when you open a terminal.

Is there a specific reason it works like this? How plausible would it be for me to change it so that the bash file is called on startup through a cron or rc.local call? That way it can easily be converted to run in a screen and is not dependent on having a terminal window open. I can't get it working via SSH as your post describes here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg19503300#msg19503300.

I know I linked it earlier, but something along these lines: http://www.cryptobadger.com/2017/04/build-ethereum-mining-rig-linux/

Please do not make any changes on my account. If you can just point me in the right direction on your current startup method I can figure it out.


You need the oneBash to set overclocking etc. So that's good when run automatically. You can remove the miner part like i've done, and replace the miner command at the end with top. That will run indefinately too.
Your cron job contains the miner, only start your miner script after you found that top is running (if pgrep top), that way you know all the OC commands are processed.

Maxximus007 suggestion is good if you are looking to customize.

If you want to not have oneBash launch at all:

open the file explorer

you should see a file named: 2unix

open it with gedit

move the cursor to the front of:

the last line which starts with: 

bash

add a #

so that it reads:

#bash '/media/m1/1263-A96E/oneBash'

and save

The transfer rate was the same as the one u recommended, i wanted to try your image now not wait on amazon.

I am downloading the image again and i will re-image the USB when i get home. I do not know if something got corrupt or not.

I got this to work but I am mining for op with the stick

fine with sending some hash to him.

I need help to set my settings in.

I use ewbf_ 3.4b to mine at nice hash

Whatcha need help with Phil?

okay I figured out settings and I am at nicehash.

https://www.nicehash.com/index.jsp?p=miners&addr=1JdC6Xg3ajT3rge3FgPNSYYFpmf53Vbtje

noVCphiltest1

have 2 questions now

 1 ) how to I upgrade to ewbf_ 3.4b

 2) looking to set  power lower  I have -pl at 100  so -pl 90 should drop power?


All you have to do is install ewbf to the same location as the one he has now and it'll pick it up and run it
Yes it will drop the power of all cards if you set it for all
What I would do is download it. Extract it to the desktop then copy and paste it into the same folder and name it the same then onebash will run it all the same also make a copy of the original file to be safe

I found the zec folder so I think  I can upgrade from 3.3 to 3.4

 I do not seem to be setting the power limits correctly -pl  100 ,90, 80, 70, 65  and I pull 150 watts per card

Are you going close to the bottom of the bash file to set the power limit?
You don't have to do it in the command line for the zec miner it'll be its own section for power limit settings

Phil,

if you haven't updated EWBF yet see:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg19579963#msg19579963

with powerlimits:

if using the same powerlimit for each card set:

Code:
POWERLIMIT="YES"
         

and in this block of code:

Code:
if [ $POWERLIMIT == "YES" ]
then
sleep 6
#change powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6
fi

find the line:
Code:
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -pl 125

and replace 125 with the desired powerlimit in watts


if using the individual powerlimits for each card set:

Code:
INDIVIDUAL_POWERLIMIT="YES"
      

and in this block of code:

Code:
if [ $INDIVIDUAL_POWERLIMIT == "YES" ]
then
sleep 6
#change GPU 0 powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 0 -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6

#change GPU 1 powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 1 -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6

#change GPU 2 powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 2 -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6

#change GPU 3 powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 3 -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6

#change GPU 4 powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 4 -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6

#change GPU 5 powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 5 -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6

#change GPU 6 powerlimit by changing the number after -pl to the desired wattage
expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 6 -pl 125
expect "*password*:"
send "miner1\r" '
sleep 6

........

change each line:

expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 0 -pl 125  ( this is for GPU 0 )

expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 1 -pl 125  ( this is for GPU 1 )

expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 2 -pl 125

expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 3 -pl 125

expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 4 -pl 125

expect -c 'spawn sudo nvidia-smi -i 5 -pl 125  ( this is for GPU 5 )

to the desired powerlimit.

Note: the indexing of the GPUs might be different than you expect.

If you open the guake terminal; press f12

and enter:
Code:
nvidia-smi

It should list your cards in the correct order.

When i try to boot the nvOC all i get is usb errors.

[  11.819307]  usb 2-6: device not accepting address 2, error -62

Hi fullzero,

I only have 2 1070 cards plugged in at the moment so no risers. Cards are in the correct slots according to mother board manual.

What kind of USB key are you using?

Have you tried reimaging the USB?

The usb is a sandisk 32 gb 130mb sec  http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sandisk-ultra-32gb-micro-usb-usb-3-0-flash-drive-black/3530864.p?skuId=3530864
The transfer rate was the same as the one u recommended, i wanted to try your image now not wait on amazon.

I am downloading the image again and i will re-image the USB when i get home. I do not know if something got corrupt or not.



First: did you unzip the image before using it to image the USB?



If you did:

No need to re-download to check the image:

open a cmd prompt:

click the start button and type:  

Code:
cmd

then press enter:

type the following:

Code:
CertUtil -hashfile PATH_TO_IMAGE_ZIP_HERE SHA256

and press enter

if the result is:

Code:
7193de203cdbc31f213fc7d9aa01ae41b0115be85021e46e48387e0d65c4bb40

then the ZIP_containing_the_image is good


Note: you can find the file path by right clicking the zip and selecting properties

The DAG is built on the GPUs with Claymore. 

I would reboot if you have a message from Claymore about a corrupted DAG file. ( I am not familiar with such an error message ).

Yes i used winrar and unzipped it to the desktop.

Then used HDDraw to burn to USB. After it was done i opened the image drag and dropped onebash file to look at it.
selected eject and removed it.

then made changes to the BIOs for 4g encoding,  plugged into rig and hit power on.

I would reboot if you have a message from Claymore about a corrupted DAG file. ( I am not familiar with such an error message ).

Apparently the DAG file is stored here: ~/.ethash, but I cant seem to 'cd' there to delete it. The message was from dwarfpool, not Claymore.

Dwarfpool not getting a calculated speed even though claymore is mining: https://dwarfpool.com/eth/address?wallet=0x2724fec58dcB620E09bDAbA78E951B38A4C57066
