I was recently referred to the linxcoin distribution as an easy method to get Linux mining up and running.

I have downloaded the 0.2a distro and flashed it to a USB stick with unetbootin and tried booting. The distro kernel hangs during loading with a black screen. The keyboard lights will not change state. Locked solid.

Tried burning the image to a DVD and booting that. Same problem.

The same machine runs Ubuntu, Win 7 x64, and anything else I through at it.


Here's the specs on the box...

Code:
 > Mainboard : MSI 890FXA-GD70 (MS-7640)
  > Chipset : RD890 single slot GFX Hydra
  > Processor : AMD Phenom II X6 1100T @ 3400 MHz
  > Physical Memory : 8192 MB
  > Video Card : AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series
  > Hard Disk : WDC (640 GB)
  > DVD-Rom Drive : AJSHQFU 27O5E7CTER8 SCSI CdRom Device
  > DVD-Rom Drive : TSSTcorp CD/DVDW SH-S182M ATA Device
  > Monitor Type : iH282 - 27 inches
  > Monitor Type : Unspecified
  > Monitor Type : Unspecified
  > Network Card :  RTL8168/8111 PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
  > Network Card :  RTL8168/8111 PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
  > Operating System : Windows 7 Ultimate Professional 6.01.7601 Service Pack 1 (x64)
  > DirectX : Version 11.00
  > Windows Performance Index : 5.9 on 7.9


Anyone have any idea why this wont boot?

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

I was able to get it to boot and run.

The problem was that I had enabled the IOMMU setting in my BIOS and that was causing the hang.

I had enabled this setting after installing ubuntu on the box. I realized that some of the BIOS settings were the cause of the issue when I tried to boot from an ubuntu install disk and that locked up too.

Glad you got it fixed. Maybe I'll use this, if I ever convince my dad to make a whole new system for mining lol
