Ready2Go
Ready2Go is a Raspbian (Debian) based distro wrapper for the RasberryPi

Warning, this is work in progress, it works but updates may mess-up your device, so visit this thread before updating to check the changelog.

Quote
Main idea behind Ready2Go is basically get 1 rock solid base img file out (soon) and then provide tools to keep updating with a simple command rather than downloading a new build every x days, this helps save time (in a few ways) and keeps you updated with the latest cgminer (and BFGMiner) later on.

Base OS needed : Raspbian

Current Feature list
  • Auto(Updater) - So you won't need to mess around compiling the latest cgminer by hand Wink
  • CGminer support (latest from Git)
Planned feature list
[ ] Graphs -- Todo
[ ] WebUI - Display status of each device plugged in --Todo


Devices supported
  • avalon
  • BFL SC
  • BitForce
  • Icarus/Lancelot
  • Modminer
  • Ztex
How do I use this ?
Download and burn img

'Select free download / free on the left hand side to download for free'
Quote

basic commands,
cgminer - launches CGminer
update - updates cgminer
status / stats - displays system stats

or

You'll need Raspbian installed firstly (latest preferred) and then execute the following statements one by one,

Please report any errors or any things you'd like to see here,

Few things to note,
1. I don't have a RPi for myself so I had to use a RPi emulator to test this from http://xecdesign.com/qemu-emulating-raspberry-pi-the-easy-way/
2. Please consider donating, I can do a whole lot more if I have a RPi to test this on, probably package it as an Ready2Go distro (load and mine) rather than executing the commands to make it Ready2Go.

nifty -- tested against both emulated and real raspbian/pi setups.. worked well. I like the idea of where you're heading. Would be great to throw in bfgminer 'secret sauce' as well, since some people prefer it.

btw, I was able to compile cgminer successfully with "dh-autoreconf" -- what function does it serve? (Just asking because it takes an additional 10M of disk space)

Hey,
Thanks for testing it out Smiley Glad to know the current github build worked Smiley BFGminer will be added in soon, hopefully once I can get my hands on a real RPi Tongue

The only reason I added dh-autoreconf was because I get the cgminer files from git (so it's the latest) and when installing it, you need to pass on a autogen.sh --flags (where flags are the devices you want it to support) and found that without autoreconf it wont install (maybe because I'm using a old build of Raspbian :/

Main idea behind Ready2Go is basically get 1 rock solid base img file out (soon) and then provide tools to keep updating with a simple command rather than downloading a new build every x days, this helps save time (in a few ways) and keeps you updated with the latest cgminer (and BFGMiner) later on.
