I want to run GUIminer on a remote computer and have the display show up on my local system.

I have two systems: monitor and miner, both running Ubuntu and latest AMD SDK

I ssh to miner and run:

Code:
DISPLAY=:0 python guiminer.py

GUIminer puts the display on miner.

I ssh to miner and run:

Code:
DISPLAY=monitor:0 python guiminer.py

GUIminer shows up on monitor, but the opencl list only shows the processor, not the video cards.

Is there any way to separate them? I'm not adverse to hacking on guiminer, but I don't know where to begin.

Sorry, wrong forum. Diablo move it to the correct one please....

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

Due to how the AMD libraries work (but not the nvidia CUDA ones), no, this isn't possible.  Not exactly, anyhow.  There's various monitoring tools that let you have a GUI around what your headless machine is doing.  There's also things like enabling VNC on your target and using that.

Find the above useful?  Send tips to 1KjoJihf7GWHWeQFhDmaw4g7xorkmD13u

Thanks, I'm currently using NX nomachine.com, but it isn't a lightweight solution.
