You surely mean CTRL-ALT-F1 (not 1) for the first terminal screen. Correct?

before i read the shortcut for terminal, i did this:

clicked the "power" icon and chose logoff quickly.

then i let the machine "sit" at the login screen wondering what to do.

it logged on for me
=]

i went to a terminal and applied the fixes.

i "seem" to ok.

i've edited .conf and pools but clicking on the webbrowser doesn't show any "usage" anywhere.

at least i can poke around now.

=]

thanks!

yeah i think so... i do it by instinct, hard to remember what I'm actually doing heh.
the goal is of course to get away from X before the miners try to start.  As long as the primary GPU is in a text mode, opencl seems to fail, so they won't try to mine.

ok, so amdoverdrivectrl show plenty of gpu usage, but i'm confused as to how i "snoop" on phoenix's progress.

do i ssh in under root and screen -r ?

doesn't seem to be a screen with phoenix running.

or ssh in under user?

sorry, i'm so ig-nernt.

i'm trying to keep too many diff configs straight.

ubuntu 11.04 on 1 rig
linuxcoin on 1 rig
bamt on current rig + 2 or 3 waiting on my stupidity to end...

if you have applied fixes, easiest way is to simple run gpumon.  then hit the number on the keyboard corresponding to the GPU you want to watch.  that's it.  be root.  always root.

I'm getting failed for api status on nofee.  Tried re-installing fix, rebooted, and verified api key.  Any suggestions?

as root..

type this

Code:
nano /opt/bamt/testapi

paste in this:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl

require '/opt/bamt/common.pl';

die("must specify which pool") unless defined($ARGV[0]);

my $conf = &getConfig;
%conf = %{$conf};

die("no apikey_$ARGV[0] defined in bamt.conf") unless defined(${$conf}{settings}{"apikey_$ARGV[0]"});                             

print "\ntrying $ARGV[0] with apikey: " . ${$conf}{settings}{"apikey_$ARGV[0]"} . "\n";

my ($a,$b,$c,$d) = &{"getPoolStats_" .$ARGV[0]}(${$conf}{settings}{"apikey_$ARGV[0]"});

print "\nresults: $a\t$b\t$c\t$d\n\n";

press ctrl-x y enter

back at prompt, type this
Code:
chmod ugo+x /opt/bamt/testapi

now you can test your keys, etc...

to test nofee:
Code:
/opt/bamt/testapi nofee

what does it say?

Yes.  Thank you.

btw nofee uses "balance" instead of "confirmed". "confirmed" is actually the total amount earned since acct created.

EDIT: a bug note?....I just installed on another headless system with all fixes applied and got very erratic hash rates.  I ran apt-get remove xscreen saver which looks like it solved the issue.

The only thing is the problem happens before I even try to do any OCing.  It could easily be the USB drive as it's an old one... we'll see what happens after I go pick a new one up and try it in the morning.

At least for me, the orginal BAMT used to load the bamt.conf the first time I booted. Which is set at 100% fan and 980 core. On my 6950s it locked up a few times before I could edit and save the bamt.conf.

Regardless I'd try 1 card in the mobo. Then edit the conf and set it to 900 core. Then turn it completely off, then fire it up. I'm not sure what else could be going wrong (maybe memory?) because I have the exact same hardware. If the cards are installed then try all of them down to 900 core, shut it off completely, then boot it up. If that still craps out I'm out of ideas. =)

Hell if I know exactly what I did differently to fix it... but it's working now.

All I ended up doing was powering it up with only 1 GPU, removed xorg.conf, did a coldreboot then I could mine on that one card.  I plugged in the rest after that and it's working now!

Ah ha.. this explains much.  I found why this happens, my mistake of course. 

I think it's time for a fresh image, too many bugs in the v0.4 and that one in particular makes it hard to get the fixer.   This one will be 0.4b, not the upcoming major new version.  Just 0.04v with the first 11 fixes installed, which should actually be quite a bit better for new users, but no reason to mess with it if you are already running 0.4 with fixes applied.

Any thoughts on cgminer?

I just started using it on my windows machine and it's getting a fair amount less stales than my BAMT box.  About 0.40% stales to 1.40% stales, it's only been about 7 hours running, so it could be luck... but I think it may also be the miner.

I've been testing cgminer.  It hasn't performed significantly differently than phoenix so far for me.  BAMT's phoenix is somewhat customized for our purposes, and it would be considerable work to extend cgminer to have these features as well.  If there does end up being a clear benefit, yes we will support it or switch to it as the primary miner, but so far I'm unconvinced.

Could use help seeding if anyone can spare some bandwidth.

I'm downloading it now, and will leave the upload open as much as I can... I'm a regular seeder on demonoid.

BTW... I love your login names on both sites. Cheesy

The Latest Version is unbelievable, I cannot thank you enough! This really is a true dedicated Mining OS without any mucking around.

Thank you so much for such a fantastic product, the .04B is what I loaded up today and it is simply the best I have tested and used out of everything!

Your a legend!!!!!!

an update on cgminer...  after some more time I do like it, and it has one killer feature which is the ability to generate local work when a pool disconnects, then submit it on reconnect.  I would like to eventually replace bamt's custom phoenix with cgminer.

However, it's also buggy as hell at this time.. at least the version in git atm.  I really cannot use it in production.  Our phoenix has proven quite reliable (well.. when wrapped with bamt magic Smiley ).  I'll keep watching and testing, and hopefully at some point cgminer will be reliable enough to use in bamt.  Seems the author is actively maintaining it so this might not take long.
