As a way of expressing my gratitude for lodcrappo's excellent software and contributing in a way that did not require me to spend what little Bitcoins I have, I set up an anonymous FTP mirror of BAMT on an unmetered server. It can be accessed at ftp://50.53.21.166:3141/bamt/bamt_v0.4b.zip. I will add 0.5 when it is released to the public, and I'd be glad to keep the older versions on there in case anyone needs them.

I posted this awhile ago. Just wondering if you want to put a link up on the download page, as I doubt people are going to search through a 60 page thread for a FTP mirror.  Wink

0.5 is due out any minute now, like literally later today.

I am calling this thread a loss, for the most part.  Will start a new one.  Maybe I'll document it better.  Maybe not.

I will update my mirror when it's released.

A new thread is probably a good idea, but do make sure to archive this one. It will save (hopefully) some duplicate questions if you link to the archive and tell readers to search it before asking questions.

I am usually all for telling people to piss off and RTFM, but this thread is a bit of a nightmare so I have been letting people slide lately.

I am hoping that with 0.5 we can cut a lot of the old stuff out and get a sort of fresh start. 

Transisto has been working on gathering the info from this thread, the wiki, the faq, the irc channel etc.  I'm sure he can use some help.

Compiling it into a database of some sort? I'd be glad to help, but I'll need some more information.

OK. So what is the decision about 32 bit or 64 bit ?

Thanks !

OK. So I see that both 32 and 64 bit is somehow supported.

How is this achieved ( I was not able to download the new image ) ?

Will 32 bit still be supported for say version 0.6 etc. ?

Thank you lodcrappo !

32 bit software runs on 64bit machines.  same way bamt 0.4 and every previous version supports both.

I do not know how long we will stay on 32 bit, or if there will be a "0.6", or when it would happen if so.
 There are drawbacks no matter what.

OK. So is this using a amd64 kernel or the old i686 kernel ? As I said earlier, cannot try it out until someone uploads to a file host or something.

Thanks !

so... I'm going to try and keep editing that first post over there -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=65915.0
with changes as fixes happen, to be more like those other guys, since it has been often commented that this thread sucks.
sorry, I am not a forum person.  and get off my lawn, etc.

what else can we do to take advantage of a clean slate over there, and avoid what happened here?

figure might as well use this thread for ideas to help that one.

IMHO if you kept that first post updated with the current status, version, fix# notes, etc, it would be cool. I know you can get to them from your site, but maybe a direct link to the IRC/Wiki/FAQ with the basic steps to get going. Then when noobs pop in and ask the same question answered two pages prior you can just link to page one, wiki, section, answer... Just a thought.

FYI for anyone wanting to install BAMT to a harddrive - I installed it to 4 boxes last night (four separate hard drives), this is  the script I used to do it ;;

Code:
cd /
cfdisk /dev/sda
create 2 partitions [linux, and linux-swap]
make first partition bootable
write/quit
mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1
mkdir /mnt/bamt
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/bamt

cp --preserve -R {bin,boot,etc,home,initrd.img,lib,opt,root,sbin,selinux,srv,usr,var,vmlinuz} /mnt/bamt

mkdir /mnt/bamt/{dev,media,mnt,proc,sys,tmp}

cd /mnt/bamt
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/bamt/dev
mount -t proc /proc /mnt/bamt/proc
mount -o bind /sys /mnt/bamt/sys
chroot /mnt/bamt

apt-get update
apt-get install grub
[choose sda]
update-grub
grub-install /dev/sda

edit miner configs;
vi /etc/bamt/pools
vi /etc/bamt/bamt.conf
reboot

thanks to the bamt developer(s) for such a great program!

edit: of note, I have been using 'mgpumon /etc/bamt/mgpumon.conf' to monitor all my boxes from one place -> 'http://<serverIP>/mgpumon/' but I found that the css file wasn't being loaded.
to fix this, I changed the configuration line in /etc/bamt/mgpumon.conf ::
Code:
FROM => "httpcss": "/mgpumon.css",
TO => "httpcss": "mgpumon.css"
then created a symlink for the mgpumon.css file ;;
Code:
ln -s /var/www/bamt/mgpumon.css /tmp/mgpumon/mgpumon.css

Hm? I just dd-it on a hdd from an usb pen. Done  Grin

dd straight to hard drive will work, but you'll end up with a rather strange system.  500MB or so will be read only, and that hunk will be overlaid by the contents of a second partition called the cow (copy on write).  no matter what you do, you'll never be able to delete or change anything in that 500mb hunk (it will seem like you can, but actually you're just making the cow overlay bits of it.)


anyway... its a very good system for use with a usb drive.  not very good for a hard drive.  

j0800's method will give you a more normal install without some of the weirdess in there for making USB keys happy.

however in reality both will be less than ideal without a lot of work undoing lot of weird stuff thats done to make this software perform well on a live usb key.  
if you want to use a hdd, use a hdd distro from the start.  long run will be better.
