I suspect that uray is not working on this any more.  No developments or website for a while now. 

Too bad, it is my favorite is for mining.  I have one rig running it that is very stable and I rarely have to touch it.  I am looking to move over to PimpOS, though it isn't as good or as easy. IMO.

How to compile a new version of the sgminer. I need x11 quark. GRS these algorithms. Thank you very much for your work!

you need the module that you can grab from slax site or that you can directly activate in the console:

slax activate coreutils
 or perhaps that is:
slax activate modtools
 I dont know I didn't try, but I did try this
slax activate git

then you navigate under the directory /opt/miners There are all the miners you want to modify or to add new ones.

to add the optimized X11mod :

git clone
cd sph-sgminer_x11mod

then modify mining.conf with your user data

and you are good to go with ./ under that directory

If you want to preciously keep the install you made as a module, once you are done playing with it, just try:

dir2sb /opt/miners/sph-sgminer_x11mod /mnt/live/memory/bundles/

That should save your install under modules directory. Not sure how this works however, because those changes are already saved.  The module conversion is useful only to be reused in another live Cryptslax USB distro without having to go through all the above. Or if you want to erase the changes directory because you've messed things up and need to reset them in the original state.  

Repeat the same process for any other mining software you wish to install.

If you have questions, dont ask me, I have no idea! I just found this stuff by tinkering around with cryptoslax.. Grin

By the way this small FAQ comes from the author's Gogle + page.  

It was hard find this information, therefore I compiled it in one page and re-posted here for easer access:

#FAQ 001

my rig stuck on boot, its says "Looking for SLAX data in /slax"

mostly its caused by
* your usb flash drive are corrupted
* slax can't find your usb flash drive
* your usb controller aren't working or we dont have driver your your usb controller

* clean up and check your flash drive, make sure its FAT32 formatted, delete [FLASHDRIVE:]\slax\changes content to make it back to factory settings
* put your flash disk to USB 2.0 port, if SLAX can't use your USB 3.0 controller
* most AMD based motherboard need IOMMU to be enabled in your motherboard BIOS in order your usb controller to be recognize by SLAX
* you can try put iommu=soft at boot option list

Frankly, none of the above worked for me [lapja] when I tried to mix 270x with 265 or 285 but yes... you might want to try these first, just before you start screeming nasty words...

#FAQ  002

what is root password ? how do i change it?
its "toor" by default, you can change it by issuing command "passwd root"

#FAQ  003

how do i activate module (.sb file)

* you can activate modules on by issuing "slax active [module name]" while it running
* you can activate custom cryptoslax module (on official website) by downloading it first (you can use "wget [url to module]") then issuing "slax activate /path/to/downloaded/module"
* or you can simply put that .sb file into your flash drive at [FLASHDRIVE :]\slax\modules then boot it

#FAQ 004

how do i access and edit my files on CryptoSLAX system?

* you can use SMB service, on windows using your windows explorer type \\[YOUR RIG IP] , on OSX using your Finder, go to Connect menu and put "smb://[Your RIG IP]
* you can use SSH service, for example you can use WinSCP and connect with your Rig IP, on OSX you can use CyberDuck software

#FAQ  005

how do i auto-start miner on boot?

* SLAX will execute all executable files on /etc/rc.d/rc.xxxx on boot (runlevel 3) which is before X started, so any program that need to access GPU wont detect gpu at this time, therefore u need to autostart after X started (see below)
* CryptoSLAX also will execute all executable files on /root/.kde/Autostart/start.h and run it in background (no visible terminal)
* CryptoSLAX will execute all executable files on /root/.kde/Autostart/start.d and run it on KDE terminal inside screen session
* for miner program, i create it more easy by creating symbolic link to miner script inside /root/.kde/Autostart/start.d , so if you want to autostart miner, simply make executable by issuing "chmod +x /path/to/" and to disable it to being autostarted simply make it non-executable by issuing "chmod -x /path/to/"

Seems this project is quite out of dev.
