I am fortunate enough to have a shop with space for me to setup my mining rigs.  So far I've just gone with the open "bench" setup to save on costs and to make cooling easy.

In the photo you can see the bench with three rigs (a mix of 5870, 5970 and one older 5840) on the floor is the Bitcoin solo server running in -server mode, which also has 2 5870's.  There are a couple of other machines in my office with 5870's elsewhere.  I am at 3.8G/hash and adding about 1/g/hash per week buying up cheap used cards via craigslist.

I am working on building a good Ubuntu Live ATI ISO file today in an attempt to eliminate all of the hard drives by using USB thumb drives, that'll save on electricity as well as hardware costs going forward.




What PSU do you have for each of your rigs? Just asking out of curiosity, as my rig (x3 5850's) has a 800Watt PSU.
Wondering if I got too much or not?

I'm actually doing the same right now.  How far along are you with it?  I'm stripping it down to use openbox wm and using 12.10 w/ 3.8.2 kernel.  Having it set up to load into ram so that I can pull the stick and boot another machine.  Also apache and psql with a web interface so you can log in over LAN and check status.  The web interface is whats taking most of the time though.  But at least it will be responsive so i can check it on my phone if i decide to open ports on my router.  PM me if you wanna compare notes.

Yep, I'm familiar with BAMT.  I believe BAMT 0.5 was released Feb '12 so I assumed development had halted.  Sounded a little dated for my taste.  I tend to roll my own distros when the task at hand can benefit from it.  I'll release it to the forums after it's been battle tested.  Also need to throw together a site and set up some mirrors before I put it out there, but thats the easy part.

You realize that post was almost 2  years ago? May '11? You might want to look for something a little more current, as a LOT has changed since then.

Ah, my bad.  Just used to people updating their original post when maintaining a project.  I'll check it out.  Too far along on my own project to abandon it.  Wouldn't hurt to have a BAMT alternative regardless.

Why does everyone want to use Linux with their mining gear? These days a Windows 7 machine can run just as efficient and stable as any Linux distro out there and you have all you need. What's the reason for using Linux at all besides being old school and really just liking Linux?

Linux is free? You can buy a bunch of motherboards on Newegg, and not have to buy a $150 license for a legal OS?

BAMT and LinuxCoin did also had certain advantages, they were provided with everything you need to just start mining (especially BAMT came with farm management software) while they could be installed on a simple USB stick.
Probably many miners were also Linux geeks to begin with Smiley
Also, you don't have to be old school to use Linux.

BAMT still works perfectly BTW, only cgminer needs to be updated.

Because it has always been trivial to script things with Unix: Linux geeks know how to configure their system to autostart everything at boot time. Windows users have to hack around.

Because you can't distribute a pre-configured Windows image for USB keys to others so that they can profit from your knowledge (both because creating a generic Windows LiveUSB is probably impossible and because Microsoft just doesn't want you to do that).

Because serious miners with multiple rigs and adding rigs regularly can simply copy an USB key content to another with minimal changes to get another fully configured system right away.

Because you don't have to pay for any license or make sure you don't infringe on anything.

Because you don't have to buy a PC if you don't use GPUs anymore: FPGA mining rigs can be run from smaller, less costly and less power hungry Linux-based home routers with 32MB.

Auto starting services/programs with Windows is horribly easy.

The only thing that I can see people going for Linux is because it is free. With today's OS you can pretty much do anything and everything you can as with Linux. Mostly everything today is cross platform. Don't get me wrong, I run several Linux boxes at home, even my Newznab server runs Linux and my web hosting VPS run CentOS and they are great for that. I was just curious as why mining people opted for Linux, that's all.

Maybe one day Microsoft will release a FREE OS to the world.

Every time another Avalon is delivered, you are losing more and more credibility. AFAIK you are the only one claiming that jgarzik, the Foundation, and all others who have received units are "part of the scam". I would be interested to enter in a personal bet with you that batch 1 will be shipped by some date.

Avalon is more than likely a scam. So jgarzik has one, I guess I should believe him even though there were many bets that were likely to be a good enough reason to lie and say you have a working asic. Bitcoin foundation had one, ok but do they still have one? It was my understanding the nzwhatever guy just brought it there to show it off. Also there is still the possibility that the machines turn on and produce heat but are really just a proxy for a gpu farm somewhere. How does one know when he won't release the source code?

So 1 month later, and plenty of Avalons delivered... I was right (again).

Finally I setup the unit, and add some mobility to it, so I can drag it instead of lift it up Wink
