AMD SDK License

You need to accept the AMD SDK license before you start mining. Just click AMD License located in system on the menu.


Persistence. The easy way


Format your whole flash media in fat32 and install linuxcoin via unetbootin or whatever you prefer.

Download one of the following persistence file there's 512MB / 1GB / 2GB files

http://linuxcoin.co.uk/downloads/persistence

512.zip = 1/2GB

pop it onto the root of your memory card and reboot. (The root of the stick is where all the ubn* files are Cheesy )

PXE scripts
LinuxCoin 0.2.1b now contain everything that is needed to act as a PXE server and distribute itself over a network to as many computers you desire. The scripts make it super simple to get everything up and running in a matter of minuets. Make sure you cram as much ram as you can afford into your nodes for stability.

REMEMBER TO SET YOUR CONFIG FILE /opt/PXE/globals.sh

Code:
./pxe_menu.sh

BitLotto's BOTG script

BOTG - Bitcoin Off-The-Grid
A tiny little script that uses openssl to create a private key along with a matching Bitcoin address. When run off of a Live CD environment, a very safe location for storing BTC can be created. Running on a Live CD with no Internet ensures no virus or malware can get the private key. The script will create a private key and present it in two formats: Hex and Base58. Either format can be used to access the matching Bitcoin address and helps provide redundancy in case one is copied down wrong. After copying down the keys and the matching Bitcoin address the user is advised to reboot the computer. Keeping the key "off-the-grid" or off any computer means no viruses or computer security lapses will jeopardize your BTC. No backups or encryption is needed. Any money you send to the matching Bitcoin address will be safe. The only way to steal the BTC would be to steal the key directly off of where it is written down. Therefore, it's best to keep the paper somewhere safe where it can't get destroyed or stolen.

Other uses could be:
-pre-loaded cards/tickets that are redeemable
-sending BTC when you are not sure who is going to receive it such as geo cache locations
-scratch cards or draws that are done at parties where everyone gets tickets with unknown amounts
-give BTC to someone and you don't know their Bitcoin address

To spend the BTC the private key has to be manually imported into a wallet. Once imported regular security precautions are needed. There are just a few utilities for importing keys but they are becoming more common. Online wallets may soon add the feature to "redeem" private keys.

To run:
Code:
cd /opt/BOTG
./botg.sh

Because I thought it was questionable that SDK 2.1 is faster ? Do you have some more info ?

Isn't there a problem with 6990 Cards? Or are they supported by 2.1 too?

I don't know, but I'm running my 6990 cards on 2.4.  I think 2.3 works too.

Wow, really looking forward to this. If I ever get a dedicated mining rig I should definitely try this, instead of going with the easy Windows way

I'm trying the OS now.  Is there a way to keep files around after reboot?  Every time I restart I lose all the changes I had made.

I just tried out to. I liked it very much and everything worked smoothly in my opinion I'm still convinced that this a very interesting project.
The only thing that bothers me is that I couldn’t get my wifi to work at all on my hp compaq6510b when using LinuxCoin. But if I remember correctly I have had this problem with other live distributions as well so LinuxCoin is not to blame.

Anyway. Great work!
