Hey thank you! Great! Smiley
I'll try it later this day.

One question: does it contain now smartcoin?


www.Bitcoin-Tools.de - Price Alert & Calculator [OUTDATED!]
A little tool to keep you informed or wake you up, if Mt.Gox reaches a defined price level and a calculator to convert  BTC or USD based on live Prices. It´s not working any more, because of Mt.Gox... but it was fun to code that time... keeping this link just for reminding... Thanks to everyone for donations done that time!

Full list of added stuff will come with the final version, there is a small one on the original post. I'll post it here ...

grsecurity / PaX hardened kernel
ck patch for the fastest CPU mining
secured bitcoin wallet option to encrypt and use your wallet.
GUIminer
Smartcoin munin plugins
Chromium replaced for iceweasel
tor / privoxy
lots more drivers / hardware support.
More miners including hashkill and cgminer.
Updated and optimized pyopencl
monit software watchdog
Updated PXE scripts (now they really do work lol)
Bug fixes etc
and lots more !!

Yes smartcoin is included and has been tested. Also you can now view the stats of smartcoin via the munin web interface. When you've booted you need to symlink the plugin and wait around 10 mins for munin to update.

Code:
ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/smartcoin /etc/munin/plugins/
/etc/init.d/munin-node restart

then you can view this information on the local machine by viewing

http://127.0.0.1/munin or from another device by viewing http://<your_ip>/munin

Excellent work sir! I'll be putting it through its paces as soon as I get home from work!

Request to everyone else: Please if you know how to use one of the new features (or any of them that are not in the WiKi add them!! Smiley

This will save drgr33n from having to spend time doing it, when we can, and its the least we can do for him, and it will also prevent a lot of questions.

Just in case Smiley 13AP8mCpruBQVtVWbQgYGSnBgGxe2g8ERe

Crypto Geek - New Promising ICO TrafficX is coming

Great project.

I'd like to propose either an extension to the project, a completely new distro or ideally both.

The reason I say a completely new distro for offline backup is to keep things simple and secure.

The mockup would be like this.

Code:
Welcome to The Bitcoin Offline Savings Account Generator
You generated address is "khghgkjhkjhkjlhkjlhWHATEVERklj87686gk"
1) Print wallet.dat to paper (printer is... `online`)
2) Copy wallet.dat to USB drive
3) Create digital wallet.dat file from scanner and save to USB drive
4) Create digital wallet.dat file from image on USB and save to USB drive

Things to include would be:

- saned (for recovering a wallet.dat backed up as a printed imaged)
- cups

I would suggest a minimal ncurses based menu at first, with options to backup to a file on USB but also to create a .png image and print it, checking that the printer works first.

You could base the distro from http://tiny.slitaz.org/ or http://mirror.slitaz.org/pizza/

To create it directly on the LinuxCoin drive,

boot from usb
sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/live-rw bs=1M count=600
mkfs.ext3 -F /mnt/live-rw

In this example the 600 represents a 600MB file and /dev/sda1 is the name of the usb key

Hope that helps

Trip

Deepbit has had such good luck lately, I kinda don't want to make the move from Windows to Linuxcoin just yet. When the luck goes down I'll give it a try.

Quick question: When I install the latest version of LinuxCoin on a USB stick and boot from it, will it affect my Windows install on the Hard disk? Does it do any writing to the hard disk or totally zero?
Don't want my Windows install to go to waste...

My GF thinks I'm useless, if you think otherwise and can proof it to her, please do so and donate:

lol LinuxCoin has been designed to be your personal wallet. You can take it anywhere and use it on most newish computers and spend bitcoins etc without a trace on the local machine. The whole point of this OS is to work without touching your HDD's or anything else on your computer. LinuxCoin will not write to your local HDD's unless you tell it to Cheesy

Using 0.2prefinal in persistent mode. I'm having some difficulty with the Secure Bitcoin Client. First time I set it up it seemed to work fine. It issued a passphrase and all seemed well for that session. However, in subsequent sessions when the secure bitcoin client is launched and the passphrase is entered it opens with an entirely different coin key shown. I tried to create a new key and the secure client locked up.

What is the correct procedure for establishing a persistent, secure bitcoin client?

Hey again guys Cheesy !! I've had no feedback what so ever lol I don't know if this is a good thing or bad lol ??

Something appears dramatically wrong. I downloaded it two seperate times to two seperate computers and both of the old iso files are 799mb, but both of the new ones are only 84mb.

I re-formatted a known newish working usb and installed the iso. It installed way too quickly (which is what made me take note of the file size). I then copied th old 2048 persistence fileto the usb. The only option in the boot menu was default. It did not boot and only gave an error message;
"Invalid or corrupt kernel image"

EDIT

Did a Quick format on the usb, re-copied the previous iso and menu is back, boots normally, I did not take the time to copu a live-rw file this time.

EDIT 2

I dl'ed from the link a few posts up. will re-try from front page in a bit when "life" gives me a chance. 8^)

EDIT 3

Something is definitely off. I just tried to download it from the link on the first page and it was only 300mb or so. I just deleted it and am trying again.

Hey again guys Cheesy !! I've had no feedback what so ever lol I don't know if this is a good thing or bad lol ??

I have some feed back and this may be directly related to me since I use smartcoin

-1) I noticed that the prefinal version of linuxcoin does not cleanly reboot ( could be an issue for remote administration
-2) may want to make the final default persistent boot option
-3) for some reason I have to run my aticonfig commands as root now where that wasn't needed on the .2b version ( causes issues with smartcoin)
-4) the packaged install of smartcoin does not work ( may be easier to just include a install script that will install the latest version if the end user would like to utilize it )
+5) it does boot faster
+6) I like the secure bitcoin client ( even though I dont use a local wallet )

This is just what I have noticed when playing with it in the last 30 min may have more later
