Hey guys !! Big progress with the PXE mining scripts !! LinuxCoin has been patched up to accept nfscow persistence !! Which means i can use a hook in dhcpd to run a script before the IP has been issued and setup persistence for each machine
I'm going to call this feature PnP cluster mining
This means that if you have bought a new mining node all you have to do is plug it in and turn it on and it linuxcoin will boot it, setup persistence, add the node to munin etc, setup some swap space for suspend / resume (Probably use this for suspending & resuming if the cards get to hot etc ?) start mining. More on this to come
Noob here - when running linuxcoin, how do I install a software like TrueCrypt?
Using apt-get ... ie;
apt-get update;apt-get install truecrypt
Or use the synaptic package manager included in the system menu.
well when stuf like the conection problem with the bitminer on all of the the pools I tryed is fixed I might look at it again,
Where is the install to hard drive? I rather not run from usb sticks if I have tons and tons of hard drives I can use as I have only two usb sticks
Why are there features like mp3 players and stuff included? if its a miner it needs to be close to bear bones, My xp install may be big but for windows xp its quite about a gig or two
Im sorry but I think the fancey tesktops and stuff can be taken out to safe space and bandwith
the over clocking porgram fails to work.
The miner once again fails to work to mine and ive tested with all three of my miners, and they are all range of ages. (4 year old 5 year old 4week old)
all have ati cards I said yes to the amd licence crap,
see windows works easer for this, if I want my wallet safe then I put it in a tc file. tis not that hard
now if there is a v0.3 or even .4 then I will try it again but it needs the bugs worked out,
and whats the root password?
Dr.Green: can we get a rundown on what linuxcoin-patches-xxXX11 are suggested to apply to the -final build
Sure there's only two
I'll edit this post when i reboot back into my slackware box.
I love it how im not even trying to troll and you guys think that,
got to love that.
OKay first problem
guiminer in linux will not give me a read out on how many mhash my system is working,
just says coneting but I know it is because it gets shares. whats wrong?
This is a bug with GUIminer and not linuxcoin. Just create a new phoenix miner and everything will work.
Thanks Math Man. I'm basically just trying to encrypt my wallet.dat, so I can email it to myself and make backups.
I'm also having difficulty because this is installed on a 4gb usb drive, and it seems to be partitioned so that the amount of space available for the block chain is too small. Only like 50mb are left now =/ I'm assuming I can't reallocate size without reformatting?
My god how big is your blockchain ? Are you sure you've got the right persistent size ?
I have a similar situation, where I have to run the first GPU on my first 5970 at a lower aggression. Otherwise the other 5 GPUs suffer. It's not anything to do with the CPU, as the CPU has 2-3% utilization. Maybe it's the drivers or SDK.
Does WORKSIZE=128 increase your hash rate at all? Also, try the first GPU aggression at 9 or 10. One of my rigs likes the first GPU at 9, while the other one likes it at 10.
This is normal behavior, you just need to find the happy medium for your system. It's all about tinkering with your settings until your system runs smoothly.
've tried phoenix and poclbm
right out of the box and stock the 3 cards are doing 260mhps with BFI_INT VECTORS WORKSIZE=256 AGGRESSION=12
If i set the first card to those flags it cranks the cpu to 100%. This ends up reducing the performance of the other workers.
So I set the aggression down to 8 on the first card but now I can only get 150MHPS!! What gives?
Currently I have to run the first card at 150mphs while the other 3 are running 260 completely stock.
I've tried all different flags, both kernels and the only way these cards do anything decent is with aggression=12
how can I run my primary card at aggression=12 without lagging the cpu?
I would love some advice on the issue, it may even be worth a tip, who knows.....
I will be sending a donation for the efforts put into linuxcoin, anyway. Truely a great build. Needs a little fine tuning/documentation but can get anyone who HAS A CLUE up and running in minutes.
Other than that this is my 2nd linuxcoin rig. first one is 4x 5830's. Worked flawlessy in minutes (maybe an hour)
whoever says getting linuxcoin to run is hard, obviously is not even familiar enough with windows, so probably should dodge linux altogether.....
that is coming from an avid windows users and a linux novice. what parts are you guys having so much trouble with. An easy windows tool to delete the partition and make a small first partition is EASEUS Partition Manager. It is completely free for home use. GPARTED is also another great program, just boot from the disc and make your two partitions.
Have you managed to update the catalyst to 11.7 ? Can you post the output of
dpkg -l fglrx*
You will have to send me some more information about your system and how you have things setup for me to diagnose ?
its a biostar p4m89-m7 with a c2d e6600
2x1gb sticks of ram
lam is realtek rtl8201CL
and a XFX reference 6950 2gb
running off a 4gb USB key
I am sorry but you will have to remind me of the full situation ?
Sorry guy's been working real hard on some new projects and had some real life to take care of. I will be back in the land of the living tomorrow and will answer all your questions then.
Any chance we are going to see the new release this week? With CCC 11.7?
1.0-alpha will include 11.7 because of the SDK update it's a requirement. I'm hoping for a 11.9 release that fixes this CPU bug. It shouldn't affect mining performance.
Do you know why I can't use aticonfig
with LinuxCoin coming from outside via SSH?
# DISPLAY=:0 aticonfig --lsa

Have you tried this.. EDIT:
made a quick correction. It appers the wiki is wrong
I will update as soon as possible.
ssh -X user@<yourip>
chmod uog+rw /dev/ati/card*
xauth merge /home/user/.Xauthority
aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all
