If anyone is interested, I've been working on a headless mining variant of this that uses p2pool.  It is still in early testing, but it offers some nifty features.

Correct.  The original author said he would share the source if someone wanted to continue the project, but he hasn't followed up on that.

I would pay part of a bounty for a new and improved linuxcoin, not restricted to p2pool or whatever as I don't want to deal with networking crap. I hate dealing with that shet. I know it's easy to everyone here, but DNS, MAC and that shit drives me mad.

I just want a plug and play linux OS that is like linuxcoin without any bitcoin software that is as stable as possible.

For some reason I have 6 rigs running linuxcoin final, but can't get a single new one running no matter what I do. I have three rigs running on windows now because of this and their power draw sucks.

I know BAMT is the answer, but I can't even get that to boot past the original screen and I don't need to remote in nor do I want to. I want a GUI I can work with because my machines live at my house, no need for remote access.

How much will you pay?  If I can make a decent rate per hour's work, I'll do it.

Well you already made BAMT and i get it. I've stopped with any harsh words. I am not an a-hole who thinks all of you guys who work hard developing free open souirce stuff deserve any shit from noobs like me.

I just can't f'in understand how something worked so well for me for months and now i can't get anything but windows to work.

I've used 4 different motherboards, switched out over ten different video cards, 5870's, 5970's, 6990's 6970's

2 different MSI 890FXA-GD70's and two asus p8p67 WS boards. I've switched out PSU's seasonic x1250's silverstone 1500 watt and seasonic 750 watt gold.

I just can't figure out why I have two machines running linuxcoin final without issue for months.
both on msi-890fxa-gd70's, one with 2 5970's and a 5870 in the middle and one with a 5870 on an extender in slot 1, 5870 in slot 3, 5970 with extender in slot 4 and 5870 in slot 5.

these run great, occasionally gpu's get too hot, I reset and bam everything is fine.

The only thing I can figure is that these are crucial 16GB flash drives. I started using transcend 16gb usb 3.0's got a few to work and now, not anymore, maybe it's the drives.

I have 4 rigs at another location all the same:

MSI 890FXA-GD70
amd sempron 145
2gb ram
16gb crucial flash drive
linuxcoin final
seasonic 750 watt gold
2 x 5970's with replaced thermal paste and pads.
using cgminer 2.0.7 800/300 fan at 85

These again occasionally have dead gpus, but a restart and they're good to go.

So WTF? Are crucial 16gb drives the only ones that work with linuxcoin final?

i use unetbootin 555 load the iso and then copy and paste the 2048 persistence file.

My linuxcoin drives now load to the unetbootin, I scroll down to persistent and then the graphic loads with the penguin or whatever and then black screen with Underscore in upper left hand corner.

So, yeah if you lived near me, I would pay you $100 an hour to come out, get all my rigs running perfectly with the optimum drivers for my cards and a stable mining OS with best power efficiency, that doesn't break down and only needs to be reset occasionally. Oh and using the newest cgminer.

MSI 890FXA-GD70 can have issues booting from USB unless you are flashed to latest version.

It is in the BAMT hardware compatibility list.

Sorry I am not totally familiar with LinuxCoin, but its based on Debian so it really should work with nearly anything.  It also uses the iso-hybrid image type which works with almost every bios for booting (bamt does not).  So, if anything works, it would be linuxcoin, i think.

What I guess I meant was that if there is enough "bounty" that I can make a decent bit on generating a new LinuxCoin build, or on just reverse engineering the current one so the build process is open, I will gladly do it.  

I'm taking a road trip next month, florida to chicago to seattle and back.  So... maybe I will be near your town hah.  The travelling Bitcoin fixer roadshow.

Flashed to latest version of what? BAMT or linuxcoin?

Motherboard BIOS.  Later versions of the motherboard BIOS contain fixes which improve USB compatibility including booting from USB drive.

Anybody know if linuxcoin has a search function? Can't seem to locate it.

While I am thinking about it, How do I change this desktop? Shit get pretty bright after you have been up for 3-4 days.

thanX

Also has anyone experienced getting a "Segmentation fault" when starting either phoenix or poclbm?

OMG thats such a relief from that desktop.  Still having trouble with getting the miner started.

At first I was getting the "X server needs to be running" message and could not set clocks in aticonfig So I finally uninstalled and purged the xgldr drivers or some letters close to that, and then ran the AMD 12.1 w/ SDK 2.6.

So now I am able to get into aticonfig and play with those settings but whenever I attempt to run to run phoenix or poclbm I get this "Segmentation fault" line and then the attempt to start just quits.

Any tips from prior experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Try cgminer. It automatically sets the best defaults.

BTW I flashed the board bios to latest version and still no dice. i did end up having a bad 5970 though, so maybe that was the issue all along.

Anyway, windows for me, rigs are more stable and I am WAY more familiar. plus I have plenty of licenses, so no cost there.

Yeah. Pretty strange all of these people having tons of licenses for free ...

Yochdog also had it "for free".

Maybe you guys work for Micro$oft and that is why you are pushing Windblows and have so many "free" licenses.

Linuxcoin still is nice but needs to be updated and supported like BAMT.

It's called VOLUME LICENSING when you own a business. I own THREE different companies, so yeah in the scheme if things, they are "free" for me since I am the owner. I have twenty different machines for my employees between desktops and laptops, so to use 4-5 licenses for my rigs is no big deal, besides I got the tax deduction and it's a sunk cost.

Yeah windows sucks, I get it, except I re-used 4 old laptop drives I had lying around from fixing people's machines or upgrading them and loaded windows and my rigs have been 100% for stable for a week at 7.5 Gh/s.

It's all about each person's individual resources and skill set. You make the best of what you have and 5970's lying around doing nothing while I try to learn to be a linux user was not getting it done.

You're all smarter, better and more efficient than me, I get it. Move on.

I'm a hardware guy, I can build you an over-clocked water-cooled gaming beast or an htpc that will blow you away. I HATE software, it bores me and I like plug and play. I'd much rather troubleshoot hardware or work on tweaking its performance any day of the week.

I prefer bench marking to coding any day of the week.

If this project is still active here are a few suggestions:

Website:
1. Make your homepage look more appealing.
2. Visibly separate the latest & previous versions in the downloads section.

OS:
1. Add CPUMiner for the ability to mine litecoins.
2. Add other miners and clients.


Nice & simple OS. +1
