I tried to boot off of this yesterday and it was just an orgy of errors.

Please make a regular install version.  Not everyone wants to run off a live CD / flash drive.  I prefer to run off a spare laptop HD (2.5W).

Like my post?  Consider giving me a tip! =)

yes a hard disk install would be good... this seems very unstable, 1 GPU seems to stop working after a while on each rig, still visible with aticonfig, but when trying to start it up again ends in a kernel panic, freeze up and need for a reboot.... annoying!! maybe its just my motherboards :/


edit: maybe running the processes with "screen" or in the background with "&" was giving the kernel panics?  ive opened a terminal window for each process and minimised them all, now seems to be stable for the last hour Cheesy

edit2: no difference.... maybe ill try phoenix miner instead

edit3: phoenix with poclbm kernel is slower than poclmb on my 6990s ....  now i have uptime of 12 hours+ on one rig, i just used the ROOT terminal for each instance of poclbm and minimised each window... lets see how long this lasts.

Is there an easy way to increase the maximum clock rate limit in Overdrive?  I can only seem to increase the clocks by 50 mhz (ATI 5870).  Is RBE the only option?

Try pheonix or diablo miner

Thx for your suggestion. I just attempted phoenix on one card. I get a similar result. It seems to alternate between 80 & 120MH/s instead of 275MH/s

I tried "start_mining" with poclbm.... but I get -


Exception in thread Thread-2:

I saw someone else have this same issue..... but there didn't appears to be a resolution.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Further notes on persistence and automatic startup.

I found it much easier to boot the CD, plug the drive in, and partition it there.  You can also set up the ext4 filesystem at this step.  Set the type of partition 1 to "C".  Then move it back to the windows box to format.

If you are using unetbootin, save yourself a lot of hassle by opening syslinux.cfg with WordPad and adding "persistent" to the end of the first append line (under label unetbootindefault).

The autostart is in /home/user/.config/autostart/auto.desktop

Code: (auto.desktop)
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=coin
Exec=lxterminal --command "/home/user/shell_script.sh"
Terminal=true

Keep in mind that this won't run as root, so you'll have to diddle the permissions and/or use setuid on the shell script that it runs.

A couple of my miners are 50 miles away from my home, so I just finished setting all of this up, along with a watchdog to reboot the boxes as needed.  I figured since I had to figure a bunch of this out the hard way, I'd write this post while it was still fresh in my mind.  Hope it helps someone.

Kill screensaver (takes resources when it's on): killall xscreensaver
Please disable screensaver by default in next version.


PLEASE REMARK THIS , I just killed the screensaver and the performance INCREASED A LOT , before this the SSH control was very slow and GPU outputs very unstable... I killed the screensaver and instantly this two aspects improved.

thanks Valentine

Thanks for all the feedback guys !! Please bear in mind this OS is only for testing. This is not the final product so expect bugs lol and probably quite a few Wink I'm away for a few days now when I get back I will make a start on the final version.

I'll keep you posted on the progress as usual Wink Hope most are enjoying LinuxCoin !!

X86/i686 support would be nice at some point, can't boot this on my VIA C7 board Sad

I also  second all the suggestions to disable screensaver.


Oh and thanks for all your hard work and dedication, much appreciated mate  Grin

You deserve a short break! Wink Thanks for all the hard work on this, has been working great for me so far! Only problem I've had keeping LinuxCoin running has been the power outage two nights ago. Any way you can fix that too? Tongue

Thanks again for your hard work on this! LinuxCoin has helped me out so much running my 5750 without any sort of manual configuration. Thank you!

Thank you for linuxcoin! I have donated.  I will continue to donate as the service improves.

Any way we can get some default command lines for overclocking a 5870 on both device 0 and device 1 with phoenix and the special 5870 kernel in forum?  I'd read the doc but I figure someone's already done this.

Thanks for the help all!

Just wanted to thank you for your hard work on this and let you know about a bug I have been fighting.

The file manager (pcmanfm) segfaults when I launch it.  I think it is related to this http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=605760 as it matches my error exactly. 

So if you would keep you eye on it and include the fix (amd64 based systems seem to be the issue) I would appreciate it.


Thanks again.

Having issues with my monitor can't seem to find a resolution that will work, not even the failsafe resolution/refresh rate is "in range". I'm using an old lcd tv which was 1280x768 I figured 800x600 would boot but I can't seem to get it to. It seems to go out of range when X loads. Sadly I'm not linux savvy and have exhausted my resources trying to figure this one out.

Info it's a Philips 30PF9946D yeah it's pretty old!

Just donated coinage - keep up the good work.

Have it running on two machines, using USB with persistance.

Two 5830's running nicely together.

I 3rd the comment - make the screensaver disabled by default.

cheers!
