I've managed to get persistence to work and go to termial and used:

sudo passwd user

to create a new password, BUT when I shutdown and reboot I am not asked for a password?

How do I create a pasword that is required upon boot?


From the first post in this thread:


If you want to disable autologin edit /etc/inittab and

replace this

Code:
1:12345:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1

for this

Code:
1:12345:respawn:/bin/bash </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1

and reboot


user@linuxcoin:~$ edit /etc/inittab
Warning: unknown mime-type for "/etc/inittab" -- using "application/octet-stream"
Error: no write permission for file "/etc/inittab"


hi,

first become root via "su" and then type the password "live" in, you won't see anything, hit enter.
Now you type "nano /etc/inittab" and you can change it.

Hit ctrl-x, y, enter to save it.

regards, talpan

user@linuxcoin:~$ su
Password:
su: Authentication failure
user@linuxcoin:~$ su
Password:
su: Authentication failure

First one is "live" . Second is the pw that I supposedly set a while ago.

I've tried it a number of times to be sure I typed it in corectly.


Or just run a root terminal Cheesy

PS: Final PXE test @

http://94.197.185.117/monitor/

I have no idea how to " just run a root terminal "

If you are still looking for ideas on your next build I request the ability to reset the PW inside the GUI.

root terminal in windows terms Cheesy

start > accessories > root terminal

but after your last input it looks as if you may have managed to change something if sudo su is asking you for a password.

Wiki is on it's way Cheesy !!

Well I guess when you post the next build I will re-format the USB and start over.

Accessories > Root terminal

I did that, created new PW. Shut down, reboot, was not challenged for new PW and was able to get right into bitcoin.

Oh finally got the payment that I sent to the USB last night almost 24 hrs later *with* "speed it up" payment. YAY! took forever to upload the blockchain.

Now if I can only get this PW issue resolved then I think we have a bird that can fly.

How can I disable the screen from turning off when Im not at the miner? Im perfectly happy using the power button on the monitor, and I feel like the rates go down while the screen is sleeping, has anyone else noticed this or maybe a rise in hash rates? Thanks.

But no in fact I see mine stabilize when sleeping.

That's some fancy graphs! I look forward to using them in 0.2 final. But if you disable the sleeping of the monitor, and leave the computer alone, do you get the same rates and stability? Or was the instability caused by your use of the computer? Maybe waking up the screen by moving the mouse causes a temporary drop in hashes causing the rate to be displayed lower than normal, but if the screen didnt wake up maybe it was going along at the fast rate?

Also is there something I can use to analyze and generate some fancy graphs like this before using 0.2? Thanks.

Your probably spot on there. Your more than likely seeing your hashrate decrease from your monitor waking up rather than loosing MH/s while sleeping. If anything it should improve stability.

And yes you can install and configure munin from the package manager but I'd wait because the GPU and mining stuff is native to linuxcoin Wink

Did not expect this one:

We just had a power outage and when I rebooted LinuxCoin BitCoin gives an error message and does not load.

Bit coin was running confirming a payment made to it at the time of power outage. I did not have time to backup the wallet.dat file.

Do I need to re-download the bitcoin client?

Well I've finally managed to find and email the wallet.dat file out for safekeeping

I am unsuccessful in deleting and/or upgrading bitcoin so far

Tomorrow I plan to re-format the USB, copy the old wallet.dat on top of the new one and hope for the best

From previous experience that will take the better part of a day or so

Ok so I re-created my USB, booted, deleted the wallet.dat, replaced with my backup wallet.dat and lo and behold it appears it just might be working!

It is currently downloading blocks and the original transactions are showing, but greyed out. Looking forward to them actually being there.

Fingers crossed!

It took about 1 1/2 hours to re-format and install the already downloaded files on to the USB

Then on to password fun to make sure no one else can use it. (I'm dreading this part)

This is a great blog Smalleyster.  I especially loved the part where you wrote "Tomorrow I plan to re-format the USB," it was enthralling.  Bravo.

Great news Smalleyster. There are much easier ways to keep your files Cheesy I will add some info to the blog once it's online. Remember this OS is still being tested. The final version is expected the middle of next week Cheesy I would ask if you are the last poster on a thread can you edit your post rather than re-posting ? It's just the more posts the harder it is for people to search through and find what they need.

To everyone else. Would you like to see freedos and the ATI flashing tools added to the PXE boot menu ? I'm on the fence on if this will be helpful.

IMHO linuxcoin should have the features and tool to mine, things like flashing the bios is something that should be done before starting full time mining, using the tools that are already available out there, no point of making linuxcoin overly complicated. Also I though with Catalyst 11.6 it allowed overclock past bios limits, so is there still advantages of flashing?
