I like to think I have computer skills. I'm pretty confident in my abilities to solve a problem on a PC, I do it for a living. I have no linux experience other than putting ubuntu on laptops for kicks. I'm a desktop support tech at a large enterprise IT operation. Significant windows experience, basic networking skills, zero programming skills.
I'm losing sleep over the fact that I can't get BAMT working. I can use GUI Miner on win 7 just fine.
I have a Radeon HD6850 and a HD4850, I've got the HD6850 overclocked to 850MHz and hashing at about 220MH/s. The 4850 can get up to 70 MH/s, but gets too hot. (100+). It's 3 years old and passively cooled...going to stick it in my friend's desktop so he can play SWTOR at a reasonable framerate.
BAMT looks to boot just fine from my USB. I edit the config, changing disabled from 1 to 0.
I add to the pool doc "http://firstname.lastname@example.org
:email@example.com:8332" literally pasted from deepbit. I replace login with my email address, and my deepbit password. The same info for the website, and for gui miner.
I wish I wrote down or screenshot the error I get when I try to start mining. Something about Disk being read only. I'll replicate when I get home and post back. Any idea why my BAMT experience is not simply "Edit 2 configs and press GO" as some people insist it should be?
