I have an R-Box running with MinePeon right now. Follow this post and you should be able to get it up and running: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=720832.msg8281838#msg8281838

Basically all you need to do is update BFGMiner to 4.6.0. Smiley

Try copying and pasting this exact command, without the quotations to download BFGMiner 4.6.0:

"sudo wget http://luke.dashjr.org/programs/bitcoin/files/bfgminer/4.6.0/bfgminer-4.6.0.txz"

You have to type bfgminer-4.6.0 instead of 4.2.0 for these commands.

Try typing this command without quotations:

"cd -"

Then continue from Step 7 again, except wherever the guide uses 4.2.0, use 4.6.0 instead and it should work.

Good to hear! Should take about a half hour or so to finish the guide then if you just started to compile. Smiley

Does it stop the process when the text file is busy or continue on? I don't think it should matter much.
