Nerd Ralph: Ethereum Mining On Ubuntu Linux

Nerd Ralph: Ethereum Mining On Ubuntu Linux

For a couple months, I've been intending to do a blog post on mining with Ubuntu. Now that I've been able do make a static build of Genoil's ethminer , that process has become much easier. Since I have no Nvidia GPUs, this post will only cover how to mine with AMD GPUs like the R7 and R9 series. The first step is to download a 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04 desktop release . I use the desktop distribution since it includes X11, although it is possible to use Ubuntu server and then install the X11 packages separately. I recommend installing Ubuntu without any GPU cards installed (use your motherboard's iGPU), in order to confirm the base system is working OK. Follow the installation instructions , and at step 7, choose "Log in automatically". This will make it easier to have your rig start mining automatically after reboot. After the initial reboot, I recommend installing ssh server. It can be installed from the shell (terminal) with: "sudo apt-get install openssh-server -y". Ubuntu uses mDNS , so if you chose 'rig1' as the computer name during the installation, you can ssh to 'rig1.local' from other computers on your LAN. Shutdown the computer and install the first GPU card, and plug your monitor into the GPU card instead of the iGPU video port. Most motherboards will default to using the GPU card when it is installed, and if not, there should be a BIOS setup option to choose between them. If you do not even see a boot screen, try plugging the card directly into the motherboard instead of using a riser. Also double-check your card's PCI-e power connections . Once you are successfully booting into the Ubuntu desktop, edit /etc/init/gpu-manager.conf to keep gpu manager from modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Then install the AMD fglrx video drivers: "sudo apt-get install fglrx -y". If t Continue reading >>

Setup Ethereum Mining Inlinux

Setup Ethereum Mining Inlinux

This list is not the only configuration, just the one that I have used and recommended. For instance you can choose a SATA ssd, or even use a USB stick. On this particular motherboard, you can add 2 more cards using M.2 risers. There are several guides that should help you if you are new to this. It is my assumption that you are comfortable following the guided install. Tip: Pick Open SSH server to preinstall the secure shell if you will be using Putty or shelling in from another computer ./ethdcrminer64 -epool $MINING_POOL -ewal $WALLET -epsw x -mode 1 -tt 70 -allpools 1 Be sure to paste the url to your mining pool above and the wallet address. Now make this file executable Simply running./mine.sh will start your miner! Things will happen, you will need to reboot your system, your power may go out and you are not around to manually start your miner. Lets set up a systemd process to automatically start your miner when on bootup. sudo vim /lib/systemd/system/ethminer.service Now lets run a few commands to enable and run this service. Be sure you are not running./mine.sh manually Great! You have now daemonized your miner! Your logs are now going into the system logger. To view them you would run this: Now on reboot or power cycle you can be sure that your miner is always running. I have the following aliases in my ~/.bashrc file: alias watchminer='journalctl -fa -u ethminer' alias startminer='sudo systemctl start ethminer' alias stopminer='sudo systemctl stop ethminer' This makes life a little easier. If I want to view the claymore output, I just run watchminer. If I need to make adjustments stopminer and when Im ready to start the miner again, startminer. My personal advice is that you overclock and undervolt to stable levels and dont overdo it. If you overdo it, you wi Continue reading >>

Gpu Mining | Ethereum Frontier Guide

Gpu Mining | Ethereum Frontier Guide

The algorithm is memory hard and in order to fit the DAG into memory, it needs 1-2GB of RAM on each GPU. If you get Error GPU mining. GPU memory fragmentation? you havent got enough memory. The GPU miner is implemented in OpenCL, so AMD GPUs will be 'faster' than same-category NVIDIA GPUs. ASICs and FPGAs are relatively inefficient and therefore discouraged. To get openCL for your chipset and platform, try: download: ADL_SDK8.zip and AMD-APP-SDK-v2.9-1.599.381-GA-linux64.sh ./AMD-APP-SDK-v2.9-1.599.381-GA-linux64.shln -s /opt/AMDAPPSDK-2.9-1 /opt/AMDAPPln -s /opt/AMDAPP/include/CL /usr/includeln -s /opt/AMDAPP/lib/x86_64/* /usr/lib/ldconfigreboot apt-get install fglrx-updates// wget, tar, openclsudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initialsudo aticonfig --list-adapters* 0. 01:00.0 AMD Radeon R9 200 Series* - Default adapter The following instructions are, for the most part, relevant to any system with Ubuntu 14.04 and a Nvidia GPU.

How To Mine Ether In Linux Ubuntu Server 16.04

How To Mine Ether In Linux Ubuntu Server 16.04

How to mine Ether in Linux Ubuntu Server 16.04 How to mine Ether in Linux Ubuntu Server 16.04 The following instructions assumes that you already have a ETH Wallet ID andthat your GPU cards model is AMD RX580, if you use other OS or GPU then youneed to adjust that properly by verifying package names and the correct driversfor the graphics card. Update the system to make sure we run the latest stable kernel, and in generalis a good practice to have our system packages up to date. We also install thebyobu session manager so we can keep running our miner even when were notconnected to the server, you could also use screen but I like the additionalinfo that byobu gives in the status line. $ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade$ sudo apt-get install byobu && byobu-enable$ sudo reboot Download Ubuntu Driver for GPU AMD ATI RadeonRX580 (you want the one called: AMDGPU-Pro Driver Version 17.40 for Ubuntu 16.04.3or later). Download Claymores Dual EthereumMiner (the one you needis Claymore's Dual Ethereum+Decred_Siacoin_Lbry_Pascal AMD+NVIDIA GPU Minerv10.1 - LINUX.tar.gz or later). You should always download Claymores miningsoftware from the official post in Bitcoin Talkforums . Is better to download this files directly to the miner machine but doing thatwith the command line is not so easy, youll need megatools to make that happen. I think iseasier to download these files to your computer and then copying them over sshto the miner PC. How to copy the files to the miner machine? Option A - Copy them with a USB Flash Drive Of course for this option you actually need physical access to the minermachine, once you have the USB flash drive connected to the miner machine youlook for the files either in /mnt or /media directories and from them youjust copy them over with the Continue reading >>

Install simply by entering the following in a terminal window and following instructions. tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro_16.15.2-277429.tar.xzcd amd*./amdgpu-pro-install The fans run notoriously slow with these drivers, even though they're pretty quiet at speed. Mining without changing fan speed will keep you at a toasty 88F, nowhere near my comfort zone at all. To manage speed adjustment I had to set a password for superuser root account and change a setting from that account specifically. so open a terminal window and set a root password with: passwd rootsu rootecho 220 > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon0/pwm1echo 220 > /sys/class/drm/card1/device/hwmon/hwmon1/pwm1exitsudo apt-get install gkrellmgkrellm & I included an example of what a multi card setup would look like. Supplementary cards would conform to similar naming structure. Gkrellm was installed and executed in that last bit of code, it is a great little sys admin utility from back in the day. Right click the top of GKRELLM and enable the Configuration, builtins, sensors, temperatures to see your GPU temps. if you want quieter fans, echoing 200 should be enough, but do not exceed 250. Unfortunately you will have to set those fan speeds after every reboot and run gkrellm & from a terminal window after every reboot, unless you modify startup to include the script.

Build Your Own Ethereum Mining Rig, Part 2: Linux Setup

April 06, 2017 CryptoBadger 558 Comments In this second installment of our DIY Ethereummining guide, well look at how to install and configure Linux to setup your rig as an automated, remotely-manageable appliance. Dont be dissuaded if youve never used Linux beforeour step-by-step guide makes it simple! Why Linux over Windows? First, its freeand saving ~$100 on the operating system is a big plus when youre trying to maximize profitability. Other reasons include lesser hardware requirements (Linux is perfectly happy runningfrom a USB stick plugged into ancient hardware!), simpler remote administration capabilities, and oftentimes better stability. The downside of running Linux is that videodriver support isnt on the same level as Windows, and things like GPU undervoltingare trickier (but still possible via BIOS mods ). If you missed the hardware portion of our guide, make sure to check it out first . Otherwise, read on. Build an EthereumMining Rig, part 2: Linux Setup The followingis heavily adapted from my original 2013 Litecoin mining guide, updated for the latest Xubuntu LTS version, the new AMDGPU-PROdrivers, and necessary ethereum mining software (all up-to-date as of 11/29/2017).If youre a bit nervous because youve a complete Linux newbie, dont be. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions exactly as theyre written, and youll be fine. Even if youve never done anything like this before, you should be up and running in roughlyan hour. Before we even get to Linux, lets take a minute to make sure that your mining computers BIOS settings are in order. Power on your computer, and press the delete key a few times immediately after power on. You should end up in the BIOS configuration area. Do the following, then save & exit: Change power options so that the computer au Continue reading >>

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With Ethminer

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With Ethminer

Although mining Ethereum is way easier on Windows (just keep bashing next in a few installers), there is probably a Hashrate improvement when you're using a Linux as your driver. Moreover, it's way more bad ass. In this example I'm showing the simple steps on how to get started with GPU-Mining, by manually building Ethminer and setting it up to mine using Ethereumpool (although it'll work for other pools too). Mining will shorten the lifetime of your hardware and causes your PC to use more power, thus driving up your electricity bill. Also, you might lose all the money you invest. Thus, use your brain! You, and only you, are responsible for any damage done to you, your hardware or financially. apt-get install opencl-amdgpu-pro-icd cmake git mesa-common-dev ethminer -G -t 1 -F apt-get install nvidia-cuda-toolkit cmake git mesa-common-dev ethminer -U -t 1 -F Bitcoin uses the Hashcash algorithm to verify transactions, which is a relatively simple calculation, which has been put on ASIC's that are capable of outperform many GPU's. Ethereum however, uses the Ethash algorithm , which is set up in such a way that it requires a big amount of Memory. This makes it very hard to transfer the algorithmonto ASIC's but makes GPU's the best method of mining it. As a result, the difficulty of mining Ethereum increases much slower than that of other currencies using the Hashcash algorithm. Furthermore, it's optimized for mining with GPU's only and it even works when you're using an NVidia card, although AMD probably gives you a bigger bang for the buck. Since Ethereum is optimized for GPU mining, one or more nice GPU's are great. Again, it doesn't matter if it's NVidia or AMD, though I suggest using the latter. Also, you need a Wallet to provide your unique Ether-address. Personally I Continue reading >>

Ethereum Mining Script For Ubuntu And Radeon

Ethereum Mining Script For Ubuntu And Radeon

sudo apt-get -y install fglrx xvba-va-driver libva-glx1 libva-egl1 vainfo linux-headers-generic If you are on Ubuntu 14.04, after you reboot into the GUI, go to the Additional Drivers section and choose the Trusty-Proposed driver. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum-qt sudo apt-get -y install ethereum cpp-ethereum 5. Run the script listed above (you may want to use your own Ethereum address to mine to). Change its permission to executable, and you can start it from the command line. For example, if you called the text file mine.sh, start it like: If youre on 14.04, go to Software and Updates > Additional Drivers and set it to Using video drivers for the AMD graphics accelerator from fglrx. Unfortunately, for some of you this will not work due to a known bug in Ubuntu 14.04.02 preventing you from switching to the proprietary graphics drivers required to GPU mine. So, if you encounter this bug, and before you do anything else, go to Software and updates > Updates and select Pre-released updates trusty proposed. Then, go back to Software and Updates > Additional Drivers and set it to Using video drivers for the AMD graphics accelerator from fglrx). After rebooting, its well worth having a check that the drivers have now indeed been installed correctly (For example by going to Additional Drivers again). Whatever you do, if you are on 14.04.02 do not alter the drivers or the drivers configuration once set. For example, the usage of aticonfig initial (especially with the -f, force option) can break your setup. If you accidentally alter their configuration, youll need to de-install the drivers, reboot, reinstall the drivers and reboot. Continue reading >>

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With A Gtx 1070

Mining Ethereum On Ubuntu With A Gtx 1070

Mining Ethereum on Ubuntu with a GTX 1070 This article originally appeared on Joshua Powers blog Ethereum has appeared more and more in the news and rightfully so. Ethereum recently set another transaction record of 400,000 transactions in a single day . Then the recent drama of the Bitcoin split has caused even more attention to Ethereum as an alternative. If you are unfamiliar with other Blockchain or Ethereum check out the following articles: I thought it would be interesting to see what it takes to mine Ethereum. Ethereum is another crypto currency, similar to bitcoin. Before starting if you are unfamiliar with either cryptocurrencies in general or ethereum consider reading the articles below. My post is not meant to be an overview of either, but rather how I got mining Ethereum going on Ubuntu. Currently there does not appear to be any Ethereum packages in the Ubuntu archive. However, there is a PPA for Ethereum that is available for all supported releases of Ubuntu. Inside is a package called etherum, which is a metapackage to install all the relevant software. Both the PPA and package can be installed via the following: ~ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum -y~ sudo apt update~ sudo apt install ethereum -y Once installed the next step is to get a wallet address. You can create this by using geth, which is a go-lang based ethereum command line interface. Geth will ask you to create a passphrase, which you must use and not forget. ~ geth account new WARN [08-13|16:57:51] No etherbase set and no accounts found as default Your new account is locked with a password.

A Beginners Altcoin Mining Setup With Amd Radeon Rx470s, Ubuntu, And Claymore Dual Miner

A Beginners Altcoin Mining Setup With Amd Radeon Rx470s, Ubuntu, And Claymore Dual Miner

AMD Radeon RX470 GPUs (as many as you can buy) All together, purchasing this gear, with all 6 GPUs the motherboard can handle, will end up costing you about $2000, and should net you a hash rate of around 120 MH/s. If you mine Ethereum, this will make you around $200 per month , without doing anything, but keeping the miner running (which is actually more difficult than it sounds, more on this in another post). However, Id recommend to begin with you only purchase 1 GPU, to test with, making the initial investment only around $1000, but the hash rate only around 20 MH/s. We came to this hardware consensus by doing a bit of research. Here are a few resources we found useful during this research: Im not sure how necessary this is, but we had the OS installed on a SSD prior to the hardware installation (mostly because we were waiting for the hardware to arrive anyway). Even if it isnt necessary, it was a good way to test the hardware installation all the way through to OS boot. Were using Ubuntu as were planning on scaling beyond 1 miner and didnt want to pay the licensing fee for Windows with every new miner. As well see in future posts, this is nice from a customization perspective as well. There are plenty of tutorials available online for installing Ubuntu, heres a link to the official one . As usual, if you run into any snags during the process dont hesitate to get in touch ! Great! All the hardware has finally arrived! now what? Im a software developer, so if youre like me, the computer has always come assembled ready to be programmed. This is where the resources mentioned above became useful. We used buriedOne for info on the hardware set up, as well as EVGAs official video . If youre lucky you wont have any snags. If youre not lucky, the problems could be anywhere Continue reading >>
