Community developed Linux distribution for mining Denarius.

Suggestions in here please. Development will be done in https://github.com/jarleven/DenariOS

 

Short term goals:

  Script for setting up miner and GPU drivers

 

Long term goals:

   ISO liveCD with disk less support (USB). Web interface or other options to configure miner settings (no keyboard mouse screen required)

 

 

Unattended install:

 

 

Some things to look into :

 

GPU drivers:

Sounds like a good idea.. But you then have to decide if you want to support old ati/amd chips such as the 7990 or 280x etc.. Then 14.04 LTS is probably the best release to base a distro on. 

Not sure you can get drivers for new AMD cards working on 14.04 though? If not, then two maybe two distros are in order? One for old AMDs, one for new AMDs + Nvidia.

Some morning coffe thoughts....

What about an application like the open source Etcher X-platform USB ISO image writer. 

Open source repository https://github.com/resin-io/etcher and the official download site https://etcher.io/

 

Add something on top of this doing the following.

  • download some minimal Linux distro
  • modify with kickstart file downloaded from some denariusOS github repository
  • give it all a massage and create the ISO file
  • kick the Etcher to life and burn the USB media

Now unplug your USB and put it in your miner.

 

A review of Ethcher below

Not really worth anything yet. Just a unattended installation of CPU miner

In Ubuntu do the following

sudo apt-get install vim libpthread-stubs0-dev zlib1g-dev git openssl libssl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libncurses5-dev pkg-config make python-dev automake yasm

wget http://www.digip.org/jansson/releases/jansson-2.10.tar.gz
tar -zxvf jansson-2.10.tar.gz

cd jansson-2.10/
./configure
make
sudo make install

cd ..

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libjansson.so.4 /usr/lib/libjansson.so.4
sudo ldconfig

git clone https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi

cd cpuminer-multi
./build.sh

./cpuminer -a tribus -o stratum+tcp://pool.hashbag.cc:8688 -u DCJjft6LrKwGNnmTTEYzPhfw9dGyJct7LN -p x

#
# Status of of your miner on the pool
# http://pool.hashbag.cc/?address=DCJjft6LrKwGNnmTTEYzPhfw9dGyJct7LN
