Today the operating system for mining no surprise. Minerkom in the Russian-speaking community is especially popular Assembly HiveOS. She appeared recently, but already boasts more than 95,000 registered in the system by the rig. Where HiveOS is not just for GPU-rig, but with ASIC.
Besides her there is another minerska Assembly Linux, which also runs on nearly one hundred thousand GPU-rigs. It — ethOS. About it today, we’ll talk, view and paynim.
Test versions have no ethOS — we just have to believe that the system is worthwhile. For a slice of American democracy at its Riga will have to pay at least $39:
Interestingly, the digital version costs the same as the version on the flash drive. Only if you think you can buy a version on a flash drive or SSD and redownload from the server ethOS during delivery, you are greatly mistaken. And so there is a clear choice: either to download or to wait for the parcel. The price is the same.
For example, select the e-copy. Paid by card and received a letter in the mail:
Go to the link and download our version of ethOS. Before that you need to sign the consent and promise to buy a second version of the ethOS for the new Riga in the future.
MINERCOL OS to buy for the crypt is a shame. HiveOS better in this respect.
Version uploaded, now pour it on the SSD or USB flash drive. The amount of carrier ethOS standard — 8 GB. Take the stick and write the image. For recording we recommend the excellent utility ETCHER. Simply, quickly and reliably.
To write the image to the SSD utility included in settings Unsafe mode:
Proceed with the installation. Before that you need to carry out manipulations with Riga. Especially if it is new.
If motherboard for AMD processors, check in the BIOS the following paragraphs and set appropriate options:
Parameter set IOMMU ENABLE. Option VIRTUALIZATION (C1E) DISABLE put. POWER CONTROL (SVM) set DISABLE. Parameter ENABLE CPU UNLOCK put. The setting is COOL AND QUIET DISABLE put. The CPU CORE CONTROL option specified in accordance with the model of Your processor. Parameter ONBOARD AUDIO/SOUND (AZALIA) set DISABLE. The IEEE1394 option, set "DISABLE". Parameter ONBOARD GRAPHICS APU set DISABLE. Parameter CPU FREQUENCY SCALING DISABLE put. Parameter CPU PERFORMANCE MODE set ENABLE. Option DISABLE FAST BOOT put.
If you are using a system with an Intel processor, then configure the following:
Parameter VTd DISABLE INTEL VIRTUALIZATION put. Parameter ONBOARD AUDIO/SOUND (AZALIA) set DISABLE. The IEEE1394 option, set "DISABLE". Setting the PCI-E SUBSYSTEM/LANES put the x8/x4/x4. Parameter set DISABLE ONBOARD GRAPHICS. Option PCI-E GEN2 GENERATION put. Parameter CPU FREQUENCY SCALING DISABLE put. Parameter CPU PERFORMANCE MODE set ENABLE. Option DISABLE FAST BOOT put. CSM set to ENABLE. The parameter "4G Decode" set ENABLE. Setting PCI-E Link Speed to GEN2.
In some cases, specify additional settings. For example, MSI motherboards when using AMD GPU HD/R9 series you need to disable 4G Decode.
These are General recommendations — your BIOS may not be all of the points. Change only those that are in the BIOS of your motherboard.
All the arrangements are made, the flash drive is USB connector, the monitor connected to the graphics card in the first 16x slot PCI-E (closest to the CPU socket long slot is important). Downloaded and see the beauty.
In front of us the screen is divided into two parts. At the top left, information about our Riga:
- version ethOS;
- unique code Riga;
- The IP address and the page address statistics.
- installed graphics cards and their settings, Hasrat and the speed of rotation of the cooler.
To the right is the terminal window. It’s time to look at the manual. And it is, moreover built in. In the terminal enter:
The system gives a hint about the basic commands:

Go to Youtube where the developer has prepared a selection of “useful” video review of their system.

The commercials are funny, but in mastering the ethOS, they are of little help.
For example, there is a video where the guy is remaking a bed of summer camps to fit the rig. Too funny.
C video tutorials has not worked — climb in the books. The site has a detailed knowledge base on English language http://ethosdistro.com/kb/. From it we learn that after the first run you need to change the passwords set by default. Say Hello to the users of HiveOS.
Go to the terminal window:
- To change the password of the user “ethos” using the command:
- To change the password “root”:
Continue to understand with the config. With him it’s not so simple at first glance.
ethOS can store the settings locally, and work with the remote configuration file. The first thing we switch the system on using local config:
Now ethOS is to use local config, which is located at: /home/ethos/local.conf. It we need to edit for themselves.
The system comes already configured on Ethereum developer pool and their wallet. You want to change. How to edit the config? You have two options.
The first option — directly on the grill using one of the text editors.
For Example, Nano:
Open and see:
maxgputemp 85 stratumproxy enabled proxywallet 0x0bdC4F12fB57d3acA9C3cF72B7AA2789a20d27f2 proxypool1 pool-usa.ethosdistro.com:5001 proxypool2 pool-eu.ethosdistro.com:5001 flags --cl-global-work 8192 --farm-recheck 200 globalfan 85 # ethOS Pool: ethosdistro.com/pool # QUICK START GUIDE: ethosdistro.com/Q # HOSTING YOUR OWN REMOTE CONFIG WITH CONFIGMAKER.COM: ethosdistro.com/kb/#configmaker # # Read the ethOS knowledge base, a useful guide to getting set up: ethosdistro.com/kb # Read the ethOS changelog for version information and latest changes: ethosdistro.com/changelog # Read the ethOS source for verification of source: http://ethosdistro.com/source # # There is no email or phone support for ethOS: http://ethosdistro.com/S # NOTE: Everything with a hashtag/poundsign is a comment and is ignored by all scripts. # WARNING: Using apt-get to upgrade, update and/or install packages is unsupported and will likely break ethOS. # # GLOBAL CONFIG SETTINGS THAT APPLY TO ALL RIGS # SAMPLE FORMAT: # [type] [value]
And three pages of text. At least a change purse, and preferably a pool.
Scientific fact: the pools, the names of which begin with 2Mine, much easier than the rest.
And then there is a problem. How to enter the wallet address and not be wrong? The developers propose to send it by e-mail. The idea is stupid.
Easier second option edit config.
Connected to Riga via ssh and edit the config from your computer. Depending on what operating system you are working on, launch the terminal or Putty and connect to Riga:
The address of your Riga visible in the upper left corner. The default password is: live. After connecting start the editor config:
and prescribe the necessary parameters:
globalminer dstm-zcash for
Specify which miner to run. We have a choice: ethminer sgminer-gm claymore claymore-zcash for optiminer-zcash for sgminer-gm-xmr cgminer-skein ewbf-zcash for dstm-zcash for ccminer
Here you specify the address of your wallet
Write here the address or ethash equihash pool. The remaining parameters can not yet touch. Let’s deal with them later.
The data is made, press “Ctrl+O” and confirm that you want to save it to file: /home/ethos/local.conf.
This is enough to start mine. In the terminal window give the command:
And watch as the numbers are converted into money.
This initial setup is finished ethOS. But we are only at the beginning. Ahead for overclocking and remote configuration, dual-mining and update drivers.
