BITCOIN MINING UBUNTU NVIDIA – SITE RAIRAMASTA

Mining noob, I have some questions

Hi everyone, a quick intro here: I come from a professional horticulture background. I've been learning about computers, networking, network security and Linux sys. admin for the last two years. I built a bunch of gaming computers for my kids and I with a bonus check I got in fall of 2017, right before the 2017 "bitcoin bubble". By luck I grabbed all my parts before the price of GPU's skyrocketed. All I've been doing though is learning about Linux and game development, learning digital art like 3D modeling, and streaming video games.
I'm now learning to mine ZEC with tpruvot/ccminer 2.3.1 in Ubuntu 20.04 with Nvidia proprietary driver vers. 440 & CUDA toolkit 10.1. I'm just learning how to do this and understand I'm not making a profit. I'ts more a learning experience and a hobby sort of thing for now. I dont really care if the system breaks, I have another computer with AMD RX560 that I work and game on Linux with. I cant mine with the pollaris GPU because I cant install OpenCL. There is no support for 20.04 from catalyst driver as of now.
TL;DR I'm a noob and wondering why my hashrate is what it is. I am only using 1 GPU as of now (Nvidia 1050Ti 4GB) and mining on a pool. I get an average of 140 Sol/s. Is this essentially the same as H/s and is that a normal number for my card? Should I add a 2nd GPU I have if it's only a 1050 2GB? Also, I am using nvtop & htop packages to monitor PC stats, it shows it's using 99% of GPU and 100% of a single core of my CPU (intel i5 6402P @ 3.2GHz) fans and temps are good.
But it shows I'm only using .6GB / 4GB while mining, is that right? Shouldn't it be using more memory? Would it be overkill to mine with CPU miner at the same time as the 2 cards?
Sorry about the essay, and thanks for your time

How to get started on GPU mining on Pizza Pool (gpu.pizza) [Nvidia/linux/ClosedSource]

Sunday morining the 0xBitcoin Discord got a surprise from @0xPiZzA...
hi guys. i am 0x778, again! has it gone a long time and you miss me? 8^D= i wait two more weeks since last time, want to check you to see if you are ready for gpu and 0xBITCOIN. today i am ready to release Closed Source GPU Miner for everyone, works for my new Mining Pool name " PiZzA Pool " ! \o/ new pizzaminer is ALPHA software : means speed good but has bugs. Linux only OS. new pool PiZzA Pool also ALPHA but in testing now, available for your to try. credit system is counting. automatic payment, i am building it now. XD lets GO for best! i am not support Help with this software, please figure it out. i believe you can do it. PiZzA Pool going to donate 2% to 0xBITCOIN project / Infernal Toast who will make Open Source Gpu Miner in competition with pizzaminer and Prevail in Triumph. .o/\o/ when you ready, more info : http://gpu.pizza/ :heart: Have Fun, Love 0xBITCOIN 8^D= ~~ 0xPiZzA :heart: 
GPU mining!!!
PiZzA pool - http://gpu.pizza/
Before we start...
THIS SOFTWARE IS CLOSED SOURCE
I DON'T OFFER ANY WARRANTIES ON THIS MINING SOFTWARE
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
Yet the miner works and I've been paid by the pool (71.17318134 0xBTC):
https://etherscan.io/address/0x79c5BE8f4098208006C7940cF72dAE71738b39b6#tokentxns
1. Prepare your mining rig
Download required programs:
http://gpu.pizza/#download
https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
https://rufus.akeo.ie/
Using this software is risky, but you can minimize the risk by planning. Ideally you want a sanitized GPU mining rig.
This means:
  • No private key!!!
  • No saved passwords!!!
  • No files you are not comfortable with losing!!!
Use this as a basic security audit if you have an existing GPU mining rig.
2. Download and Install Ubuntu
You can Google this.
I believe in you, you will figure it out. :-D
But get an .iso and use Rufus to make a bootable USB.
3. Install Nvidia Drivers
Don't download them from the Nvidia website. Use repositories instead. This guide worked for me: http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/how-to-install-latest-nvidia-drivers-in-linux
Make sure you are connected to wifi at this stage. The error message will not clue you into the fact that your internet is not working.
4. Run the pizzaminer software
Details are in the README.TXT. But essentially all you need to do is run the program. Make sure in properties it has permissions to exectute. Also run each miner in their own terminal instance.
http://gpu.pizza/download/pizzaminer-v0.0.1-alpha/README.txt
CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=1 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=2 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=3 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... 
5. Configure Autostart
Inside the directory where pizza miner is create a file (autostart) that is executable and contains your payment address:
#!/bin/sh xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=1 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=2 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=3 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & ... 
Then from Start>Startup Applications add the following task:
Name: Autostart pizzaminer Command: autostart (browse for file created above)
7. Optimization
v0.0.3 CPU optimization
Before the CPU was bottle necking the GPU utilization in certain cases. v0.0.3 fixes this and it's stable for me. With multiple cards on a Celeron G39XX you can expect a 50%+ boost in overall hash rate.
Overclocking (EXPERIMENTAL!!!)
This command should allow basic overclocking, monitor free initialization. Honestly haven't had much success in the overclocking department. Let me know if you do!
sudo nvidia-xconfig -enable-all-gpus -cool-bits=28 --allow-empty-initial-configuration 
6. Known Hashrates
GPU MH/s MH/s MH/s
Version v0.0.1 v0.0.2 v0.0.3
GTX 970 (40 MH/s) (55 MH/s) (75 MH/s)
GTX 1050 Ti (40 MH/s) (75 MH/s) (90 MH/s)
GTX 1060 (60-70** MH/s) (100 MH/s) (150 MH/s)
GTX 1070 Ti (90** MH/s) () ()
GTX 1080 Ti (140** MH/s) () (325** MH/s)
**unconfirmed
Please tell me your hashrates to add to this table!!!
If this guide has been helpful please consider donating:

MSI 270 A-PRO 6 GPU, help needed !

Hello fellow reddit miners.
I need some help it's driving me mad, been struggling on this for 2 weeks straight.
I am not that new to mining, been using antminer to mine bitcoin and a few gpu to mine several other altcoin for quite some time now. I recently decided to put more in GPU mining and bought several MSI 270 A-PRO, with 6 GTX 1060 each, the appropriate number of USB 3 risers, and everything else needed for this to work.
I never seems to be able to get all 6 PCI slot to be recognised at the same time, it's driving me mad.
What I did : - flashing the bios for latest version - installing windows 10 and ubuntu, UEFI - checking and switching between several power supplies 450 to 650 and mixes of both - trying each cards and each risers in the first PCI x16 slot, and they are all being detected and working there - installing, clean installing and reinstalling nvidia drivers several times - trying to plug the cards one by one, and all at once - of course, turning the crypto mining more than 4 cards detection to enabled in the bios, and also trying several combination of auto/gen1, gen2 and gen3 as well as several (mainly 32 and 96) bus speed setting in the pci subsettings
What I get : - only the 1st (PCI *16) slot is realiably working with cards and risers, with the second one sometimes working but not reliably - the fourth slot, the pci *8 one, is working when I plug the card directly inside of it and not use riser - as long as most cards are in, only the first riser is detected, with the pci *8 port being active only without risers - I checked on the bios board explorer for card and risers detection everytime, as well as trying to launch the OS and pray for detection, no better luck than what is described above
Would any of you have had similar issues before? I really hope someone will be able to help me sort this out, this is definitely driving me crazy as I cannot find any kind of similar cases anywhere, and all MSI 270 A-PRO users seems to be running their node fine.
Many thanks in advance to any of you that may be able to contribute, and to those who will take at least the time to read !

Anyone using linux to mine bitcoin?

My setup is an AMD PhenomII 965 black edition with 12gb DDR3 1333 and an Nvidia GTX460 1gb graphics card. I run Ubuntu 12.04
My roommate's setup is an AMD PhenomII 945 Black edition with 4gb DDR2 800 and an Nvidia GTX 460 1gb graphics card. He runs Windows 7
Using DiabloMiner on my Ubuntu 12.04 setup, I get around 50 Mhash and my computer becomes unusable during this time.
When my roommate uses GUIminer on his Windows 7 setup, he gets around 70 Mhash and can still browse the web and do other non-graphics intensive tasks.
Is this simply a limitation of Nvidia drivers on Linux, or is there something I'm missing? Any advice from other Linux using bitcoin miners out there would be of great help.
EDIT:

I am aware that AMD is better than Nvidia for mining BTC. My question was whether or not my setup was being limited by some combination of my OS/Drivers/Mining Tool. I am also welcoming any advice that isn't buy an AMD card, for improving my current setup.

How To Mine Doge with Ubuntu 13.10. (Part 1, for AMD Graphics Cards)

I feel the community really needs a resource like this. Because if I had a Doge for every-time taught a newbie how to Mine on Ubuntu, I would be a very rich doge!
EDIT: Sorry if it looks funny, Reddit doesn't like the numbers I put in for some reason.
If you have Ubuntu you have likely not upgraded because you think you cant mine on 13.10, and while that has been true in the past, a few people have got it figured out. So feel free to upgrade. If you are not on Ubuntu, Seriously you should consider using it. Even if its just on an older desktop.
Alright, so lets get a few things clear, I am assuming that you just FRESHLY installed Ubuntu 13.10 x64 on your system. I am assuming that you have no drivers, and no miners. You will need at least a key board and a mouse. The guide will be done in several parts, this first part is for most AMD Graphics cards. If you have an Nvidia, or just want to mine with your CPU, please check back later for those guides!
When reading this guide, please remember that as I give you commands to type into the terminal, Anything between { and} must be included. Do not copy and paste the {}.
Lets get started, If you have not already done so, Install Ubuntu 13.10 64Bit From Here (http://www.ubuntu.com/index_asus.html)
*1. Lets start by making sure you are up to date. Open up the terminal and enter this:
{sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade} 
Let that run for a bit.
*2. Once that has finished we are going to download some applications we will need:
{sudo apt-get install dh-make dh-modaliases execstack libxrandr2 libice6 libsm6 libfontconfig1 libxi6 libxcursor1 libgl1-mesa-glx libxinerama1 libqtgui4} 
*3. Once that has run its course we are going to install the ssh server. Remember this command is going to make your computer shut down. While it is shut down, carefully install your graphics cards. If you don't have any experience with this, I suggest you 3 minutes to watch this guide, because failure to install a graphics card the right way can destroy it.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9x097QRXeA)
{sudo apt-get install openssh-server sudo shutdown now} 
*4.Install your Card(s) and turn the computer back on.
*5. Make a new folder called "AMD DRIVERS123" inside of your download folder. Downoad the following 3 things into that folder. (1. AMD Drivers: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/incomplete) (2. AMD APP SDK: http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/heterogeneous-computing/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/downloads/) (3. AMD ADL SDK:http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/graphics-development/display-library-adl-sdk/)
*6. Ok, now we need to unzip and compile those drivers. So, open a terminal my right clicking inside of "AMD DRIVERS123". The enter this:
{unzip amd-catalyst*.zip chmod +x amd-catalyst*.run} {sudo ./amd-catalyst*.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy} 
*7. Now we need to install the drivers. Enter the code exactly as you see it, don't worry, the first command will fail, we are expecting it too.
{sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb} {sudo apt-get -f install} {sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb} {sudo reboot} 
Your computer should now reboot.
(If this failed, you probibly need to remove the old drivers. Do this
{cd /etc/default sudo pico grub} 
Change the line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset" 
Now save by pressing [CTRL+x]
{sudo update-grub} this will make the change perminent. {sudo reboot -n} Reboot with new settings. Once it starts back up try installing the new drivers again.) 
*8.GREAT! You are really on a roll! Now we need to update AtiConfig
{sudo aticonfig --initial --adapter=all} 
*9.Time to install the APP ADK:
{tar xvf AMD-APP-SDK*.tgz} {sudo ./Install-AMD-APP.sh} {sudo reboot} 
*10. WOOT! You are so close to diggin that sweet Doge!! Its time to download CGMiner. IMPORTANT NOTE! You need to get CGminer 3.7, IT IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL WORK. Do not get any older or newer, Just this. :
{sudo apt-get install git unzip git clone -b 3.7 https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer} 
*11. Ok, now go back to "AMD DRIVERS123", Unzip AMD SDL SDK 6.0. Once you have it unzipped, go the file called "include", open it up, copy everything inside, then go find CGminer. Copy these files into the CGminer file called ADL_SDK.
*12. To install CGminer, we are going to need a few things. Get all of these.
{sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf libtool libcurl4-openssl-dev libncurses5-dev pkg-config libudev-dev} 
*13. Lets go ahead and compile CGminer.
{cd cgminer} {./autogen.sh} 
*14. Ok, when you did that, it told you GPU was not supported, time to fix it.
{./configure --enable-opencl --enable-scrypt} 
(if you did it right you should now get this: OpenCL...............: FOUND. GPU mining support enabled scrypt...............: Enabled ADL..................: SDK found, GPU monitoring support enabled)
*15. If everything has been good so far then
{make} 
*16. MATHEMATICAL! Now lets get it set up to run a test.
{nano test.sh} {!/bin/bash export DISPLAY=:0 export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1} {./cgminer -n} 
*17. Now save by hitting [Control+x][y][Enter]
*18.Lastly lets CHmod test.sh
{chmod+x test.sh} 
*19. TIME TO RUN THE TEXT!!!
{./test.sh} 
(If your output looks like this your ready to go!!! CL Platform 0 vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. CL Platform 0 name: AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing CL Platform 0 version: OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (1214.3) Platform 0 devices: 1 0 Tahiti GPU 0 AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series hardware monitoring enabled 1 GPU devices max detected)
*20. Excellent! Now we have it installed, its time to pick 2-3 pools, and get accounts set up at each of them. I currently use These 2, and If I find another I like I'll update. If you have a really awesome pool you would like me to include on the list, feel free to message me.
Pools: http://doge.cryptovalley.com/ (great community, server not super stable, but they have a chat. I hang out here a lot under the handle 'StrongBad' feel free to stop buy and ask questions)
https://dogehouse.org/ (Super stable pool, Great contests, super friendly, and they pay your miner a bonus if you find the block!)
Choose your pools, go to their sites and sign up. VERY IMPORTANT!!! Use different usernames and passwords for every mining site. If one site gets hacked, you don't want to give them a way to steal everything!!!!! Don't worry about the worker names and passwords being unique or complex tho, the most they can do with this is mine for you.
*21. Ok, now go to the CGminer folder, and open up a Terminal Window.
{sudo ./cgminer} 
This should start ./cgminer up with some really basic settings, and not pointed at any pool. Lets fix that: First press [p] to go to pool settings Now [A] and enter the information for the 1st pool. For instance if you are signing on for dogehouse: (Input server details: stratum+tcp://stratum.dogehouse.org:3333 Username: 'yourusername.workername password: 'yourpassword') If you got no errors, you did it right! Your miner should now connect and start to mine very slowly.
Now, do the same thing for all your other pools. the reason we do this is because Doge Coin pools are constantly being DDoS attacked, and this way your worker automatically switches over to a good pool if one go's down.
*22. time to save your current settings press [Enter] to get back out to the main menu, then [s] to bring up settings. Now press [W] to write a Config file. Name it DogeCoin.conf, and make sure to save it in the location it directs you too.
*23.OK! So, now we have everything set up to its basics. What you need to do now is sit down, and fine tune your Card(s). Its really early in the morning, and I need to get some sleep, I will add more on how to tune your card tomorrow in another post, and link it HERE:
Or, I will help you find the best configuration for your card(s). However as this is quite a bit of work, I do charge a small fee. Contact me with your card(s) information and I will get back to you right away. I generally let you decide how much to pay me.
This is my first ever guide on reddit! If you enjoyed it, or if it helped you please remember to upvote! I am going to start doing an educational YouTube series about Bitcoin, and will likely be doing a side program about Doge, if I find time and funding!! You can find that here: All tips are appreciated! DPTwcQreASwzt6TeWBWFb6Kz9ZU5Sezvr9 If you have any Questions, feel free to ask, I will get back to you ASAP.
Happy Digging everybody!
