Bitcoin Mining Software for Ubuntu

How do I set my ubuntu server (12.04.1) to mine bitcoin? (usb sapphire)

I have an old laptop which I have been setting up to work as a personal cloud/server. I have a second just straight up ubuntu computer that I could use, so if ubuntu server doesn't work due to some minor difference, I could use that one instead.
Anyways, how can I setup an Ubuntu computer to mine bitcoin with the usb sapphire block erupter?

[ANN][ANDROID MINING][AIRDROP] NewEnglandcoin: Scrypt RandomSpike

New England
New England 6 States Songs: https://www.reddit.com/newengland/comments/er8wxd/new_england_6_states_songs/
NewEnglandcoin
Symbol: NENG
NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones.
Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt.
1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377
NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number
Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists
NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs.
The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity.

CPU Minable Coin Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software.
Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%.
NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones.

Decentralization and Community Driven NewEnglandcoin is a decentralized coin just like bitcoin. There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG.
We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

ASIC/GPU Mining Pools Warning to Big ASIC Miners Due to DynDiff Algo on top of Scrypt, solo mining is recommended for ASIC/GPU miners. Further more, even for mining pools, small mining pool will generate better performance than big NENG mining pool because of new algo v1.2.x post hard fork.
The set up configuration of NENG for scrypt pool mining is same as a typical normal scrypt coin. In other word, DynDiff on Scrypt algo is backward compatible with Scrypt algo. Because ASIC/GPU miners rely on CPU miners for smooth blockchain movement, checkout bottom of "Latest News" section for A WARNING to All ASIC miners before you decide to dump big ASIC hash rate into NENG mining.
(1) Original DynDiff Warning: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027091.msg48324708#msg48324708 (2) New Warning on RandomSpike Spike difficulty (244k) introduced in RandomSpike served as roadblocks to instant mining and provide security against 51% attack risk. However, this spike difficulty like a roadblock that makes big ASIC mining less profitable. In case of spike block to be mined, the spike difficulty immediately serve as base difficulty, which will block GPU/ASIC miners effectively and leave CPU cheetah solo miners dominating mining almost 100% until next base difficulty reset.

How to get a public static ip for your local lightning node

My lightning node is a node that is running locally on my server hardware in my house down under, far from the New Jersey Digitalocean datacenter, which is what will come up if you look up the ip of the node. This is done via an OpenVPN tunnel from your local machine to a VPS. I am doing this by renting a VPS from Digitalocean for $20 a month (2 vCPUs, 2GB RAM) running Ubuntu 18.04. You can do this just as easily on a $5 a month VPS with 1 vCPU and 1GB RAM or even a $2.50 a month VPS from Vultr with 512MB RAM. I needed the extra power because I have many web services running there as well.
This setup allows me to have a highly available lightning node, not affected by my home IP address changing. If you are using a mobile connection or have a CGNAT, you wont be able to port forward for your lightning node. This setup allows you to do so. You can also use this to make a portable lightning node, which can get you a full lightning node wherever you have power and internet, without having to mess with network settings. If you don't want others to know your home IP, this is a good option for privacy.
  1. Setup a local lightning node, preferably on a linux machine. I followed the Raspibolt tu`ial (with some tweaks) on a 2 vCPU and 8GB RAM VM running Ubuntu 16.04.
  2. Get a VPS with a static IP address. Digitalocean and Vultr VPSs already are. This VPS wont need much power, so get the cheapest one you can.
  3. Secure the VPS. I used this tutorial. Essentially, setup a non root user, use ssh keys, and setup ufw. Also make sure to allow port 9735 through ufw for lightning. I also additionally made adjustments to the ssh config and installed fail2ban.
  4. Setup an OpenVPN server on the VPS. I used this tutorial.
  5. Install on OpenVPN client on the local linux machine and connect to the server. The tutorial from step 4 shows how to this. Keep this connected for step 6.
  6. SSH into the VPS and figure out the OpenVPN IP address of the client. It should be 10.8.0.x. To figure out the x, setup a simple python web server or something on the local machine on port 8000 or something and open the port on ufw in the local machine. Keep the OpenVPN connection, and use a new ssh session when accessing your local machine. Don't kill the OpenVPN connection, as it may complicate things when finding the ip.
    mkdir testweb
    cd testweb
    echo hello >> index.html
    sudo ufw allow 8000
    python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
  7. SSH back into the VPS. Run the curl command below, and try all the numbers between 2-10 for x. When you get hello as your output, then you found the right IP. I found mine at 6. You may have to try higher numbers, but this is unlikely. You can kill your python webserver on your local machine once you find it.
    curl 10.8.0.x:8000
  8. Once you have the IP, you want to make this static, so it doesn't change when you reconnect. This is done on the VPS side, so ssh back into the VPS. This tutorial worked for me. Just make sure to change values like the CommonName and and the IP to match yours (client1 and 10.8.0.x). If it doesn't work search "make openvpn ip static" and look around.
  9. SSH into your local machine, and make the OpenVPN connection persistent. You can kill the OpenVPN connection now. Doing this and this worked for me. If it doesn't work search "openvpn keepalive" or "openvpn auto connect linux" or "make openvpn connection persistent linux".
  10. Restart your local machine, and make sure it connects on boot. Do the python webserver test again, and make sure the same ip is shown on the VPS, and it is still accessible.
  11. SSH back into the VPS. Now, you have to port forward with iptables. you have to add the 2 lines below starting with -A PREROUTING in the same place in your /etc/ufw/before.rules file. Here is what mine looks like. Change the x to your OpenVPN IP. Do sudo ufw disable and sudo ufw enable to restart ufw to update your changes.
    *nat
    :POSTROUTING ACCEPT [0:0]
    -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 9735 -j DNAT --to-destination 10.8.0.x:9735
    -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p udp -m udp --dport 9735 -j DNAT --to-destination 10.8.0.x:9735
    -A POSTROUTING -s 10.8.0.0/8 -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
    COMMIT
  12. SSH into your local machine. Change your lnd.conf to match with this setup, like changing the externalip. Here is what my config looks like, a slight tweak from the Raspibolt one:
    [Application Options]
    debuglevel=info
    maxpendingchannels=5
    alias=GCUBED [LND]
    color=#68F442
    listen=0.0.0.0:9735
    externalip=157.230.95.74:9735
    [Bitcoin]
    bitcoin.active=1
    bitcoin.mainnet=1
    bitcoin.node=bitcoind
    [autopilot]
    autopilot.active=1
    autopilot.maxchannels=5
    autopilot.allocation=0.6
  13. Do a sudo service lnd restart to restart lnd and apply the changes. Remember to do a lncli unlock after any restarts. Your lnd node should now have a public static ip. Look it up a few hours after you do this on 1ml, your ip should be the one of your VPS now.
I am monitoring this for free with uptimerobot. It will notify you if it has gone down. So far mine has been running for 3 days and hasn't gone down.
EDIT: Formatting
EDIT 2: The main reason I didn't use a ddns or a hidden service was mainly for high uptime, and low latency. I am planning on developing a lapp with this node and I didn't want to risk any downtime. Running lightning as a hidden service is a great idea as well, this tutorial shows how to achieve something similar with the clearnet.
EDIT 3: You can achieve a similar result from using TOR

(Updated) [Staking] Reddcoin Core client GUI wallet on a Raspberry Pi Model 3B

Intro

This thread is an update to my first Reddcoin staking tutorial that was written 7 months ago.
 
The reason for the update
My Reddcoin Core software crashed and became unusable. My Raspberry Pi 3B would lag and freeze, I couldn't stake anymore.
 
Instead of just redoing everything the same way, I wanted to see if I could improve on 3 points:
 
The updates
 
If you would like to tip me
Writing a tutorial like this takes time and effort; tips are appreciated. My Reddcoin address: RqvdnNX5MTam855Y2Vudv7yVgtXdcYaQAW.
     

Overview

 

Steps

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
     

Video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Snr5e8bzftI
This video shows how long it takes to start Reddcoin Core.   TL;DR:
     

Extra

Backup
Backup your wallet to prevent losing the RDDs in your wallet! There are two methods to backup, do both. Make new backups if you create a new receiving address!
 
 
   
Boot with only 1 USB drive plugged in:
Make sure only the USB drive (with the swap partition and data partition) is plugged in when you boot up your Raspberry Pi. This to make sure the swap partition (/dev/sda1) is recognized correctly.   If you boot up with multiple USB drives, Lubuntu might see the USB drive with the swap partition as the second drive (instead of the first drive), and ignore the 2 GB swap partition. If this happens, starting Reddcoin can render the Raspberry Pi unresponsive.
   
Connection issues If you have issues syncing the blockchain because you have 0 network connections, please follow the instructions in this thread.
   
Start Reddcoin Core easier
Run a shell script (.sh file), so you can start Reddcoin just by double clicking on an icon on your Desktop.
   
Minimization options
Adjust minimization options, so you can safely press on the X button (the close/exit button on the upper right corner).
   
RealVNC VNC Viewer (client) and VNC Connect (server): To remote connect to the Raspberry Pi, I use VNC Viewer ad VNC Connect from RealVNC.
 
   
Chromium as browser: The updates break Firefox, the browser crashes when you try to run it. Install another browser, Chromium, to solve this issue.
   
Updates / Upgrades
If Software Updater shows up and tells you that there is updated software available, do not install the updates using Software Updater. Use LXTerminal to update Lubuntu.

New to Ðogecoin?

Ðogecoin is a community friendly crypto-currency. Very similar to Bitcoin, but with a more noob-friendly and welcoming community. Be sure to check the sidebar - Being a new shibe though, you may be better served with a reddit-style self-post.
To do the special Ð character, hold alt and type 0208.
To do the special Ð character on Ubuntu 12.04: Ctrl + Shift + U; then type 00D0; finally press enter for Ð (Starkythefox)
To do the special Ð via HTML: & ETH; (no space) (cdeverett)
Do not expect to make a fortune in Ðogecoin. A Ðoge is worth about 0.00052 cents USD. The fact it has gotten so popular shocked even the creators, so consider Dogecoin your 'fuck around' cryptocurrency: You can afford to make mistakes while you learn.
What is a shibe? - A useholder of Dogecoin
What is this about the moon? - A lot of other cryptocurrencies including bitcoin expect the price of their coins to appreciate to the point they can buy huge mansions in which to store all their smaller mansions and little gold statues of other mansions. Shibes know the price of Ðogecoin will go to the moon. (Warning: Moon is not a tangible number. Heating in your house may be turned off if you attempt to pay in dogecoin)
Don't use an online wallet - Download the wallet program directly to your computer. You'll have full control and prevent leaving your Ðoge in the hands of strangers.
Sign up with a pool and try to mine some coin for yourself. Even if your computer sucks! It feels great when you see some mined coin pop up in your wallet.
Seriously. Try mining! Mining can be a bit daunting to begin with, but its very rewarding and you'll have a much better grasp of the beginning to end of how cryptocurrency works. (Unless you are using GUIMiner, you'll have to create a .bat file with your settings. Search/ask this subreddit if you get stuck)
Earning Ðogecoin Outside of mining - It's easy to earn Ðogecoin in the /dogecoin subreddit(s). Post something helpful or create funny content, you'll get tipped. Want to offer a silly service? check out /shibemarket/ (I bought reasons Mario Kart can suck my dick for 227 doges a pop a while back.) Hell, you can even beg or buy some.
Tipping: - Send a message to both tip bots to register so you can give and receive tips. The bots are so_doge_tip and dogetipbot. Send them each a message that says +register. It might take a while to get a response, but once you do you are ready to go.
Gambling: - What, is the emotional rollercoaster of a non-government backed, untested digital currency with all the worries of a pennystock and complications of FOREX not wild enough for you? I've seen a lot of people posting newly discovered gambling problems with this new found technology. You are best to avoid it. If you're looking to make money and are counting on Ðogecoin to make that happen - Just keep mining or buy in small, regular increments. The house always wins.
Faucets: (Thanks vidarino) Free dogecoin to get you started! You can get a very small bit of free Dogecoin in your wallet by inputting your receiving address into one of the faucets listed in the sidebar. Once you have some Ðoge of your very own, be sure to tip the faucets to help spread Ðoge to others! Don't be greedy and totally drain the faucets - they have very little and run on donations
http://dogefaucet.tk/ - No longer working
http://bartstuff.eu/doge/doge2.php - No longer working
http://freedoge.we-mine.it/ - No longer working
Where is your wallet.dat On win7 you can find that here: C:\Users\owner\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin
Finally - /dogecoin is all about tipping, helping new shibes out, and posting memes and image macros.
Edit: Added note about gambling

IRC Log from Ravencoin Open Developer Meeting - Aug 10, 2018

[16:01] <@Wolfsokta> Todays topics: DGW implementation, segfault, Q&A, feedback on IRC
[16:01] <@Wolfsokta> Just to set the stage here, this is a developer meeting where developers that have contributed source code to the Ravencoin project can meet and chat about items they are working on. Please be respectful to one another. For the sake of staying on target, please limit interactions to questions and comments on code or projects that you are working on. Any time left over at the end can be opened up for general Q&A.
[16:02] <@Wolfsokta> FYI - I'm RavencoinDev, and lets get started.
[16:03] <@Wolfsokta> @Tron, can you talk about where we are at with DGW on testnet and mainnet?
[16:03] <@Tron> Sure.
[16:03] can someone volunteer to take notes and post also?
[16:03] <@Tron> We are building binaries that will activate DGW-180 at block 338778
[16:04] <@Tron> It looks back 180 blocks to calculate the diff.
[16:04] I will copy the text from the meeting into a file that can be archived later. I can also make summary notes after like BTC core does.
[16:04] I'll save a log of the whole meeting and can post it on the subreddit thread.
[16:04] <@Wolfsokta> We have setup testnet4 in order to test the new binaries.
[16:04] great
[16:05] <@Wolfsokta> We plan to release the binaries later today.
[16:05] @Tron have you looked into the timestamp attack concerns of DGW?
[16:05] https://github.com/zawy12/difficulty-algorithms/issues/30
[16:06] <@Tron> Yes. And for that reason, we've tightened up the timestamps that will be accepted for valid blocks.
[16:06] <@Tron> Moved from 2h to 12 minutes.
[16:06] nice
[16:06] Oh wow okay
[16:06] <@Tron> Its also the reason we went from 60 blocks (lookback) to 180 blocks.
[16:07] why would 2h ever be acceptable? lol
[16:07] 2h was originally used for daylight savings shenanigans I believe
[16:07] <@Tron> It was from bitcoin, and it factors in clock skew, and variance in finding blocks on 10 minute intervals, and block propagation time.
[16:07] makes sense
[16:08] what about the segmentation fault when reindexing?
[16:08] any fix yet?
[16:08] @Tron 12 minutes seems to be pretty small window for clock skew
[16:08] I assume it was chosen due to 1/10th scaling from BTC?
[16:09] <@Wolfsokta> Not yet ruski, we'll cover that in a bit.
[16:09] <@Tron> We did divide existing by 10.
[16:10] <@Wolfsokta> Any further questions about DGW on testnet or on mainnet?
[16:10] What block is it activating on mainnet?
[16:10] <@Wolfsokta> 338778
[16:11] And will there be the need to update binaries twice (for DGW fork and asset layer fork)?
[16:11] <@Tron> We are activating DGW by block height because headers sync first, and the BIP9 activation flag sets a flag, and we need to look at either block height or version to know which diff algo.
[16:11] <@Wolfsokta> Calculated to be near the end of the month so we have some time with DGW on testnet.
[16:11] Someone on discord asked this a while back, but why Was DGW chosen over something like digishield or anyother algo
[16:11] <@Tron> And block version can be changed (tampering) and still make it on the chain.
[16:12] Binaries will need to be updated as more asset layer stuff get completed and tested. Not by the end of the month though.
[16:12] <@Tron> We looked at DGW and LWMA. LWMA has a lot of constants that must be tuned right.
[16:13] <@Tron> We were impressed with the amount of work on LWMA to analyze how it responds, but it wasn't straightforward to understand the nuances of how/why it works.
[16:13] zawy was in the #development channel on Discord. He's an expert on DAAs. I'm sure he would help with tuning LWMA if you asked.
[16:14] <@Tron> Either will be much better that what we have. Even at the extremes, it will adjust smoothly.
[16:14] Are there any issues or comments on the DGW code that should be addressed?
[16:14] @devs in general
[16:15] <@Wolfsokta> Thanks @brianmct, we did look extensively at the DGW code to ensure we weren't going to see the same issues that happened to Verge.
[16:16] so i guess you would have to make way more blocks with false timestamps to be able to exploit our version of dgw right?
[16:16] because of the 12 minute timestamp thing?
[16:16] <@Wolfsokta> With X16R, and with the changes Tron talked about we feel confident that this will address the swings without being able to be exploited.
[16:17] nice
[16:17] @russki Yeah, pretty much.
[16:17] verge is a different type of situation - but overall asics and mining are a risk always
[16:18] <@Wolfsokta> Okay, anything else on the difficulty targeting change?
[16:19] <@Wolfsokta> Cool, blondfrogs wanted to talk about subassets that were added.
[16:19] ooh yeah i saw those github commits
[16:19] looking good
[16:19] We also want to let everyone know that you can now create sub assets with the new binaries that will be posted soon. You can create these subassets using the issue rpc call. Qt will be built shortly. This will allow users to make an asset PARENT
[16:20] <@Wolfsokta> Basic overview. If you own an asset you can create sub-assets by including a '/
[16:20] nice
[16:20] And then make any of the following PARENT/A PARENT/B .... PARENT/Z
[16:20] <@Tron> We'll post a FAQ on assets later today.
[16:21] <@Wolfsokta> And it only is 100 Raven for a subasset
[16:21] on testnetv4 it still says asset activation status: waiting
[16:21] why?
[16:21] <@Tron> Yep, it needs to be voted in.
[16:21] <@Wolfsokta> We wanted to test the BIP9 activation process again as well. The more testing the better.
[16:21] We wanted to make sure that we follow the same process the Mainnet is going to go through.
[16:21] ok nice
[16:22] <@Wolfsokta> Any questions about subassets?
[16:23] are they unique?
[16:23] <@Tron> No
[16:23] <@Wolfsokta> Yes, they behave the same way as a normal asset, just live under an owned asset.
[16:23] <@Tron> Maybe I misunderstood the question. Unique with parent.
[16:23] Each subasset can have their own number issued? So PARENT/A can have 1,000 and PARENT/B can be 50?
[16:23] yes
[16:23] oooh ok that makes more sense
[16:23] <@Wolfsokta> Exactly thanks traysi
[16:24] <@Tron> And, not the same thing as "Unique Assets"
[16:24] <@Wolfsokta> The individual unique asset support is included in an upcoming phase.
[16:25] Moving onto the Segfault issue ----------------------->>>>>>>>>>> SEGFAULT
[16:25] Are we able to changes the properties of subassets after they have been created? Or is something like that specified when creating them?
[16:25] <@Tron> Yes
[16:25] can sub-assets be reassigned to other addresses while retaining control of the parent asset elsewhere?
[16:25] So basically it has all the features of a normal asset, but live under an asset's top-level namespace?
[16:25] satoshi corbie @russkidooski
[16:25] So basically it has all the features of a normal asset, but live under an asset's top-level namespace?
[16:26] <@Tron> Sub-assets are identical to assets after creation.
[16:26] <@Tron> Just cheaper to create, and in your "owned" namespace.
[16:26] Okay cool
[16:26] will subassets eventually have a unqiue tag? eg ASSET/SUB:1
[16:26] We have found an issue with our testnet binaries and are still looking to the issue. The issue presents itself when a user performs a reindexing of the chain. We think we have pinpointed the where the problem is and are currently working a fix. This fix will be out shortly.
[16:26] plan is to make default reissue=true and units=0 and allow increase in units on reissue
[16:26] How much is it going to be for a sub-asset?
[16:27] 100
[16:27] <@Wolfsokta> Okay, let's now focus on the SegFault issue that was discovered by Under.
[16:28] do you know what the issue was?
[16:28] <@Wolfsokta> It seems to be a build problem with the boost library.
[16:28] Still looking into though. :)
[16:29] <@Wolfsokta> We have been able to reproduce it on linux internally with 2.0.3
[16:29] yea i get the same issue on windows 10
[16:30] I saw a Bitcoin thread a while back about the seg fault error. I had it because I had conflicting versions of BDB
[16:30] static compiled on ubuntu 18.04
[16:30] <@Wolfsokta> We really appreciate you guys pulling down master and helping test.
[16:30] @Trap we will look into that also
[16:30] no problem, im just curious lol
[16:32] <@Wolfsokta> We haven't been able to build a windows version that doesn't have the segfault issue.
[16:32] <@Tron> We're dropping Windows support ;)
[16:32] lol
[16:33] Just finished setting up a new Windows test environment so we can test and validate the solution as we are working on it.
[16:33] The bdb issue is a known issue that has been around for some time. We are pretty certain it is a boost library issue, and are working quickly to get a windows build that fixes the issue.
[16:34] what did you guys do to fix the linux version?
[16:34] Once we have binaries for all supported platforms ready, hopefully tonight. No promises. We will make an announcement
[16:34] The issue has been fixed on Linux and Mac though?
[16:34] (oops sorry already answered)
[16:34] <@Wolfsokta> If anybody else gets there first with Windows please let us know what you found.
[16:34] Built the binairies on a Ubuntu 16.04 box.
[16:34] that was it?
[16:35] Yeah, we think so. 16.04 has boost 1.58 which seems to fix the issue. The build on 18.04 use boost 1.67 which seems to cause the issue.
[16:35] is there a boost 1.58 repo on 18.04?
[16:35] 18.04 used 1.65***
[16:36] I've built with boost 1.68 on arch Linux
[16:36] It worked
[16:37] wallet 2.0.x?
[16:37] @Trap, the issue is when -reindex is used.
[16:37] Oh sorry my bad
[16:37] Wallet 2.0.3
[16:38] <@Wolfsokta> For those that joined late we're discussing https://github.com/RavenProject/Ravencoin/issues/208
[16:38] 1 sec im going to boot into ubuntu and try compiling with 1.58 on 18.04
[16:39] Any other questions pertaining to the segfault?
[16:40] <@Wolfsokta> Alright, thanks everybody. Before we start the Q&A I would like to get some quick feedback on using IRC for this meeting.
[16:41] If we're going to use IRC we should take some measures to at least hide people's IPs when they join
[16:42] Yea. It is very hard to read this back.
[16:42] Also no message history
[16:42] If you disconnect and reconnect
[16:42] <@Tron> I'll throw in a vote for Discord.
[16:43] <@Wolfsokta> If you use a decent IRC client instead of the website it's not bad.
[16:43] Some of us used a VPN before we connected to IRC
[16:43] If needed we can restrict channel to Developer roles, etc for the developer meeting and open it up for general Q&A
[16:43] https://www.strawpoll.me/16247952
[16:43] poll
[16:43] Make a discord when only mods can submit links
[16:43] Where*
[16:45] Discord won the poll 5 to 2
[16:45] <@Wolfsokta> There are also a lot of IRC tools that can be used to track the meetings.
[16:45] we know
[16:46] <@Wolfsokta> We also want any developer to be able to speak.
[16:48] <@Wolfsokta> We're open to try Discord next week.
[16:48] <[kai]> perhaps you could even get a feed from this irc to discord?
[16:49] <[kai]> a feed would enable discordians to view the chat, but only contribute if they take the extra steps to come here.
[16:49] <@Wolfsokta> That's a good idea kai... Has anybody seen that working?
[16:50] <[kai]> https://github.com/reactiflux/discord-irc
[16:50] <[kai]> im sure you could make this a one way deal.
[16:51] <@Wolfsokta> I like that idea, let's try that for next week. So we'll meet here in IRC again, but it should be broadcast to Discord.
[16:53] <@Wolfsokta> Okay, we'll go with IRC next week with the broadcast to discord and re-visit for next week.
[16:54] <@Wolfsokta> Okay, let's do open Q&A for the next few mins.
[16:54] <[kai]> just a quickey, more for my curioisty, did you look at digishield?
[16:54] <[kai]> DGW solution seems solid.
[16:55] <[kai]> was just curious if it was one of the four solutions you looked at.
[16:55] <@Wolfsokta> Tron is answering... Any others Q?
[16:55] <@Tron> We briefly looked at Digishield, but our analysis was between DGW and LWMA.
[16:55] <[kai]> right on.
[16:56] <[kai]> cheers guys, see you next time.
[16:56] OPen the gates for the last 4 minutes for any other questions?
[16:58] <@Wolfsokta> Alright, thank you all for being here today and please join the development effort with us. If you have an idea, or a fix for an issue write it up and submit a pull request.
[16:59] <@Wolfsokta> Thanks again for all those that have contributed their time and effort to make Ravencoin successful. We have the BEST community.
[16:59] ^
6:59] You devs are pretty cool
[16:59] did the burn get discussed?
[16:59] <@Wolfsokta> Special thanks to Bruce, really glad you could make it with the short notice.
[17:00] <@Tron> Thanks everyone!

[help] Chrome swapping my system to death

I just reinstalled my system with Xubuntu 16.04 and it's completely up to date. If I leave my system logged in over night, when I come back in the morning, the RAM is all used up and there are hundreds of processes like this:

FAQs

1. Is MoneroClassic (XMC) a hard fork from Monero?
No. Monero hard forked from itself when updating from v.0.11.1.0 to version v.0.12.0.0. We are working with Monero Network version v.0.11.1.0.
2. Why do you choose to maintain the original Monero chain?
We chose to maintain the original Monero chain based on following ideas:
a) Bitcoin and Litecoin's examples tell us that ASIC mining machines are inevitable.
b) ASIC mining machine increase network stability and prevent user computers from being hijacked by botnets.
c) Considering the risk that would be brought by changing algorithm, we decided to protect the stability of the original chain.
d) Just like ETC and ETH, they are free to develop their own ideas, conduct fair competition, and the free market can make its decision.
We hope that in addition to be anti-ASIC, we can reserve another possibility for Monero, and give users another option. XMC and XMR both are products of Monero. The success of either of them is the success of Monero.
3. When was the hard fork?
Block height 1546000
Timestamp: UTC: 2018-04-06 08:22:11
4. Is MoneroClassic (XMC) pre-mined?
No.
5. Total suply and circulating supply
Total supply: 18.44 million
Circulating supply can be queried at: http://193.112.64.213:9000/get_amount
6. How do I get MoneroClassic (XMC)?
If you have Monero in exchanges (CoinEx, Xstar, gate.io) before the hard fork, you should already have the equivalent amount of XMC in wallet.
If you have Monero in your local wallet before the hard fork, You just need send XMR to a new wallet address form Monero version 0.12, and restore XMC wallet from your old XMR address's seed. Then you will keep your XMR safe. Wait for XMC wallet sync, you will get your XMC.
7. Do you have replay protection?
No. It is the responsibility of cryptocurrency that is hard forking to implement replay protection. Monero team has not announced plan to prevent replay attacks on the new fork chain, so boths chains (XMC and XMR) are at risk of replay attacks. To avoid replay attacks, users should create new XMC and XMR wallets, then transfer balance to them.
8. Where can we trade XMC?

Zeus/Gaw ASIC Setup Guide for Linux/Raspberry Pi

So I recently I became quite interested in mining and cyptocurrencies in general. So interested in fact that I bit the bullet and decided to buy myself a GAW Fury.
I then spent some time doing research on how to set up a GAW or Zeus ASIC on Linux, in particular on a Raspberry Pi, and have found most guides to be awful. The reason they are so bad IMHO is that they assume quite a bit of prior knowledge, either with Linux or mining, and give very little instructions. So I have tried to put together a guide that requires very little prior knowledge.
It is my aim that anyone could get their shiny new asic up and mining in no time using this guide. Anyway, I present...

The Complete Noobs Guide to Setting Up a Zeus or Gaw ASIC on Debian/Ubuntu/Raspberry Pi

Resources

About Cyrptocurrencies and Their Jargon

If you are new to cryptocurrencies and how they work I suggest taking a look at this series of KhanAcademy videos. They are for Bitcoin but the theory is the same. I found them very helpful when it came to understanding what mining actually does and the mechanics of cyrptocurrencies.
Also take a look at sircamm22 his info found here, is great and breaks down a large number of concepts. I slightly disagree with no. 21 regarding preordering. Just exercise common sense.

If you are new to Linux you could follow along by simply typing in the commands. However I highly recommend taking the time to learn what you are doing. This course is a great place to start.

Computer Setup

By the end of this section you will have your device turned on, fully setup and connected to the internet with.
Note: Commands to be typed into the command line will be displayed like this:
echo Hello World

Desktop/Laptop

For laptops and desktops already running Ubuntu or Debian I will assume you have setup your internet setup as part of the installation.
If not: There are plenty of guides out there and the installation/setup process is very easy. A good place to start for Ubuntu is here.
Now open up a terminal window. Ctrl + alt + t on a standard Ubuntu installation.
If you plan on using this PC without a monitor I would suggest installing an SSH Server.
These commands will be discussed later on in the guide.
sudo apt-get -y install openssh-server
sudo service openssh-server start

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has put together a great guide in PDF format.
Use NOOBS it will save you a lot of trouble. NB: Some SD cards don't support NOOBs but will work fine if the image is put on using a different method.
Here is a great guide for setting up the Raspberry Pi SD card from Elinux.org. In fact it's a great place to start for anything RPi related. Raspberry Pi hub at Elinux.
Once the SD card is setup you will need to insert it into the Raspberry Pi and boot. Install Raspbian from the NOOBs menu and wait.
Follow this guide by Adafruit for first time setup. You will need to enable SSH Server.
I suggest not starting the desktop on boot. It can be easily run from the command line by typing startx.
Follow this guide by Adafruit to setup your network. Found here. No need to do this if you set up previously in the first time config.
We will also at this point want to setup ssh. Again I will point you to an Adafruit guide.
Once done exit back to a standard command line interface. This can be done in LXDE by using the power off menu located in the bottom right corner.

Miner Setup

Installing BFGMiner

If you want to the Raspberry Pi or PC without a monitor go ahead and SSH into your device.
So now you should be staring at a command line interface whether on the device with a monitor or via SSH.
First things first lets make sure we are all up to date. This will update our package list from the repositories and upgrade them to the newest version. "-y" Will simply say yes to any prompts.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade
We are going to need to install some useful tools. Git-core is how we will clone and download BFGMiner from GitHub and Screen allows multiple command line instances and means if we exit out of ssh session or quit Terminal on Ubuntu, BFGMiner will continue to run.
sudo apt-get install git-core screen
We also need to download some other tools/dependencies to ensure that BFGMiner will compile successfully.
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential autoconf automake libtool pkg-config libcurl4-gnutls-dev libjansson-dev uthash-dev libncursesw5-dev libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libevent-dev libmicrohttpd-dev libc-bin
Ok now change into your home directory.
cd ~
And clone BFGMiner by Darkwinde.
git clone https://github.com/Darkwinde/bfgminer.git
Once the download has completed move into the bfgminer directory.
cd bfgminer
The following steps may take a while.
Now run autogen.sh
sudo ./autogen.sh
You will need to make the configure script execuitable.
sudo chmod +x ./configure
Now configure bfgminer
sudo ./configure CFLAGS="-O3" --enable-scrypt
Now lets make!
sudo make
Install BFGMiner
sudo make install
One more thing...
sudo ldconfig

Running BFGMiner

If you haven't already plug in your ASIC.
Just confirm your system is recognising the ASIC.
lsusb
Its output should look similar to this (no need to type this in):
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 10c4:ea60 Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc. CP210x UART Bridge / myAVR mySmartUSB light
Yep there it is our ASIC listed as device 005. There is no need to install any drivers, unlike in windows, as they come in the kernel.
Now lets actually start BFGMiner.
You will want to start a screen session to ensure BFGMiner doesn't quite when you exit.
"-S" is the option for starting a new screen session. You can replace "miner" with anything you like.
screen -S miner
Now you can run the commands below.
Here is a sample of what you should type. You will need to replace somethings with your own values.
sudo bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://URL:PORT -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD --zeus-cc CHIPCOUNT --zeus-clk 328 -S zeus:/dev/ttyUSB0
Where:
URL:PORT is the address and port of the pool you wih to use. Now I won't suggest a pool. I will leave that decision up to you. If you do wish to mine DOGE take a look at this site for a list of pools and comparisons.
USERNAME this is the username you use on the pool. Every pool is different. Check your pool's website for details. PASSWORD same as above. Specific to your pool, not every pool requires one.
CHIPCOUNT this is specific to which ASIC you are using.
For GAWMiner ASIC's:
  • War Machine: 256
  • Falcon: 128
  • Black Widow: 64
  • Fury: 6
For ZeusMiner ASIC's:
  • Blizzard: 6
  • Cyclone: 96
  • Hurricane X2: 48
  • Hurricane X3: 64
  • Thunder X2: 96
  • Thunder X3: 128
Now to make sure you don't stop mining when you exit ssh or terminal. Press:
ctrl + a + d
To come back to the BFGMiner screen simply run:
screen -r miner
You're done!!

Start on Boot

First off you will want to make sure you have BFGMiner running correctly. Ensure you have the miners set up properly and your pool correctly configured.
Start a BFGMiner instance, detailed above.
Once the instance has started and you are happy with how everything is working press "s" on your keyboard to enter the settings menu.
Now press the "w" key. Don't press enter. We want to specify where our config will go. Type:
/home/USERNAME/bfgminer.conf
Substitute USERNAME for your user. On a standard RPI install its pi. On ubuntu it's what you set during the instillation.
Now press the enter key to return back to the main BFGMiner screen. Press "q" on your keyboard to exit BFGMiner. You should now be back in the command line.
Now we want to edit a file called rc.local. Any commands in this file will be executed on boot.
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
Depending on your system this file may already contain some commands. Be careful not to delete them.
After the last command and before "exit 0" type the following on one line:
sudo -u USERNAME screen -d -m sudo bfgminer --config /home/USERNAME/bfgminer.conf
Where USERNAME = your username
Hit ctrl + x then y to save and exit nano.
The above command will create a new screen session and run bfgminer using the config we created earlier. All while as our username so that we can easily reattach.
Lets reboot to ensure it is working correctly:
sudo reboot
Once rebooted and logged in, show all running screen sessions:
screen -ls
Reattach to the session. You only need to use the numbers before the first dot.
e.g Mine looks like: 2480..hostname (13/07/14 12:02:09) (Detached). So I type:
screen -r 2480
Verify everything worked as expected. Then ctrl + a + d to exit.
You have now setup BFGMiner to restart on reboot.

Power Failure

If you are using a Raspberry Pi and it loses power it will automatically reboot on receiving power again.
For standard desktop PCs there is an option in some BIOS/UEFI to turn the computer on when it receives power. Consult your motherboard's manual and manufacturer's website.

Sources

Here is where I got my info from.
And of course /dogemining

Wrap Up

Congrats you've done it. You have managed to successfully get your shiny new asic mining away.
I do plan to make another guide detailing how to setup and use StarMiner a ready to go RPi mining distro.
So I hope this is helpful for you guys. I have seen lots of posts asking the exact same questions again and again and I have tried to answer these as best I can. I am still learning about this stuff so if there is something I have missed or a mistake I have made please tell me.
Anyway good luck. And I'll see you at the moon.
Cheers Frogsiedoodle
Edit 1: Layout and formatting.
Edit 2: Added instructions for screen which I initially forgot.
Edit 3: Removed 1 unneeded dependency
Edit 4: Added section on start on reboot and power failure.

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.

Linux headless setup

I'm setting up a mining rig using 3-7950's, and have ran into a little bit of a road block. I've seen a few guides using xubuntu 12.10, but none with xubuntu 13.04.
darth_bunny's guide
cryptobadger's guide
gentoo (bitcoin)
I've tried the first 2 ways on fresh images, but for some reason X never starts...
aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-getclocks ERROR - X needs to be running to perform AMD Overdrive(TM) commands 
Following the darth_bunny's guide way I built to 13.04 instead of 12.10
./amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.3-beta3-linux-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/raring 
On a side note, whenever I plug the ATI cards in, video (connected to onboard), does not output. I'm guessing this is because the ATI cards are primary? It didn't bother me as I ssh in anyway.
I also have some missing lib's when trying to run cgminer, but that is something to worry about later.
Has anyone solved this on 13.04, or should I just downgrade to 12.10?

Comprehensive guide to safely browse the SilkRoad

Summary
I) INTRODUCTION
II) SOFTWARES & LINKS
III) ENCRYPTION USING TRUECRYPT
IV) CREATION OF A VIRTUAL MACHINE USING VBOX
V) TWEAKS TO VBOX
VI) INSTALLING AND SETTING UP LINUX
VII) INSTALLING TOR
VIII) SHORT INTRODUCTION TO PGP VIA TERMINAL
IX) ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS
I) INTRODUCTION
First of all, I'm no security expert. The following guide will be nothing but technical instructions to securing your machine to make digital information storage and transmission secure.
Your security is divided in 3 parts. Also remember your security (as in lowering chances to get caught) is only as strong and your weakest link. Those 3 parts are :
a) Money
You can (and will) get caught if you aren't careful with how you move money. Banks and LE work hand-in-hand to trace money. I won't cover that aspect but you need a bulletproof way of buying (if you are a buyer) and/or selling (if you are a seller) your bitcoins.
b) Drugs
Yes, you'll get caught if you don't handle drugs in a secure fashion, ldo. It includes shipping, stealthing, receiving packages, storing. You get the idea.
c) Information
Here is the part I'll develop in this guide. How to handle information (mostly digital information) to not get caught and be as stealthy as possible.
II) SOFTWARES USED AND LINKS
All the following softwares are :
1) Free - you don't have (and shouldn't, as sad as it sounds for security reasons) to pay anything to fully use them
2) Open source - Anyone with knowledge can see what the programs are made of. Def a security plus.
We will need (In order of use) :
a) a good anti-virus
Before even starting the job, we need to make sure we're working in a safe environnement. If you have a keylogger installed on your computer then all futur steps will be for NOTHING. So if you don't have an updated AV installed yet, get one. I personally use AVG. Here is the link but it's recommended you search it yourself using google, after all, I could be a hacker myself.
http://free.avg.com/
b) a password manager
You'll need to save at least 5 complex passwords. I strongly recommend using a password manager (with passwords creation) such as KeePass. It's multi plateform (windows/linux/android).
http://keepass.info/
c) TrueCrypt
Very powerful piece of software which allows you to encrypt files/folder or even full system partition using bulletproof algorythm such as AES.
http://www.truecrypt.org/
d) VirtualBox
Very powerful software which allows you to run a completely autonom virtual machine inside your physical machine.
https://www.virtualbox.org
e) Ubuntu 13.04
Free OS. Very safe. Not so user friendly but you'll only use it to browse SilkRoad and use PGP (more on that later).
http://www.ubuntu.com/
d) Tor Browser Bundle (TBB)
A package of pre-configured software to use TOR. Awesome.
https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en
III) ENCRYPTION USING TRUECRYPT
I assume you already installed the antivirus and ran a minutious scan on your system. Your system was clean already ? Great, you can read what's next.
So first, we want to create an encrypted folder so that we can install a complete different OS in it. It'll be 100% safe and impossible (without the passphrase ldo) to know what it is you are putting in the folder.
a) Click on "Create Volume"
b) Select "Create an encrypted file container"
c) Select "Standard TrueCrypt volume"
note : Do your research on which option you want to use.
d) For Volume Location, select where you want to save the file. Type in a random name and click "save" then "Next" !! Note : You can select a USB pendrive (with at least 10GB and USB 3.0 strongly recommended) so that you have a portable, encrypted OS. Very useful since that you can physically hide it from LE in case of a search at your place) !!
e) Encryption Options
I advise to use AES. The technology is old which, in security, is a good thing since it means it has been tested by many security experts. I don't know about Hash Algorithm. I think I use RIPEMD-160 but it's up to you to do your godamn research on which option you want to use.
f) Volume Size
Pick at least 10gb, (no more than 15GB really). Note : TrueCrypt will encrypt the whole 10GB no matter what it is you put in, even empty space. So consider the number you type in (10GB here) as gone once you click "Next".
g) Volume Password
Open KeePass (!!!!!!!! with a strong masterpassword !!!!!!!!) and generate a random passphrase using at least 15 (25+ advised) characters (with lowercase, uppercase, numbers, symbols, space everything checked). Save it carefully, and copy paste it twice in TryeCrypt.
h) Large Files
Select "Yes"
i) Volume Format
Move your mouse randomly (to create randomness in the Key) a few seconds then click "Format", wait.
Congratulation, you now are the owner of an encrypted file container.
IV) CREATION OF A VIRTUAL MACHINE USING VIRTUALBOX
First, you need to mount the encrypted folder you just created. For this, open TrueCrypt, and click on random letter (remember it and always use the same to avoid corruption). I personally use R: (don't ask me why, I guess I used it the first time and it stuck). Then, click on "Select File" and browse to your newly created folder, click on "Open". Then, click on "Mount", it'll ask for your passphrase. Open it with KeePass and copy past it. Click "OK". If everything went well, you can know access your encrypted folder using Windows Explorer in computer. Truecrypt created a virtual partition.
Okay, so now, off to creating a Virtual Machine. You must have downloaded Ubuntu 13.04 (700MO or so). Good, save the .iso file somwhere.
a) Open VirtualBox, click on "New". In name, type in Ubuntu, it'll automatically select the type and version needed. Click "Next".
b) Memory Size. It's the amount of RAM you want to allocate to your virtual machine. I personally have 12GB of RAM and I allocated 4096MO to my VM (virtual machine). Note : Consider that the amount of RAM you give to your VM gone from your physical machine. Even if you don't run anything on your VM, the amount given (4096MO) won't be usable by your physical machine until you shutdown your VM. Click "Next".
c) Hard-Drive. Select "Create a virtual hard drive now", click "Create".
d) Type of hard drive file Select "VDI (Image disk VirtualBox)" Click "Next".
e) Select "Fixed Size", click "Next".
f) File location and size For location, click the yellow folder and go to the letter you mounted the file in TrueCrypt (for me R:\the-name-of-your-VM.vdi) In size, pick whatever the amount of GB you allocated to the crypted folder MINUS 1.5GB. !! Note : very important. For exemple, if your crypted folder is 10GB, you must pick 8,50 Gio. !! Click "Create" and wait a minute or two for VBox to create your VM.
V) TWEAKS TO VBOX
Here are the settings I use for my SilkRoad Machine.
To access settings, in VirtualBox, select your newly created VM and click "Configuration". Go to the onglet "System" => "Proc", select a reasonnable Value (where the green and red meets is generally ok). Type in 90% in allocated ressources. Go to the onglet "Display" => "Video", select a reasonnable Value (where the green and red meets is generally ok). Number of screen, 1 by default. You can use more screens if you have more than one. Vbox supports it beautifully. Click "OK".
VI) INSTALLING AND SETTING UP LINUX
a) Open VBox, select your virtual machine in the left and click "Start" at the top. You now are running your virtual machine.
Now you must install Linux on it. A window will pop up and ask you to select a booting disk. Click the yellow folder and browse to the Ubuntu.iso file you previously downloaded. Click on "Start".
You VM will now boot using Ubuntu. Install it, check "Download updated while installing", leave everything else as is.
Select "Erase disk and install Ubuntu". File in the settings needed. In name, type whatever you want (note : I usually just type in the same letter I used to mount the folder with TrueCrypt). Pick a password (a new fresh password, that one isn't necessarily important but make sure you remember it). Select "Require my password to log in", you don't mind extra lawyers of security. Click "Continue". Now, wait, the installation can take up to an hour or two.
When done, click on "Restart Now". When rebooting, you will be asked to if you want to boot using the installation, DON'T anything and wait. Now you have a beautiful orange/purple page asking you for your password. Type in the password you wrote during the installation process and press Enter. Welcome to Ubuntu.
b) You need to setup a few things.
First, you can go fullscreen pressing Right CTRL + F (the CTRL next to the arrows on the right of your keyboard). Better, right ?
You'll notice those black borders onto the sides. That's ugly and bad for your eyes. To remediate, you need to install a pack of drivers especially made for Virtual machines.
To do so, put your cursor to the very bottom center of your screen (if you are in fullscreen mode, else you have access to the options at the very top of the window). Click on "Peripheric", Click on "Install Guest Additions". An autorun window will open up, select "Run Software" and click "OK". Enter your Ubuntu password. Click "Authenticate". An ugly purple window will open with ugly white characters, it's the terminal. We'll use it later for different stuff. Wait a minute or two until you have the terminal says this "Press Return to close this window...". Press Return on your keyboard (above Enter) to close the window, ldo.
Reboot the virtual machine by going to the very top right of your screen. Now to go the options, on the left, you'll see a dock of icons, click the Gear with the Red hammer or whatever you call it in english (I know it's not a hammer). Double click on "Displays", pick your favorite resolution. Click "Apply" then "Keep that resolution". Much better, cierto ?
You will notice the OS seems slow and laggy, even more so if you installed your VM on a USB pendrive. To remediate, follow those steps.
Run the terminal (push ALT + F2 and type in "Terminal", double click to open it. Copy past that command :
/uslib/nux/unity_support_test -p
The following should appear :
Not software rendered: no
Not blacklisted: yes
GLX fbconfig: yes
GLX texture from pixmap: yes
GL npot or rect textures: yes
GL vertex program: yes
GL fragment program: yes
GL vertex buffer object: yes
GL framebuffer object: yes
GL version is 1.4+: yes
Unity 3D supported: no
As you can see, 3D acceleration isn't activated. To activate it, return to terminal and copy past that command, enter password when asked. When "asked to continue [Y/n] ?", type in Y then press enter.
sudo bash -c 'echo vboxvideo >> /etc/modules'
Shutdown the virtual machine (you can do it manually inside the VM or press Right CTRL + Q and select "Send extinction signal".
Go back to VirtualBox and go to configuration => display. Check Activate 3D acceleration.
Boot your VM, open terminal and type
/uslib/nux/unity_support_test -p
You should now see that Unity 3D is supported and your OS is fluid. Don't expect native performances tho, it's still an emulated OS.
VII) INSTALLING TOR
Run your VM. Open a firefox window and go to https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en
Select the Linux version and download it. Close Firefox. We want to use that machine on the clearweb as little as possible.
Unpack (or drag&drop) the tor-browser_en-US folder in the folder "Home" or desktop or whervere you want.
Open the folder and double click on "start-tor-browser". It will open a weird text editor with gibberish stuff in it. Close it. We need to activate an option first.
Push ALT, in that window, type "dconf-editor" and press Enter. In dconfg-editor go to: org => gnome => nautilus =>preferences Click on "executable-text-activation" and from drop down menu select: "launch: to launch scripts as programs." Close dconf-editor.
You can now launch TOR. and browse anonymously the road. I strongly advise you to install KeePass for linux by going to Ubuntu Software Center to save passwords for Silkroad as well as your PGP passphrase.
VIII) SHORT INTRODUCTION TO PGP VIA THE LINUX TERMINAL
PGP is a powerful protocal that allows you to encrypt and decrypt messages and files. It has been used for over 15 years and is the standard all over the world for industry and governement communications.
So first, we must create our own set of keys.
A) Creating your own keys
To do so, open the terminal and type GPG. It will reply :
gpg: Go ahead and type your message ...
Ok, you've got GPG installed already, perfect.
To create your key, type :
gpg --gen-key
Type 1 then hit Enter
You'll be asked to chose between 1024 and 4096 bits. Chose 4096 (the most secure), hit Enter.
Next window, type 0, press Enter, then type Y, press Enter.
You are now asked to enter your name, it's important you don't type in your Real Name obviously but it's also important to chose something that identifies you. I chose my Silkroad name so that my contacts know the key is mine.
Email adress : [email protected] or whatever you want, shouldn't be real.
Comment : none, press Enter
Type in "O" to confirm, press Enter
Enter passphrase, very important to chose something very secure. As usual, open up KeePass and generate a strong passphrase, there is no limitation AFAIK.
Then you'll be asked to do random stuff on your computer to generate bytes to ensure randomness in your key pool. Do stuff, open a random file and type in stuff for exemple. Once it's done (it can take a few minutes), you now have your own set of keys.
What we want to do know is to export the public key so that you can share it with your sellers/buyers.
Type :
gpg --armor --export your-email-adress-used-before
Copy paste the public key in a .txt file on your desktop and share it whenever you buy/sell.
B) Importing a public key
To send a message to someone, you must important its key. To do so, create a document and copy paste the key there, close & save it.
Now, open seahorse (hit ALT and type in Seahorse, open the program called "Passwords and keys".
Put your cursor in the very top left of your screen and click file => import, select the file you saved the key in. Done.
C) Encrypting a message
Open the terminal and type :
gpg -ear name-or-email-of-your-contact < Press Enter Type your message
Press Enter, finish by typing "end" and press Enter again.
You'll have your encrypted message. Something that looks like that :
-----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux)
hQIMA7eD31/5BBRZAQ/9Hq1r1gpOIf2r06zSIL8Ww0tUCC9PlNiMpemPwhpZsccB vO4MOMrnV41BHToTQNfh0xiZdXFxO/T6ow4oatP2Ap/BvZtipcAAjJKowP6aaTOJ Wgd7nC4FTJvRUjgkW/p3imlQsdTVb3+2dNzCPp0yrr8NocW77+4Ka/+4aoql0UmI 3mKLjo0+eof8qAnQd5jOaAcWTszhIwBd99rXVbRCjNa/jMsSQ9Vnn7L+WqYGHuAI MMdOCU3peifV/7zA6A0bMKzStWc1JIa84wus91/mmErkRcNZHqThCje8eulinzRm RthaH0yi7ty65F3IuSqbq/qdpdE9UXvwjySbFE7ANCPpnkP4jv+oL95UezyjbO2x ra1Il7XKbYvaf0oXJAz5xKsLfeHKB3kCR+Kxzt9NmdRZ4rPZ4ZjSN5WI9YeOL0t/ W7oaCyBcFD/6/m/63VNYZTrwrqBGqsWhXVFpoHalvd+09CffsdQjwDIMy9u3TtRk j+FDSGuukKrS/7exWSoajSDhTK+koSS8CIFvyocZ81EkGhnUjd4kxlIAu4UCXmG6 LiJXXo7X5PK7knGtlzZXstrtrrttr8FFeAbSHsZ0+ihdxtNSvx1EPewl TtLSKoUT9ickUrxFoPm2z1vqBwN/087EaCU6BSX8uwZ8GrxMwSKgVmQKfVyfgMDS RAGGtmuRwgfyhthrertwF0KV8nTajDnSqoGiMAgK7y+e320OEFnYXOKIXlue l7FvOHwi9jZbBAR4HHAfhgJIj78P =OT60 -----END PGP MESSAGE-----
You can now send the encrypted message to your contact.
D) Decrypting messages
Open the terminal and type :
gpg -da < Press enter, then copy paste the message you received. Press Enter, finish by tiping end then press Enter again.
You will be asked to enter the passphrase to decrypt it. Open KeePass and copy paste it. The result will be like this :
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for user: "abcd [email protected]" 4096-bit RSA key, ID xx, created 2013-05-08 (main key ID xxx)
gpg: encrypted with 4096-bit RSA key, ID xxx, created 2013-05-08 "abcd [email protected]" ENCRYPTED MESSAGE TO THE SILK ROAD HERE
You can now safely converse with your vendors.
IX) ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS
I hope everything worked well. Finally, the most important security advice someone can give is to use your brain. Don't do anything stupid and you should be fine.
Feel free to discuss issues you may have encontered here or by PM, I'll gladly help you getting setup.
Remember also that your security is only as good as your contacts security. For exemple, if your seller is stupid and keeps detailed informations of his buyers on file, then there isn't much you can do in case he gets caught.
I could have sold this tutorial but I chose not to because my personnal security is guaranteed only if yours is aswell. You get my point.

Any bitcoin miners using linux?

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 do I start mining DogeCoins on an Ubuntu machine?

Hey everyone. So I recently heard about DogeCoins and am really interested in getting into mining. I feel like I missed out on BitCoins and hope to get into this while it's taking off. Plus, it'd be cool to learn more about cryptocurrencies and whatnot.
However, I'm not sure how to begin mining on my machine, which runs Ubuntu 12.04 LTE (on an ASUS netbook). The DogeCoins program and wallet have downloads for Windows and Mac, but I haven't found anything for Ubuntu or Linux. It doesn't really help that I'm a complete newbie when it comes to using a Linux machine either...
If anyone could provide any help it would be much appreciated! I'm assuming that I somehow need to utilize Wine to run the wallet/mining stuff, but really I have no idea. Thanks in advance!

Having issues with my cgminer config, any tips?

I got cgminer working, but I am pulling a measly 8kh/s. Running ubuntu 12.04, with a GTX 560 Ti gc card. On this resource, it says I should be passing the -i and 0 args, but I get an error when I do that, are those windows args? Any tips on how I can optimise my config file based on my card? If I use the example config from this tutorial, I get an Too many values passed to set temp cut error, and it force closes. If I don't use the example config file cgminer runs, but my kh/s is very very low. Any tips for a noob would be much appreciated.

Bitcoin newbie looking for advice

looking for thoughts.
Installed Armory on an Ubuntu 12.04 desktop, created an encrypted wallet, and have the bitcoin data syncing.
I would like to dabble in mining as part of a group (suggestions welcome! ). Is it considered bad practice to use the machine your wallet is on for mining?

Private local pool with twelve ~10 year old computers (x-post from Bitcoin)

So, a quick background. I work for an after school non-profit. I'm the network administratotech person/miracle workeetc. I maintain the "network" and all of it's computers.
Since it's a non-profit and I'm still in school, I'm ridiculously underpaid, but it's a good company and they're flexible. However, I've had this recent idea to try making the industry minimum by using all of these "computer lab" PCs for bitcoin mining.
All of them (with the exception of two in the library) are about 5 to 10 years old. I have room for about 17 computers in this lab (possibly 20) and due to some law of the universe where elementary, middle school, and high school age kids somehow manage to break computers just by being near them, I have about 12 working. When I first got the job, most/all of them were full of malware and spyware, some running unlicensed copies of XP Pro so I have Ubuntu 10.04 on them. I'll be in the process of upgrading them over this week and next week.
The majority of the computers are these donated HP desktops that are dual-core P4s @ 2.5 GHz. The video cards are GeForce MX 440s (8x AGP). About four are Dell Optiplexes: single core P4s at 2.5 GHz with ATI Rage 128 Pros. The two library computers have integrated Intel GPUs and Pentium dual-core E200s.
Since I doubt I can do GPU mining, I was thinking about CPU mining. One core throughout the day from 11am - 8pm and from 8pm to 11am, these computers are working as hard as they can. I can write a few scripts and set up cron to do this for me. I was reading up on MMP (Multiminer Protocol) and have a computer in the "office" I can use as a server, then all the computers could run ufasoft and talk to the MMP server via JSON RPC unless there's a CPU miner that speaks MMP.
Has anyone done anything like this before? Does anyone have any advice? Is there a better way to do this? I spent most of yesterday reading up on bitcoin, bitcoin mining, etc. Still learning so if something I said doesn't add up, that's why.
P.S. Posting this year since I haven't gotten any attention from /Bitcoin.
tl;dr: what's the best way to set up a private pool of 12 average-end desktops in a LAN for cpu mining?
