DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Compiling cgminer on Fedora 19

Hayek's Linux Manual

Walks you through setting up scrypt mining on Fedora 19 with AMD drivers

Description

For some reason people like Ubuntu. I guess the less intimidating version of Linux is good for some people. While I like Arch, Fedora is as cutting edge as I want to be. Unfortunately the support for Bitcoin in Linux is mostly for Ubuntu. The major difference is that we will be using rpm fusion amd drivers instead of official Catalyst drivers from AMD.

This guide will compile cgminer for you. It will enable scrypt mining.

Steps

  • Enable rpm fusion repos
     # rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-19.noarch.rpm
     # rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-19.noarch.rpm
  • Install the following tools
     # yum install curl-devel automake gcc ncurses-devel kmod-catalyst -y
  • Install the APP SDK
    • Download: AMD APP SDK
       # tar -xvf AMD-APP-SDK...tgz
       # ./Install-AMD-APP.sh
  • Reboot
     # reboot
  • Download cgminer
     wget http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/3.8/cgminer-3.8.1.tar.bz2
     tar -xvf cgminer-3.8.1.tar.bz2
     unzip -j ADL_SDK_*.zip include/*.h -d cgminer-3.8.1/ADL_SDK/
     cd cgminer-3.8.1
     ./configure --enable-scrypt --enable-opencl
     make
     sudo make install
  • Test your install
    # cgminer -n
