Maybe rar them into single archive with WinRAR 5.01, just for sure :)

I'm getting "access denied, could not write..." when trying to copy config file to etc/kopiemtu or try to edit any of files in there. This is me seeing linux for first time, so I'm pretty sure i must be doing something wrong.

Why?  ??? You want some "forced" donations, or is there any other reason?  ::)
Is it the same way like SMOS that force-donates 15min of mining-time each day for the developer?

Does "auto" mean auto-settings and how long does the settings to be found take?
What kind of alternations can I use for "auto"?

In which order do I have to use commands: "mine start" and  "mine switch"?
I mean do I have to "mine start" after every switch?
Command "screen -r" says that theres no screens to resume, any idea why? Screen -ls shows the same even after "mine start".

Sorry for the long list of questions, didn't find the answers from google yet.

when you work as root (terminal command: sudo su - ) you should always have write permissions to these files...

Please type combination: Ctrl-c
to kill cudaminer

This is standard, common linux/unix shortcut.

To escape from screen without killing cudaminer - type: Ctrl-a + d

Will this version work with GTX 650Ti?
it's a big download, so I'd rather ask first.

"GeForce 600 Series:

GeForce GTX 690, GeForce GTX 680, GeForce GTX 670, GeForce GTX 660 Ti, GeForce GTX 660, GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST, GeForce GTX 650 Ti, GeForce GTX 650..."

OK, I have checked everything with a fresh image...

Please type in command line mode:

whoami <Enter>


You should receive answer: root
and then you must be able to edit /etc/kopiemtu/litecoin.conf, and other files there

If you receive answer: live
- type:
sudo su - <Enter> to become root user.

If you still have problems with changing these files - maybe you have somehow activated write-protected mode in your pendrive.

(do not edit cudaminer.conf - edit other files and use 'mine switch' )
Why?  ??? You want some "forced" donations, or is there any other reason?  ::)

Because I'm a really lazy man, and I have implemented my own small improvement from my a bit modified BAMT instances.
It's little tricky mechanism, where instead of modifying main configuration file (i.e. cudaminer.conf,
in the same way as cgminer.conf) - everyone may prepare his/her own defaults configurations,
for some different coins for example. And with 'mine switch' - swap imediatelly a 'cudaminer.conf' content,
in extremally fast way (<up arrow> and <Enter> until proper configuration is active - two seconds, not more :) )
So that is the default miner's behaviour (because fastest imho), and in such case any modification of cudaminer.conf will be temporary.

I hope it's nice trinket :) (and here your feedback is welcome, to confirm it :) )

"Is it the same way like SMOS that force-donates 15min of mining-time each day for the developer?"

No, there is no force-donating - but because I'm afraid it's easier to set automatic mining after manual reboot
or power recovery by me, than to explain linux newbies, how to activate such feature (and avoid any misunderstanding)
- so I decided (the same way like implemented in BAMT) to start mining automatically

But I only know two workers setup with worker passwords: author of BAMT and mine - so I choose the last one :)

As your first thing in any mining setup should be setting your configuration for mining for you (setting pool, workers and passwords) - you should simply do it here also, as usuall:

screen -r
Ctrl-c
edit configuration files (hint: cudaminer README.txt)
mine switch  (until see the configuration, you want)
mine start  (now it's mining for you, whole hashrate and forever :) )


In which order do I have to use commands: "mine start" and  "mine switch"?
I mean do I have to "mine start" after every switch?

Actually: Yes.
The 'mine switch' command means: you are changing active configuration (i.e. content) in cudaminer.conf
(what is the only place, from cudaminer instance gets the configuration)
But you can always use "mine switch" command, to setup new configuration.
If you do not restart cudaminer immediatelly - cudaminer will still run previous configuration.
So your change will occur at least during manual reboot or after power failure and recovery.

Command "screen -r" says that theres no screens to resume, any idea why? Screen -ls shows the same even after "mine start".

Sorry for the long list of questions, didn't find the answers from google yet.

It seems this means for example, there is:
a) no Nvidia GPU onboard
b) some misconfiguration in cudaminer.conf - which cause cudaminer exit immediatelly

but no session from "screen -ls" output = no mining

Try to run cudaminer from command line:
cd /opt/miners/cudaminer
./cudaminer .... (necessary options here)

- and see what is the problem raported by cudaminer.

Thank you for your answers , but where  can I insert manual cudaminer settings and are there any limitations or rules?
Like these:
Code: [Select]
-i 0 -l T5x24 -C 1 -H 2
