Dear Litecoin community,
We are proud to present Scripta! The Litecoin mining distribution for Raspberry Pi.
Scripta is fully integrated with available FPGA boards for litecoin mining (ltcgear.com). It includes system web user interface, email notification issues, backup service and system update. The project is debian-based and is entirely open source. We are planning to upload it to github in the near future. This is our first release so please let us know what you think! You can download the image here.
Donation to the project are welcome! Address: Lcb3cy5nPnh3pQWPCpa55Zg8ShZj5kUHYC
Special thanks to MineForeman for the mining web interface and part of the donation will be given to minepeon project.

Github: Scripta
mIRC: Freenode #scripta

Features:
- Mining with cgminer
- Email notification issues and automatic recovery
- Scriptor8x FPGA support
- Fit on 4GB SD card
- SSH access
- Web user interface
   - Graphs of hashrate
   - Realtime stats from cgminer
   - Easy miner configuration

How to install Scripta on Raspberry PI Model B + ScriptorX8 boards

Linux instructions

- Download scripta image here
- Locate scripta image and run: tar -xvzf scripta-1_1.tgz
- Connect you SD card (at least 4 GB SD card is needed)
- run dmesg to locate the name of the sd card device. It should be at the end of dmesg output (for example: /dev/sdb)
- Run the command dd if=scripta-1_1.tgz of=/dev/sdb bs=1024b (/dev/sdb is only an example! Be careful to locate your SD card propely or you may accidentally erase your HD!!!)
- When dd is over your scripta image should be on the SD
- Run sync to flush output buffers (paranoia)
- Disconnect SD card
- Plug it into the Raspberry PI
- Plug in ScriptorX8 boards usb and power supply
- Swich on the pi, boot will start soon   
- The IP address will appear at the end of the system boot (be sure to have a DHCP server running on your network)
- connect via https to scripta using web browser (e.g https://192.168.0.2)
- insert "scripta" as password to log in
- Insert details of your mining pool
- Fill or remove empty slots (in red) otherwise "save" button will not appear
- Click on miner command and press start
- Click on refresh button to view the graphs
- Update ui password for security reasons
WARNING: Also root password is "scripta", log in via console and run passwd to change it as you want.

Happy Mining!

Your interface is amazing.. I've love to see if we can get that integrated with cgminer and apache2..

Thank you! let me know what you think when you get it up an running.
Not sure what you mean with integration with apache2 and cgminer. It is already integrated with cgminer and runs on a different http server (not apache).
bye

Thanks! I want to port this to a regular linux install and apache2 (I see it's using lighttpd?). I don't have a Pi, I just want to use the interface to monitor miners.

I have extracted /var/www and added it to my apache2 server. It loads first page, says something about angular.js and then does nothing after that, I get an error. I can access the test.php file just fine.

I'll keep looking into it.

Thanks for the distro, it looks really nice.

the command to flash the card is actually :
dd if=scripta-***.img of=/dev/sdb bs=1024b (replace the * by the name of the IMG file inside the archive).

Moreover, I can't seem to SSH to the system, and I didn't really try to install a keyboard and screen over it. Any chances you will enable SSHD on a future release?

And if you have tips to buy a FPGA board, please let us know ;)

Thank you for the feedback. I'll point it out to drfranz and get it changed on his post.
Regarding the SSH server will be definitely included in future updates, together with other features.
Regarding the FPGA boards, we are all in the same situation. Only FPGA developer/seller that has shown some hardware hashing is ltcgear.

This is so cool it's not even funny :)

But it's sad we cannot use it since the boards are not available. And frankly there is no indication they will be anytime soon.

Totscha,
I understand and share your frustration... Let's hope that ltcgear will be able to open sales in the near future.
