Hello,

Regarding to my personal experience: Ubuntu is about 5-10% faster compared to Windows Server and it is easier (just faster) to setup the miner.

Quick Guide:

1) Register for Windows Azure Trial (you need a credit card) and login on the portal (manage.windowsazure.com)

2) Create an extra large (8 core, 14 GB RAM) Ubuntu 13.10 server (it takes about 5 minutes until it is online). You can also create directly 2 extra large and one large machine (20 core maximum for the trial).

3) Click on the virtual machine --> Dashboard and look for the public IP. Connect with putty (or another SSH client). Username: azureuser .

4) Setting up ypool miner:

Code: [Select]
sudo -s
apt-get install -y build-essential git screen htop
git clone https://github.com/Tydus/jhProtominer -b linux-port
cd jhProtominer/src/jhProtominer
make CFLAGS="-O3 -march=native"
screen
./jhProtominer -O ypool.net:8081 -u [UserName.Workername] -p [password] -m512 -t 8

You can detach the screen with Control+A - Control+D (directly after each other).
You can resume the screen to check if the worker is still running with "screen -r" on the terminal.
The command htop shows you the cpu usage.

The whole process takes about 10 minutes.

Edit:
Coyote Fallback if ypool is down

You can switch to coyote easily if ypool is down:

Code: [Select]
screen
wget http://the-iland.net/static/downloads/ubuntu12_coyote_miner.0.3.0.tar.gz
tar -xzvf ubuntu12_coyote_miner.0.3.0.tar.gz
./ubuntu12_coyote_miner.0.3.0 162.243.45.158 [YourPayoutAddress] 8

A very small correction ;)

to use 'screen':
when in screen you need to press ctrl+a to be able to send command to screen itself, after ctrl+a, pressing d detaches (not ctrl+d).
I you want multiple terminals use c as command (always first ctrl+a)
to switch between screen terminals use p (again, after ctrl+a)

Nice guide.

thank you so much for the guide! sent a small donation your way :-)

i am very new to linux and cloud mining in general. After i had successfully gotten a few debian digital ocean miners up and running, thanks to a guide, i got a bit cocky and decided to sign up for the azure trial a couple of days ago... after trying and failing miserably for hours to adapt the terminal commands to work on ubuntu i had finally given up on doing it myself. this is a lifesaver! thanks again.

edit: just wanted to add that after fiddling with the 'screen' command, i must say it is quite useful!

I am using screen everyday for 8 years now and just noticed that i have obviously no idea what my fingers are doing there  ;) .

Awesome guide, I figured out how to run ypool on linux but forgot to save the commands on a notepad. Glad you posted them.

I think you should also post for the new miner listed on ypool also. Heard it was faster giving 10% extra col/min.
If I helped you and want to show your appreciation donate any amount:

Which one are you talking about? Can you link to the post?

If it is just another branch of Tydus, you can normally just replace
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/Tydus/jhProtominer -b linux-portby
Code: [Select]
git clone https://github.com/Tydus/jhProtominer -b branchname
branchname can be  any on https://github.com/Tydus/jhProtominer/branches so  I guess you mean sph?

It's this one here:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jvp4wwek8jpohj7/RlW6hzYqTz

It's optimised to your CPU (I'm assuming it does some instruction stuff above normal) and comes in 8M-1024M flavours for Windows, and 8M-2048MB flavours for linux it seems.

On my machine (Core-i7 (no AVX)) I get ~98Col/min with Tydus on 4096M but this one on 1024 gives me 140col/min.

The linux one run on one of Azure's virtuals (4 thread 1024M) gets 52, whereas Tydus' linux-port was only giving me ~35.

Here you go:

I've only got the one I downloaded to begin with (Core i7, no AVX) which contains multiple binaries based on memory footprint per thread.

http://www.filedropper.com/jhprotominer-yvg1900-m7c-win64-corei7

If you're not on a recent (ish) Core-i architecture this probably won't work / be useful for you.

Does somebody have the AMD versions of the optimized miner?
I made a mistake and lost my one...

Hopefully someone over at yPool has noticed that the link to their miner is down and fixes it.

The original set included a full range of AMD/Intel optimised miners, though if anyone knows how to contact yvg1900 you might want to let them know.

Great post.

Is there a way to update the protominer?
