Sometimes users want to try other drivers. Really advanced would not ask such questions,
but if you want to play here is a guide.


Starting from 0.5-70 there is an utility to Nvidia install driver which you can use from web or on shell. It will install the latest stable driver for Hive.

nvidia-driver-update

Or you can give URL of driver to install:

nvidia-driver-update http://download.hiveos.farm/drivers/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.59.run 

On some systems overclocking may fail after upgrade, try to run this to fix

apt-get install --reinstall -y nvidia-settings

General notes

You need to have SSH or Teleconsle or physical access to the rig.

By default TMP directory is on RAM disk so you need to enable logs to have some space.

logs-on
reboot

Go to /hive-drivers-pack
If don’t know how to “go” then close this page please.

If you need some historical drivers please find them here
http://download.hiveos.farm/drivers/
Or download a new one you want.

Stop X server with systemctl stop hivex or killall xinit
Stop miner with miner stop

For AMD

tar -Jxvf amdgpu-pro-XXXX.tar.xz
cd amdgpu-pro-XXXX
./amdgpu-pro-install -y
dpkg -l amdgpu-pro

To install new amd driver you need to unisntall previous one, please run “amdgpu-pro-uninstall”.
Please unpack currently installed driver tar.gz to /var/opt/amdgpu-pro-local then “amdgpu-pro-uninstall” will work.
It was removed to save space.

For NVIDIA

Just run NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-3xx.yy.run
In rare cases it fails to compile DKMS module or something then I reboot and try again. Usually it works from the second try.

I’m a new miner. But, I’ve tried other OS and HIVE is by far the best. Very impressed. I am wondering though if you are considering adding new nvidia drivers in a new update. Or can you explain how to get the latest ones installed? All the best to you and thanks so much!

Try to read topic carefully once more

You forgot to mention that if you uninstall AMD drivers you’ve also to run amdgpu-install --opencl=legacy for pre Vega10 cards or amdgpu-install --opencl=pal for Vega10 or newer, otherwise you’ll have no OpenCL and the miner won’t use AMD cards to mine.

this guide helped me.

nvidia-driver-update doesn’t work for me.

nvidia-driver-update http://download.hiveos.farm/drivers/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-396.54.run also didn’t work for me.


#9

When will Nvidia drivers v 411.63 be available for update? Have a 2080 I’d like to try out.


#10

You can try it for your own risk
nvidia-driver-update <URL of driver>


#11

worked perfectly. Thanks man.


#12

Do you know when Hive plans to role out tested updated drivers?


#13

Sorry, difficult to answer


#14

You will have to do it twice or need to hard reboot after doing the commands. did mine and after a few restart, Drivers is now latest.


#15

When I try to run the update HiveOS reboots and it just hangs, I need to power cycle it. Any idea?
