Hive OS Vega support?


#1

Is there a projected timeline on when hive will gain support for vega? i have 6 8 card vega rigs that i have been having nightmares getting to work on windows 10… would really love to bring them over to hive with my nvidia miners…


#2

for present time linux drivers support vega only when using gen3 pcie bus speed and x8 or x16 slot required


#3

so i cant use risers then? or am i missing something here… since all risers are x1 to x16…


#4

I have them working on linux… Very successfully
Especially running with Lyra2z and it is very profitable


#5

if you dont mind me asking how did you get them working with hive?


#6

Have you tryd rocm driver?
found this page (maybe helps)
https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=radeon-vega-setup&num=1

also amdgpu pro 18.10 and 18.20 suggest to use vulkan 1.1.70.0 (latest 1.1.73.0). hiveos has 1.1.60.0

also link comparing gpupro and rocm (old driver )

#7

Im not all that savvy with linux would i just stop the miner on hive os then use the terminal to install these drivers?

maybe these help

I’ve installed amd drivers on Ubuntu 17.10 so I presume this should just be the same way… Stop the miner and then use the hive OS built in terminal to install?


#10

Except the last time I tried to install the amd gpu pro drivers I think I got dpkg failed or something along those lines


#11

the hiveos version 5.59 dosn’t stop miner, if you have this version. mybe because of that you get fail. read readme file too, under /hive-drivers-pack


#12

Please let me know if you’ve got it to work, i’ve tried the rocm drivers but it fails. I’ve got 6 vegas on risers and really do wish to get it to work on hive.


#13

alright i will be sure you update this post if i get this working… i just wish hive would update with official support without having to do this would make things much easier…


#14

I managed to get it to work on a fresh HiveOS setup, uninstall the amd-gpu drivers using “amdgpu-pro-uninstall” then follow this guide https://rocm.github.io/ROCmInstall.html.

This loads one Vega card, but it get all other cards loaded in serial, use this command before your miner start “HSA_ENABLE_SDMA=0”.

for example in my case it was:

HSA_ENABLE_SDMA=0 /hive/tdxminer.....

I however ended up reverting back to windows as i found i could not change the Power Play tables efficiently enough (yet) to get my usage down.


#15

i just hate dealing with getting windows 10 to find 8 vega cards… its such a pain


#16

I’m not getting my vega 64 to work on the hive can anybody help?


#17

where exactly do you add the HSA_ENABLE_SDMA=0 line? Is that done through the wallet or are you adding this somewhere else?

Thanks


#18

HSA_ENABLE_SDMA=0 /hive/tdxminer/tdxminer

if you’re using custom miner, just modify the h-run.sh file and add it in front of the miner path.


#19

thanks. otherwise I figured out just in the command line. still wasn’t able to get the Vegas mining - they are seen by Hive but they don’t mine.


#20

Dear all,

did you find some way, how to manipulate power consumption with tdxminer?
