I’ve been testing PXE boot since it came out. Today I decided to use it on one of my production rigs and I got an error immediately after boot was complete:
“Error installing hive-miners-xmrig” and then no miners start, not even Phoenix miner.
I have a very particular setup on my rigs where the flight sheet has two miners running. First I have Phoenix miner for AMDs and second I have XmRig running on the CPU (have a bunch of CPUs sitting around on my rigs why not use them?). All rigs have 4GB ram.
I have been working with this setup for more than a year now and everything worked fine using USB pens to boot the rigs. However when I booted the rig using PXE this error came up. I have been trying to understand the reason for this but I can’t figure it out.
I have a hunch that ram size could be small for two miners and respective drivers?!?
Maybe someone at HiveOS can look into it?
