mining theory – How to install the latest bfgminer binaries directly from terminal without ‘aptitude’ on a raspberry pi 4 8gb running raspbian?

months ago I found an entry on StackExchange or somewhere else on how to install the latest (!) bfgminer binaries directly from terminal. I can not find the stackexchange post, no matter how deep I search here / on Google.

I do not remember if it was a download directly from luke-jr’s website via terminal or from somewhere else. I only remember that it was done via the terminal and it created an executeable shortcut in the /bin/ and/or /usr/bin/ folder.

Visiting the website from luke-jr triggers my anti virus software telling me the website is infected or hosts infected files. So I can’t visit it directly sadly.

Months ago I tried it out on my old RPi and it worked just fine. But now that I had to switch to a newer RPi I can not find or remember the correct terminal command for installing bfgminer binaries directly.

More details about why I need the binaries:
Compiling prints out LOTS of errors for me.
Using ‘sudo aptitude install bfgminer’ needs “aptitude” installed, so I tried to install it and it returned lots of errors, most of the package files where not downloadable (my Internet connection is fine by the way).

Can you help me out with a terminal command that let’s me successfully install bfgminer on raspbian?
On my old Pi I managed to install it without aptitude and without compiling it first.

Thanks so far!

networking – Wireguard VPN for home network with raspbery pi4 8Gb (64bit)

I’ve been trying to set up a wirguard VPN on my home network and been having a frustrating time I think I have solved all the ususal issues but I’m still not able to access the internet or things on my home network when I’m apparently connected to the VPN.

After I couldn’t get it working myself I re-imaged my drive and tried PIVPN’s install script, unfortunately this does not work with with 64bit raspberry pi OS I’m running because I’m on the 8Gb pi4. I don’t think the dkms module in the package repo is built for 64bit arm because I couldn’t get it to install so I built it from source which worked. Kernel 5.4 is used in the 64bit pi os buster image at the time of writing so wireguard needs dkms modules. PIVPN still wants to install the dkms module from the repo if you build them manually or if you update to a more recent kernel which has them already built in (I tried 5.10 with sudo BRANCH=next rpi-update and rebooted after any kernel changes) so I gave up on PIVPN and went back to trying to do it myself.

Common issues I’ve checked:

  • Port 51820 is forwarded to my pi on my router (UDP)

  • My Dynamic DNS is pointing to my home IP – I can ssh in to another host on my network with my public address

  • I think the key pairs are correct, I’ve double checked manualy and the connection appears to work from the peers I’ve tried unless key authentication fails silently which I doubt would be the case.

  • net.1pv4.ip_forward=1 (I didn’t change ipv6)

  • I haven’t set up a firewall on the pi yet so that’s not in the way

Here are my config files:

wg0.conf

(Interface)
Address = 10.9.0.1/24
ListenPort = 51820
# DNS = ip.of.home.router # tried with and without, also 8.8.8.8 not sure if this is supposed to be local or not
PrivateKey = "Server"privatekey=

# eth0 is the correct name for my network Interface
# I have tried it with and without these lines as some guides I have read include them an others don't and I'm not clear on what exactly they do
PostUp = iptables -A FORWARD -i %i -j ACCEPT; iptables -A FORWARD -o %i -j ACCEPT; iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE
PostDown = iptables -D FORWARD -i %i -j ACCEPT; iptables -D FORWARD -o %i -j ACCEPT; iptables -t nat -D POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

(Peer)
#peer1
PublicKey = "peer"publickey=
AllowedIPs = 10.9.0.2/32

peer config file

(Interface)
Address = 10.9.0.2/32
# DNS = ip.of.home.router # tried with and without, also 8.8.8.8 not sure if this is supposed to be local or not
PrivateKey = "peer"privatekey= 

(Peer)
PublicKey = "host"publickey= 
Endpoint = mydomain.me:51820
AllowedIPs = 0.0.0.0/0, ::/0
#PersistentkeepAlive = 60

I enabled the systemd service for wireguard with sudo systemctl enable wg-quick@wg0 and this reports itself as active when I check with sudo systemctl status wg-quick@wg0.

(I sent this to my phone vi QR code with qrencode -t ansiutf8 < /etc/wireguard/peer1.conf to test the connection from the outside the network using mobile data)

I’m still pretty new to networking stuff – Have I missed something that should be obvious here?

Apparently dynamic debug logging is a post kernel 5.6 thing so I’m going to try again on kernel 5.10 with the logging on so I can try and get some error messages that point me in the right direction while I wait to see if any of you good people have any help to offer – Thanks.

“My name is Brandon, and I am happy to present CloudServer as a high-performance VPS company at budget pricing. I have been in the tech industry for 8 years as a Linux systems administrator for a local managed service provider. Having dealt with virtualized environments daily I decided I would start my own company and really focus on what I love and interact with people that have the same interests and love for the industry as I do.

I understand there are a lot of options when it comes to linux VPS services, and I do acknowledge that I will never be the next Digital Ocean, however, CloudServer will provide a top notch service at a competitive price. As a pure virtualization enthusiast, I will make sure the services we provide will exceed all expectations and continue to grow the products and services.

Go Mach 5: Huge Server for Small Price on Cyber Monday! (8GB RAM for $10/mo in LA!)

We haven’t seen Go Mach 5 in a while – not since 2016.  While we were getting our Black Friday/Cyber Monday plans together, I pinged them and asked if they’d like to participate…and wow, I’m glad I did!

Check this out:

  • KVM VPS with 8GB RAM, 4 vcpu, 25GB of SSD and 2TB bandwidth @ 500Mbps in Los Angeles for only $10/month!

They’ve also added some nice Direct Admin shared and reseller offers for $25-$50 a year!

BTW, if that “Mach 5” is ringing a bell for you, it might be because of one of the coolest cars ever!

Go Mach 5 was founded in 2015, so they’re not newcomers to the hosting game.  In fact, they have a nice little intro video on YouTube:

They’re a Norwegian company now (registered as Go Mach 5 AS, Norway Org Nr. 920 293 891) previously registered as Go Mach 5, LLC.  You can read their TOS and AUP on their web site.  If you’d like to give them a spin, you can pay with PayPal and various cryptocurrencies.

Remember that the LEB community would love to hear about your experience in the comments section below!

Here’s a little more about them in their own words:

“We’ve been around since 2015 providing rock-solid services to clients without charging an arm and a leg. We know that we don’t need to charge an extortionate amount to provide our clients with an exceptional quality of service. We are incredibly client-focused and focus heavily on the support we provide as we believe this is the backbone of a successful business and happy clients. This Black Friday we’ve decided to give back to the two communities that gave us our start.”

Jon Biloh

I’m Jon Biloh and I own LowEndBox and LowEndTalk. I’ve spent my nearly 20 year career in IT building companies and now I’m excited to focus on building and enhancing the community at LowEndBox and LowEndTalk.

boot – 2015 MacBook Air (13″ – 256 SSD, 8GB RAM)

This is my Wife’s Mac, and she has been complaining of general slowness for a while now. And I confirmed it and did the normal things: Safe Mode, clean caches, check the disk for errors, run the hardware diagnostics, zap the PRAM/NVRAM. The result: nothing found, still slow.

So time for a new Mac for her (a new MBA) and I scrub the drive on the old MBA clean of all data with disk utility, run first aid and (try to) reinstall macOS (Mojave)in the hopes that a clean reinstall will do the trick.

Internet Recovery mode errors out when trying to install Mojave from Apple’s servers (and a 30 minute boot), so I make a Mojave installer on a USB-3 flash drive and boot from that.

It takes almost an hour to boot the flash drive and even then the progress bar completes but nothing happens. So I built another installer and verified this one will boot an older Mac Mini I have. Works fine, but on the MBA same as before: an hour to complete booting but I never get the Install MacOS Mojave screen. It sits, completed on the black screen with a filled progress bar.

So Diagnostics finds nothing, disk first aid finds nothing, zapping the PRAM/NVRAM does nothing, and now I have an old MBA with no OS that won’t install a new OS and stumped as to what is going on. Not sure it is worth taking to Apple for repairs as repairs would likely cost more than the Mac is worth.

Any suggestions or even ideas what it might be?
