  • Mining Ethereum with Multiple AMD 6600 XT Cards on Ubuntu Linux

    Warning: Ethereum(ETH) will migrate to PoS(Proof of Stake) algorithm in near future, maybe in a year. So jumping into ETH mining now might not be profitable. Also, I encourage crypto mining with renewable energy sources and a Tesla PowerWall 2 is just a few RTX 3090s away 🙂 Note: This is a follow-up for my […]

  • My nVidia RTX 3080 ThermalRight Upgrade

    Recently I traded my 2x Gigabyte RTX 3070 for a Aorus Masters RTX 3080 for a set of various reasons: For Ethereum crypto mining, a 3080 can achieve ~100MHps, which is very close to what 2x 3070 can do 1x 3080 definitely consumes less power than 2x 3070 If I play games or VR, only […]

  • Mining Ethereum with AMD 6600 XT on Ubuntu Linux

    Warning: Ethereum(ETH) will migrate to PoS(Proof of Stake) algorithm in near future, maybe in a year. So jumping into ETH mining now might or might not be profitable. Also, I do I encourage crypto mining with renewable energy sources. Prerequisite: A PC running on Ubuntu 20.04 with stable Internet connection AMD RX 6600 XT is […]

  • Ethereum(Crypto) Mining with Nvidia 3070(Ampere) on Ubuntu 20.04 with Renewable Energy

    I’ve done Crypto mining before and since the price is now almost all time high I’ll do that again, but only with my solar energy. Mining with dirty coal power isn’t ethical any more as the climate change has accelerated in the past few years. To start ETH mining here are some prerequisites: Energy efficient […]

  • Install Nvidia 396 Driver for Ubuntu 18.04

    Just some quick notes to upgrade Nvidia driver from 390 to 396 on Ubuntu 18.04. By default Ubuntu 18.04 only has Nvidia driver 390. # add ubuntu official ppa for nvidia# all commands below run as rootadd-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppaapt update# install 396 filesapt install nvidia-dkms-396 nvidia-driver-396 nvidia-compute-utils-396 libnvidia-compute-396# reboot at the end.

  • Mining ZCash on Ubuntu Linux

    I didn’t quite believe that mining crypto currencies is viable as an individual, until I saw the news that AMD graphics cards were sold out because they’re good at mining Ethereum. To be convinced I tried to order AMD RX 570 from some online vendors, and they all cancelled my orders and refunded me shortly. […]

  • Install OS X Sierra on VirtualBox on Ubuntu

    Following the guide below I installed Sierra in a VirutalBox VM running on Ubuntu quite easily. https://techsviewer.com/install-macos-sierra-virtualbox-windows/ Update: sample vboxmanage commands. vboxmanage modifyvm Sierra –cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 00100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff vboxmanage setextradata Sierra “VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct” “iMac11,3” vboxmanage setextradata Sierra “VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion” “1.0” vboxmanage setextradata Sierra “VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct” “Iloveapple” vboxmanage setextradata Sierra “VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey” “ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc” vboxmanage setextradata Sierra “VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC” 1 […]

  • 在 Ubuntu 上搞定了 LOL(英雄联盟)

    League of Legends(LOL/英雄联盟) 是个不错的小队竞技游戏, 玩的好了竟然还能拿到美国工作签证. 只是代码写的可能比较”另类”, 在 Wine 环境里跑的很是吃力. 我把图像质量调到中等, 依旧只能达到约 20FPS. 对比图像质量开到高等依旧流畅的 Elder Scroll: Skyrim, 代码质量的差异就可以想像了.   如果是初次安装 Wine, 需要如下 Windows DLLs: winetricks winxp d3dx9 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 wininet corefonts 不习惯 CLI 的朋友也可以运行 winetricks 然后在对话框里勾选以上组件. 详情请参考 WineHQ. 另外 LOL 还用了一些独特的贴图类型, 以至于 Wine 还不会处理, 导致游戏中在商店买装备就会崩溃! 🙁 下面是解决方法之一: 在 https://bitbucket.org/Xargoth/tuxlol/wiki/Home 下载 tuxlol 补丁, 然后运行以下命令: sudo apt-get install […]
