    IMAGE 2.9.7

    Released 2019-05-20


    Added audio support.
    Added nvidia support for 1660Ti, 20x0 series GPUs. (* Some miners - you will have to manually drop in some of them, but we can help you)
    Added rocm-smi and amdmemtweak utility tools for AMD overclocking and diagnostics.
    Added teleconsole and tmate for session-based remote SSH access at user discretion.
    Added Realtek 8812 network / wireless drivers.
    Upgraded to AMDGPU-PRO 18.50. Adds support for Hawaii/Tahiti, Vega, and RX 590 series AMD Radeon GPUs.
    Upgraded CUDA to 10.1. (10.0, 9.2 and 9.1 are provided for compatibility with older miners.)
    Upgraded NVIDIA drivers to 418.39.
    Upgraded to discord 0.0.9.
    Upgraded PolsarisBiosEditor to v1.7.2 (Supports RX590, new Hynix memory.)
    Upgraded pimpkey verification process and database creation to reduce verification issues.
    Updated all system packages, amdgpu firmware, pimp software, confs and miners to current as of 20190326.
    Removed teamviewer (not working).
    Note 1: Image size reduced almost 2GB.
    Note 2: It seems like 2.8.6 still works better for NVIDIA+AMD Mixed rigs. For 2.9.7 you will want to separate NVIDIA and AMD into separate rigs.
    Note 3: We don't quite have AMD Vega and AMD Radeon VII support yet. We are very sorry about this but it is very difficult and we have not had many requests for it specifically. Thanks for your patience.

    pimpup 20191122:

    Updated all miners.

  • Staff

    pimpup updates (all miners updated each week)

    software changes:

    Updated pimp-minerfarm agent service to accommodate changes to xmrig because xmrig unified their miners. actions are required to accommodate their new setup:

    • it now installs to /opt/miners/xmrig dir, with xmrig binary. This means you will have to edit or recreate your pcfg files to match the new setup (the stuff at the bottom has changed)
    • You will need to do pimp --delete and pimp --add to delete and re-add the miner profiles (this doesn't change the pcfgs)
    • xmrig profile numbers changed: 3151, 3152, 3153
    • details here: https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/7953/xmrig-unified-new-profiles-changed-to-3151-3152-3153
