Over the past eight months PiMP received three version releases: 1.9/2.0 were released as a set supporting legacy and modern AMD GPUs (See: Which PiMP is right for you), followed by 2.1 released supporting NVidia. During this time we saw record numbers in growth, as the only Linux mining platform to support nvidia users!
Alongside this rocket growth, Miner.Farm has seen great improvements in fixes, structure, and setup. Improvements have streamlined the product to be able to handle even the most hardened miners out there.

LOVE FOR NVIDIA:
Our team has been working over time to meet the demands of our new Nvidia users. Overclockers, your voice has been heard and we have been dying to release the new gputool. The new gputool allows for fan and clock management, PER-GPU, for both AMDGPU and NVIDIA versions of PiMP.
Get this via your pimpup or the new img located in the “My Downloads” page on getpimp.org.
For details how to use gputool, Check out our gputool post in the PiMP Guide section 4.4
Are your stats wrong? Are you getting 0mh/s but the miner is running? Does it say screen is terminating without starting the miner? Does the miner not run? Does the miner screen exit? Here is how to fix it!
Step 1: Run the command pimpup in the terminal and update both the PiMP software, as well as the miner you are running.
Step 2: Does this profile run fine with the defaults? For example, profile 2501 uses ewbfminer and you can restore the default config with: del nvidia.ewbf.zcash.pcfg and then run it with: `pimp –test 1` (if it is miner id #1 in the `pimp –list`).
Step 3: If `pimp –test 1` does not show you the right information you can go a step further and run without stats and without the screen. This is just for testing: `pimp –debug 1`
Step 4: If you run fine with the default conf then you know it’s your conf that is the problem. Double check it with checkconf command.

FEATURE OF THE MONTH:
‘showme’ – This is an alias we built to a pastebin service. You can do ‘showme filename’ or ‘showme command’ and it will paste the output to the pastebin.
Find all the helpful tools via ‘pimp –help’ and ‘minerfarm –help’
With being one of the first platforms to support Linux users, and the explosion of the Nvidia market this month, we’re excited to see lots of new great miners with great ideas for how to use our tools to optimize your mining experience. In the future, you can expect to see us feature cool new rig designs and some awesome workshop articles.
