Overview of rc13 release
Hey PiMPs just wanted to let you know there’s some new updates released in time for Valentines Day. Although we posted the changelog on the product pages I also wanted to provide some commentary and opportunity for you to comment and ask questions. 🙂
Besides updated miners, new pascal miner, and lots of other bug fixes for performance and reliability… We made minerfarm much more reliable, stable, and capable. You can now remote switch and reboot rigs and agent services, and more. The helpme, pimp –test and other troubleshooting tools continue to get better and more useful…. And more!
Glad to see all of your support as we continue to refine and release updates and features to your PiMP rigs! See you on IRC!
How to update to rc13
So, the rc13 release of pimp1.9 and pimp2.0: available 2 different ways:
#1: (2.0 only at this time.) Your My Downloads section on getpimp.org always should have the latest release build. So your download links were updated to the rc13 links. Yes, I know that it shows a couple different links for each version, this is because we made the website provide you all versions of PiMP that work with your key, no matter what version you “checkout with”.
#2: Run command
pimpup in your PiMP terminal, and it will self-update pimpup as well as all pimp and miner.farm software and default conf files automatically! Then, the only other changes to bring your rig up to rc13 are: Update (install) sgminer-pascal miner. Both of these are menu items available in pimpup. Then if you like, you can also do:
apt update && apt -y upgrade to install all the Ubuntu system package updates. (On 1.9, to fix a bug, you should also do:
apt install -y gnome-screenshot)
