Tutorial: One Click Miner

Overline's One-Click Miner is the easiest way to run a GPU miner from scratch.

Prerequisites

  • Windows 10 Operating System (Home or Pro).
  • Google Chrome installed.
  • An Nvidia GPU.

If you meet the above must-haves, then it's time to download the One Click Miner!

Find the download link here: One Click Miner

Once downloaded, you will likely need to re-affirm that you trust the application. Then open the app.

SETUP

Once opened, the OCM app will display 3 System Requirements:

  • 1. Windows 10 (OS build 20262 or higher)
  • 2. Ubuntu 18.04 Subsystem
  • 3. Nvidia Driver

Each of these are required to set up the miner.

1. Proper OS Build:

πŸ“˜

NOTE

This application is compatible with Windows 11, but early versions of this App will perform better on Windows 10. This documentation will update as more support is added for different OS versions.

The Windows Insider Program (WIP) allows for the download of Release Preview Channel OS builds. The one we need is anything higher than 20262 Follow the instructions here to join the WIP and register or sign in to ensure you are able to upgrade to the right OS Build:

Once signed in, head to this page to download the 21354 OS build.

[Head to this page](https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windowsinsiderpreviewiso?rfs=1) and then select a preview build[Head to this page](https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windowsinsiderpreviewiso?rfs=1) and then select a preview build

Head to this page and then select a preview build

Download the OS file, run the .exe file, and install by clicking the setup file in the file explorer.

Once you update your Windows machine, your miner may require a restart. You can confirm you have properly updated to the correct build by heading to Settings>System>About:

2. Ubuntu Setup:
The WIP also grants you access to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), which is necessary in order to properly interact with our Ubuntu instance. After you have completed the first requirement of getting on the proper OS build, open Powershell as an administrator and run this command:

wsl --install -d Ubuntu-18.04

πŸ“˜

NOTE:

If you encounter an error that says" Error WSL 2 requires an update to its kernel component.", simply download the latest WSL2 kernel from this link: https://wslstorestorage.blob.core.windows.net/wslblob/wsl_update_x64.msi
Once installed you can continue with the rest of this guide.

You will need to create an Ubuntu username and password for your local build.

3. Nvidia Driver
The final requirement is to download and install the latest Nvidia driver from the Nvidia Developer Program. This specific driver will enable the CUDA support for WSL You can find the download link here: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda/wsl/download

πŸ“˜

NOTE:

You will need to register with Nvidia's Developer Program in order to download and install the CUDA driver. Overline has no relationship with Nvidia or its affiliates and cannot access any of the information you choose to use in your registration.

Once installed, you will need to restart your computer.

After that, reopen the application and you can start to use the One Click Miner!

QUICK START

As the name implies, starting the miner is as easy as clicking one button! Enter your miner address into the Overline (OL) Wallet field as shown below, then click the Start button. That's it!

After clicking "Start", your miner will be automatically provisioned, not only downloading the latest docker build, but also downloading and importing the latest snapshot of the Overline multichain. The status will read Bootstrapping during this process (may take a while), then once the miner is ready, that status will switch to Running. At which point you are officially mining with your GPU using the One Click Miner!

OCM LAYOUT OVERVIEW

-Version: The version number at the top right hand of the window will show you which OCM you are running. If there is a new version of the OCM released, you will received a yellow notification bar at the top of your window with a link to download the latest version.

-Overline (OL) Wallet: This is the OL public address you want to use to send your mining rewards to. If you do not have an address feel free to create one on the Interchange.

-Start/Stop Buttons: The Start button, on first click, will update the latest Docker image and download the latest multichain snapshot. Clicking Stop will stop the miner. If you click Start again and your miner has already been bootstrapped, it will not download the latest multichain snapshot, it will only check for and download a newer docker image before it starts your miner again.

-Miner Status: There are three statuses: Not running, Bootstrapping, and Running.
Not running means your miner has been turned off or has yet to be turned on. Bootstrapping occurs when your miner is being run for the first time or when you reload the latest snapshot. This process will take a little while, but is necessary for initializing your miner. Running means your miner is actively syncing / mining the Overline Multichain.

-Reload Miner: This button will reload the latest snapshot for your miner. The use case for this is if you haven't run your miner in a while and want to speed up the process. Remember, the Start button will download the latest snapshot only the first time you run the OCM.

-EMB / OL Balance: These are live balances of EMB and OL pulled from the Overline (OL) Wallet.

-Logs: The logs section is what you normally would see i you were running the miner in Command Prompt or Terminal. You can turn off Auto-Refresh logs if you want to read some of the logs without it continue to scroll.
