Compile SGminer on Ubuntu Linux

This is the guide I used to install SGminer on Ubuntu Linux. I am using the Kalroth fork of cgminer 3.7.2 as it usually provides more khs than the standard cgminer.

Open up a terminal session or SSH and type these commands:

Sudo apt-get update

Sudo apt-get upgrade

git clone
(Place the ADL SDK files in cgminer-3.7.2-kalroth/ADL_SDK folder. These files are: adl_structures.h, adl_sdk.h, and adl_defines.h)
cd ~/cgminer-3.7.2-kalroth
CFLAGS=”-O2 -Wall -march=native” ./ –enable-scrypt –enable-opencl –with-header-path=/opt/intel/opencl-1.2-
That is is. Now just change your script and start mining.

grub menu timeout cgminer

Setting up a mining machine with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and sometimes during a reboot the machine will get stuck at the grub menu and you physically have to press a button on the keyboard to reboot. This is major issues if you are using a headless miner and do not have access to the machine. We want it to reboot and start mining with no downtime.

To do this, open up terminal and type: sudo nano /etc/default/grub
In this file, Add a line with this assignment: GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=N
Set N to the desired timeout in case of a previously failed boot.


Next type sudo update-grub

How To Find Amazon Items That Pay A High Commission

profitEverybody knows that the higher the item’s price is the higher the commission. Amazon’s Affiliate program has a tiered commission structure, and you want to promote the big ticket items to make the most possible income. Unfortunately finding those big ticket items may be a challenge for the average user. Also just because it is an expensive item, doesn’t mean it will actually sell.

The goal is to find items that pay a high commission and filter through those items to find the ones that are easy to sell. Here are the steps to find items that pay a high commission.

  1. Visit and open the full store directory
  2. Click on a category that you may be interested in promoting. For this example we will choose the “Automotive & Industrial” category.
  3. Lets click on the sub category “Labs & Scientific.”
  4. Next click on another sub category like “Scales & Balances.”
  5. Now we will want to move to the upper right corner and sort the items by “Price: High to Low.” You will now see all of the highest priced Scales * Balances.
  6. Lets go back to the main “Industrial & Scientific” Category. You will now see the most expensive items in that category. You can see that there is a Cyclone 4006 – Ultra High Pressure Hard Surface Cleaner, 40,000 psi water with Full Recovery that costs $514,968.00 and has two 5 star reviews, so you know this item has sold previously. At Amazon’s 4% tier, that would net you a $20,000 commission.
  7. This is just an example of how to find some products, but trying to actually sell this surface cleaner will be a challenge. You will want to go through some of the other categories until to find a good product that will be easy to promote and offer high commissions.

Now that you have an idea of where to find amazon products that offer a high commission, get to researching and take action now!
