XMR-STAK-RX v1.0.1 — RandomX (Monero XMR)
XMR-STAK-RX v1.0.1 — RandomX (Monero XMR) — This release only supports RandomX variants. This is the first bug fix release for xmr-stak-rx. There is no development fee of any kind.
November 30, Monero (XMR) will work hard on block 1978433 to switch to a new algorithm. The upcoming fork will change the current CryptoNight R mining algorithm to the new Random X PoW algorithm.
There are already several miners mining coins using the RandomX algorithm, one of which XMR-STAK-RX.
The developers of the XMR-STAK program released the initial version to support the RandomX algorithm – the xmr-stak-rx program. In the new version there is no commission to developers, it will probably be added later. This release only supports various variants of the RandomX algorithm.
For AMD GPUs Linux requires an AMD driver, ROCm is not supported. Graphic NVIDIA processors require CUDA 9.0 or later. Minimum required the amount of main memory on the GPU and / or CPU is ~ 3GiB.
- Correct authors of RandomX mining code
- fix hwloc warning
- fix ignored tls on first start
- NVIDIA: fix auto adjustment
- fix miner benchmark mode
How to run RandomX mining?
- Download and unzip precompiled binary (.EXE) files to a new folder
- Change the currency parameter in pools.txt to “currency”: “randomx”, example pool configuration
- Run xmr-stak-rx via bat file
You can run the program through the bat file too:
Example batch file settings:
xmr-stak-rx.exe -o xmr-eu.dwarfpool.com:8050 -u 44tLjmXrQNrWJ5NBsEj2R77ZBEgDa3fEe9GLpSf2FRmhexPvfYDUAB7EXX1Hdb3aMQ9FLqdJ56yaAhiXoRsceGJCRS3Jxkn.5d3c802ee0f8e12e4eb9792722b7816a42178aa29ef7477c138ddb940c55648d.rig1 -p x --noCPU pause
If you do not want to mine Monero / Random X after forking on video cards, run xmr-stak-rx once before the fork and let the miner create amd.txt and / or nvidia.txt configurations. Edit both files and set “gpu_threads_conf”:  to disable the video cards and leave only the processor.
If the application does not start properly, make sure the Visual Studio libraries are installed. You can download them from^(
