Ensuring smooth operation of your mining software involves automatic processes and manual interventions when necessary. Here's how you can handle typical issues that might arise during mining:

Reconnection Handling

  • Automatic Reconnection: The miner software is designed to automatically reconnect if any disconnections occur. This ensures minimal interruption in your mining activities.

Client Updates

  • Automatic Updates: Your miner software will update itself automatically after the current mining run completes. This is to ensure that you always operate with the latest features and fixes.

  • Manual Update Procedure:

    • If the automatic update fails, you may need to update the software manually. First, terminate the ongoing training process.

    • Run the following commands in your terminal:

      git pull
      make install
