Remote Agent for Linux is based on the same concept as the Remote Agent application for Windows. It should be installed on each mining computer and is controlled by the Awesome Miner main application.
Remote Agent for Linux is an application that requires an existing Linux operating system to be used. For GPU mining, relevant GPU drivers must be installed. It's currently not a complete Linux based mining operating system. Remote Agent for Linux can however be installed on many of the existing Linux based mining operating systems or any other Ubuntu-based Linux distribution.
Mining software dependencies:
- CryptoDredge Miner: Requires package libc-ares2
- CpuMiner-Opt: Requires package: libcurl3
- Linux 64-bit distribution (e.g. Ubuntu). Only Intel and AMD x64 platforms are supported.
- For GPU mining, GPU drivers must be installed
- Required packages: bash, screen

3) Use Awesome Miner on Windows to connect to this Remote Agent instance. The Managed Host must configured for Linux support. Via the Options dialog, Managed Host section, a new host can be added where the option Remote Agent for Linux must be checked. Once the host is added, a Managed Miner or Managed Profit Miner can be created and be configured to use this host.
