Release notes:

This version splits the 'config' file into "config" and "poolconf".

Thanks for the heads up. The difference was line 6 in xmrstack/version.cpp. The change is so minor, the author(s) probably decided it's not worth doing a new release.

Just a heads up. Couldn't finish the installation because the sha256 verification wouldn't pass. The current sha256 for is 8be57a0b9712d854859dc846efdae532c073b8d1767d969ef92ae81d519ddc12 download and check yourself. On the PKGBUILD file, 'sha256sums' line I changed e064478a559a2153703e0889032c343c1c108e939d36c5d687474b92fb4d8ddd to 8be57a0b9712d854859dc846efdae532c073b8d1767d969ef92ae81d519ddc12 and the installation completed.

Yes it works!

The problem was because I have a config.txt in my home dir. And when xmr-stak is called in my home dir, it automatically begins complaining about the existing configs instead of asking those questions.

If you run the miner without configuration, it will ask you questions
and then generate config files - one for the CPU and one for the pool +
some other options. You can edit them further and then start the miner
like this:

xmr-stak --noAMD --noNVIDIA --cpu ~/cpu.json --config ~/xmr.json

Only the pool configuration is a bit different.

Here are two simple samples:

Thanks for the package

Do you have an example of configuration file? The entries of the config seem to be pretty different with the one in the repo

This is the unified "xmr-stak". The PKGBUILD, as configured, builds only
the CPU miner for monero without SSL and the HTTP server and disables
the default donation. If you want more features - just flip the
corresponding cmake option from OFF to ON and add the necessary package
as a dependency:

If you want to donate to the developers - comment-out the prepare()
step, or you can directly send donations as it is described here:

The necessary configuration will be created on first run.

You can raise the number of huge memory pages and the limit on the
amount of memory the user can pin like this:

sudo echo 'DefaultLimitMEMLOCK=2G:2G' | sudo tee -a /etc/systemd/system.conf
sudo echo 'vm.nr_hugepages = 128' | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/xmr.conf
sudo systemctl restart systemd-sysctl.service
