I suggest using simple instead forking as start-up type and not starting xmrig in the background:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/xmrig -c %i.conf

The advantage is that the output can be easily viewed using sudo journalctl -u xmrig@xmrig.service. Otherwise you don't really know what it is doing.

@matheusmoreira Not sure that's something that should be part of the default service file. Customizations should be in your /etc/systemd/system, which you can easily initiate by doing systemctl edit --full xmrig.service

It's possible to use cgroups to limit the CPU usage of the miner. Adding the following lines to xmrig.service will accomplish this:


On my computer, this causes the miner to use 50% of each CPU core.

It is also possible to change these properties on a service that's already running:

systemctl set-property xmrig@xmrig CPUQuota=80%

XMRig will only be able to apply CPU MSR modifications if it's running as root. The following changes to xmrig.service accomplish this:


I'm not sure if there's a better way. Would be nice if it could apply these modifications without full root privileges.

Any plans to update this?

@TheGoliath, would you be able to add a:

provides=('xmrig-donateless' 'xmrig')

like from so that the xmrig-cuda package will accept your package as satisfying the xmrig dependency for building the cuda plugin?

Thank you for the consideration! o7

Hey, please notice that xmrig has added a minimum donate level:

constexpr const int kDefaultDonateLevel = 5;
constexpr const int kMinimumDonateLevel = 1;

@ryant0000 I suggest you make this a git package in order to have less maintainership burden.

Apologies for not keeping this package up to date, if someone else wants ownership let me know. I've updated it to be current as of today.

Can you change sha256sum of v2.14.1.tar.gz file? It has this sha256sum: 644168116cd76747c9e1358113598dd039cfac8fccd2b54f84b9d40a9b075c2b

Thanks - works fine. Even on a raspberry pi!
