I am very interested in Filecoin mining and abstractly (part of the dApp movement).
I am having trouble getting started following the Wiki directions.
First conceptually: I chose Ubuntu 22.214.171.124 LTS since Windows is not supported. (Most crypto miners I talk to use Windows.) I use Linux on a regular basis but not a power user or dev. My mining rig has AMD Ryzen 5 1600 CPU, 32 GB RAM, and 10 GB SSD disk for applications/OS and a 10 TB HDD for storage including Filecoin storage.
The default install is on my SDD with the Linux OS. I am having trouble getting the parameter files installed. Using the paramcache command I was able to begin the process, but it seems that it consumes most of my free space on SSD.
Am I correct in assuming I should store the parameter folder/files on my 10 TB disk? Should I install the entire Filecoin directory and application on the 10 TB disk? If so, can you provide guidance on configuration to do this considering that my OS is on a different partition?
