Description Patrick McMunn 2021-02-24 05:51:42 UTC
Although xmrig has an xml file that can be edited to configure the program, command line flags are often simpler to configure the desired behavior. Please make the port respect xmrig_flags from /etc/make.conf.

For my own use, I have been editing /usr/local/etc/rc.d/xmrig to accomplish this behavior, but it's tedious to redo with every update to xmrig since it's updated so frequently. I've been simply changing the line

command_args="-f ${procname} --config=${xmrig_conf}"


command_args="-f ${procname} --config=${xmrig_conf} ${xmrig_flags}"

Please incorporate this change to the port.

This port relies heavily on CPU optimizations. Without it it's basically useless.
Comment 2 Patrick McMunn 2021-02-24 05:56:58 UTC
I meant from /etc/rc.conf -- not /etc/make.conf. In other words, runtime arguments -- not CPU optimizations during compilation.
Comment 3 Emanuel Haupt freebsd_committer 2021-02-24 06:06:49 UTC
Ah, that makes sense.
