Regarding MinePeon with USB miners:

Is there any limit of USB devices that it will auto-detect (other than the 127 standard USB limit)?

When removing or adding new USB miners do you need to do anything over than reboot?  (ie will it automatically detect that devices were added or removed and start using all available devices)

Not sure on the limit, but regarding hot plugging I have shuffled around 22 between 3 10 port hubs ( 1 hub is a little temperamental) and had no issues at all, no need for a reboot.

Regarding the limit, am waiting on coupons for another 25, that will push me close to 50 so were see how it goes. Personally after that I would be getting a second PI for redundancy, Pi are cheap  Wink

southerngentuk, you can send up to 6 images to LCD's internal memory and pre-program the display to enter into "picture frame mode", when idle for more than x minutes, with the "LCD Sys Info - Images Loader.exe" program that comes with it. If the RPI stops communicating with the LCD, it then knows what to do...

Excellent, I had read something about that but it didn't sink in at the time. I'll put it on my to do list, It seems to take me along time to do anything on linux but I am determined to get a handle on it.

Edit: ok the loader ext.. is windows so easy for me..Done Thanx ct1aic

Notes on the dispay : If LSDStats is killed in anyway e.g. Pi reset, It sits there with the last stats displayed. Looks pretty but not very helpful. Would be better if it would just go blank or display an error. I don't think it is possible to get around this due to the way it works. Otherwise its pretty cool...
I use -d 2 and thus the clock ticks over every 2 or 3 seconds so I know it's working Smiley

There is no problem hitting the API every 2 seconds (I have a bunch of scripts that hit each of my cgminers every 2 seconds)

As for what's on the screen if it stops ... well that's simply what was last on the screen - yes.
If it gets an error talking to the API, cardcomm has it display a red message that's pretty obvious Smiley
If the python itself crashes, well, yeah you'll see on the screen what was last put there
Putting a message up or blanking would be pointless, rather whatever was trying to do that should instead restart the python.

Thanx Kano, I'll change the refresh rate and I should be able to get the python script to run on reboot. Please don't tell me how, am gonna figure it out, I will get use to this linux stuff soon enough.  Grin

I'm doing a git pull every day.

That may be your issue, that code is a bit buggy at the moment as I am getting ready for a release this weekend.  

Neil

Not to forget, never change a running system!

maybe cardcomm can update his install guide to shut the system down first...am not sure how to do this yet.

thinking about it now, my addresses were replaced with the donation ones also on the status page.
826  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Linux mining distro for the Raspberry PI - MinePeon on: August 06, 2013, 11:24:59 PM
Neil:

For the second consecutive day, at midnight, my pools are replaced by the 3 donation pools and stay there until I force mine @ the pools page. I have donation disabled for several days.

I'm doing a git pull every day.
I think this is the same issue, off memory I think under the pools table it said 'cgminer failed to restart'

I could not force mine and had to reboot.

EDIT: Send any coins to cardcomm`s  address as donation for lcd work please.
827  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Linux mining distro for the Raspberry PI - MinePeon on: August 06, 2013, 10:42:38 PM
Ok, in the process of installing the LCD mod am guessing most of the new minepeon stuff was updated..

CGMiner failed to restart after Donation and I think you just may have got about 8 hrs @ 7.3G...

I have been getting strange issues in putty (windoze) where it returns something like its a read-only system on occasions.

Am using cheap SD Cards so will be of to the shop today to get a better one.

Neil is there a log file I should be looking at to diagnose?

Edit : Cardcomm - I didn't think to check the display.. Is there a line in the code to display error if CGMiner fails to restart. Would be nice  Grin

This was always the issue i had with TH, they didnt seem to be making a mark up on chips, costs on boards are tight with little margin, I do hope it works out but see little room for any discount..
829  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Linux mining distro for the Raspberry PI - MinePeon on: August 06, 2013, 08:11:52 AM
Short answer is start a new screen session

Code:
screen -S display

Then run it and CTRL+A D

screen -S {name of new screen}

This works  Cheesy I had been watching it for 1/2 hr, tried to check the git for refresh rate but git was down. Just came back here and the answer is waiting for me........ Roll Eyes

If I don't add modules in my hosted Large it will be pretty much useless in 1-2 months. I won't be able to afford even the hosting expenses let alone break even...
I haven't done the figures (too scared ) but I think this is going to be a huge problem for people in the near future. Hosting eating away at your ROI and the dilemma of what to do when it goes negative. You know the minute you pull out and sell it (if your overseas and it uneconomical to ship back to you) then BTC will double  Sad .

Didnt terrahash tell us he ordered everything and had everything he needed to mass produce our units weeks ago (less the Avalon chips)?
Now we find out he didnt even have the PCB boards to populate? And still doesnt have them on hand?

And until the revisions are tested then he shouldn't, It would be best to wait for BKK's final tests on the revision before ordering them (its only a few days away).

Outside of this I think he has all his ducks in a row. Credit where its due, Its all minor details now until Avalon deliver, and there not answering the phone so no one can do anything but wait.

Thank you Terra for your support of BKKCoins

I think .05 is fine risk/time/packaging/postage  you might even say it too cheap.

Always hurts for the international buyers with the high cost of fedex thou. ( although its great service )

Would be great if Canary could throw us a bone.  (maybe allow us to top up our promo`s with 0.5 units to make package upto 14 units  Wink )

If possible please comment so I can get coins ready..

Open notepad:

1.Go to your "receive coins" button,click it,copy & paste that addy in notepad.This is YOUR wallet addy,any BTC sent to it will end up in your wallet & no one else's.
I only have one receive addy,if you have more than one...........I don't think it matters,just pick one.Someone correct me if I'm wrong

2.Now,go to "transactions" button,click it, find the transaction you want to sign,right click on it & click on "show details".Copy & paste the "Transaction ID" in notepad.

3.Your ready to sign a message,go to "file",upper left corner,click it & click "sign message".

4.Copy & paste YOUR wallet addy in line 1.........In the body copy & paste the "Transaction ID".Put your info in there too,what the BTC was sent for & how much (EXACT amount),name,shipping address,etc...

5.Click "sign message" on the bottom,it will generate a unique ID #.Now copy & paste the info from all 3 sections in an email or PM,keep them seperate in the email (don't just bunch em together) & volia!!!!

You just signed a message  Grin

point 1.. This worked for me the first time, then I looked an ass Grin , always double check the blockchain after sending a transaction to confirm your address before signing an message, It wasted so much time for group buys chasing payments..


if you think you have got it,  you can do this in reverse.  VERIFY A MESSAGE

Address : 1DononEbNw8traGfgQpvkV99tRPkat8H7t

start message-----------
This is the message southerngent signed.
end message------------

Signature : HCjjSUOpvoK7HkSvwqc687hHiLwfw8GEaV2wmNuAg8ErQ6Mb58JAhFtuyC9OonjUm9nBs5kbilaaxWc 8Nff4c7Y=

Try it.. then when you have signed a message you can verify it. Only you can sign a message with your address but anyone can verify it..



What does any of this have to do with Terrahash??
Your right, Nothing,Its just helping people out, off topic i know... However there`s nothing else going on here for a longgg while so I think its ok  Wink

I've also had 2 successful group buys, and the most recent was probably the best service I've ever had from buying something online.

As MinePeon can send alert messages, as I see in last "beta" version. I tried that feature, with smtp.gmail.com:465 as SMTP server, but I think it would need also a "password" field, to use gmail as sending address.

Not everyone has a gmail account, everyone has an ISP though, just use their SMTP server.

Ahhh, thats how to do it...          lol@me
