1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Running cgminer with NewPac and bfgminer with MoonLander2 on same Pi? on: April 16, 2019, 10:28:46 PM
Has anyone had success running instances of bfgminer and cgminer simultaneously on a raspberry pi?

I have a couple moonlander2 miners on a gekkoscience hub that run great with bfgminer.

I can also run a couple NewPacs on a hub without a problem using cgminer.

However when I try to run both the bfgminer throws an "input/output" error.  (cgminer continues to run fine)

Raspberry pi is a model 3 b+ running raspian stretch 9.8

Both bfgminer and cgminer are the latest version.  (CG miner is not the auto-tune beta version)

Any help would be appreciated, or confirmation it can't be done and I'll just pick up another pi... Grin

Putting the whole path in worked for me, but I had to work with a different autostart file to get everything to run.

Try this:

open a terminal

cd .config/lxsession/LXDE-pi
nano autostart

Then add

@/usr/bin/lxterminal --geometry=90x35 -e /home/pi/cgminer/cgminer

to the last line.   Save and reboot.

Apparently I'm limited to 2 PMs a day.
If you could confirm which address you want payment sent to via PM I'll get it sent out.

In connection with this, I would like to ask some n00b questions.
1st. What version of the Raspbian should I use?
2nd. Where do you save the
3rd. How can you make the run at startup?
4th. How do you supervise your PI's?

1. I'm currently running Raspian Stretch 9.8 with no issues.

2. You will likely want to save the file in the same folder as cgminer.

Another way to approach the issue, is  to run cgminer with the initial command line arguments, then use "s" > "w" ("Y" if asked to confirm overwrite) to write a config file.

Open another command prompt and (assuming you have a default instalation) navigate to and edit the config file with:

sudo su
cd /home/pi/.cgminer
nano cgminer.conf

You can now edit the cgminer config file.

Once you have it edited as desired, exit and save the cgminer.conf file with ctrl+x.

Now you can restart cgminer with "./cgminer" in the original window that cgminer was running in, and it will run with the updated config file settings. If you are switching settings often (maybe manually trying to hone in on a frequency) just leave the second command prompt window open so you can use one window for running cgminer and one for editing cgminer.conf.

3. I'll defer to someone else on this one, I'm just learning linux... (edit: This tutorial may have what you want for a cgminer auto run at start:

4. For remote access I use VNC viewer.  You do have to sign up for a free account, but it's an easy process to get up and running.

Hope that helps a bit.

I wish 419mining was within walking distance too.  My wallet is happy they aren't.

I picked up a NewPac to play with so my son could see what mining bitcoins was all about.  
We received a NewPac yesterday and had a seamless Raspberry Pi install thanks to the directions on this thread.
It's fun to play with overclocking, so I've been pushing it a bit without a powered hub.  
The NewPac has been running great on the pi @225MHz and averaging just over 50 GH/sec.  250MHz causes immediate zombie (guessing power limit is reached?)
Small 40mm USB fan for active cooling and the heatsink is barely room temperature.  

40mm USB fan link:

Setup with temporary pi base:

Now I have to talk myself out of ordering a hub and a bunch more NewPacs!

Mostly it gives me something to do while I'm sitting around at work. Grin

Good motivation to get out of newbie jail!
TIII IIII III IIIIME is on myyyyy side...yes it is...

oh it's not.

You might as well bump your post count too dfib, why did you become interested in Bitcoin?

The idea of decentralized currency intrigued me, "mining" peaked my interest, and I'm trying to wrap my head around the sheer number of altcoins.

Doubtful, Litecoin has been keeping a pretty steady ratio to Bitcoin, if anything I expect it to decrease with the influx of miners running from the ASICs. That's why I am mining ATM, not buying.

Wouldn't the increase in popularity cause an increase in price?

4 hours is only mildly annoying when you realize the last month+ of lurking would have one well past the hurdle if one had registered right off the bat.
