1  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: New Apollo user has messed up the miner already.... on: October 15, 2022, 09:02:54 AM
I think I need to start with some easier questions.

Is it normal for the Apollo BTC to run its fan at full speed after shutting down?
Any way to fix that? Or what am I doing wrong?
I have no idea what you're doing here and it seems you aren't either.

IF the miner is connected to the internet and mining, you are online. My educated guess is that you fucked up your VPN config. It's also highly likely that your pool info isn't valid. That's why the miner isn't working in your other tries.

Do us a favor and
0) Reflash with the factory image
1) actually read the manual
2) connect to the Apollo via ethernet
3) configure the mining pool settings
4) wait for the miner to start mining
5) OPTIONAL: Start tinkering with the device once everything works.
6) Check if the node sync works

I did a bunch of things, like install a VPN and a system monitor and also clicked on 'Software Update' which downloaded and installed about 250MB of updates. Now it is running Armbian 22.08.4 Focal.
Not sure if installing the 250 MB was the best idea. A shitload of things could be installed now that interfere with the miner.

You also didn't mention what settings (mode, fan settings) you are running the miner with.

If this fine piece of internet forum software history would allow me to do that while on mobile, all pics would have been perfectly sized 😂

Thanks again for the help. I sent an email to bitshopper and will ping @jstefanop also with more details. 👍🙏

If people are interested I can sent the 3D-file for the 90-120mm adapter.
Adapter file would be appreciated! As others suggested, you can upload on Thingiverse or Printables. If you get enough downloads on the latter page, you will get free filament, too. Wink

Fyi, now with 1 merit you can become Jr. Member and post images. Just the typo is preventing your image to show up. Wink

I can see that ttyACM0 IS NOT there. All I get is this short message in dmesg after plugging it in:

Code:
[ 419.698180] usb 1-1-port4: connect-debounce failed

All command were entered as root. Any ideas?
Okay, that's odd. What do you get with this command? Does it show up?
Code:
ls /dev/tty*

Again, do verify that power connectors to the board (2x 6-pin) and USB are all good. There were users in the past with (semi-)broken-off microUSB connectors.
I believe there's no flimsier connector than microUSB; its surface-mounted nature means it is fairly easy to rip.
It seems the device isn't picked up at all besides from the odd usb output messages.



The tty device isn't there either. I created a few close-ups of the board and connectors. Something that seems to stand out vs the full node Apollo is the blinking VD5+ led here:



Everything else looks fine imho.

Some more pics here: https://imgur.com/a/ZUhZdGh

I'm slowly running out of ideas here ...

Is it picked up by your PC or laptop? That would have been my first troubleshooting step. Grin
Figure out whether it's a problem with the hashboard / standard unit or the controller / full unit.
I would recommend the https://kano.is/ solo pool by kano. Not sure where solo mining sits on jstefanop's roadmap!
It's a brand new batch 1 device that I unboxed a few days ago. Setting up a dedicated rpi zero for testing will be the next step that weekend. That's way more effort to setup compared to the full node extension, that's why I didn't do it as first thing
Oh don't worry, you can also test the hashboard with any other PC! Doesn't have to be a Raspberry Pi and not even a Linux PC.
It can just be your daily driver, simply to quickly verify the hashboard is fine.

Hello, now thatís itís getting cooler outside Iím going to turn the apollos (BTC and LTC) back on. This time Iím thinking of solo mining. Is direct solo mining still planned for BTC? Anyone doing it - is CK pool the best?
Thank you!

No worries and thank you for the reply!

I am a linux power user and know my way around the command line way better than any windows gui ;-)

I have a brand new batch 1 standard unit that isn't picked up by my full package unit at all. The red front led is blinking and turning solid red after a short while. The standard unit hash board isn't visible in the UI

What I tried already past weekend:
  • Flashed a new OS image to a new SD card
  • tested the sdcard with https://fight-flash-fraud.readthedocs.io/en/latest/usage.html
  • Swap USB cables and ports multiple times
  • Restart full unit and standard unit in different orders with wait times from minutes to hours in between
  • Swap & replace power supply. I tried both devices on one (750W) power supply and both on a separate, dedicated power supply

The output of armbianmonitor -u for my full package unit can be found at http://ix.io/4cfd

What else can I do to troubleshoot the function of the device on the hardware / software side?

I'll take two, random #. Not sure if we should send right away or when you say so.

Can you clarify? Thank you ;-)

Hi ! i hope you're fine !

Thank you  for the trust and support ! no need confirmation  Grin all message posted before the "sold out" post is confirmed and add to order list  Smiley
Ok, perfect. I just wanted to check if there's a "go" command before paying. Sent the BTC already, see DM ;-)

Thanks for your work, looks great!

I was looking to the 2 options for Staking PIVX. a. hold PIVX coins in a Staking wallet or b. run a Masternode where you stake 10K PIVX.

My expectation is that with option A, the staked coins are pooled to a Masternode. I don't see anywhere in the documentation where this configuration mapping a wallet to a masternode occurs. Is this not how the coins in Staked wallets get deployed?
Staking and masternodes are a completely different things. No masternode is deployed automatically, you have to install PIVX on daemon mode on a dedicated system. After that, you can create a masternode config on your local wallet and activate the remote masternode by linking the 10k PIVX transaction in the config file and starting it.

The process looks more complicated than it is:
https://pivxmasternode.org/2017/03/08/step-step-guide-setting-masternode/

I recommend you join the TG or discord for hands-on support.

Binance addition had no proper impact on price.. ?  Undecided

Are you drunk during the day? It had and will again in the future.

Completely independent from Bittrex now and additional pairs are always a good thing. PIVX/ETH /PIVX/BNB will soon catch up with PIVX/KRW.

Step 1: Reply here with your computer/phone OS version + browser to mine, also let us know what you think of Hadron!  Alpha miners will keep all coins earned. Basic computer details like CPU, RAM, GPU are helpful.
I'd like to participate in the first testing stages
