Hi dego,

here we go, all it took was a full reboot

Code:
[2013-11-26 22:54:36] Started cgminer 3.5.0
 [2013-11-26 22:54:36] BTB0: Reset failed! not an Avalon? (0: c0 2a c3 b6)
 [2013-11-26 22:54:37] BTB 0 usb write error: **UNKNOWN**
 


Could you please post your cgminer.conf?

You should find it in ~/.cgminer/cgminer.conf

It could be that a certain usb bus is set in your config, so if cgminer starts it checks the bus that is set in your config and it will only find something if it has the same bus number...

Hi dego,

no cgminer.conf

Hi,

I have 8 boads in two stacks, first stack is hashing ok at 197 GHs.

BUT I have to connect it to the upper USB port of my RasPi, otherwise boards are not recognized, cgminer -n says it found no boards.

If I put a usb hub on the upper USB port of my RasPi no board is recognized, even if I connect a single board through its usb connector.



You have 2 stacks of 4 boards, each connected by CAN, right?
You have two USB cables running to the Pi, right?

What does Raspian or whatever Linux you use say if you type
Code:
lsusb
?

Hi dego,

yes, two stacks of four boards each.

My Pi is able to see them both only if I connect both to a powered usb hub and then I connect the powered usb hub to the upper usb port on the Pi.

If I connect each stack to a different port on the Pi only the stack connected to the upper port is seen and recognized by cgminer -n

Anyway, when both are connected, starting cgminer just throws usb write errors till the Pi freezes.

Here is cgminer -n when both are recognized

Code:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo ./cgminer/cgminer -n

How am I supposed to control two 4-boards stacks? with a RasPi every four boards?

What am I making wrong?

I'm using cgminer 3.5 and boards are recognized as BTB.

Any help truly appreciated!

 AntMiner is doing you a favor.  It is a next-gen device and knows better than to mine at Eligius and support Luke-Jrs shenanigans.

if you look at the chip's traces, there are two sets: 1 runs to the capacitors (or where capacitors were in rev1) and the other set runs to vias to another layer of the PCB. These have very small silver pads that pair them up, and i belive are responsible for the MISO commands and other chaining functions. if the small pairs of pads are shorted, the chip is no longer included in the chain

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=250249.1040

step 1: short the small jumper pads and see how it works
step 2: if problem persists, either remove the chip or cut the traces (preferably a little better than how some have done it on here lol)

i know there is more info elsewhere but cant find it offhand


Hi klondike_bar,

thanks, I'll try step 1 tomorrow and then I'll report back

BTW,

having some hardware way to isolate "broken" chips without having to cut traces on the board would be a good thing.

spiccioli

pretty sure it was demonstrated that shorting the jumpers by the faulty chip causes it to simply by skipped over the same was as cutting the traces would achieve *i think thats what i read*

Hi,

all of them or a particular couple?

hmmm .. somehow after plugin back one of my old h-boards ... one just stopped getting recoginzed.

I tried to use different slots without success and remarked that having other boards in subsequent slots in the same bank makes them also unrecognized.

I have no idear what happend I can't find any traces of something bad ... does any one can help or has an idear?

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/43738391/1.JPG

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/43738391/2.JPG


What can I check? Anyone?

I have something similar,

a new board, one without capacitors, all of a sudden is not recognized anymore.

I've moved it into nearly every slot, it is not recognized.

No burn signs, at a visual inspection board seems like all the others.

Any idea?

Thanks.

Actually, I'd like some comments from you...

- Would you like a USB miner or are you happy with standalone RasPi controlled unit?
- Do you feel modular design is important, or would you prefer a nice tidy box?
- What about form factor: free or rack?
- What dB level are you comfortable with?
- Internal custom PSU or ATX?


Ok, you asked for it:

- No USB, it makes no sense right now to have 2 GHs units, it is just a waste of time using them
- break even in BTC and so it HAS to have a reasonable cost
- power efficiency, in the end, if you don't live in very peculiar places on earth energy costs a lot!

Noise and form factor have very marginal value.

What I'd really like to have is a more robust systems.

A system which does not depend on board order or ambient temperature.

A more robust m-board, current ones have too much flaky connectors.

Price, price and price, or as I said earlier, break-even in BTC is a MUST.

As for the new H-boards (and M-boards?), could you please give us 24 hours advance notice before putting them up for sale? I'd hate to miss out if they all get bought in 15 minutes and I was offline. Or how about putting up a portion of the stock at a time, over a day or two, so everyone gets a good chance to buy?

You can ship to the US, right?

pretty good offer imho... but 25btc?  Roll Eyes no way unless xbtc drops to 100 usd...

Considering the price of Nov KnCs, Ill offer 14BTC

BTC exchange rate is at 440 USD at this time, so if you are ready to pay 25BTC at 100USD/1BTC for this BTSB you would like me to divide the price more than 4 times ? Sorry I won't sell for less than 25, this has nothing to do with BTC price in dollars, you buy in BTC and you'll get your ROI in BTC.

I see it at 580 USD at bitstamp right now.

Anyway, above 14-15 BTC there is a clear possibility to never break-even on them.

That said, at 15 BTC I'd buy it.

Even more so if you could add one of those chateau belvize boxes if they're of red wine like this http://www.chateaubelvize.com/?pge=produits&idx=19 Smiley

Hi spiccioli. The wine in the boxes is the same, year 2008, six magnums per box. Would be a pleasure to send you one with the stuff, but then we have to deal with transportation. How much would you add for it ? 

I'd say half a BTC could be a correct valuation (if I'm not missing something), but I fear that shipping such a box could cost a lot.

Let's see how it goes with your auction first and then we will surely find a way to deal with that box Smiley

Is the only way to notch your speed up by making a best.cnf file? Also whats unlcear to me is when I make that best cnf file what all should be in it? Example: 1   AIfDSo   53  <-- is that the only line you need for each chip or should it be everything that the .stat.log has minus the very bottom readout?

If the autotuner isn't giving you the results you expect, you can use best.cnf to turn it off (lowercase a) and manually set speeds. You don't need to put all the stuff from .stat.log into best.cnf, but it's not a problem either. It only reads the first 3 tab-separated columns and ignores the rest.

Here there is a good way to create a starting best.conf
