D4rkAng3l, in the listings you posted below I see the cgminer binary compiled in the cgminer directory and the minerd (cpuminer) binary compiled in the cpuminer directory.
When you build (compile) something it doesn't delete the source code-- it will all still remain there unmodified, except you will see additional object files (.o) from the compile process as well as the resulting binary.

To run those you need to specify the path to them, for instance ~/usb-miner/software/cgminer/cgminer or if you are already in the cgminer directory specify ./cgminer

If you wanted to install them elsewhere you could add --prefix=/opt/cgminer (for instance) to the ./configure line and then do a "make install" to have makefile create /opt/cgminer and install the binaries in there.

Hello to everybody,

I have 2 GridSeed and I am trying to install it on my RaspBerry (using RaspBian) following the instruction founded on this post but I am finding some problem.

I have download and build cgminer and cpuminer and it seems to me that this process gone ok (I had no error).

By ssh I done the following steps:

1) Enabled the root account:

sudo passwd root

2) ssh back in as root and change the associated paths and groups:

usermod -l miner pi
usermod -m -d /home/miner miner
groupmod -n miner pi

3) Builded cgminer:

git clone
cd usb-miner/software/cgminer
autoreconf -i
./configure --enable-gridseed

4) Builded cpuminer:

cd usb-miner/software/cpuminer

Now my doubt are: where these softwares are installed? in the same directory where I builded it or where? I am not so sure that I have correctly installed the software because I have the following situation:

Into the cgminer direcotry I can find the following files:

Another happy GAW customer here.  I've ordered (and received) 2 Gridseeds from them in the past and just completed an order for a Fury.
Very happy with the service (Amanda was great!) and looking forward to getting the Fury and included Zen Controller!

3  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: [GUIDE] GridSeed GC3355 5 Chip Setup/power/windows/linux/rpi by UnicornHasher on: May 13, 2014, 07:46:41 PM
2 gridseed questions related to scrypt only hashing:

1) What is the maximum people have clocked the 5 chip gridseeds up to with acceptable results?
I normally run mine at 900 (381K)  although they appear to run at 950 (402K/s) with few hardware errors (at least in my limited testing).
At 975 they do about 412/413K.
At 1000 they do 423K.

2) What is an "acceptable" amount of hardware errors?   1 a minute?  5? 10?

3) Is there a way with cgminer to specify a frequency for each specific gridseed without using a separate instance of cgminer?

[edit:  I see now with this version of cgminer you can specify per device speeds:, for example
--gridseed-options freq=888 --gridseed-freq 8D74488A4949=900,8D96227B5449=900,8D7357785355=875
I found this on an earlier post by Girhes ]

I'm using cgminer.

..just to prove I'm running a version of cgminer that supports the --dualminer-pll argument:

..under a windows VM using the official software from I also get around the same speeds.

5  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [ANN] Introduction to DualMiner USB (could mine both BTC and LTC) on: May 02, 2014, 06:28:46 PM
I tried one in a Windows VM and got the same speeds, again despite the frequency/pll setting.

These are dualminer2s and as a result don't have a switch to go to BTC mode so there shouldn't be any reason they are slow that I know of..

6  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [ANN] Introduction to DualMiner USB (could mine both BTC and LTC) on: May 02, 2014, 05:03:07 AM
What kind of hash rates are you getting on the Dual Miner 2s?   Mine are all 55-57k (sometimes spiking to 60K), for example:
DM 0:                | 55.59K/57.87Kh/s | A:59392 R:  0 HW:19 WU:0.1/m
DM 1:                | 55.59K/57.82Kh/s | A:60928 R:  0 HW:11 WU:0.1/m

Despite using the dualminer cgminer version and giving it the --dualminer-pll 850 options I am apparently unable to get the to run slower or faster, whether I specify 400 or 850, the resulting hashrate is the same.

Running this on Linux.   I wish the same version of cgminer that works on the gridseed would work on the dual miner2 as well...

7  Bitcoin / Alternative clients / Re: iOS: bring nativ wallet app to non-jailbreak iPhones (and iPads)? on: May 02, 2014, 04:51:41 AM
As already mentioned the Pheeva wallet does this and will also upload an encrypted copy of your wallet online as well, plus allow others to download their wallets, decrypt them, use them, and then "burn" them (i.e. delete them from your phone).

They use the enterprise/co-op model. 

8  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: [My Pool] Pool Server in a Box on: April 27, 2014, 09:35:28 PM
Is this still available somewhere?  I'd love a pool on a vm that I could play with.
I can host a torrent if required.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Gridseed Solo Farm Help!! on: April 27, 2014, 07:29:15 PM if only somebody made a customizable pool vm appliance you could download and run that'd also solve the problem..
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Gridseed Solo Farm Help!! on: April 25, 2014, 05:45:14 AM

Did you ever get an answer to this?  I solomine with a GPU rig without issue and tried today with a gridseed and some dualminer2s and have the same problem as you-- 0 accepts, 0 rejects yet it works fine with a gpu rig..

AllCrypt posted above that it's on Allcrypt now.
I believe I also saw it on Cryptoczar.
12  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: [GUIDE] GridSeed GC3355 5 Chip Setup/power/windows/linux/rpi by UnicornHasher on: April 25, 2014, 05:13:17 AM
I got 3 dualminer2 today as well as a Gridseed.  I am able to get them all up and running (using different versions of cgminer for each) without any problems-- at least when testing to wafflepool, scryptguild and clevermining.   
I was actually trying to solomine an altcoin directly to a wallet-- I've got a GPU box doing that just fine (host:8332) to the exact same wallet however when I point either the gridseed or the dualminers at the wallet it connects and appears to be hashing away just fine except I never get any accepts or rejects.  The hashrates the cgminers report are reasonable yet no accepts.   
 The only thing I can think of that is different between mining to a multipool and a local wallet is that the local wallet is using http (getwork I believe) rather than stratum.  cgminer shouldn't have an issue mining to a wallet-- after all I use an unmodified cgminer on my GPU box with no problems also using http.   Anybody have any ideas why this isn't working?

13  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: FINALLY! A simple bitcoin wallet for iOS, that works. I got the Pheeva! on: April 04, 2014, 01:30:57 PM
These guys are indeed legit and as mentioned presented at the Texas Bitcoin conference, see here:

In addition to making an IOS wallet they also have a free Chrome wallet (available in the Chrome app store IIRC).  They two cannot sync (as of yet) but I believe that is something they may consider.

I met these guys at TBC and talked to them quite a bit-- they are sincere guys who outside of this do a lot of good in their community as well (educating local KY government, schools, etc).

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][SSL][0%FEE] DOGECOIN POOL MINE! FAST-POOL.COM - ON CORRECT FORK! on: February 07, 2014, 07:34:31 PM
Not sure why my results from fast-pool are always much lower than the estimates I see on the "pool" page.
My rig does a solid 1220k/s (plus I have a few smaller miners also pointing there, nothing more than 50-100k total).
Right now for instance it shows 1227KH/s, on the pool pay is shows I should make around 8010 DOGE/Day.
Despite having the same speeds all day yesterday I only made 4323 DOGE.  The highest I've made so far in a day is 6215DOGE.  Even looking at my highest daily of 6215 that's still only 77% of of the estimated.   I understand that right now the speed of 1227K is only an estimation and is obviously high due to luck or whatever but it still seems that I am pulling in way less doge that I should be.

My wu is a little lower today since switching to the new 3002 stratum and is only at 89% of my hash rate-- yesterday it was 92-96%.
