Hi Luke
Is possible for a micro connected on free pin of mcp2210 read bfgminer information that appeare on screen?
Thanks
What?

If you ran cgminer, ensure /dev/ttyUSB0 actually exists - rebooting usually works.
Otherwise, please pastebin the output from:
Code:
bfgminer -S rockminer:all -d? -D
Curiouser and curiouser. It seems like it knows rockminer devices are there but doesn't detect them as as devices?

http://pastebin.com/E50PvhGw
Looks more like a power issue to me.

I might have other issues going on though because bfgminer also crashed thusly when I tried to launch it again.

Code:
/opt/minepeon/bin/bfgminer: symbol lookup error: /opt/minepeon/bin/bfgminer: undefined symbol: blkmk_append_coinbase_safe2

Maybe I screwed something up when compiling it. I'll try again when I get home troubleshooting through SSH makes me antsy.
I'm not sure how MinePeon sets up libblkmaker, but you can probably compile using --with-system-libblkmaker to use its version.

BFGMiner 4.2 released with ROCKMINER R-BOX support. Smiley

+1

same commands as cgminer?
No, BFGMiner has a standard interface for all drivers. So something like:
Code:
bfgminer -S rockminer:all --set rockminer:clock=290

Edit: Also note that if you were using cgminer, you had to use Zadig, which breaks the official drivers. You will need to undo this (and restore the original driver) before BFGMiner will work.

Has anyone gotten this working properly on Raspberry pi? -S rockminer:all doesn't work, going into device manager and saying "rockminer:/dev/ttyUSB0" doesn't work either.
If you ran cgminer, ensure /dev/ttyUSB0 actually exists - rebooting usually works.
Otherwise, please pastebin the output from:
Code:
bfgminer -S rockminer:all -d? -D

Got 4.2.0 compiled and working on Rasberry Pi (Arch/Minepeon)

it wasn't able to detect the R-BOX's though. Is this a thing where I have to program the chips on the miners to identify themselves properly?
R-BOXs so far have shipped with the CP2102 EEPROM unprogrammed, same problem as the Block Erupters had.
You can manually probe them with -S of course, or use cp210x-program to configure them.
I made a template EEPROM firmware for them: http://luke.dashjr.org/tmp/code/eeprom-content.RBOX.hex
Use it like: ./cp210x-program -w -F eeprom-content.RBOX.hex --set-product-string='R-BOX miner' --set-serial-number=somethingunique

409  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Linux mining distro for the Raspberry PI - MinePeon on: June 10, 2014, 08:26:04 PM
whats the maximum hashrate a Raspberry Pi can handle? I'm running 8 Chilis (30GHash each) and the whole things feels quite sluggish - i am using a Raspberry Pi 256 Model B version. is it worth overclocking or adding additional cooling?
Depends on the devices.
Low-overhead drivers: antminer, bifury, bigpic, bitforce, cairnsmore, dualminer, erupter, getwork, hashfast, icarus, rockminer, twinfury, stratum
High-overhead drivers: bfsb, bfx, littlefury, metabank, nanofury, x6500

Note that some devices, even if low-overhead, may have hardware issues with RPi's broken USB bus, though...
410  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: ROCKMINER ASIC miner official thread on: June 10, 2014, 06:59:05 AM
rockxie,

can you take a look at this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=250326.0

could you overwrite the generic values with RockMiner and RBOX/RXBOX, so that driver handling can be more precise?

Some people are having issues with the whole driver replacement step.

Also, there would be no way to distinguish rbox vs rxbox on a system in device manager etc...

Luke-Jr can probably help with answering a question you might have regarding this.
FWIW, this is basically the finishing touch needed to release BFGMiner 4.2 with RockMiner support:
What should/will the USB Product string descriptor read?
Maybe "R-BOX miner 32G", "RX-BOX miner 1.2T", etc?

Is there any plans in the future to open up the ability to manually choose a minimum difficulty/worksize settings?
I don't think so, there's not really a valid use case for this.
Mainline Eloipool already does support miners specifying a requested difficulty, and that might make it onto Eligius eventually.
412  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Open Letter to Luke-JR About Alt-Coin Attacks on: June 10, 2014, 03:16:12 AM
Luke-Jr, there are many current altcoins deserving of the same fate.
Great, have fun. I don't have time for scammers and their nonsense.
413  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: The Open Source Block Erupter Project on: June 09, 2014, 02:32:12 AM
Anyone interested in designing a Cube Block Erupter retro-fit?
now we're talking!!!  there's a large market for this and the earlier blades too, since the power boards are out there.
if people could buy replacement blades for either platform, they would.  and if they could replace one at a time that would be phenomenal as well.
Slightly related to this, is there perhaps the possibility of open sourcing some or all of the Cube's information?
It would be nice for someone to try to debug the TCP stack and figure out how to make it work correctly Wink

Hi,Luke. are there any api docs about Eloipool?  Grin
There's no API, so no.

Hopefully there are enough non-idiots mining still who know to ignore garbage like this.
416  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: The Open Source Block Erupter Project on: June 08, 2014, 07:26:56 PM
Any chance the chips might be open source too? Wink
Yes. But there are no written plans in the near term yet.

Also it's much harder than making a piece of software open source, because the whole flow to generate GDS has tons of manual operations and very fab and technology node specific.
Please don't do this in the near future Cheesy
Why not? Open source mining chips benefit the community the best, I think? Or am I missing something?

Well for sha256 mining bfgminer v3.10.2 likes me more   Smiley
Please bisect any problems you have, as 3.10 won't be maintained forever... Wink

I am going to be getting two 5chip Gridseed Dualminer Scrypt + SHA256 soon &
I hope  BFGMiner v4.1.0 works well with it. I really don't want to use the cgminer fork, blah.
SHA2 is not supported for these, only scrypt.

yo Luke-Jr
I just moved over to BFGMiner v4.1.0 & it keeps telling me btcguild.com is dead when I know its not
I have restarted it over & over & sometime it will work but for only like 1min & then it comes back with pool dead.
It does work on trc.royalminingco.com & I have been on there all day.

I don't know whats going on but bfgminer-3.10.0 did not do this. & I may have to move back to it or try 4.0.0 or 3.10.2 or 3.10.1

Try adding #notls to the BTCGuild URI.
Unfortunately, they just leave the connection open and silent when BFGMiner attempts to negotiate TLS (if they errored or disconnected, it'd immediately retry).
Without #notls to disable TLS, it should still timeout after a minute (but this needs to happen again after the reconnect...)

I added it
"url" : "stratum+tcp://stratum.btcguild.com:3333#notls",
not sure if that's where I'm to put it
but it did work & I was getting work from the pool but
then I started getting this
"Rejected untracked stratum share from pool 0"
the pool Diff was stuck at 1 & btcguild does not use 1.
this is just not working for btcguild.
I will just have to roll back   Sad

but thanks for your time & help Luke-Jr.
Hrm, strange. Can you try bisecting it?
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=626361.msg6964942#msg6964942

ok I did it, I'm not sure what bisecting is...
Am I to download the "Builds"??
if yes there for windows I use Gentoo Linux.

In that case, please see http://git-scm.com/book/en/Git-Tools-Debugging-with-Git#Binary-Search
