401  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: BFGMiner 4.7.0: GBT+Strtm, RPC, Mac/Lnx/W64, Spondoolies SP10, Nicehash on: August 17, 2014, 02:43:16 AM
NEW VERSION 4.7.0, AUGUST 17 2014

Human readable changelog:
  • avalonmm: Guess sensible defaults when user does not specify clock/voltage.
  • minergate: New driver supporting the Spondoolies SP10.
  • Stratum: Support for mining.set_extranonce extension; put "#xnsub" at the end of the pool URI to enable.

Full changelog:
  • openwrt/multibuild: Avoid copying bitforce-firmware-flash, which is no longer included
  • AUTHORS: Simpler design, alphabetise lists
  • Remove obsolete SuSE packaging
  • Bugfix: test_hash: Fix Htarg calculation for exact binary divisions of diff 1
  • Fix target calculation from diff < 1.0 in test_hash()
  • avalonmm: Try to autodetect a sane default voltage and clock from MM version
  • avalonmm: Only poll one module at a time, so they don't try to talk over each other
  • avalonmm: Set baud rate for detection
  • Stratum: Ignore response from mining.extranonce.subscribe
  • Stratum: Implement mining.set_extranonce, and advertise support for it to pools with a #xnsub flag

  • Stratum: Avoid putting new targets on pool stratum_work until mining.notify is received for it
  • minergate: Flush during init
  • minergate: Flush ready-to-queue list
  • minergate: Avoid preparing new jobs to queue while we are pending a flush, since the flush would occur after queuing the new jobs

  • minergate: Report all temperatures individually to RPC
  • minergate: Load temperatures from stats file
  • minergate: Implement hashmeter

It it performs better on the SP30 than cgminer you know Zvi will have it in there in a heartbeat.
Unlikely, since the minergate driver is just using Spondoolies' minergate software, which does the actual driver implementation.
Will probably write another, standalone, driver eventually if it makes sense, but this was a quicker way to get things working at least Smiley

I was wondering, which version if any of BFGMiner that will allow me to mine SHA256 with a 5 chip Gridseed? I perfer BFGMiner over CGminer and I have it working at lest for scrypt. I'm currently using a Rasberry Pi, latest version of Wheezy and followed all the guides I can fine to compile BFG.
Not supported nor planned.
Patches welcome.

What I can see is that instead of reporting GPU as a device type, it is reporting as PGA, with name "OCL". I can also see that several GPU commands (like gpudisable) are deprecated, but they are still working. ASIC commands like ascdisable doesn't exist. Is it that all devices (GPU, PGA, ASIC) are reported as PGA and that the PGA commands (pgadisable, ...) can be used on all of them?
Yes, "PGA" is at this point just a generic term for "device" for cgminer compatibility.
BFGMiner also support per-processor level details which you can get with the "proc*" commands instead of "pga*".

Is GPU mining something that will be removed from future releases of BfgMiner, as commands like gpuengine are deprected without any replacements?
No plans to remove GPU support, but gpuengine and similar were replaced with pgaset a while ago.

A signed message means the key owner approved the message.  The frequent use is to sign payment authorization, and this is transparent inside the wallet.
Minor nit: this is confusing signed messages with ECDSA signatures in general.
Bitcoin signed messages prove the recipient of the address (not the key) agrees to the content of the message signed.
The recipient may not have/control the key behind the address, and may have no authority to speak for a transaction signed by the same key.

Just as a warning, the server code is starting to make it's appearance in this release.  The eventual outcome of this is that you will be able to go to https://mineforeman.io/ to manage your mining... at present all it does is erroneously tell you your mining rig is out of date though Wink .
How do you plan to make this such that someone compromising your server cannot hijack every miner using it?

Good question.  All of the normal security layers will be there, ssl certs, ssh private keys, fire walling, VPN, load balance front end's.  I also have plenty of experience at running these things (my real life job is wrapping servers up in layers of security).  Even the communication between the miner and the server will use key signatures (as well as ssl etc).

In the end though, as we well know from pools, exchanges and a myriad of other "things on the internet" if someone gets root, your stuffed, and I don't think anyone who runs servers on the internet is going to deny that or say that their systems are un-hack able.

It is also not going to be compulsory Wink .  By default it is not going to be on.

I suggest:
  • Open source the server side, and have the client side require a server configured.
  • Ensure everything works if *pool commands are disabled (or at least addpool, if the user wants to actually change pools via the interface).
  • Possibly accept direct access if the user wants to just forward a port.
  • Enforce secure passwords (using eg cracklib).

I've corrected the links. Please double check that I didn't get anything wrong.
410  Other / Bitcoin Wiki / Re: User inserting fake link (edit war) on: August 04, 2014, 09:01:13 PM
http://www.bitcoinfog.com/

Gives the following URL:
http://fogcore5n3ov3tui.onion/

I can connect to it.

Is the owner's online handle known? perhaps he can provide a signed message to confirm the URL.

EDIT: there is a PGP key here: http://fogcore5n3ov3tui.onion/static/bitcoinfog-PGP-public-key.txt
Also claims this is the official thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=50037.0 showing same onion URL.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but neither party in the edit war was putting that onion URI I think?
I guess maybe they could both be scammers :/
411  Other / Bitcoin Wiki / Re: User inserting fake link (edit war) on: August 04, 2014, 08:11:06 PM
I'm going to give both of them a 3-day ban with a link here in hopes the honest one comes to explain the situation.

Did Eligius ever hand out the 200btc to its miners?
not to this scammer fuck Tongue and it was just 1 miner Smiley
crashoveride54902 means the 200 BTC we recovered.

Answer is not yet, since it will take quite a bit of code to do still Sad
414  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Guide] Dogie's Comprehensive Avalon Avalon2 Setup + Silencer Mod on: August 02, 2014, 03:36:58 PM
BFGMiner 4.6 (just released) can now support Avalon2 devices - even alongside other devices or more Avalon2 devices.
415  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Guide] Dogie's Comprehensive RockMiner R-Box Setup [HD] on: August 02, 2014, 04:12:10 AM
Here is the screenshot. it is still increasing as i am posting now


This looks normal to me. R-BOX sometimes loses jobs, so BFGMiner has to resend them.
Notice your share difficulty is 1.02k, so every share is worth 1024 "difficulty 1 shares".
As long as your third hashrate (which should approximate what the pool sees) is accurate, you're good.

Any chance of Bitmain S1/S2/S3 support?
This is all kinda pending waiting on Bitmain since the S1... :/

Just no dev unit? Or no source to go off?

If I can get a MIPS compiler setup in a Linux VM tonight I would be willing to at least start poking around
They did send a dev S1, but no docs, and the source is essentially useless Sad
They have a Github acct. and were supposed to have posted the open code somewhere for people who bought chips, access to S1 controller boards was also stated as part of the chip deal. One thing holding me back from buying S1/S3 is I would prefer to use BFG Miner. Maybe a request sent thru the github repo would get a response from Bitmain.
They have code, but it isn't useful - besides being poorly written and hard to read, it's just code, and doesn't tell you the underlying logic in the chips and controller.
Documentation and/or interaction with someone who knows these things is somewhat necessary, else there are many days of reverse engineering work to be done. Sad
Note that if you're making your own boards with their chips, that's mostly unrelated to S1-S3 driver support; even if S1-S3 were supported, it's not necessarily going to "just work" with any other PCB using the same chips.
On the other hand, that may be a good thing for you: you don't need their driver either. But we'd still need some kind of documentation for the chips...

There is no encryption involved in Bitcoin.
As Eleuthria said, you are clueless.
