1  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: USB ASIC ERUPTER - Setup & Config. BCG Miner, cgminer, Hubs "oh my"! on: June 08, 2013, 07:22:53 PM
I have been running my Raspberry Pi with cgminer 3.1.1 and just one block erupter. Does the pi give the erupters high hardware failures for everyone?

I see <1% errors usually, with peaks around 1%.  I saw >1% before I found a good cooling solution.

How hot is your erupter getting?  Can you hold your finger on the heat shield?

I plan to get cgminer compiled on my Raspberry Pi Model B. Can anyone help a Linux noob compile cgminer 3.1.1 on a Raspberry Pi?

Which linux distribution are you running on your raspberry pi?
2013-05-25-wheezy-raspbian
http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads

Its debian but made for the pi.

This page has a good overview of how to build cgminer:
http://techblog.sethleedy.name/?p=24276

1. Install the dependencies using apt-get
2. Download cgminer v3.1.1 from here: https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer/tags
3. Unzip or untar it somewhere in your home directory.
4. cd into the cgminer directory
5. Run "./autogen.sh" since you downloaded the zip/tar from github
6. Run "./configure --enable-icarus" (icarus support is required for the erupter)
7. Run "make" to build cgminer
8. Run cgminer with the icarus options listed earlier in this thread and one -S /dev/ttyUSBX for each of your erupters, where X is the number of the unit starting from zero.

If you get errors in any of the autogen/configure/make steps, it's likely there is a missing dependency that needs to be installed with apt-get.

HTH

Can you guys explain to me why you are buying these devices, which have no other value but for mining of BTC?

I just do not see how these would be profitable given the current growth of the difficulty.

They are readily available and they work.

They are also silent and efficient.

I've wanted to mine for a while, but was turned off by the power requirements of GPU mining.  I like having a source of bitcoins that isn't dependent on exchanges.

I am also seeing about 1% HW errors - and my units are no longer hot now that I have moved things around a bit.
I believe these numbers to probably be normal  Undecided

I switched to the DLink hub (D-Link DUB-H7) with the ARCTIC Breeze fan (~5mm above the erupter) and I'm seeing <0.1% HW errors.

Did anyone figure out how to run it on a mac?

There is a mac only thread here somewhere. Try there.
Please let me know what you find out.

I was unable to build cgminer or bfgminer on OS X 10.6, so I couldn't even test it.

I get about 1-1.5% HW errors.  I only have one erupter, so it isn't a sufficiently large data set.  I'm hanging the erupter with a usb extension cable in front of a box fan.

I started mining with my Erupter / Raspberry Pi yesterday.

I'm running the hard-float Raspbian image (2013-02-09-wheezy-raspbian) from raspberrypi.org on my pi.  I liked MinePeon but when I tried it there was no way to upgrade the system other than completely rewriting the SD card with a new image.  I had trouble getting my wifi working with the arch linux image from raspberrypi.org.

I'm mining on the rpi with cgminer v3.1.1.  I downloaded a tar of the tagged version from github (https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer).  Build dependencies were installed with apt-get.  I had to set my LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that it could find the jansson library.  I'm using the following hardware-specific cgminer options:

  --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 -S /dev/ttyUSB0

I have this Manhattan hub (http://www.adafruit.com/products/961) which I would not recommend for Erupter mining due to the layout of the ports.  I'll be replacing it with the DLink DUB-H7 mentioned earlier in this thread.

Any recommended pools to run a couple of these things on (i.e. for small fish)? Smiley

This wikipedia page has an overwhelming amount of information about various pools:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Comparison_of_mining_pools

I starting mining on Eligius (http://eligius.st/~gateway/) yesterday.  It was attractive to me because you don't need an account to get started.

Thanks for the updates. Very much appreciated.

I second this!

How is local pickup working?

PM to setup an individual time/location or group pickup at some starbucks or something?

I'd like to know this as well.

Your orders are not going to be lost...
Everything will be properly accounted for.

I've never received the CoinAd confirmation email, even after requesting it be sent two times.  Has anyone else had this problem?

There is not a typo in my email address and I checked my spam folder.
