This is the first time I have ever  posted on a forum, so I hope to get some positive information from you guys!  Grin

I am stumped.  Mining on my Rasberry Pi 2 using CGminer, with Minera and 3 Gridseeds. Seems that they only want to accept  local work?  I have exhausted all the information within my remit.  ANY help would be greatly appreciated!   

Here is the relevant info:

Did you already try CPUminer instead of cgminer? It's optimized for use with Gridseeds (Minera Settings, Miner Settings, CPUminer GC3355 fork).
Your Gridseeds are running but not hashing. Are you sure your PSU is sufficient? I had this issue when I used a 12V/1A PSU.

Thanks for the response Tittiecoiner!

I will give that a shot over the weekend.  Did you flash an image to an SD card, or did you download it onto the Raspberry Pi separately ?

This is my power supply! I have actually earned 0.009---------- or so of a litecoin, so I had it running for a day with those settings, but it hasn't run since. I can't figure out why...

Any more help or advice would be greatly appreciated, I'll tip you if I can get it working!

Thanks,

try this https://github.com/NVReaver/ZoomHash-Pi-Software it will work with a rasp pi 2 i had the ui part working, the image won't you have to manually install it for the PI2 to work with it, they tell you how to down the page the only problem i had was it won't download and install BFGMINER, the manual way which I'm sure i did wrong but it does work with the Pi2 and even BFGMINER works with the PI2 build 5.1.0, i had it complied  and up and running in command line mode on a PI2.

As other said try to use cpuminer with GS or at least Bfgminer, I don't recommend cgminer with GS.
If you download the latest version of Minera you'll get preconfigured options too. Really easy to have everything setup correctly.

Get Minera. Your next bitcoin mining dashboard. Donations BTC: 1AvF29tTd6w8kvLuTp5QqLFbN6LTQDoGFQ - Try GigaWatt mining Tokens

True, Minera is a great software, IMHO the best solution for running miners on a Pi.
