With last updates, and having my TZ in London/Lisbon, the donation period started today @ Noon and not @ Midnight and I like it more, as I can quickly confirm that all went smoothly and as expected, without having to be awake @ "late night".

I seem to be having some trouble switching to bfgminer as the auto-start miner.

I did the following:
Code:
sudo systemctl stop cgminer.service
sudo systemctl disable cgminer.service
sudo systemctl enable bfgminer.service
sudo systemctl start bfgminer.service

But the miner never seems to start. So I dug in and started bfgminer via ssh only to receive the message "All devices disabled".

Might I have to edit the line in bfgminer.service that starts the miner?

All that said, MinePeon is freaking awesome, was plug and play for using cgminer with a block erupter (pi will power 1 off it's own ports surprisingly). Only exception to plug and play was setting up wifi (still super easy thanks to wicd-curses) and setting up auto ntp time updating at start (time issue was really bugging me). Thank you so much for getting all this together, and I love the new stats pages, keep up the freaking awesome work!

I did it at Thomas's suggestion for debugging but I actually quite like it as well and will probably keep it like that.  It has proiven to be a buggy bit of code and the last thing I want to do is steal hashes (what I actualy want to do is make enough to make MinePeon my full time job).

Unfortunately with the 3.x.x series bfgminer and cgminer went two different ways as to how they use USB, bfgminer still works but you may need to edit;-

/usr/lib/systemd/system/bfgminer.service

And put your options into it.

Oh no! Not again! CGMINER: LATEST-IS-3.3.3

I saw that, it has a few optimisations that will be very useful on the Pi, I am running it now and expect to push it up to git soon.

Thanks! Though I did make the edit and I'm still getting "all devices disabled" perhaps I'm missing something else? Here's what the ExecStart line in bfgminer.service looks after the small edit:
Code:
ExecStart=/usr/bin/screen -dmS bfgminer /opt/minepeon/bin/bfgminer -S all --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 --api-listen --api-allow W:172.0.0.1 --sharelog /opt/minepeon/log/share.log -c /opt/minepeon/etc/miner.conf

EDIT: strangely starting the service didn't work (after enabling) but a quick reboot on the pi and it's all good now, mining away with the latest bfgminer (very slightly less cpu usage)

It should be on the wiki, I have never been good at keeping it up to date though and Thomas is doing a bit of work on it at the moment.

If your running 0.2.2 you can just go;-

cd /opt/minepeon/
git pull

And it will update the binaries and;-

cd /opt/minepeon/http/
git pull

Will update the WebUI.  Remember though, this is beta software and you will probably get problems.  If you are not sure there will be a new image out in the next few days (my real job keeps getting in the way).

Not so strange, I forgot to tell you to reload the systemd unit files with;-

systemctl daemon-reload

A reboot will do though Cheesy .  This is why I am so bad with the wiki, I forget to mention the obvious things.

I think I am almost done getting minepeon running on the cubieboard 2. Working on an authentication issue with the web interface. I hope to have it worked out tonight.

Outstanding manual, Malakai. Many thanks.

Meanwhile, I'm now using cgminr 3.3.3, without problems, thanks to Neil.

Nice!
These permission settings will probably have to be done too after git pull:

(first sudo su)

Code:
mkdir /opt/minepeon/etc/backup
chmod 660 $(find /opt/minepeon/etc -type f)
chmod 770 $(find /opt/minepeon/etc -type d)
chmod 770 $(find /opt/minepeon/var -type d)
chmod -R 777 /opt/minepeon/etc/backup
chown -R http.http /opt/minepeon/etc

mkdir /opt/minepeon/http/rrd/ /opt/minepeon/http/phpliteAdmin/
chmod -R 770 /opt/minepeon/http/rrd/ /opt/minepeon/http/phpliteAdmin/
chown -R minepeon.http /opt/minepeon/http/rrd/ /opt/minepeon/http/phpliteAdmin/

And passwd will only change the password, not really reset it Smiley

Will minepeon still remember the  donation pools even if the fields are empty . I'm donating an hour now to catch up . If not , Neil can you please give me a donation URL to enter in the GUI.

So long as the time is set it should I believe you could check

Code:
nano /opt/minepeon/etc/miner.conf.donate

That should open it read only if not add sudo/

And see what pools are listed.

It basically runs a cron hourly and if the time is noon this file kicks off

/opt/minepeon/etc/cron.d/hourly/donate

It copies your config to a temp then copies the donation config and restarts cgminer for the allotted time then copies them back and restarts it again.

I was able to set the right date on the miner client but the time is not right yet. I'll run it for 24 hours and see what happens. , I should of just set it up when I first started using minepeon .

Thanks for helping out.
