Hi, I've been following your work for a while but only just gave your latest version a try today on my new 512K model B.
Everything seemed OK until it tried to start the dhcpcd service - this failed with an error 1. So no Ethernet for me.

To cut a long story short it appears the dhcpcd startup was trying to re-lease an old IP address 192.168.1.210 each time (I guess this is an address from your system put in during the img creation?).
This could not work because my network is 192.168.0.xxx

So, following info in the Arch Linux Network Config wiki, I set a static address (the same address my dhcp server was trying to give it) into the /etc/conf.d/dhcpcd file with DHCPCD_ARGS="-q -s 192.168.0.x" and a quick re-boot later I was in business.

Thanks for all your hard work on Minepeon.
I'll report back futher when/if my BFL boxes ever turn up.  Roll Eyes

Is there a list of supported devices?
Well it will be a subset of the mining software.
For cgminer it is: all BFL, Icarus based, ModMinerQuad, Avalon and ZTex
"Icarus based" covers a few well known: Icarus, Lancelot, Cairnsmore1 and Asicminer USB Erupter
and also anything else that emulates an Icarus device.
... anything else is a waste of time ...

I enable all the above but Avalon in my github cgminer-binaries rpi binary release
I've tested all except Lancelot but I'll get one soon to test.

Exactly as Kano said in the upcoming release with the addition of Avalon compiled in (He wrote a lot of cgminer, so he should know).

I will go through my emails and compile a list of tested mining devices soon, I have been distracted by something else today....

Thank you kindly, I am in awe of the little device, it puts out 5.4 GH/s constantly and it isn't the size of a room!!


Neil

P.S. MinePeon version 0.1.0 ASIC out this weekend!

twice now after a couple of days the pi just refuses to talk, its pingable but otherwise dead, rebooting and it wont boot up.
So hopefully it was a power problem.

That is a bit concerning, it will have something to do with the power though.

I am running my 'developement' one off an apple USB power plug that came with a iPhone and have had no problems with it, 100+ days up now with 4 of those running a Butterfly Labs ASIC Wink .

its not your fault. if you cant SSH into it its stuck with a read/write operation on the SD card. since the kernel is in memory you can still ping it.

its been ok since i powered it with the ubec.

So my cairnsmore fgpa's are plugged in straight out of the box, but dont seem to be detected.
I will confirm they have a bitstream on them but do i need to do anything else to detect them

So I had to do

modprobe ftdi_sio product=0x8350 vendor=0x0403 to make the usb serials arrive in /dev/ttyUSBx

then I had to modify /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/cgminer.service

Changing

ExecStart=/usr/bin/screen -dmS cgminer /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer -S auto --api-listen --api-allow W:172.0.0.1 --sharelog /opt/minepeon/log/share.log -c /opt/minepeon/etc/miner.conf

to read

ExecStart=/usr/bin/screen -dmS cgminer /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer -S /dev/ttyUSB0 -S /dev/ttyUSB1 -S /dev/ttyUSB2 -S /dev/ttyUSB3 -S /dev/ttyUSB4 -S /dev/ttyUSB5 -S /dev/ttyUSB6 -S /dev/ttyUSB7 -S /dev/ttyUSB8 -S /dev/ttyUSB9 -S /dev/ttyUSB10 -S /dev/ttyUSB11 -S /dev/ttyUSB12 -S /dev/ttyUSB13 -S /dev/ttyUSB14 -S /dev/ttyUSB15 -S /dev/ttyUSB16 -S /dev/ttyUSB17 -S /dev/ttyUSB18 -S /dev/ttyUSB19 --api-listen --api-allow W:172.0.0.1 --sharelog /opt/minepeon/log/share.log -c /opt/minepeon/etc/miner.conf

I note the scale of the graph reports Th not Gh.

hi new user here. it works like a charm! dd the image, visit web site, enter pool/worker info and connect the pfga bfl single. I noticed the graph page shows values off byt 10^3. mine fpga single shows as 800 G, should be 800 M.
anyway amazing distro. thank  you! (my setup: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BKq1OyJCcAAWJtB.jpg )

AWESOME work - really cool!

It just worked out of the box and config is too easy. Thanks!


Maybe for future releases it would be awesome to have some external LCD hooked up to show up infos of the miners (Hashrate, earned BTC, ...) - I found several projects with LCD display for the Pi, like that here:
