Which coin do you like?

My issues with alt coins is they are usually set up to "fix" problems with bitcoin of their own invention (or they are just a scam, but that is another story).  Some use different hashing, some change proof-of-work and proof-of-stake about.  They all seem to clam to "fix" something fundamentally wrong with bitcoin.

My issue is that I don't see anything fundamentally wrong with bitcoin and I have confidence that when/if we find something wrong we will just fix bitcoin (as we have in the past).

Having said that, I am also not diametrically opposed to alt coins, I just have not found one yet that made me think "this is better than bitcoin".

PS: Java installed perfectly on Raspberry Pi, thank you guys. And it is still mining. Looks like it did not brake. Will try to do more experiments.

As I said, it should work, just don't blame me if it breaks Cheesy .

Neil

Is it also possible to VNC to there, please?
Also, there is no "desktop" to VNC to, so just connect via SSH. (Use PuTTY if using a Windows system) Or just use the Web Admin interface.

I'll do. Thanks again for your kind help and support.

You might have also done something to your permissions, you should always do git work as minepeon and not root via sudo so your shopuld probably;-

sudo chown -R minepeon.minepeon /opt/minepeon

The "git reset --hard origin/master" may have also changed the branch you are working on as well, you want to be on the 0.2.4 branch NOT the master branch.  The master branch is used for development and requires a different OS build so you should make sure your on the correct branch by doing;-

cd /opt/minepeon
git checkout -b 0.2.4

Neil
Code:
[minepeon@minepeon ~]$ cd /opt/minepeon
[minepeon@minepeon minepeon]$ git checkout -b 0.2.4
fatal: A branch named '0.2.4' already exists.

I think this error is ok, confirming that I'm in the correct branch...

Many thanks for your continuous help and support, Neil. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

And don't forget old ideas, like a program to "condensate" the mining info of several MinePeon's/cgminer's/bfgminer's in a real-time screen, using another RPI...

I'm a bit tired, and a bit dazed with all this mining stuff at the moment.   Embarrassed

What is the story with the IceFury USB miners?  They seem to be a NanoFury clone. 

Is the hidapi stuff included with MinePeon?  Or did I try and install hidapi when trying to get the BlueFurys working?  Jeesh, I can't remember.  Roll Eyes

Also, someone mentioned adding the -q option to bfgminer to improve performance - well I've tried it on my OpenWRT router, and performance is much, much improved, so much that my Blades and Cube run on the OpenWRT device when they used to switch to the Windows machine in preference.

If you have a desire to play/test the new cgminer 3.9.0, Kano has provided compiled versions for RPi here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=28402.msg4101165#msg4101165

It was trivial to install:
Code:
cd /opt/minepeon/bin
wget https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries/raw/master/RPi_Arch/cgminer-3.9.0a
sudo mv cgminer cgminer.old
sudo mv cgminer-3.9.0a cgminer
sudo chmod +x cgminer
From the stats page on the Web GUI, click Restart Miner. Confirm Miner Version says cgminer3.9.0a
Done.  Cool

It is a fun and novel way to kill SD cards though with of all of the writes.
bitcoind gets to about Feb 2013 (eventually), from then on it gets starts to seriously lag behind (taking ~24 hours to validate ~18hrs worth of blocks) until eventually it kills the SD cards - have been tempted to see if that can be used as a way of stress-testing SSD drives Smiley

Correct, I've got one coming to replace a BlueFury that went fizzt.

Would be interesting to see if microSDs using an SD adaptor can last longer or not under the same conditions.

Don't see why they would, microSD is just the same shitty chip on a smaller package.

It is based on the nano fury design with some modifications so that we could source alternate parts.

Minepeon is based on what distro?

I don't actually get along, I am so used to Debian. Basics of which distribution I have to learn/read to work better with Minepoen?

Still great product, btw.

Arch Linux (ARM).

I have nothing against Debian but Arch allows very specific builds customised to Architectures (Hence the Arch in it's name).  It allowed me to build exactly what I wanted and nothing more, but it will still allow you to customise it however you like.

It also works on a rolling release system that make maintenance a lot easier (compared to versions with Debian OS's).

Last of all, when I started MinePeon Debian's (or rather rasperians) USB implementation was so bauked it crashed any USB miner within hours.  I believe it still is and the miner guys do various work around's to make it work (i.e. they compile in their own libusb etc..).

Thank you for helping.
Should
sysvinit-tools be replaced with core/procps-ng?

Will not break something?

Quote
[minepeon@minepeon ~]$ sudo pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
 alarm is up to date
 aur is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: Replace sysvinit-tools with core/procps-ng? [Y/n]


It didn't affect my MinePeon when I did "sudo pacman -Syu" and said yes to everything.

But yeah, you should do everything that Neil says. Roll Eyes

Working on it now, I finally have a few to make it easier.

Beastlymac sent me a few of the new upcoming IceFury's (very nice bits of gear) and a MinePeon user was nice enough to sen me an actual nanofury.

They both arrived yesterday but I am still having problems, I get them detected OK now and seem to have most of the hidapi problems sorted but I am now getting errors like;-

Code:

While trying to initialise the devices.  I am about to downgrade bfgminer to 3.8.0 to make sure it is not a problem that come in with 3.9.0 (it happens).

If that doesn't work I have compile a pole of debugging info and I am going to ask Luke-Jr for a hand (he is moving house at the moment so he is a bit busy).
