Neil I bought a new SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC card and installed.  It is def. stable and loads better now, but the stratum proxy still is moving at 2mph.  I am pushing one (tomorrow will be two) AsicMiner Cube's through it.  Somewhat of a network guy but everything is behind a Sophos UTM so I know there is no routing issues (esp since on my desktop I have no issues).  Is there something with Python2 (I have to modify the scripts to work since it tries to envoke python (/usr/bin/env python to /usr/bin/python2) to get it to start.  Do you know of a better program for this? 

I will be switching back to BFGMiner when they get their Antminer drivers going since my BiFury and Ice Fury won't get picked up in CGMiner (the version I have to run to get Antminers to work).  I'll try the built in Proxy on that here soon (granted the next update works fine on the PI).

Thanks again and I am not here to bitch just giving status update that the new card helped MUCHO lol.  21meg write speeds compared to 9meg when flashing LOL!

But as I have one workless RPI around here, it would be a Solution for me.

Cool, I will update as soon (with a button) as I am fairly confidant it wont burn your house down.

In the meantime I just pushed the latest miners so;-

cd /opt/minepeon
git pull

If you want them.

Neil

Dose the new cgminer build have drillbit support enabled? I have new pi enroute to run my drill bit and my other pi is running bfgminer with a jala and a cube though the proxy. Maybe someday I can get back to just one....

I am fairly sure it wont burn you house down now so HEXu has been added to git (with a button).

A few additional steps are necessary to make it work so I have written a wiki page detailing them and it is available here;-

Enjoy!

It is my understanding that Vs3 has sent ckolivas a nanofury compatible version of cgminer?

I had not heard that, that is defiantly good news.

3 days solid mining here on the BBB with hidapi on Debian.  Mining like a champ with two IceFurys, and two Jalapenos.  

The BBB is defiantly the best of the ARM platforms, there are still issues though but I am slowly working through them.

Next release of MinePeon will be available for the BBB in addition to the CubeBoard2.

It does now, I have not tested it yet and make sure you update using ssh and;-

cd /opt/minepeon/
git pull

I have not tested it though (I don't have a drillbit) so get back to me if you have issues.

Indeed. It's a modified clone of Legkodymov's clone. If anyone else is interested - feel free to PM me. It has some limitations - like I made it work for Windows and in the process may have broken other OSes so whoever intends to play with it would need to know how to troubleshoot those, it stops scanning after the first device, etc. That's also the same one that Marto74 used for his patch.
Alternatively if you want to start from scratch - the file you're looking for is : https://github.com/nanofury/NanoFury_Init/blob/master/nf1_init/nf_spidevc.cpp (and the .h one)

I'm looking forward to it - I would nearly buy another BBB, but they're terribly difficult to find in stock anywhere in the UK or EU.  The Pi is dead on as a little network device, but it really does fill it's pants when asked to do a lot of USB stuff, especially considering the NIC also hangs off the USB bus.   Looks like I'll be running a pair of MinePeons - the RPi for proxy service, and the BBB for the USB miners, as I am now with Minepeon on the Pi and Debian on the BBB.  Heck, the BBB even works with the Anker 10-port USB3 hub!

Only real complaint about the BBB is the lights - they're OMG bright!  Cool

Can nothing be done to fix the rPi USB interface?

No, it's shit.  It's the SOC's USB that sucks, so unless they change the SOC the shit USB is going to be there for good.  If they change the SOC, then it's no longer a Pi.

That's why the BBB works, it uses a totally different Ti ARMv7 SOC, not the older ARMv6 in the Pi.


To be fair on the designers of the Pi, the USB was there for a USB keyboard and perhaps a USB wifi dongle so school kids could get the things running (hence the composite video output also).  It was never designed to run 20-odd bitcoin miners hanging off multiple hubs.  They would probably have put a couple of PS2 ports on the thing if they had designed it a few years earlier...

The BeagleBone Black's design is more geared towards the 'hobbyist', so faster more capable SOC, better cape support, and the eMMC is fantastic to have.

Fair comment, they were designed to be destroyed in the classroom, not supporting a bank clearing house.

Neil I bought a new SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC card and installed.  It is def. stable and loads better now, but the stratum proxy still is moving at 2mph.  I am pushing one (tomorrow will be two) AsicMiner Cube's through it. 

I've a Cube @ 38GH and two V1 Blades at 13GH each going through BFG's proxy on MinePeon.  Current uptime of 4 days and still trucking along at 60-64GH.

There's something wrong with your network or your Pi.


(My Pi is powered off the back of my Airport Extreme, Blades and Cubes are connecting via Powerline adapters, so my rig is not optimal in ANY shape, form or fashion).

Have 3 BBB on back order but lord knows for how long Sad

I haven't tried through BFG.  Nwools or whoever just put out a beta driver for the Antminer.  It was my RPI and Stratum Proxy.  I hope BFG works, have a second cube being delivered tomorrow.  Smiley

BFG's proxy for me is a little slower than slush's proxy on the Cube, though BFG's proxy is faster for the Blades, I suspect it's due to the lack of Longpoll on BFG's proxy.  But I just use BFG's proxy as it's easier to manage, and I don't have to run a PC for the whole thing.

With the Antminers arriving today hopefully I think I'll be mining on the PC again for a little while - at least until BFG with ANT support is released, then it'll be back to the BBB running Debian in expectation of MinePeon for BBB. Smiley

Feature request:

Any chance of the MinePeon front page being able to display stats from another instance of bfg/cg?  MinePeon's front page obviously uses the API, but it'd be brilliant if it could show stats of other cg/bfg instances on the network?

Currently I'm using the normal miner.php hosted off my NAS to display stats from my 2-3 miner instances, but it's ugly and clunky.

I use this for monitoring multiple miners: https://github.com/selaux/miner-dashboard
It's much better than the miner.php.

Also, you mentioned getting the Anker 10 USB3 hub working on the BBB? It didn't for me, how'd you do it? Did you daisy chain with a USB 2 hub? I'll try again later (running 5 Drillbit boards through a Plugable 7 port hub at the moment to my BBB on Debian).

Yeah, it's through a DLink 7-port.

It's only me, or the python2 program cgminerLCDStats.py stopped getting the BTC value of MtGox, some 3 weeks ago? It is getting all info from bfgminer, when installed in a RPI with MinePeon, but stopped getting the BTC value, displaying always $000.00.

Great! Up and hashing with 2.5 and 2.2 at 54. Can I change that 54 value in cgminer?

Hashing the next 3 Days only on the Donation Account.

Thanks a lot for your work!
