Will the awesome piece of code named Minepeon support my Block Eruptors, Blue Furies and Antminer U1s connected to one RPi out of the box soon?

Currently I have to run 2 Pies...

Thanks for all the hard work to all people involved!

which should be soon.

Same here. I get nothing but HW errors.

Going to try to get further with this soon. Finally picked up a Beaglebone and I'm going to see if that has the same issues.

Sorry, I just went to bed instead of makeing a new image (still feeling a bit off after my operation last week).

The good news is though is the weekend is almost here and I will be spending 10+ hours getting the new pre-release build out that will have everything in it.

My twinFury sits happily with the Blues. Is there much difference?

using the default minepeon with BFGminer

Dont know realy, im kind of new at this. The Bi*Fury is a USB miner https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=309918.0

Triede both the cgminer and the bfgminer. Not getting hashes with any of them.

I just installed the latest version of minepeon, from the website.
Plugged the TwinFury into a powered USB2 hub, filled in the pool details, selected Default BFGminer, and away it went.

There is a guide for setting up with erupters, not much different:-

Ya - TwinFury works with MinePeon, Bi*Fury doesn't  Grin

Just two entirely different Bitfury-based USB ASICs.

I can confirm the Bi*Fury works fine with a Beaglebone Black. Liking the device so far. Much faster than a Raspberry Pi for $10 more.

What does the extra speed really do for you with the BBB?

Personally I compile bfgminer on there at least once or twice a week if not more. Depends on what's going on. That takes forever on the Pi and is pretty quick (relatively) on the BBB. In addition, the BBB seems to run Bi*Fury and the HashBuster USB just fine, and both were giving me issues on the Pi.

It definitely has issues though! Mostly related to USB (fancy that). I seem to have to hard boot it if I mess with the USB devices or it locks up.

In addition, the BBB seems to run Bi*Fury and the HashBuster USB just fine, and both were giving me issues on the Pi.

I probably do it even more often than you and yeah, compile speeds are much better, I might actualy consider building a kernel on the BBB (if I have a week or two to spare Tongue ).

It definitely has issues though! Mostly related to USB (fancy that). I seem to have to hard boot it if I mess with the USB devices or it locks up.

True that, my main bugbears with the BBB are;-

1. uBoot (or noBoot as it seems to work out quite often)

2. The kernel and in particular the USB support is very immature compared to the Pi, even taking into account the Pi's buggy USB.

I expect the kernel to be getting better and better though as more people use it.  Comparing it to the Raspberry Pi kernel is a bit unfair because the Pi has been out so long and is very well supported.

Using either the Pi or the BBB comes with it's own plus's and minus's.....  I must be mad doing both Tongue .

The Bad News: hidapi (for bfgminer) looks to be a bust on ARM architectures, I have tried it on several different device types with varying results, anything from crashes to unstability.  Deffinatly nothing you would want to trust your mining gear to.



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


Currently just using MinePeon to proxy my ASICMiners, Pi is plugged in to the USB port on the back of my Airport Extreme.  Working like a little champ, though the heat from the Airport is pushing the Pi up to 58-60C, even with heat sinks on the Pi's chips. Sad

I stuck my Pi in the exhaust airflow off of my BFL Little single. Dropped the temperature around 10 degrees C

Feature request:

When PI freezes, let us set the hardware timer, so it can restart.


You can set this up yourself in Minepeon by following the Arch instructions from here: http://blog.ricardoarturocabral.com/2013/01/auto-reboot-hung-raspberry-pi-using-on.html

Thanks!  Grin
Done and dusted!
One word of caution, automatically starting the watchdog (ie putting it in the modules-load.d directory) Can put you in a bootloop where the hardware watchdog initializes and runs out of time before any hardware monitor can start pushing a heartbeat into it.

I've not seen any of those issues with my BBB at all, and I've been beating the crap out of mine - mining, running remote monitoring, and a few other things.  I did notice it wasn't too stable when being powered off USB, so I've got mine running off the 5V 2A PSU that came with my DLink D7 hub.

Then again, I'm running Wheezy on mine off the eMMC.

Then again, I'm running Wheezy on mine off the eMMC.

Here's the problem I have, maybe you can give some insight.

I got my BBB yesterday. I'm also using a nice 5V 2A PSU, and I've also installed Debian Wheezy (though I'm still running off a Class 10 microSD rather than the eMCC).

Here's a scenario:

I can run bfgminer, and scan for devices, and (probably) see them all successfully. Then I plug in another USB device, and try to scan with bfgminer again. This will lock up bfgminer and (probably) the BBB as well, requiring me to unplug it and replug it in.

It's pretty easy to reproduce and seems to happen only if I mess with the USB devices plugged in. However it seems to have similar instability if I load it up with a bunch of different types of ASICs as well. It does Hashbuster fine. It does Bi*Fury fine. But if I load it up with Hashbuster, Bi*Fury, AntMiner, and some NanoFurys, it may work or it may lock up when I try to use the devices.
