Ya it's bfgminer.  PiMinersimple looks like it might work but how do I get it installed with minepeon?

Send one BTC to 12Ui8w9q6eq6TxZmow8H9VHbZdfEnsLDsB .... (kidding, unless your really gonna do it Tongue )

I will have a look to night and might even message the author, lets see if we can get something going.

Lol how about I keep my donations on   Tongue

I'm gonna play with it and see if I can figure it out from the instructions to make it work with cgminer with raspian... I'll let you know if i'm successful.

Wish me luck

OK I can already tell I'm not going to get anywhere with these instructions because everything is inside minepeon.

Quote
Repository:  https://github.com/tghamm/PiMinerSimple
From /home/pi, do the following:

git clone https://github.com/tghamm/PiMinerSimple.git

Now, if you’ve already got cgminer running, we need to stop it, and re-run it using the nohup command, so that we can return to the console to run PiMinerSimple.
Use Ctrl + \ if you need to exit cgminer, or, you can always restart the Pi.Now, let’s start cgminer as a background application.  It’s almost the same as before, but with a couple of small changes.
From home/pi:

cd cgminer
sudo nohup ./cgminer --bmsc-options 115200:20 -o mint.bitminter.com:3333 -u username_instancename -p x --bmsc-freq 0781 --api-allow W:0/0 --api-listen &

When you run this, the application will start and you will be returned to the console.Now let’st start PiMinerSimple.
From /home/pi:

cd PiMinerSimple
sudo nohup python PiMinerSimple.py &

That should activate the the LCD, and after a few seconds, should start reporting statistics from cgminer.
That’s it!

I'm guessing piminersimple needs to be made into a plugin somehow.

Since MinePeon comes equipped with everything you need already that is "in theory" all you need do.  The miner is setup and ready.

Whole bunch of nothing...  I know with piminer I had to put in "./install.sh" after cloning.  I tried that and nothing.  Might it need to be installed a diffrent way?

Whole bunch of nothing... 

Yeah, nothing is ever that simple Wink .

The ./install.sh bit was from my plugin to set up all the dependencies and startup stuff.  I will see if I can delve into it tonight.  The problem is the author of the fork has made it so it works in his particular environment with his particular settings. I need to make it work in everyone environment with everyone settings.

Sorry, I am 100% snowed under.  Maintaining, supporting and advancing MinePeon is all I can keep up with at the moment (and the full time job).  The BBB and x86 port take priority after that and then Maintaining other peoples code comes a way distant 7th Wink .

I do have it loaded on one of my MinePeons though, I will see how things are after I push out cgminer 4!

I'm looking forward to the BBB version.  I gonna pick one up soon to play with/test for you.
If you have a sdcard that works with the LCD is there any way you could make an img of it that I could get and try?

...
With the way open source stuff goes, if your not constantly maintaining stuff every thing else progresses and breaks your old code and I have enough of my own stuff to maintain.  I have noticed though that someone else has forked piMiner and is doing something interesting with it;-
...
Just thought I'd point out about the cgminer API ...
Since I wrote it, I have tried to keep backward compatibility to the maximum.
The only changes I've made that break that is the removal of CPU and GPU code ... and in your case that should have had no affect.
Yes other people break that compatibility with their forks since they don't give a crap about it, but since I wrote the API and have maintained it since day one, I've made sure that backward compatibility is the highest priority aspect of the cgminer API.

Hi,
first of all thanks for minepeon, it is working like a charm.


At first I was struggling to get it working, then I found out the problem was my power supply.

Maybe a stupid question, but how can minepeon access the internet without my network code?

So great software, if you find the time to do so, please implement a pooltimer(under pools, how long you have been mining one pool).

Please up your donation first  Grin

You must be using some kind of Ethernet cable which should be plugged into your router.  You don't need your router ID for this, only if you are using a WiFi USB plug like Edimax EW-7811UN 150Mbps Wireless Nano USB

Should i use the standard power supply for the Raspberry Pi
Or should i plug it into a 5v 10amp supply, to make sure it dosnt cut it because of lack of power?

Tried Google came up empty so figured I ask.

So in the past I used my pi to proxy for an ASICminer Cube out of necessity. Now having a consolidated list of all my equipments health summarized and the ease of pool control using a single worker has spoiled me. I want to point Antminer S1's at the mighty pi.  Grin

Is there a way to direct S1's to use the proxy support in minepeon and how do I configure them? Currently using bfgminer in the pi to support my other stuff.

I think using a Pi proxy with the S1's is pointless, as they run cgminer which will do stratum directly with a pool, so no proxy needed.
Also I think the rate they generate work results at would overwhelm a proxy running on a Pi.

The point wasn't to support getwork on stratum servers as the S1's aren't suffering from this issue as the blades and cubes dtd.  It's about interface and control. Minepeon IMHO is superior to the S1's interface and can consolidate equipment results. The intent in future is to also provide remote access. The ability to monitor and control multiple devices through a single user interface is beneficial enough in my mind to proxy through the pi.

Ahhh, sorry, misunderstood.
The Minepeon deals with "devices" which are not usually running other mining software, so it would either have to run a stratum-level proxy (of which I have no experience) or hook directly into the S! baldes, bypassing the on-board antminer controller, presumably with some kind of custom interface via the Pi GPIO. This might be possible but not easily/quickly achievable IMHO.
I'll keep quiet now.  Embarrassed

I've been using MinePeon 0.2.4.2 for a while now, and I've been getting some instability. Every couple of days it needs a reboot. I'm using wired ethernet. Is there anything I can do to improve my uptime? I'm using 5x Red Fury and 3x Blue Fury in two DUB-H7 hubs.
