Has anyone ever tried CPU mining with a RPi or BBB?

Neil,
I was just thinking...  I don't know if it's even possible but you could use the extra CPU power to mine CPU mine able coins for your donation.  I know 1 wouldn't do much of anything but how many dls do you get a week?  a couple thousand?  Imagine 2 thousand of these mining CPUcoin for you.  That could really add up.

Just a thought...

ct1aic,
Did you add those miners over time?
Otherwise what is the point of buying so many usb miners, for that money you can better buy one big machine IMO.


Today I have to use antminer S1's 1:1 in place of USB block erupters. I'm just waiting for the 49 antminer s1 hub to come out.

MineForeman.com: Any plans of including the A1 Coincraft/Chinese A1 in minepeon? I got a 1TH miner and i know that a lot of people who own them would love to throw out the useless software that´s on the included Pi.

If I recall from looking at cgminer release notes that in 4.2 you can control it instead of using their modified version of cgminer.  I think i have all the drivers/binaries from the dd I did of the original OS.  When my next two show up I was going to test it.  Also wanted a blank slate to setup the LCD on the front.

Don't you mean U1 or U2's?  The S1's are standalone blades that run their own openWRT/CGminer combo and don't connect via USB.

There is maybe forked minepeon already in these Chinese Dragonminers. I do not know.
I could pay some BTC bounty if we get working Minepeon to replace the Chinese image. I dont have skills to make it.
There is Raspberry PI + Fancy LCD screen.

Have you got links to their repo's (I am at work and don't have time for Google).  If they have a suitable repo of their source code (or even just a patch) I could put something together.  MinePeon already has the cgminer-HEX binary that I compiled from Technobit's cgminer patches.  I could make it a button in the settings and then you are ready to rock!

I need just a little help.  I'm trying to expand the partition, and obviously doing something incorrectly.  

I'm trying to use the directions here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137934.msg2888042#msg2888042
and then found this extra info here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137934.msg4641487#msg4641487

After I try any iteration of these directions the system never comes back after the reboot before the resize.  

The one glaring difference in setup I found are that one says to create the new partition as a primary, the other as an extended.  

Both ways yield the same result.  

So I guess what I'm asking is if someone could perhaps post a new set of directions for myself, and anyone after me looking to expand the parititon on 0.2.4.6 and is stumbling.  

Here is the result I get from the initial fdisk print:
Code:
Command (m for help): p
Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 7.6 GiB, 8168931328 bytes, 15954944 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x00057540

Device         Boot     Start       End  Blocks  Id System
/dev/mmcblk0p1           2048    186367   92160   c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/mmcblk0p2         186368   3667967 1740800   5 Extended
/dev/mmcblk0p5         188416   3667967 1739776  83 Linux

Command (m for help):

Thanks in advance.

NM: Found the answer to my own question here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137934.msg4594500#msg4594500

I was searching for the term expand partition, which didn't pop that post till I started searching for partprobe hunting for answers. 

Short answer is I had to kill both 2 and 5, then recreate them 2 as an extended, 5 as a logical.  Hope this breadcrumb helps someone else find the right post.

What do they use as a controller?  Do they have a download of the image that they use or can you create me one?

I have gen1 unit. It's Raspberry PI + Control board for maximum of 6 Coincraft A1 Blades. My supplier stole my LCD unit but i'm getting a new one. This supplier propably wanted to hide the lketc.com logo.

How to overclock a Dragon 1Th unit:

Turn it off, then on again.
SSH into the pi
Locate the CGminer folder
Create a .sh , name it to whatever you want (nano Overclock.sh  <-- just a example)
Add:

Code:
sudo ./cgminer -o "1" -u 2 -p bac --no-submit-stale --tempCut 70 --real-quiet --queue 1 --cs 9 --stmcu 0 --diff 5 --api-listen --api-network --A1Pll 800

1: Keep the ", add pool adress
2: Wallet or Username, depends on which pool you use
800: Default clocksetting, you can push it to 850Mhz but no more.

I´m currently working on locating the, what i think is, modified Adafruit python script for the LCD and the next thing on my checklist is to locate the modified drivers for the Chinese A1 chip. My "plan" is to send ´em over to Mineforeman and modify the script so we can have a custom MinePeon for the Dragon units  Grin

 Grin

If it's any help I can clone the MicroSD card for whole RaPi bootable card.

This is the Taobao shop of company who is making these miners. I do beleave they are selling SDcards with preinstalled software. I dont know any repos of any download bases to obtain the software. They claim new revisios are supporting OTA software updates. I have not yet obtained new units.

Taobao has banned mining machines sales but they can sell accessories.

That may put the kibosh on the whole thing.  Even though the software is based of GPL stuff (cgminer) it may have propitiatory code in it.  It may violate the cgminer license even but it is  it is a tangle that I don't wish to enter without clarification.  Technically they should be releasing their stuff but IANAL (nor do I wish to be).

See if you can find further clarification, I will see what I can find as well.

MinePeon has been ported!  For now it is just for the BeagleBone Black ( http://beagleboard.org/Products/BeagleBone%20Black ) and it is very Alpha but it appairs very stable.

I have started a new thread for the Alpha testing over here;-

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=528298.0

You can also find often lively discussions on the MinePeon forums;-

MineForman, did you ever receive your Gridseed to play with yet? I'm sure you've been busy, just wondering if you were thinking about giving it some time. Grin

Neil,
I will upload the bulk of the install but the only thing I can find is the A1 code that is now implemented in the latest CGMiner.  I have 2 more units that I will be running from the Houston so I do plan on trying Minepeon on one.  I just checked on another install of the latest Minepeon (you may have an updated version now) but 4.0.1 contains the A1 chipset features.

If I cannot get it to compile I will upload it for you to look over but as far as I can tell with these units that they were running CGMiner 3.9 on Raspbian which did not have support at the time.

Yep, I have a Gridseed AND a dualminer on my desk! 

Now I have the BeagleBone Black Alpha image out (people have been waiting) that is next on my hit list.  I have also been sent an Avalon2 by a user that is having issues with and that needs attention as well though.  MineForeman.io (server-mode for MinePeon) also need some attention as well as MinePeon X86/64.....  I also need to find some time for my real job so I can continue eating Tongue .

Neil

P.S. Would anyone be interested an a group buy for Gridseed's?  We could get some at a good price and you could support MinePeon (and me eating) at the same time.

Oh!  I have been so busy I lost track of that (I did know, I just brain faded).

I will compile in support and push it up to the repo's.  Hopefully I can do it tonight so get ready with 0.2.4.6, all you will need to do is ssh in and hit f to update cgminer.  Does it require and udev rules you know of?

Found them, con is onto it as always;-

I will add them to MinePeon, when you ssh in do a g to update them as well.
