Hi Neil.
Is there or will there be GriDseed G-Blade Support in Minepeon for Litecoin on the Raspberry Pi Model B platform?

Thanks.

Regards,

Suzukii

I had minepeon back on the USB erupter days, really like it and it is a very great project.
Now I own a Bitmine coincraft desk, I believe it would work since it has a RPi in it.
However, the desk has a front 16x2 LCD panel displaying hashrate, temperature etc.
Is there a way to make it work?

Greetings, Neil.

After the minepeon update from yesterday, several options of the menu had a new letter assigned. But it is still working.

Did you forget the idea of several month ago, of displaying the LAN IP address in the Menu? Also, when can we get the bfgminer 4.0.0 version?

Thanks!  I get a lot of enjoyment out of helping the "smaller miner" out.

Now I own a Bitmine coincraft desk, I believe it would work since it has a RPi in it.
However, the desk has a front 16x2 LCD panel displaying hashrate, temperature etc.
Is there a way to make it work?

Probably, but without one on my desk it is nearly imposable for me to do it sorry.

How could I ever forget you?! Tongue

I have been a bit ill, and it has severally cut into my development time sorry.  I have been forced to cut back on my real job a bit, but hopefully my MinePeon work will be tacking up the drop in income for me (Thanks to all that donate, spondoolies-tech for sending me one of their SP10's as well as HashFast for sending me a 400 GH/s developer board).

At present I am doing some very complicated stuff at the OS level for the 0.3.0 release (out of necessity).  Using Arch Linux (or any other 'stranded distro' for that manor) leads to a lot of uncertainty with the package maintenance system that can catch the poor end user out in unfortunate ways.  To that end I am working on building an entire embedded linux OS that will improve;-

1. Maintainability
2. Stability
3. Performance
4. Portability

The idea is that one "make" will turn out images for a PC, a Virtual Machine, the BBB and the Pi.  If any manufacturers want, they can grab my code (when released) and create their own build target OR they can get me to do it for them (begging for work to supplement my reduced income Tongue).

Have you looked at OpenWrt and/or OpenEmbedded?
Not saying they're perfect or will cover your needs, but they might be worth considering if you haven't already.

Thanks for the suggestions, and yes I have.  Add buildroot to the mix and they are my three finalists.  All three work but all three have their pluses and minuses, I have been able to get my code, your code and cgminer working on all three.

Picking as clear winner is a bit of an issue though, I am kind of hoping that I will come across an 'unfixable issue' so I can choose Wink .  Do you have any preference?  As a miner developer I would certainly give you opinion a lot of weight.

I've only used OpenWrt and OpenEmbedded, so between those two, I think I prefer OE since it is based on Gentoo's Portage and uses a BASH script format (unless things have changed since I last used it about.. 8 years ago?).

On the other hand, it may be helpful to you that I maintain OpenWrt repositories for BFGMiner.
I found it a bit cumbersome to make it work with their Makefile system.
But, OpenWrt has a nice menuconfig too...

whats the maximum hashrate a Raspberry Pi can handle? I'm running 8 Chilis (30GHash each) and the whole things feels quite sluggish - i am using a Raspberry Pi 256 Model B version. is it worth overclocking or adding additional cooling?

This account was hacked & possibly sold during the period of August 1st and October 24th 2017.
Anything done or said in this period wasnt me.
Many thanks to Cyrus for his help restoring access to my account.

Depends on the devices.
Low-overhead drivers: antminer, bifury, bigpic, bitforce, cairnsmore, dualminer, erupter, getwork, hashfast, icarus, rockminer, twinfury, stratum
High-overhead drivers: bfsb, bfx, littlefury, metabank, nanofury, x6500

Note that some devices, even if low-overhead, may have hardware issues with RPi's broken USB bus, though...

I am soooo close to start doing pre releases of MinePeon 0.3.0...  would you mind waiting for a bit (or compiling your own)?  If you are really hungry for the newer versions I will put 0.3.0 aside and build/test them tonight though.

I am trying to put all of my efforts into 0.3.0.  Going fully embedded solves a lot of odd behaviour and reliability & stability is also rock steady.  The download is even going to be under 50 MB (compared to the current 480 MB).

I compiled yesterday cgminer 4.3.5. It works without any problems with my nanofury 6 and OneStringMiner (both bitfury chips) with --disable-libcurl that finally works Wink

Under development Modular UPGRADEABLE Miner (MUM). Looking for investors.
Changing one PCB with screwdriver and you have brand new miner in hand... Plug&Play, scalable from one module to thousands.
