Wait, really? I thought Raspberry Pi had hardware issues with HID device O.o

Yeah, go figure...

Every distro I tried barfed with raw access.  I was quite surprised to see it work myself.  I am just running a few tests but it seems that all of the "USB Weirdness" has despaired.

Hi Neil
A Pi that works properly, then software that's portable.  Roll Eyes
You need to increase your fees a few points, then this could become your "Day Job"   Grin

I'm looking to have a good operating system for datacenter operations for miners that need a raspberry pi, there are certain defaults that I would want to tweak so that I can integrate it better with a deployment scripting system that I built.

Cool, I will help however I can.  Don't suppose I can convince you to leave the donation scripts in Tongue .

Probably not since I usually don't own the miners myself Tongue but there are some features I would like to try and add which I'll try and pull request. Features related to networking such as GUI IP address settings etc.

Yea I saw that, I assume it would require a new build of minepeon

Probably not. They said it's just a rearrangement/refinement of components, not a new build. They added a few more header pins to the GPIO and went to microSD instead of full SD and reduced overall power consumption. And most importantly to us, they increased the number of USB ports. It's expected that all the software will continue to function normally since there is no actual architecture change.

Sounds good on paper, but who knows once they get out in the field.

Still only usb2 but now with 4 ports

The issues may still be there.


Mineforeman has some usb fixes in his universal release of MinePeon (coming soon to a Pi near you). Have a read back in this post 2 or 3 days ago.

You can download it if you want from here;-

There are still a lot of things not working in the new OS build bit it seems to have fixed a lot of the USB issues.

I would be interested if the brave among you would test it for me.

I've been running 0.2.4.6  for a few days now.  I've only had to reboot once.  The status UI is shaky for some reason I think because its constantly refreshing but as far as functionality its solid.  Is there anything in particular you want tested?

I just did a fresh install of the new minepeon. When i start i get [FAILED] Failed to start dhcpcd on eth0. It continues to where i can login but when i check for the ip i gets 127.0.0.1 so it gets no network connection and i can't use the webinterface/ssh. What do i have to do to get this working?

I will try to fix that in the next release, it is because of that green arrow.

You probably cannot test much if the DHCP does not work Wink .

I am using busybox for DHCP in that image.  I will tweek things to see if I can make a difference in the next release.

Any chance of getting an updated build of what ever version your on on the img folder?

Also just to make you aware incase you dont, the plugins menu was not working and cgminer booting on start was not either.

Working on it now, as you know it is alpha stuff and I am experimenting with the init system.  The one you have now is using systemd and I am working on putting some out using the traditional busybox init.

Systemd had a lot of advantages, it monitor's processes, had exemplary hardware handling, all sorts... it is also very complex but that is the way Linux seems to be heading these days.

Init is old and stable but it does not have ANY hardware handling and if a process dies.. it just dies.

Switching between the two is a bit of a process, something you will never want to do on a production system so I am taking my time to make sure I get it right when I decide what system to use for minepeon 0.3.0.

Anyways, the beaglebone init image is compiling now and the raspberry one is next in the queue...  providing that the compiler does not turn out a pile of slag (it happens) I will image them up and put them up in http://minepeon.com/img/testing/ tomorrow.

FWIW, init-ng does everything important systemd does, but without the insanity... Wink

Since your here.... Can I pick your brain a bit.

When your compiling a kernel for mining do you select much more than;-

Code:
Device Drivers  --->
HID support  --->
[*]   /dev/hidraw raw HID device support
USB HID support  --->
[*] /dev/hiddev raw HID device support
[*] USB support  --->
<M>     USB Modem (CDC ACM) support
<M>   USB Serial Converter support  --->
[*]   USB Generic Serial Driver
<M>   USB Serial Simple Driver
<M>   USB CP210x family of UART Bridge Controllers
<M>   USB FTDI Single Port Serial Driver  

?

I don't have most USB miners but that covers the ones I have, are there any more modules you would recommend?

Neil

Probably at least want the usbfs stuff so libusb-based drivers work.

I just registered to let you know.

The latest version (MPRPI20140711.img.gz) works superb on Raspberry Pi B+, picks up ethernet and mines within 15 seconds.
I know it is beta, but perhaps you want this to be mentioned.
Few things if you want to fix it:
1. doesn't show temp of the devices. Cry
2. plugins tab not working.
3. mining only at 35% of total possible hash rate, (maybe it is lack of power on usb port Huh, will check properly tomorrow)

I also have deleted your pools and workers and now I see that it is great system and I would like to donate 1h of my mining time. Will donate option still work?

Thanks.

That is great to know, I have a B+ on the way and I suspected it would work but it is good to have it confirmed.

1. doesn't show temp of the devices. Cry

Do your devices have temperature probes? (Most don't)

2. plugins tab not working.

No, I have put 0 effort into getting them to work with the new alpha though. 

Do people use plugins by the way?  Unfortunately since I install no spyware on MinePeon I have absolutely no idea how meany people use MinePeon,  or even what they use on it if they do, for all I know there are only 10 users Wink .  Perhaps in the next versions I should have one of those "Send anonymous usage information back to MinePeon"  options (opt in).

3. mining only at 35% of total possible hash rate, (maybe it is lack of power on usb port Huh, will check properly tomorrow)

99.999% chance it will be your powered hub.  Some miners also have tuning options you might want to look at (you don't mention what miners you are using).

I also have deleted your pools and workers and now I see that it is great system and I would like to donate 1h of my mining time. Will donate option still work?

Nope, in those images donation is not working.  It is fairly far down the TODO list because it is probably the least used feature Tongue .  I do thank you for the thought though.

Thanks.

Your very welcome.

Neil
