I run 4 R-Boxes from one Minepeon. They get testy from time to time, but for the most part it works fine. I place the blame more on the R-Boxes than the Minepeon since I never got them to work under Windows, Zadiq drivers and all.

Anyway, you will need to update bfgminer (or cgminer if you prefer it) to a more recent release as the ones included in Minepeon do not support the R-Box.

Edit: Forgot to add in the original post that I updated the bfgminer to 4.3. Minepeon includes 3.1 if I'm not mistaken and I believe that 3.1 doesn't support the R-Boxes.

Anyone here have any experience with cgminer 4.3.5 on MinePeon 0.2.4.6? I compiled it from git, and it works brilliantly with my 3 x Zeus Hurricane X3's...  but I now want to add a 4th Zeus, but a different model. This means instead of specifying chip count and frequency globally, and having the driver detect my devices automatically, I now need to specify each device individually and use the --zeus-options switch to specify the correct chips and frequencys.  What is working currently with my 3 Hurricanes X3's is:

Code:
/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer-zeus --scrypt --failover-only --api-listen --api-port 4028 --api-allow 127.0.0.1 --zeus-chips 64 --zeus-clock 328 --scan-serial zeus:auto -o <my pool stuff, not relevant to this>

I've been trying to manually specify each miner in preparation for adding a Lightning X6, but none of the following work. I've been following the guidance from the github page for this version here: https://github.com/dmaxl/cgminer

Code:
/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer-zeus --scrypt --failover-only --api-listen --api-port 4028 --api-allow 127.0.0.1 --scan-serial /dev/ttyUSB0 --scan-serial /dev/ttyUSB1 --scan-serial /dev/ttyUSB2 --zeus-options /dev/ttyUSB0,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB1,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB2,64,328 -o <my pool stuff, not relevant to this>

Adding in "zeus:" but shouldn't be necessary as I compile with ONLY zeus support:
Code:
/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer-zeus --scrypt --failover-only --api-listen --api-port 4028 --api-allow 127.0.0.1 --scan-serial zeus:/dev/ttyUSB0 --scan-serial zeus:/dev/ttyUSB1 --scan-serial zeus:/dev/ttyUSB2 --zeus-options /dev/ttyUSB0,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB1,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB2,64,328 -o <my pool stuff, not relevant to this>

Trying to use the Auto scan in conjunction with --zeus-options
Code:
/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer-zeus --scrypt --failover-only --api-listen --api-port 4028 --api-allow 127.0.0.1 --scan-serial zeus:auto --zeus-options /dev/ttyUSB0,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB1,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB2,64,328 -o <my pool stuff, not relevant to this>

Instead of using /dev/ttyUSBx I've also tried using the device ID in the form of bus:device from the output of "lsusb":
Code:
/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer-zeus --scrypt --failover-only --api-listen --api-port 4028 --api-allow 127.0.0.1 --scan-serial zeus:auto --zeus-options --zeus-options 001:006,64,328;001:007,64,328;001:008,64,328 -o <my pool stuff, not relevant to this>

Using -S instead of --scan-serial:
Code:
/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus /opt/minepeon/bin/cgminer-zeus --scrypt --failover-only --api-listen --api-port 4028 --api-allow 127.0.0.1 -S /dev/ttyUSB0 -S /dev/ttyUSB1 -S /dev/ttyUSB2 --zeus-options /dev/ttyUSB0,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB1,64,328;/dev/ttyUSB2,64,328 -o <my pool stuff, not relevant to this>


I end up with a bizarre "screen" behaviour too.... basically I get 3 dead screens called "zeus"...  so something bizarre is being triggered with this.

Sorry for the gratuitous use of the CODE tags...  but I personally like the simplicity of being able to copy and paste in Notepad++ to analyse...  little easier than a thread post sometimes.

The August version works just fine on the PI B+.

I keep getting conflicted reports about this... I have one now I just need the time to set it up with a miner.

From now on I am fully on MinePeon, so please let us know when donation will start work, so we all can turn it on.  Wink

Will do... priories though Wink .  The method used in 0.2.1 or so above works 100% but I have yet to even open it up in the test releases.

Neil,

Is there any way that Minepeon could support mining both BTC and LTC at the same time? (like Multiminer).
I suspect that I can manually start a second instance of bfgminer with the --scrypt option, but it would be cool to be able to manage it all at once via Minepeon.

Again congratulations for your excellent work!

Just working on a new test image that should fix most of those issues... No donate as of yet but both the status and pools page are fully functional.  The settings page is 90% complete and the plugins page loads (no test past that).

It will be called MPRPI20140804.img.gz and will be available in the test area (http://minepeon.com/img/testing/).

Just as a warning, the server code is starting to make it's appearance in this release.  The eventual outcome of this is that you will be able to go to https://mineforeman.io/ to manage your mining... at present all it does is erroneously tell you your mining rig is out of date though Wink .

Neil

As usual, I don't know what to do with the image. As a nullity in Linux, I tried to use Win32DiskImager.exe with the .img of last version, but of course the RPI doesn't start... Not a full SD image...

Did you run SDFormatter on the card before writing the image with Win32DiskImager?
Have you got the latest stable version of Win32DiskImager? I used version 0.9.5 and it worked fine for me. However the RPI did not start on the first try, so I unplugged it, removed/resinserted the SDcard and then it started just fine.
Beware that your RPI might change its IP address when you change to a new version, it is best to give it a reserved address in your router so that it always uses the same IP.

Thanks, Clumpco.

Ok, with SDFormat and then Win32DiskImager, I could do it and I have now my RPI+ working with 15 BFL's and 3 USB BlueFury, using the 4 USB ports.

At the same time?  eek!

These low power devices are cool but there is just not enough CPU resources to host too many mining instances.  Each mining instance can host nearly unlimited hashrate though, but that is if you keep it to only 1 mining instance.

My solution would be to spend another $35 to upgrade your rig's cpu and memory (i.e. buy another one) and have that run your SCRYPT miners.  No point putting all of your egg's in one basket and all.

Neil

I meant, that it does what it was designed for, however this hash rate under devices really annoys my eyes.  Cool

I gave up trying to get my single Pi to run 2 different models of Zeusminers....  I bought a new B+ and ended up updating the firmware of MinePeon 0.2.4.6 using rpi-update, then cloning my B image. It runs perfectly on a B+!

Any reason you are going this route instead of improving your already existing MobileMiner support? There are many features MinePeon could be using (easily), but is not (such as switching pools, switching coins, etc).

What I am doing is just an alternative to MobileMiner.  Having said that, I would love to have MobileMiner support for pool switching etc but the author of the MobileMiner plugin does not support it (yet).

I also still have a wired idea that one day MinePeon will become my full time job.  At the moment, with the current feature set, the public have spoken and it seems I must do better Tongue !  (I will never make donations compulsory though)

I'd be happy to give any and all assistance. I'm not a PHP developer but the MobileMiner API is super simple REST calls (documented at http://www.mobileminerapp.com/#api). If you or anyone else wants to pick up the PHP addon I'd be happy to assist.

There's also some Python implementations available as well that have been updated recently. They may be an easier starting point? There's several scripts available at http://www.mobileminerapp.com/#miners

Again - always happy to help if there are any questions. Just give a shout.

That would be cool, I am not there yet but I will diffidently be hitting you up for assistance.

I should explain a bit better what I am hoping to achieve with the mineforeman.io api.  It is not so much of a "Fully fledged cloud mining platform" but more of an api.  It will do basic things like adding/removing pools and switching and stuff but what I am heading for is more something that people can use to control their devices programmatically.

I was kind of hoping that it would enable OTHER people to develop the value added pay for stuff like mobile miner, I was just making it possible to work.

Anyway, if anyone is interested, a new version was squeezed out a few days ago and you can download if for the Raspberry Pi or Beagle Bone Black from;-

http://minepeon.com/img/testing/

It is 'almost there'.  Authentication is working, donations are 100%, and it talks to the api quite nicely (go to https://mineforeman.io/ to have a sneak preview, basic graphing to come when I settle on a graphing library).  API writes disabled and not implemented yet.

As always, donations and the api can be turned off on the settings page but if people can at least leave the api on it will really help with development/testing.

So, version    "MPBBB20140815-B-0.3.0-PR2.img.zip" doesn't boot up on my PI.
However "MPRPI20140815-R-0.3.0-PR2.img.zip" works superb. Only hash rate column shows 30% for my AMU devices, all BFL is 100% correct. If I check average speed on pool's website in 1h intervals, whole my set up works on 100%. I left donation tuned on and will check tomorrow if it worked and switched back to my workers.
Thank you MineForeman.com  Wink

Now testing MPRPI20140815-R-0.3.0-PR2 - api looks to be working fine and I will leave it turned on. Weekly, Monthly and Yearly hashrates just show the png file name, maybe they need to have at least one data point before they show?
Donations turned on, how can I tell if they are working?
Great work dude!

[ETA] After about half an hour I got a point on the weekly chart and the others appeared! Question answered...

No one ever reads instructions (I certainly don't)... on the bottom of the download page!!!;-

MPBBB = BeagleBone Black
MPRPI = Raspberry Pi

I just had a brain flash though and move them into separate directories Wink .  I hope that helps.

Thanks for that, keep an eye on https://mineforeman.io/ and you will start to see information populate (as well as graphs) as I add it.

The security is rather brutal though it will only allow you see anything if you are in the same location as your miner.  2 factor authentication will be required if you want to see anything while not in the same physical location but it is not implemented yet.

Brutal security is far better than weak security!

Still don't know if the donation works, (currently set for 13 minutes at 18:00 CEST).

True, very much defeats the purpose of "Remote Access" if you have to be sitting beside the device though Smiley .

Still don't know if the donation works, (currently set for 13 minutes at 18:00 CEST).

Working 100%, if you want to test it add add this pool;-

Address = stratum+tcp://stratum.btcguild.com:3333
User = MinePeon_Donate
Pass = MinePeon_Donate

Within a minute the MinePeon will realize it should not be there and delete it!

Charting is proving to be a problem, I have highstock working and it looks great but the developer license is $780.00 USD.  Still, from what I am reading it will allow anyone who used the MineForeman.IO code to use it, no matter what server they are running it on.

I will think about it as I do some other stuff.

Yes, it was deleted so apparently it works.

As far as the graphs are concerned I was going to suggest the Google Charts Api since the simpler Google Chart Tools look like they are going to be retired in 2015.
If I were you I would contact Highstock and ask about the Hichchart license, it appears to be only $80 for a single web page that is not considered as a "web application".
