I'm struggling to solo mine pointing my MinePeons to my remote wallet...  won't go into it, but I've tried a lot of things without success. I'd like my next attempt be to actually compile a wallet on MinePeon and try soloing from the same machine instead of remotely....  anyone done this? Anyone know the dependencies for a standard coinname-qt build?

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.

They are surprisingly kludge to work with as well, for an application like this I have two requirements;-

* Good support for a timestamp series.
* Dynamic amount of series.

Timestamping is not too bad, you do have to do a bit of working around it bit it does the job but in order to add a series you need to redo the javascript part.  Not ideal, with highcharts if you point it at data with multiple series (mining devices in this case) it just displays multiple lines.

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".

To get all the features I would want to use I would need the Highstock license and not the Highchart one.  And because it displays "customer data" it would be the expensive license.

With last version of 0.3.0, the old date problem is there again. After 1 minute, the RPI still doesn't have the correct date.

Quote
# date
Thu Jan  1 00:01:14 UTC 1970
# date
Thu Aug 21 20:02:22 UTC 2014
#

Also, if we select the default bfgminer option and save, bfgminer will never start again, as it isn't at the location of the command:

Quote
#!/bin/bash
sleep 10
/usr/bin/screen -dmS miner /opt/minepeon/bin/bfgminer -S all -c /opt/minepeon/etc/miner.conf

Can someone please post here the Miner Startup Settings that comes with the image? I can't find where bfgminer is...

UPDATE:

Forget... I reinstalled the image in the SD. The new location is...

Quote
/usr/bin/bfgminer

Off topic I know, but the Arch Linux repo version is still at 4.5.0, any way (or need) to update to 4.7.0?

[ETA] OK now 4.7.0-1 is now available via pacman.

Does this support the Monarchs yet? I cannot get my monarch to work on both minepeon or ubuntu. Not sure what I am doing wrong here:

With minepeon:



With ubuntu:

BitForceSC detect (3:3) failed to initialise (incorrect device?)
USB init, open device failed, err -3 you don't have privilege to access BAS device 3:3

I'm curious as well. Running an entire PC just to mine with a Monarch feels so 2013. So much for that .7w/GHs that these machines are supposed to have.

I might just as well break out my BFL Singles and USB sticks and hook them up and get them running again too since the PC is already on. Lol.

If you check the bfgminer thread (i.e. this https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=626361.msg6958527#msg6958527) then you would see that the BFL Monarch support was added in version 4.0.0. of bfgminer. So (at least with minepeon) you need to update from your old version of bfgminer. You don't say which version you use under Ubuntu.

I was running minepeon for a while whitout any problems. But started today it's behaving very strange. I have two pool configured in the miner.conf file and also on the web interface. But on the status page there is one pool extra!! And it's mining there most of the time! Is this a hack or something, and how can i fix it? Below the pool settings displayed on the status page:

I'm not against the raspberry i have one , but i don't see why its so slow at times wouldn't you just be better off using a mobile phone etc to control it all i played with one for hours and really saw no reason why the big deal a raspberry over a PC or phone,  when  a good ole windows or Linux PC or  phone can do better . i even asked the dev they told kind of told me  they are some what out dated . ( raspberry that is ) . + side its a very nice learning tool.

I am not a Raspi-boi, but they are ridiculously cheap and use next to no power compared to a "good ole" PC, whatever OS it is running.
Getting USB miners recognised and connected under Windows is a game of chance, whereas Minepeon has accepted all of mine immediately.
I am running miners on both a Raspi and a Epia Mini-ITX Linux box (Arch Linux/bfgminer on a 900 MHz CPU), I haven't really noticed either being particularly slow - what sort of slowdown are you seeing? Web interface, bfgminer text display...?
As for using a mobile (smart) phone to control your miner.. well if you have one to spare then you're lucky - but it's a little difficult to imagine running a miner controller on one (though you can actually mine with the CPU).

WEbb or GUI  part its so slow CPU  uses goes up to 100 % fast etc I've  update everything with putty I'm not against its a really nice idea i just don't  see it working for me . i do like the idea of a very small PC monitoring and controlling it all. but i won't give up but also won't go out of my way and spend hours tiring to run some thing that in the end needs a major update to our times four cores etc or a way to add more  memory , upgrade the CPU etc etc  .. but I won't give up on it just don't see it right now . btw I'm  waiting for the new MinePeon to come out that supports the B+ version or ver 2 not the beta MinePeon. maybe then . seems the 2.4.6 there is no  network or USB acess yet that i saw beta has it . much  rather use  the finally version unless i missed the new one some place ..

or I'm just doing some thing wrong i have not discovered yet and I have done a lot of  research and goggling on it with no luck My USB sticks with miner on them run faster and better then this did .
 
I'm not talking the ant U#  or bitfury etc with a USB hub.  with the software on a USB stick but there's that problem again a PC .

 i have yet to have any issue setting up any antminers u # or bitfurys etc in windows it's when i try to combine one that uses a diff driver then the  other uses that it starts to be a bear but i do it . why i want to use this  as you said no issue setting up the miners. so I'll wait and see how the next release of Minepeon comes to gather.

as for power Ive never really had a problem with power in my house being to high, bill wise but if i  can avoid using a PC for anything more then gaming or email or web searches hell yea  why not  i was hoping for this and anything  saved is all ways Anything earned  

well any way I'm off


Happy mining

By any chance are you getting errors like these? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=626361.msg8703962#msg8703962

I am having to run mine from a windows 7 machine because my linux ones keep crashing.

After some troubleshooting, it seems Morblias's root issue is a corrupt USB packet which the Monarch firmware is failing to recover from without being reinitialised.

Nasser, it all starts when a WX gets a "ERR:SIGNATURE" - from that point on, all commands are considered invalid.
Edit: Or more accurately, it appears as if "ERR:INVALID COMMAND" is just being flooded back forever, with or without another command...

Yes, I'm getting the exact same errors with MinePeon/rPi and then BFGMiner stalls. Sames errors on Win 8.1 but continues to mine.
