i find that very annoying that minepeon reverts to the donate pools after a reboot. i just accidentally mined for two straight days in someones else pocket.

That is defiantly not normal!

It should ( and does in most cases) keep your pools no matter what you do to it, I suspect your SD card is a bit broken.

Re-flash (with a differant SD card preferably) and your problem will most likely go away.  In the mean time email me you hashrate and how long you hashed to neil@mineforeman.com and I will fix you up.

Hi,

in the latest release (0.2.2) all is fine when not upgrading with 'pacman -Syu', all runs smooth.

if i upgrade with pacman minepeon runs for ~10 minutes and then it doesn't respond anymore.

i use 10 block erupters with my Raspberry Pi Mod. B Rev 2.0 512 MB RAM

all is fine if you don't upgrade Smiley


Do you reboot after the upgrade?  I just want to be sure that everything was sync'ed to the disk.

 Are you using sudo shutdown -h now command. It should not do that after rebooting ?.

 Reboot or reflash ?.
I wondered about this, as I have been just pulling the plug which is probably responsible for the death of 2 of my SD cards (they were cheap).

 shut down/restart in the webui would be a good feature at some point, I know you have a long to do list and its me just being lazy really. Grin

Ahhh, this make me think your running an older version!

All of this is available in the later versions, and unfortunately the only way to get them is to re-flash with one of the latest (pacman -Suy only does Arch, not the minepeon subsystems).

It also possibly explains why your miner dies, there are quite a few library updates (libusb in particular) and a binary compiled against older versions could become unstable.

yep, upgraded, rebooted.

Just to be sure, your doing the git pull as well as the pacman?

The live update is very much in its infancy but this is all good testing stuff that I need to know.

Hey Neil, out of curiosity, how do I switch from cgminer to bfgminer (for testing/forever)?

I'm running the out of the box 0.2.2 version of MinePeon and can access the Pi vie SSH from my Mac (I am not really familiar with unix and command lines, though..)

I would never change a running system (*cough* *cough*), but I'd still like to know where in the GUI or how in the shell I could do that.

I am also wondering why the miner.php page is only accessible via "direct input" in the browser address and not like "Status", "Pools" and so on via the GUI Smiley


And btw, thanks for the work!

Thanks! And I guess to reverse my tinkering I just put in the opposite commands, right?

unfortunately not that many Wink
I use screen all the time, but a list with some more shell commands with explanations for total newbies would be nice - like "sudo shutdown -h now", "sudo reboot", how to navigate in Screen (ctrl+a+...) and so on. If there really would be someone completely new to this, he or she would not even know how to power down the RPi (yeah you could simply unplug the power..), but a sudo shutdown would be better i guess, also a "sudo wicd-curses" (for WIFI config) and so on would be useful in a comprehensive list.

Agreed.  My issue with putting together a comprehensive list though is I know all of the commands and just instinctively put them in as I need them so I tend to overlook the really simple ones that newbies need.

Bring up your miner (use ctrl-ad to hide again):
* sudo screen -r

Show the status of your miner:
* sudo systemctl status cgminer.service

Stop your miner:
* sudo systemctl stop cgminer.service

Start your miner:
* sudo systemctl start cgmine.service

Restart your miner (after you have made a configuration change):
* sudo systemctl stop cgminer.service

Find the IP address assigned you by DHCP:
* sudo ifconfig

Get a root console:
* sudo -i

Halt MinePeon:
* sudo halt

Reboot MinePeon:
* sudo reboot

Wifi configuration:
* sudo wicd-curses

..... that is all I can think of at present, feel free to add/request more and I will update the wiki.

Ok so i've got my PI and set it up no problems,, she's not mining yet cus I bought a usb3 hub and it doesn`t work with PI lol.

I was looking at adding a screen

I'm waiting for my Pi, but I was looking at getting this screen for around $30 :

http://coldtearselectronics.wikispaces.com/USB+LCD+-+LCD+System+info

Then writing a python script that pulls the hash rate, accepts, rejects, etc from the cgminer api, then write it to the screen, kind of like this setup :

http://www.gregledet.net/?p=668
... ah ... every time I've seen someone say they want to add a direct hardware device for the screen I've thought USB ... there's got to be a simple USB solution.

OK, this I have to get Smiley

... OK ebay ... paid and awaiting delivery!

I did write the whole cgminer API so ...
Expect either a script or a cgminer change soon after it arrives on my doorstep Cheesy

Edit: actually ... since it will work on ANY computer ... and I also did write the usbutils library in cgminer ... hmmmm ... I think this would be nice to have it hot-pluggable ... as a cgminer display Cheesy

Edit2: I wonder if there is a common interface how these things work (i.e. others that may exist)

Kano,

Did you get your LCD display yet? I just got mine yesterday, and already hacked up a quick script to display data from the cgminer API.

I was wondering if you completed your script yet, or have added support in cgminer? I'm sure it has more functionality than my simple attempt. lol

BTW, I got the LCD with the v1.3 firmware.  Unfortunately that version does not seem to allow absolute positioning on the display. I guess the v1.4 firmware model is the one to get, if it can be found.

As far as there being a standard interface for these type devices, I haven't seen one. It would be nice...

Easily see your cgminer status with my cgminerLCDStats app:  http://cardcomm.github.io/cgminerLCDStats/
