Enjoy it y'all, and I'll try and keep useful enhancements coming. Smiley

Thanks, I got it setup on one of my peon's last night.  Any issue if I include in in a future build (not next one but the one after that).

If you get your display before Neil has a chance to roll it into a release, you should consider installing the mod yourself. I THINK the installation instructions make it pretty easy, even for a relative newbie.

Ok, in the process of installing the LCD mod am guessing most of the new minepeon stuff was updated..

CGMiner failed to restart after Donation and I think you just may have got about 8 hrs @ 7.3G...

I have been getting strange issues in putty (windoze) where it returns something like its a read-only system on occasions.

Am using cheap SD Cards so will be of to the shop today to get a better one.

Neil is there a log file I should be looking at to diagnose?

Edit : Cardcomm - I didn't think to check the display.. Is there a line in the code to display error if CGMiner fails to restart. Would be nice  Grin

For the second consecutive day, at midnight, my pools are replaced by the 3 donation pools and stay there until I force mine @ the pools page. I have donation disabled for several days.

I'm doing a git pull every day.

99.999% it will be your SD card (it always is), you could look in;-

/var/log/messages
/var/log/debug
/var/log/kern.log

to find your problem.  In the meantime send me an address and I will return your bitcoins.  Thanks to your guys testing I think the new monitor process will be able to pick up issues like this (I am 99.999% sure it has something todo with Block Eruptors by the way)

I think this is the same issue, off memory I think under the pools table it said 'cgminer failed to restart'

I could not force mine and had to reboot.

EDIT: Send any coins to cardcomm`s  address as donation for lcd work please.

That is very odd!  With donations disabled it does not even come close to that bit of code, still PM me an address and I will fix you up.  You might want to try another SD card for a few days though.

I'm doing a git pull every day.

That may be your issue, that code is a bit buggy at the moment as I am getting ready for a release this weekend.

maybe cardcomm can update his install guide to shut the system down first...am not sure how to do this yet.

Notes on the dispay : If LSDStats is killed in anyway e.g. Pi reset, It sits there with the last stats displayed. Looks pretty but not very helpful. Would be better if it would just go blank or display an error. I don't think it is possible to get around this due to the way it works. Otherwise its pretty cool...

I have seen this behaviour on one of my test rigs.  Block Eruptor USB devices on a start (or restart) go all strange sometimes. What your seeing is devices falling off and then recovering.  They eventually sort themselves out though.

On my test peon I have a fix though the peon detects the problem and after enough attempts to get things going right the peon restarts itself.  It seems that after that they works fine (I suspect it has something to do with temperature and a reboot gives them enough of a chance to cool down).

I use -d 2 and thus the clock ticks over every 2 or 3 seconds so I know it's working Smiley

There is no problem hitting the API every 2 seconds (I have a bunch of scripts that hit each of my cgminers every 2 seconds)

As for what's on the screen if it stops ... well that's simply what was last on the screen - yes.
If it gets an error talking to the API, cardcomm has it display a red message that's pretty obvious Smiley
If the python itself crashes, well, yeah you'll see on the screen what was last put there
Putting a message up or blanking would be pointless, rather whatever was trying to do that should instead restart the python.

Thanx Kano, I'll change the refresh rate and I should be able to get the python script to run on reboot. Please don't tell me how, am gonna figure it out, I will get use to this linux stuff soon enough.  Grin

I love to be beta-tester and catch those lovely bugs. I was just commenting the fact/problem to Neil, I was not complaining about the mining for MineForeman. He deserves all the hashings MinePeon could do as donation.

I also had the "reading only" file system, that is solved with a restart. I don't have any other instability. The only one is the move from donation period to normal mining and I can't replicate the problem, as when I try to exchange between pools, with miner.php "switch to" buttons, all goes smoothly, without any errors.

southerngentuk, you can send up to 6 images to LCD's internal memory and pre-program the display to enter into "picture frame mode", when idle for more than x minutes, with the "LCD Sys Info - Images Loader.exe" program that comes with it. If the RPI stops communicating with the LCD, it then knows what to do...
