You were missing a dependency while compiling, I think curses but I could be wrong. Make sure you have all the dependency packages per the first post instructions and re-compile.

Thanks, I was followed Ubuntu instructions instead of Debian. I was installed missing dependencies, recompiled and it's working.

Maybe first get the HW errors to 0. Turn the voltage to 4 o`clock and see if there are new HW errors coming. If not you can increase the frequency again.

I think you got ripped off.

I've gone through all of page 1 and keep coming up with the same problem. As I said I'm really new to coding so I'm blind really as to what the commands are that I'm typing in.

Streeky - do a bit of research on "apt" an its sources list.

What that is you're trying to do is install some software. Debian and its children use apt as a package manager, which means it's a program that can be used to download and install pre-compiled software and other useful resources. It does so easily by maintaining a list of sources, which is to say servers that keep info on those packages, where to find them and how to download and install them. If a package is not found, it could be your sources list is incomplete or you could be using an old enough version that the default sources list is no longer accurate. Or for some reason you're not connecting to the internet properly.

It's not a 2Pac problem so much as an OS problem.

Did you try this?
Code:
sudo apg-get update
After that try installing the packages again.
And be sure there are no line breaks inside your command. So be careful with copy and paste.

Try https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/apt/apt-get/
It´s a good and informative wiki.

Sidehack,

Thanks for the reply and the info on "apt". As I said I'm in over my head but determined to learn. I've tred a few different tutorials on how to get my gekkos mining and they all must be out of date/in compleat (defiantly not my internet). Do you know of an up to date list of comands to get me mining?

Also dose anyone know if theres a PDF or book that lists comand line inputs and what they do?


Der-wasi,
I wasn't doing the for my first few atempts but every time for the last 5-7 times. Also used sudo apt-get upgrade -y after each update.

Which operating system do you use?
Try the newest version of raspian. The commands on post #1 should be up to date.

You can use either, which ever you are most comfortable with. I'm using Raspian ( Stretch ) with the desktop running three instances of cgminer ( 3 2pacs ) and m-minerd on three of the four CPU cores mining Magicoin (XMG.) It's all working great.

Greets.

Just got another couple of 2Pac for my collection. But getting a problem with one of them not being detected. When I plug it in, the blue LED lights up, but turns off as soon as I let go.

I.e. if I touch the heatsink, the blue LED lights up. The USB bus sees it but shows as inactive. cgminer does not detect it. The other one runs fine. I presume I have a faulty 2Pac ?

Incidentally, they run months on end without intervention.

Raspian Stretch lite is just the usual Stretch version without a desktop. I´m using it and it definitely works.

What happens if you try the faulty one alone in the hub? Does it work then?
