Ebay old computer, get new one for 300€, still better.

Windows is closed source. The windows driver for those devices is closed source. To use PI you only have to plug USB it in and forget it, just get BTC.

Any ideas how to run in mac? Thanks.
BFGMiner can be compiled for Mac if you disable GPU mining, at least.
I think it's part of Homebrew now.
Do you mean without CPU mining? I compiled a very custom linked version today and it didn't compile with CPU mining but everything else (that's supported on Mac) worked fine. Which driver does the block erupter use?

CPU mining is disabled by default. I wasn't sure what the state of GPU mining was.
Block Erupter uses the Icarus driver, but you need the latest git for it to autodetect the configuration properly.

BFGMiner is much better in general - it supports nearly everything cgminer does, plus more bugfixes and enhancements. Smiley

Currently cgminer 3.1.1 supports the Block Erupter USB perfectly with the options:
 --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100
You also need to specify the USB device with a -S COM1 or a -S /dev/ttyUSB1
(and set the number 1 with the correct value)

Please be wary of other software where they don't tell you these required options or don't have a release that works with it yet.

The next release of cgminer will automatically handle it without any options required and it will also handle you being able to just plug it in while cgminer is already running.
You can also start cgminer with no devices and then plug it in and it will start mining with it.

cgminer, the original USB miner and the best.

BFGMiner doesn't require those options, just -S all (or specify the specific COM port).
The only reason there isn't a BFGMiner 3.1.0 release yet is actually because of a cgminer screwup that you probably don't even know exists.

The next release of cgminer will automatically handle it without any options required and it will also handle you being able to just plug it in while cgminer is already running.
You can also start cgminer with no devices and then plug it in and it will start mining with it.
But all this.. only if you manually install a non-standard driver for it.

More outright lies. No surprise coming from Kano.

I guess he doesn't, I only replied to LogicalUnit who asked the question Tongue
(and in my case explained cgminer usage and versions as I'm sure would be helpful to LogicalUnit)

Thank you for the replies. I guess there are mixed opinions on the topic. The reason I ask is that I will be using PeonMiner on my Raspberry Pi, which includes both cgminer and bfgminer. Now that I know both miners support the new Block Erupter hardware, I'll just have to try both -- but the plug-n-play feature of cgminer makes it very attractive. Smiley

I believe MinePeon defaults to cgminer, if I am not mistaken...

it does default to cgminer.
i tried bfgminer on day 2 of mining with 21% rejects on some cm1's, cgminer so far 0%

You make it sound like BFGMiner is some sort of original product?  Didn't you just fork his code and then now you are bashing the original devs?

BFGMiner is based on cgminer-the-GPU-miner which is based on cpuminer.
Present day cgminer is a fork of BFGMiner, created by trolls for trolling.

Question to Kano (or any other member that actually have Erupter(s)),

Can you measure the thickness of the board+sink?

Also, how wide is the board?  If you can, can you measure how much current it is pulling from the USB port?

You running it off 2.0 or 3.0 port?

Without an adapter, you cannot plug USB 1.1/2.0 devices into USB 3.0 ports.
