Is there a way to enable the automatic restart in the pi/arm version of the miner? Running four MLDs on a pi and eventually one MLD will declare “SICK” and “Idle” and dropping hash rate, works fine on windows and restarts the MLD but the pi version doesn’t seem to restart the MLD

Also, using anything above 600 on the pi is very unstable (sometimes MLDs fail to start or drop hashrate quickly) however running on windows on my laptop everything is fine using 700+, could it be because the pi is USB2 and the hub I am using is USB3?




Do you have the bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2-beta2 driver?
some hubs are not compatible with pi you can search here to find what others have.
I have TP-LINK UH720 is about 50w and it works fine on 796mhz with 0.5% HW about 4.5mhz with stock clock 0.75v 2 miners running on rasbian stretch.

I downloaded bfgminer_5.4.2-futurebit2_linux_armv6.tar.gz from github which I assume has the correct driver?

That is the bfgminer software ... you need to set up a driver first as well.

For Linux, you don't need to install a separate driver, right? It's supposed to be included in the kernel.

Don't know.

I figured since they had a driver download listed for Linux that their might be something to it.

Yeah the driver is already included in the kernel Smiley

After much thread searching and lurking I found that the Rpi USB is crap, and that it hates anything above USB2 (even hates some USB2) and a fix is to force the Rpi to only use USB1 by adding “dwc_otg.speed=1” to “cmdline.txt”.

After adding this (running 4 MLD on a orico 10 port USB3 hub with Rpi3) everything seems to be working fine Cheesy I can now go 700+ and so far seems stable, will post back later once it’s had a good run to confirm

Hopefully this will help others having the same problem on a pi

This thread pointed me in the right direction:

This seems to have solved it, it’s been more than 16 hours now and it’s still up and running, much more stable and no drop in hash rate (other than expected minor fluctuations) Cheesy

Hi, can someone please tell me step by step how to set this up on NOOBS (Linux) on raspberry pi 3B. i AM USING A POWERED usb hub. My problem is the (driver download) seems just to contain BFGminer not the driver.

Many thanks for the help!

I followed guide made by Astrali and had no issues:

Any chance someone can write up a step-by-step guide for getting these working on a Raspberry Pi 3B? I'm a Linux novice and most of what I see assumes a certain level of know how. I was hoping to set it up wirelessly on Minera, but at this point I'm so confused I'll take what I can get... Thanks in advance!

so you need the a foolproof copy n paste "just get it to work" description?

i'll write a short version for you that is most probably not perfect - but will most probably work.

Many thanks It helped loads but when I get to start it so. (./start_moonlander2.sh) it says no such file found or directory.

Also on the very first step it says Unable to locate package libcur14-openssl-dev

Anyone know why or how to fix

Thanks again.

I tried the first command and have no issues:

Well, this is above my knowledge.
Only idea I have is whether you performed system update and upgrade? (sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade)

If still not working then you'd better ask Astrali for help.

EDIT: see this

...

2) When I try and execute the script on a Pi3 it says:

Code:
./bfgminer: error while loading shared libraries: libjansson.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

EDIT: I fixed this with running the following:
Code:
sudo apt-get install autoconf autogen libtool uthash-dev libjansson-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libusb-dev libncurses-dev git-core

I don't think so, apparently there's something wrong or mising in your system. If the above mentioned commands aslo not working then I have no idea how to fix it. Sorry.

So I decided to add some command line options to my start file that significantly increased the stability, slightly increased the hash rate, and significantly decreased the HW on my old Gridseed Blades, with a few changes.  Lo and behold, the same effect was had on my wonderful Moonlander 2's.  I am running 17 of them at the moment on some pretty good hubs.  I saw a stability increase of a day or so, hash rate increase of 5% and 50% reduction in HW!!!.  Not sure what all of the settings do but hey it really seems to make a difference.  I also always launch Bfgminer with full Admin privileges on Windows, the same effect was had on the Pi 3.

C:\moonlander\bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2-win64\bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u worker.1 -p 1,d=4096 -S MLD:all --set MLD:clock=600,baud=23040,chips=1,modules=2,usefifo=0,hotplug=17,thread-concurrency=50000,lookup-gap=0,gpu-threads=1

Cheers and Happy mining
