Last I knew as of a few months ago the auto restart still was not ported over to the Linux ARM V2 tar download which is needed for the pi., or am I missing something?


I am using RPi with latest bfgminer precompiled binary, and it works perfectly. Auto restart of faulty sticks is there.

As soon as I'm done with the Apollo pre-order I will give some love to the Moonlanders. I have a bunch of updates queued for the driver and will be releasing a new version in the next month hopefully.

Thanks for your reply. Is there anything I need to do to activate the auto restart? or will it do it automatically with the latest release?

Is it really possible? I will follow carefully

What are you using to power them? Maybe you don't have enough current to run that high a frequency. Do they run OK at a lower frequency?

Regarding this, have you seen https://github.com/luke-jr/bfgminer/issues/763 ?.
I think my problem has been solved. Just letting you know so you can merge that so others that had that problem don't have to anymore  Wink

LOOK AT THE LABEL--

Run a Google search on the model number on the label.  This is a generic suggestion, it is how I find replacement fans of any type.  Read carefully in the result descriptions so to match amperage, RPMs, bearing type, etc.       --scryptr

There is a lot of info in this thread about the fans, you just need to find it.
jstefanop was going to put upgraded ones on his website but I don't see them yet.

I LOOKED AT THE LABEL.  I was hoping someone else had some experience and insight that would help rather than asking me to do a google search.  Anyone can do that.  Crazy thought - create a community of Moonlander users that share ideas and experiences! 

Also, I did a search and didn't find much.

PERHAPS JSTEFENOP WILL ANSWER--

In my experience, finding replacement fans is done with a search.  Measure the fan and do a more generic search.  Or, a miner could perhaps PM jstefanop for a precise source.       --scryptr

before replacing the fans, carefully take them apart by removing the rubber o ring from the shaft under the sticker and use some lithium grease on the bearing..
i did mine and now they are completely silent and been going for months.


Thanks for the tip! ordering some grease now, hopefully that does the trick. my only fear is that if it does, i'll start buying more moonlanders hahaha

These are sleeve bearing fans so they do need to be greased up once in a while. A bit of machine oil should do the trick. (like mentioned above you can unscrew the fan and get to the sleeve bearing by pulling back the sticker on the back of the fan.

I will also be listing fan replacement at shop.futurebit.io at my cost + shipping which will be under $5. If you want something that will last longer I would go with a dual ball bearing 25mm 5v fan which some people have listed here before. Of course these can get rather pricey.



Maybe you would consider putting the ball bearing fan on the website as an upgrade?


Thats a good idea...ill see if I can source some for cheap.


Any update on this??  Thanks!!

Per my previous post, I did search.  Either my search criteria was bad or I just missed it - Which is why I asked in the first place.....

I have 1 Moonlander 2 and it works fine on my Mac running macOS V. 10.14.1, thanks.

I ordered another but not sure how to configure the port assignments on the command line. The current ML2 is on its own USB port and the one coming will be on a separate one as well - until I get a powered USB hub. The current ML2 info from the System Information app is:

USB 3.0 Bus:

  Host Controller Driver:   AppleUSBXHCISPT
  PCI Device ID:   0xa12f
  PCI Revision ID:   0x0031
  PCI Vendor ID:   0x8086

FutureBit Moonlander 2:

  Product ID:   0xea60
  Vendor ID:   0x10c4  (Silicon Laboratories, Inc.)
  Version:   1.00
  Serial Number:   ec72e2ae44cee611bad3a7bc30f55f2b
  Speed:   Up to 12 Mb/sec
  Manufacturer:   FutureBit
  Location ID:   0x14200000 / 4
  Current Available (mA):   500
  Current Required (mA):   100
  Extra Operating Current (mA):   0

So how does that translate into a port # for the "start-moonlander" command line?

you don't need too, the stock startup scrypt is configured to search for all Moonlanders attached to USB ports, so it will just show up as a second device when you start it up.

For future reference for Macs if you want to specify a certain moonlander it will be under /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART*  where * is the number assigned to the Moonlander.

If you want to search for it system profile unfortunately does not show this, so you have to open terminal and do

ls /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART*

Can anyone please give an example of running a cron job for BFGminer on RPI to close and reopen every hour.

i have a sh file with this in

#!/bin/bash
./bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:20460 -u xxx.miner1 -p miner1,d=128 -S ALL --set MLD:clock=600

Any help for a Linux noob would be great, a lot of people i know with RPI are having issues with the moonlanders randommly just hash at 0 mh/s until the software is restarted.

Kind Regards

so something like this could work.
* 1 * * * killall -9 bfgminer

to make your life easier tho just use minera
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=596620.0

it has the option to do what you want internally.

one thing tho you have to expand the img to the full size of the sdcard you can do it in the rpi utils really easy.
