I just started mining with my new moonlander 2 yesterday. I currently have it directly plugged into a USB SS port. I have had to dial the frequency back to 384, since anything above that causes large amounts of HW errors. I also checked the temp and it is running around 100f. I am assuming that this is a power issue and not a defective unit but figured I would run it by the community to see if you all have experienced this before. Thanks in advance.

Yes your USB port is not providing enough power, you can also try moving the bottom pot slightly (~10 degrees) clockwise to increase the voltage and see if that has a change.

Thanks for the quick reply. Just to verify while adjusting temps should not exceed 80C correct?

Ok I now have the mem at .9 and the processor at .79 and still 450 just produces mostly errors

Whats the error %? Did you try another computer/USB port?

I tried multiple computers, and even got a power hub. After much testing I think it might be a heat issue. I don't know why I didn't notice before but the glued in heatsink is crooked and exposing the ic a bit. Also noticed when the temp hits about 112f it goes down hill real quick lol. I figure if the heatsink is at 112 that corner of the chip has to be hitting critical. Optimal for me right now is .72v on the chip and 450 for the speed. That puts me at about 2.5MH/s has rate starts higher and slows down as it gets warmer.

Well after much tuning and trial and error I humbly admit I was incorrect on all previous assumptions. It would seem that certain voltages cater to certain frequencies. .75 on cores .o on ram and 756 is running at 4.25MH/s with HW at .98 word to any other noobs, read all the words on the first page especially the tuning section.

Sigh....read the first page of this thread and the FAQ section...your anti-virus is deleting bfgminer when you unzip it.

is there a recommended clock speed to run these fanless?
all of my fans have failed on mine and at this point its too expensive to go out and buy new ones.

Anything under 600 MHZ you should be good, but you'll need to bring down core voltage as well to be safe.

Afternoon all.  I have been mining with 2 Moonlander 2's for about a year now and here lately I have been getting Segmentation fault crashes on the miners quite often.  The exact error:

Code:
[2019-10-31 11:11:59] Started bfgminer 5.4.2-38-g106390aSegmentation fault

These are running off a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4gb ram.  Originally when I first bought these they were running on a Raspberry Pi 3 b+.   They have been on the 4 version ever since the Pi 4 came out this year without any issues until recently.   Any suggestions?  I run them at 700 Mhz, have 2 artic usb fans over them as I have them also running with a set of Newpac's.  And I also have a 12" 1930's ArticAire antique desk fan blowing over the area as well.  So plenty of airflow. Room temp is currently 72 Degree's F.

Not sure what to check.  Otherwise I just reboot and it'll run again stable for a few days to a week and then it'll happen again.  


** Edit **

Well, now after reboot, removing the devices from their hub and back, full power down and restart nope.  Nothing works.  Getting Segmentation Fault every time now  Undecided

This is my first post here.

I have two Moonlander 2s, both with noisy and vibrating fans.  This seems to be an issue with many people.

Found these at Amazon.  Ball bearings, rated for 60,000 hrs service life,  They are also the same brand fan as are in my moonlanders.  They come in a five pack.

I installed two today.  Amazing difference.  Silent, almost zero vibrations.

First Time poster.

Just got my first moonlander 2 to mess around with and have run into a problem I can't seem to get around

Failed to sanity check in lowl-vcom.c windows_usb_get_string():508 is the error that keeps popping up.

any thoughts?

Sounds like some windows/usb driver incompatibility...what version of windows are you running, and are you using the latest silicon labs USB driver?

Any fixes for the:
Code:
[2019-10-31 11:11:59] Started bfgminer 5.4.2-38-g106390aSegmentation fault

Haven't seen any responses.  Just curious as now I have both miners just collecting dust, removed them completely out of my rig.  As it's getting segmentation faults on every pool.  Ran both on a Ubuntu and raspberry pi systems.  It's been running flawlessly for months 24/7 on my raspberry Pi until just recently.  Not sure why they are failing now unless this is a problem with the moon lander itself?

Have you run any updates on the Pi?
You might want to delete bfgminer and rebuild.  From some minor research it looks like segmentation faults are often from build issues, though sometimes it is from missing dependencies on the OS. So I would try an update and reboot first and if that fails start from scratch. If you used the download from Futurebit I might redownload and unzip it to a different location.

Otherwise I have no clue...

I use MiningRigRentals (MRR) to sell my hashing power when I'm not actively experimenting/using it, but I keep getting segmentation faults when MRR points to a new pool while the MLD is mining.

As a temporary fix to this, I made a bash script so that it'll restart the program if it doesn't exit with code 0 which worked BARELY 50% of the time. I've been trying to figure out why this is happening by checking the CP210x drivers, reinstalling BFGMiner and rebooting my RPI, trying different configurations, clocking down, but what I noticed is that if I don't use MRR and instead mine directly to a pool myself, there's no problem when I tell BFGMiner to mine in a different pool.

I tried using NiceHash even to see if it was just MRR, but the instant BFGMiner tries to initialize MLD, it seg faults.

May someone please point me to the right direction as to where things could be going wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks I'll try rebuilding it.  Haven't done any updates to that unit since everything has been working.  I also run several Newpacs and R606's also on the same pi 4.   I'll rebuild it into a new directory and see if that resolves the issue.  I have another Pi 4 that's currently not being used, may give it a try on it as well.  Just to rule out if something is a bit off on the rig it's currently running or not.

Thanks for the assist
