im getting my sticks today and i am trying to compile this for linux 32bit.

im running into a issue..

steps taken.

wget https://github.com/jstefanop/bfgminer/archive/bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2.tar.gz
tar zxfv bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2.tar.gz
cd bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2


when i do
./autogen.sh it says

aaron@aaron-701:~/bfgminer-bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2$ ./autogen.sh
Getting submodules...
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git


im stuck.


also why did you name the driver futurebit.c and not futurebit2.c and also why did you use the same github and not make a new one?

its going to make things really complicated since i have v1 and v2 sticks.. :/


edit i "think" i got it to compile not sure until i can test it.
i did this.

first i cloned the main branch.

git clone --branch futurebit_driver https://github.com/jstefanop/bfgminer.git

then i downloaded the v2 source
wget https://github.com/jstefanop/bfgminer/archive/bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2.tar.gz
tar zxfv bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2.tar.gz
cd bfgminer-5.4.2-futurebit2

then i copied the driver-futurebit.c from there and put it in the main branch.
cp driver-futurebit.c ~/bfgminer

and copy bwltc-commands.h
cp bwltc-commands.h ~/bfgminer

then cd into the main branch.

cd ~/bfgminer


then i ran autogen.sh
then configure CFLAGS=-O3 --enable-scrypt --enable-futurebit --disable-other-drivers
then sudo make

bad news..
the included fan and heatsink causes these to need more than single space on the hub Sad






the good news is they work
the fans are sort of loud tho.. :/

Where did you order from/how were they shipped?? This looks like the board got bent badly during shipment.

That’s the inductor casing, a cracked casing won’t cause any functionality issues, but that’s still concerning. Either something bad happened during shipment or heatsinks are being applied the wrong way.

Hey is there a way to remove default pool settings from Miner? I changed pool on text pad CONF and it saved my pool,but for some reason every time i have to turn miner off it does not save pools I set and when i turn miner back on it reverts back to default pool ?

if you are running it by the bat file the pool is in there.. you have to change that.. you cant just change the conf and still use the bat

So I got two of these in the mail today, plugged them into usb 3 ports right off my mobo and installed the driver and bfgminer launched it and it mined for a few hours. I went back and tried to up the clock from 600 to 625 and since then have had nothing but trouble. I did not touch the voltage and even lowering the clock back as low as 480 they still won't hash for more than a few minutes. I considered they may not be getting enough power from the ports, but then it doesn't make sense why they ran for a few hours on initial install. I've tried removing and reinstalling the driver and I've also tried various pools without success. It doesn't give any specific error, on initial boot I get green light then flashing amber as bfg launches, then red flashes while it works, (green light on the whole time) then the red flashes get fewer and farther between over 1 to 3 minutes and hash rate drops to zero.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I'm a gpu miner, my only experience with asics is I owned a gridseed back in the day which ended in frustration and its still sitting on the shelf only successfully used for a handful of hours in its life.

You need to turn the voltage down even for stock voltage setting. Out of the box the voltage is set to around .75, which is good for up to 800 mhz. If it stops hahshing it’s because USB port doesn’t haven’t enough power. For 600 MHz .65v position is good and that will draw under an amp which will be stable for USB 3 port.

something isnt right with the driver or something..
after all night long, one of mine stopped mining.. it shows 0 hashrate.


the red light isnt flashing on that one anymore, just a solid green light.
im using 2 of these hubs.
https://www.amazon.com/Superbpag-Portable-Charger-Transfer-Samsung/dp/B013OK10YM/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
with 3 on each one.

i tried on linux again using minera, and after about 3 or 4 minutes they all stop.. no more red lights.

This is normal, even on my test setup I have to restart them once in a while if your running multiple sticks. Not much you can do about it unless your hubs are really good. Have you turned down your voltage from stock setting since your running 600 MHz it looks like? Also try raising your memory voltage a bit and see if that helps with stability.

Im working on driver update that will auto-restart them once it detects it has stopped hashing. bfgminer is supposed to do this already, but its sick/dead/restart code is buggy.

i havent messed with the volts yet.. or overlocking.. i want to make sure they work ok first..

i did setup my rpi with minera.. it seems to be working the best so far..

it has an auto restart feature built in..

Do you know how to set up minera wirelessly? I couldn't find very detailed instructions online anywhere. Thanks!

Minera's support thread  has directions to do it.

Yes fan should start as soon as you plug in. DONT run these if the fan is not running. Make sure you plugged in cable correct and it’s plugged in all the way into the port.

I found that some of the fans were screwed on too tight. If your fans don't start, try to loosen the screws just a tiny bit.

Yea, sorry I should have the assembly instructions up by now, but trying to ship all these out first. You only need to lightly screw on the M2.5 screws to hold on the fan. If your overtighten them they will bind and not spin and vibrate louder.
