I'm seeing note now, MLD 7: ASIC has stopped hashing, attempting to restart.

It does this several times before the message goes away. The ASIC typically has the lower hash rate, so maybe this will give me a boost overall in terms of hashrate.

New driver release is out, sorry for the delay and thanks for being patient. I added some last minute debugging code to better help people with issue and rule out any hardware problems. The compile binaries include the big restart fix, so these should technically hash forever without needing any manual restarts (as long as the power supply is semi-stable and you haven't really screwed up the voltages).

Let me know if the binaries run fine on respective systems...might have mis-compiled something while trying to keep track of every architecture  Undecided

Perfect, It was doing awesome on windows-10 x86 ....  Cheesy

Ok Astrali, how do I replace the old driver with this new one?  Grin

Just stuck the new driver on my Rasp Pi 2 and it's working fine!

If you're seeing a lot of "restarting" messages, your settings aren't quite working. I did more adjusting to the voltages ans now have it running at a steady 5.3 Mh/s. I'm not sure about temps but when I touch it, it doesn't immediately burn me.

I should probably get a thermometer...

Anyway, thanks jstefanop for your awesome work and dedication!

So this is a noob question, but I'm pretty new to mining with BFGMiner.

BS is Best Share, right? If it says 21, but the log reports an accepted for 71m/27m, shouldn't best share be 71?

Or does the m mean something other than "mega" like it would in cgminer?

Yeah, I confused scrypt with cgminer SHA256 values.

71m is the same as 0.071. So, 21 is a greater value than .071. m means milli (1/1000th).

27m is the same as .027 if you're converting it to SHA256. So, 21 is a greater value than .027. m means milli (1/1000th).

Big M like 3.03M I think means million (as in network difficulty of LiteCoin).

Thanks! That helps a lot. Would be awesome if I was getting 126M shares instead of 126m shares Smiley

No its 21 SHA256 shares which are 2^16 larger than scrypt shares. bfgminer was coded for bitcoin originally so this was never updated. I should probably update bfgminer's front end to differentiate between scrypt and SHA256 shares visual wise, but thats something for when I have spare time...which I have zero of these days :/

71m/27m is "milli" shares i.e. .0071/.0027 * 2^16 ~ 465/177 scrypt shares

I remember cgminer used to say the same thing when mining with my GPUs back in 2014, so I knew there was a difference in it. Thanks again!

First Impressions..VERY nice!, I like that [attempting restart] if the MLD doesn't init correctly on first run! Kicked 2 of my MLDs into gear where before I know I would have had to do a re-init!

I thought milli meant 1000? Wouldn't 71m mean the value is 0.071? 71 / 1000? 4653 scrypt shares? Maybe my math and understanding is off?

So what is the sweet spot in temp that people are encountering? Speed vs. errors and lock ups?

You might want to get an Antminer L3+ if you want to generate more heat (and noise). These aren't going to warm up your room. I have ten ML2 running and they barely generate a swarm breeze @ 832Mhz.

True! Very true. I have an S9 on the way (eventually), but I can't have that much noise in my office. Too many phone calls. It's not that I was expecting these dinky little things to warm my room. My office is the last radiator on the system so heat just trickles in here. I was hoping that if I ran a bunch of the ASICs day and night, it would give just a little more heat and then my toes will be happy.

Still bfgminer is stuck with 99% CPU workload on XP SP3 32bit.... Sad


EDIT: OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

It´s working!!!!!

I set both exe + bat to Windows 2000 compatibility mode and voila it´s running..... Smiley Smiley Smiley

Maybe that helps you to find the cause?

************************************

I managed to install Bodhi Linux but I´m completely overchallenged in installing... anything?

It would be so, so, so, so..... cool being able to use my Windows XP device.... Is there any hope you might take a look at least? Smiley

Could you try to install Ubuntu? I know Ubuntu runs on lots of older hardware..

Windows XP is nearing 2 decades old, and even Microsoft stopped supporting it years ago...you can't expect a new miner in 2017 to support it, I have no way of testing it even if I wanted to (which I don't...I hate windows Tongue).

Like others have said, install Ubuntu on the old hardware, its one of the easiest to use linux distro's  (has a modern GUI). All you have to do is just download the linux binary after you install it and it should work out of the box.

Does this new software just address the restart issue?
I have no problem running the older version when a higher current supply is used on the hub.
I do have some issues with Stale submissions that comes and goes between blocks?
Getting around 5Mh per x 5 and running at 876 in BFG miner bat file, extra usb fan for cooling.

Hi I'm on OSX 10.12.6 is there any way to tell if it suffers the same issues as 10.13?  The script is not finding the plugged in miner for me, I'll try going through the readme again to see if I missed a step somewhere but wanted to see if there was a place to check to see if the right driver was used or w/e.

Thanks again for this project!

Well, the thing is that it´s working now flawlessly!!

I just activated Windows 2000 compatibility mode for both exe and bat files.
Now it´s perfect and I´m happy.
