Also, cgminer 3.2 does NOT work if I 'su root' either.  I don't think it is the permission problem.
USB3 ?

99% no.  My computer is too old for that.

How do I check?

Is the flat piece inside of the port blue? USB 2.0 is usually black or red, USB 3.0 is always (as far as I know) blue.

3.1.1 used very little and confirmed it by seeing total cpu usage.
3.2 looks like its using 50% by itself with another 20% by system interrupts or drivers of some sort

I just noticed, cgminer 3.2 uses massive CPU. I'm runing 20 lancelots and cgminer is using over 70% on a i7-3770.
What did 3.1.1 use, and is there a way on windows to see what system time the (ftdi) driver is using? The CPU usage of drivers is often hidden from you.
Windows normally uses low resolution timers and perhaps it's related to us trying to use high resolution timers with these new drivers. Can you try one of the .exes in:
http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/temp/
to see if it makes any difference to CPU usage please?

About 5-10% better still over 60%
Also I have problems with 2 instances. Running the 17 fpga instance before a 3 crashes the 3.

Well I don't think that's the cause then if it's only 5%. We'll investigate further. Meanwhile, if you're reliably getting a crash, can you use a debug build to see what crashes?

http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/debug/

The instructions for getting a debug output are in that directory. Thanks!

Yes reliably. Will post tomorrow. It gets tiresome using rdp on my phone.

No rush. We greatly appreciate the debugging but take your time. This is the unfortunate cost of such heavy development, and we're heavily dependent on users testing scenarios we can't reproduce ourselves.

How do you accomplish system wide knowledge of usb devices? Are you writing a file somewhere or in shared memory somehow?
Because the instances do fail at finding the devices when they count to usb whatever even though they should already know.

 Ps I thought a mod split the thread but I guess not lol

Yes a file and shared memory on linux, and a named mutex on windows with the device name based on the usb bus and device address.

A mod got rid of some trolling and associated discussions, but the troll does not stop stalking this thread and reappearing.

Has anyone had any luck getting this to work with ASIC Miner USB block erupters on Arch Linux. I have tried both a PC and Raspberry PI (minepeon image) and the latest version doesn't work.
More information would help. What does "doesn't work" mean? Did you follow the new instructions for 3.2.0 in the ASIC-README?

Please, the picture burns my eyes. Take it down.

Going to go read the README again and double check just to make 100% sure.

Does the README_ASIC apply to the USB Block Erupters since its Icarus based?

The problem I have is it doesn't detect any USB devices. This could be user error as I compiled with just Icarus support.

Everything is direct USB based now, and apologies if it does not expressly say so in the ASIC README, but the advice about permissions and plugdev applies to every USB device now, ASIC and FPGA. Building Icarus in should be enough for them to work.

Awesome. Thanks for the quick reply and awesome job with the software (but you already know that hehe). I will keep plugging away at it until I can get it to work.

Not sure about Linux but on Windows you should no longer have com ports

Hi!

I have a question. Why I can't setup intensity in my CGminer. If I add -I 9 into command line all my cores run with about the same speed and is sub 200MH... I have 8 GPU cores and if I setup -I 9 I get only 1.1something GH... If I don't added I get 2.0something GH. It is still not full speed but much beater then with I setting. What I should be seeing is 2.6something...

If I start miner without -I setting and change it later it happens that all others cart get negative intensity setting... When I set them all I get the same as if I use config file.

This happened when I added 5970 and 5770 to my miner. With only 5 cores I didn't have problems. But I do have a mix of cards if that might be a problem. 6790, 6870, 5850, 2x5970, 5770. Running 2.11.4, but the same problem is on 3.2.0(3.x has problems with my pool. I get disconnected all the time).

Win 7 x64... I did notice that CPU is on 100%. With only 5 cores it was less then 30%. Any other data?

Thanks

EDIT: Figure out why I have 100% CPU. CCC problem... Uninstalled it at it is fine...

I thought you needed Windows 8 to run more than 5 cards...
