I'm experiencing a very odd and blocking problem: was mining with CGMINER 3.1.0 on Radeon HD 5750, never had problem, with SHA256 nor Scrypt, all was fine.
At some point I tried CGMINER 3.2.0 and it crashed at start (could only see one line "Started CGMINER 3.2.0" and then crashed).
The odd thing is that from that point over even all other versions of CGMINER do the same!!! I cannot anymore use CGMINER! I've tried with 3.1.1 (that I'm succesfully using on another PC): crash. 3.1.0 that was working well before: crash. Today I tried even 3.2.1: crash.
I did a Dr. Mingw debug for you, hoping to understand what the hell is happening.

I hope that someone can lead me to the solution.... Sad I'm now using bitminter java client, but I want a scrypt miner and I like so much CGMINER...!
Thank you in advance to who will reply!

Did you delete bin files? Reset the drivers to USB/COM?  If nothing works, re-compile and remove all the fpga stuff.

thank you for answering me Smiley


sounds like a task is still running, or you need to reboot?
A task is still running? I don't understand, however I've rebooted several times without positive effects. Last try was to install catalyst 13.6 beta2 (I was on 13.5 beta that worked flawlessy, before to try CGMINER 3.2.0)


Did you delete bin files? Reset the drivers to USB/COM?  If nothing works, re-compile and remove all the fpga stuff.
At first try I've copied CGMINER 3.2.0 files inside my old 3.1.0 CGMINER folder to update files (yes, all files + folders). That was the first crash, then I prepared a separate folder for every CGMINER version to be sure that no old file was messing up something. All my tried after first crash are from clean, just extracted folders.
Reset drivers to USB/COM: what is that? I'm mining with just GPU, no FPGA nor ASIC.
Recompile removing FPGA stuff... Uhm... that's will be my last last last resource.... Sad Do you believe something about FPGA/ASIC is involved? If so why even returning to older 3.1.0 that was working is still crashing my system?
For instance Bitminter java client is mining flawlessy.

Damn, what a strange problem...

Hi guys !

I really hope someone will be able to help me with this problem.

I just added a HD 5870 (ATI) to my computer that already has a gtx-680 (nvidia). Having read that in windows 7 you can install both cards without a problem
I was happy to see instalation was not a problem. The latest beta catalyst drivers (AMD Catalyst™ 13.6 Beta2) instaled without a problem and both card are recognized by windows. I did not install any SDK since it was not necessary with the 13.6 beta2 with my HD 5850 that runs in another computer.

I though I could launch cgminer with default command line and the babies do their work, but I get an error message in cgminer :/

command line to launch cgminer : cgminer.exe -o http://stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 -u user -p pass


I get the following errors :



and once I press enter :




I searched for an answer on the forum and the web and the only solution I found involves disabling the nvidia card, connecting the screen to the amd card and launching the miner

then enabling the nvidia card and switch the screen again. I have not tested this yet but it is not very practical.

There is also a similar post on this forum but no answer was given :  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=174091.0


I can do a cgminer -n dump if needed !


I hope someone can help me through this problem.

I dont know if this would work, but what about getting/making a dummy plug for your AMD card, and in your configuration in CGMiner, disabling the GPU number that corresponds to your Nvidia card?  This way CGMiner shouldnt try and use it, and the dummy plug will make your system think your AMD card is plugged into a monitor.

Ok, thank you for the hint, I have to learn what I need to compile CGMINER. That can be instructive so I'll try.
Thank you for poining me at libusb, I didn't note that.

I should have said that my AMD card has a hdmi to vga adaptater connected. Those work as dummy plug no ?

Could not tell you.  I know when I had my 5870 running on Windows before switching to BAMT, I didnt need dummy plugs, the drivers worked just fine with it.  Maybe try scaling back your drivers to something older in the 11.x or 12.x, getting rid of the connect on you 5870 altogether, and seeing what results that yields.

Ok, I have a noob question.  I am running a BitForce Single (FPGA), and two 6870 graphics cards mining Bitcoins.  I have been using cgminer-2.10.5.  It has been working fine.  However, I am getting ready to receive my new BitForce Single (ASIC) and updating in preparation.  When I try to use cgminer-3.2.1 I get the following message:

[2013-06-10 16:26:47] Started cgminer 3.2.1
[2013-06-10 16:26:47] USB init, open device failed, err -12, you need to install

I can still use cgminer-2.10.5 with no problem.  I don't understand what I need to do or why one version works but not the other.  I do not know where to look for or how to install the drivers.  I have the latest updates.  As I said, a noob question, but I still don't understand what I need to do.  I know it is probably something simple and straightforward but I would appreciate some help.

As long as I wake up breathing it's all a bonus.  Sometimes not much of a bonus but still a bonus.

Have you tried downloading the USB driver from BFL's website?

I'm running cgminer3.1.1 with 7 USB Block Erupters (Ubuntu 12.04 x64). I am seeing an abnormally high amount of rejects (~10%), see screenshot. I thought this might be pool specific, but I've tried 3 pools now and it seems consistent across all of them. The rejects come in big chunks, suddenly I'll get a run of 20+. They are generally "stale work" or some other similar error.

Is there something I can do to fix this?

I tried updating to 3.2.1m but it seems my USB3 hub doesn't work well with the new version, so I had to downgrade. I guess I may just have to get a new hub and use the new version?

I am solo mining LTC on my rigs, and have them pointing to a wallet on my LAN. When I added a failover pool (Coinotron), it picks up updates from that pool, and all new blocks come across as: "Stratum from Pool 1 Detected New Block" Instead of the expected solo: "New Block Detected"

I also get "Stratum Connection to Pool 1 Interrupted" and "Pool 1 Difficulty Changed to xxx" messages frequently.

It doesn't appear to impact me as I still find my solo blocks, but I'm wondering if I need to change back to just solo with no failover, so it doesn't keep wandering over to my failover pool to see what is going on there. Is this normal behavior? Does it take away any performance by checking both my local wallet and the pool? Thanks in advance for any advice!

This is intentional and advantageous for solo miners.

Zanatos, I did download from the BFL site.  I didn't understand how to install it but I checked versions and it is the same version I have installed.  Cgminer-2.10.5 is working fine so I don't understand why the new one is not working for me.

As long as I wake up breathing it's all a bonus.  Sometimes not much of a bonus but still a bonus.

Read the readme THAT COMES WITH THE VERSION YOU HAVE.

It clearly says when you're starting that it needs a WinUSB driver, but you have the FTDI driver installed.

Thank you very much for the confirmation. I believe from what I read Stratum is much more dependable and makes sure that you are on the correct block and in sync with the chain. I wanted to make sure that it wasn't degrading anything by watching the pool info at the same time it solo mines. I assume if I removed the Stratum from the failover it would test if there was any degradation, I just didn't experiment. I greatly appreciate you answering my question.

I think you might already know about this issue but anyway..

I am using the Raspberry Pi and i got cgminer 3.2.1 working perfectly with one Block Erupter on my hub. Giving amazing results even, less than 1% HW issues.

I have been trying to run the same setup but with 4 block erupters and i keep getting issues. The block erupters keep being announced as SICK because they wont start, and if i happen to get all four to start somehow, they are running at a fraction of the hashrate they should be.

Im using the same hub and 4 block erupters but with cgminer 3.1.1 on windows 7 32 bit and they are going to town, hashing with no issues. So my hub and block erupters are playing nicely together.

Has anyone successfully gotten cgminer working with multiple block erupters on their raspberry pi yet?

as you can see 1600 accepted shares but only 25 of 64 difficulty

along with 920 that were being worked on when a new block was found

discarded.

Any suggestions on how i can improve upon this "Without" new

hardware?

ckolivas, thank you.  I used the zadig utility and changed the drivers and now the new version is running fine.  I thought it was something simple I was overlooking and it was.  I was missing the obvious and was stuck so I really appreciate the answer you gave.  I expect to be receiving my new ASIC single from BFL this week so I wanted to have the latest version.  Now I do, once again thank you

I'm experiencing a very odd and blocking problem: was mining with CGMINER 3.1.0 on Radeon HD 5750, never had problem, with SHA256 nor Scrypt, all was fine.
At some point I tried CGMINER 3.2.0 and it crashed at start (could only see one line "Started CGMINER 3.2.0" and then crashed).
The odd thing is that from that point over even all other versions of CGMINER do the same!!! I cannot anymore use CGMINER! I've tried with 3.1.1 (that I'm succesfully using on another PC): crash. 3.1.0 that was working well before: crash. Today I tried even 3.2.1: crash.
I did a Dr. Mingw debug for you, hoping to understand what the hell is happening.

I hope that someone can lead me to the solution.... Sad I'm now using bitminter java client, but I want a scrypt miner and I like so much CGMINER...!
Thank you in advance to who will reply!

Had the same problem, even with fresh install of Windows.  Fresh install, installed 12.8 drivers, crash.  Another fresh install, 13.4 drivers, crash.  Another fresh install, 12.8 drivers, SDK, crash.  Roll Eyes

Seems GPU mining is ignored now, developer is like a bitch in heat over USB mining bollocks.

Gave up with not getting any answers on here, tried latest BFGMiner with 13.4 and it's working no problems.
