Yay zadig utility fucked up my ability to connect to my FPGA BFL MiniRig.  Sad

Is there a tutorial out there somewhere?  Maybe this can't be done on an older XP laptop?  Was working before just fine prior to this winusb garbage.  It appeared to install correctly but no com ports are recognized now.

Easy to undo.
Go under system, device manager, USB serial bus controllers. The device will be there. Tell Windows to upgrade the driver. It will install the old serial one. Open Zadig, show all devices, and administrator. use WinUSB and the version of Zadig in the FPGA-README to try again. It will work.

I went to Linux and found far less errors. Raspberry Pi's are cheap, capable and low power. Personally it was the best <$60 I spent case included. Good luck!

There aren't supposed to be COM ports ... read the FPGA-README.

cgminer 3.3.0 under Ubuntu 13.04 - 64 bit.   Runs fine with 11 Erupters initially, but after about three minutes, it locks the system up so hard that I have to power off and back on to get it to respond..

cgminer 3.1.1 works, (after I create a symlink for libusb.so.0) but the devices change to SICK one by one over a period of time until they are all down.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.  Kano says it no longer recognizes as com ports.  Things may be installed correctly already but I just didn't run the command line properly for cgminer-nogpu.exe

I tried the old BFL easyminer admin tools from last year that lets me flash the red LED's inside...and nothing is recognized anymore which is why I freaked out a bit.  Maybe it just doesn't work anymore?  I did notice I have to unplug and plug back in the USB cables after rebooting every time to even see the USB serial drivers at all...all 20 of them.

The big problem with these readme files is that it is information overload and it seems tailored to linux which does me no good.  Gives me a headache scrolling thru it.  Not sure why linux info is included at all in the windows zip version.

sudo, sudo, sudo up the poop chute.  jesus...lol

I need a readme_for_dummies.txt

edit: must use libusb-1.0.dll...ok I guess I missed that part.  I don't remember an option to load from file in zadig...I'll just have to look again...

First thing you need to tell us is what version of cgminer you're trying to run.

It is the latest.  I always grab that latest every time I feel like attempting to make this work...when I fail I give up and go back to what works for me...the old 2104, heh

Unlike linux, you can't just add -S noauto at the end.  At least this was the case for FPGA-only.exe.  In windows I used to have to call out all com ports individually.  but since it is not com ports anymore, not sure what to use...

When you look in Devices and Printers, how are your mining devices described?

zadig gives you a selection of 4 or 5 different drivers you can install - there are up/down gadgets on the riight of the box where the big green arrow points.  Are you scrolling through the list and selecting the right driver?

Just compiled cgminer 3.3.1 for my pi.

The Blockerupters rerecognised and its mining (sort of).... Is the green light supposed to stay off while mining (on = idle). All my 10 BE mine for a second and then the green LED is on again?

hm .... something is wrong then. Could that be because they are not getting enough work from eclipsemc.com?

Must be that they do not get enough juice from the Hub .... i can not get more than one working :/

I tried them on Win7 and i cant even get cgminer working ....

CGminer on Win7 just won't accept any pool i give to it?
It just freezes or quits on me. I cant even get to the main screen after entering a pool.


Does anyone have a beginners Tutorial at hand that describes step by step what to do?

I think you clicked on the wrong one ... the one in RPi_32 says 3.1.1 when I download it and run it (and did also when I put it there Tongue)
Or did you not run the one you downloaded?

The official source 3.1.1 also says 3 1 1 in configure.ac ... so you clicked on something wrong ... (or ran a different version to what you downloaded)

hmmm redownloaded both from kolivas and yours.

wget http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/3.1/cgminer-3.1.1.tar.bz2
tar -jxvf cgminer-3.1.1.tar.bz2

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd cgminer-3.1.1/
pi@raspberrypi ~/cgminer-3.1.1 $ CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall" ./configure --disable-opencl --disable-adl --enable-bflsc --enable-bitforce --enable-icarus --enable-avalon

make

still says 3.2.1


then
wget https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries/blob/master/RPi_32/cgminer-3.1.1a
mv cgminer cgminer.old
mv cgminer-3.1.1a cgminer
chmod +x cgminer

still says 3.2.1

Try changing to that 3.1.1 directory and executing ./cgminer just to make sure you're picking up the local copy.  Since the wget command you gave to obtain the binary is wrong, I think your cgminer command ends up executing something else found elsewhere.  You can  execute the command which cgminer to find out where the cgminer command being run lives.  I'm betting you have a version 3.2.x installed to a directory somewhere in your search path.

The wget command you gave retrieves a 24k web-page, not a binary:

Code:
wget https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries/blob/master/RPi_32/cgminer-3.1.1a
...
Length: 24364 (24K) [text/html]
Saving to: `cgminer-3.1.1a'
100%[============================================================>] 24,364      --.-K/s   in 0.01s
2013-06-27 20:22:29 (2.38 MB/s) - `cgminer-3.1.1a' saved [24364/24364]


To obtain the cgminer binary, use this path with "raw" in it rather than "blob".  Notice that the binary is 915k:

Code:
rm cgminer.3.1.1*
wget https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries/raw/master/RPi_32/cgminer-3.1.1a
...
Length: 936480 (915K) [text/plain]

thanks -Redacted-!! that "which" command did it.
there was an old installation (make install it seems) that was screwing things up.

deleted the bin in the usr folder and voila... 3.1.1 <3
