I'm back and seriously jetlagged with 1000 emails and 500 snail mails to contend with first, but yes some fixes will make their way into a release soon.

Does anyone else have issues using USB flash drives while running CGMiner?
I have a thread here where I tried Alot to fix my USB drivers, turns out that it appears CGMiner was causing them to hang/freeze
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=267980.0

 On a related note, I have an E-MU Tracker Pre USB that I'm using as my audio device and I notice that I get crackles from time-to-time when it's playing audio with CGMiner driving USB Erupters in the background.

In case you're using a mainboard with AMD chipset (from 2008 or 2009, not sure atm), try to find something called 'AMD USB Filter Driver' on the mainboard manufacturers support pages. There was an issue when using USB 1.1 devices causing 'noise' and communication issues. Patches are still available from HP, Lenovo etc. From my experience, these patches are working fine on other brands as well... Just an idea.

And the machine keeps pushing time through the cogs, like paste into strings into paste again, and only the machine keeps using time to make time to make time.
And when the machine stops, time is an illusion that we created free will.

 In this case, it's not an AMD issue Sad It's an i7 2600K system I put together on an MSI motherboard. I can live with it; just wanted to report the issue.

Well have you downloaded and run the newest Intel INF Update Utility for your motherboard? Intel MBs still need chipset drivers too, ya know.

For windows users who have been fighting with the AMUs on the latest version of cgminer, can you try just dropping in this dll in place of the existing one in your cgminer directory? (Or for that matter, anyone using the latest cgminer on windows, see if this changes anything for you). It's the latest version of libusb.

And while I'm at it, there are new windows .exes with the latest changes as well in case changing the dll alone isn't enough:

 She's alive ! Happily hashing away with your latest under Windows on an Anker 10 port hub !



EDIT: Additionally, deployed this build to another rig hosting 58 sticks, and sometimes, a few sticks lag at startup and the display never gets updated.

Eg: CGMiner starts up, and displays AMU0 through AMU51. About 30 seconds after it starts up, I see hotplug messages saying devices up to AMU57 have been found, but the display is not updated to reflect the new devices.



 Finally, I notice that bank often switches back and forth between difficulty 8 and 16. Is there a way I can tell CGMiner "Don't ever go higher than Difficulty 8" ?

EDIT2: On my first 10 port hub, I had AMU8 go ZOMBIE with the green light on solid, and would not respond to a hotplug operation. Had to quit and shutdown CGMiner to get it working again. Also, restarting that one 10 port hub only seems to recognize AMU0 through 5 before AMU6-8 get added to the list as hotplug devices later, and again, the list of devices does not get refreshed to display this Sad

What is the correct way to specify complex usb command line parameters in the CONFIG file? I have:

--icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 --usb 1:3,2:3,2:4,2:7,2:8,2:9

on the command line.

Great thanks for feedback. Unfortunately normal for windows to fail to start every single one of them and occasionally hotplug the remainders due to some being slow to initialise. Normal for hotplugged ones to not show on windows also - a workaround for crashes on resizing windows thanks to buggy pdcurses on windows. Difficulty is set by your pool and cgminer has no control over it, use a pool with a more stable variable diff algorithm.

Yep, it changed something for me.

My third instance always crash's now.  I run three instances 5 erupters each.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.

Did you try the dll alone or with the new exe as well?

dll alone.
Try both then please? Lots of little fixes post 3.3.1 in that exe (in fact close to what 3.3.2 will be, hopefully).

 Could the display toggle coMpact mode be modified to reinit the displayed devices manually ? I noticed it did not Sad

The whole display thing was never meant for so many devices since it's from an era of GPU mining. I keep rewriting it over and over again yet windows just likes crashing if you get too fancy with pdcurses. I keep meaning to rewrite it to just delete all the windows and start new ones but too many other things to do all taking my attention...

I haven't written any significant code in over 10 years. I think it's time to dust off my bike and oil up the chains... Have been looking for something to rip me away from DOTA2...

When you look at the code, in windows I set it to always open one bigger than required at start so there is one spare spot for a hotplug
... in case you were wondering why it does that Smiley
