When using with Eligius it tells me to use this line:
cgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.mining.eligius.st:3334 -u YourAddress -p x -I 9

Towards the end of that line, can someone let me know what the "x -I 9" means? I can't seem to find it in any of the readme files.


Thanks
The "x" would be your password (preceded by the -p flag) and the "-I 9" would set your GPU intensity to 9, assuming you're mining with a GPU. If you're not GPU mining, the intensity flag is unnecessary.

Hey, 3.6.3 just had a memory error again Embarrassed. I was able to close cgminer by pressing q but still ended up closing and moving back to 3.5.1 Sad

It ran for what seemed all night and then I had to close it for whatever reason and I saw the no memory flickering in my screen Shocked Shocked Shocked.

I hope you can eventually find a work around or permanent fix for this and make it "pretty" again Kiss Wink Wink [without requiring the need to dump windows].
Woah woah, believe it or not this is good news (I think). I have an idea, and will post some experimental exes again shortly.
They're up in the usual place:
http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/temp/
Just died about now. 5-6 devices showed as sick and one as zombie. cgminer had a caption trying to restart. Apparently it didn't. I did try to back run to 3.5.1 and now it doesn't recognize 2 devices saying incorrect driver. I'm going to pull them in the morning and  pop them back in  then restart.

Like the info address for potential tips Wink

Thanks for testing. I'm going to be brave and say this is unrelated since it's a totally different type of failure, suggestive of hardware failure, perhaps usb perhaps heat. Once you get them going again could you please retry the experimental exe you downloaded?

Completely at a loss of how to fix this.
json_decode() is corrupting the data, and it's a built-in feature of PHP (5.2 in my case).
Googling around, I'm not seeing anyone else with the same problem.

absolutely stumped :/
Does miner.php work OK?

Nope, it's php issue.

I''ll see if I can upgrade php.

They all seemed to come back up when I replugged them. I was hoping you found a way to catch it and stop calling the device when it thought I was out of memory and clean the memory out.

I'm going to run it for a few hours and see what happens. I hope nothings going bad  CryHuh....

The idea is that it isn't supposed to run out of memory instead.

That's nice to see their sauce at last. Furthermore, KFC have finally decided to engage us (well just me) and are sending me a unit. Unfortunately for KFC users, I am currently being paid by other manufacturers to work on their drivers, so modifying the KFC driver will go lower priority than those other manufacturers, but I will get around to it eventually.

New version: 3.6.4 - 18th October 2013

Thank you for your patience through this rough ride of changes in 3.6. Hopefully we're close to a stable release on all OSes now. There are actually some other bugfixes in this one besides more libusb massaging.


Human readable changelog:

- Found the source of the memory leak on windows AND the source of the too many files open error on OSX. Both have been rectified, and fully asynchronous transfers are used on all OSes.
- Fixed numerous causes of problems on shutdown.
- Fixed some BFLSC parameters not being read properly.
- Fixed the problem of lost communications and lots of errors on devices on shutdown and possibly unsuccessful shutdown/reset.
- Fixed a bug where  bogus work was being generated at extreme hashrates.
- Decreased the overhead in generating more work for queued devices (eg BFLSC).
- Fixes to klondike driver



Full changelog:

- Fixing the memory leak for remaining semaphores means we can go back to using
async transfers on other OSes with our own timeout management again.
- Use the forcelog function on shutdown to cope with indeterminate console lock
states due to killing of threads.
- Add a forcelog variant of applog which invalidates any console lock to force
output.
- Send pthread_cancel to failed completion_timeout that has timed out.
- Simplify queued hashtable by storing unqueued work separately in a single
pointer.
- bflsc use getinfo chip parallelization if it is present
- bflsc - fix brackets so [Chips] isn't always null
- Remove unused variables.
- Use cgcompletion timeouts for the unreliable shutdown functions on kill_work.
- Fix cgcompletion return code and free on successful completion.
- Provide a cg_completion_timeout helper function for unreliable functions that
takes arbitrary functions and parameters and reliably returns.
- Perform sync transfers on shutdown to allow final transfers to complete.
- Destroy cgsems used after transfers to not leave open files on osx.
- klondike rewrite work control
- allow __work_complete() access
- miner.h allow devices to tv_stamp work

I'll try 3.6.4 when I get home. Good you found the problem. Just makes me wish I could direct update from my phone right now.

I just upgraded my Windows machines from 3.1.1 to 3.6.4 and was wondering if it's possible to have each accepted share show as "1" instead of the share's actual value? I've been checking the readme but can't find anything.

Thanks for your great work, ckolivas.

3.6.4 works great on Macs again, thank you! Cheesy

There are two minor bugs, but they don't affect mining.  The first one occurs during building, where I must now explicitly use "--disable-adl" whereas I didn't need to in 3.6.3.  ADL isn't used on the Mac, so it's no loss, but since it is a non-default option it's a caveat Mac users will need to remember if they want to successfully build it for 3.6.4.  Here is readout from make:

Code:
In file included from ./sha2.h:36,
                 from cgminer.c:52:
./miner.h:127:30: error: ADL_SDK/adl_sdk.h: No such file or directory
In file included from ./sha2.h:36,
                 from cgminer.c:52:
./miner.h:288: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before ‘ADLTemperature’
cgminer.c: In function ‘write_config’:
cgminer.c:4393: error: ‘struct gpu_adl’ has no member named ‘overtemp’
cgminer.c:4396: error: ‘struct gpu_adl’ has no member named ‘targettemp’
make[2]: *** [cgminer-cgminer.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

Again, using "--disable-adl" solves it.  The other bug(?) occurs when quitting cgminer, the following messages are output.

Code:
[2013-10-18 11:27:04] Received kill message
[2013-10-18 11:27:05] AMU0: Comms error (rerr=-4 amt=0)
[2013-10-18 11:27:05] Thread 2 failure, exiting
[2013-10-18 11:27:05] Failed to read errno=0 in usbutils.c usb_resource_thread():3737
[2013-10-18 11:27:05] Shutdown signal received.

The "usbutils.c" error (4th line down) I think is atypical.  Neither of these affect usability of the program.  Thanks for the great update!

Great, thanks for confirming testing and providing builds. The failed to read message is fine on shutdown. The reason is macosx doesn't support unnamed semaphores and I built a custom structure and set of functions to imitate them on OSX. During shut down the structures are being torn down so don't work at some stage and that's what you're seeing.
See:
http://ck-hack.blogspot.com/2013/09/unnamed-semaphores-and-pososx.html

Not sure about the ADL issue. Weird since I didn't really touch that code between .3 and .4 (Try 'autoreconf -fi' first if you're building from git)

That's a good point, but bear in mind I'm being paid professional rates from the other manufacturers in the still-in-design phase who will then be supplying me with prototypes and finally real hardware which really puts to shame the "offer hardware and code after the fact" approach.
