Zeus Miner guys forked CGMINER but they deleted autogen.sh in the process, I don't know why. I'm not a Linux expert but I'm trying to build this under Ubuntu 12.04 x86 64 bits.

CGMiner doesn't use Com device drivers it uses direct USB.

I had the COM software already installed and saw the COM8 port so I thought it would be good to go.
I use cgminer for the alt coins and it works fine with COM ports, which is why I didn't give it a second thought.
I guess I should have said current versions of CGMiner don't use com ports anymore.

So you must have been using an older version of CGMiner.  The current version doesn't use com ports and doesn't mine alt coins.

Glad you got it working.
Yes, older cgminer v4.3.5 and bfgminer also.
Using these on Zeus ASIC rigs and before that on GPU rigs.
Thought I would give BTC a try and see how it works, so I got a little usb plug-in device. Im impressed as it's hash-rate is about 10x my large ASIC rigs (5KW worth of power).
If this produces 10x the value for 1% of the price, I don't see a reason not to switch to BTC.

Same thing

Actually, in in the correct place, since im working on getting a BitFury working with the current cgminer. The discussion regarding Zeus was related to the version I used on the host previously when I had Zeus rigs running, but those are moved elsewhere now, and im trying to see if I can get BTC ASIC miners going.

Awesome, open the file called README.txt that's begging you to read it and look for the part where it says "SETTING UP USB DEVICES"

That's exactly what I did to solve the problem.
The problem was left over COM port drivers, so the miner defaulted to a COM port instead of a USB device.
After the driver update, your software worked perfectly and the little miner is hashing away at between 1-2 GHs, which is like 10x faster than my entire Scrypt ASIC farm, at much less power. Im trying to do the math to figure if that will result in 10x revenue improvement, but it's confusing doing all the conversions.

Scrypt algorithm is effectively by design about 1000x slower so no. If it's going 10x faster on bitcoin then you're actually going 100x slower.

Bummer, I was hoping that I was going to get 10x the earnings from this little board compared to my 5KW Scrypt farm which cost a bazillion dollars...
Anyhow, ill watch the returns and estimate my LTC->BTC conversion to see how they compare.
It seems to me from recent reading that I may be better off with BTC ASICs than with Scrypt ASICs in the long-run. That's what im trying to figure out.

I'm not seeking information on Zeus specifics but just general information on how to build CGMINER without autogen.sh. Is it too much to ask from the community?

If you have the knowledge to build this thing under Ubuntu I bet it took you the same or more effort to push me back.

He does but there are better places to ask which don't have him answering question for non supported equipment Wink. I'm almost certain if Zeus forked to do there own thing they can answer for themselves. @Ckolivias, hopefully this answer is within your moderating guidelines Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

1-2 Ghs is not going to make your bitcoin dreams come true. Look for a site named [I think] bitcoinwisdom.com . I've never played with another site called genesis block but this site a nice table interface to experiment with. You need like a terrahash (1000Ghs without rounding) to dust anything big and that was half a coin a month and I still haven't looked into how many actual blocks exist still.

Any other questions on this matter go in the economic section of bitcoin or something or section

Like the info address for potential tips Wink

Check the read me in github its probably been covered in my search to compile for windows . Its here somewhere you may just have to write the rest if it gets you in the right direction.

Not really, I'd have to go investigate why it's missing it myself.

I am a little lost here, did not see any post option so I am using reply, if I am in the wrong place please give me a hint where I can get help.

My question is, do I have to install IIS to link cgminer to bitcoin-qt?

I am asking because I see the "http://localhost:8332" part on the command line I will use.

I am using W7 64 with bitcoin core 0.9.2.1 and cgminer-win0.31 with 2 ASIC devices.

Just want to solo-mining for a while to test and learn how it works.

I will use the following command line:

cgminer.exe -o http://localhost:8332 -u username -p password --btc-address FirstReceivingAddressfrombitcoinqt --rmu-freq 270

No.

Hi ckolivas!

Look, I'm running cgminer 4.4.1 and I'm getting "Failed to sem_timedwait errno=22 cgsem=0x0x7f030dff8270 in usbutils.c callback_wait():2766" a lot, lately.
After this, my screen session renders unusable and I have to create a new one.
This last part isn't important, but as for the error, I can't get cgminer to function for more than about few hours:

Let me reply myself now that have all together.

ok, everything looks in place, bitcoin-qt started as server and cgminer found the hardware and able to get into the server with the provided username and password.

My question is, how do I know it is mining?

If you followed the setup and provided an address I assume you'd see it in you wallet "if"  you complete a block.

If you decide to mine for the bitcoin after your experiment join a pool. You might be able to get .01 a week with 180Ghs. If you want to try solo mining try something like julecoin. Probably the same setup for straight bitcoining(meaning you have to sell them into bitcoin) and a whole lot  less difficulty[and I'm not mining it   Tongue ].

Like the info address for potential tips Wink

Let me reply myself now that have all together.

ok, everything looks in place, bitcoin-qt started as server and cgminer found the hardware and able to get into the server with the provided username and password.

My question is, how do I know it is mining?

Code:
cgminer version 4.3.3 - Started: [2014-07-14 17:13:16]

I dunno what the heck an RMU is since there's no such device in the main cgminer code... but anyway if you see a hashrate in the real cgminer code it means it is finding shares internally so therefore you know it's mining (no idea if your fork driver is confirming it's finding work or just reporting what it thinks it's working at sorry).

You can always try it on a local testnet to see if you find a block...

Oops, I got it, I downloaded cgminer from

https://github.com/rockminerinc/cgminer-for-R-BOX/blob/master/cgminer-win0.3.1.zip

So it was modified and compiled by the ASIC device vendor.

To work with the real one I have to download from the real place.

My bad, I thought was the same cgminer, way to learn.

Let me redo it again and try.

Thanks for your help.
