Might be a stupid question, but does anyone know here how to update cgminer in my antminer S2 to the latest from kanoi https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries with ssh? (I already installed his latests firmware with cgminer v 4.3.5) but this doesnt really work with p2pool)

Thanks!

Hi Patman,

Thanks but i just need some help to recompile / update cgminer on the antminer s2 to the latest version with ssh. I'm not talking about the firmware upgrade using the web interface Smiley

Thanks already for the help!

I'm not sure it can be done my man. The S2 uses a "special" cgminer version - you can use either Bitmains image or Kano's - Kanos is recommended.  Wink

Unless you are using Eligius or p2pool, then it doesn't work at all.

Since when did kano have antminer firmware . All I've seen for the s1 is the cgminer package and that makes no other change to the device in its workings.

Also note if you want special tweaks send a demo unit to ckolivias so he can try and make it work.

On his github page. There is a special S2 firmware which works really well and add some extra stats to the web interface!

I thought cgminer did support . Eh maybe just rbox. If it doesn't directly hopefully the seller has a fork software to go with. "Then" they have to ask to merge and make everyone's life easier.

@Ckolivias, you don't want more hardware to test with.... you deleted my post Wink . I hope your getting good pictures if your taking time to moderate on your trip.

If one of the devs gets one (I think Kano might be working on something).

Nah it seems almost no manufacturer has yet figured out that for the best performance and long term support they'd be best getting their cgminer driver written by us instead of making and maintaining their own fork on a branch that slowly bit rots on an old version or trying to get their often quickly hacked up driver incorporated after the fact.

It would be rare for me to turn down more hardware to test with although being "paid" by being sent hardware that generates almost no bitcoin these days hardly seems worth it but it need not be fully compensated work since the bulk of cgminer development is still done for free. The only reason payment is part of the discussion for hardware is that generally it's to develop a driver for a company that's trying to make money from using my software so it would be silly for me to work hard for free for them to make money.  If I deleted your post it was almost certainly part of an altcoin discussion. I've had plenty of spare time overlooking the beach Smiley

Dear ALL,

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.

for Windows with GCC I would just use "make", "make clean", etc

But since I cloned the fork using "git clone" I'm also aware that autogen.sh will grab the submodules dependencies.

Could anyone tell me how to build this thing under Ubuntu if the autogen.sh is missing?

Thanks everybody!

I bought a BitFury RED USB BTC miner to try and get some experience with somthing other than ALT coins.
I downloaded the latest cgminer, installed the USB driver (COM8) but when I try to run cgminer I get the following:

The device is showing up as:

Never mind. When I tried a different USB driver, it showed-up as a USB device rather than COM device and then cgminer could see it.
It's odd though, normally you use a COM device for Alt coins. Why did Bitcoin decide to use a different interface?

You need winusb driver if you haven't already found its need. For whatever it [I think] is a better standard for device. If you don't like it, bitminter doesn't use winUsb if your having trouble for now.

CGMiner doesn't use Com device drivers it uses direct USB.  CGMiner told you to read the readme.txt which explains how to use the Zadig utility for Windoze to install the WinUSB driver.  Has nothing to do with Bitcoin per se.

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.
When I read the README, and tried the zadig driver, it moved the COM port to a USB device, and that is what this version of cgminer appears to prefer.
Anyhow it's working now, getting an 1+ GHs rate, which is much better than with all my GPU rigs (100MHs).
Looking forward to my 10x earnings, and it's such a small device...

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.

Then you're in the wrong place. You need to seek support from the maintainers of your fork. This is the support thread only for mining bitcoin on the official cgminer.

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.
