cgminer.exe -S bitforce://./COM4

Do you have a GPU on the rig as well? And did you setup a pool? (-o site:port -u worker -p pass)

Yes to both answers.

As I mentioned in the bfgminer thread, it may be worthwhile to run 2 separate instances of cgminer: one only for your GPUs and a separate one for your Single(s). I remember reading somewhere that at least one user had solved a similar problem by doing this.

I been testing this on my 5970 and 5870 but wierd issue im using it in guiminer and heres the funny thing im getting 440 on each card but my 5870 is showing no cpu usage in gpuz and msi ab and even the temps are low lol.  And its slower then Phoenix v1.6.2 atleast for the 5870 im really confused now lol.  i have 3 cg doing 440 each and i started my 5870 on Phoenix and its doing 480 for a toal of 1.8ghash with just a 5870 and 5970 screen shot provider im gonna look at the pool and see what they report my hash is.

I think you mentioned it showing up in Easyminer, just checking that you confirmed it does it show up in Device Manager with no (!).
Does the same problem present in both 2.4.2 and 2.4.3?
Strange, I have 4 BFLs on this Win 7 x64 without issue, have not upgraded to 2.4.3 yet though...

Interesting.  This has to be a 2.4.3 issue as 2.4.2 works.
Now the other issue is that it will only let me run one single.  If I try both then neither load.

@bitpop was having that issue as well. Only one BFL would work. I wish I had a better answer for you then mine are working.
Maybe try multiple instances of 2.4.2 for now. If you have GPU only in one instance and BFL in another, you can add -G to cgminer.exe for the BFL instance to disable GPU.

Looks like i figured out how to get all 3 to work by doing -I 6 -d 0 -d 1 -d 2 anything else i can use to get more speed out of it.

I had the same thing happened to me. Except the first time i used CG miner I was getting 400 out of 600 mhash/sec... Later Adware detected something in my C:\windows\temp... damn keylogger

I can see the file gone and reappearing in my folder. Also This comes up.. Well it's not mine but both my old versions are detected as bad. the 2011 and 2012 version.

So it it a false positive?... Not sure if i'm infected by 4 1/2 hours of hashing @ 600 Mhash/s only yeild .05 bitcoins? I used a different miner.. guiminer 2012 version and clean yeilds me @ btcguild .06 btc with (900 mhash/sec) for 2 hours.
I'll post a screenshot

Just updated to Ubuntu 12.04 and cgminer 2.4.3 and I've got good news and bad news. Good news is that I'm able to use 2 threads per GPU again and cgminer's CPU usage is way down. Bad news is that somehow it looks like SDK 2.6 got installed along the way. Lost about 60 MH/s. Undecided

Any decent guides on downgrading SDKs out there so I don't mess up my Ubuntu install again?

Any decent guides on downgrading SDKs out there so I don't mess up my Ubuntu install again?
I managed to get MH/s back on 12.04 by copying from a Gentoo system (where I forced x11-drivers/ati-drivers to <= 11.6) the phatk kernel and forcing cgminer to use it by giving it "--kernel phatk -w 256" which is the setting used on the "good" system.

As I mix 7970 and 5xxx I think there's no other way to get good hashing speeds for all cards. I don't know if there are lost MH/s still (I didn't take the time to compare the 2 systems with 2 similar cards and same settings) but you may try this hack too, cgminer complains about phatk being inefficient but as it reuses the bin file it is indeed more efficient than any other combination it can build with the drivers installed on 12.04.

Anyway if anyone has a step-by-step procedure to downgrade the ati drivers on Ubuntu 12.04, I'm interested too

I remembered that I could restore my old phatk kernel from Dropbox to use with the new version so it's at least running a bit better now. I'm able to use 2 threads and my dedicated mining GPU is running faster than ever, but my display GPU is still running about 40 MH/s too slow and only using 85% of its power. Maybe Compiz got re-enabled somewhere in the upgrade...

EDIT: Wow, so I was still running in Ubuntu 2D after the update, so I tried switching to normal Ubuntu and it looks like I'm getting full speed again. Weird.
Never mind, display GPU is still running slow.

Hey ckolivas!, Just like to say great work on CGminer!, I think you should put in a default Enabled donation rate of .001%, And have it stated blatently that cgminer wishes to ask for a .001% hashed donation, Heck, I would proboly leave it enabled if it was that low, Caused no lag, and was just.. seemingly invisible... Like if it just "stole" .001% of your submitted shares and sent them to a donar worker or etc...

I also would love to mention how CGminer literally runs my cards 4°colder than when i run my cards with GUIminer. Great work!

Search the thread: in-cgminer-donation has been tried and wasn't worth the trouble.

Unfortunately, no it didn't get into 2.3.4 and won't until I rewrite it ... thanks to ... well read the pull request argument Tongue
https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer/pull/215

It is rather interesting to note that that same pull request might? be the fix to apparent problems with the new ModMiner code on windows ...

The donation feature was around for many months and the total hashrate donated averaged about 200MH during that time. It also introduced some bugs of its own which penalised the very people who were donating (until I fixed the bugs). When I suggested it be enabled by default (with the ability to disable it) I got crucified in the forum so I just abandoned the donation feature entirely and hope that people will feel like donating the old fashioned way.
