Yo guys... Just encountered this issue on 2.9.3 running on Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64:

[2012-11-15 21:09:43] List of devices:                    
 [2012-11-15 21:09:43]    0   Cypress                    
 [2012-11-15 21:09:43] Selected 0: Cypress                    
 [2012-11-15 21:09:43] Error -6: Creating Command Queue. (clCreateCommandQueue) <--- is the debug shits (cgminer -D -T --verbose)

Worked fine until today. Now it refuses to start. Should i try to re-install FGLRX?

Code:
CL_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY                       -6
No idea why in your case, but that's what the error means.

Thanks Con. I re-installed the AMD APP SDK and the fglrx driver and then rebooted then ran aticonfig --initial -f then rebooted again and now it works again! Cheesy

You've read my forum signature. That's enough social interaction for one day.

I might have found a bug. Not sure,  though, and it might have been fixed and I never noticed...

CGMiner 2.6.4
Windows 7 x64
Catalyst 11.5

Crashes on start when both voltage is set and debug mode is enabled. I haven't looked into it further.

Actually yasm is a red herring. It does nothing on windows builds since it is only for 64 bit linux cpu mining support.

The libcurl requirement DID change at around 2.8, due to new requirements for stratum support, but they're not the problem you're running in to. The real issue is that support for compilation on *BSD was added recently to cgminer, and unfortunately that broke compilation directly on windows mingw32 compilation. I didn't notice because I now compile the mingw binary via a cross-compiler on linux. So it's not a problem at your end. When I can get back to code soon I will try and address this issue... but then there are other problems with cgminer on windows in 2.9.x, to which I do NOT have a good explanation for yet... God I hate windows.

Wasn't trying to disagree I just ment that on the CFLAGS step I ended with at least one error and though it stated that it would run without the yasm in line something I still errored on both CFLAGS and MAKE.  Now after adding the exe (not super hard just picked up one from yasm.) I only get an error on the make. On the make I think earlier I noticed more errors then 1 and 2. It likely is my imagination though.

I will wait for people to test the git version and a newer one to come out.

Thanks for all your help!

Yasm is not needed anymore as CPU mining is no longer supported and the CPU code will be ripped out of Cgminer soon.

Referring to that windows-build.txt file you were talking about, did you modify the package config file for curl as directed?

Edit: It could be what C. Kolivas said, but I would check the package config file first.

The clock raising to the max was put in there to workaround a problem with the driver where it drops to low power during any relatively idle period and even if you try to set it to high speed it ignores you, and the return values from the driver reporting back its current speed get stuck at low speed confusing the feedback mechanism.

I'll think about a possible workaround, when time permits me to code once more.
Thank you...

From my observations, I only see it occur when the temp falls below the target-temp minus hysteresis, when the heat the sensors have picked up has finally dissipated enough. As long as the temp stays above target-temp minus hysteresis, it raises back up gradually again from the bottom range I specified.

If that helps narrow it down some.

Yes, About 5 sucessful builds ago. Then upon trying to build a 2.9.3 from git so that I could try stratum on Eclipse(Still didn't work for me) I had that error. Altering the file mentioned in the link did in fact let me build it. As I had built with this setup and no changes 2.7.5. It is running but eclipse US1, 2 and 3 are all marked dead on stratum.

EDIT: Flags used are in windowsbuild.txt.
CFLAGS="-O2 -msse2" ./configure --enable-bitforce
Then per instructions:
make

Removing LIBCURL_CFLAGS@ from makefile.am and using ./autogen.sh rather then autoreconf. One or both fixed it.
This is win7 64bit. Maybe my XP 32 (initially only XP....) machine would do it easier.

Well - having written about 1200 lines of new code (still not complete) for direct USB support on the MMQ, latest git+my changes compiled fine first time on mingw for me (after adding libusb) on WinXP32 - no issues.
Odd.

(Edit: P.S. I used:
CFLAGS="-g -W -Wall" ./autogen.sh --enable-modminer --enable-ztex
make clean
make

Like I do in linux)

Incidently, I'm now running a debug version (stock 2.9.3) on my router. Hopefully the core dump will tell us what's going on.

Of course, now I'm running the debug version, it's running perfectly.

Well, anyone got any bright ideas about windows and stratum? Disabling threading didn't help, debug versions spit out no debug info, and it's not like I can just tell people to fuck windows off and start mining only on linux. Even after ASICs arrive, someone somewhere will still want to mine with windows.

Windows people, any ideas? Was there a version with stratum that was stable for you across multiple disconnections?

I haven't given up on this yet.  Using procdump, I was able to get this:

Code:
Dump Summary

Dump File: cgminer_121117_062709.dmp : C:\downloads\Programs\cgminer_121117_062709.dmp

I thought 2.8.7 behaved the same, but it doesn't.  With 2.9.3, I can fire up cgminer pointing to oz, unplug the NIC, and in about 30 seconds in crashes.  On 2.8.7, it recognizes it fails and tries to switch, but fails on the switch, as it suddenly says the same pool is alive (can't be, NIC is still unplugged), but it does recover after I plug the NIC back in:

Here's something interesting!  Using 2.9.3 with --verbose, it doesn't crash!!!  I still observe the same oddity as in 2.8.7 where it says pool 0 is no responding, then it says it's alive again.  Since the NIC isn't plugged in, it can't do anything, but it does not crash.  When I plug the NIC back in, it successfully recovers.

Using -T doesn't change anything, it still crashes.

Hopefully this helps!!

EDIT: It seems the problem isn't just with stratum.  I have two miners pointing to p2pool (which is LP), and both locked up (but didn't crash) when p2pool wasn't providing work fast enough.  All on 2.9.3.

Thanks for your dedication to this project. I'd like to request a new load balancing option. 1 device per pool. I'm concerned about pool stability once ASICs start rolling out.

From my experience with cgminer, load-balance and balance do not really distribute work evenly across pools. I'd like to define a list of 10 pools, and each device mines solely on one of the pools in that list. If one of the pools fails, the device attached will move on to the next pool in the list.

Thanks!

This can already be done just by running multiple instances of CGminer.  While it's not the most elegant solution, it is far easier than asking Con to add or rewrite code.

Yes that's already my backup plan, but I'd much rather monitor my miners from one instance vs n instances.

--verbose works! I unplugged my wireless adapter, and it disconnected. Waited about 60 seconds, plugged it back in, and it reconnected. No crashes. At least we have a temporary fix!

That is most interesting guys, and at least gives me a lead! I appreciate your testing and input. This is what free software and open development is about.
