BFL is the next one (MMQ already done) I'm going to switch over to USB (i.e. not Serial-USB) so COM ports won't mean anything
The Serial-USB sux (especially on windows) and obviously I need that to perform very well if people are going to be plugging ASIC devices into their computers ...
so BFL is next ...

From a VM point of view - that will add more latency and I've no idea what problems that might cause.
I guess we just gotta find this bug Tongue Sooner or later.

I would argue that if it wasn't for windows, the internet would still be the way it was in the early 90s:  A fad that only geeks use.  Windows has its problems ... but its biggest one is most of the users are technologically clueless.  Linux's biggest problem is how difficult it is to use.

So... much better than it is now? Cheesy

KDE is easier to use than Windows, at least. The problem is really the "hehe I know the control panel, so I'm not clueless!" type.

Actually the correct argument about windows is that computer software is in effect 10 years behind where it would have been had MS not been the dominant provider of computer OSes.

Mac, Amiga and Atari provided functional well used GUI based OSs long before Windows 95 appeared.
(Windows 3 is not an OS)
The Amiga had a full colour, GUI, good sound pre-emtive OS 10 years before that, used by everyone who bought the hardware.
Windows 3 was simply a program running on top of a that POS MSDos and was being used long after even Windows 95 appeared.
Even with high performance graphics, it wasn't until DirectX was in common use many years later that games were actually using the OS rather than taking over the computer coz the OS sucked so badly.
Meanwhile look at Windows 8 - lets turn Windows into an iPad - damn I am so glad I am not dependent of that trash that MS puts out.

In fact I'd go as far as to say that I hate MS for the fact that they try to dumb things down so that the average idiot can use it.
Seriously, let the average idiot go buy iPads and such and be happy with that mind numbingly simple and limited device.
Meanwhile, the other 5% (that's a guess) of people who know how to use computers shouldn't have to be given an interface even a 2 year old can use easily to stop them from clicking on the wrong damn button.
I'm not talking about geeks, I'm even referring to your typical office worker who has to use computers in everyday life and has gotten used to being able to do more than click on a big square that says 'click here'

The worst part of all this is that I see it happening sometimes even in the Linux world now.
Idiots who think like MS trying to dumb things down, but not only dumbing them down, restricting what can be done.

Sorry to change the subject a little, but I am looking for some advice.
I am using Gentoo Linux, and I have nvidia-cuda libraries installed.
I see my Geforce 8800GT (yes I know it's as much use as a fart in a spacesuit) has 100 odd cuda cores.
How do I know if cgminer is seeing / using them?
I have O/Cd the card and I am getting around 26Mh/s.

Peace.

Whatever you do, do it properly!

I've tried removing anything having to do with a GPU from my config file, and I realized that while I was using ozcoin's servers, one of my backkup pools was a direct IP for the ozcoin server. They had dns issues a while back, so I set this. Could having a backup pool be the same pool as your main pool cause any issues, if one is set to a typical name, and the other is a direct IP?
It's been ~36 hour and 12k+ (diff 2) shares, and no crashes. 2.9.7-1 on Win8x64 on 1 BFL Single.

Well, since your mining you would have to be using CUDA, correct?

GPU Caps should be able to tell you for sure, and maby GPU Shark.

He stated earlier that he's using Gentoo (woohoo!).

Run cgminer -n and what does that tell you for valid platforms? I'm assuming it will display (and when you're mining, actually using) your cuda runtime, but it will actually be executing opencl kernels. AFAIK, there are no native cuda kernels for cgminer.

And yes, when I first started getting into mining, I started on my brother's GTX9800, which is basically the same card. I got somewhere around 25-30MH/s, I don't remember exactly.

I thought there were *nix versions of those utilities.

Didn't CGMiner used to have CUDA support??  Not that it matters this late in the game.

It would appear that the latest version of cgminer still has no provision for mining different devices as different usernames and I need to run multiple copies of cgminer to accomplish this.  Is this understanding accurate?

Hello!
cgminer 2.9.7-1 works fine on one my rig, and doesn't start on second rig, both rigs with hd79xx cards.
The error message is:
Quote
[2012-12-13 20:22:02] Started cgminer 2.9.7
[2012-12-13 20:22:02] Error -1: Getting Device IDs (num)
[2012-12-13 20:22:02] clDevicesNum returned error, no GPUs usable
All devices disabled, cannot mine!
I have tried to setup another version of graphics driver, another version of app sdk, disconnected 4 cards of 5, and I had this error message every time.
Cgminer 2.8.7, 2.9.6 and 2.9.7 work well on this rig.

I'm saw the same thing today, simultaneous crash on all rigs upon Stratum detection of a new block.

Thought it was Windo'hs Update at first, but that's disabled on rigs that still crashed.

Putting half the farm on 2.9.6 and half on 2.9.7-1 until it's sorted.

Yeah I noticed the same.  All of mine crashed at the same time upon detection of a new block.

BTW, thanks ckolivas for the debugger.  I'll be sure to give that a go in case any of my rigs crash again.
Sure. Unfortunately 9 times out of 10 I don't get useful information from windows crashes even with the debug version  Undecided

except that, guess what?  my bootloader locks me out of installing linux!

Actually, my interest is to have the pool tell me when one of my miners is not producing.
Currently (unless I run 2 instances of cgminer) when one of my devices stops, I get no notification.

But thanks for the suggestion
