Not sure if this is classified as a hardware issue or a software issue, if I'm in the wrong spot please move the thread Smiley

I have a 49 port hub running RedFurys on an Ubuntu machine, and it's not recognizing all of them.  I tried playing with it for a few days, no luck, couldn't even decide what the pattern was, but then realized.  It's only detecting 32 devices!  It sees all the devices, but when I start BFGMiner (I've followed this, linux instructions: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=319419.0), it thinks for awhile, and I can see the lights changing on them, and it gets through most and then starts up.

Now that I've been watching it, it always gets 32 devices.

How can I make it start the rest?  It is a bit of an old laptop, would that be an issue?  As far as I know, USB 2.0 has a max of 128 devices, and USB 2.0 has been pretty standered for awhile.

I use sudo bfgminer -o [pool name] -u [username] -p [password] -S bitfury:/dev/sda1 to start the miner.

EDIT:: Ubuntu 12.04, by the way.  Also, another problem, if I let it sit and mine all day (or all night) then come back all the miners have become sick and stopped. The computer has kind of froze up too.  I think this may be because it's an old laptop, and isn't meant to run 24/7, but any ideas?

newbie want to share with you Cheesy

i've try it too with bfg miner + rasbian (basicly like debian ins raspberry pi). and yes, it's same like you. i only got 32 active device for hashing from my 38 redfury that connected.

i've try it with cgminer, and "booyyaahh" it connected with all device!!! buuuuutttttt.. it's takes a looong time for running a cgminer, and not stable (maybe because i'm using raspberri pi)

maybe the other or Luke can give us a tips for this? Cheesy

You should see stuff like this.

Connect them 1 by 1, do not start bfgminer, and look at /var/log/syslog. I want to see what it shows when the 33rd is connected.

I found this in the readme of cgminer:

----
There may be a limit to the number of USB devices that you are allowed to start.
The following set of commands, followed by a reboot will increase that:

 sudo su
 touch /etc/sysctl.conf
 echo kern.sysv.semume=100 >> /etc/sysctl.conf
 chown root:wheel /etc/sysctl.conf
 chmod 0644 /etc/sysctl.conf
----

ofcourse first check if that file exists and append the "kern.sysv.semume=100".

Has anyone figured this out?  I'm using cpuminer-gc3355 on the latest release of Ubuntu and cannot open more than 32 devices.  I do know its possible, because cgminer successfully sees all 40.

Regards,
Jim
