Last night my power went out about 3-4 hours.  The 2 Butterfly Labs miners I have (Jalapenos) now are not recognized by BFGminer when I rebooted.

Is there another software besides BFGminer that I could use that is easy to install on Fedora preferably.   Has anyone else had experience with power outages?   The miners work fine when plugged in as normal.  Maybe I should try a different mining software, I've been using BFGminer for months now.    Thanks!

I use four butterfly miners, plugged into a single USB hub, plugged into a Raspberry Pi running Miner Peon.  Works like a charm.  The key to successful mining, is to keep anything Microsoft, out of the system.  Nothing, I repeat nothing, is stable about Microsoft.
