I have chrisp's code, so if somebody gives me remote access to a linux box with an Enterpoint board attached to it, I will integrate his code and make it part of the next release.
Is Windows ok, too?

Maybe as a last resort.  I got an offer of access to an Ubuntu machine, so it looks like I'm set for now.

The printing press heralded the end of the Dark Ages and made the Enlightenment possible, but it took another three centuries before any country managed to put freedom of the press beyond the reach of legislators.  So it may take a while before cryptocurrencies are free of the AML-NSA-KYC surveillance plague.

Hrm im suffering from a strange issue ... One day (even before 1.10) I got this message and I can't get around it.


Code:
java -Xbootclasspath/a:ZtexBTCMiner-120221.jar -jar tml-1.10.jar ztex:0 host

_________________________________________________________________________
Tricone Mining Logic, host software v1.10

   IF YOU EXPERIENCE HIGH ERROR RATES: try running just one ring at a
   time (e.g. use 'ztex:0:0.0' on command line instead of 'ztex:0').
   If each ring works error free on its own, but you get errors when
   running all three, it means your power supply is sagging.

             adding work source host

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a list of the devices that Ztex's Java code claims it can see:
0: bus=002  device=14 (`014')  ID=221a:100
   Manufacturer="ZTEX"  Product="btcminer for ZTEX FPGA Modules"    SerialNumber="04A346E225"
   productID=10.13.1.1  fwVer=0  ifVer=1
If your board is not on the list, please contact him and tell him to fix his code.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[0              ] found new board ztex:0

Its not the board (been runing ztex at 240+/1.4 fine). Won't run TML again no matter what. Sad

You need to power-cycle the board while disconnected from USB.  In other words, unplug both the power and USB at the same time, then plug them back in.

This is a "feature" of the ztex USB chip/code.  Stuff like this is the reason why I am so adamant about not throwing any more of my time down the black hole of debugging other peoples' proprietary USB interfaces.

Can I ask for a small favor? Can anybody send me an urjtag ver. 2027 on email? Thanks in advance.

Under development Modular UPGRADEABLE Miner (MUM). Looking for investors.
Changing one PCB with screwdriver and you have brand new miner in hand... Plug&Play, scalable from one module to thousands.

c'mon man fpga mining is going to be obsolete by the time you work with us to bring TPM bitstream to our unit

we are ready to go, we just need a little direction from you.

Can you please join #btcfpga on irc today so we can talk about it?

I'd welcome a HOWTO for the Cairnsmore1 board (for Linux please). I don't even know where to begin with... There was one person reporting success with a single FPGA but from what I understand they needed to connect to the JTAG directly and not through USB.

P2pool tuning guide
Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

I've not looked at it, but try this:

Oops, my mistake. You did specify Linux.

And it's for the "normal" bitstreams which work OK for me (on occasion one board disappears, but it has become rare with the most recent bitstreams).

What I'm looking for is a way to run the TML on a Cairnsmore if possible.

we are ready to go, we just need a little direction from you.

I answered your last email over a week ago and haven't heard since.  Sending me email is far more effective than posting here.


Can you please join #btcfpga on irc today so we can talk about it?

Please email me.  I try to avoid IRC because I find that if I let myself hang out on IRC I never get any work done.  Email is a lot less distracting.

Also, this forum is really not the best way to get a hold of me in a hurry.  I sometimes go for up to a week without checking the forum or my forum PMs.  But I respond to emails promptly, especially if the email is short and something in the subject line indicates that it's an urgent matter.

Hi,

The main website lists the x6500 as unconfirmed. Has anyone successfully gottten the TML miner to run on a x6500 board? And if so were was anything special required?

Thanks!

TML version 1.11 has been posted.  This includes a new bitstream "leibniz" with support for two additional boards, the "x2" and "dominator".  You should stick to "kreisel" unless you have one of these boards; it is faster and is still the default.

Dominator users, add these arguments when invoking the TML:


    -Dbitstream=leibniz -Dclock_pin=csg484.W11 -Dclock_pin_freq=6.666


X2 users, add these arguments when invoking the TML:


    -Dbitstream=leibniz -Dclock_pin=fgg484.H22

Unfortunately I will not have time to fiddle with it until at least October 15th.  At the earliest.

While this indeed did solve problems in the past, it now still seems non recoverable.

Edit, sudo solved the issue, but that is not the way to go. At least its runnin again.

With all the delays, don't you think making this project open source would have given you more "revenue"?
Look at the CM1 bitstream - a 300 BTC bounty was paid out and could have been yours.

Just wondering...

    -Dbitstream=leibniz -Dclock_pin=csg484.W11 -Dclock_pin_freq=6.666

Doesn't work.
My Cable is detected, but loading the Bitstream Fails.

the 'tml-leibniz.bit' bit stream file, has the 10x size of a standard bitstream file and it is an 'Ascii' file and not binary like a standard bit file.
It seems that 'tml-leibniz.bit' is an ngc, ncd file or something like this.

Hey eldentyrell, please link up with cablepair so the MMQ can get the benefit of your bitstream.

After reinstalling everything new, on a brand new Ubuntu 12.10 i386.
FPGA Loading other Bitstreams works.

Loading in the Device works, but now i got this error:

"DCM did not report ready for programming"

That happens in ...miner.DCM.setClockFrequency(DCM.java:151)
