Is it possible for the fan to fail during mining? If so will the unit power down automatically or will the mainboard continue to mine until it overheats and fails?

It's possible for anything to fail. The miner will keep mining until it gets too hot. The red LEDs should flash at you to let you know it's overheating, and the main regulator is temperature-limited so it shouldn't run away too far.

Future pods will probably have not just fan speed control but also speed monitoring to watch for issues. The controls package on this one is fairly simple.

Can someone please quote the standard Raspbian OS cmdline.txt as I've messed up.  I can recall this but it's still not booting up to the GUI:

dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=serial0,115200 console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=51df20e4-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait quiet splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles

I'm on a Pi3B+

Thanks

Hi os2sam

Thank you.  I should have mentioned that I had re-copied the code you state above and from page 28 of this thread but it doesn't work.  The Pi3B+ stays stuck on the boot screen.  After some research and multiple attempts, it does now boot with the following:

Code:
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=serial0,115200 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait splash plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles usbhid.mousepoll=0 slub_debug=FP

The only difference from the above post (and page 28) is I have root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 and you specify root=/dev/mmcblk0p7 (7 at the end of your suggestion).  I've also added the wireless mouse stability line which worked a treat.  Is this an issue going forward by having '2' instead of '7'?  I followed the excellent guide on page 28 and installed cgminer but can't test with the R606 or Newpac's for another 24hrs or so.  I have run the .sh file from the cgminer folder but get a url message after 20 seconds or so.  Is this normal to see as I was expecting the standard cgminer dashboard to load with no recognised miners?

Thanks for all the help so far.



Hi

I've tried the instructions on page 28 time and time again and it just wont fire up cgminer 4.11.1 with any newpacs or the r606.  I get the date/time stamp and message "Started cgminer 4.11.1" then it freezes for approx 30 secs before saying its either the server, URL, check details or set up workers.  It then cycles between Pool 0 difficulty changed to 10000 and Pool 0 message: Failed auth Sad

I've ordered a Pi4 but about to throw this Pi3B+ under a bus...what can I do next?  Please see above post where the Pi3B+ won't boot up with the command line given on page 28.  Is that the difference or what else can it be?

Thanks in advance and regards.

My .sh file has this and permissions set to owner:

Code:
./cgminer -o stratum+tcp://de.ckpool.org:3333 -u mybtcaddress -p x

I've also added --usb :1 or --usb 1:12,1:13,1:14 1:15 and --gekko-newpac-freq x but nothing makes a difference. lsusb works as the devices are recognized.



Hello again folks

On Win7, there are different build date options within 4.11.1 which work differently with my R606 and Newpacs etc.  The question I have is what is the build version of the the link that is entered for Pi programming on page 28?  Is there only the one or are there differences such as the Win options?

If I wanted 4.10.0 to run 2Pacs, what would be the github link to that?

I'm not real sure what your asking here.  The latest version is what you would build for the Pi.  The Windoze "Options" are the same as the Linux "options".

The current/latest build works best on my Pi 4.  The May 13 version worked best on my Win7 machine, which wasn't great.  The Pi 4 works much better.

These links?  They work fine for me.

My .sh file has this and permissions set to owner:

Code:
./cgminer -o stratum+tcp://de.ckpool.org:3333 -u mybtcaddress -p x

I've also added --usb :1 or --usb 1:12,1:13,1:14 1:15 and --gekko-newpac-freq x but nothing makes a difference. lsusb works as the devices are recognized.

When you run the script be sure to do sudo ./name_of_your_script.sh   I typically set the executable to everyone instead of owner.  And when starting it to be sure to key up sudo otherwise you get permission issues and the miner will fail.

Also if it's still not finding your newpacs.  Do the following.  On a command line key:

Code:
lsusb

And you should get output as follows:

Code:
mstrozier@Pi-Miner:~ $ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
mstrozier@Pi-Miner:~ $

Here I can tell my miners are Future Technology Devices International, Ltd Bridge(I2C/SPI/UART/FIFO)   Any of the newpac and R606s will appear as these.  The CP210x family that is also in this list are my Future Bit Moonlanders.  This is also how I identify the devices in my scripts by using -usb 1:10, 1:11 as examples.  I always specify the bus/device for each miner.

Example of my .sh file:

Code:
./cgminer -o stratum+tcp://lcc.coinfoundry.org:3220 -u wallet_address.worker_name -p x --usb 1:7,1:8,1:10,1:11,1:4,1:6 --gekko-newpac-freq 450 --gekko-r606-freq 700  --widescreen

Another way is to do also do the following:

Code:
dmesg | grep ttyUSB

Should see something similar:

Code:
mstrozier@Pi-Miner:~ $ dmesg | grep ttyUSB
[  255.291849] usb 1-1.3: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0
[  255.483431] usb 1-1.2.2: cp210x converter now attached to ttyUSB1

[  426.943461] ftdi_sio ttyUSB2: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB2
[  427.313085] ftdi_sio ttyUSB0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
[  427.681190] ftdi_sio ttyUSB7: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB7
[  428.034089] ftdi_sio ttyUSB6: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB6
[  428.391508] ftdi_sio ttyUSB4: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB4
[  428.745016] ftdi_sio ttyUSB3: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now disconnected from ttyUSB3
mstrozier@Pi-Miner:~ $

The ftdi_sio are the usb ports identified towards my newpacs / r606.

If you run those two commands and do not see anything similar listed then you will need to check your connects to make sure the devices are being picked up by the Pi.

Ditto. Try using a different date release version of 4.11.1. I use 13 May and it works a treat on Win7.

ok. Ive been at this all day and when I posted that I saw my error. newpac vs 2 pac. now that I have them overclocked to 200 miner 0 keeps shutting off I think. What is nonces? this is what cgminer says:

GSH 0 missing nonces

How do I tell which version I have in reference to when you put may 13? I know I have the 4.11.1 but that's all I know

On the folder you download it should state what version it is. If you have the May 13th then the folder should say a62385f as seen below on the links.

I have several questions and do not want to clogg this thread with noob questions on how to operate and change specifics of these devices to include how reinstall cgminer ect. would someone be interested in mentoring me though PM?

Are you entering your pool information with user name?

Post your command line that you are starting CGMiner with.  You mentioned a .sh file too so post the contents of that as well.

All sorted yesterday evening and I’m very pleased after some frustrating weeks.  I re-installed NOOBS, selected Raspbian Full (v3 Sep 19) and followed the details on pages 1-2.  I’m hashing nicely on a Pi3B+ with x1 R606 (V5/500MHz) and x4 Newpacs (500MHz) returning 1.2THs after 4hrs (x5 500/500/500 100%).  I’ll split devices when the Pi4 arrives, start expanding and testing the R606 to the speeds I was returning on Win7.

(1) Has anyone experience with these GPIO 3.5” or HDMI 7” screens, how they effect power draw and whether they suit cgminer at all?

(2) Can someone please re-link the piece on this forum that instructs on how to VPN via Windoze?

(3) Can anyone also re-link how to set the auto cgminer reboot after a given amount of time?  I’ll be running these 24/7 and need remote access.

Thanks for everyone’s replies and I’ve learnt something new Smiley

I just started getting "found 0 chip(s)" error in CGMiner 4.11.1 and the r606 turning into a zombie; it has been mining steadily since august.  i tried to restart cgminer, changed the power connector and the usb cable, but the same error persists.  I am using Ubuntu 18.04.3LTS.
