I am mining using a Raspberry Pi with cgminer and it hangs after a little while or few hours.

I did read on some pages over the internet that this is due to a "memory paging issue". I don't know what this is and if or it's the correct reason.

Can someone help me with this issue?

PS: I am running Arch Linux on my RPi

Was running cgminer for a while on the RPi without problems, installed following this tutorial (without the PiMiner and display additions):
https://learn.adafruit.com/piminer-raspberry-pi-bitcoin-miner/install-cgminer

Now I'm using BFGMiner. One month and running. Of course all compiled on the Pi, no prebuilt binaries (if they exists somewhere).

Maybe that's the problem. Try with the official Raspbian distribution.

Have the same problem with self-compiled cgminer under Raspberry Pi. However, there is a precompiled binary:

If you don't want to run a bunch of cpuminers, I have posted modified cgminer sources to allow LTC-only mode: https://github.com/dtbartle/cgminer-gc3355. I have this running on a Raspberry Pi with 10 devices.

Any chance of a Pi image with compiled binary? Smiley

Here's a compiled binary built on raspbian: https://db.tt/UygLkqwd

this binary works fine stable day by day, week by week without interuptions. But have two dissapointes: 1. frequency is only up to 950 Mhz, 2) stratum above the target nonce issue. As a result, this is very good miner for non-overclocking Gridseeds connected directly to mining pools.

But in the case you are going to overclock your GC3355 over 1000MHz the best miner is cpuminer (minerd):  https://github.com/siklon/cpuminer-gc3355. Possibly with Minera or something similar to control the farm.

Didn't understand what kind of hardware you are running on but if they are Gridseeds you can give a try to my project Minera that's a complete RPI image to monitor and control your miners. It runs a specific fork of CPUMiner with lot of features for GS.
