Go to BTCGuild and follow their instructions for BFGMiner. It's much easier.

I would suggest 50btc or bitminter....I think BTCGuild is throttling new member to keep below 51%  MinePeon is what I am using works out the gate no problems.
Here are a pic of my first asic running a blistering 335 mega hash. I will be a btc millionare in a few hundred years. Shocked I am still running a gpu as well for a total of 930Mh/s. I have ordered 5 more block erupters. I will prolly stop there. I am putting most of my BTC into mining shares.


Yeah, I wasn't necessarily meaning you should mine with BTCGuild, they just have really good instructions. Smiley I actually use abcpool.co for my mining.

I've currently got 2 x 7950 and 4 x USB Block Eruptors, which puts me at about 2.3 GH/s. Which puts me at about where I was at a month ago with just the 2 x 7950s...

Hey, thanks for the tip on MinePeon, by the way. I realized I have a Raspberry Pi sitting in a box doing nothing, so I moved my Block Eruptors over to it. That's definitely the easiest setup I've ever done.

You are welcome. What USB hub are you using, and how many erupters. I really want something like the Anker, top mounted plugs and 10 ports that works with the Pi?
Yes, mine was just catching dust. I just got is as a toy, and something to get better at Linux. I have had it Pi ruinng as a Really slow desktop PC, a PXB with PBX in a Fash, a HTPC with XBMC and now MinePeon. MP is the best use so far.

I got this from Newegg. I chose it based on price and a 2A power supply. It seems to be working ok so far:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182176

I'm using 4 Block Eruptors. The way the ports are situated on the 7 port hub, you can only put 2 in the front (where there are actually 3 ports) and probably none in the back (where there is 1), but you can put 3 on top. I'm only planning on using the 4, so it works fine for me.

However, I am finding I'm unable to keep Minepeon running for more than 24 hours at a time. I'm not sure where the problem is yet. I'm going to have to hook up a keyboard so I can see what's going on.

Make sure your power supply to the RPi is sufficient . When I first got mine I used an old cell phone charger and I had lost of strange issues. My best guess is tis power relate, either the hub itelf or the hub. Below is a link with verfied working hubs. The cheap ones might not have the juice to power many at the same time.

OK, time to post a picture of my rig. It is the first time I have a dedicated rig running 24/7.

The mainboard is a Zotac D2550-ITX WiFi sporting an mSATA SSD. The rest you can probably see: that's an Anker 10-port powered USB-hub, with an Arctic Cooling USB fan, and of course 9 USB Block Eruptors. The whole package provides 3 GH/s and it runs on wifi at the moment.

My future plan is to build this into an outdoors-safe box and place it in my garden. I will also connect 4 BFL units (if and when they arrive).

You could easily bung a PCI-e card on that an mine a few scrypt coins at the same time Wink

Have you checked if you donate Mining Time in Minepeon? If so, Minepeon will never run more than 24 hours until rebooting the Miner to switch to the donation pool and then back to your pool

There actually is a great 49 Port USB 2.0 hub that works with the RPi, but unfortunatly that hub from Cambrionix costs a small fortune.

Be aware of always leaving like 0.5A headroom on a hub, so if you get a 5 Port hub with a 2.5A power supply only plug in 4 Block Erupter. On a 7 Port with a 3A power supply max 5 Sticks, with a 4A power supply you can use all 7 ports. This will help with stability and longer life of the hub.

How many mining sticks does the RBi's computing power handle before it starts to effect mining?

Rumors say about 50 USB Sticks.
But as RPi's are cheap, getting a second one should not be a problem.

I am thinking  that the D-Link DUBH-7  could handle at  6 or seven. 5 of the port are 0.5amp and two are considered charging ports and are 1.2 amps. So six or seven block erupter would not overload it.  I only have one block erupter now. I have five more on the way. So we will see.
Specs below.
Supplied Charging Current
Standard Mode:
All seven USB ports- 0.5 A per port 2
Fast-Charge Mode:
5 standard USB ports- 0.5 A per port 2
2 USB fast charging ports - 1.2 A per port 2

Yes BUT the power supply only supply's 5v 3A so the maximum be it would support is 6.

AAAAND the two 1.2A ports only give 1.2A when the Hub is NOT connected to a running computer (for charging of phones etc)!! Did you bother to read the manual?!
I have two of those D-Link Hubs and I would not put more than 5 Sticks in each of it.

No like most old computer geeks, I only RTFM as a last resort. Roll Eyes Thanks for your insight. I just got tracking info for my 5 gizmos.

it actually works with 6 on 1 D-Link, but you have to plug them in one after another (hotplugging works), got some errors when trying to just boot minepeon with all sticks inserted

How are those heatsinks working for you? - Been considering using the same ones I use for my cpu on my pi.. give a little more cooling surface and better cooling hopefully..

Well I doubt you could cool a CPU with that one Wink
But actually I doubt that the little heatsink does provide that much cooling WITH the fans next to it. If you have no active cooling, any passive cooling is better than none.
The temperature on the left top Stick is more or less equal the temp of the top right one. The ones in the middle to get really hot even with the fans, though. Means I would keep my eyes open for hubs with better space/airflow efficiency.

most what?  Grin  Cool

Thanks!


The two power supplies from the hubs run really hot under full load, so I have directed a 3rd USB fan onto them - temperature down to a breezy 32°C from way over 50°C.
