I have been doing a lot of Googling and searching this, et al forums and literally cannot find any commands to do so. It's either just Scrypt or SHA256, not both, and threads that have asked the same didn't get crystal clear answers or devolved into arguments for or against dual mining.

I am trying to dual mine with BFGMiner using my Gridseed 5 chip orb that should be arriving any day now. I will be using my Raspberry Pi B+ as a miner controller, because it sips energy compared to my gaming rig. Yes I know it uses about 60w of power to dual mine, but energy prices where I live is very negligible (about 4.5 cents/kwh). I am running Raspbian (tried Minepeon, but unfortunately it's not completely working with Pi B+ yet), not sure if this would be of any help.

I appreciate any help that anyone can offer. I am looking forward to getting my Pi setup, so it is just simply plug and play (or pray for those as old as I am  Tongue )

Short answer: You cant

Real answer: Lookup CGMiner-Dmaxl, compile and run that on your RPi B+ on Raspbian, works for me no problems to Dual Mine on 10x Gridseed Orbs

Take a look in the Minera Thread in the Software section, I outlined exactly what the startup commands and order is to ensure it works.

If my advice has helped you out, feel free to throw some Satoshi's my way!

Wow that sucks that BFGMiner can't do both, I thought at least it would require two commands like CGMiner. I will checkout the thread that you speak of, I greatly appreciate the help  Cool
