Here's what I want:
1) I want my bitforce to show up on gpumon (if possible)
2) I want to know why I have only been getting ~350mhs on my bitforce single
3) I want someone to provide a step by step guide for the dumbest person on earth (me) to set up my bitforce single in my existing install of BAMT which is already running 4x GPU's.

What I don't want:
1) Links to guides or other posts
2) Instructions on what to google
3) Instructions on what to search for in the forums

I installed cgminer 2.3.6 and for some reason when I try to start it it will take over my GPUs and I will have to disable them individually.

I did -NOT- edit bamt.conf to try to configure the bitforce. Currently to start cgminer I use ./cgminer -S /dev/ttyUSB0 -o http://mine1.btcguild.com:8332 -u user -p pass -I 9 to start it.. sometimes the bitforce runs, other times it just says "REST".



That's it.
10 bitcoins to the person who can bring my bitforce online with my existing installation on BAMT that is already running. gpumon integration would be ideal, but as I understand it is "gpu"mon and not fpgamon.

Intensity is only useful for GPUs. cgminer 2.4.1 has many fixes for BFL compared to the 2.3.6 version you are using. Disable GPU mining by adding the "-G" option. Summary: remove -I 9 and add -G on your command line at the minimum, preferably upgrade cgminer version. This is all assuming you don't want cgminer to GPU mine, which it sounds like based on your post.

Downloaded 2.4.1, fumbled around until I was able to:
./configure --disable-gpu --enable-bitforce
make install

Now when I run ./cgminer all I get is "Too many values passed to set temp cutoff"

Its properly mining off your graphic card, not your bit force. Check MSI after burner
report the GPU mining percentage its properly topping at 99%.
It will say error, error and mine your GPU, from the wrong settings.
I tested it it does that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Guide


Throw the below into a bat file, double click the bat-file and run. This worked for me.

Create an account on http://mmpool.bitparking.com/pool
It currently offers 5 currencies of mining, them sell them on
https://www.vircurex.com/main/index

Every 4K i0coins sell for 1 BTC, for about 140 namecoins you get 1 BTC.
Every 4K ixcoin sell for 1 BTC.

Add all this above it has the best possible rates of any exchange online.

--scan-serial|-S
This will scan for the Device you got.


EXAMPLE MY CODE

cd %1

cgminer.exe -o http://mmpool.bitparking.com:15098 -u lightlord1233NA -p anything -I 9 --gpu-engine 1175 --gpu-memdiff 150 -w 64 -v 1 -g 2 -k poclbm

For Linux you will need to use Shell programming which is the equivalents of . bat,
And the sign for same directory, a cd %1 equivalents.





Steps
1) Create an account, use the deposit addresses off https://www.vircurex.com/main/index They never change.
2) Create an account on http://mmpool.bitparking.com/pool using despoit addresses off vircurex.com
3) Create a text file.


4). Find the serial port numbers from the Device Manager - devmgmt.msc. Should be COMxx where the xx is one or 2 numbers.
5) Batch file in the Startup folder with this: The folder for your cgminer,
mine was C:\Users\David\Desktop\Bitcoin Applications\Cgminer\cgminer-2.4.1-win32\
Create a bat file in the root folder of that in that root folder is where cgminer is located.
Code:

cd %1

cgminer.exe -S \\.\COMxx -S \\.\COMxx -o http://mmpool.bitparking.com:15098 -u username -p anything -I8

(anything is the password)

Note: *\\.\* Stays there, there isn't anything special after that.

6)Double click the bat file, it will auto Run. You can remove -G and have GPU and bit force running I believe.

WTF, How will this guide help him if he's running Linux?


For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

That's the most silliest picture I ever seen in my life lol  Grin

Also I didn't realize he was on Linux  until wrote the entire guide XD
So I threw in the text above hoping it would work  Undecided
Extremely crude job input, but its a similar principle.

I'll give this a try, with Linux instructions. Wink

Commands enclosed in blocks are to be run at a terminal (through a monitor or SSH, doesn't matter)

1. Stop whatever is currently running.
Code:
coldreboot
and then
Code:
/etc/init.d/mine stop
after the reboot.

2. Modify /etc/bamt/bamt.conf to run your hardware.
Code:
nano /etc/bamt/bamt.conf

a. Find the line (Ctrl-W to search) that says "cgminer: 0". Change that to "cgminer: 1". (without the quotes)

b. Find the line below that starts with "cgminer_opts:". Change it to, substituting your username and password:
"cgminer_opts: --api-listen -G -S /dev/ttyUSB0 -o http://mine1.btcguild.com:8332 -u user -p pass -I 9"

Optional (if you want CGminer to manage everything)
c. Set all your GPUs to use CGminer. For each GPU (gpu0 through gpu3 in your case) change the line stating "cgminer: 0" to "cgminer: 1". If you were using phoenix2, make sure to change "phoenix2: 1" to "phoenix2: 0" as well.

d. Save file and exit. Ctrl-O, Enter, Ctrl-X.

3. Restart mining.
Code:
/etc/init.d/mine restart

If this all works correctly, you should have everything running, visible by gpumon and the web interface, and manageable by BAMT standard commands.

Disclaimer: I do not own a Single, so this is untested. AFAIK it should work, but it's quite possible I missed something.

Thanks for the replies!

@BinaryMage This looks promising. I will set this up tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

And windows guy thanks for the attempt and for sharing your config, not what I need though Sad

On first attempt, there is no cgminer: 0
There is only one instance of the word cgminer in my bamt.conf

I will upload my bamt.conf when I get to work.

Then you'll need to add the lines, under the general configuration section.

Example (setting cgminer: 1 on the GPUs is optional as stated above):

Code:
# Big A Miner Thing configuration
# full example of options available in /etc/bamt/bamt.conf

---
settings:
  [...]
  cgminer: 1
  cgminer_opts: --api-listen -G -S /dev/ttyUSB0 -o http://mine1.btcguild.com:8332 -u user -p pass -I 9
gpu0:
  disabled: 0
  cgminer: 1
  [...]
gpu1:
  disabled: 0
  cgminer: 1
  [...]

(And the same for the other GPUs)

Ok, modified my bamt.conf and added the following in bold. Restarted the mining session and here's what happens:
Code:
Stopping mining processes...: mine..cgminer api failed..3778.gpu3..3753.gpu2..3728.gpu1..3703.gpu0..wrapper-3.pid..wrapper-2.pid..wrapper-1.pid..wrapper-0.pid...
Starting mining processes...: minestart_mining: starting mining processes
..munin..GPU 0..fan 0..OC 0..GPU 1..fan 1..OC 1..GPU 2..fan 2..OC 2..GPU 3..fan 3..OC 3..cgminer...
gpumon shows 4 GPUs and no bitforce. Here's my bamt.conf. Since code doesnt allow bolding, please look for the bold tags that I added
Code:
# Big A Miner Thing configuration
# /etc/bamt/bamt.conf
#
# When done editing, restart mining to make changes here take effect
# If you're just setting up BAMT, be sure to edit pools as well.
#
# As of 0.5, many less common options have been removed from this
# default config to make it easier on the noobs.
#
# You will find a complete example with all options described
# at /opt/bamt/examples/bamt.conf
#
# Note: This is a YAML file.  Indentation is significant.
#
# If you break things badly, a backup of this file in it's original

Edit: I opted to not use cgminer for gpu's in this config mainly because cgminer is not an option under the "kernel" list and I don't know how to properly disable phoenix (which I'm just assuming I'm using right now). There is no phoenix2: 1
Also, adding the line cgminer_opts: makes my miner hop from what I list there, and what's in my pool file.

E.g.
Code:
 
  # kernel to use.. one of:  phatk phatk2 poclbm
  # if in doubt, use phatk2

  kernel: phatk2
Maybe I don't have cgminer installed correctly?

Edit 2: It's pretty obvious that I don't really know whats going on here. I don't know what I'm using. It was so easy to set this up out of the box that I really havent had to mess with it too much. All I have done is literally adjust my clock speeds, and add lines to my pool file, and it worked with my GPUs.

Alrighty. Don't give up yet!

First of all, make sure your BAMT installation is up to date. I assume you're using BAMT 0.5.x. (If you're on 0.4, you'll need to upgrade)

Run
Code:
/opt/bamt/fixer
and install all fixes.

Now change your bamt.conf to read as follows: (changed lines in bold tags)

Code:
# Big A Miner Thing configuration
# /etc/bamt/bamt.conf
#
# When done editing, restart mining to make changes here take effect
# If you're just setting up BAMT, be sure to edit pools as well.
#
# As of 0.5, many less common options have been removed from this
# default config to make it easier on the noobs.
#
# You will find a complete example with all options described
# at /opt/bamt/examples/bamt.conf
#
# Note: This is a YAML file.  Indentation is significant.
#
# If you break things badly, a backup of this file in it's original
# form can be found at /opt/bamt/examples/bamt.conf.simple
#

And we're back.
Brief vacation for me, first one in a long time.
Anyways I'm still hopelessly stuck. I ran the fixer, everything is up to date.
Made the changes and the rig slows to a halt every 20 or so seconds and still no BFL mining.

It seems like it's getting confused seeing the pool info in the bamt.conf as well as in the pools file. Maybe I'll try commenting out the pools in the pools file and see if that helps with the hangups.

Still getting that error
Code:
cgminer api failed
when I restart mining processes.

P.S. I will be sending 2 BTC to lightlord and 2 BTC to BinaryMage for the help thus far.

Lightlord, although you did not provide me with a guide for linux, I have been using your steps to mine with my windows gaming rig so I haven't had any downtime yet.

BinaryMage if you are still able to help me fix this problem I will send you the remaining 8 BTC for the bounty.


Please post addresses so I can publicly send BTC to you both.

Thanks, I'll do my best. You can send any bounties to 12yGyv6gR6y3FVizt7FjRgYYadG3xmwY9F.

Good idea. Did this prove fruitful at all?

Still getting that error
Code:
cgminer api failed
when I restart mining processes.

If the above didn't fix it, I'm pretty stumped, the syntax is perfectly correct AFAIK.

Let's try a different approach. Run
Code:
crontab -e
and add the following to the end of the file, replacing the path with the actual path to the CGminer executable you installed:

Code:
@reboot /absolute/path/to/cgminer -o http://gpumax.com:8332 -u user -p pass -I 9 --failover-only -G -S /dev/ttyUSB0

This should start CGminer, running the Single, every boot. (Though not in sync with BAMT's mining scripts) EDIT: Syntax error, fixed. Make sure you're using the above.

Not the ideal solution, but it should at least be a functional temporary workaround and give us more troubleshooting information.

Hellish night of tinkering. Wiped USB drive and started BAMT from scratch. After much trying I finally came up with this:


Looks like the single is working... but still nothing on gpumon. Only GPUs:


Has anyone heard a success story of getting a bitforce on gpumon? I've spent hours googling and it looks pretty bleak.

It's certainly possible, look at http://gigamining.com/mgpumon/.

How are you running cgminer? Manually, through BAMT, or through crontab as described in my above post?

Sorry for the delay in responding. After making a new BAMT image I copied the config file listed here in its entirety with the changes you told me to make. It works, but still no gpumon tracking of the single. The status page doesnt show it either. Only the GPUs

Well, been mining for quite a while now without problems. Just cant see the BFL in GPUMON. I am going to consider this solved and award BinaryMage the remaining 8 BTC bounty for the help.
