Want to demo mining to kids for educational purposes (plz dont spam on its not worth mining with old rigs bla bla - this is a tech issue, i don't really need to mine a block):

I setup latest bitcoin core 14.2 full node on a win7x64 machine with correct bitcoin.conf settings for solo mining (tested with bitcoin-cli)
I setup latest 5.4.2 bfg miner (64bit)
I plugged in my old BFL jalapeno ASIC box (dusted it off) - win7 installed drivers automatically from win update correctly (COM14).

ran BFGMiner (according to BFGMiner readme example for solo mining):
Quote
bfgminer -o http://127.0.0.1:5252  -u asdfasdf -p asdfasdf --generate-to 1QATWksNFGeUJCWBrN4g6hGM178Lovm7Wh --coinbase-sig "rig1: This is Joe's block!"
BFG finds pool and authenticates correctly, but it has trouble connecting to the Jalapeno com port 14:

[also tried to GPU mine - my comp crashed, last resort will be cpu mining but i need to recompile your code for that...]

Any suggestions ?

Thanks



Problem solved !

I used a power supply with not enough amps (used 800mAh it was just enough to start the jalapeno but not enough for serial interfacing probably)

DO the miners still work they are old by others miners on the market, these days.

Yes they work.  They were working with Raspberry PI devices.  But the compact flash devices kept going out, so I am putting them on Dell 1950 servers.

The one reporting xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx as it's serial number is now attached to a dell 1950 with Ubuntu 16.04 installed with bfgminer straight out of the Ubuntu repository.

I'm sure it's in here somewhere, but how do I run Gridseed 5 Chip miners on both SHA and Scrypt on 2 different pools through BFGMiner?

I'm on a small pool and I keep getting stratum disconnects, is there a way to increase the expected interval before BFGMiner decides the pool is dead?

Or am I barking up the wrong tree entirely?

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

Hey guys, first time poster. I'm trying to create a ASIC based bitcoin mine using a raspberry pi 3. I got BFGminer to download and launch successfully, but the program always says "No devices detected, press 'M' then '+' to add". I've tried the various workarounds some people have posted, but I can't seem to get it to recognize my mining sticks.

For the record, I'm using 5 GekkoScience 2PAC BM1384 USB Bitcoin SHA256 15GH/s Miners connected using a 10 port USB hub. Any and all help with getting this working would be appreciated.

BFG does not work with them as they need vh's special driver for them. Period.
Perhaps read the 2PAC support thread...
The 1st post pretty much covers it all.

Hi,

I'm rather new to crypto mining in general. I'm currently working on setting up GPU mining, from my Radeon R9 290X for Creamcoin from the following pool:

stratum+tcp://stratum.chainworksindustries.com:5205

It's just not working. It's repeatedly outputting:

OCL 0: Using work with lower difficulty than device supports
OCL 0: Using work with lower difficulty than device supports
Coinbase check: multiple inputs in coinbase: 0x87
OCL 0: Using work with lower difficulty than device supports
OCL 0: Using work with lower difficulty than device supports
Coinbase check: multiple inputs in coinbase: 0xbc

Etc. At the top of the window, beneath version and manage devices and all that, (all pools are dead)

Beneath that:

 ST:3  F:0  NB:13  AS:0  BW:[ 36/  3 B/s]  E:0.00  BS:8
 1      39.0C | 13.23/ 9.50/ 0.00Mh/s | A:0 R:5+0(100%) HW:0/none
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 OCL 0: 39.0C | 13.20/ 9.50/ 0.00Mh/s | A:0 R:5+0(100%) HW:0/none


My batch file to run the miner consists of exactly the following, of course with personal details redacted:

bfgminer -S opencl:auto -o stratum+tcp://stratum.chainworksindustries.com:5205 -u myusername.minername -p minerpassword

That's it. What am I doing wrong? Anyone?

Hello luke, good job as always, however, this time, unfortunately i've encountered a issue you seem to have sorted for someone in the past. Today i downloaded your current release windows 64b binary 5.4.2 and am trying to solo mine but i'm getting this response

I'm using a this command
Code:
bfgminer --debuglog --log-file debug.log --stratum-port 8840

Thanks for your reply Luke-Jr, please don't yell at me. I've tried litecoins current daemon and it straight up just wont connect however that debug log is from me trying to use it on casinocoin https://github.com/casinocoin/casinocoin

Please don't yell at me, i know you dont enable altcoins via helping people with them however, i'm a miner above all else. I still mine bitcoin like the rest of you, i also just happen to be needing help with my scrypt miners.

I'm really just trying to find a elegant solution to solo mine using a antminer l3+ which as will only seem to talk in stratum proto and i cant for the life of me find a solutiuon which is not making a pool or using a nix box or windows box to run a pool engine.

Please can you help me, i will donate of course.

Ideally i need a reverse of what slush made for getwork>stratum or, of course, your miner to work as a proxy but currently i cannot get that to function given the

I don't generally support altcoins, but if you want to pay me to investigate it, please get in touch on IRC (I expect this to need real-time interaction).
