Did you reboot after changing the files?
I did. Nothing changed. Since bfgminer is installed via apt-get, I don't know where to finde the "70-bfgminer.rules" file. I found one file with that name (via "find") here:
Code:
/lib/udev/rules.d/70-bfgminer.rules
But it doesn't seem to be really there. At least I don't see it when I'm inside the directory.

Where the hell is the mistake?!

Hi guys,

I don't even know if it is right to post my question here but here it goes:

I got 5 of Xilinx Inc. XC5VLX110T-1FF1136I FPGA. Specification are in page 2 of this document :
https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/data_sheets/ds100.pdf

Is it possible to mine with them at some reasonable feasibility? Like can they deliver even half of a AntMiner S9? Couldn't find any comparable Hashrates since no one is mining with FPGA's anymore. Electricity costs are not an issue and these FPGA's are going to get in rust if we don't use them anyway. Any directions and leads are welcome. Since BFGMiner is compatible with FPGA's thats the reason I'm asking you here.

Thanks for listening. Noob guy dismissed.

You'd need to at the very least compile a bitstream for it and adapt the code to talk to it somehow.

Update across all my miners to 5.5.0 worked as smooth as always.

I have many various old ASIC miners on a Openwrt TP-link running BFGMiner  - which I decide to boot up today, funny watching it run after a coupe of years in a box..This had me thinking..

Has anyone ever seen a Luci web interface running for BFGminer?
(Like the CGMiner interface on my Antminers?)

I currently use a 'Screen -dMS' option for access, and while I tried to copy some of the luci lua files over today - as I expected the lua script isn't that simple.
So I'll take some time to RTFM and start with a simpler set of lua scripts

I can see cgminer has it's own dedicated cgminer-api executable. But does BFGMiner?

Or will i just start with an API config file?

Any practical pointers would get me off to a good start...

Many thanks.


Why bother?

1) It's time to learn some Lua anyway as I'm increasingly coming across it.
2) Eventually when the shed is complete some of this kit can/will be moved onto solar panels from the garage - and also heat my shed/greenhouse.
FYI before I sold them on some old Avalon machines were great clothes dryers! Such heat.

It's called bfgminer-rpc

Many thanks the BFGMINER-RPC was a great starter explanation and I have a basic start visible, but.. now to knuckle down to some Lua guides too, test & repeat.

I am using bfgminer with Windows 10 for some gpu cards.  When I begin with opening the .bat file bfgminer says "Failed to resolve to host" and it will not begin running the miner.  What is wrong?

This is what bfgminer displays when I run the .bat file:


C:\Users\xxxxxxxx\Desktop\bfgminer>bfgminer-rpc.exe  -o http://654.3.2.1:5555  -u username -p password  --generate-to wallet address  -S opencl:auto
Failed to resolve host -u

C:\Users\xxxxxxxxxx\Desktop\bfgminer>pause
Press any key to continue . . .

Try to run bfgminer.exe (without -rpc). I'm not sure if the port needs to be 8332.

How do I get Keccak to work on OpenCL? I've tried setting --set-device OCL0:kernel=keccak, --set OCL:kernel=keccak and so on, but it still keeps loading the poclbm kernel.  Huh

--pool-goal name:malgo=keccak
That did the trick. Kernel is now keccak. But it's not generating any shares... ccminer does, on the same pool. OpenCL problem? ccminer uses CUDA, could that be the problem? At the same time it looks like the stratum diff won't come down from 1.02k on BFGMiner. ccminer adjusts the stratum diff down to a much smaller number after just a minute or two.

Code:
bfgminer.exe -S opencl:auto -o stratum+tcp://pool.smartcash.cc:3333 --pool-goal name:malgo=keccak -u xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxx -p xxx -L logfile.txt

I see that the Bitmain AntMiner S1 - S4 and S5 Bitmain AntMiner U1 - U3 are supported, but are the AntMiner S9s supported?  I can't seem to get mine to work.  I open the bfgminer and it just immediately closes.  Using Windows 7.  Thanks!

Yeah we on the same boat but I think we need a section for solo mine/s9 this thread is way too much to read for a lot of S9 user.

I have two Block USB miners I wanted to toss up on a windows box I am mining Eth with. I downloaded the Win64 version from the site, but I only see a bfgminer-rpc.exe and when I run it nothing, just hangs. Anyone got info on how to get this configured and running with these block BTC miners?

Thanks!

Use the Win32 version for now. I'll try to get Win64 fixed for the next release.

I've been reading many topics, posts, different forums etc but have not yet been able to find what i need. Hopefully someone here can help me:

I'm using 2 gridseed orb's and now just added 3 futurebit moonlander 2's. I'm planning on getting a zeus lightning x6.

How can i make the config (on win 10 - 64) to use all these machines at once, OR to set the moonlanders on 1 coin, the gridseeds on another and later the zeus on a 3rd coin? Is that possible?

I think you should be able to get three instances running, one for each kind of miner. I've been doing something similar on a Windows 10 laptop to run orbs and sticks, distributed between two pools

Edit: you may have to run different versions of BFGMiner to support the older hardware, particularly if you use pre-compiled .exe's.
