The above code comes from http://learn.adafruit.com/piminer-raspb ... ll-cgminer

I forgot the config settings

Code: Select all

sudo nano cgminer.conf

Code: Select all

{
"pools" : [
        {
                "url" : "PoolAddress:Port",
                "user" : "UserName.WorkerName",
                "pass" : "Password"
        }
]
,
	"api-listen" : true,
	"api-port" : "4028",
	"expiry" : "120",
	"failover-only" : true,
	"log" : "5",
	"no-pool-disable" : true,
	"queue" : "2",
	"scan-time" : "60",
	"worktime" : true,
	"shares" : "0",
	"kernel-path" : "/usr/local/bin",
	"api-allow" : "0/0",
	"icarus-options" : "115200:1:1",
	"icarus-timing" : "3.0=100"
}
Save the file with CTRL+X

I use screen

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install screen
Then run screen which can be connected to and disconnected from ssh. So ssh into the Pi

Code: Select all

screen -S mine

cd cgminer-3.1.1

./cgminer
and your off mining.

To disconnect from the screen but leave it running press

Code: Select all

CTRL+a
d
To reconnect to the screen after you ssh in or whenever you like if always up

Code: Select all

screen -r mine
To sum it up follow the entire Adafruit tutorial but stop at Run PiMiner if you don't have the LCD Plate then get screen and run it.

Or for help with nohup which they use to run on this link http://learn.adafruit.com/piminer-raspb ... art-mining you can go here for more help with nohup http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/nohup-exe ... rompt.html

I can get my Raspi to mine with a single Block Erupter through a powered hub but when I plug in a second Erupter it can't see the first and stops seeing the second. The same hub and miners work fine on an Ubuntu box so it's something with the Raspi. Any ideas?

Thanks.

What version of cgminer are you running? You could try https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer it's the fork being used in MinePeon

I'm running 3.3.1 now but according to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic ... msg2817682 it's a problem with Raspian's stock libusb. I'm compiling the newer version now to see if that helps. If not I'll give the fork a shot. Thanks!

The person that posted that is the maintainer of the Fork

From what I can tell cgminer is a forked from jgarzik/cpuminer and was written by https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer and then Kano forked it https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer

And to make it more confusing both are working together:
From Kolivas:
All files available from here:
http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer

As a backup they can be downloaded here:
https://github.com/kanoi/cgminer-binaries
According to the Adafruit tutorial http://learn.adafruit.com/piminer-raspb ... ll-cgminer you will need to get 3.1.1 on Raspbian if your using ckolivas cgminer.

Personally I opted for MinePeon as it is so much more lightweight than Raspbian and Kano and MineForeman (See two posts down from that forum thread.) Are way more active in the support of Mining on a Pi than any other source. But it really comes down to taste I suppose and what options your after.

And it also depends on the Hardware your mining with most likely they're ASIC's

when I run cgminer I get the error that states
All devises disabled, cannot mine!
but when I use the nohup command it works just fine.

   sudo ./cgminer --config /home/pi/cgminer.conf -S /dev/ttyUSB0 -S /dev/ttyUSB1

If this is useful for anyone else, I create a vanilla Raspberrian image that has cgminer installed and ready to use.

Thank you for the great instructions. This got me up and running with my AntMiner U1 in little time. However, I was noticing that the configurations used in this tutorial, my U1 was maxing around 660 Mh/s when the U1 is capable of 1.6 Gh/s before overclocking. I tried a few things, and I finally found the solution. Rather than use the icarus-options, and icarus-timing, I replaced those lines with

Code: Select all

"bmsc-option" : "115200:20",
"bmsc-freq" : "0781"
and I'm steadily clocking in at 1.6 Gh/s now. I'm currently running cgminer 4.1.0 and bmsc seems to have already been included without the need for build options. I hope this helps anyone running into the same issues.

Cheers!

Sorry guys, this is an old topic but Google brought me here.

I.m. using this *** command on my Pi 2 to get mining using Cgminer and it works great. I use an app to SSH into the Pi and off we go. The problem is that each reboot causes my "screen" to get a different value, no big deal but is there a way to get a "static" screen so it saves me time and effort?

***
cd cgminer
sudo su
screen -ls
screen -r 2449.cgminer


the "2449" changes to a rondom value with every reboot.


Best Regards,

Seeing as 0.5 BTC is currently around $1,600 USD, can I offer any help! :D
