Trying to set up RPi to mine bitcoin using Block Erupters, but nothing seems to be working correctly
Hey guys, so I'm trying to use my RPi (B+ model) to set up a rudimentary bitcoin mining rig, but nothing seems to work correctly. I've tried using cgminer on Raspbian Jessie, but cgminer seems to refuse to use the miner. Nothing shows up when I check my hash rate on Slushpool's website, the current pool I'm using. I have another microSD that I set up with minepeon, but every time I try to plug in my Block erupter (which is a dualminer Litecoin/Bitcoin miner), it keeps telling me that I don't have permissions to access the USB port that they are plugged into. I've googled various things and I keep getting closer to it actually working, but it still isn't showing any hash rate. Anyone tried something similar and had problems? tl;dr: Using RPi B+ to mine via ASIC block erupters, both with Raspbian Jessie and cgminer, and with minepeon, neither work correctly. Help?
Somebody pls god help me get my block erupter usb stick working
running windows 7 trying to use cgminer the following are a working string for my old GPU and the new .bat file i created to work with my block erupter that is NOT working WORKS: cgminer.exe -o stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 -u Altoidnerd.worker1 -p RSRKwCU9 -I 8 ... THIS DOES NOT WORK, MAKES ME VERY SAD... cgminer.exe -o stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 -u Altoidnerd.worker3 -p RSRKwCU7 --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 -S //./COM3 please help me. every second not mining is hurting my heart.
I FINALLY got back into bitcoin with some block erupters. I may not be making $$$, but it feels good to be back in the game. I'm mining away on cgminer 3.4.2 with the eruptors connected to a 7 port Rosewill USB hub. Everything appears to be functioning properly. I'm getting around 1% in HW errors. Is that too much? Should I get a better hub? About hubs, I'm planning on buying more block erupters as their prices decrease. What are the best hubs for the money for this situation? I've done some research, and it appears that the 10 port version of the hub I'm currently using has an adequate power supply to run 8 of them. Should it suffice? Or should I go with one of the several $50+ hubs I've seen people recommend for this purpose? Any info would be great. Is the 2 weeks over yet? My first Jally order is March 19th.
I have looked over google for some help but im obviously not looking in the correct places because I did not see what i need. Hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction. Here is whats going on. I started off with 1 asic block erupter (ASICMiner Block Erupter USB 330MH/s Sapphire Miner) and everything was going fine. i added another one to the setup and everything was still going fine. (this is all being done on USB ports that are on the back of my PC, no USB hub, yet) I then aquired an antminer (BITMAIN ANTMINER U2 2Gh/s USB Bitcoin ASIC Miner. Overclockable) and plugged it into my PC as well. I am using BFGminer 3.10.0 currently and everything was running fine. all 3 miners were mining. I went ahead and ordered a usb hub because i figured if i was going to keep adding miners that my computer would not be a good place to put them all. well a day before the hub got here, i noticed that one of the miners (the saphire one) was not mining. i looked at my device manager and only saw 2 of them. so i rebooted, messed around with some different ports but nothing made that one work. i figured it was broken for whatever reason and assumed it was because it wasnt suppose to be on my mother board. thing is, it works on another PC. so i waited for the hub to come in to see if it would work on there but it still does not. Im thinking its a driver issue since its not showing up on this computer but it will on another. Any idea or suggestion on how to get my current PC (windows 8.0) to run it? Should i try a different version of bfgminer, or maybe cgminer? im fairly new to all this so i dont really know where to go with it.
Hi, I'm having trouble getting my Block Erupter to mine for me. I'm running Vista 32 bit (ugh) with CGMiner 3.3.0. I think I have the drivers installed and I can see my device on COM3. I'm pretty much using a shortcut with the script below: C:\cgminer\cgminer-nogpu.exe -o [pool]:[port] -u [username].[worker] -p [password] --icarus-options 115200:1:1 --icarus-timing 3.0=100 -S //./COM3 It just opens and crashes, though. When I try to run it in a command prompt it tells me USB init, open device failed, err -12, you need to install a WinUSB driver for - AMU device 1:1 Icarus detect (1:1) failed to initialise (incorrect device?) No devices detected! Waiting for USB hotplug devices or press q to quit I'm using this driver. Where am I going wrong? /edit: Basically I'm following this guide because it's the only one I can find that offers help. /edit edit: installed zadig and replaced the driver, and removed the -S //./COM3, and now I just get "No devices detected!" It's progress, but still not working. :( /update 3: Switched to bfgminer and that seems to be working. Oddly enough, I'm showing 3 sets of hashes. it shows up something like 520/436/600Mh/s. I'm a little noobish yet with mining, so I'm not sure what this means. I only have one GPU and one Erupter. Why would I show 3 sets that high? /update 4: Thanks so much for your help! I now have my Block Erupter up and running alongside my GPU. Vista administrator mode is what finally got it working for me.
Hi, I had been mining bitcoin as a hobby while block erupters were still profitable. Now I have an interest in litecoin I have seen a lot of posts about people optimizing their mining and cgminer in general. I have been using Guiminer scrypt and I feel like I am not squeezing as much performance as I could. I have no idea how to set up cgminer and it confuses me even more when I have to setup different model cards in a single rig. If you guys could help me out get the best performance it would be greatly appreciated. What I currently own and the hash they are creating:
4x 7950s @ 2.1mhs
2x 7870s @ 600khs
2x 7770s @ 300khs
1x 7970 @ 600khs
1x 7850 @ 350khs
which is a total of 3.95mhs In the pool I joined it seems that it translates to 1.2LTC estimated earnings per round. [UPDATE] Separated by rigs
I've been running my Gridseed on a RasPi ever since I found out that I can't control a GS and some Bitcoin block erupters on the same device. The Block Erupters are crunching away on their own dedicated device now. The issue now is that I'm noticing that every few days (3-5), the RPi will completely lock up and become unresponsive. A powercycle will fix the RPI and I don't have to touch the Gridseed but I am at a loss as why the RPi stops responding. The RPi is even less helpful when it comes to syslogs as there's nothing in the logs indicating a kernel panic or anything else that would explain the device's shutdown. I've thought of everything in trying to get this stable. I've swapped SD cards, reloaded the OS (Raspbian with no X), recompiled cgminer, and even swapped out the USB power supply for a high quality USB PSU. It's identical to the Pi using the Block Erupters except cgminer versus bfgminer, even down to the same SD card model and series. I've got a Fury coming soon and have an RPi waiting for it as well, but if the RPi can't handle a Gridseed, I'm concerned about the Fury's performance. (I'm not the only one running a Fury from a Pi, so I have to be overlooking something) I am at a total loss here. Any suggestions? Thank you. Edited to add: Well it's been a week now and unfortunately the issue has gotten worse. I even went so far as to swap out the RasPi in case it was a Pi issue and still the issue persists. Does anyone know if the Gridseed uses the +5VUSB for anything more than powering the serial UART bridge in the miner? I'm thinking it may be a undercurrent issue that's causing stability issues for the Pi as the Gridseed never needs to be reset when the Pi locks up. Another Ninja Edit: I was successfully able to get the Gridseed up for longer than a few hours by adding a self-powered USB Hub. The miner has levelled out now and is completely stable. If you encounter issues with your miners and you're using a RasPi, add a good self-powered USB Hub in between the USB port on your Pi and your miners.
Hey all, I've been in the BitCoin mining scene since September and since then I have bought 1 ASIC Block Erupter(for fun) and have been mining alt-coins with my CPU. I saw a few mining rigs over at /dogemining and thought that I really need to get some sort of GPU. ATI or NVidia. But my question here is, how do I get started. I know how to get a miner running using cgminer or bfgminer, but I have no idea how to get a external GPU "rig" set up. I understand that I need power and a way to connect it to my laptop and I need help with what to get and how to set it up correctly as to not make it explode. Thanks.
Help to configure ASIC Miner Block Erupter and raspberry pi
http://imgur.com/NKp91Oj Can someone help me with this. I'm trying to configure my raspberry pi and ASIC Miner BLock Erupter to mine. I'm using cgminer 4.5.0, but the HW (error) just keep increasing and WU don't go up.. I used the adafruit tutoral -> https://learn.adafruit.com/piminer-raspberry-pi-bitcoin-mineinstall-cgminer What can i do? UPDATE: i'm testing the Block erupter on my pc and it works fine. The different thing have done was installing on windows the silicon labs drivers. I will try to install the drivers on raspberry as well and see if it works.
A typical USB block erupter will get 333MH/s under realistic conditions. Today, a share is worth about 1/156 of a penny and 333MH/s will get you a share every 13 seconds. That comes out to 43 cents per day per erupter, not counting the cost of electricity. Difficulty is going up, and thus profitability going down, around 25% per month. So you ... block mining (eg p2pool) but much lower and the device will start creating: duplicate shares. A value of 'd' means cgminer will calculate it for you based on the frequency: and is highly recommended. Sample settings for valid different frequencies (last 3 values) for 110nm AVAs: 34:375:110 * 36:350:110 * 43:300:110: 45:282:110 (default) 50:256:110 Labels: ASIC, bitcoin, bitcoin mining, Block Erupter, cgminer, mining rig, Raspberry Pi.

Following this installation guide I was able to get my USB Block Erupters running under Windows 8. This also works for Windows 7. The screenshots below are from my Windows 8 operating system thus your gui may appear slightly different when BitCoin Mining. Here’s is how I am Bitcoin Mining on Windows 8, using CGMiner 3.1.1. Since the block erupter is useless to mine for Bitcoin now. From what I understand the only other two options would be is to mine Namecoin or Devcoin since they use SHA256 encryption. But how can I mine these? Would cgminer work? or is there another app that i need to use? Also are Namecoin and Devcoin the only ones that use SHA256?
