This is a great tool!
But after hours of despair I am giving up on starting my Lightning package (consists of 4x cyclones).
When I start through the GUI on a fresh image one device is working (USB0). It is not possible to edit the config file via GUI. After I SSH as root and change the chips count and add the scan-serial part (both in cgminer.conf and startest.conf) I cannot start via GUI, neither it is possible to start through startest.
The only way I could get all devices working was through starting cgminer from the console and setting -S /dev/ttyUSB0 -S /dev/ttyUSB1 ...
Also, the startest command is working fine without prior editing the configfiles, but mining seems to be terminated after closing the SSH connection. For now I a have startet cgminer for all devices via keyboard as workaround but I am missing the GUI of course
As I asked earlier (though it seems this is indeed a needed item
), I will be looking into making some configuration profiles for each specific ASIC unit (e.g., Gridseed Mini, Gridseed Blade, Zeus Miner Blizzard, etc.) to help with this issue. "In theory", all one would have to do then is add in some additional scan-time
argument values (i.e., /dev/ttyUSB0
, etc.) to account for the multiple Zeus Miner ASIC unit count/quantity via editing the appropriate configuration file.
Regarding exiting via SSH and the "killing off" the screen
session of startest
, that should not be happening. This is due to startest
is using screen
which will have the miner application run in the background of a session. Could you open up a second SSH terminal, log into the StarMiner system, and run htop
, the with F3
(Search) for "mine
" in this second session, the repeat startest
in the first SSH terminal session? What is the result of such? Thanks in advance.
