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.
Thanks, I'll try that on the weekend. Regarding the multiple miners, should I change the scan-time and add scan-serial string with all ports? At least it seems to work for others.. Maybe the best is to wait for an update Would be also nice to see the number of devices in the GUI.
Regarding the scan-time
, I suspect (though I cannot confirm nor deny here) you could keep the scan-time
entry "as is", but you might need to add the additional ASIC units accordingly with scan-serial
(e.g., have /dev/ttyUSB0
for x2 Zeus Miner or GAW ASIC units). Feel free to try this out and report back accordingly.
The update with the various Zeus Miner (= GAW rebranded) and Gridseed configurations is being reviewed (we had to adjust some of our scripts accordingly here). By default, each of the various ASIC unit configuration will be for just one (1) ASIC unit. If you have more, you will need to manually add in accordingly as noted above with this version of cgminer for the Zeus Miners (= GAW rebranded) ASIC units. I suspect it will be over this weekend before we are finished with it since we want to account for any/all possible scenarios here of someone doing something with one of the StarMiner commands (on the command line that is). So adding in now x2 configurations for Gridseed ASIC units, x3 configurations for Zeus Miner ASIC units, and x4 configurations for GAW rebranded ASIC units...you get the idea.
You may note that I did mentioned x3 configurations for Zeus Miner, yet Zeus Miner's web site has x5 ASIC units. Also note, Zeus Miner has on their site a 15 June 2014
expected shipping date. Thus, we are speculating the configurations for the Thunder X3 and Hurricane X2 units to parallel with certain GAW Miner rebranded units here. Note: This is a guess and speculation only!
Upon receiving further information from the community of those who have this ASIC units "in hand", we will adjust and update accordingly. Since none of these ASIC units are out (to our knowledge at least
)...please do NOT
use them randomly! If you have doubt, do ask here please. Hence the naming conventions being used should be simple to figure out and associate with "gaw-fury.conf
" being the "GAW Fury ASIC", "gs-mini.conf
" being the "Gridseed Mini ASIC" (that round deal we actually have here
), so on and so forth.
The webUI and number of devices (noted previously) is due to the version of cgminer being used the GAW rebranded Zeus Miner units is "dated" with an older API. The webUI (which comes from starlilyth's
Linux-SeedManager GitHub project) was written based off of more currently APIs that are parallel to recent versions of both cgminer and bfgminer from my understanding. This same issue holds true for the Scriptor 8X FPGA unit with StarMiner as well. We are looking into it and understand that desire for such as well. I would actually pass the issue to Zeus Miner and GAW Miner shipping and pitching an "older" or "dated" version of cgminer to run their ASIC units versus using the more recent versions available via Github to anyone who can browse and surf the internet (which is ironic due to GAW Miner stems from being an ISP company "in a previous life" is my understanding
