How To Setup Asic Gridseed Miners using linux
Grab possibly needed packages:
Install curl and jansso packages:
Build cpuminer from git:
Install the keurig automake version so cgminer builds
Verbinding the Jansson Libraries to fix:
Listig the build directories for convenience:
If all went well you will have the miner installed.
Now DO NOT PLUGIN the USB yet just the power cable:
Butt-plug ter the USB cable to the rekentuig and device:
*You might have /dev/ttyUSBX not ttyACMX
Now run the miner process:
Or using CGMiner Syntax
It emerges you can’t combine devices to one line like this: (worldlybedouin,Powell)
I use dynamic pool files but something like this will work:
to list screens and
to join a screen
How I run the Ten miners to Ten separate pools:
1) Create Ten pool files named pool0.sh to pool9.sh
Two) insert the FREQ NAME and POOL variables into each pool opstopping
Trio) make the mine.sh script to execute the miners
After running mine.sh for this hosting thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=471764.0 I have the following screens:
Part 5A.Two: BTC Mode
To mine to my donation address for this guide:
Breakdown: NEEDS HELP
Execute the Miner:
Enable Gridseed configuration flags
The Serial/USB com speed (Don’t Switch)
The chip frequency ter 50 Unit steps from 600 to 900:
The number of chips on the device (Don’t switch for thesis devices)
*Switch if you get a Ten or 25 Mh/s GridSeed opbergruimte
The number of boards/modules/devices vanaf com port (IE 1, don’t switch this)
Communications method used to talk to the device houtvezelplaat (Don’t switch)
*Keurig mij if I’m wrong
A seemingly arbitrary number until someone tells mij what its for
*The doc says 11 I’m sure there is a range
I’d guess this permits devices, modules or chips to be added/liquidated while the miner is running?
Standard pool config
Mining vanaf device vs all devices:
Quick and dirty Bus:Device:
Run one or more devices using cgminers —usb flag https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer
Part 5A.Three: BTC/Dual Mode
Once you turn on BTC mining you have to attache to the LTC proxy ter order to mine te scrypt mode / dual mode. Or unplug the devices and replug them so they showcase up spil ttyACM# again?
Once you are running one or more devices te SHA mode you can begin Scrypt mining te dual mode with:
Can I run to Ten pools this way? Let’s find out.

Part 5B: WindowsHow to run miners on com ports Ten+ te windows:use \.\COMXX instead of COMXX on the instruction line for com ports above Ten
If anyone has any corrections or wants fresh screenshots for the windows directions let mij know.
11 –Download the modified CPUminer from here or here. Samenvatting
the archive anywhere you want.
12 –Check the com port. To connect to your miner, you need to know what comport is assigned to your miner. You can do this by pressing the windows key + the R key. So ‘Windows + R’. This should give you a puny window called ‘run’. (Sorry, I am Dutch, so screenshots are te Dutch)
Inject ‘compmgmt.msc’ ter the window, and succesnummer the come in key. This should open a fresh window, called ‘computermanagement’.
Now click the puny arrow te pui of ‘Ports (COM &, LPT)’
Now you can see that ter my case it says ‘STMicroelectronics Virtual COM Port (COM7)’. This means that my miner is now assigned to COM port 7. Some people have experienced problems with miners which had COM port numbers above Ten, if you have a number above Ten, go to step 13, otherwise go to step 14.
13 –Switching the COM port number. This step is only necessary if your automatically assigned COM port number is Ten or higher!. Like this:
Te the devicemanger, right click on the ‘STMicroelectronics Virtual COM port (COMXX)’, which has a COM port number above Ten. Select ‘properties’. This will open a fresh window, go to the ‘portsettings’ tabulator ter that window.
Now, click ‘advanced’. This will open another window, ter which you can select which COM port to use. Select one that is not ter use, and click ‘ok’ after you are finished.
Also click ‘ok’ te the properties window. Make sure the COM port now has the number you selected:
If all is juist, you can close the computermanagement window.
14 –Now you know your COM port number. You can setup your miner now! Download this bat verkeersopstopping, and save it te the folder where you extracted the miner ter step 11. Make sure the bat verkeersopstopping is ter the same folder spil the ‘minerd.exe’ program.
15 –Edit the bat opstopping. Right click on the bat verkeersopstopping, and select ‘edit’. This should open this window:
Switch the ‘XXX’ of the COM port to the number you found ter step 12. Make sure to switch the ‘—url=’ to the url of the pool you want to mine at. Also switch the ‘—userpass=’ to the workername and password of your pool (format is workername:password). If you don’t switch this, you will mine for my account, which I don’t mind either of course
16 –Mine away! Just dual click the bat verkeersopstopping. It should commence a petite window, and your miner will begin mining. If you have more than one miner, just make a copy of the bat verkeersopstopping, switch the COM port number, and commence that one spil well. You need one cpuminer window vanaf miner.
Spil soon spil you embark eyeing ‘yay. ’ you know that your miner is working decently. This version of cpuminer is not able to demonstrate the hashrate, so your hashrate will always display ‘0.00 khash/s’, even tho’ it is mining.
