Note that by default all miner configuaations are enabled, so no extra argumetns are required if building for Block Erupters. Technically it is done and bfgminer can be run. Where “-S erupter:all” is important as it tells bfgminer to search for all connected Block Erupters and use them for mining. The problem of running bfgminer like this is that it is only running until you have the ssh tunnel open. Once you close it, bfgminer shuts down. 7 in order to keep the ssh tunnel open and contiue mining.
To overcome this problem, screen will be used. Technically it allows to run a command in a virtual terminal window in the background, which allows running the miner in the background too without the need of a live ssh connection to the Raspberry pi. After that, running bfgminer with screen goes as the following. Note: that this assumes you are in the directory of bfgminer.
If you want to make a general command append the route to before . This will start bfgminer in a new screen session, detached, so no output will be shown on the screen, you will be returned to the command line. Here is a short explanation what the parts of the above command do. This creates a new session but doesn’t attach to it. This is useful for system startup scripts.
When creating a new session, this option can be used to specify a meaningful name for the session. As above I named the session “miner”, one may choose a more specific name as well. This will switch to the screen session where bfgminer is running. Here you can monitor the miner, accepted shares, stales and so on. Once you checked the miner is running OK, exit the screen session properly, without interrupting the miner! This will properly detach the screen session, without interrupting the miner. C or exit the miner with “q”, the mining will stop.
However, I have encountered several problems that I could not overcome. I tried virtually every version of cgminer from 2. 8 until the latest version to see which one works best, but none could perform reliably. 20h of running and required a maanual reboot. This was definitely not what I was looking for. I could not get it to work the way I wanted to with he raspberry Pi. Bfgminer seems to have solved all these issues.
Configuration is easy and it works pretty much “out of the box”. I found this issue with quite a few pools. Triplemining on the other hand has a stratum difficulty of 1 and I am submitting a share about every 30-40 seconds. Initially I wanted to add some small copper heat sinks, however this plan failed due to delayed delivery of the heat sinks. Claim free satoshis at Moon Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Rigs Everything you need to get started on Bitcoin mining! Bitcoin mining with Block Erupter USB miner and BFGMiner I’ve previously made a post on how to use your Block Erupters using CGMiner, personally it worked for me when I was running a few erupters on a hub but as I increased my mining network and I started to use hundreds of erupters, I noticed CGMiner became a little bit buggy. I was just informed the download doesn’t seem to be working, I’ve uploaded the copy I use which is BFGMiner 3. Download and install the driver for you Block Erupter. Plug in your Block Erupters, Each Erupter requires at least 0. 5A at 5V if you’re plugging them into a USB hub. Find the folder where you save BFGMiner and unzip the files.
You can then move the shortcut to your desktop for easier access. To access your BFGMiner, double click on the shortcut you made and your miner should start. You should read though the README. TXT file that came with the BFGMiner zip file to get to know how the miner works and it’s functions if you’re not familiar with BFGMiner program.
