Raspberry Pi Controller Pictures with Gridseed ASIC Support
About a week ago wij got our Raspberry Pi and commenced checking out the different available photos for the device that could turn it into a mining controller for Gridseed ASIC miners. Wij have attempted pretty much everything wij were able to find available and it is time for us to report our very first impressions from the different RPi pics wij have attempted spil well spil some useful information that e have stumbled upon while attempting them…
Zoom Hash offers a console-only based Raspberry Pi picture ter the form of a very basic solution along with a brief guide and instructions for installing the picture. Their RPi pic is loosely available for download, requires 4GB and contains a compiled cpuminer for Scrypt only mining. Lightly configurable via a instruction line script. You can login with user/pass – pi/zoomhash.
MinerEU does provide a very basic console-based Raspberry Pi pic with support for Gridseed ASIC devices. The company does not presently sell Raspberry Pi devices, so you cannot buy a ready controller solution with the software, but if you have the hardware you can set their picture on your own and attempt it out. The picture is 8GB, comes with compiled cpuminer and cgminer and does support scrypt only mining, there is no web interface, everything is managed through the console. You can login via SSH spil root user with username/password – root/minereu.
Hash Master does provide their Raspberry Pi photo along with the device only if you purchase the accomplish controller package from them. Wij could not find their Pi picture available for download other then the finish package they suggest spil a Pi-based controller with SD card and preloaded photo on it, so wij are not going to be able to test this picture, but it seems to be pretty much Scripta with some visual modifications and the decent cgminer for Gridseed. Wij toevluchthaven’t bot able to test it, so wij can’t report anything, tho’ it very likely treats well being based on Scripta (earlier version tho’). They do sell their RPi controller a bit pricey considering the normal price of the hardware you get.
Hashra provides a downloadable Raspberry Pi pic for use spil a controller solution for Gridseed ASIC devices. The version you can download from their webstek is 1.Two, tho’ you can lightly update from the web interface to the latest version of the software (the web-based part) and wij have done most of our testing with version 1.Two.7 and there is a newer one also available. The good thing about Hashra is that their software is basic and effortless to use and provides effortless access for both scrypt only (bfgminer), SHA-256 (cgminer) only or dual-mining mode (cpuminer + cgminer). The drawback wij did not like much is that there is no root access avaialble for you to have utter controll, tho’ there is a user immobilized picture available. The 1.Two.7 wasgoed lacking the capability to overclock past 900 MHz, but the latest 1.Trio.Trio version has that stationary with up to 1300 MHz selectable and a bit cleared interface. Wij like that solution fairly a lotsbestemming, however the geyser on the RPi and the lack of root access is a bit of a drawback, still most likely the best option for dual mining. What is still missing spil a feature is the support for backup pools if there is a problem with the main one you have set.
Scripta is our beloved solution so far at least te terms of features, especially after getting an pic made by user that has everything setup and ready for use with Gridseed support, so no need to modify and compile things yourself. That particular photo by mox235 is available here for download and it is indeed nice and effortless to be used. Note that Scripta does support only Scrypt mining, you need a 4GB card, and the solution with mox235 comes with a modified version of girnyau’s version of cgminer that supports vanaf device overclock via serial number (700-1400 MHz). You are able to pass individual parameters to cgminer, so no immobilized druppel down boxes to set frequencies for example, the web interface also does support reporting of serial number and device frequency, helpful when overclocking different devices with different frequencies. The photo uses HTTPS for the web interface, tho’ it relies on self signed certificate, so you will get a warning when attempting to login, the default web password is scripta. You have utter root access with user/pass – root/scripta. The thing that wij did not like very much is that the miner control options do not seem to be working well, so when you switch settings it is a bit frustrating to get them applied.
The best options you have are very likely the Hashra and Scripta pics for RPi, both seem to work pretty well, tho’ you may still have some issues running them, especially if you project on using a loterijlot of Gridseed devices connected to them. It is significant to monitor them cautiously primarily to ensure that your setup is working well before leaving the Raspberry Pi to treat things on its own. You are welcome to share your terugkoppeling and suggestions based on using any of the above RPi pictures with Gridseed support. Do note that so far wij have bot testing with a single Gridseed ASIC devices and wij are now just going to add more miners to see how well will the Hashra and Scripta photos going to treat more ASICs on the long run.

Using Raspberry Pi for Gridseed ASIC Mining Controller
Wij just got our Raspberry Pi and wij are about to begin testing the few already available mining photos for the device that help you get began te using it for a Gridseed ASIC mining controller. You can of course begin with a normal distribution and compile the miner yourself and set things up to run with the Raspberry Pi, however this requires some reserve skill and time and not anybody can do it. On the other forearm you have readily available photos that you just need to write on and SD card and run them on the Raspberry Pi and supposedly you just need to configure the pool settings and you will be up and running ter no time. Could it be that effortless, or you should expect to have some troubles, wij are going to find out soon enough. For now wij’ll list the Gridseed optimized photos that wij could find available to use on Raspberry Pi, so you might want to give them a attempt spil well…
Scripta is a Litecoin mining distribution for Raspberry Pi that provides a web interface for lighter controlling, configuring and monitoring your mining devices. Originally it does not support Gridseed devices, but by substituting the supplied cgminer with a one supporting Gridseed ASICs you can lightly make it work with Gridseed devices spil well. Ter fact wij suspect that most of the other pictures available below are based on Scripta based on some screenshots wij’ve seen even however wij still toevluchthaven’t embarked testing any of them.
MinerEU does provide a dedicated Raspberry Pi picture for Gridseed usb miner to their customers only. The photo is now loosely available, so you can download it and attempt it out if you are interested. Wij are going to give it a attempt for sure.
Hash Master evidently does provide their Raspberry Pi photo along with the device if you purchase the accomplish controller package from them. Wij could not find their Pi photo available for download other then the accomplish package they suggest spil a Pi-based controller with SD card and preloaded pic on it, so wij are not going to be able to test this pic, but it seems to be pretty much Scripta with some visual modifications and the decent cgminer for Gridseed.
Zoom Hash does not give out much information about their picture or even screenshots, but has a brief guide and instructions for installing the photo along with a download listig available for everyone. Wij are going to be attempting their pic for the Raspberry Pi.
Hashra also does provide an pic with some instructions to setup and use the Raspberry Pi spil a controller for Gridseed ASIC devices. They do not sell RPi separately, but include it with their 20 miners package spil a controller for the ASIC devices. They call their software for RPi Hashra Controla and it has web-based interface available.
This is it for now, time for testing the photos. If you know about another Raspberry Pi picture for Gridseed ASIC miners please feel free to share information about it so that wij can include it te the list and also test it along with the others.
