I was mining off a raspberry pi with some zeus blizzards, I've had to format the SD because it got corrupted and so I took the chance to install the latest bfgminer.

the raspberry is running raspbian and I've installed bfgminer following this install guide on BitcoinTalk.

sudo ./bfgminer -d? -D

or

sudo ./bfgminer -S zeusminer:all -d? -D

prints out

so the blizzards are connected indeed to /dev/ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB1 but bfgminer doens't not recognize them. Should I add something in the install procedure to enable the zeusminers? They were working until a couple of days ago before the SD formatting procedure.

  • Weird - most of the bfgminer printouts with zeusminer blizzard say 'Found usb device' not 'Found vcom device.' I can't figure out what triggers that. – Nick ODell Jan 15 '15 at 21:25
