Setting up cgminer help

Sun Feb 03, 2019 12:42 am

I have a bfl 60gh usb asic ( this is for educational porpuses so I'm aware about the value also it runs on a solar bank so no real cost to me) anyway it shows on the windows device as bitforce sha256. Cgminer is suposed to see it automatically but says unable to connect to usb device and closes. The exact line says
Usb init, open device failed, are -12, you need to install driver for - bel device 6:1
Bitforce detect (6:1) failed to initialize ( incorrect device)
If I run the gpu version it works fine with my rx 480. Acording to the readme it says to activate the bfl using. --enable-bflsc
I dont know where to put this. Id be happy to share any info needed I used zadig to install the driver... It wouldnt let me select the type though

Hi,

Not exactly sure.

However, a note regarding cgminer: Is version 4.11.1 the most recent? (August 2018). Please see: github.com/ckolivas/cgminer ( or: ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/ )
