How to mine with the ButterflyLabs Jalapeno in 2019 on ubuntu


First off, you’re not going to make any money if your electric is costly, but if you’re a hobbyist like me and you’ve picked up one of the arguably most hated ASICs to play around with mining some sha256 altcoins and you’re having trouble on finding the instructions for compiling on Linux since BFL shutdown the forums,  you’ve come to the right place.

Another warning, these devices and the firmware/software they require is old and sometimes it doesn’t play well with newer updates. Finding the right dependencies is hard but not impossible.

Start off with these, skip over any broken ones and hopefully you can get it to compile.

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install build-essential git pkg-config libtool libcurl4-openssl-dev libncurses5-dev libudev-dev

 

make a new directory to hold this special version of cgminer

mkdir bflminer

cd bflminer

 

next we need to clone the github

git clone https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer.git

Time to try compiling, cross your fingers

cd cgminer

./autogen.sh

the flag in the next step is what allows this version of cgminer to work with the Jalapeno

CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall" ./configure --enable-bflsc

make

sudo make install

 

I got an error requiring a version of libusb to be installed, after I installed the required package, cgminer compiled fine.

since you’re accessing a usb device, you need to run cgminer as root

start a screen session to keep that paperweight hashing

screen

now we can start mining

sudo ./cgminer

fill out your pool details and worker name and you’re mining!

Ill try to answer any questions in the comments the best I can.

How to get started with the bitcoin faucet

Step One: Getting a wallet.

Before you can collect any of your free bitcoins from the faucet, you’ll need a bitcoin address. Wallets allow you to send and receive your currency and they hold your addresses. There’s a few different ways you can get a wallet and many vary in their security and practicability.  Coinbase is a very secure online wallet where you can sell and buy bitcoin immediately.  To get a wallet on their site, click here.

Where can I earn or get more?

There are thousands of ways to earn or get free bitcoin. Mining is arguably one of the best ways as it helps secure the blockchain, but its usually not profitable for the average user. You can earn bitcoin from more faucets and or by doing short surveys at Faucet hub. Go there now by clicking here.

How can you just give away bitcoin? Whats the catch?

The captcha on the faucet uses your CPU to mine a small amount of monero. This along with the ads you see on the site all help support the website as do various referral links.

Where can I trade my new bitcoin?

 

You can trade your bitcoin at STEX. Its a trade platform with many different ICOs and Altcoins! Get started by clicking here

Should I replace my stock CPU cooler

Is replacing your stock cooler with the popular Hyper 212 EVO worth it?

When I built my computer I had narrowed down my CPU choice between two processors, an AMD FX series or the i7-4790k. I ended up going with the i7-4790k as it was a better performer and AMD processors are notorious for running hot and I didn’t want to deal with trying to keep high temps under wraps. When I installed my new i7-4790k I used both the stock cooler and the stock thermal paste. 

 

My computer booted up, and after I updated my drivers, began bench-marking. I was expecting medium-high temps as I am aware of Intel’s stock cooler performance issues and the heat hyper-threading can give off, however I saw temps as high as 80-90°C. After some research, I headed over to Amazon and purchased two things, the Hyper 212 EVO and some Arctic Silver thermal paste.

 

When my shipment arrived I removed the stock fan to find that there was very little thermal paste on the CPU or cooler due to the stock paste drying up. My extremely high temps were likely a symptom of inadequate cooler to CPU contact and an inefficient cooler.

 

After cleaning the old paste off the CPU chip, I put a pea sized dot of the Arctic Silver thermal paste onto the CPU and installed the Hyper 212 EVO. Installing the new cooler was a bit more difficult than the stock cooler, but it’s still easy enough that the average user can install it. After securing the cooler and the backplate, I rebooted the PC, this time enabling the OC genie that came with my motherboard. I re-ran 3Dmark and saw about a 5-10% increase overall in performance and the Max temp was 60-70°C, a temp that is well in range for an overclocked i7-4790k. The Arctic Silver thermal paste and the Hyper 212 Evo had lowered my max temps by about 20°C and my ambient temps by about 5-15°C. That’s quite a gain for such a low cost air cooler.

 

The Hyper 212 EVO paired with the Arctic Silver thermal paste solved my overheating issues with my i7-4790k and I fully recommend the popular air cooler, which you can buy on Amazon by clicking their picture below. I personally prefer air coolers over water coolers because air can provide sufficient cooling without the worry of a defect dripping water all over your newly built PC.
