Donate option, there is a default pool with user/pass seted in the config file. Start cgminer at the end of JtR option, independently if there was a cgminer running instance or not, cgminer can be started at the end of JtR, setting the proper option in the config file. (Disabled by default). Tomorrow I will go with dtach stuff, bundle cgminer into JtR and stop GPUs instead of stop cgminer. Best regards, Rafa. 2013/7/8 Rafael Waldo Delgado Doblas <lord.rafa@...il.com> > Hello, > > After the discusion in the IRC, this will be my time line: > Today: > Move the needed code to my git repo. > Launch cgminer in a detached screen, when JtR is about to finish. > Use the cgminer API to show info then finish JtR.
