So I've got a strange problem that I've been running onto. I've got a bitcoin usb miner, Bitfury, and I'm using CGMiner to mine.
When I start the application, as root, the USB device is not detected automatically. CGMiner only detects the stick when it's re-plugged (it detects an hotplug event, and then works as intended)
I'd like to set up a headless mini-server, and therefore, I'd rather not stand up and unplug and then replug the device everytime the servers restarts, as I'm too lazy for that, and it's somewhat difficult do to when I'm not physically at my home.
So, is it possible to, like, turn off the USB system and restart it? Or is there a better way to do it?
Currently, I'm running Fedora 20 on HP t5730 terminal, but I've encountered the problem on Raspbian on Raspberry PI, so I don't think it's something OS-side. Maybe it's the device itself, or CGMiner's fault, but I was yet unable to find anything on that topic.
