CPU Mining Test with CGminer - Bitcoin Stack Exchange
Don't worry, cgminer can still solo mine altcoins. (I was unsure because recent versions have a required flag called --btc-address, and cgminer "officially" only supports Bitcoin in the first place. But I got in touch with one of the devs and he clarified the situation.)
Hello, I have a full node that was running the 0.14.1 UASF core client, it was still downloading the chain. I have upgraded it to the 0.15 client, and when I start the bitcoind daemon, I get the following error: error code: -32601 error message: Method not found I have compiled the client with the --enable-upnp-default --disable-wallet --with-gui=no flags. I have done some research and that error is related to the wallet function, which should be disabled. Any thoughts? Edit: solved. As cgminer kindly pointed out, the -32601 was from the bitcoin-cli command itself, not the server. The getinfo option is no longer supported in 0.15. read below for conclusions.
The result of my malware scan, in particular the lines below, was very interesting. Obviously I can't tell if MalwareBytes is correct in flagging these. Some of them indicated "PUP.BitcoinMiner" which seems valid but others were marked as "Trojan.BitMiner.TS" or "PUP.Proxy.BCM" ... those may very well be valid downloads but I do know that MalwareBytes did not indicate ALL of the Bitcoin miners I had downloaded... http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1xe2t7/fug_looks_like_i_was_hacked_can_anyone_confirmhelp/ M:\Bitcoin\guiminer-scrypt_win32_binaries_v0.03.zip (PUP.BitCoinMiner) -> No action taken.

Want to get started mining defcoin with an ASIC and a Raspberry Pi? Does 360 KH/s of mining power sound appealing? Here’s how to do it. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Blpj8IvCcAEIStY.jpg 1) Hardware List -Raspberry Pi Model B --SD Card --Micro USB power supply --Ethernet cable -Gridseed ASIC --12V power supply (5.5mm/2.5mm barrel connector) --USB to Mini USB data cable The main component is the Gridseed ASIC, which will be doing the Scrypt calculations. The Raspberry Pi will be used as the controller for the ASIC, and will be doing the communication with the mining pool. If you’re not familiar with the term, an ASIC is an Application-Specific Integrated Circuit - basically a chip with a single purpose, like mining crypto currency. Using an ASIC will allow us to mine more efficiently than we would be able to with general purpose hardware. The ASIC that I’m using is a “300+ KH/s Single Gridseed ASIC Miner”. It looks like a CPU heatsink with a fan attached. There is actually a circuit board with 5 ASIC chips sandwiched between two halves of this heatsink, and has a mini USB connector and a power connector sticking out the side. There are a few places where you can buy these. I bought mine at GAWMiners.com for $130. That was the lowest price that I could find, and I had a good experience buying from them. Use this link, and you can get $20 off of a $200 order (and give me some referral points :-)) GAWMiners. You can also find other vendors by searching for “Gridseed ASIC”. You’ll need a 12V power supply to power the ASIC, and a USB A to USB Mini B cable to connect the ASIC to the Raspberry Pi. I’m using a 60W power supply, which seems to be working fine for defcoin (Scrypt) mining. These ASICs can also mine Bitcoin at the same time, but you may need a beefier power supply if you want to do that. The Raspberry Pi can be purchased at any number of places- Amazon, SparkFun, AdaFruit, etc. I’m using the Model B because I had one already, and also because it has a built in ethernet port that will make connecting to the internet easy. Make sure to get an SD Card and a micro USB power adapter to get the Pi up and running too. 2) Software If you haven’t already, download the defcoin wallet from defcoin.org. If you want to do pooled mining, create an account for one of the defcoin pools, such as redbaron.us or whichever other pool you want to mine. Once you’ve created a pool account, make sure to create a worker too (for MPOS pools, that will be under My Account > My Workers). The password for your worker does not have to be the same as the password for your pool account (and it probably shouldn’t be). Next, download the latest Raspbian image from raspberrypi.org/downloads/ and install the image to your SD card. Instructions for installing the image can be found here. If you are using the dd method on a Mac, make sure to use /dev/rdiskX instead of /dev/diskX - both will work, but rdiskX is much faster. Once you have the image installed, put the SD card in the Raspberry Pi, connect the Pi to your network, and connect the Pi to your micro USB power adapter to power it on. Next, SSH in to your Raspberry Pi with the default username and password pi/raspberry. I use nMap to find the IP address that has been assigned to my Pi. You can also use an HDMI display and a USB keyboard to log in instead of using SSH. After logging in for the first time, run through the wizard that comes up to configure your Raspberry Pi. The defaults are fine for most things, just make sure that you don’t skip the step to expand the filesystem to use the rest of your SD card. If you don’t expand the filesystem, there won’t be enough space for other software. Once you have Raspbian installed, and have gotten through all of the first login setup stuff (which will likely end with a reboot), log back in to the Raspberry Pi with the pi user. From the command line, run sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade There are some stability issues with USB communication between the Raspberry Pi and the Gridseed ASIC. Enabling SLUB debugging seems to resolve this, at least well enough to prevent the Raspberry Pi from freezing every so often. Open the /boot/cmdline.txt file, and add the following text to the end of the line. Don’t add a new line, just add this to the end. You can use vi, nano, or whatever your favorite text editor is to do this.
Reboot the Raspberry Pi once you’ve added that flag to your /boot/cmdline.txt file.
sudo shutdown -r now
Log back in with the pi user once the Raspberry Pi is finished rebooting. The mining software that we’re going to use is a customized version of cgminer that has support for the Gridseed GC3355 chips that are used in our ASIC. There are a number of different mining programs out there, this is just what has been working the best for me so far. First, install git and dependencies needed to compile cgminer.
cd cgminer-gc3355 autoreconf -i ./configure --enable-scrypt --enable-gridseed make
Once the make command finishes, we’re ready to run the mining software. You can also run make install if you want to install the software, but running it out of the build directory works just fine. Plug in the power supply for your ASIC, and connect the ASIC to it. Connect the USB cable to the ASIC and to your Raspberry Pi. Run the mining software by running the following command. The -o option specifies your pool URL, the -u option specifies your username and the workername that you set up for the pool, and the -p option is the password for your worker. There are a couple of options available that are specific to the gridseed ASICs, and those will be placed after --gridseed-options. The freq=850 option sets the clock frequency of the ASIC to 850 MHz. There are other clock options available, but 850 seems to be working best for me. I was getting hardware errors at 900, and a lower average hash rate. I am getting about 360 KH/s with the clock frequency set to 850.
This command needs to be run with sudo in order to access the USB hardware. You can also create another user specifically for mining, or grant the pi user the appropriate permissions if you don’t want to run cgminer as root. When you run this command, you should see output from cgminer showing that it is communicating with the mining pool, and something showing your hash rate. If you’ve gotten this far, and you’re seeing output from cgminer showing a hash rate, congratulations, you’re mining defcoins with your ASIC! There are just a couple more steps to do if you want to let your Raspberry Pi and ASIC continue mining without needing you to be logged in. To keep cgminer running after I log out, I am using nohup. You could also use screen instead of nohup. Create a script (startMiner.sh) by running the following commands.
If you run this command with sudo startMiner.sh, cgminer will run in the background, and will continue running after you log out. If you want to have this run when your Raspberry Pi boots, modify your /etc/rc.local script so that it executes this startMiner.sh script. Your /etc/rc.local file will end up looking like this:
# Print the IP address _IP=$(hostname -I) || true if [ "$_IP" ]; then printf "My IP address is %s\n" "$_IP" fi /home/pi/startMiner.sh exit 0
Brand new to crypto, figured screw it - doge! Do have some questions, though.
I've looked over getting started, FAQs, etc. I've joined a pool and set up cgminer, but I have a few questions.
1. How much stress can I expect from using cgminer on its default setting? Such as no I=x flag, which I assume sort of uses the.. background processing power? It's very hard to understand. I just don't want to overtax my computer or suck 100x the power I normally use. Just an.. idle-ish miner, is that possible?
2. In the beginning, I laughed at bitcoin, as many others did, and regret it, I do! But like any stock/bond/investment, hindsight is 20/20. Now I understand doge is getting on its feet here, but is it really worth it to stand back and say this is going somewhere? I mean should I really give it my all in terms of amassing as much as I can? Again, I suppose the same could be said of penny stocks.
3. Is my wallet not safe on my computer? I suppose I should look into how to mirror it onto a USB drive or something like that, but are there really forces out there that can yank your wallet out from under you?
It's not really getting on the ground floor, but here I am, and I'm ready to try. I'm just not sure how serious I should take dogecoin, you know what I mean? It's funny, and lighthearted, but I'm just curious how much I should invest myself in it. Thank you! I guess this is my thingy? DF9jZUFtDfHE9YUXjyFy3A6MFj4ohJ7f7a - that's what the wallet application tells me. To be honest all of this hurts my brain something fierce but it seems really interesting.
I'm able to hit 730Mh/s bitcoin mining with my Asus Matrix Platinum [email protected] 1250mhz core/1725mhz memory...but for some reason i cannot get over 450kH/s reliably litecoin mining. Using the configs they use in https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin/wiki/Mining-hardware-comparison Using either CGMiner or GUIMiner - none of the 7970 configs are very good for me The highest stable memory i can get is 1725mhz...so using 0.57 rule, ive tried a core speed 984mhz..still doesnt help too much. Anyone have other configs i can try? I'm using give-me-ltc.com as my pool. EDIT: Also using the newest 13.3 Beta drivers...i wonder if this has something to do with it..or maybe i should change pools.. These are the flags im using:
Hello, I started out with a test Win7 install and switched to Ubuntu, but CPU usage is pegged in Linux and was nothing in Windows. I went with a cheap CPU (Ivy Bridge Celeron) not expecting to need it for much. I looked around saw warnings about intensity, but. That was mostly for bitcoin mining. Am I missing a cgminer flag or have a misconfiguration? Thanks.
Hey all! I setup CGMiner on a RaspberyPI with a ASICMiner USB miner (330MH/s) with the intent of setting it up in my office as a talking point/cool display as we love bitcoin. I installed a number of libraries, CGMiner, plugged in the miner, got a wallet, joined a pool... Ya know... All the good stuff. The only bummer is that when I start up CGMiner, it looks like the miner is failing to start:
7970 mining at a good speed, but i'm not seeing alot of accepted shares
I moved all of my bitcoin miners over to litecoin when my bfl rigs came in. The 7970 is mining at just under 700, but i'm not seeing a lot of accepted shares. This is what I see I'm using these flags: cgminer --scrypt -o http://p2pool.org:9327 -u xxx -p xxx -I 13 -g 2 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 8192 --gpu-powertune 20 Is this normal? Coming from btc i'm used to seeing a long pour of accepted shares with a splash of work update requests. Side question: I used to be able to force a framerate on the gpu when mining btc, can I do that with cgminer? I can't even use my mining rig unless i'm RDP'd into it and use the rdp vid drivers. EDIT: p2pool was my problem, i switched to hashfaster and am doing much better.
I'm having a pretty strange issue. Up until a few months ago I was mining bitcoins using cgminer just fine. I stopped because it became entirely unprofitable. I decided this week to start mining litecoins and read up on what I needed. I created a new cgminer folder specifically for litecoin with a different version number of cgminer to avoid any conflicts. I eventually got it all ready and went to run cgminer and as soon as I double clicked the batch file I made it cause a BSOD. The message with the BSOD is "Bad_Pool_Header". I thought that I may have had some incorrect flags in my batch file or maybe I was trying to push it too hard. I decided to see what would happen if I tried to run my old bitcoin mining config and it too instantly causes a BSOD. The only thing I can think of that has changed about my system is that I got a new PC case and changed the slot the graphics card was in, but I removed all the drivers and re-installed them when I did that. From here things only get weirder. I had been on Catalyst 13.12 and decided to downgrade to 13.1 to see if that would help. That didn't do anything so I decided to see if I could get guiminer going just to see if it was all miners. I tried to start guiminer and it instantly gave me a "guiminer has stopped working" message. Long story short when I downgraded my drivers 13.1 refused to install openCl properly even after several reinstall attempts. I updated to 13.4 and now openCL is fine and guiminer works just fine using cgminer 3.7.2. However, when I attempt to run cgminer itself I still get a BSOD. I can't understand why when I run a freshly unpacked cgminer I get a BSOD, but if I run guiminer and it uses cgminer it works fine. I'm pretty content with guiminer, but want to figure out what the issue is just in case it may cause other issues later. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before?

GUIminer returning "Verification failed, check hardware" on HD 6870. BitMinters Client is working though.
I want to use GUIminer and more specifiaclly I want to use the poclbm kernel because it allows me to set the -f 60 flag, which allows me to play games (league of legends) while mining. However GUIminer returns:

I googled for a solution which said I should downgrade to CCC version 11.11, however this is not ideal since it would negatively affect my gaming experience. I also heard that BitMinter had a very easy to use client, so I decided to give that a shot. This client is indeed easy, as it immediatly worked! My work got accepted for the most part (5 stale out of 300+ proofs of work), however this is not the pool I want to mine in and the client does not allow me to set any parameters. Anyone know a solution, obviously there are miners that could work with my card (BitMinter), but I did not find them yet. I tried GUIminer, Phoenix and CGminer. PS: Please don't comment on whether mining is viable for me. I want to participate in Bitcoin mining with my gaming PC, my question is not about viability.
