1  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: GPU Mining on OS X Lion (10.7) on: July 29, 2011, 03:05:18 PM
I've been getting similar problems.  After going up to lion and reinstalling pyopencl, any time I try to run POCLBM (old version) I get this as an output:

Mac-Computer:bitcoin <user>$ python -d 0 --user <ID> --pass <pass> -w 32

This never happened in SnowLeopard (10.6).

I find it a little annoying that I have been a member, have been active (mostly reading and only replying where it was relevant) and I am now locked down.  I can understand the spam problem though. 

At least I won't have far to go eh?  Just gotta wait for the timer to run up while reading up on mining issues.

This is happening to everyone.  I can only assume that with the news message that they are moving servers.

Registration temporarily closed until pool moved to another server.

Same.  I've got all miners down, but my machines are running, as are the miners.  I'm also getting strange numbers for payout prediction "2.4486948112e+13".

I'm showing the same round and block # has been recycling for a while now, constantly having the timer reset after about 8 minutes on the stats page.


Also saw this on the stats page: Pool Luck:  -11.32% 

That's kinda worrisome and strange.

LOL this miner runs times better in my Win7 VM than my native official client on Mac OS. Is there a way to run it native on Mac OS?

I'd like to second this.  I'm having one heck of a time getting this compiled and running on Mac OS.  Ver 10.6.x with xcode tools installed.

It keeps hanging on jwasm, but that doesn't seem to be set to run a make that OSX could handle.

6  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: poclbm using CPU 100% even though using GPU? on: May 04, 2011, 03:30:52 AM
I know this is an ATI focused thread, but I'm seeing the same behavior on my nVidia cards. 

Two seperate systems.

1 - quad core 2.66ghz core2, GTX 260, drivers 270.61. OS Win7 64.
2 - Dual core 2.93ghz core2, GTX 460, drivers 270.61. OS WinXP 32.

On system 2, poclbm.exe hits 50% cpu (all of 1 core) and causes the temperatures to skyrocket when running only on GPU.
On system 1, poclbm.exe hits 25% cpu (again 1 core). 

Since I do not have multiple GPUs in each of these systems, I can't confirm if its the same problem, but considering the other symptoms marked here...

So, it seems that each instance of the miner is using the GPU, but also maxing out 1 core of the CPU per GPU client loaded.  This has been stated many times by m0mchil to not be proper behavior.  Seems it's not relegated just to the ATI cards any more.
