HAVE YOU LOOKED AT ALLIUM?
====================

While digging through GitHub, I came across FancyIX's CCminer 0.51.  With his version, he has improved Allium algo (Garlic Coin, GRLC) by ~50% from TPruvot's CCminer 2.31.  I was mining with a single GPU, an EVGA 1650, and received ~2kH/s with TPruvot's version, and ~3kH/s with FancyIX's.  FancyIX releases his miners for free.

Unfortunately, his miner does not allow for ZIL mining.  I really have adopted the use of Zilliqa mining seriously, and would appreciate if Team Black could add Allium algo.  I am sure you could improve the code to a new level, and you have the most reasonable fee.

Hope things are well with you, the summer is really hot here.  L8r...       --scryptr

USING "-march=native" WORKS
====================

Editing the "build-armv8.sh" script to read "-march=native" resulted in a working executable.  My Rpi-4 now mines "Yescript" algo at ~66H/s, getting a share once every 24 minutes on average.  Slow, perhaps, but Yescript is a top earner on ZergPool today.

Thanks!       --scryptr

Although I have been able to compile Xmrig on my Rpi 4, none of your recent crypto builds worked.  I finally was able to purchase an Rpi 5 from Adafruit and will try again.

I have several Orange Pi 5 boards mining Verus coin.  I'll be able to check the Rpi 5 hashrate in comparison.

I think I missed this point. The Windows builds won't work on RPI or OPi, they're for X86_64 not Arm.
If you have problems compiling on RPi (or OPi) with Linux it's probably missing packages. It may depend on how you install Linux.
If you installed from an custom image file it may not have all necessary packages. I installed using using normal installation
procedure for Ubuntu using the Arm server ISO and had no issues compiling afterward.

THE CODE COMPILES
=============

My Rpi 5 and Opi 5 units, also my Rpi 4, have all successfully compiled v24.1.  I used the "ARMv8" build script after finding a hint in the above reply. The "necessary packages" may have been missing.

After using your very latest prerequisite string, the build went to completion.  The executable worked on each unit, printing out help.txt and Version info in each case.  But, the Rpi 4 errored out when attempting to mine YescriptR16, likely due to its incomplete set of crypto instructions.  It is currently mining Zephyr with XMRIG 6.20, slowly.

The Rpi 5 mines Verus at about 4850kH/s, the Opi 5 units at about 6800kH/s.  They are using Oink's ccminer.  I also have some older CPUs mining Verus with Monk's ccminer.

Perhaps you should look into a CCminer-Opt branch?  A fine tune may really improve performance.  Monk's version gets a lot of rejects at times.       --scryptr

R-PI MAY BE CRIPPLED--

This is an old post from "oink70", who optimized Monkins' Verushash CCminer:

        "Oink70 (2 yr. ago on Reddit)

Mining Verus is impossible on any Raspberry device. The Raspberry company did not license all CPU instructions, so the required functions are not available on Raspberry branded devices.  As far as I know Raspberry is the only brand that crippled the CPU, so any other ARM device should work."

I picked up your recent interest in coding for ARM processors after reading the CryptoMining-Blog post on VerusCoin (VRSC) mining.  I have been able to compile XMrig and tpruvot's CPUminer-Multi on my R-pi.  The above CCminer packages (Monkins & Oink70) will not compile.

I am currently mining VerusCoin on a new Orange Pi 5.  Verushash and MinotaurX look like good targets for coding, if you are able to find the right functions.

Raspberry Pi 5 is scheduled to hit the market this month, I believe.  The CPU runs at 2.4 GHZ.

Hope to see some fresh code to match!       --scryptr

Hold off on testing, it won't compile.

ANSWERING MY OWN POST
=================

The Rpi 5 supposedly has the crypto instructions. See below:

(QUOTE  from Reddit)


"@hyc
 
Amazing that they finally quit being cheapskates and decided to pay for the crypto instruction extension that every other ARM producer in the world has included for the past 8 years already. I wonder what changed their minds.

So itís another Broadcom chip quadcore with only 2MB L3 cache. I.e., only enough cache to run a single RandomX thread. The other cores will be wasted.

These have always been and continue to be worthless junk. For practical use these days you need closer to 4GB RAM per core, and of course 2MB cache per core. This thing only has enough resources to utilize 1 (core."

Apologies to the quoted Reddit user.  The post is 5 months old, and from a MoneroMiniing thread.  I have not done a thorough search to verify its validity.

RE: ARM UPDATE --

I tried to compile the latest source on my 8GB Rpi 4, utilizing the ARM build script.  It failed with an error pointing to line 1247.  The line instruction "-flax-vector-conversions" was in the ARM build script CFLAGS portion, so I did not edit that script, I just ran it.

I can run the build and log the entire thing in a text file, or just cut-n-paste the final error details, then pass the log to you in an email, zipped.  Let me know what you might want.       --scryptr

DynexSolve will only run on CPUs and nVidia GPUs.  There are no FPGAs or ASICs that can mine DNX.  DNX is not a coin that uses a Cryptonight-based algorithm.

If you have a bag of coins that were once called Dynex, they will likely not fit in a current Dynex wallet.  The information that you post about appears unrelated to DNX as it is mined and traded with the current Dynex softwares.       --scryptr

KEEP IN MIND THAT ETH MINING STILL PAYS BEST--

The new GPUs with more than 4GB VRAM will mine ETH.  Miners with older, smaller cards need software that runs on older systems.  The algorithms that you want to incorporate in your miner are just fine for the smaller cards.

Ethereum Classic (ETC) had a spike last week that had it paying second only to ETH.  Not too long ago, before it forked, it paid better.  I just need software that is going to run on my Linux rigs.  VTC is my top earner for my smaller cards, but nVidia is left out.  Software designed for the latest and greatest isn't running on smaller GPUs that fit the algos (VTC, ETC, ZIL) that need less VRAM.

My 1060ti and 1060 3GB cards are mining Haven (XHV) just now, about $10 a day's worth.

How are you getting so much with these cards and this coin? https://ibb.co/8j14kqW

9 CARDS TOTAL, 2 RIGS--

My 1050ti rig has 5 cards, I really need to add one more.  My 1060 3GB rig has 4 cards.  I can't mine VTC with either one.  They easily mine $10 a day in Haven (XHV).  I mark up XHV on the exchange and wait.

Sp_ somehow doesn't feel like packaging his miner to be compatible with older systems, like PhoenixMiner and Gminer, and others.  I have posted on both PhoenixMiner and Gminer BCT forums and asked for VertHash inclusion.  Those 2 miners run reliably, and have good "extra" features.

I have donated to sp_ several times in the past.  The size of the donations is worth a lot more in fiat today.  A BTC could once purchase a French 20 Frank gold coin.  Now, it can purchase close to 300.

And, I don't have any "1060ti" cards, if any were ever made as OEM (?).  It is a typo.

--scryptr

P.S.  Just being frank.

What are your issues? I'm running 6x p106-090 (1060 3GB) and also one 1050 ti in workstation. I can make more with VTC.

Running Windows 10 Enterprise N LTSC.

You need to undervolt the 1060s to 825mv, same with 1050 Ti, use mem tweak options from t-rex miner, and use spminer #4 cuda 10 fix.

Image of six cards running, rig alive for maybe two days: https://ibb.co/HKr7L8f

With this settings running on mining pool hub, it all works out as expected for me.

EDIT: for now SPminer is the best option, maybe not perfect but best. I asked trex, they said maybe but busy with ethash and octopus, phoenix ignored me...

With current difficulties/prices, both VTC and ETC are the best options for these cards.

EDIT 2: https://ibb.co/8YnJzH1 best options IMHO, this is worked out with 6x p106 and electric cost of $0.27, using best hashrates for my setup on both algos.....

YOU MUST NOT HAVE READ MY POSTS--

I can not run spminer in my LINUX rigs.  I am not going to change my system when several high-quality miners can be flipped into place and run with a single command line.

I understand how to calculate profits.  Other miners available run on my system even though it is old.  I want a reliable VTC miner that just works without extraneous, malformed library calls.       --scryptr
